1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Holiday! It would be, it would be so nice! (2 dresses and a skirt) on: September 19, 2007 04:56:33 AM
One more week and I got me a ticket to the tropics... of course the muppet needs her some new dresses for the local perma-summer.

Hawaii Dress, fabric by cheapthreads

Mickey Mouse dress (or in toddler vocab, mickeymouseclubhouse dress), fabric 2/meter local store

Dalmatian skirt + stencil shirt, fabric by http://www.cranstonvillage.com

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Birthday handouts at preschool. on: September 02, 2007 01:35:30 PM
My daughter is turning 3 soon, and is celebrating it at school. It's customary to pass out a treat to the other kids, generally little baggies with candies and a small thing like a pencil or a little toy.

However I disagree with giving the kids candy all the time, but I don't want to become the "apple mom  Roll Eyes " either. So I'm stumped for ideas. I have about 15 favors to hand out and was thinking about giving home made  cookies and perhaps these heart shaped crayons, but maybe somebody else has a better idea.
There are also 2 teachers I don't want to forget.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dalmatian tee, tree trunk, slayer shirts on: August 29, 2007 05:45:04 AM

One of the dogs that lends itself perfectly for high contrast black and white subject: The Dalmatian! It's a shirt for my daughter to go with a skirt in the fabric shown under it.

My hands are crampy from cutting all the dots out but the result was better than I expected (I messed up a few projects lately so this was a positive outcome)

New as of today:

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Why pay top dollar for themed underwear? on: August 26, 2007 06:02:32 AM
When you can create them yourself! My daughter is much like any 3 year old, fan of Dora the Explorer and tends to have a pavlov response to all things princess, but I feel underwear in that department is
a) expensive
b) crappy quality
c) everybody has them (Seriously, I take care of 3 girls and I actually put initials in their stuff)

So I figured, why not get pictures of her favorite books and print iron ons, and put them on quality underwear (which is cheaper cause you're not paying for trademark).

Make optimum use of your sheet

I got 13 6.5X6.5 cm circles on 1 A4.

Iron your butt off

Yes the top left one is #%$# up. I didn't think and just ironed over the cloth direct on the patch.
And yes that's her toy iron and she plays pretend iron-on, it keeps her away from my hot hot iron.


Yeah the color of the underwear shines through but I don't mind. (I was tempted to put the mole pic on the back of the knicker  Tongue )

Matching tops
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / What dad can say no to his girl? Hot pink doll closet. on: August 06, 2007 04:20:18 AM
It's strange I wasn't able to find anything suitable in the store, but why go store bought when you can create something to your own specifications? Sure you need to keep the kid away from daddy cursing away at the MDF  Cheesy but afterwards you'll have the happiest little kid on the planet.

With any luck the bed will be painted with the remainder of the pink paint.

For  scale

I'm not too happy with the makeshift hangers (bended electronic wire), but I plan on making some from those hook screws and 3.5 inches of round wood.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pirates dress (Now with matching doll) on: July 17, 2007 07:37:02 AM
I got this idea from a "metal clothes for kids" site, but it was a skirt to put over a onesie, so we went to search for a pattern that would suit this idea well.

What we (my mom and I) used was a Minnie Mouse model from a costume patterns book, with red satin bow & trimming. I thought the poofy sleeves and contrasting collar would be over the top but it works pretty well. And if you're 2 years old, there's no such thing as over the top.

It does get a lot of double takes since it's a very preppy looking dress but the skirt is made with

Skull fabric  Grin I can't count the number of shocked olded ladies I've encountered. I can't wait to get black lacquer shoes to match. I've tried to find red shoes, but they're all for older girls  Undecided
