1  Several dolls in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Teabrat on: May 02, 2011 12:11:19 PM
Zosomoto dolls inspired me a few years ago, I had bought a BUNCH of felt form a local store clearance it out and was looking for something to make with it.  I gave it a shot and had a lot of fun hand sewing them together. I made a bunch for my Halloween collection and some over the years as gifts for family members. I have posted a few on here before I gave my In-laws. Here are some more I have made. (the blue puppy is a miniature of my sons favorite stuffed Animal)

2  First Applique Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Teabrat on: May 02, 2011 11:45:33 AM
I made it for my In-Laws 50th anniversary last summer. I had never attempted anything like this before but once again I jumped in feet first. I used An iron on applique to attach the pieces and then machine sewed the pieces with a blanket stitch to the top panel, then sewed around each piece when the middle and back was on. I used my embroidery machine to do the Name (one letter at at time) The design is from the Family Crest. Husband scanned it in for me and Then I spent hours turning it into something I could sew a bunch more easily. I used a poster program to print it out to the size I wanted, taped all the pages together. They were thrilled with it and I wish now I had started sooner to put more detail on the quilt itself and maybe do more actual quilting on it.
Family crest :

Right after they opened it, Husband holding it up, Shows the Size, I ran out of time and still needed to put the binding on at that point:

3  My first Granny Square Bed afghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by Teabrat on: February 14, 2011 08:59:26 PM
and as with everything I do, I always think big and bite off more then I really should. This afghan has been a year in the making with long breaks and hiding it form view when I got tired of it.
I do need to weave the ends in (I so regret not doing it as I went along!!!) and putting a simple border around the outside yet. But its usable and looks great on our bed.
The Kitty is Moki and that is the spot he sleeps in every night:)

4  Re: First time making a Purse and misc purse related objects in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Teabrat on: January 31, 2011 04:54:41 PM
The Organizer was based on one I saw at http://www.studiokatdesigns.com/portapockets.htm 
This is the pic from the other side


I just drew the shape I wanted the pouches to be and went from there. I used the heavy duty interfacing in the zipper pouch areas to help it keep it shape and a lighter interfacing on the sides and base. I will be making another this week and I can take pics as I go along to give an idea on how easy it really was. Hardest part was putting the bias binding around the edges (My poor machine didn't like the thickness of all the layers)

The purse was made with a home decor fabric (left over from covering a couch like 10 yrs ago) and the interior was just a red cotton.
The organizer was made with a heavy black satin and the same red cotton.

6  First time making a Purse and misc purse related objects in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Teabrat on: January 31, 2011 03:57:20 PM
A few weeks ago I decided to try my hand at making a purse. After spending hours scouring the net for a purse to try, I picked the Tatanne Bag http://thesisterof.blogspot.com/p/pattern.html
Since I was unsure how well it would turn out, I decided to use what I had on hand to make it and not spend any money on fabric or notions. The Purse turned out great! I love it. I ended up making an Organizer, Wallet, Card holders, and tea wallet to match. The only thing I ended up buying was some heavy duty fusible interfacing for the bottom of the purse, I had everything else on hand.




I love it so much I am now working on another one! The only thing I have changed is to make the handles longer so I can put them over my shoulder.

7  First Freezer Paper Stencils I ever Done in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Teabrat on: September 29, 2010 11:20:20 AM
Our Son loves Halo but due to his Stature and Age (12), its hard to find Items that fit him and aren't $$$$$.

I saw the freezer paper stenciling on here and thought I would give it a try and found out I LOVE IT! I have made him 2 T-shirts so far and plan on making many more of different kinds. I used fabric paint (tulip I believe)

9  WOZ Dorothy Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Teabrat on: June 23, 2009 04:02:43 PM
I made this doll for my Sister in law that collects all things Wizard of Oz. Kudos to my Husband for coming up with the Idea for Toto ( basically a black yarn pom pom with beads for eyes) for the Basket I made a form from index cards and cut felt into strips and weaved/hot glued it to the form. Again the doll was entirely hand sewn and made with acrylic felt, poly fill and embroidery thread.

I wasn't sure if I could post them. I tried doing the mature Img tag but it won't work. I can try again and see if it works.
