hey! i love that rug, i'm actually thinking of learning to crochet so i can make one for my new room!! do you know approximately how much fabric you used and how big it turned out??

and here is a picture of the disappearing knot i found in a 1978 book "Rugmaking" by Better Homes and Gardens that i "stole" from  my grandma  Wink :

there are also instructions for 2 other methods for joining the fabric invisibly.

pm me if you want a bigger picture to see better.  Smiley

5  Keeping Cool?? (Dogs) in Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions by smithyboy on: June 19, 2007 07:28:46 PM
I have a beautiful english bulldog, Princess, and she gets pretty hot in the summer.  She has a lot of extra skin so she has a lot of extra warmth too.  Any idea how to keep her cool? i've seen dog toys that you fill with water so when they chew on it it cools them but they are too expensive for me Undecided she does wear a collar all the time so maybe something that ways? i need ideas or she might melt!! (jk) Wink she doesn't mind wearing clothes either: here is a pic of her so you can see her extra neck fur and how cute she is!
 i mean, how big she is... Roll Eyes

thanks in advance,

6  Jack's Anywhere Rag Quilt {IMG heavy!} in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by smithyboy on: June 19, 2007 12:32:47 PM
Here is Jack's rag quilt. it is my second quilt ever! (definitely not my last!) I made this yesterday in about 6 ish hours.  The squares are quilted with an X in the middle and each of the triangles has a different quilted design on it that represents a different aspect of my cat! (that was fun!).....I like to think she likes it! She slept on it last night with no complaints!  Wink
here it is before washing:

and the center block before and after washing to show the difference:

my favorite pinwheel to show the quilting of it: (that's a paw, cat face, mouse, and fish bones)

and last but not least, her action shot! (she's a bit shy  Wink)

this shows the size  (about 30"x30") i had so much fun making this for her and quilting all the different triangles! comments and criticisms welcomed!

7  Animal Farm Quilt {IMG heavy!} in Quilting: Completed Projects by smithyboy on: June 19, 2007 12:01:05 PM
So here is my very first quilt.  I made it last year over Christmas break....yes, I know it's very wonky, but I truly had no idea what I was doing!  all the blocks are my design, i made them up as i went along.  it was made for a book report (which was supposed to be a poster, but being the craftster that I am I took it a little further Wink)  they are all characters from George Orwell's Animal Farm. enjoy:

from the top left: Snowball, Napoleon, Old Major, Muriel, Benjamin, Boxer, Clover and Mollie

Close up of pig's head:

Close-up of Goat's head: (my favorite block!)

Close-up of horse's head so you can see how the ears are attatched, kind of 3D  ish they flap around

and an obligatory action shot! (soo warm)

comments and criticisms welcomed!

Here is a punk rock tutu and a wee shirtdress i made for my baby! she's a two year old english bulldog, Princess, who is the light of my life!  let's start with the wee shirtdress! i bought a 10/12 girl's shirt, elasticized the waist (she is sooo trim Cheesy) and added some gathered lace before embroidering...enjoy!
best action shot i could get:

side detail:

skirt detail:

embroidery closeup:
it's my new kurt halsey pattern from sublime stitching's artist series! <3

and now for the punk rock tutu! i just measured her waist, cut some elastic that length, and cut 2 strips of pink netty fabric and 2 strips of black tulle.  they are 6, 7, 8, and 9 inches long....to give a layered effect.  i actually think she likes it!! she looks beyond adorable!
laid out:
