21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Snowy Owl pillowcases on: December 09, 2011 11:54:17 AM
It is an irruption for snowy owls this year; a favorite biological phenomenon in the Bakeneko household. When winter food supplies are low these arctic birds travel south in search of food and show up in unexpected places like Hawaii. To commemorate it I made Mr. Bakeneko Snowy Owl pillowcases.

Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones pot holders.

These are for a friend of mine birthday.   I had a hard time pulling this off. I tried appliqu and acrylic paint with textile medium which failed.  Sharpie. Sharpie with a freeze paper stencil.

Craft along of Threads: the Basics & Beyond: The Complete Visual Guide to Thread Techniques and Creativity in Projects and Embellishing


After Christmas I would like to work through this book, try all the techniques and complete the samples. I thought it would be fun if someone else wanted to do it at the same time. We could share photos of the projects.
Is anyone up for a Threads Craft along?

24  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Red Panda on: October 31, 2011 06:15:12 PM
Red Panda

This year Mr. Bakeneko and I were Red Pandas for Halloween. Unfortunately my camera will not download so I only have Mr. Bakenekos photos, which do not include him.  We went to the pumpkin enrichment at the Potter Park Zoo.
I am particularly proud of the mask, although they are not a bespectacled girls friend.

No matter how early your start a costume, you will always in up sewing part of it on the way there.  I had to attack the mask ties in the car.  The mask are made of fleece, felt, fake fur, heavy dutry interfacing and glue lots of glue.  They are tied with elastic or twill tape.  The tails are basically pouches with a belt loop. They are made of fleeces. You can see that colors are off but its a close are JoAnns get to Red Panda red.

25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Light a Finch for me. on: February 12, 2011 10:51:28 AM
Light a Finch for me.  The whole Nikki paints glass thing is Tashas fault, a former student and friend. I posted on facebook and asked for someone to save me during the super bowl and Tasha said she would pray to Darwin for me. So I replied Light a Finch for me.  The next day I wanted to make a finch candle but I dont have a finch mold just lying around but I do have glass paint. So I whipped out the candle holder before I had to go to work.  Then it just evolved to glasses.  I painted these yesterday. I had to wait until today to take pictures so they could dry. Today is  Darwins 202nd Birthday.  So Happy Birthday Darwin, 202, Ill drink to that.

26  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Printing on fabric longevity on: January 07, 2011 02:06:27 PM

Does anyone know how printing on fabric from a personal computer and printer (regular cannon) wears over time and how the fabric behaves in a quilt? Which printable fabric packets would you recommend, sheer cotton more like canvas?
27  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Snails in my garden-Irish Chain on: November 17, 2010 06:06:05 PM
This is my first quilt. It is your basic Irish chain. I named it snails in my garden.  It is hand tied with polyester batting.

It is not perfect by any means and I am sure there are mistakes I dont even know enough about quilting to see; but I have slept under it for two nights and have had no technical difficulties.  I think it is safe to day it works.  There may be too many pictures for a simple Irish chain but I am quite proud.
28  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / narwhals narwhals swimming in the ocean on: November 03, 2010 06:25:19 AM

So basically these costumes are pillows shaped like fins and safety pinned to our coats. This is a good costume method if you dont know how cold it is going to beforehand, and need to travel in it.  The horns are made of rolled card stock cones with muslin glue over it and held on with an elastic and stapled head band.  Cheap and comfortable. We wore them to the zoo for pumpkin enrichment.

29  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Loon Journal Cover, 1st Anniversary gift. on: October 31, 2010 07:03:47 PM

Are you broke?
Do you need a gift that says I love you?
Do you have one scrap piece of tooling leather and a wood burner?
Well make a journal cover girl.
I made this for my husband for our 1st anniversary, which was yesterday. I had to work on it in secret and have been waiting to show it off. This what a one shot thing because I did not have any more leather.  I am glad of how the burning turned out. I wish the lacing what better.  If anyone has any suggestions, resources or book I should know about please let me know. This is a tough cover so he can take it into the field and now the writing will have some protection.  The image is a common loon.
