  1. This is what I made this year for Adeline. So proud of myself. It is made of fleece and the hat is lined with flannel. The booties have non skid stuff on the bottom as she will be walking before we know it. Here are the patterns I used in case anyone is interested. Hat: https://www.fleecefun.com/baby-hat-with-chin-strap-free-pattern.html Booties: http://dorothy-comewhatmayandloveit.blogspot.com/2010/01/bootie-tutorial.html Mittens: (not made yet) https://www.makeit-loveit.com/fleece-mittens For the Hat and the Booties, you need to print out the pattern.

    Quidditch cross stitch pillow - COMPLETE

    I FINALLY learned to use a sewing machine and made the Quidditch cross stitch piece I made into a pillow. Well, I made two - one for a friend and one for me since I really liked the cross stitch design. Stages of almost finished: I learned to do a slip stitch (Or am learning as I see) to hide the stitches when closing the pillow. Completed pillow: I'm currently working on finishing the second one! The first one is all ready to be shipped to my friend! The pillows aren't as "perfect" as I wanted, but I'm happy with it. This project involved a lot of screw ups and undoing stitches.
  3. I've homeschooled for the last seven years and have worked full-time as long as I can remember. My youngest son went into public school in August. I'm working a little less this winter because I'm going through a series of surgeries, so I need a lighter workload. That means I suddenly have free time. Not necessarily a lot -- but enough that I feel a little lost. I will eventually volunteer a bit at my son's school, but I can't really commit to anything until my surgeries are finished. So until then, I've turned into a crafting fool. Current projects? I'm crocheting a cocoon shrug (and maybe two if I like the way this one turns out because I can never have enough cozy things in the winter) for me. I'm also crocheting a set of guinea pigs (to match my youngest son's actual guinea pigs) for a Christmas present for him. He is piggy OBSESSED. I am hoping to finish the inside of a dollhouse I started working on last summer (2015 not 2016). I am also coloring like a maniac thanks to not one but TWO incredible deals I got on Lolliz gel pens, which happen to be a special favorite of mine (plus I just got Johanna Basford'sMagical Jungle, so, you know) . And I owe my middle son a knitted scarf, which is about the only thing I can actually knit because I am not terribly knitting adept. Oh, and sewing! Well, this is more a chore I need to do. I have to hem up some jeans for my sons, who all have skinny waists and ridiculously long inseams. Any more suggestions on how to fill my time? Something tells me that if I can find enough new crafts to do, I can still find ways to NOT have to do housework. This is my plan ...

    Making curtains?

    Has anyone ever made curtains? Is it harder than it looks, for a basic square/rectangular curtain with a rod pocket or grommets? We've been window-shopping for curtains, and for the price and color choices, I'm tempted to buy fabric and make my own. I have a sewing machine (mid-80s-ish White model, nothing spectacular), I can sew a fairly straight line, and I've done a couple of small sewing projects. How crazy am I?

    1st time project

    i bought some fabric to make a fancy dress for my kidlets carneval at playschool. i havent done any sewing since sewing class(made a pillow cover ) in y 8 at school xD I am going to do a hooded scarf and hangy thing for a kylo ren costume.
  6. My current plans are bowl cozies and casserole carries for my inlaws and the gift exchange at work. I'm also going to make two small quilts, maybe quillows, for the "new" grandkids. Oh and I'll make at least a lap size quilt for my girlfriend whose name I drew.

    Crafts

    Since I have crafts in the title, I decided I would share some of the stuff I have made semi-recently. I uploaded a bunch of pictures to my album, so if you are interested you can view them there. It's mostly crocheted items that I made for my vet when she was pregnant. She was having a girl and I may or may not have gotten a little carried away with making stuff for her (I think I did something like 75 items lol) I also have included a few of my (rudimentary) sewing projects. I dream of being a sewer someday, but much like drawing it do it sporadically, so never gain much proficiency

