1  T-Shirt Blanket! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DancinInTheDark on: July 29, 2014 09:27:50 PM
I wasn't sure if this should go under Home Sweet Home or somewhere else so I decided to put it here. I made this over July 4th weekend with my new sewing machine.  Grin I had a bunch of t-shirts that were not really wearable anymore and a fleece blanket that needed a new lease on life. So here is what I wound up with. I'm pretty proud of it! Sorry it's blurry. LOL I'll get some better pictures soon.

Oh snap, it's also upside down...  Embarrassed Whoops!

2  But great ideas take time! ;) in Completed Projects by DancinInTheDark on: October 21, 2011 12:33:38 AM
So. I had this bag of bottlecaps sitting about for goodness knows how long. Last weekend I was listening to my radio show and I got this great idea. I'm currently making a purse that reflects my hippie personality. Why not make buttons for said purse? So I did! Here's one of them! Sorry about the cruddy iPod picture, guys. Wink A tutorial is on the way and so are better pictures!  Cheesy Enjoy!

5  Why, yes, it's Midna from Twilight Princess... in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by DancinInTheDark on: January 21, 2011 12:09:13 PM
Hey guys!

I thought I'd show Midna off here. She's in the Poppet-Along thread too.  Wink I know, she needs shoes and other clothes. Haha.

Front view:

I know she looks weird here, but it's just the camera angle.

Back view.

6  What Do You Get When You Mix.. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DancinInTheDark on: January 08, 2011 12:04:33 PM
Vintage lace, vintage denim, and clear vinyl from sheet bags? This camera bag!
 Grin I don't know WHAT happened though-that lace is red in real life, not orange.. Thanks a LOT, Photobucket. Tongue

To Heroes of Time who don't have wallets. Come back when you have your wallet and sufficient Rupees. Wink Haha, I couldn't resist. Anywho, I got this idea in my head to make a bag for my camera that looks like the wallet Link uses in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Wink

My version:

Here's the poppet I made with the Elenore tutorialEr, I mean, pattern. Wink Her name's Midna.  Cheesy

Front view.

Back view. I know she looks drunk here, but she isn't. It's just the angle. Isn't she lovely? I'm proud of her.  Cheesy The dress was made with a pattern I just threw together. She is in dire need of more clothes though, as winter is coming. The material I used for her was this pretty but old sheet we had lying about. I used some of that in my quilt too. I know her ears are a little funky too, but that is okay.

9  My First Quilt! <3 (Picture obese) in Quilting: Completed Projects by DancinInTheDark on: November 16, 2010 06:15:24 PM
Hi, quilters! I'm working on my first quilt. Here's a little story behind it: This summer, I found a half finished quilt sitting in my grandma's barn and thought it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. So I asked my dad about it and he said that my great great grandma started making it back in the 1960's but didn't finish it for some reason. I think she died or something.  Cry I thought it would be nice to honor her by finishing it. So I have been working on it whenever possible and here are the in progress pictures. I aim to finish this over my winter break next month.  Cheesy And oh yeah, I'm definitely going to make more. I'm hooked. It's relaxing to sew quilts, mirite? Wink It's meditative. And for some reason the colors are all wonky-they look a lot better in real life.  Tongue

Some of the pieces lain out before being sewn together.

Pieces cut out and arranged on the sewn together quilt top.

Obligatory artsy shot. Wink

Closeup of the back material. It's a flat sheet I didn't want to waste.

I love the vintage fabrics in this quilt-I think Grandma would be proud.  Grin

10  This one's for you Zelda fans. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by DancinInTheDark on: September 10, 2010 11:11:31 AM
So I was playing Spirit Tracks recently and I thought it would be cool to make the stamp book Neko gives to Link so he can collect stamps for him. So I sketched the book out and then followed the sketch.

Sasquatch composition book.

Then I ended up with this:

Big improvement, no? Wink

Sorry the top picture looks weird is lying on its side. Wink
