2  My very first properly constructed garment! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ironmaiden on: July 10, 2007 05:21:14 AM
I'm so excited about this because everything I've made up until now has been sort of improvised and a tad on the shoddy side.  This time, I took the time to do my homework and make sure everything was done right (okay, the hem has to be redone, but...).

$2.99 bedsheet from Savers.  No pattern.

3  Sparkly Old Navy tunic ----> toddler minidress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ironmaiden on: July 04, 2007 02:53:40 PM
I bought this a couple of summers ago and wore it once... it was sort of shapeless and unflattering, so I decided to see if I could reuse it.


I think the front is a tad dull but it looks quite cute on my DD Cheesy.

5  Anthropologie inspired capelet :D in Knitting: Completed Projects by ironmaiden on: June 22, 2007 05:48:48 AM
I decided a few months ago that I wanted to learn to knit, and this was one of the first patterns I saw and fell in love with.

Pattern: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62184.msg588576

I finally decided to try it, and this is what I came up with:

(It was way too early in the morning when this pic was taken lol.)

I did M1T increases in place of the yarn overs, but it's otherwise the same.  Still need to shop for a pin to close.

Now I'm trying to tackle all of the other sweater patterns I collected but was too scared to try lol.

6  zebra bag, take 2 (lots o' pics) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ironmaiden on: June 10, 2007 10:05:38 AM
I wanted to make a sturdier version of the zebra bag I posted a day or two ago, so I made another and added some heavy duty interfacing, an extra layer of fabric under the outer fabric, and a zipper pocket (my first one):

It's denim with a cotton lining.  It's also much cuter IRL.

This is mine:

It's my first machine, so not too bad.  I'm going to be scouring yard sales and thrift shops after some of the finds I've seen in this thread though!

9  Re: Sewing a burlap tote. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by ironmaiden on: May 31, 2007 06:04:10 PM
I've never dealt with sewing burlap. I got a massive burlap coffee sack and want to make a few tote-type bags from it. I don't know what to expect/any specifics in dealing with burlap (although I heard it's a bit of a pain).

I assume I should wash it first (it was never used to hold beans, it was just a display bag). The fibers from it are all over me from holding it...I hope washing it eliminates the problem.

If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Disclaimer: I have no idea what I am talking about.

That said, I made a bag a couple of weeks ago from burlap:

(Sorry about all the other stuff in the pic, too lazy to take a new one.)

I just made it for like a beach/shopping bag, nothing fancy.  I lined it with cotton so nothing would poke out (like knitting needles lol).

It didn't press well, before or after washing.  The fibers everywhere problem was solved with washing though.  I broke one needles while working with it, but only when I was going through several layers (and I don't have a hardcore machine).

I'm a n00b though so I imagine others will know more.
