1  Quilted DC Comics Harley Quinn Journal Cover in Quilting: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: July 21, 2015 08:45:34 AM
My best friend turned 40 this year and her favorite character is Harley Quinn! Although she likes the newer version of Harley I can only seem to connect with the original that I saw on the Batman Cartoons as a kid and even this one is a little more "sexy" than the one I remember! Here is the cover I made for her!

I used my Cricut to make the screen printed Harley for the front. I think this is the best application I've had yet because of all the pressing I had to do while quilting it. I used heat n bond for the diamond appliques with blanket stitch on my sewing machine.

For the back I used my Cricut on Stabilizer to draw out the Harley head and then used my sewing machine to embroider it. Then I simply tore away the stabilizer. It gives it a bit of a free hand look!

For the inside I used two different fabrics for the "flaps" in true Harley Fashion!


I am trying to make all my projects for the rest of the year only using from my stash.... which consists of 2 50 gallon bins and more hidden fabric hidden throughout my house!
I had been in a crafting rut lately dealing with raising two kids, 2 dogs (we just added the second dog this past weekend) and dealing with an autoimmune disorder... Not knowing what to get my friend because I am not sure what all she has lead to this fantastic cover and a rebirth of my creativity! Now to find the time!

Woohoo I received both my packages! We had roadwork being done and I think it screwed with our mail!


The two on the left are from pioneer9 and the Embroidered Bumble Bees are from Wulf! They are absolutely perfect! And the bees were well worth the problems with the mail with all the road work! And I have to say we have a nice fresh street for my daughter to bike on now

I received from edelc this week and I am sorry I forgot to post photos right away! I was really spoiled on this swap by my amazing partner!


I got a Yoga Mat Bag! Which I needed to badly! The zipper on mine had broken and it wasn't usable. This came just in time and is big enough not only for my mat, but towel too! (I do Bikram, hot yoga and this hangs perfectly in the changing room! And holds everything!


I also received beautiful covered buttons, a journal cover (and it fits my comp books perfectly!), an awesome scrappy pouch (which i put my keys and wallet in while I'm at yoga), and a mug rug that is bigger than any other I have and perfect for my little cup of tea or coffee and my afternoon cookie!


Thank you so very much for my awesome stuff! It's all been put to use already! I have some fun I am still stitching up for you! I will be sending on the send out date unless some how I get a couple extra hours earlier in the week!

 am sorry it took a couple of days to post once I received but this past week was by far the craziest week of my life! We had a health scare (luckily everything is fine) and we were celebrating out 5th anniversary ... bad timing for a scare .... But I received the coolest groot dotee! I really hope mine gets to you soon! I am thinking you are going to really like it! Groot is by far my favorite comic character! I am so happy you went with him!

This is the awesome cover that Wendiek made for me! I love Mermaids and she went off of that and the ocean theme and made this amazing cover!

The little shells on the front are from near her home and the little feather on the back is from one of her lovebirds! Little does she know that before my parents adopted me, they had love birds! My mom couldn't have children of her own and neither could their lovebirds... It really means a lot to have that feather!

Also I love the beach and am actually deathly afraid of the water. My goal was to go to the beach more often since we live 15 minutes from it! I always take a notebook to brainstorm crafts in and this is the perfect size! Also I will have no problem being able to find another European size for it!

It's just so perfect! Thank You Wendie!

I received today from BigBangMomma! It was a super cute Kitty 4x6! Little does she know my daughter loves kitty cats! I so allergic we can't get a real one but her stuffed ones goes everywhere! She used materials to make it work as a mug rug but with the bead hanger she had put on it... It is now a welcome sign to my 4 year olds room! We love it thank you!

9  Star Wars Valentine's T-Shirt in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: February 11, 2015 09:43:02 AM
My 4 year old just got to see the original Star Wars for the first time and fell in LOVE with it! Everything is "Star Wars this" or "Star Wars that". We are so excited she shares our love for the films but the only thing is there isn't enough girl stuff in it... At least not by us in clothing. She is getting Yoda Valentine's we found on Pinterest and I decided she needed a shirt! So for her class party I made this Vader themed Valentine's Day shirt!
Ok so I found a picture of Vader and uploaded it to my Cricut in the Design Space web based app. Then I found a balloon image and attached it to the Vader outline and cut it out on card stock. Which I then put onto HeatnBond and attached to this black Valentine's fabric I found in my stash!

(I ended up using black thread for the blanket stitch based on the advise of a friend, which I'm glad I listened to!)
I also used the Cricut to cut out the wording on to iron on material as well.
First I attached Vader and used the blanket stitch on my Singer with black thread to reinforce Vader and ironed on the wording. I decided to put the day and year on the back by the neck because well I didn't want to wasted the left over pink!

She was so excited! She told me it was "fabulous"! But considering she is 4, I just hope she doesn't change her mind about wearing it before the party!

Here is a shot of her Valentines that I found from celesterockwood-jones.typepad.com. With glowsticks for the lightsabers!

I received a totally awesome package from sweety28303! So many really cool things!


The painted mason jar is so great! It's already got a candle and is in my craft room/living room! I have wanted one of those forever!


The pin cushion small mason jar was perfect for my sewing pins! As you can see it has already been put to good use! Now I won't worry about my 1 year old finding pins on the floor!


And even though it was over 70 here today I am even modeling my new crocheted hat which I might have to fight my daughters for!

Half the candy is probably already gone and the mailbox with all the stickers my 4 year old is in love with! I am sure I will be finding foam heart stickers for the next year in mysterious places!

I love the Kirby coaster and the little heart. My 4 year old took the heart to be a coaster for her baby dolls cup.

Thank you so much! I love it all! I couldn't have asked for a better partner! A

Oh and the crochet bordered hoop is hanging up already too. It was the perfect add on to our holiday decorations!
