21  modern twist on traditional patterns in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by SarahFroggy on: June 08, 2004 09:10:00 AM
these blocks are from a book. cut loose quilts.http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1571201548/qid=1086710681/sr=8-4/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i4_xgl14/104-7459925-5392723?v=glance&s=books&n=507846 its a fun book cause of the modern twist on the traditional patterns. i borrowed it from the library and just had to buy it. well worth it. it is also a good book for beginners because as the name suggests things are loose and are not supposed to match up.

and roman tile/rail fence


the roman tile one i am working on is for Victoria's Quilts Canada. we make quilts for the comfort of people with cancer. my mom is a coordinator. there are groups all over canada and the US and they are always looking for more volunteers. check them out.

http://www.victoriasquiltscanada.com (this link is all messed up and have no clue why but you can see the site so just copy paste if you are interested) for the canadian site if you go to volunteers the have a listing of all of the groups throughout canada.

22  embroidered HIPPO jordy bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SarahFroggy on: May 31, 2004 11:49:57 AM
 Smiley i finally finished this purse. i've been working on it since friday and it soo could have been done in a couple of hours...oops.

hope you like it. i personally think its cute as a button. but I could be partial. Tongue

the hippo came from a package of iron on transfers but because the denim was too dark..i had to wing it. so kinda looks like the transfer. still cute




edit: forgot to mention that it is bright pink inside. Smiley

23  Re: sleepy time(princess) mask...now with tutorial!! :) in Completed Projects by SarahFroggy on: May 26, 2004 09:57:19 PM
alright. here it is... hopefully this is good. i took millions of pictures. will only use a few and if you need the pic to accompany the words. just let me know and i'll add it. Smiley my boyfriend now thinks i'm nuts cause he was playing video games in the same room. i talked myself through it like i was on a crafty show all the while taking pictures..hehe Tongue he kept asking me if i was talking to him..oops.

1. pick fabric and place with piece that touches your face (pink flannel) the good side up, pretty fabric (pink print) good side facing the flannel (basically right sides facing eachother) and your darkening stuff. i used corduroy cause i had it. check it against a lamp and see if your fabric works for darkening.


2. get the template i made from http://ca.msnusers.com/CraftyCrafty/documents.msnw i put it in pdf format so just print it out and cut it out. (edit: apparently you need to join my msn group to print it out..oops anyways you can quit after you do. didn't know of any other way to have a pdf for you to print out)

3. place on top of all three fabrics and cut them all out at the same time. makes it faster. your pieces should look like this. keep them in that order


4.cut a piece of elastic measuring about 17 inches (adjust to the size of your head).  and cut out a piece of fabric that will be the covering for the elastic 2 inches wide by 21 inches long. if you don't want a covered elastic ignore the fabric part on this step.

5. fold the fabric for the elastic cover in half lengthwise and sew it 1/4 inch from the edge.



turn right side out and then iron it so that the seam is in the middle of one side. feed the elastic into the tube of fabric. make sure you pin the elastic at each end so that it doesn't get lost inside.

6. take your mask sandwich and gently pin the tube with elastic in place.


7. pin around so that the pieces will stay together.

8. go to the sewing machine and sew around the mask about 4/8ths (the line between 3/8 and 5/8) this doesn't have to be so precise just even. make sure to leave a space open at the top so that you can turn the whole thing right side out later on.

check that you sewed it even and if not just rip some out or sew a bit closer to make the curves even.

9. trim so that you have about 1/4 inch left all around. and clip the curves so that they turn better.


10. turn right side out and shape. iron your mask so that its all pretty and flat. turn the edges in on the top press them so they stay in and hand sew closed with a hidden stitch. ( i cheated and haven't sewn mine yet. hence no pictures of me actually handsewing.)


11. sit back and enjoy your pretty sleep mask.


12. go have a nap with all the lights on to try it out. Tongue

any problems let me know. oh and if you make this you must post pictures!!! Smiley can't wait to see them. coloursknits i want to see the one you make for your hubby

i saw an ad for a book in Crafts Beautiful magazine. its from a book called New Knits by Erika Knight.

these are made out of ribbon. sorry for the nasty scan, i didn't realize the dpi was so low. but you get the idea.

i never draw my paper piecing things out. always enlarge and photocopy or just photocopy a million copies and away i go..hehe doesn't usually cost too much and well worth the time saved.

here's the applique one i did for my mom on her birthday. was my own design and the whole thing is only 8 inches square. i used the fusible applique technique and blanket stitch.

she loved it. yay! Smiley

26  sleepy time(princess) mask now with tutorial!!! in Completed Projects by SarahFroggy on: May 22, 2004 09:01:33 PM
Tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24227.msg51624#msg51624

i just made myself a new sleep mask cause mine was looking a little gross and tired...oh and before you think i'm crazy, i live downtown where it is never really dark and i also just have horizontal blinds that do not block out any light..soo hence i need a sleep mask if i want to sleep in at all..hehe..as i said in the subject..i'm not a princess..

i figured it way way cheaper to make than buying a new one.  i already had the stuff and just put black corduroy inside and flanelette on the face side.

i can do a tutorial if anyone is interested. this is just my first attempt and with most things practice makes closer to perfect.

taadaa!

27  Re: Any Shank Button Can Be A Ponytail Holder in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SarahFroggy on: May 21, 2004 06:02:53 PM
since this is in featured projects i thought i'd bring it back to life with a new post...hehe

here are my button hair pretties. i'm so excited to have noticed this cause i'm a buttonaholic and this is yet another way to use them. it is for sure a three second project. the hardest thing is picking the buttons. i found it best to have one that the shank is horizontal on the back. makes it easier for your button to be right side up. Smiley

taadaa! Tongue

28  Re: sakura pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SarahFroggy on: May 19, 2004 07:00:26 PM
so no luck on finishing the bird yet but here's the bellflower. much harder in my opinion because its all chance whether it matches up or not. the sakura is more fun Tongue (ie: less stressful)

k naomi here's attempt number two. looks less like a hat..haha. i only took the hem of 3 times. once cause i cut it too small (one inch instead of 1 1/2 oops), twice cause i forgot the leaves..hehe oops. and third cause the lining wasn't catching. ug..hehe finally. to think i started it 12 hrs ago...of course i wasn't working on it the whole time Tongue

i think the six petals looks good cause then you can alternate. Smiley

back
