PS I posted a tutorial on my blog (it's a PDF and the images would take forever to pull out and upload on Craftster). Check it out.

I love this - what a great gift. This would be a good way to use up extra wintery fabric, too, the wrapping would hide any seams in the middle.

Good point! I make a point to add some fun patchwork if I have to make a seam to make something longer. Just a thought to add some more fun to something like this. Smiley

That could work, but the problem is that the velcro won't hold as well or look as nice. The idea with this is that you don't have to snap all the snaps or snap them into the correct snaps either. The unused snaps become design elements, but I don't know about velcro.

You could just do buttons and button holes. Or toggles and elastic? That would be a little nicer than velcro.

Also don't be afraid of snaps. YOU GET TO USE A HAMMER. Smiley

Thanks! It was really easy. I think mine is less than 60" long, but not by much. Also, the widest part when I cut it was 13" and I used 1/4" seams.

I found this online at Supermarket HQ and the price was kind of ridiculous for essentially 2 long strips of fabric and 3 snaps. I'm not sure if the fabric had gold in it or what, but seriously ...

Anywho, my boyfriend fell in LOVE with this and was going to buy it for his mom for Christmas. But I talked him into letting me take a stab at it. We bought some vintage wool and I plucked a pretty lining fabric from my ginormous stash. I got out my hammer and added some snaps.

And 45 minutes later ...

Also, sorry for the dorky outfit underneath. I'm planning on making another one for myself and taking GOOD photos with a cute outfit (and makeup with my hair did).

Thanks for looking!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Reversible Apron for my Niece on: December 18, 2011 08:28:29 PM
My mom requested that I make an apron for my niece. I found this really basic tutorial and adjusted it to make it reversible and to fit my niece.

I like how it turned out, especially now that I walked away from it for a while. There are a few mistakes, but she's 3, so she won't notice.

//////// EDIT ////////////// Post-Christmas in-action photos! Smiley

I especially love the fabric that I used for the top part. It's perfect for an apron! I'm glad she's little so I could stash a scrap of the fat quarter back for later.


8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Michael Jackson Beat It Pillow on: December 18, 2011 08:22:53 PM
I reconstructed a threadless (beat it) T-shirt into this pillow with the help of some patchwork. This is a Christmas present for my boyfriend's brother-in-law who LOVES MJ. Smiley

Thanks for looking. I kinda want to keep this one for myself ...
