1  LOTS of A-line skirts! A bit pic chubby in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by iheartcapnhook on: February 06, 2011 05:06:02 AM
I have been working my fingers to the nubbins trying to get ready for my first big show, http://funkyfinds.com/events/springfling/2011/.  I am going to take all OOAK skirts.  These are some of the a-lines I have started making.  Some I am taking.  Some I am keeping.  Some have a small imperfection and I am selling before hand.  Some are applique.  Some are machine embroidered.  Some are apron skirts.  Most are baggy and bustled in the back with a drawstring waist to make it fit many sizes....

3  Re: The random RESIN question thread! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by iheartcapnhook on: April 26, 2010 09:10:27 AM
Alright resin masters... I have a question... I have searched and searched and found nothing like this on the board.  How on earth did this person layer the glitter? I am still new to resin but I thought that this idea was pretty genius!!!

4  My New Twirly Skirt... is too big :'( in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by iheartcapnhook on: August 27, 2008 07:16:55 AM
I just got a job working for Viking Sewing Machines inside Joann's.  I'm pretty stoked.  I figured I would wear clothes that showcase the machines ability as sort of a selling point.  So, I made my newest twirly skirt. When grabbed the elastic for the waistband, I grabbed the wrong piece and now the skirt is too big Sad   I love the fabrics and just wanted to show off how awesome this line of fabric is!!!  It is CottonCandy by Sweetwater for Clothworks Fabrics which I got from the local quilt shop.

7  "It's Never too late" Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by iheartcapnhook on: August 18, 2008 12:32:15 PM
After years upon years of the weight yo-yo, my girlfriend has decided to go in for the lap band procedure.  To celebrate the beginning of the new Brett, and her new lifestyle, her being able to go outside and play with her toddler, I was commissioned by some friends to make her a quilt.  "It's never too late to be what you might have been...." 



Close up of the embroidery




The only "Overhead" picture I took which shows off the attic window the best is in the unfinished stage


Lastly, a close-up of the individual square


This was my first attic window.  I was surprised how relatively easy it was to make!  I stitched in the ditch the "window frames" and free form quilted on the white areas.  I've never made a giant quilt before!  I'm very pleased with how it turned out! 
Thanks for looking!!!!  Cheesy

9  Mmmm..... Blueberry Jam in Recipes and Cooking Tips by iheartcapnhook on: August 01, 2008 08:18:07 AM
I don't really sit down much. If I'm not working with or playing with the kids, I'm cleaning and in between the kids and cleaning, there are the crafts.

Last night, I put the kids to bed and pulled out 6 cups of fresh blueberries. It was time...


Take room temperature berries and smush the daylights out of them. Add 4 cups of sugar and bring slowly to a boil.


Once the berries start to boil, turn up the heat, and boil until it reaches the gelling point (when the jam sheets off a spoon held away from the steam).


Ladle it into hot jars, attach lids, and stick into boiling water making sure to have an inch or two of water over the top of the jars.


Boil jars in water for 15 minutes. Remove. Let sit for 24 hours. Check the seals on the jar by pushing the center. Hide the jars from the kids so they have no idea you have made such a special treat.


The following morning, wake kids up early exclaiming about the special surprise and they have to get out of bed before the breakfast train leaves. When they sit down half asleep in the chairs, present them with toast smothered in jam!!!

10  Every Kitchenaid Stand Mixer MUST HAVE a Cover... right?!?! :) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by iheartcapnhook on: July 29, 2008 10:28:15 AM
My partner for the Midsummer Madness IYP Swap REALLY wanted a cover for her kitchenaid stand mixer.  I mean, who wouldn't want a cover?  She really wanted to embroider something on the front, so I used my skills and came up with the perfect cover for her.  This was my first time using piping and I think it turned out fairly well! 

I can't wait to see what SundayAfternoonHous ewife embroiders on the front!!!!

From the side:


From the Front:


The cover was modeled on my egg mcmuffin cooking toaster with some paper towels crammed on top to keep it up Smiley
