21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Infinity scarf on: April 10, 2013 04:06:46 PM
I bought too much yarn for my first scarf and had a bunch left over, so I made one for my pal FeliciaSlayDCRG. I used this tutorial, and it went quite fast once I got the rows down. I really like how the pattern turned out and would definitely use it again.







I have had quit enough of golden mustard color yarn for a while though. Cheesy Thanks for looking! Smiley

Are there any types of crafting that you especially admire? I love anything well done and made with love!  

Is there anything you would especially like to receive? I am up for anything that inspires you! My husband and I just bought our first home in 2011, so if that date were incorporated somehow, that would certainly be cool. (Though not a requirement!)

Least favorite colors: mustard yellow, olive green

Are there any types of houses that especially appeal to you (cottages, cabins, etc)? I do love cottages, cabins, bungalows -- but also love imaginary homes like little mushroom homes, fairy house concepts, etc.
Are there any specific details of houses that you admire (chimneys, flowerboxes, snow on the roof, etc)? I love to garden and love our bird feeders/bird houses, so any floral details would be beautiful.

24  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Question reg. feedback on: March 14, 2013 08:14:37 PM
If a swapper sent their package on time, but it hasn't been received by the "2 week past sendout" date/feedback time, do they get a positive or a temp. negative? I wasn't sure because if they do have proof of sending on time but if the partner hasn't received, how would you know that the package met swap requirements?

Also, if someone sent and tracking shows a notice has been left but not delivered/picked up at the recipient's end, what then? Does the PO send the package back to the sender? And then what?

One more. If feedback time comes, and you havent heard if recipients received, do you as an organizer go ahead and check tracking numbers to see if it had been delivered, and then give the positive feedback to the sender?

Thanks and sorry for all the questions (first time solo organizer here). Wink
25  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter Bunny Mugrug on: March 13, 2013 03:09:29 PM
I have been enjoying making my mom different mugrugs for different holidays. I get to practice quilting and binding techniques on a smaller scale, which is nice since I tend to prefer projects that I can finish in one or two sittings.

For the bunny, I used a template I found in this tutorial, and just sized it down before printing. I really like the colors I picked, however, the binding is definitely not my best work, and I also forgot to put the back piece on before quilting on the bunny, so it is just the solid green on the back. Oh well, my mom likes it and that is all that matters! Wink



And with a mug some friends got me for Christmas. Grin


Thanks for looking! Smiley
26  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easy stuffed Easter bunny on: March 13, 2013 03:02:07 PM
I came across this tutorial and for some reason I just wanted to make one. I really don't know what I'm going to do with him, but he was quick, easy, and fun to make!

27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Journal cover on: March 02, 2013 09:30:42 AM
I made this journal cover for my partner in a recent swap. The quote was one she had pinned on her Pinterest. I tried something new (to me) out for this one-printing on to fabric. I ironed a piece of freezer paper onto the fabric I wanted to print on, and cut to the size of a normal piece of printer paper. Making sure it would feed through right side up, I printed out the quote in a font I liked and in a couple of different sizes (spaced apart). I let it sit to make sure it was dry, and then cut out the size I liked, centered it on my journal cover, and stitched around it. I was very pleased with how it turned out and have no doubt of using this technique in the future!

28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Read bookmark on: March 02, 2013 09:24:21 AM
For a recent swap, one of the items to make was a bookmark. I knew I would like to make one with something embroidered on it for my partner. However, I am not very confident in my embroidery skills, so decided to try out the freezer paper method in hopes of making neater looking stitches. I found a free font online that I liked, and printed out "READ" onto a piece of freezer paper. After constructing the bookmark, I ironed the image onto the bookmark and went to town! Once fully embroidered, I started gently ripping and pulling away the freezer paper. If you ever try this method, I definitely recommend having tweezers handy...of which I do not own Roll Eyes.

I was pleased with how it turned out in the end. My husband liked it so much, he asked for one himself with a different image embroidred. Let's just say Im still trying to figure that one out...it isnt going as well as this one did. Undecided



Thanks for looking! Smiley
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Scrappy striped tote on: March 02, 2013 09:12:18 AM
I recently made this tote for a swap. My partner liked blues and purples, but I didnt have any large enough pieces in my stash to make a tote in those colors. After hemming and hawing for a few days, I finally sat down and went through my scrap bags to see what I had there. Strips! Lots and lots of strips! After making sure to pick out ones that were long enough to make a front and back piece out of, I tried to arrange them so that the darker purple faded into lighter purple, into lighter blue, into darker blue, with the floral strip in the middle to pull them together. Sewed them together to make a front and back piece, interfaced them with some sturdy interfacing remnant, and lined with some blue fabric that I had just received as an extra from another swap. I also boxed out the bottom so that it could stand on its own.

I had a lot of fun making this and figuring it out on my own, and really want to make one for myself now (and I have plenty of more strips to looks through haha Wink).

Here it is!


A little bit closer...


...and flat to see the colors a bit better.

30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tiny House Zipper Pouch on: March 02, 2013 08:47:55 AM
I recently made this for my partner in the Tiny House swap. She wanted something functional, and I knew right away that I wanted to try a zippered pouch. First I wanted to try one with a zipper down the side (inspiration here). I made it, but because the swap requirements were for the house to be under 4" in any direction, it was so small to maneuver the zipper, and the fabric kept getting caught when I opened or closed it. I definitely couldnt send it if it didnt work 100%! So back to the drawing board I went. My husband let me bounce ideas off of him and we decided that I should put the zipper vertically down the middle of the back. Yay! It worked! And partner said she likes it, so I am happy. Smiley

Final (functional) house:


The original:


And together:
