Hey y’all! I’m so excited to share this news with you! Starting April 7 I will be hosting another installment of the Calling All Kids series!
Calling All Kids is a series that explores children’s clothing as it relates to gender. When I’m shopping for clothes for my kids and I see the same old pink fare for girls and the same old super hero fare for boys, it makes me crazy! This is one of the main reasons I sew for my kids. Now, there is nothing wrong with the clothes that are out there necessarily, but our kids deserve more variety! When we are in the girl section at Target my sweet Ellie always says “where are the cool clothes?” She’s a tomboy. Although I hate that word. Can we come up with a better word?
So for all the kids out there that have to go to the other section to find clothes they like, I created this series. I’m giving them a voice, and I have an army of 21 amazing sewing bloggers to help me. Each one will create a piece of clothing that is either unisex or that does not go along with traditional gendered clothing. Just LOOK at this line up:
Are you still with me? Good, because now I’m going to tell you where YOU come in. I want to see what you can create! Make something for your little one that fits in with the spirit of this series and join our linky party! Each week there will be a winner drawn from the entries, and the winner will receive some amazing prizes! If you want some inspiration HERE is my Calling All Kids Pinterest Board, and you can find last year’s posts HERE.
Eeek! Are you excited? I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
