1451  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: White boots - retro or tacky?? on: July 11, 2005 04:48:22 PM
While I am not a fan of white boots, I think done right, they will look great.

Re the boyfriend's input, my own dh says boots that go to the knee, or at least a ways over the ankle, are f___-me boots...While I am not letting it influence my wearing them, I am now aware that a certain slice of the male population has a very narrow view of what they mean. And yes, I am busy re-educating him, lol!

There's a Scarlet Pimpernel from the 80's??? How come I never heard of it before?? *off to scan Blockbuster weekly shelves*

I only ever saw a version from like the 30's or something, and LOVED it, and loved the book even more!

Oh, and LOVE the label you made! So cool!

Love the shirt, and want to make it, asap....quick question, though...the fabric is jersey, or woven? Looks jersey, but I would love to make with woven, and wonder if I could do it using your tut...

TIA!

I love love love this! Even the colors are so perfect! I don't suppose you could do a tut? Even a written one?

Oh, and I totally know the husband thing..I just finished making a wrap top, made by tracing another one I like and lengthening it a little, and it looks awesome, and all he can say is he hates those kinds of tops, they look granny...:rolleyes:

Those bands were really popular last winter here in Sydney, for covering up the gap between the low rise jeans, and the little baby tee, and they are really simple to make.

You just basically make a large tube of jersey, or similar knit, about 8 inches wide, and long enough to go around your waist, and then close it up in a circle.

Im no mom, but I am an aunt and I care just as much as you all do--
couldnt you just put some clorox disinfectant wipes in your diaper bag? get a cart while youre in the parking lot, so you can keep the kiddo in the car while you give it a wipe-off.


Cause who wants their kid sucking on clorox residue?? LOL That would work great for an older kid who touches everything, and then sticks his fingers up his nose, and in his mouth, etc, but for a baby who gnaws on everything with his mouth, it isn't really the right thing, unless you could rinse it after disinfecting.

I made a very simple thing for my kid when he was little, but it wasn't nearly as elaborate as the one you guys are talking about...I just took fabric, cut it the width of the cart handle, made it big enough to wrap and velcro around the handle, and drape down to the legs of the kid, and then backed it. On the front, I sewed a strip of fabric tacked at one end, threaded LARGE wooden shapes on, tacked the other end down; tacked another strip down at one end, and made a self closing vecro loop at the other end, for attaching plastic keys, paci, whatever, and I had a couple more entertainment ideas on there, too, but it was so long ago, I can't remember that much! But it did the trick, and kept his favorite part to suck on inaccessible, as well as amusing him during the trip
