1  I'm on a roll.... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by mommy2six on: October 28, 2010 09:33:26 AM
This is my second headband.  I love the creative process, but I really need to find some better glue. I'm not digging this boogery stuff.  Any suggestions?

2  My first try at a fancy headband. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by mommy2six on: October 27, 2010 01:56:11 PM
I love these, but they are mighty pricey.  I have a ton o scraps laying around so I thought I would try it...I think it turned out kinda cute.  I made my oldest model it as soon as she came home from school. HaHa.. She was thrilled.  Whaddya think? C&C welcome.

3  Will never use a shorts pattern EVER again Mario bedsheet shorts! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mommy2six on: June 09, 2010 07:37:27 AM
I had to make an outfit for the brother of the little gal that will be getting the Dora twirly skirt I posted earlier so he wouldn't feel left out.  He loves Mario and I just happen to have a Mario/Zelda sheet I picked up a long time ago and never used.  I want to say, I will NEVER EVER EVER use a stupid pattern for little people pants or shorts! What the heck??? I only used it bc I wanted to just cut out the Mario parts of the sheet, otherwise, I would just use the super quick two piece cut out yourself method. I don't even want to discuss how I jacked it all up.  Let's just say a 30 min job turned into a 2 1/2 job.  Angry  Anywho, I think they are pretty cute.  The kids I made them for are opposite of mine so after having my boy model Dora, I'm had my daughter model Mario.  Grin  Oh well, right?  They don't care.  They could be modeling old lady's orthopedic shoes and would be happy about it as long as they are getting attention.

4  Twirly Dora outfit modeled by my little man...oh whatever, he enjoyed it ; P in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mommy2six on: June 06, 2010 08:25:43 PM
I made an outfit for my cousin's daughter that lives several states away.  The only one I had to model it was my lil' monkey that's a wee bit older.  As soon as I put him in it, he started swishing around like crazy to make it spin. Haha. 

I made it too big, I'm sure.  For some reason, I always seem to do that.  I spose if I measured more, it would work out better.  Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute.

He looks like a mini football player in a dress. Hahaha.

Close up

Thanks for looking...

C&C welcome

5  Twirly "just wing it" skirts are fun! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mommy2six on: June 01, 2010 10:38:52 AM
I found the tank top on clearance for $2 and thought it would make a cute dress somehow for the littles.  Soo it inspired a "just wing it" tiered twirly skirt that I was going to attach to the shirt, but decided not to.  Anyway, it turned out very twirly and twirly is good so we were all happy...the end!  Grin

Twirly is best!


I think she was contemplating how much she loves her mommy for making her the fab twirly skirt.  Wink

6  Spring Fling ruffley turqiouse goodness. My first attempt at non-kid sewing! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mommy2six on: May 22, 2010 12:00:28 PM
My daughter's school had a Spring Fling dance and we couldn't find a dress she liked.  I sew for my little ones a lot, but she's a teenager and not that into my creativity  Roll Eyes  Anywho, she decided to let me try and make her one.  She picked everything out.  It was a last minute thing and lots 'o stressful, but I got it done.  I would like to say, though, I know my seam ripper intimately now. Cheesy

You can kind of see the back.  It wasn't perfect, and the zipper was a hack job, but she liked and I was really happy to get to sew for my oldest.

7  Bed sheet skirt and matching reverse applique top in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mommy2six on: April 29, 2010 07:27:44 PM
The Mickey material was a $2 2nd hand bed sheet .  The lace was given to me and the shirt was .25 at a g sale.  It was my first time with pleating.  I altered the boys undershirt with taking in the sides, gathered shoulders, lace at the bottom and reverse applique. The girls like it and I am kinda proud of how it turned out and I have lots of material left to make something for my other little ones.   Grin

8  *Little girl dress from big gal skirt* in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mommy2six on: April 28, 2010 12:36:39 PM
I haven't been sewing in awhile and got the itch.  I found this skirt at Goodwill for a few bucks.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I was rather lazy and didn't want to hem, though, so it is too long, but I still like it.  I was trying to save the zipper in back.  I also moved the flower to the left more so it wasn't so in the middle/in your face.  I think it looks much better that way.

pick ups

too long, I know

my flower Grin

Thanks for looking!

9  I only have access to trees and kids pictures in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by mommy2six on: November 13, 2009 04:05:09 PM
UGH! I'm always stuck at home and it's near impossible to get out much with so many little ones so most of my pictures are of trees and my kids.  I have a seriously crappy camera and I have been trying to edit them so it's not as noticable until I get my real camera.  I'm still learning editing, I've attempted photoshop twice now.  Woot Woot!  Anyway, here's some of my latest.  I like turquoise, can you tell?

10  Teaching myself more advance editing and photography (3 pics) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by mommy2six on: October 30, 2009 08:08:49 AM
I have been trying my hand at photography and photo editing pretty steadily in the last month.  I think these are probably the best ones I have so far.  Any comments or constructive criticism would be appreciated.  Schooling really isn't an option right now so I am trying to learn on my own.  Please let me know what you think (gently please, my ego if gragile Smiley

p.s. Sorry they are so big, photobucket is being poopy lately and this was the only code I could get....Anyone else having probs with them?  Half the time I can't even access my images..
