22  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to fix it when a pattern sizing is WAY OFF on: January 18, 2009 07:56:59 PM
well what exactly is the problem? they best way to ensure a good fit with commercial patterns is to measure the child and sadjust accordingly alot of commercial patterns have a line for u to adjust length as far as width just take of the same amount from each side of the pants to get a slightly smaller fit.

So I went to Joann's for their most recent sale, and came across this darling Ladybug print, I usually stay away from stuff like,  so I was excited to find some polka dots to coordinate with it and came up with this little number the entire outfit is made from e-books from YCMT I added buttons for embellishment they are daisys I large white one and a small red one n the middle.

25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Quick Baby Shower gifts on: January 12, 2009 11:31:50 AM
I needed to whip something up quick for a baby shower for a friend that was having her first girl.

I did a couple of baby onesie's with coordinating bloomers this was fun as it was a simple project! I am thinking of making another set soon.
I also did a bib and matching burp cloth the back of the burp cloth is a terry cloth material.
I also dyed the onesie brown using RIT fabric dye and then washed it in baby detergent.

this is the back:

totally cute gives new meaning to the pettiskirt and would be a great skirt by itslef in colored fabric although a yard for a 2month old probably equated to 5 or 6 yards for my 4 yr old!!!

I especially like the knit pieces as well, I really haven't even began to test my skill on knit! your pieces really inspire me to jump in there and give it a try!
28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Gathering with clear elastic on: November 12, 2008 07:26:59 AM
what is it that you are trying to gather?
why not buy a ruffler on Ebay they sell them all day long for about 5 w/ shipping.
granted it will take some planning with a ruffler but it is tons easier if you are gathering ruffles.

If you are just gathering for fullness crochet thread works set ur stitch length to the highest setting and then just pull and it slides right thru
29  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Feelin Twirly on: November 11, 2008 07:00:39 PM
Bought some new patterns from YCMT and decided to try them out both are twirl style skirts the first one is the "Edith Twirl Skirt" and the second one is The Tess Rouched and Ruffled Skirt (only I didn't do the rouching!)
These are great patterns for anyone to make super easy instructions!

I really like how these turned out can't wait till spring to make more for the warmer weather!

I rip the seams on the outside of the legs,  sew whatever and then serge them back closed again.

I agree looking at them now for visual balance the ruffles should be reversed but OH WELL!
