Very cute, I like the one with the bow tie & hearts & the bird one is darling! Great job!

Yay! Stuff is showing up in the gallery. This is always the best part. :D

I love the bow tie, I mean, Doctor Who... who doesn't love that? And the birds are very cute!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on April 14, 2014 02:46:14 PM
Nice patches! Dr. Who stuff is always fun, and as a big fan of science and nature themes, I love the birds, too!

And, here are my fantastic, perfect-for-me, science-themed patches from artsycandice. I absolutely love them, and she did an amazing job with the stitching!



It may be hard to see in the photo, but the surface of the earth even has some continents stitched on it. And, the background fabric of that same patch has little tiny blue stitches on it, too. Spectacular job!

Thank you so much, Candice!

Now, I want to spend my vacation making more science-themed patches so I can make my classroom wall hanging by the end of the year! Probably won't happen, but I can dream :)


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: Sharalee on April 14, 2014 05:25:22 PM
"artsycandice" You did super job on those patches! I love the world one with the different layers of the earth. The other one is cute too!!

Um, I am seriously in love with that patch.  Here's my little Saganite wearing my, now hers, C. Sagan signed sweatshirt. https://www.flickr.com/photos/uofcard/13629770193/in/set-72157632715516367

Crazyda79 has been so patient with me in getting my photos posted.  I had plans to do it while at the lake but left my camera at home.....complete idot.... without further ado here are my fantastic patches!!!!!!!!
 
Frogs hold a special place in my heart!

This one is sew......cute!!!!!

This one is my favorite......I love the pearl bubbles!!!!!

Thank you so much for wonderful patches and patience!!!!!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on April 20, 2014 07:16:20 PM
What a great set of patches! I, too, am partial to frogs :)

I've got my pillows all stitched up (I think I made them a little more matchy-matchy than TM would approve of ;D ). Tomorrow night, I hope I can start embellishing them (I think I'll start with the one that might be easier). I think I can do a bit more on Tuesday, but then not again until Thursday night, at the earliest. I don't know how I thought I'd get a lot of crafting done over this vacation...I'm trying to squeeze it all in between everything I've been putting off that really must get done!

These patches are just too cool. Scraps off the floor...well, mine are in wicker baskets  ::). Wine in the glass. Needle {sewing style} in the hand. What a wonderful weekend project. Quick as I get my other projects finished...just 3 to go...I would be up for some trades.  ;D Loving the eye candy until then.

~T

Ooops. And loving that frog, too. Had to take a second peek. I've kissed some, and didn't get warts  :D Nor did I get the darn prince that I wished for.  ::)

I agree! And, they are a great project for using up scraps! But, it seems as though I don't have a lot of scraps... I think I need to do some more sewing :)


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: Sharalee on April 21, 2014 10:11:31 AM
'Crazyda79" your patches are so cool! Love the frog one sitting on the lily pad so cute, I love the sewing one close to my heart & the fish one is so cute, the bubbles are darling!
Great job!!  :D

I'm just about done, on my last one out of 6. Didn't realized how much embroidery I'm putting into each patch piece. Taking longer than I thought. I should be done by tomorrow & send out tomorrow too.

Very cool eye patch!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on April 23, 2014 07:06:06 AM
Cool cat shaped patch! And, I really like the swirly bits on the eye patch (and the red background fabric, too). And, it looks like you got a lot of fun fabrics in the kit, too :)


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: Sharalee on April 25, 2014 08:42:55 PM
 I love all your cool TM Patches "DaphadillyAty" The Cat one is darling, & love the eye very cool & the sewing one very cute! Great Job!! :D

I received from my Partner "Abbeeroad" I love them so much!! :D they are from my TCM theme! They are so tiny & delicate. I also received a great kit!  With all sorts of lovely things. Fabrics, buttons, charms, floss & veragated floss I've wanted but couldn't find any. Thanks so very much. :)
OK here's the pics:










Thanks again, it was fun swapping with you! Yours will be coming soon!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on April 26, 2014 01:03:22 PM
I love those TCM patches! I especially like the one on the right. And, that looks like a fantastic kit! My brain is already pairing up the fabrics for the pillows.


