31  Super Easy and Cute Baby Bib in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by drgdlg on: August 16, 2008 11:21:23 AM
I found this pattern at nested.typepad.com.  It's very easy and makes a cute bib!  The only changes I made were I used ribbon folded in half instead of bias tape along the top of the pocket and I used a snap closure instead of velcro.

I made this one from Scooby Doo flannel, though you can't tell too well on the little bib!

Thanks for looking!

32  My old t-shirts into clothes for my baby girl in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by drgdlg on: August 16, 2008 09:47:16 AM
I took two of my old t-shirts and turned them into clothes for my baby girl.  There are no patterns- I just used clothes I already have for her as a guide.  And- there is no model yet... but, she's due in 20 days!!

This is a shirt that I think will fit her in the spring.  The shirt is made up of the main body, the ruffled bottom, a small extra piece at the top, and the straps (all fabric form the original shirt). I added four buttons- one at the base of each strap.

This  is a dress.  I think it will fit her a little sooner than the shirt.  The dress is only 3 pieces- front. back, and the kangaroo pouch pocket on the front. I stitched up the raw edges around the top using a multi-colored cross stitch thread and added the pocket using a zig-zag stitch on the machine. The dress closes at the straps using buttonholes and the two pink buttons.

Thanks for looking!

33  Little Black Mary Jane Booties for my baby girl! in Knitting: Completed Projects by drgdlg on: August 16, 2008 08:56:35 AM
I get tired of all the pink and white that it out there for little girls, so I decided to make my baby girl some black Mary Jane booties.  They're made from Lion Brand Micro Spun in Ebony.  I'm quite happy with how they turned out- my first completed booties!!  I only have pictures of them, not her wearing them.  I'll post them once she's born- she's due in 20 days!!

Here is a link to the pattern: http://freepatterns.blog.com/605518/

34  Three Completed Drop Stitch Scarves in Knitting: Completed Projects by drgdlg on: August 16, 2008 08:44:35 AM
I love pretty, fancy yarns and I love showing them off by turning them into scarves by using drop stitch.  These are three I've finished recently.  I think they all three have different rows of garter between the drop stitch rows, but they're all the same basic idea.

The yarn I used for this scarf is Yarn Bee Italia Bulky.  I lost the wrapper, so I don't recall the colorway.

This scarf is made from two yarns knit at the same time- Yarn Bee Labyrinth is fountain turquoise and Yarn Bee Sassy Girl in suzi.

This scarf is made from the yarn Yarn Bee Jewelsong in nightfire.

Thanks for looking!

35  My Batman/ Riddler tote made from two recycled t-shirts in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by drgdlg on: August 16, 2008 08:32:09 AM
I started on this Batman tote a long while ago, and just decided to pull it out and finally finish it!  I think it will wind up being a Christmas present for my sister.  It's made from one double sided Batman/ Riddler shirt, a plain gray t-shirt, and four buttons.  The handles and lining are made of the gray shirt.

36  My First Pointy Kitty in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by drgdlg on: August 16, 2008 08:24:20 AM
This is the first pointy kitty I've made.  The fabric (since it may be hard to tell on the small pointy kitty) is blue with red polka-dotted whales.  It's now going to reside in my little girl's room (she's due in 20 days!!)
