2  so easy!! 2 hour dress! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by atomickim on: August 09, 2009 06:16:57 PM
my 9 year old step daughter has been bugging me to make her a dress for her first day of school in two weeks.  we went to the store and she picked out the pattern herself. i had just went to the local goodwill and picked up a bunch of nifty looking bedsheets. she picked out her own as well. and then after dinner we sat down at my sewing table and 2 hours later ( after i had to sem rip out the skirt part, my fault i sewed it wrong =P) she had a first day of school dress!

i havent put on the straps yet she has decided whether she wants it as a halter or a tank

and the reason i love using sheets! pre hemmed!

i used this pattern View C size 10

3  "Hey Chica!" Vogue dress pattern V8184 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by atomickim on: March 02, 2009 08:11:16 PM
hello all! its been a while since i've posted a project on here

so my boyfriend received his tax return and then let me loose in a Joann's for an hour. so $64 later i come out with this material . its by Alexander Henry, i forgot the actual name of it.
my boyfriend thinks im crazy for making a dress using this material but i love it. its loud and pretty kick ass =P

i used a moditfy version of Vogue Pattern V8184 view c
the things i changed were i added another panel for the skirt because i didnt think it poofed out enough for when i wear a petticoat under it

im thinking of changing the straps to a different color (what do you think?)

upclose view of the fabric

just a pic to show how im going to wear it =P

4  mod dog! first dog craft! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by atomickim on: November 23, 2008 11:07:01 AM
i adopted this cutie yesterday from the local animal shelter.
shes a beagle mix around a year old.
her name is Betsy. she is the best dog i've ever seen!
and so cute too!

i live in ohio and its freakin cold and my poor baby was shivering in the cold when i took her out. so i went to the store to try and find some doggy coats but when i saw the prices i decided to make my own. i found this free pattern online

i had to alter it a bit
 i lined it in some fleece with some left over black & white checker cotton on top.

and here is Betsy modeling

this is my first doggy project

and i have more fleece left over so im going to make her more coats!

5  an abused vanity given new life! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by atomickim on: September 07, 2008 03:14:53 PM
i just recently moved from a 1 bedroom house to a 4 bedroom house..so what do i do?! get more stuff of course! my great aunt asked me to come over and help her move some things out of the basement to be thrown away..one thing caught my eye. a vanity! i've always wanted one. my great aunt said i could have it because the family members that were living with her ruined it.

i gladly hauled it back to my house, a different state.
this is what the vanity looked like when i got it

the mirror had marker, stickers,,even candy stuck on it!

with a little help from my boyfriend. the vanity transformed into this!

it comes with a little stool but i havent even started on it
and hopefully eventually ill get new handles for the drawers

7  Spiderwebs! eek! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by atomickim on: August 19, 2008 07:45:54 PM
so i just finished this dress. the pattern is some Vogue pattern. i kinda fudged my way through it and had to make alot of alterations to make it fit me correctly. i bought the fabric at walmart for 2 bucks a yard. they already have the halloween fabric on the clearance racks!!

** dont mind my dead look there. im tired! =P**
oh yea i still need to hem it =P

i have no idea why the straps look like they are uneven. i swear its not like that in real life =P
and cause i couldnt get the fit just right i added a corset back
