1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Long time, no sew.... on: November 29, 2010 02:13:10 PM
No the red one was inspired by this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=354524.0

It's from a pattern by McCall's or something....lol. I'm horrible at remembering my pattern numbers. I just kinda did a mix and match thing.

As for the pink tattoo one, if you want one like it, let me know...I'd be more than happy to make you one!!

Sewing is like my alcohol....it soothes me.

So, it's been forever since I've posted anything on here, but the sewing bug has bitten me and I have decided to pull out my massive stash of fabric and start on Christmas presents.

Please be nice!  Smiley

vegbee, I have to say honestly that you are my biggest inspiration on Craftster. It makes me feel so much better that I'm not the only one that goes without using a pattern.  Smiley  Your stuff is always so adorable and professional looking, and your wee monkey is GORGEOUS!! Thanks for posting your stuff and sharing with us.

Okay guys. Here's the tute for the halter dress....however, I just made a top for the lil one in this one. All you have to do to make it a dress, is just extend the sides of the top to the length you want. Please bear with me, I'v never made a tutorial for anything, so if I miss anything, just let me know. Here goes:

First, I cut out two triangles of fabric. I just kind of guesstimated how big they needed to be, (I HATE measuring) and held them up to the lil one to make sure they would fit. I made one side a little more angled than the other...like this:

Then I added my new best friend, bias tape. Once I finally figured out how to work with that stuff, it's wonderful!!!

I then measured out the bottom of the halter top, (or dress) and cut out two pieces of fabric; one of which I made a casing for the elastic. That's gonna be your back.


After I finished with the elastic, I then sewed the triangles to the rest of the front, by placing them where I wanted them to cross over, and right sides of the fabric together. After that, I flipped it over and topstitiched it, just to give it a little more security.


To finish things up, I sewed the front and back together, and folded the hem up 1/4", and then folded it again, then stitched it. Voila! A handy top that my lil one can wear and play in.

Again, if I've screwed up too badly, or there's anything I didnt clarify, just let me know. Oh! And sorry for the HUGE numbers of pics.

I'm so sorry that I haven't posted a tutorial yet. I know I promised one, and I don't like to go back on my promises. I've been sick, and between that, working, and being full time mommy, I havent had quite the perfect moment to make one. I have the pictures, just not the text. LOL. I super promise, this weekend, you'll have the tutorial.

oh, and YES....it was just a temporary tattoo on her chest. Roll Eyes

Wow. All the compliments are making me blush. Embarrassed You guys are all so nice. And, in fact, that is a little tattoo on her chest. I have one across my sternum, and little munchkin decided she wanted to be just like mommy. I would be more than happy to make a tutorial for this, but it will take a couple of days. I promise, it's actually very, very simple and easy. The skull fabric? Two 94 cent bandanas from WalMart, and some bias tape. I just traced the top from an existing tank top, and just continued out the lines to the length I wanted.
