11  Cupcake Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Kamehi on: July 21, 2011 11:00:57 AM
I made this for my partner in the cupcake swap.  The cupcakes are embroidered, but the apron is totally made from scratch.  I used a basic pattern found in the book Vintage Notions. And then lined all most all of the edges with bias tape.  It was my first time working with it and it wasn't too bad at all! Not nearly has hard as I was imagining it to be!

( I have to rave about how beautiful and enjoyable that Vintage Notions book is.  The book is divided into 12 sections, one for each month of the year, and each month as a sewing pattern listed in it. Their are no cut outs or pattern pieces but just simple diagrams showing how to make some basic cuts on different types of fabric, and then casual directions explaining where to put the seams.)

Anywho, this apron pattern came out of February or March's section.  It didn't include the flounce ruffle.  I added that on my own. It's made out of two cotton men's dress shirts so it's easy to wash and iron, if desired.  The color combo and details were inspired by a wist item of my swap partner's.  So basically it's a twist off of her wist item.  Smiley

12  Cupcakes! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Kamehi on: July 21, 2011 10:47:23 AM
These are two items that I made for the recent cupcake swap.   An apron and a felt cell phone cozy, with velcro closure.I am pretty new to embroidery still but had a lot of fun working on these.  Both turned out so nicely, and now I think I'm going to need to make a cell phone cozy for myself!

Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the inside of the cell phone holder, it's lined with teal felt, so you get a nice bright pop of color when you open it up!

Thanks for takin' a look.  I really enjoyed making this, and it was my first swap so I had the "swap butterflies" going as well :0)

13  Great pattern for beginners in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Kamehi on: May 13, 2011 01:10:01 PM
So I'm really new to sewing and I swear that I saw this pattern already posted somewhere in here but I can't find it for the life of me! I just wanted to show off what I made and feel proud :0)

This is McCalls Easy 6264 and it's made from a rayon jersey knit.  The fabric was a little tricky to sew because it stretched so easily, but it turned out great and made for a very comfy, nicely draping dress.  I followed all the directions exactly except for the portion on the bottom hem.  I couldn't quite figure out what they wanted me to do so I winged it!  I folded in an inch of fabric, basted a quarter inch from the fold and also basted a quarter inch from the top raw edge, then I top stitched on top of the top basting.

Full length, sorry for the messy bathroom
