1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Up-Inspired Passport Cover on: November 23, 2015 05:24:14 PM
I recently made this for the Passport Cover swap for CraftyMamaBee. I saw an adorable Up hoopla on her Pinterest and absolutely had to make my own. Such an appropriate theme for traveling, right?

Mostly hand embroidered, with some applique balloons.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rainbow Catching Butterflies Fingerless Gloves on: October 14, 2015 09:51:27 AM
This is the second pair of fingerless gloves that I made using the Catching Butterflies pattern from Woodland Knits, but without the butterflies added this time (and I haven't taken pictures of the first pair Tongue). I picked up the rainbow striping yarn on sale last time I went to Joann's and absolutely loved the mottled bits of colors in each of the stripes. I wasn't completely excited how the stripes turned out in the gloves, but it was pretty enough. I forgot to change needle sizes after doing the ribbing on the first glove, so I wound up just making them a bit small and giving them to my niece. She was with me on a cruise in August, so after I finished them up, we just took a couple of quick photos from the balcony of the room my in-laws were in, so please excuse the weird background.

3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Needle-Felted Jack the Border Collie on: October 12, 2015 05:39:14 PM
This was a gift I made for an acquaintance as a sort of thank you for being invited to a super cool event for the last couple years. It is a "portrait" of a favorite dog on the farm. He was a super old doggie when I met Jack, and sadly passed before I finished this project. 

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Boxy Pencil Pouches on: October 11, 2015 09:54:56 AM
My local crafting group occasionally organizes craft swaps that areround-robin style. This summer, we decided to a do a bulk, make-what-you-want swap where we each made the same small item for all the members in the swap. There are seven of us total that participated, and I decided to make a boxy pencil pouch from the blog I found below. These were a lot of fun, but some of the piecing and quilting took longer than expected, so I exceed the recommended time range (whoops Wink). I went ahead and made an extra pouch so I had one to keep for myself so there were seven total pouches. Smiley

Tutorial from http://pinkxstitches.blogspot.com/2014/01/boxy-pouch-tutorial.html

I might have cheated a little and used paper stuffed into some of the pouches for better "shape" while taking pictures Wink It was a pain getting all that fluff back inside to recycle.

5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Hiram McDaniels, literally a five-headed, needle-felted Dragon on: October 11, 2015 09:41:37 AM
I made this guy for the Welcome to Night Vale swap earlier this year. Welcome to Night Vale is my favorite podcast about an amazingly nerdy sci-fi-ish world. This is the character Hiram McDaniels, literally a five-headed dragon. Each of his five heads has a different personality, so I also gave them all unique horns (which glow in the dark as an added bonus feature Wink). I got one of the head colors wrong after looking at too much fan art with the wrong colors, but oh well. He is still recognizable. His heads and tale had wire armature for some light posing.

And here's all the other Night Vale swap I sent/made but will have to get around to posting about later:

6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Minty Striped Needle-felted Dachshund on: October 11, 2015 09:32:47 AM
I don't know how I missed uploading this last year! I made this little guy for LimeRiot for the IYP R27 swap and the end of 2014. I was going through all my photos from the year because I have been extremely negligent on posting my projects lately, and saw these photos of a dachshund that I never posted. Whoops! He's just a little decoration for a shelf or something. I should have put a ribbon on him so he could be an ornament. Oh well.

he background in these photos has me excited for fall to really get going, too.

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I don't love you much, do I? Embroidered Hoop on: May 25, 2015 04:02:41 PM
One of my very good friends is expecting her first child in a month. As well as a pair of applique fox pillows, I also made her this embroidered hoop to add to a collection that will hang on her baby's nursery. The lyric is from a Guy Clark song that she and her husband always quote to each other. The colors match the baby nursery. My favorite part is the little bee Smiley The border is just a design that I free-handed for this purpose.

And this was the first time I used "made by" labels on something! Smiley I did a loose stitching on the back so that it would be easy to take the needlework off the hoop if she wanted to do something different with it later.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Applique Fox Pillows with Quilted Back on: May 05, 2015 07:51:53 PM
I finally am really getting back into the swing of crafting after a several month hiatus to study for a licensure exam I took in April. These pillows were a gift for a good friend that is expecting her first child this summer. We share a love for all things foxy, and when she showed me a couple of applique fox pillows she found online, I knew exactly what I was making her! Smiley The fabrics are all in the colors she is using for her baby's nursery.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Upcycled Felted Sweater Bear Rug Coasters on: March 09, 2015 05:44:24 PM
I made this delightful set of coasters inspired by many bear rug coasters seen on Etsy/Pinterest for a friend in a local/private craft swap a couple months ago. They are each made with a double layer of machine felted wool sweaters with hand-embroidered face details. Unfortunately my memory card got fried before I took my finished photos of them and after I had given them away, so here are some donated photos from my friend and some photos from my phone camera (sorry for sad quality! Pretend you can tell they have sleepy little eyes). They now live in an art studio where they are getting much great usage!!
