11  Origami paper butterfly garland in Winter Holidays by sunnyday on: December 12, 2005 02:16:16 PM
I got my Christmas tree on the weekend. It's my first year with my own tree and I don't have many decorations so I found some origami paper and ribbon and made a garland of butterflies. I also put a few extra paper butterflies on the tree, just balanced between the needles.



I just cut the paper into 3 inch squares, bundled 4 squares at a time, folded them in half and cut the butterfly shape then punched a hole. When unfolded they have 2 holes to thread the ribbon through.

12  Patchwork cushion cover in Japanese fabrics in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by sunnyday on: August 22, 2005 08:38:35 PM
This is my first post in the Home Sweet Home board.
Friends gave me some great Japanese fabrics for my birthday and I used some of the fabric to make this cushion for them as a christmas gift.
It's great getting a head start on the Christmas presents Smiley

13  Crayon baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sunnyday on: April 12, 2005 05:58:56 PM
I just finished this quilt for my bodycombat instructor who had a baby girl last month.
I started it last year. I passed plain cream fabric and fabric crayons around amongst her friends and family at the gym, they made some great squares! I alternated the crayon squares with plain coloured squares and backed the quilt with pale blue flannelette, which is nice and soft. I machine quilted in the ditch then hand quilted different shapes in all the plain coloured squares.
I was very pleased with how it turned out and I hope Mum and Baby get lots of use out of it.

   

   
This is a close up of one of my favourite crayon squares and my favourite quilted square.

14  New quilts inspired by craftster (and little sister's pregnancy) in Quilting: Completed Projects by sunnyday on: April 05, 2005 10:53:57 PM
Hi All,
Last year I found out my sister was going to have a baby! So after about 5 years in the cupboard, my sewing machine was located and dusted off ready to start on some quilts.
I searched the internet for ideas and quilting how-tos and found craftster, I've been a lurker ever since.
I've finally decided to join up and post my own creations.


The baby boy is my nephew, the quilt is the first one I made for him and is my attempt at mock chenille. The quilt top is four layers of fabric sewn in parallel lines 1" appart then the top 3 layers are cut in between. They are meant to fray and go soft and fluffy. It didn't fray as much as I wanted but my sister loves the quilt and uses it all the time.
Sorry the picture doesn't show much of the quilt. Maybe next time I visit my sister I can take a full picture.


This is the second quilt I made. It's a bit girly, I didn't know he was going to be a boy! It has 30 hand appliqued hearts in 1930s style fabrics. Machine quilted in the ditch then hand quilted around the hearts.


I was on a roll just before christmas so I made this lap quilt for my nana.
