1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Sewing with paper? on: August 22, 2016 08:58:25 PM
I have some Pogs.

Okay. So Pogs. Those fun round pieces of cardboard that was all the rage for fame play in the '90s. I want to make a scrapbook page with them by sewing them into little vellum or plastic pockets. But I'm not sure the best way to go about this on a sewing machine.

I would welcome any advise or tips for how to sew with paper on a sewing machine. Or any ideas for making see through panels to display my Pogs on the page.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Arkansas Razorback Baby Hats on: April 03, 2016 07:27:26 PM
My partner's cousin is having her first baby, a boy, in May.  She is a huge Arkansas Razorback Football fan and I knew she would love to dress her little boy as a little razorback hog during the coming football season.  So I made her two hats.  One for him when he's newborn (0-3month sized) and one for football season (6-9 month sized)

I found a pattern that I liked here and then just altered as I needed to.  I also added a little tail to each hat.

bonus--some little booties

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Horrible Spinach Squash Pie! on: February 04, 2016 07:27:46 AM
I've been trying to make new vegan recipes to expand on my meal plan.  Especially things that can be more than one meal.  So when I came across a yellow squash pie recipe I was excited.  But after I made the filling I knew that it was going to be awful!   Cry The spinach was just all wrong with the rest of the flavors!  Gross gross gross gross!  I did love the sauteed yellow squash and onion before I put it in the pie though...so maybe it wasn't a complete loss.  But I will not be trying to "fix" this recipe!  Tongue

It was so pretty when it came out of the oven.  The zucchini strips made it so cute!
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / my 1st square ever! on: January 31, 2016 01:40:12 PM
okay.  so it's not a completed quilt but I'm pretty proud of myself with this little block and can't wait to make a full project with it!

I got the pattern from FandominStitches

I'm going to do some more simple blocks and then make a nine block hanging for my sister!  Super excited!

6  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween FingerPuppets for Trick or Treaters! on: January 25, 2016 08:54:47 AM
I like to give out something nonfood oriented every Halloween. I usually give out a small candy, a juice box (most kids are thirsty but a bunch of parents don't think about bringing a drink out trick-or-treating!  It's hard work getting all those treats after all!!! So I always like to provide a drink), and some sort of toy.  One year we scored crayola crayons for 10 cents a box during back to school, so we gave out crayons and a handmade coloring book!  Another year we made a single page mini comic book (a few years later we met a mom who dug it out of the halloween bucket to keep for herself!)

This year I decided that I would make fingerpuppets that I could stick a candy in.  (we got fun dip) It was great using up all the felt that I've been hoarding!

I had ghosts, bats, cats, witches, frankenstein's monster, one-eyed one-horned flying purple monsters, jack-o-lanterns

This one was my favorite!
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Christmas inspired Tiny Art on: January 25, 2016 07:55:43 AM
These ATC sized art works were so much fun to do.  I made them as inserts to my Christmas cards.  A little Christmas gift for my mailing list.  Most are watercolor, ink, and acrylic on watercolor paper.  Two of them are prismacolor pencil on cardstock.  I have some embellishments on a few of them.

(the colored pencil ones)
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Harry Potter inspired carved stamp on: January 25, 2016 07:43:22 AM
For the Harry Potter craftalong I made a participation "badge" for a Slytherin Scavenger Hunt.  I carved a stamp and then colored each with prismacolor pencils and ink details!  It was so much fun.  I'm kinda addicted to it now.  I keep wanting to find more reasons to make stamps!

I'm going to use the block again for other years so I didn't include the "15" in my design...

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Snow White Thomas Kinkade on: January 25, 2016 07:28:28 AM
This is my first solid counted cross stitch that I have ever done!  I have worked little ones (not solid) before so I am pretty happy that I finished this one.  It is 5x7.  And I think that I've got that french knot thing down now!  Grin Cheesy
