Wow! You all seem to live in such wonderful, beautiful locations. As there is no wonderful scenery to photograph, I've been taking some photos of my cat with my new Panasonic Lumix FZ18 that I got as a combined Christmas and Birthday pressie. Here's my favourite.

He's called Marble, and he's a little mischief!

I also thought this was funny: A coot started biting a seagull to get some bread off it. It seems ironic as normally the seagulls are stealing food off the other birds. It's not a fantastic photo and is too grainy to be cropped.

2  Unusual Summer Coat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Randommarble on: June 06, 2007 12:06:52 PM
I made this out of the spare material from my prom dress. It's a little strange but my friends seem to like it. It turned out a little big as I used the pattern I made for my boyfriends coat https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=174112.msg1792292#msg1792292 so it came out a little big, hence the lacing on the back is pulled rather tight.
I have replaced the pins in the front with one black frog closure.


Sleeve Detail

It has little thumb holes in the sleeve/armwarmer things.  Wink

3  Kiddy Material Corset :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Randommarble on: June 06, 2007 11:41:39 AM
I made this corset out of a piece of kids fabric I bought ages ago for my Child's Clothing Textiles Coursework, but I changed my mind. It only used 25cm!!

The front is held together with 4 large and 3 medium safety pins. I'm not keen on hooks and eyes and they take ages to sew on

The eyelets took me the longest. I think if I make another one, I might make it a little larger so the gap is smaller.

I wore this at the weekend with a black Victorian 3/4 sleeve top and got lots of compliments. I just happened to have a black top on when I finished lacing it in the middle of the park and I thought I'd try it on

art_babe: It's chef check material, with 1 1/4" squares.

rock_goddess: It was quite simple to make. Hope this makes sense.

The pattern pieces:

All measurements are in number of squares (1.25" each)
I used half square seams to get the various bits to line up correctly. There is an 8" zip for the front and 22" zip over the top. I used 1.5m 1" wide twill tape to create the two straps.

1. Stitch embroidery (I <3 my embroidery machine)
2. Overlock/neaten top of lower front and bottom of upper front
3. Stitch 2 squares on each side and insert 8" zip in gap
4. Overlock/stitch wrong side of front piece to right side of inner front
5. On top pieces neaten joining edges, stitch 7.5 squares on each side and insert 22" in gap
6. Stitch Twill tape on 3rd square from either side at both top and bottom (on right side of fabric)
7. Neaten all remaining edges
8. Pin and stitch top to front and back pieces, leaving 0.5 square at bottom without stitching (this makes it easier to stitch base)
9. Turn right side out and undo top zip (this makes it easier to turn once base is on Smiley  )
10. Turn back wrong way
11. Pin base on and stitch each side on its own, so fabric does not get caught up on corners. It is possible to stitch base in one go but it doesn't look as good once turned the right way.
12. You may want to double stitch over where the straps are, but its best to ensure the placement is right before doing this.

5  Trench Coat for Boyfriend in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Randommarble on: June 03, 2007 02:43:59 AM
I made this for my boyfriend using a pattern I drafted from a female friends coat which then needed quite a lot of alterations particularly with length. He wears it all the time, even when his mum tells him to take it off. Excuse his dazed look, he doesn't like photos  Smiley

6  Chequered Rucksack in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Randommarble on: June 03, 2007 01:15:27 AM
I just finished a custom order for my friend Rose:




What do you think? (I charged her 10 + materials excluding thread)]

EDIT: There is a front pocket and a main pocket with the zip running over the top. The zips are both pink to match the embroidery

I made this a few months back and its the first thing I've sold to someone I don't know (through my website that was intended for friends only but she was really keen). I would like some further feedback from you guys  Grin :
