1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Light Switch and Outlet Cover on: March 01, 2014 10:26:15 AM
I recently did a swap, and this was one of my creations!

The light switch cover is on the left and the outlet cover is on the right!

I loved how quick and cute these came out.  Now I definitely want to redo all of the covers in my home!
These are just paper printed images covered with a few layers of mod podge.  Next time I will make sure that I have the right color of sealant(I accidentally picked up white), as it makes the paper mod  podge easier to apply to thin paper.

Any comments welcome!

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mini wall art [George Strait] on: March 01, 2014 10:19:19 AM
I recently did a swap and this was one of my creations!

I printed the words and boots onto fabric and then bordered it with some fabric.
I learned how to get great mitered corners while making this.

Any and all comments welcome!

Thanks for looking,

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Circus tent on: March 01, 2014 10:12:18 AM
This was my very first time ever using polymer clay, and I have found a new obsession hobby!  I had so much fun crafting this, that now I want to go get some real tools and more clay so that I can create some other goodies!

This is a polymer clay circus tent candle holder!  I upcycled an empty candle holder(the glade candle jars) and used the polymer clay around it.  Then painted with gold paint to accent the lines. 
I'm very pleased with how it came out, being my first time ever using clay.

I welcome any tips, hints, critique and criticisms.  Or just any comments!

I would like to know if there are any tips to get things to be smoother, besides just sanding? 

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Two new stockings! on: December 22, 2013 08:55:53 AM
I recently made two new stockings for this Christmas.  My boyfriend had mentioned that he never had a stocking.  So, now he has his very own personalized stocking with his name and our puppies names!

His stocking is quilted with a cuff.  His name was in reverse applique, which I will probably never do again, at least with fleece.  It was my first attempt, and it is very hard to cut out lettering.

I had had a few issues with the cuff on his but all in all I think it came out great and he loves it!

I had to make myself one as well.   Grin  Mine is lined, and I found out that it could be reversible!  Next time two stockings in one!  Making the stocking this way, I had a lot less issues with the cuff.

My stocking is inspired from a Pier 1 Christmas decoration that I am obsessed with!  The Penguin was made with felt and detailed with beads, metallic embroidery thread and extra glitter!

And the two stockings on the mantel!

I referenced this tutorial for the lined stocking.  It is very easy to follow.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Help! These "tiny stockings" are making me crazy! on: December 08, 2013 08:03:55 AM
I am in some desperate need of help!  I have been cross stitching these Bucilla "tiny stockings" and I want to make them into the stockings, however, when I use the pattern that they give to me I lose a lot of the stitching that I did.

Here is my question:  Can anyone suggest another way to finish the stockings so that I do not lose all of my stitches?

The stockings are stitched on Aida, and they are suppose to be layered with cardboard, batting, and backed with felt.

This is an example of a few of them:

Please help I would really like to avoid putting these off any longer!

Thank you!
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Tags everywhere! on: June 01, 2011 12:03:35 AM
Well I'm pretty new to this site, and I had just had to share this!

I had recently posted in another forum "What should I do with this fabric?"  and after some great suggestions this was the result!

With some scrap Barbie fabric and some ribbon I had laying around, this was the creation!  A Taggie Blanket!

It measures 12x12.  After a long hiatus from sewing, I'm pretty pleased with the result.  Now I just need to work on my edges and corners.   Smiley

Thanks for looking, any feedback is welcomed!
