1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 2nd birthday outfit- with chenille ruffly pants on: February 04, 2008 07:47:27 PM
My daughters 2nd birthday isn't for a month and a half but I am in the sewing groove and wanted to get at least one birthday outfit done. So I took a shirt off of Targets clearance, added an applique, and made some cute chenille boutique style pants to match. The applique and the ruffle trim on the pants are made from a vintage sheet set I have (they will be a matching skirt soon Cheesy).

How fun are birthdays??

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Picnic dress- very kitchy! on: February 04, 2008 01:25:49 PM
I made around 6 dresses this weekend for my daughter, but she doesn't appreciate them right now so no model Sad. Here is what I call her picnic dress, with red gingham and vintage cottage kitchen fabric. I loved this fabric the moment I saw it and I am glad that I have finally done something with it. It truly is one of my favorite dresses. Oh, it also has a double faced sash around it that ties in the back.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Apron dress- reversible- SO Cute! on: February 02, 2008 10:04:41 PM
I have been wanting to make an apron type dress for my daughter, and I came up with this. The apron part itself is reversible, so it is two different looks in one dress. This one is a bit big in the arms and the neck, so I just finished up another one, but have no model to show it at this hour. Next I am going to try and make a dress with just the apron in front that ties in the back.

What do you think?

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Help me with my 100 wishes quilt! Please:) on: January 01, 2008 07:28:35 PM
Hi, I am a Craftster addict and my MIL is an avid quilter. I need your help please. My husband and I are adopting a litle boy from Uzbekistan and we need a 7" x 7" square of fabric (cotton, machine washable preferred, but not necessary). The fabric can be from anywhere: an old favorite t-shirt, a piece you saw in the fabric store and just loved, anything meaningful really.

Along with your square of fabric, we need a 3" x 5" or a 4" x 6" card with a good wish for our future son and a scrap of your fabric glued to the card. Your wish card can be as simple or as elaborate as you'd like. If you feel creative and want to decorate it, that's great! Your wish can be deep and thought-provoking or simple and fun. Poems, quotes, or anything else that floats your boat are fine too. The small pieces of fabric and the wishes go in a scrapbook so our son will be able to look at his quilt and see who sent each square and read the corresponding message. Please remember to sign your wish and include your city and state.

If you'd like to participate, email me/ PM me or leave a comment on my blog (www.touzbekistanandback.blogspot.com)and I'll get back with you and let you know where to send your square. Oh, and I would love to send you some fabric squares also for your own quilt!

Your thoughtfulness, time, and good wishes mean so much to us and we know it will mean just as much to our son someday. Thank you very much.

Oh, this tradition started with those adopting from China, but I think it is such a great idea that I am asking for your help to make one for my son. What a great keepsake! Below are some scrapbook page samples I found with the notes and fabric samples on them. Please includes pictures of yourselves too if you like!

Or are they too girly?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Reversible jumper- thanks Kimberlina!!! img heavy on: August 10, 2007 07:51:21 PM
Here is my take on the reversible jumper. I just love making these and plan on making many more. I can just picture her in these with long sleeve shirts/ turtlenecks and pants. Too cute! The light blue and floral is a pillowcase backed with flannel. The pink and brown is just a lightweight cord and forest friends fabric. I love both!

Thanks Kimberlina!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / hello Hello Kitty hat! *Now action packed* on: August 10, 2007 04:27:53 PM
Here is the Hello Kitty hat I just finished. The little one is napping (hence the just finished), so I have no model. I think it would be a wee bit too small anyway, so I will definitely be making more! 

What do you think?

Well, it definitely was too small for my daughter but I am for sure making another for her. You get the idea of what it looks like in the photos but it is most definitely stretched to its max and would look much better in her correct size. I think next time I am going to make the bottom trim thinner too.

Here are the pics:

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Un-Bearably cute cub hats on: August 10, 2007 12:05:22 PM
My new obsession (that and Kimberlina's romper:)), I came up with this pattern myself and am going to start selling them on my website and at the craft fairs we go to. Let me know what you think!

Oh, and sorry about the no shirt (my husband hates it when I let her run around like that) but it is hot out!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My reconned pillowcase on: August 10, 2007 11:57:28 AM
I just thought this was the cutest pillowcase and I wanted to do something other than the standard pillowcase dresses. So I gathered the skirt and attached it to my keyhole type top. I then added some eyelet trim and ribbon and there you have it. I love it on her. I think it makes her look like Mrs Roper! hee-hee
