1  I'm laying this project to rest. in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by BattleAxe on: March 27, 2018 09:22:41 PM
I always prefer to do some highly challenging rather than easy. I bought this cross-stitch decades ago when they were the rage. Amazing artist. Beautiful cross-stitch. But hard as hell.

I've resurrected this project a couple of times over the years. I just spent an hour trying to do more. There are so few squares of the same colour that it's discouraging. And I think I'm off the pattern.

So today I think I will lay it to rest. Have that. But it's just too frustrating!

Ever have a project you've had to let go of before completion?

I made this bunting. I was going to make a nice Christmas one for myself but couldn't resist making one with this Grinch fabric. Three more to make. Two will be blue.

5  gir and squidward in Completed Projects by BattleAxe on: March 04, 2017 07:33:46 PM
HI all,

Always thought Gir belonged on a plate. Preferably with waffles. I painted this once night while out.hapoy with the result. Couple of blemishes.

And so started the idea for a wall of our favourite characters. So for my bf, I did a grumpy squidward.

Son is asking for lego batman and Robin.

Not sure what else will come along. Count duckula? Tiny toons? We'll see.

Hope you enjoy!

6  Tina Givens birdie sling in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by BattleAxe on: May 10, 2016 09:01:30 PM
Finally made myself a new bag. Love the birdie sling pattern. I have three more in the works.

I modify a few things (zipper pocket, carabinger hook on paracord which is awesome for finding keys, magnetic snap). And for this one, I've added a vinyl reinforced handle since that is where they wear the most.

I'm chuffed with it. Wouldn't normally carry pink but I so adore Tina Givens fabric. I think she does gorgeous work!

Thanks for checking it out!

7  Geo from Team Umizoomi in Halloween Costumes by BattleAxe on: October 29, 2015 02:52:46 PM
My kid loves Team Umizoomi. I have previously made him a Bot backpack.
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439734.0

He does not get halloween.  He wouldn't be able to come up with a costume idea.  So I asked him if he wanted to be Geo.

I got a basic hoodie pattern and added the Geo style. The pants are just traced from existing pants.  The shapebelt is cut from foam, then Duck tape was used for the orange.  I wanted bigger 3D shapes on the belt but never came up with the right idea.  So its just felt backed with duct tape and taped on.  

The shapesplitter is just flower arrangement foam cut out and put on a skewer.  Coloured with clear glitter glue to give it a luminant effect as the original lights up.

Learned a few thing sewing elastic fabric (its jersey). Overall, quite happy it got done!  And Geo looks pretty happy too.

8  Team Umizoomi, its time for action! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by BattleAxe on: June 25, 2015 02:29:59 PM
My son loves Umizoomi.  Unfortunately, the show was cancelled and all the toys are aftermarket which means they are crazy prices ($43 for a 4 inch $7 toy).

So I decided to make him a Bot backpack for his birthday.  I had to wait three weeks to give it to him which was difficult especially since I wasn't sure he would still like the show by then!

I got a basic backpack pattern online then modified the front.  It was a decent pattern but I would definitely make some changes next time.  I also ran out of piping so the back isn't piped.  That makes it more flimsy.  But when I'm sewing at midnight over a coffee table, my attitude is get it done!  Its good enough for a toddler!



He loved it. Had a huge smile on his face and wouldn't take it off.  The only thing I couldn't find was a two inch disco ball for a zipper pull.  That would have been the best final touch.

Well this gave me something to do on a late night Smiley



So better flow coming in with the recliner by the window as well.  also can see the tv from the table.  blue is the lamps. 

Bedroom... altar in far corner, bookcases at the foot of the bed (who doesn't like to see bookcases from bed?).  laundry in the closet, stool inside the door.

10  Mugs rugs in Quilting: Completed Projects by BattleAxe on: November 23, 2014 09:09:57 PM
Hi all,

I got my craft on recently thinking I could make some much needed $$ for Christmas. 

So I made some mug rugs.  There are two more space girls to come.  Then I'll do some male firefighter pin ups (don't want to be sexist after all...). 

I hate selling things.  I'm one of those who give things away.  I priced them at $15 CDN (this is a private sale, no one here can be involved).  Considering I had to butcher the fabric to get the girls, etc, I thought that was fair.  They are 10x7". I will do plain ones for $10 CDN.  Does that sound fair?

Enjoy!
