1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / floral circle skirt on: June 04, 2009 06:23:31 PM

this is my first skirt (and first zipper)! i rippped up an old forever 21 skirt because i always loved the fit and used some great alexander henry fabric.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my paper tape dress form on: June 04, 2009 02:27:17 PM

i decided to learn how to sew clothes this summer (i'm a quilter) so i thought i could use a dress form. i think i wrapped the tape too tight - i only did 1-2 layers because i couldn't breathe!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / quilts for twin baby girls on: July 28, 2008 04:30:43 PM
the boy's sister had twins and when there are babies, there must be quilts! i loved the quilt in this post, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231810.0, so i stole the pattern. i hope that's ok!

i made this one first with amy butler's midwestern modern. i want to keep it!

i made the second one with the same pattern but i didnt want them to be too matchy-matchy, so i used some different fabric from my stash.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / pleated floral tote on: July 28, 2008 04:20:33 PM
so i'm flying 2000 miles to visit the boy tomorrow. i'm kinda nervous about meeting his parents so i brought a GIFT! i threw this together in a couple hours today. it's the first time i've done pleats and i made it without a pattern. i hope his mommy likes it!

i whipped this up for my best friend's birthday using fabric from amy butler's new line. my blanket stitch isn't perfect but i still think it's pretty cute.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / garnet earrings on: March 23, 2008 05:21:17 PM

i made these at the last minute for a friend's birthday from some garnet and findings in my stash. i haven't made jewelry in like a year. now i want to keep them!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / origami lamp shade on: February 15, 2008 04:24:57 PM
i needed a reading lamp for my dorm room, so i made one!

i used this pattern: http://www.yasutomo.com/project/paperlampshade.htm. i think the dimensions are wrong on the site (i used 14x20).
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / college sweatshirt applique on: January 28, 2008 12:58:35 PM
a semester in, and i still didn't have an mit sweatshirt. all the ones they sell are ugly! so i made my own.


i just realized it's reversed in the picture so it looks like it says tim!
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / amy butler obsession quilts on: January 28, 2008 12:47:27 PM
when i was home for winter break i decided to make a quilt for my dorm bed. i used amy butler charm packs that i got on ebay and i used the extra to make a crib-sized throw. i'm pretty sure the big quilt has every fabric from her lotus line!
