11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Craft for my kid swap? on: March 05, 2008 11:47:37 AM
Hi everyone! I just came across this thread - we've had several successful rounds of Kid Stuff Swaps in the past and they're lots of fun! I'm not really a swapper anymore, so I'm glad to see that someone else is going to continue them.

Here are the galleries of the more recent rounds we did (people came up with some really great ideas!):

Round 3
Round 4
Round 5

Also, dragonslair ran a Goth Baby/Kid Stuff Swap in the fall that was really cool:

As you can see, the Kid swaps are always fun! (so when Superhooker posts the sign ups, you should all join!!) Wink

Sorry if I'm being dense...but what part of this did you craft yourself? The handcuffs?? They look very realistic!

(edit: nevermind - it appears that the second photo is missing...)

Great idea! Crafty + Cats (+ Canada) = awesome! Smiley
14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: beginner sewer needs help with altering pattern sizes....... on: February 28, 2008 12:52:51 PM
I always have trouble with this too! If you buy a multi-sized pattern, there are usually tips in the sewing instructions on how to alter the pattern to make it fit your body measurements. My own solution (which probably isn't very helpful to you) is usually just to fudge my way through the pattern and make alterations to the seam allowances, etc as I go...of course, I tend to stick to fairly simple patterns on the rare occasions when I make clothing for myself.

I did a quick Google search on "altering sewing patterns" and here are a couple of the more helpful pages that came up:




Hopefully some more experienced seamstresses can weigh in on this one!!

EDIT: I just noticed a similar thread a bit further down...you might find some hints there: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=220600.0

What a great idea! Glad to hear that it was well-received!

That is one cute apron.  When I first saw the picture, I thought it was a skirt.  The 3rd ruffle is my favorite...I love lime green and red prints.

It probably wouldn't be *that* hard to modify the pattern enough to make it into a skirt...just maybe take the width of the apron and multiply it by 2.5 or something? I'm not much of a clothing designer though...so this might be a completely deluded suggestion...(anyone else have any ideas?)

Thanks, everyone, for your comments!

The tomato fabric is from equilter.com - they had tons of other vegetable-themed prints too!  Smiley

I made this apron as a birthday gift for a friend who loves tomatos (her kitchen is tomato-themed). I used a tutorial from One More Moore - I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

That is adorable! Did you use a pattern or is it your own design?

Great work!

That is beautiful! Are the fairies stamped/printed or your own artwork?

Gorgeous work!
