NuttyWoman, Pelon is really a good brand to check out if you haven't already. I ALWAYS buy pelon interfacing. They have several different thicknesses. It's great. Cheesy

ColourCloud, it's actually SUPER easy. I used all light weight cottons and had no trouble with too many layers. Give it a shot! (Though hopefully your zipper goes in straight. lol. mine was a biatch.)

Thanks everyone!

This is the first time I've ever sewn a wallet. I've made them out of duct tape and packaging tape before, though. This one turned out wayy better than those EVER did. lol.

I wanted a new wallet, mostly because mine was an old lady-ish style wallet that was meant to hold a check book and a bunch of mom-type stuff. I don't carry a check book with me anymore, and I'm not a mom, so a smaller, lighter wallet was what I was after.

I only interfaced the outer layer.

The outside also matches my purse, which is underneath the wallet in all these pics. I made it using scraps I had around the house, and a tutorial on the burda style website. The only thing I changed was the snap. I don't like snaps, and for some reason I couldn't find a needle, so I used some velcro that took ages to find. lol

C/c always appreciated!

I broke my butt. Literally. I fell down some stairs and broke my tail bone. So, of course, I needed to craft something to make my tush comfortable while sitting, RIGHT?

I bring you: The Tenderbunz Pillow.

Made with fabric I already had in my stash (orange fleece and green waffle knit thermal crap.) and a whole thing of quilters batting. It took longer to cut out and stuff than it did to sew. Cheesy

What an awesome way to honor someone! I'm sorry for your loss. My grandpa died on October 20th of last year, so I know how you're feeling. <3

First: YOU HAS A KICKIN' RAD BODY! /jealousy. lol.

Second: I think it looks good without sleeves. But if you think you'll need them to ward off frostbite, you could always go the detachable sleeve route. That way you can see how it looks with, and then if you don't like it, they can come off. Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Not really sewing, but it's for a kid! [img hefty] on: October 02, 2008 10:04:18 PM
My friend is having a baby (soonish) and her baby shower is this Saturday. I didn't want to just buy the same old same old blanket + onesie + hat + booties, but I wanted what I got her to be functional. SO. I bought a ton of ribbon, some onesies, and some hair clips and got to work.

The first set is a princess set. I made two korker bows, attached them to lined alligator clips, and then stenciled a crown onto the onesie. At least, I hope it looks like a crown. lol. I'm not the best at painting/drawing. I did my best, though.

Close up of the bow. It's my first time making bows. They look alright, right?

Second set, buzz buzz, is bees! I hand painted the bees, no stenciling. The pacifier leash is two layers of ribbon sewn together with invisible thread, and then the snap I hand sewed. The bow is pretty basic, and is attached to a lined alligator clip.

They look kind of weird, but like I said, I'm not good at drawing or painting! And if it looks shiney, it's because it's still wet. I couldn't wait. Tongue

Comments/criticism welcomed and appreciated. What do you think?!

I saw the thumbnail and I was like "OMG HOUSE!" so it definitely looks like him. lol.

You did such a great job. I can't imagine working on something THAT BIG. I'd go nuts!
