1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ribbing fabric? on: May 24, 2015 06:40:10 PM
Personally, I'd say no.  But just because I made a top out of ribbing for my son once and it just didn't look right.  I'm picky though and it can depend on the ribbing.

Just saw this - it turned out awesome!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baymax Tie Dye Shirt on: May 22, 2015 08:37:05 AM

 My four-year-old and I did some tie-dye shirts for summer and I've discovered tie-dye isn't as straight forward as I expected. So after that, I went back and did a couple shirts on my own for him so he might have something a little more presentable to wear.   Anyway, he is a fan of Big Hero 6 and his favorite character is Baymax so I thought a Baymax tie dye would be fun.   First I freezer paper stenciled Baymax onto a white T-shirt with Tulip Cool Color Block,  which was supposed to act like a dye resist.   It really didn't work very well  as you can see in the picture below. Then I tie-dyed a swirl of colors that I thought my son would like .   This is how it turned out:

 Luckily, I had kept the template for Baymax so I reapplied the freezer paper stencil and used the bleach method this time.   Then I added the eyes with a black fabric pen.  Which resulted in this:

The bleach bled a little but he loves it.  Here is the Captain America shield shirt I also did for him, using a bleach freezer paper stencil for the star in the middle (also a Cool Color Block fail):

Love it!  I'm going to have to add this to the list of quilt blocks to try...

Stranger popping in.   Wink

We have had a couple flakers on this swap, but one had a real medical issue with her child & another was a new swapper.  I think I angeled for one and we got an angel for the other.  I always tried to get angels that were already in the swap.  Most of the ladies here have done this swap over & over, so the likelihood of flakiness is pretty low IMHO.  But it is always good to get some "new blood" in to mix things up.  The requirements say you must have successfully have completed one swap prior to joining this one, so maybe you can find a smaller swap to participate in first. 

Carolmb took over so I could go have a baby.   Grin  I had kind of settled on a round twice a year - spring & fall.  But it's up to her or whoever wants to take up organizing, since I have my hands full with the kid-o's.

Hi ladies - random off topic post to say I had baby Andrew about a month ago.  He was 8lb 10oz and he is already over 11 pounds. Smiley If you'd like to see a pic, PM me your personal e-mail.

I was hoping to get the front of the Japanese quilt put together since the sashiko is all hand sewing. But I don't know if that's going to happen before mid September...I must nest!   Grin
