1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: TUTORIAL LIST [update in progress... currently up to SEPTEMBER 2009] on: March 06, 2012 01:14:11 PM
Hi!  Just wondering when this list might be updated again??  Sept 2009 was 2.5 years ago...
I love the wealth of information found here, and I'm just impatient for more! Smiley

Thanks for the positive feedback! I almost thought of changing my name to AJ and keeping it for myself. Instead, I'm going to make another one for me and try to tweak the design a bit. Put something in the bottom for reinforcement (I've heard cardboard or vinyl placemats are good??) and add another pocket.

A friend asked me to make her a tote for a baby shower she was attending. She asked me to include an interior pocket. Now, I'd only made 2 other small totes for my daughters. And I'd never done a pocket. I'm not sure if I did it "right" or not, but I was really happy with how it turned out!

PS I also just got an embroidery machine and I've been monogramming *everything* LOL

Try posting in the "Sewing for Kids: Discussion and Questions" forum. 
I know I have seen this book mentioned many times around the blogosphere, but haven't used it myself sorry. Maybe someone in the above mentioned forum can help.
Good Luck!

That is so beautiful! It looks quite difficult for my novice skills, but my 4yo would "just die" for something like that!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Well I *thought* I was being original!! on: October 28, 2010 11:49:35 AM
Literally the day after I started on the skirts (which I thought was an original idea), I saw this tutorial http://sewing.craftgossip.com/tutorial-cinched-and-layered-skirt-for-little-girls/2010/10/24/ over on craftgossip. Although my construction was a little different, it's basically the same idea...

So I finished the skirts up last night and did the pumpkin applique on the shirts.  My first try with applique and I think it turned out great! But why did I have to try something *round* for my first try?!

In hindsight, I wish I'd used orange and brown rather than orange and black. Then I could extend the use throughout the fall. Ah well.

C/C always welcome!

I have two ideas for the green outfit. Do you have any of the floral left? You could make a yo-yo to sew on the onesie but then they can't use it with other outfits so my second suggestion is, what if you added criss cross straps that button on the front?

Actually I had 2 strips about 2" x 8" left over. I tried making a yo-yo, but it turned out a no-no.  Cheesy
I've never made them before, and the circle was just too darn small to do anything with.  Now I have one strip about 2" x 8" left over. Not enough to do much with. I would go and just buy another of the green fabric FQ, but it was totally in a bundle so I can't get it as a single. Ah well.  Maybe I can find a nice coordinating ribbon or something to jazz it up.
