I LOVE the boot one- I think it is fabulous how you used the contrasting fabric for the sleeves.  Great job!!!

vegbee, will you marry me?   Wink Cheesy  Shocked

(Okay, so I know that comes across as WAY creepy- never fear: 1) I'm totally happily married already and 2) I'm marrying Bono next, anyway.)  Wink

I am always so enamored of your projects.  (I especially love your jackets, BTW)

Nice work- I've been meaning to make some of these for myself, once I figure out where I put the fabric I was wanting to use for them.  (Of course, I've been meaning to do this for a year, so we'll see if I ever get to them.)

I'll have to see if I can find some decent fabric to make some for DD.

Thanks for sharing.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Laughing Cow Cheese Boxes on: April 13, 2008 09:22:13 AM
I did a google search and found a tute for reusing these boxes as gift packaging.  I have tons, and gave a bunch to DD's preschool, too.  This might be a good reuse for mine.

Here's the tute:

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Help with uber-picky kid. on: April 06, 2008 05:50:02 PM
Right now my 4yo DD is about as picky as they come.  She is almost completely off fruits and veggies (not good for a non-meat-eater.)  It is very frustrating as she used to eat well; I'm afraid she is starting to take after DH, who rarely eats vegetables and never eats fruit.

The one thing she will eat regularly is rice and black beans.  I can get her to eat Smuckers Natural PB, although she complains that it makes her mouth dry.  She loves yogurt, cheese, cream cheese- but not string cheese.  She will eat bananas sometimes, and strawberries (fresh, whole) only if they come with whipped cream. Apples are okay if they are peeled and served with cinnamon sugar.  (I think it is more of a texture thing than anything, this picky-ness of hers.)

I can't get her to eat hummus or other colored beans or peas or green beans or lettuce or  peppers or cucumbers or plums or any of the tasty things she used to eat.  She won't even eat blueberries anymore, and two summers ago, I couldn't get her to STOP eating them.  She would plow through a pint of them by herself in two days.

So if you are still here, give me your best (tested preferred) kid-friendly vegetarian foods.  I'm trying to work on polenta toast and quinoa with her right now, and seeing if I can get her to try salsa again.  She does like tomato sauce a lot, so that is a start, at least.

Oh, my, I LOVE that expression.  That is one angry little guy-  he is fierce and I definitely wouldn't mess with him if I were you.  Precious!

Oh, and the pants (don't you love how are kids are generally the focus?  What is that?  Like they are all cute and adorable or something.... Anyway...)   Wink  Love the pants- I have been meaning to make some for my little one, too.  I found some skull bandanas that she will love.

Terrific- I especially love the pink fabric!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Two dresses for two little girls on: August 18, 2007 07:23:40 AM
First, adorable.  Both the dresses and the girls.

Second, I tried shirring for the first time last week using advice from a couple tuts here.  It was actually easy-peasey.  I know it seems daunting, but it is literally just a matter of putting elastic thread in your bobbin only and sewing away.  You can either mark out your lines with a disappearing fabric ink pen or you can figure it out another way, but it really is that simple. 

I highly recommend just doing a search for "shirring" here and reading what others have to say.  There is a link to amity somewhere that gives detailed instructions on how to make a shirred dress.  I think the hardest part is deciding how much fabric to use....

If you do give it a go, good luck, and good work on the dresses you already made- you're right, the fabric is very cute!

Your a genius, this is adorable! Did you just cut them into strips, or did you go fancy on us and sew the edges too:)?

Oh, and like I have said before your daughter is one os the cutest little girls I have ever seen. I love the shy pose!

LOL, ME< sew the edges???  You are too funny.  I am the Queen of Hates-hems.  I certainly didn't sew the edges.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Board shorts for the surfer girl on: August 14, 2007 09:45:48 AM
We're going to the shore for vaca. soon, and I had a pair of board shorts that haven't fit me in years due to birth of said surfer girl.

Reconned them into these- should have been a 20 minute project, but unfortunately I don't learn from my mistakes and drafted the pattern from a pair of stretchy shorts, so it took me several hours to rethink, redesign, and redo to make them fit.

Doing the hula:



Front detail, ties not tied (sorry, the shot I took with them tied didn't take- wonky camera needs to be replaced:)

Just chiming in to say I have admired your work in the past, and you certainly haven't let me down with this batch.

Your daughters are gorgeous- they should be models.  The pictures look professional, for that matter.  (I always get the head tilted to the side along with the not-interested-in-actually-looking-at-you-no-matter-how-many-times-you-ask face.)
