Charming Window Pillows Hi! I’m Angela from My Three Sons and I was a mechanical engineer in my life before kids. Really an engineer to the core, I’m all about optimized processes and well-utilized materials. I tried to figure out the best way to make the elusive cathedral window block. So I’ll share some things I found for getting nice points and neat windows. And they are a perfect showcase for your favorite charm pack. We’re going to make two pillows here – most efficient use of materials and all. 1 Just Wing It Charm Pack 1 3/4 Yards Bella Solid Snow 4 Just Wing It Fat Quarters Washable glue stick 2 Square pillow forms – 20″x20″ 2 18-20″ zippers (optional) Pink and Blue Matching thread (optional) Step One: In which you fold fabric and steam it into submission First, from the white yardage cut 5 strips the entire width of the fabric and each 10.5″ wide. Subcut each of those 5 strips into 10.5″ squares so that you end up with a total of 20 pieces. But you do need to make a perfect 9″ square out of poster board.

How to make a draped t-shirt This cowl neck top is quite easy to make. It has only four seams and you can create the pattern yourself. The cowl neck comes from making the neckline of the shirt wider at the front than the back – this extra fabric hangs down creating the drapey neckline. You will need: Measuring tape ⅔ yard stretchy fabric (I used a cotton/lycra jersey) Matching thread Sewing machine Chalk (or pencil and large paper to make a pattern) Pins (optional) The first step in making this top is to measure yourself. 1. Before you start, wash your fabric the way you want to wash the finished top. I like to draw the pattern directly on the fabric with chalk, but if you prefer to make a paper pattern the steps are just the same. Drawing the pattern for the front: Beginning about 4 inches from the top of your fabric and 6 inches from the right side, draw a line 4 inches longer than your shoulder measurement. Mark the center of this line. For a looser shirt, just connect the sides of the hem with the bust marks.

Twist it really tight. Fold it in half and it will twist together on its own. Hot glue the unfolded end under to create the center of the flower. Continue wrapping around until you get to the folded end, gluing periodically. The real deal: It cost less than $0.30 to make one flower. Are you addicted to making fabric flowers yet?

just say no to boring cardigans, part 2 — insatiable need A few weeks ago, I saw a t-shirt refashion in a craft magazine, and was inspired to apply its techniques to a little red sweater that I’ve had forever, but is now tragically too small. Here’s the end result: The t-shirt refashion took two over-sized t-shirts and turned them into a single, shawl-front cardigan. I thought it might be cool to start with a fitted sweater instead of an over-sized shirt, and then the final product would be more fitted, too. Instead of 2 t-shirts, I used this old red sweater and a pair of knit pants in a black and white herringbone pattern. The sweater is way too small for me now, and the pants never quite fit right anyway. All you need for this refashion is a top you’re not wearing, and 2 rectangles of similar fabric…the whole project took me two hours, including pausing to take pictures! step one Cut your sweater down the center front, and then shave off the pointed top of the neckline. I used one pant leg from the herringbone pants.

A tablecloth reborn This shirt began life as a beautiful linen tablecloth belonging to my mother’s stepmother’s mother (my step-great-grandmother?). After many years the stains and tears were too large and numerous to be covered with a strategically placed platter, but it was too special to just throw out. So it became this top. I designed the top around the lace of the tablecloth, keeping as much intact as possible. Since it was a rectangular tablecloth, the lace pattern didn’t point directly at the corner.

Skirt Full of Stars by Shannon Henry, Polymath Design Lab | Polymath's Lab Notebook Imagine a skirt that sparkles with a rainbow of colors as you walk, dance, and twirl. The Skirt Full of Stars is an interactive, illuminated garment using the LilyPad Arduino platform, designed to respond to and accentuate the movements of its wearer. The LilyPad mainboard and power supply are sewn to a purple organza underlayer on a black tulle skirt, with an accelerometer hanging from a ribbon below. The LilyPad translates the movement readings from the accelerometer to colors using tricolor LEDs in the waistband, and sparkling fiber optics are woven through the tulle to disperse the light and create twinkling, color changing stars. Update: Due to tremendous interest at Maker Faire Bay Area 2010, I’m now working to produce a kit to make your own Skirt Full of Stars. Materials needed Tools: Needle-nosed pliersWire cuttersHeat gunFTDI connector for programming the Lilypad boardComputer with Arduino software Hints and tips: Prepare the LEDs: Cut six 1″ lengths of heat shrink tubing. Insulate:

Offbeat Bride | Mini top hat tutorial I thought I'd just document how I made the hats, then with the benefit of my experience you can venture forth and give it a go yourself, knowing I had no idea what I was doing but still managed to do it good enough regardless! Things I used: Construction Paper (though any paper will do, this is just thicker so a bit easier) CompassPencil/pen Tape Patience Spray Adhesive Fabric for hats (I used satin for the white one, and an acetate lining for the coloured ones) Scalpel / Utility Knife / whatever you want to call it Scissors Hot Glue and Hot Glue gun Box board/strawboard/thick cardboard, whatever you want to call it. As long as its a thicker board that is still (just) bendable and will keep its shape. I used a mixture of 1.2mm and 2.4mm thick card. The groundwork: First up, I made a basic pattern out of paper and tape to work from. To do this, I started with the base of the hat. Then cutting along the line just drawn, it will leave the shape of the crown/barrel of the hat! Making the hat:

Taking Proper Measurements If you have just purchased something from my etsy store, you will need to take some of these measurements; I have specified which measurements to take in the listing of the garment. If you have any questions about them at all, please email me, and I can help you out. Most of these you can take yourself, but I suggest getting a friend to help you take them, they will be more accurate that way. There are a few you will need help with anyway. When you are measuring, don't wear bulky clothing, and don't pull the tape so tight that it is restricting, but don't leave any ease in it either. Also measure to the nearest 1/4" 1: WaistMeasure around your waist, the smallest part of the torso. 2: BustTake this measurement with the bra you plan on wearing with the dress/top, or no bra if you do not wear one. 3: HipsUse a string or shoe lace to tie off your hips at the fullest part of your butt. Now take the tape measure and follow the string all the way around. 6. 9: Cup SizeA, B, C, D. . .
