1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Bias tape disaster on a bib I'm making for baby shower gift! on: November 07, 2010 04:48:16 PM
Cute pattern.  Check.
Decent embroidery job. Check
Bias tape. FAIL!

I am a beginner and I thought that this would be an easy project!  The bias tape looks okay in the front, not perfect but, acceptable and then in the back it goes horribly wrong.  Not really sure what happened there.

Any advice on how to salvage this or maybe ideas on deconstructing it and making it into something else?
I'm making it for a co-worker of my husband's (a fan of The Office, hence the beets).  Thanks for looking and in advance for any advice you may have!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cooking Themed Quiet Book-Lot's of pictures! on: August 15, 2010 05:22:43 PM
I made this quietbook for my nephew's birthday.  My sister got him a toy kitchen so I made this "cookbook" to go with it.  Given that I'm a beginner at both sewing and embroidery, this project turned out much better than I expected.

The refrigerator, freezer, and oven open up. 

My son loves the book I will have to make him one next! Smiley
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first sewing project! Hand-tied play mat on: April 09, 2010 10:50:31 AM
I have been really wanting to try quilting but, haven't sewn anything since I took home economics in middle school!  So I decided to try and make a simple blanket for my son to play on.  My great grandma made me several hand-tied quilts so I decide to do that.  It's didn't turn out perfect but, baby doesn't seem to mind!  Smiley
Any comments/advice would be much appreciated!

I sewed the two pieces of fabric together like you would for a pillow case then turned them right side out and sealed the opening with by hand an invisible hem stitch.  I used embroidery floss to tie it.

I had a hard time keeping a straight line and I veered off course in several places!  The back piece of fabric also bunched up a lot!  Would a walking foot help with this?
4  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 49 ENTRIES / My bearded husband: A noodle portrait on: April 07, 2010 11:07:10 AM
This is my first Craftster Challenge and I had so much fun making it!
It's a portrait of my husband, Greg made out of his favorite type of noodles.

I think the curly noodles worked really well for making his beard! Smiley
