Oh man, everything in this gallery is just so awesome! I love the fabrics used on the bags, and the quilt is fantastic! That swiffer cover is so neat! I really need to make myself a crochet version.

And, I received a fan-freakin-tabulous pop tab purse from longtimegeek. I was expecting a clutch (and was worried that I'd drop it somewhere), so I was THRILLED when I opened it to find that she put a strap on it (perfect length) and a zipper!! She lined it with this cool pinkish fabric and put several pockets inside. IT ROCKS!! And, as a bonus, she tucked a package of raspberry chocolates inside...yum...

I just love it, so all of your hard work was worth it!! I may have to try to get enough tabs to make a coordinating coin purse or something, because I know folks will ask me how to make it. So, I need to learn on something small. Love, love, love!!!

thanate and Cat9, you guys have some mad sewing skills. I love how you coordinated your efforts, too! Fantastic!

And, I have this thing about tents, so now I want one of those tepees in my living room. I'd be sitting in it right now, listening to the rain hammer on the roof and windows of the house. I'd be so happy!

And, longtimegeek, I'm glad you like the lunch bag! Here's a picture of it with it's fraternal twin:

And, muria, the iron on vinyl was super easy to work with! Just don't let it stick to itself (it peels apart, but I was afraid I'd tear it) before you put it on the fabric, and keep the iron away (I did melt a small spot, but I re-melted it back together and you could barely tell!). Next time I get a 50% off coupon, I'm buying more- folks are getting re-usable lunch bags for Christmas...

403  Melted Record Bowl and Bound Album Cover Book in Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: September 04, 2008 05:41:32 PM
Well, I know it's been done a million times, but this was my first attempt, and I'm tickled with how well it came out. I needed a quick birthday present for my musician sister-in-law for our family get-together tomorrow night. So, a stop at the local thrift store to nab a few albums, a quick check of a tutorial and the rest is history.

In a fantastic fluke, the bowl melted into a triangular shape with very well formed "ripples." The second photo shows the bowl a bit better. And then, I took the cover and used my Bind-It-All (which I've had since Christmas but finally had a chance to try recently- so much fun!!), and trimmed a bunch of graph paper (I hadn't intended to trim the paper, but I goofed with the BIA and had to trim the covers down a bit).

So, here is the lovely "Hooked on Classics" gift set!

404  Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - SEPTEMBER (final month) in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: August 25, 2008 05:18:53 PM
Here's the July Easy (The Panda Pineapple Square). It wasn't hard, but I really had to pay attention to my counting!

I made one mistake, but I don't anyone will notice! And, the pineapple pattern shows up much better in the photo than in real life!

The one from jennyleigh is very cute! I love her hair, too! And her little watering can Wink And I love the flowers and sequins on the one from Kenners!

Now that I've received all of mine, here is a group shot of them all!

Whoo-hoo! While I was checking in, I heard the mailman clank the lid of my mailbox. So, when it was clear (I'm still in my PJs...), I went and grabbed the stack of mail to find my last 2 dotees!

This one is from squirrelgirl, and as I was taking her out of the envelope, she whispered that her name was Svetlana. I love how you stamped her face. I was thinking of doing that, but I couldn't find my ink pad...

And here's the one from Linda P! She's made from flag fleecy fabric and has a mirror for a face. It doesn't show well in the pics, but she has little beads sewn on the flags where the stars are and, in addition to the beads around her face, she has a crinkly bunch of white beads at the top of her head. Between the flags and the fact that the beads at the top of her head remind me of the famed (and fabled) Betsy Ross's ruffled cap, I'm going to name her Betsy!

Thanks ladies! And, as soon as I sew Sewphie's face back on, I'll take a group shot Wink

408  Re: 2008 12" Squares ~ AUGUST in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: August 20, 2008 02:23:44 PM
I decided to do a little multi-tasking (which means: make sure the washing machine doesn't siphon out, make sure the dryer doesn't catch fire, listen to some tunes...and weave in ends!), so I was able to finally finish up my JUNE square!

I think I made it a little smaller than my other squares, so I may need to fix that when I eventually join them all together.

If it looks a little wonky, I was under the influence of pain meds at the time Wink

409  Jute Twine Trivet in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: August 18, 2008 03:34:24 PM
So, my mom's birthday was Friday, and somehow, I didn't remember in time to pick up a gift certificate to her favorite store. And, since I was leaving early to head to her house, the store wasn't open for me to get one. So, around midnight, I decided that I would attempt to crochet her a trivet/hotpad using jute twine. Because time was short, and I was tired, I decided to stick with the basic granny square. It was a little bit rough on the fingers (so I may wear a band-aid or two the next time), but it came together quickly and the jute was easier to crochet with than I expected. I used a K hook and about 3/4 of the ball of twine (purchased at Home Depot...I bought the heavy duty twine).

I may make a circular one next to make it a little more rigid.

410  Let Go, Let Mum in Stenciling: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: August 18, 2008 03:28:40 PM
So, my siblings and I were heading to my mom's on Friday for her birthday. My sister thought it would be funny if we all wore shirts that said "Let Go, Let Mum" because my mom is such a take charge kind of gal...

So, after a bit of discussion about whether she'd be insulted, we decided to go ahead with it and the task to actually make them landed in my lap! I made them on Thursday and we wore them on Friday. My mom took it like a good sport! And, as she acted as a backseat driver later that day, a whispered, "Let Go, Let Mum" could be heard echoing through the car...
