1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / "Snuggler" for swaddling baby on: October 02, 2011 09:24:50 PM

I heard back from the mom. She loved it but made too comments:

baby out it grow it too soon and the velcro was too short.

If you're going to make it recommend adding two inches to the bottom part all around (where the baby's legs go) and using longer velcro.

"Snuggler" made with a pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's book, Simple Sewing for Baby that was made available as a free download from CRAFT.


My friend had been grumbling that all clothes for girls are always pink I searched for a not-too girly, happy print. I wanted to get something coordinating on the inside but I couldn't find a bold complementary solid that matched the vibrant hues and another print seems too much - thus, white as a default.

The pattern calls for a fleece on the inside but living in a southern California opted for flannel instead. I'm not a fan of how the stitching around the velcro shows through (even using black in the bobbin and white in the top). If I made another one I might put use a heavyweight interfacing on the wrong side of the flannel.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Have sheer fabric - need EASY, cute shirt pattern on: November 01, 2010 08:23:50 PM

Just scored some sheer black fabric that is kind of gauzey with some sequins for $2 yard. I'm still a new sewer - mostly bags and other things that don't have to fit. I'm looking for an easy pattern, maybe with an empire waist. AND, I'm off to Vegas in two weeks and want something cute to wear. I scoured the books at the fabric store and couldn't find anything -- any suggestions?
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Dressed Up on: November 24, 2009 07:27:30 PM
Hi - this is my first Craftster post after watching from the sideline for a long time.

I always see repainted furniture but in the past was too scared to try it. Then, while unemployed and preparing for a friend's visit I decided to paint my dresser and figured if it turned out bad I'd just make it black. I had wanted to get new hardware but who knew drawer pulls were so expensive? In the end the original hardware fit in well.  I really like the final result.

NOTE: I learned the hard way that if you let each coat dry completely before applying the next the layers of paint won't bond correctly and now the top is sticky.
