I received from igobylorib, and its really amazing. This picture isn't the greatest, as I forgot I had my camera on a WAY lower pixel setting and now its dead (and charging).. I promise to put up better pictures later.
I told her the basic colors of my room, but couldnt find it online, so she winged it. I laid it on top of my pillowcase so you could see how dead-on the color combos are.
Its a combination of hand-sewn, and machine sewn with decorative stitches too... i will get close up pictures later (probably tonight). DH is taking me out to Olive Garden for lunch (woo hoo for salad and breadstix!!), and I have to get ready
I claimed a girlosun_9 for the OWS 35, and on her wists she had one of these from etsy. The oven mitt is super adorable (lined with fleece instead of batting because I didn't have any), and the apron I made with ribbon ties in the back because I wasn't sure how old her daughter was, and didn't want to give away what I was making. She can cut them to size and heat-seal them
The felt food is handsewn, and I stuffed the cookies with polyfil sprayed with vanilla-icing body spray, so everything smells edible The box is decoupaged (its a photo box) with scrapbook paper I cut out with an exacto. I LOVE the way everything turned out!
My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was really little, and I hadn't done it since then. Just recently my mom was talking about having me finish a throw she was working on when she passed away, and I decided I needed to get back in the hang of things. So I made this. I didn't use a pattern... I just saw a hat like this and winged it. After a lot of undoing and redoing, its finished. I LOVE it, especially since I just hacked all my hair off Plus, it looks tie-dyed!
I received from Quilted, and SHE'S AWESOME!!!!!!! I've been in love with the "parasite pals" stuff (i'm a nerdy labtech, and think its hilarious)... and she TOTALLY hooked me up! Plus there's some beautiful fabric and batting
Here's all the loot:
Here's all the parasite pals stuff... complete with sticky tape, memo/addy book, erasers, and THE LUNCH KIT!!! I've had this in my wist forever!
Here are my favorite fabrics.....
And a closeup of the stickers and memo book...
I was at a family function when I opened it... I was so excited and everyone else thought I was crazy for being excited over fabric and stuff with tapeworms on it... but what do they know anyway
Okay, let me say first that I'm pretty sure either Gavagai is the best stalker ever, or she's psychic. She really nailed ALL of my tastes with the fabric she sent. Even the ziploc bag was cute, and she sent beautiful postcards from all over the world for Maddison.
Here's the whole loot:
Here's are my favorites (although I love them all!)... I almost bid on the IKEA fabric on ebay today, no kidding! Then, there's some day of the dead fabric, kawaii, and vintage Smurfs! I almost died!
And here's the lovely Maddison who would barely hold still long enough for me to snap a pic... she wanted to put the postcards in her album They're really cool, from all over (even the Phillipines and Sydney!)
Okay, let me begin by saying... if you haven't seen rocky horror in the theatre, GO! I'd never been, although the movie is a favorite of mine, until Saturday.
We decided to go Saturday morning, so this was thrown together QUICKLY. The vest was $2.99, the shirt $1, and the wig $9, plus the leopard fabric at $.50 (the vest and top were locally found at a thrift store), plus the jewelry chain. Eddie (meatloaf) is my favorite character, so here's the costume. I LOVE it, and threw it together in less than an hour. I lined the vest with leopard print, then sewed it open in the front so it would show. The back is panted, with chain sewn on. The tshirt has "Eddie" on the front in glitter.
I realize I totally look like a man here, but I had to
Comments welcome... and PLEASE go to the nearest midnight showing!!!
I received and its adorable! I had very similar tastes to my partner, we both liked gnomes and the like. To encourage my newly acquired love of sewing, she sent me this adorable tape measure (The card is in the pic too as I thought it was beautiful). Thanks monkeythumb... I LOVE it!
