1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Neon/black upcycled toddler dress :) on: June 08, 2012 11:37:20 AM
Parker test fitting cousin Kaleah's new upcylced dress! lol he wasn't sure what to think of it at first, he ran around for a while, twirled twice & then demanded I take it off, lol.  She's a tiny bit bigger then him so it should fit great this summer & again next summer as a tunic.  I love how this turned out & I know her mama is going to be super excited. 

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Upcycled Ruffle Shorties From Leggings with Tutorial Link on: May 18, 2012 09:54:04 AM
A few years ago a friend of mine asked me if could make her some Matilda Jane style shorties.  She loves them but they are not cheap & the sell out fast.  So the last few years I have made some from knit fabric, but she has also had me make some of her favorite Gymboree leggings into them as well (She is in Las Vegas & dont need full length ones most of the year). So I finally finished up a bunch for her this year & even got around to making the twins some!!! I also put a tutorial on my blog http://everythingyourmamamade.com/2012/05/16/upcycled-ruffle-shorties-from-leggings-with-tutorial/

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Quick & Easy Cut Off Shorts & Apron with Tutorial Links! on: May 18, 2012 09:46:16 AM
Here is 2 of my recent upcycle projects.  

A quick & easy way to get EVEN cut off shorts that don't have a million strings & or get shorter every time you wash them Smiley.  I was so frustrated with the lack of plain jean shorts in stores for my girls this year that I will be making a bunch more of these.  The best part is it works for girls & boys and is a great way to get longer life out of pants that have had the knees blown out!  There is a full detailed photo tutorial on my blog here... http://everythingyourmamamade.com/2012/05/15/quick-easy-cut-off-shorts/

THEN I upcycled the legs with the holey knees into these cute half aprons & made a tutorial for that too Smiley http://everythingyourmamamade.com/2012/05/15/upcycled-jean-half-apron-with-tutorial/

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Crocheted clothes for Lalaloopsy doll - updated with shoe pattern on: December 26, 2011 12:55:44 PM
OMG THESE ARE AMAZING!!!!  My twins LOVE these dolls but the selection of additional clothes is limited & I don't really have the desire to try & sew them.  I may have to give this a try! 
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / 3 Pirates & a Baby Parrot! w/ Tutorial Link on: November 02, 2011 12:56:31 AM
SO I have been crazy busy but was proud to say that I made everything but Zanders black pants Smiley.  Well that & the 'ship' stroller cover, a friend already made it so we just borrowed it instead of making another.  I didn't think I could beat last years costumes but I think I may have.  The twins costumes are from a pattern bundle on you can make this.  Zanders shirt was a horrible big 3 pattern with the vest & boot covers self drafted & Parker's parrot was all self drafted using a penguin tutorial I found as a starting point of sorts.

I was shocked to find only a few parrot costumes to buy (and they were yucky!) and no patterns???  It's a parrot, everyone kept saying they looked for one for their little ones & couldn't find one so went with something else.  I am super excited with how it turned out & posted a mini tute on my blog because I spent hours looking & barely found anything!  Enough talk PICTURE TIME!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddller Dress to Little Girls Skirt! With Tutorial Link! on: October 29, 2011 05:17:31 PM
A friend recently asked if I could turn a 5t gymboree dress into a size 5/6 skirt for her older daughter.  She had already bought her younger daughter a size 2 dress but her oldest was just a little too tall for the dress.  So a skirt it became!  This is also a great way to turn dresses that have stained tops into skirts or dresses they have outgrown into a skirt they can continue to wear.

This is the finally product & I think it turned out cute, I can't wait to get a picture of her daughter in it, I loved the embroidery work & the original dress!

This is what the original dress looked like before I cut into it.

I actually created a tutorial for it here: http://everythingyourmamamade.com/2011/10/27/little-girls-dress-to-bigger-girls-skirt-mini-tutorial/
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Twin Pirates :) on: October 29, 2011 05:11:10 PM
These are the costumes I made for my 4yr old twin girls this year Smiley.  They love them & I love them so it's a win-win right?

I have the pattern info & some more pictures on my blog.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: learning to sew, first time following a pattern *Emmeline Apron* on: March 10, 2011 03:09:46 PM
I LOVE the Emmeline apron pattern Smiley (its from 'Sew Liberated' for those of you wondering).  This is one of my favorite apron patterns & has become my go too Smiley. Yours turned out GREAT I love the fabric & the colors you choose!

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 'Natalie's Dress' Easter dresses for the twins! on: March 09, 2011 09:47:27 PM
Things have been crazy with the arrival of our newest little on last month but while my parents were visiting the newest grandbaby I got a little time to sew Smiley.  Anyway I decided to take that time to start on the twins Easter dresses if there was any hope of getting them done in time (yes I know Easter is at the end of April this year!).  Anyway I actually managed to get them completely done almost 2 months early!  Here is their mini-photo shoot... I will get better ones later... and yes Baylie thinks shes a super model!  Baylie is on the left & Carlie is on the right.

There is a ton of info including a review of the pattern in the blog post... http://everythingyourmamamade.com/2011/03/09/the-twins-natalies-dress-easter-dresses/



10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Maternity, Nursing or Regular Womens Night Gown! on: January 09, 2011 07:39:54 PM
I am currently doing a monthly challenge on my blog to motivate me as well as a lot of my friends to sew/complete at least 1 project a month!  This months theme is 'Something for YOU!' so this is my something for ME!  

With my due date fast approaching I decided it was time to make some nursing friendly nightwear!  I had tried out Megan Nielsens Maternity Wrap Top and really like it, and honestly like all of her maternity/nursing patterns they look and fit great when not prego too!  So I decided to order her 3 nursing friendly .pdf patterns Perfect Nursing & Maternity Top, Pina Gathered Dress or Top & Nursing & Maternity Lingerie Set.  I have only made up 1 of the 3 so far, but all 3 are great for Maternity, Nursing & Regular wear, so a very versatile pattern you can get a lot of use out of.
So this week I tackled the Nursing & Maternity Lingerie Set.  There is a full review of the pattern on my blog (link in my siggy)

I am SO happy with how this turned out and I plan to make a bunch more for nursing & afterward too! Its not a super supportive sleep bra but it is comfy & gets the job done!  For photo purposes I did put a regular bra on under it but I am very happy wearing it at home without.  For maternity wear sizing I am 36w3ds along in this picture I normally wear size S/M in maternity tops & this is a size L and I still have an okay amount of extra fabric in the belly area.  Considering the very limited amount of maternity & nursing patterns available as well as the cost of buying any RTW (Ready To Wear) maternity or nursing clothing new and even used 2nd hand; this pattern, even with its few little finky issues, is totally worth the $5!
