21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Peasant dress freak out. on: August 08, 2009 02:42:38 PM
People have a love/hate view of this dress. Me. I love it. My kids love it. Not so much everyone else. Why?? I mean I guess it's a little busy but, I think it rocks. And really, isn't that what's important? Nod to Vegbee for the peasant top tute that I modified for this lovely vision. Please ignore the juice box it was the only way to get her to sit.

22  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Fixing a mistake with machine quilting? on: August 08, 2009 02:38:05 PM
I made this really cute quilt and when i was machine topstitching the back, batting and top together something shifted and I got a couple noticable wrinkles going on the back. That are now fully quilted into the whole thing. How do I fix this without stitch ripping the whole thing apart?
23  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Spectrum baby/lap quilt on: April 15, 2009 05:21:41 AM
I love the way this quilt came together. I was inspired by a quilt set I saw at Target a few weeks ago that was rainbow-ish but they didn't have a baby size. I used bunches of different fabrics including some vintage, designer, and flannel. the binding is solid black with a solid white super comfy fuzzy fabric. I hand bound the back and freemotioned the top and batting. This is after washing.

Measures 40x39"

I have a few more photos more close ups of the colors in my folder if you want to check them out

thanks for looking!
24  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / woodland bloom baby/lap quilt on: April 07, 2009 01:27:49 PM
ok so this probably isn't anything anyone hasn't seen before but I figured this out on my own so I'm pleased as punch with it. Smiley

I used a charm pack of the Woodland Bloom fabric line but supplimented my own green, pink, brown and darker brown fabrics so I can make a seperate quilt out of the blues/reds of the line.

25  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Swanky baby/lap quilt pic heavy on: March 25, 2009 01:36:10 PM
Just got done this last night. Took me about 2 days on and off. It's 40x 37" and has a chenille back. the top and batting were machine quilted using a meandering path. the binding was hand sewn on the back and the back has a little appliqe square of the same fabrics as the front. The cream on the front is flannel. I used Moda's Swanky line from Chez Moi just one charm pack.

And on a side note, my neighbor wants me to make one for her to give as a gift and wants to know how much i'd charge...what would something like this go for, reasonably?
26  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / making wall tiles?? on: March 25, 2009 12:19:18 PM
we're currently investigating building our own house. I want this home to be a reflection of my hubby, kids and I and i  want to put lots of personal touches throughout. I woudl really like to make my own wall tiles for the bathroom and backsplash in the kitchen, maybe not floor to ceiling but either a mural or focus tiles. I'm not sure where to get unfinished tiles or if I could make them myself. Could they be sculpty in the kitchen? or how do I make tiles w/ceramics w/o a kiln or anything? I'm really new at this but this is something I'm very interested in learning. The only place I can think to go is the local paint your own pottery but they're mucho dinero.
27  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Lotsa Loungers on: March 19, 2009 03:54:15 PM
I posted a few weeks ago 3 lounge/pj pants I've made my son. I made 2 more today featuring the ever-awesome Star Wars and every boys necessity, Hot Wheels. I picked up some white T-s and Tanks from Old navy to pair with them. If you didn't catch my first post I blogged the tutorial here http://solidityofrainbows.blogspot.com/2009/02/loungers-tutorial-in-comfort.html And yes, I could barely pull him away from the Wii to take a photo of him in the pants. He wanted to wear them all day after too Smiley No better praise than that!

28  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / OVER Stimulated baby quilt and a ton of pics on: March 11, 2009 03:04:41 PM
I started out about 6 months ago knowing I wanted to make some black/red/white thing for the new baby but didn't really know what. This was really easy to put together. I cut and laid the 4.5" blocks out last night, I started sewing it this morning and finished it up this evening. This is with big gaps of taking care of kids and cooking and stuff too.

It measures 36"x31" finished. I meandering top stitched the top and batting together and hand sewn the  binding onto the backing. I used black thread for the top stitching, I've found that white can make the color look faded and I wanted this to maintain the color. The back is white terry cloth, not the cuddliest but I wanted this for more of a play mat than a snuggly blankie. I thought the terry would be absorbant and wash up well.

I appliqued 3 large squares on the back from michael millers fabrics. Some of the fabrics are MM line others are just black/white/red combo's I either had or picked up for this project.

Now my little 11 week baby boy, Max, can be properly stimulated. Smiley I can use it as a blanket, play mat for the floor, drape it over the back of the car seat so he can look at it in the car, etc.

29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mamas sewn a brand new bag on: March 04, 2009 11:54:32 AM
I saw this fabric and fell in love. I wanted to use a huge solid piece pattern to really display the art of the fabric and found the amy butler sling to be just what i wanted. My SIL has this same bag in some AB prints for use as a diaper bag that a friend made her. The hardest part of this was ironing on the interfacing mainly because i burned the heck out of my arm on the iron. Now I need to make some zipper pouches to go in it so I don't loose everything.

Anyway, here's my finished purse

close up

interior -I used the outer fabric for the pockets even though the instructions called for the lining fabric. I like this better.

30  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A new take on the Pinny pic hvy on: February 26, 2009 09:33:39 AM
Here is a pinnafore I made my 2yo. I loved making this except for the handmade binding!!!! UGH that was a PITA. I think next time I'll make it with reg. packaged binding. Though this did come out totally cute. I'm making a pair of bloomers too but it was too cold for them today. Sorry about the bed head I wanted to take it before she spilt something on it (which of course she did). I also had to bribe her with fruit snacks...
