1  Christmas blankets for my whole family! (img heavy) in Quilting: Completed Projects by catastrophe on: December 01, 2010 05:18:40 PM
Not going to be a cheapskate this year; so this is my progress on project x-MASS blankets:

Front and back, my cat Maya is underneath  Roll Eyes



Spontaneous top pattern from 4 random fabrics I had




Baby blanket for my Chiropractor's new son or daughter, she is finding out when she has it I guess.. So I went ahead and planned colors accordingly, for an Autumn Birth, either way.


Strange scrap blanket



That's mostly what I have completed so far! I plan on having 11 finished by christmas eve..  Undecided
Any comments or critiques are highly welcomed... I started hand-sewing in June, and in August started using a (early 90's) White sewing machine. Finally in October I bought myself a lovely Brother machine and now I'm sewing like the wind  Cheesy

2  Corset from Simplicity 2355 in Sewing Pattern Reviews by catastrophe on: December 01, 2010 05:00:53 PM
This is corset length A, from Simplicity 2355,
http://static.artfire.com/admin/product_images/thumbs/--30000--13217_product_1312994049_thumb_large.jpg

I have now started two others of this same pattern, I think I used the cutout size 6/8...


I am very pleased with the results although I didn't put complete edge trim around the top and bottom of the corset (still can't decide what to use!) aaand when I got to the point of lacing it up and wearing it in a little bit, I realized I have absolutely no proper lace to use... so I dressed it up with some silky rope just for the pictures. Any advice on what type of lacing to use, and where to buy?
Critiques very welcomed..

Here are the wings I bought and altered for the costume... (it came with the red jewels so I added the rest and put on the flower/ribbons) it looked wonderful together. I need to get a picture of me wearing the whole outfit.

I made 4 large pockets for the batting... so after washing and drying this it has become slightly like down comforter. I really like how that part ended up. No walking foot for me yet, this was an experimental batting experience

5  Scrap dress for costume; gibbous inspired in Halloween Costumes by catastrophe on: November 02, 2010 07:39:57 AM
So this is a Gibbous inspired costume-dress that I've started on... I wore this on halloween. I started with a very similar tanktop and skirt that I've sewed together,



On the dress I basted the part held together by safety pins..

Close up of skirt section,


Finished..

The back..


I'll update with images of me wearing it, with the wings I had. It's a shame I didn't get any pictures of me wearing it ON halloween!

6  Inspired Gibbous Halloween scrap dress roadblock in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by catastrophe on: October 17, 2010 04:41:46 PM
So this is a Gibbous inspired costume-dress that I've started on... I plan on wearing this on Halloween most likely; Only I've come to a roadblock. I have a very similar tanktop and skirt that I've sewed together,



On the dress I basted the part held together by safety pins..

Close up of skirt section,


So now it is a thigh length dress, I have this huge part of scraps that I've mended together, to sew onto the dress... my only concern is how to go about doing this the most efficient way. The wrap around section is splayed out at the tops and bottoms of it, so it can contour to the body. Am I best off pinning the whole thing while it's on me? (I don't have a mannequin) and basting sections, then sewing them accordingly?

Bought 3 of these $1 Target eye masks... this is like the only kind of needlework I've actually done... so I just beaded onto it, this was a dorm room gift for my cousin Smiley

8  Two blanket sides I finished today... in Quilting: Completed Projects by catastrophe on: October 10, 2010 06:59:10 PM
These are the first two "real quilt" designs I've ever started... Turned out as good as I had hoped; I really like where this is going.



And this is just one side, the other is 2/3 finished

3 Old towels into a rug.. this turned out to be a very messy project, there were little pastel towel bits everywhere. I am halfway through another, that is 2 black towels and one that was black/white
