1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Wasabi Peas Make Good Trees! 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  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Floursack kitchen towels Made Fun!!! 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  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Miss Thang aka DillieDawg in a gown 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  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Giant Brain Hat of Doom 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  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Divinding a large bust dart on: June 28, 2008 05:04:43 PM
HI!  So, I have altered a pattern ( a FBA) and wound up with a huge side bust dart...like 4" wide.  Yes, the pups are huge. Roll Eyes  I would like to know if anyone knows how to divide this dart - what would the side seam look like?  How far apart to space them etc?  I really hope someone knows how to do this and is willing to share.  I've taken out many books from the library, and even though the one I like the most has helped me immensely, there is really no mention of this in it.  I just think this large of a dart, even if I cut it off, will distort the grainline too much in the fabric.

Thanks for any and all help!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Vinyl Valnetines cuff 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!
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine's Reconned Undies 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!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Floribean Fabulousness For the fuller figure! 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!!!!

My son's science fair project...lol...but seriously, it's a work of art, and I wish I had an action shot!
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / cows on my bike ride 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!
