1  matching "I heart" t-shirts in Weddings and Bridal Showers by jillypickle on: July 18, 2005 09:17:59 PM
Cheesy, I know, but my good friend got married last summer and I made her and her finace matching t-shirts that say "I heart" with each of their faces stenciled in place.  I gave the shirts to them as shower gifts, and they both wore them to the brunch they threw for their out-of-town guests the day after their wedding.  

The quality of the pics below isn't so hot, but I have to admit that the shirts were a big hit with friends and family (especially the mothers of the bride and groom).  There's nothing like a little kitschy irony to bring out the nerd in all of us!  But be forewarned: seeing as the cheese factor here is virtually off the map, don't expect these gifts to be worn anytime after the honeymoon.   Wink

2  shrinky dink choker in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by jillypickle on: July 18, 2005 08:43:21 PM
This is a stamped shrinky dink pendant hung on a simple string of beads, fastened with a clasp in back.  I was going for minimalist look with this piece...    Cool

3  sock monkey quilt top in Quilting: Completed Projects by jillypickle on: July 18, 2005 08:30:44 PM
This is a top I pieced together for a crib quilt for my friends' new baby.  The theme is sock monkeys (good and unisex!).  I used a variety of fabrics from the same collection.  If you look closely, you'll see that some have polka dots, some have bananas, and some have stripes.  The border has the monkeys' yearbook headshots, and the backing-to-be (the chartreuse fabric) has flying monkeys!  Very busy and colorful--good visual stimuli for a newborn, they say. 

Granted, this isn't a "finished project" since it still needs to be quilted together, but I thought I'd share anyway...   Smiley

Here are some pencil cases/pouches I made using this *fabulous* tutorial (thanks e.r.i.c.a.!).  A little embroidery, some felt, and a few beads/sequins go a long way, no?  Also, the gorilla image I used is the same one as the Gorilla Coffee logo (a micro-roastery in Brooklyn, which I love love love).


P.S.  This is my first craft post!
