Vacuum Design

A year or so ago, a grandmother asked me if I could make a vacuum design applique for her grandson.  He was obsessed with vacuum cleaners.

She wanted to applique a vacuum on a blanket for him.  So I made her this...

Ever since, it's been one of my favorites.  A couple of times a year, someone will buy it-- and it's always for a little boy.  Thinking of all these little boys and their vacuum cleaners always makes me smile.

I have the grown up version-- he's still willing to vacuum. :-)

Altering Side Wrinkles Out of a Skirt

There is Talbot's Outlet dangerously near my home. It's a true outlet with things from stores that have been marked down. (Not an outlet where things are made just for the outlet.) I frequently find things there for GREAT deals! Like a $108 skirt marked at $11.
It was too long (to the floor) and the hips were wrinkly.
The skirt was straight, so a simple hem job took care of the length. It wasn't lined, so this was pretty straight forward. But what to do about the hips?
Turns out a small seam bringing in the sides by 1/4" each was all that was needed.

I took a shot with one side done so you can see the difference.   See how much smoother the fixed side hangs?
I didn't even have to rip out the old seam first.  Just gently curve the seam from the waist to slightly inward at the hips.

You can see the adjustment here- just a slightly inward seam at the hips.  Fixed it right up.  Now, only 600 more mending projects to go! :-)

Mardi Gras Time! Applique embroidery designs

March 8th is Mardi Gras time!  (2011)

 I love this time of year, and it brings back some fun memories of living in New Orleans as a child. 
Dad used to have a ladder, with a little seat on top we'd bring to parades.  I'd sit up on the seat, yelling "Throw me sumthin Mista!"
Although Mardi Gras parades aren't really thought of as "innocent"... we always made it a family affair. 

We would dance in the streets with the bands, chase beads and doubloons.  Mom always wanted us to soak up the culture.  I remember King Cakes in Elementary school, and at Blue Birds.

To celebrate this time, here's two sweet Mardi Gras designs.  Stitch one up just for fun. In true cajun fashion, I've added some lagniappe. (Type in code lagniappe for an extra $1 off when you order.)

A new Sewer Sewist in the House

Kat, who is now 7, got a sewing machine for Christmas. The machine she got is the Janome Mini.

There are mixed reviews on this machine, but do not mention this to Kat- she loves it. Mom's a fan too. It's easy to thread and wind bobbins (which she is doing all on her own) and the speed is a little slower than my Janome 10001, which is a little safer, too.

She's ready to move on to some bigger projects, so we'll be making some beginner items in the coming months. If you have a new sewer/sewist in your home, please sew along! I'd love to see what you (or your little people) are making.

Our first project is going to be a pillow case. We'll start this week.

Mom, on the other hand, is sewing up some cheer tops. I'm going to try to get out a tutorial on easy ways to get fabric inset panels for costuming-- so hopefully there will be something for everyone.

You Rock My Heart Valentine Applique embroidery design


I love Valentine's Day-- and not just for the chocolate!

I love the look on the girls faces as they open their little cards. I love that whole childhood anticipation.... and yes, I'm a sucker for chocolate.


Here's a new design you could use for a boy's shirt too. Just make the colors a little more masculine, and it could be a great addition.

Aaaahhhh.. Christmas!


It's hard to imagine it's almost time to pack up the tree. We had a great holiday with Kevin's folks and my mom coming in (separately) for a few days each.

I managed to get almost all the sewing done in time to get it under the tree-- and one of the girls (Kat) is enjoying her own sewing machine this year, thanks to Santa.


She got a little Janome Mini, and she has been sewing up a storm. This machine has mixed reviews. There's some great reviews of it on patternreview.com. Kat is only 6, turning 7- and it's a super machine for her. It really sews, winds bobbins and has some adjustments in stitch length.
One of her first projects was a drawstring bag- an easy beginning project if you are a new sewer yourself. I'll try to get the tutorial up later today.


Time to start gearing up for Valentine's Day :) I have some new designs up, in case you have the sewing bug. I'm also going to try my hand at pettiskirts again, after receiving two GLORIOUS fluffy ones for the girls at Christmas.

