1  Re: And then there were two! 2 Pillowcase dresses and an ode to bias tape making in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by notverytalented on: July 16, 2007 12:09:15 AM
My first thought was how pretty these would be made from vintage pillow cases with the embroidery at the edge of the case.  Especially those will the Southern Belle and her umbrella.

Like this:

or this:

I wish I had a kiddo around the house small enough to wear one of these.

I don't have a digital camera and my polaroid won't take clear shots of close-ups for me to scan.  So, here's a drawing of a machine head and where the tack would be in relation to the needle.  I put tape over the point of the tack to hold it down to the machine bed.

Practice with a few scraps of fabric.  Make the fabric about 6" square and put the center over the tack (if you have the tack 2.5 inches to the left of the needle--use a ruler.)  Start stiching with a straight stitch and your feed dogs will pull the fabric and stitch a circle.

You can also just draw around a round shape (like a small plate or lid of something) and then stitch along the lines.  That works just fine and is how I did my first few. 

You know, they really don't have to be round.  You could make squares and just round off the corners a bit.  That would work fine.  There are all kinds of knits that wouldn't even need sewing if they were a bit thick.  Sweatshirt fleece or evey poly fleece can just be cut and used without stitching the edges.
