 Sorry for the project dump but I had a productive weekend.  Wink

Prompt:  February Snowflake

Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: Yeti and Egon Food Bowl
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I got a pet bowl painting kit for Christmas from my sister and couldnt decide what to put on it. I finally chose to put both of my newest kitties. The paints were kind of dried out and I wasnt sure if they would stick if I watered them down so it has a juvenile feel to it. Eh. Its a unique one of a kind piece.

Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=443441.0
Brief Description: I got this pattern for the Make a Purse and Fill it swap and my Mom saw it and wanted one. I saw this fabric and knew it would be perfect for her. She loves blue. The fabric features lots of tree branches, which would be very handy if constructing a snowman.

Brief Description: It was super cold out for Valentines Day this year and my Mom has a broken foot. I knew my parents couldnt go out anywhere to celebrate so I made my Dad some homemade Lasagna which he is always begging my Mom to make. It was yummy and warm for the cold weather.

Project Name: CoCo Krispy Kisses

Brief Description: Since my Mom had a broken foot I was her helper for her Valentines Day treat making. This year we made CoCo Krispy Kisses. We made Rice Krispy Treats with the coco version of the cereal and then we smooshed it into a funnel shaped like a Hersheys Kiss and wrapped them in tin foil. We make 6 of them for the family. The bottoms of them are circular like a snowball.

Project Name: Effervescence Swoon Purse
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=443440.0
Brief Description:  When my Mom saw the purse I made for the Purse swap she asked for one just like it. I knew she would like the other one (Blue Trees) better once she saw it so I made both. She chose the Blue Trees after I fell in love with it. LOL! So, this is my new purse. Its very useful and I was in need of a new one. PS. Just in case anyone thinks this is the same purse I posted a thumbnail of the purse I posted earlier to show the different fronts, also the interiors are a different color (the original was pink, this one is blue).

Project Name: Kitty Cat Flash Cards
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I was going to go on vacation when my Mom fell and broke her foot. She was supposed to watch my house and take care of my cats and is the only one who knows what is going on with them. Each of my cats have different dietary needs, illnesses, medications, etc. I have two 16+ year old cats and the three boys get confused for each other all the time. Egons face looks like Gozers but his body looks like Venkmans so everyone gets confused on who is who. To avoid confusion I made flash cards. I included notes about who ate what, who has claws, where they hide, nicknames and things like that.

32  Blue Trees Sandra Saddle Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: February 17, 2016 01:32:25 PM
 I made a purse for the Make a Purse and Fill It Swap and my Mom really liked the style. This was that bag.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=443440.0
 I was going to surprise her with a new purse but she asked me to make her one out of the pink circles fabric after I had already secretly ordered her different fabrics. I decided to go ahead and make both and let her chose which one she wanted.
 Its a cross body saddle bag with plenty of room. It has a nice wide gusset and a big exterior pocket along with a smaller zippered interior pocket.
 After I finished this purse I really, really liked it. Unfortunately so did my Mom. Tongue Ha! She chose this bag as hers. I got to keep the original one she asked for so we both got purses. Win-win. Wink



This was the back

 I have to admit I was not so secretly hoping to keep this one. But my Mom is worth it. I knew she would like this one better once she saw it. The gold parts of the fabric were metallic and was so beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous fabric.
 Thanks for checking it out!  Grin

33  Effervescence Sandra Swoon Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: February 17, 2016 01:17:48 PM
 Its been a while since I have been on this board but February has been the month for me to get back into making purses it seems.
 I joined the Make a Purse and Fill It Swap and my partner had commented on a couple bags styles that she liked. I thought this bag did a good job of combining a lot of what she liked into one so I decided to give it a try.
 The bag has a flip up magnetic snap on the front to keep it secure and an extra front pocket. It also has a nice wide gusset so it held more than I thought it would originally. Which I was happy about.
 I think the solid black gusset keeps it from looking too busy, at least I hope so. My Mom saw this purse and liked it so I planned on making her one. I ordered her fabric but then she requested it be out of the same fabric so I made another one but with a different interior since my Moms favorite color is blue.
 This is the one I sent to my swap partner. She likes pink like I do. I think I like the front of this one best since it has more black at the bottom to break it up more.
,

 This is the one I originally made for my Mom. I went ahead and made one out of the fabric I ordered for her and she ended up liking that one more (I knew she would, she loves blue) so I ended up taking this one.



 It has taken me three attempts to post this so hopefully (fingers crossed) this time works.
 Thanks for checking them out. I now have the purse sewing bug again! Grin

34  Re: Make Me A Purse/Tote And Fill It!----->GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by gozer on: February 17, 2016 09:22:03 AM
 Last night when I got home I had this amazing package on my doorstep. It really made my day! Aisy did an amazing job on this adorable purse. I am calling it the Lion purse for obvious reasons.  Wink She used glittery vinyl to make it. It shines so much more than I could get in a picture. And just look at those little ears! Too cute! I've never worked in vinyl. It intimidates me but you did a lovely job at it. Love the strap too. It was such a sweet touch.

 And for her extras she made me two notebooks with really cool papers inside. I am a HUGE note taker. I like to write everything down, several times. LOL! I love notebooks and paper and things like that. These were really neat. The super cute cat one has a Velcro closure (love that fabric by the way!). I showed them both closed so you can see the cool covers and open so you can see the awesome papers.

 She also included an adorable felt cat keychain. I am always loosing my keys so that will help me locate them quicker, if my cats don't claim it as theirs.  Tongue

 Thank you so much Aisy! You did an amazing job and I love it all! Grin Grin Grin

CraftADDchick Those cake stands are fantastic! Great eye to pick those combos out! Im sure they really snazzed up the bake sale. I also know how you feel about your crafting mojo. After Christmas I was wiped out. I planned on doing all these projects after I quit the second job but I ended up vegging out and trying to remember where I left my determination.
 
