1  Got Bored.. Made a Wreath in Thanksgiving by Pamcake1323 on: September 24, 2013 05:50:29 AM

Quick and easy scrappy wreath. I bought a ton of ribbon after making this so may add some or do another wreath.

2  cincher belt thing. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Pamcake1323 on: September 16, 2009 01:04:27 PM
Inspired by Carbonated. Here is hers: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=260608.0

I really love it in the pinstripe!

Mine is made from some fabric I had laying around. It is scrap from a corset I'm working on. (my 1st).

I think my pieces are a little lengthy considering I'm only 5'2
Wow..It looks like I have no shape from the front..haha.

It is also tied too tight in these. It's kind of hard to do. I put a zipper up one of the sides to make it a little easier.
Let me know what ya think (=

3  kimono style top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Pamcake1323 on: September 15, 2009 05:48:49 PM
I kind of like how it turned out. I plan to make another with some heavier fabric...and to make the top pieces a little longer. Then hopefully it won't do that funky thing in the middle.

Any other suggestions as to why it did that?

4  Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Pamcake1323 on: June 17, 2009 06:45:29 AM
You all have some great machines!! I especially lov ethe teal ones. I almost picked up a teal singer in a cabinet at a yard sale last year...but it didn't have the cord. and I wasn't sure how easy it would be to replace so I didn't get it. I really wish I would have!!

I did a bunch of research on this machine when I got it ..but I haven't messed with it since them. But...Now that I have time.... (= 

Singer 500A:

I also got a 403 A ?.. last year. It's in the garage. It's my favorite to look at but I have been slowly cleaning it up. It is covered in I don't know how many years of smoke.

Here is a Nelco  S 700. It is hard to find info on these! It's from Japan. It's a deluxe zigzag & was made to be a cross between Necchi and Elna.
This machine is soooo quiet!

My new to me serger (= My mother in law gaver her to me for my b-day. Threading and using her wasn't near as difficult as I anticipated!

My first machine..I learned to sew on this one. I got her last year for my b-day.. From my wonderful husband.  Nothing special but I love it.

5  Lots of Tutus. in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Pamcake1323 on: June 17, 2009 05:50:04 AM
I have a lot of nieces. The tutus were great gifts for them..even with their varying ages!
& Not only do they like them...so do the moms =)

These pics were taken on Easter. They thought it would be neat to have them all wear them together. I have no clue why I don't have a group shot Roll Eyes




Emily..(only pic I have)


Brooklyn..(was taken at Christmas)

A couple of tutus I made over the weekend. I think they are going to be used as part of a couple of halloween costumes?

6  tunic dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Pamcake1323 on: June 11, 2009 07:48:19 PM
Just finished this. I didn't think it would ever be done!
I actually wanted to embellish it but ...  I'm so over it. lol.

I think it looks good.. just not my style. I think it would look better with a different bust. I think I will try again ... *some other time*... LOL.

Thanks for looking (=

7  De Le Sac in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Pamcake1323 on: June 11, 2009 06:56:58 PM
This is the second one I have made using the tute from here on craftster.
I like this one much better. I can't find pics of the first one now..but that's ok. It turned out way too big. I'm not sure why but that happens to me a lot. /= I am goign to give the other one to my prego sister. She will probably wear it as a top (=

Link to tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307579.0

I like this one though. It's really comfy.

*I won't be wearing it with the plaid lounge pants (=

I plan to change the ribbon. Red was the only one I have that looked even close to right.. lol.

8  Dress to umm... Better dress. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Pamcake1323 on: June 10, 2009 11:03:52 AM
I took a before pic of this but now I can't find it. I can tell you that It was really big and it had sleeves. oH..the neckline was at my throat. lol.


* Please excuse the hair.. It's raining today*

Somewhat closer:

I took it in on the sides. chopped of the sleeves and the neckline.. and gathered the bust. Hope you like (=

The original plan was to cut it off to a shirt but I think I'll leave it like this for now. I think I like it.

9  Another summer top. Silky fabric this time. **Added Action Shots** in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Pamcake1323 on: June 09, 2009 10:18:40 AM
This top is made from the same pattern as the last. I'm so glad I didn't buy the pattern for this b/c it would be really easy to do without it.
I'm just learning to use patterns so I went with the easiest version.
The others have long sleeves and I hope to try that soon.  Grin

The fabric on this one doesn't drape as nicely as the last.. but I still like it.

Close-up of fabric:

Hope you like it & TFL (=

10  Breezy Summer Top. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Pamcake1323 on: June 08, 2009 03:29:31 PM
So..I had to take a break from unpacking and I made this quick top.
It's really comfy..made from a light, somewhat stretchy fabric.. That I think was perfect for this top.
I think I am going to replace the ribbon with  the same fabric as the top. ?

It still needs a bottom hem. I think I will keep the length though. (as much as I can).

Please excuse the mess. Things aren't organized yet. lol. Probably never will be in that room Roll Eyes
