1  Super Summer Skirts! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lbdancer123 on: May 09, 2011 10:45:13 AM
I've been on a skirt making kick recently! I pretty much live in skirts during the summer, and having a serger makes sewing them so fast.  They're all from various patterns and tutorials, so I'll include the sources for you all.  

I intended for this one to fade from pink to white, but I didn't quite get the effect I wanted

Both of these skirts are the Saturday Market Skirt from Sewing Bits and Pieces, the free PDF pattern is available at http://portabellopixie.typepad.com/PDF/SaturdayMarketSkirtFreePattern.pdf

The Colorful Brick Road Skirt again from Sewing Bits and Pieces.  I sized it up to fit me because really, who of us isn't still a kid at heart?  P.S. doing a rolled hem on the ruffles was seriously headache-inducing.

This is the Deluxe Rectangle Skirt from Little Green Dresses

Look! Bright green pockets! These make me happy Cheesy

The Market Skirt from Made. Tutorial found at http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/tutorial-market-skirt.html

I added tie pockets using this pattern: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38097.0

Phew that was a lot! Thanks for looking & let me know what you think!

2  Belle from Beauty and the Beast in Costumes: Completed Projects by lbdancer123 on: May 07, 2011 06:53:40 AM
This is a costume I made for the dance studio where I work.  We have princess parties for the little ones and the adults running the party dress as the various Disney princesses.  The previous dress was a horrible store bought dress, so the recipient was VERY happy to get this one! The satin used was really difficult to get a good picture, so bear with me  Smiley

Detail shot: I hand sewed sequins to the front of the bodice and the shoulder...thingy.  Yes, that's a technical term... This one is also closest to the real color.

Thanks for looking, let me know what you think!

After some further research, I found a molecule that would work perfectly!

Sugar just seems like it would work out fantastically.

5  T-shirt kinda quilt from 3 years ago in Quilting: Completed Projects by lbdancer123 on: March 27, 2008 12:42:42 PM
While catching up with posting today, I realized that I never posted pictures of the quilt that I made right after graduating high school (I'm now a junior in college).  I made this before I knew anything about actual quilting, but I still love it.  I just cut patches out of old t-shirts and appliqued them to another piece of fabric.  It's about a twin sized quilt.

The whole thing

Top half: church youth group trips; dance team camp; festival in Beijing, China; and a hair modeling competition

Bottom half: more dance team stuff; middle school musicals (Oklahoma and The Wizard of Oz); Day of Silence; and RHPS

I hope you all like!

6  Tinkerbell Hoodie for my BFF in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lbdancer123 on: March 27, 2008 12:31:39 PM
My best friend is turning 21 in April, and I wanted to make her something fun.  Although she doesn't craft much, she appreciates my handmade gifts since the rest of her family is pretty lazy with gift giving (usually a check in a hallmark card).  Anyway, I just finished making her a hoodie with a nice big Tinkerbell patch on the back. 

Front (just a plain grey knit with blue rib knit)

Back (store bought patch attached with steam-a-seam)

I also made her some glasses for our favorite show, Ghost Hunters. 

I wrote the rules for the drinking game using a Sharpie Paint pen and added:

A cute little ghost at the bottom of each glass.

After April 5th, I should get some action shots from the birthday girl!

Sorry for the long post, but I hope you all like it!

7  Re: The Long Awaited Poppet-Along in Craftalongs by lbdancer123 on: February 27, 2008 02:19:53 PM
I've got a fever, and the prescription isn't cowbell... it's poppets!  I just finished my first poppet and she's very excited to meet everybody.  Everybody, meet Priscilla the Punky Pink Poppet.  She's a little bit punk, but still very girly (notice the two rhinestone earrings, sparkly black hair and eyelashes, and pink and black dress). 

Pardon the shoddy pics, but all I have right now is my macbook... just imagine me contorting my body in order to get an okay shot haha.
Anyway, thank you so much for the amazing pattern Ghilie, and I can't wait to start making more!

8  Itty bitty Taggie in Quilting: Completed Projects by lbdancer123 on: February 07, 2008 05:42:57 PM
I know it's a long way away, but my first niece or nephew will be due in August.  This baby is going to be totally spoiled by its aunt!  I realized after I came home with this fabric that another craftster had used it in a taggie, so I figure it was a good choice!

This shot is relatively close to the actual colors of the fleece.  I'd say it's good for either a boy or girl. It measures about 12" and I used 2 different widths of green grosgrain. 

Keep on craftin'

9  My First Quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by lbdancer123 on: February 07, 2008 05:34:25 PM
I finally finished my first quilt!  My boyfriend's mom is an amazing quilter, and for Christmas this year she bought me a learn to quilt book and made me a gorgeous quilt for inspiration.  It happens to be perfect timing for me to learn how to quilt since my first niece/nephew will be due in August and I'm determined to make a really nice quilt for them. 

It measures about 44 x 30, which would be perfect for covering up my legs while watching tv if it wasn't 80 degrees in my room!

Here's a closeup of the fabrics I used- the skulls have little hearts for eyes!  if you can't tell, I have a thing for girly skulls.

Thanks for looking!

10  Girly Pink Boxers in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lbdancer123 on: February 07, 2008 05:20:53 PM
Today was apparently a craft binge day for me... I'm trying to get better about using fabric from my stash, or immediately use fabric that I bought.  This was the latter, but I couldn't resist buying this adorable pink skull print!  The pattern is Simplicity 9958

Yes, I roll them down- that's how I roll (haha sorry, I couldn't resist!)

Here's a side view to show the length. They're pretty long since they're meant for guys, but I also have disproportionately short arms!
