1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / human torso appetizer on: October 14, 2012 10:55:59 AM

So for Halloween I decided to create a human torso appetizer! The base, ribs, and organ "bowls" are made from puff pastry, as well as the intestines. Smiley

A rundown of what the organs are made of:
- the heart is a roasted beet
- the lungs are made of white bean dip and hummus
- the liver is filled with pate
- the colon is made out of salami
- the stomach is a cheeseball
- the gallbladder is a pickle
- the intestines are puff pastry filled with sloppy joe mix

I baked some puff pastry for the base, and covered it in smoked salmon for the "skin" - I attached the liver and lung bowls to the base with cream cheese and then filled them Smiley

It took a little while to assemble, but it was totally worth it! If you've got a large oven with lots of baking sheets you should be able to bake all the pieces at once, which will save so much time!

I've got a full step-by-step tutorial of it with lots more photos and details on instructables if anyone is interested. Cheesy

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Basket made from plastic bags + link to tutorial! on: August 13, 2011 11:04:24 AM

This week I made this and I'm so proud of it.

It's just plastic bags, cut into wide strips, braided, and then sewn into a basket. It took a lot of trial and error, but now I want to make tons of them. I'm thinking they'd make great covers for flower pots or a nice wastebasket... even a place to throw all the stuff in my pockets once I come home at night. Cheesy

I posted a full tutorial on instructables, and you can log in with facebook over there to view it if you don't have an account.

Yay! Thanks everyone! You guys are so nice. Cheesy
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Latest 9 patch quilt + link to how to sew a quilt tutorial! on: April 05, 2011 08:41:25 AM

I am really excited about this one. I just love 9 patch quilts... they always turn out so lovely. Cheesy

This one took less that a month to complete and the fabrics are a combination of my grandmother's and mine - she was an amazing quilter so I suppose I'm trying to keep it going!

I documented the entire quilting process to try to recruit people who might be intimidated it, so if you know anyone looking for a good tutorial, I hope you will deem mine worthy! It's posted at instructables - I would repost it here, but it's basically a novel. I think it'd take another week of work to get it up. Tongue

(The good new is that you can sign in over at instructables with your facebook account if you have one - that way you can see all the photos!)

So please take a look if you have the time - I would certainly appreciate it!

I actually don't use anything but a denim needle and a long stitch length. Tongue

I tried putting a bit of masking tape on the bottom of the presser foot this time, but I feel like it almost made it worse!

I love the clean lines and I can just tell that after being in my back pocket for a day it would form to my butt like a glove  Grin Cheesy


Haha, it's true, it does that! It's much more comfortable to sit on than bulkier cloth wallets with velcro and snaps and all that. Smiley

So I sewed up a prototype a week or so ago, and just had to do another one with a tutorial. I love it. Cheesy

It has enough room for 6 cards and some cash.

The complete tutorial with tons of pics can be found here in step-by-step format:

Ah drat, looks like they aren't. I guess I'll have to see what I can do to get them hosted somewhere else so they'll work again. I'm not really sure why they went down, they were working just fine yesterday.

Photobucket is very strict with how many people look at your pictures.  Tongue

Maybe try uploading them to the craftster photo hosting? I really want to see!  Cheesy

Thanks so much to everyone for posting pictures! They're so cute! Makes me feel all special.  Kiss

I'm wanting to make more hats now. I like all the variations I've seen. I especially like all the pipe cleaner whiskers.  Cheesy
