1  Vest and Bolero in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by CaveWomanCrafts on: January 01, 2010 08:44:49 PM
I posted this dress in the restructured area bit ago, but I made a bolero so I could cover up my back in the chilly weather. 
Since I had a new outfit for new years I thought I would make my man something nice. His vest was made from a pattern I threw together based on another vest he had (the other one was way too big so I had to do lots of adjusting).
I think he looks so handsome I've begun designing other ones he would wear on a more casual/normal basis.    Grin
The vest has two front pockets.  I made the buttons and handkerchief using the lining fabric. 

On to the pics!!!!!!!

C&C welcome and appreciated!
Thanks for looking!! Kiss

2  Duvet cover to gym bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by CaveWomanCrafts on: December 20, 2009 05:20:02 PM
So my sister wanted a gym bag for xmas and I didn't have the best fabric for it, but I think this will do. 
My serger is out of commission right now so I had to use bias tape on the inside...I'm not great with bias tape!!!!

Anywho, I think it came out alright.  I made up the pattern as I went thinking about what my sister requested...pockets and zippers. 

I hope you like it and C&C welcome

thanks for looking!

3  Crazy quilt!!!! in Quilting: Completed Projects by CaveWomanCrafts on: December 20, 2009 05:15:10 PM
My first crazy quilt!  It's for my niece for xmas.  My niece is only 1 so that's why I chose this quilt since it has a lot of bright colors and things to look at.  Smiley  I'm very proud of this quilt; I would say it's definitely my best yet. 
I used this tutorial and just left out the applique. 

Well, on to pictures!!!!!

C&C welcome and appreciated! 
Thanks for looking

4  Scarf Dress - Pencil Skirt Combination in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by CaveWomanCrafts on: November 27, 2009 08:44:34 PM
Hello fellow craftsters!  I'm very excited to present my version of the scarf dress/pencil skirt combination.
It took me about two hours to complete.  
I used these two links as general guides/inspirations...Thank you so much for these tutorials!!!!!

The skirt is made from black work pants I've had for a while but never wore; they're a stretchy material and almost shiny.  The scarf is one my mother gave to me and have always wanted to use it for something!  I have yet to hem it but ran out of black thread.  I used navy blue to sew the scarf down.  I hope it isn't too noticeable.  Smiley
(sorry for the sideway shots!  I forgot to rotate them)

The best part is I don't have to wear a bra!  I have a size D cup but since the scarf wraps all the way around I'm all covered up...I may be a bit saggy but boy do I feel free!

5  Little jumper in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by CaveWomanCrafts on: October 21, 2009 10:06:26 PM
My niece's first birthday is coming up and I decided to make her a jumper.  I think it's going to be a bit big since I based it off of something that would fit a 2 year old, but my beautiful niece is a big girl so I think it will work.  And if not she'll grow into it!   Cheesy

I hope you like...

It's made from an old pillow case and some red corduroy.  Now I just have to ship it to her.

6  Re: Sewing Tutorial - Triangle Fold Coaster in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by CaveWomanCrafts on: October 21, 2009 09:58:05 PM
I really enjoyed making this!  I had really small pieces of fabric so my triangles aren't so good, but I like it anyway.  I think I'll add some thread or something to turn it into an ornament. 
Thanks for the tutorial!!!
I gotta work on my photography skills.
