1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Inmate top and pajamas for my 1 year old nephew (couldn't help myself) on: April 11, 2011 03:00:15 PM
Good thing he can't talk yet! I'm not sure what he'd have to say about that...





I used these patterns from Ottobre Design magazine (winter 6, 2009).

As usual they were quality patterns and the models were easy to sew.

I recently made these pants for my 5 year old using Burda 9559.
I had to change it a little bit because the crotch was very confusing and the pockets were way too big. Once I was done they fit her pretty good.

They're not perfect (especially not on the inside) but she likes them.

Back:


Pockets:


Adjustable waist with very sloppy finish:


Maybe now I'll be brave enough to try making some pants for myself.  Cheesy

No, but she got a home-sewn halloween costume while her big sister got a store-bought one.
I don't think I'll get away with this next year.  Grin

Thanks for sharing that! I'm not crazy about my software so I'll be sure to look into it.

You put your sketch on a layer as reference and you use the pen tool to trace it on another layer.
There's a detailed tutorial on the pen tool here:

Search for Photoshop Pen Tool tutorials and you'll find many more.

You can also do it with other illustration software like Illustrator, CorelDraw or Manga Studio.

No, I'll offer them for free on my tutorials blog soon.
I'd rather not sell them because the files aren't really professional level.
DraWings doesn't let me tweak the digitizing by hand. I'm only using it because I'm familiar with Corel Draw.

I used an old CorelDraWings version.

This is a project I started months ago when an old friend had her new baby girl.
It stayed buried under a pile of stuff for a while but I finally decided to finish it.

I wanted to make a small 8 pages book with cute animals in it.
I started with some sketches (the pic only shows the designs I decided to keep but there was more):




Then I cleaned them up in photoshop and digitized them for machine embroidery:




And here's the book, with her baby's name on it:











I'll be sending it soon, I hope the baby likes it!

What a wonderful idea, and very well executed too! She must have been so happy.
