11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A Little Summer Jumper on: March 21, 2009 07:37:19 AM
I'm still learning, so be gentle.  This went together pretty easily after I figured out what the instructions were trying to tell me.



It's pretty big on her, but she'll grow into it.

Here's a close up of the button.  I love them!  I stink at button holes though.  I should have gotten the next nicer machine with the automatic button holer.



There are supposed to be decorative ties on the bottoms of the legs, which are supposed to be capri length.  But since it's so big I left them off so she wouldn't be stepping on them.
12  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Birthday Shirts! on: March 20, 2009 08:06:54 AM
So I decided that my daughter needed a shirt that proclaimed that she was the big One Year Old to wear when we went to the Aquarium with my in-laws on her birthday.  I looked through my scraps and found sparkly, fuzzy green, zebra faux fur, and lots of ball fringe.  Here's what I came up with



I now remember why I said I'd never work with fun fur ever again after I finished the protect I originally bought it for.  It looks like I murdered a Muppet. 

I'm still working on my skills with the applique.  I have trouble with curves.  If anyone has tips I'd love to hear them.

Also I tried to get some action shots but she was NOT in the mood.  Hopefully my mother in law will send me some good ones from her birthday.

Katie was wearing her 1 shirt to lunch with friends the other day and a girlfriend commented that she wished she could make something like it for her daughter's 4th b-day coming up this weekend.  So back to the scraps I went.  I also discovered that Walmart has Granimals clothing which has lots of basic, solid color shirts for cheap.

So here is soon to be 4 year old Kylee's Birthday shirt.

The colors are really washed out in this pic, sorry bad lighting.  I'm getting better with the curves, but still need work.

I had so much fun making these.  I'm thinking I'm going to make it a tradition with my daughter.
13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Appliqued and Embroidered Kitchen Towels on: December 23, 2008 07:34:19 PM
I made these for several people on my list. (Friends, mom Mother in Law)  The towels are flour sack towels that I got at Target  6 for $5.99.  The trees are a lovely green corduroy left over from making our stockings a few years ago.  I appliqued them the hand embroidered the person's last name.  I'm just starting to embroider, so it's not perfect, but I'm pleased with the over all effect.



This is a onesie I did for a friend's baby who is a few weeks older than my daughter.  I also did one for another friedn's kid, but I gave it away before I remembered to take a pic.  That one had a pink ice cream scoop on a brown cone appliqued then I hand embroidered the word "sweet" under it.



and the back



14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Adding long sleeves to onesies on: December 19, 2008 09:27:59 PM
I know I saw somewhere here where someone had added long sleves to a onesie they had embellished.

I want to do that and wondered exactly how I would go about it.  I'm using cotton to match an applique I did on the onesie.  Should I sew it to the end of the short sleeve at the sleeve's hem or to the seam allowance of the shoulder?

How did you determine how wide and long the sleeve should be?

Thanks.
