1  Silk bow tie with Trout! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by flyangler on: October 28, 2015 11:56:03 AM
I am a flyangler and volunteer with Trout Unlimited in Mn and Wis doing habitat restoration and stream surveys. We survey with the help of the DNR to assess the population of trout and other species as related to the health of the watershed.

On one such survey, I was measuring a bucket of trout and snapped a photo of the whole shiny, spotted mess of them before letting them go. I used this photo to design some fabric on Spoonflower, which was printed on silk.

SeeKateSew has a good pattern and instructions for sewing bow ties.  Martha Stewart has some great reverse printed instructions for tying them that you can hang on your shirt button while you look in the mirror tying your tie!

So here's a finished tie that will be donated to a TU fundraiser.

2  Straw hat repair in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by flyangler on: October 01, 2015 09:57:44 AM
It's hard to find a good wide brimmed hat, so when the crown cracked, I repaired it with a little glue and a tulle patch. I also braided new leather stampede strings.  The fishing photo is a "before" shot.

My memory isn't as sharp as this sword. I don't remember if I posted my owl dress/tunic. A pal actually sewed it up for me before I got my serger.

She put stretch lace on as cuffs on the 3/4 sleeves and edged the neckline with it as well.

The sword is pretty dull, actually. Smiley

Stillatthetop-  I used Innovation Boku Undo Suminagashi pigment:

John and Sophie hand carved the linoleum blocks used for the black over-prints that you see on my sumi and water printed papers. The octopus, ammonite, and prehistoric squid and trilobyte are not stamps but block prints. The second photo shows John inking the squid block.

I decided to use the scrap corners from the snowballs to make a wee pinwheel and set it in the middle of the red plaid corner block. Is that log cabin style?

6  Ideas for corner blocks on shirt quilt additional question in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by flyangler on: February 28, 2014 07:45:04 AM
Hello quilters!

I'm making this recycled shirt quilt a la Kathy's Quilts from 2009:  http://thethriftyquilter.blogspot.com/2009/06/seven-shirts-seven-steps-one-thrifty.html

What do you think I should use for corner blocks? I'm mulling some sort of pinwheel made of the dark shirt scraps on a light shirt background. The blocks should come out to 6 1/2". I've never done any pinwheels. I'm still not a precise quilter, so don't judge me on wonky,  wavy or waffly-ness you see here. I suppose another nine patch would be easy enough.

With more caps, not yet nailed on.

Nancy, I agree in principle. It suffers the same useless fate as other re-usable shopping bags and baskets. Ya gotta remember to take it with you!

8  Beer tote in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by flyangler on: December 20, 2013 09:58:11 AM
I may be done crafting for this Christmas. I based this tote on one I found online and modified it according to what we had on hand for tools, scrap lumber and my skill level. http://thenewhobbyist.com/2012/11/making-a-wedding-wooden-beer-totes/#comments

I added a couple of bottle caps to the ends of the handle and will add more along the side rails. Unlike the craftsman I imitated, I cobbled this together with screws and glue, and didn't stain or sand it. My measurements were not precise, so a couple of bombers will fit on one end and four regular size bottles will fit next to them. I meant to do that. Wink

9  Beer Tasting Glasses and Tray in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by flyangler on: December 16, 2013 05:54:45 PM
I painted a wooden tray with chalk board paint and used etching creme and stencils to enumerate 8 glasses with the numbers 1-4. Now my handsome hubby will have a two flights of glasses for beer tastings. We can use chalk to write the names or styles of beer on the tray.

10  Re: Lighted Snowflake Lifts Gloom: added photos in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by flyangler on: December 15, 2013 06:55:50 PM

Ok, from top left to bottom right:
1. Raw materials including lights, white electrical tape and 4" drain cover
2. Drill, drill bit and silicone caulk- tools and adhesive arrayed on the table saw
3. Inside of the drain cover, showing the six handy dividers between which holes are drilled
4. With 6 holes drilled in the sides of the drain cover, pvc pipe arms can be glued in with caulk

Remaining steps: 
1. Space between the arms of the snowflake and the holes in the drain cover will be filled with caulk
2. Lights will be taped onto the arms with the white electrical tape
3. A CD will be glued, shiny side out, onto the front of the drain cover
4. One last small hole will be drilled in the top of one arm to hang the snowflake on the house