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: gamemom42 on April 26, 2014 02:18:50 PM
I received from both my partners (one quite a while back ) but I've been having one of those "can't keep up with life" phases and I'm just now posting pics.

artsycandice sent patches based on my Christmas theme and my bees/honey/hives theme.  I adore them both and I feel terrible for not commenting as soon as I received them.  Candice, I love them so much that I took them to a celebration dinner and forced everyone there to hold them and admire them.  It's hard to make people who aren't into patches understand the appeal but your patches got lots of oohs and aahs that night.





goldensunshine sent three patches based on my themes of crows/ravens/vultures,  70's anything,  and bees/honey/hives.   Again; I love each and every one and couldn't even try to pick a favorite.  I will say though that I was especially thrilled to get the crow because this is the first patch I've gotten in that theme.




Thank you so much ladies and I'm really sorry I've been such an absent swap partner.  I'm still plugging away at your patches and should be able to make the new (thankfully later) deadline.






Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: artsycandice on April 26, 2014 02:27:24 PM
Oh yay!! I'm so glad you love them. I had a lot of fun with those.

I love the crow silhouette too and another bee one! You've got some fun themes there.

Here's a close-up of the bee...



Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on April 26, 2014 04:02:36 PM
What a fantastic set of patches! I am especially in love with the bee patch and the beehive patch. Bees need all the love they can get :)


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: Sharalee on April 27, 2014 12:13:27 PM
How cool are those patches!! Christmas one if cute! The bee one is cool on her honeycomb. The Peace sign is rad! Another Beehive & bee very nice & the great crow!!

Awesome work on all of those's!!

Post by: CraftyMamaBee on April 27, 2014 02:33:45 PM
I received from Abbeeroad on Friday, but I was getting ready for a Baby Shower I threw yesterday and just finally got some rest and downtime today! Here are the awesome Disney and Woodland themed patches she made for me!

The fox is actually a piece of silk screened fabric she received from SheepBlue! These are awesome patches! Little did she know I will be at the "Magical Kingdom" this Thursday for our 4-Year Wedding Anniversary! So the kissing Mickey and Minnie are so fitting! I might just have to pin it to my bag for the day!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: noodle-bug on April 27, 2014 04:15:25 PM
That honeycomb stitching is great, and i love the mouse silhouettes


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery

wow cool patches - love all the different designs.

When I saw the fox image, I actually had to stop and check to see if SheepBlue was in the swap... and then I saw your explanation :)

Fabulous set of patches- they are all great, but I am definitely partial to the fox (although the Mickey & Minnie and Tinkerbell ones are great, too, but I just love science & nature themed stuff the most :) ).


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: angielou1 on April 27, 2014 09:26:25 PM
New patches to see :). Loooove them. They're all so different.

Haha, I made sure to give credit to sheepBlue in my note, too! Just spreading her awesomeness!!

Love the honeycomb bee patch and of course, the peace sign! ;D


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: noodle-bug on April 29, 2014 03:43:55 AM
My themes are all based on my favourite tv shows (I'm making a cover for my dvd folder)... Goldensunshine did a great job, see decided to stitch up some show titles in their logo format. I really like the bold colour choices and clean lines, it makes them really eye catching


We decided not to swap a patch making kit, but some fabric swatches instead - I'll use mine to make hexies - she picked out some great fabrics for me :-)


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: Sharalee on April 29, 2014 05:58:47 PM
Those are very bright colors & the logos are great! Great work "Goldensunshine" neat extras!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on May 01, 2014 02:11:41 PM
Those patches are great and I love how different they all are, too. Good idea to swap fabric swatches! Maybe next time, I'll be able to do a kit or something :)


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: CraftyMamaBee on May 01, 2014 05:09:31 PM
I'm taking note of all the awesome patches! I am just in love with the bee one!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: crazyda79 on May 02, 2014 12:12:27 AM
Prepare to be in awe and in love!  These patches are amazing.  It was like a swappers Christmas yesterday!  

Fabulous Kill Bill and Narwhal patches from goatgoddess
 


Super beautiful butterfly, beach scene and daisies from quaggy!  


I am in awe and in love for sure!  I am even impressed that out of five patches, not one theme was repeated!  Great job ladies.  Thank you so much for my first sets of TM patches.


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: Alexampersandra on May 02, 2014 06:54:10 AM
I received mine from goatgoddess too!


Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy theme! I love this!!!


And, appealing to my librarianness!

Such pretty colors! Such neat stitching! Such beautiful fabric! Thank you goatgoddess!!!  ;D


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: Sharalee on May 02, 2014 11:45:32 AM
"goatgodess" they're all so pretty & nicely sewn. I'm partial to the butterfly one & the beach one, the Galaxy theme & the reading ones are darling too! Great job!

