1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: >>I Made Ballet Flats<< now with tutorial >>UPDATES<< on: November 22, 2008 08:13:46 PM
Very cool! 

I am in the midst of this same project!
My daughter wants black leather ones for inside the house for the winter.
She needs arch supports, has anyone attempted this?
I'm looking at an old pair, and the arch support seems to be under the sole, almost as if it were a small heel...

Very cute.  I love the striped longies. 

I have a 3 month old at home and a trying to figure out how to make a pair so we can try this. 
Did you use a pattern for those? 

3  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / I'm donating to Healthy Baby Program on: January 11, 2008 07:34:46 PM
My area runs Healthy Baby programs, which are focused at expectant and new mothers/families. 

These programs are run on a drop-in basis, and they try to have a door prize every week.  Good prizes do seem to get more participants through the door, especially in the lower income areas where the families have the most to benefit from attending these programs.   

I won the prize one week, and it was a beautiful hand knit baby blanket that a group of elderly women had made and donated.  (I felt guilty taking it, but sent them a thank-you note.)

Last week, the class I attended, they had no donations, so they put one of their own "meal bags" (can of soup, handful of noodles, and spices) up for the prize. 

This has inspired me to make some items to donate.  I know the families that attend my class could definately use some love-filled prizes.  I'm not a knitter, but may sew some baby outfits, shoes, pillows, plushies, etc. to donate.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Modify Soft Sole Shoe Pattern into Boots? on: January 11, 2008 07:16:30 PM
Seems many are now making their own soft sole baby shoes.

I have made my own for my son....


My question is, has anyone tried to make tall boots out of these patterns?

A friend of mine has young girls, and hates putting snowsuits on them to go shopping, because they get too hot.  Her problem is, if she doesn't put their snow pants on, their pants ride up, exposing their bare legs. 

I would like to try to modify the basic pattern so that it is still soft and flexible, but so that the tongue and back extends up the child's leg, to be worn under their pants.

Has anyone tried this?  Any success or tips?

I hope to find time soon to experiment.

Love your shirt!

Love the texture, love how easy it will be to play around with color!
This will be a great project to get a friend of mine into sewing.

Thanks for sharing!

Love this!

Been wondering how to cover an old suitcase ... I use one for my son's dress-up clothes, but it is plain ugly.  Actually, I think it might be the identical one that you re-made. 

Absolutely love the fur lining, but that wouldn't be practical for my purpose.  Also love the wild colors.

Thanks for sharing!

I really like this!!!

I have a 12 year old, and am trying to get her into making or modifying her own clothes instead of searching for designer crap.
I think this will definately catch her interest!

Thanks for sharing

I've never tried a project like this before, but now I might just have to.
Thanks for sharing your creation.

Very cute! 

I have a new baby on the way, so am looking to make a few teething toys, and I have a thre-year old who has been asking me to make him a stuffed dragon (actually, he asked me to dress up like a banshee and make him a stuffed dragon, after a story book he read), so this might just be my next project.

I too wanted to make a teepee for my son.  I found a pattern to use.  I wanted to be able to use this in the house, as well as outdoors in the summer.  I went shopping for material, looking for something that would provide shade and let some air flow through the teepe.  I chose burlap for the cloth, and bamboo sticks instead of PVC pipes.  The burlap was not the same width as the pattern called for, and the bamboo was not as long as required.  I ended up scrapping the pattern, and "winging" it myself.  My son loves the results, and it was also a big hit at his daycare.
