1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / my first 2 quilts!! finally posting - 7 pics on: January 28, 2009 09:24:02 PM
these are my first two quilts. my cousins 2 daughters *i babysit them, theyre my "borrowed" kids* have a combined birthday party early oct. and i really wanted to make them quilts... i finished them in october, finally got pictures of them earlier this month, and FINALLY posting something now... yeah i know, i have to work on my follow-through...

since natalie (2) is the "wild one" i thought the mishmash of colors would suit her. light pink sashing, and a light blue flowers on white for binding. my very first binding!!!!! *my lqs owner/bff's mom taught me and praised me on my corners. Smiley* the blocks didnt match up as well as i would have hoped, but hey it was my first! i tried to camouflage it by only stitching in the ditch around each 4 strip block.



love the backing fabric! and its a really good match for the colors on the front. Smiley



and the action shot... nat insisted josh *my hubby* be covered too. she has him wrapped around her lil pinky lol *josh was really tired and zombie-esque from work and made me crop him out.. vain!*





Hayden (5) is the girly girl. i had to get the pink on white floral, and found the 2 pink calicos to match. its sashed in plain white cotton and bound in the light pink. fabric shot, as the ones of the quilt are off in color...



quilted with straight lines across, lining up with each block and backed with a pink and white offset grid/argyle(?) flannel. had to add a patch of the pink fabric to make the backing big enough... EVENTUALLY ill applique her initials to it.. maybe.



didnt get a picture of the back but this is an action shot.. she was making a tent and got distracted by spongebob... *the dark pink patch in the back was ALMOST centered.. eh shes 5, she wont care.)



and hayden being a ham for the camera. she told me shell "be my model" <3 love her!



 at first my cousins husband put them away bc he didnt want them to ruin them *i was flattered!* but let him know theyre suppoed to be used, and now im proud to say theyre well loved!

comments? criticism? praise and advice is always welcome lol
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Pet Halloween Costume - Zero from The Nightmare Before Christmas on: October 31, 2008 08:41:08 AM
im one of those ppl who LOVES halloween and dressing up.. and being a crafty person, i refuse to buy a flimsy ill-fitting costume and make it myself... Smiley

i have other costumes to finish (of course i procrastinate!) but i couldnt resist torturing the dog (he likes wearing hoodies and the like, i swear. he gets cold fast, bc hes a mini poodle.. trust me he needs a jacket during a nj winter)

its a thin white waffle weave (reminds me of a baby blanket.. and my dog LOVES blankets) with a red fleece covered button for a nose and ears on his hood.. one button at the chest, and a small band across the belly.

took about an hour and im really happy with it. but i think my dog looks pretty darn cute in anything lol Smiley
