This is utterly fabulous!  I would love to see some action shots of it being worn by a little cutie Wink.
32  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Strippy Lap Quilt on: June 26, 2007 11:01:52 AM
This quilt is a lap quilt for a friend's mother who has undergone some life-changing surgery and will be in a wheelchair for a good long while, if not permanently.  I figured she could use some bright cheeriness and snuggly quiltyness.

I love this so much I wish I thought of it!

OK, I redrafted the pattern pieces for the tunic and made a new and better fitting version. I made it less low cut (it really was more low cut than it appeared in the picture!), made the sleeves a bit narrower, added a couple of inches to its waist, and lowered the neck in the back. I LOVE how it came out.

This tunic is from Simplicity 3927, the "It's So Easy" line. I figured that easier was better for my first attempt at a shirt, although the zipper did make me nervous. While sewing the actual top was as easy as advertised, getting it to actually fit me was not so easy. I took my measurements and chose my size based on those, but ended up with way too much space in the bust area and not much breathing room. Apparently, this pattern was made for really skinny people with large boobs. Since I don't fall into this category of body types, I took out the side seams and added panels so that the waist actually fit. Then I added darts to the side to make the bust fit better and took up the shoulders a little. Even with all that, I'm not entirely happy with the results. It's too low cut for me to be comfortable wearing it and there is still too much room around the arms and shoulders. I think I may give it another go by redrafting the pattern pieces with some modifications of my own. Something tells me this is a lot harder in practice than it is in my head.

The whole thing is t-shirts except for the border.  The border and backing are the same material - a Kona cotton.

Thanks for all the nice comments!
37  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First T-shirt Quilt on: May 24, 2007 10:06:23 AM
This is a memorial quilt made from some old t-shirts as a commissioned piece of work.  It was my first attempt at a t-shirt quilt, so I was pretty nervous.

I had to use some medium-weight fusible interfacing on the back of each scrap, so the finished top was WAY bulkier and heavier than I was used to.  This made maneuvering the top to quilt it very difficult.  But, I managed.  See for yourself:

That dress is adorable and I would totally love a tutorial.  And the action shots are fabulous!

Don't "copy" it - how boring!  Take the idea and make it your own!! Wink
40  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cape for Dress Up - with Tutorial link on: March 25, 2007 06:09:51 PM

I made my son this cape as an Easter present.  I had him try it on a little early so I could get pictures.  Hopefully, he's already forgotten about it.

If anyone else wants to make one, I put a tutorial up on my blog.  You can access it here.
