21  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Spectrum baby/lap quilt on: April 15, 2009 05:21:41 AM
I love the way this quilt came together. I was inspired by a quilt set I saw at Target a few weeks ago that was rainbow-ish but they didn't have a baby size. I used bunches of different fabrics including some vintage, designer, and flannel. the binding is solid black with a solid white super comfy fuzzy fabric. I hand bound the back and freemotioned the top and batting. This is after washing.

Measures 40x39"








I have a few more photos more close ups of the colors in my folder if you want to check them out

thanks for looking!
22  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / woodland bloom baby/lap quilt on: April 07, 2009 01:27:49 PM
ok so this probably isn't anything anyone hasn't seen before but I figured this out on my own so I'm pleased as punch with it. Smiley

I used a charm pack of the Woodland Bloom fabric line but supplimented my own green, pink, brown and darker brown fabrics so I can make a seperate quilt out of the blues/reds of the line.




23  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Swanky baby/lap quilt pic heavy on: March 25, 2009 01:36:10 PM
Just got done this last night. Took me about 2 days on and off. It's 40x 37" and has a chenille back. the top and batting were machine quilted using a meandering path. the binding was hand sewn on the back and the back has a little appliqe square of the same fabrics as the front. The cream on the front is flannel. I used Moda's Swanky line from Chez Moi just one charm pack.






And on a side note, my neighbor wants me to make one for her to give as a gift and wants to know how much i'd charge...what would something like this go for, reasonably?
24  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / making wall tiles?? on: March 25, 2009 12:19:18 PM
we're currently investigating building our own house. I want this home to be a reflection of my hubby, kids and I and i  want to put lots of personal touches throughout. I woudl really like to make my own wall tiles for the bathroom and backsplash in the kitchen, maybe not floor to ceiling but either a mural or focus tiles. I'm not sure where to get unfinished tiles or if I could make them myself. Could they be sculpty in the kitchen? or how do I make tiles w/ceramics w/o a kiln or anything? I'm really new at this but this is something I'm very interested in learning. The only place I can think to go is the local paint your own pottery but they're mucho dinero.
25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Lotsa Loungers on: March 19, 2009 03:54:15 PM
I posted a few weeks ago 3 lounge/pj pants I've made my son. I made 2 more today featuring the ever-awesome Star Wars and every boys necessity, Hot Wheels. I picked up some white T-s and Tanks from Old navy to pair with them. If you didn't catch my first post I blogged the tutorial here http://solidityofrainbows.blogspot.com/2009/02/loungers-tutorial-in-comfort.html And yes, I could barely pull him away from the Wii to take a photo of him in the pants. He wanted to wear them all day after too Smiley No better praise than that!



26  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / OVER Stimulated baby quilt and a ton of pics on: March 11, 2009 03:04:41 PM
I started out about 6 months ago knowing I wanted to make some black/red/white thing for the new baby but didn't really know what. This was really easy to put together. I cut and laid the 4.5" blocks out last night, I started sewing it this morning and finished it up this evening. This is with big gaps of taking care of kids and cooking and stuff too.



It measures 36"x31" finished. I meandering top stitched the top and batting together and hand sewn the  binding onto the backing. I used black thread for the top stitching, I've found that white can make the color look faded and I wanted this to maintain the color. The back is white terry cloth, not the cuddliest but I wanted this for more of a play mat than a snuggly blankie. I thought the terry would be absorbant and wash up well.



I appliqued 3 large squares on the back from michael millers fabrics. Some of the fabrics are MM line others are just black/white/red combo's I either had or picked up for this project.



Now my little 11 week baby boy, Max, can be properly stimulated. Smiley I can use it as a blanket, play mat for the floor, drape it over the back of the car seat so he can look at it in the car, etc.



27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mamas sewn a brand new bag on: March 04, 2009 11:54:32 AM
I saw this fabric and fell in love. I wanted to use a huge solid piece pattern to really display the art of the fabric and found the amy butler sling to be just what i wanted. My SIL has this same bag in some AB prints for use as a diaper bag that a friend made her. The hardest part of this was ironing on the interfacing mainly because i burned the heck out of my arm on the iron. Now I need to make some zipper pouches to go in it so I don't loose everything.

Anyway, here's my finished purse

interior -I used the outer fabric for the pockets even though the instructions called for the lining fabric. I like this better.

28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A new take on the Pinny pic hvy on: February 26, 2009 09:33:39 AM
Here is a pinnafore I made my 2yo. I loved making this except for the handmade binding!!!! UGH that was a PITA. I think next time I'll make it with reg. packaged binding. Though this did come out totally cute. I'm making a pair of bloomers too but it was too cold for them today. Sorry about the bed head I wanted to take it before she spilt something on it (which of course she did). I also had to bribe her with fruit snacks...




29  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Loungers - pics and tutorial link! on: February 19, 2009 12:24:52 PM
I made these for me boy. He never gets the fruits of my labors so I made him these three pairs of lounger pants. They're not really jammies bc the fabric tells me not to use them for jammies but sometimes he falls asleep wearing them...

I make mine with super fat legs because i think it looks cool and use flannel for the fabric as it's pretty soft and comfy and what would loungers be if they weren't comfy. I'll tell you what they'd be, slacks.

These are pretty great because for my almost 7yo i needed less than a yard for each pair and it was on sale for $2.49 at Joann's. I also had the .08 p/yd elastic left over from the cheap patchwork skirt.

Here's the link for the tute. http://solidityofrainbows.blogspot.com/2009/02/loungers-tutorial-in-comfort.html
 
Here's the photos of the pants and my totally cool kid.


30  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Why does this remind me of Christopher Robin? pic hvy on: February 19, 2009 01:04:37 AM
especially since he was a boy. Maybe it has something to do with the photo and her pose in this first pic. I don't know.


I made this reversable pinnafore last summer and just came across the photos again while cleaning up my files. I was (ans still am!) so in love with it.



One side is AH Rose tatoo fabric and the other is a vintage red with little white flower hearts on it. I put two big pockets on the front and a little pocket in the chest of the reverse which also has a little puffy red heart on a string that keeps in the pocket.
