2  Knot purse - teacher gift in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by loralie on: May 18, 2008 10:03:12 AM
I'm making bags as gifts for my daughter's two preschool teachers.  Here is the first one:

It is crazy quilted from Mary Engelbreit's new Friends and Flowers line of fabrics.  I love these prints and wish I could keep this bag for myself!!!

3  Crazy Quilted Knot Purse for Mother's Day in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by loralie on: May 06, 2008 11:47:50 AM
I made this purse as my mom's mother's day gift.  It came out pretty small though.  Hopefully she will still be able to use it!  I crazy quilted it using April Cornell napkins I bought when the outlet closed.  The tie and straps are some scraps from JoAnn.
Thank you for looking!  Let me know what you think!

4  From mama tee to girlie dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by loralie on: February 06, 2008 09:59:58 AM
My DH and I give blood regularly, and most of the time they give us a free t-shirt.  So we have quite a collection of tees, mostly in size huge.  I've never sewed on knit, so I thought I wouldn't waste expensive fabric and just cut up a t-shirt.  Here is the result - I made it sleeveless but she has a shirt under:

Thanks for looking!  Now I have big plans for some of my other old clothes!

5  Reversible Anna dress: Engelbreit and Bugs Bunny! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by loralie on: February 05, 2008 04:01:21 PM
This is my first time making the Farbenmix Anna pattern.  I made it reversible and actually didn't mess up.  I didn't have to use the seam ripper AT ALL!  It's the first time in a long time I haven't used that thing, lol!

One side (uh, both sides of one side because I love Mary E) is Mary Engelbreit's LOVE fabric.  It will be Eva's Valentine dress.  The other side is Bugs Bunny and a paw print.  (underneath is a very wrinkly April Cornell dress!)

Thanks for looking!

6  Mickey Mouse shirt and pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by loralie on: January 18, 2008 02:38:44 PM
Eva loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, so when she saw the Mickey fabric at Hancock's she was very excited.  It was 50% off so I was happy to buy some for her  Smiley.

The pants are from Ottobre and were my first experience with tracing and adding seam allowances.  The rise came out too short and I had to add a piece of twill tape to the top.  It's still a bit too short, oh well. 

Thanks for looking!

I love the fabrics everyone chose!  I made this one over the summer, and I definitely need to make another!  I added pockets to the inside and outside of this one.  Next time I'm going to try to add a zippered section (it won't be reversible anymore though).

8  Peasant Dress - how should I embellish? in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by loralie on: January 06, 2008 03:36:08 PM
This is the peasant shirt from Dainty Designs (youcanmakethis.com) lengthened into a dress.  I had a terrible time with this pattern!  Eva is a petite size 18-24 months, and after throwing out my 2T attempt, I cut it as a 5/6 and it is still a bit tight in the armpits.  I bought the pattern because it had SO many positive reviews...maybe it's just me. 

If anyone has ideas about how to embellish this, please post them.  Maybe some pockets?  Trim?  I did use two different fabrics but you can't really tell.

Thanks for looking.
