Sorry all, I have had sick kiddos all week and haven't got the pattern for the clothes quite finished. Actually I had but left parts out so I want to fix it. I wont be around for a few days but will have everything up and ready to go next week. Sorry about the inconvenience this may cause.
Here is some cute Mason Jar inspiration from the party though.
I am so excited to finally be sharing the Space Trio with you all! Although this will be available to you all for free for a few weeks, I will be selling it after that, so make sure to grab it free while you can! This has been alot of work but I wanted to offer it to all my readers and everyone who voted for free. So make sure you print or save yourself a copy.
Today is only the first of three tutorials so make sure to follow along the rest of the week to get the remaining tutorials.
First tutorial is for the Felt Dolls.
You will need to download and print the Pattern . Download the Tutorialit is very picture heavy though so I wouldn't print I would just download and view it on my computer unless you want to use alot of ink then go ahead and print it out.
Let me know if you run into any problems. While the tutorial is for sewing by hand, I have also made these with the sewing machine, you just have to be extra careful and sew slowly on the small pieces.
I know some of your a anxiously awaiting the tutorial for my Space Trio Set and I wanted to let you know that starting Monday I will start on the tutorials for it, so get your felt ready to go! Other items you will need to complete the set are a foam board and a 2 liter soda bottle. I'm so excited!!!!
Yesterday I share girl sewing tutorials and today I have rounded up some little guy sewing projects I would like to try.
I have been in a sewing mood lately. I finally got to sew a little last night and started making a peasant top for Tae. It's turning out cute I just used a old sheet to try on for the first time to make sure I had everything right. I'm using a tutorial from Indie Tutes.
Suitable fabric for singed flowers. (I used Family Dollar's sheet set and only used part of the pillowcase).
Doilies (I got mine at Dollar Tree).
I printed out my template on card stock then drew them on the pillowcase. You will need two triangles for each bunting triangle.
Pin a piece of doily to one of the triangles and cut off the excess to use on the other bunting pieces.
sew along the outer edge of the doily. (If you click on the picture you can see this better).
Place the second piece on top of the doily side and sew around the two edges leaving the top unsewn. Trim the bottom point off.
Turn the piece so the right side is facing, us a pin if needed to carefully pull out the corner. Sew along both sides again leaving the top.
I made four singed flower pieces, they were all from the same size circle I just cut slits in two of them.
Layer the pieces together and place them on top of the bunting piece and stitch the middle with a small stitch.
Turn the piece the right way and if needed use a pin to bring out the pointed section. Sew around the two edges again.
After you have made as many bunting pieces as you would like it is time to do the top edge. Lay out all your bunting pieces in a row with edges of the top touching. Measure how long it is across. You will need a piece of fabric that is 5" Tall by whatever width you need to go across the bunting plus 2" for folding.
Turn the sides under 1/2" then another 1/2 inch and sew.
Fold the top and bottom the same way and press. Then fold the piece in half and press.
Add the bunting piece sandwiched in between the top and bottom folds and sew across I did two seams. I have used contrasting thread for the tutorial it looks much better with matching thread.
Add a rope or string and string it across a wall or hang it as a valance or use it outside.
This space set was so much fun and so much work. My kids absolutely love it.
Here is the craft that got me voted off. I will post a tutorial for it hopefully tomorrow.
Summer has been crazy, I haven't posted too much. We have been busy playing with the kids and having fun. I hope to get back to posting more tutorials soon. I have so many ideas brewing (if they turn out).
