41  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Some little Suasage dogs for a friend. on: January 16, 2010 03:03:58 AM
I found this pattern in Sew Hip magazine here in the UK and I thought these would be perfect for my friend! She absolutely loves Daschunds but can't have one just yet so I made her some! There are two here: the red and cream one was obviously the first one made because it's just atrocious. I'm giving it to her anyway because he has a certain lovable charm to him (look at that wee face!). The blue one I made out of sheer embarrassment for the first one. He was made from some left over material from a skirt I made.

Let me know what you think! I know they're a bit wonky but I think they're cute anyways :-)

(images are here, because I can't post pics up yet - sorry!)
42  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first completed skirt! on: January 16, 2010 02:56:32 AM
I always end up making dresses (they're just so easy to wear!) so this time I decided to try a skirt. I used some fabric from Ikea which is upholstery fabric, but has a nice stiff quality to it that lends itself to the pleats. The pattern came from the Twinkle by Wenlan book. I didn't line it mostly as I could be bothered and because I have enough slips and things to wear underneath it. Anyway here are a couple of pics, let me know what you think!

That's beautiful! A friend is pregnant at the minute and is finding that a lot of the affordable maternity clothes are quite boring or frumpy. I might pass this on to her for inspiration! Well done xxx

Hi everyone! i'm new here but I've been sewing for a few years now. I've just bought myself a knitting book in the Borders UK closing down sale with the intentions of re-learning the skill (I used to knit in primary school when i was about 7 but haven't done anything since!) and this seems like the perfect kick up the backside to get me going.

For my 50 projects I would like to do/make:
1) A quilt 14th January
2) A skirt 11th January
3) An everyday dress
4) A formal dress
5) a knitted jumper
6) A crocheted blanket
7) Some toys for my friends baby (due in 5 weeks!)
Cool Learn how to customise a dress pattern
9) Design my own dress pattern...
10)...then make it
11) Make some curtains
12) Make some organizers for my stash (bundled into crappy ikea cardboard boxes at the minute!)
13) Make my own fabric by learning how to screenprint (by BH has the equipment which he has only used once or twice!)
15) Make a new chair cushion for my Ikea Poang chair (it's cream and it shows up all the cat hairs - yuck)
16) Recon at least one item of clothing
17) Recon some old clothes using embroidery
18) complete a cross stitch
19) Make some cushions for my friend and her better half (I have an idea for this already!)
20) Knit/crochet some gloves
21)...and a hat
22) Make some christmas tree ornaments
23) Try one new recipe every week
24) Bake using new and different ingredients Lavender cupcakes made 15th January, iced 16th.
25) Make some new cushion covers for the living room
26) make new chair cushions for the dining room
27) Make a stuffed Dachshund for a friend (she loves them and can't have a dog of her own!) completed 15th January (completed before that but the fruit of my efforts was fairly dire!)
28) Make my BH a new Batman quilt.
29) Make bunting for my friends baby shower (completed! Will upload grainy pics later)
30) Make something to sell!
31) Try sewing with stretch fabrics (my nightmare at the minute!)
32) Present for my mum
33) Housewarming present for my friend
34) make a new apron
35) Make a fancy dress costume
36) Fix all the clothes that are waiting to be fixed! (Mostly zip replacements on 2 dresses and a skirt)
37) Finish my sari dress
38) Make some reusable sandwich wrappers
39) Make a bicycle bag for my new bike (not yet used - do you know how cold it is out there?!)
40) Make some cat beds/toys (the latter is proving more important since the littlest one refuses to go outside and is destroying everything in sight, as well as tormenting the other cat)
41) Dye an item of clothing
42) Make some underwear
43) Make a fascinator
44) Make some Star wars plushies for my BH
45) Make a Valentine's gift for my BH
46) Make some nightdresses with hidden support (these things are so expensive! There has got to be a cheap way of making them)
47) Customise some bathroom towels
48) Make a proper, steel boned corset
49) Make some jewelry
50) Sew some patches on a bag for my BH

Some are smaller than others, here's hoping all are achievable!
