Kids Clothes Week

I only just found out about Kids Clothes Week a couple of days ago, and decided today that I might give it a go! It started yesterday, so I'm a day late with started, but I think I more than made up for it!

The temperatures have dropped quite a bit really suddenly in the last week, and I cannot, for the life of me, find the big box of Kason and Cohen's Winter PJs! I know I stashed it somewhere 'handy' not all that long ago...apparently that 'handy' spot isn't really that handy, though - I've searched everywhere! I've been hesitant to go out and buy more PJs because I know that as soon as I do that, the box will magically reappear. So...I found an old flannelette cot sheet, chopped that up to make two pairs of PJ pants. I picked up four plain long-sleeved tees ($3 each - thank you, Kmart!) this morning, and I've appliqued those to match the new pants, and a pair of pants I made a few weeks ago (I originally made them to go with singlets) - so, as of this afternoon, Cohen and Kason now have two extra pairs of Autumn PJs each that they didn't have this morning :-)

While we were out this morning, I came across some women's t-shirts marked down to $1.00 each. I bought three of those and made them into two long-sleeved tees for the boys. I also whipped up another 'Scooter' tee while I was at it.

So, if you're keeping count, today I sewed:
* 2 pairs of flannelette PJ pants
* 3 long-sleeved t-shirts

and appliqued:
* 4 Autumn PJ tops

Yup...thinking I've made up for starting KCW a day late :-)
