Wow, LM! You officially take the prize for most projects in 1 post- I've never had all the tabs I open to pin things not fit at the top of my screen before Cheesy I love those cards, the fabric baskets, your new purse, and the doll. He is super impressive!

Wonderful box, Inselaeffchen!

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Lil' Monster
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I started making this- the blue and green monster, not the dalek Smiley -for the little traveler swap, but it just wasn't turning out the way I wanted. My mother was ooing over him, though, so now he's hers.

Project Name: Lil' Traveler

Brief Description: After try #1, this guy came along. He went through several versions. I kept trying to make him fancier, but it just wasn't working. I think he's kinda cute.

Project Name: Lil' Traveler's Tin
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My first altoid tin decorating project, but I've had a bunch in my stash forever. I tried paper. I tried yarn. I tried beads. Then I raided my stash of my favorite supply and the one I'm most used to working with: Fabric! There's some yarn, too, that was leftover from another project. So was the glue.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Wockets in Pockets
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I'm not a Dr. Seuss fan. There, I said it. Nothing against him, I just don't care for his books and never have. I do, however, love Monsters, Inc. which takes place- mostly -in the city of Monstropolis. So, for Dr. Seuss day, I decorated the classroom door with construction paper and goggly eye monsters in pockets, a la There's a Wocket in My Pocket for others, but, for me, a la Monster's Inc- but not nearly as cool.

3  More Exploding Etuis in Completed Projects by Calabaza on: February 14, 2015 09:36:38 AM
Christmas was a while ago, but with life and all my friends and I take a while to meet up and exchange gifts.

This exploding etui went to D:










This one went to E:











D. and E. love to craft. I've found these boxes incredibly handy for storing things. I made theirs 4"x4"x2", tall enough to comfortably store thread on its side. The grommet tape works great for storing blunt-tipped needles! The weave is loose enough but not too much so. I'm certain they can think of other uses as well.

Here's a tutorial if you want to try making your own. No sewing required!

All hail kale!  Smiley

Project Name: Neverending Macaron
Project Link: not yet
Brief Description: For the Winter Nerd Battles Swap. It was a blast! I finally was able to swap with Smeddley (who, it turns out, does not have a cat.) I was rather intimidated. She hinted at wanting a macaron, though, so I made her one inspired by The Neverending Story.

Aw, thanks! Smeddley, I am so happy you're happy with your things! I'm thrilled with mine!

After snapping some pics while the sun was still peeking out and wrangling technology into submission, here's what Smeddley was wonderful enough to send me:



A red hood! I love hats that cover my ears and this one incorporates my folk and fairy tale theme. *Thumbs up* I hadn't noticed, but I pinned this pattern multiple times. Figures. It's super! (Nevermind my stupid expression.)
You can see a bit more here:




For the supply portion she sent me a bagful- literally -of trims!



I love trims. Like I told her, though, I'm too cheap to buy bunches so I wander away sadly after ogling them in the store. But these are mine now. Mine! YAY!


Thank you so much, Smeddley! You are a fab partner. Anytime.

Thank you!

Great projects, LM! I love the colors in the yarn you used for those scarves.

The rose is lovely, FG!

Thanks for posting the link, rbr. It made it nice and easy to find!

Thanks, guys!

Roler, thanks for the info! The recipe was different from a lot of pancake recipes I've used because it didn't call for oil or melted butter and a bunch of sugar went in. I'm not complaining  Smiley

Neat idea with the goal book! I am also in love with the bunny ATC. The afghan is lovely! The little horse looks so cuddly. The orange diary is fantastic! I love orange.


Prompt:  January battle - cold

Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: Magic 8 macaron
Project Link: not yet
Brief Description: This was another one that had to wait a while to get made after I did the fabric up.
My answer to that old conversation starter question- Would you rather be too hot or too cold -has always been too cold. I don't like it, but I don't like being too hot more. That being said, I can't wait for summer! This macaron has a metal zipper and, like all the other macarons, is built on metal buttons. Metal is cold to the touch.

Project Name: POW-erful Macaron Coin Purse
Project Link: not yet
Brief Description: It's bright! I did up the design and had it printed by Spoonflower, but didn't get around to making a 'caron out of it until Christmas. I'm not sure if I love using printed fabric or doodling by hand more. They each have their place, I guess. I love macarons!

Project Link: I found the recipe here. It says they're Japanese pancakes. I don't know if that's true (Roler? Can you confirm or deny?) Either way they were good!

Project Name: Circle On Lid of Doodad holder
Project Link:
Brief Description: I made this as a gift. The mason jar "doodad holder" is filled with 100+ little rectangles fused with wonder-under for fabric stamps. I tried glueing the circle on lid to the rim, but it didn't take. I kinda like that it can pop in and out and maybe go on more pincushion-y adventures while keeping its shape, thanks to the, apparently, not-for-metal glue.

Project Name: The Noodle Thing
Project Link: 
Brief Description: I think I've mentioned this before, but my Aunt D makes this delicious, scrumptious, perfect dish we call The Noodle Thing. She's one of those cooks who rarely measures anything and I am nowhere near that level. I managed to come up with something similar from what she'd told me, but it wasn't The Noodle Thing. This Christmas she gave me an actual recipe for The Noodle Thing along with the ingredients! It was The Noodle Thing!

Project Name: plain macaron coin purse

Brief Description: One of my favorites places is Eastern Washington, that is, east of the mountains that divide Washington State (Hello to all you other PNW'ers!)
When I went over there as a kid, my Auntie would make sugar cookies (a dessert like macarons) and my older cousins would help me and my little sis frost them while we were eating the frosting Grin Best times!

Project Name: popcorn baubles
Project Link: -
Brief Description: Corn has an interesting history. It may have originated in Mexico which is where one side of my family is from- the side with the ancient cookbook I tweaked the recipe from even! It was my mom's side of the family that got me hooked on popcorn balls to begin with, but, hey, these still fit the prompt!
I wrapped them up and tied them for co-worker gifts.
