I got a project done that fits the June challenge. Yea! And it only took me 30 minutes at the most (with a child crawling all over me).

It is inspired by this post: Long sleeved to Bow sleeve T-shirt. (I used the tutorial but didn't add the neck detail.)





ETA: I also made 2 more pillowcase nightgowns from the Gingercake tutorial.

Here she is. The amazing poppet that puamelia sent me. Sleeping Beauty.

Front


Back, showing off her lovely hair. Wool locks that pua needle felted to her head. The look a super pale blonde with some darker blonde highlights.


Showing off the back of her incredibly detailed, gorgeous dress.


Sitting holding her spindle on her lap. It also shows off the bodice of her dress better.


A close up of her amazing hand painted eyes. Two shades of blue with orange. I really need to learn how to paint eyes like this.


And the extras. Anime Japanese candy (that my husband tried to convince me tasted like shrimp. Yeah they're strawberry.) Japanese gum.  Hello kitty candy. Mints. Unscented soap (I have an allergy to strong scents). Cat eyes for poppet making. Fabric.

Here is my son enjoying his brand new blanket. (This one (Turtle Rag Quilt) was actually on my original list. So yea!)

I finished this blanket the other day, but just got around to taking pictures. While I technically bought the fabric with this project in mind, I bought it over a year ago.

Here is my little boy looking at his new blanket that he just got for his first birthday. (I had meant to have it done before he was born as a lay on the ground blanket. Such a slacker. But better late than never.)

I decided to make a second Pillowcase Nightgown.  You can find more pictures here.

226  Another Pillowcase Nightgown in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: June 12, 2011 08:13:01 PM








I liked the first pillowcase nightgown I made so much, I decided to make a second one. Plus when the pillowcase only costs 99 cents, how can you lose?

The pillow is yellow with purple flowers, so I used Purple double fold bias tape around the neck and for the tie, and added a purple ribbon around the seam of the top joining the skirt.

If you want to try making one of your own, I followed this tutorial from Gingercake.

I made this adorable nightgown from a tutorial over at Gingercake. It was super easy and turns out great. She only has it available in a 4T, but it's just a matter of resizing the pattern pieces. I left it the same because my daughters 4, however, she's small for her age, so it turned out a tiny bit large.



You can't see it in the picture (and honestly you can't really see it unless you're looking really closely in real life) but there are darker pink vertical stripes. Also there are darker pink flowers on the ruffle. (The best part about this is that the ruffle was already a part of the pillow case so I didn't have to do anything.)



In her tutorial she used a button closer, but she suggested also using ties if you preferred. I just happened to have pink bias tape in my stash, so I chose that route for binding the neck and the back and just let it go out to be ties. All I had to buy to make this adorable nightgown was the pillowcase which I got at the thrift store for 99 cents. Best 99 cents I ever spent!
