1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Star and Chevron Quilts on: October 16, 2014 06:39:17 PM
Two new quilts I finished!

I've made a few quilts before these but I still consider myself new to quilting. The other quilts I have made I'm pretty sure have all been patterns that use all square pieces. These are the first ones I've tried that used triangle pieces. I thought it would be a lot harder to match but it actually went pretty well. It was no harder than squares just have to make sure to pay attention to your seams. I had a pick one or two apart and re-do them to get them to line up better  Wink

I think the star one is my favorite because its just so bright and colorful. The black and white chevron was fun and I definitely like the contrast between the red backing. Comments welcome Smiley

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pixel Quilt: Invader Zim "GIR" on: January 08, 2012 12:03:00 PM
Initially, this was my first attempt at making a quilt. As crazy as it sounds, I really wanted to do a pixel quilt because I knew it would be challenging for me as beginner quilter. Well now that I'm finished with it, it turned out to be like my 7th or 8th quilt. I finished most of it then got frustrated quilting it and shoved it in my closet for well over a year. During that time I made like 7 new quilts and tried to forget this one. But a few months ago, I finally dug it out and finished it!!

Dimensions measure about 40" wide x 54" long. Each square is a little bit bigger than a USD quarter if you're trying to think about the size.

Total pixel squares used: 1,344

If you don't know who this is, it is Gir from the cartoon, Invader Zim. He's Zim's crazy and funny little sidekick basically.

Any comments or criticism is welcome!

Natural and artificial lighting (excuse the wrinkles, that is not the way it was sewn but this was fresh out of the washing machine and it wasn't ironed or anything. I swear I didn't sew it all puckery like it looks! Lol)

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Rhinestone bracelet on: April 25, 2011 12:33:31 PM
I was kind of bored this weekend so I decided to go to the craft store and buy some stuff to play around with and maybe make some new bracelets.  This is what I came up with. I think its pretty cute Smiley  Its made with some blue leather suede lace, rhinestone chain, and some craft floss.  Then I added the closure because the suede doesnt tie together very well.  C&C always welcome[/size]

inspiration came from: http://makebraceletsblog.com/2011/04/01/straight-from-las-vegas/ and http://www.ettika.com/Bracelets/Crystal/?sub=&view=111&pall=&maincat=

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk resin ring on: March 31, 2011 02:47:50 PM
I made this resin piece a few years ago actually but never really knew what to do with it but I just decided to put a ring back on it and wear it as a ring!

Hope you like it Smiley

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Unorthodox quilting experiment: polyester flag! on: November 20, 2010 04:04:59 PM
Finally got around to taking pictures of my newest quilt!! Its nice and cozy Smiley

I wanted to make a Real Madrid quilt of some kind but I didnt really want to stencil or anything so I thought why not just buy a RM polyester flag off of ebay and use that! I know polyester isn't ideal material for quilting but I though I'd might as well try, thats how you learn!

So I bought one, super cheap, like $5, off ebay.  While I waited for it to get here, I found some scraps in my fabric stash and pieced the back/top(which ever way you see it) of the quilt. I think it came out really cute! Once it got here I just put the flag over it and pinned it like crazy(lots of blood was lost on this project lol), then started quilting. It was SO hard to quilt polyester!!! This was kind of an experiment and it actually came out a lot better than I expected.
**If anyone wants to try this, I suggest using spray adhesive for the basting since the fabric is very slippery and silky, it would have probably made my experience a lot easier.

I quilted around all the outlines of the crest and around the letters. Idk if you can see the numbers in white, but Im actually not done with those. But those are my absolute favorite footballers so it really cool for me that they play on the same club now Smiley I think Im gonna add a few of my other favorite RM players number too.

Just in time for El Clasico! Tell me what you think!

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mothers Day Gift: Table Runner on: May 08, 2010 08:36:16 PM
Being kinda tight on cash lately, I knew I couldn't afford to buy my mom a present this year, so I decided to make her a table runner/hot pad. I tried to coordinate the colors with the placemats she has but I didn't have many fabric colors/patterns that matched. So I did my best Smiley I just kind of winged it when it came to the pattern and everything. Just made changes as I went.

The colors are a deep grape purple and a black flower pattern with a grey backing and a white binding.
(the stitching isnt that white, I used a white charchol pencil to draw my sewing lines and haven't washed it yet)
C&C welcome Smiley

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / New food project: stuff in bowls on: April 02, 2010 12:13:55 PM
I've recently gotten more into polymer clay and decided to try making some food dishes in bowls Smiley (and a few other little foods not in bowls!)

Tell me what you think!

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Soda tab mini clutch on: February 16, 2010 09:13:28 PM
just something I was experimenting with.

its made entirely out of soda tabs that have been crocheted together with blue yarn and closes with a button.

I think I'm gonna make a few more, but trying different ways to close it or just different design ideas until I find something I like. C&C always welcome


9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Magazine Clutch/Wallet (image obese!) on: September 28, 2009 01:13:27 PM
Well my mom was going to recycle all these old magazines and I saw them and thought I could make something out of them. So I found a tutorial online about making magazine pages and magazine collages into a cute new clutch. They're so easy to make so you kind of get addicted. Lol

Two of my friends LOVE Adam Lambert so those are for them.
The designer collage is for another friend who is really into fashion.
And the Jonas Brother one is for a friend who loves JB.

The white Chanel one, the Megan Fox one, and the other magazine collage one are mine I guess Lol

They all close with velcro that I've sewn on them

C&C Welcome!

(dont mind my finger in the picture lol)

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First attempt at chainmaille, pink and black bracelet on: July 06, 2009 10:53:55 AM
I just got some new colored wire recently and I have been seeing alot of chainmaille around recently so I though I would give it a try. I made all the rings myself and found a pretty simple pattern online and went to work. When I first made it, it was only one layer but it was kinda big and open...i didnt like it, so i doubled all the rings and I think it looks a lot better now Smiley

C&C welcome
