1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first SLEEVES! on: March 29, 2009 01:43:44 PM
Set in sleeves, that is :-)

I'm disgustingly proud of myself, even if the dress is a touch too big.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A much cuter hat! on: March 28, 2009 11:41:41 AM
This time, I *know* its cute LOL.

I modified the pattern to get rid of some of the droopiness and size it down a little. It ended up a touch too short of my kiddo.... that's fine, it wasn't for her anyway LOL.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Either it's really cute... or REALLY ugly? on: March 23, 2009 10:51:46 AM
I made this for my daughter ( she MUST keep her scar out of the sun and she's a bit on the bald side... ) and I can't decide if its REALLY cute or REALLY ugly.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / More Baby Shoes ( and a long story ) on: March 21, 2009 12:46:32 PM
I know these are easy and all that.. but I'm so disgusting proud of myself that I had to share. I'm 31? weeks pregnant with #3 and its been a really rough couple of months... I've totally ignored the pregnancy because my older one had brain surgery... Then my sewing machine crapped out. And the one I bought to replace it? Crap.

I finally got a great sewing machine and all of a sudden, all the things I COULDN'T do - like baby shoes - are suddenly possible! AND I'm finally excited about the baby whose coming in OMG 51 days!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first almost successful baby shoes! on: March 18, 2009 04:54:29 PM
I am the lone baby shoe maker. I can make one.. but I cannot make two. Or I can't even make one and I don't bother making the other one!

Imagine my surprise today when I managed to make TWO that actually look like they'd work?

Ignore the totally unembellished part - I'm going to add tiny pink buttons :-)

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Easiest Ever Jammies on: February 28, 2009 03:30:05 PM
My daughter will be having surgery next week and I needed some easy two piece jammies. The hospital ones never stay on ( the elastic is usually shot! ) and her fleece jammies are a PITA to take on and off when she has to potty.

I whipped these up using VegBee's peasant shirt tutorial ( which i have memorized LOL ).

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / This is all VEGBEE's Fault!!!!!!!!!! on: September 02, 2008 03:59:15 PM
Baby KT's new skirt, size 12 months.

2.5" squares. A MILLION of them.

Two hours and fifty five minutes from cutting to pictures.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Vegbee patchwork circle skirt for adopted baby ( Img Heavy ) on: September 01, 2008 01:10:51 PM
And I am NEVER doing this again. A lady I know is adopting a special needs baby from Vietname and while making this skirt for MY daughter, it was screaming at me to be sent to baby N.

74 squares of my absolute FAVORITE fabrics that I cried while cutting. But it was sooo worth it. I didn't put in a waistband because I am not sure how old baby N will be so I'm trying to decide between elastic that I close with a pin, or a drawstring.



Starting to gather the layers

Almost done

Any thoughts on whether I should do it with elastic & a pin or a drawstring?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / To cut or not to cut - that is the question on: August 31, 2008 11:20:07 PM
I am making a patchwork twirly skirt.

I am using my very very most favoritest ever fabrics. You know, the ones you save every little scrap of, for a quirky applique or some odd, because you simply can't bear to part with it?

I am bawling as I cut into my pieces - there might have been enough of this one for sleeves on the babys' shirt, or this one would have made a perfect accent on that other fabric over there.

Some of the pieces, I just want to hold and to pet and to fondle. Remnants of fabrics I could NEVER afford on my SAHM budget.

Anyone have fabric they just want to LOOK at and never sew ?
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 1 hour, 20 bucks, 9 pairs of BabyLeg Knockoffs on: August 28, 2008 07:28:02 AM
And a toddler who can pee in her baby potty without be naked. I *do* live in canada, after all, and I'm not comfortable with her going naked when its only 50* outside. The baby legs are great - better than tights, because I don't need to take them off every time she pees. And at 18 months, she's peeing A LOT.

There is actually a 10th pair, but she was sitting crooked in the potty and they needed to be washed.
