21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Yarnies Vs Sewists Rd2 Signups closed send by August 30 on: August 02, 2010 08:11:31 AM
Hooray! I finished my project. But since since I'm so early, I think I'll hold onto it a little while longer and maybe add more to it.  Grin

I *finally* caught up on 30-something pages on this thread. And I *finally* ditched my family and made a special trip to the fabric store and I *FINALLY* started on my project for Lellibo. It has been brewing in my head since we got partners!
And, seriously, I think this may be one of the best things I've ever made. I'm honestly a little giddy about it! Can't wait for tomorrow and hope that I can get my little one to nap while my big one is in summer school Smiley

This is my first swap, too. I wonder if I'll get addicted. . .
23  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilted Picnic Blanket + Tote & Napkin Roll-ups, a wedding gift on: July 26, 2010 08:34:20 AM
My friend got married this weekend, and I made her and her new husband this quilted picnic blanket. The clouds are made from fleece and the birds are connected by a skinny piece of lace trim. The heart is made of a sparkly red vinyl and the name banner is trimmed in gold thread. The rest of the blanket is made with cotton quilting fabric and the batting is natural organic cotton. I didn't wash the fabric before sewing so that it would pucker and have a bit more of a vintage feel. In addition to the blanket, I made a carrying tote that included plates and utensil sets for two. I also made roll-up napkins for the utensils to be tucked into.

Super cute! The fabric is beautiful. Thank you for the tute link I got on here to find some cute skirt tutes today.

I actually compiled a bunch of tutorials from all over the web for the skirt challenge. If you scroll to the bottom of this link, the last 4 posts are the tute lists: http://hideousdreadfulstinky.blogspot.com/search/label/summer%20of%20no%20pants

They are in categories of Pencil skirts, Patchwork/scrap skirts, reconstructed/upcycled skirts and aline skirts.

I did a quick search-it is called Dots and Food from the Kiss the Cook collection by David Textiles.: http://www.davidtextilesinc.com/fabric-by-the-yard/cotton-prints/kiss-the-cook/1172/893/d/893/20951/productdetail.aspx

There is a similar print that has girl colors: http://www.davidtextilesinc.com/fabric-by-the-yard/cotton-prints/kiss-the-cook/1172/893/d/893/20952/productdetail.aspx

It's gorgeous! Do you know who the designer of the fabric is? I love the button :-)

The selvage says "DAVID TEXTILES, INC." but there is no name for the print. I bought it at a bargain fabric store for $1.75/yd.

Gorgeous, and if you wanted to add some stiffness to the bottom you could still do it even though it's finished.
Just cover some needlepoint plastic (is that what it's called?) in your fabric, make a pocket put in plastic then sew it up adding some velcro to the bottom before you finish it then pop it in the lunch sack, if you need to machine wash the bag then you just take out the bottom piece because it's removable, neat huh!  Wink

That's a great idea! Thanks!

I didn't use a pattern. I was thinking of doing a tute on it, though, after making some revisions to the design. My 2-year-old really wants one of his own:)
 I'll be sure to add the link here if I do a tute!

This is a quick little project I whipped out for my 3-year old son, Huck. He needed a snack sack for summer school. It is a little smaller than a regular lunch sack-just big enough for a juice box,a pack of animal crackers and a clementine. It has a little strap on the back (that matches the lining) that he can either hold or sling over his shoulder. If I did it again, I'd probably add a stiff rectangle of something (heavy interfacing? plastic? something washable.) to the bottom of the sack so that it would hold it's shape better when it is picked up and loaded with yummies.

UPDATE: I made a tutorial for this on my blog/Flickr (very, very, very image heavy, so I couldn't easily do it here). The tute is slightly modified from the original to correct some issues I discovered after some use:
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Sunny Summer Dress on: June 29, 2010 10:02:27 AM

This one is my own design-no pattern, no single source of inspiration. My original idea was to have a small calico print on top and a larger print on bottom. then I did a lot of mixing and matching fabrics until I found a combo I liked, grabbed some lace and then winged it until a wearable dress emerged. The lace sash at the hip tends to bunch up as I wear the dress, though, so I need to figure out a way to keep it flat. Maybe I just need to sew it on and add a zipper to the thing.
I'm not usually one to wear strapless dresses, but I'm trying harder to get out of my comfort zone, clothing wise. I also thought this would be good for evening out my perpetual farmer's tan. (Not so visible here because I am vain enough to Photoshop out such unflattering variations in skin tone-along with giant blue veins and a big ol's bruise. Cut me some slack! At least I didn't thin up my fatty fatso arms!)
Anyway, this is another cheap-o dress. The bottom fabric was a great find-Robert Kaufman's Lucky Girl found for $1/yard and the calico on top was $1.75. I bought a bunch of lace from someone destashing on Etsy, too, so cheap, cheap, cheap!
