Kids Clothes Week Challenge - Day 1

This time last year I stumbled upon Kids Clothes Week Challenge on Elsie Marley, and I had every intention of joining in...but didnt.

This year, I almost dont have a choice...my kids have out-grown all the hand-me-downs from their cousins (and actually are bigger than most of their cousins now!) and I can't really let them run around naked, even if the weather is finally warming up!

For the challenge, you're supposed to sew an hour a day on kids clothes.  My personal goal is to sew an hour a day per child.  I have a tendency to want to make fun girly outfits for my 3 year old, but my two boys need clothes MUCH more than she does!

Here's last night's hard work:

I got a few yards of stretchy knit from the thrift store awhile back, so I thought I'd try to make some easy t-shirts.  It would have helped if I'd thought to take my kids' measurements before I sent them to bed last night!  I ended up re-doing a lot after trying them on the kids this morning.

I also cut out a pair of shorts for my 2 year old (it took an hour because I had to print the pattern too - more on that for Day 2s post!) and I sewed them up this morning, only to realize they were JUST BARELY to small!

The good news is, they'll make great pants for the baby!
