Clothkits launch, originally uploaded by joellybaby

Clothkits are patterns printed directly on fabric so that you can cut along the dotted line and sew your own babywear. They're sold as an end in themselves, but crafty parents could use them as a launching point for more projects. The cloth you can purchase is very cute, so they're worth buying once. On the other hand, once you buy a kit, you have a pattern... so why not make extra dresses in your own style?

If you have the time and inclination, you could screenprint your own designs over Clothkits patterns. Or, spray on a "tattoo" using stencils and bleach. Doing it twice is also an opportunity to change the dimensions for a custom fit. Your kid can rock it in bespoke clothing!
