1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embellished book cover on: July 12, 2008 10:19:24 PM
It is a bit difficult to decide what catergory my work should go in. Technically, it's crazy quilting, I would call it fibre art, but it seemed to best fit here...

This is a book sleeve I made to cover a memory book for my step daughters 21st

More of my 8" totes. These are toned down crazy quilting for those who do not appreciate the art of embellishment. They also require a whole lot less time, which is great when it comes to selling them.
All of these are sold. YAY!!!

This bag is made with an 8" crazy quilted block.

Sorry, bit short of words tonight, but you get the picture. You ask and I'll answer Wink

Must start by saying
"thank god that Craftster is back!!". Could we have gone on much longer? I don't think so....
 Anyway, the little number above is for my soon to be 11 yr old, step daughter.
She is a Barbie freak, so I'm hoping the pink will be appreciated.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Crazypatch Sha Sha Dream Bag on: November 27, 2005 02:53:13 AM

I loved this pattern when I saw it, and wanted to give it a go. I really like the way it has turned out, but I would not make a pieced bag with this pattern again.It got very bulky to sew up.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=54769.0 Thanks Buglake for the tutorial.
This is my Natty Girl Sha Sha Dream Bag. It is for my sister for Christmas.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Crazy Quilt WIP-finished blocks *LOTS* of embroidery!! on: November 03, 2005 02:57:29 AM
 Not strictly a finished project...but the blocks are finished!!  Grin That counts...does't it?
 I posted here because it's more embroidery than quilting. Most the fabrics are hand done - either dyed, painted, or marbled  (there's the odd commercial piece). The blocks are hand pieced.

Hey, fellow craftstermaniacs!!
I'm loving this board and all the great and original work you guys do.
Here are some pictures (hopefully,if all goes well) of a couple of totes I've made recently.
I would appreciate your opinions. My true passion is crazy quilting, but these bags are quick to put together, and fun to do.

The bags they are on are pre-made - supermarket recycleable calico bags.
The patches are hand sewn and hand stitched on to 'iron on' vylene (sp??), ironed on to the bag then stitched down around the edges.



I used a verigated thread for the stitching on the green bag. It needed the colour.

 This is a gift for a friend

awaiting your verdicts.......
