1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Purple Prom Dress designed by me, for my brothers girlfriend on: May 14, 2009 10:05:44 AM
So I designed this dress for my brothers girlfriend. It was a bit of a task considering I don't normally do my own patterns...lol. She told me what she wanted and showed me a few pics of different styles and we combined them. I think it turned out pretty good. I also made the duct tape dressform it is on because I wanted it to fit her exactly. This dress is fully lined, no crinoline because she didn't want to look "puffy". There is also boning and interfacing because I used taffeta and you know how thin that stuff is. The zipper was a challenge because of the double sash and being able to turn the fabric under, so much bulk! The top is pleated (don't ask the man hours there...yeeep!) I think she will look fab, I am also making my brother a matching tie and pocket square. This is my first attempt at a large dress project and all in all it went very well.

Finally me, so happy to have it done!!!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Made some Gauchos on: July 02, 2008 04:48:53 PM
I made these in about a half hour today. I used this blue as a trial run because it was cheap, but I ended up loving them in the colour. It's a jersey material and super comfy. These have a fold over waistband. Let me know what you think. P.s. I won't wear them with my brown shirt, I am making a shirt to go with the pants...lol.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Natural Born Hustler.......shirt on: May 19, 2008 04:24:00 PM
Ok so I resized a men's XL shirt to fit my 7 year old. Obviously it will never venture to school...lol

Original shirt...

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Made a camo hoodie for my boy on: April 20, 2008 03:31:50 PM
OK my first attempt at a hoodie for my little man. I wanted something that looked cool. So I had some camo print jersey and some black fleece, that I used for the lining, the mornings are a bit chilly still. The white sox emblem was recycled from a holey jersey that was set aside with intentions years ago. I used black rib knit for the cuffs and waist band. Let me know what you think. Please ignore the renovations happening in the background.....lol.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Reversible Dress and bloomers on: March 14, 2008 02:13:09 PM
I made this reversible dress and bloomers for an upcoming craft show. I like the fact it's 2 outfits in one, or if it gets dirty while your out you can turn it around...lol. I used a decorative stitch all the way around to give it some appeal. Let me know what you think!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Oh so small baby shoes on: February 09, 2008 07:43:15 AM
I made a pattern for some baby shoes, all my friends are having babies so I thought what the hey. These are the first 2 pairs I made. I want the red pair for myself, I think I have to make a pair in my size.

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Patchwork pillow, beauty and the beast on: October 29, 2007 06:34:35 AM
I hope this is the right spot, it's kinda quilted...lol. I made this for a friend of my son's, for her birthday. I embroidered beauty and the beast on it, then did the pink patches and finished it up with some vintage buttons and a bow.

8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Mater...you want me to make you a car?? on: October 29, 2007 06:28:48 AM
Ok last year my son decided he wanted to be Mater from cars. SO I thought, how the heck am I going to make a car costume?? So this is what I came up with....

I hand painted the whole thing to match the rusty exterior of Mater, my son helped too, he did a great job.
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Darth, Dash, Dorothy....lol. on: October 29, 2007 06:23:34 AM
These costumes were from 2 years ago but I haven't been here that long so I thought I would share anyway. I made all 3 costumes from scratch no patterns.

10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Edna Turnblad from Hairspray!! Costume I made for a friend. on: October 29, 2007 05:24:04 AM
So this is Angie, she is Edna Turnblad from Hairspray, John Travolta plays her in the movie. These are the pictures she sent me after she had her hair done. I think it looks like she's ready to go on stage. I made the dress, Angie did the shoes and hair band.
