11  Re: 2015 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by yoopidou on: February 03, 2015 07:14:53 PM
Hope you feel better soon, MistressT.

I have used atiny bit of my fabric stash.
The blackout curtains were getting some tiny holes at the bottom. I'll make some new later, but I will have to order a better fabric that I can't find in the shops here. So, for now, I wanted to improve the look.

I've added some local fabric et the bottom, over the used length. I think I might do it to all the curtains as I like the look of it.

This cookie looks even better on the beautiful mug rug.

I made some Christmas cards for the teachers. It's a wooden ornament attached to a very basic card. Here are a few with Christmas trees.

15  Summer blouses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by yoopidou on: November 06, 2014 07:22:20 PM

I made lightweight blouses as it is still quite warm. Actually, I went to the fabric store to buy oil for the sewing machine and came back with all these new fabrics. I've decided that I should make them right away and not let the fabrics go on the shelf, where they could stay for a long time.  So, here they are:

I'm thinking of adding embroidery on the collars.

Kookaloo, all your adorable baby garments have inspired me. I have decided that having no baby around isn't a reason for not making cute stuff. So, I made myself some tops.  Smiley

I am thinking of adding a trail and a lady bug on the "collar" of the red one, some 3D cherries on the green and maybe some lace on the turle one(not sure about that). I won't do anything to the orange one as it is rayon and more delicate.

18  Halloween cats in Halloween Decor and Parties by yoopidou on: October 30, 2014 12:38:02 AM

Cats invaded our home. Maybe there all here to have a purr-ty while their witches are getting ready for their big night.
And there's more:

They are all made of black construction paper and basic printer paper.

19  Halloween spray paint in Halloween Decor and Parties by yoopidou on: October 30, 2014 12:25:42 AM

There was big white blank on the wall that wasn't in the spirit of Halloween at all. So, I made a very quick painting to fill this white out.

I had old spray cans of yellow, red, black and white. I also had lots of blues, but I decided not to use them. I used an old plastic card to scrap the paint and "draw" the tombstones and trees. I cut out the haunted house, bat, witch and hat from construction paper.

Next time I will spray paint, I will make sure I have paint thinner or mineral spirits on hand, especially on a Sunday evening. There was quite a lot of scrubbing involved!

20  low flying witch in Halloween Decor and Parties by yoopidou on: October 30, 2014 12:15:58 AM

This year, I tried to give the dining room a bit of a vintage Halloween feel but I didn't want to buy any new Halloween decorations.

I made a witch with things I had at home: two trash bags for the head and body, newspaper for the stuffing, two hoses for the legs and arms, a broom, a dress, a leftover piece of black fabric, and a hat from costumes from past years, paper for the shoes and tape to hold it together. It was fast and fun to see it appear. I'm thinking of adding facial features.

The witch was flying very low above the table, so I made a sign with a yellow sheet of construction paper.
