21  Easy Peasy PJ Bottoms in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bonbonz101 on: December 22, 2006 06:57:32 AM
I made this simple PJ bottoms for a few friends for Christmas using a Simplicity pattern.

The polka dot ones are my favorite.
It's amazing how grateful people who don't sew are for even the easiest gifts!  Cheesy
Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm not sure the one I received was ever posted (and considering there's 60+ pages of posts and I'm feeling a bit lazy to look  Tongue) here's the one I received quite a while ago..

It was created by my fabulous partner, millik, and covered in fabric with a sweet little birdy hand-stiched near the top. Sewing is my favorite craft Smiley

23  Five New Purses! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by bonbonz101 on: November 28, 2006 02:11:48 PM
Hey everyone Smiley

Here are a few purses I've made for a mini-craft fair this week.

This one was made with pink fabric and denim lining...my said says it's too summerish though, and probably won't sell now.

I made this one with an old sweater! Original plans had been to felt it, but it wasn't made of 100% wool and I wasn't sure it'd work. There is a button closure, and light blue lining.

I got this ice cream fabric from JoAnns (and also got some from a swap as well!) and absolutely adore it! I'm hoping no one buys it because.. I sort of want to keep it.  Roll Eyes

These are both just simple totes. I plan on making a few more of these since they're so simple!

I hope you like them!

Sent out today, AND received my package from ooak_diva!

Here are all of the wonderful goodies she sent! They include: a stenciled snowflake tote, lovely crocheted belt, pendant in fall colors, and a holiday memory wire bracelet with little charms!

And here's a closeup of the jewelry (her obvious specialty  Wink)

Now, where is everyone else's swap packages?! I want to see them Smiley

26  Retro Wrap Dress! (My first dress!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bonbonz101 on: August 22, 2006 04:37:29 PM
Hey craftsters!

Back in July, I got a bunch of awesome vintage patterns from a swapper. One that caught my eye was a 1971 wrap dress because it looked so darn cute and easy. Here is a pictures of the pattern:

Anyways, I had gotten the fabric at Walmart quite some time ago for $1 a yard, and found it to be somewhat retro .. perfect for such a pattern! It was a pretty easy sew, especially for my first time, that just included 2 darts, and a bunch of machine stiching. The only thing is that it sort of came out a little too big on the top, and I don't know anything about taking a garment in. Here it is, though!

I would love some feedback!  Smiley

Weeeee, here are pictures of the quite awesome stuff that kmac sent me!

All of the purses together! From left to right: Gourd purse, large zebra print tote, felted purse, string purse... the only problem is, I have no idea which one to use first! I practically have one for every day of the week  Cheesy

A close up of the detailing on the gourd (this is the back of the purse.. I didn't get a good picture of the front)

kmac even sent me a dollar to start the purse off!

ALL of the loot   Shocked (except for the coasters which I've already used  Roll Eyes) including: tealight candles, candle holder, crane earrings, silly magnets, a finger puppet, a pineapple bracelet, an owl (gourd?) necklace, pencils, a "latte" necklace, lavander body wash, foot roller, hand salve, tin, perfume holder, bubbles, lotion, compact, and a 'transform' pendant.. Whew!

A close up of the beautifully done, crane earrings

kmac, you were such a wonderful swapper and you really did spoil me more than ever! Thank you so much for it all! (All of my friends are jealous of the awesome purses and loot  Cheesy)

I received a WONDERFUL "thank-you" package from Eremira for being her swap angel!!!

(sorry for the sideways picture!) She sent me a lovely card, beaded bookmark, friendship bracelet, crocheted belt, pasta necklace, and crocheted ladybug pin! I love it all so much, Eremira, and thank you for putting together something for me!!!

By the way, the belt fits perfectly! It's crazy!!!  Cheesy

That's great stuff you sent out yellowblanket!!! It looks like you worked your butt off  Cheesy

I just received my package from devilninny today, and boy, was I spoiled!!! She sent me tons of stationary (the postage labels aren't pictured due to my address being on them), ice cream fabric, a decorated trinket tin, ice cream stuffie, yummy smelling caramel ice cream bathwash, earrings, stickers, keyring, barrettes, and a make-your-own gummy ice cream kit! Here are the pictures:

Everything together

30  My first ... pinafore? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bonbonz101 on: July 21, 2006 07:58:30 PM
Haha, I guess that's what it's called, huh?! stopthefacades created a GREAT tutorial for her LBP (little black pinafore) and I decided to follow it, and post my results!

It's made out of a jersey knit, patriotic-ish fabric (not my first choice, but was the only kind I had), and parts of a UCONN Basketball tee.

Comments & constructive criticism are greatly appreciated, considering this is one of the first clothing pieces I've sewn! Thanks for looking  Wink
