1  Wedding projects in Needlework: Completed Projects by vickyvicvicvic on: June 25, 2009 10:46:46 AM
These are two of the things I made for my partner's sister's wedding.

The ring pillow:

Their initials are K and E (obviously) and the spoon at the bottom is a Welsh Lovespoon (because they are welsh).  The colours were the same as the bridsmaids dresses/the best man's waistcoat.

and the garter:

This was made out of a strip of material (not 100% sure was it was!) with the elastic inside and then the flowers were sewn on.

Sorry for the crappy photos - photography is not my forte!

2  Sampler for a Golden Wedding Anniversary in Needlework: Completed Projects by vickyvicvicvic on: September 04, 2008 05:05:38 AM
I had this pattern kicking around in my stash for years and I decided to finish it a couple of months ago.  That happened to coincide with a family member's Golden Wedding Anniversary so I thought it was quite fortuitous and framed it with (what I think is) a beautiful frame and sent it off.  I haven't heard anything from them yet so I'm hoping they like it hehehe.

I hope you guys like it too!

3  Repurposed Cushion cover. Or how I made a bogging cushion look nice. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by vickyvicvicvic on: July 25, 2008 03:42:29 AM
Hey everybody,

Made this cushion cover for my big slouchy cushion because I'm not a fan of the tartan that is on it.

  (The orginal)


The white in the middle panel is an old t-shirt I cut up, the jean fabric is...well...old jeans.  The beigy-tan border is an old duvet cover that I dyed with tea (my first time dyeing anything and I got rid of a whole bag of tea that I would never drink!). Took me way longer that I thought it would but I'm quite pleased with the result.  Now to do one for the other pillow I have.....

4  Star Blanket - My first!!! in Quilting: Completed Projects by vickyvicvicvic on: September 09, 2007 12:11:36 AM
Hi Everyone.  I just finished making a blanket for my pal's baby girl and I wanted people on here to look at it and tell me what they think.  (Cos I'm all about the praise Wink).

Anyway its more of a blanket because I didnt use wadding in the middle - it has a fleece back instead.  I like it very much and am very proud of it (esp for my first one lol).  I probably wouldnt have had the inspiration to do this for the baby if I hadn't come on here and seen all the other fabulous projects in the forum!  So thank you all and I hope you like it....

This is the top with the star on it (sorry it so wrinkly - i hadn't got round to washing and ironing it yet).

And this shows a little of the back and the contrast stitching i did around the middle rectangle.

Whaddya think ?

5  Reduced, Reused, Recycled - Another take on the recycled jeans bag! in CHALLENGE 20 ENTRIES by vickyvicvicvic on: August 03, 2007 02:26:03 AM
Ok so I've been literally on the website for 10 mins and I loved it so much that I thought I would join in.
This is actually a bag I made for myself a couple of weeks ago out of all the old pairs of jeans I have lying around but am loathe to throw away because they have perfectly good swatches of demin left in them.  This is a patchwork bag made out of bits of around 4 pairs of jeans.

It has 7 panels, 6 make the actual bag and a 7th panel is folded in the bottom to give more space.

This is the flipside of the bag with a 70cl wine bottle (my favourite shopping item) beside for size comparison.

And lastly this is how it hangs (well on my door anyway).  I had to shorten the strap because it was too long to begin with and I kept banging the shopping off my knee.
It's not as colourful or ornate as some of the other fabulous bags but I really like its simplicity - plus it's very strong and washable.
