1  Re: Magic Yarn Ball Swap 5 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by baby-bumblebee on: July 11, 2007 07:08:00 AM
Ok so this had to be one of the best swaps ever! Pic heavy. If anyone gets junwin as a buddy be aware she will totally spoil you. Smiley

I was totally and 100% spoiled rotten by Julie ( junwin). I have not started to make my mermaid yet because I have so many projects that I want done before summer. So I am thinking the pattern she sent will be a three time Christmas present to my little ones. Smiley

Ok so this is everything together!

close up see all those charms they are all beachy stuff that I oh so love!

smell good soaps

baggies of buttons and safty eyes  and stickers that the kids took right away. Smiley

better pic of the charms

mags for the fridge. They are so cute and I love them!!! My DH was totally impressed as was I with these. Smiley

and a small cheat in my favor. LOL Smiley

Three balls of yarn because the pattern calls for three diffrent colors. Smiley Plus they are cotton one of my favs. I am weird and love the smell of cotton yarn for some reason. Smiley Plus it is so soft and will make the mermaid so soft and loveable. Smiley

Plus not picture Sad sorry everyone the camera started to fight me right after these pics and I had it in my project bag. Was a awsome needle roll!!! I love it. It is the pretteist purple with cool cunky designs all over it. Handmade by Julie and it is perfect! I was wanting one so bad!! They are great and if you are looking for one let me tell you that she does a perfect job on them!

Thanks so much Julie for all the great goodies and the perfect pattern and yarns. Smiley

Thanks for making the swap frogeyesalad it has been sooooooo much fun.

3  Blocking thrift store find? in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by baby-bumblebee on: June 06, 2007 10:53:21 AM
I found two cute I guess needlework pieces at the thrift store. I just happened to pick them up when the thrift lady walked by and she said I could have both for a buck! I was sold. I really thought she would have wanted more.

The owl is about 5x7 and is in pretty good shape. I am thinking I might wash him and the other becuase I am not sure who done it and they might have not been as clean handed as needed.

The other is about an 8x10 or bigger and is is all out of shape. How do I go about blocking it? Do I need anything special? I know how to block when crocheting but not this. With crochet you pretty much wet the item and then pull it into place and then put a towel over it to help it dry once pretty dry you take the towel off and let it dry overnight.

Here are the pics of the two items. I think I got a great deal and they will look prefect hanging someplace.

Plus these piece have made me want to learn to hand embroider and maybe learn to needlepoint.


Thanks for any help.

Ok so the wash is done. Well it has been for some time now and so far seems to clean very well.

Here is a pic of two very dirty items before wash.


this is them after the wash and dry.

Came out pretty good this was the shirt dd wore on her last day of school and she played in mud, paint, chalk, and had a choc. donut. Then I found it stuffed under her bed with the towel so it had been under the bed for at least a week. I think it came out pretty clean. I know have a soak going and I put this shirt and some others that were prett stain in the soak to see how clean it might come.

I also did a test with dh. He could not tell what was washed in store brand and what was washed in my home made soap.

Ok here I am ready to post pics of the outfit I made for my daughter.

Onesie/t-shirt dress with matching sash/hairwrap and pair of pants:

You can't see the pants very well, I'll try to take another pic. The outfit is a bit large on her. The pants were my first ever clothing project. I used a pattern for those. The dress was a combination of reading several different tutorials and looking at a few on ebay. No pattern was used.

Boy Pants girly-fied:

These were a pair of boy pants that belonged to my son. I was too lazy to sew so I used fabric glue to add some leftover fabric (from the dress) to the inside of the pants so that it shows when you fold over the cuffs. The belt is the sash from the dress. The pictures where taken today and I couldn't find a matching shirt in her dresser so i took a plain onesie and added the heart using heat-n-bond. I'll sew it on permanently when I get the chance.

OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE the skirt ( and really love the tops and pants as well! What tuts did you use?  I want to make something for my DD's and just love the skirt you did. Smiley

6  leftover fabric in What the heck can I do with THIS? by baby-bumblebee on: February 22, 2006 07:23:34 PM
ok this will be really fast cause the baby just woke up and he will not be happy just in my lap for long.  Tongue

My greatgrandmother passed a few years ago and left me all her quilting stuff. This included a ton of finsihed quilts about 8. A ton of unfished quilt tops and squares and a ton of fabirc I would guess well over 50lbs of fabric no lie. I have sorted thru the fabirc put aside what I need to someday finish the quilts she started, fabric that I could use for my children and some for myself, and a few others that I just liked.

what I am left with is over 16lbs of renments (spelling) some over a yard others not, and scraps, and a few ribbions.

So what should I do with all this fabirc? I was thinking of selling it on ebay but afraid too. I have no idea what I should start it out as. What I should list it as ect..

So besides making more quilts what could I do with it?

Here is a pic (I think) of the fabric. I may sell it at a yard sale but really do not know. Never done this sort of thing before. I would keep it just in case I make a quilt but I have a ton of fabirc I bought for this and have also taken a ton of her fabirc for this. I live in FL so I really do not need too many quilts. I would like to keep the quilts of hers that are done and semi done to pass on to her great great grandchildren. Thanks for any ideas everyone.  Smiley
