11  Bandana Thingy and Tute ;D hehehehehhehehehe image obese in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by diannab on: January 22, 2007 03:53:24 PM
Okay so my husband wears the 'bandanna things' under his hard hat at work. We have a name for them but some people see it as offensive, so meh. Here it is:

Modeled by my lovely mannequin head because he doesn't want his pic taken Tongue LMAO Cheesy hehehehehehhehee

I made it outta scrap fabric that has 50's cars on it. He is into cars. Grin He wore it to work for the first time today and already has 5 guys wanting some!!!! eeeeeeeep! ehehhehe oh and I need to modify the pattern but will explain this as I go along! Cheesy

Soooooooooooooooooo to make one you need to cut a pattern similar to this:

but on the shaped part shorten it by about 1 inch or so (making it a less sharper curve. It needs to be a lil softer to avoid the duckbill Grin ), or on some people you get a duckbill affect. And that isn't what you want with these. Cheesy My pattern works great for hubby but not for anyone else. I made a new more versatile one but don't have pics up. I can try to give more details on the pattern if this is needed. Grin Just let me know! Cheesy

So choose a fabric, believe it or not you can use tshirt knit, or the stiff cotton (like the stuff at walmart or what quilters would use mostly ) This is great for stash busting! Cheesy

So cut out your fabric you want one of the long rectangles
and two shapes, but pay heed. Cut the shaped pattern out then flip it and cut again so you can cut a reverse of it. Cheesy Does that make sense? LOL tell me if it doesn't Cheesy

then stitch it together by putting one shaped side and the rectangle together by putting right sides together. Cheesy start sewing at the curved end because the rectangle shape that hangs off the back of the shaped pattern doesn't get sewn to the large rectangle. You leave it free because it protects the hair when someone ties the two sides together. Cheesy Keeps your hair away from the knot ! YAY! Cheesy hehehehehe and if you don't have a serger I suggest hemming that lil rectangle flap before assembling all the pieces together Grin. whew! I am longwinded as heck! Cheesy

So you get this with one side sewn on:

and once you add the other side it will stand more upright for you Grin:

This is a view of it on the back of the head: (untied)

Frontal view:

Tied view:

Okay, questions? Comments? Critiques?

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

* Please do not sell any creations from my tutorials. I have already been informed of issues Sad I share my work to keep others from having to buy something when they could easily do it. This saddens me greatly*

edit: Sorry it took so long guys! My life got in the way!!!! Cheesy Sad poh! Cheesy LOL SO here is a paint drawing with the measurement details:

Forgive my crude paint skills but the shapes you need will be like the paper and fabric shown earlier. Cheesy LOL  Give me a few days and I will post up here ones I made for my girls and alterations/maybe a diff pattern. Cheesy I haven't made them yet so I am unsure of the amount of alterations that may be needed. Grin I hope this helps!!! Let me know if you have any questions! Cheesy

Okay,,,,, this is the first time I actually ran to my sewing room!!!!!!! Cheesy hehehehe I whipped up two of em.... quick question though do you think the reason the shape looks different to me is because I used a fleecey/felty kinda material or should I only use cotton/lycra?Huh

OOOOOOOOHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I found my camera! heheheh now batteries and camera are together! Tada! Cheesy Pics!!! Here is the partial loot from Tanza... LOL I say partial because the girls dug into the candy! The few canes you see is all that is left! Cheesy LOL They fell asleep tonight with their princess stars because they didn't want to lose their magic.... ;d lol awwwwwwwww...........

The story that Tanza wrote has aussie recipes on the back of every page and she went so far outta the way.... she included a conversion chart for measurements! (Which is greatly appreciated! Because I "Queen Ditz " of the kitchen never would have thought 3/4 cup didn't mean 3/4 cup) LMAO ;d hehehe Tanza did you save the story or take pics before you laminated? I tried to scan the story and recipes but it gives too much glare??? Cheesy Thanks Again for being such a wonderful swap partner Tanza! I love everything! Cheesy hehehehe

Just to sum it up one last time: loads of candy, catinthehat story and recipe book, napkin rings, wallet, princess stars, christmas card, poinsetta applique, Vegemite, THE BEAUTIFUL STOCKING! Cheesy, snowman stamper hehehehe I just decided yesterday (oh lets say three mins before I got my package that I needed to collect stamps so I can give the whole ATC thing a try ;d lol )

edit: I forgot one of the most FANTABULOUS THINGS!!!! A CD with Aussie music and some instructions for pattern drafting blocks for lingerie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH, and it has some kick a&& video clips too hehehehee

18  Woooowooooo! I DID IT! I MADE A CIRCLE SKIRT!!! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by diannab on: November 07, 2006 10:09:36 AM
I DID IT!!!!!!!!!
I, Diannab, made a circle skirt! For those that don't know me, I have been trying to make one for awhile and gave up completely frustrated and not understanding why I couldn't get it right........ Well wait no longer, because here is my first successful circle skirt (unhemmed ) and made with free fabric because I have already wasted so much fabric trying again and again and again! lol. To my surprise, the fabric I used is already in a tube Cheesy So that was fun to work with Grin lol heheheheheheheheheehhe.....


pardon my sewing mess in the background lol. Sorry, I cropped out her happy face cause she is my kiddo Grin hehehehehe

the action shot

I can't believe that I made something so simple into something so hard.... Shaking head.... I really can't but after being able to set in sleeves and sew bras, I knew I had to try and figure this out... Plus I want to make my girls the Anthropologie jacket in designer homage and to do that you have to make a bubble skirt and to do that you have to make a circle skirt Grin LOL so please, tel me what you think! All comments welcome and greatly appreciated (how else would I learn Grin ) LOL Oh, and the yoke turned out to be a twelve inch tube lol so I am debating about adding a top band and making it a dress. Cheesy It is such a beautiful teal color Grin I am so proud of myself!
LOL Thanks, DI

::::FINALLY!!!!!!!!:::::::         ::::::::::DRUMROLL::::::::::

hehehheheeh lookie what I am making Wink Yes, I finally found some moolah to go buy fabric.......... I don't know if you all watch WWE (wrestling) but my stepson and my nephew love it... they both want to be undertaker for halloween........ sooo........... using Buttericks 3830 size medium... I crafted this goodness---

I still need to add the collar and buttons. But, I am quite pleased with myself! This is the first large item I have sewn.... Grin and I made it from prelined vinyl (some kinda vinyl water resistant stuff) that I bought for 2.99 USD per yard at this great warehouse in Atlanta! I left off the yoke from the pattern because that isn't the style jacket that the Undertaker wears.... I have a hat that I bought on clearance... Cheesy (LOVE CLEARANCE) and removed the ribbon on it... it is a faux suede I am in the midst of making the boxing style gloves for their hands. They are going to wear black wife beater tank tops for the shirt.... I haven't decided should I go all out and make their pants too so they can have his lil skull painted on it or just tell them to slap on some black shoes and black pants? What do you guys think? the jacket will prolly be worn closed so I am not sure if it would matter..........

Also--anyone know how to get rid of that smell from the vinyl type fabric?

Comments/criticism welcome and greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry the pic is so large.......... it has never done that before....... any ideas?
