1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Question about embroidery floss scraps on: August 02, 2013 10:09:53 PM
So I've been doing a TON of cross stitching lately and I've ended up with a size-able ball of leftover floss. When I need a color I will cut whatever length I need and then split it into thirds to use the two strands. Do people separate the floss and then cut it? Or if not, what do you do with the other 2/3 of the floss to keep it all separated and neat? I try to keep it so I can re-use it, but sometimes I'll forget what number it is and end up not being able to match it. What do you guys do to keep your scraps organized?
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / R2-D2 phone case! on: April 11, 2013 09:59:32 PM
Haven't posted in awhile!

So I found one of those cross stitch iPhone cases in the Joanns clearance section for 2.97! I brought it home and the first thing my bf said when he saw that it was blue was, "R2-D2!!" I was inspired by this pixel pattern: http://gadgetsin.com/uploads/2011/04/pixel_people_star_wars_cross_stitch_patterns_2.jpg

Anywho, here it is!

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / First Quilt! on: February 21, 2012 12:49:07 PM
So I recently decided to start my first quilt. I found a tut I liked and am going from there.
Here's the tut: http://www.ludlowquiltandsew.co.uk/Jelly_Roll_Quilt.html
I decided to go with the Jelly Roll (or two in this case, couldn't find one bigger than 24 pieces) because I don't have any good fabric shops near me and I was intimidated by that much fabric  Grin
I'm going to find a thrift shop sheet to do for the backing and I have the batting from a large fabric collection I bought off CL.
I'm most likely going to do the embroidery floss ties since this is my first one  Smiley

Any suggestions or tips?
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Homemade Heating Pad on: February 05, 2012 10:31:20 AM
My latest creation! I actually made this as a valentines day present for my boyfriend to help with his back problems.

It was some fabric I had left over that I sewed into a simple pouch, filled with rice and then sewed the seam in the middle.
I tested it out last night and it works super well, very warm. If I make another one I'd love to test out adding some sort of aromatherapy oil to the rice to make it smell good.  Smiley

5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Dove Chocolate Wrappers on: January 24, 2012 11:51:54 PM
So I have been looking around Craftster for a few days now and I'm addicted!!  Cheesy

I was sitting here eating those Dove chocolates that have the inspirational sayings on the inside of the wrappers and I was wondering if anybody has made anything cute out of those before. I've been itching to make something lately and surely wouldn't mind eating more of these things  Grin
