1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Quilt block holder carrier... thing on: September 10, 2008 11:03:13 AM
So, I made this for my Mom for her birthday back in february, but never got around to posting it.  She was looking online at a pattern for something like this, to carry these really cool animal appliqu blocks she's been taking a class on. I saw the pic, and thought, hey I could probably do that! So, I cut up a giant frosted flakes box into two squares, covered them in felt (for padding), cut two big rectangles of purple fabric, sewed elastic, vinyl, and four rectangles of felt to the one going in the middle, handles and a velcro closure to the one going on the outside, sewed the rectangles together, with the frosted flakes inside, and BOOM! Its done. Grin

Here's the outside when its closed

A close up of the handle and closure

Here's a not so great pic of it laying open, (oh yeah, that on the right is one of the blocks, not sewn together yet. I gotta check if I can put pics of her finished animal blocks up here, 'cause they're seriously awesome!)

This is that left side, the white stuff is elastic to hold her spools of thread. I was also originally going to put a pocket or something to the right of that, but I think I ran out of fabric. (or was it time? I finished this like the day before her birthday)

On the other side, it has a clear vinyl pocket to put her papers, or whatever else she wants.

So yeah, she said she loved it(she is my mom), and I think it came out good. Some of the sewing was a little sloppy, but I think if I had more time I would have done it better (maybe).

So, what do you think?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Kirby Hat (kinda big pics) on: January 15, 2008 02:36:55 PM
So, I came up with the idea to knit my brother a kirby hat, now this idea only came to me like 3 or 4 days before Christmas (of course Tongue). And we were going to see family most of Christmas eve, so I made this in about 2 days. Its improvised, and I think it turned out pretty good.

Anyway, onto the pics-

here's the front-

closer up of the face-

and its feet Grin

Its supposed to look like its holding on to the persons head, but I'm not sure how well that worked, oh well.

Please tell me what you think!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hogwarts crest hoodie on: December 09, 2007 06:19:08 PM
My first topic! I hope it works. anyway I looked through some tutorials for hoodies on here but I really just made this up as I went (which is pretty much how I do everything Grin). no before pics but you can see it on http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/store/product.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302028399&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442162079&bmUID=1197251481703
on the hot topic web site if you really want to, it was just a t-shirt with the Hogwarts crest. But I kinda needed a hoodie so I added on sleeves, put in a zipper, put on the hood, and and did the edge parts, and got this! I'm pretty quiet on here and haven't got my 10 posts yet so heres the links

and an action shot,

I still need to fix part of the sleeves (can't yet, because I used up the last of my black thread on this) and I kinda want to put in a lining, 'cause its not really that warm, but either way I still love it.
Please tell me what you think!
