This week will will be joining all the other mom's (and potentially grandmas, dads, grandpas) that are sewing for Kids Clothing Week. This is our first go at it, but we are really excited to join the fun. This week we will mostly be giving a quick preview of our accomplishments with the tutorial to follow later (so that we can put more time into sewing than blogging).
Today I made Heber a newsboy cap. I have been dying to make him one pretty much since the moment he was born, but I couldn't find just the right pattern or look. Last week Scary hopped by to visit JoAnn's Daffodil Dash sale. They happened to have McCall patterns on sale. The very first page of the childrens clothing had the newsboy cap I had been searching for the last year. She almost missed it, but luckily for me she didn't and she told me about it. Yay, I was really excited! So excited that I went to 2 different JoAnn's to get it (it was sold out of the first one) all in the middle of flash flooding. This was the final perfect touch to complete his Common Axis look!
I had to make some adjustments to the pattern, so I will let you know how to do it just right sometime in the near future, but the pattern was fairly awesome. It was a McCall pattern number M6575. I hope you're getting excited for what Scary and Jo have cooking in KCW projects. Prepare to be amazed.
