1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Book Reviews on: April 30, 2008 10:25:13 AM
This isn't a new topic suggestion, but I really liked it when Craftster had a "Books & Magazines" topic.  I think the threads were merged into the relevant topics, like sewing books under sewing, etc.  It was so much easier to peruse the threads and see what sewing books people were talking about.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Green Go-Go Dress (Built By Wendy 3835) on: November 09, 2007 09:10:49 AM
Hi everyone! I can't resist the opportunity to make a new dress.  Here's the result of my latest efforts:

I made it using this fabric I got on fabric.com a while ago.  It was pretty easy to make.  I was a little intimidated at first since it was my first time installing a zipper.  It worked out surprisingly well!

I love bopping around town wearing my new dress.  It was so easy to make that I'm making another one, this time with pockets and polka dots.  Yay!
3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / I Love Teal on: February 19, 2007 07:10:34 PM
Hey everyone!

This is my first post under the knitting topic.  I've been busy making 2x2 ribbed scarves for everyone, including everyone from my boyfriend to my sister.  Since it's been so cold here in NYC, I decided to make one for myself!

I've been obsessed with teal lately and I found this beautiful wool yarn at Purl last summer.  I love wearing bright colors, especially when it's dreary outside.  Smiley
4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Alien and Cupcake Onesies! (Image heavy) on: November 13, 2006 08:35:45 AM
Hey everyone! A friend of ours just had a baby, so we decided to make awesome baby onesies for her. My boyfriend did an iron-on of a painting he made for me for Valentine's Day (pic to follow) and I embroidered baby onesies:

I used the patterns included in the Sublime Stitching book. I love the little alien guy! Thanks for looking!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Green Plaid Tunic Top! (Built By Wendy - Simplicity 3964) on: October 30, 2006 05:46:55 AM
I'm currently obsessed with sewing right now, so this is how I spent my Sunday:

I used a mint green cotton fabric I found on fabric.com this summer. It was a little fiddly trying to make the inset, but I figured out to gather the material so it makes little ... gatherings. The pattern suggests making the inset and sleeves in a contrasting fabric, but I liked the fabric so much that I made the entire tunic in it. I like the spacegirl sleeves a lot! All in all, it was a breeze to make. I'm thinking of making the next one in some drapey silky fabric.

Thanks for looking!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Yellow Polka Dot Shirt! (Built By Wendy Pattern 4112) on: October 22, 2006 12:56:53 PM
Hey everyone! I made my first shirt!

I used the Built By Wendy Pattern 4112 (http://www.builtbywendy.com/onlineshop/cart.php?target=product&product_id=16672&category_id=296/) and some fabric I got off of fabric.com a while ago. It was the first time moving beyond making stuff in a trapezoid shape (skirts), but it worked out well, thanks to the easy to follow directions and such.

Here's the back, just in case you were curious:

Now I just want to make a whole bunch of them. It was really fun to make! Enjoy!

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Skin Sensitivity for Babies? on: October 09, 2006 04:57:59 PM
Hi everyone! My boyfriend and I are planning on making awesome onesies for our friend's newborn. We wanted to use a iron-on transfers  (Inkworks, specifically) for a couple of the onesies. However, we would be very sad if the gifts ended up giving the poor baby a rash. Any advice would be very much appreciated!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / DJ Girl Bag and Paisley Bag - First Handbags! (image heavy) on: August 26, 2006 02:46:39 PM
Hi everyone! These are my first attempts at making handbags:

This is made from an old t-shirt that didn't fit me quite well. I loved the graphic, so I made it into a purse instead. The bamboo handles were kind of a b*tch to attach, but it was worth it!

I found this awesome fabric at Mood Fabrics and was desperate to make something out of it. I LOVE the colors.  Cheesy
9  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / I just got my book! on: August 24, 2006 11:52:26 AM
OMG! I almost went into a dead faint at B&N right now when I saw the Sublime Stitching book on the shelf. I am SO excited to start reading it!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Hula Girl! on: July 12, 2006 04:38:28 PM
Hi everyone! I just finished my Hula Girl tea towel.

I had a hell of a time doing those french knots for her lei (you can tell!), but I figure that they're flowers, so whatever. I'll pretend that the big loops were purposeful. Smiley
