1  My First time shirring + leftover fabric= My First Dress! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by aodm on: April 11, 2007 08:31:37 AM
This is my first dress! I'm so excited! I saw  these tops that Vegbee made and I just had to make something like that so I went to Wal-Mart bought some elastic thread, came home and got to work. I need to add sleeves or something because Dani is really active so it slips down and we don't want any nips showing, right? Wink  Anyways I'll stop talking here it is.

  On her (yes she is standing on the table)


Sort of back/side view (someday she'll be posing like Vegbee's "monkey")


And sort of close-up of shirring

Please comment I would really like to know your honest opinion because it was so fun making something for Dani (especially running after her trying to get a good picture) that I want to make more. Should I stop sewing or keep on going?

By the way does anyone know how to resize photobucket pictures? These are huge!

TUTORIAL---------

SUPPLIES

scissors
ruler
sewing machine/supplies
cardboard
fabric for lining
your cute handles
and any embellishments you wish for your purse
*optional fabric glue and interfacing*

1. FIRST CUT YOUR JEANS BELOW THE BACK POCKET (SAVE THE LEGS)

2. THEN MEASURE FROM HALF OF THE FRONT POCKET TO THE BEGINNING OF THE BACK POCKET THEN MEASURE FROM THE BEG. OF THE BACK POCKET TO THE END OF THE OTHER POCKET

3. NEXT TAKE THE MEASUREMENTS YOU JUST TOOK AND GRAB ON OF THE LEGS AND CUT OUT A PIECE SHOULD BE A RECTANGLE MINE WAS FOR THE BOTTOM PART

4. NOW SEW THAT PIECE YOU JUST CUT TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR JEANS LIKE I TOLD YOU HALF OF FRONT POCKET TO BEG. OF BACK POCKET AND SO ON

5. THEN TAKE YOUR CARDBOARD AND CUT PIECES EQUAL TO THE SIZE OF YOUR BAG SIDES AND BOTTOM TAKE YOUR GLUE ANY GLUE AND GLUE THEM TO ALL YOUR SIDES AND BOTTOM TO KEEP YOUR BAG STANDING STRAIGHT AND TALL

6. OK NOW TAKE YOUR LINING FABRIC AND MAKE ANOTHER "PURSE IDENTICAL TO YOUR ALMOST READY JEAN PURSE" HOPE I MAKE SENSE

7. GLUE IT TO THE INSIDE OF YOUR  OR SEW BUT I THINK GLUE WORKS BETTER AT LEAST FOR ME IT DID  ;DJEANS AND WAIT FOR IT TO DRY

AND THERE YOU GO!! A BRAND NEW PURSE.. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS ADD YOUR HANDLES I ADDED MINE WITH KEYRINGS ON THE BELT THINGIES AND DECORATE AS YOU PLEASE

* SINCE THIS WAS MY FIRST RECON I DIDN'T THINK OF USING INTERFACING IT MIGHT WORK BUT I'VE NEVER USED SO I DON'T KNOW HOW IT WORKS BUT IF YOU WANT TO TRY IT GO FOR IT *
