1  Calendar envelopes - with brief, detailed tutorial in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by PaisleyPanther on: January 09, 2008 05:45:55 PM
inspired by this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218905.0 of course.

Here they are - made from a calender published by the Historical society where I'm from

A couple backs - I like how the snowy house one has trees lined up on the back.

Now for a tutorial!

I used this http://images.scrippsweb.com/DIY/2004/02/20/large_envelope_template.pdf template

1. Get together a glue stick, scissors, an old calender and a ballpoint pen.

2. cut out your template and trace it on to the inside of your future envelope

3. Cut out this first envelope, but don't use it yet, because the stiff paper of the calender is much easier to trace than printer paper. Trace lots more.

4. Cut out everything. Carefully.

5. Here's an important tip - SCORE the fold lines with a ball point pen, scoring tool, or paperclip. press hard!

6. fold in the sides, and fold up the bottom(the shorter bit)

7. put a little glue on both sides that will be stuck together.

8. Revel in your envelopes. Maybe make some lick and stick glue for the tops from jello and vinegar (there are easy recipes online)

2  Feelings are boring, kissing is awesome! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by PaisleyPanther on: May 30, 2007 06:31:23 PM
For any who are fans of Ryan North's Qwantz.com/Dinosaur Comics - I cordially present....


Never seen in the comic, only on a t-shirt, I made the professor out of an old 4-H t-shirt, buttons from an old blouse, and the cuff of a pair of black jeans (and also some black thread).

Here is just his head, next to my Christmas themed window (yes, I've procrastinated forever getting him here)

Finally, me holding him with the tee I got for my birthday.

Comments appreciated!!

When I got home I found a package on the kitchen table.
It was for my Mom.
I checked the door and there was a note for another package!
It was for my Dad.
I checked the mail box and there was a note for another package!!

An insane reaver inspired bracelet with skulls

Even though Reavers creep me out I'm wearing it because it is cool.

A pretty satiny/silky pouch held the bracelet with Serenity beaded on the front

and here is the inside

I'm saving my favourite two for last!!

A double-sided pillow with a first instarsia project! Donating your first instarsia is a huge step!

and the back has a blue illusion hand! I am going to try some illusion knitting just because of this!

And then a SPACE MONKEY (all caps is totally appropriate in this situation)

He looks a little worried in this picture, but really he just wishes he was headbanging. His hair is perfect for it.

I think the way his space pants go around his tail is clever... so I took a picture of that and his tail puff.

It is a little hard to see... but this also shows the engine room wire that he ripped apart.

I can only hope Sandylin likes my stuff as much as I love hers!

(you may think I used too many superlatives and exclamation marks.... but you aren't here.)

4  My Mother's Quilts --- Img Heavy in Quilting: Completed Projects by PaisleyPanther on: January 29, 2006 10:43:39 AM
I'm trying to post some quilts that my mother made.... I love them and thought they should get some props....
She isn't really too computer savvy, so I thought I would do it for her.  Unfortunately I couldn't find any pictures of her best four quilts that were done with photo transfer as wall-hangings for various families, but I will upload them later if possible.

Also, I'm only uploading quilts that my mother designed herself... no pattern.

This is an example of an "Eye Spy" quilt that my mom makes. She has made one for each new member of the family (babies), plus 5 or so others that she has sold.  They are for playing Eye Spy (duh) so the blocks are simple and have various types of fabric in them. No pattern repeats. There is also a square that is usually embroidered with the baby's full name and birth date but this one was for a charity raffle so there is no name on it.

This quilt was made for the same raffle and has a self-designed paper peice saltbox house block.   It is a King size.

This is probably the most boring of the memory wallhangings my mom has made. This one was made for a friend of the family, and features pictures of her kids.
