271  Valentine's Redwork in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: January 19, 2009 03:12:44 PM
I love birds, and I've recently started to do needlework again.  What better way to but the two together than with some redwork valentines?

Cute little birds

Single bird


They will be in little frames eventually.  All I had were ugly gold ones and they're in the process of being painted red.

272  Cross Stitched Potpourri Sachet in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: January 17, 2009 10:23:15 PM
My grandma is going through some cancer treatment right now.  I live kind of far away, so it's hard to go visit.  She likes pretty things and smelly things, so I made her a potpourri sachet that I'm going to mail to her.  I hope it just makes her day.

I used yummy mulberry smelling potpourri.

I got the stitch design from an awesome book called "Medieval Cross Stitch Samplers" by Angela Wainwright.  I'm working on a bigger piece from the same book, and can't wait to share it here.

Thank you!

The eyes were creeping out my husband, so I changed them up a little.

274  Panda in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: January 14, 2009 05:15:50 PM
I saw the book "Cute Dolls" at the store, and had to get it.  There are so many cute little animals in it!

This was my first time working with a jersey fabric and my first time sewing a stuffed animal (although I've crocheted plenty).

So, how'd I do?

275  Gifty Soap Set in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: December 19, 2008 09:32:00 PM
I don't have a lot of money for gifts this year, but I have a lot of crafty stuff around the house.  When thinking of what in the world I could make my cousin, I came up with this.

The soap is just M&P glycerin.  I used some vitamin e oil and scented it with country apple.  I crocheted a wash cloth for her out of cotton yarn.  I think it's cute and wanted to show it off.

276  Snow Princess Wrist Warmers in Crochet: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: December 16, 2008 09:07:44 PM
I had some Yarn Bee Cameo yarn laying around and thought it was cool.  I decided to make some wrist warmers.  I used my own pattern, and can post a tut if you like.

278  I'm addicted to making cell phone carriers! (pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by amigurl55 on: November 29, 2008 09:05:33 PM
These are really simple to make, and they come out so cute!  I made one to match my SIL's purse for Christmas, a butterfly one for my MIL, and an Asian-inspired one just for fun.

SIL's to match purse (the color didn't come out so great in the first one)

Butterflies.  I couldn't get a good pic of the lining- it's a cream colored background with black butterflies.

Sorry for so many pictures.  I'm just so excited about these because I'm kind of new to sewing.

279  I sewed a purse! (and it didn't fall apart!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by amigurl55 on: November 25, 2008 07:37:26 PM
I used to dabble in paper-piecing (aka foundation piecing) and applique wall quilts a few years back, but I didn't get the hang of making anything useful.  The vest I made in sewing class fell apart in the wash, and various other attempts at other things failed.  Skip ahead a few years to when my mom made me clear my stuff out of her house and I found my sewing machine.  I thought I'd want to try making a purse.  The first one I tried didn't work because it had those round bamboo handles and I couldn't sew them on without getting lumps and bumps.  The second one turned out really nicely, though.


Nifty magnetic snap and lining:

What do you think?
