Thank you so much!  Cheesy

Great - hope everyone finds it helpful!  Cheesy

The decorative fabrics here are silk, which is my favorite way of making them.

The fabric is lovely. This looks like a great baby carrier, but you must have very strong shoulders to carry around that rather large child. He looks quite heavy, but what lovely blond hair!

Thanks! He actually was around 30 lbs in that picture.  It is hard to do a front carry, but a back carry is much easier when they weigh that much.  I also make my carriers with foam around the shoulder area to make them more comfortable to carry the weight.

Fantastic job!  I love finding good deals and making them over to be unique...that is so cute how you added the ruffles.  It such cute outfit all together...and your daughter is adorable wearing it, too.
714  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My design - piggy dress for my daughter (shirred back) on: March 19, 2008 08:27:44 AM
I have made the basic top design many times.  The back is shirred and the bodice is lined.  The skirt I just start cutting and piecing and figure out along the way what I want to do.  Eventually I will probably do a tutorial for this type of dress, but not right now.  I don't have time!

Fun picture -

Picture of the inside and the halter top -

Picture just after I finished it up...she wanted to wear it right away, sweatpants and all!

Adorable!  I love the pink/brown combination with that trim. Looks very well made!

Great job!  Looks like your daughter really enjoys the twirlability of it, too!
717  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: A couple dresses for my daughter on: March 19, 2008 08:12:59 AM
Very cute...both your daughter and the dresses!  Smiley Great job on modifying it, too.  It does look like it was supposed to be that way.
718  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Tutorial - Mei Tai on: March 19, 2008 07:25:19 AM
Hi there!  I'm new and thought I would share a Mei Tai tutorial that I have made previously.  I called them "Stacy's Stylin' Mei Tai's" when I sold them.  This is a .pdf file, so you will need Adobe Reader to see it.  It is picture heavy so have patience while it loads.  


Here are a few pictures of Mei Tai's I have made (I've made over 50....probably over 60 at this point!)



Hope you find it useful!
719  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Why?? Do you sew for your children? on: March 19, 2008 07:13:30 AM
I love to design clothes and designing for little girls is pretty easy.  The sizing and fit is easier to accomplish.  My kids (3 and 4) are also on the skinny side, so it is nice to be able to make clothes that don't fall off of them.  My daughter will proudly say that mommy made her outfit, mostly because people gush over how cute she is wearing her new dress/outfit (...and she is of course! Wink ).  Mostly, I just like to customize clothing and give them something unique that doesn't break the bank. 
720  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is your favorite fabric designer? on: March 19, 2008 06:31:45 AM
I like all the fabric designers mentioned, too.  I love Heather Baileys line at Free Spirit - its so fresh and girly.

SwaggerLeigh - you will find most of them online or in quilt shops.  I have a fabric mill outlet near me that carries Kaufman and some Moda.  I personally just shop there since I can usually get nice quilting cottons for $3.99/$4.99 a yard regular price.  I'm too cheap to buy online and they have a huge selection.
