Mo' SkitzoLeezra foolishness!  Embroidered these teatowels with words that sound naughty.  Say "gladiator" and 'elixir" slowly and see if it makes you smile. 

Stitched the opposite side with Semicharm86's favorite motifs.  The tea towels have a private side and preacher side.

Hello All!  This is my first swap and hope the following meets with your approval. 
If not, go f*&^ yourselves.   Wink
My fabulous partner Semicharm86 indicated that her favorite naughty words were combinations so I began listing lots of lots of words, giggling all the while. Here is her naughty word combination book.  Each page is cut into thirds and she can peruse the many combinations plus add her own!

The next item inspired many curse word combinations.  Three, count 'em, three fabric collapsible boxes were embroidered upside down.  Put those aside and after a few days, decided that they were kinda funny.  My mom said they would make funny hats.
Sewed handles on the opposite side so Semicharm86 can decide which side she would like to display.
Will post other items soon.

45  Tissue cozies for days in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SkitzoLeezra on: May 08, 2008 02:29:17 PM
Think I found the instructions for these tissue cozies somewhere on this site and dang it all, it became an obsession.

The serged edges look nice but don't provide the crispest corners.  This one shown before turned right side out.

Hey ya!  Do you remember the Ant and the Aardvark cartoons from the Pink Panther series?  Well, here's a red ant I appliqued and embroidered onto my nephew's t-shirt.

47  New Look 6761 by Simplicity in Sewing Pattern Reviews by SkitzoLeezra on: March 19, 2008 11:33:39 AM

MY skill level - past beginner but not very experienced.

Made the tank top, shown on pattern in leopard print. 
Cut out pattern thinking that the length was too long but decided to cut and hem at last steps of sewing.   
Pattern instructions were fairly easy to follow.  I made the rookie mistake of not reading pattern for other items were required and missed seeing "bias tape" for underarm finishing.  Luckily I had enough fabric to cut my own matching bias tape.  It was a happy mistake because I love the way my bias tape coordinates with the fabric. 

The pattern did not address how to match back seam if using stripe fabric.  Guess they assume you would know how to that.  Here's how:  Cut one back panel from fabric.  Flip pattern over, printed side down and cut another.  My back center seam is matched with yellow on left and yellow on right of stitching. 

Am now making my second blouse from this pattern. 
Note:  you can use any width of ribbon, not just the narrow as specified.  Wider ribbon will wrinkle inside casing but will lay flat on your shoulder.  Also, ribbon can be tied at back center or on shoulder.

48  Re: TUTORIAL: Singlet Style Shopping Bag (like the plastic shopping bag) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SkitzoLeezra on: March 13, 2008 03:22:33 PM
Just found 3 cut out fabric patterns of the fabulous grocery store tote.  WooHoo, all I had to do was sit down and sew!

All have interior pocket. 
Used my brand new serger for bottom seam.

49  Re: As Is OR Modified Aunt Martha Stitchalong in Needlework: Stitchalongs by SkitzoLeezra on: March 13, 2008 12:29:27 PM
I always thought those Aunt Martha embroidery transfers were kinda lame until I found something other than those horrible bonnet girls.  Oh, how I hate me some Holly Hobby.  Anywho, kitties doing household tasks?  That's good stuff!
Stitched these days of the week felines (without the day text) onto t-shirts.

Sewed buttons where printed buttons were shown.

Grey stich did not show well on blue shirt so filled in with white.  Black worked better, as shown on green shirt.
