11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / MY first dress!!! (Infinity dress) on: September 22, 2008 06:37:45 PM
Okay, so one night I decided to venture into the world of dress making. I am positive had I taped the night, you all would have gotten chuckled. I did enlist the help of a friend and my mom.  My friend helped me cut the fabric (It took two people! Plus I had to give my brothers rug a haircut too. haha), which by mistake ironically turned into making two dresses instead of one. Fun stuff! But then my mom helped me by fixing the sewing machine to sew my fabric correctly! haha (note to self, stretchy fabric is sucky to sew.) It turned out shorter than I had planned, but I intend on fixing that.

Well here it is, my first ever homemade dress. Why yes, it is an infinity dress. I will post more photos later of the different ways to tie it and if I ever get around to fixing the length!

Hope you like it and feel free to leave your opinion and tips!

12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Quillows and pillows make life so comfy. [Image Heavy] on: September 14, 2008 08:01:21 PM
Okay, so this is my first ever post of some of my crafts! These were made over last summer, but I ended up loving to quilt and I was so proud of these. I have made several other quilts and a million pillows, but they were given as gifts. And in case you don't know, a quillow is a quilt with pouch on one side that you can fold the quilt into and make a pillow! It's totally nifty, and just for giggles, the pouch also works well to keep your feet warm.  Wink

Here is the front of the quillow I made for my brother:


And when you open it, here is the front:


[[BTW, that is my lovely boyfriend doing the ninja peak]]

Now, here is the front of my quillow:


And opened, front:


(sorry, my bed kind of got in the way)

And here are some Nascar pillows I made for my dad:

Hope you liked them!! Feel free to leave feedback!!

Also, I just made my first dress (with a little help) and in the process of another, so when I get pictures of those, please be sure and check them out!!
