1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Child Costume: Little Red Riding Hood on: November 02, 2007 09:07:27 AM
My dd wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood this year, so in my stash I had some Red and White Gingham I used for the dress.  For the cape I used red suedecloth and lined it with fleece so she'd be warm trick or treating.  (I made another one in light broadcloth for her to wear to her school party).  I also made the napkin in the basket and her hairbows.  The only thing bought were her tights, shoes, and the basket.  Oh I also made a cape for her special "bunny", you can kind of see it in the basket  Grin  I'm hoping she will wear the cape for Christmas and for the next couple years LOL!  Thanks for looking!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sewing tshirts question~please help on: August 27, 2007 03:15:25 PM
I really want to start doing some of the Tshirt recons and such that I've seen and have some ideas of my own.  My question is this...

Can I use just my regular sewing machine to sew on tshirt material?  I have not worked with knits in the past except to put appliques on tshirts.  I do not own a serger.  If so, do you use a regular needle or a ballpoint needle?  What kind of stitch do you use?  How do you finish the seams?

thank you for any tips you have!!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Big/Lil Sis outfits on: August 24, 2007 07:52:15 PM
I made these for my 2yo niece and niece to be (due Sept. 10). I appliqued the tshirt and onsie, and made the skirt using a tutorial I found on the web (I LOVE tutorials!!). I wanted to add a skirt to the onsie but decided not too and will make just a simple skirt once she is born and I can measure her for length. I don't have enough left over fabric to guess! Anyway here they are, hope you enjoy!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first post~ my take on Cheytown's dress! on: July 24, 2007 08:26:52 PM
Hi all!  I am a big time lurker here but only recently registered.  I've finally gotten around to trying one of the many fantastic projects I've found here.  This is from Cheytowns tutorial.  I made just a few slight changes to the original, I changed the shape of the top of the front of the dress so I didn't need to use any trim.  And I used left overs to make the ruffle.  If I make it again I'll have to rethink the straps.  I didn't measure before I cut and they were a bit short, thus they didn't turn out as ruffly as I'd have liked, but it still works I think Cheesy  So anyway, here you go!

*OK, so apparently I cannot post pics til I get a higher post count LOL, so I'll post some links*

Thank you so much Cheytown!  I'm going to make another one out of a denim shirt and have her wear it with a long sleeve shirt underneath for the cooler weather when she goes to school!
