1  Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by SuomiSidhe on: December 20, 2010 08:59:44 AM
Ok, here's my newest machine, a 1913 White treadle, for the days when my solar power isn't strong enough to run the electric ones...



I took the pic before I had the belt on and she was ready to run.

3  Re: Labyrinth Swap Round Three Gallery in The Swap Gallery by SuomiSidhe on: February 28, 2010 07:34:46 AM
Ok, so when I signed up for this swap, I had very little idea of what life had in store for me before I would be able to send out my package (which was terribly late!). First there was a bout of bronchitis that lasted over a month, including a trip to the ER, which led directly into an episode of my "maybe-MS", a very stressful sewing job I never got paid for, then my daughter getting extremely sick (leading to me once again sick now), and last but not least, the beginning of a divorce. *phew* Soooo, it was so lovely and refreshing to receive in the mail this amazing box full of goodies from Ceemonster!! I tried very hard to NOT open it until I was ready to send out hers because I felt very guilty. However, the box said "fragile" and my daughter accidentally knocked it off of my bed... so I just HAD to open it to make sure everything was ok. Wink She helped me open it too and we took a LOT of pictures...


So adorable the owl card!!

This beautiful goblin mask now hangs up above my sewing table as I make my dress for the ball...

I just love the nose!!

Oh my gosh, look at all the stuff in this box!!

In the red bag, three sets of goblin horns, for me and my little minions...

A pack of cute owl notecards!

Yummy flavored bubbles! (I think the little minions like these too!)

Hoggle bracelets!

And a GORGEOUS Sarah/Jareth necklace!!! (My 8 year old son said "Ooooh... Well, personally I just like the owl by itself, but it IS very nice.")

A fairy bookmark... and she hasn't bit me... YET!!

And, I love this mug. I have been drinking my coffee out of this. Smiley

So, now, if Flickr gets all cranky about me linking to my photos, you can see them all here at Flickr as well:

This was my first swap here at Craftster, so I wasn't quite sure what to do or what to expect at first. I think I got the greatest swap partner and I am so happy for that. She did an amazing job. My kids and I have never had a better time to receive such a fun package that we could all enjoy. Now to go pop Labyrinth into the DVD player and make ourselves some tea while wearing our matching goblin horns while we snuggle up together.  Grin

I'm terribly nervous now as I wait for my partner to get her package... (Does everyone get that way once they've sent it out??)

4  A Hat For My Geeky Side in Knitting: Completed Projects by SuomiSidhe on: July 16, 2008 10:19:26 AM
This is the Chromosome Cap by Carissa Browning. I linked to her pattern through Ravelry. I was so excited to be knitting a hat for myself that I got it done in less than a week. I finished it up while the kids played Rockband at a friend's kid's birthday party. Smiley

Me Modeling:


Moments After Finishing:


This hat totally appeals to my inner geek (the cables are chromosomes!) and I'm on the prowl for more science geek inspired knit patterns... any suggestions??

5  A Hat For My Little Goddess in Knitting: Completed Projects by SuomiSidhe on: July 16, 2008 10:14:53 AM
I started this hat back in february for my daughter. It's all done on the fly. I tried to take notes so I could write out a pattern later but I didn't do a great job at that. I finally finished it up and here it is...

6  A Cute Lil Froggy in Needlework: Completed Projects by SuomiSidhe on: July 07, 2008 11:22:53 AM
Back before I had children, and probably not much since high school, I used to do a lot of embroidery. I drew the designs myself and then sewed them onto my jeans as patches. I decided to try getting back into it to make patches for my kids. So the first one I did was not my own drawing, but from a book of random transfers that I found a long time ago in a thrift store. I think it's very cute... (and I have another piece already started...)





The nostrils are the first french knots I have ever been successful at. I'm quite proud.

7  Outfit For A Friend's Daughter in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by SuomiSidhe on: July 03, 2008 02:26:35 PM
One of my favorite toddlers ever is having a birthday this weekend so I am making her a few things. I just finished this outfit today:







So, I have some ric rac that is the same red as the straps. I'm wondering if I should put it on the pants. Either over where the two fabrics meet or just under the hem so only half of it shows. I don't know, though.. What do you all think?

8  Kids Apron Made From Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by SuomiSidhe on: July 02, 2008 09:28:27 PM
A friend of mine recently gifted me with a lot of no-longer-wanted clothing for my new recon habit. I loved the fabric of these pants but it just isn't me. So I hacked them up and made an apron for my kids.

Here it is, modeled by my lovely Maia:


Here's the pants before:



And one more pic of Maia posing... this was her own idea:


What you can't see is that the front of the apron is about 7 pieces sewn together. The back is baby blue cotton. I'll try to get a pic tomorrow that shows all the pieces sewn together.

9  Old Jeans Recon in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by SuomiSidhe on: June 30, 2008 04:24:00 PM
I have a couple pairs of old Levi's hanging out here with holes in their knees. So I decided to cut a pair up and see what I could come up with. Here's what I've done so far...

10  My New Sauna Coverup! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SuomiSidhe on: June 27, 2008 12:32:09 PM
This latest t-shirt recon of mine took a few days to finish and I still might add straps to it. But for now, I'm calling it finished.

Here it is!!:


I got this shirt from one of my favorite destinations in the whole world while I was living in Arcata (I'm also Finnish, so I'm a bit biased). I love getting place t-shirts like this but I'm so not into boxy t-shirts. This one was a little small, so the recon got tricky...


But I had an old jersey knit sheet that had already been cut up for parts, so I used that. It just happened to match the tea dyed lace trim perfectly...


And since I LOVE pockets, the sleeves got to be involved too:
