1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Powder Puff Snowman on: November 19, 2009 12:07:46 PM
This is Buddy the Snowman and he is ready for Christmas.  He can be used as a clippie, a pin, an ornament, or a gift topper.  I made him for my friend, Viola, to wear as a pin.  I'm also going to use him as a clippie.  He's super easy to make.  I'm also going to do some in pink, green, and LSU purple and gold.  Let me know what you think.

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My latest addiction, hair bows! on: October 05, 2009 03:58:03 PM
I love making and selling jewelry, and hair bows has become my latest addiction.  This one is 4.5" wide and made with 1.5" wide ribbon.  I used the Curlz font to monogram it.  It was so much fun to make.  Apparently the style of this bow, the twisted  boutique, is hard to make.  Well, this was my second try.  It was a small challenge, but I thinnk it turned out pretty good.  The mom of the little girl I made it for loved it, as well.  She said, "This one's a keeper."  OMG, that made me feel so good.  Let me know what you think.

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How much should I charge for this hairbow? on: October 05, 2009 02:51:48 PM
I just started making hair bows.  I've been making them for friend's little girls to test out for me.  But, now I am getting orders from moms and don't know how to price them.  This is a monogrammed bow made with 1.5" ribbon and measures about 4.5" wide.  One mom told me she would pay $7.00 for one, which I think is great.  What do you think?  Thanks for your input.

These are some clippies I made for a friend's little girl.  They are made of ribbon I found in the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby.  They have a ton of really pretty ribbon that come in coordinating color sets.  I am hooked, and I bought five sets of ribbon to make more.  Let me know what you think.








5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Cotton question on: April 07, 2008 02:11:41 PM
I have lots of Robert Kaufman kona cotton to make lots of little girl dresses.  Would you suggest I wash the fabric first in order to pre-shrink it?  The fabric is 100% cotton.  I want the dresses to retain their shape and sizing after being washed. 

What is your opinion?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Little girl's initial dress on: March 03, 2008 08:56:39 PM
I just wanted to show off my new creation.  It's a denim dress lined with cutesy fabric.  I am really proud of this little dress, but the applique part was a challenge.  Shocked  My satin stitching around the letter could use some improvement.  I plan to practice it more, so I can get better at it.  This little dress is for a little girl named Rachel, hence the letter "r" on the front. Wink  Tell me what you think.




I love the colors in the lining fabric.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Need Help!!! on: February 21, 2008 07:32:42 PM
I made an A-line girl's dress like the one below.  I lined the whole thing, but when I went to turn the dress inside out it got all tangled and I ended up just hemming both the dress and the lining seperately.  I don't want to do that to the next one I make.  So, how do I line the dress and still be able to turn it?  I left an opening at the bottom of the dress and tried pulling the dress through that hole, but it didn't work.  It was all twisted.  Should I leave an opening in the shoulders instead and turn it from there?  Please help!  Undecided
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Red and black donut necklace set on: January 11, 2008 02:10:46 PM
I made this set of jewelry last night while watching HGTV.  I have had these beads for almost a year and last night I had a spark of creativity and came up with this.  Let me know what you think.
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mother's/Grandmother's Bracelet on: November 19, 2007 03:08:24 PM
This is a mother/grandmother's bracelet that I made.  It is for a lady who has five children and one grandson.  All the colors are the birthstones of her children and grandson.  It's made of all Swarovski components: Swarovski crystals, Swarovski crystal pearls and Swarovski crystal rondelles.  It's a good alternative mother/grandmother's bracelet for those who don't want to wear the traditional mother's bracelets with the child's name and birthstones, which I make a lot of.  I mailed it out to her today.  I hope she likes it.  Let me know what you think.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Attaching bows on: November 11, 2007 03:27:55 PM
Does anyone know how the bows are attached to dresses like this:

I see some of these dresses listed as "detachable bows."  How do you make them detachable?  The only thing I can come up with is that they are attached with a barret, saftey pins or pin closures.  If you attach it with a saftey pin or pin closure wouldn't parents be worried about the pin opening and sticking the child, or is this the way they are done.  Anyone with any experience with this please help.
