191  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Superhero Sleep Sack (with images) on: August 31, 2007 01:42:35 PM
What a cute idea!

On my DD's sleep sacks, I always thought it was really cool that they inserted the zippers upside down. So they zip from the neck to the feet instead of vice versa.

This keeps little hands from pulling down the zipper.

Just thought that was a cool idea some baby-sack person had! Grin
192  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Mickey Mouse Costume? on: August 31, 2007 01:01:43 PM
Has anyone seen a cute Mickey Mouse costume pattern or tutorial anywhere?

Or if not, does anyone know how to make a plain bonnet for a toddler/baby without a brim to shade the eyes?
(I would attach ears to this, and make the costume freehand...)

If you guys couldn't tell, Halloween is fast approaching and my very close friend has comissioned me to create her son's Mickey costume.

Hey there,
You can find prongs like the ones you requested @ craft stores such as Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.
To keep cheaper varieties from corroding, paint them with 2 coats of clear nail polish and let dry before you attach to clothing.
Or else buy sterling silver or stainless steel versions, which should not corrode.
Another option I can think of is, using some sort of wire. But then it would have to be wrapped around the stone itself, and while looking cool and funky, might not be the look you are trying to achieve.
194  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: two questions on the subject of shirts... on: August 31, 2007 12:25:38 PM
For the t-shirt you want to stencil, i'd suggest if you're a newbie sewer, to go to wal mart or a thrift store, buy a plain tee for $4 and stencil on that.
My thoughts are, if you are just learning to sew, you may want to build your confidence sewing some smaller, easier things. But it's all up to you. I think sewing a whole tshirt might be a big overwhelming if you're not used to the sewing machine, and so on.
And in terms of the plain white tee u want to recon, why don't you cut off the collar and stencil on that? Or else, turn the shirt part into a halter, and the sleeves into headbands?
Just some suggestions, hope that helps!  Wink

Adorable (both the little boy, and the outfit!)
197  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please,how do you do that? on: August 30, 2007 12:07:50 PM
I did something similar a few years back, but the jeans were a size 9-12 mos, so I couldnt get my machine to fit in the teeny leg holes.

What I did was, I made a paper pattern of the shapes I wanted to decopage on the jeans. I pinned the paper on the jeans to get the general effect.

I then cut out the fabric pieces and used webbing to adhere them to the jeans in the same fashion as I did above with the paper version.

Then finally, I hand-stitched around each piece.

This wasn't a bad deal because the size was small, but idk how this would work for a toddler or child's garment. Might b time consuming? Huh

I've actually used IKEA bedsheets (new) on clearance for about $2 a piece to make skirts for me, and cute lil' outfits for DD when she was a yiddle biddle thing. I almost forgot about that til' I read your post!
199  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Help me find cute european fabric! on: August 30, 2007 11:56:16 AM
It seems that everywhere I look, I see cute DIY outfits made with Oilily-type fabric. My 5 yr old would totally ROCK these out!

So why can't I find any of these fabrics online OR in stores??

I would be welcome to any suggestions, websites, key words to search under, or stores in the Chicago IL area, for which I could get my hands on some lovely european-looking fabrics.

Thanks for helping a newbie to the forum!  Smiley