Well I received from "angielou1" She did a great job! I love that it's mostly in TCM Theme, I love the old movies. The fairy is really cute with her wings, & the kit with more fabric for more patches & some more wings & lots of floss. Thanks so much "angielou1"
Here are the pics:





The fairy one up close.





Thanks so much It was fun being partners!
It's amazing how everyone is so creative in making the patches so differently & they are all so pretty!! Awesome job everyone!!

 


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on May 02, 2014 02:27:36 PM
What an abundance of great patches!

I love the narwhal (and goatgoddess, what a great way to finish the edges!), and that beach scene is like a picture. And, the Hitchhiker's Guide one is fabulous (How did you get the image onto the fabric? Or, where did you find the fabric?). I like the TCM themed ones, too (especially the chair... I need a chair like that in my living room!).

I have a small pillow all set to go (I had an extra one ready, just in case), but I need to think about what I want to put on it. I'll be thinking about something science-y that will be the perfect thing... it's long and narrow, so maybe a heartbeat pattern, or a sound wave...


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: DaphadillyArt on May 02, 2014 04:31:46 PM
I got super spoiled today! My patches came and they are so awesome and so me!!



Thank you so much Angielou!!! You rock!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on May 02, 2014 05:05:45 PM
Love the sign patches and the silhouettes!

I do love the variety of patches we've been seeing- it's definitely inspiring! If my hand wasn't still slightly cramped from my stitching the other night (I must be getting old :P ), I'd start another one. But, a stack of papers await grading instead :(


P.S. I will be doing another batch of feedback tomorrow morning. I am too tired to do it properly tonight, and my growling stomach just reminded me I haven't had dinner...


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: artsycandice on May 02, 2014 05:28:57 PM
I received from craftADDchick today!! I have to tell you that I love these! The flukes are very fitting. They remind me of my quirky new-age aunt who always had a whale tail pendant on when I was little. And... I love humpbacks. ;) The owl is my favorite though. I seem to be acquiring more and more work that features barn owls. They speak to me in a way that other owls don't. Thank you, thank you. I loved doing this swap and will definitely do it again on the next go-round.





Ugh. I'm sorry they are so blue. New pictures later. New pictures posted!

Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on May 03, 2014 09:39:24 AM
Whew! I'm glad they arrived safely (and a day earlier than expected). That whale patch took a lot of time to stitch (mostly because my embroidery skills are out of practice), and I would not have been able to do it again if they had gotten lost :)

And, once this round is wrapped up, I'll take a look at the calendar and then start a next one! I have the end of the school year craziness coming up, so I need to make sure I don't hamstring myself ;D


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: goatgoddess on May 05, 2014 09:10:13 AM
you can treat the fabric so you can print it out from your inkjet
but I'm lazy so I buy the pretreated cotton sheets with a 40% off coupon from Michales.  ;D

will be watching when you have your next round  -  Thanks for all your work craftADDchick :)

Thanks for the tip! I'll have to look for them, and then see if my inkjet still works... I do not have good luck with inkjet printers...

You're welcome! :) And, I think I might be able to get the next round started before the end of the month!

Oh MY Gosh!!! :o "Sharalee"  :-* I am so awed by these that I don't know what to do...Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!

First the contents of the Kit
great fabric, especially BEST FRIENDS :)

embellishments... I never have any

close-up


from  MY LOVE OF DOLLS AND SEWING

from CATS

and my favorite MALEFICENT

There is sooo much embroidery and attention to the details I am flabbergasted! How I wish I could have sent the original patches  :'(
There was leather and gold and pearls and velvet....Seeing these patches and how great they all are make me want to continue practicing embroidery. :-\
THANK YOU "SHARALEE" I LOVE YOUR STLYE AND FEEL  ENCOURAGED TO CONTINUE WORKING ON TEESHA MOORE PATCHES AND BECOME AS GOOD AS YOU!!!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: Sharalee on May 05, 2014 06:15:18 PM
I'm so glad you received them! Thank you for all the nice compliments. I really loved making your TM Patches, especially the dolly & her clothes &  Maleficent It really came together very easily & I all most did't want to send it, but I knew it was going to a good home!

I'm so glad I have inspired you to keep on with your embroidery. You should of sent your first patches I bet they were much better than you think, I love the ones you did send though. It just take practice, & more pratice. It's real relaxing to me.   

