Kids Clothing Week Challenge Products didn't know I was participating in Elsie Marley's Kids Clothing Week Challenge?  Ha!  I've had that little button over there, but I hadn't a second extra this week to post anything.  Though I haven't posted, I have made a few things for this challenge that I'll share with you {technically not too late since today is really the last day of the challenge}.  I didn't have time to come up with my own creations, but it sure is nice to just sit down with a good tutorial or pattern once in a while.  I'd highly recommend the ones I mention below!  Hoping to have more time to sew/post soon.  The end of the school year is super crazy, but it'll be over in two weeks!  Wow!  On with the clothes...

The first thing I made this week was a couple pairs of Old School Shorts from an awesome tutorial!  I made one pair to match that tank top I showed you a few weeks ago.  They look super cute together so I'll show you a pic of that outfit on EG when I get one :)

The other day I saw this cute tutorial for a quick and easy visor and knew I had to make one for tee ball practice.  Next time I'll make the brim a little bigger and the strap a little longer, but I think it's too cute!

Next, I tried out Lil Blue Boo's new pattern...the Maliboo Romper.  LOVE it!  I had tons of this knit fabric (you've probably seen some other projects with it around here...) and it turned out perfect for a fun, bright romper.  EG loved this too...did not want to take it off!  She said, "can't this just be pjs?"  I think it's a winner!  I followed the pattern, and then added the ruffles to give it a little something extra.

Finally, I made a quick little tutu/skirt for EG from a formal skirt that I purchased at a local thrift store.  Score!

All in all, I don't think that's too bad of a showing for a super busy week!  LOL.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Everything is cute but my favourite are the shorts and matching tank top. Sewing all these would take me at least one month!

  2. You are so talented! We featured your darling peek-a-bow shorts today!
    Happy weekend :) xoxo
