having looked around at tutes for beibeis, scandis and mei tais I think I'm gonna go for the mei tai.
all i need to do now is have a rifle through my bits box and see what I need and what I've got... I know i have the padding and body material, but the strap material may have to be bought- for this I'll be glad to pay for "proper" material rather than the jumble bags I normally get my material in lol!!!!

I had a tomy baby backpack thing when soph was the same age a your dd, i wish I'd been able to make it myself- i would have saved myself a fortune! AND yours looks like it can be folded so I might have to try it.

those are adorable! my dd sooooo needs one lol!!! thinking I can recon one from one of my hubby's old T's....

BUT BUT BUT I don't own a serger, but would standard hemming and a bit of creative seam stitching work do you think? obviously using a ball end needle on jersey fabric...
like this?

as for adult size ones, wild things from wild ginger has a ski hat which is like the grasshopper hat only it only has one knotty bit.... it's a free download program from wild ginger. don't know if I'm allowed to link here so google it. I can highly recommend the program.

wow they are so cool!!!
if my DD wasn't growing so flipping quick I'd try this with one of my hubby's old t's- they're the kind where you gotta love the graphic on them, but the welding holes and oil stains just don't make for a good T any more....

good job on those trousers, I bet they're snuggly.

I realise i posted the wrong pic of the back, i thought exactly the same as you and made them bigger, that was a photo the hubby took to show me what the small ones looked like... I'm wearing my "cleaning the house" t shirt in that one. good job you can't seee the front, it's covered in stuff from making yesterday's lunch!!!!

there we go, bigger pockets lol!!!

I have shelved this project for a while 'cos it was just stressing me lol!! I sewed the bra in by taking apart an old bra. I hade the top of the dress using a pillowcase, then I just sewed the bra in along the underwires- NOT the rest of the bra, so basically it has bra bits flapping about inside util you do it up, then you can zip the back properly....I then cut the straps, put the whole shebang on and tied the straps around my neck to know where to sew the elastic together, took it off again. marked it with washable marker.
the cover for the strap was made like a scrunchie, threaded all the way onto one side, the elastic of the strap sewn thgether at the marked points, then the cover pulled all the way down and sewn to the bra base.

Keena- so true. like I said, I kept the bra part. I'm gonna so domething, just not right now 'cos I don't want to look at it lol!!!
2187  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skirt from...a skirt!!! on: February 16, 2008 02:14:57 PM
well my normal pic server is down so stuff it I'll use the craftster one lol!

this is a skirt which I have recon from an ugly skirt, some curtain material and a butterfly necklace. I'm really proud of it and went out in it today.
pics were taken by my mr.

I am so pleased with this, but annoyed that I didnt take any before pics! basically, that skirt was unflatering and came to about mid calf length. the curtains I was planning to make into a jacket but I don't think i have the knack, the patience or enough of the curtains!!!

whole skirt cost me about 4.50 (a shade under US$9.00).
