11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fabric Stacking Rings on: September 23, 2008 04:49:29 PM
It seems like this project has taken forever, but I finally managed to finish my Happy Stacker (one of Heather Bailey's new patterns):



As you can see the finished set is HUGE (12" tall and 8 1/2" wide at the largest ring).  It truly was a "labor of love" project - there's lots of pieces to cut, interfacings to fuse, markings to transfer, seams to trim, stuffing, and hand-stitching involved so this was not a quick to sew up project.... but my little guy seems to like it so all the effort was worth it.  I'll skip all the tips and tricks that I used, but if you're interested in making this pattern for yourself, I've posted them on my website here: http://www.stacysews.com/projects/heather_bailey_happy_stacker_ring_toy/
12  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Military Style Hat on: September 04, 2008 09:52:58 AM
As soon as I saw the pattern for this military style hat (in Amy Butler's Little Stitches), I knew I had to make it.  I finally sat down and finished it up:



It's a little bit Castro-ish on, so I think he needs some sort of shirt that says "Obey Me" or "Iron-fisted Dictator" to complete the look.   Grin  Here's the action shot:

13  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My Bootie(s) on: August 04, 2008 02:23:01 PM
It's been years since I've been able to make baby stuff, but I'm making up for lost time...  Yesterday, I finished up a pair of baby booties:



Of course, I may think they're cute, but the real test is the little guy's reaction to them:



I think he likes them! 

For those that are interested, the pattern is from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little One's book.
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Kitchy Sophia Carry-All on: April 08, 2008 10:24:51 AM
I've had this pattern in my stash for some time, but it wasn't until a friend and I decided to start a sew-along that I finally broke down and decided to make it.  So here it is, my completed Amy Butler Sophia Carry-All:



I can't wait to load it up and start using it.
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Skully Gingerbread Man on: August 20, 2007 09:12:05 AM
Partners were sent out last week for the Christmas Ornament Swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=188582.0).  One of my partners has a themed tree - the Nightmare Before Christmas.  Here tree is decorated in zombies, skeletons, and characters from the movie.  So, in order to try to keep with the theme, I made a skeleton gingerbread man.  The opposite side is made in a skulls and roses print fabric:

16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Bridesmaid Reconstruction to Jr. formal dress on: July 18, 2007 07:35:51 PM
My brother in law is getting married this Friday.  I got a call from his fiancee a week ago saying she wanted my daughter to be a jr. bridesmaid instead of a candlelighter.  Since I figured it would be difficult to find a dress in time, I raided my closed and used the material from a bridesmaid dress of my own (which just happened to be in the same color as my future sister in law) and came up with this.  Here's my before & after photo:



I most of the dress for this one - the organdy overlay and lining for the dress, the satin straps and broach for the "ribbon bow", and even ripped out the zipper for the back of the dress!

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Captain Jack Pirate-y clutch on: July 07, 2007 09:13:22 AM
So, I decided to experiment with some new mediums this weekend - iron on vinyl, posters, etc.  And here's what I came up with - a Jack Sparrow Clutch



I lined the inside with a skulls and roses fabric print and used the same material for the wrist strap:
