1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / half apron on: June 02, 2008 08:43:38 AM
I made myself a test apron this week.  I want to make one for a camping trip in July, but I needed to know how.  So I cut and sewed and this is what I got. 
Any good tutes on sewing on the ruffle?  I tacked it in between the gathers but this doesn't look real secure. 
I will also add pockets to the camping one.  The ties are like 4.5 ft long to wrap around my "spare tire".  Noone home to photo on me, so modeled by my chair.  (Again, I am a handsewer.  that's why it took all week.)

What do you think?
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / name that plant on: May 30, 2008 02:00:48 PM
We moved and inherited a front deck surrounded by this plant.  What is it?  Do I want to keep it? 

I know nothing about plants and gardening, but would love to have some veggies if it isn't too late for anything this far south.  We are in South Carolina by the way.

All comments and suggestions welcome!

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / ideas for bookends on: May 21, 2008 08:51:14 AM
I'm having a very hard time keeping my kiddos books in the upright position.
Some are the puppet books so they are fatter, and there are a few homemade photo squishee books, then regular books too.
I tried boxes side by side with books inside, but didn't work.  I added a board in the middle of the shelf to make it smaller, didn't work.  I don't like them laying on top of each other and constantly sliding off the shelf where they usually get stepped on.
They must be child safe ideas, anyone help???

Thanks, Beth

sorry if this is on wrong board, mods please move if needed
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Butterick free pattern tie bag on: May 01, 2008 04:27:03 PM

Here is my first attempt at this bag.  All handsewn.  Horrible around the zipper, but I like it for summer!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / fun bag and tissue cozies on: April 22, 2008 10:47:43 AM
I'm having so much fun on crafster.  I see things I want everyday, and soon I will be able to use a machine, but for now, it's all poke and pull handsewn things.  Here's a bag I made to match my birthday shirt in the curvaceous curvers thread just for fun.   And a few tissue cozies for my daughter to give her teachers today for earth day.  I don't remember where the tute is for those, but it's here if you search.

Comments very welcome!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Birthday Shirt on: April 19, 2008 11:52:06 AM
Today is my birthday and about a week ago I told my hubby I wanted to go to the roller derby.  Being super inspired by crafster I wanted something fun to wear, so I picked up these from Wally World.  $1/yd and all some kind of stretch.

And after a week of handsewing!!!!! (I've got to learn to use a machine)))  Here's my birthday derby hoodie!

What do you think?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Handsewn scoodie for my dd on: April 17, 2008 12:04:33 PM
First attempt.  I handsew because I am mainly a quilt piecer.  I'm hoping to get up to a machine soon, but for now...

Here is my dd in her new scoodie.  She is thrilled that she can be warm at the bus stop, but not have to deal with a jacket all day!

I didn't topstitch, so I hope it stays straight.
Comments welcome.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / which comes first, interfacing or wonderunder? on: April 16, 2008 07:39:19 PM
I'm trying to make a bag out of old tees, and on one side I have a great print, but the other has a stain I want to cover.  So i plan to use wonderunder and iron on an applique.  My question is, do I attach the interfacing first or go ahead and put on the iron on applique first?
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / first stuffed fish! on: April 08, 2008 06:49:28 PM
Here is my first stuffed anything.  I haven't mastered the bunny yet, but this is made of scraps from a quilt I am working on right now.  My son loved it and tried to go put it in the fish tank!  Helpful comments always welcome.  Smiley
