1  Swedish Tea Ring, Harvest Party - Thanksgiving - Halloween Party Food in Thanksgiving by I Sew Cute on: October 30, 2015 09:15:45 PM
So every year for Christmas, I make my mother's version of Betty Crocker's Swedish tea ring decorated with red & green cherries & nuts.

It occurred to me that these are so yummy & festive, it's a shame they only get made at Christmas, so I dressed them up in mini mallow pumpkins & candy corn.

I love how they turned out. What do you think?

2  Nyan Cat Applique Shirt for 'Neon' Day at School in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by I Sew Cute on: October 29, 2015 11:09:27 AM
My daughter wanted something different to wear for 'neon' day at school, so I suggested making a Nyan Cat shirt for her. The words were out of my mouth even before thinking of our time & materials limitations, so thankfully I had a bunch of felt left over from other projects & a blank bright pink shirt we'd picked up at Michaels Craft Store.

This is how it turned out:

I knew this was going to be a fun project! I cut out the various pieces from felt & planned how they were going to be put together:

One of our cats was happy to supervise the project:

I sewed the rainbow bands together first, then attached the frosting to the pop tart, next embroidered the mouth & appliqued the eyes & stitched on the head with the front legs tucked under the chin & the rear legs stitched under the pop tart:  

Once it was all together, I stitched around the whole thing... appliqueing it to the shirt:

She loved it & I kind of want to make one for myself too! Cheesy

The only thing I really would like to add is pink felt squares to the cheeks. It was a super fun project.

I received the creepiest-cute bear named Oliver, along with a spooky ghost story from whatthepuck. My kids love Oliver & both wanted to hold him for the photo.

To keep anyone from fighting over him, I declared he will 'live' on our Halloween display window sill so everyone can enjoy & be creeped out by him!  Cheesy

Thank you so much whatthepuck! I'm sorry it took me forever to get photos posted! We really love him & he fits right in with our other tiny Halloween things!

5  Hades from Disney's Hercules Applique Hoop Art by isewcute in Needlework: Completed Projects by I Sew Cute on: July 16, 2015 04:52:45 PM
I love joining the craft swaps here on Craftster because I almost always end up making things I would never think to make otherwise. I made this hoop for the Darker Side of Disney Swap.

Hades happens to be one of my favorite villains ever, so I had so much fun creating this piece. I used various layers of felt, clear thread, & embroidery floss to embroider the details & the words.

My inspiration was this image is from Disney's Wiki:

6  Not my circus...not my monkeys coin purse by isewcute in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: July 16, 2015 04:12:53 PM
Wanted to share with y'all a little purse I made for the 'Quotes, Quotes, Quotes Swap'

I wanted to make something different and unexpected for my partner that included one of her favorite quotes. I was particularly inspired by the quote because my best friend uses it quite often. Smiley
I created a computer file to fit a purse pattern template, then printed it onto printable fabric.
This was the main image for the front:

It was both fun and challenging to make this little purse, as it took me a couple attempts to get it right, and I think it turned out cute!
The inside lining is a blue batik looking cotton with shiny raised metallic stars.

The package I sent for the swap with extra goodies...a Circus book, lollipop, & flying monkey magnet.

I'm so happy to have been part of this swap & to have had Kitttykill as my partner! Smiley

Here is the wonderful & yummy package I received from cadet120433. I think it's awesome we both sent Hades hoops to one another! (Great minds think alike & I'm so glad I had her for a partner!!!)
I adore the design...you made him wicked cute!!! I didn't even know that haunted mansion treats even existed!  Shocked

Thank you cadet120433....you rock!

I received from kittykill!
The photos are from a cell phone, so they aren't the greatest, however I don't think it's going to detract from how much I was spoiled! Now I'm thinking I need to send along a follow up package!  Undecided

There is an awesome stitched Dolly Parton with one of her most awesome quotes, "If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." This is going to have a permanent place of honor in my craft room!

She sent me a sweet tote bag with image & quote from one of my favorite movies..."The Princess Bride".
"Hello! My name is Inigo Montoya! You killed my father! Prepare to die!" I'm going to be using this a lot & taking it wherever I go!!!

And there was also an awesome x-stitched quote paired with an unexpected image of this darling kitten in a teacup...it even looks like one of our rescued feral kittens! Life is hard. After all, it kills you. -Katherine Hepburn
It's going to also have a place of honor in my craft room on permanent display! It rocks!!! Please share it on the needlework board... the rest of craftster needs to see it & I'm sure you have better photos. My sister in law sent them to me as we're currently on a road trip. Wink
I'm over the moon thrilled Pam! Thank you so much!!!

10  The Blue Man Group Fanart Resin Heart Necklace Image made with altered GI Joes in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by I Sew Cute on: May 20, 2015 08:24:10 AM
One of my most dearly remembered live events was going to see the Blue Man Group.

It was more than a show... it was an experience. I had felt such a connection between the performers & the audience. I highly recommend anyone to go check out their show & see it for themself.

Never heard of the Blue Man Group? From wikipedia: Blue Man Group is an award-winning global entertainment company formed in 1991, and best known for its creative stage productions around the world.

A lot of work went into this piece behind the scenes. Wink
I cast one of my original altered artworks in a huge resin heart with glitter, glitter stars, & pigments...but that was the easy part.
The artwork was created first my altering GI Joe Dolls I had purchased at a thrift store. I knew they'd make great Blue Men because I wouldn't have to shave their heads. Cheesy
I painted them blue, and sewed little black outfits for them & then posed them for the photograph. The photograph is digitally layered with other photos I took of glitter & lite bright pegs with the camera out of focus & with a bokeh lens attachment. I upped the saturation to make it super colorful & love how it turned out! I think it captures the feeling I had when seeing the Blue Man Group.

I'm so glad that Craftster has continued to have craft challenges like this that motivates me to create things that otherwise I wouldn't have made time or had the motivation to do.
The next time I see The Blue Man Group...and I would see them again in a heartbeat, I'll definitely be wearing this necklace! Smiley
