Prompt: September - Superheroes
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: Toddler harness
Project Link: Here
Superheroes because it took a lot of energy to wrangle my busy toddler long enough to get him measured for this thing. Tongue I finally won by giving him some Keebler Club crackers. And it took a bit of thinking for me to figure out how to make it and have it adjustable because I've never made anything like this before. Tomorrow (later today, really) I hope to update the post with a photo of my little monster wearing the harness.



Prompt: September - Anime
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Eeveelutions dicebag
This is actually the SIXTH bag I made from this fabric print but I never got pics of the others before I sold them (newb mistake, I know) Tongue Pokemon is still one of my favorite anime and videogames <3

This is actually the SIXTH bag I made with this print: I totally forgot to get pics of the other five bags and the shop where I left them sold out before I could get back for a pic! Tongue

23  Toddler harness in Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: September 06, 2017 12:07:53 AM
My little froggy has gotten to the point that he tries to escape the stroller when we go to the mall (only at the mall, never the grocery store). I briefly considered buying a toddler harness, but we don't go to the mall very often so I couldn't justify buying one, even if I bought one of those simple $10 ones.
So I made one.



I already had the buckle and D-ring on hand so I just had to buy the strap adjusters and a swivel hook to make the leash (I haven't done that yet). The fabric is from one of my husband's old BDUs*, which I chose for its durability. If you count what I had spent previously on the items in stash plus what I had to go buy, I spent about $6 because everything was either bought on clearance or with coupons.

I'll update later with a pic or two of it on the toddler (if I can wrangle him). At the very least, I'll add a pic of the leash when it's finished.

The leash:


On the toddler:


*The Army/Nat'l Guard was issued new BDUs so my husband was told to "get rid of" his old ones. Instead of letting him toss them out, I've claimed them so that I can use the buttons and zippers off them, as well as the sturdy fabric.

My little froggy has gotten to the point that he tries to escape the stroller when we go to the mall. I briefly considered buying a toddler harness, but we don't go to the mall very often and he has no issues sitting in the seat of the cart while at the grocery store so I couldn't justify it, even if I bought one of those $10 ones.

Project Name: Skulls and roses oven mitts
My husband sometimes helps me in the kitchen (he can't cook very well) but the spiderweb mitts I made barely fit him. So I reprinted the pattern just 5% larger and sewed these to match my skulls and roses apron. He was happy to receive them because he likes helping out and he really likes the skulls and roses print.

Did you use regular quilt batting, or some special heat-resistant stuff?

I used some regular cotton batting plus Insul-Brite inside them (the Insul-Brite said to use the batting, too). They're very thick and definitely heat resistant! My hubs was disappointed that they barely fit him, so I enlarged the pattern to make the next pair.

lindy, I love your essential oils' colorful bottles and adore that cute little Stitch card!

CLM, I love that little pea pod. So cute and simple yet fun! And that mushroom village is really neat! Kinda reminds me of the Smurfs' village Smiley


Here's the second pair of oven mitts, made to match my skulls and roses apron:

I de-stash a bit and my husband turns around and feeds my addiction Roll Eyes

I made these from stash:


I've had that fabric for three/four years, maybe longer. It's not a perfect match, but they look great with the apron CLM sent me <3

I made these to match the apron that CLM sent me when she sent a box of goodies for my little froggy Cheesy


This was a custom order from a friend:

He had a drawstring bag for his play mat but it was made of a super cheap material and was starting to fall apart. So he gave me the bag and asked if I could sew him a new one in the same Pokemon fabric as the bags I had given to our local gaming store.

Prompt:  August - 2. Folly Fields
Team: Clan of the Creators
Project Name: Chicken club quesadillas
I made these once before, about two months ago. They didn't turn out right then and still didn't turn out properly. This time was totally my fault though. Tongue They're similar to the chicken bacon ranch ones I made months ago but there's supposed to be pico de gallo on it, no bacon, and no ranch. I had tomato, but forgot cilantro and peppers to make the pico. I had the black beans that go on it though. And I used salsa in place of the pico. They taste okay but hopefully, next time I remember all the ingredients. Also, hopefully next time I won't split my tortilla!

Prompt:  August - 3. Cutout Clearing
Team: Clan of the Creators
Project Name: Spiderweb oven mitts
Project Link: Coming Soon (after I make another pair)
I had to do a LOT of cutting out for this one: the spiderweb cotton for the outside, the Insul-Brite, the cotton batting, and the cotton canvas for the inner lining/cuff. I made these to match the awesome apron that craftylittlemonkey sent me when she sent a box of goodies for my little guy. They fit me well enough but were a bit snug for my husband. So the next pair I make will have to be a little larger.
