1  Squid-Girl! Costume in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by widowwadman on: August 24, 2011 06:24:18 AM


It's zoo day in the nursery today, (and sealife is a zoo, too, right?), so I cobbled this squid costume together. There's no pattern, I've made it up on the go: I made a tutu by knotting strips of varying lengths of dress netting on an elastic. Then I cut a top out of purple felt, using one of my daughter's t-shirts, adding 10 tentacles, 2 of them longer with paddles on the end. The hat is a simple cone shape with a frill, and a hole for the face cut in.

It's all hand stitched because I was too lazy to dig out the sewing machine and took me less than a couple hours.

The daughter lurvvves it.

2  Baby Outfit. First Time- be gentle please in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by widowwadman on: September 05, 2009 11:22:34 AM




After many hours and many curses, I finally managed to finish this little dress with matching bloomers. It looks better on the photos than in real life, as the photos don't quite convey how much more practice I need to get my seams straight. Also, the skull already started coming off in the first wash, I guess I need to sew it on and not just rely on the iron.

I used a simplicity pattern, but completely forgot which one.

C&C welcome.
