1611  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / leg=new pincushion on: April 12, 2005 07:09:16 AM
Back story: I recently inherited a sewing machine from my great-grandma, and I had already set aside a sewing area, but now it's full of boxes and stuff. Rather than clean it off, I set my sewing machine (sans table) on the floor in front of the tv, and that's where I do my stuff. The foot pedal became the "knee pedal," etc.

So... The other night, I was sewing the strap of a tank top I'm reconstructing and pinned it like crazy because the material is a pain and likes to move on me. I set all this to the side as I worked on the other end of the tank. I just happened to move my leg, and set it on the strap as about six pins jabbed into my leg in a nice neat row.  Cry

I'm going to work on another one and I'll take pictures. It's too complicated for me to draw, and I made it a while ago. I'll try a simple one w/o pics.

Cut the bottom half off the hoodie, this will be the main compartment. Cut out a flap from the top half, and include a little bit of the top of the back too. It should be a rectangle, and it should include the hood.

Get whatever material will be your lining and make a basic pouch a little smaller than the main compartment. Now would be the time to add pockets to the inside, if you want to do that.

Trace the flap part onto the lining material and cut it out. Sew the bottom part of the hood shut (The part where you put your head through) and add a zipper if you want it. Put the lining and flap right sides together and sew them together, leaving the back part unsewn.Turn the flap right side out.

Cut the sleeves off and make them the way you want. Like I said, I sewed them so they were the same width all the way through instead of wider where they used to connect to the hoodie.

This is kind of tricky to describe, and not essential, so if you don't understand, you can do it however you want. Stretch one cuff over the other and hand-stitch the very end of the inside cuff to the seam where the outside cuff connects to the sleeve. Or you could do it the other way around. The way I did it, the outside cuff can be pulled back to show the inside cuff.

Arrange the flap and strap where you want them in the main compartment and then put the liner in.

I pinned it all so the unfinished edges were inside between the liner and hoodie and sewed around the edges, but I think you could work it so you don't see the stitches.

*shrug* hope this helps. I've been wanting to make another one, I just have to decide which hoodie to sacrifice. I'm a hoodie junky. My husband has one he doesn't like the way it fits, maybe I'll use that one.

Is it bunched like the front? Like, does the ribbon go through it?

yes; I love my Yasmin!

I don't carry a purse, and I like to keep all my cards and stuff together, so I wanted one that would fit in my pocket. I had one that came with a backpack but it wore out. My wallet fits my drivers' license, two check cards, two credit cards, my prescription card, Blockbuster card, and my Maurices punch card. Plus whatever cash I have at the time (usually none  Smiley)

We made lilies - cut hand shapes out of pastel cardstock and rolled them til the bottom of the hand shape was almost pointed, with a little hole. We taped them that way, and rolled the fingers back around a pencil so they were curly, and stuck a green pipe cleaner in the little hole for a stem. We didn't have terra cotta pots, so we used pretty blue disposable cups and tissue paper. The parents absolutely adored them.

I adore the yellow tank with the gromet tape. I've been making tank tops out of my too-big band shirts, and have just been copying off tanks I already own. I'm looking for different styles of tanks to make. I am a tank top addict. I can NOT wait til summer.
