11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cute little girls summer dress on: June 12, 2008 04:30:29 PM
So I have been hording vintage patterns and fabric for a while now and I realized it has gotten out of hand. So what better way to de-stash and curb the hording....making stuff.

I made this one today. I really hate cutting out patterns. that takes more time then sewing but what are you going to do?

Anyhow here it is..


And the back...


And I even made matching bloomers...


Too bad it would be wrong for a 30 something to wear that around town....I love kids clothes and just the fact I can't wear them Sad
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fuzzy bear panta on: November 02, 2006 10:23:44 PM
OK so I'm not sure if this is the right place but really wasn't sure where to post.

Anyhow I wanted to make a cute little hat like thing but I don't like to wear full hats that much. I love the pantas but wanted something fun so I got some fur andmade a little fuzzy bear panta for me Smiley. It was fast and easy to make (just made it on the fly) In this pict I have it tied behind my pigtails but if I tie it under my chin it actually becomes earwarmers as well (wasn't planning on that but I was happy)

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Name bracelet on: September 29, 2006 11:17:16 PM
Well I decided to take a break from fiber arts for a while and decided to go for some beading. I had a bracelet that I made myself when my son Vincent was born and wore 24/7 till it broke. Anyhow I was cleaning out and found that I still had the beads tucked away and went to work. Of course I had to go hunt for new beads since I wanted the look a little nice this time.
I got my inspiration from this site:
http://www.elisailana.com
And this is the bracelet that I was using for inspiration...



But seeing as I couldn't and wouldn't pay over $200 for a bracelet I went to work trying to recreate it.
I found a new bead shop in the process so that is always nice. The old place that I went to was like a closet, you couldn't see anything without asking and it was the size of my bedroom. The new place has a coloring table for the kids (big bonus) and everything is out so you can see it.

And here is the final version of what I made, at a mere fraction of the price (about $30).





I think I might try another with bigger name blocks if I can find them but for now i'm happy how it turned out.
14  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Ghoul scout sash on: September 18, 2006 03:13:52 PM
Hi there I know there has been talk on here how several people are thinking of being "Ghoul Scouts" so I thought I would post my sash from a few years back...maybe give some ideas.

Here is the whole thing


Then close ups of what the patches say




The #'s and stars are just from Joann's fabric and then the patches I just made by drawing on stiff interfacing with perminate markers. and then just ironed them on. At the time that was the best and easiest way for me.
15  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My kittyville...YEA! on: September 04, 2006 10:19:23 PM
OK so I know there are tons of this hat on here but it was sooo darn cute so I had to give it a try too. I did leave off the ear flaps and added some pink on the ears. This is my first pattern that i have done so all in all I think it turned out well. I really like it and next time I think I will alter it some (it seems a bit tall for my head) and make wider ears (maybe 16 stitches) Maybe I just did it wrong...who knows.
Anyhow I'm just really excited that I actually made something other than a scarf Smiley Now on to the next project...that I have some confidence.


16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Seed stitch woes :( on: August 27, 2006 03:17:38 PM
OK so I have been trying to work on the kittyville hat or at least get it going but for the life of me I can't get the seed stitch I mean I can knit some and have no issues doing the basic stitches but this is driving me bonkers.
I even moved to working on straight needles thinking maybe I would "get it" better but I must be doing something wrong. I cast on and then knit one stitch then purl a stitch and when I get to the end of the row it is just a big jumbled mess. I don't even know how I would go on to knit the next row....everything is crossed over and a mess Sad I even tried to do just a regular rib stitch but i cant do it....in theory I get it but am I missing something or doing something that is making it turn out like this? OR am I doing it right and just not getting anywhere?
I am just at a loss and am about to pull out my hair....
Any help would be GREAT! thanks!
17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My Harry Potter jeans on: August 21, 2006 09:16:47 PM
I have way too many pair of blah jeans. So this is my first embroidery project (aside from stuff that I had done as a kid.) There are definite flaws and it was a learning experience for what works and what doesn't. But I think over all it turned out cool. I mean I like it and I don't think that many people are going to look at my butt anyhow Tongue
18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Dark transfer issues on: August 06, 2006 12:33:27 AM
I had tried some dark transfer paper and it ironed on fine and everything but then the instructions said to "set" it within 24 hrs by washing inside out and then tumbling dry. Anyhow I did that and when it came out it was all crinkly and there were parts of the image that were comming off at the creases and what not.....is this a "normal" thing or so you think it was just a fluke? I want to try it again but at the same time I don't want to mess up any more shirts.

thanks
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Double ended needle question. on: August 05, 2006 06:43:08 PM
OK so I'm new to knitting and after knitting one successful scarf I figured I would try my luck on a hat. However I started on a circular and love it but now as I am reducing I need to move to double ended needles but I cant find size 11 at any local stores...10.5 but no 11. Do they even make them this big?
Also I have checked out several books from the library and they show how to set it up for DE needles but they don't really know "how" It seems that you would have 3 separate sections...am I lame and is there a way that they connect?
Any help is appreciated as I am at a stand still now Sad
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / HP scarf...my first project on: August 03, 2006 09:16:33 PM
So I didn't think that i could do it so my hubby challenged me. I got it done in 6 days (I thought it would take a month at least) there are some flaws but heck it is my first thing I have made aside from little squares (that is why he challenged me...he was tired of squares all over)
Anyhow here it is.
