41  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Spaced out rocket..... on: October 28, 2008 07:34:52 PM
Hi I am new to embroidering, but when i saw Jenny Harts designs at my local craft store I had to buy one or two so now I have a new hobby. i still don't know what I am doing really but I watched some online tutorials. thank you needlenthread.com. I am happy with how it turned out! here's a closeup of the rocket I was going for a curious George style. THe background fabric is actually light blue.

here is the whole thing

I originally was going to incorporate this piece into a skirt for my dd. but I didn't lay it out on the cloth the right way.  Maybe I can applique it on, any ideas or suggestions appreciated.

Here is my paper bead bracelet. inspired by many posts I have seen here on craftster. I used an old magazine glue, mod podge and elastic string stuff. I had enough beads to make a bracelet for my daughter as well

here is an action shot

Hope you enjoy!

Does anyone have any advice on tying knots in the elastic!?

I just bought to jungle theme pillow cases at the thrift store.  I think the fabric is cool and want to make something out of them.  but I don't know what. the other side has elephants and zebras.

Any Ideas?
I have 2 pillow cases 32 x 19.  I am open to any ideas, from home decor to PJ's for dd.
44  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Black and gold velvet christmas dress on: December 17, 2007 07:06:12 AM
I finished(sorta) my dd's christmas dress!  I had to finish it on the fly two hours before going to have holiday pictures taken with her cousins. I ran out of thread and had to stitch witch the hem, it didn't work very well and started coming apart after an hour Shocked

Please ignore the messy house
Sorry about the poor picture quality.
The dress looks awesome in the professional pictures!
Thanks to everyone who helped me figure out how to make the bow Smiley
45  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / wallets are fun! on: December 17, 2007 06:45:10 AM
I was looking at the tutorial list for Xmas gift ideas and decided to try wallets.  Very satisfying! quick to make and you can use all the cool fabric scraps I don't have the heart to throw away Grin

the red one is the first one I made Embarrassed

Not very well constructed, but fun to make!
46  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Tricycle Jacket on: December 10, 2007 01:37:38 PM
I used this tute and some Ikea fabric
to make this Jacket for my 3 year old

the sleeves and jacket are a little too long, so maybe it will fit her in the spring.  I need a tutorial on how to shape sleeve caps and sleeve holes. arrgh Huh
Let me know what you think.
47  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with velvet bow on: December 09, 2007 09:24:11 PM
I am making a christmas dress for my dd. There is a black velvet waist band and I am planning on making a bow out of the velvet. The bow will be attatched after the dress is completed.  However now that the time has come to make the bow(which seemed the simplest part during the planning stage), I am wondering how exactly to make a bow out of velvet and have it look nice and pro. 
Sorry if the answer is totally obvious. I am new to sewing and don't want to waste a lot of material experimenting.

Thanks for any advice!
48  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / well dresed red teddy bear on: December 09, 2007 08:08:42 PM
I just finished this bear for my dd. I followed a Debbie bliss pattern in a book my sis has.

I love the mismatched huge eyes.

The dress i made for her? turned out too small but I really like the collar. Maybe I should make some pants too.
What do you think?
Also if i was to do this pattern again I would stuff the bear with fabric scraps instead of white stuffing because it shows through to much.  Or maybe just stuff it less.
any way I am super happy with how It turned out and hope dd loves it too!
Thanks for looking
49  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Are dress forms worth the money? on: December 03, 2007 12:30:41 PM
Has anyone purchased a dress form that they love and are truly happy with?

I want to get a dress form for Christmas, but now that I am looking at them I'm not sure.  The singer 150 has an adjustable torso length( I have a freakishly long torso) but all the reviews say it is flimsy. I haven't found any dress forms with great reviews. Do they all just suck?
I am considering just making a duct tape form but I would like a adjustable form so I could make clothes for other people too.

50  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first toddler hoodie! on: October 15, 2007 08:20:20 PM
I just finished making this hoodie for my dd. I didn't use a pattern so there were some problems along the way but I am very happy with how it turned out! This is my first time posting a pic so I hope everyone can see this
