1  Birthday banner with interchangeable photo pouch in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by tiedyediva on: June 11, 2011 04:38:43 PM

Made this for my little guy's 2nd birthday (today!). I made a clear vinyl sleeve so the picture can be changed out for other family members, or you could put a message in the middle instead. It's also reversible to a pinker, girlier pattern/color scheme. All out of scraps and a pack of quilt binding I had in my extra special 'found at an old lady's yard sale' box! An almost-during-naptime project.

Full tute is on my blog, http://tiedyedivadesigns.blogspot.com/2011/06/tie-dye-diva-free-photo-pocket-flag.html

2  Petal tee made with a die cutting machine! Tutorial at link in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by tiedyediva on: December 08, 2010 03:02:24 PM
I had no idea how much fun a die cut machine is!  I made this cute petal tee in an evening (a distracted, putting-3-kids-to-bed, watching-some-TV and trying-not-to-ignore-the-husband evening).

Used my new Sizzix Big Shot, a flower shaped die and 2 identical Target clearance tees.  There's a tute on my blog here: http://tiedyedivadesigns.blogspot.com/2010/12/how-to-make-petal-tee-with-die-cut.html

3  Costume sewing - can anyone help me with V-neck??? in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by tiedyediva on: November 15, 2008 04:24:32 PM
I am really under a time crunch to get 8 smocks sewn for a play my daughter is in. They are supposed to be "beautician" type smocks for an Emerald City scene. I need them to be one size fits all and pull on quickly so I wanted to make the neckline rounded with a V-slit as shown to fit over all kinds of heads.

What I want to do is simply turn back the edges of the "V" and hem, but how do I finish the point of the V? It seems like it will be a stress point and if I simply turn and stitch the straight edges, the point will be unfinished and prone to tearing. I really don't have time to face the whole thing, is there some other way?  Thank you for any help!

That looks great! Love the yarn wig!

And here are our finished costumes, Woody's vest and Jessie's chaps both from the cow print velboa, and I decided to go ahead with yellow felt for Jessie's yoke.

5  Minnie Dress Top Set - my first time shirring! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by tiedyediva on: July 06, 2008 11:27:41 AM
Just finished this set for my daughter to wear to Disney, my first time shirring ever! I had a little machine trouble with the shirring at first (tracked it down to the bobbin thread not being threaded through the catch = no tension = big mess) but it was pretty easy! The bottoms are regular bike shorts with a double ruffle added.

I wish she had let me do a full length dress but she wanted it top length, so here it is.
