21  Re: Crafty Onesie/Lap Tee for your Little One Swap 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by indywriter on: December 10, 2007 07:29:08 AM
Okay, so I just had to throw in an action shot.

She loved this shirt and insisted on wearing her dressy shoes.  I tried to tell her that her dress shoes are meant to be worn with a dress, but she quickly pointed to her shirt and said, "My dress on."  How could I argue with that?

Thanks again, Jinkies!

So I actually received on Friday from Jinkies.  (I have everything sent to my office; so I was afraid it might come on Saturday, and I would miss it until Monday.)

It took me until now to locate my camera.  So sorry about the delay, Jinkies!

I got the best swap partner!  For someone without a girl, she did a great job!

First off is a sweet angel tee, perfect for Christmas-time but not really holiday-centric:

And the back is decorated too.  I couldn't get a good closeup, but there are wings and it says, "A spare pair."

I told Jinkies that we call the little one "Monkey," so... she appliqued a monkey for my Monkey  Grin

And finally, the sweetest of all, she made a skirted shirt.  And she even dyed the t-shirt.  I don't know exactly how she made it, but it looks like something you would buy this way.  I can't wait for the little one to wear it!

All of the shirts were awesome, so thank you Jinkies!   Cheesy

23  A simple flower girl basket in Weddings and Bridal Showers by indywriter on: November 27, 2007 01:16:52 PM
My brother got married on November 10.  Their wedding had a fall theme to it, so their colors were ivory, brown, and "Texas" orange (think rust or pumpkin pie).

I made two identical flower girl baskets for my girls to carry in the wedding.  My new sister-in-law bought all the supplies (except the ivory fabric, which was from the dresses I made the girls), so I looked at what she had and put these together.

I think they turned out pretty good.  Sweet and simple, perhaps a bit elegant.  Since this was my first attempt at such a project, I'm proud of myself.  I love glue guns!

I acted as a swap angel for doe_eyes.  She received, but is having computer issues, so I am posting pictures of what I sent her:

First off is a shirt for her boyfriend.  Minus Six is a local band.  I snagged this logo off their Myspace page.

Here is a closeup of the logo:

This tank top has a felt applique of the Red Hot Chili Peppers logo:

This hat and shirt are meant to be symbolic of doe_eyes' favorite song by Led Zepplin: Tangerine. 

Here are the lyrics:

Measuring a summer's day, I only finds it slips away to grey,
The hours, they bring me pain.

Tangerine, Tangerine, Living reflection from a dream;
I was her love, she was my queen, And now a thousand years between.

Thinking how it used to be, Does she still remember times like these?
To think of us again? And I do.

So I created tangerine-colored, crowned-hearts on a field of grey...

I got my package from Nyx_slittledemon yesterday.

So much cool stuff (and my girls are thrilled too).

First the group shot:

Lots of scrapping pages (including the punchout stuff that I never let myself buy) Smiley

A too cute album to hold the pics of my girls:

Some great hand-painted frames...

A great bag to hold my camera and all the necessities of photoging my girls (dum-dums, combs, clippies, wipes, etc).  And in my favorite color, too:

And an inside shot to show the cool pockets:

And NYX fuond the way to my heart... through stuff for my girls.  She so very thoughtfully included something for each of them.  Now they each have a Winnie the Pooh disposable camera and carry bag (thoughtfully identical to avoid fights over who gets which one)...

And don't forget her pictures (I so want to learn how she did the colors in the orange and purple picture):

Thanks for a great first time swap experience, NYX!

26  Haiku ode to Cheytown's minty fresh recon shirtdress (with pictures) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by indywriter on: August 13, 2007 10:08:46 AM
Indy makes shirtdress
And everyone falls in love
cheytown, my hero

Okay, so I loved that recon at first sight.  I went out that very day to scope out the Goodwill.  Cheytown, I hadn't even heard of recon before your lovely litlle tutorial (except in the military sense... Semper Fi, Marines). 

I am forever forgetting to take before pictures.  But I thought you might like to see some of the afters...

Sister Goldenhair loves to say cheese!

I never could get the back of the dress, but rest assured... it's there.

I'm in love with this dress, unfortunately my husband has zero cool shirts. 

Thanks again, cheytown!  You given me a new favorite project.

27  long-time lurker, first-time poster aka newbie (with project pics links) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by indywriter on: August 06, 2007 12:15:22 PM
I have been lurking around this board for some time now.  I decided it was time to share.

I made this cupcake shirt for my little one's second birthday.  I have never really sewn anything without a pattern before, but you guys gave me the courage to try something new and different.  I bought the shirt for $2 and appliqued it myself (lest anyone think I made the *entire* shirt).

It wasn't anything too difficult, but I think it turned out cute.

and a close up:

And here you can see it on my DD (aka Sister Goldenhair).  Please note that she actually is enjoying the bubbles, even though it looks as if she is upset.
