OK I finished. I just wish it wasn't 10:30pm. I'll have to wait till morning to try it on her. I'll get some action shots in the morning. Tutorial was great. You may want to change your strap count to 4 pieces on the material list. Not sure if the length is right also. I think it was for the original design which was just two solid straps. That was the only problem that I had. I was just to lazy to make new ones. So I used ribbon. Hope they hold up. If not I'll switch them out.
The last two pics are more true in color.
I also made the pocket just a tiny bit bigger. For some reason it looked too small to me.
I received from IllusionsOfNormal today. I feel so blessed. This swap was so much fun. What a great package.I received four matching shirts for the kids,a matching necklace and earring set. A beautiful tree picture just like one that I had on my wist list. I also received some book marks, a bird stamp, some pretty felt coasters, notecards and some paint in my favorite color. Thank you so much IllusionsOfNormal.
I made this coat about a month ago. I just put the buttons on it today finally. I tested a boys coat pattern for Kitschy Coo. It came out beautiful. Could not be any cuter. Very easy. As is all of her patterns. The sizing was a little off. It came out a little big. But I'm sure that's fixed now. It's totally reversible. Which I love. He can wear the velour side to church and the elephant side out shopping and things.
My daughter spied this princess fabric in my fabric stash a few days ago and has not stopped asking for it since. She's 2, so she doesn't understand that it's just fabric until it's made into something. So I made a quick summer nightie to make her happy.
First I made this dress out of some preshirred fabric that I bought at the end of the season last year on sale. Then I added a few things to make it even more girly. First I made the straps, then the ruffle at the bottom and the tie back bow around the middle. I'm happy with the results. It's a little big on my model. The little girl that I made it for is a little bigger than she is.
My son bought a ipod touch a few weeks ago. After realizing how cool it was, I bought one for myself. So I thought I would make a couple cozies to store them in. This is the tutorial that I used http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=740. Can you guess which one is mine?
I won this swing top pattern from Kitschy Coo's blog. It's so fun and easy to make. It can be worn 4 diffrent ways. I only have buttons on one side for now. so I only took pics of two. Its black with small, white polka dots on the other side. I bribed her with a pop to let me take pics. If any one is interested in it. She has the pattern for sale in her Etsy shop.
