1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I made me a cute baby bag! And the baby even fits in it! on: September 06, 2011 09:02:32 AM
I've been spending the last few weeks of my maternity leave making stuff for the new baby, and here's the baby bag I finished! I'm immensely proud of how it turned out! Of course, I HAD to use an owl print.... ^.^



And the baby even fits inside it!



The pattern I used can be found here: http://www.warehousefabricsinc.com/blog/diaper-bag-with-a-divider/

And I blogged about the project here: http://cindibee.blogspot.com/2011/09/different-meanings-of-baby-bag.html
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / More pages from my collage-heavy art journal! (MANY pics) on: September 01, 2011 03:46:40 PM
I initially posted pics from my visual journal in this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=325975.0

Here's how the journal looked when I first made it several years ago, before anything was added to it:



I've added tons more to my journal since then and wanted to share more with you. Some of these pics were originally posted in the first topic, but the pic quality was poor, so I'm reposting those as well.

Look at the state of the pages now!

























































Though I don't truly count any page as "finished", as I always like to go back and add little details, these next pages are more unfinished than the ones above.









3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / A Very Visual Journal (very pic heavy) on: October 28, 2009 02:45:46 PM
ETA: More pics can be found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=389734

I finally decided to post a few pictures from my art journal. I've been working on this for the last few years. I add to it slowly over time. It's a very good companion on car rides and vacations!

A note about this journal: I made pretty much everything. I made the journal itself and its cover and the collaging is done with bits and pieces of everything under the sun, collected and stored in overflowing boxes. I probably have enough paper bits to collage my next five journals. But will I stop collecting? NO! That's just crazy talk....






















Page on the left is a love letter to my husband.




Page on the right features an EKG I did on myself in A&P class.


A drawing of a grackle that landed near me at work, and the feather he left for me when he flew away.

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Repairing some GORGEOUS antique quilts on: December 28, 2007 10:42:20 PM
I guess I shall put this in the Discussion category, since it's still a work in progress, and I wouldn't mind hearing any tips anyone has on quilt repairs!

So, the day after Christmas, I managed to snag TWO antique quilts from some antique shops, for very fantastic prices. Only problem is they have a few issues that need to be dealt with. Nothing too major... mostly split seams and a few holes, so I'm super excited to be able to work on these and then snuggle up with them when it's cold! (I believe in resurrecting an old quilt and restoring it to "active duty".)

So, here are lovely photos! And this was also blogged at my site here.


Wonderful feedsack prints, and a very soft backing. This quilt cost $60.




Closeup of the hole. It goes through all layers, so back, batting, and pinwheel block will have to be repaired.


This quilt was bought for $30 and is completely handsewn.


This is the beautiful backing fabric on the second quilt.


The only spot of damage, not even the size of a silver dollar.