I've been working on some shirts and other things for the Plano Williams High School Cheyannes. One of the problems with creating drill team spirit wear, is the lack of drill team designs readily available.

Tiny Tiger Toes (Geaux Tigers!)

If there's one thing I'm learning, it's never underestimate what people are looking for...




A while back I had digitized some tiny pawprints for Plano Senior High (Wildcats) ribbon. WHo knew others would be looking?



These tiny pawprints look great walking up a ribbon, accenting a bib, or on the bottom of a tiny shoe!

Each pawprint measures only .5" across, and the design also comes with a single.

Tutorial - Recycling Hawaiian Pants, Repurposing clothes




Hmmm... I wasn't really sure what to call this one.

I bought a pair of Hawaiian pants - pretty wild Hawaiian pants. Let's just say a print that large doesn't look great on a derriere this wide-- capeesh? Well skinny pants really loved them. So...1. Remove the waistband. I did this with a seam ripper.
2. Take out the crotch seam first. I was able to cut mine out, since the size difference was fairly large.
3. Remove the inner leg seam. (Why inner? - In this case it was out of a desire to not have to resew the zipper!)
4. Lay out the legs, and draw a new crotch seam. (I used a current pair of pants to estimate this.)
You can see where her crotch seam doesn't even make it past the leg on the original leg!

5. Cut straight down from crotch seam, narrowing legs. (We can't have clown pants!)

6. Resew the inner leg seam. Turn one leg inside out. Put the right side out leg INSIDE the inside out leg, then sew the crotch seam.

7. I add to resew a new button hole, but if you use the correct end of your waistband, you wouldn't even have to do that!)
8. Rehem.
This post will have additional pics, as soon as I can get her in 'em.

You say Cheyenne, and I say Chey-Annes!

I've been working with the Chey-Anne booster club on some spirit wear for the Chey-Annes parents, and in particular their logo. The Chey-Annes are the high kicking award winning drill team for Williams High School in Plano Texas.
It's Plano's oldest high school so they've had their logo a while. Last year, their spirit shirts showed the traditional logo of the Chey-Anne puffy sleeve girl.
The puffy shirt figure has been around for a while as a silhouette, so I wanted to see if we could leave the outline, but make her uniform look more like the girls current uniforms, shown here:













Never mess with tradition, right? So, treading lightly... I came up with the following:

It's a subtle change, but it shows the new gauntlets, while keeping the shape and similar outline.

They are off for approval, so we'll see. Too far?
Let me know what you think!

Whimsical Sleeping Eye Mask Tutorial

Want to know how to make a simple spa mask? I got a request for making an eye mask for, well, the BEST BOYFRIEND EVER. Now, before my poor dh and all my friends have a heart attack, you should know it's not my bf.

But with an introduction like that, how can a girl help but smile???

Seems she's up late studying and his smaller eyemask isn't blocking enough light. Enter request. One green diagonal striped fabric eye mask with elastic back and "I am sleeping" in a specific font. I love bizarre requests. They bring out the doldrums and force the creative back in gear.

Now- part 1: bigger than normal for better coverage. The first step here was to draw a mask on a sheet of paper.

Why just draw 1/2? To make sure the sides are even, of course! Next, this shape is cut out, adjusted, redrawn, adjusted redrawn (repeat say 40 times....) then cut the final design out a second time, but with seam allowance around it.


You should also cut this shape of an inner lining fabric (I used a cotton interlock which is super soft) and an interior fabric (this should ideally be satin, microfiber, or in this case- a super soft bamboo terry in black. Make a sandwich of the fabrics like this:

First layer is the lining fabric, then the front fabric, pretty side up. Lastly the backing fabric, pretty side down.
Part 2: Measure your head with 1 1/2 inch elastic. As you sew, you'll want to attach the elastic as a layer of the sandwich, betweem the front and back layer.

Part 3: Stitch / Serge. Leave a 2 inch hole opening in the top for turning.

Part 4: Turn and press. Topstitch from the outside, catching edges inside.

Aaaahhhh... a good night's rest. From a seriously cute, sweet, and possibly THE BEST EVER girlfriend.

