11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cute Ruffled Shorts on: May 04, 2017 05:41:06 PM
I made these for my daughter and I love them. This fabric is so cute and those ruffles.

The pattern is from Simple Life pattern company and the fabric is Lilo and Stitch Hawaiian Nights from Spoolmonkey.
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My reorganized craft/cutting room on: May 02, 2017 09:13:47 PM
Well, my craft area has always been a disaster. Now it's kinda organized. I needed some place nice to cut my fabrics. So my hubby made me this amazing table. The entire top is end grain, like a cutting board. I can cut on it and it never scratches or cuts the table. And any marks it gets can be easily sanded away every year or so and it's brand new again. Of course my ironing board which is covered with fabric and my server.

It's huge so cuts down on my free space, but I'm okay with that. I have my hoops hanging on the side and you can see my dream machine, which is no tiny machine either.

I covered a wood board with insul-bright and then blue striped fabric and it is so great. I find regular ironing boards are too squishy, this is so firm, it irons beautifully and was so easy to make.

This last is a close up of the top to show the checkered pattern

My room is still a bit of a disaster, but it's my disaster and I hope to clear out a lot of the extra supplies I have that I no longer use.

13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Naughty Birthday Apron on: April 26, 2017 04:54:21 PM
My Sister asked me to make her a customized apron for a friend of hers for his birthday.
We had a fun time deliberating over mouth size, too little, or too big says something.
It makes me giggle. She is giving it to him next month, I hope he  likes it and doesn't think it's too much.

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Towel Topper Tutorial as promised on: April 25, 2017 01:12:39 PM
This is what the towels look finished

First trim the towels and gather the tops.

Then cut 2 toppers from cotton fabric of choice. Sew right sides together, clip, turn and press.
Sew the towel to one side of the topper, right sides together. Then turn under.

Finger press the other side under 1/4" and line up with stitched line on towel. Sew the 3 layers together 1/8" from edge.
Next is the cut out. I machine embroidered a rectangle, but you can Zig Zag around your desired opened like a large button hole. Mine are about 2 cm, but I feel it's a little too wide.

Go here for the templates and a few more pictures

Let me know if it's not clear enough. Thanks
15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / FoxPool on: April 20, 2017 02:39:34 PM

To go along with my daughter's Easter Sloth (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452148.0)
I made my son a Fox-pool using another Dolls And Daydreams pattern and Deadpool cotton from Spoolmonkey.
The swords and belts are just felt strips glued together.

I had a lot of fun adjusting the pattern to make him Foxpool and since I just got a brother dream machine, I was able to use the camera feature on my embroidery machine and line up the black eye circles perfectly.

16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Gotta Wear Them All on: April 14, 2017 05:24:31 PM
My Daughter absolutely LOVES Pokemon, especially Mudkip. So I made this special outfit for her for her Birthday this month.

This Outfit was a ton of fun to make and I sewed it all on my new Dream Machine. I usually use my serger for knits but this pattern needed a bit more control then you can get with a serger. I love the heart cut out on the back and plan to make another top like this soon. Now she wants me to make some matching leggings for her American Girl doll.

17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Easter Sloth on: April 14, 2017 04:47:12 PM
So I was thinking the Easter Bunnies getting a little too Narcissistic for my tastes and decided to make my daughter an Easter Sloth for this Easter.

He was fun and annoying to make. I got the Shaggy minky from SpoolMonkey and I love it. However it is a little difficult to use. First off you get fluff everywhere. I was able to stuff the arms, legs and some of the head with clipped off extras of the shag. I am thinking for the next doll, I am going to use some Glad press and seal to stick the fur down and out of the way. I also used a Dolls and Daydreams In the hoop pattern. I think I will only do the outline and face ITH and take it out to sew the body separately.
I hope you like him. Thanks for looking
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / It's bigger on the inside on: April 14, 2017 04:32:59 PM

This is my Captivating Clutch, March's Bag of the month. I really like this purse, however I was super dyslexic with the pattern and felt rushed, my machine was acting up, etc. So this is my adjusted finished purse.
I wrote a blog about all the touch ups I made to make this purse better, if you are interested.
19  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / You won't find these on the floor on: April 06, 2017 02:36:27 PM

I made these for my sister's birthday. She has everything, so I thought this was a nice simple gift you can always use. She loves tigers and her house is all jewel colours, so I used this fabric. the design is a bit big for the pattern but I really love how they turned out.
I plan to make a lot more of these.
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Rainbow Ribbon Hair clip organizer on: March 29, 2017 06:21:12 PM

I made this using a machine embroidery design meant I think for a baby mobile, I added some ribbon to the bottom to make a hair clip organizer. It turned out so cute, next time, I think I will use all shades  of blue ribbon to make it like rain. You can see my collection of random hair clips I have made. It's really great for bulkier items that are harder to store (like the light blue cat ears), or felt clips that might get dirty or broken it just tossed in a drawer.
