1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Jellyfish Collage Quilt on: May 16, 2019 09:10:40 PM
My mom was doing a collage class for Laura Heine and I also happened to see this fabric that looked like water. Which then got the idea to make some collaged jellyfish to go onto the fabric. I drew out the jellyfish shapes onto some freezer paper. And I found a ton of orange fabric and put fusible on it and then bam jellyfish bodies. For the tentacles I just used the decorative stitches on my machine to make them. I also made three completely stitched jellyfish to add something to the background. And we had some orange minky for the backing.   

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First Rag Quilt on: October 07, 2017 02:02:04 PM
So I found six started blocks for a rag quilt and have finally gotten around to using them. It turned into this cute baby quilt, but I have no one to gift it to so who knows what I will do with it  Smiley  I happened to have a bunch of baby flannel around and just cut some squares to finish it. It wasn't too long of a project too which was nice.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little bit of Minnesota on: July 13, 2017 08:35:01 AM
So I have just moved to a different state for a year of service with Americorps. I was able to bring my sewing machine with me and decided to make my own version of a kit I had seen at a quilt show before moving. It was these kits for plaid Minnesota shaped plushes and I thought it was really cute but I didn't like the shops fabric combos that I was seeing. So after moving I was going through my fabric bucket trying to think of a project to do. And I found this funky red and green plaid. So I looked online and found an outline of Minnesota and printed that out so I could make my own plush Minnesota. It is a little wonky in some spots but it turned out pretty good so I am pleased with it.

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Fish and Chips on: June 08, 2017 04:08:29 PM
So I saw in the Hoopla A Long's theme this month is celebrate and in the list of other things for the month of June is Aquarium month which means somehow my mind went to a fish swimming in weeds of fries or chips. The reason I went with this for the hoopla a long is also because fish is a special occasion meal. On my dad's side we do a summer fish fry and get to see family that we only see at the fish fry. It's also the dinner I will ask mom to make on my birthday since we don't eat fish that often (dad likes fishing but doesn't like to eat fish).

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wiccan Alter Cloth on: May 23, 2017 09:25:33 AM
I have a friend that is wiccan and she had made herself an alter cloth and then gave it to a friend as a graduation present.
It was also some of her first embroidery so I was a little sad that she didn't keep it for herself, but I understand why she gave it away.
 So I thought "hey I do embroidery and if I get the design from her I can make her one" and I made a cloth for her. I didn't have a dish towel so I used some white fabric, which was a kinda thin so I found some fabric in the stash to make it more of a quilt cloth. I haven't given it to her yet, but I think she will like it.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pokemon Hat on: May 19, 2017 01:50:09 PM
I had picked up a plain black baseball cap yesterday so I could add some pokemonness to it. And I ended up getting it done today! I did the style of one of the hats in pokemon go. It was just some appliques. I didn't do a great job on the applique but that's alright I don't really applique.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bleached T-Shirt on: May 19, 2017 12:27:11 PM
I'm going to a Con next week and I don't have the time or money to do a full on Cosplay so I decided to make some pokemon stuff. I made a Ditto that's in Toys, Dolls, and Playthings and a pokeball bag that's in Purses, Bags, Wallets. I think it turned out decently. I asked my brother what pokemon it was and he got it. If you don't know it's supposed to be a Snorlax. I think it turned out pretty well.

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Doughnut! on: May 19, 2017 12:03:28 PM
So I made my friend a doughnut! It was really fun to make. I basically just went for it and even though it turned out sort of square I'm quite happy with it. It took me two tries to get the frosting right. Only once for the doughnut part, but that's because I did the frosting first.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pokeball Bag on: May 18, 2017 10:44:10 PM
So I am going to a Con in a week and I don't have the time or money to do a full-on cosplay, so I thought I would make up some pokemon things to have. I made a Ditto that has its own post in the toys, dolls, and playthings area on here. But he gets to sneak into this post as well.

This is my first circle bag and I decided that I know how to sew well enough that I don't need a pattern. So I looked up a pattern just to make sure I put it together correctly and winged it from there. I am actually quite happy with how it turned out considering I just went with it.

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cosplay Buddy!! My Ditto on: May 17, 2017 10:28:37 PM
So I am going to a con at the end of the month and I decided to do a simple cosplay. So I chose a pokemon trainer. I want to have a pokemon to carry around with me so I looked up some patterns online and decided on making a Ditto. Because they are cute and super easy to make. I found some unused fleece in purple which was perfect. I used Sulky thread for the face.
