41  LSU wallets and Batman pencil pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by RedheadWithThread on: May 20, 2017 11:01:40 AM
I made this for my cousin's son, whose birthday was in April. It has been sitting around since then, waiting for me to sew it. I finally found the time to make it and sewed it up because we're going to visit next weekend.
It's just a simple bi-fold wallet since he's only 10 and doesn't exactly have a lot of stuff to carry in it Smiley A friend was kind enough to let me use his wallet to make a pattern for it. The fabric was from my stash and was scraps from where I made my hubs some pj pants.





EDIT:
Figured I'd add these to this post so that I wouldn't clutter up the feed Smiley

This LSU wallet is for me. It's a super simple one with just a Velcro closure because I don't carry a lot of stuff in my wallet. It's made from more of the same scraps. I used this awesome FREE pattern from Craftsy to make it.




This Batman pencil pouch is for the same kiddo who's getting the first wallet. Sadly, he can't use it for school as it's mandatory that their pencil cases be clear or mesh but he's can use it for his "homework pencils" at home. I made this by modifying this FREE pattern from Craftsy since the only zipper I had on hand was a 7" zipper and the pattern calls for a 14" zipper.

Mmm, that burger looks good, clm! :d That's what I made for dinner last night.

I hope to eventually crochet a bunch of play foods for my kidlet. I just have to keep him from trying to eat the yarn as I work. Cheesy

It's just a simple bi-fold but he's only 10 so he doesn't have a lot of stuff to carry around.

Project Name: Egon Spengler's jumpsuit from The Real Ghostbusters
Project Link: Here
Etsy user DGRequiem is holding a "franken-fashion" contest where the challenge is to create your own outfit using pieces from her patterns. I was going to do this anyway but the idea of having a chance to win free patterns made me get my butt in gear to get it done! Cheesy From start to finish it took about six hours to do this, if you include the drafting of the patterns from the patterns I had plus testing the patterns on muslin.

This project is only about 99% done but here it is:


It's Egon's jumpsuit from The Real Ghostbusters Grin Eventually, the doll wearing the costume will become Egon. And this outfit will be getting a redo to make it look nicer and to add the little details. The outfit got its own post here

DGRequiem, the Etsy user behind Requiem Art Designs, is hosting a "franken fashion" contest, the object of which is to take pieces from her different patterns to create your own outfit.
I had been meaning to Frankenstein this pattern but I was being lazy about it. The chance to win free patterns made me get my butt in gear to get it done!
Here's the 99% finished product (it needs Velcro for the closure):




It's not 100% exactly like the cartoon version but this is just a prototype until I get the right fabrics: I used jersey knit fused to muslin for the blue because that was the only fabric I had in the proper color and the collar and cuffs have a brown paisley print on the wrong side, which is visible close-up.
Here are the photos of it in progress:
Testing the Frankensteined pattern with muslin:




Added wrist cuffs and started the seams:


Finished adding leg cuffs, just needed the collar and to sew the top to the bottom:


With Velcro!


The back:


If she says it's okay, I'll post what I did here so that y'all can make your own, if anyone is interested. You'll just need the right patterns to do it with.

Lucky! Grin

I'm finished now, except for the Velcro to close the front; I need the light/thin sort used for baby booties and such. I'm going to try to pick up some at Walmart tomorrow, if I don't forget like last time Roll Eyes

Very, very slowly or my machine eats it. Though it seems some machines just like to chew up tiny projects because my mom can't do tiny stuff on her machine even if she goes really slowly.


I'm just waiting on the Fray Check that I put on the edges of the collar to dry then I'll finish it up (that's why I left the top wrong side out) Smiley I hope to one day remake this outfit with the proper fabrics and the extra details like the Ghostbusters logo on the shoulder. Hopefully I can pick up the fabric when the new JoAnn's opens up later this month! Grin

I think the hardest part for the Vault Dweller outfit will be finding that right shade of blue.
I've got the pattern figured out and I started on Egon's jumpsuit:

There's muslin on the inside because the only fabric I had in the proper shade of blue was a jersey knit so I fused it to the muslin with fusible webbing. It's working out pretty great so far Smiley The only pink I had were some scraps with a brown paisley print so I've sewn it with the print on the inside.
I've called it quits for today because I'm tired of sewing tiny seams Tongue

I've been doing a bit of frankensteining with the patterns I got from DGRequiem to make a jumpsuit pattern:




She's hosting a contest where the challenge is to "franken fashion" your own outfit using pieces of her patterns. I was going to do this anyway but the possibility of winning free patterns made me finally get my butt in gear and get to work on it! I wanted to make a jumpsuit pattern so that I can make a Vault Dweller custom and an Egon Spengler custom (The Real Ghostbusters version). Eventually, I'm going to make a female jumpsuit, too, because I also want to make a female Vault Dweller custom. I don't know when I'll get around to those customs, but I'll have the patterns ready for when I do! Grin

When I finish tweaking the pattern, I'm going to make a post with how I made the pattern: I have to tell it for the contest so I may as well share it here, too!

Roler, I LOVE that bunny creature and that mushroom pouch. That purple really goes great with that olive green.

Project Name: Spiderman Toddler Bib
Project Link: When I finish the other bibs
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul." - Dieter Uchtdorf
Crafting has always been a big part of my life: I grew up watching my mom, several aunts, and maternal grandmother crafting. As a result, I've always had a desire to make things by hand. About 60% of my little froggy's bibs are small bibs made for babies and newborns. Since he's transitioning to the toddler stage, he needs bigger bibs to keep him clean. So I made this toddler bib using this pattern that I found on Pinterest. The front is made with Spiderman flannel (the same flannel I used to make some burp cloths for when he was tiny) and the backing is black canvas. Since I didn't have any bias tape and didn't feel like fiddling around making some, I just sewed them together with the right sides facing then flipped it, pressed it with an iron, and made a narrow edge with a straight stitch.

I'll be making a few more bibs, another one or two with Spiderman (depending on how much of the fabric is left) and several with some nice plaid flannel I found at the bottom of my stash.
