Hello! My MIL bought the stuff (styrofoam rectangles, glue, fabric, pink fuzzy stuff, small Care Bears, wooden letter things she made) to make this little shelf...she told me what she wanted, and asked me to construct it. This is what I came up with.
She was pleased. This is for my SIL, she is expecting her first baby (girl) this summer. She's decorating the room in Care Bears.
This is not a recon, because I bought Lawn Chair Webbing specifically for this project. I did not reuse old webbing. I guess you could, though. If I posted this in the wrong spot, mods feel free to move it. Thanks!
So, I saw this tutorial: http://www.twofoos.com/crafts/sp.html for a seatbelt bag...cool...I showed my MIL and she said, "that would look cool made out of Lawnchair webbing!" so we got on ebay, ordered some, and here is our first of many bags...
If we were to try to sell these (evenutually) do you think people would buy them???
I used Sharpies with stencils on Shrinky Dink paper...then added teeny tiny magnets to the backs....I think I will give to Mom for mother's day, since they are the names of me and my sister and our husbands and kids....think she will like?
I started working on this last night, and broke my last needle, so I didn't get to finish it till after a trip to the fabric store (oh darn!) today...I'm pretty happy with it. I wanted to topstitch around the top but it was too thick and I couldn't. Also, my handles are a bit "weak" or "thin" since I didn't add webbing to them...
(((It was made from Simplicity Pattern # 8331, view E)))
I've been sewing for about 2 months now, making bags & purses & whatnot...I think I am ready to make a garment. I bought Simplicity 3893. I'm going to make view A. I've seen view B on here before, and I really liked it...I bought cheap walmart fabric, for the first one...we'll see how it turns out, then I'll get a nicer fabric and do it again...
Does anyone have any advice for a first garment? I bought the pattern that has my RTW size, but I will have to measure myself to see which size to actually make. Do patterns tend to run big or small or same as RTW?
Say a little prayer for me this weekend...we'll see how it goes!!! Thanks!!!
