I've used up a peice of blue tshirt fabric for doll undies and tshirt plus a pair of undies for me.

Alll of this fabric I bought years and years ago. What I chopped off of the bottom became new napkins.

And the last bit of this yarn.

Hey all,

Guess what I am wearing? Undies made by me! Self drafted, need a little adjustment but I am super tickled with these. Made from scrap tshirt material.

And I have a few other items I've managed to finish up too.

A cross stitch pattern that deviates from the original in almost all ways.

A Dodecahedron Thingymabob. (true name)

A top cut down from a dress that made me look even larger than I am. I seem to have gained some weight lately, I think it is the job I am working.  Hopefully my shirt will fit a bit better once I leave. But  I really hate how it makes my breasts look like they are having a meeting with my belly button.  This seems to always happens with this style gather on me.

Doll dress and undies, a belated birthday present for two nieces. The two dresses were made opposite of each other, one had a blue ruffle while the one you see has a pink ruffle and so on. Both have the same blue tshirt.

One niece also just earned her yellow belt in karate so I made a Gi with a yellow belt for her American Girl doll.

Have been using up nothing but stash this year. When this cold snap breaks, I intend to take an actual inventory of my stash and see what is out there in the building.

On to the stash busting! Smiley

I finished two aprons from stash, needing only to buy 3 packs of bias for the binding. The snaps came from a kit my husband bought for me two years ago. Do you see the waist strap in the picture? It is a different color because I ran out of the blue snowflake but had plenty of the white. Problem solved and I have a new apron!

Made up two pair of fleece socks for son. Don't they look like duck feet standing there by themselves?  Cheesy

The blue material you see in the background is more fleece that will become a pair or two of socks for my husband or maybe myself.

And in the spirit of using it all, or at least almost all of it, he got a pair of rough and tumble fingerless mitts so he can work on his creations out side.

There is still a little more of this left over and I am trying to decide if I want to make a second pair of mitts for him, a dusting mitt or a yogurt incubator blanket.  Undecided

Well, it seems  like I've been more productive than I have projects to show for. How does that happen?  Huh

I would like to show an apron I made for myself. Some of you may recognize the pattern from last year. I really love the shape of it and it covers me well.

I've made two of these, but the other one is for Christmas 2013. The only way I know to keep ahead of my crafting for the holidays.  Cheesy

And two pair of fleece socks for my son. He loves yellow and has sensitivity issues with his socks. In other words, he can not abide seams at the toes and will only wear hand knit ones. If he does not have hand knit socks, he will go without even in below freezing weather.

He loves these and wears them all the time. I intend to get more fleece next week to make a couple more pair. It is so awesome that I have found a solution to his needs without me taking a month to make one pair of socks for him. I made two pair in one afternoon.

And a pair of fingerless mitts from scraps. No knit or crochet ones for him until he is maybe 36? He is just so rough on them.

VegasZombie, I love the weiner doggie, both yarn and living. Smiley

Saintcady, that is one impressive rotating calender.

And I have received!!

VegasZombie, it is like you know me personally. Just and incredible package.

First, I asked for an altered tshirt. How funny is it that you created one in a style I have been eyeing for awhile?

Then, she altered a pair of pants into a skirt, something else I have been wanting to make. 

Notice the pink? I love pink. Pink, pink, pink, any shade will do.

A few months ago, I lost a shawl pin. VegasZombie sent another for me. How awesome!

But guys? This is the best part, the altered tshirt into a bag. Fair warning, this part is just a bit on the mature side. But oh so great.

Check out the fuzzy yellow balls along the top.  Wink

Dear heaven above, can you move near me and craft with me? I am thinking of using it for my summer purse.

Dishcloth scrubbies as part of a housewarming gift for my niece and her boyfriend who have just moved into their first home together  Grin This takes me to 34 counting the swap I've just finished but can't share yet  Smiley[/color]

K-star, I can't help but notice those dishclothes look very much like communicators.

A couple of small items, but it feels so good to destash.

Two happy orange bunnies from a frogged sweater and floss I've had for so long, I don't remember when I last bought floss.

One pair of slippers from another frogged sweater that I then dyed with Kool-Aid. I only had enough to finish one foot from each ball but I like the odd jester like look of these.

A few items I've finished.

Shamrock slippers, took me nearly two weeks. I remember a time when I could have had these finished before the kids got up for school in the morning.  Undecided

Three Two little bunnies with happy faces!

There used to be three, but one was claimed and given a good home.

Purple Divine hat.

And my hoodie/not hoodie.  We found this at the thrift shop the other day, I fell in love with the color and the fabric, so soft and warm.

I love hoodies, but hate pull over anything. So what do you, a Craftster chic, do when you have something you love but it does not quite work for you? Cut it, of course.

Put a new zipper in and voila!

Of course the fabric shop did not have a long enough zipper but I pushed on any way, happy with what I had.

Until I got the the much large fabric shop in the next town over, where they had much longer zippers in the color I need.

I guess I will be replacing this zipper with a longer one.  Roll Eyes

But check it out! My new hoodie!  Grin

9  What can you do with one quilt block? in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by rottenlittleboys on: March 05, 2012 05:44:54 PM
I recently found a cute pattern for a toy that requires making and then cutting a quilt square.

Being efficient, I cut out two, pieced both together and made the toy from one. Did not like how it looked, felt it was a monumental waste of perfectly good quilt piece. This is the best piecing I have done.

Ok, so maybe not perfect, but why destroy it like I did the other one?

Seriously, it hurts to look at that.  Sad

This square is huge (to me), nearly 13 inches across and the final disk was just over 8 inches.

So what do I do with one large square that does not go with my house, will never see a partner as I have finished off the yellow and can not replicate it no matter how I try?

Any suggestions would be great.

I used up several, several partial balls of kitchen cotton and nearly one cone of size 10 thread to make tons of kitchen dish cloths.

A close up of the ones I made for my sweet mom, just because she never asks me for anything and she really deserves some.  Kiss

And using up another yard or so of scrap fabric I've had for years now.

Not perfect maybe, but I am truly tickled with it.
