Tough as nails, you are!  My goodness, you could be a real derby girl with your attitude and fortitude.  The menfolk are strange creatures, aren't they?  They'll fend off a saber-toothed tiger, but ask 'em for a splint and you're left to craft your own out of the materials at hand!  Silly boys!

Congratulations!  You did a great first-time project!  I'm grateful that my first sewing project, whatever it was, is no longer around, because it certainly wasn't that nice.  Of course, I was probably about 9 years old.  Anyway, the first way I ever learned to keep the fabric from fraying on the seams was to use the zig-zag stitch around the edges of all my pieces of cut fabric, usually before stitching the pieces together.  I still do that, because I don't have a Serger.  Pinking shears also help reduce fraying, if you've got them sharp enough to cut fabric.

Those are so sweet!  Trees are my holiday decorating theme and those are just the kind I want to make next... year.  Undecided  A little bell would be cute or a little birdy of some sort.

Cute!  Congratulations on your new machine!  Did you use a pattern?
3915  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Name Banner Flags for Kiddos [3 images] on: November 18, 2007 01:41:16 PM
I'm on a crafty kick AND a budgeting kick, so Auntie T-rex is going mostly handmade for the assorted varieties of niece- and nephew-types this holiday.  These are for the 3 and under kiddos.  I saw this somewhere online, but when I went back to the bookmark the page was gone.  I'm not sure how close this is to that one.  I've no intension of trying to sell these.

"Roxy!", "Megan" and "Sydney" have vinyl letters, "Ashton" is felt.  The ribbon at the top is pre-made double-fold bias tape.  My fabric stash is pretty small and isn't kid-centric, but this would be a great stash buster for those with a larger selection.  I had the vinyl, some of the bias tape, the thread and the grommets.  NOW I have a bigger stash of kid-centric fabric.   Wink



The backs of "Roxy" and "Ashton" flags (below).  The backs of "Sydney" and "Megan" are  random pairings of the same fabrics as on the front.  The ends of the ribbons have grommets by which to hang the banner flags.



For this project, Dave took a turn as studio assistant.



Thanks for looking!

Those are so sweet!  And what a great idea for using decorated hair clips.  If I wore hats, I'd be all over that idea.

completely lovely...very romantic , but not in an expected way . Love it .

I agree!  It's lovely and romantic w/o being particularly ornate.  I'm inspired to try something similar for a girlfriend's holiday present.  Thanks for sharing!  [bookmarked]

i really like the boxers i dea --i might use that for my bro -- but i can't think what to do for dad ---i can sew, knit, crochet, and i do LOTS oF bath and body stuff as well as stencils, Silouhetts, and jewlarry ect. he likes golfing ac/dc , wolf mother , action movies and is a total work-aholic 
Silhouettes, you say?  I've been thinking of doing a silhouette representation of an incident a friend had with him chasing a dog, chasing another dog, chasing a cat, chasing a squirrel that got into his house.  Is there a memorable or humorous occasion/incident from your dad's life that you can represesnt in silhouette?

that is a really great idea --thanks --although now i have to go through the family photo albums ---i was thinking of ironing on the silhouette or stencil on to a shirt or some sort of clothing itam.

Yeah, the thing holding me up is tackling the search for an image of a skinny guy swinging a broom!  I'm just assuming that finding an image of a Malamute and a Labrador Retriever would be easy... I could be wrong!

Are you any good with photo shop? you could always take a photo of a skinny guy and then manipulate it to look like what you want, since it's going to be a silhouette anyway.

At one point I even had the skinny guy lined up to let me shoot a photo of him swinging a golf club thinking that I could manipulate that in photoshop or by hand with a itty bitty teeny tiny white lie as to why I needed it, but I'm afraid to bring it back up and give away the secret!  Also, not so good at, nor to I much enjoy, lying.  Even the little white ones like that - unless we're talking about being polite or sparing someone's feelings (i.e. "what a lovely home", etc.)   Undecided  BUT I'm reminded that I have a friend who's a sports photographer who might be able to help me out.  Hmmmmmm.

Simple, but not dull!  I like your choice of earwire for this pair, too.

The in-ear photos are good, but I think that the earrings would show up better on something with a smaller pattern or solid color in the other shot.
