1  Yoga Mat Bag, McCall's 4261 in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fabeins on: February 23, 2008 07:05:16 AM
I made my first bag - hooray. I actually had made a coat out of this royal blue wide whale corduroy, but it was huge and unlovely. Embarrassed  I decided to turn it into a mat bag to salvage something from the fabric. This is an easy pattern with good results possible in a couple hours or less. I made the strap from the same fabric and added ribbon trim to the pocket.

2  Simplicity 3775 Gotta love it! in Sewing Pattern Reviews by fabeins on: February 06, 2008 07:06:26 PM
Everyone seems to love love love this pattern on Pattern Review, so I tried it. Turns out it is pretty easy and quite flattering. I think I'll make several more in different sleeve lengths. Wink

Comments and questions welcome.

3  McCall's 5512 Hilary Duff Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fabeins on: October 28, 2007 09:44:02 AM
Despite being named for Hilary Duff, a cute dress and fairly easy. What do you think?

4  Simplicity 4020 View D - flash kimono top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fabeins on: October 01, 2007 02:20:19 PM
This is a popular pattern and I can see why. Came together easily and I like the result. Used a stretch thermal knit from eBay.

5  Skulls and Roses Dress - M5379 View B in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fabeins on: September 23, 2007 02:35:32 PM
Loving this dress - I'm envisioning it for fall with a cardigan over, tights and boots, too!
The skull and roses fabric came from eBay. McCall's pattern is nice to work with... sexy, I think

Any feedback?

6  Green Retro Print Dress, Simplicity 3874 View A in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fabeins on: August 26, 2007 10:05:46 AM
I made this dress and love the way it turned it our with my $1 fabric. The zipper is a little wonky, but I've learned no one will notice. Only problem - the bottom is too snug. I might be able to wear it in about 10 pounds... D'oh! I will make it again though and just make the skirt a little bigger . Darned hips!
Feedback welcome. Thanks!

Here's my latest sun dress project. My boy is from Melbourne so it's an homage.

Fabric closer

8  New tunic top - McCall's M5465 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fabeins on: July 29, 2007 08:11:11 AM
This is a new McCall's fall collection pattern. I think it turned out cute, although on  the picture I look enormous.  I made view C, but at the last minute decided it wanted to be a tunic with gathered sleeves, so I added elastic to the sleeves and didn't add the contrast band.
Fabric is thin stretch jersey with silver skulls and roses from eBay.
Comments welcome

9  Love McCall's M5425 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fabeins on: June 02, 2007 11:11:54 AM
This is the first dress I've made from this new McCall's pattern. So easy, even though I used too shear fabric and had to sew a double layer (black thin knit lining). No action shot yet, but it's just easy, breezy and comfy. Next I'm making a tunic length one to go with jeans.

10  Easy Stitch 'n save M5294 by McCall's in Sewing Pattern Reviews by fabeins on: January 28, 2007 12:41:57 PM
This is the second skirt I've made with this pattern and overall, I like it, BUT... the side slits to allow you to get in and out without a zipper show skin when you close the skirt! I have added one set of hooks on this version to try and help, but I'll need another to close the gap all the way.
On this version of the skirt I also used velcro at the waistband instead of just a hook and eye. The skirt is flannel.

Comments are welcomed...
