1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Safe Rotary Tools? on: August 06, 2017 07:05:52 AM
Yesterday I cut off a good chunk of my finger with a rotary cutter.  Had to go to the ER and get the chunk of skin sewn back on with 11 stitches.

Now I don't want to give up my rotary cutter because I can't cut in a straight line with scissors.  But I feel like I need some klutz-proof supplies.  Does anyone have suggestions?

I'm just a crazy sewing fool.


Why yes, I do plan on using this all year round.

Also this.

Thanks for looking!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Newspaper Purse on: July 24, 2017 05:46:50 AM
I found this pattern at Joann.  It's a Lazy Girl design, and I love their patterns because they're super easy.  It's about 7" by 9" and has a pocket in the back.

Thanks for looking!
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Thank You For Being a Friend- Golden Girls Hoopla on: July 22, 2017 06:21:31 PM
Here's a hoop with everyone's favorite sweet old ladies.  Stitched on pink 14 count aida and fits in a 5" hoop.

This was fun to make and stitched up quickly.  Thanks for looking!
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Friendship Bracelet Quilt on: May 26, 2017 07:42:40 PM
After having moderate success with the table runner I made from a "Sew Sampler" box, I decided to try something bigger from jelly rolls that came in another box.  This is the largest quilted thing I've ever made and even though it's a little puckered in places I'm still pretty proud of it.  Finished size is about 38" x 50".  The cat has already claimed it and it's covered in cat hair. 

A picture before it had binding

I did a pretty simple quilting pattern- basically stitch in the ditch.

During this experience I've discovered that while I like quilting, I hate binding.  In spite of that I'm already working on my second quilt.  Thanks for looking!

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Big Honkin' Ring on: May 26, 2017 07:28:08 PM
I found this kit at JoAnn.  I used one of the patterns it came with because I was too lazy to make my own like I usually do for stuff like this.  The finished ring is a little thick, but it still looks pretty cool.

Thanks for looking!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Lots of wallets on: May 03, 2017 05:46:05 PM
My mom gave me a bunch of patterns and fabric so I thought I'd try the patterns.  Here are some of them.

Grumpy cat wallet

Super Girl wallet

It has a coin pouch inside

And this one I found a tutorial online for.  It's a credit card wallet.

Thanks for looking!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Is it a Clutch or a Game Case? on: April 26, 2017 07:00:25 PM
...it's both!  I made these bags that can either be a clutch or a handy case for Nintendo Switch.

Here's a cute Legend of Zelda one

And a kickin' Super Heroine one.

I made them from my own design, it was kind of a trial-and-error thing.  Thanks for looking!
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Alice in Wonderland Table Runner on: April 24, 2017 05:49:54 AM
My mom signed me up for a monthly sew sampler box and it has mostly quilting stuff. I haven't quilted for a long time and even then it was small wall quilts and mostly appliqu or paper piecing.  So I figured what the heck, I'll give this table runner pattern a try.  The original pattern is huge, probably for a proper dining room table, but I just needed one for my coffee table.

I goofed a little on the binding but I'm happy with how it turned out.  Thanks for looking!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / You were fantastic- 9th Doctor Cross Stitch on: January 26, 2017 04:45:00 PM
I love the 9th Doctor. I wish he would've been on for more seasons. I found this pattern on Etsy, and it's the Doctor made out of a quote. It says "you were fantastic, absolutely fantastic. And you know what? So was I."

He's about 14" high and was really fun to stitch.
