91  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Lickity Moose Stamp on: June 14, 2011 01:59:52 PM
This is a stamp I carved recently (after discovering that I couldn't stop carving stamps)... The actual stamp has someone's name on it, but I didn't roll the ink on the name for my test drive (the name belonged to the friend that I gifted it to Smiley )

I probably could have done a better job with the ink. Oh well!

92  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / One long weekend of linocutting! on: June 05, 2011 04:37:50 PM
So this weekend I knocked one thing off my to-do list: carve a stamp for making labels for the mead my fiance will be making for our wedding! And then became hopelessly hooked on carving linoleum and make a couple extras Smiley

Here is the label I made for the mead: (I added watercolor after stamping for bonus effects!)

I plan to clean it up a little so that the printing it easier to read....

Here is an extra bumble bee that I might use for thank you or return cards aaaand an adorable little owl on a branch <3 :

This one I did about a month ago to practice when I decided to bring linocutting back into my life for wedding purposes:
93  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ocean scene fleece scarf on: January 07, 2009 08:32:24 PM
So here is another one of my fleece scarf projects. This time an ocean themed scarf. It was a gift for my neighbor, but I like it so much I might do another one, but with a mermaid.

My favorite part was the lion fish on one side:

The rest included an octopus, two seahorses, some yellow tang, a buoy, and a sail boat:

The middle part was all cloudy to add some thickness to the neck. Each shade of blue was supposed to represent a kind of layer of the water, so the very top is sky.

If you look carefully, you can see that the designs in the lowest layer are made up of skulls and crossbones.  Grin

I really loved this scarf, but the layers kinda made it really stiff. So when worn, it didn't really move much.... But I still liked how it looked... I don't know how to fix that issue.

Thanks for checking it out!
94  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Peace and Love scarf and Fleece Rapunzel scarf on: December 22, 2008 02:34:34 PM
So here are a couple more scarves that I made as gifts for the holidays. For some reason, I have become addicted to them. I love working with fleece since making my Fat Cat and other scarves and such.

First up is a stripped fleece version of the every-so-popular Rapunzel scarf. I took several different colored fleece fabrics and cut them into different widths, and then added what little ribbon and yarn I had. It isn't as whimsical as other scarves, but on a tight budget, it seemed more practical. I have been wanting to make one for a while but without spending a small fortune on yarn. So ta-dah!

Let me know what you think:

And I found this awesome hippie looking fleece in the remnants at Jo-ann's yesterday with my bf's mom. She loved it, so I made her a scarf with it. It is doubled over in thickness with a top stitch. She really loves no-sew blankets and ruffles and tassels, so I cut the ends and tied the like a no-sew item. I know... it is kinda of going backwards after using a sewing machine, but whatever.

95  COOKING / Dessert / Church Windows! on: December 15, 2008 10:30:06 AM
So I was looking around online and could not for the life of me find a picture of this holiday dessert to show my friends a while back. My mom has been making them every Thanksgiving and Christmas that I can remember, and they are soooo easy. And everyone always loves them.

All it takes is a bag of chocolate chips, a stick of butter, a bag of mini multicolored marshmallows (which are the hardest things in the world to find, but usually Super Walmart carries them), and a bag of shredded coconut.

You can just microwave the chocolate and butter for about two minutes then mix until it is smooth, or use a double boiler. After cooling for about 5 minutes, mix the marshmallows in. While waiting for the chocolate to cool, prepare some foil by sprinkling about a foot wide rectangle of coconut to pour the mix on.

When ready, just dump the chocolate/marshmallows in a log shape across the coconut.

Then freeze for an hour or two... or less. I never leave them in as long as they should and they come out fine. Also, this makes two logs.

When done freezing, take them out and slice them a little less than an inch thick. Ta-dah! Stained-glass church windows with a light snow on the edges. Enjoy!
96  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tree Scarf and Muffin Scarf on: December 14, 2008 09:51:04 PM
This was a really fun scarf I made for a friend for Christmas. It took no time to make. I saw something like this somewhere else, but I don't remember where or who, so if you know, tell me and I will add credit to that person.

This is all fleece, which is really fun because you don't have to worry about hemming and stuff!

There are little branches and leaves and flowers all added over the original layer of fleece. A zigzag stitch trims the outside and straight stitches trim the added things.

I also made this muffin scarf for another friend. It isn't as fancy, but my other friend always told that silly muffins in the oven joke when we were in high school. So I turned a plain rectangle of fleece into a muffin scarf.

97  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The Beatles Apron! on: December 14, 2008 09:40:55 PM
For Christmas I made one of my really awesome friends an apron. We both really like the Beatles, so this was way too much fun and pretty easy even though I had no patterns to go by. All of the fabric was random remnants and scraps from previous projects. The tie goes on the side instead of the back so that you can see the bow when wearing it. The yellow submarine is made of furry stuff, and the octopus is fleece. Both are ironed on with fusible stuff. The flowers are pieces of fake flowers with random fabric circles under buttons. The main fabric is a pink/black mix, but it is hard to tell in the harsh lighting of the photo.

I was going to do hearts and strawberries on it too, but ran out of time because our Christmas party was last night.

And yes, the octopus is really something like a hectapus. Oh well.

98  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fat Ella- stuffed cat on: December 14, 2008 01:41:04 PM
I made a big stuffed cat that is a replica of my best friend's actual cat. We are away at college, so this was a Christmas gift for her because she can't have pets anymore. Our Christmas get together with a few friends was last night, so she already got it and really loved it. Smiley

I made her from scratch without any patterns. The reference photos I used are linked at the bottom.

I didn't take a back side picture or one to get an idea of the size, so here is one after she opened it:

I had a couple of pictures of the cat on my deviantART:

And here is a random picture online that I got the pose from:
99  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Help! My fleece is jamming in the machine. on: December 11, 2008 03:43:45 PM
My sewing machine is very fond of pulling fleece under the needle plate causing nasty jams and sometimes breaking the needle or making big holes in the fabric. It requires some tugging to remove the fleece.

Does anyone have any solutions to this?

My machine only two or three years old, and it is a Singer CG-550.
100  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Turn metal tin without hinge into wallet? on: December 08, 2008 08:47:44 PM
I got a cute Charlie Brown gift card holder from Walmart the other day and wanted to turn it into a sort of wallet. Does anyone have ideas as to how I can add a hinge? Or something else that will hold it shut...

I also want to line it was felt or something. What is the best way to fasten/glue fabric to metal?
