It's a pocket! I like that the zipper teeth are big enough to sort of look like real teeth when his mouth is open. That was stash too.
I have a small box totally full of 1/4s and scraps of all kinds and a shelf of interesting old sheet, bits of woven fabric and flannels I've picked up here and there. Then there is a rainbow mountain of fleece all from old jackets from the thrift store. I use that a lot though, I don't really want to destash it all in a hurry, just as I use it up. I've got a pile of really wierd clothes cut up too, lots of monsterish prints. I can't believe how horrible those garments are but the uglier it is the better it is for creepy cute creations.

Those lil monsters are so cute CLM! I love the fabric on the black one, and a pocket zipper mouth is adorable! The bird wall hanging is great too, did you turn the edges under on the applique or is it raw edge?

I wish I'd gotten a better pic of the colour 'cause that sucker is dark purple.
I did turn the edges under on the bird, I wanted it to be crisp and since I hadn't ever tried it with the raw edge I wasn't sure about fraying. I know there is stuff to stick the fabric down but I didn't use any this time round. I'll be doing it again though, I like how it turns out.
Oh wait, I did do a heart once on a needle book. The edges were turned under on that too though. And it was an easy shape I found, these ones were wonky to work with a bit.
I machine stitched around the bird so that it and the cage would show on the back too but it is very light. I should have hand stitched all of that with embroidery thread to make it more distinct I think.

Anyhow, back to work!

The monsters are just so creative!  You have some imagination!  I love the pink one, actually...

and the birdcage applique is wonderful...I have done quite a few appliques but I never turn under the edges...I found that if I use heat bond, it seems to fuse the edges shut..I also use a weird stitch all around...it looks like a funny big blanket stitch...

Excellent projects...and all from stash!

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

My doll measures 14"...I took  a few pics...the doll is my first given to me by my nanny when I was in Germany...so she is about 52 years old! Cheesy

A lovely crochet dress or maybe a velvet dress--that would use up a bit of stash!

Aw, she is quite adorable. I can understand why she is precious to you. Smiley

I love the monsters, CLM!

I'm trying to figure out how to make roses out of velvet similar to these. I really like the look of them. I found a couple of tutorials last night that were close, but hubby closed the window and for some reason I can't find it in history. I think he may have navigated away from the window I had open to look at something he wanted to delete when he was done looking at it so our kids would not find it in history. Men... Roll Eyes It is nowhere to be found, and I can't even find or remember the search string I used. Everything else I looked at yesterday is still in history. I wish I had bookmarked the site.  Cry

Here is where I first saw them. I bought the magazine partly because I hoped I'd learn how to do them, but there is no tutorial in there. I think they would be cute to put on fall craft projects. I have velvet scraps in my craft room doing nothing. I found out long ago that I hate to sew with velvet.  But I'd love to make flowers like these from it.


I think they are super-cute, and a great way to de-stash difficult or temperamental fabric scraps. Have you seen a tutorial for flattened roses like these that are sewn together? I think this is a fold and tuck and sew method, not the gluing and rolling method of construction. How would you make these? Smiley

Those are beautiful but crap, I have No idea how you'd make them. Most fleurs like that are folded over and over out of ribbon, the raw edge on the velvet wouldn't work for that. Unless you sewed it into a tube and followed a regular ribbon rose tutorial? Might be worth a try with scraps to see if ti works.

I think they might be sewn to a base fabric as they are created in an outward spiral fashion. I will try to see if I am lucky while searching for a tute.
