1  Thrifted Floral Sheet Baby Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by sead on: April 10, 2007 12:01:22 PM
This dress was made using the same pattern as the pink patchwork one I made, I really am in love with this pattern right now.  I was worried the sheet would be too see-through, but the top facing and interfacing makes it just right.  (You can just barely make out the line in these photos.)

Button Detail:


I used 1" shell buttons again, I just think they're so pretty on little girl clothes.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

2  Pink Patchwork Baby Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by sead on: April 09, 2007 02:58:44 PM
This is the first dress/jumper/romper I've made for my first baby girl, due in June.  Yay!!!  (I have boys.)  It was so simple, and I love it.  I already have fabric lined up for 3 or 4 more.

Front:


Back:


And detail of the buttons (I've finally mastered the buttonhole feature on my sewing machine!):


I used coral colored, 1" shell buttons.  I'm hoping they stand up to the washing machine (turned inside out, on the gentle cycle), because with 3 little kids, I don't do handwashing. Roll Eyes

Any and all comments/questions welcomed.

I really love these.  The last cap is knit, but the fun stuff on the side is crocheted so I'm including here.  Thanks for having a look-see!

Here's a sweater I made using this pattern:

It was super easy, and quick, and I'm already planning to make more in different yarns.  (This one is Homespun.)

And some fairytale finger puppets taken from here:

Fun projects to pass the long, cold, winter days.  Smiley

6  6 Flapper Inspired Cloches in Crochet: Completed Projects by sead on: January 12, 2007 04:29:20 PM
I made these some time ago and just never got around to posting them.  They're all made on the fly, I work better without patterns.



(Insanely crappy lighting on this one.)










Thanks for looking!

7  Super Easy, Super Cute Yo-Yo Button Flower Houseshoes in Shoes: Completed Projects by sead on: January 12, 2007 03:54:00 PM
These are cheapie dollar store terrycloth houseshoes (like $3), the kind with the little bows on the front.

I took the bows off with a seam ripper and sewed on some little fabric yo-yo's.  (I made a smaller red one for the second shoe, but I like the way it looks with only one yo-yo.) 

Lastly, I added a couple of plastic, shank style vintage buttons, and voila, super cute houseshoes!

8  What's purple, pink, green, has silver sequins, eyelet trim & beaded handles? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sead on: November 09, 2006 03:08:31 PM
This bag!

I originally made this for a Red Cross Benefit Auction that never got off the ground.  Sad







Let's see...

The exterior is home decor. fabric, most likely from Joann's or the like.

The interior is a thrifted sheet.

The interior pocket is trimmed with silver sequin trim, it looks like a zipper, but it's not.

I interfaced the whole she-bang with pellon craft interfacing.

The handles are removable (Though I'm not sure why you'd ever remove them) plastic beads on silver hardware.

And the pink eyelet trim only goes across the top front of the bag, because that's all I had left.

Thanks for checking it out.  Smiley

9  Hi-Fi Technicolor Dream Bag or Bag of a Hundred Different Motifs and Colors in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sead on: July 18, 2006 12:50:20 PM
I've been feeling more experimental lately.  Here's one of the results:











I'm really happy with it.  It has a simple circular velcro closure and the exterior strap and interior fabric are made from an old pillowcase I picked up while thrifting.  Hooray for repurposing!

Thanks for checking it out.  Smiley

10  Octopus, Planets, Patchwork, and Floral Totes made from Felted Wool Sweaters in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sead on: June 22, 2006 06:00:15 PM
I made all 4 of these from 3 sweaters I picked up at the Salvation Army a few months back.  (And I still have quite a bit of felted wool left.  Smiley)













This one was featured on Etsy's home page back in April  Grin :













Thanks for looking! Smiley
