11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Maternity tank for acquaintance on: July 01, 2010 01:27:21 PM
This is my first time posting something I've made.

The acquaintance (we'll call her C) saw a tanktop on a maternity website for $200, asked me if I could make something comparable. I said yes, I can. And I did.  Grin  I got nowhere near $200 for it, though.

The shell is the confetti dot fabric from Joanns. It was a pain in the toosh. It rolls, handwash only, you can't iron it, and the glue from the dots sticks to the needle. The lining is also from Joanns, it's a posh black lining, very soft. I happened to have a Butterick maternity pattern that I used; I don't remember the number but can dig it out if you want it.
It was originally a t-shirt type of pattern but I omitted the sleeves and took a bit off the shoulders.

C&C welcome.

12  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Yay! My first sewing machine came today! on: April 30, 2009 10:21:14 PM
The sewing machine was my birthday present and it arrived today. I'm going to take it slow, though, because I haven't touched a sewing machine since I was 16 (13 years ago!  Shocked ).

I've read through the tips and FAQ's, but any tips or tricks I might have missed would be great!  This sites sure sucks up a lot of my time.  Grin
13  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello from Tacoma, WA! on: April 22, 2009 06:09:04 PM
 Grin  I'm Melissa, will be 29 on Saturday, been married for almost 9 years, have a 15 month old son. We live in WA but I am originally from OK.

I'm new to crafting, waiting on my birthday gift (sewing machine!), which is Saturday. My first project is going to be cloth diapers for my son, and some cloth thingies for myself.

I've crocheted for years, can't knit, but am looking forward to sewing dipes and clothes, and to maybe getting into painting my own plates, bowls, and cups for after we move to SoCal by the end of the summer. I'm going to paint my own Disney tableware and don't want them getting broken in the move.

So hello from Tacoma!
