Kid's Clothes Week Sewalong June 2015: Traveling!

kid's clothes week

I don't know how they do it, but the organisers of the Kid's Clothes Week challenge have come up with ANOTHER awesome and inspiring theme for this summer. Although following the theme of KCW is entirely optional (the only stipulation is to sew for at least one hour per day for a week), 'Traveling' can be taken in soooo many directions that it'd be hard to not come up with a project plan that could be even vaguely linked to it.

This season's challenge starts really soon: like, TOMORROW! And as ever they have had some really great blog posts packed with interesting suggestions of how to interpret the theme, if you wish to. There are some lovely ideas linked to transportation, holidaying at the seaside and different parts of the world.  Personally, I'm really into the idea of road trips, which could be a fun direction to take the traveling theme. That said, I'm pretty sure of what I'm going to make now and the two ideas I'm currently rolling with don't really link to that.

One of the things I love about KCW, particularly when the theme is as open to interpretation as this one, is that it can be a kick up the bum to simply push forward with some ideas that have been brewing away anyhow. So that is what I am going to do. However, I have included a few other potential points of inspiration for the Traveling theme that have been lurking on my Pinterest boards.

So, what about you? Are you going to take part this season? If you are, or even if you aren't, what direction will/would you take this particular theme?

Hi Zoe! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with! I am taking part but I haven't thought about the theme yet as I have 3 unfinished items from last KCW I want to get done first 😳

This sounds like a really good theme. I would love to take part in this, your inspiration garments are lovely. However, Sprogzilla is now the same height as me and just wants to wear band t-shirts and hoodies and sulk about being a bit EMO. I don't know about her but I would wear that Boden t-shirt in a heartbeat. Really looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Xx

Blimey that's tomorrow! Oops missed the summer challenge somehow! I have loads going on this coming week, meaning I should not do it! But I did no sewing at all last week and I can feel the affect on my soul and happiness: So I may put my thinking cap on tonight.

Hi Zoe, love this idea and have signed up. It's certainly going to give me a gentle push into making the dress for my little one that I've been thinking about. Seaside theme for me.
