  1. My littlest granddaughter is really into princesses these days and requested these outfits.
  2. Hello, I'm new to this site and look forward to getting answers to my questions and concerns and sharing ideas. Thanks, Sheryl -
  3. Hiya, So while cleaning out some of my crochet stash, I had an idea I thought was totally brilliant. The problem is that I don't know if its completely possible and kind of don't want to try if its not going to work. Anyways, I rediscovered a single motif pattern that I've managed to adapt to be able to crochet it into an endless pattern in nearly any shape, so my next thought is whether I can turn this motif into clothing. I mean this as in does anyone know if it would be possible to crochet pieces of a dress/shirt/skirt pattern from a sewing pattern then sew the edges together with a sewing machine? Keep in mind this would all be done with lace weight crochet thread, so not only will making the pieces be time consuming but hand sewing them would be as well. Which is why I thought my machine sewing idea was brilliant. Does anyone have experience making whole garment with various pieces of crocheted "fabric"? If so any advice?
  4. Hi all! Recently I've been sewing lots of project bags. Fun story, actually, it started with wanting to keep my crochet projects clean from pet hair (or mostly clean) and safe if I wasn't there to watch it. So I put every project in a ziplock bag. This started to get out of hand, and it wasn't very environmentally friendly, as every bag would only last for about one project, two if it was a short one. Occasionally it wouldn't even last the whole project... So when I came across people buying sewn project bags, I figured: ah, I can do that! So I measured my favorite ziplock bag and made the bag to size. I've made quite a few so far, and sold about 10 of them as well. But a new idea has been lingering in my mind for a while, and that is to reuse old and worn clothes to make project bags out of them. I finally got around to it, and made one from my husband's favorite shirt and a pair of worn jeans of his. I absolutely LOVE it, but I feel like I'm looking at my husband when I'm looking at the bag. It's so extremely personal... Which is why I'm definitely keeping this first. (Notice how the fabric isn't even nicely ironed? Just the way he wears his shirts...) Anyway, it is SO personal, that now I'm reluctant to make more of these bags, even though they are so unique and special, and even though I love that I can pretty much recycle every bit of his old clothes. I could never use that many bags, so I'd definitely make these for sale, but I'm wondering if other people will even want project bags out of clothes worn by strangers... Now, I also have a couple of shirts to combine with new fabrics from a thrift store, that turned out too large for my husband. Would it be okay to use those for bags for sale? I'd really like your thoughts on this!
  5. I have a new granddaughter coming in April and I have been having lots of fun sewing clothes for her. I have more pictures, I think I will put them in another post. The next 2 pictures are the same outfit, one is with the jacket and one is without the jacket. I guess I took the 2nd picture with my phone because it is sideways, sorry.
  6. This is second batch of baby clothes I've made for my granddaughter who is due in April. and back with the jacket This little dress was made from a bridesmaids dress worn by the baby's aunt at the Mommy to be's wedding. This was the bridesmaid dress and this is the baby's dress
  7. I am working on a medium-sized amigurumi stuffed animal: Yoshi I don't like how I've sewed his head on. I made the neck too narrow so his head is flopping all over. I want to resew the head so the neck is more supportive, but I've already cut off the tail. Does anyone have any hints as to how I can resew the head on without having the long tail?
  8. I had the elements ready for this dress A YEAR AGO… Few days ago I put them all together and sew the skirt part. So my daughter has a new dress and she likes it! And matching bows…. July 10th UPDATE Here's another one I made for my cousin's daughter - veery similar, but different
  9. I found this cute Got Fabric? fabric and a panel of fun sewing pictures and knew that I had to make a totebag with it for the gift exchange the my sewing guild group has every year.
  10. I've been sew busy working on some outfits for my grandchildren and a couple of little friends. The matching dresses are for the little friends, they spent this week in Disney World and their parents said they received lots of comments about the dresses. The white gown is for the littlest sister's dedication at church next month. The other outfits are for my grandson and granddaughter just because they like Disney soooo much. I don't think I posted the dinosaur/dragon costumes before but I'll apologize now just in case I did, these are what my grandkids wanted for Halloween, and I think they look pretty cute. Dedication gown Sister sets Dusty Crop Hopper Jake and the Neverland Pirates Minnie Mouse Elsa inspired front & back Dinosaur/dragon front views of both and the side view of one but they're the same just different colors. Sorry these are side ways but I don't know how to turn them. (they're the right way on my computer just not here)
  11. My crocheting has been a little slow lately but I've been keeping busy in my sewing room. My grandkids picked out the fabrics and told me what they wanted made with them. Except for the My Little Pony outfit which my granddaughter knew nothing about until it was finished, she was squealing soooooo loud and jumping around when she saw it that I think the neighbors might have heard her. My grandson insisted on putting on the jacket right away, the air conditioner was set at a comfortable 76 degrees but he loves his jackets. Thanks for looking. Sorry for the sideways pictures, I don't know why they are like that and I don't know how to fix it.
