1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Walking Dead Felt Coasters on: June 11, 2014 07:26:33 PM
I made a set of these for a swap and had a friend fall in love with them, so I ended up making a second set. Each one is machine embroidered on white felt, then stitched to the black felt. They are slightly over 4 inches square each.

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / David Tennant/10th Doctor quilt (wip) on: March 10, 2014 07:09:15 PM
So... I saw a David Tennant pixel quilt online (and am only slightly obsessed with Doctor Who - the 10th Doctor in particular) and thought that I just had to have one. I've never made a quilt before, but have always wanted one. I figured it couldn't be too hard to do since it's all the same size squares. 4800 one inch squares later and my first quilt top was done. I still have to get the batting and backing, and then quilt it together, so it's not really done but I just couldn't help showng it off a little bit Smiley

I haven't measured it yet, but it should be 80x60 inches. But I have learned that I cannot sew a straight line for anything Smiley
My four year old is just off to the side to give you some reference of size.

The further away you are, the better you can tell who it is. I found a picture of him online and charted it in a cross stitch pattern maker. Lowered it down to the lowest number of colors that still allowed you to tell who it was and then went fabric shopping. There are 9 different colors. There are a couple I would change if I made another one, and it would have looked a lot better the more colors added, but this was a budget quilt.

And here is a link to the quilt that inspired me-
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / One Direction Ceiling Fan on: January 03, 2014 08:40:39 AM
So my teenage daughter is obsessed with One Direction, and my mother in law just moved and took down her plain beige ceiling fan. She gave it to us so I painted it up for my daughter as one of her Christmas presents. Two blades have the band name, and the other two have the logo. We used Harry and Louis small dolls as the pull chains. Although you can't really see it when it's on, around the globe I copied their autographs. She loves it, so mission accomplished!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Turkey Hat! on: November 09, 2013 01:25:56 PM
I needed something for my 3 year old to wear on Thanksgiving this year, and what's better than a turkey? My husband doesn't like the braids, I think they are adorable (he thinks that they make it too girly). But since I make it, they're on there Smiley

I used the pattern here - http://stitch11.com/gobble-gobble/ except I did an extra row of hdc in yellow around the bottom. I also didn't have any buttons, so I just did the black part of the eyes in yarn too. He likes it and has been running around saying "Gobble, Gobble!" since he put it on Smiley
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Zita the Zombie on: June 05, 2013 02:37:16 PM
I made Zita for the summer nerd games. She's a basic poppet, and her stitches are fabric paint. She's wearing a simple felt dress with a sheer fabric outer dress. My favorite part is her hair, it's super soft. I sewed each strand on by hand, and even though it seemed like too much, I kept adding it Smiley She's my favorite poppet that I've made - so far!

And a tail shot, just because-

Sorry for the horrible photos, camera doesn't have a flash.

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Wooden Stocking Holders on: November 17, 2012 09:43:00 PM
I just had bookshelves built along one entire wall in my living room. I didn't want to stick nails in it like my old one to hand my kids stockings on it. I looked around for a while and found this idea and really liked it.

I'm not a big scrapbooker, but I have some paper that I picked up here and there that worked perfectly. Made one for each child using their first initial. Husband cut the wood for me, so I consider it a joint product Smiley The t is little presents, the e is actually a light blue with white snowflakes, and the j is easy to tell.

Here is where I found the idea: http://www.crapivemade.com/2010/11/2-x-4-stocking-hangers.html
7  COOKING / Dessert / Harry Potter - Fever Fudge on: November 17, 2012 10:43:20 AM
I couldn't believe how yummy the HPH Swap gallery looked with all the Fever Fudge that TroubleT made her partners. So I just had to whip up a batch myself, since she was so kind to post where she got the recipe. Let me tell you, it's yummmmmmy. I didn't make the red part too hot since I have kids, and they gobbled it right up. I did make the blue vanilla flavored, but next time I think I'll make it with a mint flavor to enhance the coolness factor.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / The Walking Dead Rick Grimes woodburning on: October 21, 2012 10:34:56 AM
I finished my swap package and can't mail it out until the post office opens Monday so I went though all my craft supplies and found a wood burner that I've had for well over ten years and never used before. Had some scrap wood on the back porch so I decided to give it a go. I tweaked an image from the comic series and then transferred it to the wood with carbon paper. I only had one slanted tip that kept working it's way loose, so it was a lot harder to do that what I originally thought. I had a hard time getting the ink off the wood though. I got most of it off with alcohol, but then sprayed a bleach spray on the hard parts - which of course lightened the wood. I didn't have any stain so I just wiped it down with a used tea bag. The more I look at it, the more I see that can be fixed, but the more I like it!

I do love me some Rick!
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Spartacus: Gods of the Arena stenciled tee - (reference to male parts) on: February 14, 2011 10:23:54 AM
My husband and I are avid watchers of Starz's series Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. My husband's absolute favorite part of the show is when the gladiator Gannicus is drunkenly singing on the edge of the cliff. He is singing "My cock rages on..." which would not be a very family friendly shirt to make. I used freezer paper to stencil a simply stick rendition of the scene, with somewhat more censored lyrics. I wish it was better, but he loved it and has been wearing it all day, so mission accomplished I guess.

10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My little Deviled Egg on: November 06, 2010 08:25:03 AM
While my little one was too big for the newborn costumes and not big enough for the toddler costumes, we got creative and decided to make him a deviled egg! The onesie, pants, and horns are store bought. I just sewed a yellow circle on the front of his onesie and stuffed it a little to stick out. The tail was just some scrap fabric stitched together then on. The pitchfork was made from some black fabric and some alova I had bought aloooong time ago to make a devil poppet. He got lots of compliments - when they finally figured out what he was!

You can barely see the tail beside him on the floor

He had fun, but he was a tired baby when it was all over!
