My dog, Ayres, loves to pull & tug & chase, I saw some fleece tugs at the pet store. Fleece rope/tugs are better than real rope because you don't have to worry about them swallowing threads blah, blah, blah.
They're not overly expensive, but I already had everything at home, so here's what I made (and of course you need action shots )
It is perfectly square but the photos are off. I do need to make a few adjustments when I do the next one. I want to switch the money pocket to the other side and move the plastic cards to behind the cell.
A friend of mine has two adorable girls; one need a Princess Costume and the other needed a cozy Fleece Jumper. I normally sew purses for fun, but figured I'd give the clothes a go. After A LOT of swearing and some seam ripping, I finally finished! I'm really pleased with how they turned out; I haven't made clothes in YEARS
The Princess dress has a matching cape. The dress is a combo of 3 different Simplicity patterns with some modifications on top of that. I drafted the pattern for the cape.
I LOVE Bento boxes & wanted to get two for my children. I found some that I had to have, but they didn't come with insulated bags like traditional lunch kits and my children both needed that for school. So I made one
This one is my son's. My daughters is the opposite side of the oil cloth, a retro flower pattern.
It's been ages since I hit the fabric stash, but my 5 year old daughter needed a backpack for school. I made my own pattern, but can't say I would make it the same way again. I have blisters from sewing in the zipper portion and I used my machine
Anyway, it went over so well! I can be her hero for a few more years
I've been trying to find the perfect "interfacing". I've tried quite a few things and have found one that works GREAT. It's Aida Cloth. The very stiff material used to crossstitch on. It has to be sewn on, but a quick zig-zag stitch around the edge takes no time. because the surface is a little rough, it "grabs" onto the outside fabric and you don't have to worry about shifting.
