Project Name: Panda PJ bottoms
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I wish I had decided to make this earlier so I could have used another prompt but I will work it into this one.  Tongue When I was little I would sleep in my clothes and drive my mother crazy. Now that I am older I wear proper PJs. I made these and only realized I had the fabric upside down after I took the picture. LOL! No matter. They are for me and I don't mind. I made them way too big and I may go back and cut down the waist band so they don't sag down so long, or I will just make those adjustments on the next pair I make. I am always freezing in the winter and decided to up my warm pj pants collection early this year. Oh, and I added the cell phone pocket. Gotta have those nowadays.  Wink

Project Name: Extra Large Star Bowl Cozy
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: If you have never used a bowl cozy I highly recommend it. These things are amazing. They keep you from burning your fingers on hot bowls in the Winter and we all know that cold weather is just around the corner. My friend asked me for a larger bowl cozy since she uses these really big bowls and the last ones didn't really fit them very well. We both love stars so I used some of the amazing fabric I got from Redheadwithtread to make this one. This was made to celebrate my Friendship with her.

Project Name: Cat Bowl Cozies
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I am always thinking about Christmas. Recently a friend of mine from High School that I had lost touch with started working at the same company as me. She doesn't celebrate Christmas but I know I will want to give her something so I made her some bowl cozies while I was at it. These were also made in friendship but they have cats on them and Kiki's Delivery Service has a cat in it (at least I think it does).

Project Name: Bacon Bowl Cozy
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Another bowl cozy. This is for my long time friend at work. He's a guy and we don't normally exchange gifts at the holidays but if I give the other friend one I would feel bad to not give this one a gift too. Besides, once you use the bowl cozies you realize the are amazing and everyone should have one. Wink  This is Princess Mononoke because I struggle with the winter and the cold but these bowl cozies make it a little better.

Project Name: Carried Away Sierra Cat Bag
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=455742.0
Brief Description: I joined a Bag of the Month Club (details in the link above) and this was the first bag. I was determined to finish it in one day and it took ALL day. THE ENTIRE DAY! I am the worlds slowest sewer but I managed to complete it. I was really happy when I realized I was able to do the entire bag out of my stash too! I've had this cat fabric for a while, just waiting for the perfect purse or craft sewing project. I was happy with the results.  Grin  This is my attempt at making a "cool" cat themed purse.

35  Carried Away Sierra Cat Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: August 20, 2018 08:54:18 AM
 Lately I have not been sewing or crafting. My co-worker quit and my duties at work changed and I have just been drained when I get home. To try to encourage myself to be more productive and to sew again I joined a Bag of the Month Club! It was fate that two of my favorite pattern makers, Swoon & Blue Calla, decided to do a collaboration and offer it up right now. Its for 6 months. It just started and patterns are released on the 15th.
 In case anyone else wants to join its called Carried Away Pattern Collective and here is the link.
https://carriedawaypatterns.com/products/the-everyday-bag-collection
 I got the first pattern and was so excited that I had everything on hand. Yep, complete stash busting project for me! I love when that happens. I have had this awesome paint splattered cat fabric for a while just waiting for the perfect project. I think it turned out really neat looking.
 It has a nice big 9 zippered pocket inside and a convenient slip pocket on the outside. Its very roomy inside. Way bigger than my last purse but I am getting used to it. I still need to make the shoulder strap but I am debating if I will use it or now. It measurement 13" long, 10" tall, 6" deep.
 The pattern seemed overwhelming at first since I haven't really pushed myself lately but it was very well written and easy to understand. If you are using vinyl make sure you have that walking foot!




 Thanks for checking it out! I'm trying to make Crazy Cat Lady a little cooler. LOL! Hopefully I can keep up the momentum and do all 6 months of purses (not all cats though).  Tongue

Project Name: Boyz 4 Now - Boo Boo & Louise Notebook
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=455361.0
Brief Description: If you have seen the episode 'Boys 4 Now' of Bob's Burgers then you know this is the episode that Louise gets her first crush on Boo Boo from the boy band Boyz 4 Now. She has high hopes to meet him just so she can slap his hideously beautiful face out of her mind. I am a huge Louise fan and I am pretty sure she would love this notebook, but secretly because she isn't into a lame boy band.
Project Picture:

 and Louise on the back, freaking out.  Cheesy

 Better pic of the cover on the community post. This is my Level Up #3 for Wordy! YES!!!!!! You can't see me but I am doing the same pose Louise has right now.  Wink

