1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Jo-ann's quilt kit on: June 14, 2006 07:44:56 PM

I get my nails done every 2 weeks and the girl who's always done them got "knocked up" (to use HER term). Anyway, She's due in July and said she was doing her daughter's room in pink, teddybears, and ballet.

I hopped over to jo-ann's looking for inspiration and came across a kit of pre-matched fabrics, similar to this package:

Anyway, I decided this afternoon (my first REAL day off work for the summer...at least until summer school starts Friday) I was going to tackle it. In less than 3 hours from start of cutting fabric to tying of yarn I was done! I only quilted around the fuzzy border and used yarn at the seams of each different fabric.

This is the second quilt I've ever completed, the other is found somewhere in the recesses of this forum.

Thanks for taking a look!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ribbon Belts galore! on: April 24, 2005 01:56:16 PM
Hey folks! I got tired of seeing ribbon belts for 10-20 bucks that I could make myself for 4-5 bucks.

So here they are!  All ribbons are from JoAnn's or Hancock and the D rings are from both places as well. (Dritz 1", set of 4 per package for 1.50)

Instead of killing myself with a sewing machine, I used that iron on fusible stuff in between and just sewed on the D rings and finished the ends with the machine. The only exception is the flower one. for the end of that one, I melted the end to keep it from fraying with a lighter and cut out a flower from the pink to put on the end.  Each one is two-sided and completely reversible, though the backs of all of them are plain grosgrain.  Some of the patterns (the horizontal striped ones) are grosgrain too, but the flowers and plaid aren't, they're just regular ribbon.

Questions? Comments?

Also, while I was on spring break at a Hallmark they were selling ribbon watches-you pick out the face and then the ribbon bands you want to go with it. The bands were 7 bucks each...I bought two at the time, but instead of blowing wads of cash on more, I made ribbon bands to match my belts...so now I'm all coordinated and junk.

I've had more trouble finding polka dot grosgrain if anyone has any ideas...
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first (from a pattern) Quilt! on: January 22, 2005 09:33:59 PM
Well, I made this last summer but I'm just now realizing I never posted it and wanted some feedback.  I sang at my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's wedding and as a gift they gave me a gift cert to a local quilt shop. I bought the fabric and the book and decided to dive right in.

I worked for 3 days, 13 hours each day...plus a bit before that to do some of the fabric cutting.

What do you think?? It's machine quilted with loops, squiggles, and stars.

Here it is!  Hanging from my  mantle. Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fleece Winter Hats! on: December 29, 2004 07:17:22 PM
Hey guys! I work at a school where most of our students can't afford hats so I took a weekend and came up with patterns for some fleece hats. Some of the patterns were modifications of some I found online. Enjoy!


Sorry the pictures have a bad color to them. As you can tell by the Packers hat, I'm in Wisconsin Smiley  Also, sorry for putting so many pics up but they're all photographed seperately.

What do you think? I made 42 hats for 30 bucks with remnants from Hancock's.
