225  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Chinese Fan Mug Rugs (pic heavy) on: January 24, 2011 06:49:56 AM
i was inspired by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=358769.0 by playswithneedles, and thought it would be a perfect gift for a friend's upcoming birthday:

all the fabrics were ones from my stash (trying to use it up slowly but surely...) that went well with her home decor of asian/reds/blacks.  i drafted the pattern on paper and then pieced the fan together:

and then added the center triangle:

i used a black jersey cotton for the batting and backing (to maximize absorbency...)  here are the quilted pieces, ready for binding:

i used 1/2" binding for the edge (tried with 1/4" at first, but it was NOT working, so I ripped it out and switched to 1/2"), and voila the final product:

i made her a set of 4, and hope she likes them!

thanks for looking Smiley

227  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Bust Magazine Hoodie w/ Asymmetrical Zipper on: January 14, 2011 07:08:04 AM
I know this is an old thread, but I just found it and love that hoodie! The link to the pattern still works, but there are no instructions. I can figure out how to do most of it, except I don't know how to cut the front for an asymetrical zipper, and I have never put in an asymmetrical zipper so I don't know if there are any tricks to do it. Can anyone help, or does anyone have the instructions for this pattern? Hope so--I really want to make it!  fluffy

ditto!  would love to see a tutorial or instructions Smiley

229  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 58 ENTRIES / Santa's Beach House on: January 10, 2011 05:00:55 AM
after much deliberation, we decided to try a beach house for Santa Smiley
the front:

the back:

this was my second attempt at a gingerbread recipe, since my first attempt left my pieces crumbling after the first attempt.  we tried the butterscotch in the windows, although it's hard to see since the pictures are a bit dark.
my fiance came up with the idea for bubble-gum siding (the roll-out kind), and we used life cereal for roof tiles.  the back "porch" is pretzel sticks, and the bench and lounge chair (and shark!) are graham crackers contributed by friends of the family.  we used royal icing and brown sugar for the sand/dune, and mini-marshmallows on blue royal icing for the sea/surf.  we had so much fun putting it together, and considering it survived a 60 mile trip in the car between steps, we're now calling it "indestructible" Smiley

here's a slightly brighter shot before the siding went on:

thanks for looking!

great job!  "the burrows" was my first thought for this contest as well - it fell apart due to a bad gingerbread recipe, so we changed tactics for attempt #2, but i'm so glad to see the idea well-done!
