I received from Rackycoo today!  The first inchies I've ever received  Grin


I like them all but I think my favorite are the little boy with the word 'hope' as it reminds me of my sons when they were little and also the leaning tower one.  What you probably can't see very well in this picture is the little bee flying next to it in the upper right hand corner.  I tried to take a close up but it didn't work.

472  A suit of many notes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Homerof2 on: January 14, 2008 08:55:49 PM
I hesitate to even enter this challenge since I'm very new to paper crafts - I've been trying to learn origami over the last year and when I saw this challenge announced, I decided to try my hand at one project I've already done and see what it would look like made from sheet music.

I present to you my Suit of Many Notes!


It is made from clarinet music for the hymn All Hail the Power of Jesus Name.

A close up of the jacket:


and of the pants:


The suit is made from a single piece of 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 music.

A knit dishcloth in bright colors:


and a super cute, very tiny sweater and scarf:

I received some great fabric a few days ago from igobylorib - it will be a wonderful addition to my 'baby' quilt collection

I guess I have to honor of being the first to post a project this year!  I was working on some inchies for an exchange I am doing and realized that they fit in with the January color scheme of 'all the colors of the rainbow' - if you look closely you can see orange, yellow, green, blue and purple (no red, though.)  These were made with fabric and ribbon which was fused onto a piece of denim, cut into 1" squares and then I used a zig zag stitch around the edges.

From the beginning I wanted to make my inchies with fabric because that's what I work with best and so I did some searching and found an idea (then someone else posted a whole bunch of other ideas!)  I won't do all 50 with fabric because I really had fun making the Archie ones and want to do more of that kind.  Anyway, here's some progress pictures.

A piece of fabric with ribbons sewn on in a random pattern:


then, fused onto denim, cut and sewn, a few hours later, the 23 squares that came out of this:


Wow, I never realized how small 1" squares were until I was trying to zig zag around them!

I was playing around this afternoon trying to make some inchies and thought I would post my first few tries on here to see what people have to say.  BE HONEST - is this what they are supposed to be, are these too plain, etc.  I really want comments as I've never done this before.


I have a totally different idea I'm also going to try with fabric and, if they work, that's what I'll probably end up doing but I also wanted to know if something like this would work.  Remember, be honest, it's not going to hurt my feelings!   Grin

So, here it is, December 26th (Boxing Day here in Canada!) and I just realized that I haven't even looked at the gallery for this swap.  So, I looked through all 3 pages (yeah, it was hard to see Dulcinea's feet so many times in such a few pages  Grin ) and realized the item I sent to gatheredthreads wasn't posted yet and I decided to do so.

She wanted something to celebrate her new first name, which she recently officially changed.  What better than a book mark - not only will it remind her what page she's on while reading, it will also remind her of her new name, just in case she forgets  Grin

 Shocked  after telling all of you to remember to post pictures of what you had received, I just realized this morning that I hadn't posted what my second partner sent me.  My excuse - I took the pictures on hubby's camera and he took it to his work truck.  Today I got him to leave it home so I could post.

This is what Moose_hat sent to me:

Not one but TWO stockings!  I just realized you can't see the bell that is attached to the flower one - it makes a pretty sound!


A painted trinket box and 3 cute animals (I think they are made from clay)


The penguin is not attached to the box, he's a magnet and I stuck him onto the clasp before taking the picture.

Some candles, folded paper boxes (each decorated differently) and flower bundles.

I received from Michela today and WOW, did she blow me away with what she sent!  Way beyond what we agreed to but, hey, I'm not complaining.  Prepared to be amazed!!

THE STOCKING (I believe it's knit and it's made very well and, oh, so soft)


She said this as one of her signature pieces and this pictures does not do it justice.  It's beaded and absolutely stunning!  I think it's a poinsetta (I was looking through a post of other flowers Michela has made and came across one that look very similar to this and she said that one was a poinsetta)


3 ornaments - 2 painted blue (the picture doesn't show just how nice they are) and one with penquins all around it (so cute!)


An Amish puzzle ball (I've wanted one of these for a long time)


4 sewn napkins with little snowmen inside mittens


A spider for my Christmas tree (she said her aunt always put a spider on her tree because it was good luck to see one on the tree (I'll have to look this myth up))  I actually got squeemish when I was opening it  Grin


More ornaments - the tree is cross stitch and has 2007 in roman numerals

An itty, bitty, teeny, weeny knit sweater and hanger (so adorable)


Supplies to help with my desire to learn origami (she even folded two cranes herself)


6 wonderful hand made Christmas cards (do you actually expect me to give these away??)


2 containers of cookies (see the 1/2 eaten one on the right) - they are so yummy and since they don't contain chocolate, I don't think I will share them with my family but keep them all for myself!


2 fantastic pieces of fabric (now, what should I make with them?)


Whew, I made it through everything - aren't you amazed with this package??  I sure am!  Do I feel spoiled, you bet I do!!!
