31  Re: Make a Purse & Fill It Swap (Round 6) Gallery in The Swap Gallery by EllaRain on: February 26, 2011 05:57:25 PM
I received the most wonderful package from Rainysunshine789.
Forgive me for all the pics I am about to post. I tried to limit myself but there was just too much awesomeness. Grin
First and foremost the purse . ..

I love the fabric bands, I think they must have been inspired by what was actually my favorite purse on my wist  Cheesy. I can see the inspiration but with the cute fabric and longer shape it is clearly one of a kind.  It is a smaller shoulder bag, like I requested, but the length means that I will still be able to fit all sorts of things inside it. It closes with a zipper, is fully lined and the inside even has a pouch for my phone. The horizontal stripe looks cream in this pic but it is actually a very delicate yellow and white floral print. This fabric also serves as the lining (little picture since I have so many more to post).

Next are these fabulous pouches. Rainysunshine789 printed these fabrics to customize them with two of my favorite themes: Tetris and the Princess Bride. I love the triangle button. The Tetris pouch has hand sanitizer inside.

I also received this large shopping tote. Don't you just love the fabric? Plus it has extra long handles, which are so much better than the ones you can buy. Now I can carry my heavy shopping goods on my shoulder and still have my hands free to open doors and such.

Finally a cute little owl wallet, a key hook, a notebook, two fun pens and a lovely note.

Lastly a pictures of all the goodness together.

Thank-you so much RainySunshine. Everything is so nice, and very well made. I just know I am going to get so much use out of my new purse!

I received!
In my questionnaire I mentioned that I am fond of fluffy, furball animals. Gerbilgal took this to heart and made me the most adorable fluffy hedgehog.

Isn't he darling?  Grin

Plus, bonus he came wrapped in the most beautiful dishcloth.

You cannot see it very well in this picture but in real life it is very sparkly.

So cute  Cheesy
Thank-you Gerbilgal!

33  Snowman Table Runner in Winter Holidays by EllaRain on: December 21, 2010 11:15:01 AM
When I saw this table runner I thought it was so cute that I needed to make one for my mom for Christmas. I did not have a pattern, but I still think it turned out pretty well.

Details of the snowman's face.

The faces were good for practicing my french knots, which I think I am finally getting OK at.

I have had my own brain slug invasion.

The moment I saw your post I knew I would need to make these for my husband and I for Halloween.  I made an extra that is now making its way through the post to my unsuspecting brother . . . he he he.

Thanks for the inspiration and all the detailed pics.

35  Discworld's Death on a Credit Card Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by EllaRain on: October 12, 2010 04:24:48 PM
I made this credit card wallet for the Two Tiny Terry Pratchett Things Swap .
One of my partner's favorite Discworld characters was Death. So I decided to create a cross-stitch pattern that featured him and one of his friends  Wink.

The front is just plain, to show off the fabric, which I thought was really pretty.

The inside features two compartments for credit cards, and it closes with a magnetic clasp.

Thanks to yonorris14 whose tutorial made the whole thing go much smoother than it would had I had to design from scratch.

I received my items from Stitchminx. My tiny items are so nice. I just love them!  Grin
Here is a pic of both items: a keychain with two beautiful Unseen University charms and an awesome mug featuring Discworld!

Here is a close up of the mug. The detail is exquisite. It is so shiny that I had trouble getting a picture without too much glare.

I had specifically requested a keychain, and I could not be more pleased with what Stitchminx created. I kind of love Unseen University and its wizards so the subject material is perfect. Plus the charms themselves are gorgeous.
Here is an action shot of it attached to my keys (I had to put my keys on it immediately.)

I am pretty sure this means that my keys will now be able to open up the gates of Unseen University  Wink

Stitchminx, Thank-You so much for such lovely items. You have made my first swap a great one!

37  Embroidered Turtle T-Shirt in Needlework: Completed Projects by EllaRain on: September 21, 2010 08:41:07 PM
I bought a $2 t-shirt the other day because, well it was two dollars. It fit well and I liked the color, but it was very plain. So I decided I needed to do something to spruce it up a bit.
I decided to try my hand at embroidery.  I have been cross-stitching for some time now and embroidery seemed like the next step. I found a cute little turtle picture from an online coloring page and set to work.
He turned out so cute that now I actually kind of love this shirt! Cheesy
Behold the cuteness:

38  Denim Pinafore (aka: jumper dress) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by EllaRain on: August 04, 2010 05:55:29 PM
I have had this piece of light denim fabric for a while and had been trying to decide on the perfect thing to make with it. I am usually nervous when it comes to making clothing as my tendency to attempt to dive in without a pattern can lead to less than optimal results. However when I saw the "pattern" xxboheme used to create her super cute pinafore (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=99176.0) I knew that that was the project for me. I ended up adding darts to the back (a first for me) to make it fit closer to the body.

39  My First Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by EllaRain on: August 04, 2010 05:39:45 PM
Temperatures are reaching record highs. Children are running through sprinklers. Summer is completely underway. So of course now is the time when I finish my first knitted sweater. I just learned to knit a few months ago and after making a scarf and a few hats I decided I needed to knit a sweater, even if it would be a while before the weather would permit me to wear it. I choose Jenna Adorno's tempting (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTtempting.html). It is 2x2 completely in the round. I modified the neckline because I could not really see myself wearing something off the shoulder. Here is the result.

40  Picnic Basket (pic heavy) in Completed Projects by EllaRain on: July 09, 2010 02:27:49 PM
I put this picnic basket together as a wedding gift for a friend of mine.

I sewed the lining with pockets for cups and plates.
On the right side are napkin-cutlery holders made using the tutorial from this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350855.0.

Here you can see the napkin-cutlery holder in action

Then it rolls up with a pretty ribbon to fit in the basket

The basket also contained a coordinating picnic blanket

I used a vinyl tablecloth for the back of the blanket so that it could stand up to grass and dirt

The process took a little more effort then I had anticipated. But I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
