1  "Baby Deer" pinafore - 01/2008 Ottobre in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dancingrabbit on: May 28, 2008 11:46:37 AM
I made this pinafore to go over the Maya blouse from the same issue.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=248548.0  I think the original pattern may have called for actual piping.  I added just the fabric strips without cording into the seams and ironed them flat.   I like the extra contrast of a wider strip; do you?

I love making things that layer because I'm such a slow sewer that outfits have to get a lot of extra mileage.  Hopefully this can also be worn as a top by itself.  I'm still pregnant with the intended recipient so I don't have a way to try it on an actual baby.

Now to find the right fabric for matching pants...  what would you think about pants out of the same navy fabric?  Or is that too much?

2  "Maya" blouse 01/2008 Ottobre in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dancingrabbit on: May 28, 2008 06:51:40 AM
This was my first Ottobre attempt, and I'm so pleased with it.  Their patterns are so well drafted!  I made size 68 cm for our baby due in October - I hope it will fit.  I used a quilting cotton that I bought a while back when our Hancock's closed.

Anyone actually tried this blouse on an actual baby?  How did it fit?

3  my version "Aqua" shorts - 03/2008 Ottobre in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dancingrabbit on: May 28, 2008 06:36:39 AM
Here's my version of Ottobre's Aqua shorts.  I made a size 62 and a size 86, both exactly alike.  Instead of corduroy, I used cotton twill - I got both pairs out of a $2.50 remnant so yay for thrifty sewing!

These went together quickly; ironing the pocket seam allowances down before topstitching was the longest part.  But the best part?  When my son tried his on, he refused to take them off, and then he said, "Can you make me some more of these?"  Grin

Now I just hope the other pair fits #2 next summer.

4  Zoe and Jayne costumes in Halloween Costumes by dancingrabbit on: November 04, 2007 05:07:48 PM
Here are the Zoe and Jayne costumes I made for myself and my son.   I was pretty pleased with them.  I drafted the vest, both gun belts, and bracer from scratch, and sort of made up the Jayne hat as I went along.  Although it's just a costume, everything is lined, topstitched, etc.  Only thing I'd do differently is go to a party with more Browncoats, so I wouldn't have to spend all night explaining the Jayne hat.   Grin

I received a lovely wool scarf yesterday from dancing rabbit. It was tan in color & a lovely pattern. Also included were a cute as can be snowman zip baggie & and some adorable  trim that I plan on using as some edging for a scented sachet. Oh yeah I cant forget the yummy little candle she sent too. The smell is divine. :-)
I will post pics very soon so keep your eyes peeled. Thanks Dancing Rabbit!

Here they are, but if you post better pics I'll be glad.

The scarf is the Lopi Lace Scarf from "Weekend Knitting".

And I made this zippered pouch:

But I didn't take pictures for some reason of the lace I crocheted.. it was over a yard long, ecru, and made from a neat pattern I found... somewhere.

I made one too!  Unfortunately I don't think the lady I made it for has ever used it.   Cry

7  Felt food in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by dancingrabbit on: October 03, 2007 07:17:54 AM
I usually sew clothing, but got the urge to make some felt food for my son.  It was fun!  I intend to make more; just gotta buy more felt first!

I received today - Velour is the best!

These notebooks are incredible.

My awesome nerdy girl stitch markers, featuring Alfred Kinsey's Time cover, Glenn Seaborg, and the chemical symbol for Seaborgium.  AND a really fun Cleopatra/Garbo bracelet.

Two sweet notecards with a "time" motif.  I'm really looking forward to using them.

And finally, an "I Heart Sg" t-shirt that I can't wait to wear.

Thanks Velour - you're awesome!

Ok, I'm going to try to post pics of the swap package backstgartist sent me.  Not that pictures can capture its awesomeness.   Grin

Cell phone cozy - it is so very cute!  (Inspired by Leland??)  One of the bunny's ears is floppy, and he has the cutest expression on his face.  And the best part?  It even has a window for the caller ID.

The neatest supply box ever - she drew tons of bunnies doing all the things bunnies do, and on the lid wrote two quotes.  "Rabbits have a habit of coming for breakfast and staying for lunch.  Now there's one leaf instead of a bunch!" - Gerry Kruger  AND "Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet" - Colette   Isn't that just too true?

A stuffed bunny in the shape of a ring.  I had intended to put him on the extra spindle of my sewing machine, but as soon as my boy saw it, he said "Aww" and began to love on it.  So I gotta wait till he lets me have it back.

AND she also sent a cool bunny toss toy and a carrot-shaped package of jelly beans that are very yummy.  Whew - did I miss anything?  Oh, even the package wrapping was bunny themed, with a cute bunny drawn next to the address.   Smiley

Thanks again, backstgartist!  You rock!
