1  Budweiser Top/Costume in Halloween Costumes by kateb2637 on: October 22, 2008 07:24:15 PM
So, my step-sister is going to be a Budweiser beer can for Halloween. I haven't seen the completed costume (which is why this isn't on the costume board), but she asked me to make the top. She plans to wear the top by itself after Halloween too.

She found an old childrens (!!!) bed sheet with Budweiser all over it, so I cut a bunch of them out, and appliqued them onto a top that she bought. It took a lot longer than I expected, and didn't turn out exactly how I wanted, but I think it's what she wanted, so I guess that's what matters!! She arranged them and pinned them on the top, all I did was sew!

So, onto the pictures!

She's going to wear silver leggings, silver boots, and some sort of silver cardboard thing on her head! I think it's going to be pretty cool!

3  August's Creations! Pic Obese in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kateb2637 on: September 02, 2008 05:14:19 PM
I just started sewing. I've sewn before, but not in years and years, and never with a machine. I've also never used a pattern before. So, this summer, when my grandma gave me her machine, I decided to jump right in!

Blanket Statement: Don't mind my horrible hair and face!!
The first project I finished was, like everyone, an infinity dress.

Here's the Fabric

So, I bought it for $2 a yard at JoAnns. I really love it. It's so comfy!

OK, so the next dress I tried was a pattern (my first!). McCall's M5662. I took the sleeves from look F and the rest from look D, and lengthened the bottom.
$2 a yard knit that is pretty heavy. I like how it fits, and it's perfect for work.

It looks a bit crazy on Bree (my dress form), but I think it looks perfectly fine on me!

Then I made another dress from the same McCall's pattern. I took look D and lengthened it, but I used almost a decorating fabric that I got at IKEA, so I had to add a zipper (my first!!). This is my favorite, by far. I am going to wear it to work tomorrow, and I wore it to go see Dark Knight in IMAX.

This last dress is not finished yet, but I can't decide if I should do the braided straps or the normal. Ideas? Comments? Please help!

And then some assorted others.
I made some sweat pants because my favorites suddenly have holes all over them! So I ripped them apart and used them as a pattern!

And then a skirt that isn't finished, and might not ever be finished! I made it while watching Pretty Woman.

So, comments? I'm just starting out, so be nice!!

4  Broken Sears Kenmore from the 60s (pics) in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by kateb2637 on: June 15, 2008 04:07:14 PM
Hi guys!
I got this cool old sewing machine from my grandma who first got it in the 60s or 70s (she can't remember any more!) and I get it down to my place (400 miles from grandma)) turn it on...and it won't work.
BUT it was working a couple days ago when she gave it to me, so I think I'm just doing something wrong.

Anyway, when I press on the foot the motor runs, but the needle doesn't move. If I loosen the clutch knob I can wind a bobbin, but once it's tight nothing works.
We cleaned and oiled it when she gave it to me, so there shouldn't be any problem with that.

It's a model 1315 if that helps anyone.

Please help me!! I really want to get to work on this dress!!!

Here are some pictures, just to get an idea of the machine!

Just wanted to share my finished product!
I clearly either used too large a hook or am just too loose, so it turned out quite a lot larger than I originally expected. I didn't add the fringe because my mom is going to use it as a shawl and my little sister will probably use it as a blanket.

I can't wait to make one for myself!

Ok, so here's my little guy!

Just chillin'

She only has 7 legs...there just wasn't any more room!! She's also a bit wonky. I didn't make the legs/tentacles according to the pattern but rather decided to just freestyle them all. So they're all different sizes and shapes. I like it though!
She's getting shipped out to my little sister on Friday!

ok, so I spent 4 hours tonight and thought I'd post update pictures!

I feel like I've gotten the hang of it & it's coming along!

8  Bunny Slippers in Grey in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by kateb2637 on: April 07, 2008 11:37:09 AM
Hey all!
I made six or seven pairs of these slippers for my friend's Christmas gifts two years ago ('06). I didn't take any pictures (gah!) but they were black, pink, white, and grey. I kept a grey pair for myself (below).
I really like this pattern. It was simple, and I found it easy to modify as I went for different sizes. I added fuzzy fur in the soles to make them more soft. Two years later and they're still going strong!

I think I'm going to make some more for my grandma's birthday!
