1  We all love sheet dresses, and mountains in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by smalaska on: June 12, 2012 11:54:33 AM

I got these sets of sheets from my grandma. One was a desert scene, which I made into a dress years ago, and this mountain one.

Since summer is here I was excited to sew up a light cotton summery day dress.

I just feel like sometimes vintage 70s sheets make the best summer dresses.

And if I love summer so much, why not look like summer?

2  simple home sweet home in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by smalaska on: May 16, 2012 03:25:08 PM
I made this as a gift for a friends wedding.
Really simple.

I've been trying to practice my word stitching.. i lose focus fast. Tongue

But it turned out pretty easy to make one of these decorative hoops. I just tacky glued the edges of the fabric down to the hoop.

3  A striped blouse, Grandma stash and hipster clothes in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by smalaska on: March 07, 2012 08:53:56 AM
I'm done with school and thought I would work on my wardrobe a bit.

This is a blouse that I made with some striped poly-cotton my grandma gifted me. Some day I hope to be the grandma that kept wonderful things to give to shy and creative grandchildren.

I made the pattern based off a collared butterick pattern that I had already altered for my small busted frame years ago.

I put the closure on the back with yellow buttons, it is more comfy and cute I think

I wore it on a date later with my husband to see our friends band play downtown slc. I couldn't help but make it hipster with my favorite pants and boots.

Thanks grandma!

you can see more pictures and details on my blog  http://dearsweetwood.blogspot.com/2012/03/blouse.html

5  Origami how-to.. shirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by smalaska on: December 16, 2008 05:07:00 PM
So, Christmas time has come, and i've been busy making goodies for friends and family. Cheesy
This one i'm especially proud of.
I took a regular old (but new) mens white tshirt, cut the neck a bit, then i made an origami crane out of white cloth.
I made a few of the fun steps, and sewed it on to the tshirt! I wish i could say it was that easy, but it wasn't.
If you want a more details, and some instructions, look at my blog http://shannonyellow.blogspot.com/ :

and the close up, of that little crane

6  Feather bows in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by smalaska on: November 21, 2008 06:08:55 PM
So i recently acquired a stack of felt pieces. The solution? Hand embroidered feathers. The better solution? Hand embroidered feather-bow headbands. Unfortanetly this only fits a  baby or small child (or partially blown balloon). I will need to make one for me someday i'm sure. But i was tickled with this one, i especially like the persimmon colored ribbon

and my beautiful, but not so willing model. The niece:

well actually this picture is the one with this headband, oops

7  Ada's Blessing dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by smalaska on: November 21, 2008 05:50:16 PM
Last month my baby niece Ada was blessed. I got to make the dress! seeing as everything else was ridiculously expensive, excessively frilly. My sister wanted something kind of vintage, and simple. I'm especially proud of the frenchseams and complete lining. And that the only fabric that i actually liked was in the interior design section of joanns, like some curtain fabric, but its soft and cream so it was perfect.

and ofcourse a picture of ada in her dress (but not all of it.. it was so long!)

8  I sympathize with Rumpelstiltskin in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by smalaska on: November 21, 2008 05:27:06 PM
really only because I never realized how difficult gold tulle was to work with. It was like working with wind, always catching and slipping etc... But i'm so happy with the results really. This is the first of three tutu's that i'm making for my nieces this christmas, its blush tulle topped with golden tulle. I'm so excited to see them all in it (3 month, 1 year and 2 years). I just can't handle baby girl clothes right now, they are too cute!

9  the infinity dress again... but in yellow! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by smalaska on: April 14, 2008 09:58:36 PM
Hey so i finally got around to making an infinity dress. I made one for my preggers sister too!
I was going to make her the yellow one, and me the grey one, but instead combined the too cloth. So yes we have the same dress but she is across the country.
I added two extra straps on the back 'cause modesty is my rule. Its not complicated, just like the front but the back. so heres some pictures...
so here its like the greek goddess thing with the square skirt, so i think i'm going to circle-ize it.

i don't remember how this happened, but i liked it

some back action

bandeau and sleeves?

this ones like, "oh i don't know what to do but still take the picture.."

anyway, i liked the colors.
thanks for looking

10  black & grey in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by smalaska on: January 26, 2008 03:15:28 PM
So during thanksgiving i decided to turn 2yards of $1 black and grey striped sweater fabric into something. It turned into a sweater! I used a  basic blouse pattern to get the sleeves right, but otherwise made the pattern up.

its quite comfy

The only thing is that i keep findingstray threads that i forgot to cut.
