I love this remake. If you have more detailed instructions than what is here, I would love them!…
Two different summer dresses.
The first was suppose to have sleeves, but I used bias tape to bind it.
The pockets have an appliqued frog and glued on sparkly dots to make the crown and wand.
Fleece toddler’s jacket.
The frog body is a pocket. The legs and eyes are appliqued on.
Two different types of shorts.
The camo, blue (recycled tshirt), spiderweb (glows in the dark) have no pockets and are very basic.
The aboriginal print and the Noah’s ark print has pockets …

I had just under 1 m of hello kitty flannelette that my mom had given me.
I don’t use flannelette that much except for bibs.
This was my first attempt at PJs for my daughter.
There wasn’t enough…
And so with the last of the watermelon fabric, I found a skort pattern.
I cut out the short pieces first, and then found not enough for the skirt section.
Back to the store. But t…
Using more of the watermelon fabric, I was always wanting to try making a peasant blouse.
They look so cute on kids.
And look pretty easy to make.
I didn’t have a pattern, so did…
So with the leftover fabric, I made a skirt.
But was slightly short for the ruffle.
Went to the store, and it was on SALE! 3m for 1m.
So I bought some fabric with these cute watermelons on to make a dress for her.
Turned out pretty cute.
Of course there is always the leftovers..
So I made some panties to go with it.
One for him, one for her
I put plastic lined with foam between the jiffy grip and the flannelette sole.

I love that dress, especially the back straps!

Another pair of pants that became too short.
She is sprouting so quick, I can’t keep up.
To get more life out of these, which I had only made a couple of months ago, I added a flounce.

My mum taught me to sew and also there was sewing in home ec at school. I can remember the first…
Daycare has a christmas concert and the colours are red, black and white.
My daughter doesn’t have any red dresses, so it was a mad scramble to come up with something festive.
And this is what it…
My daughter is growing like a weed. I made her a pair of pants out of fleecy sweatshirt material, only to find she grew an inch taller. and now they are too short. What to do?
In the end I und…
My daughter use to lie on this blanket when she was a baby. Then I had a son, and needed something more boyish for him. What to do with the blanket?
There was just enough to get a bathrobe made …
Had an old t shirt that I no longer wear. I upcycled it for my son. He has a big head, so I wanted to make it so that it easily fits on, with no buttons or snaps.
The sleeves were a bit short, …
Wow! That is a beautiful dress and fits your friend perfectly. Very nice.
Boy’s robe with a hood.
I modified the belt, making it shorter and sewing it on to the robe at the back. The loops never work for me with kids, as the kids always pull the belt out.
I loved it…
My co-worker gave me an old fine cotton sweater. I recycled it into a new jacket for my son.
I loved the pattern so much I made another in yellow fleece.
The only difficulty is getting the manda…
These are soooo easy and everyone loves them.
They only take about 1.5hrs at the most.
