11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Ornament Mug Rug 2 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.


                 
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Ornament Mug Rug 1 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.


                    
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Reusable Snack Bags 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.
14  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Fall Mug Rugs on: November 05, 2014 02:24:21 PM
LisaMarieNY has some wonderful mug rug patterns (Lisa_Marie on Craftsy) and I've purchased a few - this is the second one I've made.  In hindsight, I wish I had put a colored binding rather than folding the back over the front.

                     


AND


I did a non-Craftster mug rug swap recently and this is what I sent my partner for the Fall theme.

                     
15  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Spring Mug Rug on: October 14, 2014 03:05:01 AM
In March, LisaMarieNY posted a picture of a Spring mug rug she had designed and I fell in love with it.  Thankfully she sells her patterns so I was able to purchase it and make my version.

This was finished in April but I just realized it wasn't posted yet.

Details of swap:

The idea is to make  ONE tiny craft item  that  must measure 4 by 4 or smaller.   "Extras" are not allowed in this swap!

Since you're only crafting and sending one tiny item, please make every effort to ensure that what youre making is something great something that you hope your partner will adore!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Post on this thread once you've sent in your questionnaire and post a few times during the swap so we know you're still active.

Please put OTT 24 in the subject line of all PM's

A DC# is not required since the packages are very small but save your receipt and be prepared to show me a copy if there are problems with your package arriving in a timely fashion.

Remember to PM the organizer and your partner when you send and when you receive.

If you know you won't be able to post pictures, tell you partner right away so they can take a picture of the item before they send to you.

Remember send only ONE tiny item, no extras!  It will be noted in your feedback if you don't follow the 'rule' and send extras.

I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you must inform me and your partner.

My little contribution to this month's challenge.  A slice of watermelon hoop.

                         


And to prove it's actually a tiny item - the hoop measures 3" and the watermelon slice is 1 1/2".

I've had this project pinned for quite awhile and when I saw Challenge 98's theme I knew this was going to be my project.  Here is my inspiration PIN

For those unfamiliar with Canada - that's a maple leaf on her shirt and she's holding hands with a beaver, our national animal.
