91  Soft soled toddler shoes from upcycled suede pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by nikschaf on: July 26, 2009 03:19:49 PM
Hi all,

I'm so happy with this latest project because I sewed these sweet shoes out of some horrendously ugly 1980's suede pants from the thrift store. I should have taken pics of the awful pants before I cut them apart, but imagine a really high waist and back pockets that were way higher than they should have been. I can imagine the oversized Bill Cosby sweater, mall hair, and green mascara that likely rounded out the ensemble.

Anyhow, I got the suede pants for 99 cents, specifically for cutting them apart. I used the free DD minimoc pattern , and lined the insoles with felted lambswool from a never-worn (tags still attached) Ralph Lauren sweater, also from the thrift store. Altogether I'd say these shoes cost me about $1.50 in materials. Not bad!!

Here's a link to the awesome pattern: http://darlingdiapers.com/SDminimocfinal2.PDF

92  Veggie Love Triangle!! in Needlework: Completed Projects by nikschaf on: June 05, 2009 01:46:00 PM
Couldn't resist this torrid tale of unrequited love, violence and passion amongst veggies.  Found the vintage transfers on Hoop Love on Flickr.  I sewed the napkins from an old flannel sheet.

The lettering, while wonky, is not quite as bad as it looks in the photos.  I think the fabric was bunched up and I didn't realize it.  I'm trying to embrace the "primitive" quality of the work.

93  First Project Post -- Silly Fruit Cloth Napkins in Needlework: Completed Projects by nikschaf on: June 03, 2009 05:38:07 PM
I took up embroidery a couple of months ago, and found so many patterns I love in the Hoop Love group on Flickr, but I couldn't imagine needing dozens of tea towels.  So...upcycled buttery soft flannel sheet becomes silly fruit cloth napkins!  Thanks for looking!
