2  Re: Quilted Potholders in Quilting: Completed Projects by morus on: April 04, 2010 04:55:13 PM
ostera15,  Your potholders were an inspiration to me.  Unfortunately, my sewing machine does not handle thick layers at all.  My potholders are machine pieced (stitch and flip on a paper foundation), but are hand quilted and the binding is hand stitched too.  I'm surprised I can type with these sore fingers!  Now that I have pictures, maybe I can go ahead and actually use them!

3  Tiny Beer in CHALLENGE 48 ENTRIES by morus on: March 04, 2010 05:35:03 PM
My first challenge entry!  Please enjoy this tiny crocheted beer.  I was fooling around with some yarn scraps after I learned to make crocheted I-cord.  What fun!

4  Morocco Bangle beaded bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by morus on: February 14, 2010 02:46:12 PM
I saw this project on Craft Bits  (http://www.craftbits.com/project/morocco-bangle)
awhile back and decided to make a bracelet for my niece who's turning 21 on the 21st.  After I made a nice batch of bead soup, it was a very quick, easy and fun project with nice results.

5  Pink Wiener Dog in Crochet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by morus on: January 31, 2010 10:09:56 AM

I recently accepted the challenge of a commission for a pink wiener dog.  The body is based on the crocheted kitten, made much longer of course.  The head was a learning experience!  Wiggly eyes and the pompom nose were lucky thrift store finds.  His/her mouth is a thin strip of felt glued on.  My client seemed well pleased.

6  Mad Dog and Beetle Bug from Softies book in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by morus on: November 21, 2009 05:41:45 PM

I've come down with a mild case of "softie fever" and was smitten with Mad Dog from "Softies Only A Mother Could Love".  Then, a friend gave me a couple yards of black suede-like fabric.  Destiny!  My sewing machine thread kept breaking though and I sewed him by hand.

Beetle Bug was the inspiration for this one.  She's sewn from fabric scraps and her gingham legs have quilt batting filling for added body.

7  Pink octopus & pet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by morus on: November 20, 2009 04:31:53 AM

Pink octopus has a pet puppy.  The stuffed dog is about 3", to give an idea of the scale.

8  Small Art Quilt - Mature Content in Needlework: Completed Projects by morus on: November 19, 2009 06:25:22 PM

Here's a small art quilt (6" X 5") I crafted using techniques I learned from Susan Shie at Turtle Art Camp.  Multicolor embroidery embellishes the applique and creates the quilting, bugle beads and seed beads add pizazz. 
These are so much fun to make!

Here's a rug made of recycled T-shirt yarn.  All the rows are worked from right to left, no turning at the end of the row. The long tails are tied to form the fringe.
