1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Placemat for sewing machine on: August 11, 2007 08:39:03 AM
I don't really know where to put this project i whipped up. It's a placemat for my sewing machine. The inspiration was from this site here: http://www.wardi.dk/2007/08/sewing-machine-mat-tutorial.html

I used up some scraps of mines after my amy butler quilt: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=186687.0

As usual I didn't cut enough squares so I ended up adding a huge block of fabric to make it up to the size. I figured, the sewing machine is going to cover almost all of the mat so why bother?? As you can see my delimma to post this here as it said:For those hard-working quilters...we bow to your patience.

On with the pictures!

That black backing fabric is boucle (?) and it helps the sewing machine glide across my table  Smiley otherwise when you try to move it, you have to lift it and place it down. and i do that many times coz i need my machine to be correctly lined to the millimeter!

As I said, the sewing machine covers most of it up:

Plus I also made a pincushion:

Except this one is not velcroed down.

I really liked this project. real easy to whip up and you can customise like making it longer and adding pockets for those loose thread trimmings...   Wink
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / One sock (please note singularity) on: August 11, 2007 08:16:35 AM
This is my first ever sock. It's not really a sock either. More like a tubey kind of sock:

I did try to make normal socks but got lost after the bit where you have to turn the heel thingo. But then I saw a pair of socks (which were bought) and said hey! that's pretty much a tube kind. no silly heel turning there!  Grin

Next to said socks:

That's when I wear it.

It's not that bad! Well I only wear woolly thick socks for sleeping. If I wear thick socks with sneakers, my sneakers become real tight.  Embarrassed

This is my first knitting of something other than a scarf. I'm starting the other side of this sock. Can't wait to have both pairs!

Comments, criticism, anything I don't mind!  Smiley
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 21st birthday card on: July 31, 2007 05:28:55 AM
Just a little inspiration for a card:

I made it for a friend's 21st.

The front of the card is just woven ribbon. It was a blank card from an arts shop and the chandalier is from a necklace. All the ribbon was stuck down by glue gun. The row of butterflies were just small stickers.
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Simple Amy Butler Quilt on: July 31, 2007 05:26:02 AM
This quilt was made using rectangles. It's the first quilt I made and I really wanted to use this green retro fabric from a friend but didn't want to cut it up too much.

The pattern is from the Amy Butler website under free patterns. Most of the fabric I had to buy and the size fits my single bed. I didn't end up quilting it but I love it all the same!

As you can see, I kinda stuffed up the patchwork arrangement.

The back is a blue flannel material with pink cats. I bought 5m of that long long time ago.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bag for my sister on: July 31, 2007 05:23:24 AM
My sister chose the fabric herself as well as the button. It's a brown tartan kind of fabric with gold lines for the outside and a green satin fabric lining for the inside.

The pattern is a "skipping bag" pattern where I saved a tute from craftster AGES ago. I'm sure if you type in skipping bag it will take you to a tute or it might be on the big tute list.

I hate hate the satin lining!! I'm sure most people will agree that it is the hardest thing to sew!!

Oh, I used gold thread to topstitch. Thought I might as well compliment the gold already in the fabric!

Plus this is the first project with my new woven tags!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Green Hoodie and floral Lining on: July 23, 2007 05:55:05 PM
With a 5 week break from uni, I haven't had much to show you guys. But I do have a hoodie! It's winter here in Australia (in case you guys were wondering why I am making a hoodie).

It's made out of a green knit fabric and the hood is lined with a flower fabric (it's my favourite fabric in my stash). The knit is not very thick so it's perfect for those not-very-cold winter days.

The pattern is a Burda 8291 in view E. The instructions and sewing it up was easy. The only thing that didn't quite fit was the sleeves which kinda bunched up at the top. I made this in a size 10 according to the measurements and it fits pretty good. The sleeves are end just before my hands and it is the perfect length.

Other than that, I really like it and would definately make them again!

Pictures time!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / GIANT hooded hoodie on: July 04, 2006 10:37:15 PM
This is my GIANT hooded hoodie which I sewed up AND reconstructed. It's from a pattern and I found out the whole thing was too big after they were cut. The giant-ness of hood is because it is the only pattern piece that I did not change. But hey, it fits my head!  Grin

I made it out of black tracksuiting material and lined the inside of the hood with brocade. I looooooooove it!!  Cheesy

Pics! Pics! Pics!  Cheesy
