1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Tribbles have invaded my condo! (with pattern) on: August 23, 2016 07:35:21 AM
Thank you so much for this pattern! Thanks to you, I was able to make tribbles for a fundraiser that I'm doing for the Wisconsin chapter of the National MS Society. I was also able to modify the pattern to make soot sprites like the ones seen in Studio Ghibli movies like My Neighbor Tototoro and Spirited Away. More details on my fundraising as well as more pictures can be found on my blog here: https://technicolorlilypond.wordpress.com/2016/08/22/tribbles-and-troubles/ I have multiple sclerosis. Because my disease really affected my hands, it is harder for me to craft than it used to be. I persevere but it sucks and I'm dedicated to fundraising for a cure and to support the programs the society does to help people like me. Having an easy to use pattern like this was so very helpful.

Here are some soot sprites around our event poster for a fundraiser we did in July:

And here are some tribbles and soot sprites helping me count the money we raised from the July fundraiser:

I used my sewing machine to sew the tribbles and soot sprites but I hand-stitched their openings closed after stuffing them with poly-fiberfil. For the soot sprites, I shrunk the tribble pattern to about 3/4 size and I embroidered the eyes using black embroidery floss on white felt ovals. Each sprite has a slightly different expression but I think that only adds to their charm. Because I only made 10 full size soot sprites, I raffled them off at our July fundraiser and was shocked at how popular of a raffle prize a single soot sprite proved to be.

Anyway, thanks again. Thanks to you I was able to raise a lot of money for my team and I'm still raising money with the tribbles.  Smiley

That's so pretty! Did you design the tiger pattern yourself?

Love the fabrics!  Cheesy  Any chance of an opened-out view?  *puppy eyes*  I love the idea of quillows, but haven't made one yet; they fascinate me.  Smiley

Yeah! I will try to post one this weekend. I was in a hurry to post the picture on my blog so I didn't take my usual cadre of shots. I should probably post more pictures anyone. So far the only ticket purchaser I've had has been my mom.  Undecided Oh well.

I'm glad you like the fabrics! I think they match well together. Smiley
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bags of Holding! For your dice and mobile 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
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Book Quillow! 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!

Spaceballs bibs!!! How awesome! You know I'm secretly thinking the puppy one is a nod to John Candy's character. Wink

Haha! I didn't even think of that but maybe you're right. The friends in question have a French bulldog so I thought they'd like that fabric. I'm glad that you like them.  Smiley

Is there a way to move this thread to Needlework? Should it be moved to Needlework? I put it here because I was in a rush and I didn't look around properly.

The second 'hello my baby' one is hysterical!! What an awesome collection.

Thank you! I'm glad somebody gets the joke. I worked really hard on these, I'm glad you like them.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / SPACEBALLS the baby bibs! 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

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

Oh I have been wanting to order from Spoonflower! What do you think of their quality?

I like their quality a lot. All of the fabric I have purchased from them has been lovely quality and a joy to work with. If it wasn't so understandably expensive, I would order from them more. 

awesome bag!

Thank you!  Smiley

Oh that is beautiful!

Thank you very much! I can't take credit for the fabric though, I found it on Spoonflower. I think it did come together well though.
