1  Reconned Star Wars onesie in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by PunkyPenguin on: December 14, 2008 05:17:54 PM
My hubby is a HUGE Star Wars geek, in fact, he runs around in Sandtrooper armor on weekends.  So we have a lot of Star Wars events that we go to.  Seeing that there is a severe lack of SW themed onesies out there I decided to make a few out of some kid's onesies I picked up.  This is the fist one that I've finished so far.  I used a pattern I had already and just cut the pieces from the tee.

2  Wee baby boy pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by PunkyPenguin on: December 07, 2008 07:01:16 PM
I remembered seeing these pants http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278862.0 a while back and while trying to decide how to recon a men's shirt I decided to see if I could make something similar.

These are my version.  I put the pants out of the sleeves.  Removed the cuffs and attached them to the bottom of the pants.



I finally got some action shots of my son wearing these, so I thought I'd add them.  I made the onesie as well out of a kid's t-shirt.

3  Flaming Turkey in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by PunkyPenguin on: November 27, 2008 07:27:42 PM
I made this little onesie for my son's first Thanksgiving.  I'm still getting the hang of applique but have a ton of fun playing with it.   Cool

4  Kitty Wonder Woman dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by PunkyPenguin on: July 02, 2008 06:54:17 PM
A friend of mine's little girl LOVES Wonder Woman, so I made her a special dress for birthday.  I was originally looking for a fabric that looked like WW's bottoms/skirt however I couldn't find any.  But I actually like the look of this star fabric better since the dress doesn't come across as being too costumey.

I bought the shirt and designed the stencil.  I then attached the skirt to the bottom of the shirt to make a dress.

5  Blue flamin' baby romper in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by PunkyPenguin on: July 02, 2008 06:49:38 PM
I found a republished vintage pattern by Simplicity and just had to try it out with some blue flame fabric from my stash.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out and want to make some more.  The only thing I changed was the original pattern called for buttons and I really hate doing button holes so I switched it to snaps.  Besides, I think that snaps are safer from little ones who might want to taste the shiney buttons.
