11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Attack of the Killer Rabbit: Death Awaits on: September 16, 2016 02:55:57 PM
The rabbit of Monty Python fame now staring in its own film! Or, at least, pillow that looks like it might be based on a film poster:

I played around with images courtesy of the Internet and played around with them and fonts in a word processor to make this. I kept the background gray so I wouldn't use up all my ink.

A trip to the photocopy place made it big enough for pillow purposes.

Next up was tracing the design onto freezer paper to iron on over an interfaced piece of black fabric so I could cut out the design and sew it over pieces of interfaced white and red fabric:

The back features a deep lapped blind hemmed zipper and some blood seeping through by the flangs:

Cool fabric map, rbr! And so small!

Reverse appliqu is the term I've heard.

Okay, sorry for posting 3 times in a row, but I've got to say:

Awesome prize, LM! Everything from the card to the bag to the award itself is stellar. Thank you!

Is there anyone willing to captain Team Randomizer? I'm pretty busy with work, school, and my own crafting. I don't know how on top of cheering my team on I'd be, but if no one else can captain at all, I could do my best.

I got a lovely necklace from cAc in the mail. Thank you so much! One Christmas gift: Check!

My costume research project progresses. I'm working on the last really nerve-wracking part now. I usually like sewing zippers, but I'm using a new technique and it's highly visible and it's topstitched.

Gorgeous artwork and what an intriguing flower!

The shibori is beautiful as is the metal stamped jewelry.

Ha, I love that shark and the mouse and your take on fox pillows. He looks so comfy.

The embroidered towels look absolutely professional. I will be clicking that link!

But first, my FANTASTIC goodies from Smeddley:

An entire Doctor Who collection! There's a super long scarf. It's 2x+ as tall as me! Then there's fingerless mitts, which I love wearing over those cheap $1 gloves to keep my hands warmer but still able to use my fingers. And last but certainly not least, there is a stellar beanie with a bow on the side. A nod to another Doctor? I'm thinking yes.

Awesome, Smeddley! Thank you so much for everything!

Yay! I'm a winner! And someone I know will be too when I give her the necklace. I saw it and went, "Well, I know who'd love that!" Thanks, cAc!

Wow, wow, wow, and wow! Feeling very nervous about the package I sent, now. You guys are amazing! The coloring book, the letters, the doll, the embroidery? Gorgeous!

Thanks, M&C! And your APCs are so cool.

AoC, your dye jobs are gorgeous.

cAc, that ninni comoflagues so well. It totally belongs in a forest.

Be-a-u-tiful costume!

Those PE bags are awesome and, oh my gosh, SQUIRREL GIRL!

How ambitious of you to make all those gift bags!

What a cute little bear and good for you for making all those shopping bags! Little projects take a lot of determination to finish sometimes.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: dress
Project Link:
Brief Description: The mockup in preparation for the navy dress...ish. The navy dress wasn't supposed to turn out either. The fabric of this one's even more unstable, so it need a belt (it has no waist seam) and had to have some help at the neck. A little gathering and some trim (which qualifies it for craftology) fixed it enough to wear. This project required pattern making, hand sewing, and machine sewing.
