1  Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R2- Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: August 21, 2014 11:48:50 AM
Okay, while I'm still not totally caught up, I have this short chunk of time between events, so I figured I'd pop on here and comment on the patches I've missed!

cabaute, I love those patches from goatgodess! I agree, her stitching is super neat! And, the tiny details on the patchwork pieces just bowl me over. I don't know if I could cut such small pieces so well!


Watsonc7, I was a little afraid to try making Arrested Development patches since I've never seen the show, but I like how cabute interpreted them, especially the blue one Smiley


goatgoddess, I love the Spock patch, but the Wookie patch is my favorite! And, how can your husband not know who Spock is?


smileyyogini, you sent a great set of patches to stillatthetop! I like the tree one (I love how it extends into the edge of the patch), and I like the tree/peace sign fabric patch one, too! On the third, I like how you stitched around each peace sign. Happy little patches...


GoldenSunshine, I love the patches you got from noodle-bug! I like the patchwork patch, and that owl is just too cute! But, I really love the simplicity of the water patch. And, the set you got from milkeway is equally fabulous! Another nice variety of techniques, too (I need to start a list). Smiling ice cream? Love it! And those little flowerpots are adorable!


Sharalee, that Raggedy Ann patch takes me back to childhood- I loved my Raggedy Ann doll, and I love that Craftsunderground made it round. Perfect. The matroyshka doll patch is great too, and I love the addition of the beads/French knots.


madcrafter, the Hobbit door is amazing (Craftsunderground, such great uses of a round patch!). The French knots make the perfect little flowers! I love the postcard/crown one as well. I love the collage look of the patch.


DaphadillyArt,you were spoiled by milkeway! I love the two text-based pacthes and can't believe those lestters are felt (I think) on the first one (so neatly cut!!)! The others are great, too, especially the little fox.


quaggy, great set of animal patches. I love them all, but I think that the cow one is my favorite. For some reason, photos (and realistic images) of cows just crack me up Smiley


Inselaeffchen, your patches from madcrafter are stunning (Lois, it seems as though you had nothing to worry about!)! The seahorse patch just blows me away, but I love the details on the jellyfish patch, too. I also really like the patches you sent to her. The strawberry is very cute and the purple one has a very haunting quality about it (but in a good way)!


noodle-bug, the minion patch from GoldenSunshine is adorable, and I love the cheeriness of the daisy, and the printed one serves to further emphasize my need to try out that technique! And, the set from quaggy is also fabulous- the one with the heart charms is particularly striking!



I definitely need to start a list of techniques that can be used to make patches (and maybe link to examples). Maybe I'll do that at the start of the next round! And, here's the patch that I made for roler in a personal swap (she made me the water molecule patch at the top of the gallery):

Prepare to be jealous...

I got the most fantastic package from Trekky yesterday! If she didn't live so far away, I would drive to her house and hug her, I love it so much (and, I'm not usually a hugger Smiley ).

First, I got a bunch of fabulous extras: Tea (in the most adorable tins!), chocolate, and a bar of tablet (it's like fudge). Plus, a lovely postcard from Scotland (I'm 1/4 Scottish, so I really want to visit someday!).




Next, she sent two Teesha Moore-style science themed patches for my collection.

DNA:



Erlenmeyer flask:




And, finally, A KNITTED FROG DISSECTION!!



Yes, as much as I love frogs, this has been an item I have coveted since I first laid eyes on one. But, I can't knit, and it just wouldn't look good in crochet. I am going to pick up a shadowbox and then I am going to proudly display it on the wall behind my desk.

Seriously... like a kid at Christmas when I opened that frog up. Love, love, love!

Thank you so much Trekky!

I received a fantastic package from Calabaza yesterday! We also agreed to swap extras Smiley

First, the group shot:



The official items are: the small zipper pouch (small item), the TM patch (the medium and the card combined- the card was pinned to the back, and the patch took way longer than she expected!), and the supply kit for making TM patches (2 FQs, pearl cotton, and polyfil).

The extras are the other two zipper pouches. The pouches are really cool because they A) Stand open on their own, B) Show the life cycle of a sunflower (seed, shoot, flower) and C) They NEST INSIDE EACH OTHER! Wink I love them! And, I think I'm going to use them for carrying around my TM patch supplies Grin

And, here's a close-up shot of the TM patch (81 on the Periodic Table is Thallium):

The stitching is so neat! It looks like she did couching, using clear thread. The stitches on the back are nearly invisible! It's a great addition to my collection!

Thanks so much, Calabaza!

