31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Scrappy Scarf on: October 27, 2014 08:22:21 AM
 I saw on Pinterest a very pretty scarf made with scrap fabrics. The person made it with a serger and had large pieces of fabric panels. I don't own a serger but thought it would be really cute to make it with smaller patches and make it more useable in the winter, not so much as a fashion scarf. I have been saving up my scraps for this one for a couple months trying to get enough variety of the purple. It's for my sister and that is her favorite color. I backed it with a soft, cozy flannel and it worked really well.
 I am really happy with how it turned out. Whenever I get time, most likely after Christmas, I plan on going thru my scraps again and making me one too.  Grin
 Here it is on my table
and here is it in action, sorry for the stupid expression. The camera was not cooperating and this was the only pic in focus.  Tongue

 Thanks for looking!
32  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Frankenstein & Skulls Halloween Purses on: October 21, 2014 01:20:39 PM
 I kept saying I was going to make myself a purse. As long as I have been attempting to make them I have never carried one that I made. I always give them away. At the beginning of the month I was going on a trip to Vegas with my Dad and decided it was time to do it and make one that would travel well. I have made this pattern more than a few times and I still have one more request for it so it will be made one more time, but it really is a great pattern.
 Here is my Halloween bag for October and probably for the rest of the year too.

 on the back is the Bride of Frankenstein. Sorry for the sloppy shot. I have been using the purse for about 4 weeks now and I just took a quick shot to post it up.

 I also made one for Bunny1kenobi for the IYP swap. We met up in Vegas and actually got to meet which was beyond awesome! I knew her right away because she was carrying the bag I made for her!

 I added zippers to the tops of both of these so they are a bit different than the others that just had the magnetic closure.
 Thanks for looking and I promise after this next one I will find a new pattern.  Tongue
33  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Skull Splatter on: October 21, 2014 05:39:08 AM
 I wanted to try something a little bit different. I had this idea of doing a line drawing and water coloring loosely over it. I never watercolor so I was just winging it. I chose a skull to get in the spirit of the season. After I finished the line drawing and water coloring I thought it needed more so I brought out the spray inks and gave it a couple squirts with both green and a teal. I think the teal has a shimmer to it which I liked.
 The skull isn't perfect. This was more of an experimental piece. I also used a brush pen for the inking instead of a regular pen for a more organic feel.
 Thanks for checking it out! Grin
34  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Luna the Lady on: September 23, 2014 07:10:22 AM

 This was done for Suereal in the IYP swap. I also did her other dog Cosmo as a gentleman.
 This one is Luna the Lady. She wanted her dog to be anthropomorphic Steampunk characters. I think Luna has some sass.  Smiley I cut her out and raised her from the background for a more dimensional effect. I have never done someone's animal before so I was intimidated. Much less switch them around so much. I really hope she likes them. I sent them to her parents home so she hasn't seen them up close yet.

 Thanks for looking! Grin
35  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Cosmo the Gentleman on: September 23, 2014 07:06:04 AM

 I made this piece for Suereal in the IYP swap. She asked for her dogs in an anthropomorphic style as Steampunk people. I have never done anything like this before so I was really intimidated to even try it but I think it turned out neat. I hope she likes them. They were sent to her parents house so she hasn't actually seem them close up yet.
 I cut them out and posted them on the background to give them a bit of depth. They were done in Copic markers. Cosmo was in warm gray and the rest in a neutral gray.

 Thanks for looking!
36  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Oh Deer! Pot holder on: September 09, 2014 10:55:04 AM
 I made this a bit ago but never posted it. It was for Kwality570 for the Woodland Creature and Enchanted Forest Swap.
 I bought a pattern and then completely reworked it. Originally it was for a cute fox. I still plan on making it for myself, but projects for myself always seem to never materialize.  Tongue
 I switched it around and worked it into a little deer. It has the heat resistant interfacing (I forget what it's called but it has the silver crunchy stuff in it) so that you won't get burnt when you use it. I thought it turned out cute.
37  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Owl Purse & Coin Purse on: September 09, 2014 10:48:30 AM
 I haven't posted up in a while and realized I hadn't added this guy up yet! I made him for Kwality570 for the Woodland Creature and Enchanted Forest Swap. I had a lot of fun making the owl purse. I didn't use a pattern and it was one of my first real attempts at machine embroidering one piece of fabric over another.
 The strap is adjustable. Ever since I figured out how to do that I love it. Nothing is worse that a purse with a strap that is a hair to short or long.  Tongue

 I also made a coin purse to go with it but not be too matchy.  Wink

 Thanks for checking them out! Grin

 Bring your love of Woodland Creatures and Enchanted Forest alive in a craft swap! This swap will be for 1 Medium and 2 smalls. You can spoil but please communicate this with your partner.
 There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

 No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don’t sign up.
 If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let us know ASAP.
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post up on the thread at least once a week to let us know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let us know.

40  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mother's Day Purse on: May 11, 2014 02:36:25 PM
 My Mom saw the other purses that I made and asked me to make her a purse for Mother's Day. She has never asked for a purse before so I was really excited to make her one. We went to the store and she picked out the fabrics. I thought they were very pretty. I told her I wouldn't get the zippers in on time but I did (thank you zipit zippers!) and was able to have it finished and surprise her.  Grin
 I gave it to her about an hour ago and she was surprised and really liked it.

 The wall is light blue so it makes the colors a little weird.

 Here is the outside pocket with the magnetic snaps.

Outside in the garden, liked the colors better out here.

and with the straps down...

 I already have my next bag picked out. I can't wait to do another pattern. LOL!
 Thanks for looking.  Smiley
