1  Harry/Hermione and Tonks in Halloween Costumes by graceless lady on: November 01, 2011 07:39:43 PM
My daughter wanted to be Harry Potter for Halloween this year. She decided she didn't want to wear the glasses after all, so she ended up looking more like Hermione.

I think she was just happy to have a wand.
And Harry/Hermione with Tonks.
Hubby Lupin was acting as cameraman, so, sadly no photos of him.

2  Fair weather jacket in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by graceless lady on: September 26, 2011 07:54:30 PM
I've had my eye on the Fair Weather Jacket pattern by Little Prints for some time. My daughter is finally big enough (they start at size 2), so I made her one.

I used red twill for the outer fabric and a cotton print for the lining. Perfect for the fall weather we're starting to have.

3  Leila & Ben Bolero Jacket in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by graceless lady on: September 05, 2011 01:11:21 PM
This is one of the cutest jacket patterns I've ever seen. I absolutely love the asymmetrical styling.

Easy pattern to work with. I finished it during my daughter's nap.

4  Cocktail apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by graceless lady on: July 29, 2011 04:48:06 AM
I usually make kids' stuff, but when I came across this fabric, which is probably not appropriate for children's apparel, I knew I had to use it for something. I love the retro-looking people, and there are drink recipes printed all over it. So handy!

So, half yard of fabric=half apron. Perfect for a little light housekeeping.

5  I'd like to be under the sea in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by graceless lady on: July 24, 2011 07:03:17 PM
My daughter's favorite animal is the octopus. She has a stuffed one she adores, and one of her favorite books is a book about pirates in which an octopus is featured. Lately, her enthusiasm is extending to more and more sea creatures. So, I made this for her:

And a close up of her favorite:

6  Nautical Skirt in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by graceless lady on: July 24, 2011 06:45:16 PM
I made this from some canvas I had left from some other project; I've forgotten what. It's a flat front a-line skirt with pockets.

I added a kick pleat in the back because, well, why not? And because I wanted to learn how to do it.

I embroidered a couple of anchors on the pockets for a nautical touch.

7  Gingham summer top in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by graceless lady on: June 22, 2011 07:25:53 PM
A little summer top to beat the heat.

And because it reminded me of a tablecloth in an Italian-American restaurant, I added a leaning tower of Pisa.

And an "action" shot. (Please excuse the hairbrush chewing.)

8  Flat-front shorts in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by graceless lady on: June 02, 2011 01:04:12 PM
Just a basic pair of linen shorts, flat in front, elastic in back.

I just modified a pattern I already had for elastic-waist pants. Basically, the front pattern piece needs to be made narrower because you're not gathering the front with elastic. I like the way they look. Just as easy to make as elastic-waist pants, but slightly dressier and more tailored-looking.

9  Dandelion summer top in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by graceless lady on: May 30, 2011 07:26:25 PM
It seems like we had a short spring around here, and today, summer showed up. So, I had to make the girl a little something to beat the heat. Basically a take on a pillowcase top.

And a close-up of the dandelion. The embroidery design is from Urban Threads.

10  Natural-Dye Easter Eggs in Easter by graceless lady on: April 23, 2011 05:30:10 AM
I've seen a lot of tutorials around about using natural dyes for Easter eggs, so I thought I'd give it a try. I decided on three colors. Yellow, red and blue. I used turmeric to make the yellow, beet powder to make the red (which turned out to be pink), and red cabbage to make the blue.
Instructions are pretty straightforward; just take whatever you're using as the dye, add it to boiling water, add a little white vinegar, stir and let cool. Then add the eggs and let them steep in the color.
And here's the finished product:

I think they turned out quite nice.