Well hope to see you in the next round! It was fun being your partner!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: angielou1 on May 05, 2014 06:24:55 PM
Thank you again "Sharalee" but they were NOT up to par as you say. I tried some decoupage and gold leafing but I am just to inexperienced with mixed media crafting and messed up. But I am going to practice more because girl you the bomb and I would love to be partnered with you again but I want to be able send ones compareable to yours next time ;D


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on May 05, 2014 06:28:13 PM
I love how 3-dimensional those patches are (which just gave me an idea for a particular science patch!), and that Maleficent patch is my favorite! You got a lot of great stuff in your kit, too (especially all of the swirly embellishments!). Great stuff!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: goatgoddess on May 07, 2014 02:31:27 AM
got my patches from Alexampersandra - love them thank you so much!!

first up in my Harry Potter theme - The Sign of the Deathly Hallows is a triangular mark used as a representation of the Deathly Hallows, three legendary objects that allegedly, if united, would make one the "Master of Death". The sign is actually composed of three separate marks that, united, make up the sign. The Elder Wand is represented by the straight vertical line, the Resurrection Stone by the circle surrounding it, and finally a triangle enclosing them both to represent the Cloak of Invisibility. quoted from http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Sign_of_the_Deathly_Hallows

very well done - thank you!
(http://s407.photobucket.com/user/toplinegoats/media/20140506_123.jpg.html)

and from my Doctor Who theme - only my fav episode with 10th doctor - Don't Blink - love that one
nicely done - love the wings - thank you!

I received from both my partners while I was away! It was wonderful to come home to this awesomeness!

First, from CraftyMamaBee:



She sent a wonderful typed note and three patches. Close ups:

BENDER!



Om:



And trees:



They are wonderfully done and perfectly me. Love um!

And next from the very generous Sharalee:



A flower patch that reminds me of Maui (perfect as I JUST got home!), and I just LOVE this skiing patch:



And a space-inspired patch with lots of texture:



AND, she sent me a ton of doo-dads in my patch kit:



Close up of the fabrics:



A close up of the charms, buttons, and misc.:



Thank you so much, Sharalee, I love everything.

You rock, ladies! Thanks so much to both of you. And thanks for understanding my delay in getting this post up!  :)


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: artsycandice on May 08, 2014 08:27:19 AM
What fun patches!!

I have to admit that I am torn between the tree patch and Bender! I love how unrelated they all are. Too fun!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap Gallery
Post by: craftADDchick on May 08, 2014 04:21:32 PM
Bender is fabulous!!! The om patch is fabulous, too :) And, I love the fabric on the tree patch- I never thought about outlining something already printed...I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for some fun science-themed fabric. And, I spy more swirly items in the bag of "doo-dads!" Excellent! I also really like the star fabric, and that little skier is so cute (I do love sign graphics!).

Only a few more patches need to make it to their destinations, and then I can think about starting the next round! :)

"Alexampersandra" Your patches are pretty cool. I like signs & the wings are cute on the second one! Great Job!  :)

CraftMamaBee" your patches are very cute, love the little Bender guy & the tree one is great! Cool Patches! ;)

"Abeeroad" I'm so glad you like your TM Patches & all the accessories, some are old earing settings & some old jewelry & some things I found that I forgot I had. So it was fun making your patches & being partners with you! Thanks  :D

I received from my second partner today, gamemom42, two adorable patches! First is a little owl perched on a branch. This one must have taken awhile as the background is stitched with little tiny leaves. The second one is very cheerful for spring, which I would love to see right now as it is drizzly outside again. It features a dragonfly bead and a little flower. Thank you very much partner!

The new patches are great! I like Bender and Skiing.
I really need to know how "Sharalee"does her 3-D embellishments.

I totally forgot that I was receiving another package today from my partner, Gamemom42! I love them!!
Pretty orange flowers!

This patch is made from bits and pieces of old wedding dress, I really love the the way it is made!

Really small stitches- flowers and a cute snail!


Thank you gamemom42! That's it for me, and I hope another swap will be coming up soon!!

"gamemom42" your patches are pretty neat! I like the owl on the tree & the Spring one with the cute dragon fly & sunshine, & the all the others are cute too & well sewn!

The new patches are great! I like Bender and Skiing.
I really need to know how "Sharalee"does her 3-D embellishments.

I'm not sure what you mean "angielou1" about the patches & being 3-D embellishments. ???  Like on the skiing one I put the snow hill on top of the little pillow & sewed it all down around the edges so it's still puffy & then made xxx's over the other part to make it flater & then put the skier on top. Hope that helps. ;)  Sometimes I wish we all live closer to each other so we get together & show each other different things that we know! That would be so fun!!

