Here are my outfits for Kids Clothing Week Challenge. I know I'm a week late in posting but last week was my birthday and I was sewing for myself too, I'll post that later. So we finally had some nice weather and the kids were able to wear their new outfits to the park and I was able to get some pics, and use my birthday present. I got a Nikon D5000, I'm still just using the auto setting but I love it. I can not wait to learn how to really use it.
Breanna's Butterfly outfit.
Breanna really needed some shorts but I do not like the tiny little short ones they sell. I used a McCall pattern and lengthen them to a walking short style. The fabric is a light twill I bought at Joan's a few years ago. For her shirt I used a thin knit material straps, I did not have enough so I had to add a band and trim it in a dark purple. I love how it ended up turning out. I used under wonder for the butterflies and then sewed them on.
Nolan's Baseball Outfit
Nolan's shirt I bought at Hobby Lobby for $1.50. The ball ball is a piece of white interlock, I ironed on some fusible fleece to the back and then embroidered the red stitching on the ball. Then I freezer paper stenciled the words Play Ball.
His shorts I made using my husband's old work shirt. It is just a simple elastic waist and has large side cargo pockets. One of the pockets have a baseball glove, bat and ball patch. He love the patch but thinks it's a sticker and wants to put it on his shirt.
I have made a few more outfits for the summer that I will be sharing.