Bunny1kenobi I already said it but I will say it again. The purse looks fantastic and I know your Moms friend will love it!

Roler yes that is the same snap tool that was donated on here. I love it! Highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of getting one. Also, I LOVE that fabric you used! Its so unique and quirky. Great find. And I love mug rugs. Those are awesome!

Brief Description: One of the things I am absolutely the worst at is Typography. It comes out horrible every time I try it. Last year I said I was going to Art Journal and start trying to do better with it. That didn't happen. I decided to give it another whirl this year. I did this on my break. It says Bex & the Glaring. Basically me and my cats.  Tongue And my hand smeared all the gold ink too. I'm naturally messy.  Roll Eyes

Project Name: Mean Cat Coin Purse

Brief Description: This is one of my all-time favorite fabrics. I LOVE this cats face. That is what my cat, Venkman, looks like when I am doing something he deems unacceptable, like petting another cat. This little zipper coin purse has a repeating cat face pattern.

Rockingbearranch Thats an awesome hoopla of Leia! Love the image you picked. She looks fierce.
 
Puzzled-penguin the Oz cross stitch is super cute. I love the colors and they do have adorable little faces. Very cool wolf tail too!

ActsofCraftiness That is a beautiful sign. Looks professional. I am sure your partner will LOVE it. And we need an action shot of that shirt! Love the paper flowers. I have a thing for paper flowers and those are super neat. Very Spring. The cake looks yummy and it was sweet of you to let the kids help!

Calabaza What a lovely dress and I adore the color! White Chocolate? That is my Kryptonite. I love the stuff. Yours looks so yummy.

Krafty_Karasu Very cool cross stitch. Love the raven on it. The earrings are very pretty too.

Project Name: Notebook Cover
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: This is a little notebook cover I whipped up this weekend. I loved the batik fabric for the stripe so I knew I had to use that. It closed with a plastic snap. I chose the grey because it looked like stones in a castle and the Brothers Grimm had lots of castles in their stories. Wink

Rockingbearranch Love the way you recycled the box to the cell phone case! Very cool little owl shrine. Those little dino stuffies are adorable. Love the fabrics you chose.  Clever and fun Twister ATC!

NoShowJr
thanks for the advice. My yard is fenced in so only the cats really get in. I had to dog proof in after a dog kept breaking in to get my bunny. In the end the box didnt work because I opened my door to feed the cat and it ran in. Ended up spending the snow storm in my bathroom eating moist cat food.

CraftADDchick Love the fabric you used for the basket liners. Very clever to chain stitch, saves time.

Roler the curry looks very yummy. Wish I had some right now! Very cool vest. I love how you get so into the bands. It looks like a bunch of fun!

Storerboughtcreations that Care Bear cross stitch is immaculate! It turned out so perfect. I too am a Care Bear fan and I love it! PS. Whose your fave? Mine are Grumpy and Good Luck.
 
Puzzled-penguin Bahahaha! I died laughing when I read that. Completely awesome! My sister would love that Daryl hoop too.
 
Bunny1kenobi The necklaces turned out really pretty! Love that little swirly button on the bottom one.
 
Krafty_Karasu Love that Ugly sweater! Very cool design.

 Here is what I did with my time snowed it. Luckily I kept power.  Grin

Brief Description: I made this for the IYP swap. It was supposed to be for the 12 Mini Days of Christmas swap but time got away from me. I have had the fabric sitting there waiting for me forever it seems. The purse has a metal slide and connectors. Ignore the cat. I had her by the bum but she was determined it was hers. We were all a little stir crazy from the snow. Tongue

Project Name: Outdoor cat snowbox
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My neighbor has two cats that pretty much live in my yard. She lets them in the house but I cant because I already have cats indoors and they dont really get along. We are expecting a huge snow storm and I wanted to make sure that the outdoor cats have a place to go in case they dont get inside. Last year I made an insulated tube for them and brought that out but wanted to throw something else out there just in case any other animals needed a place out of the snow. I made this out of an Amazon box. I left one of the flaps out as a little roof and another to block the wind. Hopefully putting it against the house will give it more protection. I covered the entire thing in two layers of extra thick trash bags on the outside to keep it from getting all soggy in the snow and put towels on the inside. It was a last minute idea to try to help any outdoor animals. Also, it looks sort of like a Borg Cube so I will go down with this ship for my love of animals.

Project Name: Cat Draft Stopper
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My kitten, Yeti Pegleg, likes to rip at the weather stripping on my doors. While I was in front of the door giving her meds I noticed a distinct draft so I whipped these up. That's the little perp in the pic. Also, the fabric has cats on it. So far she hasnt tried to mess with them too much. I filled them with rice and added some lavender scent to make them a little more comforting.

Project Name: Monkey Draft Stopper
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I got this fabric while it was on Clearance and honestly had no idea what to do with it. I saw it and thought it would be cute for the backdoor draft stopper. The backdoors edge was a little higher than the front so I might remake this a little taller if the electricity doesnt go out tonight. This one has the lavender scent added as well. This gives the impression my house will be nice and warm but it's normally cold.  Embarrassed

Project Name: Curtains for my bedroom
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I have been living in my house for about two and a half years embarrassingly and I hadnt put curtains up in my bedroom. I have shades and that was enough for me. My Mom got me some fabric to make them with about 6 months ago and they sat there, folded up under one of the windows. Last week I decided it was time. I sewed THREE curtains. It took longer than I expected with the help of two playful kittens. I added a decorative stitch to the top and bottom and a ribbon sash. I still need to put a hook in to hold them back more. I took the wide shot to show all three curtains. Sorry my room is messy. I would have made my bed but there were cats on it and I was done for the night.
