2  Felt Valenines (Pac Man & Cuppy Cake Hearts) w/pattern link in Valentine's Day by Lil_Birdie on: January 20, 2008 04:08:44 PM
I <3 playing around with felt almost as much as I <3 those 8 bit games . Here's a couple of valentines I just made.

And the pattern . I have an easier way to sew them up rather than fiddling around trying to match up precut hearts explained on my blog here

3  Attack of the Cone Heads (Santa's , Gnomes, Elf Oh My !) in Winter Holidays by Lil_Birdie on: December 10, 2007 10:18:11 AM

I've been making these little ornaments to attach to my gifts .
They are put together pretty similar to the ice cream cones I posted here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=209468.msg2244557#msg2244557

I made them using mostly leftover scraps (some are cotton , flannel or felt)
and they only take about 10-15 minutes each to make .

Most of you can probably easily figure out how I put them together form these photos but if you want a step by step how to and measurements I've written them up here

was so super bummed about it last night, but i decided to "keep moving forward"! i played around with all the different ideas from everyone (again, thanks!) and ended up doing an appliqu over the middle white area. it still sort of looks like a swastika, until i hang it up and it's diagonal, and then (i think) it just looks pretty and quilted.

I did the same to my quilt , except I turned my applique on it's side like a diamond ...mine still looks like a swastika (huge block that can't be turned on it's side so I am cutting the quilt down in size to get rid of it .. it's in a spot when I can't just change the outer area )


(quilt is red white and blue and was made for my brother who is a fireman ...hahah he can't take it to work now =p )

i actually found ironing-board-cover batting by the yard at my local fabric store, so that's what is inside it. it's got a silvery finish on top, that supposedly reflects heat, so i guess that's good. i also remembered to get cotton thread, but alas, my bobbin thread was polyester. do you think that will make for problems later?

That stuff is great for making all kinds of kitchen stuff . I can't find it  in the stores near me so I end up buying ironing board covers at Walmart and taking them apart . I wouldn't worry about using the poly thread but would use cotton if you plan on making more in the future . If a little bit of thread melts on you it might hurt a tiny bit but if poly batting melts on your hands that's another story.

Pot holder is looking good now Smiley
