1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt of Eternal Shedding on: April 23, 2018 05:22:21 AM
I wanted an easy project.  I wanted to try something with minky.  I found a tutorial on Pinterest for a minky rag quilt.  Overall it was easy to make and I did it over the weekend.  But that thing shedded like there was no tomorrow.  There's minky shed all over- the floor, my sewing table, my sewing machine, the couch, my clothes.  You should have seen the lint trap after I washed and dried it!  But it's super soft and it's a more grown-up look with the colors I chose.

The back

Do I love it?  Yes.  Would I make another one?  Heck no.  Thanks for looking!

I needed something to do with a charm pack I had and found this neat pattern.  I found an amazing cheat for binding and it turned out pretty well.

Thanks for looking!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Magic Embroidery Pen on: April 12, 2018 05:21:20 AM
I saw an ad for a "Magic Embroidery Pen" come up in my Instagram feed.  It's basically a punch needle but I got sucked in and ordered one because it's "magic."  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077CXGJMK/ref=asc_df_B077CXGJMK5436935/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=395033&creativeASIN=B077CXGJMK&linkCode=df0&hvadid=230750746070&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16962873804943846387&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9028880&hvtargid=pla-386668516761

Has anyone done embroidery with a punch needle?  Just wondering what to expect since it's taking for dang ever to get here.
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Glam Cat Mini Quilt (plus bonus mini quilt) on: April 04, 2018 05:35:41 AM
I like quilting, but it's hard to work with bigger stuff because of how my sewing machine is set up.  Looking at Pinterest I kept seeing mini quilts so I thought I'd try some.

Here's my glam cat mini quilt.  It's about 12x10.5.

I finally found a binding tutorial that doesn't suck so it actually turned out!

This is the first one I tried.  It's made from a fat 1/8th bundle my mom gave me.  This one is 9x12.

Thanks for looking!

The makeup bag was made using a tutorial from "Dog Under My Desk" and the wallet is Lazy Girl Designs "Wonder Wallet."

These are a lot of fun to make and work up pretty quickly.  Thanks for looking!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hatchimals Bracelets on: March 30, 2018 05:31:02 AM
I am obsessed with Hatchimals Colleggtables.  I just got a bunch for my (34th) birthday.  I noticed some of them have holes and my crafty brain "hatched" an idea- bracelets!

Bunwee and Cheetree.

Here's one with Sandsnake.

Thanks for looking!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fun Bags on: March 25, 2018 05:04:42 PM
I felt like sewing this weekend so I made some bags.

This one is made from jelly roll strips.  Also my cat decided she wanted to be in the picture.

My mom sent me a bunch of fabric and this was a fat quarter pack.  Not long enough to make jelly roll strips so I just made some strips and sewed them together.

I found some cute buttons.  Also my seams match up perfectly!

Thanks for looking!
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tiny Cross Stitch on: March 18, 2018 02:43:10 PM
This month's hoopla along got me obsessed with tiny cross stitch.  It's super fun!

Cameo necklace.  Hoop is about 2" in diameter.

Disney villain necklace.  Its about 1.5"

Girl with a pearl earring.  I forgot to measure this, but I think the stitched part is a little over 1"

And here's an Ursula one that I'm not sure what to do with.

Thanks for looking!
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I Was Named for St. Augustan... on: March 14, 2018 06:37:15 PM
...who coined my favorite phrase.  "Give me chastity and give me constancy, but do not give it yet."

I love Val Kilmer.  I love the old Roger Moore TV show "The Saint" (even if it is super corny).  I made the little logo from the TV show (appears in the movie as a pin) because I've always thought it was super cute.  This is for the hoopla along so it's in a 3" hoop. I stitched it on a little piece of sparkly aida that I had leftover from another project.

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dragon Age Inspired Hoopla on: March 10, 2018 01:14:44 PM
I made this hoop with Cassandra from the video game "Dragon Age Inquisition" in mind (if you play with the dialog text active you see this phrase pretty often).
