4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Taggie blankets on: May 17, 2017 09:19:23 PM
I made a bunch of taggie blankets with the same backing, to use up this fabric that I'd previously made a full sized blanket out of. Hopefully the babies will like them.


The back side is this cute red fleece with teddies shaved in.

Details of swap:
For this swap, you'll have two partners, and make two sets of 8 cards, or 16 total. Unlike previous notecard swaps I've done, this time you'll make a distinct SET. Whether that's making eight of the same layout with different papers, or using the same collection of papers with different designs, or a repeating motif, it's up to you. The point is making a obvious group of cards.

Cards must be at least 4x5 inches, or equivalent dimensions. They should definitely be note/birthday card sized, not miniatures. They also need to have envelopes, which can be crafted or premade.

This swap is oriented more towards the maker than the receiver. You don't need to tailor your cards to your partners wishes. In fact, feel free to make them during the sign-up period. That said, please avoid commonly controversial themes; religion, nudity, swearing, etc.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Can you take pictures? If not, please tell your partners to take them before sending out.
Will you avoid potentially offensive themes?
What techniques are you likely to use?
If your partner is inclined to customize cards (not required) what are some themes and colours you like?

Details of swap:
A classic One Tiny Thing swap! You'll be making one thing, and that thing will fit in a metaphorical box with 4x4x4 inch dimensions. Please make something you have a high skill level at, the metaphorical box should be full of something ~awesome~. It should also be full of something to chase the winter away. Flowers, baby animals, chocolate bunnies, eggs, pastels and bold bright colours: if it screams spring that's good enough for me.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Valentine's Day Tote on: March 14, 2017 04:31:17 PM
I wanted something iconically coloured, but with no actual hearts or Valentine's images, so it could be used more than one day a year.

The first thing I decided on was cool handles. This is a really thick (three inches) embroidered trim. I sewed it inside out in a loop, then topstitched it for more stability. It took about a million years to wiggle it right side out again, but the look is worth it.



The outside fabric has wave shaped pink lines:



The inside has three compartments, it's basically sewn like a W:
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First Quilt on: December 29, 2016 10:14:17 PM
I made Thimbles a quilt for the 12 days of Christmas swap. It took much longer than I thought it would. Even cutting everything out was a chore. I didn't have any actual quilting supplies, so I made a 6x6 square pattern piece and cut it out 81 times. There were definitely a few times where I wanted to throw the whole thing into the garbage. Pinning on the extra wide bias tape was especially awful, it didn't catch the bottom a few times on the first sew, so I had to go over the whole thing a second time.

In the end though, I used up some of my miles and miles of Christmas cotton, and made something I'm proud of. Also, I got a board and a ruler and a cutter for Christmas, so the next one should hopefully be easier.



The back is the same white plaid fabric with the bells that's the fourth square in.
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / 3 fandom t-shirts on: December 29, 2016 09:56:07 PM
This Christmas I made my girlfriend of five years a shirt based on her favourite Youtube personality-- GTLive/MatPat. He does analysis of films and video games, as well as streaming gameplay. He ends every theory with this statement:



I also made my best friend a shirt for her favourite fandom. There's a musical show called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and one of the songs is called Face Your Fears. It's a song about insanely dangerous things you should do to show the world you're tough and not scared of anything. Here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrytvZc5Tew
I wrote out the lyrics in bullet format:


Lastly, for the multi-theme swap, I made Ryn a semi-subtle Playstation shirt:
