1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / New Mushroom outfit for my Sweetie on: March 14, 2009 08:31:33 PM
I made a new mushroom outfit for my little sweetie.  The top works for cooler weather now with a tee shirt under it and then in the summer it will be great on its own.  This is the first time I have appliqued on jeans and it was easier than I thought it would be. 







I appliqued a mushroom on the top to match the fabric.  You can't see it too well because of all the gathering in the top.



And the jeans applique


2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / a couple of things for fall (updated to add modeled pics) on: November 21, 2008 06:25:17 PM
I am not sewing nearly as many cute things for her as I would like.  My granddaughter just isn't thrilled with playing in the playpen in my sewing room. 

Anyway here are a couple of things I made for her for the fall.  She wore this first peasant top to the Harvest Fest at our church.  I added a couple of rows of elastic shirring to the middle after this picture and it turned out cute.



Okay here's a couple of pics of her wearing this shirt.  She isn't walking yet so my husband is trying to encourage her to take a few steps in the second one.





This is the outfit that she will wear for Thanksgiving.  We will have a Thanksgiving dinner on Tuesday at church and then she will go to her other grandparents' house on Thursday so she will get to wear this one more than once (Yea for that part!)  It is a little unstructured jacket and a pair of pants with cuffs that match the jacket trim.  I'm hoping to make another peasant blouse to match but if I can't get that done then she'll wear a long sleeved cream tee with it.



My little model is sleeping right now but I'll try to add pics of her wearing this stuff later on.  Thanks for looking everyone! Smiley

And here's the Thanksgiving outfit.  Nothing like finishing at the last minute -- I finished at about 1:30 and she is leaving here at 3:00! LOL

The jeans and the peasant shirt.  I made it longer like a tunic.





And with the jacket.  I love how the jacket is shorter than the shirt so it looks like a double ruffle on the bottom.



She's really getting into the fall spirit and throwing some leaves around in this one. Smiley

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 2 outfits for my granddaughter on: June 30, 2008 01:32:10 PM
Here's a couple of things I made for my granddaughter.  Unfortunately no modeled pics because she has outgrown them.  I kept thinking I would take pics and then before I knew it they didn't fit her any more.  So here they are just hanging.

Simple little sundress.  This was super super easy and I'll probably make more like it.



Little top and capri pants.  Can you tell I like these elasticized straps?  I keep putting them on everything I make her. LOL

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / New Outfit for my granddaughter -- Updated with modeled pics on: June 22, 2008 09:46:45 AM
I haven't posted here in a long time so I thought I would post my most recent project.  This is a romper for my granddaughter.  It is made from an Ottobre pattern.  Technically the pattern is for the boy version but I'm still going to put it on a girl.  I only had a fat quarter of the panda fabric and the girly version has ruffles going down the side.  I knew I couldn't get ruffles out of the fat quarter so I just made the boy version instead.

The pocket fabric is Japanese fabric and the romper is made from orange fabric with Japanese writing all over it.  Here's a couple of pics.  I'll have a modeled pic after my model wakes up from morning nap.






Here's a couple of pics of my granddaughter wearing her romper.  We were trying to get her to stand up but she didn't feel like cooperating:




5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / So I am just learning to sew clothing on: February 17, 2008 07:03:31 PM
I have never posted on this board because I usually sew purses and post them over on that board.  But now I have decided that I want to learn to make clothing.  I have made 3 outfits so far that I really like.  But my only problem is that I only have a 6 month old grandaughter so I don't have anyone to measure to make the bigger sizes.  Right now I am just winging it as far as measurements go.  So are you ready?  Here goes:

The Whimsy Owl outfit in blue



The Whimsy Owl outfit in purple



and finally the Star Paisley dress



So tell me what you think.  and thanks for looking! Smiley
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Lots of Messenger Bags and lots of pictures on: October 06, 2007 10:24:53 AM
I have been making lots of messenger bags lately.  And they are all thanks to Runnermom's help.  She can do a great tutorial.  Check out some of the ones she has posted on here. 

Anyway, here are the bags.  Oh and I love them all so I might say that a jillion times in this post.

This one is made out of denim that has skulls and crossbones embossed on it.  The inside is a cool red checked material.  My daughter says it is very punk looking



Another kinda punk one.  The body is black baby wale corduroy and the flap is made from skulls and roses fabric.



This is camo hearts fabric.  It looks like camo but is really hearts.  I am coming to the end of my stash of this fabric and I am a little bit sad about it.



I love how this one turned out.  It is a smoky gray wide wale corduroy on the body of the bag and the flap is awesome Amy Butler fabric.  The inside is a plain pink fabric.  It is  just fabulous!



This is a deep teal corduroy with flowers embroidered on it.  I did not do the embroidery, it came like that.  It is so pretty.  The inside is a turquoise color to match the embroidery.  It is so great in person.



Okay so that is it.  Let me know what you think! Smiley
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I finally cut into my Freshcut fabrics! :) on: September 10, 2007 06:51:36 PM
I have had some Heather Bailey Freshcut fabrics forever and ever and I hadn't ever found the *perfect* purse.  Well finally I decided to just take the plunge and start cutting.  I'm glad I did because I love this purse.

So here is the front view.  The body is flowered fabric and the accent strip on the front and the straps are a dotted fabric.



Side view:



Zipper view. I really like how the zipper part came out.  And it lays better in person.



And inside shot.  One big pocket that is divided into 2 sections



Well I hope ya'll like it as much as I do.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Diaper Bag! :) on: July 27, 2007 07:20:46 PM
Well the grandbaby is coming next Thursday and I finished her diaper bag just in time.  I took my time and put lots of detail into this one and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  So onto the pics.

Here's the bag with the matching quilt that I made.  If you want to see more pics of the quilt check out this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=183628.msg1914207#msg1914207



The whole bag:



Close up of the bag.  I added a little swivel hook so a little baby toy or even mom's keys can be hooked on it.



Inside the bag.  There are four big pockets inside for all the different things a baby needs.  I just loaded up some of the things we have here at our house.  I'm sure there will be different things in in the pockets when it is packed up for baby.



Inside all emptied out.



A pic of the bag and the quilt on the baby's toy box.  The toy box was the mom-to-be's toy box when she was little.  My husband refinished it for the new baby and it and the cradle are just waiting for her to get here! Smiley



Okay that's it for the pics.  Let me know what you think of it.
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby Quilt - My First Quilt! on: July 16, 2007 06:10:00 PM
I usually post over in the purse section and just come here and drool at everyone's cool quilts.  But I am going to be a grandma sometime in August (first granddaughter) and I thought I really should make the baby a quilt.  So I got a really easy pattern and just jumped in.  I have made a few quilted purses but this was totally different.  I got a little off in my measuring and cutting but I am still really happy with how the quilt turned out. 

I machine pieced the top and then I had someone else quilt it.  He did an awesome job with the quilting.  In case you can't see it the backing has lots of hearts on it and the quilting is lots of hearts that are interlocking.  Oh and in the very near future there will be a diaper bag to match.  On to the pics . . .

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / So here's my newest bag! on: June 28, 2007 05:16:34 PM
I haven't been posting much lately.  We are remodeling our house and we are expecting a new grandbaby.  So much planning & busyness goes into that stuff!

Anyway I am trying to sew when I get time.  Here is my newest purse.  I just love how it turned out! Smiley







Hopefully I'll be sewing alot more in the next few weeks and I'll be sure to post them here.  Thanks for looking!
