1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Zombie baby blanket on: August 27, 2013 05:47:30 AM
A few months ago, I made a My Little Pony themed baby blanket/quilt for a friend.  When another friend of mine got pregnant she requested a zombie theme, because she loves Walking Dead.  Here's what I made for her.

Thanks for looking
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Embellished ballerina hoop on: June 10, 2013 12:06:40 PM
Wasn't quite needlework, even tho I did stitch it on there.   Roll Eyes  But still.  I found a scrap of this ballerina fabric in my stash, and it was laying on top of some pink tulle, and I thought "Why not?"  I wasn't even sure it'd come out decent, but I like the end product.  I covered up my gathering and stitching by putting beading around the waistbands.  Nothing overly special, just simple, and I think pretty.

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Quilt on: April 15, 2013 02:43:18 PM
This is the first time, I've ever made a quilt.  A close friend of mine is having a little girl, and both of us love already love the MLP:FIM show, so I decided to make her a MLP baby blanket/quilt.  I thought using the cutie marks would be a fairly simple way to go about it, so I made a rough pattern of each cutie mark, and then cut them out of felt, and hand stitched most of them to each block.  I got burned out with a few, and the big star and cloud were machine stitched. I finally finished it a few hours before the baby shower.  As far as the binding and backing, I just used an orange cotton for the back, and cut it slightly bigger than the front.  After I quilted the front to the back, I folded under the extra into a binding of sorts, and pinned and sewed it down. 

Here it is, in its entirety. 

And the individual blocks.

I really liked the way it turned out, and almost didn't want to give it away.  Thanks for looking.

"Six people left in the world and one of them is Bill [email protected]%^#ing Murray."

I decided to use this challenge to put together a hoop my whole family would like.  Whether its Ghostbusters, Zombieland, Groundhogs Day, or any other movie he's in, Bill Murray is the best.  Smiley

5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Princess Bubblegum - What Was Missing episode on: November 01, 2012 03:41:28 PM
My daughter decided she just had to be Princess Bubblegum this year.  Its a little cold where we live though, so we comprimised on her wearing PB's outfit in the episode "What Was Missing", the one with the Door Lord in it, since it had a hoodie.  Here's an image, if you'd like to check the outfit that inspired us.

Here is the final costume.  I made the crown and dress.  I dyed, then painted the hoodie, and I spray painted the rainboots.  The leggins were store bought.

Here's a picture of the dress by itself.

Here's the hoodie.  The color looks dull in this photo, sorry.  Taping off and painting the lines and accents was a bit of a paint.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Spocktopus Hoop on: July 31, 2012 06:33:23 AM
A friend of mine posted a picture on her facebook of a plush Spocktopus last week, and asked me if I could make something like that.  While I probably could have made it, I don't have much experience in plush making.  So I sketched up a Spocktopus of my own, and then went shopping for some floss.  A few days later, my own Spocktopus was finally done.  I'm pretty proud of him, as he's the most detailed hoop I've ever done.  Shading his face was definitely an experience in patience.

I used mostly satin-stitch and a little back-stitch here and there.  And the "suckers" I did in a gold metallic floss, and used French knots for those to give it something different.  I realized gold metallic floss is kinda rough to work with. 

C&C welcome and appreciated.  Smiley
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wuthering Heights hoop on: July 06, 2012 07:09:34 AM
I sent StickerChic87 a hoop, because she's always so sweet.  She had a Wuthering Heights hoop pinned in one of her boards on Pinterest.

See here:

I changed things around some, and learned how to do the stem stitch and french knots.  Smiley  I also used some lace that was my grandmother's

8  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 73 ENTRIES / Derby knee sock mini skirt. on: April 07, 2012 07:29:14 PM
When I played roller derby everyone bought me knee socks of every variety you could think of.  I wore most of them to practice and a few during games.  For the craft challenge I decided to pull them out of the drawer, since I wasn't wearing them anymore and do something with them.  I used the socks that were mostly pink or blue to make a skirt for my 4 year old daughter.  I forgot to take a picture of the socks before I cut them, but I'm pretty sure you can imagine them with feet.  Smiley

Here is the skirt fully assembled.  I alternated the pattern of blue or pink, to keep it flowing.

This isn't a group shot of all the socks I used, since I jumped the gun and started cutting before taking a picture.  But here is one of the socks I ended up not needing, otherwise the skirt would have been way too big on Desi.

This is when I had sewn the two halves together, but hadn't connected them.

Here Desi is wearing the skirt.  I don't know why she makes this face, but I'm going to go with, she really likes the skirt, LOL.

Side view, and again her silly face.

And a back view, yes, someone gave me bunny socks.  Smiley  

I had a lot of fun making this skirt, and my niece now wants a matching skirt, so I guess I'll have to use the rest of the socks to make her one as well.  Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bub from Bubble Bobble hoodie on: February 24, 2012 08:53:35 AM
My friend asked me to make her a hoodie for her to wear to a video game convention coming up.  She wanted to be Bub, from Bubble Bobble.  It was pretty simple to make since she bought a green hoodie for me to work with.  I still plan on making little mittens to match his hands and some spats to match his feet.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Manly diaper bag. Or really awesome messenger bag. on: January 31, 2012 03:29:44 PM
I got a request from a friend to make her husband a manly diaper bag, that she could still use.  Husband wanted a Chicago Bears bag more than anything.  She didn't want that.  Using this tutorial, here's what I came up with.


Here is the bag closed.




This bag has 9 pockets!!  Took me about 5 hours to make, including the measuring the pieces out.  Wishing now I'd made an actual pattern though, because I really want a bag of this style for myself.  I used canvas on the outside, so I could skip the interfacing steps.  And a NFL cotton on the inside. 

It is probably one of the most detailed bags I've ever made.  I'm pretty proud of it.  Smiley

Smiley  Thanks for looking.
