31  Re: Inchie Exchange Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Alli_Lucy on: February 02, 2008 08:08:11 AM
I received amazing inchies from Superhooker and Alteredmommy this week!  The ones from Superhooker actually came days ago, but I've been knocked out with an awful flu, which has caused me to be a terrible partner and not post pictures until now. 

From Superhooker (sorry, my camera does not want to capture these.  If you have better ones, please post them):



I got part of the octopus/tree!  I love them all, but I think the embroidered felt are my favorites.  They feel so nice in your hand.  The drawings are beautiful, though.  I love how soft they look.

From Alteredmommy:



These are all so cool!  I keep deciding that one is my favorite, and then changing my mind.  Right now, the contest is between "perceptible" (I love the watch gear) and the heart, although "flim-flammed" is right up there too.  Oh, who am I kidding, they are all fabulous.

Thank you, ladies!

32  Inchies by Alli_Lucy (Image Heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Alli_Lucy on: January 26, 2008 04:38:48 PM
Yup, it's another inchies thread!  I made these for the inchie exchange swap; they were my first.  They are all on their way to their new owners now, but since they were conceived of and made as a set, I thought they needed a place where they could be seen as a set.



These are mixed-media collages. I started out with a piece of a cereal box, which i covered in layers of scrapbooking paper, old text, sewing patterns, and paint:



Then I added images from a 50's children's magazine and text from Great Expectations:



Finally, I added details with pens, markers, inks, stamps, and colored pencils, to end up with my finished set of 50:







Thanks for looking!

33  The Amazing Infinity Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Alli_Lucy on: January 26, 2008 02:58:02 PM
I came across this thread - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104089.0 - soon after I discovered Craftster, and have wanted to make an infinity dress ever since.  This afternoon, I finally got around to it.  My husband and I are throwing a cocktail party for the Oscars, and so I decided that it would be the perfect excuse to try out Rostitchery's tutorial.  I made mine as a pencil skirt, rather than a circle skirt, to give it a slightly more formal look (plus, I just like pencil skirts  Tongue).  I cannot stress how fabulous this dress is.  I LOVE it.  It took less than an hour to make, it was simple to put together, and the results are awesome.  There will definitely be more of these in my future.

Here are a few (bad) pictures I took of my tying experiments.  I'm having so much fun playing with ways to wear this dress.





Thanks for looking!

In the hopes of joining this swap, I'll go ahead and share a beautiful/useful image, my button collection:



I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the timing will work out and allow me to join!


MistressT, maybe I'm misunderstanding, but it sounds to me like wists is working for you.  I use Firefox, and have "Add to Wists" on my bookmarks toolbar.  When I click it, it asks me to choose a thumbnail of the image I want to appear on my wists.  I click the image, which adds the item to my wists.  Then I get the option to view my wists, or return to the page where I began.

35  Sewing Machine Cover in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Alli_Lucy on: January 21, 2008 09:16:18 AM
A friend and I had a sewing date yesterday, and this is what I came up with.  I have been covering my sewing machine with an ugly old tote bag, so this is a vast improvement.  Now I just need to make a matching cover for my Cricut (which is currently being covered with an old towel - not cute!).

The front and back are aqua (made from a pillowcase); the sides and top are pink floral.  This picture is really washed out from the massive window that is in front of my sewing table.  I suppose I should have moved the machine to take the picture.



A close up of the applique (I used Sublime Stitching patterns for it).  I realize now that I should have used more strands of floss to make the design stand out against the textured fabric.  Oh well. 




I would recommend this project to anyone who is looking for a quick and satisfying afternoon of sewing.  My craft room looks so much nicer now!

Wow, I love what everyone has been doing!  I'm sorry that I've dropped of the face of the earth (and this thread); school has started back up, which has seriously reduced my Craftster time.  Nevertheless, I finished my inchies this morning!  I'll be sorting and packing them tomorrow, and sending out on Tuesday.  Here is a sneak peak of the finished set, in case anyone from the red group wants to stake a claim on a favorite:





I hope you like them!

I received not one, not two, but THREE wonderful sets of inchies at the end of last week! 

First, from Homerof2:




Next, from Ma Rut:



I also have to show how these were packaged, because it is just too cute!




And last, but certainly not least, from MissApril:



Thanks again, ladies; they are all lovely!

I received from Frosty772 yesterday!  I love everything, and am already bursting with ideas for it.  I think I'm going to use the Coke fabric first - my husband loves Coke, so I definitely have to make something for him with it.

I tried to fit all of the fabric into one picture, but it was impossible!

One half:


Second half:


My two favorites, a little washed out from the flash, but still lovely:


Thanks again, Frosty772!

I received my inchies from Rackycoo this evening!  Thank you so much, Racky.  They are beautiful - your inchies are such a great start to this swap! 



Ack, for some reason my photobucket has stopped properly rotating images.  I'll try to get that fixed later.

40  Sublime Eye Masks in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by Alli_Lucy on: January 01, 2008 01:02:52 PM
I made these eye masks for two of my closest friends.  The three of us are archaeologists who live in the US but work on sites in Europe, which equals too many long nights on planes over the Atlantic.  I'm hoping that these might help with catching a few hours of sleep.  If not, at least they are stylish  Smiley.  I'm crazy about the Bon Voyage patterns.



They are backed with the same apple-green taffeta that is covering the elastic.  I put thin batting in between the layers to make the masks comfy.  They certainly aren't my best work - the embroidery was rushed and I had major problems sewing even curves on my machine while the taffetta frayed everywhere - but they were made with love.  and lots of cursing.
