Shweshwe sarouel

Shweshwe sarouel

This is the second Sheshwe fabric that Emily from Stitch had sent me. The pattern is called New Mountain. I love that it is sort of optical illusion where you can either see a weave pattern or zigzag pattern. Sidra saw the fabric the other day and demanded a pair of pants to be made…

Duff’s clothes

Duff’s clothes

Dog clothes are probably not something necessary, except maybe in cold weather. But I’ve got to admit that dog in clothes are probably one of the cutest things in the world. At first, I just tried my hand on recycling Sidra’s old T-shirts into Duff’s t-shirt using this free pattern from Free Dog Clothes Pattern…

Denim knee-length pants

Denim knee-length pants

As he is growing, Sidra is in constant need of new clothes, especially pants. He doesn’t like wearing long pants in spring and summer, and asked me to make more knee-length pants. This is a new pair that I’ve made using a Japanese pattern book. By the way, I’ve been using Japanese pattern books for…

Banana cut pants and grey sarouel

Banana cut pants and grey sarouel

Let’s continue celebrating the boy and here’s a couple more pants for Sidra! This year I don’t think I will make him more tops because he prefers wearing T-shirts than shirts. Most of them are from Threadless or H&M with interesting prints on the front. Maybe some jackets next autumn but more pants will be…

Do you follow the Celebrate the Boy series at Made by Rae and and Dana Made it? It’s an annual event of posts, tutorials, and inspirations for the boys in your life! This year it has started on February 25, 2013 and will last for two weeks. It’s the perfect time around because Sidra is…

‘Cause This is Thriller!

‘Cause This is Thriller!

Here’s Sidra’s Thriller jacket! Although it is not supposed to be a costume, I think it is appropriate to post it on Halloween. As I’ve posted before, I made this jacket on Sidra’s request for his fall jacket. He wanted either a Thriller or Beat It jacket. The number of zippers on Beat It jacket…

Knee-length linen pants

Knee-length linen pants

Thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post! I’ve been really enjoying the house and spending time doing things around the house that I no longer spent lots of my time in front of the computer or sewing machine. It’s quite a rare thing in my life! I’m not quite sure if…

Sleeveles T-shirts

Sleeveles T-shirts

  Next for KCWC 2012, four sleeveless T-shirts for Sidra! I bought most of Sidra’s t-shirts from Threadless, unfortunately they don’t have sleeveless ones for kids. As the weather is getting warmer, Sidra has started wearing sleeveless so I made these. They are recycled from adult-sized T-shirts that I got from the thrift store. The…

Camo pants

Camo pants

Another pair of camo print pants for Sidra. The fabric is medium weight Japanese cotton, very comfortable and suitable for children’s wear. Actually the print is more like swishes and drops of paint, but the whole look is similar to camo print. I think that was why Sidra chose this print when we went fabric…

Denim pants (Evan – Tamanegi kobo)

Denim pants (Evan – Tamanegi kobo)

  I had a metre of denim fabric in my stash -actually it was more like unshaved corduroy- that I planned to make a high-waisted skirt with. But recently I changed my mind and wanted to make a pair of pants with it. I don’t have too many pants in my wardrobe. Maybe one or…

Recycled Cargo pants

Recycled Cargo pants

  Sidra seems to be in constant needs of new pants. Several pants got short in what feels like overnight, the others got ripped and torn. Apparently it is rough out there playing with the boys. I told Sidra that I was going to make him a new pair of pants and asked if he…

Grey flared pants

Grey flared pants

  A leftover project! The fabric is grey wool blend leftover from my husband’s pants. It was quite a lot so initially I cut them for my pants, but something went wrong and I ended up with two left legs (>_<). So I cut them again to make a pair of pants for Sidra. The…
