1  CPAP cover tutorial in Completed Projects by crassy_mcnasty on: January 12, 2014 06:12:59 PM
My husband needs a CPAP machine and the latex head piece irritates his skin.  So I have been making him covers and I thought I'd share in case it helps anyone else.

You'll need:
Sewing machine & thread
Buttonhole foot
Soft material (I used flannel or terry cloth)
Button the size of the plugs
Paper & pen/marker

All of these steps you'll do twice since there are two, I recommended doing both together

First I took off the head piece and traced it onto paper

Then I cut it in half, folded the fabric in half and pinned it to the fabric and cut about 1/2 inch around

Unpin, unfold and line up with head piece.  On one side mark in the center of the fabric where the plugs that snap into the mask.  Make a line.

Put your sewing machine on the buttonhole setting, use the button that is a similar size to the plugs for the buttonhole foot and sew over your mark.

Then fold the piece over and sew around the edges leaving the bottom open ( you can skip sewing around the top because you have a fold there.

Turn inside out and slide onto the headpiece with the buttonholes opening for the plugs

Your done, now it's time to snap the plugs into the mask and have a good sleep!

I got my house and I love it!  I didn't get a better picture, my camera isn't the best.   but I'm going to repost with a picture of my real house cause it looks a lot like it.  and I have 2 black kittehs that are always looking out the windows too!  

Leslieshappyheart, the house you made is so beautiful!  wow!

the spool house is super cute, using the zipper as trim is brilliant! love the smoke too!

what a great idea the house book was!

all the houses are too cute, this is an awesome gallery.

I got this a while ago but didn't have time to post pics.  It's a beautiful thread catcher from troublet.  complete with scissors and pin cushion.  And it has a non-slip mat sewed into the back- perfect for my clumsiness.  I love the color- and love the gingham print.  And I didn't tell her this- but blue is perfect for my sewing room- which is done in blues and greens!

The front:

The back:

Adorable owls!!!

My partner is having trouble getting pics of the hoodie I sent- and unfortunately I deleted mine for some reason.  Sorry!!  I only was able to recover 2 of them.  i didn't get the front that outlines the pockets in lovely matching ribbon or the matching ribbon pulls on the hood.  But at least here's 2 photos of the back.

It is a navy hoodie with turquoise, lime green, and yellow ribbon trim, plus a lime green elephant and turquoise quote my partner likes from a Taylor Swift song called Mean.

10  cute owl dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by crassy_mcnasty on: August 19, 2011 01:58:08 PM
my friend just had a baby so i had to make a cute little dress for her.  it was super easy to make, i used this tutorial on prudent baby: http://www.prudentbaby.com/2010/03/diy-pillowcase-baby-dress-pattern.html

i found rick rack that was soft and fuzzy for $1 at the fabric warehouse near me like 100 years ago and got it knowing that it would be perfect for something.  well this is it- i love the look of rick rack but it's kind of stiff and didn't want to put that on a tiny baby's dress, but the soft one is perfect.  i rick-racked the inside of the 'sleeves' too so it has a scalloped effect.  I hope that mommy and baby love it.
