1  Slowly Pimping My Car! in Completed Projects by Gwno on: January 03, 2011 02:56:22 PM
My car is in desperate need of tidying and re-upholstering - the inside hasn't been touched for nearly 40 years!
The drivers seat was ripped up and all the padding had sunk completely so whats a girl to do? In other words, what's a crafty girl to do? Give you two guesses...

So I spent a few hours sewing and crocheting my new car seat cover.  Its in situ for now, all I need to do is replace some of the padding in the seat, tape it up and secure the bottom panels somehow Im thinking gluegun

The main fabric is upholstery corduroy that I received from a Freecycler.

I used some of the brown cord for the tree branch applique then used this http://mycrochetstuff.blogspot.com/2008/05/little-flowers-with-leaves-free-crochet.htmlpattern (minus leaves) to crochet the blossoms.

For the back and sides I used a faux suede fabric that was given to me by a friend. When I first made the top of the seat it didnt quite fit so I cut and seamed a triangle out the back, sewed tiny buttonholes with my machine and used shoelaces for a corset effect!

I need to make some adjustments still but I'm really happy with the outcome  Grin

2  Mummy Bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Gwno on: October 23, 2010 08:18:22 AM

Here's my mummy bag  Cheesy I'm very happy with it, even though it took forever to figure it out and my fingers have many, many pinholes in them!
It's my own pattern and I'm still in utter shock that it turned out as good as it did!

I can't upload the other images I have as they're too big and don't have a chance right now to resize them so please visit my new little blog if you want to see more, sorry about that!

Sorry, I've taken this project off my blog during a re-vamp!

3  My new nappy/diaper bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Gwno on: March 20, 2010 02:15:01 AM
I'm so happy with this bag, it's so cute!
I got the tutorial from here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38622.0

It's made from old clothes and were given to me for cutting up.

I can't wait to start using it!

4  Freestyle cross-stitch! (*!SWEARING!*) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Gwno on: November 12, 2006 08:42:26 AM
I heard about subversive cross-stitch and wanted to have a go, I didn't realise that one phrase was used as a kit... hence mine looking different!
I've never done this before so sorry if anyone is offended by it

And this is a bag I made for my sister. She's just started her first teaching job as an art teacher and it's her birthday at the end of the month.

Thanks for looking  Grin

Aw jloveg! Keep trying, you'll get it. Wink

Janeausten, they are both really good  Grin

I made a few more, five little ones to be exact but in the pic you'll only see 4 (and gigantic elephant) because my darling kitties ran off with my coolest batik one and I can't find it anywhere now!
Also, remind me to put everything crafty out of kitties way, one of them - Poppy, decided to eat 2 inches of embroidery thread!  Lips sealed Crazy cats!

Hmmm, shut up Sara! Here's the pic...

I hope it's ok to show you lot my pincushion?
Before my new one, I'll show you my first one, it's the first thing I ever sewed and it's looking a bit worse for wear!!

And here's my new one -
Gigantic Elephant Pincushion Shall Never Be Lost Or Forgotten!!

Huge thanks to Fidget for the slip stitch tute, I really needed it!

Only problem... I wanna make more! Plus that awesome button is one of many more buttons that my fabulous sister gave me for my b/day, yay!

We have 15 kitties living with us, 7 are adults and 8 are 5 - 6 months old. My husband built an enclosure over a week. It's at the end of the garden and stands at about 5 feet tall. He made a door so we can get in and out and there are shelves and a scratching post inside. The back is made from planks of wood, then there are a couple of posts and chicken wire in between. He also put a roof on it because it tends to rain for most of the year here!
Leading from their little 'shed' is a square tunnel right up to the back door, it has a little door on it as well so it's easy for us to get them in and out. The tunnel has a wooden frame just like a long cube and is also enclosed in chicken wire.
We've got a little bit of a yard so we're thinking of expanding the run - making an 8 feet enclosure by the back door. Basically, there'd be a catflap in the back door, we would open back door straight in to enclosure then there'd be another door or gate for us to go into the garden. It's really hard to describe, I'm sorry if it's not very clear!
Here's a photo of the inside, that's all I seem to have right now I'm afraid  Smiley

8  Forget blues and pinks! Multicolour psychedelic babyquilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by Gwno on: October 17, 2006 02:58:12 AM
It was our 2nd anniversary yesterday but hubby is bunged up with a cold so we didn't do anything. Instead I spent the day making this psychedelic babyquilt! It's the first quilt I've ever made and I'm rather proud, machine stitched in the ditch and used an old thick-ish curtain for the batting. It's far from perfect but I like it!
I'm not pregnant - YET so this will be put away for the (hopefully not too far) future.

Thanks for looking, feedback is totally appreciated but don't feel pressured!!  Grin Wink Grin
