3  Dogs Playing Poker Pot Holders in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: January 22, 2017 11:05:33 AM
We've been needing new pot holders for awhile and having a house sitter in a couple of weeks motivated me to throw together a couple of new ones so she can safely feed herself!



The backs are quilted ironing board fabric, it's very heat-resistant and thick! There's a layer of cotton batting between.

Heck with the list, I just made this. All from stash, too!

5  Leather & Ring Cuff in Completed Projects by TheMistressT on: January 20, 2017 08:32:27 PM


I was looking at my accessories pinboard searching for some crossbody bags for an upcoming trip and came upon a pin for this (knock-off?) leather bracelet earlier today and then tonight I was bored so I went into my craft space to work on a stamp project. So, I made this! D'oh!



I was given a bag of leather scraps by a friend who worked at a custom furniture manufacturer and was inspired by some shoes I am hoping to get that are also a light blue color.



I had everything I needed, so FREE PROJECT! YEY!

I'd have liked it even more if I had a bigger O-ring laying around, but I didn't.

Ahh!  I am fangirling all over the outfits, Mistress T!  They go with the story so nicely!

THANK YOU! Here is a link to some shots from the promo photo shoot we put together with neighbors and friends! I am terrible at being a Fan-with-a-capital-F, but I have been having fun making "fan art" for the book!

I finished my 8th project for 2017! Probably my last for a few weeks as I preparation for The ManFlesh's mini book tour to deal with! Anyway, A couple of draft blockers to get us through winter until I can tackle "properly" fixing the door gaskets, etc.





All from materials on-hand, except I had to buy a bit more rice.

Ear warmers!? Why didn't I think of that? I've lots of fleece scraps, 2 ears, and live in the Rockies. Duh!

I threw together a couple of draft blockers using all scraps (well, the rice inside isn't exactly "scraps" since it's uncooked, but still!



Hangs on the door knob when it needs to be out of the way:


And a plainer one for the upstairs balcony door:

8  Draft Blockers in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: January 16, 2017 02:11:01 PM
I needed a couple of draft blockers to get me through until spring when I can more solidly solve the problem, i.e. take the doors off or having them hanging open for long periods of time. So I dug into my stash and found scraps from other projects to make some on-the-cheap!

Front door:



Loops sewn into the ends for hanging it up.



Upstairs, balcony/guest room:



There's a weird door knob thing going on with that door, so I added these D-rings for hanging it. I intend to add a hook by the door for that.



Both are made with the brown quilted material, but the front door version is covered with another layer of material to help deal with dog hair and the kind of dust we get from living in the country.

Why does it seem like knitters and crocheters have the easiest stashes to bust? Maybe the biggest stashes, too. Wink



I made the cosplay (I'm calling it "cospup") suit for Delia almost entirely out or remnants and stash! It matches the suit I made for The ManFlesh for promoting his upcoming debut novel and it is giving me giggle fits every time I look at a picture! The only thing I bought was wide, extra-strong hook & loop tape for fastening on the sides.



There are full posts with excruciating detail photos for both projects in the costume section of the clothing board, should you feel like having an excruciating look!

Everyone's things look so nice and well made! I can't list all of them, or I'll run out of time before I have to work on my next project! I have now finished 7 already this year! I know I won't keep this pace all the time, but it feels good to start strong. I may even have 8 by the end of the day.  Shocked



My best project this year so far is this cosplay outfit for Delia (cospup!) that I made to match the suit I made for The ManFlesh for promoting his debut novel, Dr Potter's Medicine Show. I did a post for it in the Costumes section of the Clothing board with tons of detail shots and the human suit is in that section, too.



It just keeps cracking me up!
