1  wide neck blouse in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Small Wonders on: September 25, 2008 10:30:34 AM
This is one of a handful of styles I have played with, each shirt I have made has a different neck line. I like to experiment, and I love elastic, since I'm not good with zippers or buttons Embarrassed  I usually do a casing for elastic or ribbon all the way around the top, but with this one I put it only on the top and bottom of the sleeves before sewing them to the body front and back. I know the paintshop masks look funny, but I haven't decided yet if I'll share the kids' faces on a public forum Undecided It seems people mostly jusy post baby and toddler faces in here, haven't seen many kids at all, but I have not been here long.

2  ruffle pants and freestyle shirt in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Small Wonders on: September 25, 2008 10:10:03 AM
     My middle daughter Aurora doesn't get any bigger around the waist, but her leggs grow like crazy, so I added some fun length to her purple pants to get more use out of them. I thought it would be interesting to try 2 long layers of ruffles  (purple is her favorite color) and I have been hanging onto a purple gingham fabric forever, I only like gingham in small doses, so I rarely use it, but it worked well with the other fabrics(in my opinion)
     The shirt was just a bunch of trial and error,It's a bit loose under the arms, but it's not so big, she can't wear it.

I was tickled pink to see your Totoro dolls, My kids and I watch that movie more than anything else. We have a growing collection of Hayao Miyazaki films, He's brilliant, and his works are just magical. You've really put the essence of the season into these. I can't wait to try making them for my girls, who pretend to be Mei and Satsuki all the time. I might even give a go at a giant Totoro floor pillow. Thanx for the inspiration.

Making a stuffed replica is one thing, but this Cat Bus is extreme.

4  Wyllow's Funky Cat Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Small Wonders on: September 19, 2008 01:13:44 PM
Hi everyone,
     I've been really enjoying looking around at all your great projects, and finally decided to join and share some of my own stuff. I look forward to meeting you.
     This is my daughter Wyllow  in her one of her new school outfits, we got the idea for these sectioned pants from the movie Dinotopia, I might just make myself a pair in Earthtone colors like in the film. I found a regular pants pattern to get the basic shape and just measured how big we wanted each section. The top is the only piece that's cut from a strechy material, it's about a 6 inch wide strip, cut a couple inches larger than her hip measurement. I folded it down so that it's about 3 inches wide and I put an elastic casing at the top only on the back half ( she prefers elastic to a drawstring anyday, especialy at school.)
      My kids have hat day fundraisers at school pretty often so I thought I'd try a brim hat pattern that I've been holding onto for while. I don't like patterns much, and I enjoy the challenge of figuring stuff out, but I'm sure glad I used one on this. I added some ricrac for fun. The blue and green are wrapped around each other in a way that makes my daughter's initials WMWMWMWM (Wyllow Maureen) all the way around, she liked that.
     Sorry the pictures aren't very clear, When I uploaded them they went from 300 -500 KB down to 37 KB. Hope you like them anyway.
