1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Inauguration shirt on: January 19, 2009 04:04:18 PM
So, I had some Lg white tees laying around waiting to have something done to them.  I had an inspiration this morning to make an Obama T to wear to work tomorrow in honor of this historic day.  Here it is!  Design "inspired by" cafepress.com and hand painted by me.  T-shirt reconstruction method from http://community.livejournal.com/t_shirt_surgery/3607643.html.

Please ignore the crappy faces I'm making and the frizzy hair.  What can I say...I'm not photogenic.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Beanie on: January 14, 2009 05:05:58 PM
Here's a beanie I crocheted for a friend for Christmas.  Used the pattern found here:  http://www.allfreecrafts.com/crochet/beanie.shtml.  I lined it using a soft old shirt from the tutorial found here (wonderful tute!!):  http://techknitting.blogspot.com/2008/06/fully-lining-hats-with-polar-fleece.html.  The recipient loved it!!!!

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Holiday Spirits on: December 18, 2008 08:00:36 PM
I made some homemade amaretto to give out as gifts.

I used the recipe found here:  http://www.insidetheloopblog.com/2008/12/now-thats-spirit.html.

4  COOKING / Dessert / Humble pie on: November 27, 2008 11:17:21 AM
I present the all american apple pie.  Nothing spectacular, I'm just wicked proud of my crust - I'm usually iffy on them.  Made some crust cookies with the leftover dough (just like grandma used to do).  I used the reliable better homes and gardens pie recipe.

5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / old lady fingers on: October 30, 2008 06:45:58 PM
I made these for a work Halloween party.

Recipe can be found at:  http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.fc77a0dbc44dd1611e3bf410b5900aa0/?vgnextoid=98f7a6a90e0f4110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&vgnextfmt=default
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / I like to do drawings! on: August 11, 2008 05:52:59 PM
Here's a onesie I decorated with a wee river otter, using crayola fabric markers.  I found a similar graphic online and free handed it.

It's a gift for a co-worker.  Any thoughts?

**Sorry if this is the wrong forum.  It's not really children's sewing or stenciling...wasn't quite sure***
7  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / malphi wrap dress on: July 13, 2008 08:58:38 AM
Ok, so I'm absolutely in love with Malphi's wrap dresses.  Alas, I cannot afford to purchase on of her lovely kits.  Any thoughts on a pattern similar?

8  KNITTING / Knitalongs / domiknitrix's lil' red riding hoodie on: January 22, 2008 12:41:21 PM
Anyone interested in working on the lil' red riding hoodie from the domiknitrix book? (http://www.domiknitrix.com/prj/lilredhoodie.cfm).  I've been working on it for a while now and I could sure use some commiseration  Grin.  This is my first sweater, lifted increase, short row shaping etc.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / another kimono inspired hoodie on: October 01, 2007 11:30:28 AM
....And finally, I post pics of my version of the kimono inspired hoodie.  If you haven't seen madpimp's glorious original (and tutorial) check it out: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177160.0.  Seriously, that girl has skills!

This hoodie (wonky as it is) was in the presence of Martha Stewart last week at her first ever sewing show.  All audience members had to bring a sewn item in and some were featured during the show.  I got to sit in the front row and valiantly waved my hoodie whenever they prompted us to hold up our projects.  Alas, I sat in front of the kitchen and the cameras were all poised at the other end of the set the whole time.  My backside did make it on camera briefly....the camera does really add 10 lbs or else I never realized how huge my butt really is Grin.

Anywho, I used the back shirt pattern piece from Wendy Mullen's Sew You book for the back and both front pieces.  It worked for the most part except according to the pattern I am a large but the thing turned out at least 3 sizes too big.  I took it in a million times and now the right shoulder is a little goofy.  Also, I learned how to use my serger through this project which means I wish I could go back and fix the things I didn't know in the beginning.  I added ribbon ties instead of a zipper and added a few inches to the sleeve cuffs so they would bell out.
