21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby gift, soft, soft, soft! on: August 24, 2008 08:37:17 PM
I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but since I havn't posted here for a while (swaps, swaps. swaps) I thought I would make an appearance.  I made this little quilt for a baby gift.  I just used 5" squares and quilted with the batting before put the backing on.  I embellished the quilt with a lace doilly from the thrift store. I used a floral print minkee remenant for the back.

and a shot with the pretty Minkee showing

the other part of the gift

Thanks for looking Cheesy

I ordered this fall charm pack from Moda, but I did not know what I was going to make. I started sewing and this is what happened.

I used the flowers in this project for the middle row.
I used some beautiful brown velvet for the backing.

Thanks for looking-Julie
24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cute pin-up girl embroidery on: July 18, 2008 01:35:48 PM
So, my grandma had these tea towels that she embroidered way back when, probably in the 40's or 50's.  I have always planned on replicating them.  I finally did it, I took a photocopy of the tea towel and traced it with a fabric transfer pencil, and went to it.  this is how it came out.  My sister swears that my grandma drew these (there is another style I haven't done yet) and that they are her original artwork, she is passed so I can't ask her.  I haven't ever seen these designs before, if anyone out there has seen this before please let me know, it would be really cool if it was an original.

I love this Wee Wonderfuls "Stichette" and had to make something out of it.  I decided on a grocery tote, and I think it came out cute.  You really can't go wrong with her wonderful embroidery patterns.

The embroideried patch is a pocket perfect for a cell phone:

26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Quilted Fish Water Bottle holder on: July 11, 2008 04:27:00 PM
Our business partner had a health scare a few months back and has gone super healthy, which means he is drinking a lot of water.  He was complaining about having to carry his water bottle everywhere, so i offered to make him a water bottle holder.  of course I couldn't make just any old water bottle holder, it had to be special.  He is an avid Fly Fisherman, so that is the theme I chose.  I silk Screened fish on plain black cotton fabric, and to add a little embellishment, I stitched in some fishing hooks in gold thread on the tab closure.  It was not the easiest project ever, but I think it came out good.

The strap is long enough to go over the shoulder

It was my first time free hand quilting (hooks) on my sewing machine

Thanks for looking!
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Our Lady of Guadalupe Pot Holder on: July 11, 2008 04:09:37 PM
O.K. so I found this georgeous fabric panel the other day and had to have it.  I plan on making a wall hanging out of it but in the mean time I decided that the squares were the perfect size for a pot holder.  I quilted it with metalic gold thread and I think it came out pretty good. (even though that metalic thread was not to fun to work with, kept breaking)

28  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Tea dyed, silk screened onsies on: July 11, 2008 04:00:00 PM
I have a coworker who had a baby boy, and I wanted to make him a little something.  I asked him what colors he liked and he said the baby looked good in browns.  So I tea dyed some onsies ( they look better in person)  and silk screened/stenciled them, I am happy with them.

His parents LOVE wine

This is a fish screen I had for another project

And this is a dollar store Monkey stencil
29  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / I did it!! on: June 28, 2008 08:14:24 PM
My husband was looking for a way to get logo t-shirts for his start-up company, the key word here is start-up, which means no budget for t-shirts.  I told him that I would figure something out.  So I set out to find an inexpensive way to silk screen and I came across the embroidery hoop, modge podge technique and this is what happened.

I also did a tutorial video for our youtube channel, here is the link-
