71  "Simply Irresistible Shawl" in Crochet: Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: February 15, 2013 09:48:28 AM
I found this pattern, rightly called "Simply Irresistible Shawl" from redheart.com

I crocheted this for Foxy Sam in the IYP rd 22.
I used Caron Simply Soft yarn.

72  MINIONS! Sewing Machine Cover (a bit picture heavy) in Needlework: Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: February 15, 2013 09:39:01 AM
I made this Despicable Me minion inspired sewing machine cover for Foxy Sam in the Invite Your Partner Rd 22 swap.

I embroidered and crayon tinted the minions.  Then I heat n bonded them to the fabric and sewed around the edges.

I chose the fabric colors to also represent a minion as well.

73  Big Bang Theory's Soft Kitty in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: February 12, 2013 10:16:04 AM
I played with my daughter's toy version of a pottery wheel using the Crayola brand Air Dry Clay. It's actually much harder to make pottery than I thought, probably even more so using a kid pottery wheel since it doesn't have as much "umph" as a real sculpting wheel.  I had wanted to try to make a vase, or cup or something, but it ended up taking more of a bowl-like shape.  Actually, it looks a bit like an ash tray if I were being honest, but I don't smoke, nor have the need of an ash tray, so its a bowl. Smiley  To hold keys, like in Sheldon and Leonard's apartment...on Big Bang Theory.

Now, I realize the dark colors on Soft Kitty are not usually the prominent color, but I wasn't sure I had enough gray to use the lighter color on bulk of the painting, so I purposefully reversed it.  It's not perfect, but it's cute enough.  You can't see in the picture, but on one side I wrote "Sing Me Soft Kitty." and the other "Purr Purr Purr." It shows up sorta okay.

74  Luna Lovegood MAQ in Quilting: Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: February 12, 2013 09:54:47 AM
It seems like all my fellow MAQ rd 6 people are posting their art quilts, so I'm going to join in the craze! I made this for tapestrymlp for her Harry Potter theme. Her pinterest is full of Luna Lovegood pins, and I really like Luna, too, so I came up with this:

I used blue and yellow, Ravenclaw colors for the front.  I know in regards to actual "quilting" there's not a lot. Once I added the embellishments, there wasn't much room in the front for good stitching features that would look right, and with all the Luna's on the backing, I didn't want to take from that, so I tried to find space on the front where I could quilt, but where it would match to empty white space on the back, and a shape which would work with my theme. I settled on about 6 small quilted hearts.  It's more "art" than "quilting" but it was fun to make, and I haven't really used fabric paint much, so it was a fairly new technique.  I'd say, if it were being judged on technical difficulty, it wouldn't score highly, but on fun and whimsical, it'd soar with a high score.  Thanks for looking!

Here's a close up on the front before I put the binding on:

I used fabric paint to create my Luna:

And lastly, I found this amazing fat quarter on Spoonflower that I could not talk myself out of because I knew it would be perfect for the backing:

75  Scarf for my niece in Crochet: Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: February 08, 2013 08:14:10 PM
I have several nieces and nephew's that live across the country that I haven't had the chance to watch grow up, or get to really know. I have a couple of the older ones on my Facebook book friend's list, and I was so excited when my  niece asked me if I would make an infinity scarf for her! Of course I would!

So, I got some super bulky yarn (love it!) and sat down, and five hours later, it was done!

Sorry the pictures are kinda dark...I get too excited to wait for daylight....I'll try to add better pictures later Smiley

Me showing it off:

(sorry it's sideways)

I've recently become addicted  to just the simple repeat of

I received the MOST. AMAZING. BIG. BANG. THEORY. INSPIRED. APRON. EVER.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  See, I love it so much, that I had to use all caps!

It's soft kitty! Best part is...it's Big Bang Theory Thursday as I like to call it, so I was already wearing my soft kitty t-shirt.

I know it's spread out kinda funny, but I was trying to take a pic with the kiddos jumping up and down asking to make cookies!

And an action shot....kinda wonky looking....had the help of my 7 year old daughter who still puts her hands on the flash, and hasn't learned about zoom too well yet....and my son had to be in the picture, too....can you tell I love BBT?? I had to show off my slippers, hat, and stuffed animal, too. And, under the apron is my soft kitty tee!

Thank you  so much Calabaza! It was so fun swapping with you....finally!

kbrison has been busy, and hasn't quite figured out how to post photos, so she asked me to post a photo of the hoop I sent her.  I'll let her comment on the significance as  to why I chose the quote I did. Smiley

79  Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 6- Gallery in The Swap Gallery by BigBangMomma on: January 29, 2013 11:35:33 AM
I received from Belladune today!  I've never received anything like this in a swap before, so thank you!

She said it's imagery pin woven. The clouds are wool locks from sheep, and the yarns are a mixture of her own handspun and commercial yarn.

Thank you very much....now to day dream about the beach....which also, she added she doesn't even like the beach! Lucky for me, I do! Smiley

80  Game of Thrones Hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: January 25, 2013 06:25:46 PM
I made this Game of Thrones, House of Targaryaen hoop for Mrs. Awesome_Pants in the Triple Versus Swap.

It's crayon tinted, and outlined with 3 strands of black thread in the basic back stitch. I think it's fun!
