I selected fabric today! And here's a hint for Aeon:

This is not your fabric:

92  Cell Phone Holster - Now with Take 2 - img heavy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by 85%confusion on: August 01, 2008 12:19:38 PM
I know - it's not a purse, bag or wallet, but it does hold something, so I guess this is where it goes? I made this for my 9-year-old's cell phone, but even though I measured her phone, it ended up a bit to wide and short, and ended up fitting my phone instead. So, back to the drawing board for her phone.

I made it out felted wool for the holster and canvas strap for the belt loop thingy. I used a vintage embroidery pattern for the design. I did machine stitch the pieces together; the blanket stitching is decorative only. I wish it were more my style, but I doubt I'd ever use this.

And since the first didn't work for my girl, here is the second, slightly modified, and a perfect fit.

So I was digging through some of my vintage Needlecraft magazines, looking for some inspiration, and thought I'd share a few of the aprons in them. These are all from 1921 issues.

94  Dogwood Blossoms in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by 85%confusion on: July 17, 2008 03:53:52 PM
Yeah - another bib. Sorry. I'll be off this kick soon. =)

This one I love though, so I had to share. I hand embroidered the dogwood blossoms - it was a vintage embroidery transfer pattern from the 1940s, meant for a sheet set. I chose some retro-reminiscent colors to do the work in, and found a pink hand-dyed batik that was looking lonely in my stash, for the back.

95  Tuxedo Bib in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by 85%confusion on: July 15, 2008 08:56:19 PM
O.k., so not exactly clothing... but I've been having a blast making baby bibs as of late. That's what happens when your sis is preggers and the neighbor has just dropped by with her newborn.

This was pretty easy to make. I pre-pleated the fabric, then cut it out from the pattern I created. The bib is bright white and the bow tie is a pretty purple batik (sorry - the colors didn't photograph so well).
