41  Ornament Mug Rug 2 in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: December 23, 2014 02:15:48 AM
This is my second attempt at making an Ornament Mug Rug using a picture and not a pattern as reference.  The 1st attempt can be seen HERE

I'm still not totally happy with the band but it's getting better.

43  Ornament Mug Rug 1 in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: December 22, 2014 01:00:28 PM
I wanted to do a quick, simple project today so went looking in my mug rug ideas on Pinterest and found this one.  No pattern - I had to make it by looking at the picture.  Nice thing about this is there is no binding, I just went around the ornament twice with zigzag.

The band is sewn on top of the candy canes so I know they are lined up but the curve of the band makes it look like they are pushed to the right on the bottom half.  I'll see if my husband notices  Cheesy  If not, I'll continue using it but if he does, I'll make a different one for next year without stripes.

I'm not totally happy with the band shape so I'll work to perfect it over the coming year as I'd like to make some for presents next Christmas.

Today I received from Eclectic Dreamer.  She went with my love of snowmen and penguins and did a great job!

The stocking:

                  


Crafted:
              

               Snowman mug rug, 2 snowman tea towels, 3 hoops that she added beads and decorations to,
                   Seasoning mix and many yummy sounding recipes.


Purchased:
                    

                    Penguin fabric, 2 penguin toys, notebook and pen, oven mitt and pot holder.
                       Update:  I was cutting the tags off the fabric penguin toy and my scissors
                                    kept sticking to the front flippers and that's when I discovered
                                    there are magnets inside them!

47  Reusable Snack Bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Homerof2 on: December 09, 2014 07:29:51 AM
I recently made a couple of reusable snack bags for a swap partner using this tutorial.  Instead of laminated fabric, my outside is cotton fabric and the inside is PUL - with the waterproof side facing the snack so it can be wiped clean in case of spills.


                 


                    


It was a quick project which I know I will use again.

Project 9 -- this wasn't on my original list because I didn't know in January I was going to have a new great-nephew this year.  But, he's here, he's a doll and I made this little blanket for him.  It's flannel and I added colored corners to spruce it up a little.  I then quilted the top and bottom together so the two layers wouldn't shift around.

I received from gozer yesterday.  She said she enjoys drawing bunnies and this scene is from her imagination.

 
                  


Sorry for the giant picture, I got a new computer last week and I'm still trying to figure it out!

This mug rug should probably not count towards my total since it's so basic but it is a quilted project.  I was tired of my hubby setting his nightly glass of ice water on a coaster and then it dripping onto the glass table top.  I decided to make him his own water proof mug rug.  The layers are fabric, batting, PUL (water proof fabric) and fabric.  A simple quilting and binding and it didn't take long to make.

             

and a close up just to prove it's really quilted

       

I used my new walking foot for this project and now I'm kicking myself for not purchasing one sooner!!

I do have another finished project but it's for a swap so I can't post it until it's been received.
