1  "Whacked Out Wives"- stack n whack quilt with Michael Miller 50s housewives... in Quilting: Completed Projects by spamantha on: June 13, 2006 10:20:58 AM
I finally finished this stack n whack quilt. Started it when I had 1 kid.  Now I have two, and the youngest is 2.5.  It sat half finished in a box for 2.5 years, and I am currently on a mission to get through ALL my UFOs.  Really.

I know, this probably proves I have a warped mind, but I loved using the housewives fabric for the stack n whack pattern, and seeing how the little women looked cut up and re-pieced...  My favorite star has a ring of little barbie-esque heads.

(I included an in process shot for a close up...)

My bra briefly made it onto TV today when a local news crew went to the LQS with the challenge!  I got like 5 whole seconds of fame...

3  Frida Bra-hlo (yup, a Frida Kahlo inspired bra...) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by spamantha on: February 05, 2006 04:08:50 PM
An LQS was having an embellished bra challenge, proceeds of entry fee to benefit Susan G. Komen Foundation.  Who can resist turning a bra into something funky? After playing around with various ideas, I came up with the "Frida Bra-hlo, a Lingerie Homage to Frida Kahlo".  My techniques are still pretty rudimentary, but I had fun making it.  Dropped it off at the store for the contest today.

The best part was that except for the actual bra, everything I used came straight from my stash!

Oh, and, the back is awful, I know.

4  Here's a newly finished one of mine... in Quilting: Completed Projects by spamantha on: February 03, 2006 02:40:41 PM

Made this one for my living room wall. Had it professionally quilted, as that's my least favorite part...

So, I got a book on this technique for Xmas, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1571203036/104-7709670-3969541?v=glance&n=283155 , and I tested it out on making a tote bag- not quite finished yet.    Hereis the bag, folded over and ready for a handle and lining... 

I find this a fun way to use up fabric stash. A bit tricker than the basic yarns I have worked with- less give.  But really fun!

6  Tattoo jeans in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by spamantha on: December 05, 2005 10:18:35 AM
I'm working on some tattoo jeans- with sublime patterns of course- and would love some input.  I'm also going to add cuffs of some really cute tattoo fabric i bought, but I'm not totally sure how to do that...  Advice loved and welcomed!

7  Kitschy Kitchen Kurtains- hanging up and done! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by spamantha on: September 28, 2005 05:48:13 PM
Thanks to some lovely suggestions on the discussion page (thank you all  Cheesy), I attempted my first ever curtains all by myself. I know they're not technically amazing, but I am loving their silliness.   Check em out:
They are a pair, but one seemed sufficient to get the idea!  Also, for folks who loved the fabric , it is still on clearance at http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=34340&sid=31U9Hz1FaJ@H7Kn-42105468035.be[/url]

8  My first doll! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spamantha on: September 19, 2005 07:35:55 PM
I made my first doll recently, and aside from the fact that a)her boobs are about 4 cup sizes different and b) I am terrified to add a face, i really like her.  Also- the fabric placement of the star right on her bum was total coincidence.

10  Kitschy Kitchen Kurtains in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by spamantha on: September 17, 2005 01:27:47 PM
I have fantastic fabric that I want to turn into some kitchen curtains, but I've never tried this before, being a newbie to DIY.  i do quilt, but that's the limit of my skill set!  Sad, but true.   Tongue  Does anyone out there have suggestions for this fabric and one fairly large kitchen window?  THANKS!
