1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Sesame Street Quilt (finally finished!) on: May 07, 2006 09:31:39 AM
Well, I finally finished the Sesame Street Quilt I was making for my niece.  I got all the patterns for this one from the book "Quilting with the Muppets".  It is out of production, but you can still find the book in new condition on eBay for fairly cheap.  If you're interested, you can check out this link for my progress pictures as I was making it & answers to questions:

So, here it is!

4  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Jim Henson Swap (Sign-ups CLOSED. SEND OUT EXTENED TO 4/22/06) on: March 01, 2006 06:22:27 AM
And now let's get things started...(Why don't you get things started?)...It's time to get things started on the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational swap of all swaps! Yes, folks, here is the long awaited Jim Henson Swap! 

Swap name: Jim Henson Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: anna-begins
Sign-up date range: 3/1/06 - 3/15/06
Date to send item by: 4/22/06
Limited to a certain number of people? Nope!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? YES
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages (16 and under please get permission from your parents!)
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: YES
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

This Swap is to celebrate Jim Henson, so it can include anything he was involved in. When we hear the name Jim Henson, the first things that come to mind are Muppets and monsters; however, Jim was also involved in creating some wonderful fantasy worlds where Fraggles danced their cares away, Gelflings raced to get the shard to the crystal in time, and Davie Bowie wore tights.

Because this swap is not limited to one show or movie, it is possible that you may get a partner who has different Henson favorites than you do. I will do my best to match people up with similar interests, but I may not always be able to do that. For example, a Sesame Street fan might be paired up with a Dark Crystal fan and have to make crafts that pertain to their partner's likes and not necessarily their own. Because of this, I've listed some links to where you can find information about some of the shows/movies/etc. that Jim was involved in. You can find the list here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73613.msg776287#msg776287

I am not putting any specific rules on this swap, like you must send "x amount of items".  Please just work hard on what you make and send something out that you're proud of.

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Inspirational Tree Box on: January 18, 2006 06:21:31 PM
I bough an unfinished box at Michaels and decoupaged it with mullberry paper.  I had a really cool tree scrapbook attachment and some inspirational phrases that say hope, imagine, believe, and dream that seemed to go well with the tree theme.  So I put them all together and here's what I came up with.  Sorry for the poor picture quality.  I need to add that I was totally inspired by craftster member amaryllisroze's AWESOME shrine boxes.

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / My First Gingerbread House on: December 18, 2005 06:43:54 PM
I'm 31 and I've never made a gingerbread house so I decided to give it a go this year.  I'm a big sugary mess and it didn't turn our how I imagined it would in my head but it still makes me happy.


7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Why are there so many songs about rainbows - Fleece Blanket on: October 23, 2005 05:59:05 PM
Here's my first "no sew" fleece blanket!  I love the fabric sooo much!  I'm happy with how it turned out, and it's so nice and warm!

I don't know if you can see the pattern real well, but it has Kermit the Frog and Animal sitting on rainbows.  The plain fleece is a pale blue that matches the outlines of the stars and clouds on the patterned fleece.

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Sesame Street/Muppet Show Quilts (In Progress) on: September 25, 2005 05:06:31 PM
(update: As of 5/7/06 - I have finally finished the Sesame Street Quilt!  You can see it here:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93914.0)

I have a brand new baby niece and my sister asked me to make her a Sesame Street Quilt.  I bought a book called "Quilting with the Muppets" on eBay.  I started making the squares for the Sesame Street Quilt (which will actually hang on the wall because of all the different types of fabric I'm using, some aren't "baby safe") and decided I needed to make a MUPPET SHOW quilt for myself!  So what if I'm 31?... I love the Muppets!  The problem is that the book has only 4 patterns for "Muppet Show Muppets" so I've been making some of them with my own pattern.  So far I've only made some squares & haven't started any of the actually quilting yet, or any of the satin stitching that's needed, but I'm having so much fun & I wanted to share some of the squares with you.

For the Sesame Street Quilt:

For the Muppet Show Quilt:

I didn't want to make this post too image heavy since it's not the finished project, but if you'd like to see more of the squares I've done so far you can check them out here:

(editing to add this) Here's what I've got done with the Sesame Street one so far!
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Froggy & Ducky Soap! on: September 11, 2005 05:04:56 PM
I made 40 of the rubber ducky soaps for my sister's duck-themed baby shower as party favors for the guests.  I scented them with cherry-lime fragrance oil.  I put each soap in a clear plastic cello bag & tied it with a ribbon that said "It's a Girl!"  I made a few of the frog soaps to give to my nephew. 

(I apologize for the poor picture quality)

I got the instructions on how to make them from:

They were a big hit at the shower!   Smiley
