KCWC 2013


It is Kids Clothes Week time.
Since the littlest guy is starting to be an eater now (funny thing, with Kaya I couldn’t wait, this time I really wanted Batu to stay a baby just a little bit longer…), it was high time for some washable bibs. I used an old outdoor table cloth made out of waxed cotton. It had some bad stains on it so I was going to throw it out – just in time I realised it was the perfect material for a couple of bibs. Bon appetit!

I have enjoyed this bit of umph to get sewing a lot in the past, but I shall be realistic.
We are going to move at the end of this week.
What I really want to do is put all my fabrics and the sewing machine in a box.

I’m still doing a little non-kids sewing for myself, I’ll show you tomorrow – after that I am guessing the machine will remain quiet for a bit while I get on with other things. But do check out the KCWC blog; lovely things are happening there!

    I’ve been thinking I may join up this time – you’ve always inspired me with the sweet outfits you’ve made in the past! I love that Jotta Lansdotter’s book – I think I’ll pull it out for a peek. 🙂

  2. What a great idea with the old table cloth. I don’t think I would have thought of that. My youngest has pretty much outgrown even the bib stage – sad. 😦

    Lotta has the coolest patterns! Her book on hand printing is also a great inspiration!
