I haven't been crafting as much as i'd like - - chemo side effects.  Embarrassed

But I've done some kids clothing for the Guild shop. I've been using scraps from my sister's sewing to make baby ribbon skirts that I pair with onesies. So far I've done about a dozen.

I've also been up-cycling boys shirts.

And I've got a laundry hamper full of stuff waiting for me to work on - baby quilts, doll blankets, more up-cycling stuff, more ribbon skirt material, and some adult clothes to work on too. Hopefully I'll get some stuff done this weekend.

A before & after shot - - sort of.
Working on beading a pair of baby shoes. I'm going to put a tiny medallion where the "laces" are. Turquoise coloured beads, cotton material that looks like beadwork.

Working on shoes this tiny is harder than i thought it would be.

Kbrison - it wasnt tedious, just frustrating because we were going on measurements instead of an actual baby,  in the end the head opening was too big - but that was ok since it was one less thing for her to fuss over. We couldnt put copper cones on it since she isnt walking yet. I thought the satin might be too hot but she didnt seem to mind.
When it came time for pictures- she didnt want anything to do with that. She wanted to eat!

Finished today!

For the most part this was an easy project. A bit of trouble going around the maple leaf and the beak. As usual I only see my mistakes. Overall I am happy with it.

Although, I am more of a Tigers fan.

Well......finally done this!
Between school and my procrastination tendencies I'm not too surprised it has taken me this long.
I finished the beadwork in Jan., the edging in Feb., forget when I did the backing. But I did the necklace the other day. But then my perfectionist tendency kicked in and I took it apart and redid it during the World Cup game today.

Since this is my first medallion, as is custom I will give it away. At dinner I will give it to my own personal WW - my sister-in-law. She's an amazing person and has helped & encouraged me so much when I decided to return to school.

6  ribbon shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by wryly on: May 02, 2018 10:42:16 AM
I found a really nice black pull-over dress shirt and thought it would make a perfect ribbon shirt for a friend.

The shirt was long sleeved, metal zipper from hem to just under the armpit, 3 buttons at collar and a small-is front pocket.

I sewed Pride coloured ribbons on a scrap piece of material and had them come from the pocket, over the shoulder and around the back. I just had them follow the shape of the shirt. Left the ribbons long so my friend could cut them to the length he likes. Did the same for the cuffs - - but added snaps because they look better than buttons.

Thankfully - he got it before graduation, it fits and he likes it!

Done school - - for a few weeks anyway. Have been de-stressing by crafting.

Decided to bling out some shoes. Will probably try sell them at our artists guild this summer.

beaded Wonder Woman medallion.
I've been working on this, off & on, since last summer. Over the holidays I pulled it out and swore I would be done the beading part by the end of this week. For once I've hit deadline! Yay. Smiley
I still have to put edging on, backing, and the necklace/rope (which may or may not be beaded, too).

Wonder Woman beaded medallion.
I've been working on this (off & on) since last summer. Today I finally finished the beading. Now I have to put edging on, backing, then the rope/necklace part.

CLM - I'm doing the TAST stitch-along. This week is the running stitch. But, as usual, I'm late (just started prepping my material)!
          The bias tape is for the top of the sewing machine cover - - to outline the slot for the machine's carrying handle.
          The bias tape is made out of material my sister used to make a skirt and ribbon shirt for a little girl. It is lime green with        little ladybugs on it.

I just did the bias tape today - - hopefully I will sew it on tomorrow.
