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.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / gir and squidward 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!


4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tina Givens birdie sling 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!
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Geo from Team Umizoomi 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.

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Free motion issuue on: July 13, 2015 08:57:24 PM
I just got my mom's old singer circa 1970s.  Its a great machine and I took it because it is great at freemotion (the one time i checked it out and saw it worked great).

Now I can't get freemotion going.  I have the manual and did everything:

  • took the pressure off the darning thingie at the top
  • moved the feed dogs to down position
  • removed the pressure foot (manual shows there isn't one for embroidry/freemotion)
  • tried to pull the bottom thread through to the top to start and that just won't work.

Any ideas on how a) I can pull the bottom thread through? and b) what else I might be doing wrong? Huh

Thanks!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Team Umizoomi, its time for action! 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.

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mugs rugs 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!
