That monster calendar is so cool! I love how these characters have taken on a life of their own  Cheesy

I received a hugely spoilerific package from erica_tattoos last night and I am still in awe. Some of you may have seen a sneak peek of her masterpiece and I won't keep you in suspense here. I didn't even know my life was incomplete but I realized that when I saw this...

Shaun of the Dead mega embroidery sampler! And she made up the pattern herself. I cannot even begin to imagine trying to design and then stitch something of this magnitude. (Go figure I had the perfect size frame to slip it into as well).

More detail shots..

I am just agog. It's flipping fantastic.
As if that wasn't enough she also included a few items that she altered with her super painting skills.

A zombie angel. I think my favorite part are the floating eyeballs and brains on the robe. I want a robe like that  Cheesy

She also sent a Day of the Dead style cameo plaque. So clean and cool. It'll look awesome on the wall!

On top of all this greatness, she decided to spoil me with supplies. Now I love to spoil people when I can, but she just takes it to a whole different level....I got 10 lbs of fabric, embroidery floss, whimsies, and beads. Can you say OMG!!!

Here's just the embroidery floss alone. I go through a lot of floss but I think this will keep me for a while  Grin Grin Grin

Thank you so much erica! I know I had to drag you out of semi-retirement to swap with me, and I'm so happy I did. You are awesome and I'm ready to swap with you any time  Wink

6  Ticker Tape Skulls Art Quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by sheepBlue on: September 16, 2014 03:13:02 PM
I shudder to even think to compare myself to the amazing quilters that can be found on craftster. But! I have actually managed to make a little art quilt for erica_tattoos in the IYP that I am super proud of and really really happy with the end result. I heard of ticker tape quilts before but never really thought of them as fabric versions of a mosaic. Once I got that concept, and the fact that you sew each individual piece on top of your base fabric, I was set to go, making up my pattern from scratch and sewing each piece individually as I went. I started with the background, using dark blues, blacks, and grays, and then filled in the skull area with whites and creams. I did a faux binding, just folding up the fabric from the backside of the quilt, and then handmade fringe with seed beads and polyclay skull beads I made myself.

The whole thing is roughly 20 x 30 inches I think.

I had a lot of fun making this and there will definitely be more in the future  Smiley

I almost forgot to mention something I'm pretty proud of myself for accomplishing! This is 95% made with supplies I already had on hand. The only thing I had to buy was the black fabric for the base on the front which I got at my local thrift store for 50 cents! For the "batting" I used some leftover fleece fabric which wasn't even big enough so I had to sew two strips together. Talk about getting thrifty with it  Cheesy

I've been quietly crafting in my little corner, it's so hard to keep up with all you guys! I'm loving all the new projects, especially the quilts. I've never been great at quilts when I try to make them. Somehow I manage to get fabric wrinkled or whatnot and end up with bumps and lumps where it should all be smooth. But I discovered ticker tape quilts! I think it's just up my alley. I made this for the IYP for erica_tattoos. I love how it turned out! This is just about 30 x 20 or so I think.

I even made fringe for it from scratch complete with polyclay skull beads.

Another fun shot

I promise there will be more of these  Cheesy It was a lot of fun to make and a great way to use up scraps!

And I also made an eyeball bag. It's rather hard to take a picture of an eyeball, go figure.

the badger is very cute!

I was taking a bunch of photos off my camera and found a few twinchies that I forgot to share. Just a bit of silliness.

I was trying to recreate a nautilus here...not sure how successful it was, but I do love the texture.

And a weird Sasquatch creature that had a run in with some arrows...the background is a bit of faux skeleton leaf, it's rather crumbly if you mess with it too much.

Great stuff everyone!

I have a little photodump

Some early xmas gifts - a little Christmasy hat for my niece - she'll be 6 months old at Christmas time so the hat is probably going to be on the bigger side, but it should be good for another xmas I think...

And a sweet doily vest - pretty easy to make - I based it off this pattern with some minor changes.

Another sewing tutorial I tackled - simple business card wallets - a great little thing to use up fabric scraps. I think it would make a great stocking stuffer too. I'd use it for throwing my ID, credit card, etc into as well.
