1  Free Halloween Kitty Pattern in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by angelbum on: October 01, 2010 11:01:24 AM
Although you've probably seen it already, I thought I'd post my Halloween Kitty Pattern here too for you.



You can download the pattern from my free patterns page on my blog: http://artisania.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/halloween-kitty.pdf

Several people have already made her up and  you can read about it and see their work here: http://artisania.wordpress.com/2009/10/29/in-the-moonlight-glowing-jack-o-lanterns-sit/

2  Free Halloween Jack-o-lantern Pattern in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by angelbum on: September 23, 2010 11:34:46 PM
Just thought I'd share my favorite free Halloween Pattern with you.



You can find him on the free patterns page on my blog: http://artisania.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/jack-o-lantern2.pdf

I designed him 2 years ago and he's been popping up around every Halloween. It's so much fun!

Anyway, I figured I should give him to you now, while there's still lots of time for Halloween sewing.

Enjoy and please post any Jack-o-lanterns you make here  Grin

You can find the pattern on my blog: http://artisania.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/witch1.pdf

I designed this a few years ago, and since then one lady has done some neat revisions of the pattern:

To allow for custom stocking and shoe colors:

6  Quilted Mug Rug Flower in Quilting: Completed Projects by angelbum on: September 12, 2010 01:59:51 PM
What's a mug rug? It's a glorified coaster for your mug. I'm involved in a swap http://www.flickr.com/groups/1533394@N22/ and this is what I made for my partner.





Owl Bug



I'm not happy with how uneven the edges of the centre ended up. I notched out the seam allowance and each notch created these annoying points all around the edge. I'm probably going to redo it. Otherwise I love this thing! I'm having a hard time parting with it.



I blogged about it here: http://artisania.wordpress.com/2010/09/12/the-mug-rug/

8  The "OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE IT"S DONE!!" baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by angelbum on: December 21, 2008 07:04:57 PM
This one only took me 7 months, and was 3 months late! Oops! It was made for my hubby's boss' wife who gave birth at the end of August.

Several of the design elements were taken from an artist named Paul Brent, and the little boy is from Gyo Fujikawa’s book “Oh What a Busy Day”, a treasured favorite in my family. It's all been hand appliqued and embroidered. There is also  pocket at the bottom to hold the 5 starfish stuffies. The flags are the proper international signal flags which spell out the baby's first name.

















All wrapped up:



the stuffies my hubby made at the last minute:



The label:



Oh boy there are still so many more pictures that show close ups of all the quilting details. You can see more on my blog if you're interested!

9  Tia Dalma the Sea Goddess! *Pictures galore* in Halloween Costumes by angelbum on: November 01, 2008 08:36:01 AM






I made the shawl to help keep me warm. I lined it with the back of the red velvet dress I used to make the corset, and then painted the white lacy doily thing.



I pretty much handmade the whole costume, save for the belt and necklaces. I even took a regular black wig and dread each of the locks



Here's the group of us Pirates of the Carribbean:



Progress shots:

I started with  my petticoat:

One quick trip to Value Village later, I started with a lovely, $3.99 ruffled bed skirt with a kind of odd pinkish hue.



I sewed a nice, big, layered tiered skirt and went on to tea stain it. But, 4 tea bags and scalding hot bath water just wasn't doing the trick.  So I added some ingredients from the kitchen.



Hey this looks better,



But after I wrung it out and hung it to dry, my rather sickly sweet, salty petticoat still wasn't dirty looking enough. So it was on to plan B. We took it out to the pond, and then dragged it along the gravel path. It still needed more ick, so into the flower bed for some good old stompin.



Ahh, that's better... Don't worry I rinsed it out a bit before wearing it!

This is the overlayer, a $2.00 Value village saree special:



Next came the corset. I bought a lovely red velvet dress for $3.00. I found an underbust corset tutorial to follow..



Here's my son helping me paint the fish netting:



Ooh look it laces up and everything!



It was a lot of fun, and I can't wait until next year!

10  The 48 Hour Lap Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by angelbum on: October 23, 2008 04:17:16 PM
Ok, I seriously think this is a record for me. On Sunday I decided to make my Great Aunt a lap quilt for her birthday (which was yesterday - Wednesday). I bought the fabric and finished piecing the top that evening, and I finished all the sewing on Tuesday night.

The full shot:


The foot pocket on the back to keep her toes nice and warm:


The label I almost forgot to add!


My Aunt loved it! Her favorite detail were the names of the whole family and all of her closest friends which I had snuck into the quilting.