I love the patches you ladies got from gamemom42! I like the combination of the button embellishments with the stitching. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for cute buttons and charms now, too :)

My patches arrived from Cindibee!  Perfect so me!  I just love the way she packaged the TM patch kit, sewn together fabric with thread,  Such a fun package.






I love them all and not sure which is my favorite.  Maybe the fish!!!!  No the mushroom, wait wait the skull!!!!!

Cindibee has just moved so I am posting what I sent her way!!!!!!!!!








Thanks for such a fun swap!!!!!!!!!

Quaggy, thank you so much for posting those photos for me. Your package was AMAZING and I was blown away by what you sent! I can't wait to make some patches out of the great fabric you sent!

I'm so glad you love your patches!

"cindbee" Your patches are so pretty. I love them & so well sewn, the cute little dominoes are darling. The kit looks fun!

"quaggy" Those patches of yours are fabulous!! Love the owls & guitar & the sewing one with all those cute buttons just to cute. That kit is just Awesome! Did you buy it that way or did you just buy the case & put the things in it! Just curious? I think we were partners once & you gave me a fantastic kit that time too! I might be wrong!

Post by: craftADDchick on May 12, 2014 03:33:57 PM
quaggy, your patches from cindibee are so much fun! I, too, am torn between all 3 in choosing a favorite (although the fish & mushrooms have a slight edge over the skull) :) And, you're right, her method of packaging the kit is fabulous! Bonus fabric and floss in the wrapping!

And, I love what you sent to cindibee, too. What a great combo of stitching and embellishments (love the tape measure bow). Plus, your kit of supplies is just too cute! Where did you find it?

I think we are almost wrapped up with this swap, so this weekend, I'll take a peek at the calendar and see what I can fit in for the next round!

I love that you both exchanged similar colors. It seems to have been a perfect pairing! Beautiful patches ladies.

For those of you who know me through the site I am a hoarder and buy all kinds of stuff when I find it on sale.  The little case with glass bottles was found at Tuesday Morning  a shop here in Texas not sure about other states.  I think I have seen them at Hobby Lobby though.  I knew it would be perfect for a small sewing kit and it just worked out for this swap.  I added all the beads, needles and such.

Yes Sharalee we have been partnered in a patch swap you are not wrong.  I have been collecting patches for a while, plans are to stitch them into a wall quilt.

Yes cindibee and I were perfect partners, brights are good!!!  She took my themes and ran with them.  Count me in when the next round begins and I will have to search for some more of those little cases!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The new patches are great! I love the skull and skully with sewing scissors fabric patches.  I would love to be in the next swap also. I'll need to practice more of course and stick to the basics :D

I love the way Cindibee layered and stitched around her central image on each patch. I might steal this idea!

Great patches all around. So much color!

Thanks "quaggy" For telling me & I thought we were partners. I also buy things when I see them & get little things like that. So cute, we also have a Tues. Morning & a Hobby Lobby here in Eastern Washing State & I've only been a couple times to each. I usually go to Joann's or Wal-Mart which is the closest. That'll be a neat Wall Quilt "quaggy" when you get it done.

Yes count me in too for another TM patch Swap!

We're just waiting on the arrival of one more package of patches! Then, I'll look at how my schedule shakes out and set up the next round :D

Can't wait to see them!  And, I just left the last of the feedback, so I'll be taking a look at my calendar to see when I can schedule things. I just found out I have to sign up for a class to fulfill a prior commitment, so I need to make sure I don't jam myself up :)

Oh man, I wish I could join in on the next round, but considering how my move made me be extremely late with this round, and I am STILL getting settled into the new apartment (just found out today the oven doesn't work and they need to replace it!) I will be unavailable for projects for a bit. I thought I could handle this swap but I ended up being so late and I feel horrid about it. I'm glad my partners were understanding!

no problem here cindibee with being late.  Life happens!  Sad if you can't make the next swap as everyone loved your patches and I am happy to say 3 of them are all mine!  Good luck with getting settled in!

Do you miss making TM patches? Round 8 of the Yet Another TM Patch Swap (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451632.0) is open!

It's summertime here in the US, and the swap boards have been pretty quiet. So, we figured it was time for a quick round of the Yet Another TM Patch Swap! Patches are portable and great to take while you're traveling (even to the beach!

We're celebrating the 10th Round of the Yet Another TM Patch Swap, and there's an extra challenge for this round.

As a past swapper, we'd love to have you join in to make this the biggest round of the swap, "Yet!" Even if you only have time to make 1 patch, you can still have fun!

Check it out here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=455350.0
