1  Bleeding Heart Coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by sweetpadee on: September 15, 2009 10:40:59 PM
Hi Everyone!

I haven't posted on Craftster in a few years I think... And thought I would share these coasters I recently made. I downloaded this PDF from a blog, but sadly I don't remember where it is and I can't for the life of me find it searching through the massive internet.

I used inkjet iron-on transfer paper, muslin and cotton batting. The quilting was done free form on my machine.

2  Napoleon Skeleton Pillow with Tattoo Flash Everywhere!!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by sweetpadee on: March 10, 2008 08:51:58 PM
Hi Everyone,

This is my first time posting in this particular forum on Craftster, and well, my first time posting something that I have made on Craftster in a while.

So here goes...

I made this pillow this past weekend for my man. He loves skulls and skeletons and the like and well I love Napoleon. I found this picture on Google and immediately fell in love with it because the skeleton's resemblance to Napoleon. What can I say, I'm a complete nerd and Napoleon is like my Johnny Depp of history!

I found an iron-on transfer in my stash and just printed the picture onto it from my HP printer and then ironed it onto some unbleached muslin. I then used some Alexander Henry Tattoo fabric for the border and the back of the pillow. I just sewed it up and found a great bamboo pillow on sale at JoAnn's and here I have a nice pillow!

I plan on making another one, possibly with Edgar Allan Poe. I'm not sure though, I just might make it plain.

I hope you all enjoy!

3  Another Polka Dotty Dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sweetpadee on: July 24, 2007 03:40:14 PM
Hey Everyone,

So I haven't been doing much of sewing... or knitting, or crafting of any sort lately. (I had a very condensed anatomy class on top of work.) But I finally got around to using some polyester knit Polka Dot fabric that I bought from Gorgeous Fabrics.

I made McCall's 5425.

Back View:

It was actually a very easy pattern, a beginner could easily make this in a short period of time.

Enjoy! Questions, comments, concerns? Let me know and have a wonderful day!

4  Yet Another Simplicity BBW 4111 Top... Just for Summer! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sweetpadee on: May 02, 2007 06:44:28 PM
Hi Everyone!

I made another top... Finally got my sewing mojo back!

It's Simplicity 4111. I made everything pretty much the same; well except for the short sleeves, I can't imagine wearing long sleeves in the Southern California summer!

I made it out of a cotton Swiss Dot I found at JoAnn's.

I really liked this pattern. VERY quick and easy to make, which means no stressing for me!

Hope you likey! Thanks!

5  New Grey Top, Just In Time for... Summer? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sweetpadee on: April 12, 2007 03:12:21 PM
Hi All!

Here's my new top. Made from Simplicity 3882, view B. I changed the construction up a bit and came to terms with my fear of sewing knits. It is a bit drab for summer, but I plan on making a yellow pique bow belt to make it a bit more summery.


Hope you like! Comments, criticisms and questions always welcome!

Well I think I will join! I started this quilt 4 years ago and kinda just forgot about it.

It will be my first quilt, but I bought this wonderful book that I can refer to if I have any problems. I think it's called Your First Quilt Book.

It's a pretty basic quilt, just a bunch of squares! If I get this one done I have two other quilt kits and would like to make a grey and yellow quilt.

We'll see... Shocked

Oh yes... and here is a picture of what I drew up 4 years ago and some of my squares pieced together.

Okay well... I finally finished part 1 of my Petro Zillia outfit. The puff/cap sleeve underdress.

Next, the tube dress! And most likely a slip dress to go under also...

It's so much fun to see everyone's creations!

I have made one for my friend for Christmas. We go walking a couple of times a week and our ears always get cold in the wind, I could not have asked for better timing!

Anywho, it's Paton's SWS on size 8 needles. I cast on 80 stitches and continued the pattern normally. The soy with the wool makes for a non-scratchy, very warm head warmer! I just hope her head is a bit smaller than mine (which I think it is) because it barely wraps around my head.



Oh and one more thing, because it's funny... My boyfriend's cat kept picking up the ball of yarn and carrying it around like he was a dog with his favorite ball (or a cat with his favorite rodent). It was quite hilarious and I wish I had had my camera with me at the time!

I finally finished mine! Two and a half months later!

I used Artyarns Supermerino color #215. I made this for my Grandma for Christmas and since she is very petite (4'10") and because I thought I might run out of yarn I only knitted 9 straight sections.

Pink is her favorite color and this wool is SUPER soft, so I think she will love it, it's pretty and warm and not scratchy!

I finally bought my fabric for the Petro Zillia Project! And I decided that I already had two patterns perfect for it!

They are both out of print. New Look 6040 and Butterick 3446.

The polka dot netting will be used to make the puff sleeved dress to go under the tube dress. The tube dress will be made out of a charcoal wool. I will also make a black slip dress to go under the polka dot dress when I am not feeling the tube.

Alright, back to work. I'm cutting out the netting now!
