1  Lookee! Re: Choc Unan Rd 3 Gallery of Chocolatey Goodness! in The Swap Gallery by tegatana on: October 11, 2008 02:25:25 PM
I just got my package from the lovely and talented whoopdedoo_5!

It included:
- a cute polar fleece cupcake scarf
- a "baked goods" pouch
- whipped chocolate soap that smells good enough to eat
- Ferrero Rocher
- Ghirardelli dark chocolate caramels

*drool* Mmm...delicious...thanks so much, Adria! 
It was quite the struggle to get my husband to keep his paws off the chocolate while I was trying to take a good quality photo of it all..

What a wonderful first swap --- can't wait to send out my end this week.

The main body is hand-sewn and the "filling" is appliqued using needle felting.

3  What I "came up" with: The Naughtiest Cozy of Them All in CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES by tegatana on: September 04, 2008 04:24:27 PM
For those who've crafted before us, we salute you:

Note: for the sake of modesty and our own sensibilities, that which is to be kept cozy by this item is not seen modeling said item.

Inspired by:
-the infamous "Peter Heater" and "Willy Warmer" of ye olde alt.knitting fame
- my husband, who asked me to tell you all that the cozy itself is actually much longer than it looks in the picture   Grin

With hope that you'll vote for me and not ban me from the forums for this.  Cry

4  Quick and easy agenda/book cover! in Completed Projects by tegatana on: September 03, 2008 08:57:52 PM
So, today was the first day of classes and the student's union at the university where I work gives out hundreds of these free agendas to students (I'm taking a couple of courses this year for personal interest and figured I'd grab one to help keep track of not only school stuff but work stuff as well).  Thing is, since they're free, everyone else has one and because they look exactly the same I wanted to make mine look different since over a thousand other people will be carrying them around (and losing them, no doubt).  

So I quickly whipped up this agenda/book cover with some cute Japanese hedgehog fabric I ordered recently from etsy:

As usual, I winged it (no pattern) --- it was so easy, I really should make a tutorial (though I'm sure it's been done a ton of times before on here)...

5  Reusable Lunch Bag from Robert Kaufmann Cupcake Fabric in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tegatana on: September 02, 2008 08:44:06 PM
Just finished yesterday, reusable lunch bags (still trying to decide if I want to make these for the gals at work or if I want to give some to my mom and/or aunts and one of my sisters-in-law who actually isn't a stay-at-home mom --- yeah, we're few and far between).  Couldn't resist the cupcake fabric!

6  Reapholstered Chair in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tegatana on: September 02, 2008 08:39:56 PM
I finally re-upholstered this chair that I got many years ago at an antique warehouse --- when I first got it, it had a fuzzy jersey cow-print on it and I eventually covered it with this mustard/gold brocade.  But I knew it needed a facelift as soon as I saw this Echino damask fabric by Etsuko Furuya:

I love how from a distance it looks like your run-of-the-mill damask print but if you look closely, there are a lot of different animals and insects worked into the pattern.

7  First Reusable Menstrual Pad: Completed! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by tegatana on: September 02, 2008 08:38:28 PM
Made using this tutorial:  http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/PADS.html

I did some breaking in of my new sewing machine and got a head start on Christmas gifts.  I'd been giving my crafting some thought and decided I wanted to go as environmentally-friendly as I possibly can --- as fun and interesting it's been playing around with say, polymer clay sculpting and the like, I realized that I don't want to add to our ever-growing landfills and would rather from now on stick to as much biodegradable and/or recycled materials as possible.  Hence the big kick towards working with fibre and textiles.

So I'm going to be making different patterned ones of these and giving them away in sets for some of the women on my gift list this year:

I felt the cherries where quite a propos.  Same with the cupcake fabric (below) and sushi fabric I picked up.  Unfortunately, though, I'm not having much luck finding fabric with beavers on it so far.  Anyhoo.

After having completed this one prototype, however, I've decided to go with a pattern that's not only longer, but a little wider in the "wings" to help prevent leakage (I warned you guys... :-D).  This one has a black flannel bed and is sewn with three extra layers of flannel and a nylon layer at the bottom.  Since then, I've been prepping the newer version with some recycled old terry cloth towel as the absorbent layer.  The only thing is all the tiny little bits of fluff that gets everywhere from cutting the towels up...
