Taking Part in Kids Clothes Week

I've signed up to the Kids Clothes Week Challenge over on the Elsie Marley Blog, there are over 200 of us signed up. The Challenge is to spend 1 hour a night, for a week, making clothes for our kids. A great incentive to get on and do some sewing for the family I thought....or at least finish some of the many projects I've started!
So to be prepared I've been looking up some patterns for INTERESTING boy clothes and found Ottobre Magazine, a Finnish Magazine with over 40 patterns each month, specialising in baby and childrens fashion and there look to be some great patterns. After a very long time looking (it was hard to choose) I finally ordered some back issues and really look forward to them arriving in the mail.
I'll post up what I manage to make / finish / start but be sure to check out the Flickr Group to see what therest of the challenge participants manage to create.

Looks interesting, though my boy is nearly eight, so I don't think he would be tto interested in wearing anything made by his mam. Jumpers made by Nanny are OK though!
