31  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / jean pockets on: July 11, 2007 09:07:22 AM
I had a pair of old jeans I thought were pretty blah.  I managed to not stitch the pockets closed, which was much more of a challenge than I originally expected.   The winged heart and the outline of the skull I got from a stencil website someone posted on here a while ago.  (Possibly the Stencilry?)  The skull decoration was inspired from various sugar skull images. 

I plan on adding more embroidery to this pair of jeans in the future as soon as I have the time and inspiration.
32  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A Finished Round Robin on: June 19, 2007 04:52:33 PM
Last year I participated in a cross stitch round robin featuring the designer Mirabilia.  I designed the layout, but the stitchers got to pick out their favorite designs. It's finally finished so I thought I'd share.  (It's much sparklier in person)
33  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / what pattern is this? Farbenmix?? on: May 05, 2007 09:11:54 AM

I came across this on Flickr and I love the dress.  The title of the album is Farbenmix, but i looked on their website and can't figure out what pattern it might be. Huh

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
34  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / type of cathedral window quit?? on: February 15, 2007 12:57:40 PM
I was watching a quilting show on tv today, i think it may have been fons and porter.  They made a type of cathedral window quilt where they made circle fabric sandwiches and sewed the sandwiches together and folded and stiched the curved parts of the circle down.  Does anyone know of instructions online for this techinique, or know the episode number. I tried looking on the F&P website but couldn't find the one i was looking for.

Any help would be appreciated.
35  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / sock elephant on: December 31, 2006 07:22:26 AM
Here is a sock elephant I finished minutes before we left for our last(ugh, finally!) holiday party yesterday.  I had been putting it off because I couldn't figure out how to stitch the eyes. This is my first non-monkey sock creature. 

We ended up leaving before the little boy opened the present, so I'm not sure if he liked it. I'm not even sure if "I" like it.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could have attached the front legs so they didn't end up looking so wonky?
36  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / monkeys in bags on: December 18, 2006 10:44:33 AM
Everyone is probably sick of sock monkeys but here are 2 more I made for my neices.

here is the tutorial I used for the bag if anyone is interested.
37  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / tiny quilt on: December 07, 2006 02:18:20 PM

This quilt was made for a baby sock monkey.  you can see the monkey here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137989.0

It was also a test run with 1.5 in squares before I delve into a full size quilt.  I think for a full size quilt I will use tape to get a straighter stitch, maybe even do it by hand.  I haven't decided that much yet.

This is the 2nd item I've quilted.  Even though it's tiny I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.  Esp matching the seams with such small blocks.
38  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / momma and baby sock monkies on: December 07, 2006 02:06:37 PM
I mentioned earlier I was making a momma and baby sock monkey.  Here they are:

Obviously daddy monkey is red. Isn't that how sock monkey gentics works out?

It's an xmas present for my best friend's daughter who 2.5 and obsessed with mommies and babies.
39  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / yet another sock monkey on: November 16, 2006 01:38:38 PM
Here is my first sock monkey I made for my daughter.  When I bought the socks I didn't realize they were knee highs or so stretchy.  They ended up a bit lumpier than I would have liked. I cut the arms and tail wrong so she has a stumpy tail and reeeeeally long arms. All the better for hugging, right?!

40  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / rug troubles on: November 06, 2006 02:22:05 PM
I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question.  I am making a rug where you wrap fabric strips around a rope.  I've been teaching myself as I go.  The rug is about 2 ft in diameter as seen here.

everything seemed to be going fine, until I tried to get it to lay flat. here is a pic of me trying to get it to lay flat. 

no matter how hard I try, I've got this huge scallop in at least one place. Does anyone know what I've done wrong?  I think maybe I've over compensated for the arc of the circle.  I've noticed that the wrap is getting tigher and tighter as I go. Other than removing days worth of work or starting over, does anyone know what I could do to correct the mistake?