37  Bob's Burgers - Boyz 4 Now - Boo Boo & Louise Notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: July 10, 2018 05:32:44 AM
 I am a HUGE Bob's Burgers fan. It's my go to, feel good show. My favorite character is Louise. So, of course, I am also a huge Boo Boo fan. I couldn't find an image of the poster she is holding after the Boyz 4 Now concert that wasn't a gif that moved so this isn't exact. I watched that gif way too many times, would have made Louise proud (or jealous).
 I recently got a Happy Planner and went sort of nuts with it buy all sorts of extras including the punch. I knew I wanted to make a notebook to sketch random swap ideas in so I order the disc's off Amazon for around $5. I got two sets and that was enough to make 3 notebooks sized at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I also got some lighter weight cream colored cardstock for the pages. Cardstock helps it stay in the discs and prevented bleed thru if I use markers. I got the type that has a linen texture to one side. For some reason I just didn't want plain white pages.
 This is the front. I laminated both the front and back covers too.

 Side

 And Louise going crazy for his hideously beautiful face on the back!  Cheesy  For some reason the pic looks really streaky but it doesn't in real life. Oh well.


and here is a shot of the paper being cut up. Just quartered on the paper cutter at work. Mine at home was too small.

 
 I have two more to make. I told my sister I would make her one. She is picking out her theme.
 Thanks for checking it out!

38  First Try Work Shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: July 09, 2018 06:54:45 AM
 Hello! I sew all the time but up until now I have only slightly dabbled in making clothes. It's a completely different beast than what I normally do. One of my goals this year was to make and wear three shirts to work. I bought a bunch of knits and then chickened out. Nothing is the same! You use a different needle, you cut it out differently (with a rotary cutter), different thread even (heard not to use cotton). On top of all that, it moves an is stretchy and scared me. I didn't even know what iron setting to use (my Mom got lots of calls). I have two shirts cut out. They are sitting there waiting for me to get the nerve up to attempt sewing them.
 I decided to ease my way into it by starting with a shirt that didn't have as much stretch. I had a TON of crepe satin. A LONG time ago, over 12 year, I was going to have my Aunt make a wedding dress for me. I ended up finding a great deal on one and she was very releived she didn't have to attempt it. But we had already bought all the fabric. I am trying to stash bust so I decide to use it but non shiny side.

 The slickness of the fabric was a little more difficult, and the fact that I couldn't iron it completely flat and crisp like cotton. I used Simplicity patter 8393.
 The inside seams are still loose. I think I am going to try to stitch those. But I loved the button I chose!

 I know it has some wonks to it but it is my first attempt. The hem is still a little extra wonky and my Mom is helping me fix that.
 Thanks for checking it out and any advice is welcome! Purses are so much easier! Cheesy

39  Mermaid Pocket Letter - 1st Pocket Letter! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: July 09, 2018 06:38:14 AM
 I made this for the Mermay, Unicorn and friends swap. I had never made a Pocket Letter before but now that I have I really hope they have another swap. It was a lot of fun.

 I wanted each mermaid to flow into the next card so I spaced them out first and tried to get the spacing right.

 I used watercolor to try to get the backgrounds to be interesting and flow together. I am not that good at watercolor, as you can see, but I had fun trying. I think I will try to use it again soon. I did the mermaid bodies in Copic marker.
 Here is the back with the goodies inside.

 Thanks for checking them out.

Project Name: First Work Shirt
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=455357.0
Brief Description: I sew a lot but I always use quilters cotton or similar materials and I never sew clothes. I decided I was going to try to learn how to make myself some. I have been saying I was going to do this for the last three years but I am just now getting around to it. I had to ask my Mom to explain some stuff to me (what iron setting does crepe go on? Why is my hem so freakin' wonky? Why did I try to sew a shirt with such slick fabric!? Huh That sort of thing). She helped me with the hem and understanding some of the lingo of the pattern too. Please ignore my messy room and yes, I own a lot of shoes. It's not perfect, or anywhere near it, but it's a start. I plan to keep making them until I can actually wear one to work. I am claiming brain power for figuring out the hem.
Project Picture:

I need to secure the ends of the fabric but I really liked the button I used.
