1  look what I made with a small curtain in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by bethymay on: July 31, 2010 04:18:36 PM
I was at the thrift store the other day and found a sheet, a pillow case and a small kitchen curtain. they are all ventage faberic.

well I attacked the yellow kitchen curtain first.

I was able to make a complete outfit for Kara with it. The curtain had this cute embroidored insert and I used it to make her a dress. It is a simple shirred dress without straps. I had enough material left over to make bloomers, a hat, and a headband with a flower.

hope you like it.

I found this cute tweety bird fabric at Walmart in there discount section. it was only $2.00 a yard. I used about 1/4 yard and some bias tape that cost $1.44. the bloomers are made of another discount find that cost me $1.00 a yard. all together this dress cost about $2.75 to make.

this is my youngest son helping his sissy to model her new dress.

3  the sunny day dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by bethymay on: June 08, 2010 02:46:10 PM
hello fellow crafters,

I wanted to wait  and show off all the different things that I have made over the last few weeks all at once but sadly I can't show off. almost everything that I have made was in the wash that had a blue ink pen in it. all my hard work down the drain   Sad

oh well. just glad I hadn't spent a bunch of money on fabric Smiley

to make me feel better I went and got some really cheap but cute fabric from walmart to replace what was lost. when I saw this sunny fabric I knew how I wanted to use it.

it is a holter top dress with shirring on the back and matching bloomers.

here is an image of the back

the matching bloomers

Here is a close up of the fabric

thanks for looking c&c always welcome

5  patchwork recon of a tank for a 4 week old (updated with bloomers) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by bethymay on: April 23, 2010 07:40:46 AM
this is a patchwork dress that I am working on for my four week old little girl. with her being in the 2% of her weight compared to other babies her age, I can't find many things that will fit her. this has sent me on a sewing spree. which is hard to do with no extra money and no fabric store near by.

this is the third dress I have made her. right now I am working on a pair of bloomers to match. let me know what you think.

here is the dress with my first attempt at bloomers to match. baby just woke up from her nap and wanted to be fed more then model.

6  A few dresses. in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by bethymay on: April 22, 2010 11:20:00 AM
I just had my little girl four weeks ago. she is small even for a newborn and it is hard to find clothing to fit her. I didn't want to spend a huge amount of money on clothing that she will outgrow in a few weeks/months so I decided to make a few things for her.

the first one is a onsie that I attached a skirt too. I added a ribbon around the waist and then sewed a button in the waist line to help tie the whole thing together.

here is my little one wearing it.

with this one I was inspired by the posts of some of the other crafty crafters on here. where they would take a skirt for an older child and cut it down to make a dress for a toddler. well seeing as my little one is so small (she weighs less then 7 lbs. at a month) I didn't see as how I would be able to find a skirt to fit my needs. so I drafted up a pattern that would relay the same style. this is my first attempt at drafting a pattern and there are a lot of techical errors on the dress. but she isn't old enough to cretique yet so I'm not sweating the small stuff. OK enough words here she is in her dress.

what do yall think? cc is always helpful.
