LOVE this! We hae the same owl print in our nursery and it is awesome. I have managed to work so many colors into the decor using that picture. Love that you went with orange! It is my favie!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Hanging Bathroom Organizer on: September 14, 2010 05:29:45 PM
We live in a rental townhouse with a tiny (cozy!) half bath. I hate it. It's useless. No one uses it for actual toileting because it is basically in the kitchen and everyone can hear you. Plus peeing in the kitchen is just...unsanitary. So we pretty much use it for storage, and I on occasion do my hair or makeup in there. However, there isn't actually any storage space in there so it's really just a closet with piles of crap everywhere. And a towel rack. A towel rack? There's no tub! There is already a hand towel area so why on earth is there a towel rack?! Can you tell I hate our bathroom? And so- I dug out some scraps and made this:

We also use this room to hang ugly paintings from various family members that we are too sentimental/polite to get rid of. I tried to make the organizer match this one somewhat:

I'm very pleased with it. All fabric comes from the dollar bin at Wally World. I double lined it with some old tablecloths we had to really give it stiffness. There was some hand cranking of the machine, I tell you what.
Close up of the fabrics:

Hubby says it looks like an old lady made it. That's what it was supposed to look like, silly.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hideous Nightgown into Mommy & Me outfits! (Too Many Pics) on: September 08, 2010 02:19:09 PM
Way back at Xmastime, Santa brought me this:

While Santa means well, that thing was huge and fugly. I am six months pregnant in that picture. He thought I needed room to grow...not sure just how big he thought I was going to get. And has he ever in the entire eight years of our relationship seen me in a nightgown? No. But I loved the pattern and the material so I chopped that sucker up and made this:

I used all of the existing hems so it was literally three seams and 20 minutes. Very excite. And I had enough left over to make baby clothes! It is our very first set of matchy matchies and I'm stoked.

Even though you can't tell in the picture. She looks like a little sausage but that's okay, this is only the test shirt. Action shots:

And this one. Isn't she the sweetest little chicken ever? I eat her up.

I think she likes it!

Oh yes please on the mini tute! I'm always in the market for a good dress for whippin my boobies out in public...to feed my baby of course Smiley

This is amazing. I am still breastfeeding Baby #1 and trying to conceive baby #2, so I will be nursing for awhile. I make a lot of my own tops/dresses but I just make them strapless. The only problem is my 6 month old now likes to try to whip em out on her own...I'd be really interested to hear other the ways you have hidden the nursing aspect!!!!!

My little Bean is in the anti-stroller club, too. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't discovered the mei tai. They're so easy to whip up to fit the seasons, my outfits...though sometimes I am guilty of wearing the baby and pushing all my stuff in the stroller.

So very cute! I have yards and yards of this fabric. I used it for table runners at my wedding and I haven't gotten around to making it into pretty clothing yet, but you inspire me! Yours is adorable!

Love those gathers!  So you just cut the front piece longer than the pattern called for?

Yup! I slashed it into pieces and taped them to a long sheet of paper to maintain the shaping for the hips. But basically, yes, just cut it long.

Oh this is super cute!!! Your little curly sue is a cutie as well! It looks fairly simple to do, I'd like to try and make a newborn-sized version. Of course, if you wanted to give us some tips on how you did it...we wouldn't complain!
