1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Baby Onesies on: May 23, 2008 07:26:13 AM

Here are a pair of onesies I made for OWS-33. I used the Sublime stitching craftopia pattern and the tattoo lettering pattern. I think they came out really nicely! It was my first time working on t-shirt material and I don't know how often I will be doing that... I did use the tear away stabalizer and learned that longer stitches work best because they tear the stabalizer less. I think what I did with the knitting onesise worked better. Rather than stitching on the onesie itself I embroidered a piece of felt, cut it out and sewed it onto the onesie with a sewing machine. I like it that way better.

If anyone has any comments/criticisim it would be appreciated! Thanks for looking!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / A sweatshirt and hoodie for my Chihuahua on: March 23, 2008 08:39:53 PM
I have a small Chihuahua who is always cold here in Virginia so I decided to use my craftiness to make her some clothes. I used a pattern to make both of these and they fit her so well. She really like wearing them too! I think she looks really cute and I have made her more of the hoodies since I took these photos. Thanks for looking! Comments and Criticisms are always welcomed!

The L is for Lilly, her name and I made this out of scraps from my t-shirt quilt posted here
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidery needle book with initial on: March 23, 2008 08:31:25 PM
This needle book is my first completed embroidery project. I wanted to start with something small so I wouldn't be so overwhelmed that I never finished. I think it came out pretty cute! I used a tute online to make the book and I can find it again if anyone is interested. I put felt pages inside to hold my needles, scissors, needle threader, pins and other essentials. It's small enough that I can carry it around and work on my embroidery anywhere. I ordered some sublime stitching patterns so hopefully I will have some new things to post soon.

Comment and/or criticisms are always welcome, thanks for looking!
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Simple Flannel Baby Quilt on: March 23, 2008 08:25:58 PM
This is the second quilt that I have ever made and I am learning so much along the way. I really like how quickly this one came along. I put it together for a co-worker of mine and she loved it! It's her first baby and she didn't have anything handmade so I had to put something together for her. I loved this fabric and it was half off at Jo-anns. I did have a lot of trouble with the satin blanket binding. I don't know if I will be trying that again anytime soon. Any suggestions on how to use that stuff? 

Comments and/or criticism always welcome! Thanks for looking!
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My 1st Quilt (T-shirt) and my 1st post! on: February 19, 2008 02:41:10 PM
I have been lurking here on Craftster for a while now and after I finished this quilt I just had to share it. I was a cheerleader and a dancer in high school and all those old t-shirts were just lying around asking to be crafted into something more useful. So after looking on Craftster for inspiration, I came up with this. It was my very first quilt and there are many mistakes, but it's still warm and cozy! I hope you all like it!

The whole quilt (on my lumpy bed!)

Oh I just noticed you can see where I haven't closed up the bottom yet! I'll be getting to that soon.

A close up of one of the patchwork blocks where I put together pieces from shirts and shorts too small to be an individual block.

Enjoy! Any comments, suggestions, or tips are appreciated!
