 What a great idea. I didn't think of it at all to use the ATCs I made as a Big Time. Duh! I figured they would just be Throwbacks next season.

Prompt: Big Time
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: May ATCs

Brief Description: I made these for the May ATC swap. I am just listing the ones I made that have been delivered or I don't think the recipient plays the Games. Sorry if I spoil any surprises. Also the black and white ones are backs I started decorating in advance for June's Swap.  Wink

Project Name: Cat Sleep Shorts
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I saw this fabric and had to have it because it was so cute but then had no idea what to do with it. I finally decided on sleep shorts. I don't usually make clothing of any kind so I decided to give it a whirl. I think they turned out cute. I had to alter the pattern since the one I was using was for boxers and had an unnecessary flap in the front. I also had to take in the waist. I have really big hips and just a regular large waist. I would have taken an action shot for the 20 points but honestly, I feel like I should get 40 bonus points because I didn't subject you to that horror. Bahahaha! Just kidding. These are a tad wrinkly because I wore them before I took the pic. Pretty sure more of these are in my future.  Cheesy

34  DotD Couple in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by gozer on: May 30, 2017 09:10:34 AM
 Making dolls is something not normally in my routine. I am pretty much a purse sewer but I decided to try something different for a personal swap I was in recently. I was inspired by her Pinterest. She had some really cute DotD dolls on there. Admittedly, mine are not nearly as cute, but I tried to give her something unique and fun.
 I made up the pattern. It was a simple one. Then I proceeded to paint them with layers and layers of paint to give them an old time feel. There are some dark brown underlayers to give them an interesting look if they do get squeezed and cracked. They are 6" tall.
 Here is the happy couple.

 And the lady.


I included hidden Mickeys on her skirt. At least that is what those are supposed to be. I guess not so hidden. I gave her a half sleeve of skulls on one side.


I accidentally painted her undies over her tights.  Tongue  She dances to the beat of her own drum I guess. Sorry for teh up-skirt shot.


 And here is the dapper dude. I have to admit he was my favorite of the two. I really liked his spider nose.  Cheesy


Thanks for checking them out!

 So this happened.... I'll be going to my parents house to send out my ATC's later today. I am pretty sure it will be back up and receiving mail by Monday at the latest. If they are delivering mail on Monday. Is that a holiday? My hope is to have it back up tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

37  Necklace Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by gozer on: May 19, 2017 07:12:44 AM

 Hey! I was getting ready for work this morning and I was looking over my necklaces and realized most of what I wear I got from my Craftster friends. I also realized I need more!  Grin
 I was hoping to start a swap for necklaces mid-June. Would anyone else be interested? I was hoping we could do this in a multi-partner format where we each get two or three partners and send one necklace to each. That way we get a wide variety. You can do beaded, pendants, whatever your style.
 Let me know and if there is interest I will start working on the questionnaire!  Cool
 Fingers crossed cas really want to do this!

Project Name: Patchwork Bracelet
Project Link: -0-
Brief Description: This was my very first buttonhole! I was so nervous and excited to do it. It wasnt nearly as hard as I expected once I figured it out. I had a random buttonhole foot for my machine that didnt have some sort of stops on it and I couldnt figure that out. Then I remembered my new machine came with a buttonhole foot and fished that one out and it worked! I accidently made it going the wrong way but Im keeping it because it was my first one. This was inspired by writing because it has writing on it and I also HOPE for satisfying endings when I read a book. Not always a happy ending, a satisfying one.

Project Name: Cat-ish Pouch
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Home is where your Mom is. My Mom loves cats and she is my hero! She really is pretty awesome. Not just saying to fill a prompt. I really lucked out. Grin
 This pouch was supposed to look like a cat. I tried to put whiskers on it but that looked dumb so I figured I would go with minimalist. Still not much better. Undecided   It is supposed to be eyeglass cover. It has a magnetic clasp. The pattern also showed pencils in it but those would just fall out. Huh  As far as crafting went, I consider this a fail. But it took me so much effort to complete it (I am going thru some serious lazies right now) that I am keeping this win. Its done. I finally accomplished something. The pattern was for a plain version. I added the tummy, ears and eyes to it.

40  Ghastly Moth Snowdrop Satchel in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: May 10, 2017 01:43:41 PM

 I hope MissingWillow doesn't mind that I snagged her pics, they were better than mine.  Tongue  I made this purse for her in the Common Grounds swap. We both loved this fabric. I had some in my stash, I actually had the gray hounds tooth too. I thought it paired well.
 The inside has a pocket but it's mainly a huge space to put whatever you could dream of. It seemed so huge after I finished it! LOL!

 The rest are my pics and I take full responsibilty for the dirty house. I was crafting.  Cheesy 
 It was only my second time using the vinyl fabric on a purse. There was a lot more on this than the last one. The first time I did the strap it tended to twist. And if it wasn't for the walking foot this would have never happened! Oh my! But it was a lot of fun to learn something new.
 The sides are held together with a pink tie. Same color as the interior.

 And it has cute little purse feet. My first time doing purse feet!! Or sewing with foam for that matter. Wink   This really was an experimental purse for me. I had to get glue for the vinyl and get the little clips to hold it. Very different. I was scared the glue was going to gunk up my machine but seemed to dry well.


 Thanks for checking it out!
