1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My version of Kimberlina's Reversible Retro Wrap Jumper Top on: February 20, 2008 01:04:42 PM
So I really liked the dress that Kimberlina had made http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=185607.0 And I had this really cute fabric that I picked up that was perfect for a reversible dress. Since she so nicely put a drawing of the pattern she used, I got out my pencil and got to work. I figured out the measurements for my 6 month old and drew out my pattern.

I altered a few things like adding a scoop neckline and making the buttons come in from the back. I like doing that so as Little Miss grows all I have to do is move the buttons down the strap to add more room in the arm area.I also top stitched all the way around so hopefully when it comes out of the wash I wont have to iron Wink

This was so quick and easy it's not even funny! It took me about an hour or so to figure out the measurements and draw out the pattern. And another hour to cut sew and press! WaLaa!











I liked this pattern so much I even had to share on my blog. Next I am going to draw up a pattern for a matching diaper cover. I am also definitely going to figure out the next sizes up so I can make some more Smiley So thanks so much Kimberlina! Grin
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Orange flowers and pink stripes Oh My! on: February 19, 2008 12:46:03 AM
So I made this little apron dress for my daughter a few months back and am really happy with how it turned out. I know it's pretty loud but that's what I like about it Tongue  I used a "pattern" or more like a how to that I got off of "You Can Make This". Next time though I am going to use a light weight fabric for the skirt. The fabric I used on this is a heavy velvety fabric and quite a bit fuller than I would have liked but I also wanted it to be warm for her. I really love the apron part. It's sewn in, and Miss Banana loves to pull on it and play with it.



Oh and I absolutely love the buttons I found for this.! I think they match perfectly Cheesy
And please excuse my button hole skills...still not to good at that.


I can't wait to make the next dress. Since I made this one I have gotten a serger so that should make the whole process a lot faster!
3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / My first navajo plied on spindle. on: February 03, 2008 07:24:27 PM
Hi all, I'm new here and figured I would start by showing off my most recent spinning project. I started with about 2 ounces of columbia/dorset blend wool, I dyed it with food coloring & vinegar and heat set it in the microwave.



It took me about a week to get it all spun up. I really love the way it turned out. Although I wish I had put more blue in when dying it.



This was my very first attempt to navajo ply, and I really liked doing it! All in all I came out with about 111 yards.
I'm thinking I might have just enough to make a pair of fingerless gloves
