1  Re: Mug Rug Swap Rd 6 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by alwaysinmyroom on: October 24, 2014 06:28:59 AM
The mug rugs in this gallery are just wonderful!  I looked through it as I was having coffee, using a mug rug I received in the very first mug rug swap!  Time to get more!  Next round, maybe!

I think each one is so creative and cute!

I flipped the penguin because it is so cute...and I did not want to strain my neck looking at it! Grin

I received the most adorable little Ninnis from lilbandade!!!  I know I was squealing when I opened the package because my poor dog came running up from the basement! Grin

Even the backs are cute!

I can't stand the little jeans made from the pant bottom of a real pair of jeans!

And take a look at the tiny bones in the hand and feet!

I also got a crochet hat in a stitch that I do not yet know how to do (crocodile stitch?)....do I look happy? YES!  THANKS SO MUCH!

I have been busy finishing up my quilt blocks for a swap:

So far in 2014, I have done 81 quilt blocks....Grin.

As I was cleaning out my mom's things, I found a bag of old brush curlers.  I was just going to throw them out,but I started pulling them apart and wondered what I could do with them.  Most of the nylon netting was disintegrating, but the brushes inside were good...so, here is what I did...

Old brush curlers:

Just the brush:

Ta-da!  A little cutting, some alcohol ink...and I have tiny trees!  I can use them for winter decorations, shrines, etc.  I am going to glitter some of them and put fake snow on others...there is a penny for size reference.

When I make a project, I will remind people that I made those little trees from junk! Grin

Going to a friend's house tomorrow so I thought I would whip up something to take...I figured a few dozen little fabric pumpkins should do the trick! Grin


All of the fabrics were free--they were given to me by a friend.  I am determined not to make them a part of my stash, so I will be making more of these next week.

I followed a tutorial that phizzychick posted...

Nice job!  I have been reminded by my husband that he has several pairs of jeans that need to be repaired.  I am going to do a few using Japanese Boro techniques, like this:

You are going to have such a blast crafting for the little ones!

Old t-shirts and knit shirts are great for baby leggings! They require so little fabric when they are tiny!

I managed to get my fingerless mitts done for the Halloween season!!!  Of course, I will wear them all winter because I love stripes things!

Don't they look fun with my Halloween nails? Grin

9  Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 5 (signups end 10/6, send by 11/3) in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by alwaysinmyroom on: October 06, 2014 04:13:10 PM
ok--this one was whipped out fast...but the actual ones will be a lot nicer, I promise!  And, I will do two sizes...this one is about 3x3.  I prefer tiny ornaments, so I can also do this one 2x2.   These are NOT embroidered.  They are stamped with fabric ink on white cotton.

I will seal the burlap and make sure the fabric edges are sealed on the actual ones, which I am working on tonight.  I think I will also add a bell to the bow.

That is why I only do this a few times a year...as soon as I get enough different patterns for a fairly decent quilt, I am giving it up! Grin
