1  Wasabi Peas Make Good Trees! in Winter Holidays by ingysoup on: December 18, 2011 01:11:09 PM
So, I was sitting at home last night by my lonesome, munching on some wasabi peas when lightening struck!  Yes!  Poor old neglected glue gun plus wasabi peas = XMas trees, plus like 5 minutes and viola!!!

I think these would make great name card holders, ornaments, whateves.....  Think wreaths as well!

2  Floursack kitchen towels Made Fun!!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ingysoup on: November 09, 2009 02:40:37 PM
I made these last year for my stepmother, who really needs nothing and wants nothing for XMas.  But, I hate going empty handed, so came up with these.  Super easy to do with fabric paint and pens.  I just made them up myself, no templates or anything.

3  Miss Thang aka DillieDawg in a gown in Halloween Costumes by ingysoup on: October 31, 2009 01:43:53 PM
My sister-in-law is actually seamstress and used some of her left over fabric as packing "stuffing" for some Christmas presents she sent us a few years ago.  I'm trying to use up my fabric stash, so our poor dog was my target this Halloween.  I think this fabric is silk taffeta.  I originally just made the hat for her, but then of course she had to have a matching backless gown.  You know "they" say that a gal should accent her best feature , ie legs, shoulders etc.  I thought it should be backless so that the "menz" would want to pet her  *heh*  These pictures aren't great because she HATES it, so I'll try and take some better pictures later on tonight.  Thanks for looking!

The hat is 20's inspired and made from an old bra cup -lol.  I just glued some fabric on and stapeled some elastic, sewed some peacock feathers on it.  I wish she loved it as much as I do!!!  Happy Halloween everyone!

4  Giant Brain Hat of Doom in Halloween Costumes by ingysoup on: October 25, 2009 02:28:25 PM

A leftover from a project last year or the year before.  Much cooler in person.  Made from spray insulation. (very cool stuff to work with!)  That's my son "diggin'" it.

5  Vinyl Valnetines cuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ingysoup on: February 15, 2008 06:33:02 PM
So I made my V-Day pressies this year.  This was for my son, who is an avid fisherman.  I got the bad fish bones image from the net, made a cardboard stencil -from just finished Cherrios box lol, painted the stencil on the strap and randomly stiched.  Gee, can you guess I embroidery things for my sewing machine?  Anyway, the vinyl cuff wasn't hard to figure out, and then YAY I got to use one of my heavy duty snaps!

  I put a heart on the inside!

  Awww, he's soooo cute!

Comments are welcome!

6  Valentine's Reconned Undies in Valentine's Day by ingysoup on: February 15, 2008 05:38:02 AM
  Had this old t-shirt that I'd forgotten I'd bought, and just happened to find yesterday in the dark recesses of my closet.  Perfect, I thought since my SO's name begins with an S.  I must be cheap, because I just used a pair of his "nicest" tighty whities -lol- and a wee bit of pink scrap --viola!

ScrappySue, thanks so much for posting your great cover!  I love it, and it inspired me to make one too.  Funny about the vinyl - I bought a scrap bit at JoAnne's thinking I'd make a little something having never had worked with vinyl before.  My son was going paintballing, so I sewed up a quick vest and lined it with some batting.  Anyhow, I realized it wasn't too hard to work with and when I saw your post, I knew what I wanted to do!

The image on the front is a designed "I" that I had doodled many years ago, but much more simplistic. Yeah, my name is Ingrid. The doodle on paper is much better, but this is ok.  I never had a cover for my machine, so I kinda winged it as far as pattern.  I did make a hole for the handle, which I do like.  I also tried to do some fancy seams -I still need to work on that though lol.

Anyhow, thanks for the inspiration!

8  Floribean Fabulousness For the fuller figure! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by ingysoup on: February 10, 2008 06:36:20 PM
So I love going to garage sales and last weekend I got over 11 yards of this upholstery fabric for ---- get ready for it -- $5.00!  I plan on making a few weekender bags with it, but just had to make a skirt first.  A very basic cross between an a-line and a pencil with two side slits and a vintage yellow metal zipper, with some bias tape accents.

Yes, it's very, very, Floribean, but hey, I live in FL so what the heck!

The fabric was made in the Netherlands and reminds me of Mekko (sp?) and I'm really happy with it!  It also gave me some much needed practice on how to finish seams. 

Would love some comments!!!!

10  cows on my bike ride in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ingysoup on: January 06, 2008 04:36:14 PM
I try to ride my bike everyday.  Luckily, there's a long section of the ride where I get to see some cows - not that I moo at them or anything. lol  So I painted this as a gift for my bf for XMas.

Thanks for looking!
