1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Fall outfit and purse, less than 8 square inches of fabric left! on: October 21, 2010 10:32:13 PM
DD really loved this tshirt, but did not like how it bared her belly, so off to Joannes.  They happened to have this really lovely burgundy and copper fabric that matched -- hard for the photos to do it justice, but I love this fabric.  It was a comedy of errors getting the outfit together, ran part of it under the serger by accident and cut a big hole in it.  Made the pants too small because I never use a pattern any more, and can't get my mind to agree that the diva has grown two sizes at least -- had to add ruffles on bottom AND panels on the sides to get them to fit.  Yikes.  Still, she likes it -- the weight of the purse makes it a bit slanty looking, but it's not.  The model wasn't feeling all that cooperative. haha

Nicely done, they look so comfy, and what a beautiful little girl you have, love those curls.  Shocked)

Very nicely done!  JoAnnes is having a big sale on fleece right now, and I've been eying it.  So hard to pick which fleece to use -- there's the antipill stuff, and now this ultra cuddle stuff that is softer, and of course, some really cute patterned ones....  that dalmatian fabric is super cute, great colors.  Shocked)
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Palazzo pants, halter, then scraps to the jacket on: September 18, 2010 05:50:26 AM
I made this very summer outfit last week, wish I had gotten it done earlier.  Anyway, the Diva loved it.  The halter, picked up for $1 at a consignment store (I love to find the clearance rejects and give them a new home, it's my hobby, lol) was the inspiration for the outfit -- it came embroidered, just needed a bit more fabric added to cover bare belly.  The pants were simple, just making each tier 1.5X larger than the last one.  The jackets is where I use up my scraps.  I keep a supply of denim jackets on hand for that purpose, all found at thrift stores.  White denim is an especially versatile find -- I get excited when I see one of those!  haha





5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Cluck Clutch on: June 21, 2010 09:03:30 PM
OK, I don't carry a purse, never have, but I would totally carry this chicken purse.  And I don't crochet much either because I have carpal tunnel and my hands go numb in seconds holding a crochet hook, BUT  I would totally suffer the pain and try to make one of these!  It totally, totally ROCKS!

Those are super cute -- I think the red one is my fave because it looks like something Lucy would want the money from Ricky Ricardo to buy! lol  Great job!  If you have any fabric left, some boutique pants or pantaloons would look great, especially under the blue one.

Your welcome -- it just occurred to me that she has really outgrown that jacket!  I hadn't noticed until I looked at the photo -- well, that jacket in her mind is THE ice skating jacket, so I won't be able to sneak that one away any time soon.  You can probably tell from the impish smile in the photo, but she definitely has a mind of her own. lol  I'll have to keep my eye out for a bigger size at the thrift shops.  Wink

Well, I'm lucky, the almost 11yo is a stick, and can still fit her behind in those size 6X/7s -- she just has legs like a giraffe. lol  But if I had a pair of shorts like that, I'd rip or cut the side seams and add a strip on each side -- I've seen ones where they patchworked a strip and then put it in -- I'd be tempted to do that, because why use one fabric when you can use four or five, right?  lol
HTH,
Catherine

This is very special, and I love the 3Dness of it, the combo of photography, knitting and sentimental tiny things.  GREAT job.

My three girls went to ice skating camp last week, and they notify us on WEDNESDAY that the girls need to wear black pants for the finale number on FRIDAY (thanks ice rink, lol).  Maybe most little girls have black pants, but only my oldest had some.  The solution in this house is always Goodwill, but all they had was two pair of size 6X/7 pants, which fit neither child.  So, I cut the bottom six inches off one pair, and banded them with a little flashy silver fabric -- I narrowed up the legs quite a bit -- they are still a little largish on her bum, even though I took in the waist several inches, but there are pockets, and I didn't feel like messing with that.  For the other dd, (not pictured because she did not wear her pants today when I took them to the rink again), I added about a four inch band of silver, and then the bottom of the other pants.  They were both pleased as punch.  Wink
