21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / A Woodland-ish Wreath on: June 03, 2011 09:16:06 PM

I'm half satisfied with this project.
I really wanted to reshape the wreath.
I soaked it for days and nothing happened.
Does anyone know what I may have done wrong?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / mother's day tube shawl/scarf. on: May 04, 2011 05:13:28 PM

a mohair tube scarf, inspired by Leigh radford's "Alterknits",
that i knitted for my mother.
the fabric inside is a bed sheet
from montgomery ward. which i cut down and hemmed.
(my grandmother used to work there).

i used three balls of rowan kidsilk haze in a discounted color, and casted on an obscene amount of stitches.
it took forever.

23  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / coffee filter wreath on: January 10, 2011 04:53:10 PM

i can't stop making coffee filter wreaths.
(i have already made four.)

i want to make one for every holiday.

there is something magical about glue-ing coffee filters to paper plates.

24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a couple of slouchy hats. on: August 20, 2009 06:38:47 PM

25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / floor pillows. on: July 19, 2009 07:07:01 PM

i made this from a vintage bed sheet and stuffed it with 2 standard pillows tied together.

i followed the tutorial at AT almost exactly, i just changed the size to a 30"X30" square and stuffed the corners with fiberfill to fill in the corners.

i was kinda afraid of sewing velcro.  I haven't before.  i though the thread may catch on the rough side.  it really wasn't a big deal.  i did, however, put the fiberfill in after i put on the velcro.  i had to pick it all out of the rough side.  lawlz.......

26  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / i went walking with a ghost. on: July 11, 2009 06:42:44 PM

i had quite a few crafty disasters today.

i needed a quick project to get me back on track.

this lil' ghostie is from the black apple pack.

i should have used some interfacing or something to stiffen the fabric but, i didn't.  i'm real lazy like that.

27  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / wee and wonderful on: July 04, 2009 09:20:17 PM

free pattern @ wee wonderfuls.
i spent most of the day before easter watching chitty chitty bang bang and sewing these wonderful little creatures to give as gifts.

the pattern was pretty simple, i just drew on the fabric to make the face and embroidered over it.  instead of weighted stuffing, i tossed some navy beans in the bottom of each one.

everyone really loved them :-)
28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / photo pillow on: July 04, 2009 09:13:25 PM

it's late but at least i finished it.
it took forever to find inkjet fabric.
the patterned fabrics are vintage bed sheets.
i used 5/8 rick rack for the trim.
this my my first patchwork/quilting adventure so be kind.
inspired by the farmgirl photo pillow from "stitched in time" by alicia paulson <3

this is the original photo of me and my grandpa in the enchanted forest (1986):

30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / big yellow mowl. on: February 02, 2009 03:13:58 PM

this scarflette was hand-knit from recycled t-shirts.  it took forever to tie all the strips together.  i think i used about 3 men's larges.  i knit garter stitch until i ran out of "yarn".

once finished, it was plopped into a pot of boiling turmeric until it turned the butter-iest shade of sunshine :-)

the shiny red buttons are my favorites from my super special vintage button stash.
