1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Fourth of July Dresses on: October 04, 2009 04:59:31 PM

I made these dresses for my ex-fiance's nieces.
His sister had the idea, and asked me if I minded making them.
They were really simple.

I did a sort of accordion fold with the flag skirts, sewing the right sides together,
and then, after that, I sewed the blue top to them.
The straps were adjustable, with several button holes, and buttons on each side, which ended up STILL being too big for them. haha.

But, after that, his sister drew stars on to the tops with pencil and traced over it with white fabric marker. So, I think they came out really quite well.
And little girls are definitely much easier to dress than larger people. Haha.

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Amazing King Size T-Shirt Quilt on: May 26, 2009 01:03:17 PM

For Christmas a couple years back, my older sister bought me this amazing book called Generation-T - 108 Ways To Transform A T-Shirt. And there are soooo many different things to do and my favorite, and probably the most difficult, was the T-Shirt Quilt. It was really cool, because you need about 25 t-shirts, and you make a 7 X 7 Layout, and then you use a king size sheet for the backing, and then add batting if you really feel the need, but, if you don't it's pretty floppy.

So, I cut up a bunch of old graphic tees that I had lying around, because for some reason, I don't like getting rid of hilarious graphic tees that I bought back in high school, so, it really worked! And, I've done every part except sewing it ALL to the sheet and then adding batting.

I think what I'll end up doing is adding the batting and adding yet another king size sheet in a cool color so that it will contrast in a cool way, so, the picture above is pretty much just an idea, and when I finish, I'll post it, because mine will be kick ass Smiley
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Hide-A-Way Purse on: May 26, 2009 12:46:12 PM
I have yet to perfect this design but, I really really liked the idea when I thought of it.
I decided to sew two pieces of fabric together in a purse-like manner.
And sew one inside of the other, but instead of sewing the inner purse fully to the outer purse, I would only sew it at the bottom, and then attach buttons at the tops, so it would hide it.
If any has any cool ideas to help out, I'm definitely open to suggestion!

I haven't uploaded any pictures yet, but hopefully when I make it my own, and really perfect the design, then I will be able to do so.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
