1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Kitty Dress for my little tiger on: June 01, 2009 10:07:08 PM
It is not too heavy, just like a regular broadcloth weight. She loved it at first, but since she is two, and so full of opinions, she doesn't want to wear it now... she only wears shorts and tee shirts now... maybe that's what I get for letting her pick her own clothes... power struggles= not worth my time.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Kitty Dress for my little tiger on: May 08, 2009 08:58:09 AM
I have been planning on making some new summer dresses for my little one and since she is almost two (and very opinionated), I thought that she would like to pick out her own fabric. I showed her an abundance of florals and such, but the kitty fabric caught her eye and it was over from there.

I used vegbee's peasant shirt tute and modified it for the dress: http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/07/peasant-blouse.html

Here is a close-up of the fabric:

I found it at goodwill and needed to have it (lol)

Here is the ever important action shot:

*she is a ham*

Thanks for looking!

i absolutely love this!!!  it looks amazing!  i really want to try mosaic - but i'm completely terrified because i know absolutely nothing about it!  have you ever taken classes, or did you teach yourself?  any tips for a beginner?  thanks, and great job!!! 

I would say dive in head first. I had never done any mosaic before. It is not too hard. Once you start, you will get the hang of it pretty fast.

I love it! The fabric, the baby, it is all so cute! What pattern did you use?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Patchy twirly skirt for a tiny Irish lass on: March 13, 2009 01:29:47 PM
  I married into an Irish family that celebrates each year with traditional staples such as corned beef and (lots of) beer. Since I am always looking for an opportunity to make outfits that correspond with whatever event is going on, I have made my daughter a little patchwork skirt to wear to the festivities:


I sewed little bloomers into it so it is a complete package:

yes, the inside looks lovely *snark*

She likes it a lot:


And she knew just what to do... spin:


Now, I just need to make something for my son, my hubby, and myself... by tomorrow... or not... procrastination... it is so stifling sometimes...
Anyway, thanks for looking  Grin
 
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Rhino dress on: March 13, 2009 09:04:45 AM
So, I found, at the thrift store, about 50 vintage iron transfers for embroidery and could not pass them up. I have very little history or skill with embroidery, but I was really excited about the patterns and such, so I decided to give one a try.
  I made this dress for my tiny beast with the rhino pattern (tigers are her favorite, but alas, there was no tiger).


The top is muslin, since it was the only solid colored fabric that I own (I am a magpie, I collect colors and patterns) and the bottom is from an old sheet.

Close-up of rhino:

I tried to color her in with crayons after I embroidered her, so she looks like she has wrinkly skin (a happy accident).

Action shot:

she was really too busy to stop for pictures

Thanks for looking!

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cursive stencil help on: February 05, 2009 12:13:31 PM
Are you doing freezer paper stencil? I would say that is the best option for this stencil.
  You can print on Freezer paper (my printer can do it) so I would say that you should cut the freezer paper to standard printer paper size, print the image, and then cut it out with an xacto knife.
  You need to make sure that as you are cutting, you retain the tiny pieces that will be needed (like all the insides of the loops and letters) and make sure that they are available when you are ready to stencil. Just iron on the freezer paper and then paint... voila!
   Freezer paper is the most amazing craft supply that I have discovered... I feel like I have missed out on opportunities in my life since I discovered it...
  I hope this is useful, if you have any questions, feel free to ask...
No question is a dumb question!
thanks so much i like that idea.. where can i get freezer paper ?

You can get freezer paper at the grocery store (probably at target or walmart too). It would be with the aluminum foil and plastic bags.
You just have to draw (or print) your design on the paper side, cut it out, then iron the waxy side to your fabric... then paint it on and peel off! It's like magic!

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Baby Sweater Help! I'm pulling my hair out. on: February 03, 2009 11:48:11 PM
Although I have not done this pattern, and strictly speaking from reading the pattern and your response to it...
 I would have to say that after you have done the ch 3 at the end of the last round, you would disregard the first ch3 and you would DC in the 1st ch space and then continue as the pattern says.
  I hope this is helpful to you  Smiley
 All those DC's a ch's and sc's  don't make too much sense when you are tired though... it is like reading another language... I understand.. after having two children...

I love green plaid one! I would definitely say that you should throw caution to the wind and make yourself a matching dress. I think that the best part of having a little girl (and making her clothes) is that you can match! It may be cheesy to some people, but I think it's awesome  Wink
  By the way, what pattern did you use? they are adorable!
