    15. Megan says:

      Very cool website! I’m trying to carve out a little sewing time (and sewing space!) while living with a 2 year old and 9 month old and a husband who works a lot. I’m excited to find such a great resource for making kids’ clothes!

    16. Tammi says:

      The Kids’ clothes month has been my favorite “theme” month. I am going to try several of the patterns and tutorials you have blogged about this month. Thanks for all the inspiration!

    17. Kahne says:

      I have never actually gotten around to making costumes, and this year we’ll be visiting Russia over Halloween so no trick-or-treating for us!

    18. Gosh, where did the month go! I had the intention of sharing so much more, but this month just flew by. Lots sewn up, but no pics. 🙁 It is hard for me to get my girl to take pics now that school has started though. She has no time for me and my silly picture taking! 🙂

      I loved looking at everything that was made and put up in the flickr group though–so many lovely creations!

      I hope you all will do this again. For me, every month is kid’s clothes month! 🙂

    52. Joanna says:

      I’m starting on my kids’ costumes in my head…but until then, I’m making my son some flannel jammies from a McCall’s pattern I found in a thrift store. Hopefully I can squeeze some corduroy jumpers in for my daughter before the month ends. It went by so fast!!

    66. veronica says:

      YAY for Halloween theme month!

    67. brandy says:

      So much inspiration!

    68. Alice says:

      The timing of the pants modifications was beyond perfect and so helpful. My friend and I had been sewing pants for our daughters and couldn’t figure out why they weren’t fitting properly (no ‘T’ in the pattern). I had no idea that’s what T meant – thought it meant ‘Toddler’ or ‘Tyke’.

      Thank you, perfect timing.

    69. sarahk says:

      No, the month can’t be almost over! I’ve still got more clothes to make!

    70. Tammy says:

      I seriously want to make the little hip skirts for my sisters, but we’ll see if they approve. They are older (9 and 11) and very fashion conscious. LOL

    71. Jill says:

      I posted a skirt on the flickr (Kids Clothes) group yesterday. Now I need more fabric – pick me!

    72. Johanna I. says:

      I guess I’m first. I could totally use the fabric – I’m starting on Christmas presents. Specifically, my mom has requested an Amy Butler bag. Thanks for all of these chances to win!

    73. andrea says:

      I was wondering if anyone has a mitten pattern that would work well with the patchwork scarf pattern. thanks!

    74. meg says:

      put my name in the hat!

    75. amelia dofelmier says:

      I just love all of the great ideas on this site. They are all so clever and adorable.

    76. Valerie says:

      I would LOVE some free fabric, who wouldn’t?! Your store has such a great selection, and I really enjoy ordering from you. Those extra touches like putting a button in the packaging, etc., really make it great!

    77. Sam. says:

      Ugh, I only wish I had the talent (and gumption) to sew kid’s clothes!

    78. Keri says:

      Wow – is the month already over?!!!!! Can’t wait to see some of the Halloween costumes. This year The Boy requested a skeleton costume he’d seen in a magazine, so I think my costume sewing days are over. But maybe the dog would like one………..hmmmm……..y’all gonna do something for pets? 🙂

    79. Heather says:

      I have really enjoyed the tutorials and themes. Thanks for all the work you put in! I can’t wait to see the crafty Halloween goodness.

      I could sure use some free Halloween fabric!

    82. Shannon H. says:

      OMG! I so need to make some jammies for my girls. And Halloween costumes…And….

    83. erinmalia says:

      halloween is reason enough to have kids, especially if you sew. maybe the dog will have to do until then.

    84. Kim says:

      I love the kid’s clothes tutorials. They’re great.

    85. samantha says:
