1  Toddler Pants out of Adult pants! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by princessaimee on: March 08, 2011 08:14:36 AM
I found this tutorial online and loved the idea: http://thismamamakesstuff.com/tutorial-slim-slack-for-boys/

So I went to Goodwill and found two pairs of pants for about $6 total.  The first pair I got are a very lightweight corduroy with pineapples embroidered on them:

Here's the result! The only thing different on this pair of pants, is that instead of sewing the elastic in the back waistband in each side seam, I sewed it in one side seam,and put a buttonhole in the waistband near the other side seam, and used that elastic that has buttonholes in it, so it makes the pants adjustable. (did that make sense?)

The second pair is a brown and white stripe.  I was looking for seersucker but this was the closest I got:

This time I widened the legs so they are more straight leg:

I love that I get unique pants for just a few dollars!!

2  Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat in Halloween Costumes by princessaimee on: November 03, 2010 06:13:50 PM
My son's favorite character is George, so of course he needed to be him!  I made his costume from Simplicity's 2506, a basic costume suit and hood.  I modified the hood face opening to look more like George's.  I bought the red tshirt, cut the sleeves and length short, and embroidered the lettering.  I used tan felt to make the hands, feet and ears, it worked well to make the feet sit on top of his shoes (more functional for a 2 year old!)

Looking in the mirror for the first time:

With his Daddy...no real making of this costume, just the hat, so my submission is just little Georgie.  But totally cute, just the same!

And a kiss, monkey to monkey:

Vote for George!

3  Drake's Felt Name Book (image insane!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by princessaimee on: July 27, 2009 06:36:09 AM
I was incredibly inspired by this name book I found on here a few months ago.  I loved the level of detail and color choices, and decided to make one for my son who will be 1 in a few months!! 

Here's the inspiration:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281256.0

And here's my result:

Thanks for looking!
