71  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How would I modify a pattern to make it maternity? on: September 23, 2008 05:09:04 PM
I bought some cute cotton fabric and a black strech knit to make a maternity skirt. I am going to use the Sew What: Skirts book to make it but I'm not sure how to make a band to go around my belly! I'm 7 months and pretty big and I'd like it to fit the rest of the pgcy. Any ideas?
72  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / less than $5 and 20 minutes and 5 pairs of baby/toddler legs on: September 23, 2008 08:47:35 AM
I found some great knee highs for women at Target. The purple striped were .98 a pair and the coral and gray were $1.75 for 2 pairs. I looked at a bunch of tute's but I ended up just folding over the bottom and zig zagging it. I like the fuller ankle I think it makes them look more like pants  than leg warmers. I love babylegs but it's so expensive and hard to find ones to fit my 5yo girl. They have some super long socks at Target for the winter I might pick some of those up to make her longer ones if they go on clearance.

Sorry the one with both girls is blurry they wouldn't sit still! I love the fact that they are all the same size yet fit my 5yo, 3 1/2 yo and 16 mo old.

What do you think? do you think it looks weird with the unfitted ankle?



73  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My newest dress for my gals, no pattern necessary. on: September 22, 2008 10:07:03 AM
I really haven't been making dresses that long but I have the basics down. I created this dress for my 16 month old but it's a bit big. I didn't really measure or anything which was probably part of the problem LOL I'm the kind that just starts cutting...

anyway, the photos came out a little blury and not so sharp but I think you can see what the dress looks like and how it came out. I did snaps on the back for the very first time!
Yeah me! I lined the bodice part with the same yellowy orange as the tiger and used a green with blue small dots from Amy Butler as the bodice and accent on the skirt. I like the print a lot and didn't want to take away from it with too many frills. I also bought some bright red buttons to go on the shoulders since I changed my mind at the last minute after cutting and sewing and decided to change how I was going to attach the shoulder parts.
74  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Simplicity pattern 4636 on: November 12, 2007 08:45:25 AM
Ok so this is my first time on Craftster and I couldn't find the right department to post this so I thought pattern review would be good. I made "C" of this pattern the car seat cover since I have an abused car seat and wanted something that would be easy on?off for cleaning and look cute.

I used Amy Butler fabrics so they're a good weight cotton, prewashed/dried and ironed the fabric first and followed the patter to a T untll the end when I pulled my car seat in to try and get this thing on and line up the holes. The pattern doesn't work for an infant seat unless you tweak it which is what I attempted to do here

I added some grosgrain loops on the inside to hook paci's, toys etc The problem was this is NOT made for an infant seat and therefore doesnt' allow for the carry handle. I'm going to attempt this again because it was easy and did come out pretty cute for my front/rear facing toddler seat which dosen't have a handle.

then I made a matching blanket with the scraps

Thanks for peaking! I'm going to try my hand at the "E" shopping cart cover later this week
