31  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Bedsheet baby sling (pouch/pocket style) on: March 30, 2009 09:37:53 PM
I have a ring sling but I'm not so good at it, and it's tough to wear out of the house. It's one with a looong tail, so I feel kinda goofy when wearing it in public.
So I made this:

out of my bedsheets (no, he wasn't conceived on them).
The feature I like is the light blue thing, which is just Velcro and is removable. It makes a nice "cap" for my shoulder and shallows up the head part of the sling by gathering the fabric. I haven't seen pouch slings with them, but I got the idea from a website that I don't remember. I can't take credit for it, but I can't remember who to give credit to.

Yes, he's a boy, yes, the binky's pink and purple, it came with the diaper bag and we don't say no to free things.
32  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Newbie hats on: March 30, 2009 09:20:51 PM
I made some newborn hats for my sister-in-law's boss's benefit fundraiser. I happened to have a newborn lying around so he got to model for me.



You can tell by the finger what he thought of this one.


33  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / He's here! Pic of him in one of the outfits on: January 22, 2009 01:18:33 PM
Coen Silas, born 1/31/09

Excuse the pink & purple paci, it was free. We weren't planning on letting him have one, but oh well.

Both sets

I can't wait to get his cute little booty in these!

I stenciled a shirt to go with them - need to go back and fill in the bridges.

Here's the whole outfit with hat.

My son insisted I make "baby budder" some "oppiedopters" to match his own.
I plan on stenciling a helicopter Onesie too, just haven't had time yet.

and the hats.
The black one was practice to make sure I remembered what I was doing before I cut my expensive fabric.
These are all double-layered for my winter baby.

I wanted to make some clothes for the baby (due 2/13) but my regular sewing machine is stuck on zig-zag and I can't afford to go have it fixed. I needed something I could do completely with the serger without converting to coverstitch to hem. My grandma had given me some bright orange Tony Stewart t-shirts to make pillowcases for her, and I thought "aha!" I used the scraps from the neck (ankle cuffs) and hem (waistband/elastic casing) to do the helicopters, and scraps from another t-shirt for the mixtape/boombox/headphones one.
34  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Jeans from my jeans and a romper on: October 15, 2008 12:12:01 PM
These were from a long time ago, I just never posted them.
These jeans were from a pair of mine that fit at the waist but were too short. I traced a pair of his pants onto the legs and made these.

I used the original waistband and button for the front and sewed the loops down.

Back is elastic.

Alexander Henry applique on the left leg front

What a cute kid. He's really thinned out since these pictures, plus I no longer need to roll them.

Back

Butt pocket on the right leg side with more AH applique

Romper! I was asked to make this as a "for example" for someone who is selling the pattern. I love the pattern and it's easily altered to put snaps in the crotch or make it reversible or add pockets or lace to the legs or whatever. I made this one exactly as per the instructions but I made a shorts version with a snap crotch for my cousin's baby.

closer look at the top

I get sad when I see these pictures; I miss his hair!

a little windy...

35  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Wind turbine for the kid. Simple but I like it. on: October 11, 2008 02:52:24 PM
My husband is part of the first class for wind turbine technology at our local college. We just had the groundbreaking ceremony for the building this week and I made this shirt for our son to wear there. We got introduced to several high-ups, followed by "and she made that shirt!"

3 layers of white Speedball, followed by one quick thin layer of silver acrylic.

Can't pose for a pic without a car in his mouth

36  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / You'll probably be seeing a lot of this fabric (MORE 10/15) on: August 15, 2008 11:02:48 AM
The fabric fairy is my favorite place to buy material ever. They sent me a packet of samples for Christmas, and one of them was this adorable helicopter print knit. At that time my son was 10 months and didn't have any preferences either way, but now, helicopters are his favorite things in the world. I found the little scrap and thought, "wouldn't that be great for Kalten?" So I checked online and the site said they were out of stock. I e-mailed them asking if they could possibly find more, and they said "oh, we actually still have about 2 yards" I said I'd take whatever they had, which actually turned out to be 4 and a quarter yards! So lots and lots of helicopters. Here's the first thing I made for him:

He fell asleep so this was all I could get at first.

I took this the next day after he got them all wet from dew :/
37  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A genuine necktie for my little man on: March 20, 2008 11:53:52 AM
I don't get to make an Easter dress so I threw all my Easter Craft Energy into this absurdly labor-intensive
necktie that will be worn with the collared shirt I altered for him to wear in my friend's wedding.

Sorry for the creepy doll pic, he refuses to let me near him with it to model.
My niece wore it for a minute.

5+ hours of hand-sewing teeny invisible stitches.

Tied

Not tied. It's a four-piece pattern (tie part, neck part, plus facing for each pointy end),
and I can make two out of one fat quarter.
38  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Chopstick Handle Purse - my own design! (IMGx11) on: January 23, 2008 02:18:46 PM
I volunteered to make a purse for a door prize for my church's women's retreat. I had an idea in my head and just to make sure it would turn right side alright, I made a practice version:









The corduroy was made with pink backing that peeks through the wales. It is paired with cute vintage floral cotton in pinks and purples for the lining.

The purse stands on its own, about 8" tall. It's 12" across at the top and the base is 8" by 3".

The handles are made from flat oval takeout chopsticks which were finished with clear resin spray and fitted into specially-made pockets for security. They are removable but will not fall out with normal use.

It's made without topstitching because I didn't want to interrupt the solidness of the brocade in the final version.

And here's the one that I donated (I should not have taken pictures on my blue ironing board):











Made with shorter chopsticks. Rich blue brocade fabric with light blue tiny seed print cotton lining.
39  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Please recommend me a pattern on: December 31, 2007 07:47:17 PM
I want to make a jacket for my son. Here are the requirements:
  • size 2T and/or bigger
  • lined
  • zip-up
  • hooded
  • waistband at the bottom (not elastic)
  • I'd like a flap that buttons over the zipper but not required
I have black corduroy and adorable transportation-themed thermal knit, and I don't want to improvise. I can adjust a little bit, for example I know how to add lining when a pattern doesn't call for it. I just would like something as close to what I want as possible, if it exists. Can you help me?
40  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Daddy's little stenciled shirt on: December 19, 2007 11:40:22 AM
From this picture:

To this stencil:

To this shirt:



For this daddy!

I haven't stenciled in a long time, I've been working more on sewing, it's so nice to be back.
What do you think, will he like it?
