Oh, wow!  This is really great. Compared to a lot of things on Craftster, this shirt is really well-made and original.  You can see how much time and effort you put into this making it really awesome and professional.  Well done, my man!  I'm sure the owner will love it.

Yes, because this is the only place where Hannah Montana belongs.

Really excellent stuff.

I'm making one of these now, about a fourth of the way through, and I'm thinking, how am I going to bind it?  Any tips on binding the irregular edges?  Or did you cut yours even?  Maybe you should post another pic!

Looks like you had MUCH better luck with that pattern than I did. Mine was so wonky as to be unfixable. Is the fabric a flannel with a little weight? I used 100% cotton and think perhaps it didn't have the weight to lay correctly.

Actually it's wool. However I "lined" the inside with black cotton.  I thought using the same wool for the facing would be too bulky.  Also, many of the parts it said to do by machine I did by hand, like the "top stitching" where you sew the front to the facing.  I knew that would turn out terrible so I just did regular top stitching, and sewing the facing in by hand.  Hence why I said the pattern was a bit wacky.  I did my own thing and read the directions later and think I had better luck because of it. I could see how a really light weight fabric would make it more difficult!  I will make it again in different lengths in different fabrics.  Glad you like it!

Buffalo check is the new black.  I hate following trends but sometimes we do it and don't realize it.  It just permeates.  On my mission to make all built by Wendy patterns and fashion a new wardrobe;  I finished this today from Simplicity 3964.  Some of the pattern directions were real screwy, and I had to take it in a lot.  I love it just the same.

This is the first quilt I've finshed, but definitely not the first I've started.  I can't take all the credit though.  My boyfriend's mom gave him an unfinished quilt top years ago; he's had it at least as long as we've been dating, and I finally put it together.  It's backed with a vintage sheet I scored at Goodwill, tied with some extra cotton yarn I had lying around, and hand basted.  Thanks for looking!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Crazy classy fall woolen jacket on: November 23, 2008 02:54:41 PM
I finished this about a week ago.  It's from a Built By Wendy pattern 4109.  I've seen this pattern getting a bad wrap but I think it's great in the right fabric.  This jacket works well with a long sleeve shirt, dark jeans and heels.  I'm really proud of it and inspired to sew more.  I used bound button holes, and made a neat little tag too!

The jacket:

Bound button hole front and back:

My tag!

I get lots of compliments on it.  I'm making a matching skirt now and will post when I'm done.  Built by Wendy patterns are the best! I want them all!

I'm pretty sure this is an old punch embroidery needle.  You thread the wool through the side loop and the needle, and punch into the fabric leaving small loops.  It's insanley easy should you ever decide to take it up. I used to do it when I was like, 10, a lot of it.  Here is a link where they have lots of pictures of modern needles:

Nah, no glow stick for lil' Harry.  He's only about 2 inches tall at most.  This is on a post card.  I'm sure he would enjoy one though.  And some baggy pants.  I'm sure they have all that where he is heading to.

He's actually heading to Bloomington, IN.  I sure hope he makes.  I included extra postage and everything.  But you know how these things go.

Everyone should go out now and embroider your own postcards!  It was so much fun and easy!
