241  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!

Made completely from stash using the Funky Friends Factory Honey the Teddy Bear pattern. (Which I already had.)

246  Teddy Bear in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: May 31, 2011 09:45:54 PM


I used the Funky Friends Factory Honey the Teddy Bear to make this little guy. He's going to be a present for my son who is turning 1. Because of this I opted not to give him the safety eyes, or button eyes, the pattern called for. I also didn't give him a nose, because I didn't give him eyes. I kind of like the look though.

Here is my most recent destashing project. The only things I bought for her, was the purple fabric for her top, the glitter glue for her makeup, and the octopus pendant.

Her thread is here.

Wow, look at her hair! I'll have to stalk the gallery to see her in her finished form.

In other news, here's the poppet I made puamelia in the mini poppet swap.


You can see more pictures and more information here.

250  Teal and Purple Mermaid Poppet. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: May 27, 2011 10:40:45 AM
I made this mermaid for puamelia in the Mini Poppet swap.


AlwaysInspired gave me some great information on how to go about making a mermaid. For the shape of her tail I actually took the leg pattern that inez used and then shared for her contortionist poppet Gloria. I just widened it at parts and added a fin instead of a foot at the bottom.

Her hair is Yarn Bee's Infatuation in the Ocean colorway and is amazingly soft. You could sit and stroke it all day. It does shed a little though.


When I had finished her body I thought she needed a little something, so I added seed beads to the bottom of her tail.


Her top is just a rectangle that I scrunched in the middle and then sewed over to keep it gathered in. In the back it is done up corset style.


And how could she not have a necklace?  Also you can see a closer shot of her top from the front.


She was pretty much done when I thought she was looking a little plain in the belly area so I added a belt. (It's non-removable.)


I love how she turned out and was so sad to see her go, as was my four year old daughter. She has consoled herself, however, by telling me I can just make her a pink one instead!
