KCWC Day 2: Fabric

Today's hour came in 5-10 minute snatches throughout the day.  A whole hour to sit down and do something I want without interruption sounds divine!  I didn't make as much progress as I'd hoped, but I did manage to:
  • add seam allowances to the patterns I traced yesterday,
  • pick out suitable fabric, and
  • launder the fabric.

The floral flannel and orange stretch terry are for Miss M's swimming cover-up and the plaid flannel and red stretch terry are for the Little Mister (with some tan flannel thrown in for good measure).  The flannels are from Black Friday at JoAnn a couple years ago and the terry cloths were in a box of knits I got at an estate sale last year.  It's nice to use up some of my stash!


  1. I've been slow to get much done for KCWC even though I'm participating so I think you're doing great! Can't wait to see the cover ups...thanks for sharing the link for LiEr's tutorial. I've added it to my list!

  2. I'm confused. What is KCWC? Color me uneducated.....

  3. KCWC stands for Kids Clothing Week Challenge. It's basically a sew-along featuring kids clothes and lasts a week! And I'm a very bad girl 'cause I never ever posted the finished results of mine! And at this point, probably never will. Oh dear...
