1  Wrap tops, cast covers and snuggle blankets.. Pic heavy in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by JenniesBlok on: December 23, 2008 10:18:17 AM
Here are a few things I have been working on for Christmas. I don't want to overload the board so I will post a few pics here and you can view more on my blog...
The wrap top and little pants were patterns from You Can Make This
Wrap shirt with matching cuff pants for niece..

Another wrap shirt with gauchos for a niece...

Here is my take on the "snuggie" blanket... My son loves it!!

And the last one I will post is my sons cast cover... He broke his arm last week and I didn't want the cast getting extremely dirty so I made it a cover and he loves the John Deere fabric.

There are more things I have finished over the last few weeks posted on my blog...

Love it! I was making my son's Mario costume last year and for the life of me couldn't find the hat pattern anywhere! Finally, I was at the Goodwill one day and happened to find the hat in a very rough material for older men. What did I do? Of course, I bought it, took it home, ripped the seams out, placed each piece on my scanner, printed them out, cut them out, traced pattern pieces, made my son a hat. Was a little big on him but the elastic in the back helped it out. They have some patterns similar on youcanmakethis.com

Here is his:

Love your material too! I am making one for the girls soon.

3  Child Costume: Super Mario is the Bomb! in Halloween Costumes by JenniesBlok on: November 01, 2007 01:09:50 PM
Ok so I procrastinated and didnt finish it till October 30th. But it turned out just how I wanted it. Sew cute. The pattern was made and I had to cut it a few different times to get it to fit right then had to lengthen the straps since it was cutting into him. The hat was made from a hat I found at a thrift store and cut up for a pattern. The "M" on top of the hat is felt. Cutest 18 month old walking through town! (they told me, im not just full of my son lol lol) Enjoy!

His hat looks a little wop sided but its because he wouldnt keep it on right.

4  My very own 18 month old Super Mario! Pic heavy in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by JenniesBlok on: November 01, 2007 05:41:59 AM
Ok so after procrastinating forever, it was finally finished the day before Halloween. I had to work with the overall pattern since it didnt do right. (had to rip seams 3 times and re sew it  Angry) After that, the straps were not long enough and the whole thing was finished so I had to add a piece to the straps. Anyway, the hat was made from a hat I found at a thrift store and cut up for the pattern. It looks a little wonky on his head since he would not leave it still for me to take a pic so it would look right. He did keep the gloves on the whole night! Amazing!! Ok, enough babble on to the pics...Costume on the floor..

He wouldnt stand up for me to take a pic, he wanted to run towards me so hes sitting on the counter.

Daddy holding him so we could try to get a smile.
Well, he was the cutest one there. Everyone was saying "hey theres Mario!" Little boys couldnt get over it.
Hope you enjoy. Oh yeah, he does have on little brown boots, just like Mario. Tried to get him to say "Itsa me, Mario" but he wouldnt do it.  Cheesy

C/C welcome.

6  I made a diaper wreath! Oh how sweet it is... (img heavy) NOW with Girl wreath in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by JenniesBlok on: September 07, 2007 09:50:40 PM
Ok so I finally made the diaper wreath with Hellga's tute here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=180906.0! Thanks Hellga. I didn't line it with tulle first though and now I think maybe I should have. It is the green foam but it is smooth so I didn't do it. Anyway, it has a few toys on it and three different ribbons. I added a bow at the top and a cute little stuffed animal on the bottom holding a sign. I created the hangar on the top so when the baby is born, this can be hung on the door instead of the boring old huge bow that comes from gift shops. Oh well, take a look and tell me what you think. I plan on making another one for a girl in a week or so but would like feedback on this one first. Thanks y'all!
Laying flat on floor

The little monkey I added. This is not the card I am keeping, I have to go the florist and get the "Its a boy" card to go in it.

Close up of the bow on top, has ribbon that says its a boy.

Here is the ribbon I used to tie all my goodies onto it with, says its a boy.

Finally, the diaper wreath hanging up. (its hung on my gumball machine just to show it hung up, didn't have a nail handy lol)

So, there you have it. I had so much fun making this. Very inexpensive and not time consuming at all. As always, comments or criticism welcomed.  Grin

Now for the little girl wreath.

8  My first attempt at a tote! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by JenniesBlok on: September 04, 2007 10:41:36 AM
Ok so I attempted to make a tote. I like it although it is too big so the next will be smaller for me. I lined the outer shell with heavy weight interfacing and it still buckles, the inside is lined with light weight interfacing and is doing well. I have four pockets on the inside, one for junk, one for my cell phone, one for pens and the other is for whatever Cheesy. So here are the pics.

outside, looks a little wonky since i hung it on my cabinets and it has my junk in it

inside without my junk in it so you can see the pockets

I also made a checkbook cover for it so it would match. I love it too!


Hope you like! Comments/criticism helpful! Thanks for looking. Grin
