1  Use a coaster , not my one up in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by impishremorse on: August 09, 2008 10:06:08 PM

I was looking for something nintendo and ocd for a birthday gift and saw perler bead coasters .
Turns out theyre little plastic tubes you set out and iron together and especially good for people who like to nit pick at things
I think it came out really rad and im going to make a few other sets from different classic games for xmas just line the bottom with felt

2  Plaid is rad *text tute* now with more lobster in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by impishremorse on: August 06, 2008 09:53:37 AM
I finished the first leg in Auroras new dress, this started life as a mens button down and i still have some stenciling to do ill modify this post when thats done

I plan on stenciling in a lobster across the back in the same red as the plaid and write  B-52s on the side seam bottom (her favorite song is rock lobster right now)

*edit*  Final pictures with the stencil work i used 'basic' brand acrylic dads an artist and i never saw a spot of the stuff wash off

Im very proud of the final result

she is totally wearing it over play clothes the green sleve dosent belong

3  Pinafore bubble dress - freestyle in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by impishremorse on: August 02, 2008 10:24:06 PM
I found this lovely fabric (slight stretch wide faint pin stripe some kinda horrible plastic goodness in a very dark brown )  in the dollar bin and knew it would be a fall jumper for Aurora but a straight A line would be too boring

I made the bubble skirt by banding the bottom of a circle skirt she snuck out of bed around the time i finished to check what id made and she still hasnt taken it off to be labeled

*edit* ok an adult one is in the works

4  First pencil skirt in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by impishremorse on: August 01, 2008 08:36:46 PM
 My first post in adult clothing section and my first clothes for myself in years (home made ... not like i didnt get clothes..)

This was a simplicity pattern bastardized  (stretch denim , no lining, side zipper, high waisted)

The red ribbon is to show how high up the skirt hits Hopefully with a wide banded belt it will hit about bra line like the new secretary dresses at torrid

6  MuMu and new new in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by impishremorse on: July 31, 2008 09:12:39 PM
I finally made my dress form for my two year old as we all know toddlers dont always want to stick around for adjustments
The whole process took less than an hour

I cut a small trash bag into a floppy vest and wrapped her below the bottom and to the collar in masking tape (Carefully!)
cut the back and shoulder seams to get it off I dont know if shes really awesome or if kids dont mind playing mummy
I put a hanger with a spinny hook inside and taped over the neck and arm holes stuffing with fiber fill taping shut and covering with stockings

Showing off the dress form modeling some freaky mumu that happend when trying to free form night gowns

Finally made clothing labels with print off fabric paper from hobby lobby $13 made enough of these babies to last atleast a year

I know you might not think this belongs in the kids forum but just because its not all about the clothes dosent make it non relevant

*edit* the hanger arms were very creepy i wound up stuffing them and sewing the ends shut

8  shirt to hoodie dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by impishremorse on: July 26, 2008 05:47:42 PM
I finally finished a hoodie ive been avoiding making for awhile this is jsut a mock up of her fall hoodie but the general idea is to make it long enough so it can be worn over stockings or bunched up over jeans. This also is a first attempt at sewn ears.
She loves the skirt pulled down to her knees and the hood up (back says not so sweet) another thrifted tshirt

This was a simple ringer tee I got for 44 cents at a thrift store  I just traced one of Auroras favorite a-line dresses over and rearranged the red edging I love the sleeves they were unexpected I can see a few more of these in the near future
