Thanks Craftsters!
Super cute!!  Please do a tutorial for this!!
I am planning to make more as it was sooo easy and will try to get a tut put together.
 For me that would be equal to a junkies dealer giving him freebies for a month!  lol Cheesy
I feel the same way! I have been after these scraps for years!!

Did you dye the courduroy yourself or did it come that way? I've never seen tye dyed courduroy before.
I was wondering the same thing myself. These pants are very cute and I would gladly put my toddler in a pair!

My mom has been hoarding several boxes of scraps for over thirty years. She always said she was going to make a quilt with them but that never seemed to happen. Well last year my parents moved into a smaller house and mom finally gave up the scrap stash. Now I have an awesome stash of vintage scraps and I finally got around to using some.
This shirt started out to be a cocktail apron. I sewed the strips together six months ago. Then we moved and it was lost in my craft stash. I found it again last week and decided to make a shirt for Anabel. I used some dollar fabric from Wal-Mart to line it, left over quilt binding for the straps and some funky green buttons from my stash.







I can't wait to show my mom!

24  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Trippy pink dress on: June 19, 2008 11:25:44 AM
I went into my closet a few days ago looking for a skirt to wear. (Summer is in full effect here and I can't bring myself to wear shorts.) I came across this AWESOME pink skirt I used to wear all the time. Of course I immediately put it on and broke the zipper. What can I say I've gained a few extra pounds Tongue

I just couldn't part with it so I did what any craftster would do. I got out my seam ripper, accidentally stabbed myself in the hand and made the skirt into a dress for Anabel. It's a combination of New Look 6501 and New Look 6688. I used 6501 for the top and 6688 for the skirt. I had to tweak the pattern alittle so It would fit the amount of fabric I had. I made the skirt a little smaller and the ties at the waist in the back shorter. All in all I think it turned out pretty good.

26  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Last Summer Favorite Resurected on: April 16, 2008 11:28:30 AM
I reconed a dress that was last years favorite but due to the lack of zipper/buttons no longer fit my daughter in the torso. I sliced it down the back and used the original ties to construct loops the thread ribbon through corset style. It took about twenty minutes and Bellee was so excited she hardly stopped jumping on the couch for me to take pictures.  Cheesy  I'm hoping it maybe a top when it does eventually get too short.





Sorry for the bad pictures but she is pretty bouncy right now. I'll have to try again later, and here a picture of the original state of the dress.

I decided to take a break from my new resin obsession and revisit my bead stash.
I made what my sister calls "Cha-Cha Bracelets" and a few new earrings.
Check it out

Thanks everyone!

great style!  With leaving off the zipper, any problems getting it on and off?

too much caffeine + frustrating zipper = psychotic break

No problem so far, I made it a size up. In about five pounds we'll have a problem  Cheesy
I was thinking I would remove the sash then cut it down the back and put in a corset style tie or something along those lines.

I recently found this rad skull and crossbones fabric at JoAnn's and had to get it. I used New Look 6688 view E. I tweaked it a little and left the zipper off. It was quick and easy (my favorite kind of project) plus Bellee LOVES it! Yeah!





Now she wants me to put bows on it, she's such a girly girl  Cheesy
