11  Beer Potholders in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: December 05, 2016 05:45:30 AM
 I made a set of these beer potholders last year for the 12 mini days of Christmas swap for my partner and my BIL saw them and really liked them. I didn't have any time to make them last year so I made a set for him this year. Last year they were trimmed in green since I used different panels. Yellow went with these particular ones. I normally hate sewing bias tape on but this year it went a lot smoother than normal.  Wink
 They have Insul-brite and two layers of cotton batting on the inside.



 Here's what last years looked like.


 Thanks for checking them out!

15  Floral Sandra Saddle Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: November 14, 2016 10:03:02 AM
 I made this bag for LovelyMiss in the Games Swap. I got the fabric off her Pinterest and I love it. It was so pretty in person. The colors were all very rich and full. I think it made for a pretty bag. I used the Sandra Saddle Bag by Swoon. I really like the pattern. It allows for a cool focus fabric front and lots of room inside with the pockets and I adore an adjustable strap.

 I am using some of her pictures, hope she doesn't mind. My pics were kind of dark (thanks Winter!).

 I loved the way the fabric allowed me to do the gusset. The pink worked its way up the side. The other side was a bouquet of flowers.

 And the inside was a pop of bright green.

16  Ink Splatter Girl Hoop in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gozer on: November 14, 2016 08:04:27 AM
 I made this for the recent Games Swap for LovelyMiss. She likes the watercolor drippy type artwork so I thought I would give it a shot, but without water colors. They just don't seem to like me. Instead I used Alcohol inks, acrylic paint and a Sharpie.
 It was really vibrant and bright the first night but after it dried it lost a lot of the punch so I reapplied a few times and layers of watered down Acrylic.
 She said she liked it so I'm happy. It was pretty fun to drip paint and flick the brush at it. I am normally so precise that this was freeing.
 I liked the way she looked from different angles too.
