1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / I'm donating to Healthy Baby Program on: January 11, 2008 07:34:46 PM
My area runs Healthy Baby programs, which are focused at expectant and new mothers/families. 

These programs are run on a drop-in basis, and they try to have a door prize every week.  Good prizes do seem to get more participants through the door, especially in the lower income areas where the families have the most to benefit from attending these programs.   

I won the prize one week, and it was a beautiful hand knit baby blanket that a group of elderly women had made and donated.  (I felt guilty taking it, but sent them a thank-you note.)

Last week, the class I attended, they had no donations, so they put one of their own "meal bags" (can of soup, handful of noodles, and spices) up for the prize. 

This has inspired me to make some items to donate.  I know the families that attend my class could definately use some love-filled prizes.  I'm not a knitter, but may sew some baby outfits, shoes, pillows, plushies, etc. to donate.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Modify Soft Sole Shoe Pattern into Boots? on: January 11, 2008 07:16:30 PM
Seems many are now making their own soft sole baby shoes.

I have made my own for my son....

http://www.babiesonline.com/imagegallery/gallery_image.asp?p=http://images.babiesonline.com%2Fbabies%2Fm%2Fmeant2b%2FGp9afupkrbxcoeof%2Ejpg&be=m/meant2b

My question is, has anyone tried to make tall boots out of these patterns?

A friend of mine has young girls, and hates putting snowsuits on them to go shopping, because they get too hot.  Her problem is, if she doesn't put their snow pants on, their pants ride up, exposing their bare legs. 

I would like to try to modify the basic pattern so that it is still soft and flexible, but so that the tongue and back extends up the child's leg, to be worn under their pants.

Has anyone tried this?  Any success or tips?

I hope to find time soon to experiment.
