42  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / little house on the prairie costumes on: January 19, 2007 03:09:59 PM
for my girls as Christmas gifts

My oldest daughter's costume is pretty authentic  - I personally love the bonnet.

It has something crazy like eleven buttons down the front. Fortunately, I didn't have too many problems with the button holes.

My youngest daughter doesn't like wearing her bonnet even thought it is adorable being the same fabric as her dress.

Her costume isn't so terribly authentic and rather reminds me of Heidi.

for those so inclined there are more photos of them here: http://thosenorthernskies.blogspot.com/2006/12/o-pioneers.html on my blog.

I love how sweetly old-fashioned these are.  The lamb is my favorite.

that was exactly what I was aiming for - so glad you noticed!!
44  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / teeny tiny folded purses on: October 26, 2006 12:59:10 PM
This is a little purse that I made myself last summer - it is just the right size for my credit card wallet...if I had a cell phone it would be great for a phone bag.

This little purse is a gift for my SIL. I am very pleased with it. I modified the above pattern slightly and the modifications worked out well...

A friend of mine saw the celtic knot purse wanted to buy some purses as gifts for the grand-daughters. This and that occured and I am making them as a gift for my friend to regift for the grands.

I am glad I am making them as a gift as I would feel guilty making money off them. I struggled in the making of them. For some reason the fabric had a mine of its own - I pulled out stitches in both of them - and I hate to rip seams - I avoid it at all costs. The orange one had more seam ripping than I've done in the past year. Then my sewing machine got balky and the clothe's line cord really was a bit too bulky. I feel bad that I struggled with them when the other two purses were so easy.

I love the fabric and the buttons I used on them though. I hope the grands like them.

very sweet little guy - I think moose are very cool...I am impressed that you are willing to sew it by hand - I don't think I would bother if I had to hand sew!!
48  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: a bevy of bears (my kinda memory bear) on: October 25, 2006 02:55:38 PM
Thanks everyone - I am glad you like them...I have to confess - I screwed up cutting the bears out of my grandpa's coat and didn't think to flip the patter for half the parts (with a used piece of fabric it seems best to cut out one pattern piece at a time) fortunately, the inside and outside of the fabric were very close to the same so unless you look carefully, it is hard to tell. I also had to include some coat seams on the back sides of the bears.

I chose to leave the bears from Grandpa's coat unclothed because they looked so cute naked - but I thought clothes were nice for the flannel ones - helps cover the print a bit...

Who made the pattern?

If you don't know, perhaps you could send it to me by private message? They are SO cute!

It is a McCalls Carefree Pattern the copyright on it is 1975 and the number is 4714

I think it is a wonderful way to add different textures to 'fine' art...
50  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / a bevy of bears (my kinda memory bear) on: October 22, 2006 03:16:24 PM
I found the pattern for these bears at my favorite thrift store and bought it without a second thought. My mom used to make these bears for us when I was a child. I don't think she has any of them anymore. So I thought I would make some for my girls. The two flannel bears are from receiving blankets my Mom made for the girls when they were newborns. My girls loved to be swaddled (both were swaddled past their first birthday!!) and Mom would make these huge flannel or seersucker blankets to use.

The dark grey bears are made from my Grandpa M's old pea coat. When he died, I asked Mom to get some of his clothes for me. I intended to pay an exorbitant amount of money to have it made into 'memory' bears for the girls. Twice I almost sent the coat off but chickened out due to the cost. So when I got this pattern I decided I would do it myself. Both of my nieces will get a bear and both of my girls will. I still have one of his suit jackets to make bears for nieces and nephews who are yet to be.

I have to admit. When I clipped into the shoulder seam of Grandpa's coat to start ripping it up I felt like I was doing something sacrilegious.
