Stash Less in action today my friends. Rather than purchasing patterns that I don't have time to use, I am listing them here, so I can go back to them when I do.
New stuff I've found or have been meaning to try.
Just last week I saw this adorable pattern for the first time - the Mini Hudson pants. I so so love the shape of it and am particularly obsessed with the mid calf version. The only issue is that none of my kids like wearing trackies. I don't know why….. wish I did. My last post features me basting the quilt while wearing trackies so it isn't like I haven't been setting an example.
Another pattern that I have never made, but have been meaning to for the longest time, is the Flashback Skinny Tee. Brienne has some gorgeous versions of it here with some fabric paint detailing. I will get to this the next time I need to make some for my boy child. There are so many amazing versions of this tee on the web if you are looking for inspiration.
Oliver and S has three patterns that I am a little obsessed with and again don't own. The playtime tunic I have mentioned before. And then recently the Bento Tee. So so cute. I'm also loving some of the roller skating dresses I'm seeing around the traps - like this one from Kristin at Skirt as a Top. She also has made a super cute version of the Mini Hudson pants.
I also love the Edelweiss Dress by Hey June. I haven't made it but I mean too. There are a few super pretty versions if you google images it.
If you are looking for homemade kids clothes inspiration you can't go past the online magazine Stylo. Goregeous styling, all the patterns are detailed, and it really shows what you can do if you get a little creative.
My other favourite source of inspiration is Kids Clothes Week. I participate now and then when I need a bit of a kick start. It now runs four times a year so there is always one just around the corner. It's free to sign up to their site and then you get access to all the photos and details of the pretty pretty things people are making. It is a sure fire way to find new patterns and get inspired. There are SO. many. gorgeous. patterns in their database. Patterns I hadn't come across before. Having a look at the old photo pool though (if you aren't a signer-uperer) is also an option.
Things that I have talked about before on the blog
My favourite sewing book for kids - Happy Handmade
Also in the past I've talked about baby sweaters, my favourite girl cardy's and my favourite girls dress pattern. I've also done a post on the super gorgeous City Gym Shorts which has to be THE best shorts pattern ever, and the beautifully shaped Banyan Tee.
And finally a totally random post from Brienne about why she sews and knits with a quote I just love.
I'll be back on Friday with my all-time favourite sewing trick! Until then I'd love to hear your favourite kid patterns?