  12. So I'm making this little sweater, fallowing the 18mo size in the pattern. I've got all the pieces crocheted for it. But now I'm confused about how I'm suppose to attach them all together, especially the hood piece. Here's what the pattern says; "Fold Hood in half along back seam edge and sew center back seam. Pin shaped edge of Hood to neck opening, beg at center of button or buttonhole bands and matching back seam of Hood to center back neck edge. Sew in Sleeves placing rows above markers along armhole edges of Fronts and Back to form square armholes. Sew side and sleeve seams. Sew buttons to correspond to buttonholes." I'm so confused! Why am i supposed to fold the hood, if I do then it doesn't fit to the back piece evenly. If someone could please explain how to do this in greater detail, that would be awesome! Here's the link to the full pattern: http://www.favecrafts.com/Crochet-for-Kids/Adorable-Toddler-Crochet-Pattern-from-Bernat/ml/1 Edit: Adding photos, hopefully they'll help other people understand this better then I do!
  13. I made these Easter outfits for my grandchildren. My grandson's is not a traditional Easter outfit but it's what he wanted. My granddaughter also picked out the fabric for her outfit. I used Simplicity 3856 for the shirt and simplicity 2907 for the pants. I used Elsa form Maja's Heirloom patterns for the top and Simplicity 2083 for the skirt.
  14. Hi, my name is Mary and I live in Rome Ny…was originally thinking about starting just a crochet group but then got to thinking that maybe it could be a craft group where we would have combined talents in one group…I know that there is an established knitting group and I don’t want to interfere with that group but I would like to at least get some crocheters together…I can host right at my home…I do have a finished basement and we wouldn’t have to find somewhere public…and I am willing to let other crafters use my supplies that I do have and you would be willing to pitch in also….I do have a lot of beading/jewelry materials and 2 sewing machines and I also have some cricut materials…I am thinking that it might be fun to mix it up a little and give each other ideas….what do you think about hosting this type of group…any ideas
  15. My grandmother taught me to crochet a basic chain years ago. Thru the years I have read patterns and taught myself new stitches, etc. I have always enjoyed crocheting, but didn't have a real outlet for my projects. About five years ago a friend talked me into joining a homemakers group thru 4 - h. It has given me a fun way to share my creativity. I was over 50 years old when I entered my first 4-h project. I have just recently started selling some of my projects. Exciting! Thinking about possibly retiring my full time job soon and going full time. Excited to join a group of other crocheters.
  16. These are some sewing projects I finished this week. A Hello Kitty sundress, hat and shorts for my granddaughter. A shirt and pants for my grandson, he loves to play with balls so this fabric was perfect. And a teddy bear for a friend. The bear is made from a suit of a family member who died last year.
  17. So I'm working on making a small purse. I have a few rectangle pieces that I will be sewing together with yarn and a yarn needle. The corners are curling a fair amount, so I want to make sure I block them all. My question is, is it better to... A) Sew all the pieces together, then block the entire thing B) Block all the pieces individually, then sew all the pieces together C) Pin the pieces together, block while pinned, and then sew pieces together. Also, if it makes a difference, I'm using Red Heart Value yarn. So the basic and cheap worsted weight yarn made of acrylic. Its a bit rougher and has a little more of a ridged drape then other nicer but more expensive yarns. And while I'm here asking, if you could also tell me what the best method of blocking to use would be, that would be great! Thank you!

    Easter Wear

    I made these for my grandchildren to wear on Easter. They picked out the fabrics. DGD requested a bow with a heart gem in the middle at the waist of her dress. After the dress was finished she wanted ruffles on the top but I convinced that a ribbon flower would be the perfect embelishment. My DD wanted a small blue plaid for DGS vest but he insisted that he wanted to wear fish for Easter. He already has pants and a shirt that he can wear with the vest. Thanks for looking.
  19. I've been sewing more pillowcases. I finished three today; was sewing all day. I sewed two of the Valentine/Heart pillowcases (only took a picture of the one, and wrapped & packaged it before I thought to take a picture with them both.) I can't stop buying cute fabric.
