1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My denim version of the Little Artist Case - more pics added on: May 20, 2007 09:57:18 PM
Like the title says, I'm not really sure where else to put this one. Following the tute from http://craftapple.wordpress.com/2006/12/30/little-artist-drawing-case-tutorial/ I am going to make some for each of my kids. Had heaps of denim lying around and since Ds 8 loves denim he is first. Should have tried one of the others first cause it has lots of layers and sewing through that many layers of denim without an industrial machine is a NIGHTMARE. I used both sides of the denim to create contrast and used his favourite colours for the stitching.  After much swearing and 5 broken Denim needles this was the result. The sides are actually straight, not sure why they curve in the pics.

The front..

and the inside...

So glad the others want lighter cotton. Thanks for looking
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / TWINS ROCK Hooded Sweatshirt on: April 30, 2007 05:27:57 PM
My first hooded sweat. Was so much easier than I thought it was going to be. The front is machine embroidered and the stripes were done by hand with bias tape. I lined the hood with red polar as I didn't like the seam showing and should make it warmer.

just plain on the back.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Basketball bag for my kids on: January 29, 2007 08:13:56 PM
After repeated nagging from my youngest 2, I gave in today and made them both bags for their basketballs. They have been playing for nearly 2 years and were given club balls as an end of season pressie so want to look after them.

I used a basic drawstring style bag and just shaped the bottom using a dinner plate. I machine embroidered the designs - 36ers are our NBL team here in Adelaide.
