1  Black & Orange Glitter Nails - Manicure for Halloween in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by I Sew Cute on: September 28, 2014 12:54:27 PM
Black and Orange Glitter Manicure for Halloween by isewcute



What you'll need:
Shiny Blackish Nail Polish (I used OPI Lincoln Park After Dark)
Orange Glitter (I used a variety of different orange glitters blended together)
Clear Top Coat Nail Enamel (I used seche vite dry fast top coat)



Brush on Black polish & while it's wet, dip your nail tip into a cup filled with a little glitter.

Tap the loose glitter off & gently use your finger to pat down any glitter sticking up. You don't want to smudge it.
Brush on a coating of clear top coat & let dry. You can add another clear coat if the glitter still feels too rough. I did 2 coats. Wink


Enjoy your Halloween sparkle!   Smiley

Alright y'all, I'll do either bells or a surprise plastic canvas creation.
Here's pics of the bells in case we have new folks joining this year that haven't seen them.

Very cool rendering of the Nancy Drew image Acadian Driftwood! The quote on the back is funny! Great start to the gallery!
 
Zalphinian, I like the design of your hunger games bookmark...the leaves are beautiful & the kitty is darling!
 
Blupaisan, I love the illustration you did for Acadian Driftwood's Abhorsen books bookmark. The textures are really great to make the characters really pop, but the troll one really cracks me up! I love it!
 
AugustBell... beautiful, beautiful work!
It makes me think of an art quilt & the colors are gorgeous!
 
Toraline, what is the text on the bookmark you made for noodle-bug? I love the subtle sailboats!
 
Pioneer9,  I love the vintage illustration look of the bookmarks you made for noodle-bug. Super fab retro looking spaceman & rockets! The Shakespeare one is my favorite. Smiley
 
Elderflower... I adore your watership down bookmark... bunnies are my favorite & that pulls at my heart strings! I also love your cross stitched rainbow kitties! How did you make it double sided with the quote? Is it 2 pieces sewn together?
 
Pioneer9 - the wizard is really cool... great quote & huzzah for glitter on the bookmarks you made for Toralune. It's so thoughtful to include the book title on the penguin piece. My boy would love both of these!
 
Savvysister - I'm so tickled you like the princess bride piece...it just came to me as soon as I read your swap sign up info. Wink
 
chameleonhound, very cool hunger games bookmark! I like that you made it horizontal with all those trees & textures... you captured a great mood!
 
wizard_pupil - Such pretty beads & ribbon! Beautiful work!
 
 

I've received from whatthepuck - Thank you so much for the super fun & colorful unicorn bookmark! My mini snatched it from me at the post office, but I eventually got it back from her! Cheesy I love the rainbow colors & the fibers you used in the tassel!
Love the fiber tassel on the bird/map bookmark you made for savvysister also! The textures go so great with the images.

6  You have to try my Banana Pudding! in Dessert by I Sew Cute on: September 12, 2014 12:10:28 PM
This is hands down the best banana pudding I've ever made/had. My husband was dying for me to make it, so here it is. He says it tastes more like a banana cream pie than pudding, so I guess that's a compliment.  Cheesy

Ingredients:
4-5 large bananas
1 box Nilla wafers (vanilla wafer cookies)
1 lg box instant vanilla pudding (Not banana pudding...Weird, right? Just trust me.)
3 cups + 1/4c. milk
1 pkg. cream cheese
2 cups cool whip

Mix the milk & pudding together first, then blend in the cream cheese. (leave it out of the fridge for awhile so it softens a bit to make mixing easier)
Then blend in the cool whip until creamy.

In a deep dish/pan, what have you, line the bottom with the nilla wafers.
Spoon on a layer of pudding mix & smooth it out.
Slice up a layer of banana on top of that.

Repeat these steps until you have come to the top of your dish & have hopefully ended with a layer of fluffy pudding.
With the leftover nilla wafers, I crushed them up & sprinkled on top. I know it's not perfectly pretty, but for what this is lacking in good looks, it more than makes up for in taste! It's banana heaven baby!

Enjoy! Smiley

7  Snap Clutch Purse - Batik Patches - by isewcute in CHALLENGE 102 ENTRIES by I Sew Cute on: September 07, 2014 05:12:22 PM

This photo is by Loves2Experiment... my partner in a make a friend swap last year. Smiley


I had a great time creating this clutch because I was doing a craft I love...piecing squares as you would for a quilt...and doing something I was completely unfamiliar with...making a snap clutch with a purse frame. One of the things I love most about swaps is that it pushes me to do or try things outside of my normal comfort zone.

For this project, I cut strips of batik fabric & sewed them together, then cut the sewn together strips into yet more strips, then matched up the corners & patterns how I liked them & stitched them into a workable piece of patchy fabric.


Sewing was a little crazy, but the challenging part for me was to fit the fabric piece into the purse frame.  Roll Eyes After a couple of trial & errors...it came together as planned. Don't you love it when a plan comes together?  Grin


I think it turned out so cute!... or 'sew cute'! Cheesy Best of all, my awesome partner, Loves2Experiment, seemed to really like it!

Photo time! Blasphemy the Blasphemer sent me the cutest Yuki crafts! She really captured Yuki's look!

First, an origami Yuki with big beautiful eyes & pink in her ears!


Next, a wee marshmallow bunny that can hide in a magician's hat! I love this because we adopted Yuki from a magician & I often refer to her as my marshmallow bunny! She's magical & sweet! Cheesy


And finally the Pièce de résistance... beautiful bunny art to hang in my craft room once I find the perfect mat & frame for it. I really love this!


This has been an awesome swap & I hope to participate if there will be a round 2. It was so fun to craft Blashphemy's kitties, I didn't want it to end!  Smiley
