1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Can ya stand another one??? Halloween paneled skirt on: August 12, 2008 11:19:40 AM
I thought Id share one more.  This one was going to be a tote bag.  It was cut and pinned, put away and forgotten.  When I found it, I decided it would be cuter as a skirt.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cleaning out my closet....fabric closet that is....... on: August 12, 2008 07:53:58 AM
I have a fabric addiction.  LOL.  I really needed to weed out a few things, cause I had a little of this and a little of that, but not enough to make anything really big.  I see all those cute little twirl skirts on Etsy and here and thought Id make a couple for my neices.  Problem is, my neices are in South Carolina and the size I THOUGHT they wore ( that's the one my brother told me, should have asked my SIL) is too small.  These were made from scraps.  Let me know what you think.



3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Summer halter top from destash on: July 17, 2008 10:01:53 AM
This is a halter top I made for my daughter ( the hot pink top).  It was from some fabric I bought on clearance 2 years ago.  It was going to be a skirt, but I didnt make it twirl-y enough and I was working with no pattern, so it became a cute halter.

The 2nd place ribbon was for her First Aid project, my other daughters ribbon was for her Creative Arts project.  She made a braided rug out of recycled plastic grocery bags.  Ill be posting a picture of it soon!  Thanks for looking.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My 9 yo's 4-H project on: July 17, 2008 09:56:59 AM
My daughter just completed her first year of 4-H sewing.  This is her project.  She had to make an elastic waisted skirt and wanted to stand out and be different, so she opted to make a poodle skirt.  She didnt place ( there were 19 girls taking the same project) but we think she did fabulous!!!  She scored all excellents and 1 good ( because it didnt reflect a "current" style, lol)  The hair scrunchie on her wrist was also part of the project, she also made the scarf out of the same fabric.  The blouse was purchased and I added vents on the side for more roominess.

thanks for looking.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Adding butterfly sleeves to tank tops on: July 12, 2008 11:06:56 AM
Our school starts in Mid-August when its blistering hot, but our dress code is very strict.  Shoulders may not be shown and tank tops must be 3 fingers wide.  I thought Id make up some tank tops with buttlefly sleeves like Ive seen posted here.  However, Im not sure how to go about it.  Ive just returned to sewing after 20 years, so Im really re-learning ( 7th grade home-ec really didnt teach me much).  Can anyone direct me to some great tutorials or help me out with simple instructions.

Much thanks in advance!!!
