First the design is inspired by Piet Mondrian's style of art.
It actually reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright.

I second the clear grout for the same reasons.

At first I was looking through google image search but then it hit me that since I own these books I might as well take pictures of them with my cam. (Doooh sometimes..)
Some editing in photoshop, resize, border for clarity with a contrasting / complimenting color picked from the image itself.
53  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Why pay top dollar for themed underwear? on: August 26, 2007 06:02:32 AM
When you can create them yourself! My daughter is much like any 3 year old, fan of Dora the Explorer and tends to have a pavlov response to all things princess, but I feel underwear in that department is
a) expensive
b) crappy quality
c) everybody has them (Seriously, I take care of 3 girls and I actually put initials in their stuff)

So I figured, why not get pictures of her favorite books and print iron ons, and put them on quality underwear (which is cheaper cause you're not paying for trademark).

Make optimum use of your sheet

I got 13 6.5X6.5 cm circles on 1 A4.

Iron your butt off

Yes the top left one is #%$# up. I didn't think and just ironed over the cloth direct on the patch.
And yes that's her toy iron and she plays pretend iron-on, it keeps her away from my hot hot iron.


Yeah the color of the underwear shines through but I don't mind. (I was tempted to put the mole pic on the back of the knicker  Tongue )

Matching tops

I couldn't figure out where to get freezer paper as well, until I was at the cheese shop and the salesman wrapped my gouda in a plastic lined paper..WAIT A MINUTE!!! Only problem with this is that it's only glued along the length on either end of the paper, so the plastic is detached in the center. No problem for round edges, but it is for long small details, the plastic tends to curl back.

So what if your 26, had a child....but a c-section...lol. Is there a category for that....lol
You still need the mommy cup because a full term baby inside you widens up the pelvis and the with of the birth canal.

Too hot a setting also doesn't work. My first iron on went great, the second got burned brown and the red ink from the lines on the cover sheet also bled through. Sucks on a white shirt Sad
I hope laundry fixes that somewhat.

I love the fabric in the first two, it reminds me of those 70's children's books.
58  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Ruffley patchwork dress and shrug jacket with a sort of tute on: August 14, 2007 11:14:05 AM
Absolutely awesome and her shoes are the bomb.
59  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Been busy making baby stuff: dress, ring sling, taggy blankets on: August 14, 2007 09:55:53 AM
Love that sling! Is there a pattern??
I used this one because the rings are sewn in a gathered pleat:

My girl is a 35 lbs / 39 inch monster and I still use it, it's very sturdy and practical and I can just fold it in a backpack for outings. She even sleeps in it.
60  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / What dad can say no to his girl? Hot pink doll closet. on: August 06, 2007 04:20:18 AM
It's strange I wasn't able to find anything suitable in the store, but why go store bought when you can create something to your own specifications? Sure you need to keep the kid away from daddy cursing away at the MDF  Cheesy but afterwards you'll have the happiest little kid on the planet.

With any luck the bed will be painted with the remainder of the pink paint.

For  scale

I'm not too happy with the makeshift hangers (bended electronic wire), but I plan on making some from those hook screws and 3.5 inches of round wood.
