1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / This Is Us themed Swap? on: December 10, 2017 12:08:58 PM
Anyone else going to miss the Pearson Family while they are on their mid-season break from hit tv show This Is Us? Would anyone be interested in a swap to celebrate this amazing show? I was thinking maybe 2 mediums, with sign ups after Christmas and month of crafting time.  I'd be willing to organize.

I am hosting a Pumpkin Everything swap both on Instagram and here on Craftster. I used this mug rug applique pattern for both. This post is for my instagram swap. Here I repeated the mug rug pattern 3 times, and connected with quilted strips. I used hanging corners on the back as my partner suggested a table runner as an interest, and this way she could choose to use it that way.i did not use binding, but just sewed together then turned inside out I adore the blue fabric! My other one is similar, but different.

Thanks for looking!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Spacy Jacket on: August 20, 2017 07:19:33 PM
I just completed this jacket tonight. I wanted something that I didn't have to worry about matching patterns, and wanted something kinda geeky..so I went spacy. I am learning to follow patterns and practicing on clothing. I'm not great yet on sizing, so I went with a bigger size in case I needed wiggle room in sewing, which is why it is kinda bulky. The process was for me to sew a jacket that mostly fits, and looks like a jacket! Now, to get out my dusty serger and learn how to use it so I can make the in-seams pretty. Maybe one day I will learn alterations so I can make it fot better.

Thanks for looking!

Details of swap:

I love pumpkin everything! Do you? It's almost that time of the year! Let's get into the yummy pumpkin spirit with a smallish swap. In this swap, you will craft (1) medium handmade PUMPKIN RELATED item and also send your partner (2) small items. The medium item MUST be handmade, but the smalls can either be handmade or store bought or a mix.
**This is NOT a general Fall swap. This swap is to celebrate the beginning of Pumpkin Everything, so your package must reflect that in pumpkin related things.**

Suggested ideas for the handmade medium item: small mini quilt, tote bag, cup cozy, set of jewelry, wall hanging, painted sign, notecard set of 10 notecards, etc. Something your partner will enjoy, but takes you two or to create.

You can spoil your partner with store bought smalls such as: wax melts or candles, coffees, teas, etc.

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pumpkin Everything Swap? on: August 17, 2017 09:54:01 AM
School is starting, Fall is around the corner, and I am getting ready for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! I was thinking a fun, quick, swap all about anything pumpkin would be a great way to get ready for Fall!

I'm thinking a smallish swap, so maybe a med & 2 smalls, or 2 mediums.

Ideas could be: pumpkin fabric tote bag, pumpkin themed pocket letter, pumpkin mini-hoop, pumpkin themed mini-quilt, hand-made pumpkin max welts or candles, pumpkin flavored food, pumpkin jewelry, see where I'm going?

Who's with me?!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Doctor Who Mashup Wallet on: August 11, 2017 01:36:21 PM
I am participating in a Doctor Who fandom mashup swap on Instagram, and decided to make a wallet to go in the bag I made her. I think I may have already posted the bag, but if not, I will have to do that! Anyway, I tried to follow this pattern I bought, but none of the pieces seemed to make sense when cut, and the directions were annoying, so I used the pictures as a guide and winged it. I am grateful I had sewn a similar concept before a long time ago.  I still need to decide in a latch of some sort, but I am really excited with how it turned out!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first EVER completed sewn adult outfit! on: August 02, 2017 03:43:52 PM
I have been in the mood to sew, and create things with fandom fabric. I wanted to make a long shirt that I can wear with my LuLuRoe leggings.

Over the weekend, I found a few patterns. I accidentally purchased a pants pattern that was too big, and so attempted adjusting with a pair of pants. It ended up making the waist to small, so I had to add in a panel before sewing the sides. It works. I don't love the way they fit, but I can wear them ok. It is HP Gryffindor fabric. I will try to add close up of the HP fabric later.

I am, however, super proud of how the shirt turned out. I had to use a stretchy rayon blend, which I was afraid would mess me up, but it is fantastic! I went with a larger size so it wouldn't sit on all my unwanted curves. /wink/ It took me about 5 hours to make the shirt.

My husband came home from work, saw me wearing it, and commented that I'd been shopping again.

Huge compliment.
