Love the bath goodies! And the cupcake bag, really wishing I could knit or crochet, with out throwing everthing across the room after a few minutes, after seeing all the great work everyone on here has done.

I managed to finish two more things,  two stenciled shirts for my son
and two Rapunzel scarves, one is an Xmas present the second one was because my "darling" daughter just had to have one too!

22  Monsters in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ostera15 on: May 17, 2010 04:35:19 PM
I bought a bunch of furry and fuzzy fabrics a few months ago and finally decided to make some stuffed monsters with it. Since I don't embroider well unless it's on a flat surface (and if I embroider before I sew it never ends up in the middle), all the monsters have only eyes. Some of the fabric was really slippery and hard to work with and when I sewed it I must not have given it a wide enough seem allowance, since they stretched apart in the middle. Some things to work on and figure out before I try again. The ones that did come out I love and since all of these have homes I'll have to make more just so that I can keep one!

The collection:

23  Apron, first time using a pattern in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ostera15 on: May 04, 2010 08:44:04 PM
I decided to try out a purchased pattern, rather then my usual hand drawn templates, and even though I picked an easy one, it was still confusing. I liked the already drawn pattern, one less thing for me to do, but I had to wonder about the order of some of the steps in the instructions and even the English ones seemed like they were written in another language.  Undecided I may not have ended up doing things the exact way the instructions called for, but my aprons still came out looking right. I just hope reading and following the instructions gets easier with pratice since I bought a few different ones. On to the picture, and for anyone that's interested it's a Macall's stitch and save pattern.

24  Simple Scrapbook for the Worlds Greatest Grandpa in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by ostera15 on: May 01, 2010 07:55:58 PM
Our last trip home, my husband's stepfather let our daughter and a cousin give him a makeover. It takes a real grandpa to let two little girls paint his nails and give him a facial. So, to comerate to occasion I made him a small scrap book of the pictures he let us take. I used simple unfussy pages since I think the pictures speak for themselves. Here are some of my favs and the cover, excuse the slight blurriness to some of them, my camera and I need to have a chat.  Grin

I've gotten three more things on my list done.
2 quilts for kids, one used up a lot of the butterfly fabric http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340140.msg3987925#msg3987925

And my daughters kitty shelf sitter:

So I'm almost 1/2 done with my 50, but I know this summer, due to moving, I wont be able to do much crafting, so I gotta get ahead!

I finished my quilt (the first one) and made an extra to send in with it. Not sure how soon I'll attempting quilting again, as I spent way to much time with the seam ripper. That and my perfectionist self can't seem to let the few flaws still there go.

29  Quilted Potholders in Quilting: Completed Projects by ostera15 on: March 17, 2010 06:06:54 PM
I need some new potholders, had tons of random scraps (since I hate throwing supplies away), and wanted to pratice my quilting skills before I tackled my quilts for kids quilt, so what did I do, I made random scrappy, quilted potholders. Since potholders require two layers of batting (been burned before by those with only one layer) I machine quilted each side and then sewed them right sides facing, turned right side out and top stiched. I neglected to take pictures of the backs, but here are a few shots of the fronts:

30  Book Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ostera15 on: March 09, 2010 06:25:24 PM
I borrowed the Craftster gospel, aka The Craftster Guide to Nifty, Thrifty, and Kitschy Crafts, from my library last week because I love to go idea shopping, even when Im broke. And my daughters birthday is tomorrow and even thought she requested ear piercing for her present, I have to give her something. So, like magic there it was in the book, a book clutch purse. I had everything I needed already, making it within my price range, and what tween girl ever has enough purses (or Hananah Montana items)!

Now the pictures:
