Not happy with this one at all. Poo-bag holder for walks with the dogs. Wanted a stream-line holder for a ID/wallet side and a bag side but instead ended up with it all being one and ruining some cute fabric. Oh well the end product holds a poo bag and the essential ID's so I guess it's ok.

 

*just wanted to say that my cutting table isn't that yucky, it's more the angle of the pic*

kwiltykate The beer costumes cracked me up and your little brain slug is adorable.

I finished one more, I'm up to 28 Smiley The chair and ottoman I finished a few months ago and originally I was going to make slip covers for for our two yucky chairs but we found a little cheap couch on sale the other day so I just ended up with throw pillows.

The ottoman needed recovered cause one of our dogs decided to dig a hole in it  Roll Eyes I'm so glad she's out of her evil stage. The chair cushion had some holes (one dog related the others just wear and tear). Oh the ottoman cover is handsewen on, it took soooo long.



Pillows and new red couch (I love red). I was going to make a bolster for the middle cushion but I think it will be too cluttered, not to mention it would be one more pillow to pick up from the floor when I get home.


closure of the gold pillows, had to be resourcefull so I dug through my ribbon box, I always keep all the ribbon scraps that come off of random packaging. I think this one was wrapped around some photoalbums I got for Christmas one year.

I received from HippieKender the other day. I love everything! Thank you so much!

First a necklace and a set of earrings, the pages are from an actual book. I've been reading the random words trying to decide on what story it is, are all of them from the same book?



And my little black book I'm in love with. There are blank pages and some pretty origami paper also a few doodle sketches. And my favorite you can kind of see is the skull and crossbones is the decorative front and back.


I tried to get a better pic of the cover but this is the best I could come up with, black is hard to photograph. It's sooo soft I just want to sit and pet it, lol.

I finished my haunted house pillows, in time for Halloween too! I'm rather proud about that, lol. I got the idea from a project on joanns.com only theirs were felt and sewn. I decided to use what I had on hand instead, so I drew some haunted houses onto freezer paper and stenciled it, then sewed and stuffed.



soorawn I love the little death rat.

sarahj2001 ~ Liking the pink fabric for the skirt and thread catcher. Your yarn looks great!

Here's my take two on one of my projects, originally it was fake roman blinds for my kitchen but it was a bit of a fail. Instead I made curtains and wrote out drinking/alcohol quotes on them. The first theme of our kitchen is black and white with red accents, the second is well umm alcohol  Undecided

In hind sight I could've made them much better. So I like the concept but not the execution. (BTW anyone knows how to resize their pics for forums I'd love to know. I always feel like I'm taking up bandwith for just so/so projects) Anywho here's 1,2, and 3 windows. The quotes go from one side to the other. Oh and the black valance/tie backs are made of an old shower curtain, the "bar" for the curtains are the old mini-blind skeleton that I glued the curtains too. So frugality/aka cheapness is key.

I've been highly unmotivated to craft pretty much anything, it's mostly because my craft room is so dirty and cluttered right now. I drains all my energy just looking at the mess.

Finally being tired of my blah state I forced myself into my craft room and have done some mild picking up, well at least enough to want to craft again.

Finished my trash bag for my Jeep nothing fancy but at least it's something, also this item brings me up to 25 Smiley So I'm half way done, hopefully I'll be able to finish the rest in the remaining 3 months.

Quote magnets, cute concept.

I received from amc- also. I got a Dean bookmark, here he is in all of his glory.



and peaking out over the top, gotta love a hottie for a bookmark, lol.


oh almost forgot on the back is written the quote "Dad's on a hunting trip and he hasn't been home in a couple of weeks..." and decorated with pentagrams.

Thanks amc-!

I can't believe I haven't posted in here yet  Roll Eyes

Those cards are awesome! Love the brothers and teddy bear.

The Dean pendent is amazing! Looks very well crafted, I really wish I could do polyclay better.

Here are some crappy pics of what I sent amc-, it's a Mary Winchester protection bracelet with stenciled bag.

I think my list has actually helped me get more done this year. If I'm in a craft rut I'll join a swap to force myself to craft. If I don't have a specific project in mind I rarely stay focused and it takes me forever to finish it. With my list now if I wonder into my craft room instead of just piddling around I can look at my list and pick something. However I have modified my list as I've went, took off projects that I didn't think I'd really do and added new ideas/projects I've seen others do. I have also crafted items not on my list, mostly for swaps so I have to say this has been my most productive craft year in a long time.

On that note I'm almost done with my bra (I've wanted to make one for years so I put it on my list and it got done Smiley ) I just have to sew one underwire on, hopefully I'll be able to post it later tonight.

All done! I drafted the pattern from an old bra, that was the hardest part finding a bra to cut up, lol. I didn't want to ruin a good one for a possible fail but while during a thorough spring cleaning I found an old one with some holes and broken underwire Smiley The material is some haloween fabric I got on clearance (I think around 80 to 90% off clearance) it's not the best and I don't know how it will hold up in the wash but it's stretchy and cute so I went with it. The underwires, snap, elastic and straps are salvaged from old and broken down bras.

Modeled by my pillow and polyfill cause I'm just not that comfy with my body to have a pic of me in my bra on craftster, lol.



Side view and close up


back view, it's not crooked I promise well my stitches are but the bra itself isn't.

I'm glad you liked everything! The mug is made with armour etch, a bit expensive but worth the money cause it last for a LOT of projects!

Here are some more pics of the necklace. I'm really happy with how it came out.




I would like a round two but I've sworn off swapping for the rest of the summer  Sad
