36  Rag Doll Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by envirocraft on: March 23, 2010 07:54:07 AM
Here's my first attempt at a rag quilt.  I used up my flannel scraps, and hoped it would be baby sized, but I it ended up doll sized. lol  It measures about 23"x21"

The back

The front

Cut blocks and pattern

My favorite fabric used in the quilt!

And my very own (old!) teddy bear all snuggled up!

Thanks for looking! This was one of my first quilts and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I'd definitely make people-sized ones!

This is the craftiest thing that I've accomplished lately!

Oatmeal Current Cookies!!!

(the cookie jar in the back wasn't made by me, but I wish it was! My boyfriend bought it for me for Christmas from a local artist)

They were supposed to be chocolate chips, but I didn't have any, so I used currents and they're FABULOUS!

Here's the recipe
Cream together 1 cup butter and 1.5 cups packed brown sugar until fluffy
Beat in 2 eggs and 1 tsp of vanilla
Add 1.5 cups of flour, 2 tsp baking soda, 0.5 tsp salt and 2 cups rolled oats
Mix well.
Stir in 0.75 cup shredded coconut and 1 cup currents (or chocolate chips, or I"m sure raisins would work too!)
Drop onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

39  VHS case of LOVE (pic monster) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by envirocraft on: February 12, 2010 11:54:22 AM
Not entirely sure if this is the right place for this, but I wasn't sure where to put it.

Last year I made my man a 52 reasons I love you book, so this year I needed to do something different.

I took a VHS case and made it into LOVE.

I modpodged the outside with tissue paper.  On the front I slid in a piece of paper with a velum quote that says "Kisses are the messengers of love" and then stamped lips on it.  I added a few more embellishments with some ribbon, red stick on gems, and a heart that I'm really proud of.

This heart was made from a jazzy jewelry clear heart, then I put diamond glaze on it, sprinkled seed beads on it, and finished it up with another layer of diamond glaze.

The back has glitter sticker letters that say LOVE and then I stamped in brown "all you need is love" and "youre the best!" all over.

On the inside I decorated an ace of hearts card with glitter and acrylic paint, and then added wooden hearts to dangle which came from some old project I ripped apart a while ago.  

The other side contained the pictures/paper crafty part of this project.  I took pictures of me I'd ordered doubles of accidently, and put them on an index card with one of the cute text messages he has sent me and I've saved.  

(tied with ribbon and not)

Book Cover:
The back says "Dear Jill. Adam loves you! From Adam.  P.S. You are incredibly sweet and cute too!"

"If you were ever mauled by bears, I hope they stay away from your face because I think you're cute"

"J Butts, you are sweet like candy. Heart You!"

"Maybe I'll kiss you until you understand how much I heart you."

"I'm your personal penguin"

"I miss you. I want a place to live where you can sit on my couch and smile at me."

"Can I take you out for a six month dinner this weekend? I love you and want to do something together."

"Heart you insane butts more."

"Sure you would! If your homework is relationship electricity!"

"I feel that you love me so much that it warms me up when I am cold."

"Dear Jilly. I love you.  From Adi."

"I heart you this much|                                                   |"

Here's the back of the last one and how it's attached.  I stapled the ribbon to the back piece of paper before I glued it to the case.

Here's everything laid out

The backs:

Thanks for looking. Smiley

40  Another Nintendo DS case!! in Needlework: Completed Projects by envirocraft on: February 11, 2010 09:34:05 AM
Alright, so here's another ds case out of plastic canvas! (my first one can be found here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333429.msg3851228#msg3851228)

Because I was just making this one for fun, it's an etch-a-sketch (if you didn't already figure that out. lol) with the ds logo on it.  I was thinking that if I were to make these for other people, I could always put their name on it!

From another angle:


Inside with my ds:

And the bottom (it's black like a real etch-a-sketch!)

Thanks for looking! C&C appreciated!
