1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Recycled Sweater into a Stocking! on: December 28, 2013 07:39:49 AM
For my stocking partner I found a sweater at Goodwill and recycled it into a winter stocking. I loved the color and it screamed snow day!

I used the turtleneck for the top band added some snowflake buttons,  pom-pom trim and added a snowflake necklace and earrings to dress it up!

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Chair leg snowmen on: December 23, 2013 06:21:03 AM
These can be picked up at a lumber yard unfinished.  You don't have to destroy a chair.

Remove the screw that will attach them to a chair and they will sit flat!  Drill a small hole for the toothpick nose and then get to painting.  The top hat is black, the body white, and the base your choice of color.  A few details and then a fleece scrap for a neck warmer!  The final detail is to spay with sealer and add some dimensional glitter snow!

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Dry brushed Santa on: December 23, 2013 06:05:01 AM
Just a quick post of a ceramic Santa that I sent to my partner in the mini 12 days of Christmas. He stands about 12 inches high.  This piece was cast from a mold fired to bisque then painted entirely black.   I dry brushed the layers of colors to bring Santa to life.  He also has a clip lite to make his stove light up so he can warm his buns!!!!  and his feline friend to keep his company!

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Doctor Who Chess Set on: December 14, 2013 08:14:14 PM
As I stalked my partner for the Christmas stocking swap I found she had a peg chess set on pinterest so I decided what a neat stocking stuffer, all the peg pieces in a drawstring tote, perfect for a stocking.  Since I am a hoarder of all things crafty I happened to have a game box that was the perfect gift to add as an extra.  I set out with a slew of peg people in an attempt to duplicate her pin,  Here are the results. 

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Spool Gingerbread Ornaments on: December 14, 2013 12:37:45 PM
I was in several Christmas swaps and sent out a few of these quick and easy gingerbread men ornaments!  So fun to make.

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Door Quilt full of Craftster love on: April 15, 2013 06:33:25 AM
I did a personal swap with ladybugsandbumblebe es.  She requested a door quilt to help solve a problem that she was having and thought this might help create a sound barrier.  I was given the freedom to create whatever I wanted.  I decided to use a lot of things that I knew she liked and bring the spring indoors.  This quilt will hang from a door.  The 3 D items are things I have collected along my journey here on craftster from prior swaps so I want to give credit to the following:

sarahelise....croch eted butterfly
ladybugsandbumblebe es......frog button

I sewed on all the buttons, bees, ladybugs and frog so they can be washed.  The flower stems are made from ribbon or ric rac and sewn too.  The felt birdhouse is suspended from a chain and removable for washing along with those 3D items that are safety pinned from the back.

Hoping this solves her problem if not at least she has a decorative door!!!!! Grin

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Burlap Lunch Totes on: April 02, 2013 05:32:01 PM
These super quick burlap lined lunchtotes use an elastic ponytail holder to secure to the button.  The handle allows it to be easily carried!  Made for Glasskicker in the spell my name swap.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Dressed Milk Crates on: April 02, 2013 05:26:39 PM
A fun storage container completely changed when dressed up.  Office depot sells these as well as Walmart and numerous other places.  Also fits the milk crates!  These sew together really quick!   They were made for my Spell My Name Swap partner Glasskicker! I also bought a smaller version of the plastic crate at the dollar store for a buck that will be perfect for fat quarters, thread, buttons, bathroom caddy's, the list goes on and on.

The second one was vintage fabric that I scored at Goodwill!
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Burlap and chevron lined tote on: April 02, 2013 05:15:01 PM
Here's a cute tote made from burlap fabric for Glasskicker in a recent swap! Simple yet fun!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Monster Apron on: March 30, 2013 08:35:22 AM
My last partner in the crafty detective swap loves monsters, so I decided since one request she had was an apron to use Butterick pattern 5693 and do some fabric stash busting.  This is the end result.  Super simple to make.
