I would love to be able to drag and drop from my computer to a craftster window.

When uploading multiple photos, I'd love to be able to select them all at once rather than Choose File > Click image > Open x 5.  It would be AWESOME if we could just select five on one screen and voila! Smiley

Once you open the upload dialogue, you can open your picture folder, mark the pictures you want to upload and drag them into one of the fields. The picture names are inserted as comma separeted list and once you hit upload the program recognizes there is more than one picture and opens the next dialogue accordingly   Cheesy

I've been sewing lately, but did not post for a while

playsuit (Intemporels pour bb) and bucket hat (from oliver + s) for a newborn baby boy

Itty bitty newborn dress. I saw this dress on craftster and had to make a version for my little one, once I knew we were expecting a girl.

This dress really is tiny! It barely fit my 2-week early, 6 lbs 6 ounces and 18.5 in baby during the first week.

Wrap dress made of corduroy - very stiff. I'd use a different material next time. And bias tape is called *bias* tape and not straight tape for a reason... Angry

And finally a dress for my one-year-old goddaughter. I had so much fun making this. I am really looking forward to when my little one starts to walk and it is finally time to make her wear dresses.

I used a pattern from Sue&Blu, but made the dress out of an old men's shirt reusing the original hem and button panel - yeah to avoiding sewing button holes. I already plan on making a version in dusk pink - offwhit lace for my little one next year - or maybe dark red velvet and white satin for Christmas???
What do you think?

Very cute!
I hope my little girl turns out as crafty as you son.

any chance we can get the basic shape you cut out to make that shape?  & where you put the strap wholes?  I have 2 women in my office about to give birth and this would be a great idea for them.

I'll try my best, to put together a tutorial in the next few days.
26  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / hooded baby carseat snuggle blanket on: March 29, 2012 03:38:00 AM
Is a blanket clothing? - this certainly makes one layer of clothes unnecessary

We got a blanket like this for our seven weeks old. She loves hers. Now that a colleague just got a baby boy and a friend is expecting a baby girl, I found a wonderful occupation for those morning napping times of my girl.
I copied the pattern, used a large fleece blanket and two shirts - et voila - 2 new snugly blankets

I have to start with the ears, it's the part I like most.

both blankets

slit pockets in the back to pull the seatbelt through

my little one modeling


you'll need
-fleece for the blanket, flap, back of ears
-jersey for front of ears, brim of hood, bias tape

cut (no seam allowances included!)
- blanket on fold - 1x fleece
- flap on fold - 1x fleece
- ear - 2x fleece, 2x jersey
- brim - 35cm x 5cm jersey, looks nice if not cut on bias (see blue blanket)
- bias tape - 5cm wide (jersey does not necessarily need to be cut on bias, but it looks nice if you do use stripes)

basic measurements:

1. sew ears
put jersey and fleece right sides together, sew, trim seam allowances quite short (less than 1/4 in)
turn right side out, gather at bottom to achieve nice little teddy ears

2. put ears in ear seams
pin ears, close seam, serge edge
pay attention that you put both ears in the same direction (both to the outside)

3. close top of hood

4. put brim on hood
fold brim in half (optional serge edge)
center brim on hood
pin ends of brim to the outside (picture shows inside, but that does not look so nice after putting on bias tape)
serge in both directions, topstitch to keep in place

5. enclose top of flap with bias tape

6. baste flap to blanket (very close to the edge, so that you won't see the stitches after putting bias tape around it

7. enclose blanket from brim to brim with bias tape

8. put slit pocket into blanket
use leftover of bias tape/brim for the inside, serge outer edge
follow silk81's slit pocket tutorial
inside of slit for car seat

9. clip all loose threads and you're done Smiley

Thank you for the soccer ball pattern. I have made two and have started on a third. You should warn they are addictive. Cheesy

Thanks! I'm glad that the pattern worked for you - I'd love to see the ones that you have done.

I recently saw these in a quilt shop and knew I had to try my hands at them. A few friends of us were expecting babies - what an ideal situation to try something new.

As neither I nor the parents of the recipients are particular soccer fans, I changed the color scheme. Each pentagon is surrounded by five different colored hexagons, no two adjacent pieces having the same color.

Once you have all the shapes it requires some patience to hand-sew all the shapes together, but apart from that it's a nice thing to patch together in the evenings while watching TV.

I put together a tutorial including the paper piecing templates added below.
I'd love to get feedback on the tutorial and see any soccer balls you sew Smiley
