1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt - Vintage sheet Quilt on: June 28, 2011 05:30:27 PM
This is my first quilt. It's 100% machine sewn and made completely out of vintage sheets and the batting is made from an old mattress protector of ours (so i know it's not grody)

The back is a vintage Flannelette sheet and the binding is also made of a sheet. I really like the contrast between the purple binding and yellow backing.

I also embroidered a square on each row of the Quilt, Just going around the existing pattern.

I'll post a few of the embroidered squares here, the rest of them are on my blog if interested, the address is my signature.

Thanks for looking! I'm going to give this to my Sister in Law who just found out she is pregnant!





2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Snug as a Bug Pj Pants and Hobo bag on: April 25, 2011 02:43:42 AM
I love it when I find some time for some sewing right!

I made these for a first birthday present. The Pj bottoms are from the Make It Perfect book and the Hobo sack is from a Made by Dana tutorial.

I thought it turned into a pretty cute present. Thanks for looking!





3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Super adorable skirt on: April 03, 2011 12:56:04 AM
Hey all

I found this great pattern here - http://www.thegirlcreative.com/2011/03/petal-tiered-skirt-tutorial_15.html

I loved making this! I was so excited to make it, it was all I could think about:) I was really proud when I finished, first time using piping and first time using a zipper foot (for the piping)

Here is the front of the skirt



Back



and modeled - Ok, I don't have a little girl, only a boy, I remain mute on who is wearing this skirt Wink



Slightly more info on my blog if you are interested:)
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Red Velvet trousers on: April 02, 2011 02:06:48 AM
This is the second pair of these trousers that I have made. But these ones are for a girl I think with the velvet and all!

As with the first pair I missed off some pockets because they are for a one year old, and one year olds don't need pockets!


5  COOKING / Dessert / Cookie Monster Cupcakes on: March 26, 2011 01:07:23 AM
I have seen heaps of these online and I have wanted to try them for ages. I made these for my husbands birthday who is a big sesame street fan.

The cupcakes themselves are Chocolate and made from this recipe which is the best chocolate cake recipe I have ever made. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/One-Bowl-Chocolate-Cake-III/Detail.aspx

Then I made butter frosting with blue coloring, I used white buttons for the eyes and attached chocolate chips with some of the icing. I broke a store bought cookie in half and pressed it into the cupcake.

I hope you like them! Sorry you can't taste them!




6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bear taggie on: March 24, 2011 03:59:40 PM
This bear taggie is made out of woolen blankets and has a rattle inside. It's inspired from these two taggies that are just adorable. http://somthinsomthin.tumblr.com/post/4017439475/tag-stuffies

I'm not as happy with it as I would like but I was happy enough to give it away as a gift:) Thanks for looking.



7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Trousers for a 1 year old on: March 24, 2011 03:48:45 PM
I made these for a little friend of my babies for his first birthday. I really like the pattern - it's from the sewing book 'Make it Perfect'. The pattern had side pockets on that I left off as how many pockets do a one year old need.


8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage sheet pajama shorts on: March 08, 2011 11:13:45 PM
I made these for my Sister in Law for Christmas. They are made out of a vintage sheet and I bought a store T shirt to make up a pajama set. A few more details on my blog.

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sock monkeys! a biggy and a littley on: March 08, 2011 11:10:47 PM
I made these for Christmas, one was for my Niece who went absolutely nuts when she opened it. The little blue one is made out of baby socks and I made it for my little boy. Next time I make something like that for a baby I will put a rattle in it as well to make it a bit more interesting to a baby!


10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sewing Kit Jar on: January 09, 2011 11:49:09 PM
I made this for my Mother in Law for Christmas as she has admired mine a few times. I was really happy with how it turned out - More photos on my blog.
