Well It's my husbands bday on monday so i figure why not make him mario bro themed cushions for his guy room! Everything is done from scratch. I appliqued buttons for eyes, hand embroidered his mouth and the rest is felt and the whole face is hand stitched on for the goomba cushion. The mushroom is all fleece with felt black eyes, but i obviously stitched the head on way off to the side so it's messed up. I'm gonna give him the mushroom today since i'd be too embarassed if he opened it infront of everyone tomorrow. Comments appreciated! Size reference to my hand
Well i worked on this bag on and off for 3 days and double sewed the seams so it will with hold its future contents, whatever they may be. I sewed wide satin ribbon along both sides, then skinnier satin ribbon onto the inner pocket. The pocket isn't uneven, just part of the lining is covering it in the pic. Outside is corduroy type fabric, inside is satin. Comments?
For christmas i made my mother a large tote bag to carry all her misc supplies to church in. Its corduroy fabric with gold shimmery accents, aswell as a patchwork pocket inside and ties for closure. The bottom is designed to have that structured square look just it's hidden well in the design. She specifically asked for a large bag with only one strap, not two so this is what she got for christmas and she loved it. It's only my 3rd bag attempt so be gentle on me.
My mother wanted a nice warm fleece hat for those cold canadian winters. I've never made a hat but i'm up for challenges so i made a reversible double fleece layered one for her. Made from dark red and dark grey fleece and the appliques are a snowflake with surrounding smaller flakes, then a diamond/argyle type pattern on the other brim of the hat. When she flips over the brim she has her self a new design. Comments? Sorry no action shots folks.
So I started out with 2 of these beasty looking sweaters(one in cream, one in red). They had collars and were 4x bigger then me. So i made them into cropped sweaters and used the collars for the edge of the sleeves. The sleeves are also pleated on the side.
