21  caps for baby (karate kid and bird) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by yonorris14 on: July 15, 2006 10:20:53 AM
I am so excited about hosting my friend's baby shower.  I've started on a few things already and today I made some caps.  They are both made from sleeves of a tshirt and I used a transfer pen to make heat transfer graphics.  Tshirts make for great baby hats because they are stretchy and can breathe and are super cheap!!!

This one is just a cute little bird

Here's my favorite.  It's the karate kid's head scarf, only this is a hat.

I have more ideas swirling around that I have yet to start.  Hope she never logs on craftster and finds out what she's getting!  Wink

22  Felt smelly thing for the 80s child in Completed Projects by yonorris14 on: July 12, 2006 08:56:25 AM
having too much fun with the felt.  i've been making key chains very similar to this when i thought it would be cool to have one hanging from my rear view mirror.  i made this one with an open top to insert smelly good stuff or maybe hide stuff in.  Wink

This is one side....

...and the other side

(I know, "boomin" is silly.  I wanted it to say "boom box" but I ran out of room)

The top opens too

23  Sun dress / Maternity dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by yonorris14 on: July 12, 2006 07:06:41 AM
I made a dress for my friend that looks absolutely adorable on her with her growing belly.  It can be worn during and after pregnancy.  I wish I had better pics but the top is made from a white tshirt and the bottom is some old vintage fabric I had lying around.  You can't tell from the pic but I put a bit of gathering in the middle front.

(I made that pillow in the foreground too.)

24  Kinderbags... okay so I made that word up in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by yonorris14 on: July 06, 2006 08:22:36 AM
My kids will start going to a sitter soon and I wanted them to have some fun bags to take with them to get them excited about going.

Made of upholstery fabric and felt applications.

25  Lil tote for baby shower gift... thanks Martha! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by yonorris14 on: July 06, 2006 08:18:49 AM
I found this cute tote from a Martha Stewart magazine all about babies.  I did a few changes to make it original and I'm really pleased how it turned out.  I only spent a couple bucks on it, if that.

It's made entirely of felt (my new love)

26  Felt baby booties..... this is just the beginning..... in Shoes: Completed Projects by yonorris14 on: July 06, 2006 08:13:29 AM
I'm so excited that I found this pattern although you probably don't need one because they are so easy.  But here are a pair of baby booties I made a friend of mine for her unborn baby.  I can't wait to give them to her!

Gonna make more in other colors.  This was a trial pair.

27  I love my shirt! Do you? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by yonorris14 on: June 19, 2006 08:52:52 PM
I've been really into deconstructing t-shirts lately because I've never been successful in making my own clothes.  But since I've started making these shirts, I can't stop.  I'm so excited about this one!

My friend gave me a bag of pre-pregnancy clothes and in the mix were some maternity clothes that were given to her that she didn't like.  This is one of those maternity shirts and I gave it new life.

I started by cutting a boat neck and making a smaller fitting band at the bottom to make it bubble a little at the hip.  Then I cut the back down low and added to strips to keep the shirt pulled together.  At first I was going to leave the back open but the shirt kept falling off my shoulders.  I added two cut out hearts to the breast and shoulder.

yes yes, my sewing rooms is very messy!

The bottom of the back in this picture is a little floppy but I ended up pegging it to make it a little more fitted while still keeping the bubble.

28  Marilyn Monroe dress for my little girl in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by yonorris14 on: June 17, 2006 06:00:16 AM
I made a halter top for a friend of mine and it inspired me to make one for my daughter.  I don't usually dress her in those type of clothes but I thought it would be cute for around the house.  It was so long it turned into a dress.  The type of fabric I used looked a lot like Marilyn's and it also had a cool fraying effect at the bottom that I just kept it.

29  FELT PIN CUSHIONS in Completed Projects by yonorris14 on: June 17, 2006 05:55:14 AM
I made a new pin cushion for myself because i like to have one just for needles and one for the rest of the prickly friends.  Then I was so tickled with mine, I made one for my mother's sewing shop.

Those are my daughter's toes in the top corner.  I made those too!

This one is mine.  It's made entire of felt and cluster stuff (which is the best stuff in the world)

This one I made for my mom.  The pink is a light cotton fabric and the dress is felt.  Also stuffed with cluster stuff.  I tufted this one so that it wouldn't roll off her sewing table.

30  cargo pockets- semi tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by yonorris14 on: June 15, 2006 08:29:43 AM
I've had questions on how to do these pockets.  I really don't think I would be able to do a step by step tutorial but this is the best I can do for you.  If you are anything like me, you might be able to figure it out from just looking.  That's how I learned to do it.  I usually don't use patterns and I do a lot of trial and error tests to come up with new things then I make my own pattern.

here are some close up pictures of the pockets i do.  this is one that i'm working on right now.  i like to use canvas or canvas-like fabric because it helps the pockets to keep their shape along with the rest of the bag because i really dont like to use interfacing much.  and please excuse the topstitching.  i really should have bought some thread specifically for that.

not sure why this one looks like the pocket is bigger than my hand...

right here you can see that i have raw edges even though i lined the pockets.  i usually cut them shorter after sewing them together and the top stitching helps to cut back on fraying....

hope that helps, tried to take pictures that would show detail

If anyone tries their hand at making these, please send me photos or post them!  Would love to see if I was of any help!
