1  New Funky Tank-ish Top With Swirly Hypno Pattern in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Mrs-Roboto on: June 29, 2005 08:48:09 PM
I was perusing my wardrobe and noticed a definite lack of tops.  I have a well worn tank my grandmother made for my mom back in 1979 to wear under her suit jackets.  Grandma called them "shells" as opposed to tanks.  Anyway, I loved the cut and decided to replicate it so I dummied up a pattern and Wah- Lah!

Here is a close up of the fabric as well:

 What do you all think?

2  New Spring Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Mrs-Roboto on: May 15, 2005 09:40:21 PM
I just finished this one today!

It's from Simplicity Pattern 7090.

The front has three panels and a slit.  Here's a couple of closer views.

I wish I could have captured the front panels a little better.  I'm really pleased with it though.  I hope to make a few more in this style if only I can find fabric as cool!

P.S. Slightly better pic of the front:

Great minds.....I too thought that was perfect bag making material.

Nice job!

4  Brown Skirt With Pink Flowers in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Mrs-Roboto on: April 30, 2005 06:21:34 PM
I have been working on this way too long (like about three weeks).  I decided today was the day to finish.

The skirt is a brown suedette material I found at JoAnns.  The flowers are made of pink polar fleece (which I learned will not pill the way felt does but has a similar look).  Here's a close up -

The button centers were an afterthought but it felt unfinished without them.  I had to do the flowers twice since my first attempt at stitching them on looked sloppy.  FYI Do not sew on four hours of sleep. 

So what do you think?  Was it worth the effort?

5  Summer Skirt for A Friend in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Mrs-Roboto on: April 18, 2005 09:18:01 PM
My friend Judy just celebrated a birthday and I wanted to make her a pretty skirt to wear this summer.  Whereas I like really loud colors and flashy patterns, Judy likes warmer earthtones and traditional styles.  I thought the fabric below fit both our criteria.

Side view:

That's Judy modeling. 

A funny aside, Judy called me up and said she had found the perfect shirt to go with the skirt and when she came over to model the skirt for me, it turned out that she had purchased the exact same blouse I had purchased a few days earlier.  I guess our styles aren't that different after all.

6  Bamboo Handle Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Mrs-Roboto on: April 03, 2005 08:38:45 PM
The last week has been all about getting this bag done.  It was one of those projects that took far longer then expected. 

The handles had been saved from an old bag that fell to pieces and when I saw the fabric I knew I had to put this together.

I used Butterick Pattern B4148 and then modified a bit at the top. 

So what do you think?

7  Polka Dot Skirt for Spring in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Mrs-Roboto on: March 27, 2005 08:38:42 AM
I finally completed everything I needed to do for my graduate school applications/interview and I can get back to sewing and crafting -YAY! I'm dying to put together my Spring wardrobe.  Here's the first of my skirts for the season.

Side view:

Front view:

The skirt even matches my kitchen.  I had two issues though.  I put in a side zipper and at the bottom, it created a small gather.  It's not noticeable unless you look closely but any advice on how to put side zippers in more efficiently is greatly appreciated.

The second issue was more challenging.  Apparently I cut the lining a bit smaller than the skirt so when I attempted to attach the lining, I had an inch more skirt.  I wound up going back in and taking the skirt in at the waist.  It worked out fine but I'll remember to measure twice and cut one in the future.

So what do you think?

8  Tin Ceiling in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Mrs-Roboto on: February 28, 2005 03:50:38 PM
My husband and I just finished installing a tin ceiling in our dining room (which we completed renovated from ugly wood paneling and yellow and brown linoleum).  I really dig it.
You don't see too many tin ceilings on the West Coast so this is sort of an homage to our Northeastern roots.
Here's a wider view.     
We need to get some art for the walls and a new table but at least it's liveable now.
I'm getting excited just thinking about the dinner parties.

Yes it is the Madison bag.  I used super heavy fusible Pellon x 2 on the bottom.  I am going to make another one for a friend this weekend and will add a tutorial then.  Here's one more...

10  Atomic Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Mrs-Roboto on: February 21, 2005 04:09:23 PM
I just completed this one.

The fabric is from Reprodepot.com and it had been my original intention to make curtains for my dining room with it but the blue clashed with the Robins Egg color on the walls.

Here is the interior

The flower on the front was a last minute addition.  It seemed to need something.  In retrospect, I think I should have done something with stars.

What do you think?
