1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Two, two, two dresses in one! on: February 23, 2008 11:54:40 AM
I've been MIA for many reasons won't go into but here's my monkey in her spring frock:

and, voila, yet another dress when she wipes her grimy chocolate hands from eating easter candy on the first look...

Love this pattern so easy yet so many possibilities!!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Jack-o-twirl skirt complete with ball fringe! on: October 28, 2007 12:16:51 PM
Made this for Miss Monkey Mae for Halloween.  We have a huge Halloween festival in our neighborhood the Saturday before Halloween.  I've had it made for weeks but have been waiting for action shots.  Here they are:

BTW, I'm loving this online photo editing website, http://www.picnik.com/app#/home/welcome
As, you can see I've dolled them up a bit thanks to picnik.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mah Jong Anyone? on: October 22, 2007 02:48:28 PM
Here's an outfit I recently made for a design group challenge the theme being "games".  There was much gnashing of teeth because of beginner sewer mistakes...one after the other but finally it is done!  Here's Miss Monkey Mae showing it off:

I can tell you this...it'll be a while before I do this again.  Sewing for pleasure is just that...much more pleasureable!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / sewing knit and woven fabric together on: October 07, 2007 03:12:28 PM
I'm going to be making a t-shirt dress (where you cut off the bottom 2/3s or so of the t-shirt and attach a skirt).  Do I need to use a ball point needle if the first layer I'm sewing through is the woven cotton or can I use a universal needle for that?

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Check out these shoes!! on: October 01, 2007 12:12:34 PM

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Miss Maddie's twirlin' birthday skirt made by rockin' auntie! on: September 26, 2007 12:35:13 PM
My niece Maddie is celebrating her 4th birthday this weekend.  I had found this cute sweater this summer at a garage sale (she loves purple) and knew it needed a cute skirt made by Aunt Kelly for her birthday. So here it is...

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Goulish reversible jumper and pants (img heavy) now with action pics! on: September 14, 2007 03:10:58 PM
I don't have any action shots yet...I can't believe how easy the jumper was to make. So satisfying!! And, yes, my first pair of pants sewn by me.  The legs look a bit wide.  Hmmm, I'm not sure how to fix that now...anyway, here are some pics. Thanks for letting me share!
The whole outfit:

button detail (no button holes- - sorry, vegbee! still avoiding them!):


8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Kimono style dress on: August 16, 2007 07:56:55 PM
Anyone know of any tutes or patterns to make a dress similar to the first pic in this link:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=189824.msg1992688;topicseen#msg1992688

It's my new obsession...
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Peasant top and recon capris on: August 03, 2007 01:59:08 PM
I worked way too hard on this.  My learning curve when it comes to all things sewing is ridiculously long  Undecided  The material was actually 2 pillowcases from the DAV thrift store. Thanks to the posts on the other board who helped me figure out the insert ruffles on the legs! They didn't come out as flouncy as I would have liked but stick a fork in me...I am done!!

I'll be getting some action shots come fall but it's blasted hot here right now!

my very first try at shirring!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Monkey Mae's vegbee wrap skirt on: August 03, 2007 01:51:32 PM
I made this wrap skirt for MM 2nd birthday.  She's mad about Elmo  Tongue
Any-whoo, it seemed like something even I could manage...days later I finally put it together to find I really needed a button hole.  Just slice a hole in the bias tape waist and zig-zagged around it.  I promise I'll move onto buttonholes soon vegbee!  The skirt still seems to get droopy and I misjudged where the buttonhole should go...but,hey, I love the material and my girl!!

here's the link to vegbee's inspiration: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=115979.0
