1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / aprons aprons aprons! on: September 02, 2005 09:19:38 AM
Well, the new term at uni is soon starting (just over 2weeks till i go back - wahoo!) and seeing as this semester we're all moving into new houses/flats etc, everyone is making little housewarming gifts - one of my friends is painting each house a painting, etc, etc, so i thought - hmm...what can i do?

i saw laurasaurus's really really cute aprons and then i thought ....

BINGO - I can make some  little half-aprons - sort of 50s-style, as a bit of a joke - lol cause we're all getting all house-wife-y at the prospect of setting up our new houses, cooking for ourselves etc.

so these are the first two i made: (bear in mind they are a bit of a joke, and i know they look a bit tacky, bit brightly coloured - but hey, why not?)

(that one has a big pocket divided into 2, which u cant see in the photo for some reason...)

opinions on the brown ribbon would be appreciated: my dad likes it, my sister says it looks horrible with the strawberries..

Oh yeah, and when i was making these, i thought i'd make one for my nana too: so here's a pic of my Nana sporting her apron - she's 93!!!

Thanks for looking, guys Smiley
i have like 4 more aprons to make, so any suggestions of variations, improvements, or things you think would go wel lwith the strawberries/oranges, would be really welcome!!!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Power rangers t-shirt for a friend!! on: July 05, 2005 01:20:13 PM
Well, having made a skirt out of the power rangers duvet covers / curtains combo, i had loads of material left...and my friend Jonny had been hinting that he wanted me to make something for him...having heard of my newfound sewing obcession...
and he loves power rangers...

so i decided to make him a power rangers t
i cut out his favourite power ranger (yellow one...altho actually was originally gonna put all 5 on there as he couldnt choose between them...in the end it was just tooooo full with all of them on there..) so i also the power rangers logo. i bought a t-shirt from H&M and just sewed them on!!
sewing ended up a bit messy but i decided that it was supposed to look like that Wink

he likes it anyway!
