1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Coasters on: September 01, 2004 10:41:28 PM
Title: Coasters for Kiki (my sister)

Inspiration: http://www.upliftingarts.com/create/coasters.htm

Reason: Kiki's birthday (8/30) - with new furniture in a new house she needed some coasters!

Comments: I had some left over blues (her favorite color) from some quilting projects so I was excited to finally have a use for them. I was debating on whether or not to "quilt" them with a stitched design on top of the color blocking. I tried it out and I didn't like it at all - it competed with the color blocking too much. So the down side is this: if/when she washes them, they will most likely get a little distorted, but they should flatten out pretty quick with a full beverage. This project was fast and easy...hopefully she'll approve of them.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Floppy Hat - Tutorial on: August 03, 2004 10:42:56 PM
I finished my first hat today! It's nice and big for my huge head (a large head with big hair makes hat-buying headache inducing! Also, we're leaving for a road trip soon and it would be nice to have something to shield my eyes from the blinding sun!) I tried to make a pattern off of a travel hat, but that proved too difficult for me.  So I made a pattern up myself and after 2 prototypes and 2 trips to the fabric store I was satisfied. (Did you know canvas doesn't wash well? I know that NOW.)
