Thanks, guys! Cheesy

The fabric for the poppy is actually just acetate lining..you know, for lining a skirt? So simple. I love it! :p

Heh, thanks. Tongue It was actually more the luck of the fabric...it has a lot of body, so when I just lay a plate on top of it to cut out, it didn't shift or warp any, and came out basically how it was supposed to. Cheesy

While I am on a posting binge, I am going to stick these up, too. Tongue

Nothing hugely amazing, but it took me aaaages to work out the pattern, and then handstitch them without them falling apart, so I at least get the fun of showing them off, dammit! Tongue
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My hotpads, which actually make better drawer sachets... on: January 10, 2009 05:29:28 AM
So I made these for a swap partner...

They were supposed to be hotpads, where you rest a pot on them to keep from burning the counter, and they give off a yummy scent. Well, they came out so cute and incredibly yummy smelling, my partner is using them in her drawers to scent her room and clothes!

I used a vintage fabric for the middle, a vintage print for the border, and then filled it with two layers of toweling, and then about 1/4 cup of whole spices: broken cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, whole cardamom seeds taken out of their husk, oh, and ground ginger because I had no whole ginger pieces. Pinned the layers together with a bit of embroidery thread, and tada...a scented sachet that perfumes a whole entire room with the most delicious smell!

I made a couple pins lately, for no particular reason. Tongue

I adore this one madly. I had seen one sort of like it on Etsy, and had worked out in my head how it might work, and then I saw this tut over at Blissed Out, via One Pretty Thing, which confirmed what I had been thinking, so I went for it. I can't even begin to say how much I love it, lol. And I don't even wear things like this. :p

This one, I made just because I had the idea stuck in my head, so I just did it. It's the exact same concept as the Japanese hairpin tut in my sigline down below, but on a larger scale, and obviously different fabrics.

Cute?? Grin
29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Madonna and Child embroidered ornament... on: January 10, 2009 05:02:22 AM
I was in the BT4 swap, and got a fairly traditional partner..so I made fairly traditional ornament.

Front and back. Image made by compositing a few images I found, and then drawing it out. Pinned the image to the linen, stitched it, and then used indelible ink to draw the details..one, because I wanted that effect, and two, because I hate how hard it is to get the exact expression I want when working with thread. Can't say this worked all that well, either, but..oh, well. Tongue

Stitched the two sides together, filled it with a circle of cardboard, and a couple circles of fleece, to give it form, and then closed it up and bordered it in a few rows of gold seed beads.

I thought it came out fairly nice. Cheesy
30  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Sewing for the girls, and matchy-matchy American Girls.. on: January 10, 2009 04:33:22 AM
Over Christmas, made a few outfits for little girls.

These three were all made from the same pattern, but in my usual style of never leaving anything alone. The pattern isn't even for a dress, but for a top. I think the number is Ottobre 2/2005 #11. The top two were actually made from vintage sheets..I love them! Cheesy

The bottom dress had a matchy matchy outfit for the little girl's American girl outfit. Since I didn't have a pattern to match it, I drafted it myself, along with the jeans pattern. The jeans came out perfect the first time around; the top was a little off, but I had used every single scrap I had to eke out the matching look, so it had to do. It was okay, anyway.

The second time around, the top pattern worked perfectly. I am actually going to make it into a free download along with the pants one of these days on my blog, as soon as I can get to a working scanner. Mine seems to have an unfixable, at this point, at least, glitch in it so that it's unusable. Do you guys think there would be any interest in that??

Hope you enjoyed the pics! Cheesy
