11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Black Dotty Apron on: October 02, 2010 06:48:17 AM
So I made an apron for excess fabric I had lying around my home. It took me about 4 and a half hours to make it from scratch. I searched around on the internet and didn't find any patterns I really like the look of so I just sketched the basic pattern shape onto a big piece of paper from my art apron.

My basic hemming skills -

Originally, I was also going to add a pocket and pleats to the apron, but I thought for my first apron, this would be a good place to stop. My sewing machine started to act up after about 2 hours as well (I think it would have been too annoying to try adding more onto it probably).
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My accidental Franken-heart on: November 28, 2009 07:04:01 AM
I was trying to make a dodecahedron ball, but in the 'early' morning I managed to misplace one of the pentagons. Seeing as I could not be bothered (still tired) to try and find my quick-unpick from wherever my friend put it last, I decided to keep hand sewing it together. I call this creation my Franken-heart because the only thread I had at my desk was a pale green and my fabric was white and now the green thread is showing through.

(P.S. This is my first post on Craftster and also, I put this here instead of Stitch and Botch because I think it turned out well)
