1  Stacked Coins in Quilting: Completed Projects by craftymed on: December 20, 2009 01:47:36 PM
Here's a "stacked coins" quilt I made for my friend as a wedding gift.  It's a queen sized quilt, and I did made some small (16x16) matching pillows.  The stacks actually go vertically on the bed, but it was photographed sideways (whoops).  The backing is a darker blue with one stack going horizontally, so it has a more "manly" side if her husband should like to flip it.  I know my quilting lines aren't perfect, but that's what makes it homemade Smiley

2  Amy Butler Brick Path in Quilting: Completed Projects by craftymed on: December 20, 2009 01:40:39 PM
Here's a full sized quilt I made for a friend's benefit auction.  I used the Amy Butler Brick Path pattern, which is available free out on the internet.  The fabrics are a mix of fabulous stuff from my local quilt shop, but do include a bunch of Amy Butler's fabrics anyways.

I got my parents a farm-rejected Patterdale (she wasn't into catching mice) a few years back.  They loved my lab mix, but said she was too big.  So a little research and a lucky day reading the Classifieds, I found them Maggie!

4  Easy Formal White Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by craftymed on: March 02, 2008 08:37:47 AM
This was made from McCall's 3883 with some lovely fabric that I picked up on supersale.  It is lined, but I assure you that it still wasn't hard.  Sorry for the MacBook pics, the little doors on my camera lens won't open!!

Thanks for looking!  Questions and comments always welcome.  Okay, except for comments about my poor modeling skills and lack of facial expressions!!

I'm a dorky doctor (a surgeon in fact) so I had to get something medically related.  I found some old anatomical designs and used them to come up with the design.  I didn't get to watch any of it being done  because it's on my left ribs.  It wasn't really painful, but just annoying.  Oh, and it's really hard to take a picture of too!

6  Vellux blanket coat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by craftymed on: August 25, 2007 10:05:24 AM
You know those super soft blankets they have at hotels?  Well, the material is called Vellux and I made a coat from it.  They do sell the fabric at Joann's, but it's one-sided and not as soft (in my opinion).  So I bought a king-sized light blue blanket (at a JcPenny outlet store for only $20) and had plenty of fabric to make my coat.  I think I might make a matching hat and/or gloves.

I used McCall's pattern 4663.  I skipped the fake pocket flaps, but otherwise followed the pattern.  And yes, I know it's a little snug on me, but that's my own fault for enjoying food too much.  Oh well.  Oh, and I skipped the buttons for now.  I haven't found some that I really love just yet.

don't you always feel so silly modeling??

7  Roller Shades (lots o' pics) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by craftymed on: August 08, 2007 07:21:34 AM
I moved into a new apartment with old vinyl roller shades.  I couldn't deal with the plain beige vinyl so Craftster led me to some new ideas inspired by this previous post:


So I made my own.  Enjoy!

There are a few more around the house, but I'm not a good photographer.

10  Re: Dino costumes in Halloween Costumes by craftymed on: November 27, 2005 07:35:42 AM
Here's mine from last year.  I was never a dinosaur as a kid, so what's wrong with being one as an adult??

I used olive green fleece for the majority of the costume, and yellow felt for the bits.  I also put an old wire hanger in the tail so I could bend it around.  I had some elastic around the wrists and ankles for the hand and foot parts.  On the hands, I added a finger loop to keep them more snug.  I didn't have a pattern for an adult, so I just kinda made things up as I went along.

I know I'm not as cute as those little ones, but enjoy!
