1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Use a coaster , not my one up 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

I love it, can't wait to see it finished!  Very inspired!

Rock Lobster was my favourite song when I was young (well, not that young)!  My kids' current favourite is The Ting Tings 'That's not my name', I'd struggle to get that theme on a dress!  Grin
  yeah were having the same problem with great dj .. and the drums the drums the drums

do you have a tute for that dress, it is one of the cutest things I've ever seen!

  I traced an Aline dress she already had (non stretchy this fabric didnt stretch either!) over the button up in crayon making sure to get the arm hole shape  seam ripped the pocket off and cut it out

Sew the side seams and hem the skirt

 for the sleeves i used the hem the sleeves had just cut it off an inch  or two in so i had two little rings with one side hemmed  gathered and sewd in the arm hole space

I like top stitching and i think it makes ruffles lay right but you dont have to retrace every seam

I matched the pocket to the plaid but looking back it would've been way cooler tilted and over the side seam
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Plaid is rad *text tute* now with more lobster 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
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Christmas 2008 idea - grocery bags on: August 03, 2008 06:55:57 AM
Our earth baggers have started making felt iron ons of the general food to go into it  so they keep the broccoli away from the shampoo or runny meat

I.E seperate bags with cute food logos
One with apples and carrots
One with steaks and chicken legs
One for eggs and bread and light bulbs
One for chemicals and paper goods

You can also make little drawstring produce bags ive only seen one person with them and the others wishing they had some

Google cartoon food and you can print off iron on paper
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pinafore bubble dress - freestyle 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

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: First pencil skirt on: August 02, 2008 02:50:08 AM
i love it OMG Iam so jealous, p.s. yay torrid!

You dont even need the pattern it just ended up being like two yards has wayy enough i bought that much intending to line it ... 7" zipper some stretchy fabric and basically trace yourself laying down and leave seam allowance and extra room for darts up top like an inch each dart
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / First pencil skirt 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
