Basic black maternity pants are $37 at Target!  Boo!!!

I took a pair that I frequently wear to work (and justified this by reasoning that if I totally ruin the pants I'm not going back to work after the baby anyway!) and an old golf shirt...

cut, cut, sew sew...

and voila!  maternity pants!  

I've seen this tute-ed about a million times but have never had the courage to chop up a perfectly good pair of pants before.  The panel goes all the way around and is long because I wanted the option of over and under belly action.

I posted a tute on my blog: http://arrayanbaby.blogspot.com/2010/04/how-to-make-maternity-pants-from.html

I love maternity pants - it's the comfort of sweatpants combined with the professionalism of regular pants.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Easiest Most Awesome Shower Gift EVER! on: March 24, 2010 10:47:16 PM
I HATE the hooded towels they sell in the store for babies.  They are small, thin, and you can only use them for about two months. 

But hooded towels are a must for babies and toddlers.  Big fluffy towels are always more practical and I would argue that this is one of the most useful crafty gifts you could give at a baby shower.  This is the best way to make sure that your gift gets used...A LOT!

I made this from a great tutorial over at Prudent Baby and I am 100% satisfied with the results.  I may even make some for my own house.

4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / YO! YO! YOGURT (help!) on: March 22, 2010 02:30:21 PM
I just bought this Donvier yogurt maker at the thrift store because it was $3 and I am so curious. 

Unfortunately, I can't figure out what to do with it and all the online recipes are for the high-tech electronic model, not this humble basic model. 

Does anyone here on craftster own/use this thing?  How do you use a yogurt maker?  I have just the base, the lid, jars with lids and this scoop thermometer thing.  Am I missing any parts?

What can you do with a yogurt maker?  Can you make flavored yogurt?  Can you make it nondairy or a dairy/nondairy blend?

Help would be greatly appreciated.

To answer both questions at once - I did use a pattern.  Simplicity something...I can't remember the number.  The zipper was installed as the directions directed so I dont know what the technique is called but it was easy peasy.

Thanks Stitch It Kit! 

This is a jazzed up pillow case using the patterns from Jenny Hart's Stitch It Kit.  "moe moe" is sleep in Hawaiian so I would consider this perfectly customized for my Oahu dwelling sister-in-law!

I made this make up bag for my older sister.  Shes a huge Brewers fan and bought me this Tshirt for family game night.  She mentioned how much she liked the design but ended up getting a different Tee for herself. 

Soo, come christmas time I decided to return the favor (the shirt shrunk a little anyway...or maybe I grew...) and repurposed it into this bag.  I used carebears cotton for the lining - a little throw back to the days of growing up together!

Here's a view of the original shirt at Miller Park!  Yay Brew Crew!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / U Hawaii footed pants and jacket recon! on: March 11, 2010 11:07:09 PM

My mom got me this University of Hawaii Manoa athletics fleece and I couldn't wait to make something - ANYTHING!

The baby's feet have been cold in the morning so I started with this pair of footed pants. 

I love the way they turned out and he's been using them all the time, but next time I am going to make the leg longer.  I measured where I was going to put the foot from the waist and I should have just plopped that foot anywhere since I have the ankle elastic to hold it in place.  Does that make sense to anyone else?

I added a little butt panel to accommodate his big ole cloth nite-dipe.  Tonight I found a little hole working it's way into the crotch already.  REINFORCE THOSE SEAMS, PEOPLE!

With the left over fleece and a cape thing from H&M, I made this jacket.  I LOVE IT!  Raglan sleeves and a roomy hood.  The buttons are all salvaged from the original cape so I didn't have to fuss with any of that - thank God.
Honestly, this jacket was so simple to put together that I almost thought I was doing something wrong!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / T-shirt Reconstruction into Raglan sleeve top on: February 17, 2010 02:33:34 PM
I used Vegbees tute from her blog: http://indietutes.blogspot.com/, the tute for the collar with especially helpful.

This is an adult S/M size T-shirt reconed into a child's size 3/4 short-raglan sleeve top.  The patten was eyeballed so I think the shoulders might not be roomy enough (ie. proportionate to the rest of the body) next time I will add more volume to the shoulder socket. 

All in all - I'm happy  Wink

Here is the original view:
