1  Re: Spring Cleaning 2010: Fill a FLAT RATE Box; GALLERY send by 5/22 in The Swap Gallery by Beantown on: May 20, 2010 04:21:50 AM
Got my box yesterday from ceemonster..BOY, was it jam packed!  My son freaked over the Cars fabric and immediately asked me to make something out of it!  I am loving the fun yarns and the Altoid tins full of goodies.  And the glitter (which I did not photograph b/c I had to hide it from DD5!)

2  More PJ Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Beantown on: May 14, 2010 01:58:52 AM
I didn't use a pattern-just traced some existing PJ pants.  I like them with only seam on the legs so I cut each of the 2 pieces on a fold.  Easy peasy!

More on my blog!

3  Refreshed duvet cover and shams in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Beantown on: May 05, 2010 12:43:24 PM
I had a boring khaki duvet cover from L.L. Bean and decided to freshen it up a bit with some cute fabric I got at AC Moore.

Sewing a king-sized anything was just ridiculous at my little sewing table and there was lots of cursing involved and a little bleeding from the pins.  But it's done!

I made up this pattern as I went along.  It still needs buttons on the front but I had to strike while the iron was hot and take pics of DD while she was willing!

5  Fabric coasters from charm packs in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Beantown on: May 05, 2010 03:42:19 AM
I am lazy!  I bought these charm packs specifically for making coasters as a mothers' day gift.  They sewed up quickly-I used a thin flannel batting inside.  I'm not a quilter so they probably could be a little nicer but my mom will love them!

Awesome pattern for a first timer with collars!

Easy to follow and only a few pieces.

Edited to add:  Action shot!


I made these for my DD who is turning 5 on Sat.  She is not a girly girl at all so I chose a more edgy print for it.  The capris are just too-short pants from last year that I shortened and embellished with cuffs.  I also have to make a matching headband,

9  Tablecloth wardrobe (ok, just 2 items) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Beantown on: July 05, 2008 07:44:08 AM
Wrap pants (from this tutorial)

Wrap skirt

Both of these were ideas from Craftster.  I'm not crazy about how they look on me but I think they came out nice.  Any swappers interested?  I would love to take a couple of yards of fabric off someone's hands...both items are about a 10-12.

Love this tutorial-it is so easy!  I also really like the suggestion to really reinforce the curved seam.  I sewed a regular seam, serged it, then top-stitched it.  Here is the thing-I love these pants, love the colors and the pattern but they look bad on me.  I just don't look good in these pants.  I would to swap this with someone for anything-fabric, another finished project, anything.  Any takers?  They are probably a size 12-ish.

PS, this was a tablecloth I inherited from my hubbie's grandmother.  She had a ton and I don't know if they are from Italy, where she is from, but I adore these fabrics!
