1  Toddler Dress (with tutorial link) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by NewbieUK on: March 13, 2011 01:48:32 AM
So pleased with myself! This is my first completed clothing item.  I used fabric I already had for the bodice and picked up some red polycotton for the skirt. I need to aplique a chunky flower cut from the same fabric as the bodice onto the lower left of the dress I haven't done that as I've never aplique'd before and don't know how!  

Here's the tutorial I used:

Here's my dress and my more than willing model:

2  My first project completed! :) So happy with these hanging hearts in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by NewbieUK on: January 02, 2011 10:56:11 AM
Ok I know for you experts these are nothing at all, just a few minutes at a machine and voil!  But for me however, still a complete novice, this is an achievement!

Some little soft hanging hearts to go on my 2 year old daughters door handle.  Smiley  Stuffed with an old soft, stretchy t.shirt cut into strips!  The hanger is wide ribbon folded and stitched - I only had wide ribbon around.  I hand stitched the first one, then machined the other two.  My first real experiment with machining curves too and happy to discover I could just leave the needle in and rotate a bit!  Easy peasy.

So happy with these and my other half loves them too.  Now I'm going to use the same fabric to make a matching heart shaped cushion. That's got to be the same but bigger so should be easy enough.  

Thanks to my Mum for the Cath Kidston Sew book she got me for Christmas which provided fresh inspiration, and to the loan of the sewing machine Smiley
