1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Linen babyshoes. Now with pattern on p.3 on: January 22, 2008 01:23:21 PM
I really dont know what measurements would fit a newborn. The sole in the pattern posted above is 11cm when scaled according to the reference mark.
This would fit a 3-6 month baby.

To make another size I would just measure the foot, add 2 cm + seam allowance I guess. Little feet needs room, and I think its better to make them a tad to big.

ETA: I would love to se pics If anyone makes a pair of these.
Thanks !! I'll let you kow how I get on.. Smiley

I made a drawing. Hope this makes it clearer:
Thanks for that Honeypie!
My sister is expecting in May, what kind of measurements do you need to make a boot that fits? just the length of the foot or more? And how do you calculate the size of the upper piece?

I made these fabric flowers for an evening dress- it's a great way to match your outfit and use leftover bits of fabrics:
These have Kanzashi petals and a piece of velvet ribbon:

This one has an organza yoyo in the middle and fake leather petals - the circular piece is made of silk cocoon.

I also made a very simple bracelet - it has a sewn-on pressure stud closure

And the handbag's flower is made very simply with the fake leather shapes ( it's great it doesn't fray at all):

Hope it gives you some ideas!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Evening dress- satin and organza - with custom bodice pattern! Lots pics on: January 21, 2008 04:09:30 AM
Hello!!!!!!!!!! Haven't been on crafsters of aaaaaaaaaaaages!! Undecided

Here is my latest sewing project : I made myself an evening dress from scratch, as bought patterns always need this or that changing.

I wanted a dress like that:

First I made myself a model of my own bust using a tee shirt and parcel tape and made my bodice pattern from it:

Like that:

And here is the end result!

The organza layers are just wrapped around - that what if one day I want to try a different organza colour I just need to make that!
I had lots of trouble trying to sort the edges of the organza over skirt though but in the end I opted for cinging the edges with my craft soldering iron :

The flowers are not sewn on directly, just pinned into place with safety pins, so I can re-use them on another outfit or move them where ever! Grin

I also made a matching small handbag:

and barcelet:

Altogether I am really pleased because for once the bodice actually fitted me properly!! Grin Grin

Thanks Mini and ZaftigMomma!
I'm glad your books fit in the bag too! It was really fun to make the tree with all that wool unravelled from one of the scarves. Smiley

I love how beautiful it is - thanks for sharing VeryBigJen!

poly fiberfill with rice on the bottom for weight.  I usually don't have liquids in my craft area.  What I would love is the traditional sawdust.  I've been thinking of emery sand and coffee grounds too, and also read somewhere that you can use those metallic scrubbers wrapped in poly fiberfill but have never tried it.
thanks for these ideas every one! Smiley
 I make felt you see, so stuff may get wet. I wonder if there is any pet shop would sell sawdust? that's an interesting idea. Still I think I'll have to go for something like the man-made micro beads.

I couldn't believe the variety of these!!!
I made myself one - totally practical not decorated square thing- and realised how important the stuffing was. I had a block of foam, but although it's fab for pinning in, you can't remove the pins without holding the cushion with the other hand - which is silly because I'm holding the fabrics with the other hand.  I ended up stuffing it with rice which gave it weight, but of course must be kept away from moisture  Undecided.. What do you guys use? I like heavy cushions. What do you think? Huh

It really stand out and just looking at it is a joy! I's love to adapt the idea for thread bobbins too.
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: More decopaged bamboo beads on: October 11, 2007 01:26:34 AM
I really like those!
I've got an idea for a secret society: Every bead has a word from a long sentence (and a number indicating its place in the sentence, let's be practical here!) , and when the group meets your can read the sentence when they sit in the right order.
