jadedrabbit added the project Revised Red Winter Coat
A couple of winters ago I made my mom a red coat from Burda Magazine 11/2003. I changed a couple of things about the pattern, like the depth of the collar and the trim down the sleeves.

Every little girl needs a zany coloured sleeping bag to go to sleepovers, right? Well my niece now has one and a matching pillow. I found the turquoise coloured fabric in a local fabric store and h…

Some years ago I had a bag from the Gap and used it till it fell apart. So once it no longer was of any use I took it apart and copied the pattern. Making a few changes along the way to the purse I…

jadedrabbit commented on the forum topic How do you store your stash?
I keep my fabrics in my bedroom closet. At the moment there’s more fabric than clothing. I also have shelves in my sewing nook with fabric folded neatly. Then there are the bins under my bed with f…

I have some black rubber backed nylon gortex(I think that’s the correct spelling) to make one from. I just need to figure what sort of style to make. I have several coat patterns drafted, just can’…

jadedrabbit commented on the project Blue/Brown Reversible Placemats
It’s not really a fabric section. More like a fat quarter rack. The fabric for these mats was a packet of one meter of each fabric = 2m/pkg. The brown around the edges was a fat quarter.
jadedrabbit added the project Blue/Brown Reversible Placemats
Found this pretty fabric at Walmart’s quilting section. Flowers on one side and the modern stripe on the other. So if one side gets stained they can be flipped over to the other. The table that the…

This hoodie is made from my own pattern that I drafted. The fabric is a poly-cotton blend. Very soft and snuggly warm. I have used this pattern to make several different sweat shirts.

A long time ago when I just started seriously sewing I thought that I would make a quilt. This was when I really loved the colour blue. That was more that 12 years ago. Got as far as I could with…

jadedrabbit added the project Sister-in-law's Beach bag
This a fairly simple beach made from the same japanese pattern book as I used for the bag for my niece. The only difficult part was trying to sew such heavy canvas on my Bernina Aurora Machine. B…
jadedrabbit added the project Just another grey sweatshirt
I used an over-sized t-shirt pattern (that I drafted) with an extended shoulder to design this sweatshirt. Nothing fancy, just a comfy piece of clothing to wear on the weekends.
jadedrabbit added the project B-day present for my niece
Just a simple bag made from nylon and cotton. My niece is at that age when toys are still fun but big girl stuff seem all the better. The bag is about 17″ × 20″ (the flap can fold over the top or…

jadedrabbit commented on the project Braided Pink Dress
Sweeet dress. Makes think I should dig out some of my pieces from sewing projects past.
jadedrabbit commented on the project Organic Origami Squares
I absolutely love this necklace. Not just saying that cause I’m a “origami nut”. I saying it because you have cool style and I’m gaga for anything origami. Great work.

jadedrabbit commented on the project Work'n the Midnight Shift!
You have a great figure and the dress suits you very well. Perhaps a couple of long strands of fake pearls would look good too. Fabulous work NessyS.

Thanks very much. My mom just loves this shirt. And of course wants another one. She’ll have to wait a while, I have other things to finish first.

jadedrabbit added the project Mom's Newest Shirt
One thing that I am sure most of you would agree on is that because we sew, people in our live will always ask for us to make them something. My mom is no exception. I don’t mind, that is if I ca…
