1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Oh So Pretty Onsie Dress on: April 26, 2012 12:24:11 PM
I found a wonderful tute on Pinterest for these onsie dresses. You can find it here:

I had to tweek the pattern a bit and make something super girlie and fun using my vintage lace stash.

I tea dyed the onsie and created a little ruff with 3 pearl buttons nestled in.

I think every little outfit has to have a matching headband! Same lace as the ruff and a bit of elastic with a linen flower and pearl button.

Now for Hamster to arrive to model it! Cheesy

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / St. Patrick's Flower Table Topper on: March 10, 2012 07:52:32 PM
I have the 12 degree wedge ruler from www.phillipsfiberart.com and used the newest freebie pattern to make this St. Patrick's inspired flower table topper.

I used 2 colors of green Kona cotton and some vintage cream fabric with clovers all over.

It has a new home for now on my dinning room table holding my little leprechaun friend.

Thanks for looking and Happy St. Patrick's Day! Grin
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hamster's Heirloom Quilt on: January 28, 2012 07:17:11 PM
My Grandma embroidered this set of blocks probably around the time I was born! They have been safely tucked away in a drawer for all these years, until she brought them out and issued me a challenge. Make something for my very own baby girl (that we call Hamster) that is due in May. I set to work without a pattern and came up with this!

I used bright fun fabrics as that is what I'm drawn to and it looked so great with the vintage embroidery. My wonderful long arm quilter did this custom for me with lots of swirls.

The quilter echoed each embroidered design and then swirled to fill in the rest of the block and continued it in the sashing.

It is backed with a super soft yellow flannel, perfect for snuggling.

I just know this will get to loved to pieces and I wouldn't have it any other way! Grin
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Vintage Heirloom Dress on: January 14, 2012 08:41:41 PM
I found this lovely tutorial and had to make the dress for my little Hamster that will be born in May! My first actual baby clothes item ever!

You can find the pattern here: http://www.craftinessisnotoptional.com/2011/08/vintage-heirloom-dress-tutorial.html

I used vintage fabric and buttons from my stash! It should fit 3-6 month size. The bodice is fully lined too!

I altered the pattern slightly. Instead of a zipper I did a small snap at the neck with it open below. Also my skirt isn't as full because I was working with vintage fabric that was an odd shaped piece. I added a pleat in the back for shape as well.

I can't wait to meet the little girl that will wear this dress! Grin

My long arm quilter did a swirly pattern in variegated thread and it looks so wonderful!

Thanks for looking!  Grin
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Spicy Spring Table Runner on: December 18, 2011 09:41:01 AM
I posted a Spicy Spiral Table Runner I made for the Hubby's Grandma ( you can see it here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=398994.0 ). I made my Grandma one for Christmas too!

I used spring inspired fabrics in soft tones.

A close up of the fabrics. Soft golds, greens, yellows, and creams.

I quilted it by stitching in the ditch. I love the texture it gives to the piece.

Thanks for looking! Wink
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Yehaw! Spicy Spiral Table Runner! on: December 14, 2011 06:50:57 AM
I took a class at our local art center on this table runner. I haven't finished the one from the class, but I took the time to make a 2nd one as a gift for the Hubby's Grandma. The pattern is called Spicy Spiral Table Runner.

I used all western themed fabrics. The colors go together so nice!

It was my first time stitching in the ditch as well! Turns out it isn't as hard as I thought!

These runners are so much fun I have plans for 1 more as a gift for my Grandma!

Thanks for looking!  Grin
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Little Linen Ornaments on: November 23, 2011 06:08:50 AM
I made these for an ornament exchange. Simple circles of linen with a bit of batting in side to give them some weight. Rick rack hangers and some fun applique and crazy stitching.

"Happy Holidays" Done with the letter stitches on my machine.

"Little Trees"


Thanks for looking! Wink
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Slice and Dice on: October 31, 2011 07:12:05 AM
I took a class from a national teacher this summer and finally got the quilt finished up. It will be a Christmas gift for my MIL!

I used all Kauffman batiks in a range of blues and greens. I really love the watery effect I got from how I put it together.

My lovely long arm quilter scaled down a meander pattern for me so I could get the tight quilting I had dreamed of.

The backing is just a plain light blue that shows off the quilting nicely. I also used several different batiks to make the binding. I haven't done this before and I really like the results.

Thanks for looking!  Grin
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dothraki Jewel on: September 10, 2011 05:03:35 PM
I made this necklace for the OTT Game of Thrones swap as a little extra. I wanted to make something that a Khaleesi would be proud to wear. Natural elements seem common in Dothraki dress so I used some pheasant feathers and a Cornish game hen leg bone.

The bone was bleached and cut to add the bale on the top. I used a ceramic bead to top off the feathers and it is on a 24" length of antiqued brass chain.

Thanks for looking! Wink
