1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pink Dress on: January 27, 2008 05:57:58 PM
I made a pink dress for my daughter.  The fabric is gorgeous.  It's a faux suede that I purchased at JoAnn's.  There is metallic leaves printed on top.  The fabric looks heavier than it is and I think I may do another lighter dress that can be worn into spring.  And it has to be dry cleaned.Sad  What was I thinking?  I used Simplicity 5483.

Here is the front.  I received a new Brother sewing machine for Christmas that made the button holes so easy.  I just push a button...


On the back there is a tie.


I made a few mistakes, but all in all it is a really easy and fast pattern.  Anyway, she likes it, so I'm good too.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Sublime Intials on: September 24, 2007 10:09:49 PM
My MIL made me several beautiful, big baby blankets for my girls.  I thought I would try one for my neighbors' brand new baby boy.

Here is the fabric.  It's printed flannel.  The whole blanket is approx. 1 square yard.  These big blankets are great for mummy-wrapping babies. 


I stitched in the baby's intials.  This is the Sublime Stitching part of the project.  I love adding a little somethin' somethin' to my projects.


After I sewed two pieces right sides together and turned it inside out, I stitched a border using my sewing machine.  I just wish I had used a different style.  Next time...


Thanks for looking.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Shorts - Sublimely Spiced Up on: September 24, 2007 10:01:20 PM
I found these cute shorts for $7, but they were too plain for my daughter.  The shorts had one small gray embroidered butterfly on them.  I added two more butterflies and 3 more vines.  Patterns came from the Sublime Stitching book, of course.  Now they are more of my daughter's style.

Off to school...


Thanks for looking.  Sublime stitchin' is really addictin.'

4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Patriotic Kids' T-Shirts on: July 03, 2007 11:14:41 PM
So I'm one of those moms who likes to dress their kids up in matching outfits on big holidays.  I know... I know....  That can be another topic for discussion later.  

But this year I couldn't find anything I liked, so I bought a couple of white t-shirts from Target for $4.99 with navy blue bottoms also for $4.99 and went to work.  I used patterns from the Sublime Stitching book, thread and materials which I already had.  So I spent $20.00 total to dress both kids for the festivities.



5  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Onesies - Sublime Vegetables on: March 30, 2007 09:18:58 PM
So I wanted to try embroidery after I saw all the wonderful projects here.  I haven't embroidered since I was 10.  I bought some Sublime Stitching patterns and t-shirt stabilizer (which I love) and made these for my pregnant friend.


One question - Does anyone cover the back of the embroidery?  Some of my store-bought clothes have felt (or something) on the back.  I don't like the back of the onesies.  I need to practice more to make it look nicer.


Thanks for looking.
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Completed Baby Quilt on: February 20, 2007 05:04:11 PM
Hi Y'all,

This is my first post.  I just completed my second quilt ever.  It is baby quilt for my friend.  I just picked out fabric I liked and cut a whole bunch of 5.5 x 5.5 inch squares.  I laid out a simple pattern, sewed, then machine quilted along the seams.  The binding was difficult.  Any suggestions for a novice quilter?  Thanks.
