1  Quilt for my best friend's birthday in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by mediadiva on: May 25, 2005 07:04:34 PM
This is my first quilt that I'll be doing with triangles and not just sqaures. It's for my best friend, and it has fabrics with sheet music, instrucments, moons and stars and paw prints. Each thing represents an experience from our childhood!









Toby wasn't sure this was it, so he had me try again


TADA!

2  I made a t-shirt! MY FIRST! Oh.. and postcards. in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by mediadiva on: March 30, 2005 06:58:34 PM
A continued venture into the Japanese Print Goco;

I got some blank postcards from the craft store on the way home, and a few t-shirts. Jesse requested blue ink on the postcards, and I already had planned to have his t-shirts match his website.

Postcards




t-shirts






I'm fairly please considering it's my first time trying to print on cloth. I have lots of inprovments in mind for next time, the print was to dark near the bottom and it didn't burn the screen correctly, but it lends itself to a nice rustic feel, hah.

Got the husband to wear it even,

3  Print Gocco - My Test Project - Success! in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by mediadiva on: March 30, 2005 10:34:10 AM
A few months ago I had been reading about this really cool Japanese toy called a "Print Goco" which is basically a proffesional screen printing kit for anyone and everyone. I saw a few threads here about it. My mom sent me $200 for my birthday/xmas so I got the Print Goko, the book, the print stamping kit and some extra cloth printing inks.

Tonight was the first time I actually tried using it. I was going to make some t-shirts for Jesse or a cool business card for his website for when we went to Australia, but he never got around to giving me the "content" ehem...

So tonight I tested it on a fun little geeky birthday card for him (His b-day is april 19th btw if your wondering, hehehe).

So here are the fruits of my labor;


http://www.mediadiva.net/blog/archives/printGoko_jesseBDAY.jpg - bigger view

I was extremly impressed by the prints. It was a horrible hand drawn sketching and it's amazing how much each print looks hand drawn but much better then my drawing (cleaner because of the inks). The original is the all black one, it's messed up because it got some ink on it. It was hand drawn with a pen the kit comes with.

In the bottom left of the photo is the printing mechanism, and the master is up agains the top of it. To the top right is the "lamp" thing which you use to expose and create the "master" from.

I purchased all of the supplies from Think Ink (http://www.thinkink.net/) and was VERY happy with their customer service. It wasn't able to ship right away and so they actual waited a few days once they got it before it was mailed so it would arrive right when I got back from XMAS in VA and not sit outside in the cold on our front porch.

So being so pleased, I just ordered more bulbs and masters and some yellow cloth ink.

If you have ever wanted to make your own business cards and be in complete control of the design, this looks like it would be FAB. I have a project in mind for work that I think will be lots of fun, I'm all about the cloth printing kit!

6  Walmart Sewing Desk - So far so good in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by mediadiva on: January 10, 2005 09:57:06 AM
Normally I dislike walmart. I have had furniture I purchased from there fall apart and I think they abuse there brand and often overcharge for some things.

With that said, I could find NO OTHER STORE not on the internet to go see and puchase a sewing/craft desk for a decent price.. so for $94 i got their cute sewing desk which I have to say is pretty niffty, and extrmely solid/heavy.

7  my FIRST quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by mediadiva on: December 28, 2004 11:25:51 AM
Close up



Top of quilt, you can see the basting pins still on the sides, but the whole thing is quilted and completed (minus binding)


Here is the back, I just quilted up by stitching in the ditch on the rows of completed sqaures.. so as not to call attention to my sqaures that wern't exactly lined up Smiley hehe

8  My FIRST quilt... AKA the baby quilt in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by mediadiva on: December 20, 2004 08:15:09 AM
For my adorable nephew. I am trying despratly to finish this in time for the holidays.

Cut Fabric


I was simply not able to cut a perfect 20x20 sqaure out of the main picture because I stink, so I decided to give it up and just cut the whole darn thing up Sad


Went to Joann's and my LQS to get batting and backing, found this adorable accessory;

9  Re: Sublime Stitching and Martha Stewart... LOL in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by mediadiva on: December 06, 2004 11:48:53 AM
haha, I can't remember if I ordered the las vegas one, but I got 4 off the website a week ago, waiting for it to come in!!

thanks for the info about the dark thread, good point. Right now I am just going to be using varying shades of light-medium green. I have been VERY neat with my first block.. here it is..



Maybe I'm total nerdy but I left NONE to cross over, I tied off each time and started over an inch away so i would have nothing messy behind it to show through Smiley hehe

I'm very excited, ordering a sewing machine for XMAS Smiley I didn't realize the design would look so small but the block hasn't been cut all the way down its 14 inches when you embroider it and you cut it down to 12 afterwards.

10  In the works!! Sublime Stitching and Martha Stewart... (what a crazy combo!) in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by mediadiva on: November 30, 2004 09:39:52 AM
Okay I have a project planned!





http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=channel183843&catid=cat361

I think this project would be so fab using Sublime Stitchings patterns. I'm not sure which pattern I'll do. I have the book kit from amazon and I recently ordered the 4 pack from the website. I may just do all different ones but the idea is to pick a 2 or 3 color scheme and then do each block in a single color the same way as martha's project.

I can think of a BUNCH of wonderful things I could do. I would make a blanket with all the family members names on them, or like a memory blanket but instead of "actuall" items I could illustrate idea's. Like my sister and I used to play monopoly together I could go one of the boardwalk cards, and then I could do scareley o'hera cause my sister loved gone with the wind. All kinds of neat things. I have LOTS of idea's so if I EVER get one of the blankets finished I may make more for my mom, my sister and my newphew!
