1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wedding projects 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  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sampler for a Golden Wedding Anniversary 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  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / The Big Knit on: August 28, 2008 10:48:32 AM
Just wondering if anyone else is taking part in the big knit for Age Concern (Scotland in my case).  Good way to get rid of bits of stash......

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Repurposed Cushion cover. Or how I made a bogging cushion look nice. 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)

  (Better)

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.....
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Star Blanket - My first!!! 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 ?
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Help - I'm making a baby quilt but have no idea about children! on: August 15, 2007 02:09:12 AM
Hi all.

Ok I have designed an applique baby quilt to make for 2 of my friends whose babies are due in the next month or so (they don't know each other so I'm using the same pattern Wink).  I've done a small test quilt from scrap so I know it will work well but my question is what type of fabrics is good to use for a baby so that they won't overheat at night.  Like I say I have no experience with the practicalities of children.  Is 2oz poly wadding ok?  Does it need to be more or less?  Is flannel ok for the wadding?  I saw a really nice satin fabric - is satin too fussy for a baby?  Will it clean well?  And the backing - is cotton a better bet for wear, tear and washing?  Again will that be too warm for the baby? 

Any help would be appreciated as I am clueless when it comes to children.
7  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 20 ENTRIES / Reduced, Reused, Recycled - Another take on the recycled jeans bag! 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.
