1  Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Round 6 in The Swap Gallery by Sparkledust on: September 19, 2014 11:52:26 AM
all mine  Grin

I've now received the parcel Glamis sent me. It's been beautifully wrapped and has amazing halloween tags on, different coloured ties and tonnes of candy. I just can't wait to get stuck in to our countdown  Grin

WOWZERS - Check out the stash from Glamis, It's just like Xmas but Halloween!

Day 1 - Some Awesome skull coasters. These are going to be great for the party Smiley

Day 2 - A zombie doll.. how cool is this! Massive attention to detail and very creepy looking!

Day 3 - Ignore the mess behind my ironing board but couldn't find an easier way to display in all it's glory. This is going to look perfect along our fireplace mantle. Also got a lollipop!

Day 4 - Black confetti, keyring and a really cool skeleton bracelet.

Day 5 - Cross stitched pumpkin hanger, think this will go on my craft wall all year round

Day 6 - Bumber gift pack including two lots of Halloween fabric, candy mould, headband, skeleton crafting tape (stacks of it!) and candy!

Day 7 - Painted tea light holders, they are so detailed I can't even workout how Glamis did this....was it a template? Ghost bics are yummy!

Day 8 - An awesome Boo sign. Think this is destined for the kitchen, I can swap it with the wooden spoon!

Day 9 - Awesome skele pig, what a brilliant idea!

Day 10 - Creepy picture - It's holographic so looks like sweet vintage children and as you move around the room it also appears as creepy zombie children! The frame is the exact accent colour of my front room so think Glamis is a mindreader!

Day 11 - For hubby, a zombie brain beanie. Hubby works in London so can seen this being worn all through the winter for the cold train journeys! Look out for him London Crafters! It's fleece too so very warm!

Day 12 - Awesome pumpkin box for all our ghooly treats Cheesy

Day 13 - Have a squint, stand back a bit or get a little closer, do you see what this pixel quilt is? Amazing sewing skills, can't wait to dress the place up with this, I think I may be inspired to make some matching ones too!

Thank you so much Glamis for an amazing first time Halloween swap. I really appreciate all the hard work you've put in and can't wait to display all my items so all my friends and family are in awe! You're awesome X

So bobbiemay's praying got it here  Grin  Grin

OMG check it out
I am seriously spoilt. Arial from little mermaid is my fav disney character ever and I now have her in sock monkey glory! The shell bra and green tail are very detailed and detachable and i was even more lucky as she sent me my own Dakota travel mug. Btw the red wool hair is all hand sewn on with the rest of the face detail!

Bobbiemay i would love to know the type of socks you use? And stuffing? It's a large firm but soft creature and i'd love to know for when we get to do round 2? X

So many awesome packages... now you can drool over mine! Check out the mini hoopla i've been sent. Very quirky, totally my sense of humour and the fabric just reminds me of my childhood. But most of all can you believe this is blupaisan's first embroidered item! Lets hope u make many more as i still can't get a french knot to stay in place!

5  Elasticated Maxi Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sparkledust on: March 17, 2014 12:45:43 PM
I've done a bit of reconstructing in the past and want to sew more of my own clothes. I have a serger and rather than get scared off by a pattern, I searched for some easy to do beginner tutorials on-line, I only had 1 metre or so of fabric in my stash so ended up looking at the elasticated maxi skirt tutorial. I browsed a few, dug through my stash and produced the summary skirt below.

Any other recommendations for easy sewing tutorials that could increase my skills are welcome

Thanks you so much, as the only ones I have, they will be thoroughly used

8  Two new skirts from ill fitting dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sparkledust on: April 14, 2013 05:21:42 AM
So I am always really jealous of everyone who has access to thrift stores, you seem to get some amazing bargains! My closest thing is ebay and I bought both of the dresses below including postage for less than 5 each, both new with the tags.

However, they were both ill fitting at the top because I am very pear shape so very little on top and no dresses ever fit, I have to make my own. So i decided to turn them both into skirts, et voila!

The black jersey skirts was easiest, I only had to turn the top hem down as the mid part was already elasticated, the floral one works as high wasted but I had to unpick the whole top part (re do the zip as I accidently pulled original off dammit!) and then re sew the top hem and add a hook and eye. I kept the top parts as thought the floral straps may make a nice handbag strap and I'm sure I can bling something up with those sleeves.

Now just waiting for Spring to arrive although it seems to be brightening up. I didn't use a tutorial in particular, just read through a few but if you do a search you'll find oodles to look at.

My Gallery - Apologies they are a little creased looking or do not lay flat. I'm in a small apartment and we are mid moving so boxed up with little space and I'm having to take pics of them lying on the floor and they just keep sticking awkwardly to carpet and when I move it another bit moves! I am so looking forward to a proper craft room!

Homerof2 - Quilter's choice - Went with solstice star series available here http://www.freshlemonsquilts.com/?p=1608

First one done, was thinking of doing an orange and pink one, and a pink one top tie the three together. They will have plain black backgrounds though as none of this fabric left and then more decorative ribbon parts. Link to tutorial for pattern - http://www.freshlemonsquilts.com/?p=1550

danynn - Bookshelf

Got my camera working, here is my first ever bookshelf. I've actually wanted to do these for a long time ago. I saw once people using the edge strips of fabric down the spines to echo the writing so I've tried this out too. Hope you like it.

Pearliepie - Four patch star, a new one for me, need to cut the threads on the 3rd one!

kbrison - Thistlebloom available from www.mccallsquilting.com/patterns/details.html?idx=8475

This was the most challenging for me as it tested my patience as I usually avoid anything that involves a lot of cutting and/or piecing as I tend too get bored and it becomes an unfinished project. So pleased when I'd finished them though!

10  Re: Sweat Shoppe Ornament Swap Round 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Sparkledust on: November 26, 2012 10:31:36 AM
So I received the last two whilst I was away and they were great surprises to come back to, they also complete my set.

Firstly the arugami snowman by deathbeforedishes, he is one supercool snowman.  Cool

And I also private swapped with gala_apples so a nice stash of wooden ornaments, I think these will look fab on the tree, it will be a nice contrast to have something wooden and more traditional.

Thanks everyone for such an exciting swap. And considering when we started, its almost xmas, it was a great countdown towards the festive season  Smiley
