1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / IT Crowd Hoopla on: February 18, 2018 02:01:13 PM
Ah, the wisdom of Roy.  I made this pattern  on PC stitch.  I used sparkly aida and some pretty variegated thread.  It's in a 6" hoop.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / At the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room on: February 14, 2018 05:40:39 PM
I started this pattern forever ago and finally got around to finishing it.  It was kind of boring with all the brown, which is why I stopped working on it.

I think my favorite part is the tiki guy playing the bongo.  Thanks for looking!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Zombie Pinup Purse on: February 11, 2018 12:10:54 PM
I found this fabric at Joann and loved it so much that I bought it without a project in mind.  Finally it hit me- a purse!

The lining and strap are polka dot.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / London Market Bag- Reusable Shopping Bag on: January 27, 2018 06:26:05 AM
My mom gave me a crap ton of fabric that I don't have room for so I'm trying to use it up.  She gave me some jelly rolls and I didn't know what to do with them so I looked at the Moda Bake Shop site for patterns.  I found this cute shopping bag pattern.  It was super easy to make and turned out really nicely.

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / All Boxed Up on: January 27, 2018 06:18:44 AM
I received this pattern and some charm packs in a Sew Sampler box.  I liked the pattern but wanted to put my own spin on the quilt.  The "charms" I used are actually jellyroll strips cut up.  It's roughly 46"x46".  I made the rookie mistake of matching up the edges of the squares instead of the seams so it doesn't match up very well in some spots.

On a good note, my corners actually turned out.

6   / CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Best Places to Sell Quilts? on: January 22, 2018 12:38:16 PM
I'm super into quilting right now.  It really helps with my depression and anxiety (as long as the sewing machine isn't being a jerk), but I have so dang many blankets already.  Seriously, they're everywhere. I really don't know that many people to give them as gifts, so I figured I could try to sell them.  I have an Etsy shop but there are so many sellers on Etsy that it's easy to get lost.  I will try craft fairs, but there aren't really any until Christmas.  If you sell your quilts where do you sell them?  How much should I charge?
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / 3D Perler Madness! on: January 13, 2018 07:13:16 AM
After doing some fun flat Perler stuff I started to see 3D Perlers pop up in my Pinterest feed.  Some crazy genius figured out how to make Disney Tsum Tsums from Perler beads!

The first ones I tried were the evil queen and Daisy Duck.

Then Tinkerbell

Not 3D, but magnets.

And a Mini Cooper for my husband.

Thanks for looking!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / More Spooky Shadow Boxes on: September 23, 2017 07:47:25 AM
After making a fun little house shadow box for the vintage Halloween swap, I decided I wanted one for myself.

The portrait is a lenticular sticker.  Also I made some more coffins because they're fun.

Thanks for looking!
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Perler Bead Oops on: September 18, 2017 07:37:24 AM
I thought it would be fun to try a big perler project.  I chose Meridia, Daedric Prince of Life.  I attempted to fuse the not-yet-finished design so I could remove the boards and use them for the remainder of the project.  Sadly, even though I was working on a flat surface, the boards were uneven and fusing didn't really work.  This is what I had before the mishap:

I lost most of her face and the whole right side.  Yeah.  As discouraged as I am, I'm seeing this darn thing through!  I'm going to try the "tape method" which seems like it could also end in disaster because I'm a huge klutz.  Also I'm still having doubts about the mouth.  Not sure which one looks better.
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Yeah, I totally needed a new hobby (Perler Beads) on: September 16, 2017 05:19:45 PM
I don't have enough hobbies already so I picked up Perler beads.  Here's what I've made so far.

My very favorite, a zombie ballroom dancer.  My husband thinks it's a mermaid.  What do you guys think?


Peppa and Halloween

Disney magnets

Poison Apple

Don't blink
