1  Romper refashioned from old pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by teemaru on: August 23, 2014 12:18:16 AM
I'm on a bit of a recycling bent at the moment.  I made this romper for my toddler daughter from a discounted pair of pants using an old vintage pattern that needed a bit of adjustment. 



There are more pics (including the original pants that I used, horrible things!) here  http://maker-land.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/pants-upcycle.html

2  Men's shirt into girl's blouse in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by teemaru on: August 16, 2014 02:54:10 AM
I made this blouse from a pattern in a Japanese sewing book, and used a man's shirt that I bought from a second hand store.  I *love* how girly it is - I'm sure I will be making one or two more  Smiley



More photos and a look at the original men's shirt here http://maker-land.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/mens-shirt-refashion.html

3  Deer girl in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by teemaru on: August 09, 2014 01:56:49 AM
This little girl was a joy to make.  She is inspired by my love of old theatre, costuming and forest animals.  She makes me so happy! <3

4  Foo Fighters t-shirt re-size in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by teemaru on: June 25, 2014 01:44:14 AM
Purchased at the local Salvation Army shop for a couple of dollars, I was going to refit this for my nine year old, but he is sadly getting too big.  So my three year old daughter scored it instead. I made up some tartan bloomers to go with it.

5  Child's hat from upcycled sweater in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by teemaru on: May 29, 2014 11:52:33 PM
I'm drafting up a pattern for a new child's hat and tried it out on a sweater I found at a local thrift store.  The straps are made from the remnants of an old t-shirt.





I'm going to have another go, it's a bit slouchy up top for my liking  Smiley

6  Playtime butterfly wings (with link to tutorial) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by teemaru on: May 25, 2014 02:52:12 AM
I'm trying to reduce my scrap pile right down, and have been making these butterfly wings for my daughter, everyone else's daughter(s) and keeping some aside for future girly birthday presents.



They are so easy and quick to make, a great way of using up stash fabrics and are worn on the back rucksack style with elastic loops.  There's a tutorial here if you want to try making some of your own (trust me - so easy! Wink )

7  Twin bunnies in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by teemaru on: April 17, 2014 03:05:28 AM
I made my friend a bunny doll recently as a birthday gift, and her twin grand daughters went a bit mad for it, so to stop the arguments (and to save the original being ripped to shreds!), my friend asked me to make them one each.  As it's been really busy at work I was worried they wouldn't be ready in time for Easter, but happily I made deadline!  (More pics at my blog, if you're interested)

8  Bunny bag (with link to tutorial) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by teemaru on: March 23, 2014 04:58:54 AM
I made my daughter this bunny purse as an Easter gift in lieu of (some of!) the chocolate she'd get from us.  As little chocolate as possible is a good idea, actually  Wink



I'm going to try and adapt it to make a bear purse next time (I have heaps of mocha-coloured curly fur I bought from a garage sale), and maybe make it a bit bigger.  I've put up a tutorial on my blog if you're interested in having a go at making your own.  Here' the link
