31  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:

32  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:

33  First stenciling project in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ostera15 on: March 05, 2010 09:07:16 PM
Printed tee- shirts seem to cost way too much, $25 for a shirt!!! So, after reading many posts about freezer paper stenciling, I decided to try it myself. I made two shirts, for my husband, and I really only like one of them. I guess I can write the first one off as my starter work. I also found out with that one that the more detail the harder it was to get the freezer paper to stick to the shirt. That and my iron doesnt like me! The second one was just like a shirt I found online for $24 plus shipping, I am proud to be a cheapskate, and did it myself!

35  My first knitting (with a knifty knitter) in Knitting: Completed Projects by ostera15 on: February 24, 2010 06:03:08 PM
I have never knit anything before. The one time I tried the needles got all tangled up, I made a mess, got really frustrated and gave up. But I love the way knitted and crochet items look (nope can't do that either) and I really wanted to make something. People on the Post on everyboard craftalong were posting about the Knifty Knitter looms, so I went out a found one of those. I love how easy it was to do even for a beginner, and just maybe after a few more times of using it I will work up the curage to try the needles or hooks again. But on to the picture, for a basic beginning item I picked a scarf that is going to be given to  my sister.

36  Last Soccer Season in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by ostera15 on: February 20, 2010 06:59:55 PM
I finally got around to scrapping my daughter's pictures from last soccer season. I'm not really fond of scrapbooking, but I do want my kids to have more then just photo albums when they're older, so I do really basic pages, and that happy medium works for me. Both kids have huge albums that I add to, so there are only three pages of soccer not a whole album. Please feel free to offer advice, and yes that is my cheesy hand drawn soccer field.







Thanks for Looking!

Yea, I get to cross a few more things off my list, of course I added a few more too! I finished my feminine care products wallet, a checkbook cover, and a credit/store card purse. I decided not to make a wallet since I found one at the store the I liked. Here's the link if y'all want to check out what I made.

38  My purse is now organized in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ostera15 on: February 19, 2010 07:05:14 PM
I made a few things to help clean up the mess that is my purse, a credit/store card holder because I have way more then my wallet will hold, a checkbook cover, and a feminine care product holder. The checkbook cover and card holder were my own creations, I just measured and cut two pieces of fabric, put some interfacing in between and sewed. The tute for the feminine care product holder I got from here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/manicbutterfly/sets/72157601049839097/

39  Plastic Bag Holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ostera15 on: February 13, 2010 07:27:28 PM
About a month ago a friend asked me if I would make her a plastic bag holder. I said sure no problem and the thought oh no it needs elastic. Elastic and I don't get a long, many projects have been redone over and over, just because they use elastic. Never the less I said I would do it so I did, what would have been an hour or less for most people, became about 3 hours, damn elastic, but it is done!



If anyone is interested here's the link where I found the how to:

40  My first etching in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by ostera15 on: February 11, 2010 10:18:05 PM
I had a glass jar with a lid (Yankee Candle) and a bunch of miscellaneous game pieces with no home so I put them together to make more clutter for my home Grin. I etched a fitting quote on the jar first "It's only a game... as long as your winning." Not very happy with the way it came out and had I bothered to read the boards here rather then just the back of the etching cream container, I would have learned that using just contact paper doesn't always have the best results. But never the less it was a learning experience. And here are the pictures:

Empty, you can see the etching better:


And finished, only need a few more pieces to fill it:
