182  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toybox Tuesday (11/16/10) on: November 16, 2010 07:29:14 PM
Hi Everyone! It's been a while since I've particpated in a Toybox Tuesday but a recent post by lanikins in the FOC boards inspired me to head this way and see if there were any adorable goodies in the Toybox this week.

It's pretty late on a Tuesday but technically still the 16th where I live so I thought I'd make a post since it didn't look like the Toybox was started for this week Smiley.

I made this cat/bat for my partner in the Mini-Halloween swap. It's a hybrid creature - half bat, half cat and it was inspired by a stuffie in the book, Plush-O-Rama.





Happy Tuesday! I hope others will share even though it might technically be Wednesday where you live Smiley.
183  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Embroidery Hoopla Round 3 on: November 14, 2010 08:07:19 AM
I'm having so much fun with Round 2 of the Hoopla. The gallery is shaping up to be just as awesome as Round 1!!

Thought I'd get the discussion going about Round 3.

Should we wait until after the holidays or try to do a small round in December?
184  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Ornaments on: November 07, 2010 03:47:12 PM
I made these ornaments for the Mini Halloween swap. My partner likes kitty cats Smiley.  They were inspired by similar x-mas themed patterns in the book, Fa La La La Felt.



Thanks for looking!
185  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Halloween Wall Quilt on: October 19, 2010 08:00:03 PM
I made this wall quilt for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap. She finally got to open it today!!

I wanted to make something Halloween-ey but not over the top so I tried to choose fabrics that were a bit more subtle. I used the Oh Frannson Mix Tape pattern (again). It's such a fantastic pattern for beginners like me Smiley.







Thank you for looking!

188  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein Clothespins on: September 20, 2010 07:59:45 PM
I've been having fun with clothespins and felt lately! I made this couple last night. They were very quick and easy and will be fun to have hanging around over halloween.



I made a pattern out of paper, cut the felt pieces, glued the pieces in place, embellished with a little embroidery and then glued the whole thing to a clothespin. I considered putting magnets on them but it's kind of fun to just clip them around the house (see below) Smiley.



Here is a picture of the back...

189  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Arrgghhh You Ready For Talk Like a Pirate Day? on: September 18, 2010 09:23:24 AM
I made this hoop for my partner in the Embroidery Hoopla swap and since tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day I thought I'd share it with all of you!

My partner likes pirates and giant squid so I worked with both of those themes. I cross-stitched the skull and cross bones and cut the squid from felt and embroidered them on.



I used onegroovyday's awesome tutorial to finish the back. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359164.msg4208747#msg4208747


I used this pattern for the skull motif: http://crossstitch.about.com/od/patternsfromyourguide/ig/Expressive-Motifs-Patterns/Small-Skull-and-Crossbones.htm

Ayyyy mateys - thanks for looking!

190  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Embroidery Hoopla Round 2?? on: September 14, 2010 12:16:01 PM
I know we're still having a great time with Hoopla Round 1 (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=355915.0) but I thought I'd go ahead and gauge interest for another round.

I was thinking of possibly starting in mid-October with a 2 week sign-up and 5 - 6 week crafting time. I know we start bumping into holidays around this time so we could also wait until the new year for round 2.

I'd be interested in hearing ideas for how to run the swap next time. I know there is interest in possibly having the option to send more than 1 hoop.

Let me know what you hoopers think!
