1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Stealth's new PJs on: September 06, 2010 07:47:36 PM
I made these last night-now I know that it is September and not too cold right now but soon...it will be in the middle of winter.  And well, Stealth is an Italian Greyhound and does not have too much fur, or fat to keep him warm.  Hence, the fleece jammies for Stealth to wear anytime he wants.  He doesn't like it when you first put it on him, but he quickly warms up to the idea when he is, well warm.

This is a Simplicity pattern, #3939 view B





And a cute little butt shot!  lol

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Dragon Hoodie on: May 16, 2010 04:57:32 PM
I completed this a while back but have now gotten around to posting.  This is for my friends who are about ready to have their first child-a boy!  So I figured I better start this as soon as I could-luckily I finished before he was even born!  lol

This is such a cool little hoodie-I've even had some friends ask for adult sized ones!

 







And here's a little newborn open cardigan and hat for little Kian when he arrives!



4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reversible Halloween Bags on: September 29, 2009 04:25:22 PM
I think this is so cool!  I used regular placemats and lined them with scrap fabrics from around my craft room.  

They're cheap and inexpensible which makes them great for different holidays....you could almost make one for every week!!    Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy   (hmm....)

I didn't add any sort of pockets or extra divisions that I normally add for my "everyday" purses-but since this is seasonal I figured I wouldn't use the purse long enough.  Besides it just adds more bulk to the purse, and more space for me to stuff receipts, pens, chapstick, etc. that would eventually stay forever in that purse because I hardly ever clean out my purses!!

Anyways, on to the purses!!


Outside of one, I bought one placemat and one kitchen towel...even though they were the same stiffness, and the kitchen towel was bigger.





Inside of purse #1-the placemat



Inside of purse #2-the kitchen towel

Thanks for looking!!

C & C also welcome!    Grin Grin Grin


Edit

I forgot to add this when I first posted these awesome bags-but I received my inspiration from a couple of posts from right here on craftster!  I wish I could remember the member/post I received my inspiration but I'm sure if you check the tute page or scroll through a couple of the pages you will see the original post. 

Thanks again, and I'm sorry about forgetting to mention my inspiration.  Thank you craftster, you are my muse!!   Cheesy




5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mermaid Wallhanging-sorta art quilt on: September 14, 2009 02:58:54 PM
So this was a piece that I created for the Mermaid swap recently and since my partner has received and posted the pictures that I would share the wall-hanging since I was so darn tootin' proud of it!

I wanted to keep it-but knew I had to give something to my partner!!!   Grin



Closeup of the center-which was handpainted by me with craft acrylic paint.  It's permanent and does not need to be heat-set.  It's a nice medium because it allows for fine detail-but since I have been playing around with the paint for about 6-7 years, it's great!


Closeup of the closeup   Grin


The back


Hope you all enjoy!!






6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Lonestar Wedding Quilt-lots of photos!! on: August 31, 2009 04:17:47 PM
This is my most recent quilt-a lonestar pattern with different colors.  I know the bride doesn't like the color blue-and that's my favorite color, so it was a small challenge to not incorporate blue of any sorts.  But, I really liked how it turned out and really have grown to be quite attached to it.  But alas, another quilt not for myself...one of these days I will make one for myself.

So-on to the pictures!!

Me holding the final product!


The front and the back complete


Already being put to good use by Maggie!! 

The complete backing that shows the quilting-really simple, it was a $3.00 flat sheet from wal-mart and simple lines (one of these days I'll venture into more decorative stitching but for now, stitch-in-the-ditch and straight lines work just fine!) 

A close-up of some of the fabrics

An early photo of the piecing stage...I really just didn't want this photo to be displayed on the main page!!   Grin



C & C always welcomed and encouraged!!   Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Have a wonderful day!! Cool
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hooked on shell...and beads on: August 18, 2009 08:20:41 AM
Hello all!

I really dabble in jewelry making, easy peasy stuff that I don't have to pay $15 for (crazy stores)

Here's some of stuff I've been working on lately.

Hope you enjoy!  C & C welcome please!









I tried to play around with this photo but this is the best I can lighten it up...they are white shell oval with purple and turquoise/brown shimmer beads in the middle. 


Have a lovely day!!   Grin
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Wedding Star Quilt on: May 21, 2009 08:29:41 PM
This was a wall hanging I had made from a friend of the family as a wedding present.  I know the pattern is from one of my quilting magazines and was the center of a large bed-size quilt.  But because of time and money I choose to make the center a wall hanging.

Maggie just had to get in the picture!




Look Ma!  My points match!!  (Of course I carefully chose this point to show y'all my wonderful piecing abilities-the others do not necessarily look this good)


Now all of the quilting was finished!


And the back


And now it's all done!!


Enjoy!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / MU Dog Sweater on: February 01, 2009 09:03:22 PM
I'm so glad I finally found this forum!!!  I was wondering where I could post some clothes I made for my Maggie-problem solved!!

This was a cute little sweater thing I made for Maggie.  We live in Columbia and even though I don't attend MU we still attend some sporting events and whatnot. 





10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / My Wedding Dress-image heavy on: February 01, 2009 02:50:21 PM
I thought that I would take a moment to brag about my mom and my wedding dress she made.  It was about a year and a half ago (the wedding) but it's never to late to brag about your momma!!

We used a pattern but I can't remember which one (and it was altered so much I'm not sure it came out the same).  It was white satin sorta thing, with a white embroidery sheer.  For the top, we used those fabric markers on the embroidery to make it stand out.

My Momma and Me


I was running late and am normally very punctual. 







(She also made the bridesmaid's tops-I choose the color but they were able to choose the style)

My mom's just awesome!!    Grin Grin Grin

I hope the photos show the dress well
