11  Felted Slippers in Shoes: Completed Projects by Stifflersmom on: January 24, 2012 05:46:49 PM
This is a little bit of recycling, felting and kids footware.
I made slippers from felted wool sweaters for my nieces for Christmas this year. The pattern is free from HellomynameisHeather. http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/Booties.html

I added holly leaves cut from felt, buttons and some pre-cut felt snowflakes to jazz them up a bit.

This pair is for the walker. The soles are cut from the wrist of the sweater. The sweater was a hoodie, so I snipped the hood cord and used it for a loop to help make them easier to pull on.

12  Elk Quilt, part two in Quilting: Completed Projects by Stifflersmom on: January 06, 2012 07:28:25 PM
Somehow I ended up with a lot of Elk-lovin-men-folk in my life. The quilt below was a Christmas gift.

13  A dingo ate my baby or a new mattress for a doll bed in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Stifflersmom on: September 15, 2011 05:47:27 PM
I found this doll crib in the rafters at madre's. My puppitos needed a place to chill while visiting the studio, so I whipped up a new mattress so they can veg while mom cuts big fabric into little fabric and re-sews it into big fabric.

I measured the bed and cut out the fabric with an extra half-inch to allow for seams. I quilted the top with bamboo batting and muslin. The body is standard cushion foam cut to size and wrapped in more batting.

I'm thinking of giving the crib a fresh coat of paint, but I hate to cover the vintage waterslide decals.

14  Halloween/Wizard of Oz Wall Hanging in Quilting: Completed Projects by Stifflersmom on: September 15, 2011 05:24:47 PM
This is my version of a pattern I picked up this summer.
I used no-sew applique stuff and quilted a spiderweb pattern over the top with a silver thread.

Here's a closer shot just before binding.

Without further ado.... May I present.....
Madam Black's Wicked Circus "Dance of the Nightmares" by the traveling exhibition Danse Macabre
crafted by cackle......

Inside it says "The wind whispers wicked, wicked..."

It's absolutely exquisite and provided a pleasing spine-tingling chill. The skelly on the left is articulated and dances when the tin is jiggled. It's amazingly tiny!

If you have better photos, please post them, cackle. My camera hasn't been the same since it fell into the queso dip last weekend....

I'm not a cheat, I sent a tin (and a cheese box).  

Just for that I'm going to make you all wait in anticipation for photos of the Wicked Awesome tin I received from cackle.
So there.

Cheesy be back on my lunch break.

I love how an 'accident' forces you to go beyond what you were planning. Not at the time, of course.... Cheesy

Here's a pic of the quilt I sent to pioneer9. The words from her questionairre that stuck with me were blue, purple, at night, and trees. This is the first art quilt I've attempted and the very first raw edge applique. I'm terrible with a camera, the light box seems to have washed it out a bit and made the edges look wonky.  Embarrassed

Thanks for swapping with me, pioneer9. Your Frida is hanging in my studio and is very inspiring.

What a fun interpretation!

I received this weekend, too! The lovely pioneer9 sent me Frida -

The piecing is spot-on and a fabulous quote!
I'm not so good with a camera - I'm sorry I didn't do it justice.

Thanks so much, I love it!!

19  Mug Rug in Quilting: Completed Projects by Stifflersmom on: February 08, 2011 10:15:09 AM
I made this mug rug for Rosy Posie in a recent swap.


The reverse side:

It's binded in the french style using a strip of 1" fabric, mostly due to a miscalculation with the rotary tools and a lack of extra material. Cheesy

I just love the shape she chose and the theme!

Thanks so much!!
