1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pearl Jam stickman quilt on: January 27, 2008 09:22:08 AM
I made this for my boyfriend for Christmas:

(it's not sparkly, the camera flash just makes it look so)

you can't really tell from the picture, but there's iron-ons of the band, mainly lead singer Eddie Vedder, along the top and bottom and along the sides are iron-ons of tickets from concerts he went to.

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / large applique question on: July 28, 2007 08:28:21 AM
i'm planning an Elmo quilt, the center of which will be a large (approx 30in x 30in) appliquéd Elmo.
I've never tried to appliqué something nearly that large before. Does anyone here have any experience with such?

I wonder would one appliqué technique would be better suited to such a large task than another (reverse appliqué?)? I've never machine appliquéd before, and i think this may be the perfect time to start.

also, as much as i hate to mix material, the only "Elmo-colored" fabric i could find was flannel (which is nice texturally), and the rest of the quilt will be your regular cotton - quilter - fabric.

am i setting myself up for disaster?

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / i made a froggie (my first completed craft!) on: March 14, 2007 08:33:08 AM
i used a pattern found in the forum

i used an old shirt for fabric

i think i should have stitched it by hand, but i'm too impatient
so to keep the stretchy fabric from getting caught in the sewing machine
i pinned Mr froggie to a piece of paper

i used buttons from the shirt for eyes and filled him with rice
now here's Mr. Froggie

he was easier to make than i thought
now i want to make more using different fabrics
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / seeking skirt recon advice (pics) on: March 11, 2007 03:33:17 PM
i have four old long skirts that i haven't worn in years and i haven't the heart to get rid of them.
each skirt is at least 30in long
two are 100% rayon
one is rayon/cotton
one is 100% cotton (and mostly transparent)

originally i was going to use them for quilting fabric, but i really don't want to cut them to little bits  Undecided

here's what they look like:


a couple of them would make cute dresses, probably
but i really wouldn't know where to begin
i don't know how to make clothes
