Play Wedding Dress

This little wedding dress is intended for lots of fun pretend play! The dress was fashioned out of scraps left over from the cutting down of an old wedding dress. The bodice of this dress is actually made of one of  the former dress’s cap sleeves, the front body of the dress is made up of scraps of wonderfully heavy satin, pieced together vertically in the front. The back of the dress has lots of elastic gatherings under the arms and on the back top to hold the little dress up, and allow for lots of different little girls sizes! The back bottom of the dress is made up of horizontally placed scrap satin, with the back bow from the original wedding gown, and the “train” is made up of a lighter, filmier, satin. To have your old bridesmaids dresses or a wedding dress (from a consignment store?) turned into multiple fabulous pretend play items e-mail me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com !  (The original dress has made two mini  wedding dresses, a long skirt, and a ruffly shirt (wedding outfit!), and a purse! See the ruffly shirt and long skirt here!)

“Green” Tulle Skirt

I love this fun froofy skirt! It was made to coordinate with the girly Ruffly Satin Shirt. The skirt was fashioned out of layers of tulle and lining material. These materials were leftover scraps from the resizing of a wedding dress. This outfit was made for lots of fun pretend play! Here comes the bride!!! (Hopefully not for another 20 years or so!)

Green Bib!

This little bib is one of my favorites! I made this bib out of one of Dad’s old workshirts-he had “blown out” the elbow. I carefully cut around the pocket to use it as the center of the bib and used white bias tape to finish it off. This bib survived my now 4 year old and still looks great!

Green-What?! White filmy satin shirt for girls!

Honestly, I want this shirt for myself! The ruffles are slightly asymmetrical slivers of sumptuous thick white satin, the filmy part of the shirt is made out of two layers of a soft white lining material, and the ties on the back are also the satin material. This lovely little blouse was made out of scraps left over from a resized wedding dress! Don’t you love being green?!

Bleach Pen Craft for Kids-Art Shirt

My 9 year old son loved doing this “craft”! He needed an Art Shirt for school-they recommend one of Dad’s Old Shirts. So, I let Cole decorate his however he wanted with a Clorox Bleach Pen. Just remember to put something between the layers of the shirt so it doesn’t soak through!

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 !
