1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / I made by brothers shirt into a dress for his daugther on: February 20, 2008 03:01:11 AM
I just loved how Cheytown turned a mans shirt into a girls dress. I have been thinking of making one ever since I saw her post.

I had my brother drop of some shirts he didnt use anymore. Now, one of them has a new life as a dress for his daugther. She will be 2 on sunday, and this is her birthday gift fra the crafty aunt Smiley
Mine is a different model than Cheytowns, but the general idea is the same.

Front:


Back:

I cannot hem to save my life, but I think it turned out ok. I guess the little one wont mind the imperfections.

Thanks for looking.

Before christmas I made my son an apron for when he is in the kitchen with me or his dad (like every day Smiley).

Its very simple and made from a teatowel:

I used this great pattern:

It came out too big for my little head, but other than that Im happy with it. It was fast and easy to make.
Im going to dinner at a friends house on saturday. I might just bring it along and see if it fits one of my friends.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Fifties bib for the little one (with pattern link) on: January 21, 2008 03:21:13 AM
While the little one was sleeping I made a bib from a free pattern found here:
http://www.nicolemdesign.com.au/tips/index.html#bib

Here is the result.
The baby is now awake and hungry, so I got an action shot (impossible to make her smile. Too hungry I guess)

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Linen babyshoes. Now with pattern on p.3 on: January 16, 2008 01:10:09 PM
Inspired by these ber-cute babyshoes http://flickr.com/photos/catarinamadruga/page4/ I had to try to make something similar for my little girl. Not nearly as perfect as the "original" but here it goes:




Top is linen, lining is cotton and sole is suede leather. Button is painted wood.
Thanks for looking Smiley
