1  Ticker Tape quilt art (wall hanging thingy) in Quilting: Completed Projects by thingsivemade on: January 25, 2013 07:36:35 AM
I hope I have this in the right category!

 My fianc and I bought our first house recently, and I've been having a great time trying to make it really feel like home. There's not much art stuff on the wall apart from some boring flower art, which neither of us liked very much. So I took the frame and made a mini ticker tape quilt (complete with batting) using scraps from recent projects. Now it's something I actually want to look at Cheesy



 I will definitely be making more of these, it was extremely enjoyable Smiley
Sorry about the quality of the photo, it's super dark today!

2  Lots of quilts (IMG heavy!) in Quilting: Completed Projects by thingsivemade on: September 20, 2012 07:51:27 AM
I've been making a lot of quilts lately, but as I don't have very much space, I've been leaving a good few of them unfinished until I move house (and get my very own craft room, woo!) so please excuse the unfinished ones, I just wanted to show you Smiley

 Half Moon Modern charm pack by Moda:

 
 Irish chain quilt (one of the easiest quilts I've ever made!)


Chevron baby quilt (basically just using up scraps for this one)


String block quilt (paper pieced, so much ironing involved!)


My future mother in law loves the above string block quilt, so I decided to make her bag in the same style:


Spots & Stripes baby quilt (handquilted):


Hexagon quilt (made entirely from scraps, all completely sewn by hand, 667 hexagons!)


 Sorry about the overload of photos, I didn't actually realise how many freakin' quilts I've made recently!

3  Rocket ship - quilted pillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by thingsivemade on: January 29, 2012 11:55:15 AM
 I wasn't sure this belongs in the sewing board or here, so if someone could set me right, that'd be great!

 My fianc is currently very much in love with the quilty stuff that I make, and very often will stealthily acquire most of what I make. He's pretty sick and spends a lot of time lying down, so I suppose it's no real wonder why  Wink

 I got "Doodlestitching" by Aimee Ray recently, which has lots of lovely embroidery designs. I chose the rocket ship because of our love of Futurama, we've have been known to sing this song at each other: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KosPy6KH3-o&feature=related (it's from "Bender's Game" in case anyone wants to know)
 
 Front:

 Back:


 I stuffed it with fabric scraps, as I've been trying desperately to reduce my mountain of scraps. (Which is not going well, as it has grown instead of shrunk!)

 All C&C welcome Smiley

4  "Panda In New York" messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by thingsivemade on: December 26, 2011 07:29:17 AM
I started out with the intention of making a camera bag using a tutorial by fellow Craftster user lianatempera (this one to be specific http://creatinghappinessblog.blogspot.com/2010/02/padded-dslr-camera-bag-tutorial.html) but I got kinda lazy when I ran out of black velcro, so it's just a normal messenger bag.
 I bought the kawaii fabric from eBay, I wish I had bought more!



Front pockets:


The first inner zipper pocket I've made that actually worked!


Artsy shot of the interior, showing an inner pocket, keyhook and zipper closure (ran out of normal zips, so I used an invisible one instead):


 I'm really happy with how it turned out, although it still needs a strap as on Christmas eve, it caused my sewing machine to blow its fuse so it'll be a few days before I can truly finish it.

 I hope you like it, any C&C is welcome!

As promised, here's the Domo-kun tshirt!


I was doing the Domo-kun dance, hence my stupid expression  Grin

I received from hayleyhandmade, woo!

 First up, the beautiful card with a note from Hayley:


 Next up, we have LOADS of gorgeous cards, for birthdays, congratulations and Christmas (very tempted to keep these for myself!). You can't see them, but there's actually more cards than shown, but I have a limited photographing area.


A box filled with teeny tiny bags that have a chocolate in them (I love teeny tiny things!)


Oooh some handmade tea tree snowball soap! I'm a sucker for lovely smelling soaps and this smells like something out of my favourite shop Lush Grin


 Sorry about the shoddy picture-taking in this one but two gorgeous jewellery boxes!


 A new notebook, I adore the hearts!


 And for this next piece, Hayley tells me that her sewing machine wouldn't play nice so she asked if I could sew it instead. I have an addiction to both sewing and Domo-kun so I'm totally on board with this! It's going to be Domo-kun on a tshirt and yes, I will post pictures when I finish it!


 Thank you so much Hayley, I love it all! You're extremely talented Smiley

 Update: Whoops, almost forgot about the truffles! Nyom!

Yay, I received my package from mama24boyz and it's just made of WIN! And what better day than to get it on than on my birthday Smiley woo, cake on my profile and an awesome package!
 *takes a deep breath* I'm giddy as hell right now so I have to calm down a little to show you the pictures Cheesy

 First off is something that wasn't even on my questionnaire, but somehow mama24boyz just knew I'd love it...a Pac Man bracelet!


 A Rammy from Castle Crashers cross stitch magnet!


 A little Sackboy from Little Big Planet!


 Aaaaand....my very own Katamari Forver ball! It even has magnets so it can pick things up! I haven't tried it out yet, but I still love it!



 This swap has been so very awesome, I've loved it so much! Thank you mama24boyz, you're a very talented lady!

8  "Chomps & Vines" - Snakes & Ladders with a Mario twist in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by thingsivemade on: August 02, 2011 12:31:07 PM
I've been dying to show this ever since I made it, but it was for a Video Game Swap so I had to wait until my partner received. She got it and it was a big hit with her family so now I can show you guys!

 Ok, so it's basically Snakes & Ladders (or Chutes & Ladders to my North American Craftsters) but done in Mario style. Instead of going up ladders, you go up vines and instead of going down snakes (or chutes), you get eaten by the Chain Chomps.
 My partner has 5 kids and a husband so I made everyone a different coloured mushroom (the little pink one was for her first girl).



 I might make another one, but honestly it took 3 weekends to do so that could take a while!

9  From curtain to circle skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by thingsivemade on: June 14, 2011 01:14:14 AM
I think my creativity just died when I finished making this as I've been feeling pretty uninspired since. Long story Sad

 Anyways, the material is from a curtain that I bought in a charity shop and I edged it with a pretty turquoise ribbon. I don't have much of a story to this one, sorry for anyone who enjoys my rambling descriptions.



 I don't normally wear skirts so who knows when I'll actually ever wear this, but if I ever get a photo of me wearing it, I'll stick it up here Smiley

10  My first pinwheel quilt - aka "The Cursing Quilt" in Quilting: Completed Projects by thingsivemade on: May 22, 2011 12:48:07 PM
I have worked hard on this quilt for a few months now, and I'm really, really, really glad it's finished. I was beginning to hate this thing.
 Having encountered many problems along the way, I've learnt a few lessons.

1. I should have waited to get batting/wadding from a craftatorium. The Queen was in Dublin at the time and I didn't want to deal with the madness in town so I used the stuffing from a duvet. That stuff gets everywhere.

2. I definitely should have bought more safety pins as I only had a few and these crazy long pins that kept on stabbing me, often in the same place more than once.

3. I do not have the space to be working on projects this big. At all. I do all of my sewing in my bedroom and even if the room is clean, there's no floor space.

4. This goes with no. 3: I don't have a proper sewing area! I'm so insanely jealous of people who have their own crafting room, you lucky craftsters!

 Anyway, I've called this "The Cursing Quilt" due to an unbelievable amount of extremely creative swearing from me, particularly while quilting it. There's 70 pinwheels altogether,each pinwheel is a different fabric and it's backed with fleece. Not exactly a summer quilt but at least it's ready for the winter.
 I apologise in advance if this picture is not good, I'm working off my internet table at the moment.

 

I hope you like this, any comments appreciated!
