OK, pics are ready!

So I got this beautifully made little pouch

It's so cute, and I ALWAYS need these!

A cute keychain

I really needed one! (my cat likes it too)

the item that is ALMOST my favorite, adorable subway font stitch markers in a subway themed case!! Soooo cute!

and the item that IS TOTALLY my favorite, an awesome tshirt!

I'm trying to show with my hands how much I heart this shirt. Also, I was grinning, but decided not to subject you guys to my post-gym hair and creepy wild-eyed look. Wink It fits perfectly too, and the lines are so sharp!

Thank you again jesssf! And you are going to laugh so hard when you get my package. I won't say more so as not to ruin your surprise, but suffice it to say we have a little gift of the magi situation here. Wink

22  Photo wall display in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by EmilyFlew on: February 04, 2008 05:14:21 PM
I'm sure this has been done many times before, but I like how it turned out! I've just started getting into photography, and wanted a way to display and look at my photos that could easily be changed out and rearranged. Here's what I made!

It's made of clear vinyl on top of white satin, edged with satin ribbon. I measured and marked pockets for all of my photos and sewed the grid, then cut slits in the vinyl for each compartment to slip a photo in.

You can see the stitching slightly better in closeups:

I made compartments for horizontal and vertical photos, and for the square ones that my Diana makes. I'm hoping it will inspire me to keep taking more and more photos! Smiley

23  Flying Geese baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by EmilyFlew on: February 03, 2008 03:58:16 PM
I made this to welcome Francisco into the world, the adorable new baby of some good friends of mine.

It's a flying geese quilt in different shades of blue and turquoise. I liked the cheery colors! I followed a basic flying geese pattern and quilted stitch-in-the-ditch basically, except for the outer border which is radiating lines. I didn't quilt around each triangle, just up and down the green lines.  Much easier!

close up of my bad stitching:

I thought the backing fabric was so cute too:

I think Francisco likes it! Smiley

24  Cabled pillows! in Knitting: Completed Projects by EmilyFlew on: February 03, 2008 03:52:37 PM
I made these awhile ago and just now got pictures uploaded!

They're a basic rectagle of reverse stockinette, with four big cables running down it. They're made from bright red Patons Classic Wool Merino, doubled and knit on something kind of small, like size 8 needles, to make a dense fabric. I then used the sewing machine (carefully and slowly!) to attach the knit rectagle to a fabric backing:

I love them, they're so cozy to nap on! And they add a nice texture and lushness to the other fabric pillows on the couch. Smiley

26  Felt garlands with mistletoe and holly in Winter Holidays by EmilyFlew on: December 10, 2007 04:51:31 PM
I loved all of the garlands and felt Christmas objects that I've seen on Craftster this year, like

and was inspired to make these!

One says Happy Holidays with mistletoe between the letters, and the other says Merry Xmas, with holly. Closeups:

(that one was inspired by mistletoe present toppers in a Martha Stewart mag this month, I admit it!)

It was pretty easy--I cut the leaf shapes, and then sewed down the middle of each, sewing them onto a piece of ribbon in the process. I then sewed berries on top. For the letters, the circle was sewn onto the ribbon and then I sewed a felt letter to each circle.

I think they turned out cute! I was going to give one to my dad for Christmas, but I'm finding myself kind of attached to them both. Smiley

27  Re: Who did their own flowers? in Weddings and Bridal Showers by EmilyFlew on: October 28, 2007 08:21:19 AM
Those are pretty calla lillies!

I did my own flowers and in retrospect, may have been a little over ambitious. I ordered them online and we (well, mostly my mom and my aunt and cousins) made 10 centerpieces, bouquets for me and my 2 ladies, and around 10 bouts and corsages. I don't know how they did it, it was amazing. But yeah, looking back I should have done more simple arrangements or fake ones in advance or something. I think I almost killed my aunt.  Wink

29  Moderator wedding gift in Weddings and Bridal Showers by EmilyFlew on: September 26, 2007 08:14:22 PM
So, I asked the moderators to contribute something to my wedding this summer, and this is the beautiful object they made:

(I put it on a purple shawl so you can see the beautiful details)

I sent yarn to everyone and asked anyone who wanted to to knit or crochet a section that was 3 feet long and as wide as they wanted. Then I sewed all the sections together. Everyone used such different patterns and techniques, some people even added beads to match my wedding colors--I thought it turned out so beautifully!! It's such a special keepsake of the love I felt surrounded by on that day. Here's how we used it at the ceremony, on the table with the programs and everything:

30  Blue spectrum--sawtooth star quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by EmilyFlew on: September 23, 2007 08:13:29 PM
This is my first quilt in a long time, and my first quilt ever that wasn't a tied, blocky baby quilt!

It's a sawtooth star pattern, from "The Complete Guide to Quiltmaking" by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes (a great, great book--I had only the faintest clue what I was doing and this walked me through the entire process). Superstich helped me a ton also! It's in between a baby quilt size and a twin quilt size, because I was going to make it twin quilt size but I got tired of putting together blocks  Tongue, quilted around and inside the stars and in lines around the sides. I used this beautiful set of gradated blue fabrics that I got from my LFS, and used the scraps to make a gradated inner edging. It's backed by a pretty firework patterned fabric that matches the blues of the quilt.

It's a wedding present for a good friend of mine, and I'm giving it to her tomorrow--I hope she likes it! And I am totally into quilting now...I just started cutting pieces for a new baby quilt!
