4  Twisty Rosettes Top and Leggings in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Shakespear on: June 23, 2010 10:01:19 AM
Here's a fun upcycled outfit I made for my wee chickadee (and even though she has a fairly strict ONLY PINK CLOTHES policy, she actually likes this outfit...Huzzah!)

It's just a store bought shirt with the twisty rosettes and stems added.  And then the leggings are made from a t-shirt.  I love making leggings out of shirts since you can cut the pants out on the hem of the shirt and then have a professional looking hem.  So easy!

And then here's a close-up of the rosettes...

6  Clothes for my Wee Chickadee in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Shakespear on: May 11, 2009 08:10:07 AM
Wee Chickadee's Easter dress.....

(photos made possible by Laffy Taffy)

For the next dress like this, I made the waist band more narrow.  I think this one is a bit wide. But I haven't snapped a pic of that one yet.

Here's some of those baby legs that are so popular.  But I couldn't find long enough socks, so I took some striped socks and flowered ones, cut them up and alternated them....

Some appliqued tops...

And, why not, eh?  I'll throw in her cute little red riding hood costume from last year....

(I was the granny and her daddy was the woodsman. Smiley

Hope you enjoyed my projects!  Thanks for lookin'.

7  A tulip, a cupcake and a monster! Oh my! Behold some applique silliness... in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Shakespear on: October 31, 2008 11:10:06 PM
I have a deep and abiding love for wonderunder.


Ours is a magical relationship full of heat and passion. 


I picked up a couple knit tees from Wal-mart for $3 and made these sweet little babydoll tops for my eensy beensy girl.  Then I added some fun appliqus.  Her striped leg warmers are also made from a knit tee and are made pretty much the same way as babylegs.  Except I cut out the fabric for the tubes along the hem so (woot woot!) I dont have to hem them(the babydoll tops are cut out the same way, along the hem).  Then I add the cuff to the top.

I appliqud the monster to my little boys tee for his birthday.  It was a HUGE hit!  As we were mixing his birthday cake up, he wiggled his belly around in front of the bowl and in a gruff voice, said, My monster is hungry!  hahahaha!

I couldn't resist adding the grumpy shot.  Do you think she was tired of me trying to get a cute picture of her?  hahahaha!

8  A Monster, Robot, Burping Alien and a....Pear?? Applique Fun in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Shakespear on: July 03, 2008 09:21:42 AM
Lately I've been doing some fun appliques on tees. 

I gave this monster one to my 4 yo to wear on his birthday.  He LOVED it.  When he helped me make his cake he shook his belly around near the bowl while making munching sounds and said, "My monster is HUNGRY!" heh heh

(oh, and I got the idea for this tee from someone on etsy...erm...If I had time I'd give a link to give them credit....I'll have to do that later)

He also got this one for his bday(we're big fans of robots).

It's hard to see his zig zag mouth in the pics...

It's amazing how wrinkled a shirt gets when it's wadded up and squished into a drawer.  Tongue

This belching alien was for my oldest to wear on his birthday...

And here is a wee pear shirt for my wee lass...

All of the appliques were knit except for the pear.  It was just cotton.  And I didn't use a satin stitch (oh! I did for the alien's belch though).  I just stitched around them with a straight stitch, sometimes more than once and with lines that crossed over each other....hmmm.  I hope that makes sense. 

And I used Wonder-under.  I lurve Wonder-under.  A lot.

If you have any questions, go ahead....

throw them at me!  Grin

9  Polka Dotted Chickadee Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Shakespear on: July 01, 2008 09:26:16 AM
Here's another dress I made for my chickadee for her birthday....

It's simply a shirred dress with wide shirred straps that look like sleeves.

The yellow fabric is from a thrifted $2 sheet.   When I bought it, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it.  But then I threw it into a pile of fabric and it landed next the this red polka dot.  "OOOOOH!" I thought.  "I liiiiiike that."   

And I wanted to put a bird on it, but then that turned into 3. 

At first, I wasn't sure about it.  But it's grown on me. 

And because I love any excuse to make a matching kansashi (sp??) headband for her...

The headband itself is shirred in the back. 

Questions and lavishing praise...oops....eh, I mean COMMENTS are more than welcome.  Grin

I made my sweet pea a super-girly, shirred, tiered, patchwork shabby chic birthday dress. 

I also made her a matching headband and itty bitty bracelet.  What can I say?  After having 3 boys, I'm having a little bit of fun with this girly stuff...

Enjoying her first happy meal at the park...

oooh!  presents!

Thanks for looking! Smiley
