It is interesting to see peoples different approaches to a big project like this. I tend to be a bit impulsive and will dive right in, rather than doing too much planning. I usually have some kind of an idea of what I am trying to get to, but definitely use the suck it and see approach. I am slightl envious of you more organised folk.

CLM the tailors tape is a good idea, but really the sweaters do stretch, but it is possible to keep them restrained. I like the final, stretchiness of the whole quilt, which is given by the fact that everything can stretch, it makes it nice and drapey, I wonder if the tailors tape would inhibit that too much?

craftADDchick, you have been busy! I love the onsies, my daughter is 22 now, but when she was a baby, she was dressed in tie die most of the time. All the other girl babies in the clinic were buried in frills, lace and ribbon, she rocked it in a tie died onsie and a bandanna. Yours bring back happy memories for me.

And your microwave bowl cosies are great. They are so neat, did you use interfacing? Said daughter has been nagging me to make a couple more as they are so useful .

So the mail is really letting me down. I just received an item that I had ordered for Wilma, ages and ages ago. But I will send it on as a little extra. I am really starting to get worried about the package that I sent, it should be there by now. Sad

Prompt: September fandom- anime
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points: swaptastic (this is for the ongoing wish swap, my partner has a bag similar to this on her pinterest board)
Project Name: Orange bag
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: This is a roomy bag made from lovely co-ordinating colours, orange is so nice to work on- on a grey Irish day. Inspired by Naruto who always wears orange

Prompt: November Convention O clock
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: chocolate treats to take to a convention, they will give lots of energy during the day, bonus, they are amazing! and simple to make.
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description. You simply melt chocolate in a microwave, Simple, but you have to watch it like a hawk, Apparently if you melt half and then put half unmelted chips in and wait until they all melt smooth, Then it works to temper the chocolate, I tried this, but I don't think I got a great temper on the chocolate as it is not glossy enough. These are all in the quality of the ingredients. I used 70% cocoa solids chocolate (callebaud), really good roasted and salted cashews and good dried (unsweetned) cranberries.

once the choc is melted, put neat (ha ha!) teaspoons on baking parchment, then press gently in a few cashews and cranberries. I like to sprinkle some sea salt flakes over the top to ramp up the salt+sweet combo.

These are so so good, good to put in a pretty container wrapped in cellophane for a christmas present. These are not going to anyone else. I enjoyed a few in the bath with a lush bath bomb last  night- life is tough- Wink

*And, Im impressed with how well the detailed planet stamp showed up on the fabric. Do you apply your inks with a brayer? I know that if I tried to get enough ink on the stamp, Id have it in spots where I wouldnt want it.

*The boro bag is just gorgeous with the medley of fabrics and the wonderfully even stitching (did you draw lines first, because Id be extra impressed if you free-handed them!).
*Fantastic fabrics on the zipper pouch for the hair trimmer! And, do I spy some flamingo fabric on the inside? I know you have a fondness for them!

craftADDchick Aren't you the lovely human who takes the time to notice and comment on what people do. It is rare, thanks *hug*

In answer to your questions, Yes I do use a brayer for stamps. I do intend to do a tutorial actually, life has been a little busy lately!. I roll the ink out onto glass first and then pick it up on a brayer, otherwise it wouldn't give a nice even coat of ink.

The boro bag was all free handed, I am far too impulsive and reckless in my crafting to take time to set things out neatly!

Flamingos...of course Wink
