1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Know where I can find... on: July 14, 2010 06:35:05 PM
hickory stripe denim?  That's engineer-type denim.  My toddler is train CRAZY and we got him a "Big Boy" patch from the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis.  (Big Boy is the largest model of steam engine to sucessfully run the rails.  The things you learn when the two year old has a new obsession...)
DH asked what I would put the patch on and I told him I'd make him a bag to put his things in.  DH was the brilliant one who thought of using the engineer denim.  Now I just need to find some.
Anyone know where I can pick some up?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / help with jammie pants! on: July 01, 2010 08:25:52 PM
Hey ladies,
I'm having a bit of trouble with some pants.  I'm not a novice sewer, but this was my first attempt at jammie pants for my two year old son.  I used the snuggle flannel from JoAnn's for the project.  They turned out great, but I'm having difficulty with the seam on the seat busting out.  So tell me, what is the best method for sewing that seam so that it remains sturdy and can stand up to the abuse a toddler will give?  Also, I'm assuming standard thread is ok for this?
I'm sort of wondering if I need to repair those that are done already with just two lines of stitches and do future pairs with a felled seam or something.
I would love some advice from some of you who have successfully done pants like this over and over.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / First attempt diaper cake on: January 20, 2007 10:59:16 PM
As the co-hostess of my friend's baby shower, we decided to try our hand at diaper cake production.  After much research (re: looking at pictures online) we bought the diapers and tried it out.  It turned out very pretty and our friend was very pleased.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / School chair back pocket **How are they after a year??-- page 3** on: July 25, 2006 05:51:09 PM
It's not exactly a crafty houseware, but there doesn't seem to be a thread for crafty schoolwares for crafty teachers...  I have been wanting pockets for the backs of the chairs in my room for a long time, but they are so expensive to buy.  So when I saw this upholstery canvas on sale at Jo-Ann's for $2.10 a yard I knew now was the time.  I'm sure that if there were other crafty teachers interested I could put together a tutorial.  They have turned out to be incredibly sturdy with the canvas and bias tape, but I don't underestimate the ability of seven year olds to tear apart anything.
Here is the finished product:

Hope you like it, I'm pretty proud that they have turned out so well.
