Crafting Hint of the Day - Sewing Children's Clothes to Help Them Know the Back from the Front : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread

When sewing small chidren's clothing, use a wide satin stitch at the top of the back seams. They know that this is the back & can dress properly. On the T-shirts, the ribbing seam is always center back. They know to "feel" for the bump in the fabric.

I found a package of buttons that have kitty faces on them. I sewed them to the frount of all my little girls pants so she could tell the frount. I sewed one to the frount of the tops where it would fit in. She loved this-of course, she LOVES cats.

What a great idea, Kelly!

Another idea is to fold a small piece of ribbon in half (length-wise) and sew the cut ends in the waist band. You'll end up with a little loop of ribbon to mark the back.
