11  Giant Ball-O-Yarn in Halloween Costumes by ilovepaper on: October 30, 2006 05:02:17 PM
It all started with a giant bouncy ball, plaster fabric stuff, newspaper, glue, cheap yarn and gobs of hot glue

Then I worked up some yarn hair.

We're not sure if the hair will make it for Halloween night, it kind of bugs her a little. The ball is surprisingly light and pretty flexible considering the plaster. I wish I had some daytime photos of it in action but these will have to do!

14  My "sewing is more fun than cleaning" pillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by ilovepaper on: October 03, 2006 12:40:25 PM
This is what happened while i supposed to be cleaning my craft room. First I found this embroidered square leftover from an old project and then I started sorting scraps and ..............
A 30 minute pillow that is far from perfect but pretty cute nonetheless.

I still need to finish cleaning  Undecided

This square will go into this quilt I'm working on:

I'm making 2 quilts for twin girls turning 8 in November. Horses are their passion, I think this will be perfect.

16  new cute quilt with a touch of grooviness in Quilting: Completed Projects by ilovepaper on: August 31, 2006 04:12:27 PM
Yay! I finished this quilt for my 6 year old daughter today. I ran into loads of problems and had to rearrange the entire thing in the end. I am pleased with it in spite of it's difficultness. It features Heather Ross fabrics (yummy!), embroidery patterns from patternbee.com, sublimestitching,weewonderfuls, vintage collection  and some of my own. The batting is cotton, the back is muslin and it measures around 45 inches square. The most important thing is that Julia LOVES it so much.  Grin
the photo was taken on stairs hence the wavy look.

20  Amy Butler+Sublime Stitching= Cute quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by ilovepaper on: July 17, 2006 05:45:08 PM
This is a quilt for my 11 year old daughter. She shares my love of fabric and all things crafty. She loves lime green and cats, which is where I got the inspiration for it. This has been a WIP for almost 2 years now but luckily (??) we are in the middle of a heatwave and I have a stomache bug so I was able to stitch non-stop for 2 days while enjoying the AC! It's a lap quilt about 48" x 48". She went away with her friend's family for a long weekend and hasn't seen it yet. I can't wait to see her face!

and some of the embroidery:
