Sewing for your kiddies class! 3

For a long time now I’ve been promising a good number of you that I’d be doing some sewing for toddlers classes and kids clothes classes. We really love sewing for the little buggers. It is so simple and really uses very little fabric. You can really do a lot of repurposing when sewing for smaller kids, too.

So are you ready? In April we’ll be having two great classes. I’ve been in touch with a fantastic designer that I absolutely love! Figgy’s Patterns are great! It is so hard to find patterns for boys that are modern and fun without being over detailed and difficult to sew. Shelly really made it easy to sew cool, fun, and easy clothes for your little guys. The patterns we’ll be working from this month are certainly unisex and suitable for beginner sewers!

I’ve been going crazy for the Dapper’s. Elastic waistband pants are great for kids but I hate that they always end up looking too homemade. These pants are great – flat front, pockets, elastic in the back! Rex loves wearing his – your kids will too!

The other class we’ve got coming up is the Tee for Two. This is a raglan tee shirt for boys and girls. The girls’ design has a little gathering under the neckband – adorable! Of course, I left the frills off of Rex’s and instead opted for a repurposed look for him. We’ve always found it challenging to find nice knit fabrics (don’t worry – we’re working on that) so I used two tees that were too small for my older kids to make one for Rex! I love the results! Check him out in this action shot – by the way, the hat is also made by mommy – it’s from One Yard Wonders!

Tee for Two April 9th, 11am – 2pm, $35 (supply list for class)

Dapper Dillingers April 13th, 6 – 9pm, $35 (supply list for class)

    yes! i will take a waiting list of people who can’t make it for that scheduled class! send me an email at and let me know how to contact you as well as what times/ days work best for you. we usually poll our waiting lists to see what days are popular… it also helps us schedule better in the future!

    I LOVE the sounds of those classes. I really want to do the Tee for two, but I’m out of town at a wedding that weekend. Will you have it another time?

    And Rex is waaaay too cute!!!
