11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Felt twinchie book cover on: January 01, 2018 08:25:02 AM
Thank you to everyone who sent me one of these little beauties in swaps last year. I used all but one.

I think it's about the cutest thing ever. The themes are woodland creatures, nature and weather, the top left square is a delicate and sparkly snowfall.

Sewing this was like making a vest, all inside out and folded over in a way you'd think would not work out in the end. I wish I could explain it to you a bit better but here are the photos of it finished and being turned right side out, perhaps it will make sense to you.

Here you can see the right sides, the black is the wrong side of the pocket (it's a heavy weight fusable interfacing I used for stability).

Sorry this shot's fuzzy but here it is only turned inside out.The pockets will get turned next. All the weird folding was to get the seam allowances between the correct layers.

With the pockets turned right side out. The gray fabric lining goes from edge to edge and will protect the stitches the twinchies are attached with, no friction if I replace the book etc.

And of course the pockets make actual pockets for holding loose papers.
12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Patchwork stocking on: December 30, 2017 04:56:24 PM
Made for Sharalee just because she's lovely and deserved something random and fun this December Smiley.

This was pieced together with so many bits of fabric sent to me from Craftsterers over the years. It's lined with a solid green and the toe stuffed with a bit of fluff to keep it's shape, there's a jingle bell stitched there to make a happy sound.

13  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A ridiculous amount of felt ornaments on: December 30, 2017 04:32:35 PM
I made a little something for all the participants in this year's secret santa swap. I was sick and stuck in the house for long enough that I started going a bit squirrelly and this really kept me sane, lol.
Here are all the felt ornaments based on people's themes, some wonderfully weird.

Maybe this ugly sweater is my favourite. Maybe...

14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Lavender "tea" on: December 30, 2017 03:57:51 PM
Sachets made for kittykill's secret santa gift this year. I used all scrap stash fabric and filled them with some beautiful flower buds from a local farm. They smell really fantastic. I will have to make more for myself, I love lavender Smiley.

15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Scrappy pieced greeting cards on: December 30, 2017 03:55:48 PM
There is way more stitching in these than anything else so I think they go here.

Made for this year's secret santa swap. I am clearly much more comfortable with fiber than paper so even when making card sets I end up using fabric, ha.

I cut up a skirt scored at the thrift shop for the tiny skaters, the rest of the holiday fabrics were sent to me in swaps here. It was such a great destash project. I actually make 9 of them but had packaged up one set at photo time.

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / So many little zipper pouches on: December 30, 2017 03:44:30 PM
I started with one for my daughter then made some for gifts.

This one reminds me of Haggrid's hut.

Cute little faerie tale cottage.

Triangle house for my DD. She took this on a little overnight today actually, with a crafting project in it of course!

Red Riding Hood and minecraft fabric for the kids for xmas.

One more RRH for kittykill's secret santa gift Smiley.
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Paper pieced snowman mug rug on: December 30, 2017 03:33:57 PM
Made for EdelC, I really like this tiny little guy. I'm so happy I am trying more paper piecing, it was a bit scary and confusing at first but now I really like it a lot.

I used AIMR's cheaty binding tutorial. . https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453148
18  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Prayer flags and a mug rug on: December 30, 2017 03:28:44 PM
Made for this year's secret santa swap. I sure was happy to see these items on a few people's wish lists as I love the flexibility and creativity you can use to make them. I employed Mistress Jennie's rainbow quilt as you go tutorial for 2 of the rainbow flags. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451720.0 and the mug rug and AIMR's cheaty binding tutorial for the mug rug. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453148
Thanks gals!

All that beautiful hand dyed rainbow fabric came to me in a swap here. I love this place so much.
19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Princess and the pea play tin on: December 30, 2017 03:10:45 PM
Made for this year's secret santa swap.

A wee little wool felt girl with several felt mattresses backed by different fabrics. The tin has 3 tiny green jems glued atop to look like peas. In some stories it's only one pea and it others it is 3 so I went with the grouping.

Here she is fruitlessly trying to get a good night's sleep.

She looks wide awake to me!

It all fits nicely in the tin for easy transport.

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crab stitch/reverse single crochet... on: December 30, 2017 11:28:52 AM
...or what the heck was I so scared of?
But I say that after every new crochet trick I learn, ha! Cheesy
It's a bit fiddly but it makes a very nice edge.
