21  Re: OIS4 - inchies, rinchies and twinchies edition - discussion and gallery in The Swap Gallery by meowari on: November 01, 2012 03:09:09 PM
I got my package from Dr. Craft today!
She went with my themes of:
Vintage advertisements

She hand coloured magazine covers for the backgrounds and used pictures and words from a magazine from 1889 to make my inchies! I'm going to frame them just as they are and put them up in the living room, right next to my boyfriend's Celtics, Red Sox, and Bruins memorabilia- they'll fit in perfectly!


I'm going to use them as the centerpieces of some Teesha Moore style patches as soon as can sew again!

She also sent some vintage ads from the 1890's that I am going to frame and put up as soon as I can get to Staples to have some good copies of them made!
Thank you so much, Dr. Craft!

I took some, but they aren't great  Embarrassed. I took them more for a personal record so I can improve on it if I ever try to make something like this again:

It's an altered mint tin bat fragrance holder thingy that hangs from the rearview mirror. I meant for it to hold baking soda and a scented oil, but I didn't want to send a white powder to another country, so I put some oil on a cotton ball:

The back is cut out with netting over the opening so the fragrance can escape:

Dewshinesdopp, I'm pretty sure these are the bookmarks I sent you:

And these are the ones I made for Mandymo13:

If either of you didn't receive them, let me know and I'll remake them (or some kind of like them) and send them out again!

I finally got the photos to upload, so here they are (without having to click on a link to see them!):
Eclectic Dreamer

My boyfriend immediately stole the green one and I am using the fabric one in Artful Paper Dolls: New Ways to Play with a Traditional Form. I'm so glad you wrote a description of how you made all of them, I'm definitely going to have to try some of your techniques!


I still can't believe that this was done with shaving cream and food colouring- it looks so beautiful!


If you have a better picture, please post it, I took a million trying to get a good one, but had to settle on this one. The Edward Gorey one is on display on top of my bookshelf and the Jane Austen one will be used only for her books!

Solitary Cricket

I'm so excited about the corner bookmark- it's my first! The crocheted (or is it tatted?) one is keeping my place in These Are Our Lives As Told by the People and Written by Members of the Federal Writers Project of the Works Progress Administration in North Carolin., a really really cool book if you like that kind of thing.

I really hope I didn't mix anyone's bookmarks up, I tried to keep them with the envelopes until I could get pictures, but I have been so flighty these past few weeks...
Thanks again, everyone for such great bookmarks!!

I don't know how to link to the particular page my personal swap images are on, so I'll also post pictures here:

These are the 3 I received from kriSmith, and I love them! She made the buttons on them- amazing!

These are the patches I received from kriSmith:

Sorry I had to scan them, but I lost my camera...
Thanks for a great swap, kriSmith- I love my patches, too! I especially love the handmade buttons!

These are from my personal swap from mini_mum:

So cute! I'm off to a good start for my sewing machine cover!!

Everyone has such awesome stitching on their patches, I can never make my stitches follow each other like that when I try to write or draw something. That didn't make sense. Everyone's stitches look like this: -----, while my stitches look more like this: -_--\.  Tongue

I got my package from ZucCca from the post office yesterday!
Here's everything:

She sent 3 patches, a cool cat card with a nice note on the back, and some really cute skull stickers that I might try to copy some of as embroideries (is that even a word?)!

And here's one of just the patches:

A motorcycle with the word, "vroom" embroidered underneath it, a scull with a button and an o-ring for eyes, and a scooter that is outlined in green thread.
(I never get good pictures, so if you have better ones, ZucCca, feel free to post them!)

I love everything so much!! Thank you, ZucCca!

*I think I've decided to use them to start a TM patch cover for my sewing machine!*

I have been sick for almost 2 weeks now and I knew I was going to spend all weekend in bed, so I stopped by the fabric store on the way home from work last night to grab some supplies to keep me busy. I found something in the remnant bin called "headliner" that I thought might work better than stuffing for the patches. I think it's the stuff that lines the roof of your car, it looks like this:

I doubled it over because I thought one piece would be too thin, and it worked. The patch is a lot softer than the others I made, and I thought it might be better for patches that are going to be used for clothing. The only bad things I can think of are: I don't know how well it does in the wash and when I used dull needles, I could feel it kind of dragging thorough the material, so I wouldn't use it with silk wovens or anything like that. I hope this helps some of you out!
