2  Man's Shirt Turned Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jenlovesshao on: August 20, 2011 01:06:05 AM
I got a few old men's shirt from my boyfriend's brother that they were going to toss out.  The original plan was to make a basic apron like this http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-do-an-apron-using-an-old-shirt/, but I really liked this fabric and I wanted to maximize all the parts of this shirt.  One idea lead to another and with no patterns or instructions to guide me, I somehow came up with this. Hope you enjoy.

original collar
Button is fully functional, making it easier to take on and off. I also embellished it with a baby blue piping just to give it a little more of a "pop".


pocket detail
GAP has this cool little detail where they make the last buttonhole in a contrasting purple.


funky purple satin lining
I wanted a cotton but this was all I had laying around.


full shot
Kept the original shirt hem.  I like how it was kinda scallop looking.  The buttons on the bodice is still operable, so you can store things in there if you wanted.

Thanks Laura for modeling it for me.

Sorry didn't have a chance to iron it. 
I apologize for the poor camera phone photos.  The first photo shows the true colors of the shirt.

Prince with his signature trick "The Sit-up" (but we say it in Chinese).


When possible I usually try to save details from the original shirt.

Thank you for the kind comments.
I used this
Simplicity 2695
Dog Clothes Coats Pet Go Green

It's easy and straight forward.

I also recommend Simplicity 2755.  I used it so many times that I will need to get another one when it goes on sale.

5  Latest Doggie Project in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by jenlovesshao on: December 20, 2010 11:12:58 PM
It use to be a medium sized man's shirt now its a medium sized dog shirt.  A size too big for Prince. I have to find a dog that fits it.  I used a pattern for this.

I liked the pattern of the shirt.

6  Prince's New Coat in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by jenlovesshao on: November 29, 2010 11:00:15 PM
It is getting chilly outside. So I decided to make Prince a new coat.  Made it from a pair of old corduroy pants.

Sorry for the poor picture quality.  



Contrast with a cute little plaid and trim with a brown seam binding.

7  Baby Booties! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by jenlovesshao on: November 29, 2010 10:38:31 PM
I am going to be an auntie soon.  She's arriving in March.  Made these with some small scraps of fabric that I had laying around.  Sorry for the crappy pics, didn't have my camera on me.


 I call them JEN'S.

8  Prince's pjs in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by jenlovesshao on: February 16, 2010 10:26:37 PM
It is Lunar New Year!  That means we get new pjs, well it does in my family.  It has been a yearly tradition that my family has adopted in the last five years or so and is still going strong.  We couldn't leave our Prince out. 

My sleeping Prince. 


The pattern suggested a knit fabric but I didn't have any cute printed knit.  So I made it with a flannel remnant that I had. I added the solid knit to the chest for comfort and "wear-ability".  There are also snaps between the hind legs to secure it in place (just image a baby's bodysuit).

You can see the seam where I had to connect it to make it wide enough.  Also shows the butt panel, purely decorative, not functional.
C&C are welcome.

9  Snow White in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by jenlovesshao on: October 06, 2009 11:14:45 PM
I made my little cousin a Snow White costume for her trip to Disneyland. Made the entire costume and matching red bow headband in less than a day, just in time for her trip.


The buttons going down the middle is suppose to look like little apples.


Let me know what you guys think.

10  Vicious Dog! Stay Back 200 Feet!! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by jenlovesshao on: October 06, 2009 10:52:04 PM
My sister bought this shirt in NY when she went there a couple of years ago.  No one ever wore it, so I thought it would be funny if I turn it to a shirt for my dog. 
This is my Prince.

I tried to center the logo to his chest. 

Shirt Front before I cut it all up.

Shirt Back.
