These are great!  I'm cutting up denim jeans to make seat covers for my jeep and have loads of pockets!  I also got a lot of kids jeans, and have made some small pocketbooks and a quiver for my bow & arrows.  I'll try to post a picture of that soon.  Great job!

That is one amazing quilt. Are your quilting stitches seashell shaped?!

Thank you!  Yes, I had this done on a long arm quilter and it has shells, starfish and coral shapes in it.  It was way to big to try to quilt on my little machine!

Wow, it has been a while since I have posted on here.....I made my daughter a queen size quilt and shams in honor of our love of the beach and just wanted to share it.  I remember seeing something similar years ago on here but this is a little different, it's a pattern called Running Stitch.  I didn't actually buy the pattern just figured it out from the pictures.  When I saw the sea glass fabric (which my daughter loves to collect at the beach) and the footprint fabric, I combined those with the beach fabric I have been collecting over the years and here is the result.

Thanks so much for your reply!  I would be interested to know if they fray as well.  I have only sewed a close zigzag but I can see how that would be difficult on something like this...I really like how this turned out and how you used the picture to cut out your shapes.  I am doing a mountain scene, a friend's view from her house and had her son send me a picture of it.  I'll post mine when I'm done.  Thanks for the inspiration!

This looks really great and I want to try this for a block on a tote I am making...

Can you tell me if you sewed around the edges of applique in the picture?

8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / rapidly shrinking fabric width on: November 03, 2010 01:06:32 PM
Am I now just noticing it or is it just happening?Huh  It used to be that all fabric (not home decor) was usually 44-45 inches wide....now, it can be 42, 43 maybe 44....I have a lot of patterns that were based on the usual width, that now you have to buy extra fabric to make work.  Where is the outcry?  the marching in the streets?  What a racket this is!!!!!  All these companies making things smaller and smaller to get an extra buck?  ok rant over...
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Really BIG freezer-paper stencil of a tree on: February 19, 2010 09:09:11 PM
This is really pretty and I think the "stencil bleed" gives the tree some dimension/texture?  I'd leave it but that's just me Smiley Great work!!
