Kids Clothes Week: animals all over

Despite a busy week, I'm trying to participate in Kids Clothes Week. This daily hour of sewing is not only a fun challenge, but also a way to relax and unwind.
At least, if everything goes smoothly and as planned. Fortunately, this was largely the case for this little tee.
A while ago I scored this animal fabric at the local fabric market. It's a really nice, thick and high quality knit, and perfect for the theme of KCW (I couldn't find the brand, but found out that it's sold at in various colorways)
I combined it with some coral/salmon pink for the collar and sleeve cuffs.
As mentioned before, I'm on a mission to introduce more pink in my sons' wardrobes, and I love it. Never having been a big fan of pink, I'm now discovering that there are so many different shades of pink, that can be used in all kinds of color combinations. It has opened a whole new range of opportunities.
Next up, some cool pants for my girl. Let's see how far we can get this week...


  1. That is a really cute shirt and the model is just adorable! Thanks for sharing :0)

  2. Cool shirt, my son loves pink, I should also try to introduce some to his wardrobe.

  3. Super mooie kleurencombinatie! Ook de print is heel leuk!

  4. This is such a cute t-shirt! I love the coral/pink trim as well. I love pink and now that I'm sewing for my wee boy too I'm using up lots of pink scraps in t-shirts for him. What t-shirt pattern did you use?

    1. Hi Kathryn, thanks for your comment. Yeah, you don't need much pink to spice up a shirt, right. I used an Ottobre pattern here. Not sure which one. I traced it a long time ago
