1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Jeans for the spawn on: February 22, 2011 06:48:13 PM
I can't remember what pattern number I based these on.  I know it was a simplicity one, but I had issues with it as written.  The first one I made gave the child plumbers butt so I had to do some redrafting of the pattern to actually fit him.
The original pattern calls for patch front pockets, this time I altered the pattern to do more of a classic jean pocket.  The fabric was an upcycled pair of mans jeans I bought at goodwill (cost a whole $1.00 US).  The mid leg pockets were originally the back pockets of the jeans.
I was actually happy that I only broke 2 needles making this pair of jeans... (and happier still to discover a closer to my house then Joanns source of size 110 needles)

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Shirt for the spawn on: February 22, 2011 06:40:06 PM

I used Burda 9792.  I knew from other projects on the board that the instructions were not for beginners & I can see why.  It assumes that you have knowledge of shirt construction, so I would not recommend this pattern for a first shirt.

I did view C with two minor alterations- I made the "rolled up" sleeve part as a separate piece to match the collar & pockets and instead of using velcro on the pockets, I used buttons.
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / ugly upcycled jean quilt on: January 27, 2011 09:30:03 AM
I say ugly because I don't think there is a single "square" part in it- I'll admit to just winging it, but I also wanted something that I wouldn't get upset about if it got grass stains on, if the dog chewed it, etc.  It is meant to be a camping/ outdoor quilt.

The jeans were recycled from jeans that were no longer wearable (tears, holes, etc.).  The fleece is a faux tie-dye that I found in my moms stash.

4  New York / New York: West / Cheap fabric at FWS Elmwood location (Buffalo) on: September 18, 2010 03:23:30 PM
Just a heads up- FWS is clearing out a ton of fabric and is selling it for $1.00 a yard. 
5  New York / New York: West / Is anyone out there in Buffalo? on: February 02, 2007 06:38:41 PM
Or am I the only one?

6  New York / New York: West / Buffalo? Niagara Falls? on: January 03, 2006 10:43:01 AM
Anyone else in the Buffalo (and Niagara Falls) area?  I know I can't be the only one here...
