One Hour Sewing – Fall Kids Clothes Week

I squeezed in one hour yesterday afternoon to sew something for my kiddos and participate in the fall edition of  kids clothes week.  I had high hopes of challenging myself this time around (I didn’t), but like every time I turn on my machine, I’m inspired to create more.  I will hopefully soon cut into some patterns and fabric that are sitting around.  Even when my machine collects dust, the ideas are always there.

Although, I’ll call this my lazy mama creation, it does remind me that something can be created in just one hour.  Lucia’s dress was made the same way that I made these dresses last spring (I’ve since fixed the hem!).   Adrian’s shirt was made by cutting out a triangle,  using seam-a-seam, and sewing a wide zig zag stitch along the border.  Good ol’ Mod Podge was used to create the headband and mask.  The awesome fabric is from Spoonflower.simple sewing matching childrens clothes black triangle fabric

Check out some amazing talent at and #kidsclothesweek on instagram – you won’t see any lazy mama creations over there!



  1. You are so creative Monica. I think its cool that even though you have a boy and a girl, you can make something to kinda dress them alike. I like to match my boys sometimes. I know at some point they will not think its cute anymore! Ha ha! 🙂 I love her dress!

  2. Love that dress! And the ears too. Where is the long sleeve shirt from??? I did buy some fabric to do something similar but I can’t use the tanks and T’s I originally planned since its freezing out now.

  3. You did that in one hour?!! And you say you are amazed at my recipes…I need some sewing lessons from YOU!!!

  4. I love the colours. Black and white paired is gorgeous. I can’t get enough of Adrian’s poses for the camera. The little guy is a future model. 🙂

  5. You are so amazing, it would take me days to do that and even then some..
    i want to learn to sew so badly, this is beautiful

  6. Super! I just ordered a bunch so now my excuses are gone : )

  7. Your one hour ‘lazy mama’ creation would take me a week to make, lolol

    I wish I had this talent! I agree… If you have the time look into a shop. Your stuff is better than all the stuff I see on insagram.

  11. These clothes are so unique! I wish that I had a hobby like that. Sewing has always been a dream of mine.
