11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt Project - The Beatles on: January 29, 2012 07:09:46 AM
I wanted to make a really special gift for a friend of mine, to say Thank you for all that she does for me and after racking my brains I decided to make a Beatles quilt. The only problem was that I had never made a quilt before. I did some reading ordered some fabric and here is what I came up with.



It was difficult to get a decent picture of the whole thing.



I hand stitched lyrics from 4 different Beatles songs around the edges. I think this was my favourite part.

My friend loved the quilt and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I would like some feedback though from more experienced quilters though!

12  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Alice in Wonderland Dress. on: July 30, 2011 10:50:28 AM
I found this gorgeous fabric on-line and one of my best friend's loves Alice in Wonderland and so I knew I had to make her something from it. But I couldn't decide what. Then I came across a little dress pattern and I thought I would make a dress for her daughter. I couldn't decide which colour of buttons to go for with the fabric, but in the end chose red.
Which I think worked quite well.
The finished product....
and the gorgeous little model Isn't she adorable??

I also made another using different fabric because the pattern was just to cute!


Thanks for looking!!
13  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first attempts at children's clothing :) on: July 30, 2011 10:32:44 AM
I have always admired those craftsters who make clothing for children as its always so cute!!

I don't have any children of my own, but have lots of children in my life so a few weeks ago I thought I would give it ago. So far I have only attempted girls clothes. They seem a little easier

I started off by making this fun little reversible dress (again with a PDF from Etsy). The fabrics were so cute, brown with buttons on and orange and white polka dots. I made this for my 5yr old niece and it was a little big, but I think that for this style that's okay. She loved it and I think she looked adorable Smiley



Then I tried this milkmaid dress (using a PDF pattern I bought on Etsy)


I made the 3T size for my 2-5yr old niece but it was miles to big, lol. So it currently has no owner but it was fun to make.

I then tried some little summer tops (yip, pattern from Etsy). They were quite easy to make but I hadn't figured out button holes yet. I followed the pattern exactly on this one.


The second one I made I added little frills to the shoulders which I think looked a little nicer.


These are for my 1yr old niece but she hasn't tried them on yet so I don't know how they fit. I think they will be okay sizing them to her other clothes.

So that's it, those were my first try's and I think I am hooked!!! What do you think?

14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Knitting Needle Rolls & Make-up brush rolls on: January 23, 2011 05:13:26 AM

I made some of these for christmas gifts and thought I'd share.


The inside of the pink  one. I tried to make sure there was enough pockets for various sized needles. The flap at the top comes over the needles to make it sake when carrying etc.

and the black one (this is my favourite)


I adapted the pattern for the needle holders to make these cute little make-up brush holders.

and the inside of the miffy one.

They were well recieved and i think I'll make more in the future.

Thanks for looking.
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Button rings - lots! on: January 23, 2011 05:05:13 AM
I made these a while back but haven't gotten round to posting until today.

Sorry for the poor images - my proper camera is not working so had to make do.



These are vintage silver buttons, sewed together in arrangements and then glued to a ring base - simple but effective Smiley


These were quite popular at a recent craft fair I did. I think the simplicity is cute.


These were large plastic buttons with a shank at the back, I just cut that off and glued them to the ring base. They sparkle, as the plastic is cut really smooth.


lots of little embellished buttons Smiley


these 'zebra' buttons are groovy!


Just a few others.

I love buttons, they are so versatile.

Thanks for looking

17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mario & Luigi Rings on: January 23, 2010 12:15:20 PM

I decided to make some novelty button rings with them, think they turned out cute!





18  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Dress - Card Holders on: January 23, 2010 11:59:55 AM




After attending my friends wedding and seeing these little dresses from girlybows http://www.girlybows.com/ivorypinkbride.html I thought that I could make something similar.

I modelled the one above as a sort of mini replica of my own dress to make it a little more personal. I also preferred a smoother look on the skirt, as its like mine, so did that a bit differently too. The bodice is polymer clay and the skirt is card and tulle.

I need to make about 24, lol. 7 down and only 17 to go!

What do you think?
19  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Drawing on Glass and preserving image while firing? Is this possible? on: October 22, 2009 09:22:57 AM
I drew an image with permanent marker on a piece of white glass, I then put a layer of clear glass over the first and fired it in my Microwave Kiln. After firing it was just a white pebble with no image. Is there anyway i can get and image inside my glass???

Please and Thank you
