Win: Wild Things – Funky Little Clothes to Sew

Wild Things Funky Little Clothes to Sew

Wild Things – Funky Little Clothes to Sew is the first book by Kirsty Hartley the talented designer and business owner behind Wild Things which can only be described as one of the most innovative and fun kids clothing company around. Kirsty started Wild Things back in 2011 with the ethos “to put imagination back into beautiful every day children’s clothes”. Kirstys book takes her ethos a step further by providing the patterns and instructions to make your very own versions of her outfits for the little people in your life.

The book is split into 3 main sections:

Dresses: With over 70 pages of dressmaking including A line dresses, pinafores, sundresses, rompers, aprons and long sleeve dresses there is plenty of options for beginners as well as more experienced dressmakers. I loved the Flower Collar Dress and Bumblebee Romper, yes its a romper that looks like a bee, oh the cuteness!A Line Wild things Print Dress 1

Bottoms: With cute elasticated skirts, bloomers and baby knickers this section works well providing matching bottoms for the dresses and pinafores in the dresses section.group_234788

Character Outfits: For me the Character Outfits section is the most unique and fun section, fancy making a fox, owl or baby mouse dress? Or how about some bear, puppy or wolf dungarees. A red riding hood cape or a bear or lion coat? The designs are incredible and you can only imagine the excitement a child would having wearing one of these gorgeous outfits, they scream fun playtime and would be sure to fire the dungarees

A couple of things I love about Kirsty’s book:

  • All the basic techniques you will need are explained up front with step by step photo instructions, applique, bias binding and inserting a zip are all covered
  • Projects are graded from easy to more challenging so you can easily identify a project to meet your skills.
  • The full size patterns come in a pocket and you can take them out and spread them out, you will need to trace them but I love that this book includes proper sized patterns! You can also download them if you want to print them out and a link is provided in the book
  • The designs are FUN, FUN, FUN, this is a book that screams sunshine, stories and playtime! If you have a child aged 6 months to 7 years there is something for you and them!

    I’ve been following Kirsty’s IG feed for a couple of months now and her creations are just so fun and colourful and this book looks like its jam packed with amazing creations!! I would love to win this book as I have a pigeon pair at home that I love to sew for, thanks so much for the chance to win. 🙂

    I’ve got young nieces who are moving into their forever home with their nan after being in care because their parents couldn’t care for them. She’s going to do a fantastic job raising them, but we’re starting from scratch in providing them with everything they need. Making their own clothes with their Nan would be a great fun way for them to bond and settle into their new forever home.

    I made some little dungers for my son, would love to get stuck into the next project!

    I would love to be one of those mothers who makes things for her children rather than just wishing I could.
