2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Feather hair clip on: February 23, 2009 07:40:00 AM
My friend is having a black and white themed wedding and I wanted something to jazz up my outfit.  Inspired by Threadbangers, here is my first attempt:

It was much easier than I expected.  It's not perfect and I might add some buttons to it or make another one to have choices, but I like the outcome. 

Just wanted to share!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first quilt, finally completed! (Lots o' pics!) on: June 16, 2008 09:47:31 AM
I am so excited, I finally, FINALLY finished my first quilt this weekend!  It was supposed to be  a present for my daughter's 2nd birthday, it's about 3 months late...I started it in December 07 and have been working on it whenever I have time, which isn't often.

I'm really happy with how it turned out, even though there are a ton of mistakes.  She loves it, so that's really all that matters!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / First post! Easter dress and valentine's shirt on: March 25, 2008 11:42:38 AM
OK, so I'm a little late with the shirt, but better late than never!!

These are my first 2 attempts at clothes.  The first is a Valentines peasant top.

Next, is my daughter's Easter dress.  

Just wanted to share.  I'm working on her birthday outfit right now (first time working with a pattern!) so I will post again as soon as it's done.  Wish me luck!
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / What's the deal with the walking foot??? on: January 30, 2008 07:49:25 AM
Hi everyone!  I am new to quilting and sewing in general.  My first project has been a quilt for my daughter's 2nd birthday.  It started out as toddler sized but I went ahead and made it full size so she can have years of use.

I am just about to finish the quilt top but have some questions on the actual quilting part.  I keep reading about a walking foot for the machine.  Is this really necessary?  The pattern I used is a foursquare with borders so there's no fancy curves or anything, just straight lines.  I know I can drop the feeddogs all the way down on my machine, will that help?

My other question is, how do you determine where to do the quilting?  Do you just follow the lines in the top pattern or just make up your own design?  What type of stitch should I use (straight, zigzag, basketweave)?

Any help or advice would be appreciated.
