1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Stained Glass Beauty and the beast Shoes on: June 17, 2017 10:43:24 PM

So I got bored of my other shoes
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451791.0
And took all the fabric off and started over. This times I used a woven cotton. I love this fabric it is so vibrant. I just got it in so I decided to play. I didn't tuck in all the ends instead decided to let it have a bit of a frayed edge. I did a basting stitch around the edges of one of the shoes, but it was really hard going through the new and old glue layers and decided to skip it on the other shoe. But you can't see the difference so its all good.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Rosy skull Purse on: May 24, 2017 09:26:57 PM

Just finished this purse. It's the Louise pattern by Swoon that is May's Bag of the month pattern. I really like the pattern, but the pink irridecent leather was a super pain to sew, it was slippery and sticky all at once.
Also I forgot to add the fleece stabilizer in the side. But I love how it looks and will definitely be making more of this pattern.
Thanks for looking.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Men's boxers on: May 18, 2017 10:49:11 AM

I just finished these boxers. One for hubby (green ones) and the spell ones for my son, though they are both men's, one small one XL. I absolutely love this pattern. And am in love with the Tsums Tsums fabric(from Spoolmonkey), our whole family loves the game. Pattern is from stitch upon a time.

4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / FBC - Fabric Blood Catchers on: May 09, 2017 04:53:10 PM
So there are many reasons to use Fabric pads, my reason is mostly waste however there are health reasons as well.

I have been having a blast making these. And love choosing from all my fun fabrics. These also make great stash busters. These are made form an ITH pattern I bought on Etsy and the stitching takes about 5 minutes.
If I run out, either wash some or stitch up a new one, no late night runs to the store, lol.
I soak them in cold water overnight and wash the next day, and there are no stains.
I am super happy with my new life change and a super bonus, my time is shorter with less flow.

Here is my blog with bit more info

PS: as for the title, FBC - Fabric Blood Catchers, thats what my hubby called them, do you think it will catch on? lol.


5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cute Ruffled Shorts on: May 04, 2017 05:41:06 PM
I made these for my daughter and I love them. This fabric is so cute and those ruffles.

The pattern is from Simple Life pattern company and the fabric is Lilo and Stitch Hawaiian Nights from Spoolmonkey.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My reorganized craft/cutting room on: May 02, 2017 09:13:47 PM
Well, my craft area has always been a disaster. Now it's kinda organized. I needed some place nice to cut my fabrics. So my hubby made me this amazing table. The entire top is end grain, like a cutting board. I can cut on it and it never scratches or cuts the table. And any marks it gets can be easily sanded away every year or so and it's brand new again. Of course my ironing board which is covered with fabric and my server.

It's huge so cuts down on my free space, but I'm okay with that. I have my hoops hanging on the side and you can see my dream machine, which is no tiny machine either.

I covered a wood board with insul-bright and then blue striped fabric and it is so great. I find regular ironing boards are too squishy, this is so firm, it irons beautifully and was so easy to make.

This last is a close up of the top to show the checkered pattern

My room is still a bit of a disaster, but it's my disaster and I hope to clear out a lot of the extra supplies I have that I no longer use.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Naughty Birthday Apron on: April 26, 2017 04:54:21 PM
My Sister asked me to make her a customized apron for a friend of hers for his birthday.
We had a fun time deliberating over mouth size, too little, or too big says something.
It makes me giggle. She is giving it to him next month, I hope he  likes it and doesn't think it's too much.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Towel Topper Tutorial as promised on: April 25, 2017 01:12:39 PM
This is what the towels look finished

First trim the towels and gather the tops.

Then cut 2 toppers from cotton fabric of choice. Sew right sides together, clip, turn and press.
Sew the towel to one side of the topper, right sides together. Then turn under.

Finger press the other side under 1/4" and line up with stitched line on towel. Sew the 3 layers together 1/8" from edge.
Next is the cut out. I machine embroidered a rectangle, but you can Zig Zag around your desired opened like a large button hole. Mine are about 2 cm, but I feel it's a little too wide.

Let me know if it's not clear enough. Thanks
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / FoxPool on: April 20, 2017 02:39:34 PM


To go along with my daughter's Easter Sloth (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452148.0)
I made my son a Fox-pool using another Dolls And Daydreams pattern and Deadpool cotton from Spoolmonkey.
The swords and belts are just felt strips glued together.

I had a lot of fun adjusting the pattern to make him Foxpool and since I just got a brother dream machine, I was able to use the camera feature on my embroidery machine and line up the black eye circles perfectly.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Gotta Wear Them All on: April 14, 2017 05:24:31 PM
My Daughter absolutely LOVES Pokemon, especially Mudkip. So I made this special outfit for her for her Birthday this month.



This Outfit was a ton of fun to make and I sewed it all on my new Dream Machine. I usually use my serger for knits but this pattern needed a bit more control then you can get with a serger. I love the heart cut out on the back and plan to make another top like this soon. Now she wants me to make some matching leggings for her American Girl doll.
