Okay, so this was my project for my Grade 12 Textiles class. It's actually my second quilt, and I absolutely LOVE it. I started working on it about the end of September and finished it earlier this week.
This is the overall quilt, the leaves are suppose to appear to be slowly falling from the top.
A close-up of the top corner with the 4 leaves, a lovely blanket stitch if I say so myself (Machine done!)
Corner detail with embroidered bias tape
I'm extrememly pleased with the results. I used 100% cotton for all the squares, the back is a sheet (seamless backing FTW) and a 100% Warm and Natural cotton batting, all to sort of go with the theme of the quilt.
So I made this in Art class about a 1 1/2yr ago, my first wire sculpture wasn't turning out, so I had to quickly make up this idea, which the teacher didn't like cause I didn't have a "plan" for it. Pfft! But here it is
This is the overall sculpture of a bird flying over a nest of 3 eggs.
This is just to compare the size of the eggs to a quarter, the whole nest pretty much fits in my hand.
And this is the bird, and yes it's beak is green lol. We were limited for colours of wire.
So I made a quilt (first time ever!) in my Textiles class. It was for my bf (at the time). He really likes dragons, so I decided to put a dragon on the quilt, and what and undertaking that was! I've posted with on whatthecraft, but I figured it wouldn't do harm to crafters to post it here too.
This is the overall quilt, the bed it is on is a king size bed, so my quilt was fairly big to say the least
The back, fairly simple

And the grand finale....
The Dragon! He's an iron-on applique that I made and sewed around. Sewing around the claws had to be one of the hardest things about this quilt, but I'm really happy how it turned out.
Could be fun. I think lots of girls like to keep their whole life in their purse, or maybe that's just me. But I hate everything getting tangled, lost, almost destroyed and such in there. But just making stuff like coin purses, pouches, containers for knick-knacks or those ladysticks. Someone might even need a new purse to keep their life in. Even if it's just a small swap, I think it'd be a good idea. Maybe?
You know those marshmallows in hot chocolate and cereals.
Does anyone know if it's possible to make these at home? I was wondering if anyone has tried? My mom suggested that we throw a few marshmallows in the (I'm not 100% what it's called, you make beef jerky in it or something like that) but I think it's called a dehydrater.
A belt is considered clothing, right? o.O Anyway, I wanted to get some practical use out of my fuzzy handcuffs. I mean everyone wants to own some, but how many actually USE them for something? So I decided on a belt. I really like how it came out since it was made of a scrap from my tote bag =D
My first tote was getting a little too broken in, but it lasted good as a first attempt. I wanted a slightly bigger one and reversible if I could manage it. With my AWESOME mommy's help, I was able to make it reversible and I'm in love with it.
It's Spring Break, my parents went to Reno for a week, and I got bored. So I stared at my bin full of stuff I want to recon and such, and decided that I was going to do a shirt or two. I am a beginner, so these may not be the best recons.
And this shirt my parents got for me when they went to Vegas (Just realized that my parents may seem like gambling addicts now, but they really aren't o.O) And the design on it was good, but the rest of it was too blah. I need more ribbon for it tho, but this will have to do for now.
