21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Boppy and Boppy cover (I saved $30) on: November 08, 2008 01:32:14 PM
I finally made this for my little guy. He's just starting to sit with support. I know it isn't clothes. I didn't know where else to post it. I've been wanting to make one since I found out that I was prego again. They're so expensive to buy. The cover is fleece and the pillow is from a old bed sheet. I used a pattern. Simplicity 3561. The pattern is for the cover. So I just cut two of the back piece a little smaller. Then sewed it together and stuffed it. Slip stitched it closed. The cover called for Velcro but I used a few small buttons.

22  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Some new tops for my girl on: November 05, 2008 07:51:34 PM
I made a couple new tops for my DD. These tops are so quick and easy. So many possibilities. The first one is baby cord. I put some nonfunctioning buttons on the front to dress it up. The back is too big on that one. I have to cut the elastic a bit to make it smaller. The second one I used some material from a old maternity top. That one is my fave. I love these tops. She can wear them over a long sleeve shirt now and alone this summer. I used a pattern. Simplicity 4203.

23  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Strawberry Shortcake Smocket on: October 29, 2008 12:19:07 PM
I made my little girl a smocket. The Strawberry Shortcake fabric is flannel. I used a decorative stitch along thepocket. You cant tell from the pics. The inside is lined with the polka dots.

24  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Alexander Henry dress (updated pic on pg.2) on: October 29, 2008 05:27:33 AM
I finally finished this dress for my daughter. I had seen this Alexander Henry fabric a million times online and couldn't wait to score my own. Finally I found some at Joann's. I received a small discount on it but not much. Anyway I used a pattern
McCall's 4757. I'm in love with this dress.

She loves the little purse

I made a mistake in the back. The zipper was supposed to go all the way up the yoke. So I put a hook and eye at the top. That didn't fix it as I had hoped. So I will have to do something else. Any ideas girls ? I can't be the only one who has done this before.

25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Booties for the baby. on: October 26, 2008 06:23:51 PM
I made these a few weeks ago for my littlest one. I'm still playing with the pattern for size purposes. There reversable. The one side is baby blue flannel and the other is brown microfleece. I used this tute: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/reversible_fabric_baby_shoes It's very easy. The pattern size is for a very little baby. Like newborn size. My little guy is a size 1 so I increased the size by a 1/2 inch all the way around. That seemed to work. But the arch is still a little tight. So I'll have to go for round three. Third times a charm  Undecided
Oh and I want to make these for my toddlers. Does anyone know where to get that non- skid material to use for the soles?

26  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A scoodie for my girl. on: October 26, 2008 06:06:08 PM
I made this over the weekend for my daughter. I used Vegbee's tute. The hood shape is from a pattern -Zoma- gave me. The shell is baby cord and the lining is flannel. I put a layer of fleece in between for warmth. It came out soo cute. It looks better on someone less furry. Hee Hee  Grin

27  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Loungin Lizzard's on: October 26, 2008 05:51:46 PM
I made this little outfit for my 3 year old son. He picked the fabric out. So I bought three yards. It was 50% off the red tag price. What a deal. It's all knit so it's very comfy. He loves it. He'll probally live in it till I make something else with the rest of fabric. Any ideas girls? Oh, and I did use a pattern, McCall's M4643. I changed the top a little.

It's BIG. At least he'll get to wear it for a while.

I just left the ends surged. I thought it looked kinda neat that way. I also was in a hurry.

28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / New fall coat for my girl "lots of pics" on: October 01, 2008 06:41:00 PM
I made my first coat. Courtesy of Minkeyfeet Her versions are so cute.She was kind enough to let me try her pattern that she will soon be selling. After two weeks of a messy house (my kids love it when I sew, they get away almost anything). I finally finished it. I had lots of practice top stitching. I also finally concored the fine art of buttonhole making. I had to redo the pockets bigger than the pattern called for because I totally messed up the first set. When I removed them it left a line on the material where they had been before. Me and my seam ripper are now best friends. In the end I was very happy. So was my daughter. She picked out the lining. Which I love. She's two so you can only imagine the possibilities that the lining could have been.

The sleeves look scrunched because the lining in the sleeves is shorter than the outside and I wanted it to show. When She gets bigger I will untack them and the sleeves will not be scrunched anymore.

The inside is fully lined.

I want to embellish the pockets. I haven't decided what to do yet. Any ideas?
29  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / "Lots"of Firsts, "Lots" of Fun. on: September 29, 2008 01:05:50 PM
My friend let be use her surger for a couple weeks. So this was my first completed outfit with it. I put my first zipper on it. I MADE my first pattern. I also did my first toddler jeans recon. I made this outfit for about $3. All I bought was the zipper. I got the material at a garage sale over the summer. This older woman was selling her fabric. To make space. They gave you a laundry basket and said to fill it for $5.

30  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / First T-shirt recon on: August 02, 2008 08:19:05 PM
My husband had a couple old t-shirts that he couldn't wear anymore and my daughter like almost all 2 year old girls, love's anything she can put on. So I thought why not. After all, What Would Jesus Do  Grin

It looks like It hangs too low on the side in this picture, but it only looks like that because it was starting to come untied at the shoulder.
