YAHOO! After we bought our house in Montana, but hadn't yet moved here I was already *pinning ideas for a clothespin holder, because I was so stoked to have a clothesline again! That  was allllllmost 4 years ago and I just finally finished it... a CLOTHES PIN APRON!

I had this "flour" sack in my stash... I got it at the by-the-pound thrift store probably over a decade ago. I just loved it, but never had the right project for it until now. And luckily, I had this green gingham print on hand and enough to make 10' or so of double-fold bias tape.

There was this little pocket sewn onto it and I went ahead and cut the back of the apron using that part. I suppose my phone might go in there and then the little things you find while hanging laundry and don't have a place for, like buttons that have fallen off, broken clothes pins, stuff that's been left in pockets, etc.

And right after I took these photos I loaded it up and hung a load of whites on the line! It worked great and I am glad I decided to go with the apron over hanging bag for my needs.

*As I  mentioned I got the idea from pinterest, but the link on the pin was dead. Luckily the image has measurements enough for me to have made a pattern. But here is a link to the pin with the measurements on it. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/168885054749634378/

Patraw, I keep looking back at how much TLC do not look like a color-by-number. Awesome work!

P_E_S_T did this card and a bonus for my "lady parts with attitude" theme. I love the shapes, colors, and imagery. It is abstract so I don't think it is too racy but I marked it mature to be safe.

EmilyWilde did these fun Mexican Loteria cards. I think La Calavera means fancy decorated skull. Hello Kitty is a perfect choice and then there's a little Star Wars reference for the pointed weapon, Las Jaras.  Grin

The delightful audio has sent me an angel card titled "Reckless Artist", and man! do I love this card! It is full of texture and body, there's shimmery bits, and loads of colour. She's also included a fun card that will live on my workspace, because it is so true. Thank you, audio. You rock!

I am so excited about this print. I love it!! many snitches.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: House pride- quidditch
SPEW: n/a
House: ravenclaw
Project Name: many snitches
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Snitches! This is a lino cut printed onto shibori dyed fabric.

The fabric is 100% cotton, wrapped and tied onto a broom handle to to give that lined effect. I cut a snitch out of lino, printed the gold circles first and then the snitch was printed over the top. I am so excited with how it turned out that I stopped to post this..

off to print more

Is this the same fabric? if it is, then I could be persuaded to go look for it...I take pics of my stash but I am not that great at updating it when I use or give away fabric...my excel schedule says it is a Mary Englebreit fabric and that I have about 1/2 yard...can't promise that I still have it, but I will look when I get home

I bought another one of these fashion plate kits on the 24th, but, as I've been busy lately, I didn't get around to trying it out until yesterday. This one is a fairly recent 2013 Horizon Group USA model (the unit itself has a 2010 date molded on the bottom of the chassis though, so, it's probably a re-release, as it's very unlikely that the company sat on the original molds for four years without putting them intro production). Luckily, it was remarkably complete for a secondhand sample; the 12 double-sided plates, six crayons, rubbing tool, paper, instructions, and even the cardboard packing inserts, were all present and accounted for. The original owner seems to have only used it a handful of times and then discarded it, which is a shame, but that works out to my benefit! I did have some problems with the plates lying flush in the frame though, due to there being plastic flash (undesirable artifacts left over from the sprues used during the plastic injection molding process at the factory in China) on them, but, once I sanded those down with an emery board, everything worked beautifully!

A fun little bonus (at least to me) was that there were still a couple of samples of the previous owner's work inside of the box. They're kind of rough--perhaps the individual didn't hold down the lid tightly enough when she was doing her rubbings and/or the flashing artifacts I just mentioned caused her problems.

Here's a couple that I did, with the included crayons, but they came out too dark/heavy, so I used my colored pencil rubbings instead.

Finally, these are the two that I inked and finished.  I painted them with acrylics, which came out pretty nice. You can still see some of the colored pencil rubbing lines that wouldn't erase, particularly on the floor of the first one, but, as I don't consider these "serious" art, I don't mind the little imperfections. The heads on these girls remind me strongly of Craftster member Spikefan's ATC portraits!

This model is a bit cheaper in design/construction than the previous one I bought, but it's still a pretty nice toy. I was a little disappointed that there weren't any textured plates (to add print patterns to the girls' clothing), but, I can easily use the ones from the other set for that if I really want to, so, it's no biggie. And, while it arguably makes them less versatile, for mixing-and-matching purposes, I do like that these tiles have background scenery/elements on the plates (plants, clouds, a dog, etc.)--if you don't want those, you could carefully just rub the heads/legs to exclude those objects (or just erase them afterwards if you're using a pencil to do your rubbings).
