The Orange Kitty Collection

All the fun Orange Kitty items were made from an orange and white striped repurposed men’s shirt! What fun it was turning one men’s shirt into so many girly little items!! My personal favorite, though are the bloomers! Girly bloomers with fun springtime blooms to match the fun dresses! The blooms are made of the orange and white striped shirting material and the stamens are hand embroidered orange and blue (to match the little Polo insignia) french knots, the green stems are done in a stem stitch and the little leaves are done in backstitches.  The little ruffly dress shows off the original “Polo” insignia and  is approximately a 6-12 month size. It has elastic on the shoulder ruffly straps, the back of the dress and under the arms. The halter dress has a ribbon that can be tied at the back of the neck or on one side or the other in the front (or back for that matter)-the halter used as a dress will fit sizes approximately 12-18 months or as a halter swing top from sizes 2-3T. The back of the halter dress shows off the original buttons of the men’s shirt, and the back of the dress is a bit longer than the front of the dress due to the nature of the Halter dress itself.  The orange kitty has hand embroidered eyes, nose and mouth. The matching bib also has hand embroidery accents and velcro dots to allow for a growing little girl!  The two coordinating hair bands are both made of elastic bands for stretch and comfort. This collection is one of a kind as I do not use patterns to make my childrens clothing.

Sorry-the only items left on this set are the adorable orange and white kitty, bib, and matching mini blanket. To purchase these items e-mail me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com or check them out in person at the Gifted Hands shop in Wexford, PA.  If you’d like this collection in a different print contact me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com.

Gwendolyn Outfit

I love this little outfit! It reminds me of the times of Kings and Queens. The pants are made of a sage velvet with an elastic waist band. The shirt is made of an ivory cotton on the sleeves and sides, with a sage velvet inset right in front. The ivory sleeves have hand embroidered accents of a tawny light brown chain stitch at the shoulders and at the  cuffs. The ivory part of the bodice has more chain stitching around the top and the bottom, the sage part has pin tucking at the top neck line and a wrapped back stitch in ivory at the hemline. The shoulders, the back middle, and under the arms of the shirt have elastic gatherings for a snug fit and to allow room for growth. This little peasant style blouse and pants outfit was inspired by a little princess named Gwendolyn-how fitting is that?!

Some Green and Some New!

I refashioned this small women’s turtleneck (green!) for an adorable 4 year old and paired it with a sweet pair of pants with floral embroidery to coordinate (not green!). The pants are made with an elastic waistband for easy on and off and all seams are finished using a serger.  The flowers on the pants are worked using a lazy daisy stitch and french knot stamens, the viney pattern is made using a modified stem stitch.  The coordinating fun springy hat is also hand embroidered with a similar floral pattern using soft turquoise, sage green, coral and light tawny brown coordinating colors.

Dad, “What Happened to my pants (and shirt)?!”

These fun appliques and pants were made from Dad’s old pants and shirt. I love the fun pants with the original pockets from Dad’s pants-how cool is that?! Appliques are fairly easy to do, try Light Steam-a-Seam 2 double sided fusible webbing (available at JoAnn Fabrics). Trace or draw your shape onto the paper, peel off top layer of paper, attach sticky part to fabric, and cut out your shape. Iron as directed. You really don’t need to do any embroidery, this stuff works really well! I added some straight stitching, back stitching, and french knots to add a bit of dimension to the animals. The first set( with the puppy) are made from the mens pants. These kids pants are great for toddlers-no zipper, just elastic!  So, easy up and easy down. The second set ( with the dinosaur) are made out of a mens t-shirt and are soft and comfy, perfect for PJ’s! Then, oh my-the purse! Something for daddy’s little girl! The four large pockets are perfect for making pockets inside and on the outside of the purse. Two more pockets are made from the placement of the pockets themselves, then add a side pocket for glasses or a cell phone (velcro closure), fun “what are those tiny pockets for?” from the pants added to the side, and I even used the adjustable belt from the pants to make the purse handle adjustable also.  I embroidered a backstitched “H” for Hailey, a few french knots to fancy it up, and a magnetic closure for the middle so you don’t lose your fun stuff, and she is ready to go! Sorry, Dad! Too much fun with those pants of yours!  For your own custom made Green Wear e-mail me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com !

Newborn Baby Girl Dress and Hat

This little dress and hat may be blue-but there’s no doubt that it’s girly! The flower added to the hat gives it a little extra whimsy!
