91  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Bleach Pen Pillow on: August 08, 2008 12:25:04 PM
I made this little pillow using a few little embroidery designs and a bleach pen.  Instead of turning the fabric white like I though, the bleach turned the fabric a surprising shade of deep red.  Happy accident I guess Smiley

The pen is surprisingly easy to use, and leaves the fabric soft and touchable when you're done, unlike fabric paints.  You can get all sorts of colors from different fabrics.

Its snuggly!  This is just a pillow cover, it's really easy to make and it's totally removable.

And here I thought the only use the bleach pen would be was to bleach little skulls into my jeans.  Who knew.
92  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / ipod bunny holder on: August 08, 2008 08:32:58 AM
My poor little ipod is already all beaten up and scratched, but I thought I'd try and take at least a few preventative measures, so I made it a little chompy bunny cozy.
Here's little chompy bunny, all on his own.

He's not very chompy right now because he can't hang over the edge of something, like he likes too, so after stitching some more, I taped up his teeth so he could hang out.

Finally, the finished bunny cozy!  I'd never made something like this before, I'm still figuring stuff out, but overall I'm pretty pleased with the result.  It's even got a pocket on the back to carry your headphones!

Here i am with my little bunny cozy, jammin to my 'tunes.  It wasnt an issue that day, but I swear a lot of jean makers decide that girl's don't need pockets on pants, or they're like 1 inch deep, so I end up just carrying my ipod around.  Not anymore!  And of course, this little holder can hold just about anything really, cash, coins, embroidery threads....

93  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Hand Embroidered Coasters on: August 08, 2008 07:55:38 AM
Here's my second real project with hand embroidery.  I embroidered the design first, from the Florid Fauna series.
The satin on the moon took forever, but I like how it came out.

And then turned them into cork backed coasters. 

The cork is nice because it helps with heat and won't scratch anything on your table, and they're sturdy enough to actually feel like coasters.  It's a bit of a struggle to get them under your sewing machine, but i managed.

They make a really nice gift set too, all you need is a little matching bit of ribbon.
