Awesome stuff, all! May is a little crazy for me, so I'm not sure how many projects I'll fit in before the end of the semester, but I HAVE to get this one in, so here goes.

Challenge: Detention in the Dungeons (MAY)
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Kid Lab Coat
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439280.new#new
Brief Description: I picked up a pattern AGES ago with the intent of making some clothes for my kiddo, but once I cut out the pieces, it kind of just sat around. Then my kid saw Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and requested a lab coat like Flint Lockwood's. I knew I could reconfigure the pattern I had to turn it into a lab coat, so a few tweaks later, I had a working pattern. However, I have a slight problem with keeping white fabric white in my house (I may or may not have a tie-dye problem), so several purchases of white fabric and/or potentially repurpose-able white sheets never made it through the tie-dye gauntlet that is the "Road" House. Finally, finally, with a sixth birthday date looming close I managed to gather two yards of untouched white cotton and complete this long-time WIP last weekend. Now it just has to stay white until after the birthday party on Saturday! Wink

12  Kid Lab Coat for at-home Mad Sciencing in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: May 11, 2015 01:18:57 PM
My kiddo is obsessed with at-home science experiments. Pretty much every time I go food shopping I have to stock up on Alka-Seltzer, Mentos, diet Coke, baking soda, vinegar, and food coloring, just to name a few favorites. In addition, he has been asking for a lab coat since he first saw Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (remember the scene where Flint gets his first lab coat? My son does!). Since he's turning six (!!) very soon and we are having a (what else?) science-themed birthday party, I finally got around to making him a lab coat of his very own. His only prerequisite was that it had "inside" pockets - for important science stuff, of course.

Here's the finished product:

I started with this pattern I picked up at the thrift store ages ago (pattern C) and ~2 yards of white cotton:

Some modifications I made to the pattern are as follows: I lengthened the pattern sleeves and the shirt overall and increased the number of pockets from one to six (three outside and three inside). The collar part was confusing and I ended up with extra fabric in the front, which became neat little lapels, so I'm cool with it. Grin

The skull logo just adds a bit of personalization.  Wink

Inside pockets in use:

Thanks for looking!

I made these wooden twinchies for spikefan in the STS swap. It's great to get a inspirational nudge from a fellow craftster-er. Grin

The pic isn't that great, but they are supposed to be: fire, abstract, tribal, and space inspired, respectively.

Awesome stuff ladies!! Love it all.

Unfortunately I was not as diligent as I should have been with taking pics of my package for Maman...here's what I do have...

A group shot of sorts:

You can see lots of tie-dye, the Buddha necklace, and a bit of the yoga belt I made.

I made Maman tie-dye leggings like these (but these are MINE Grin):

With a lotus stamp on the upper left corner...similar to this one that's on the back of her daughter's tie-dye:

And this one that's on a lavender sachet I also sent:

Here's another close-up shot of one of the tie-dyes:

And a little wood-burned sign (the only pic I have of it is among my messy craft space!):

I also sent a hand-dyed fat quarter in reds and oranges, but I did't get a pic of that...

Glad you liked it Maman! Sorry I didn't take pre-send pics! Hope you'll post some awesome action shots when you can!! Wink

I get to start! I received a wonderful package from Mamaneedles over the weekend!

First off, this gorgeous woven wall hanging. It's soooo soft!

Next, the best set of mala-style bracelets. The charms are so perfect, Maman. I'm actually wearing these today.


And a mala necklace to go with them!

She also sent not one, but TWO yoga shirts. I LOVE this first one. So clever of you to make it "Omie," Maman!

And detail on the second shirt (my full-length shot was blurry for some reason):

A SKIRT! Embellished with a cool design (is this bleach-dyed, Maman?):

Detail close up:

A GORGEOUS watercolor hamsa painting:

Some calendula seeds and a cute little pot:

And last, but certainly not least, two items from her daughter. A yogi pipe cleaner sculpture that looks just like me! Wink:

And a lovely meditative drawing. I'm hanging this at work where I have a mini art gallery of kiddo art:

Thank you so much, Maman. Everything is perfect and wonderful. I'll get your package in the mail tomorrow!
