1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Falling Leaves on: January 21, 2010 04:28:48 PM
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.
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Bird Wire Sculpture on: July 09, 2009 07:14:06 PM
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.
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Dragon Quilt on: July 08, 2009 10:50:29 AM
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


Close up of the blue and teal squares

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.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Purse Necessities swap? on: August 05, 2007 09:14:09 PM
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?
5  COOKING / Dessert / Dehydrated marshmallows on: August 01, 2007 04:25:27 PM
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.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Innocent thing to do with fuzzy handcuffs on: March 27, 2007 10:51:10 PM
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? Tongue 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

Those pics are very unflattering and not very good, but it's hard to get action pics of it :/.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first reversible Tote (4pics) on: March 27, 2007 10:47:17 PM
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.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / What I did today! (Image Obese, 7pics) on: March 12, 2007 03:58:37 PM
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.

Here I had a shirt that really wasn't very flattering as I could have hoped, but it looked better when i pulled it up a bit, so I decided to make the pull up permanent.

Before

After. I'm thinking about using some left over fabric to make straps, just so I can wear a bra with it without feeling really weird o.O

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.

9  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Canadian "Overstock" sites? on: December 29, 2006 02:22:40 PM
Sorry if someone has already made this, I only glanced through for it.
I'm looking for a Canadian equal to www.overstock.com but I'm having trouble finding one.
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Yellowed Fabric on: December 25, 2006 06:19:25 PM
I hope this goes here, if not, mods please move it to an appropriate place.

I found some pillow cases that I want to experiment with, but they've been slightly yellowed with time. IS there anything I can do to whiten them? Someone suggested vinegar to me.
