1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Warm winter coat (advice needed) on: November 21, 2007 06:00:56 AM
I just inherited an enormous stash of fabric from a neighbor - it dates back to the 60's. It would fill about 10 of those 30 gal storage tubs.

It is full of stuff...lots of wools, jersey knits, searsucker ginham...

In any case I want to make my four year old a winter coat out of some of the corduroy. I have at least 5 yards in a bright red.  Has anyone done this? I also have some 300 polartec fleece I plan on lining it with to make it warm enough.

I am trying to figure out a good pattern to use, and if it is possible to end up with something machine washable.

Any ideas?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Kool Aid Sweater on: November 20, 2007 06:15:52 PM

Finished this a while back, and now that it is getting chilly it has seen a lot of use.

It is Knit Picks Palette, originally in tan. I over-dyed it into about 6 different shades using kool-aid. Knit it us as a top-down raglan, shading the yarn from green to purple.

The best part is it still smells a little of kool-aid.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Blanket with holes...done! on: March 13, 2007 03:55:40 PM
My sister in law asked me to make a blanket "with holes" for her new baby. Here it is:

I haven't crocheted in a while, and I'm not much on pink, but I was actually asked to make holes and couldn't resist.

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Pinch Prevention...St Patty's T-Shirt on: March 03, 2007 06:16:11 PM
My oldest daughter is living in terror of St. Patrick's Day. She's convinced we'll forget green and she'll spend the day getting pinched.

To keep her safe I made this freezer-paper stencil. We used the cheapo 99 cent acrylic paint from the craft store and sprinkled silver glitter on top.
