1  Kwik Sew Clutches in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by JennasMommy on: September 07, 2009 05:24:49 PM
Here are two clutches I recently made with the free Kwik Sew Clutch pattern http://www.kwiksew.com/Projects/5001.pdf. Really easy pattern to follow. I did struggle with the stiff interfacing being it was my first time using the Pellon 70. I really didn't like the wrinkled effect from the fusible interfacing...any tips to keep this from happening is appreciated. After my mom seen my skull clutch she fell in love with the shape/size and wanted one for herself but with a purse strap.  I couldn't convince her to let me make her a skull one   Cheesy so I made her a zebra one...now whenever we go shopping I can spot her a mile away  Wink . Thanks for looking~~ Mary :mrgreen:

2  Spongebob Market Outfit in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by JennasMommy on: August 05, 2009 05:56:22 AM
Last week I ran across this lovely tutorial for a market skirt, it was love at first site  Kiss..... http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/tutorial-market-skirt.html. Jenna loves Spongebob, can't you tell thats what shes watching in these pics Cheesy? Perfect timing for this tut b/c I had just bought some SB fabric and wasn't sure how to use it. This skirt is super easy to do and doesn't take alot of fabric. It took me a little longer to make it b/c my white fabric was way to thin so I ended up doubling up on it. Which worked out better in the end b/c didn't have to hem it.  The only change I made were to the pockets, didn't follow the gathered pocket instructions 'To a T'. Planning on making alot more of these. They will look so cute in fall colors paired up with tights underneath. Thanks for looking!



A few action shots





P.S. Also posting this on the machine embroidery board, hope thats ok.

3  Appliqued Owl Twirl Top and Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by JennasMommy on: November 11, 2008 05:57:01 PM
The second I seen this pattern I just knew I had to get it...TWIRL TOP & PANTS by SEWBABY (sz 1-4). It came together rather nicely(first time doing pants) and it was pretty easy to make. It was my first time doing ruffles/gathering Tongue, not my favorite thing but I love the effect. I ended up with some 'less ruffled spots' than others so next time I will pay more attention to that. This is definitely my favorite new pattern Grin.

Here's the completed set. Sewed a small button to the front of the pants so I could tell the front from the back Lips sealed.

Here some action shots BEFORE I added the applique to the pants

Here we are playing hide and go seek (guess who's 'IT' Wink Huh


THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!

4  Girly Baby Shower Gift Set in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by JennasMommy on: October 22, 2008 12:20:12 PM
My SIL's sister (say that 3 times fast) is due for Christmas so I decided it would be the perfect time to make my first baby gift...burpies, wipes case, and pacifier clippie. I just found out she's not into bright colors so uhhhhhh I may not have picked the best fabric Undecided, oh well more reason for baby Kensi' to spit up on it Cheesy. Sure wish I would have known how to sew when I had DD 2 years ago....I would have loved to made these for myself. Oh well my next child will be stylin then Cool. Thanks for looking!

7  Zebra Pleatness in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by JennasMommy on: May 12, 2008 07:54:46 AM
First I would like to thank APPLESAREGREEN for your lovely tutorial!!! It was a very easy tutorial to follow,  wish the zipper instructions would have been a little more clearer but it was still a great tut. It was my first zipper, way easier than I expected to install. When I came to the last step (tucking/sewing the ends of the zipper) I had trouble sewing it on my machine so I ended up hand sewing the curves. It did take longer than I expected to complete Roll Eyes, but next time will be alot easier. I did make a few changes/add ons......added inside pockets, made the straps longer, and used ultra firm stabilzer so it has more of a boxy shape. This was a birthday gift for DD's Nanny. She turned 18 this Saturday. She mentioned to me 2 weeks ago how much she loves zebra print so I felt it was my duty to make a zebra purse. She loved it! My mom wants one now Grin. Hope you like it!

Don't you just love my wonky hand sewed curves  Wink


Figured you might want to see the inside.....2 big pockets and 1 pen pocket

9  Crazy for alines (Img Heavy) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by JennasMommy on: April 07, 2008 11:51:51 AM
A few weeks ago I made my first lined aline(brown & pink) for DD using New Look 6578. All I can say is I am hooked! These are so easy to make. My favorite is the jalapeno dress, can you tell I was born and raised in Louisiana...Eieeeee e!!!! Kiss? The ducky outfit is my really cute except for the pants (NewLook 6713), they fit like a garbage bag Angry. If someone has any insight on a better fitting pants/capri pattern for diaper wearing toddlers, please let me know.

Here is what I made so far........

10  Re: baby dresses- fun and easy! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by JennasMommy on: April 04, 2008 07:37:50 AM
Great job!!!! Love how you made the pink one reversiable! As for buttonholes, I was scarred of them too until I got my new 1step buttonhole machine a few weeks ago. It even measures the button for you. Makes alines very easy to make! Its nice to finally see someone else using the same pattern as me Wink. I bought the toddlers size(1/2,1,2,3,4) one instead (6578). I never tried making it with a yoke (as the pattern states), I find lining it is much easier! Have you ever tried tracing your patterns instead of cutting the actual pattern? I promise you it isn't hard as it may sound. I use tissue paper to trace all my patterns so my original stays intact. You can also get special tracing paper (Pattern Ease) at your local fabric store, I use tissue paper b/c its cheap Cheesy. Then I store everything in gallon zip lock bag in my pattern drawer.

Please don't think I am trying to steal your thunder but thought you might like see some I made.....

1st one made

These were matching for Easter Pics (Jenna & her 1st cousin Gracie)
