Thanks!  Yeah, I was a little nervous about making sure it came out alright, but it did.  And I've washed the thing since and it didn't fall apart, so win! : D

So a couple months ago I saw this old sweatshirt on my friend's couch--asked him if I could have it and he said sure.  Finally got around to making something of it in the last few days.  I originally meant to make it into a hoodie and based what I did off this lovely tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100217.0.  Wound up turning out quite differently (no hood, etc.) but I really like it and am quite proud of it--this was my first major clothing project ever and while there's definitely things I'd do differently next time, all in all I'm pretty pleased.  Thanks for looking!  Comments and constructive criticism welcome!

After!


(apologies for the blurriness)


the collar is probably my favorite thing, also pretty happy with the way the zipper turned out cause i'd never done one before





Thanks again for looking!

He is so so adorable!!  Dare I ask...would you be willing to post a tutorial?  I would love to make an elephant for my nephew (and maybe one for me too =D).
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / first project post, a bit pic heavy? on: February 14, 2009 02:41:46 PM
Here are a few things I've recently made:





I made this baby blanket for my nephew-to-be (any day now!).  It's definitely the most complicated thing I've made thus far and while there are things I could improve upon if I made another, I'm very pleased with how it turned out.  The pattern I used can be found here:

http://www.innerchildcrochet.com/patterns/starry_starry_night.php

I used Lily Sugar n Cream instead of the Red Heart Baby (I just like cotton yarn better, and I feel like natural fibers are better for babies--just my opinion though).





I made this case for carrying random stuff in my purse like makeup brushes and stuff.  Didn't use a pattern--just hdc'd until I had a rectangle the size I wanted (my case is 24 hdc/row, which worked out to about 8 1/2 inches finished), added sides for depth (4-5 hdc/row), then sewed on a button.  Might make another in single crochet for my drawing pencils and pens that I carry around.

Suggestions and critique welcome--thank you for looking!

This is really spiffy looking--I like how simple it is because you can change the way it looks so easily by wearing it with different kinds of tops/belts/shoes.  I'm pretty new to the sewing machine game but I'm quite inspired to try making something like this.

This is out-of-control-amazing.  I am very envious of your skills--the placement of the roses is great.
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / good book/guide on sewing? on: February 02, 2009 01:53:45 PM
Hello all.  So, here's my deal: I have some experience hand sewing, mostly repairing and hemming things.  However, I got a sewing machine for Christmas and would really like to create some more complicated items (I have plans for a quilt and I'd like to do some clothes, especially after seeing some of the genius stuff on Craftster).  My problem?  I have no idea where to start in terms of learning technique, basic terms, etc.  Topstitching? I kinda know what that is.  Interfacing?  No idea.  Serging...type of stitch, right?  Basically, I'm looking for a good thorough guide that will help me pick up the basic skills that I'll need to make the things I want to make.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks a bunch in advance  Cheesy

Hello!  This is actually my first post on Craftster though I've been lurking for awhile.  On the off chance that this thread still gets checked, yes please, there should definitely be an Erie Craftster gathering of sorts.  That'd be super spiffy!  I'm in Fairview if anyone is around there.
