1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Fabric tortilla warmers on: February 18, 2008 08:33:05 AM
Hello everyone!

I saw a show the other day from Sewing with Nancy where she was making Fabric tortilla warmers.  I can't figure out how to make these and haven't found a good pattern on the internet.  I tried looking on her site but it's a bit confusing.  Did anyone see the show and/or does anyone know how to make these at all?  I want to make one for my dad when he comes down next week because we always have a war about heating these things (friendly of course) and I want to end that... Grin  Thanks!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Child Costume: The Little Mermaid on: November 01, 2007 03:40:08 PM
My first attempt at a costume.  This is totally one piece (4 pieces made into one) I made this for my 4 yo.  I enjoyed seeing the mouths drop at school when I told them I made it.  There was a total of 3 mermaids in her class of 15... I think she totally rocked!!

See the different Mermaids

My first attempt at a costume.  My DD choose to be a mermaid.  I was a little scared at first to make this, but the pattern was easy and it turned out good.  I started the first week of October and was finished in 2 days.  I cut out on one and sewed on the other.  The thing I had the most problems with was the zipper.  It was 20 inches but when I installed it I could only unzip about 7".  It worked well and it IS just a costume...Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cheytowns men's shirt to toddler dress complete! on: June 22, 2007 12:47:47 PM
I went to the thrift store yesterday after reading Cheytowns tutorial.  I found a really nice mens shirt for a dollar and brought it home to make the dress.  I started out with a seam ripper and then decided to get real and use scissors!   Grin  Anyway, after a couple of attempts at getting the sizes right, here's what I have.  I might be adding to the dress.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 2 Piece halter top short outfit on: June 04, 2007 04:45:33 PM
I made a cute outfit for my DD today.  I decided that I was tired of all of her outfits looking so huge on her that I would make it a size smaller since that was the measurements (sorta).  Anyway, I added an inch to the top and it was still TOO small!  Angry  I can't win with this sizing thing.  She has odd measurements as it is. I might make it again because I like the halter top.  Thanks for looking!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first complete outfit for me! on: May 13, 2007 06:28:28 PM
So I have been sewing for my DD for about 8 months now.  I like doing kids clothing because it's easier to fit and there isn't as much material to mess with. 

I bought this pattern for the skirt when I started sewing and was afraid to really start it.  I finally decided to make a mother's day outfit.  These aren't my colors normally but I have to think outside the box.  I made the blouse too! My first.  The pattern to the blouse was AWFUL!!  The instructions were very hard to understand.  Anyway, here it is in all it's glory....

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mum's day dress for DD (lots of pics) on: May 11, 2007 03:13:11 PM
I did a cute dress for my DD.  I found this material at the "good" store and HAD to have it.  It's very cute I think.  The original had only one ruffle and no sleeves.  I had to add another ruffle because Abby is tall.  I have been dying to do this anyway so I experimented.  I added the sleeves too.  So what do you think?

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Twirl Dress on: May 01, 2007 10:08:16 AM
I finally made a twirl type skirt.  Again this was suppose to take only a few hours and it wound up taking 2 days.  I don't like doing gathering. I have a dress made the same way for me to make and I can't imagine having to do 3-4 times the amount of fabric gathering...ugh

Please let me know what you all think.  Thanks for looking!

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pink Nightgown on: April 27, 2007 03:00:24 PM
Well I finally made a nightgown for Abby.  I can seem to find these in the store anywhere so I had an excuse to make one.  It's a bit big, but she will grow into it and I like big comfy nightgowns anyway...Smiley  Let me know what you think.  Thanks!!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 2 Piece outfit for DD on: April 21, 2007 02:44:16 PM
I made a new outfit for my DD.  I've been working on it off and on this week.  I have to laugh when I read that these are easy to make and they always take the longest.  Oh well..Smiley  Here it is!
