1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: brainstorming for winter on: November 10, 2009 07:19:26 AM
We used baby legs, both on our wrists and ankles.  My dd's pants would always ride up on her legs and they worked great for making sure her skin wasn't exposed.  Same deal with her coat and gloves, I just can't get the coat and gloves to stay together.  We still use them now and she is 5, so it's a worthwhile craft, cuz you'll get tons of use out of them. 

Here's a tute for making them http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=265854.0

I didn't finish mine as nicely, I ran the serger over the edges with a satin stitch I believe, it made it ruffle just a little.  We also made a set with a button hole for her thumb and that works great for under gloves.

Of course the best way to keep warm is to stay home and snuggle!!

There is a similar pattern called Anna by Farbenmix.  http://www.farbenmix.de/anleitungen/schnitte2/ANNA/anna-guide.pdf  You would have a lot of work in making all the ruffles like the one you posted, but you might come across some pre-made fabric that would simplify that part.

There have been lots of variations of that pattern posted on here.  Here is one where someone drafted their own pattern. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284983.0

It seems like a vary versatile and forgiving piece.  I have been wanting to try it myself Smiley  Post your results if you go for it!

So, after enjoying all of your lovely posts, cute pictures and inspiring ideas for months, it saddened me to hear that you might not be enjoying crafting after contributing so much  Sad  But it also reminded me of a project that I had seen on Martha Stewart's site http://www.marthastewart.com/article/sewing-room-in-a-closet-with-jim?autonomy_kw=craft%20room%20in%20a%20closet&rsc=header_1  Craft room in a closet. 

We definately need a discussion on how to craft in limited spaces!  I see it's a common thread around here  Wink
(sorry about the bad pun, I just couldn't resist!  Grin)

The upside is, this means you get to create a NEW space for your crafting or find a new time to have to do it.  I always enjoy freshening things up and changing them around, maybe this will be a great opportunity for you  Kiss Let us know what you come up with for your new space  Cheesy

These are so very sweet   Smiley

Do you have a source you can share for the frames?  I have never found any that fit my budget, ie, they seem kinda pricey at the places I've looked at in the past.  Yours are inspiring me to want to find some...  

Thanks for sharing  Wink

How cute  Cool  I bet she is super proud of her roller derby mama!   I like that it looks like it's two shirts in a way still, but sorta a hoodie at the same time.  I'd like to have one for myself.

I've gotta say, she's definately got the 'tude to rock that shirt, what a cutie!

Very nice recon  Wink

Thank you so much for sharing this!!  I just got a nice little brother 1034d off of craigslist and gathering was one of the things I was hoping the serger would help me do better.  

I am going to try this out this morning  Wink

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Are your handmade gifts unappreciated? on: November 18, 2007 10:05:14 PM
I really can't stand that this is what the holidays have come down to.  I really think you should give what is in your heart.  I'm sorry but I don't want some silly prepackage pack of lotion or some stinky candle!  I always think, what must they think of me if all they just run out and buy whatever they see first.  Cost really doesn't matter to me.

We try to set up guidelines before hand one some of the gifting we do.  Say, all under $20 or only gifts for the kids, that way we aren't going overboard and no one's feeling "jilted."

In fact, sometimes I think this way gives the crafty gifts the advantage b/c you can get something so much cooler and often better than a store bought item of the same price.   Of course, "cooler" and "better" might not be what others would think?

I have no one who gives me anything homemade, and I know I would love it.  I say, don't worry about it b/c the cash value isn't what should determine if a gift is "good."  I'll stop ranting now, I've just been disgusted by having to stop at a local big box store and see everyone crazily shopping for the holiday this week, BLEH!
