1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: New bathing suits for the girly! on: July 09, 2017 05:07:42 AM
Those look excellent, modest, stylish, & well constructed. I'll have to check out that site for patterns, my girl needs a suit that will hold up to a full summer's worth of fun sans the dreaded sag!


Here are links to the actual patterns I used:

The black and polka-dot top is actually from a pattern for a tank top, but makes a great swim top:

And here is the pattern for the one-piece, which I made into the red and black tankini:

I added about 2 inches to the length of the middle band, and it still didn't meet the bottoms, so if you want to try making it into a tankini, I'd add lots more! Unless of course, you like the tummy peeking out - I think it's kind of cute, myself!

I used the bottom part of the one-piece (it's made in 3 pieces put together) for the bottoms of both tankinis.

Enjoy!  Smiley

Love that fabric! My daughter, however, would likely be bugged by the misspelling - she is a massive Potter Head! Smiley

So cute! Love the little heart cutout!

I have discovered that the bathing suits I have made my daughter over the years have lasted WAY longer than the store-bought ones. For instance, a suit I bought her last year (from Target, so not a high-end place) started to sag in the derrier region after only about 4 or 5 wearings. Meanwhile, she still wears a suit I made her 2 summers ago that looks great and has no sag!!

Guess it shows what using good materials will do for you, huh?

So here are two of this year's three suits (haven't snapped a pic of the third - it's a black and white one-piece version of the red and black one below):

Racerback tankini with polka dotted skirt and polka dots aroud the neck line:

This is a new pattern I got from youcanmakethis.com - it is a pattern for a one-piece suit that I turned into a tankini. I added some length to the top, but not as much as it needed. I think it's cute this way, but I was going for full tummy coverage. Oh well!

Pardon the facelessness - while I think my daughter is gorgeous, I feel a little cautious about posting pics of her online in swimsuits . . .

Thanks for looking!

It's awesome!

Thanks! She's happy with it!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Hufflepuff shirt! on: July 05, 2017 12:37:21 PM
Hello all!

So - I didn't actually sew the shirt, but I made all of the embellishments. If it belongs somewhere else, mods, please feel free to move it!

My daughter is a HUGE Harry Potter fan, and she has determined that she is a Hufflepuff. I did a search to find a HufflePuff shirt for her, but couldn't find one. At least not one that didn't cost an arm and a leg! SO - I decided to do some work and came up with this:


Apparently, the house mascot is a badger, so I found this online and copied it so I could cut it out of fabric and applique it to the shirt. I let my daughter pick out the font she liked and did Hufflepuff the same way.

Also, apparently she had already dripped something onto the shirt during breakfast. D'oh!  Roll Eyes


Back - the Deathly Hallows!


Thanks for looking!

Oh yes, the coffee beans bow tie is fun!!  Cheesy
But so is the Tardis, you have to be a Whovian to see what it is, I like that  Wink

Of course you can persuade some boy to wear them! These are fun and of course very cool!
I pinned the tutorial for future use. I happen to know a man who would want and wear one!  Smiley

Thanks again! The other side of the tardis tie is a little more obvious - I figure people can go for whichever side floats their boat! And the tutorial is pretty quick and easy, and only requires 1/4 yard of fabric, so easy on the wallet, too!

and here is a picture of (almost) all the others I have made - one with bicycles on it escaped the picture somehow . . . .

My hubby has claimed the coffee one, but the others will be headed to a local store! I figure if they don't sell, I know lots of guys who might be persuaded to wear a funky bow tie at some point!  Grin

So my hubby and I went to a Derby Day party yesterday, and the hubster decided he needed a bow tie. What's a girl to do other than make one (or several)?

Here is the one he wore to the party:

And here is the other one I made, 'cuz if you're cutting fabric anyway, might as well make two, right?

This picture was taken before we figured out how to tighten the knot properly . . .

I then made three more, because they are fun and easy - a Star Wars one, a Batman one and a Dr. Who (of course!). I don't have pics of them now, but they are cool and quirky and really fun to make! I have about 7 others cut out and waiting to be sewn up . . . . I'm on a roll!

here is where I found the pattern:
