1  Gathering Leaves Shawl in Crochet: Completed Projects by LittleLaura on: August 12, 2015 04:27:42 PM
I crocheted this back in 2010 but I never posted it here. I still wear this shawl in the spring/fall and I've taken good care of it so it's still in decent shape. It took a few months from start to finish. The hardest part was the brown edging. I had to do each row individually until I was past the regular pattern in green. SO MANY ENDS TO WEAVE! In the end though I think it was worth all the extra effort since I'm happy with the result.

2  Simple Summer Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: July 05, 2015 09:40:05 AM
I had this pretty summery fabric so I made myself a little skirt. It was super simple to make, I didn't use a pattern or anything. I just cut the piece and attached the elastic. Nothing better than a project that comes together in an hour Cheesy

3  Pattern Help: 1950's Inspired Dress in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by LittleLaura on: July 03, 2015 05:06:29 PM
I love all these super cute 1950's dresses I've seen online lately. I bought some really cute fabric that I think would be good to make something vintage/flirty. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for dress patterns where the top is similar to the one in the picture. Thanks!

4  Turquoise and Black Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: June 28, 2015 09:47:18 AM
I used fabric from two failed dresses to make this dress. This dress is super comfy, my only complaint is that the straps don't exactly fit how I wanted them to so I'll probably always wear this with a cardigan. It's not the fault of the pattern, more the fault of cheap fabric and messy sewing Cheesy The pattern I used for the top was this one from Lekala http://www.lekala.co/catalog/dresses/5196#model The circle skirt was created using the circle skirt calculator here http://byhandlondon.com/pages/circle-skirt-app

5  Mountains in the Sunset in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by LittleLaura on: April 23, 2015 07:27:35 PM
This was painted using acrylics on a 16X16 canvas board. I had forgotten how relaxing it was to just sit and paint since it had been a few months since I'd taken the time to do it.

6  Black Dress with Bow Collar in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: March 24, 2015 04:14:43 PM
I've been in love with the dress patterns on Lekala.co so when I saw this pattern I had to make it http://www.lekala.co/catalog/dresses/4368#model. It was incredibly easy to put together and since the size is custom, it fit perfectly.

The fabric I used was an embossed suede. It was fun to work with and it's super comfy to wear.

I found this old Batman sheet at my Salvation Army and decided to make a dress out of it. The top is made from this pattern http://www.lekala.co/catalog/dresses/5199#model and the skirt was made using this awesome circle skirt calculator http://byhandlondon.com/pages/circle-skirt-app.

8  Paisley Chiffon Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: June 03, 2012 02:27:48 PM
I was looking for a quick project to do one evening with some fabric that I didn't know what to do with. I decided to make a simple empire waist dress using a cotton/spandex blend (the lining) and some printed chiffon. I finished the whole thing in an hour or so. Yay for quick projects!

9  Wishing For Summer Sundress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: January 24, 2011 04:28:35 PM
It is so cold up here in Nova Scotia!  What a perfect time to make a sundress  Undecided  This is my first time using elastic thread and I really enjoyed it.  I used this tutorial  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252608.0 but left out the flounce.  I still have enough fabric to add it in if I want but I think I like it without.  I really enjoyed making this dress and I had it done within a few hours.  Now if only the nice weather would get here so I can wear the damn thing  Tongue

10  Quilted Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: January 16, 2011 12:58:06 PM
So, I have a mild (read: major) obsession with StumbleUpon and one day came across this tutorial for a quilted skirt http://www.crapivemade.com/2010/06/tumbler-skirt-tutorial.html.  This happened to coincide with two boxes of fabric sent to me by my mom and grandmother.  Coincidence?  I think not  Cheesy  And thus a quilted skirt was made!

Apologies for the messy floor in the pictures  Roll Eyes
