Details of swap:
A classic One Tiny Thing swap! You'll be making one thing, and that thing will fit in a metaphorical box with 4x4x4 inch dimensions. Please make something you have a high skill level at, the metaphorical box should be full of something ~awesome~. It should also be full of something to chase the winter away. Flowers, baby animals, chocolate bunnies, eggs, pastels and bold bright colours: if it screams spring that's good enough for me.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Valentine's Day Tote on: March 14, 2017 04:31:17 PM
I wanted something iconically coloured, but with no actual hearts or Valentine's images, so it could be used more than one day a year.

The first thing I decided on was cool handles. This is a really thick (three inches) embroidered trim. I sewed it inside out in a loop, then topstitched it for more stability. It took about a million years to wiggle it right side out again, but the look is worth it.

The outside fabric has wave shaped pink lines:

The inside has three compartments, it's basically sewn like a W:
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First Quilt on: December 29, 2016 10:14:17 PM
I made Thimbles a quilt for the 12 days of Christmas swap. It took much longer than I thought it would. Even cutting everything out was a chore. I didn't have any actual quilting supplies, so I made a 6x6 square pattern piece and cut it out 81 times. There were definitely a few times where I wanted to throw the whole thing into the garbage. Pinning on the extra wide bias tape was especially awful, it didn't catch the bottom a few times on the first sew, so I had to go over the whole thing a second time.

In the end though, I used up some of my miles and miles of Christmas cotton, and made something I'm proud of. Also, I got a board and a ruler and a cutter for Christmas, so the next one should hopefully be easier.

The back is the same white plaid fabric with the bells that's the fourth square in.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / 3 fandom t-shirts on: December 29, 2016 09:56:07 PM
This Christmas I made my girlfriend of five years a shirt based on her favourite Youtube personality-- GTLive/MatPat. He does analysis of films and video games, as well as streaming gameplay. He ends every theory with this statement:

I also made my best friend a shirt for her favourite fandom. There's a musical show called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and one of the songs is called Face Your Fears. It's a song about insanely dangerous things you should do to show the world you're tough and not scared of anything. Here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrytvZc5Tew
I wrote out the lyrics in bullet format:

Lastly, for the multi-theme swap, I made Ryn a semi-subtle Playstation shirt:
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Patchwork Scarf on: December 05, 2016 04:44:28 PM
I made this scarf for the aliens and robots swap. I used nine different fabrics, then stencilled the triangle fabric with aliens.

The backside of the scarf is flannel, so it has good neck-feel.

It's the first time I've ever made patchwork anything, but I think it turned out really nicely.
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cute Monster Tags on: October 17, 2016 09:28:56 PM
A few swaps ago, Glamis sent me an extra of stickers. I decided to make a bunch of tags out of them.

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Notecard SET swap on: September 18, 2016 04:20:39 PM
Usually when I run a notecard swap, I encourage participants to tailor to their partner's colours and themes, and make a bunch of different ones. But I was thinking this time about everyone making a set of eight that are identical or close (same stamp pattern different colours, same colours different layered papers, etc).

In this one, hosted by someone else:


it was a Sweat Shoppe style one, where you made your cards and took pics, and people made pick-lists. We could do it that way, or just assign partners and have it still slightly catered to your colour and theme likes. What would you rather?
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Nature Inspired Pendants on: September 08, 2016 08:30:54 PM
Based on a pin of a swap partner's, I made this thread covered twig necklace:

I also used many layers of nail polish and floral pebbles to make these galaxy pendants:

This is a crystal inside a rock that was found in Colorado by my friend:

And then these are less reconstructed, but they also went with the nature theme... a decopauge pendant and a polyclay pendant imprinted with a leaf from a tree in my yard.

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Subversive Cards on: June 04, 2016 08:27:35 PM
The May destash challenge was to make something subversive. Without getting super preachy, I think gender norms are pretty damaging to kids, and set up unrealistic ideals for adults. I work at a daycare and thankfully all the staff agree. We strive to make sure all the kids know they can do anything, and like anything, and phrases like "boys will be boys" are NEVER said. Therefore, the first thing I thought when I saw the 'subversive' challenge was f**k gender.
