11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Sewing w/ the Grandkids !! on: April 10, 2011 07:55:07 AM
Had all 4 grandkids yesterday ( 7, 5, 2, & 2 ) it was a joy to try and sew with them LOL ( insert sarcasm here )

They all wanted shirts...except DGD #3 she wanted an entire outfit !

We got 2 of the 4 done and will do the other 2 today if my nerves and patience holds on long enough Smiley

First up is DGD #3 and her outfit.

The shirt - tshirt pattern, did rolled hem on the sleeves and the ruffles on the bottom. Giraffe applique using the same giraffe fabric as the sleeves and ruffles.

The pants - took a pair of DH's pants that didn't fit and just used the legs to cut the pattern that I made from another pair of her pants. Added the giraffe ruffles at the hem.

She's freshly potty trained so rather than mess around with zippers and buttons on the pants I just did them pull up to make bathroom runs easier for her Smiley

Next is DGD #1 - same tshirt pattern and methods, just different fabrics.

Modeling shot - I did a size 8 for her, but next time will definitely go with the 9. She's built real solid and beefy, I hate this this just "looks" small even though it's really not tight.

They had both just gotten out of bed, I made them model before they ran off and got their clothes dirty LOL

Please excuse the messy sewing/craft room. We were creating...not cleaning Smiley
12  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Embroidered Horse Shirt on: April 09, 2011 10:19:39 AM
I did this shirt last night for a personal swap I'm doing with KaoticKrafter, this is for her daughter. Used a basic t'shirt pattern I bought on Etsy. Size 5 - rolled hem on the sleeves and then I thought the length was just a tad short so I took an old adult t'shirt and used the bottom of it for a ruffle and neck on this one. Machine embroidered horse..and yeah I tried to put a tag in it, but well, I sort of put it in upside down so I just cut it out LOL

13  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Flip Flop Summer Dress on: March 31, 2011 09:58:25 AM

This was made this morning for DGD3 - although it's only in the 30s here today and they're calling for snow tonight  Huh  Shocked  She INSISTED she wear her new dress...so a tshirt underneath we have  Roll Eyes

Just simple shirred dress, rolled hem on top and bottom and then I took single fold bias tape stitched it flat and used that for the tie straps

14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Some new shirts and fleece pants :) on: March 30, 2011 04:34:09 PM
I've shown off  a few handbags I made recently and I'd hate for anyone to think I can only sew bags LOL So here's some other recent items I did this past week for the grandkids Smiley

1st up - Camo Fleece lounge pants for DGS

Camo fleece slippers to go with above lounge pants - he was not happy till he had both Smiley

Reusable snack bags - velcro closure and I lined them with vinyl for easy cleaning...wipe and go Smiley

It's a pretty nice size bag, 15" across the top, 10.5"x5" at the bottom and 10" deep with 10" straps

I cut out the outer fabric then popped it on the embroidery machine to do the skully swirl design in rose and green Smiley

Just whipped this up this morning for my middle granddaughter ! I did use a pattern, but modified it so much, it's really not a pattern anymore LOL

Just a simple tshirt pattern then instead of putting on a neck binding I did a rolled hem and shirred the neckline and sleeves. then put a lettuce edge on the hem Smiley

Please excuse the seriously cluttered craft/sewing room in the background !! C&C always welcome and appreciated.

Just finished this last night Smiley

I ADORE the fabric will be hard to part with this one ! LOL

It's a nice roomy bag. Measures 10" wide at the bottom, 13" wide at the top, 10" tall, and 4" across at the base so very, very roomy. Also has 3 inner pockets that go all along one side of the bag so they're a very nice size.

20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Middle Earth Map Coasters on: March 16, 2011 01:18:25 PM
I made these for thedish in the OWS this round. She received them today so now I can share them here with you Smiley

I took an image of a map of Middle Earth and resized it and cropped it until I got it to be 8x8 square. Once I printed it out I cut it into 4 equal squares of 4x4. Used Mod Podge to attach it to stone tiles and then let it dry, once dry I put another coat of mod podge on. All in all I think I have 5 coats of mod podge on there, and then 3 coats of a Krylon Clear Coat to seal it all in good. Cork on the back and we have a neat little map of Middle Earth...coaster style.
