I received from robinpich!!! She used my favorite color blue and made a super sweet sewing theme. It has sewing patterns mod podged on, some sewing charms and tiny spools for feet. Thank you so much! I should be sending Thursday.
I finished making my first project quilting quilt. "String Sunset" It is not at all traditional and it is hanging in my dining room window. I feel very outclassed by the other entries but I am still happy with it. I don't know how to post pictures from flikr But I managed to get it onto craftster so phew. I combined a lot of thing I love into making this. It has a rag edges and I washed it several times to help it start fraying. I also love sunsets over the water and ever since I saw a stunning quilt top back lit I have wanted to make something intended to be hung in a window. Since I am a mom of 3 small boys I feel proud of having accomplished anything!
Here is the quilt from my partner Crying Goddess. It is made of felt and hand sewn with stuffing in the squares. Thanks!
And here is the quilt I made for her. My dh and I designed it in Auto Cad and I paperpieced it. I also sewed clear beads along the light patterns. This design was her top request and she requested the pastel rainbow.
ooh ooh ooh! Me first. Here is my beautiful quilt from StickerChic87. The colors of my photo are not perfect but you can get the idea. Thank you very much!! She used a bunch of my themes, geometric, rainbows, and traditional. I love it, love it and it is already on my wall!
My partner pilarfarmer sent me an awesome little bird awhile back. He is so small and so cute( no more than an inch)! He sits in a perfect little wire cage and he looks like he is made out of polymer clay. Thank you very very much! He came at a difficult time in my personal life and I have really enjoyed his smug grin.
Jen sews - super cute koi print! Did you stamp it or screen print?
I screen printed it with a frame I made and some iron on vinyl. I think the iron on vinyl may last longer than contact paper although I don't know for sure not having tried contact paper. These are my first screens made ever!
Very first practice screen print:
I sent the screen on to Nolansmomster. She said she was nervous about trying screenprinting so I thought having a screen to try with might help!
My 2nd much more fiddly one was the koi. Here are some of my test prints. I ended up using more of an orange color for the final one:
And last I made a running skeleton for leather and lace on duck cloth:
Unfortunately I damaged the screen with my heat gun while trying to impatiently dry it off.
