191  My first apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cinnamon teal on: December 13, 2006 11:56:30 PM
I just finished this apron.  It's a Christmas present for either my sister or my sister-in-law.  I have enough fabric, so I think I'm going to make another one, so I can give one to each girl.

Anyways, I based it off this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129867.0 but made it with a halter top, changed the sides and left off the pockets.  This is the first time I've made something without a pattern.

The top is a bit big on me, but both girls are a bit bustier than I am, so I think it's ok.

*edited to fix a typo*

192  Eeek! Save me! a.k.a. I made a boo boo and now I need your opinion. in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by cinnamon teal on: December 12, 2006 08:47:08 PM
So here's the deal.  I'm making my little bro (11) some jammy pants.  I bought a men's pattern, cuz I'm making some for other people too and decided that I could just alter it to fit a kid.  But I ended up making the legs too narrow Angry.  So here's my question, should I go with
Plan A: add side panels in the same fabric
Plan B: add side panels in a different fabric or
Plan C: I was hoping you could help me out with Plan C.

I basted on one panel of each fabric to help us out:

The pants:

Plan A with close up and a pic of me squeezed into them for comic effect to give you an idea of what they look like on a person. (And yes, I am wearing my husbands socks.)

Plan B:

Here's the elbow pillow I made for my dad.  He uses hand controls to drive and somehow he ends up putting a lot of pressure on his elbow, against the armrest on the door.  It's just a little pillow that has 2 sections inside.  One is filled with rice or weight and stability and the other side has regular stuffing in it, so that it's soft and comfortable.  I made one of these for him years ago and he loved it, but it got really dirty and couldn't be washed because it had dried beans inside.  So this year I made a cover for the new one.  The pillow itself is made from denim from some old jeans and the cover is left over flannel from my FIL's jammies.  The stuffing and rice I had, so it cost me $0 to make!  Woo-hoo! Smiley

Anyways, here's the pics:

I made the back of the pillow case like a pillow sham.

Here's the jammies I made for my sister and my FIL (modeled by me and my husband Smiley).  I use Butterick pattern #4358 for both of them.  For my sister I took off the fly opening, straightened the legs and patterned the waist line after low rise jeans.  I also tacked the elastic so that the front part lies flat.  I made my FIL's pretty much by the pattern, but I also added a snap to the fly.

195  Daily drawings update in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by cinnamon teal on: December 10, 2006 01:08:59 PM
Here's a couple sketches from this past week of daily drawings.  You can see the whole series on my blog.  I was trying a bit of foreshortening on the hand.  It's something I have always struggled with.  I would love to hear any constructive criticism you have for me.

196  new cards made from old ones in Winter Holidays by cinnamon teal on: December 06, 2006 04:58:56 PM
So I'm a bit of a masochist and I spent a million hours over the summer cutting snowflakes out of old Christmas cards.  I love the snowflakes and I'm excited about how the new cards are turning out, but I just wonder, do you think they're too plain?  Any ideas of how I can embellish them and make them a bit more snazzy?  I don't really have the budget to purchase anything else for them, but I have a bunch of supplies already - lots of paint, some christmas stamps, colored pens, and most of the usual art and craft supplies (ribbons, beads, etc).

197  Re: Let's talk Version 2 ! in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by cinnamon teal on: November 16, 2006 07:59:28 PM
I am so frustrated!  I haven't been able to log in since the new version got put up.  In a way I'm glad to know that I'm not alone.  Anyways, I've been working on some design and here's my brand spankin' new banner.  What do you think?  It's also up on my blog.

Do you know what the dimensions are that the banner needs to fit?  Is this one too tall?

200  Halloween Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by cinnamon teal on: October 31, 2006 04:47:26 PM
I made these for a swap.  I started with a stick figure shape made out of wire with a plastic bead for a head.  Then I cut out and sewed the little dress, apron and yoke.  The "rope" is just a bit of hemp thread and I covered the heads with a bit of muslin (cuz I think they put a bag over someone's head when they get hung).

Anyways, let me know what ya think!  I'm new to jewelry making and any advice or helpful critiques you think of would be great.
