11  Kids reupholstered recliner chair in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MacesMeMe on: July 23, 2009 02:35:06 PM
My oldest DS has had this chair for 10 years now. I have never really liked the Winnie the Pooh fabric. I had it in the yard sale pile but my almost 3yr old DS kept telling me NO he likes it. So I decided to reupholster it.




I wish I had in progress pics but my camera has been out to service 2ce in the last month. I ripped out the staples and saved the exsisting fabric as my guide (marked the back of each piece so I know what went where), including ripping all the stitching apart. I got nervous about putting it all back together but it actually was alot easier than I thought.

My original fabric choice was a green paisley but DH wasn't feeling it for both DS & DD. It was really hard trying to find something neutral for the both of them.

Hello. Haven't posted in so long. This is what I've been up to. Done with freezer paper, except for Mario that was clear contact paper.
This one I used spray paint for.

My 2 year old DS specially ordered this one

And my DD wanted this for Daddy

Happy Summer!

13  Does this say spring?? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MacesMeMe on: February 26, 2009 06:07:53 PM
We are headed to FL next week to visit family and Disney of course and I was going to buy a new bag but decided to make one instead after I saw this pretty color combo at the local quilter shop.

Here's my spring-y hobo bag!

Inside with pocket and clasp

((by the way MOST EXPENSIVE fabric I've ever used for a bag!))

I used runnermom's tut found here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=125025.0 I already had the pattern but liked her version better! I kept the tie version though

Ok I recieved from yardenxanthe and boy did she spoil me, I got lots of goodies too! THANKS!

The hoodie for my daughter has a spider on it b/c she LOVES spiders and the pockets and hood are re-done with wool. The little guys has turtles (my fav Smiley ) on the front and each sleeve, we had squeels of joy! Sorry for the crummy pics we had just walked in and they wanted to go play.

And my stuff, in the take out is a kit to make lip balm, how cool!! and my DD claimed the "cookie man" to hang on the tree

Thanks again this was so much fun.

15  New sweet baby! Hair?? in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MacesMeMe on: November 27, 2008 12:55:29 PM
Haven't posted much in awhile, but figured I would share the new baby. She is about 14in tall, DH said to embroider her face but I painted instead b/c I'm  not that great at embroidery. Her dress is lined and has an applique & matching bloomers. She has fleece overalls that zip, a shirt and a hat for now. I am not sure how to do the hair, the book I have gives a how to on looping-but not sure about it.

she has on baby socks b/c I was afraid of her getting dirty.

the book I used was The Woman's Day Book of soft toys and dolls by Joan Rusell --loaner from the library--looking on ebay to buy!

DO you like??
Any suggestions for her hair, yes, no or how to??

16  Driving hat HERE IT IS in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MacesMeMe on: October 16, 2008 05:46:33 PM
Ivy cap, driving cap, golf cap, scally cap or flat hat, whatever you would like to call it. I promised awhile back I would get this posted but of course the printer broke. But it is now done, I will get the pdf for the pattern pieces and tutorial posted on my blog as soon as DH gets home to help me.

Anyways here it is, it's plain tan with a black snap on the brim. It's actually camo canvas on the inside. Wink

It fits my older DS who is about 21.5 in head but he was outside. He wants to paint something on the top of it  Huh

17  Re: HELP! Child Harness pattern. in Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions by MacesMeMe on: October 16, 2008 10:04:48 AM
We have a store bought one that looks like the monkey backpack from walmart $10.

BUT I also have made my own. We had a spongebob that was a mini cd backpack, so I used the exsisting hardware (-the original black straps) that was on it and added my own harness strap and "leash" ribbon-but a thicker type that I made double and sewed down the sides. THe front buckle was saved from an old dog harness. And the leash is detachable too, not sure if you can see the clip.

I made it to fit my daughter when she was 2, she can still wear it and will be 4 soon, and my son now 2 wears it. spongebob was 50cents and the ribbon a dollar maybe.

19  They were supposed to be "Susette" sash pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by MacesMeMe on: September 30, 2008 06:08:57 PM
Without writting a book on how these did not go wrong, just assume it did, and well it did.

I had to last minute add some length to the bottom b/c she didn't like them short. so yea they probably look a little screwy. My DD picked that green flower fabric out for a doll (still cut out not sewn) and she insisted that's what we use for the sash. I'm not thrilled with the bulkyness of the waist/crotch area. The pink was a yard or so and I didn't realize it faded like that til I opened it out to cut.

without the sash.

I'd like to toss them in the garbage but she likes them  Angry . I think when I get new blades for my serger this weekend I will fix the insides b/c they are horrible!

20  Barbie & Carebear shirts gets a do over in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by MacesMeMe on: September 23, 2008 02:08:21 PM
I've had this barbie shirt for awhile and DH cringed at the thought of me wearing it. DD wanted it, so I finally got to work. I took it in, added some stripey arms which were an old pair of her tights and roll hemmed everything else.

And this gray carebear shirt, she found at the thrift shop and asked if I could make it for her. It was supposed to have the cap sleeves but they got wrecked in the re-make. The bottom and sleeve ends are serged inside out-originally by mistake but I went with it.

Yes she is into the crazy posing stage & they are both nightgowns so I wasn't really worried about making them perfect
