1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Puppy Hoodie on: March 12, 2008 07:20:31 AM
I have been itching to make a hoodie with dog-ears for my son and finally... I HAVE!!!  Never done something like this before... But it was surprisingly non-frustrating than usual.. Sewing was fun!!!  Since my serger isnt working I ended up having to line the whole thing... which I hardly ever do.. but I will more often now


Anywyas here's a shot of the hanger wearing it  Wink



Here is the lil puppy that I have had for a year now...



And here is a better shot of the hoodie...  It is a size 2 so he has loads of room to grow into it till it fits right  Grin



2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cute itsy bitsy library bag *action shot* on: March 10, 2008 07:33:13 AM
Hey all... wanted to post up my lil project I have been working on today.  It is a library bag for my one year old son...  It is approximately 2/3 of a letter sized page.  Made it out of scraps that my sis left over 13 yrs ago...  

Messed up on the length of the straps but I think it came out quite well anyways... I put a snap onto the lengthened piece of strap, which if the strap ever gets too small to slip on and off you can always just snap the lil one in!! lol  Grin

Put on a few embroidered appliques and voila!!  SImple and plain became kid freindly  Shocked







*update* This is him trying it on this morning



3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Refurbishing Diaper Changer Pad on: January 14, 2008 09:00:43 AM
Does anyone know how to make a diaper padding cover?  My padding is dry rotting and I can now see the foam but I have no idea where to start.  I want to save it and make some type of impermeable cover to go over it as well as a normal pad cover...  DOes anyone have suggestions?

Update: Ok so my covering was not dry-rotting, its the actual fabric (vinyl with polyester backing) that tears easily.  Joanne's had a sale this week of an additional 50% off red tag items and I bought a yard in two colors (in case of tearing) for $1.50 each!  And terry cloth fabric in three colors for $2.50 a yard..

I figured out the pattern for making a new one to cover the foam and to my surprise there was cardboard at the bottom... these things are seriously overpriced the materials used to make them are really cheap!   Shocked

So far I have made one with a zipper to take off if needed to replace... and now to try and make the temp covers to try and prolong the inevitable tearing of  vinyl.  Undecided