Think I'll make some up for the next slumber party... or better yet, do you feel an "in-the-hoop" project coming???

Monday morning mending- Tutorial on v-neck dress alteration

Okay, it's really Sunday. ... too bad.
I have a couple of dresses (poly/spandex ) from one of the big box warehouse stores. I really like them, but they never fit quite right. I've lived with them because they have no separate sleeve pieces, so taking them up at the shoulder meant the arm hole would get smaller-- and area where honestly I need MORE room.
Then it occured to me, (ta da! ) that I didn't have to keep the line of the dress exactly the same. I could alter the neckline shape and take height out of the shoulder, without sacrificing arm space.
In case you have a similar dress-- this might help someone.
Here's the dress in question: Notice that the top is a little loose, caused by being to short!

Here's the dress laying flat.

The idea was to take up the neckline, without altering the armhole. The red line indicates the alteration. This leaves all the arm space, while helping the front and back fit better.


Before makeing the new seam, I needed to remove the "finished" hem from the arm and neck opening, where the new seam would meet. I did this using a needle, then a seam ripper. The edges were just a coverstitch with folded under and stitched, I did not remove the coverstitching.


Now, I took more fabric from the front than the back. After playing around with different pinnings, this provided the best option.












Then I took the seam up on each side. My serger happens to be under the weather, so I used a stretch zig zag, trimmed that close, and did another row of stretch straigh stitching. Then I restitched the hem edge back using brown top thread.
A quick, needed improvement which makes the dress a better wear for church and work.

Girls Rule - ?





Someone was looking for this design, so I digitized it as pre-work. Hmmm... wonder what it's going on???

Tutorial - Making a drawstring backpack

Aaahh... camp time. An embroidering Mommy's dream time. (Honestly, EVERYTHING nees a name? How can I beat that!)

Off to camp she goes tomorrow- for the first time. They have to bring a little drawstring bag to carry their water bottle/sunscreen/etc around with them, so I whipped these up for her and her friends.
I'm going to give dimensions, but I made these for girls under 7. You might want to make yours a wee bit bigger if it is for someone larger.


First, you'll need a piece of fabric, in a rectangle shape. I used a piece of Michael Miller Dumb Dot pink, measuring 14" tall by 22" wide. Fold this in half horizontally, and work on one side first.
If you want to put the name on it, do that first.


Then working just on one half, make two button holes 1.5 inches down from the top. Make these close to the edges of the 1/2- as they will be on the top edges of the finished bag.

Next, finish the raw top edge. You can either turn it under and stitch it, or run it through your serger. This will not show, it's just to make the bag wear better.









Now. fold the bag in half, right sides together, and serge or seam and finish the edge.



Now you have a tube of fabric. Turn under 1 inch of the fabric (with your finished edge turned underneath.) This will make a casing for the drawstring that has a button hole on each side. Stitch the casing close to the edge. Make sure you catch the turned under fabric, and that your button hole is in the casing, not below it.

Cut two small squares of interfacing and fabric, and place these in the bottom corners. This will reinforce the corners and make them stronger for the grommets.


You can tack them down with stitches, or a tiny bit of fabric glue to hold them in place.

Stitch the bottom seam, catching the squares of fabric. Then, turn your bag inside out.
You now have a small pillowcase!

On the bottom corners, put in grommets.
Now, you're ready to add the straps! The straps can be made of anything, but I prefer multicorded braid. You will need two pieces, each twice the height of the bag + the twice the width of the bag. (For these bags, it takes 2 pieces, 1.5 yards each.)

Starting on the right side of the bag, feed the cord through the button hole, and back out the same button hole after going around the casing. There is a button hole on the other side, but do not go out that button hole. The string should start and end on the same side.

Repeat this with the other side. This means when you are finished, there will be two drawstrings at the top, ending on opposite sides.

Even out the cord, and pull both ends through the grommet at the bottom and tie a knot. (The knot should be on the pretty, embroidered side of the bag.) Do this on both sides.

That's it! Super simple!
Wouldn't those be a cute little take home gift from a slumber party?
