Did you use a laundry marking pen or a sharpie? Or something else?

Very nice! I haven't tried mixing batts of yarn together, but this makes me want to give it a try.

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Girly Steampunk Dress on: August 07, 2012 06:22:58 PM
This is my second dress using the McCall's M6504 pattern. I changed the sleeves again, and shortened the neckline a bit. This time I lined the dress as well, to make it sturdier, and so I don't have to worry about finding a slip. As usual, I added pockets. This is one of my favourite dress patterns right now. It's comfortable, flattering, and easy to to make.

I'm calling this my "girly steampunk" dress, or my "steampunk light" dress. The fabric has keys, lockets, and chains on it, and I absolutely loved it when I saw it. It was 40% off, too, so it came home with me. I made the mistake, though, of not realizing that it was 60 inches wide, not 40, and bought enough for the dress if it had been 40 inches wide. So I'm making a skirt out of the fabric, too. The lining is a fine brown cotton that I found at the thrift store.

I wore the dress to a wedding this weekend, and it was very well received.

Twirly skirt!

That's lovely.
28  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re-covered chair on: July 31, 2012 11:00:10 AM
My husband's computer chair has been looking rather ragged of late, so I decided to give it a new look.



I used some of my husband's old jeans to repair the chair; he's always ripping them in awkward places and I can't bear to just toss decent material. So I found a use for some of it. One leg is on the seat, and the other leg was used for the back. I hand-sewed it on using quilting thread, discovering when I'd mostly finished that I could have taken the seat apart and put the demin on that way. If it starts coming apart again, I'll do that, since I still have a stack of old jeans. But the back did need to be sewed on, since it doesn't look like it's meant to come apart at all.

It took a while, since I'm out-of-practice at hand-sewing, but between my thimble and a few episodes of the X-Files, I managed to get it finished with minimal damage to my fingers.
