21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Yellow Summery Pleated Skirt on: February 19, 2006 04:20:45 PM
What's a great thing to make on a freezing cold winter day? A short summery skirt, of course!

Actually, I lied.. it took much longer than a day. But I love it, and wish I could wear it now.. but it's not exactly the best thing for 20 degree weather. So, I guess I'll have to wait.. or just wear it around the house until it warms up outside.

It started out as a set of PB Teen sheets.. we have an outlet near us, and they had a great sale.. $7 for a set of twin sheets! SO I got a set for my bed, and another set to make matching pajama pants (it's like camouflage on my bed! where did my legs go?) and then I still had tons left and figured it would be the perfect skirt fabric!

I didn't even use a pattern.. just cut a long rectangle, then began pleating. I added a band, then a zipper.. it was tricky, I've never done one like this before, so I'm especially proud of it! And since I used the edge of the sheet, it was already hemmed! Then I just added darts around the band, and voila! It sounds simple, but.. well.. no. Smiley But totally worth it!

I still need to line it somehow, because it's such a light fabric.. you can't see through it, but I'm still not completely comfortable with it how it is. I also need to figure out a way to make my pleats stay better.. any ideas?

Overall, I'm really proud of it Smiley and I can't wait to wear it!

I had a tiny scrap if printed fleece, with these cute little animals on it, so I cut them out and sewed them together. They're two-sided, and so tiny! They had slight problems with lining up properly, so this picture is of their better side:


This is one of them with my hand, for scale.. they're really tiny!

the things you can do with a one foot square of fleece.. Smiley
24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / C is for.. Craftster! on: October 28, 2004 12:22:38 PM
This is a stuffed 'C' I made for my friend Caroline for her birthday.. the front is pink stretchy velvet, and the back is white knit with black polka dots. I also tied a ribbon on it, for an extra something.

The front:

The back:

She loved it.. and of course it looks like one of those neck pillow things, so she wore it like that for most of the day.
