21  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / charlie brown & snoopy valentine's day quilt on: April 02, 2013 10:18:28 AM
this was my stash buster quilt top for february... can you guess why?
i've had this charlie brown fabric for i don't even know how long... probably purchased simply because it was cute... but no definite use.
not entirely sure what pattern i was going to use for it, i decided on the hexagon/triangle pattern i used for a baby shower quilt last year and loved. (eeyore quilt)

the pink fabric was actually a ton of yardage that i had purchased as a table cloth photo prop when i was getting my AA in 2009...  so that's been around for awhile too.
looking at the finished product, i can see how super busy it looks using charlie brown & snoopy all over, but i think it's super cute!

basically, this has become a "go to" baby quilt template for me now.  love it!

22  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / black white & pink baby quilt top on: April 02, 2013 10:12:51 AM
don't mind me, just playing craftster catchup Smiley
i did this quilt a few years back (oh... just 5 years ago lol)
when beginning my stash busting voyage for the year, i found that i had another set of the same quilt on it's way to getting done
originally this one was supposed to have a pink stripe across the top and bottom, but i had apparently cut the strip to short so it got to match the other one

it got a little wonky at the bottom, but i love it anyways.
and hey, i got all the black & pink blocks going the same direction!

a few more photos and such over on the blog: toothpaste & orange cat
23  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / pinwheel princess quilt top on: January 19, 2013 12:37:29 PM
part of my 2013 goal is to make one quilt top a month using my stash of fabric.
the quilt tops i don't have a personal purpose for will be donated to my parent's church to go towards humanitarian projects.
apparently they will do the rest if the tops are supplied to them (makes it easier for me!)
so as far as this quilt goes, it has been cut out for at least four years.
it was originally intended for an old friend from high school as a baby shower gift.  well, that baby is four now and i still had the pieces.
the pinwheels went together super easily, and i would totally do another quilt like this, minus using a 1/8" seam allowance.
idk why i decided to do that way back when.

thanks for taking a peek!

for christmas this year, i made her a purse (since she didn't have one in the first place) to suit her needs.

25  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / shades of orange zig zag quilt on: August 20, 2012 06:34:36 PM
my best friend friend from high school got married this summer, and i took on my second gigantic quilt wedding gift.
her colors were orange & fuchsia, so i used different orange fabrics to make the zig zags.
it was originally based off of a scrap quilt i saw on pinterest, but with a few alterations (and lots of math!) i made it what it is

their bed is "olympic queen" in size, and by far making this the largest quilt i've made so far.
i love the zig zag patterning, and currently intend to use the same style for when their family starts to grow.
here it is... the whole gigantic-ness!

best part is, it did actually fit on their bed!
26  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / eeyore hexagon & triangle baby quilt on: May 08, 2012 03:44:43 PM
one of my friends from years and years ago is having her first baby girl
after much fretting & fabric box searching, i was inspired by her tattoos, which were related to her childhood passion
she was obsessed with eeyore growing up (has an angel & devil eeyore set on her shoulder blades) and i felt the need to pass that on to her little girl to be.
tweeked from the original pattern that was all based off of triangles, i came up with this!

i think she liked it!

as usual, to not blob up the post, a few more detail shots of the binding and backing on my blog
27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / the big bang theory "bazinga" cross stitch sampler on: March 30, 2012 01:43:50 PM
my "baby" sister turned 16 yesterday, and to go along with her "starship sweet starship" cross stitch i made her for christmas
i decided she needed a little classic sheldon cooper to go on her wall as well Smiley
originally got the pattern from seeing edie22's project from TBBT swap 2 here
tweeked the border a bit, and the size of the framing around it.
changed the colors to match her other one, and whipped this baby out in less time than it took us to drive to vegas last month Smiley

as usual, a few more detail shots plus the themed shirt i got her to go with this project over on the blog
28  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / the "betsylu" ruby red slippers on: March 06, 2012 10:07:29 PM
i've been planning to do a stylized photo shoot with a friend of mine, and with that came a whole bunch of planning.  she needed shoes, so i cruised the thrift stores until i found something worth using, and then went to town using my favorite glitter paint brand (folk art extreme glitter by plaid) and went to down painting these shoes.
5 coats each later, they are perfection!  the shoot still has yet to happen, but these shoes are fabulous!  if they were my size (and if i wasn't already a giant) i would rock them for a night on the town!



love them!

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / green with envy ruffle apron on: March 06, 2012 10:03:39 PM
this was a project i LOVED seeing finished.
it was a lot of work to put together (and figure out the pattern) but the end result was well worth it.
a friend of mine had pinned this exact apron pattern to their pinterest boards, and my immediate thought was "i could TOTALLY make that for her".  well, i changed the fabrics to be her favorite color, and went to town.
first problem, the entire pattern was written in metric.  i'm in the USA, so thanks to the inches, i had a whole bunch of conversions to make.
of course, my next problem came when i went to print out the tutorial, and the website was down for about a day (which in "wanting to be productive" time, felt like a month!)
once i got the project going, i didn't want to stop.  unfortunately, work got in the way and make me take breaks.
in the end, i got it all done, top stitched and good to go.
would i do this apron again?  absolutely!

so i don't flood you with a ton of photos to load, the rest are on my blog, as well as links to the tutorial used!
30  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / zen cat t-shirt on: March 06, 2012 09:57:04 PM
i'll say that this was WAY out of my element.
it started out i had a huge plan to screen print ties for my brother for christmas with some of his drawings - he's in utah majoring in animation.
well, i psyched myself out, and waited until two days before christmas to start working on everything
instead, i ended up making a shirt for my dad using one of my brother's drawings, and it went MUCH better than anticipated.
i used tutorials i found on blogs linked to pinterest and a kit i purchased off of amazon.

since there are a bunch, all the links to the tutorials i used, my brother's website, and the specific kit i bought can be found on the blog
