21  Men's Blazer in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bluwave06 on: August 09, 2009 12:55:40 PM
Ok, so this one was my first venture into menswear. I used a burdastyle pattern.
It really looks better in person, I don't have a male model or dressform to use so my dressform has to do. There are Rhinestones along the collar and fully lined. It is made with 100% cotton black twill and 65% Polyester 35% black cotton lining.



What do you think?

22  Infant Dress *3 IMG* in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by bluwave06 on: July 09, 2009 04:34:12 PM
I made this from a pattern here: http://snazzlecraft.blogspot.com/2009/04/free-8-24-month-dress-pattern-finally.html

I usually make clothes for adults but had been wanting to make some girl clothes as a few of my friends had baby girls. So, I went on to make this, I will have to say though I am going to make tons more as they were actually quite fun to make and turned out so adorable.

I used velcro for the straps instead of buttons, topstitched the seams as well as serged them and used a rolled hem (which has become my new obsession).

24  Upholstery samples..What to do with? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by bluwave06 on: June 23, 2009 09:36:22 AM
Ok, so a couple months ago they had  a boy scout sale and needless to say I knew exactly what I was going for on free day. I was shocked to see that they still had the rack full of upholstery samples nice size ones too of La-z-boy fabrics. I have two plastic tubs full of them and no idea what to do with them. (It was hysterical you should have seen the look on my dad's face when he saw two cardboard boxes overflowing Cheesy)

I am a seamstress so sewing I can do. Anybody have ideas?

This is a small sample of what I have:

26  I am addicted....3 new hats *Img heavy* with pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by bluwave06 on: May 23, 2009 10:22:47 PM
As summer is starting, I decided to try my hand at crocheting some hats. I finished the first sample the other day but wasn't all to happy with the outcome so I tweaked the pattern a bit and added flowers.

 The pink one is for me and the other two are for friends. It took approx. 4 hours per hat, less than a skein and I finished two just today and added the flower to the blue one. I made up a pattern as I went and is fairly easy. I only used double and single crochet stitches and now I am addicted. I still have tons of yarn left over to make tons more but I think I will take a break for a day or two as my hand is aching. But onto the pics...


What do you think? My friend has yet to see hers as she is on vacation.

Blue cap: Made with a brushed yarn, 100% Acrylic





Orange: Made with another brushed 100% Acrylic yarn





Pink: Pink Acrylic and wool rich: acrylic, wool, polymide blend





If any one would like the pattern, just let me know and I will post it.
Thanx for looking!

***Only use this round if you require it to be smaller, otherwise skip this round and move to Rnd 14.
Rnd 14-15: Ch 1 dc ea st of each round joining when you get to the end of each round. Fasten off.

Brim:

** I have noticed that my instructions here are a little off in the counting of the stitches, but trust me it does work out.[ Just make sure that you have three stitches at the end of each round, these are for the sc dec next 2 and sc last st(s).]  
Ch 1 dc next 26
Rnd 1: Ch 1 turn. Sc in front loops of the next 25
Rnd 2: Ch 1 turn. Sc dec next 2, sc next 5, 2sc in next, sc next 8, 2 sc in next, sc next 5, sc dec next 2, sc last
Rnd 3: Ch 1 turn. Sc dec next 2, sc next 20, sc dec next 2, sc last
Rnd 4: Ch 1 turn. Sc dec next 2, sc next 4, 2sc next st, sc next 8, 2 sc next, sc next 4, sc dec next 2, sc last
Rnd 5: Ch 1 turn. Sc dec next 2, sc next 16 or 18, sc dec next 2, sc last
Rnd 6: Ch 1 turn. Sc dec next 2, sc next 3, 2sc next, sc next 8, 2 sc next, sc next 1 or 3, sc dec next 2, sc last. Fasten off.
2nd part of brim:
Join yarn in back loop of 1st st of the first part of brim.
Rnd 1: sc back loops of next 25
Rnd 2-6: repeat rnds 2-6 above
Fasten off.
To join the brims together: start at one corner and sc all around both brims at the same time. When you reach the other corner of the brim, fasten off.
Finish off any loose threads.

Rosette: S (M,L)
Ch 17 (35, 53) join to form a ring. Make sure to leave a long enough tail to be threaded through center to close the ring a bit. [ this is done after you are finished with everything]
Rnd 1: Ch 1 34 (70, 106) dc in ring, join in first dc.
Rnd 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), 5 dc in first st * sc next st, 6 dc in next st Repeat from * until you reach the first st. and sc the st. Fasten off.
Now take the tail in the middle and thread through the center(so when you get back to where you started, you can pull the thread and it will bring the ring closer together.) now all that is left to do is attach to where you want it to be on the hat and you are finished.

If you need any visuals I will be posting a photo tutorial as well, but for now here is the written form. Sorry if some of the instructions are a little confusing, this is my first time making up a crochet pattern. I am usually a seamstress, so this was a new learning experience for me.

27  My new Summer cap...My 1st crocheted wearable!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by bluwave06 on: May 22, 2009 07:53:30 AM
So, I mainly post in the sewing forum but I wanted to try my hand at crocheting something wearable. I started out following directions I found online, but was forced to scratch that and make up my own pattern. I think overall I did a good job for my first wearable crocheted item.

The hat is double crocheted and took four hours and less than a skein of yarn.

What do you think?

28  Pink and Silver Anklet in Beads: Completed Projects by bluwave06 on: May 20, 2009 12:32:55 PM
It has been awhile since I really posted anything, so I finally made something to get me back into the designing process. I am so glad summer vacation is here I have time to create. Perfect for summer, I made an anklet. 
I had fun with my little photoshoot, as I finally made myself a light box and I can't believe I didn't think of one sooner.
