2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Single signature notebook (with "tutorial") on: October 18, 2007 07:12:39 AM
So, I was stuck for a pretty notebook, and my camera was to hand, so here is a little step-by-step photostory...
I'm going to start by giving away the ending:

Thanks Scarfninja!

I used plastic double pointed needles (I think they were 4.5mm, so not too tiny!)
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Sew U shirt in retro floral on: September 26, 2007 09:02:29 AM

Well, here's my take on the shirt in Built By Wendy's Sew U book.
I got pretty annoyed with the instructions (spread through the book, unclear on the seam allowances...) but I made it in the end!

I cut a size larger than I usually would (having read it runs small), which was a bit of a mistake. I ended up taking it in a load at the waist to stop it drowning me, which left the bust fitting a bit weirdly.

Overall I'm a bit "meh" about the whole thing, which is a bit unreasonable- I have actually worn the shirt quite a bit, and I was only really hoping for a wearable muslin, and a practice run at shirt making!

Meh or not, here's a few more pics:

(That last one's my fave- it shows off the buttons- from my Grandmother's button box- and the fabric- from the sale shelf in my fave shop, where it had been waiting for me for 25-30 years!!)

Sweet!
That's crazy talk fabric- it wouldn't have occurred to me to cut it like that, but it WORKS. Go the umbrella skirt! (and boo to the not fitting)
