1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddler Pants out of Adult pants! 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  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat 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  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / decoupaging photos question on: February 19, 2010 12:58:35 PM
I'm trying to repurpose a board book.  I've painted all the pages, and now am trying to decoupage photos on each page.

I got all my photos printed at the same time, same finish, paper, etc. However, on about half of the photos, the decoupage medium peeled off completely after it was totally dry! Weird how some stayed in place just fine, and the others the medium woulnd't stick to the photo finish. (all the photos stuck to the book I am decoupaging, it's just the top coat layer that didn't stick)

Are there any tips out there for decoupaging photos? I'd hate to have to go color copy them all, since I just paid to have the printed.

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Drake's Felt Name Book (image insane!) 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!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / No corner holes trick for squares? on: April 06, 2009 07:05:19 PM
I saw this trick online somewhere a while ago and can't find it again.  Anyone know? The trick had to do with dc three times in the corner, each time picking up a different loop on the row below....


6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter Basket Liner with Name on: April 06, 2009 08:27:04 AM

Thanks for looking!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crocheting clothing- general ? on: January 21, 2009 12:37:42 PM
I made up a REALLY easy sweater for my 4 month old....just two T shaped pieces stitched together.  It turned out really cute, but it stretched a bunch when I put it on him. 

So, how do you make clothing that won't stretch out so much?
