I finally finished this car seat canopy! I spent about 4 maybe 5 hours on this thing cause I had to have the ruffles... After that whole experience... I MUST find a ruffler foot lol... Not perfect but cute and functional :-)

You can see in the picture how the shoulder straps are not cleanly sewn.
It doesn't look that bad... Is it functional?

This is what I was thinking. It doesn't look that bad- and I am still impressed you have been making them for yourself that long! They seem so complicated!

So sorry about the pattern though- that has got to be REALLY frustrating :/

Few sewing questions...

How do YOU sew a zipper to your fabric.. Too many tutorials that tell you this or that. I need basic and easy to understand.

Also tips for sewing PUL? I have some and scared to use it. Fear of ruining :-(

Dying fabric... Would you do this before you sew it up or after? Also best dye?

I think youtube has some zipper tutorials. I try to avoid them. They are not hard to do but I just don't like them on kids clothes. My last zipper was on DD's Halloween Dress. (She was princess peach from Mario world )

People use washable Elmers glue type to secure the pul in place.

I would dye before just in case part of it doesn't take as well. (I have dyed t-shirts or other already made garments.) I have no clue what is good as far a dyes. I bought a few tie-dye kits. I've still got enough that I just use those.


**Yes my sport's bra is functional. I actually might have to take the shoulders up more later. Right now I'm so flipping huge it's hard to tell real fit. I didn't think weaning would hurt so much! I don't know that I can sew much today. It hurts to type. It hurts to move my arms. It hurts just to drink coffee. (Woo Hoo I'm having Caffeine!)

Some people say to use a zipper foot,, some say don't... What works for you? Ill practice on a shoulder bag before making wet bags.

I'd love to see that dress! I used to LOVE the Mario games!

I have about 5-6 yards that I want to due a light blue.. I guess I'll hope other people describe their experiences and read reviews and what not..

You mean to say that weaning hurts too!?! Oh goodness, I thought giving birth would e the end of it :-( I hope gets back to you... I'd be interested in knowing their response time!

Quick pointing question... If I'm using yardage and scraps to make wreaths (not sewn) does that still apply to the game?

Anything made with fabric counts. I use a zipper foot. My computer is at the repair place right now as my hard drive crashed. It has all my pictures. I'll see if I can go steal one from facebook.

Not the best picture of the dress. Oh well. I made the felt mario and luigi hats!

Re: February Use Your Stash Chatter thread

No sewing today. Busy this morning and out all afternoon- I *might* sew something tonight, but I don't know.

I need to make bean bags- I am thinking a set of 3 for all of us in different fabrics.

Other than that, I don't have too many projects left I want to complete! I do have fabric flowers I want to make, but that uses maybe a 1/4 yard per flower with scraps.

What am I going to do the next two weeks????
