21  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 7 ENTRIES / From my bottom to my baby's bottom..well sorta. on: November 08, 2005 01:03:36 PM
I had a pair of shorts that were a little to snug for me now. So I made them into a diaper bag. I hate to carry around those big ones when I'm just going up to the store real quick, plus they all look the same. I got the idea from those tote bags made from the butt of jeans. I added some elastic to the inside to hold the diapers and wipes. I use the back pocket to hold sippy cups. And the front pockets work great for keys. Hope you enjoy! Smiley


22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Jesus Fish Belt on: September 15, 2005 10:45:16 AM
I found this cool belt with a cross looking buckle on it. I had an idea on making a fish belt and thought this was the perfect one for it. I just used eyelets and punched the fish on it. I love how it came out Smiley It's the first part in my new clothing line..."Yadah" Hope everyone likes it, and have a great day!

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Shirts on: July 08, 2005 12:44:29 PM

this is a tube top I made from a tshirt. I added lace to the top and bottom

This one is my own design, just a simple sleeveless shirt.

I made this one from a pattern. I had to alter it a little but it still came out ok.

I mixed two different shirt patterns together to make this one. I just like the fabric, wal-mart 1$ yd. I used black bias tape on the neckline

This was a mix of using patterns pieces and making my own. I just wanted a nice tank top for the summer. again with the wal-mart fabric. Smiley

This one is hard to see. It didn't look right on my duct-tape dummy so I had to put it on. It's a skirt design from Rickrackruby(I hope I got the name right) I just added a spot to put in a ring. I just used a strip of the fabric and looped through the ring and tied it in the back. I bunches a little in the front, I might change it, not sure.

And finally this is a skirt I made. It looks a little funny because I have to put it up high on my dummy because the legs poke out the skirt weird. It's just a plain skirt, and I added extra fabric to the lining and made it longer than the first layer.

Let me know what you all think, I might try to get some photos of me actually wearing some of my clothes later on, but my son is sleeping in my room so I can't try on the clothes right now. But for now my duct tape dummy will have to do.

24  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Montgomery Ward computer sewing machine help! on: July 06, 2005 11:01:04 AM
I am trying to fix my mom's old sewing machine and I am stuck on one last thing (I hope) It does decorative stitches on the machine but they're not working right. when you're sewing the right half of the stitching comes out right, but the left doesn't. I tried doing a zig-zag stitch and the bobbin only catches on the right side. I'm not sure how to fix it. I hope I described the problem right. If anyone has any ideas or knows where to get info on a Montgomery Ward sewing machine I would be grateful! Also, when I sew knits it just bunches up the fabric and rips little hole in it. It does cotton fabrics just fine, not sure if the two problems might be related or not. Anywho...thanks!
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sizing patterns on: June 21, 2005 05:53:28 AM
I have been playing around with the idea of my own clothing line for years now, but I have one question I can't figure out yet. Does anyone know how you know what size to label your clothes. I know that even if I use a pattern to draft my own patterns are in different sizes than ready to wear clothes. I tried to find a web site that might help but haven't had any luck. I can probably guess on tops, just s, m, and lg. But how do I know about jeans? I could find a girl in every size to try on jeans and go from there Smiley But that would be a pain. Any help would be nice. Thanks!
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / hoodie fabric on: March 29, 2005 04:11:30 AM
I have a pattern for a nice hoodie that I have been wanting to make. I just don't know what fabric to use. I want to use what store bought ones are made of but don't know what it's called. Is it just a knit? or do I need a certain type of knit fabric. Please help!
Thank you

27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / those things on jeans?? on: March 24, 2005 01:09:02 PM
Does anyone know what those "button" looking things are called on jeans? The things that are on the corners of pockets and stuff. I'm trying to make a pair of jeans and I want them to look as close to store bought jeans as possiable. Also, does anyone know If I can just my eyelet punch to put them on or if I would need a different tool. Thanks!
28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / shorts for my son on: March 03, 2005 09:35:00 AM
Here is a pair of shorts I made for my son from some fabric I bought to make me a shirt Smiley I made my own pattern and added the white stripes down the side. It's just an elastic waist and has a little tie in the front. He's ready to go surfing now Smiley

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / blue shirt on: February 28, 2005 12:01:38 PM
this is a sleevless shirt I made today. I used a pattern I had and just altered it a bit. I made a different neck on it and rather than having a zipper in the back, I added two buttons on the sholder part.
