So I participated in the last round of the inchie exchange and had some cool inchies to start my collection. Now I've got a bunch of inchies and I don't know what to do with them. I wanted to make something useful with them that I can use most of the time. I made a extra large folio wallet with an inchie cover!
I found this cool Heatnbond Vinyl that rules! and I used it to adhere and protect the inchies on the cover. Then I winged the inside. There are places for credit cards, notes, money, etc.
I would do a number of things differently on the next one but I love it just the same!
As part of the One Tiny Thing round 21 there was a discussion of combining themes. Along the way someone said they didn't know how you could combine ninjas and eggplants. Of course an eggplant ninja. So I made him and his ninja vegetable gang.
A special shout out to the OTT21 crafters.
They can be very scary sneaking up on you on a hot summer night in a vegetable garden.
I want to make another vegetable for the gang but I'm trying to steer clear of the tomato. Its sorta been done with Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, not to mention that a tomato isn't really a vegetable at all. So I caved on the tomato, though I didn't really come up with that pattern myself. I modified LadyLinoleum's psychotic tomato pattern.
**Shout out to LadyLinoleum's patterns! Love her mind.**
I'm thinking of writing up the patterns minus the tomato, what do you think?
I made this for saltandpepper in OTT 21. Her theme was Sesame Street and she said her favorite was Bert. Well, inspiration hit and this is the outcome.
The inside with change purse (inside Cookie Monster's belly), keychain and credit card/ID pockets.
Keychain off, the back side says "C is for Cookie"
Cookie with his "mouth open"
This was a great project, I made it up as I went along. The characters are pieced from my sadly huge stash of quilt fabric, fused and stitched then outlined with permanent pen. Cookie Monster was actually an after thought but I really like how he turned out.
I nearly bust waiting for it to make it to its final home!
Now that Eliea has received and posted her, I wanted to share Marisol, the flamenco dancing poppet. I made her for the Love My Poppet swap. She decided to be a flamenco dance before she was even put together so I researched traditional costume and this is my attempt.
another pic of her dress -- those ruffles took forever, about 7 tiny circles hemmed and stitched together then to the hem of her dress.
Hope you like her, she's my 3rd poppet and I'm quite pleased with her.
So I made this Killer Tomato for a friend that recently saw the movie and has developed a new obsession. (you know who you are!) Being the natural codependent that I am, I had to feed that obsession with this little cutie. Now that I know she received I can share.
(He immediately went for the knife drawer, note the paring knife)
I also heard that on his trip to his new home he stopped off to take care of some homicidal urges... I haven't seen anything in the News yet, so he must have taken out something small and unnoticeable.
I used this pattern and modified the eyeballs to fit.
DH asked for a yellow cozy for his GPS to match his yellow truck. (He is inordinately proud of that truck.) Of course the cozy needed to be more than a simple carrying case, the GPS had to work while wearing said cozy. I added the attitude and here is my entry: You are Here
