1  Scotty potholders in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Alisek on: November 18, 2007 03:39:10 AM

2  Something warm for upcoming winter... in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Alisek on: November 17, 2007 12:31:54 PM
Hi there!
Here in Europe it gets quickly very cold so I was thinking to make some nice outfit for my little baby girl (she got her ears pierced today...Embarrassed). It is completely lined with fleece. I also have a jacket from this outfit, so now we make a perfect match.

Here is my girls jacket.


And here is my jacket.

5  Baby hat with feelers, pattern + tutorial included in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Alisek on: September 13, 2007 09:14:37 AM
Hi there!
I just made some hats for my baby girl so I thought it could be helpful for someone if I share this idea. The hat is totally easy to make and could be a good gift if you are in a hurry or just simply want to make something customized.

Lets see...
http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff176/alisekjezu/Voila.jpg
Okay, you start with a piece of some at least a little bit stretchy fabric. I made this one from heavy knitted fabric.
http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff176/alisekjezu/1.jpg
Pin parts as shown here and sew, best results on serger.
http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff176/alisekjezu/2.jpg
Prepare 2 ties approx. 20 cm long, finish their ends in the fire so that they won't frazzle. Pin them as shown.
http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff176/alisekjezu/2b.jpg
After sewing of all parts (shown bellow), turn the feelers right side is up. Sew the bottom so that it makes a circle.
http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff176/alisekjezu/3.jpg
Turn the bottom right side up and place the feelers inside the hat and sew the top of the hat.
http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff176/alisekjezu/4.jpg
Attach the bottom to the finished top, in case of problems, use the marks in the pattern (A, B).

Finished hat.

I also added some hot-fix stones to make it special.

And finally here goes the pattern.

I am European so I use metric measurements...hope you can handle.
Till next time.
