11  Re: 2017 DeStash Along in Craftalongs by RedheadWithThread on: June 07, 2017 07:16:42 PM
I sewed a reversible bucket hat for my son. It does count even though only half the fabric is from stash, right? The blue is stash but the Star Wars was a recent purchase: it was a fat quarter that was meant to become a wallet for me but I liked how it paired with the blue, which I had already planned to use for the hat.

12  Star Wars/blue reversible bucket hat in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: June 07, 2017 07:14:19 PM
It's starting to get sunnier where I live so I decided to sew up a bucket hat to keep the sun off my little guy's head. I used this great pattern for a reversible bucket hat along with a Star Wars fat quarter from Walmart (this same print is available by the yard at JoAnn's!) and some blue fabric I had left from another project from last year.

Star Wars:


The only time he'll wear the hat is outside: if I put it on him before we get outside, he takes it off and throws it. Same goes for his shades! Roll Eyes

Prompt: June - Swamp of Undrying Glue
Team: Clan of the Creators
Project Name: Southern favorite dinner
One of my favorite childhood meals was fried chicken, black eyed peas, and cornbread. But my hubs and I are trying to be healthier so I made seasoned baked chicken instead. The wait was for the peas, which take the longest at one hour. I also let the seasonings set on the chicken for about ten minutes.

Ezri_B, that fan is hilarious. I love it!

gozer, I love those ATCs, especially the skull with the rose! It's elegant yet macabre.

bunny1kenobi, I LOVE that sheep abduction.

My hubs bought me a Star Wars fat quarter for my birthday so that I could make myself a wallet. Then I remembered I had printed this pattern a couple months ago so that I could sew a hat for my little guy. Today I FINALLY sat down and sewed it. I had never sewn a hat before so this was a very interesting learning experience. The pattern said that interfacing the hat was optional but I wish I'd had some so that the brim would hold it's shape better. A bucket hat is useful for keeping the sun off your face and neck in the garden.

Reversible hat for my little guy:

I'll try to take better pics in the morning when there's more light. And try for pics on the baby, if he'll stop throwing it off. Roll Eyes

My husband bought me the fabric for these pants last year and I just never got around to making them. It's hard to sew bigger projects with a tiny "helper" who wants to yank the fabric off the table and unplug my sewing machine. Since he's at his Mimi's house this weekend, I was able to get these done, finally! lol

17  Doctor Who bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by RedheadWithThread on: June 04, 2017 02:30:22 PM
My hubs bought me the fabric a year or so ago. I was going to make curtains for our son's room with it. Then we moved and the 2 yards I had wasn't enough but my sister had given me some superhero fabric, of which there was enough so he's got curtains (I *just* made them. I procrastinate too much! Lol)
So my hubs asked what I was going to do with that Doctor Who fabric. I wasn't sure.
Then I decided I needed a purse that could also double as a diaper bag since there have been quite a few times we've had to turn around and head back home because I didn't grab the diaper bag. Usually, we're only about five minutes from home so it's not a huge deal, but once we were twenty minutes out and couldn't turn around so we had to stop and buy some diapers and wipes on the way, which sucked because we had a whole case of diapers at home!
Ahem...sorry, I get sidetracked a lot.
Here's the bag:

I made it using the Lauren bag pattern. The pattern calls for canvas, which would make it hold it's shape a little better. But I didn't have any canvas or any stabilizer and don't mind a slouchy bag so I just went with it. Here it's stuffed with fabric pieces I had laying on my craft table so that you can better see the shape of the bag. I made the handled using this great tutorial from Blue Susan Makes, which I found via Pinterest.


I used a remnant of the "Esploding Tardis" (yes, it has "Esploding" printed as its name, not "exploding") fabric for the inside to give it visual interest and added a pocket for my cell phone and gum (I ALWAYS have gum in my purse).

It's a little bit wonky, but I think I did pretty well considering it's only the second purse I've ever made, and the fact that the zipper made me crazy since I'd never sewn a zipper on a curve. A big thanks to gozer for her help and cheering me on to finish it. You're awesome, and I hope to make bags as nicely as you do someday! Kiss

My first ever pair of curtains! Cheesy

They got their own post in Home Sweet Home, too, with a close-up shot of the fabric: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452520.0

19  Marvel Comics Curtains in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: June 03, 2017 09:12:54 PM
My sister bought me this awesome Marvel Comics fabric on super sale at Walmart a little over a year ago so that I could make curtains for my son's room.

At the time, we were living in a trailer so his bedroom window wasn't very big, which means this fabric would have been a bit longer than I needed. However, several months after she bought me the fabric, we moved to where we are now and his bedroom window is a nice tall one: tall enough that the fabric wasn't long enough! Shocked
So I decided to add a small strip of red to it to make it the right length.
First I pinned it to see if I'd like the look:

I had seen curtains like this before and liked the look of it so I went with it and now I have a pair of nice superhero curtains:


I think they look great for my first set of curtains Cheesy

Project Name: Marvel Comics Curtains
Project Link: Here
I had the fabric for these curtains sitting in my stash for about a year: my sister bought it on super sale and gave it to me to sew curtains for my son's room. I took a close up picture of the fabric before I got to work on these so y'all could see the print better. I had never made curtains so I looked up a couple of tutorials. It was as simple as I thought it would be: just measure the window's height and width then add a few inches to the length and double the width for full curtains. The little bit of red at the top of the curtains is because the fabric was just a tiny bit too short lengthwise. I like the band though because it compliments all the reds in the pattern.
Close-up/starting point:


*Does this qualify for WIP It? I had the fabric and knew what I would do with it, just never did anything with it.
