Yeeeee! I got my patches from our awesome organizer craftADDchick and they are just as awesome as I expected
First is from Fantastic Mr Fox...she actually bought the movie to do her research lol. I looooove that she made the "cuss" in graffitti-style, it's perfect! The painting on it it awesome
Next, she made me a patch from Reno 911, a show that KILLS me, so this made me laugh pretty hard. She made the background from khaki pants like their uniforms!
The details you used in these patches are awesome, totally worth the wait!! Thanks so much craftADDchick!
** as a lil side-note, I will be setting up the next patch round and it will be my first time hosting (so be gentle lol). I'm really excited to finally jump into hosting, but I have a bit more research to do and a vacation to get through, so I will be posting more info about this in the discussion board in the next few weeks
Hey! My name is Christy and I live in Maryland with my husband, daughter, and 2 small dogs. I loooove sewing, so I will mostly have sewing crafts and supplies in my grave. Please message me any questions or requests.
** CRAFTIES **
Reversible microwave bowl holders -- 2pts per set ** Claim as bowl holders <red lollies, leaves, and multi circles> ** These bowl holders are made with 100% cotton fabric, thread, and double layer batting...so they are safe to use in the microwave. They are perfect for protecting your hands from getting burned on hot bowls!
Ticker Tape zip pouch 7.5" x 7" -- 1 point lined with red fabric
Dr Who Weeping Angel -- 1 point Comes in a 5x7 frame. I made this with 3 colored layers of Canson paper.
7"x7" Paper-Pieced Giant Squid -- 1 point I had planned to make the squid into a pouch, but couldn't get the size right, so instead, I backed it with a piece of felt and a cotton backing...it could be a mug rug, wall hanging, or whatever your lil heart desires
Set of Apple Potholders -- 1 point These are made with a layer of batting and a layer of Insulbrite (so don't put them in the microwave!)
** SUPPLIES **

NOTE for fabric below: Some fabrics have uneven cuts, so these measurements are taken using the smallest width and length...so you may end up with a bit more
*** 1 point each, or 3 fabrics for 2 points ***
Whimsical cotton fabrics -- each 45" x 37" ** Claim as "chicks, watermelon, and/or bunnies" **

I just got some awesome fandom patches from my partner milkeway.
First, my favorite, I'm still squealing....the luggage from Discworld. Ohhh, look at those bitty cutie lil teefs! She outlined him free-motion, I love having free motion embroidery for myself now woop woop!
Next up is my very own Firefly in a jar, this one won't die on me
The butterfly pouch is gorgeous, those skills! The steampunk cat is awesome, very creative! I also love the stitched cats, Nintendo and the spock patches....this gallery is sweet! My partner milkeway received on Monday so I thought I'd go ahead and post pics of the patches I sent her:
Johanna quote from Catching Fire
Futurama conversation hearts lovin
A quote from Death (Supernatural)
I had a lot of fun making them, so glad you liked them
Oooh a catbus stamp! The insect tee is so cool! How did you get that look, bleach maybe?
I received from my partner WeeFreeRhie yesterday but the pictures came out pretty dark so hopefully these are a bit better in the afternoon light...
First I got a key bracelet, 2 headbands and 2 barrettes inspired by Downton Abbey
She also sent me a mason-mug with a Terry Pratchett (I'm actually currently reading Discworld) quote, a stained-glass looking tardis (Dr Who swag, woop), a dragon statue, and a lil monster zip pouch that my daughter snatched up real quick. The picture is coming out a little smushed, hopefully that works itself out (I had to post this quick as I'm heading out the door)
