1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Lanyard Re-con--->Martingale Collar on: May 11, 2010 01:38:40 PM
So hubby went to the Louisville Truck show a few years ago and brought home like 15 Cummins lanyards. After giving some to family and friends and using them ourselves we were down to one. Hubby was coveting it for a super special project, he just didn't know what.  Roll Eyes He approached me the other day and asked me to make a collar for the Ebbs. So after he carefully removed all the hardware I was left with a piece about 2' long. Perfect size for a dog collar except...half the print was on the top and half was on the bottom.  Undecided I brain stormed and after a few minutes it hit me that I could make a martingale collar. Once the lanyard was cut down to size I could make the pieces match. Smiley

2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Pleasure Horse Stained Glass on: May 01, 2010 02:07:07 PM
This is a project I completed last spring. I decided it was the last semester of my senior year in college and I was going to take a fun class! Pictures of my progression...

Final sketch, ready to cut the pattern out:

Cut and foiled, ready to solder:

Finished soldering:

Framed and ready to hang!

I really had a ton of fun in class and wish I had the resources to continue making stained glass art at home!

*ETA* This was my first glass project ever!  Grin
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / New Crate Cover & Matching Pillow Cover on: April 22, 2010 09:09:37 AM
So the Ebbs shredded her bed last Friday during an SA episode. I didn't really have any material that matched her black crate cover (which also had some ties ripped off) & leopard fleece blanket, so I decided to make a new one! I had the cutest pink paisley quilted fabric that I bought like two years ago to make a purse. The purse didn't look like it was ever going to happen and I had just the right amount (2 yds) to make a crate cover and matching pillow cover I just happened to already have the matching green receiving blanket! It covers both sides and the back with a privacy flap on the front. There also is elastic on the bottom to hold it on and double sided velcro to hold the front bottom piece to the crate.

Cover and pillow, I already had the blanket and fleece mat.

With the pillow in place.

The cat is totally jealous!

A very happy Ebbs.

Close up of the ties, two on each side.

Elastic on the bottom to hold it all in place.

Pillow construction, needs some tweaking yet but it's functional.

I need to rip out part of the zipper and put a piece of fabric where the zipper ends.
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / t-shirt quilt, need ideas... on: March 02, 2010 03:21:50 PM
So my little brother will be graduating HS this spring and I've decided that I'll be making him a t-shirt quilt as his graduation gift from myself and my husband. Problem is he is stingy, lol. He has given me probably 6 shirts so far, my mom is looking through her collection, and I have a few that I'll be adding as well. This still leaves me WAY short of enough shirts to complete a quilt front. I was thinking maybe I would add some panels of Avery Printable Fabric with some of his season pictures, senior night pictures, ect... But I'm still going to be short some 'panels'. Any ideas to fill these up and make them look nice? Most of the t-shirts are red with a few black/gray thrown in. I thought about trying to aplique a football, basketball, and track shoe to fill in the blanks. Any other thoughts?

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / White Super Lock Model No. 208 on: January 15, 2010 03:59:44 PM
I just purchased at auction a very clean White Super Lock serger. I'm curious to what a decent price for a used machine would be? This one is pretty much brand new bought 12/1/88 for a schools Home Ec dept. probably used less than 30 times. It is complete with original manual, accessories, and carry case. Any guesses on the value? It's sort of neat, my cousin was a freshman in her class when she bought it in 1988, she remembers the teacher swooning over this great new inventions and she had to go out and but one for the class.  Cheesy
