Meg at Elsie Marley is once again organizing the Kids Clothes Week Challenge and this time I am actually going to attempt to sew along instead of merely ooohing and aaahing over all the cuteness that the other participants sew up. Meg is rounding up all sorts of great tutorials this week, so I am trying to plan ahead and be ready to sew when the 20th rolls around.
I also want to attempt to make a hat, I think the type I have in mind is called a newsboy or pageboy hat (?), sort of like this one. I’ve seen some very cute girl versions done up in brown corduroy, though Pia has informed me lately (and often) that she ‘hates’ brown (and has taken to stealing my brown pants to I can’t wear them). Perhaps a blue or green corduroy will have to do.
Since our monthly Underground Knitters meeting falls during kids clothes week challenge I will attempt to knit up a pair of mittens. This will hamper my wine intake, but that is usually a good thing.
Anyone else taking the kids clothes week challenge? Robin, I believe the secret to brotherly bliss is matching clothes, so you should really take this opportunity to sew some for Pea and Tea. I’m thinking plaid. Or navy gingham.
