Thank you!!!

THREE Terriers??? OMG! I think I'd need a shot of vodka to start my day with three of those tornadoes around. LOL

Here's my friend's Terrier, Lady Bug.

Look at that face! Who'd have known she'd just demolished a million things before this shot was taken.  Grin

23  Terrier in Needlework: Completed Projects by nasty_wench on: August 23, 2007 12:03:52 PM
My bbf has two dogs: a German Shephard and a totally bad Terrier.

Her birthday is next week. I made a no sew petportrait of her German Shephard (Jake). It's over on the misc board: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=191886.0

And decided to attempt to embroider the Terrier. I found a great old-looking frame and matted it messily (trying to age it a bit) with fabric.

We take her dogs to play in the river a lot. Hence she is standing in water. The flower is in her mouth, because Terriers are super-naughty and always taking things they shouldn't!

I should note, the Terrier is such a rip off of the Aranzi-Aronzo Terrier that I adore.

24  Jake, another No Sew Pet Portrait *w/photo* in Completed Projects by nasty_wench on: August 23, 2007 11:58:10 AM
Well, it's my bff birthday on Monday. I had promised to make her a no sew pet portrait of her German Shephard, Jake. (Jake is also my God-son-dog.)

I made an embroidered cartoon-style portrait of her Terrier too (it's over on the embroidery board). It's here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=191888.msg2018396#msg2018396

This is my third no sew doggie pic. So much fun to make. If you'd like to give it a go, there Are some links on an earlier post about them: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=165389.0

25  Re: Fabric Covered Buttons TUTORIAL (NO KITS)!!! in Completed Projects by nasty_wench on: August 16, 2007 10:15:53 AM
Villiku I think your tutorial is awesome. I posted a link to it from a Flickr group I'm in as well as a link from my craftblog.

So, using your directions I made something new. Smiley

I used the non-shank styled buttons and added magnets to the back. Embroidered fabric covered button magnets! Say that three times.

26  Crazy Quick Quilt Card *w/photo* in Completed Projects by nasty_wench on: August 05, 2007 08:45:56 AM
I can honestly say that this has no place in the quilt section of craftster. I can just see those super-talented quilters thinking, she thinks this is a quilt?

My friend Wendy's birthday had come and gone while I was away. I was going to make her a card but I realized I had grabbed my sewing bag, not my paper crafts bag when I left the house the other night.

So, I decided I'd make her a quilt-syle card.

It doesn't open up or anything. And it's not supposed to look anything other than homemade. Just a little fun thing so she knows I spent a few minutes making something for her.

I just love "B" days!

27  Happiness is... super cute rag balls *w/photo* in Completed Projects by nasty_wench on: August 03, 2007 10:57:11 PM
First of all, I wasn't sure where to stick this. Homewears? Fabric? I hope it's OK here.

Secondly, this is one of those "it's way too easy" things. Should I even post it? Then I thought, I might as well. Everyone can just ignore the post if it's that lame.  Wink

So, I had a bunch of fabric scraps (don't we all). I had seen fabric balls in this huge country decor book. I can't remember the name of it now however I thought the rag balls were a-phreakin'-dorable.

So I made a few when I was bored. They require no real planning and only basic supplies: fabric, and in this case, felt to cut into flowers and embroidery thread.

I think some crafters use Styrofoam balls in the middle but I have sooooooooooooooooooooooo many fabric scraps, and I'm not real big on Styrofoam, so I just rolled a few scraps to make the core of the ball.

Last night I made another so, I'm just going to throw them in a jar or bowl and put them on my dining room table.

But I think, using the right fabrics, you could use them as Christmas ornaments or maybe make them in an egg shape for Easter.

28  Thank You for Fixing My Jeep Card *Now with working picture* in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by nasty_wench on: July 28, 2007 05:06:10 PM
While away on vacation last week, my Jeep needed emergency repairs. We were in coastal Maine and had to return to Canada. It was a Monday morning. I didn't think anyone would be able to take us in their garage.

But we found an awesome Jeep dealership in Ellsworth, ME  who took us right in, even though they were super busy.

So I decided to send them a thank you card. Of course, being a craftster, it had to be a homemade one.

P.S. My BF says that the people at the garage will think I'm nuts for making them a homemade card. Isn't this normal?

29  Re: angry chicken's bend the rules sewing?? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by nasty_wench on: July 27, 2007 07:55:23 AM
Can you order books from amazon.com in Australia? Maybe eBay would have a copy?

I think this book ROCKS!

Here are a few more projects I made from bend-the-rules SEWING:

Fabric Coasters. Made similarly to the directions. I didn't iron as I went along (actually I didn't for any of the projects I made recently as I made them while travelling or away from my sewing room).

I also didn't sew an edge stitch when I was finished as I liked the homey look they had.

I love the zipper purse! So easy to make. Who'd have ever though that sewing in a zipper could be this easy?

The no cash wallet it's my fav to fate. Here's what it looks like closed up:

And opened, it looks like this:

I have a feeling I'll make about 80% of the projects from this gem.

30  No Sew Fabric Tiara in CHALLENGE 19 ENTRIES by nasty_wench on: July 04, 2007 02:39:28 PM
I love fabric. I mean I totally love fabric: the colours, the patterns, the textures. Fabric can be cool and exiting. Or it can be sensual and soft, shiny and sexy, warm and fuzzy, the list is endless.

I love to sew, glue and wrap with fabric.

That being said, when I found this craft challenge this morning I really wanted to enter a fabric tiara. Of course this speaks to my inner craft diva (who quite often takes over my soul), but I had such a lack of time to create.

I decided to make a no-sew fabric tiara. This project was fairly quick. More importantly, it was fun! Plus, I made everyone at work try it on.

So, I sat down at my desk and drafted out two possible versions. I decided on this one. 

This was made with two layers of the same light pink floral fabric. In between is a layer of stiff fusible fabric stabilizer and a layer of fusible webbing.

The "jewels" are made with a scrap floral fabric that was doubled up with fusible wedding to ensure the fabric of the tiara wouldn't show through.

I glued the rick rack on with Aileen's tacky glue.

The hook and eye closure (it's adjustable) was created with that awesome new iron-on Velcro. I'd just like to point out that this new product should win an award. Velcro just took their product up about five levels with the iron-on version.

Overall, my inspiration for this (and just about 80% of my projects) is flowers, and the 70's. Hence the floral fabric and the yellow rick rack. Long live rick rack!

I know this isn't a winner... but I just had to contribute.
