721  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: kitchenaid cozy on: April 29, 2008 01:36:24 PM
My mom made herself and her mom a kitchenaid cozy with no pattern. She just drafted a pattern out of newsprint, taped it together amd put it over the mixer. Once she had all the pieces fitting right, she just added a seam allowance, cut fabric and assembled it.

If you are feeling more like using a premade pattern, this thread might help you.

I second the pants rash thing Diesel!

I am also (almost) ready to send. All I have to do is spend tonight in front of the tube and stitch a few last things together. I went to the co-op today and got my little goodies for the purse too! Oh, the excitement is killing me! I can't wait to fill my new purse with stuff!

Holy stuffed purse! That is one awesome swap package, especially the tissue pocket.

Skellerz and I have both gotten our packages, and I am sooo happy! First, here is the awesome package I got from her.

A wonderful knit shopping bag that is sturdy, but stretches really far. It is in awesome colors, too. New fave shopping bag! I also got armwarmers that fit me perfectly. I mean PERFECT. I'm glad it's still cold on and off here, so I can wear them without looking too dorky. Although I will wear them a bit this summer, too. Number three is a wonderful headband (that I need an action shot of). It is in a super pretty blue, and I will be wearing it to work a lot. I also need to get a better picture of the details in the headband. I don't know what the pattern is called, but it is so pretty. The extras are a knitted dish scrubber and 2 zines she made. Overall, a VERY sweet package, I am thrilled.




Now what I made for her. First, a rug out of an old wool sweater and fabric that was saved from the incineration pile of a clothing factory. I hoped it would help keep her warm at her new dorm this fall. And the cover comes off so it can be washed without felting the lining.


Cloth pads, pantyliners and a vinyl bag. All out of stash fabric. First time making them, so I hope they work okay...


Here's the whole package with a thingy for picking up hot bowls out of the microwave, a few dorm-friendly recipies and a lavender and rice filled eye pillow.


Proof positive that swapping rocks! Seriously, when she gets feedback, I am voting for "awesome!"

Luna, that necklace is TO DIE FOR! Wisted!

And skellerz, you're silly...I'm betting the stuff you made pretty much rules. I already saw some of your knitting coolness at work in the midst of all my stalking. I's soooo excited!

I would say you did not only a great job, but great honor to the tradition of crazy quilting. I love that you took the old ideas of embroidery (and bring thrifty) and made it look really new and fun. Keep going!

I finally got a decent picture of mine! I made this for a friends baby a few months back. It's three colors of lion brand yarn (can't remeber what kind). It's not very big because I meant it as a car seat blankie. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Now that I am almost done, I realized how much I have been saying to myself "This is a sweet project, but how could it be even GREENER?" I have already met the challenge of only stashbusting and buying nothing. Now I am just a few small steps away from send out!

I (finally) got all my extras figured out! And tonight, I am assembling my purse. It's been so long since I made a purse, I forgot how much fun it can be.

I am getting so excited to send out. I really hope all the stalking I did helped me out.
