That is so massively awesome! Not only did you score a really amazing hoodie, but the design is gorgeous and badass. I haven't tried cross-stitch since my childhood attempts, but I'm feeling very inspired now. I might just try your design. Thank you for sharing it!

That's highly adorable and awesome all at once. The flowers are so cute, but I think I'm most fond of the lettering on the back. Your mom is going to love it!

Brilliant. Lily does look quite smitten with it  Grin
I'd love to hear how you tackled the removable cover aspect. I JUST got done making one of these donut style beds for my cats but couldn't find an online tutorial that provided more than pattern piece info. Originally I wanted to do a removable cover and some other fancy stuff, but ended up scrapping those bits because I couldn't figure them out. *slaps head* Did you use a pattern or find your own method?

Thanks for the inspiration and tutorial! Making a purse has been on my to-do list forever and your tutorial popped up at exactly the right moment. I just finished sewing this fancy-shmancy top and had about a half yard of scraps leftover and nothing in my closet to match the blouse. Hence, I made a little clutch to match and use up the rest of my fabric and get my butt in gear for making more purses. Here's what I ended up with:

I made it a wee smaller; you can tell because I can only fit 2 pine cones in there!  Wink Also skipped a magnetic snap or closure of any kind because I didn't have any and will barely get to use this purse. Lessons learned: pleats are time consuming (at least for newbies) and require attention to detail, don't hem the top seams before you sew up the sides and bottoms (otherwise you'll get ugly bunched seams staring at you every time you reach into your purse), and 2 layers of stiff interfacing for the outer "handles" was a great idea, too.

Thanks again Underhill!

You two look adorable! Not corny at all. I especially love the button and loop closures. Fantastic job!

I agree with everyone else: that's pretty much an absolutely perfect dress. The fabric goes so well with the cut, too. And it does fit like a glove. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous dress!

That is lovely! Love the fabric and cut. I Googled the pattern, and you must have done magic because yours is WAY cuter than what is shown on the pattern. Great job!

That is insanely cute and the fabric is so rad. Yah for vintage fabric Smiley

Maybe since you're wrasslin' the bias tape, you could leave them raw cuz they look cute now. Or, since the tucks looks really nice, you could incorporate that into a little sleeve? Oh my, I think that technique on a sleeve is cute.

Good job and I hope you feel better!

*freaks out* A doxie on a hoodie! That is so super cute! The fabric choice is spot on, too: fun like a long old dachshund and a sharp contrast to the hoodie. The placement is cute & unique, but I wonder if it makes it difficult for others to see that it's a doxie? Has anyone asked, or is it just really obvious in person with your arms at your side?

And yah, I'm totally making one of these, too. My family is more than a little obsessed with dachshunds and I know a couple dachshund harness making relatives who would love one. Thanks for sharing!

I am a huge fan of refashioned button-ups and this one takes the cake! The neckline/collar detail, ruffle, and reused placket are my favorite bits. I have a feeling I will be making a few of these once the weather warms. Thanks for the inspiration!
