1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilt top done, almost ready to put together. on: November 14, 2005 04:07:58 PM
DH is a tattoo artist who likes "odd" looking skulls.  The skull is his design.  I wanted to make it look more natural, in shape at least, but it is what he wanted.


The close up is the fabric in the middle. I haven't quilted it yet, I'm trying to decide what to do with it.  I don't know if I should do another border around the edge in a darker material, to kind of make the eyes less obtrusive, and I'm considering buying a bunch of skull iron on patches to place around the edges/border.  The eyes were qppliqued on, the rest was strip pieced. 

Plus, I'm not sure what color thread to use when quilting, red would show up jarringly on the white skulls, white would look awful on the red... 
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby blanket/bag fleece and flannel on: November 04, 2005 05:26:50 AM

I couldn't get the binding I had purchased to work, so I just sewed the top to some fleece and made a little bunting bag for DS .
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Over door organizer on: October 16, 2005 04:24:57 AM
Over the door organizer
I made a over-the-door-organizer thingie. It works fantastic. I've bought a few, only to find out that the metal clips you hang them with are to thick to allow the door to shut, so I tried out something new. Basically take a long sheet of fabric @ door sized, hem and sew on pockets. Sew a large pocket (this will hang on the other side of the door) and use this as a counterbalance. I used some rice bags to counter-weigh the organizer. As it is only fabric going over the top of the door, most doors should close easily.
4  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / crystal-lite makes great pink dye on: October 07, 2005 04:58:03 PM
I wasn't sure where to put this.  I ran a search but all the kool-aid type threads were pretty old.  I didn't like some white jean material I was using for tote bags so I tried dying them blue with kool-aid.  When it didn't work, I tried tang, then crystal lite.  It makes the prettiest shade of pink and stayed pretty well through one wash.

Hope this helps someone!
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / What else to do with the "fridge mate" 12-pack soda boxes? on: September 23, 2005 03:08:36 PM
We dring a lot of soda at my house and I am running out of ideas for using the boxes!  Any suggestions?
