41  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Please recommend me a pattern on: December 31, 2007 07:47:17 PM
I want to make a jacket for my son. Here are the requirements:
  • size 2T and/or bigger
  • lined
  • zip-up
  • hooded
  • waistband at the bottom (not elastic)
  • I'd like a flap that buttons over the zipper but not required
I have black corduroy and adorable transportation-themed thermal knit, and I don't want to improvise. I can adjust a little bit, for example I know how to add lining when a pattern doesn't call for it. I just would like something as close to what I want as possible, if it exists. Can you help me?

To this shirt:

For this daddy!

I haven't stenciled in a long time, I've been working more on sewing, it's so nice to be back.
What do you think, will he like it?
43  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Nightmare Before Christmas punk pants, or "who says boy clothes are boring?" on: November 16, 2007 12:00:07 PM
Nightmare Before Christmas punk pants

Happy little punk

Perfecting his balance on the steps

Elastic back. See the belt loops? They're narrow bias binding, sewn twice for symmetry.

Here's the front-ish

close-up of the pocket WITH CHAIN, HECK YES.

Another way to wear the chain - it's 10", not includig the clips, and each belt loop has a jump ring sewn into it so you can clip the chain anywhere.

The top of the front. It's non-elastic, and has a real (non-functional) fly. I fell in love with that button. It's hard to see, but it's a star inside a circle, and between the star's points is open.

Two of the belt loops, and a better view of the pocket.

Side view of the leg while flat.

My favorite thing I've ever made, hands down. They took ages to make because I just kept adding little details. I love them, and I will bawl when he outgrows them.
44  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / More pants, Sock Monkey pants added! on: November 06, 2007 09:13:29 AM
Kids can get away with so much fashionwise that adults can't. I live vicariously through my son.
Here are the sock monkey pants instead of making a new thread:

Cuff - these are lined completely for warmth.

both cuffs. It's a yummy chocolatey brown knit

Made them for my son, but my niece fit them better.

Don't worry, she didn't step on him.

She is HARD to photograph.

Had to get the little man in here somehow.

awesome shoes

Here's the story: I wanted to enter it in etsy's costumecon, but I couldn't get it finished in time. I was sooo mad. Then when I checked the storque, GUESS WHAT WON THE KIDS' CATEGORY?!
Okay she definitely did a better job than me and used all new materials, but mine's more accurate to the book *pout*
46  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Talentless, but creative - Need your help. on: October 11, 2007 09:48:42 AM
I want a simple drawing so I can make it into a screen to print lactivism onesies for my etsy store. But I can't draw what I want. I've tried. I really have.
I'm not sure if I should post what I want here or wait to see if there's interest. I need someone to draw it for me. I can't pay anyone, because I don't know that it will sell (newer shop, very little exposure so far) and I honestly don't have any money. I would put artist credit in the listing, and a link to your site or blog or store.

Is this inappropriate? In the wrong forum? Is anyone interested?
47  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Little Man's ring bearer tux (too many pix!) on: September 27, 2007 08:15:00 AM
Kalten was my friend's ringbearer on the 15th. He stole the show.

This shirt started out as a 4/5. I cut the sleeves off, resized them, took it in, and reattached the sleeves. I left the original length because I wanted it to stay tucked in. I might romperify it and take him to church in it.

I made the tie with this tutorial, except I left off the long tying part. I just made it short, tied it, and sewed it directly to the shirt (in the car on the way to the wedding).

See? An actual tie!

Tux pants made from an 88 cent remnant.

I added the satin stripe down the legs.

The color's off, it actually looks good IRL  Undecided

The whole outfit, nice and blurry.

Waiting to go in. His adorable shiny shoes didn't fit him anymore. I was so sad.

Fixing his tie. I ended up taking the socks off because they didn't match, and Rachel loves bare baby feet anyway. She says they remind her of water balloons.

Vanity shot!

I carried him down the aisle  Tongue I was going to decorate a wagon or stroller and the flower girl was going to take him down the aisle but it didn't get done so I had to Sad

I'm so mad I didn't get a better picture of the pillow I made. I freehand machine embroidered "Rachel Brian 2007" on the white side ("Rachel" parallel to one side, it led straight into "Brian" around the corner parallel to the next side, and "2007" at the bottom, diagonal to the corner) and in the middle I embroidered two silver rings (their rings aren't gold, his is some indestructible metal and I don't know what hers is) by hand. The other side is burgundy like his tie. Then I attached elastic to go around Kalten's wrist so he couldn't throw it on the floor.
48  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / We need some more BOY up in here! on: September 26, 2007 02:20:55 PM
Lined dino pants!


Cuffed or uncuffed.

Love this gray/white jungley print.

Reverses to gray corduroy.


These are so fun. They can be worn four different ways. The pocket can go in the front or back.
Sorry no action shots, they're not for the little man. Not my little man, anyway.
49  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Farewell belts - now residing in Japan. on: September 04, 2007 09:07:11 AM

My former foreign exchange student came to visit, and she brought her boyfriend. She stayed with me my senior year, which was... OMG SEVEN YEARS AGO!?  Shocked
Anyway I showed her my craftster gallery about a year or so ago, and she liked my owl belt. I told her if she came to visit I'd make her one. She did, and I did. The black/red one is for her bf. I don't have any cool ribbon for boys other than skulls and he didn't seem the skully type to me.


I made them these tins to go with the belts. Cut the letters out of paper and ran them through the sticker machine, and stuck them on.

On the inside of his, I put a star made from the paper I used on her name. On the inside of hers, I put a heart made from the paper I used on his name. Cute if they stay together, but not a painful reminder of the other if they break up.

The papers I used, since they're not so easy to see in the pictures.

Belts in the tins

I gave them to them when we drove them to the bus.  Cry
50  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Arr is for pirate! on: September 04, 2007 07:31:08 AM

My family is huge and we get together all the time. A few years ago my uncle decided we should have a themed Labor day camping trip, and it stuck. So this year I asked my mom to ask him what the theme is so I'd have time to prepare. She said "he said you're in charge." So we had a pirate party.
Here's Kalten's outfit. I took these pictures after washing. It didn't fray as much as I hoped. Guess I forgot a close-up of the shirt. It's light blue flannel applique with just a straight machine stitch around the insides of the letters. The pirate was from a flannel print with zig-zag stitch. The dot to the i and the exclamation point are skull and crossbones buttons.


Parrot on his shoulder!

LOVE these fringey pants. Finished them as we were pulling up to the campsite.

The little pirate himself (the smallest blank shirt I had was a 2/4 so it'll fit for a while.)

"You GOT me, uncle Scotty!"

He's turning into a ham for the camera


His pirate name: Trusty Stolen Beard. I was Old Chunk Gullet. We all got names!

I spent so much time on his outfit that I just glued some plastic necklace and gold coin trim from Wal-mart to a gray t-shirt for myself and went as a treasure "chest" and DH wore a black skull bandana.
