1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Roller Derby Jam Ref Wrist Bands (link to tutorial) on: May 25, 2013 06:03:06 AM

As president of my league I'm in charge of a lot of things. One thing that slipped my mind again and again was providing team colored bandanas for our jam referees. There always seemed to be a mad scramble to find someone with an extra green bandana. Well no more! I made wrist bands in my team's color as well one for each of the teams that we were going to be playing this season.

After I made our set, someone from a nearby league commissioned a set as well, and then just recently a jam ref from a team we played told one of his girls that they desperately needed a set. They are quick, simple, and cheap! Jam refs love them because you don't have to tie them like a bandana, they're less constricting than those spandex glove covers, super visible to jammers and NSOs, and easy to switch during half-time.

The full tutorial is available on my blog[/size]

The wrist bands in action!

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A Trip to the Apothecary - Paper Pieced Quilt on: October 19, 2011 05:05:45 AM
I meant to post this here and now 2 weeks have gone by and I'm just remembering!! This is my paper pieced potions bottle quilt. I actually made two of them. One of them full sized and the other is a miniature (about crib size, I believe) version. I designed all of the potion bottle blocks and made the quilt tops and Shannon of Rock Creek Quilts did the amazing quilting job on them.

Much more info about these quilts and the patterns are available on my blog post about it. If you click through the images it will take you to my flickr where I have many more photos and pictures of the individual potion bottle blocks. Cheesy

I would LOVE to know what program you use to make the cross stitch pattern I want to make Cinderrella for my 2 year old ( knit that is) and I have no clue how to take a picture and make it into a graph other than printing out a picture of graph paper?

I used Pattern Maker for Cross Stitch by Hobby Ware (they have a free trial on their site), but I know that others like to use PC Stitch.
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Doctor Who Towels on: February 07, 2010 08:56:56 AM
I've had my embroidery machine for about a month, but had no clue craftster had a forum for machine embroidery (that's what I get for sticking to my favorites). Tongue

I just recently got into Doctor Who (finishing season 3 of the newer show today), but it is such a craftable show. I've only done two designs based off of the show, but I have a feeling there will be more to come. The designs came from stencils on the livejournal community crafty_tardis.

After posting my original dalek I ended up having to make a lot more, so it was like I had an army of daleks!

And the TARDIS is special because the white part at the top was done in a glow in the dark thread! I've been looking for an excuse to buy that thread, and this was perfect!

Gah! These are just great! I never thought to look into wingdings for good things to digitize.

Very good work on this!  I think this is amazing.  I found Jen's paper pieced patterns too and I have a Harry Potter quilt planned for my mom as a present.  I haven' started piecing them yet but I hope to have it finished by February (ambitious I know).

Anyway, this rocks.  Who knew a quilt of underwear would be so awesome?

I actually learned how to quilt/paper piece because of her. She was always posting great things on her livejournal and then the hp_paperpiecing community and I finally had to get in on the action. She's the coolest person ever.

I saw this on the home page and said, "Is that underwear quilt?". So of course I had to come to this thread. Well done on finishing such an unique and quirky quilt. Cheesy

Hehe. Yes, yes it is! Thanks for viewing/commenting! Smiley

I'm so wisting this! I'm also sending the link to all my quilty friends! They will totally appriciate it. I may try my hand at a block for a pillow!

Good luck! Paper piecing is so much fun and I know the HP Paper Piecing livejournal community would love to see the results.
