1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Super Stealthy on: August 29, 2008 01:35:47 PM
This is my 3rd time doing a freezer paper stencil and I am falling more & more in love with the technique.

I love ninjas! After getting several shirts during a twofer deal at Michael's I googled ninja images and fell in love with this one. She came out super cute!

Ignore the wrinkles, they are from the sheet underneath.

She looks wet, but it is just the camera flash.

I wore it today and a couple people have complimented me on the shirt. I loved telling them that I did the stencil!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Travel Bag on: April 14, 2008 11:25:37 AM
So, I had a nice long weekend. My usual distraction was out of town, so I had to keep myself busy for once - crafting was involved.

Lookie at the purty new bag!!


I love it. I used this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178244.0) pattern. This is my second attempt as this tutorial, but I didn't include the zipper before. I also went a bit more light on pleating this time and increased the size. I wanted a more duffel bag sort of feel.

My cellphone fits perfectly in the handy pockets.

And the inside is nice & roomy. The lining and outside fabric (with the print) is actually brown and white...even though it seems a bit more black in the pictures (trust me - it is a very deep brown). If I do this pattern again I am going to add inside pockets.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Chocolate crochet hook roll on: February 12, 2008 05:45:35 PM
I made this for my mother-in-law's growing hook collection.

All rolled up

There is a funky crease in the picture...it doesn't normally look that way...musta rolled it weird


I wish I had made the top flap a bit bigger and used a brown button so it stood out more. Nex time!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pleated Bag on: February 12, 2008 05:41:00 PM
I made this bag from applesaregreen tutorial for my mother-in-law's crochet projects. I didn't do a zipper, because I am still afraid of them  Tongue

I like how it turned out, but the next one I am definatly putting in a zipper and I am going to add interfacing.

looks a little wonky here, but it isn't like that

the insides

I think not having a zipper made the shape a bit odd.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Evil Pillowcase on: January 24, 2008 08:31:49 PM
I made this for my hubby for x-mas. Finally got around to posting it. Sorry about the crappy photos...it has been raining in South Cali for over 4 days (we even got hail today)!

Both of them together

His name is Joey

Close up of the horns - this one got really washed out...and you can see some of the markings where I adjusted the way I wanted to sew (they will wash out)

Evil one - this one got washed out also

Close up of a skull

Everything was pretty much done in a backstich. I marked the design directly onto the pillowcases and followed along altering where I thought I needed to. I didn't want everything to be perfectly even on both sides and think I accomplished that  Tongue

Let me know what you think! He seemed to like them
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mohawk Dude on: January 09, 2008 04:25:29 PM
This little guy is inspired by the ninja pillows I saw on craftster awhile ago. He stands about 3 inches

We have been spotted!


Side shot

The pictures are a bit blurry, but I don't feel like taking them again  Tongue I have a whole family of mohawk dudes in mind
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Calendar Envelopes on: January 08, 2008 10:55:36 AM
I had this calendar with gorgeous pictures I couldn't bring myself to toss after the New Year. So they became envelopes. Only problem is they are too pretty to use now  Shocked

The whole group

A few of my favorites




Backsides. I didn't line them because I liked the look of the dates peeking out
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Framed fabric information on: October 15, 2007 09:58:40 AM
I am not sure these would fall under embroidery or not, but it was my best guess.

My grandmother use to have these fabric art pieces framed on her wall. They were fabric with little deers and the deers had some sort of stuffing behind them that puffed them out. I would love to make some of these with a more modern piece of fabric.

Anyone have any idea what they are called so I can do some research?
9  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Canvas Shoe Question on: October 12, 2007 01:37:46 PM
I am sure this has been asked, but I can't seem to find any posts that would help me.

I would love to pretty up a pair of my boring black canvas Vans (the slip-on version) and since I embroider that was my obvious choice. Now my question, can anyone tell me from experience if I should try and use a stabilizer? I would think the canvas would be strong enough, but would hate to have it pucker!

Thanks in advance and sorry if this is a duplicate question.
