11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Big Bang Theory journal cover. ;) on: December 23, 2011 06:36:42 AM
I've recently started learning how to stencil and I'm in love.  Here is one I made for a friend who is a huge Big Bang Theory fan.  I love it so much tho, I barely want to give it to her.  Guess I'll be making one for myself.

Here is the link to make the journal cover, if you are interested.
12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Drew Barrymore journal cover on: December 20, 2011 04:56:47 PM
Just finished an xmas present for a friend who loves Drew Barrymore.  I originally planned to embroider a pillow with this image, but decided to make a journal cover out of it instead.  I used fabric paint and a stencil.  Obviously my technique needs some work, since there are a few mistakes, but not too bad for my first try I think.  Smiley

Oh and I used LeslieHappyHeart's tutorial for the journal cover.  

Here is the journal closed.

And opened up.

Thanks for looking.
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Game of Thrones Hoodie on: November 08, 2011 11:07:00 AM
At some point during this past summer, my friend and I decided it would be pretty awesome to have a Game of Thrones hoodie for the upcoming Autumn/Winter.  We love the books, we love the show, etc.  

We googled it, and kept finding things like this, neither of us really liked the wolf image:

So we started playing around with the idea of having me make them for us.  She decided we definitely needed fur, and I started looking around for really good wolf crest images.  About 1/3 of the way through the hoodie, I came across a post by Lotuspixie on Craftster that was similar to the direction we were taking.  Here is the link to her hoodie (gorgeous, right?):

So I made patterns for the hoodie based on mine and my friends measurements, and came up with his.  The hood is lined with fur and made super big, so that if you're wearing a pony tail, it never touches and smooshes your hair.  The outside is a dark grey sweatshirt fleece, and the inside is lined with a black super soft cuddle fleece.  Smiley  I cut the sleeve ends off of an old hoodie, to finish the sleeve ends.  Oh, and I embroidered a snowflake on the front.  Gotta give "the bastard" some love too, right?



C&C welcome.  Smiley
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tshirt skirt and scarf on: October 22, 2011 09:59:23 AM
A friend of mine gave me a bag full of tshirts to revamp for her.  I made her several tshirt skirts, and then I decided to make a scarf out of the rest.

Sorry about the weird angle, its hard to take a pic of yourself.

I got the inspiration for the scarf off of Pinterest, but here is the original link:  http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2009/10/t-shirt_memory_scarf.html

15  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Renaissance Fair Dress on: October 13, 2011 04:06:16 PM
My mom called me Monday and asked me if I could use Wednesday and Thursday to make her Renaissance Fair dress, she needs its by Friday.  Needless to say I thought she was nuts.  But she came over and helped watch my kids while I worked, so that was a huge help.  Adding both days up, it took me 9 hours to finish it.  I've never sat and sewed for long long straight.  My projects usually get broken up into several days just because I have to take care of my kids and all the distractions that come with them, LOL.  

Anyway, enough rambling.  Here it is.  It was made using the Butterick 3906 pattern.  The bodice was made out of a heavy upholstery fabric, and lined with a simple cotton broadcloth.  The chemise was muslin, and I'm not really sure what the skirt's material was, that she'd purchased.  

16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first sock monkey on: October 13, 2011 05:35:28 AM
A friend of mine's birthday is this Friday.  She loves sock monkeys!  She has several already that people have purchased for her, but I thought it would be nice to try and make her one from scratch.  I followed this tutorial which I'd found on Pinterest:  http://web-goddess.org/writing/tutorial/Image0.html  I love Pinterest for always leading me to neat tutorials and ideas.

Anyway, here is the monkey I made her.  I never realized how much hand stitching went into those little suckers.  Needless to say, that's not one of my strengths, but I think he came out alright.

17  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Rapunzel from Tangled costume on: October 12, 2011 05:40:15 AM
My daughter wanted to be Rapunzel from Tangled for Halloween, and at the store one day, we saw the Simplicity 2065 pattern.  Here's the fruit of my 3 weeks of labor.  Wink  She was super excited.  The only issue I had with the pattern was, its a little low cut for a 3 year old, so she'll be wearing a shirt underneath.  Oh, and I kinda hate working with organdy.  HAHA

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sweet 16 Punky Purse on: September 30, 2011 05:57:36 AM
I made this as my baby sitter's Sweet 16 gift.  She's kinda into the Hot Topic style and I was trying to think of something that would suit her.  I decided on this plaid corduroy I really liked, and wanted to make it pop with a heart pocket using the accent colors in the fabric.  Smiley  This was the best pic I could get, since I was using my phone.  :/  My camera was dead, and my husband didn't know where the charger was. 

19  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Car seat cover on: September 11, 2011 07:20:04 PM
Fleece car seat cover for an upcoming baby shower.  He's going to be a winter baby.  Its being modeled by my friends son.  Smiley

20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Tooth Fairy/Monster pillow on: September 11, 2011 07:45:07 AM
My son seems to always get shafted when it comes to making things for him, as opposed to my daughter.  Girly things come easier to me.  But he's got his first two teeth loose right now, so I decided to hurry up and do something for him.  I saw monster pillow/stuffie swap that was going on, and took my inspiration from there.  I decided I wanted a something a little extra to add to him though, so I gave him "hair".  And my little monster is missing a tooth because I accidentally cut too far, but it works, seeing as its for my son's teeth that fall out.  Maybe the monster lost a tooth also?
