1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Kitty Towels for mom {pic bloated with too much holiday cheer} on: December 26, 2009 09:44:01 AM
Hmmm...well. LOL. So I made these tea towels for my mom for Xmas. Had 'em finished in October or something, just oh so lazy when it comes to busting out the camera. Came here today and saw nikschaf had placed her own awesome version up. : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=331679.0  I dig 'em a lot. Too funny.  Embarrassed

Anywho..my towels....I found these towels in a dollar store type place, 100% cotton, no pattern, 2/ $ 1.00....YESs !! Bought a boat load. Wasn't too keen on a couple of colours.....green and a brick colour...was fine with the khaki one. Said to self..eh...I'll bleach the colour out.....I ended up with a load of Band-aid pink towels...no word of a lie all of them were band-aid-friggin-pink! Eeep. So another trip out to get some colour remover ( never use Tintex it doesn't work, use Rit) and Viola I had a load of yellowy(ish) towels. YAY!!

So on with the pics of the almost doomed towels.

                                     Oddly the flash warmed the colors instead of washing them out
                  Patterns were originally from the flickr Hoop love group. I think they're not there now. Might be Vogue patterns.

    hmmm should be lines in the next Daft Punk song

I used a blend of colours on these two:

                             Awww, I love their little faces.  Smiley

It was the first time I used the Clover transfer pencil, and I must say I was very impressed. Easy to use, didn't break every third stroke, and it seems to have washed out fairly well too.  Cheesy
I wish I could say which stitches I used on these, but I honestly don't remember. Embarrassed

Thanks for looking! Questions, comments....etc. are wlecomed.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / I "needed" a christmas wreath...so I made one. on: December 19, 2009 06:46:53 AM
So after finishing putting up all the Xmas decorations, I felt I needed a wreath for the front door..hmmmm. What to do? I no longer have a handy dandy neighbourhood thrift store anymore. So I made one.  Cheesy   I sat down and drew out some christmassy things and cut out some felt, a bit of hot glue (only burnt myself once w00t) and viola!

     It's about 9"  across I needed it smallish as the window in my door slides open and it would look weird if it went over the split
All it is inside is a piece of cardboard I shored up with some packing tape and then I wrapped it with some lime green wool blend fabric that I just ripped so it would be frayed. I glued a ribbon up top and it hangs up with the aid of a magnetic clip. Embroidered some of the holly leaves. Had the thought of embroidering all of them, and said no, that would be  insane . Gave Santa and snowmen french knot eyes (I had no black seed beads)  My oldest helped cutting out some things some gluing yay ! So all in all it took about 2-3 hours Smiley I am pleased with it.


Thanks for looking Smiley
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Robby Robit Robot....bleep bloop..bbrrriiipp. on: December 19, 2009 06:13:13 AM
Made this guy for my girls' step-brother (I'm guessing that would be the correct term in this case lol) who is five. I had the picture of this guy on my comp forever. Something I had found going along in my travels on the interwebs. Thanks Smiley  to whoever I got this from.

Run peoples....
                                    Bleep bloop

Bow down to his noodley armed glory!

It was kinda hard to get all of him in the picture. He's 13" tall with 21" long arms..lol.
Body and feet made with felted wool, arms flannel and plain old craft felt everywhere else. All hand-stitched with love (and some swear words) except for the arms and legs I ran through the sewing machine for extra strength. I at some point lost my mind and decided to whip stitch  around all the seams with rayon floss.Yes. I think it looks cool though...kinda like he was soldered at the edges.
Thanks for looking Smiley

7  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Online Scan on: November 15, 2009 12:42:05 PM
I actually came across this another site awhile ago. Scared the bejeezus out of me.
Never here. Though I am a die hard Firefox user. (IE runs as fast as cold molasses uphill).

Though I had to get rid of one of my ad blocking programs 'coz I couldn't get on the site at all. This was maybe 2-3 weeks ago....Though it could be possibly been caused be an ever so wonderful update from windows (stoopid Vista).
I have Ad blocker plus, but am seeing ads sometimes, not consistently on this site. Today I'm not seeing them ...yesterday I was.

And comps were made to make our lives easier...pfft.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dolls from "9" - where'd you get those peepers? on: September 23, 2009 04:23:21 AM
I saw 9 this past weekend, and loved it! I was too thinking how cool it would be to make dolls. But, I have an allergy to burlap. Sad
Anywho....I'm thinking using the posts from eyelet sets or small grommets would be the way to go for their eyes. That's my 2 cents anyways. Smiley

these are soooo awesome!
I can see the look on my Bf's face when I tell him I want to make them.  Tongue
Any kind of bacon? I'm thinking maple bacon and perhaps some pecans in the mix. Hmmmmm. Yeah.
