Great projects, AIMR! The heart is so cool! It's so fun to make things for kids to get creative with.

I finished fixing the Shirt We Don't Taco 'Bout for The ManFlesh today! Replacing the burnt button placket and adding the patch went quicker and easier than I expected. What a nice change of pace that was!   Roll Eyes

2  The Shirt We Don't Taco 'Bout Rises From the Ashes in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TheMistressT on: February 17, 2018 03:20:55 PM
In December, I sewed a ridiculous flannel taco shirt for The ManFlesh for xmas. Then in February he caught in on fire! While he was wearing it! Luckily, the shirt was the only thing harmed... not even the shirt he was wearing under it.

Well, it was practically brand new and dang if it didn't take for ever to make in the first place, so I decided to patch it. And not just any patch... a taco rising from the ashes patch! Well, from the flames that create ashes anyway.

I also had to replace part of the button placket... not super well, but it should hold and does its job.  Roll Eyes

AIMR: All your sewing things are so well made and gorgeous! Well, the hat, too, but I don't know what I'm looking at when it comes to knit or crochet.  Roll Eyes

Tendstowardschaos: Those bears don't look whipped up or last minute at all! I bet your boys love 'em!

SheepBlue! What a great package! That bag cracks me up!

The taco patch and shirt might end up being infamous! I'm working to get it done for him to take to Emerald City Comic Con at the end of the month where he'll be hanging out with some of his author friends at their publisher's booth, etc. I feel lucky that he is a man who will enthusiastically wear ridiculous things!

Annnnd, I made this roman shade for the guest room window using mostly stash! Just got it installed today. I'll be making a matching, smaller one for the window in the balcony door here in the next week or two (hopefully).

When I get better photos and finish the other one, it will get it's own topic, because that sumb!tch was a PITA!

AIMR: I'm glad you found a home for your partially finished blanket. I'm sure someone in the nursing home will really appreciate it. Your pet blankets will be loved, too!

CLM: You are so dang productive! And it's all so dang cheery! WOO!

cmarion: That sounds like a lot to me, too!

I made this Roman shade using almost all stash! All I bought was thread, interfacing and the yarn for the pompons. I had the flannel front fabric left from making the duvet set that goes in that room, the blackout fabric is from a bunch that I got for free about 6 years ago, and I had all the shade hardware (rings, eyebolts, cording, cleat), too!

I even found something to use as a cord pull in my stash: this little bowler hat! It comes on Broker's brand London Dry Gin and I have, ahem, a few of them.

I have enough of all these things to make a smaller, matching shade for the window in the balcony door, too.

The ManFlesh burnt a hole in his Shirt We Don't Taco 'Bout.

I finished assembling a patch for it today.

Since I have to also fix damage on the button placket, I haven't yet applied the patch. Hopefully later this week!

6  Flaming Taco Applique Patch (a buffet of pics) in Completed Projects by TheMistressT on: February 13, 2018 12:54:52 PM

Well. I sewed The Shirt We Don't Taco 'Bout for The ManFlesh for xmas and he promptly caught it/himself on fire a couple weeks ago! He was not hurt and nothing other than the shirt was damaged. But DAGNABIT that shirt took for-dang-ever to make and it was practically brand new!

So I decided I would try to patch it and I decided that using the same material would make for an obvious patch so I might as well make it look like a design choice and if it was going to be a design choice it might as well be kind of funny.

I will have to replace the lower part of the button placket, so I will sew the left side under the new one and used the flaming taco to cover the hole and discolored taco print fabric. As you can see there are A LOT of layers in some parts of the patch, so I cut away as much as I could to make it mostly only one layer thick and it kind of makes the back look really cool!

cmarion3! Your crafts and your stash organizing are amazing! Fantastic work!

Well. The ManFlesh set his shirt on fire on Saturday, and since it was a Christmas gift that I spent AGES making, I want to patch it instead of trash it. I don't have much of that material left AND I think using the same material will still leave an obvious patch, so I have a plan to turn it into a "feature." Sadly, my plan required several colors of flannel. Like 8, I think. Luckily it was on sale at JoAnn and most importantly, I refrained from buying "extra just to have since it's on sale." 1/4 yard each should be plenty.

He was wearing it, but was completely unhurt. Even the shirt he was wearing under it was undamaged. Nothing else was damaged, either. WHEW!

You know when life gives you a project you weren't planning on? I got one of those, just before I even got out of bed this morning. The ManFlesh managed to catch his Shirt We Don't Taco 'Bout on fire while wearing it! But damnit, that thing took forever to make and it's still new! So I'm plotting my patching. Didn't quite miss the button placket which complicates things. Sigh. No harm to anyone or anything other than the shirt, though, so not entirely unlucky.

9  Taco 'Bout Awesome Underpants! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: February 01, 2018 02:06:10 PM

When I spotted this flannel at 40% off I knew it had to be mine! Well, I knew it had to be underpants for The ManFlesh.

I'll be semi-sneaking them into his luggage when he goes to Emerald City ComiCon next month with a card I picked up. I made this little bag to put it in. This fabric is a reference to his first novel which was published about a year ago and his books are why he's going to the con. Wink

In the last few days I've had occasion to make 3 more little bags.

1. This pre-cut and pre-marked, yet unsewn bag was found behind my sewing chair, so my count for the giant destash is an even 80!

2. I needed 15 mins of creativity for a daily-do project I'm participating in, so I made this one to use for a future project that I'll be making for The ManFlesh in the next couple-few weeks.

3. The ManFlesh is working on his Deranged Mountain Hobo beard for a con he's attending in about a month and ordered up some longer guards for his beard trimmer. They needed a way to stored and I knew this Burly Beavers print was just the ticket!
