1  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Raleigh area - Which Craft Fairs on: June 15, 2010 07:24:26 AM
I am looking to sign up to do some craft fairs this fall and winter and am wondering what craft fairs some of the veterans out there would never want to miss?  I've already gotten the information for Mistletoe Market and am looking for a few more.  TIA!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Lil Firecracker and a few other projects (IMG heavy) on: May 25, 2009 12:36:28 PM
I saw this really sweet patriotic dress at cracker barell, but was unwilling to pay the $40.00 so I went home and created my own version for less than $4.  I already had the red and white stripe fabric, the pattern and the corkers make up Smiley

semi action shot - she was praying

A little apron top - pattern from YCMT (faith double layer top)

summer dresses I made on some snow days, I had to have something to look forward too (mccalls, see and sew,  and new look patterns)

skorts (YCMT preppy skirts patterns-the khaki one is my own modifications on the pattern)

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Favorite Twirl Pattern? on: April 06, 2009 07:46:47 AM
My daughter (3 yr old) is all about the twirl-ability of a dress.  Two of our favorites are a tshirt dress that has three gathered strips (from a Hancock pamphlet 2 yrs ago) and then a portrait peasant dress from YCMT that I accidentally made the skirt twice the width the pattern intended (turned out great anyway and she LOVES that dress.)
Just wondering what your twirling girls favorite dresses are and if you can share the pattern information with me? 
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Elastic in Sleeves of Peasant Dress on: December 26, 2008 07:07:08 AM
I am planning to make my little girl her birthday dress in the next week.  I intend to make a peasant style dress.  I have one fabric for the bodice and skirt, and a contrast fabric for the sleeves, a contrast band between the bodice and skirt and for a ruffle at the bottom.  I love the look I've seen many of you ladies acheive with the sleeves by putting elastic into the sleeve and would like to know the way that you accomplish this.  TIA! 
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Wet Bag Suggestions Needed on: July 10, 2008 08:16:17 AM
Is there any way to make a wet bag (waterproof type bag for cloth diapering mom) that doesn't involve buying PUL?
I am hoping to make one for a friend but don't want to order a yard of PUL just for this one thing and pay the shipping....
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Favorite cloth diaper pattern? on: June 30, 2008 10:12:31 AM
A friend has asked me to make her some cloth diapers.  She prefers the pocket kind.  I am clueless as I never used cloth...
What's your favorite pattern for cloth diapers, pref. pocket kind?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Sewing A Tube Bra for a Tween on: June 19, 2008 05:46:36 AM
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to go about sewing a tube type strapless bra?  A very good friend is in need of one for her tween.  She is a 28 with 2 little bumps.  I have some white knit fabric that I think I can make something up with, but just wanted to see if anyone has helpful hints or a tute link.  I've looked and came up with zilch.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Tops for 3 cousins on: June 07, 2008 06:22:59 AM
My mom specifically requested that I make my daughter and my one neice something that matched.  She wanted a dress, but refused to take measurements of my neice who lives 550 miles away from me, and I was leary of just trying something out only to have it not fit.  I decided to make them these cute little tops from a pattern I bought from YCMT called the Hope Joy Bubble Top.  It worked up very easily, I used fat qtrs, and had enough left to piece together a 3rd top for my other neice who lives 800 miles away.  THe girls are 2 (mine,) 4 and 6. They are not matching, but co-ordinated, and I was able to make all 3 in less than 12 hours along with feeding my family 3 times that day, a trip to the pool for 2 hours and a trip to walmart to purchase additional elastic.
Sorry for the long story.  Here are pics:

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Daisy Dress on: June 05, 2008 04:03:09 AM
I just love the way this dress turned out!  My daughter felt the same way and would not take it off after I had her try it on last night.  Thank goodness I waited until after our spaghetti supper.  It is a pattern I bought from YCMT called the criss cross dress.

it is perfectly twirlable!

I was commissioned to make this dress by a friend.  It turned out so SWEET!  I found the alexander henry fabric at Joann's.  I had never worked with rick rack before and am so glad I took the plunge-it looks too darn cute!
