71  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Knit sheets make fast clothes! on: April 02, 2008 07:10:19 PM
I was intrigued by this challenge because I was sure that anything that was made would look like it was made from a sheet...boy, have things changed!

I found a full set of jersey sheets at a discount store for $9.99.  I barely used half of the top sheet to make a fun summer dress.

I used Simplicity 4577, but since it was a knit fabric, I left off the zipper and serged all of the edges--talk about a FAST and easy dress!  No hand sewing at all!

I added decorative stitching on the piece that goes around under the bust just to disguise some extra pounds that I am trying hard to lose before summer!

Photo courtesy of my electronics challenged hubby...I have more photos but I am having computer issues...I wanted to be sure I posted before the deadline!

This was fun and I encourage everybody to join these challenges for some fun and to sew "outside the box"!

Thanks for looking!

P.S. I have plenty of sheet left to make some PJ bottoms!
72  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Archive of Featured Projects for Clothing for Kids! on: January 29, 2008 10:31:28 AM
I have seen some pretty fabulous items here and, why should just the "big" kids get featured?

Help me out here:  if you spot something tremendously fabulous in the KIDS Clothing Section, pop me a PM or hit the "Rocks" button and I will check it out!  

Featured items will be placed here for all to enjoy!

Thanks to Kymy for this suggestion! You guys make Craftster what it is, so keep those suggestions coming!

I have been neglecting the Kids Projects for way too long--I peek at the projects and make some comments, but with so many new posts, and so many active members on this Board, it is high time I start featuring some of you and your projects!!

With that being said, this is my choice today...

This is a real sheepskin coat made by veri for her daughter.  First of all, how many sheepskins have you ever sewn with? ha ha I can't even imagine!  The details of the coat are fabulous--the hood, the cuffs, the trim down the arm...and the pics are of a lovely family in real life... so, I present veri and her wonderful family --and the sheepskin coat!  Take a look and keep those projects and suggestions coming!



Don't you love a girl with attitude?  No wonder--this outfit totally combines the best of a classic grey suiting with girly pink details!  I think I love it as much as mom and daughter do! (09/03/08)
73  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Posting Pics from Designers--A big NO NO on: September 26, 2007 05:35:47 PM
Hi everyone!  How exciting it is to use a designer outfit to inspire your own creation!  This area of the Clothing Board is really fun, but also, the most difficult to moderate. I would appreciate your cooperation by reminding each other gently or reporting to mods...

Just a refresher:  You cannot post a direct picture of the outfit...it might be copyrighted or belong to a photographer, etc.  You can only post a link...You can only post pics that belong to you...

Read about it in the etiquette section of this site.

So, if you see pics disappearing or posts going to Limbo, you now know why!  Wink
74  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Using up my Kimono Scraps Bag! on: August 07, 2007 04:33:47 PM
I collect kimono fabrics and have tons of scraps. My favorite thing to do with them is make bags!  Here is one I made for batgirl!

Side one:

Side two:

The size of each of my bags is dependent on the amount of scrap of each fabric I have...the lining (plain black satin) includes a zippered pocket and I had enough to make a tissue holder as well.

75  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Sunroom Sewing Machine Cover with Goldfinches on: August 04, 2007 03:44:39 PM
A very special mod, batgirl, asked for a sewing machine cover to match her gorgeous sunroom. Here is what I made her:

This side has a pocket to hold the manual, a magazine or pattern:

This side was just some fun appliques:

I used my own sewing machine to model, but the cover was made to the measurements of her machine so hopefully it fit better!
76  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Vintage-style Half Apron on: August 04, 2007 03:38:47 PM
I finally had a reason to use up this fabric that I bought a few years ago (or was it more like 10 years ago?).  The trim is new small polka dots. Anyway, this was made for one of the other mods, kategirl:

77   / CLOTHING / Friendly Reminder on Requesting Tutorials on: July 21, 2007 11:43:59 AM
Hey everyone...I have noticed a lot more requests for tutorials lately, mostly from newbies who probably are not familiar enough with the rules of etiquette...

Please, making a tutorial is very time-consuming and some people just want to show off a creation or maybe they don't have time or might have a side business going, etc. Plus, it has got to be frustrating when a tutorial is posted and NO ONE posts a followup that they made a similar item! Ouch!

These kinds of comments clog up the thread, and frankly, are annoying...so please, if you truly are interested in how an item is made, ask the person in a PM or figure it out yourself...

I am not deleting posts requesting tutorials, just sending reminders for now--ok--carry on!

78  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bunny Tote Bag on: May 09, 2007 06:17:11 PM
Here is what you do when you only have a small amount of a really cute fabric leftover from another project:  make a tote!

I made this for bongirl5 to carry her books and music.  The fabric is Kona Bay and has the cutest little bunnies on them--I had enough for the flap and a panel.  It is sewn onto plain black canvas like fabric.  There are a few pockets inside in case she wants to throw in her cell or a few small items as well.

79  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ALL KIDS' CLOTHING INCLUDING RECONS IN THE KIDS'BOARD PLEASE on: April 15, 2007 03:55:32 PM
One of the reasons a Kid's Board was made was so that all of the items for children could be viewed in one area for those interested...

Superstitch and I are asking that even though some of the children's clothing might be recons, that you still post these on the Kid's Board--maybe down the road, if there are enough of these posts, a Recon for that board will be set up....

Superstitch will be modding the Kids' Board (she has kids, I don't!) Grin

Thanks for helping us make Craftster a place for everyone!
