1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / summmmmmertime and the living is eeeeasy on: August 31, 2007 08:01:14 AM
Yes its still summer here. A shirt to go with the patchies I sns'd. Ro loved this. Partially recycled.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / First day of school outfit on: August 30, 2007 07:27:39 PM
I asked my first grader Ro to draw the rocket from the fabric on a piece of paper.  I then traced it with a fabric marker and fabric crayons to make the shirt.  Then I made some shorts to sort of go with it.  He L-O-V-E-S red white and blue things so the shorts were a hit.

Here he is his first day with his new teacher (which is the same teacher my sixth grader had for Kindy!!)

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Patchies, Pockets and Pirates on: August 30, 2007 06:47:49 PM
I've been sewing my first grader (Ro) a new pair of shorts every day this week because he has shot up and his old ones were starting to resemble hot pants.  The first two pairs are made from Charlie Rocket fabric that my friend and I got in L.A.  We made a special trip because a friend had bought the woodies fabric and I coveted it.  Then I fell in love with the patchie fabric too.

Ro and I are loving these elasticated knit waistbands.  Easy, look sharp and are super comfy to wear according to Ro.

The pirate outfit started as two stripey ladies shirts from the thrift store. He and I picked them out.  Nice thick stretchy knit that had washed up nicely.  He is into pirates so it was an obvious choice.  I finished the outfit last night after he was in bed and when he tried it on the sleeves were a little on the shorter side (I used the sleeves from the shirt and they weren't very big).  Not terrible but no growing room, so this morning before the bus left I unpicked the original hem and attached a coordinating cuff.

4  COOKING / Dessert / Monster Bag Cake on: November 15, 2006 07:23:36 AM
I made my son a monster book bag for his first day of Kindy. 

His name is Stanley and he has quite a personality.  For one, his favourite food is crayons. He got banned from the kindergarten classroom for trying to eat the art supplies and now sulks in a cubby while littley is in class.

Anyway, littlely recently turned 6 and I made him a Stanley birthday cake.  All the kids from his class came to the party and instantly recognised his cake.  It was a hit.

Victoria sponge cake base, sandwiched with jam and covered in lurid green buttercream.  Even the adults had some!

Finally, here is the birthday boy wearing his birthday shirt I made him.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Newsprint chequebook cover on: February 04, 2004 08:46:46 PM
This started out life as a sheet of Japanese newsprint from a classroom project that my son Jay made.  I was all ready to chuck it when I got inspiration.

I'd like to make one or two more of these to sell.  Do you think anyone would be interested in them? If so, how much should I ask... any idea?

They are made with (duh) newsprint, contact paper and bias binding.  I want to make a change purse to match out of the ?sp? Nikkei index on the same page.

I think these would make a good guy gift... I'm always looking for something I can make men.



Oh and BTW, I have NO idea what it all says LOL I hope it isn't rude!
