1  Barbie doll clothes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by anneR on: March 19, 2009 11:13:44 AM
So, my daughter wanted some new clothes for her Barbies - and who am I to deny her that?  Roll Eyes It's not like I LIKE making teeny weeny stuff with fabric or anything...  Grin

Anyhow, first off a winter (bath)robe out of white fleece with pink ricrac - all handsewn, as I couldn't figure out how to do such tiny curved lines on my sewing machine... 


A knitted vest, my own invention


and finally, a first-time dress, a nightie, and a top with the music skirt (gotta love that fabric!)


I've made the dress a few more times after this one, with some changes to fit better (it doesn't show, but the bustier is a bit too big for the new Barbie bodies - it actually fit the older ones better).

So, what do you think? Not that bad for someone who's shyed away from sewing machines before, is it?

2  My blooming school bagtote (and pencil case)! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by anneR on: August 19, 2008 06:17:15 AM
I'll be starting school on Monday, and of course that requires some serious planning and organizing - which in turn makes it absolutely necessary to sew a new bag to keep all the necessities in, even if it does take an entire day off of my vacation...
Without further ado, here's my bagtote!
You can just make out the hidden zipper pocket from the zipper "head" hanging from between the two outside fabrics.
Inside - mobile phone pocket, keychain strap and small pockets for pens and bus pass.
And then an inside view with all the doodads in place - I've got plenty of space left, in case I need to haul my text books every day! Wink

A better pic of the pencil case I made for myself (following a tute I found here, by someone called Innamorata I think?) with a small cross-stitch patch (freebie from the Prairie Schooler)


Any and all comments very much welcome! Smiley

3  Re: Cross Stitched Mp3 Case - I'm proud! :D in Needlework: Completed Projects by anneR on: August 13, 2007 05:13:01 AM
Ok, so I finally got around to taking pics of my version of the mp3-case, made with excellent pattern-making skills by pinky_penguin! I'm quite pleased with it myself, but anyone looking at it upclose and personal will see that I've cut the wrong end of the piece that is on the on/off button side, so the fit is a little off. Better luck next time I guess!  Roll Eyes
On/off side:
The front flap:
And finally, the back, with a freebie from dragondreams:
