1  Polka Dot Cradle Bedding in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by LagamorphLounge on: June 14, 2009 02:09:10 PM
I finally took a pic today with all the pieces in it, including the baby.  Now doesn't he look happy with his new bed set?

When I was 9 months pregnant I realized that it was was impossible to find bedding for an old fashioned cradle, so with a few yards of fabric and some spare time that I didn't really have I whipped this up:

And my little cat helper Rupert tested it out just to make sure it was comfy!

My little boy loves it and it has really worked out well.  I couldn't be happier with it.

P.S.  It also has a matching bumper pad that is brown flannel on the inside and the polka dot on the outside.  It is trimmed with red piping and ties with red ribbon.

So I got home from being on a roadtrip all weekend and this is what I found: 

A really super awesome travel changing pad in great green fabric
A carrot shaped pacifier holder

A green and white polka dot bib
2 green and white crocheted washcloths
and my absolute favorite:

A crocheted bunny that is way too cute for words!

Everything was great and I really appreciate it all!  I'm amazed at people who could crochet like this, I can bascially only do your standard stitching to make either A. a pot holder or if I make it longer B. a scarf!

Me and my boyfriend took a 9 1/2 hour trip to Kenai, Alaska this weekend and let's just say that 9 1/2 hours in one direction in the car is brutal.  That'll be our last trip until after the baby comes!  I obviously didn't get much crafting done, but did take some great pictures.  I know that they are not at all baby crafting related, but I thought that everyone would like to see what it still looks like here. 

And on a purely crafty note, I am a little more than 1/2 way done with all my projects for my swap partner.  I'm really excited, to send them out.  Now that the kiddos are on spring break and with their momma (I'm their stepmom), I should be able to really put the sewing machine pedal to the metal and finish off the rest.  Yay!

4  More Pinafores....I have way too much free time! (4 pics) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by LagamorphLounge on: March 04, 2009 08:20:41 PM
  So I looked at the responses and since a few people thought that my last one was cute I thought I'd do some more.  The flower one is 0-3months and the anchors one is 12months.  I do have a pattern, but I can't remember the number.  It also has a pattern for bloomers and a sun hat.  I have the bloomers all cut and sewn, but haven't done the casings for elastic.  I really like the anchors, and if this baby is a girl, it may have to stay mine!

5  small additions turn eh to ah! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LagamorphLounge on: March 04, 2009 09:44:52 AM
So I bought this maternity t shirt dress at the salvation army for about $2 a few days ago.  It's a really pretty coral type color, but super plain.  I tried my hand at applique and I think it turned out pretty well.  So no more boring eh, now happy ah.  What do ya think?  I know it isn't intricate by any standard, but I'm happy with it. Now I just have to wait for the snow to melt to actually wear it!

6  Old fashioned pinafore in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by LagamorphLounge on: March 03, 2009 09:46:09 PM
So I just started making these.  I think it came out pretty good, although the pictures are a bit crappy.  I am contemplating selling some of these at a fundraising craft fair next month, but want to be sure that they get good reviews first.  I think it is very feminine, and not at all my taste, but a friend has a little girl about to turn 1 and it suits here to a t.  Let me know what you think, is this something that looks good and parents would have their little girls wear?  Thanks for any comments.

7  My way cool new bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by LagamorphLounge on: March 01, 2009 07:47:14 PM
So I bought Simplicity 2685 a few weeks back from JoAnn's 99cent pattern sale.  I just got around to sewing it.  I used some fabric I had in my stash, as well as a button that I've had forever.  Getting the pleating just right while keeping the top of the bag straight was a bit of a hassle.  Also, I thank god I remember where I put my loop turner, the handles would have been hell without it!  Overall, I'm super stoked about my new bag.  I think it came it pretty awesome, especially since I normally make clothing, so purses are still really new to me.  Hope you think it's as cool as I do!

Oh yeah, the pocket was my own addition.  What is a purse if there are no pockets to store all your crap in?  I also omitted the stitching around the pleating.  I don't think anyone will notice, and it helped me to keep my sanity.  I have no desire to stich around like 15 individual pleats!

8  My first ever post in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LagamorphLounge on: February 18, 2009 04:50:47 PM
So this is my first ever post, and I am admittedly a bit nervous about the feedback.  I am 7 months pregnant and was hitting an ugly wall when it came to maternity clothes.  WE ARE NO LONGER IN THE 80'S PATTERN COMPANIES!!!  So I adapted a Simplicity pattern to cover my ever growing belly.  My bust has gotten quite large since getting pregnant, so i tried an easier pattern that fit there.  I pivoted the lower half out about 3 inches and added about 3 1/2 inches to the length.  I think it fits pretty well and have already made some more in other fabrics so I can stop wearing my boyfriends T-shirts everywhere I go.  Please tell me what you think (and try to be nice).  I'd love to hear some comments from other sewers!  Thanks.