    Sew many machines

    I am getting ready to buy what will probably be the last sewing machine I will ever own and it has been a gut wrenching decision. There are machines that cost as much as a good used car (upwards of 10,000 dollars) and there are cheap plastic pieces of crap for a couple of hundred. There are also many, many in-between. So I started my search on the internet. First piece of advice that made sense to me…determine what type of sewing I would be using the machine for. Now on the surface that sounds like good advice and it is good advice but it required me to get honest with myself. How's that you might ask. Well, my knee jerk response to that question is I want to do it all. I want to be able to do beautiful embroidery, I want to be able to sew every type of material from sheer to canvas, leather, and denim. I want to do it all! But the question for me is…will I really actually do it. Honestly, no I won't. I'm good enough with hand embroidery that anything I want to embroider, I can do without the aid of a machine. What I do want is a machine that can sew a wide range of fabrics so that's what I focused on. When seeking advice I found that most folks I sought out were brand loyal sometimes to a fault. "Oh, brand X won't handle canvas or leather but I love this brand so much you should modify your wants and buy this brand." One brand loyal person told me that no household machine can handle the really heavy stuff and if I really want to sew those materials I should get a used commercial machine (after buying the brand they loved for every thing else). I can only buy one machine so I kept looking. And after looking high and low and reading every review out there…I found the one. And I am in love. I can't buy it until after the first of the year. I'm counting the days until it's mine, all mine. I go to the makers website everyday to look longingly at it. I watch the videos and blow kisses cooing that it will get to come home with me soon. Yes I know I'm no better than those other dewy eyed fools I spoke of I guess it is like finding a life mate when the right one comes along you just know in your heart of hearts. Hang in there Hazel (she has a name all ready) we'll be together.

    Recycling an old tablecloth

    So, my poor old white damask tablecloth has tea stains that just won't come out and it's seen its last Thanksgiving. Does anybody have any ideas for things I can do with it (besides take it to the thrift store?) The smooth finish makes it unsuitable to use as a cleaning rag and I already have more throw pillows than I can use (plus it wouldn't go with my transitional decor.) Any ideas?

    Any other sewers?

    What all do you make? Right now I'm mostly making historical costumes. I really like Victorian and Edwardian fashions so most of my costumes reflect that. The doll clothes I make are all over the place period fashion wise and I most often make them out of scraps.
  11. Ok, I am about to attempt my first item of clothing that will not be a costume. I've made Civil War ballgowns, colonial dresses, and random other things for Halloween, and they all looked pretty good I thought, but this one is making me worried if I mess up because I won't have the excuse "It's a costume." Plus it's a satiny material unlike what I've used before. So, any encouragement or advice? Thanks! Pattern: Simplicity 1802 http://www.simplicity.com/p-7501-misses ... ction.aspx (Either A or B, the event is in November) Fabric: http://www.joann.com/simply-silky-print ... 00831.html P.S. I am undecided about adding black piping to the bodice. Any thoughts one way or the other would also be appreciated. Thanks again!

    Pressing organza

    I cannot believe I was so stupid as to buy a ton of it to make new sheers for my dining room, but I did. I washed it and then attempted to press it with a cool iron and it didn't work. I then attempted a pressing cloth with a relatively warm iron, again no luck. So does anyone have any idea how I'm supposed to press this fabric? I'm terrified of melting it as it was pricey but I've gotta get it somewhat wrinkle free before this faux seamstress will have any chance of making the sheers. Oh and I bought this at Hobby Lobby. I freaking hate HL but JoAnn was wiped out of everything. I never knew sewing was still so popular. I really wish I'd paid attention and/or not smoked pot before my sewing semester of Home Ec. I also need a good basic sewing book. Anyone have recommendations?

    Costume making

    I love to make costumes (although I am not very good at it.) This is my youngest son performing as John Brown. I made the beard.
  14. Ahoy, fellow quilters! Do come in, we have a fresh pot of coffee and some chocolate chip cookies. I can't really call myself a quilter with a capital A, but I started several quilts, have finished some of them, and am epically stuck on a ginormous queen-sized log cabin that took me two days to baste but needs quilting. On to my question: my old hand-me-down Kenmore is not doing too well. The bobbin tension is all over the place and I would like a newer machine. Which good basic models can you recommend that come with a walking foot and can handle larger quilts besides basic sewing projects? No fancy embroidery or a gazillion stitches required.
