31  Ill-fitting snap-up tee to cute stripey pants (w/mini tut) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dooney on: September 22, 2009 01:09:41 PM

Terrible picture! He refused to model and went into the disastrous toy room instead.

I liked this shirt but the sleeves were too big and the length was too short.

Cut off the sleeves and the collar

Cut up the middle & sew each half into a tube.

Put one tube inside the other, right sides facing, and sew the curve. Attach the collar as the waistband.

The closing can go anywhere, I thought this looked best on the side.

Here's the back.
They're kind of girly and almost too short already.
I don't think we'll keep them, but I was pretty pleased with my 15 minutes' worth of work.
I have a tonnnn more shirts like this in my "can you use this for something?" pile, but they're all girly and I have two boys.
Ah, well. There's always the craft shows.

I claim Casey1201 for
21. Blue striped knit fabric 1 yard



1 - stripes & flowers, vintage, thicker than regular cotton & feels kind of coated, maybe wallpaper fabric? L-shape, 15" x 42" plus an extra chunk on top, For simplicity's sake I'll just count it as 1/4 yard. The stripes run the short way, btw.
2 - teeny flowers in circles vintage cotton, up to yard
3 - claimed

4 - orange swirls FQ

5 through 8 - Care Bears FQs. #6 is glow-in-the-dark on the clouds and bears' tummies.
9 - I also have a whole yard of #8

10 - kid's at play flannel. The extraneous apostrophe bothers me (in the signs - not the floating bananas, I know what those are), so I need to be rid of it. Cute though. Those are little monkeys driving.

11 - blue plaid. The white stripes are pucker-y, almost like seersucker but not the whole thing. My former boss gave me a box of fabric, and I'm afraid to use any of it because we might run into each other wearing matching clothes.

12 - hearts & stripes thin cotton, up to 1 yd

13. Plaid-y fruits & flowers & ladybugs knit, up to 1 yd

14. blue upholstery-type material, short nap, snakeskin-like design, yd + (notice the back on this)
and I'm in the process of photographing/downloading/uploading more.

37  My little superheroes in Stenciling: Completed Projects by dooney on: July 07, 2009 01:02:50 PM
I made these Captain America shirts for 4th of July for my kids.

I taped off 1" stripes on the bottom half of the shirts and then used my screen instead of a brush.
Did the same with a paper star.

So I guess it's technically silkscreening, but the SS board is... kinda dead,
and also way more detail-y. I'd feel like a n00b.

(Just wanted to show off my lil guy)

My big lil guy (he's mad because I'm holding his toy bus)

Now he has the bus

He thinks he's smiling.

Tired after a long day of fighting villains.

I heat-set these and sent them for a spin in the dryer to soften them up,
but Co's amazing superpower acidy spit made the blue bleed a little into the star.
DH said I'll have to make a new one.
I laughed at him.

39  I got to make something girly! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dooney on: June 21, 2009 01:49:25 PM
I made this outfit for a friend's little girl who turned one.

It's a top and capris that can unroll down into pants.

The top is made with this tutorial - well, I went, saw the pictures, and said "oh, that's how!" and went to it.
Then I came back for measurements, since my kids are 2 and 5 months so I couldn't use them for sizing.
It's a little different, but many thanks for the tutorial!

This cord had been saved for a special occasion because there wasn't much of it.
It's varied-wale and very soft, not stiff like regular corduroy.
I made a little fake fly and added a daisy button.
Man, I should have ironed these.
But it was SO HOT, I just couldn't bear to.

Teeny butt pockets.
The wales match up with the pants, completely on accident.

Here's the cuff.
The elastic hides inside when the cuff is rolled down.

Notice how I still don't like to touch pink.
However, the pants are a little more purpley in real life.
Hope you like!
Maybe someday I'll have a little girl...

40  Riding the potty train! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dooney on: April 25, 2009 03:05:42 PM
So my son K started showing serious interest in using the potty, so we went with it. I was talking with a friend and K was nearby. He heard the phrase "potty train" and he thought that was pretty darn cool. My kid loves all things trains. I'm not sure how to explain to a 26-month-old that it's not something he gets to ride, but it's still something he reeeeally wants to do. So I made him these.

back

Some details. I had to use the blue for contrast because the orange thread I have doesn't match.

I am in love with this stitch. The trim is just knit from a t-shirt.

They have the real "big boy" fly, not that he'd ever use it. The kid must be completely naked from the waist down or he can't pee.

I want to find some better-looking underwear elastic. I think I'm going to harvest the waistbands from DH's when they wear out in, ahem, other places.

The little underwear model

I find piles like this all over my house.
