1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bad Girls Purse on: March 08, 2006 11:10:21 AM
I made a hobo bag to tote library books, mail, and patterns around in.
Embroidering it was the most fun!



2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Purse for my 9 yo tomboy- Pirate & maltese cross adorned on: February 22, 2006 11:35:06 AM
My 9 yo dd wanted a purse/lunch sack that wasn't girly.  She is a huge tomboy, and a big west coast choppers fan--thus the Maltese Cross.
This is what we came up with:


Oh, and I made the purse from reconstructed jeans I purchased at the thrift store.  I then downloaded the embroidery designs from a couple of sites on the internet (they were free designs- YAY!) and used my embroidery machine to embroider the pockets.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 1 pr of junior size 3 jeans--turned into a pair of capris AND a skirt for 6 yo on: July 29, 2005 12:57:12 PM
I hated to get rid of my 13 yo dd's jeans she outgrew, because they were just too cute---
I turned them into a skirt (embellished with heart & star stitches) with a fringed bottom and a pair of capri pants for her 6 yo sister.

4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Argh! Pirate life for me- Costume for dd 7 on: October 24, 2004 09:41:30 PM
Pic of Halloween Costume I finished today for dd #2.
It was a really fun costume to make.  I got to pull a little from this pattern and that pattern and my imagination.... and it all came together pretty well. Grin

She was trying to be menacing--and yo ho ho-ing during the picture Roll Eyes Hee! Hee!

5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Career Day/Halloween Costume for dd #1 on: October 18, 2004 12:32:40 PM
Last Friday was career day for my 7th grader.  She has wanted to be a veterinarian forever, so I whipped up some scrubs for her.  They will do double duty for Halloween, once she found out she couldn't get a cut from her sisters' trick or treating candy, she decided to dress up too.
Including pattern (bought at 99cent sale at JoAnns), the entire scrub outfit only cost $5.50 to make.  Cool!
I embroidered her name and DVM on the scrub shirt pocket.  She said no one understood DVM meant doctor of veterinary medicine--I said it was better than dh's suggestion to embroider VD (veterinary dr). Roll Eyes
Here's a  couple of pics:

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Soccer quilt for baby on: October 03, 2004 03:28:03 PM
I just finished this baby quilt for our dear friends.
The front is a soccer ball embroidered with the words
MVP 2004
El Torito
(El Torito is their nickname for their new son)
The colors are red, white, and green for the mexican flag.
Dad is a soccer player, coach, and major fan.
Back of the quilt is a preprinted panel with roads, and planes, and buildings, that the little boy can play on with his cars when he is big enough to sit.

The mark of a true seamstress is not in her ability to sew,
but in her tenacity to rip.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / lunch bag on: August 12, 2004 04:09:49 PM
I made this lunchbag for my kindergardener today.    I used the Butterick 6735 pattern. 
Her teacher called today and told me that the boys in the class had been throwing her brown bagged lunch all over the playground and all the contents were sandy and smushed, and my baby was crying Cry
This made me very mad Angry
So I made this beautiful (lol) velcro creation for her, to prevent this from happening again.  Darn boys!!!  She says all boys are stinky now---except, of course, Daddy  Smiley

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Kitty cat halter dress on: July 29, 2004 06:35:55 PM
Summer Halter Dress for dd# 3.  I used New Look 6361 pattern with a kitty cat material she picked out that reminded her of Bratz cats!  And pink gingham for the skirt part.
This dress was super easy to make and dd loves it. Grin
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Super easy summer shirt on: July 19, 2004 04:38:03 PM
Most recent sewn garment.  I made this super easy summer shirt and "do-rag" ok, I guess it is a head kerchief or something like that--but my kids hate it when I call them do-rags--so I do; just to torture them Grin
Here is the link
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Froggy Quilt on: July 19, 2004 04:24:26 PM
I made this quilt a couple of months ago for my oldest dd's teacher who was having a baby.  She did her nursery in bugs--so I figured that a frog would go along with it nicely.  I appliqued all my own patterns on and had fun with various stitches on my machine.

Its hard to tell from the picture, but he has a red tongue done in stitches that is wrapped around one of the fireflies.
This was super fun to design and make.
