Green dress

An attempt at another Butterick pattern.

The sleeve is not the best for cotton fabrics – but I wanted to try and learn to make this sleeve anyways.

The buttons were made of fabric and Girish had to help me with this because it was so hard that a hammer to hit it in place also didn’t help much. It needed sheer strength and force. 😦 Have to find a better option to making fabric buttons. There should be something simpler. But thanks to Girish, it looks wonderful! I also exercised the button hole stitch on my sewing machine.

Happy Vishu 2011

Paal payasam. Was a little weirdo way of doing it in cooker. Boiled the milk and rice together in cooker with a spoon in the cooker to prevent it from boiling and overflowing. Worked somewhat. It tasted good though.

Pink slush

I made this pink top from a Butterick pattern. The size was so off, hence the belt. But I plan to add some elastic around the waist. Still learning how these ready patterns work in terms of size. They seem to be quite off for my size. Maybe when I’m pregnant it might be useful 😉

Here’s a wrap/shawl that I crocheted over a long time now. I loved the flowers – they were a lot of fun to crochet. I got the pattern from JoAnn store when I was walking up their aisles

And here’s the volume of those hangings. 🙂

Obbattu. My first attempt at it. It was awesome. Check out the hoorna as well.

Girish

A very bad attempt at sketching Girish’s picture. I tried to redraw a photograph of Girish. It looks nothing like him. 🙂

Happy Sankranthi. Yummy – the yellu came out very well.

More cushions

Here are cushions I made. I did the outer cover and stuff foam into it, sealed it up.

It doesn’t look too good just yet. It’s waiting for covers. I have some more cushions to make for the complete picture too.

The toughest one

By far my toughest one and I’m not too pleased. 😦 But it’s wearable. 🙂

The material was so difficult to work with. It nearly took me hours to get a few stitches without ripping the fabric. It’s a shiffon top with a lining. Check the pictures out:

The neck (pardon the manicure!):

My lunch bag

This is made of the left over scrap cloth. I added interfacing both black and white inside and it’s kind of water proof. So if something leaks inside, it shouldn’t spill out. I haven’t stress tested it though. :)

bag1

The inner lining is made of satin. There’s a pocket in there too to keep a phone or some money. The bag closes with a velcro on top.

Don’t know why I named it this way.
