171  Ice Cube Tie-Dye Mini Tute in Dyeing: Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: September 21, 2012 09:34:07 AM
Inspiration for this post comes from Carol R. Eaton Designs and this blog post: http://carolreatondesigns.blogspot.com/2012/02/fabric-dye-ice-cubes-awesome.html

Once I saw her awesome effects of dyeing with ice cubes, I knew I had to give it a try. It was super fun and easy!

Here's what I did:

I used a big jersey knit sheet as my fabric and coiled about half in the bottom of a mop bucket. Since I used RIT to dye, I did not pre-soak my fabric. I then placed a layer of ice cubes on the fabric and covered with powdered RIT dye (about half a box). I coiled the second half of my sheet on top of the ice layer and repeated the ice/RIT layers. The end result is a fabric/ice/dye lasagna:



After 24 hours, the ice melts, leaving behind a splattering of color. The powder works especially well with this method as the dye component colors bleed out and together, giving really unique and unexpected results.

In my first round of this, I used brown, black, and teal in my powder layer:



Round two was black and blue:



I can't wait to try this with different colors!! I have some green just waiting for the perfect fabric!

Thanks for looking!

I made my son a vest for a wedding we went to this past weekend. I'm pretty happy with how it came out considering my first attempt was WAY too big and I had to re-sew my side seams and create a seam down the back to get rid of the excess width. In the final product you can see the re-sewn seams on the inside of the vest (not my nice, neat lining!), but only I knew about that!



And here's a dancing action shot from later in the night. He was the life of the party, lol. Though he usually is.

I think my transfiguration went a little awry. My beetles are buttons, but they are shaped like dinosaurs!! Whoops! Don't think I'll be getting that A after all... Tongue

I embroidered the hand prints of my son, my husband, and myself. I got the idea from Pinterest, but now I'm not sure what to do with the embroidered fabric. Pillow cushion? Wall hanging? I want to do something different. Any ideas?

That Frankie ATC is pretty awesome and I love the stuffed Spike!

Kookaloo_Starr and I added some extras to our prayer flag swap a little while ago. I received this awesome package today!!

The best two Teesha Moore Patches ever:



And a absolutely beautiful spirit doll. K_Starr called her "Dance Like Nobody is Watching." AND she painted the fabric herself with oil pastels and sealed it. Isn't she just perfect?



Thank you sooooo much, Kookie!! I love everything.

Thanks jilly and pinkleo - I hope your kind words are an indication for how my friends feel about their gift!

And because I so covet that Quidditch badge, here's one more for me!

Project Name: Cultivate Love Prayer Flag
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)

Yay for quick and fun challenges to get things off my "to-do" list! I made this for the Oceanside Museum of Art Prayer Flag Project. I'll be sending this flag out to California to reflect my hopes and dreams for the future. I chose "cultivate love" because I hope that more people in the future cultivate a sense of personal responsibility for the thoughts and emotions they choose to feed both within themselves and in others. I hope that this awareness transforms our world for the better.

This flag took me about an hour using scraps from my dye pile, my sewing machine, and some letter stamps.

This was a joint effort with my husband, de6w6it. Two of our good friends are getting married this weekend, so we decided to collaborate on making their gift.

The focus of this project is a tree, carved with our friend's initials and with fall leaves for the season. The metal hangar is welded to look like a tree branch with a heart.

I hope they love it Smiley

177  "Fall in Love" Wall Hanging in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Abbeeroad on: September 11, 2012 06:12:37 AM
A couple of my husband's and my good friends are getting married this weekend. We both wanted to contribute to a hand-made gift for them rather than than the usual registry list gift.

I made a wall hanging Teesha Moore style with an embroidered tree with their initials carved in the trunk and fall leaves to reflect the time of year they are getting married. I also added the date to the bottom.

My husband, de6w6it, made the metal hanger for the piece. He bent and welded metal rod to look like a tree branch with a heart.

I hope they love it.





Thanks for looking!

I just received my wonderful package from AttieNichole!!

Here's everything:



Close ups of the little pouch and scrubbies!! Both of these items are so so cool. The pouch is so sturdy and well made, and the color is perfect! I'm not sure what I'll use it for yet, but I just love it. The little keychain is perfect. And the scrubbies are much needed and appreciated!! I love functional items, and I'm trying my best to go green. Great stalking AttieNichole  Wink



And a closer shot of the art piece. I just love this! Can't wait for it to have a place of honor in my craft space.



Thanks so much!!!!  Grin
