KCW Day 5

I am really excited about the progress I've made in sewing for my kids this week!  I planned a lot of projects (too many!), and KCW has been a great incentive for me to get working!

This project is for my youngest, Norman.  He wears lots of hand-me-downs from his brothers, so it's not exactly that he needs a lot of new clothes.  The problem is that by the time the clothes make it down to him, I am sick of them!!!  So this guy probably ends up with more clothes than is strictly necessary.

I designed this outfit after I found the green pants fabric at JoAnn's and fell in love with the color.  I knew right away that the pocket detail on the sides of the pants would be a perfect way to do some top stitching to tie the navy from the shirt in with the pants.

Another shirt from Lands' End, and another applique!  I really can sew other things besides appliques :)  I guess when I started planning things to sew for the fall and winter, I didn't quite realize how many appliqued shirts I would be making!

The pants are flat-front, top stitched with a wide double needle.

And here is the proud owner of the new clothes!  Norman gets super excited when I sew things for him.  He likes to come with me to the fabric store and plan all sorts of fun things that he wants me to sew for him :)

I have two more projects to show you that I finished up yesterday, and I have high hopes for getting even more done this weekend.  Check back soon to see what else I've been working on!


  1. Great job, Heidi! I didn't realize how talented you are. Norman is getting sooo big! --Doreen
