1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Detachable Peter Pan Collar! - tutorial link added!!! on: August 10, 2010 08:48:52 PM
Oh gosh. I've wanted to make one of these for so long but I kept forgetting to buy some ribbon whenever I was out! Well, I've finally done it! I'm so so thrilled with the result

The only thing I don't love is where I positioned the ribbon but it's easily fixed for next time.

So, I was thinking of making up a tutorial for the collar. It would start  with showing how to draft the pattern and then how to sew it altogether. What do you think? Would you be interested?

Here is the link to the tutorial. Do I need to put it on Craftster or is the link ok? http://pinklizzysews.blogspot.com/2010/08/detachable-collar-tutorial.html
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ruffled Tee Shirt on: July 26, 2010 09:07:07 PM
Hiya! I'm not very good at clothing recons but I did this one yesterday afternoon.

I cut up a too short tee shirt and turned it into ruffles and stuck the ruffles on a cute slub tee that I bought a few weeks.

I'm going to make more ruffled tops in the next few weeks. I am obsessed with them!
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Aunt Lindy's Paper Dolls on: July 24, 2010 11:47:27 PM
Please be kind.

The projects in this section of craftster are so amazing and inspiring and I know mine is very very simple.

I bought a panel from an etsy shop called Voodoo Rabbit (I did blog the link if you need it) and started sewing the second it arrived.

I'm completely in love. Hehe. Actually, my daughter is too.

For me, this project was a bit deal because I managed to stuff the doll solid (the best stuffing job that I've ever done) and when I hand sewed the dolls closed they were neat and almost invisible! I'm really pleased. And kinda relieved that I didn't waste such a gorgeous piece of fabric.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Ruffled Baby Bloomers on: July 12, 2010 05:23:20 PM
I made some ruffled baby bloomers using this really gorgeous pattern from Bettsy Kingston http://www.kelanifabric.com.au/index.php?PCID=11948&PSO=236&PSID=BKRP&PSV=Primary&CDO=

What do you think?

I think they turned out really well. I had a bit of trouble with the leg casing. You just overlock or zigzag stitch the raw edges and then turn them over creating the casing. My casing was a mess. I couldn't get it to sit nicely. On the plus side, when they were finished they looked fine. The gather hid all the messiness.

I bought a singlet and put a little brooch on it to go with the bloomers

I love making accessories. I can't help it!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crochet trimmed pillows on: July 04, 2010 02:50:38 PM

I made these pillows last weekend and it was the BEST fun!

I'm still very new to crochet so I was very nervous about it all. Which is silly because I think it turned out pretty well.

I used this amazing tutorial on You Go Girl. http://yougogirl.typepad.com/you_go_girl/2010/03/crochet-like-crazy.html

Seriously though, I love the effect of the crochet on the pillows that it's going to take all my strength to avoid doing it to all our pillows.

Also, does anyone know where I can find some more trim patterns? I'm looking at buying Crochet Adorned but I can't find a copy in town to look through before I buy it online (it's cheaper that way). Does anyone have a copy? Does it have trim patterns?

Of course, the pillows are blogged as well if you're interested.  Wink
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My No Pattern Pleated Skirt on: May 19, 2010 09:58:12 PM
I got all hyper about it yesterday and I made myself a fully lined pleated skirt out of gorgeous Joel Dewberry Quilting Cotton.
I didn't use a pattern and instead of a zip I put a small elastic panel in the back waistband.
I'm super relieved that it turned out because the cotton is super expensive in Australia and I would have been so upset if I'd wasted it.
