1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Crazy quilting block swap? on: September 30, 2011 08:29:01 AM
Hi all
I recently found crazy quilting - great for those who want to use up small bits of fabric and are rubbish at cutting acurately and want instant results - like me!
I thought maybe make 10 quilt blocks x2 partners (so 5 to each)?  Anybody up for it?

http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art23942.asp  for info on how to do it. The pic shows a block with added lace etc but I would prefer to keep it simple - just fabric.  Could specify any colour ways etc in questionnaire.

Also, I don't know what size block would be best - 7 inch?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Apron gifts for Mum & daughter on: November 03, 2010 06:12:24 AM
I came up with an idea for a pressie for a friend in our Mums' group who turned 30, her daughter turned 2 and they are moving away next month.  We used tipnut.com and one of my own aprons for patterns and traced one hand from all our kids (about 20 in total), used iron on applique bonding and zigzag stick around each hand so they stay on in the wash.  My friend who helped me also then embroidered the kids' initial so the hands are identifiable. Jemma loved them - I can tell because she burst into tears.  Something similar would be a great xmas gift perhaps?

3  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween pinata on: October 01, 2010 07:12:55 AM

I'm organising a Halloween party for toddlers.  Hubby has volunteered to make a pinata for the party.  Just wondered if anyone has any practical advice?
Seen a bat pinata on Martha Stewart website which looks like a possibility.

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Help pls - how do I sew arms onto ugly doll/monster plushie? on: October 06, 2009 02:13:47 PM
Hi all - just making my first plushie.  Initially the whole body - stumpy legs and arms - were 1 pattern but I had to cut the arms off when I tried pulling it right side out as the arms were too narrow to pull through.  So I made some arms (actually they're now wings) which I have stuffed and ready to sew on.   But I'm stuck - how do I do this best so that the stitches don't show & which stitch should I use?
