1  Re: Hexi-Puffs Mini Skeins *GALLERY* in The Swap Gallery by Jessiesmudge on: April 01, 2012 03:50:14 PM
Ok, finally got myself and my camera together.  I have some lovely yarns to show off from two of my partners.

These came from pugwash!  So pretty.   Grin  She tells me that a couple of the yarns are locally dyed.  Very cool!

The next set comes from loudxmouse!   Cheesy Also so pretty!  She added little tags on each miniskein telling me what yarn it was.  What a good idea.  Wish I had thought of it.

I finally dug out my hexipuff project bag.  It's covered in cat fur, which is very appropriate for "Katster!"  I'm actually hoping to work on them.  It's so nice to have a small project that you can finish and feel like you accomplish something.  I knit socks, mostly and the just take so long.  I have about 5 pairs started, that I can think of (and there may be more)  I should just sit down and work on one project!  Oh well.  I'm the same way with quilting.  I have tons of quilting projects started as well.

If anyone is interested, I made myself a little hexipuff bag, complete with tutorial and knitting sheep fabric!  There are some things I would change.  You can see it on my blog.  If I shouldn't have posted something about my blog here, sorry.  I don't mean to step on toes or whatever.  Just wanted to share. http://www.somecraftygoodness.blogspot.com/2012/03/hexipuff-bag-tutorial.html

Woot, looks like I get to be the first person to post pics here.

I got my mug rug from ironic a couple of days ago and have finally taken pics. 

Here is the front:

The black cats are cute and remind me of my beast!  Smiley

The back:

Ironic also included some yummy selection of chai tea! I LOVE chai tea!  Thanks so much!

Mug rug swap was fun.  They are fun and addicting to make!  Grin

Yay!  I finally took photos!

Here's a pic of everything all together!

What a lovely mug rug muddy21 made!  I adore the colors!

And check out the awesome batik back!

And she made these awesome christmas ornaments!  They are so adorable and creative!  I've been trying to figure out how she did it!  Each ornament has a different cute button on the front and another on the back.  Woops, totally forgot to take pics of the back.  I have these ornaments hanging  all over my apartment.  It's the first xmas decorations to go up this year!

We also decided to send local items typical to where we live.  Muddy21 sent me a cute notebook from where she works along with a bookmark (and I always need bookmarks).  She also included postcards showing me where she works.  And to top it off some yummy maple candy!

Love everything!  Thanks so much muddy21.  You did an awesome job.

4  Needle Roll Awesomeness in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Jessiesmudge on: August 03, 2010 04:13:44 PM
I'm not sure that this is the correct place to post this.
I've had the fabric for this project for a really long time and finally made it.
I finished a new needle roll last night and wanted to share.

Here is the outside

Here is the inside.  there are three different layers of needle slots.

Here's the inside with the flap down

Here it is with needles in it. 

Rolled up.  The ribbon is long enough to wrap around twice so it's extra secure.

Pic of the top so you can see how the flap keeps all the needles from falling out.

What do you think?

5  Zipper Pouches in Get Product and Website Opinions by Jessiesmudge on: July 25, 2010 09:46:17 PM
I've been a crazy seamstress the past few weeks.  I've been unemployed for over a year.  I've been doing tons of crafting to help fill up my time so I don't mope and do nothing all day.  I've decided to try to sell some of the things that I make.  I'm trying to get an etsy shop going, but I'm still figuring out all the ins and outs.  I'm going to see how things go at an upcoming local indie craft fair.  So I decided on zipper pouches.  I think they've turned out okay.

Some close ups of a few individual ones:



I found a cool way to make my own product labels http://patchworkpottery.blogspot.com/2008/09/fabric-labels-tutorial.html.

I received my package from Keogan yesterday and I was so excited.   When I opened it up this is what I found

That would be my cat, Smudge, lurking on the side.  He likes to help open packages.  Inside there was beautiful jewelry!!  I found these amazing bracelets:

which I put on  Grin

Then found another beautiful bracelet.  I love the colors. (sorry the pic is a little blurry)

And I thought I was all done and then I found yet another amazing piece of jewelry that is so delicate and pretty.  Keogan used the tiniest beads and I'm impressed because I think those little beads would drive me nuts, but the result is stunning. (again, pics not that great)

And of course, my cat loved the crepe paper everything was packaged in.

thank you so much for all the your hard and beautiful work.  I love every piece you made.

7  Birthday Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Jessiesmudge on: June 06, 2010 06:39:19 PM
I made this for myself for my birthday.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out so I'd thought I'd share.

I haven't posted for a long time so I hope the picture works out.

8  Homemade Taggie--Take 2! in Quilting: Completed Projects by Jessiesmudge on: January 03, 2008 01:15:06 PM
I made another taggie!  This time it's for one of my students who is having a girl (she's due on the 8th).  I just hope this one is girly enough.  I found this embellished fleece at Joanns and figured it'd be good for a girl.  I was going to use the butterfly with a green background, but discovered after I washed the fabric that part was coming unstitched.  I didn't have the right thread to fix it so just decided to use the butter fly with the blue background.  Check it out!

And with the back showing.

The perfectionist in me really wants to straighten out a couple of the tags that are crooked.  Not exactly sure how that happened when I sewed it.  But I'm making myself leave it.  I need to start writing some lesson plans since my winter break is almost over !!  Sad  I could use some more time!

My first post on the taggies can be found at

9  Homemade Taggie in Quilting: Completed Projects by Jessiesmudge on: December 30, 2007 03:52:24 PM
Not sure this is the right place to put it, but here it is.

About two months ago I got a job teaching science at an alternative high school.  In addition to teaching science, the school is having me teach the young parents class where I have pregnant and parenting teens.  Quite a shock for someone who isn't a parent!!  I have two students who are having their babies really soon, in fact one of them probably already gave birth, and I wanted to get them of baby gift.  In a world with many extra hours in the day I would have liked to make them all baby quilts, but seeing as how that's not humanly possible I decided to make them something smaller, easier, and cheaper.  I decided to make them homemade taggies.  I copied the idea from the actual product, but I like the fact that I got to make it.  It's more special that way.  :-)

Let me know what you think.

10  Valentine's Day Inspired Quilt......and a break from grad school in Quilting: Completed Projects by Jessiesmudge on: March 27, 2007 12:42:48 PM
I started this little quilt around Valentine's Day.  I'm not a huge fan of the holiday, but I liked the look of this quilt.  I found it athttp://www.rainydays.com.au/jfb.htm

Here's my rendition.  I don't have a cool hanger yet to display it on.  My mom helped me make button holes on the tabs so I can put it on a neat hanger if I eventually find one.  I'm still new at this adding photos thing.  I hope this works.

Here's a close up on some of the embroidery
