21  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / first quilt (baby quilt) on: June 30, 2008 10:29:23 AM
I made this for my friend Jessica who is having a baby girl soon. I used pink Minky and a furry cream material, and a cotton backing with a vintage winnie the pooh print. satin binding. It also has little satin rosettes at the intersections because I ended up tie-quilting it instead of just stitching in the ditch because the fur kept getting stuck in the sewing machine foot when I was topstitching.  I definitely do not recommend using fuzzy/furry fabrics as a beginner, it made things 100x harder!

23  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Buster's new bed on: June 04, 2008 03:38:08 PM
Here's my parent's dog Buster modelling the dog bed I made him...how could I not when I found fabric with a dog that looks just like him on it!  The fabric dog even has a little thought bubble with a bone over his head...that is totally Buster!  Anyway, its a cotton removable cover with muslin pillow...took 7.5 bags of poly to fill it! Smiley

24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / second quilted purse on: March 22, 2008 09:17:30 AM
This is the second quilted purse I've made with pre-quilted fabrics. Well actually second purse ever!   I used Butterick pattern 5197, purse B.  I like this purse a lot more than my first one, probably because I picked out the fabrics for this one! Smiley  The first one I made was for my mom, so she picked the fabrics out and the purse design.  I got laid off from my job about 2 months ago, so when I'm not job hunting, I've been crafting!  It's keeping me sane.

26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / my first sewing project, a snuggly bunny! on: March 17, 2008 07:19:05 AM
This was my first ever sewing project and I am so proud with how it turned out.  Its a bunny blanket, a stuffed bunny head attached to a fleece blanket.  That satin binding was the hardest part!  Facial features have been hand embroidered, everything else was machine sewn.

I can't post pics yet so here is the link!

This was really hard!  This was my 5th sewing project ever...used a butterick pattern to make a Vera Bradley knockoff for my mom.  I'm really proud of how it turned out, even if it is not really my style.  Roll Eyes
