Thank you, thank you, thank you Jenny!!!! I LOVE it! You have been an awesome first swap partner for me and it totally makes me want to do this again... maybe in the LOTR swap coming up? Wink

Ok, so my partner is a pretty busy lade. Smiley So, i thought I'd post some pictures of the apron I sent her. She wanted one for the Fall so this is what I made. I used a pattern (which I realized later that I didn't really need, b/c they are SO simple to do) but the appliques are all mine Smiley.

Please ignore the bed. Wink

Here's a close up of one of the applique areas.

and is one of the pockets.

I hope she's able to post a picture of her wearing it! I really loved making it. Smiley
Also, i sent her some extras: colored pens and a kitty toy for her cat. Smiley

283  The Last Unicorn? And my wedding stitchery :) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Audania1 on: September 01, 2010 05:43:00 PM
Ok, so I have these two cross stitches that I got YEARS ago. And I mean YEARS. I started the Two Hearts one a year before I got married and put it down over and over, never getting past the roses in the garland. Finally, a couple of months ago, i just said, "I'm finishing this before our next anniversary or I'm gonna throw it away!" and I finished. Hooray! Here it is:

Now I need to gently wash it, press it, and put it in a frame. That will probably take another seven years...

Meanwhile, I started a different project (stupid, I know. I just prolonged both their finished dates.) It reminded me of the movie the Last Unicorn when all of the unicorns come running back out of the ocean when the Red Bull was defeated. I loved that movie! So, same story, i put it down forever and then finished it after the Two Hearts one. Smiley So, hooray! I also need to wash, press, and put it in a frame.

Thanks for looking everyone!

284  Cutsie crochet and sewn dress with a few pictures! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Audania1 on: September 01, 2010 02:50:05 PM
Ok, so I made this quite a while ago. Aside from an apron that I had made before this, this was technically my first article of clothing. Smiley I got the pattern for free on www.ravelry.com and I believe the pattern is called Jessie's Dress. It was very simple to make. Just do as many 3 inch granny squares in alternating colors to get all the way around and then multiply that by the number down the torso. Whip stitch them all together and do five to eight rows of single crochet to match the number of stitches along the bottom of the last row of granny squares. Single stitch all the way around and add a few double crochets for button holes. Add buttons. Find fabric for a skirt to match and cut to appropriate width and sew to length desired. Sew on two more squares to the skirt and voi`la! You could also make the two extra squares larger and turn them into pockets. Easy-peasey! I hope you like it!

The "pattern" suggested you could make a lining, however, I didn't do it. I tried to, but it was just way too difficult since at the time I had no idea what I was doing. I would really think about it if I did it again, though. Also, i added an extra column of squares under the buttons for growth along with a longer hem so she can use it longer. Thanks guys!

285  Perfect purple pillowcase dress! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Audania1 on: July 17, 2010 08:39:47 PM
I finally started and finished a project! It super helped that I had a deadline. I gave myself about a week but ended up finishing this in just 3 days. It probably would have taken less time but I have a 3 year old and an 8 month old. Priorities, I know. Smiley So here it is on my niece for her 3rd birthday!

I just bought a standard sized pillowcase set that came in a handy cloth bag made of the same material, cut off 4 inches from the top and J shaped arm holes. I sewed all of the raw edges, added a slip through ribbon (correct term? I have no idea.), and pockets with lace and lace around the bottom. I also made ties for the back out of the scrap fabric from what i cut from the top so it didn't balloon and kept it more fitted. She loved it and i was so happy I made it instead of buying one. Now I need to make one for my daughter since it was so cute, easy and b/c she was my dutiful dolly. Smiley Yay!
