21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My First Stencil! on: December 12, 2006 05:32:34 PM
This is my first attempt at stenciling.  I received a kit in a swap from shewilldieyoung and got some advice on the design from fellow craftsters in the discussion forum.

It's for my husband for Christmas.  It's an orc peon from the game, Warcraft.
22  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Help - not a great artist on: December 10, 2006 12:35:32 PM
I'm trying to come up with ideas of inexpensive gifts to give my husband for Christmas.  I've never done stenciling before, but I got a kit in a swap and decided to give it a go.  I got the idea to make him a t-shirt featuring a character from Warcraft - the computer game he plays online with his friends.  The problem is, that I couldn't find any suitable images, so I had to create one myself.  I'm not a very good artist and I'm doubting my skills, so I was wondering if I could get some opinions or tips.

I'm trying to create a stencil of an orc peon, seen here:

This is what I came up with:

I'm doubting that my husband would recognize it as an orc.  What do you think??
23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Drawstring Bag on: December 05, 2006 03:51:11 AM
I bought my son some wooden blocks for Christmas, but they came in disposable plastic packaging.  So, I made him this nice bag to keep them in.  The fabric came from my grandmother.  It was leftover from a dress she made me when I was a baby.

The flowers and the slug originally had buttons sewn on as embellishment, but I removed them (choking hazards) and replaced them with some non-life-threatening embroidery. This was my first drawstring bag and I made it up as I went along. It was a pretty simple process. The only snag I hit was that I didn't think that the blocks would take up much more space when not packaged (duh!). Thankfully, I made the bag much larger than I thought was necessary and it ended up being just the right size.
24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Chicken Towels on: November 27, 2006 08:01:19 PM
I made these for my grandmother for her birthday.  She loved them, but immediately pronounced them too nice to be used.  Does anyone else have this problem when crafting gifts for others?  It happens to me all the time!

25  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Tree Quilted Wall Hanging (complete w/ photos) on: November 15, 2006 07:42:42 PM
I made this folksy wall hanging for my aunt and uncle.  The buttons came from my grandmother's collection.  She has loads of them - some 50 years old!

It measures about 12" square.  The quilting, piecing and applique are all done by machine.

26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Another Tiny Embroidered Quilt on: November 13, 2006 09:41:29 AM
I am so loving the embroidery (I'm a total newbie)!!  This is a very small wall hanging: about 7.5" square.  I designed the pattern by totally ripping off Teen Girl Squad.  I love it very much Wink.

27  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Quilted Stocking Ornaments on: November 09, 2006 03:55:31 PM
I just designed these little guys.  4" high and totally functional.  I could fit a lip balm or two in them, if I knew how to make them Wink.  Anyway, I'm going to make heaps more in other fabric combinations.  I can give them to everyone I know!!

28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tiny Embroidered Quilt on: November 08, 2006 10:01:19 AM
I made this using the scrap squares leftover from some Jordy-type bags.    As you can see, my embroidery is severally limited by my drawing skills. This looks like something a five-year-old would draw.  I was able to practice some stitches, though, and use up some scraps at the same time.  I used split stitch, stem stitch, chain stitch and ye olde back stitch. 

29  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Ziggy Zag Baby Quilt on: October 04, 2006 12:56:09 PM
This baby quilt was inspired by my great-grandmother's crocheted blankets.  She loved the zig-zag.


30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bunnies as Party Favors on: October 02, 2006 03:12:12 AM
Saturday was my son's first birthday party and I made these bunnies as party favors for his little baby friends.  They're made out of felt and scrap cotton and have plastic in their ears to make them all crinkly and fun to play with.
