1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Baby's first tramp stamp? on: October 22, 2011 04:40:52 PM
Stitched up a pair of "Ruby's bloomers" from Heather Ross Weekend Sewing book and added a tattoo inspired bird to the back for baby's first tramp stamp.

2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Cutesy Crocs on: October 22, 2011 04:28:32 PM
Crocs - are they so ugly they're cute?  Or so ugly, they should be reserved for non-public wearing?
Slap a plaid ribbon bow and jewelry part on 'em and wear them loud and proud!

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Super easy cross stitch Christmas ornaments on: December 05, 2010 06:21:46 PM

Hello Cross Stitchers,
Made a whole mess of tree motif cross stitch ornaments with 2 pieces of aida cloth.  The reverse side is stitched with the year and receiver's name.
Using a running stitch and embroidery floss, the two pieces of fabric were sewn together.  Fiberfill was pushed into the "pillow" before the running stitch was knotted.
Take a look at the different edge treatments: fringed, pinked and blanket stitched.
They were super easy, super economical and super fast.  (Just like ______.) Wink

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Our animals have no faces! on: August 22, 2010 02:45:06 AM

Not quite as gruesome as the "Dumb and Dumber" situation of headless pets, my stitched doe a deer a female deer, her fawn, and its baby daddy Buck have no faces. 
What started out as laziness became quite desirable in its abstractness. 
And yes, you can remove iron-on transfer markings.
More detail on my blog entry Buck Face!

Lights! Lights!  Lights!  Yeah!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / What's up, home squirrel? on: May 06, 2010 01:26:15 PM

Traced a squirrel outline with Sulky transfer pen, ironed image to knit fabric, stitched with backstitch and added a beaded (beady) eye.  Trimmed fabric and machine sewed to baby onesie.
Check my blog entry for more detail.  (My photos exceed the craftster 2MB photo upload limit.)

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Don't wipe the dog with my tea towel! on: May 06, 2010 01:13:30 PM
I drew an outline of a Black Labrador Retriever on paper, traced it with Sulky transfer pen and ironed it on a cotton fabric.  Stitched the outline in backstitch and used the split stitch on green collar.  French knot eye.  Attached the fabric to tea towel with machine stitching and frayed the border.  The image was too bland so I shaded it with a color pencil then ironed it to set the color.

(You can see more detail on my blog entry because craftster's photo limitations won't allow my large file pics.) 

8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / A child-sized pool filled with beans - what to do with the beans? on: April 04, 2010 01:12:51 PM
My volunteer group will have a child-sized pool of beans at an activity fair but we hate to think of tossing the beans afterward so hoping you wonderful Craftsters will suggest some good ideas.
Considering small sewn bean-filled toss bags but not sure if they beans will decompose or be okay?
Please help us with some alternate uses!
Many thanks in advance!

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cat food bags upcycled to tote and messenger bags! on: March 24, 2010 09:50:02 AM

Wondered if the heavy cat food bags could be sewn in to totes like those juice bags.  Yep, it works!
The wallet above was cut and edged with bias tape.  Eeeeeee-Z!
Tote bag below is lined and has men's necktie recycled for strap.

The messenger bag is lined and includes a belt buckle to weigh down the flap plus a necktie strap. 

The vintage necktie was so broad that it could be folded over on itself to form a phone pocket.

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Ink stamp made of metal - whv can't I replicate a clear image? on: January 24, 2010 06:24:22 PM
Hello Craftsters!
I purchased a few vintage ink stamps at a flea market but instead of being the rubber stamps most crafters use, they are metal mounted on wood, perhaps used for printing?  When I use ink and stamp on paper, the image isn't clear no matter the type of ink.  Do printer stamps work as craft stamps or is machine pressure required?
Many thanks for your brainpower and consideration!
