1  Bags of Holding! For your dice and mobile in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by froggirl02 on: September 08, 2015 11:20:11 PM
For the last few weeks I have been furiously sewing trying to finish crafts for a raffle. I finally finished everything this holiday weekend. I made the dice bags below with my own pattern and quilting cotton. Overall, I'm very pleased with how they turned out.



I also made a small wristlet style holder for a mobile phone with pre-quilted cotton, bias tape, and velcro. I'm not as pleased with how it turned out but it is cute fabric.



Please put all comments and questions below. Thanks for looking! Smiley

2  Book Quillow! in Quilting: Completed Projects by froggirl02 on: September 08, 2015 11:13:18 PM
I have been furiously sewing to finish crafts for a fundraising raffle for a cause I'm involved in.

Here is probably the fastest quillow I have ever made in all its reading themed glory.



It is all cottons. I quilted it with stitch-in-the-ditch and it is sewn to a micro plush throw. All comments and questions appreciated, thanks for looking!

3  SPACEBALLS the baby bibs! in Completed Projects by froggirl02 on: June 14, 2015 05:43:00 PM
A friend of ours had a baby and I decided that a nerdy baby bib was called for. Since this friend is a huge fan of Spaceballs by Mel Brooks, I made two baby bibs based on key points in the film. I also made a normal cute bib with puppy fabric so that his wonderful non-nerdy S.O. doesn't hate us. Picture time!

All three together:



Puppy one


Masterpiece:

I can talk more about patterns, techniques, etc. if anyone is interested. Thanks for the feedback and I hope you've enjoyed the pictures!

4  Fountain Pen Roll-up in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by froggirl02 on: February 10, 2015 08:19:07 AM
I hope this is the best category to post this project. I think my fountain pen roll-up is a sort of wallet for pens, that is my logic here anyway.

I am a big fan of fountain pens. I am not a big fan of ugly plastic sandwich bags to tote my pens in, especially since that is not the best way to store pens for best ink flow. So, I made up the following creation wholly from my imagination. It is cotton on the outside and oil cloth on the inside for easy wiping of any ink splotches and to give the roll-up some structure. Pictures!

Inside view (with pens & sticky notes):


Back view:


Close-up interior:



All rolled up!


I love that it stands upright and I think it turned out looking pretty sharp. Any comments or questions? Thanks for looking! :-)

5  Star Trek Quillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by froggirl02 on: February 09, 2015 08:53:04 AM
Hello! I know it has been a long time since I posted here but I've been really sick. Before I fell ill, I finished making this quillow for my brother. It is a quilted cotton pocket and a fleece blanket. I will be posting more of the details on my blog later this week but I wanted to share here on Craftster first. Picture time!

This is the Quillow folded up.



Here are close-ups of the quilting, I did the captain's insignia by hand.




Here is the back:


And here is the blanket:


Thanks for any questions or comments! I hope you like the quillow.  Smiley

6  Doctor Who Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by froggirl02 on: July 14, 2014 09:39:47 PM
It has been a while since I posted on Craftster. I've had a lot of health troubles in the last 18 months and for a while I could not craft at all. I have been wanting to share this project here because it is the first project I was able to make after my troubles and I think it actually turned out really well.

I am a big fan of the show Doctor Who, both old & new, and, in order to attend the 50th anniversary screening in theaters in style, I made myself this bag:

I quilted the swirls and the TARDIS using glow in the dark thread. The strap is black belting with brass rings.

Here is the back (sorry about the angle):

                                                         I love that it has an extra pieced look to it due to the panel design of that fabric on the left.

Because the TARDIS is bigger on the inside I figured only the universe would do for a lining: You can see the small pocket I made for the hand sanitizer one always needs when going on adventures with a madman in a blue box.

I made up the pattern but it is basically just a simple rectangle. The clasp is magnetic. I used these fabrics: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/481155 & the blue box fabric on the back is from the same site but it is apparently no longer available to purchase. I supplemented these expensive fabrics with pieces from my stash that matched.

Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoyed my bag.  Smiley

Awesome job, froggirl!

Thanks, MareMare! Here are a bunch of thumbnails of my quilted projects. Hopefully this weekend I will do a proper project thread about them.











Above you can see pictures of the Quillows I made for loved ones, the quilted ornaments in progress (I didn't take a picture of the finished ones unfortunately), and some potholders I made too. Whew! Now on to 2013!  Cheesy

8  Jar Wedding Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by froggirl02 on: July 15, 2012 12:59:53 PM
I finished a quilt this week that I have been working on for three years. One of my dearest friends got married three years ago but since it was a short engagement she knew that the wedding quilt I was planning to give her would take a while. Life happened but at long last I have finished the project. I made up the design to use different kinds of blocks and to use as many fabrics as possible that I thought she and her hubby would like. It is very scrappy and eclectic as a result. I'm just glad that it's only ~twin size rather than queen, if it had been any larger I don't know when I would have finished it.

All finished:


Closeup of some of the pieces. Note the homemade green binding.


Closeup of the quilted texture. I used an allover pattern in olive green. I did the quilting myself on my home machine using a darning foot, quilter gloves, and lots of grumbling when the thread snapped. All of the jars are zig-zagged down using glow-in-the-dark thread and I tied them in the center with glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss. Hopefully it adds an extra touch of magic.


I also made her a storage sack in which to keep the quilt.


So there it is. Comments and critiques appreciated, hope you enjoy it! Cheesy

I have finished another quilt from my list! Cheesy So I have three done in 2012, only 11 to go. Tongue

I will shortly post a thread about it in the quilting section but here is a picture:




1. Wedding quilt for my friend, Abs (2 years overdue...)  <--Done!!!  Cheesy
2. Recycled flannel shirt split rail quilt for my hubby (3 years overdue...   ), I've got half the top pieced and most all the fabrics cut out. It is queen size. <--Done!!!  Cheesy
3. Queen size quilt of all animal novelty fabrics. I have it mostly cut out. The pattern looks like this: http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/projects-ideas/bed-quilts/splashes-of-color_1.html, only I'm using black fat quarters to sash a small fussy-cut square of different animal novelty fabrics for the block.
4. I want to make this quilt pattern http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/projects-ideas/throws-wall-hangings/simple-sashing-rectangles_1.html using fabrics from Laura Gunn's Magnolia Lane collection of fabric. I have it mostly cut-out but I still have to cut out all the sashing strips.
5. & 6. I'm making this quilt http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/techniques/piecing/sew-easy_ss1.html for my parents and for my elder brother. Again, I have it cut out but I need to piece it. Sense a theme?  
7. & 8. & 9. Quillows for my two grandmas-in-law and my grandparents

10  Re: Novelty Fabric Fat Quarter Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by froggirl02 on: July 05, 2012 07:22:46 PM
I received my final package today from Mod35tBabe. I'll tell you, fabric therapy is the best. I had a lousy day at work and it was fantastic to get a package full of fantastic fabrics when I got home. Smiley I've get pictures below. I'm flipping off the walls about the first two fabrics.

Look! Lizards! Lots and lots of awesome lizards! Be still my herpetologist heart, they are adorable and I love the colors. Cheesy

Look at the texture of that purple. It is mesmerizing and it will go perfectly with a table runner I have planned. Squee! Extra excitement over the cute little sewing machine charm too, I am now scheming what sort of project I can add it to.

Owls! They are so cute.

Here is the whole kaboodle. Note the adorable flower print that Mod35tBabe was kind enough to throw in as an extra.


Thank you so much, Mod35tBabe. This was a fabulous way to end the day and this great swap. I am so happy that my first swap went so well and I feel so spoiled by all my wonderful partners. Woot! for Group 2!  Cheesy
