KCWC 2011 day 2: PJ pants

A productive morning, so here's our KCWC update:  We got our bias binding, some ribbon and also managed to thrift a few pieces of fabric from the lady who runs the charity shop (there was a bag of fabric hidden in the back room which she let us rummage through). 

So while Little Miss had her nap I managed to finish off the dress from yesterday (a complete bodge job, but one I learned SO much from, so worth it) and also I have done as much as I can on a pair of PJ pants for My Boy - I will need to fit/measure them on him when he's home from school before I can finish them off. Again, I used an existing pair to cut around rather than following a pattern - nothing tremendous but the real lesson was in the making. They should have taken about 20 mins but I had to re-do one of the seams after not paying sufficient attention the first time so they took a bit longer. 

*Whispers* I have some pretty fabric to make a tunic top tomorrow and I am still a little scared to use it - wish me luck!

To find out more about the Kids Clothes Week Challenge 2011, head over to the Elsie Marley blog.

Oh and I almost forgot, there is a great round up featuring loads more patterns and tutes here if you fancy taking up the challenge.


  1. I love the little dress. Its so sweet.

  2. The dress is really cute, feels great to see you kids dressed in clothes that you have made with love- well done. Good luck with tomorrows top - its fun seeing what everyone else is making. Can recommend the Oliver & S patterns for easy and cute retro clothes - I made a red riding hood cape over past 2 days.

  3. @craftysquirrel - ooh, I'll check those out, thanks xx