Yesterday, I received two fabulous patches from goatgoddess! She used two very different techniques on them, and I am wowed by them both! And, her edges are so neat and the patches are so nicely rectangular (I need to figure out the secret...).

First, a fish fossil patch! It's hard to see in the photo, but she printed the fish (on perfect, rock-colored fabric) and then embellished it with a little paint to give it some texture.



Next, an erupting volcano! This one is pieced fabric, and I am impressed with the detail!



Excellent additions to my rapidly growing collection of science patches! Thanks so much goatgoddess!

I'm just doing a quick post so I can get this in before the end of the month. When I get back from vacation, I'll have to go back and see what I missed in this last week!

Prompt:  July Battle- Dogs!
Team: textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: Boston Terrier Tote Bag
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: My sister used to have this great little Boston terrier (she rescued him), but she recently gave him to my sister-in-law's parents so he could be the only dog (my sister has 3 other dogs who are much bigger... he was getting trounced on a near daily basis). Near the end of my school year, one of my students was wearing a shirt with this cute Boston Terrier image on it. When I went to the store, I picked up 2 of them (kids size small) in the hopes of making a pillow for my sister and I. But, then I realized that my sister probably wouldn't really appreciate a cute, decorative pillow as much as a cute tote bag for carrying books to the library. I put some fusible interfacing on the back of the graphic, trimmed around the image and zig-zagged it onto the tote bag (ever so slowly so I didn't mess it up). So, here it is! And, only about 3 weeks late for her birthday Smiley

What a great start to the gallery! I absolutely love the gnome (what a cute little face!), and the dove is just lovely. I also received today and have two more fantastic patches to add to my science collection- I'll have enough to start my wall hanging before I know it!

Mine are also from Watsonc7, and came in cute wrapping:


And then I opened them to reveal... a quote by Thomas Edison (the text is stamped so neatly!):



And.... A PLANT CELL!



I can't believe how great my patches are! Thank you Watsonc7!

Prompt:  July- Geography
Team: Textbook
Event: Paperology
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Mountain View note cards
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: These cards don't represent any one particular mountain, but rather mountains, in general. Mountains off in the distance always make me feel calm. I used to hike a lot, and there was nothing I like more than reaching the summit and seeing the view spread out around me. On my way to work in the mornings, I pass a mountain, and it always makes me happy to see it. I used my Silhouette to cut out the trees, and I finally tried out the Silhouette sketch pens, which is how the text and the mountain image was done. I can also use regular pens (once I find my pen holder), so I'm excited by the possibilities!

Prompt:  July- Midnight Opening: The Princess Bride
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: As You Wish t-shirt
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: The Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies! And, this shirt represents one of my favorite lines ("Anybody want a peanut?" wouldn't translate as well on a shirt, and I already have a "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya..." shirt). I found this image of the Dread Pirate Roberts and so I swapped out his name underneath the image with the line from the movie. I especially love it when the grandfather says it to the little boy at the end of the movie.

Prompt:  Team Spirit- Team Fandom: FAN-tastic
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: UFO (this was supposed to be my brother's Christmas present... last year)
Project Name: Avengers T-shirt
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: My brother and I both love movies based on superheros, so it's something we get to do together. Even though I never read many comic books as a kid (or even now), I watched a lot of Saturday morning cartoons and superhero shows were my favorite. I also loved the live action versions (Batman, Wonder Woman, even The Greatest American Hero). Last year, I made this same shirt for myself, and when my brother saw it, he asked me to make him one. I even made it with the same glittery paint (although, he might not like it, so I might have to re-do it), and I fixed the alignment error I made on my shirt on the Avengers logo on the back. I think the front image might be a wee bit crooked (which might drive my brother crazy... so again, I might have to re-do it).

Prompt:  July Mob- World UFO Day
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: Jim's Home Improvement T-shirts
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434631.msg5220751#msg5220751

Brief Description: These were supposed to be ready for Father's Day. My step-dad makes a wreck of his shirts whenever he is working on a project and my mom is forever on him about wrecking his good shirts. So, a couple of years ago, I made him a set of shirts and I gave my mother specific instructions that he was allowed to wreck them. It is now a tradition, but this year, they weren't ready (the design was ready, but the stencil wasn't cut- freezer paper cut with the Silhouette). My mom said that I should just give him the plain shirts because he needed them, but then I knew that they'd be indistinguishable from his "good t-shirts" and he'd just get yelled at for wrecking them. This way, everyone knows that these are his work shirts. The funny thing is that he wears them out and about and people have asked them for a business card so he can do work for them! Every year, the design is different.
