91  Re: The Amazing T-shirt Swap! in The Swap Gallery by liebschien on: May 10, 2006 09:45:50 PM
Amytron, I am so glad you are happy with the shirt! I took a kind of crappy picture of the decorated part of the shirt. My camera and I haven't been working too well together, but here's the photo anyway:

Please post an action shot if you are up for it whenever you find your camera. I would love to see it on you.

For the rest of you, it is an iron-on transfer for dark t-shirts with stitching as an embellishment. I liked it enough to make one for me, too.  Cheesy

My unconditional wish was "anything with dragonflies on it," or something like that. Well, Alwaysinmyroom went above and beyond fullfillment with her amazing and thoughtful package for me. She is such a generous person! Look how she spoiled me:

She made a velvet bag she embossed herself with dragonflies. I highlighted one of the embossings in this photo so you all could see how cute it is:

AND she sent instructions and supplies for doing my own velvet embossing!

It was full of wonderful dragonfly thingamajiggies!

Pretty ribbons and trims, five copper patina buttons, two large buttons, and a little baggie full of dragonfly charms!

There was paper, too...so cute!

Lots of pretty asian inspired fabrics. They feel so silky!

And these two gorgeous fabrics:

They were wrapped in a golden organza ribbon.

I've already got plans for most everything she sent me to make things for myself. I don't do enough of that, but with goods like this, I can't wait!!

Oh my gosh. Thank you for all the kind words. I'm glad you like it. It was tons of fun to make for you. I know what it's like not to see your best friend for a long time (I haven't seen my best friend in over a year now) and I really hope the best for your trip.

I did take pictures of the bag, but forgot to take a picture of the cuff. Here it is:

Have fun!!

94  Box cutters are dangerous! in Stitch And BOTCH by liebschien on: April 23, 2006 01:39:28 PM
I was cutting rubber off the sole of a shoe with a box cutter for the Footwear Revamp crafting challenge and I slipped!

I went to the emergency room and got three staples put in my leg. This was my first emergency room visit as a patient.

I didn't finish the challenge. I cringed whenever I looked at the shoes after this so I just threw them away.

EDIT: Ooops! I'm sorry! I posted this before I saw the craft injuries thread! I'm sorry! Feel free to delete this post - no hard feelings.

95  Thank you, Knit_Core!!!! in The Swap Gallery by liebschien on: March 28, 2006 01:43:27 PM
Thank you, Knit_Core!!!!

I am overjoyed with everything you sent me. Goodies and treasures galore! I feel really lucky that my first swap was as great as it could be.

It was a hefty box! I managed to carry it back to the house with one arm full of magazines and my other arm tugged by a dog. How did I manage such a feat? I will never reveal my secret box carrying technique. Torture is futile.

So I opened the box and there's a gorgeous stencil on black canvas. My heart leapt at the thought of it being a tote. It was! I got a little emotional with happiness at how cool this whole swap business is and my eyes welled up a bit.

Inside the bag there was ALL KINDS OF STUFF!

Is there such a thing as too many pictures? I hope not.

Here is MOST everything:

I love the card!

For the life of me, I couldn't get a shot of the bag by itself without it being all blurry, so here's a close-up of the stencil:

The bag was loaded with candies inside:

They are fantastic candies. Kind of chewy and 100% delicious:

And I think these are the most fancy chocolates I have ever seen:

I live in a very rural part of central Florida - we don't have stuff like this.

Look at this sweet little treasure box! Real coffee beans and one of my favorite colors!!

This bracelet was the treasure inside. How did you poke holes in the beans? This is so cool!

There were also two mysterious lumps wrapped in fabric. I had my suspicions that they were mugs. This fabric is incredible. I will be using this in an upcoming project for sure!

I was right! I am not kidding when I say I think these are some of the prettiest mugs I've ever seen. I love the shape and they feel good in my hand.

But one mug had an attachment. It is a MUG COZY!! Oh My God - I love this cozy! It is my very favorite color and it is a soft yarn. The stitch is so elegant - some kind of open weave knitting stitch. The button is perfect. My jaw dropped when I saw this. Wow.

I'm still in awe of it all. I can't say thank you enough, but I really am grateful for all the thoughtfulness and talent you shared with me.

Now I'm going to go try one of those chocolates!!!

96  Harry Potter Magnets - don't look if you are WEBMYCURY! in Completed Projects by liebschien on: March 16, 2006 02:33:40 PM
Well, I made some magnets. I am not sure about them because they are kind of wrinkly. I need help with that.

They look okay here:

But in the right light you can see the wrinkles:

I used left-over magnet pieces for the back:

1. I printed the images on sticker paper, then I stuck those to some felt.

2. I cut out the felt and stickers together.

3. I mod-podged the stickers to the felt. This is when the paper wrinkled.

4. I cemented the magnets to the back.

So, how can I prevent the wrinkling? ANY suggestions (different materials, different techniques, etc.) are very much appreciated. Thank you!
