1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Quilt Block Swap (Sign-ups through March 3, Sendouts April 12) on: February 23, 2010 06:05:18 AM
I've come back to this thread a million times over the last 2 days- I keep going back and forth between joining and not joining.

I have one question- Since we would be using our own fabric to make other's squares...I don't mind if I have to buy a certain color should I not have any fabric on hand. My only problem is my local fabric choice is JoAnns and nothing else and I'm wondering how fussy are you guys on fabric?

hehe...wistful?!?! My little girl is 6 now, and my son is 9. No more wee ones for me. Sadly I didn't do any sort of crafting when they were babies. No hand knits for them Sad
3  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Baby Onesies, so cute! on: August 27, 2007 01:24:21 PM
I loved making these onesies. I made them for my not yet born nephew but I couldn't resist making a few girly ones too. I'll just keep them to look at Smiley

But my favorite one is this one. there's a story behind it. My nephews name will be Damien Blaze. So how could I not give him a blaze? I used one strand each of red, yellow and orange.

But wait! It gets better. My brother is a big tattooed dude. Sleeves on his arms, covered legs, back, you get the picture. I thought little Damien would like his own tattoo so I stitched this on one of the arms.

This was my first time stitching on onesies. I was a little concerned with the stitching rubbing on the baby (especially if he has the ultra sensitive skin my son had) so I stitched on white cotton fabric, and then I used lightweight heat and bond and stitched around the edges. Now he only has a little back stitching to worry about.

I might just have to make more Smiley

  Was it easy to sew?

Oh yes...Ridiculously easy. I've bought a few of the new "it" sewing books and most of them were just meh for me. But Bend The Rules Sewing, I seriously love it. Smiley

This is a pattern from the "Bend-The-Rules" book. I used a kitchen towel for the outside, I just loved the texture. I learned one thing though, it is a bear to stitch through. I bent a needle or two, and it's a little sloppy here and there, but I love the end results!

I'm going to try my hand with clothing finally. Specifically some baby onesies for my soon to be nephew.

I know I "could" leave the back as is, but I'd rather not. I was thinking of maybe just attaching a small piece of white flannel fabric. Would it be better to fuse it with interfacing, or maybe just use a decorative stitch and have it frame the design on the front? Of course...now that I typed that out, stitching it would defeat the whole purpose. Hmmm  Huh

What do you think?
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bamboo should come with a warning label on: July 13, 2007 07:18:32 PM
I just got some bamboo from Funky Carolina and can't wait to spin it. It is gorgeous! I've never spun bamboo before...heck, I've only spun BFL and corriedale (only been spinning for a month).

What perfect timing! (I was at the site before I saw this post) Two weeks ago I almost placed an order and then decided to wait. I want to make some onesies for my nephew, but since he's due in Nov. I figured no rush.

And then I found out the shower is August 18 (only because my brother/the father is deploying for a year and he wants to be involved) Anyhow!

So this morning I thought I better order now since I don't have too long. And wouldn't you know it, I go to the site and see Fairies! I *love* fairies. Now I'm so glad that I waited Smiley Of course, now I will have to resist trying out the fairies until baby stuff gets done first Smiley
