Wisted?  Huh
Hi, Cinnamon! Wow, you have so many talents. This apron is cute! You should make one for yourself!

You could also modify it into a summer dress with an asymetrical hem, too!  Smiley

Hi Deanna,

www.wists.com is an site where you can make your own wish list from any picture/item on the internet (doesn't really work with flash sites, though.)  A lot of craftsters use them for swaps, to give their partners ideas.  It's a pretty cool concept. 

I think I might make an apron for myself once Christmas is over.  I should have enough fabric.  This pattern only takes about a yard (of the wide fabric anyways). 

I really appreciate the compliments Smiley.  I feel like such a bumbling novice when I sew Tongue.  My mom taught me when I was little, but I never really made anything more complex than jammies before.

My dad is an avid bird watcher and I cannot tell you how many hours I spent as a kid trying to find some little brown bird in a bush because it was the rare and endangered something.  Those little f***ers really piss me off.  I love this pic.  It makes me feel a little bit vindicated somehow.  Smiley

Now that I've made myself sound like a total nut job, I'd just like to say that I'm really diggin this picture.  You do really fantastic work.

I guess those anthropologie aprons do have a similar top.  I'm excited that I made mine without seeing their one first. Smiley  ($50?!?  I can't believe how much some people will pay for their stuff!)

Oh, and I got the fabric from Ikea.

Here's an apron I made for my sister or sister-in-law.  (working on the second one right now)

Additional info and picture here:

*I just finished the second one.  so I now have one for my sister and sister-in-law, both!*

Wow... I got wisted! Grin

Thanks so much for the compliments!! You just made my day Smiley

I just finished this apron.  It's a Christmas present for either my sister or my sister-in-law.  I have enough fabric, so I think I'm going to make another one, so I can give one to each girl.

Anyways, I based it off this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129867.0 but made it with a halter top, changed the sides and left off the pockets.  This is the first time I've made something without a pattern.

The top is a bit big on me, but both girls are a bit bustier than I am, so I think it's ok.

*edited to fix a typo*

Maybe one of these will give you a nudge towards something your mom would like.

My mom always likes jewelry.  You could thread some beads on wire and knit a bracelet. 

Sentimental things can be good for parents, too.  You could make a calendar with pictures of your family, starting when you were a baby and write down all the important dates for her (b-days, anniversaries, etc.)

My parents are into wine (they like to make it and love to drink it) so I'm going to create a logo for them and etch it onto some wine glasses, like the ones that you get when you go wine tasting.

Wow... That has got to be the geekiest wreath I have ever seen.  I love that it glows.  do you have any "action shots"?

It would be really sweet if you went all out with it and made it do more stuff, like play music or light up to form different holiday images or something else that's really spectacularly nerdy that my sleepy brain can't think of at the moment. 

Anyways, I'm diggin' your 1337 wreath Wink.

hmmm... one year for Valentines Day, for my husband, when we were dating, I did an Amalie style scavenger hunt.  I took a bunch of polariods of places and left little gifts at each place with the pic of the next place.  I just got reminded of that because one of the places was my ceramics locker on campus.  (the combo lock made me think of it)

Another scavenger hunt that I did was for my Dad for fathers' day (with the help of my sibs.)  Each of the clues was a riddle or puzzle of some sort (crossword, sudoku with letters, jumble, etc.) We also made a couple video clues and put them on his iPod.  The last clue lead to a little book that we made and illustrated with all the things we appreciate about him.  (He was going through a really difficult time and we wanted him to feel loved and appreciated.)

Anyways, something like that might work for her. 
1700  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Eeek! Save me! a.k.a. I made a boo boo and now I need your opinion. on: December 12, 2006 08:47:08 PM
So here's the deal.  I'm making my little bro (11) some jammy pants.  I bought a men's pattern, cuz I'm making some for other people too and decided that I could just alter it to fit a kid.  But I ended up making the legs too narrow Angry.  So here's my question, should I go with
Plan A: add side panels in the same fabric
Plan B: add side panels in a different fabric or
Plan C: I was hoping you could help me out with Plan C.

I basted on one panel of each fabric to help us out:

The pants:

Plan A with close up and a pic of me squeezed into them for comic effect to give you an idea of what they look like on a person. (And yes, I am wearing my husbands socks.)

Plan B:
