21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cute Stiff Skeleton Earrings on: August 26, 2008 11:54:23 PM
I made these earrings from a technique I saw in a craft magazine, where they used fabric stiffner and lace.  I decided that I would use skeleton fabric, and i think they came out pretty good.

Thanks for looking Shocked
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / bend the rules on: August 24, 2008 08:51:56 PM
I am in love with this book, bend the rules SEWING, by Amy Karol(the fabric store near my house is closing so I got the book for 50% off, score!).  The cover project is so cute and easy and makes a last minute gift.  I have made a few of these so far and plan to make many more.

This one i made as a last minute gift for a friend to keep her invisaline braces in:

This one i made for a swap, I used red linen fabric and painted the dots on it:

It is really fun to pick out contrasting fabrics and the buton Cheesy

23  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby gift, soft, soft, soft! on: August 24, 2008 08:37:17 PM
I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but since I havn't posted here for a while (swaps, swaps. swaps) I thought I would make an appearance.  I made this little quilt for a baby gift.  I just used 5" squares and quilted with the batting before put the backing on.  I embellished the quilt with a lace doilly from the thrift store. I used a floral print minkee remenant for the back.

and a shot with the pretty Minkee showing

the other part of the gift

Thanks for looking Cheesy

25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Bright fun pillow made on a whim!! on: August 05, 2008 10:27:48 PM
I ordered this fall charm pack from Moda, but I did not know what I was going to make. I started sewing and this is what happened.

I used the flowers in this project for the middle row.
I used some beautiful brown velvet for the backing.

Thanks for looking-Julie
26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cute pin-up girl embroidery on: July 18, 2008 01:35:48 PM
So, my grandma had these tea towels that she embroidered way back when, probably in the 40's or 50's.  I have always planned on replicating them.  I finally did it, I took a photocopy of the tea towel and traced it with a fabric transfer pencil, and went to it.  this is how it came out.  My sister swears that my grandma drew these (there is another style I haven't done yet) and that they are her original artwork, she is passed so I can't ask her.  I haven't ever seen these designs before, if anyone out there has seen this before please let me know, it would be really cool if it was an original.

I love this Wee Wonderfuls "Stichette" and had to make something out of it.  I decided on a grocery tote, and I think it came out cute.  You really can't go wrong with her wonderful embroidery patterns.

The embroideried patch is a pocket perfect for a cell phone:

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Quilted Fish Water Bottle holder on: July 11, 2008 04:27:00 PM
Our business partner had a health scare a few months back and has gone super healthy, which means he is drinking a lot of water.  He was complaining about having to carry his water bottle everywhere, so i offered to make him a water bottle holder.  of course I couldn't make just any old water bottle holder, it had to be special.  He is an avid Fly Fisherman, so that is the theme I chose.  I silk Screened fish on plain black cotton fabric, and to add a little embellishment, I stitched in some fishing hooks in gold thread on the tab closure.  It was not the easiest project ever, but I think it came out good.

The strap is long enough to go over the shoulder

It was my first time free hand quilting (hooks) on my sewing machine

Thanks for looking!
29  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Our Lady of Guadalupe Pot Holder on: July 11, 2008 04:09:37 PM
O.K. so I found this georgeous fabric panel the other day and had to have it.  I plan on making a wall hanging out of it but in the mean time I decided that the squares were the perfect size for a pot holder.  I quilted it with metalic gold thread and I think it came out pretty good. (even though that metalic thread was not to fun to work with, kept breaking)

30  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Tea dyed, silk screened onsies on: July 11, 2008 04:00:00 PM
I have a coworker who had a baby boy, and I wanted to make him a little something.  I asked him what colors he liked and he said the baby looked good in browns.  So I tea dyed some onsies ( they look better in person)  and silk screened/stenciled them, I am happy with them.

His parents LOVE wine

This is a fish screen I had for another project

And this is a dollar store Monkey stencil
