11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / new cute quilt with a touch of grooviness 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.

15  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Amy Butler+Sublime Stitching= Cute quilt! 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!

16  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My labor of love, my trial and (mostly) error... on: July 11, 2006 07:45:12 AM

...my lovely first finished quilt! It is 60x60 made from 144 5" squares of completely unmatching gorgeous fabrics that I got for around $6.00. I learned rather quickly that points are hard, hence the funky little pattern in the middle. It's mostly hand quilted although the outer 10" are done with my free-motion attachment. (what a disaster!)
I love it
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dotty the Chihuahua on: July 08, 2006 03:17:31 PM
I got this Japanese chihuahua pattern from a Flickr friend:

I'm pretty sure that she is blind; the beads I used for eyes give her a sightless look.  But she's cute anyway!
18  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Vintage bee pattern book cover on: June 10, 2006 02:02:42 PM
Every year I make scrapbooks (from the class) for my kid's teachers and this year one of the teachers colllects bee things (Miss B...get it?). I was so happy to be able to use my favorite transfer. I stitched on wool felt, found a bee fabric in my stash and cute ribbon and here's the cover:

I love stitching on wool felt, something about the thickness and how the stitches sink into it a bit, love it!
19  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / my cute little owl on: May 07, 2006 04:08:12 PM

This is my first try at amigurumi (well, it looks like amigurumi I think). My daughter named him Howell. It was very easy to make. I found the free pattern here:
20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / clothes-pin-cushions on: April 20, 2006 06:48:15 AM
(Not sure if this has been posted before or where it should go)
I saw this in a Japanese craft magazine that I just got (these magazines are full of amazing projects!) and decided to spend 10 minutes whipping a few up:

They are perfect for clipping on your WIP basket or tote bag, anywhere that you need to stick a few pins really.
All you need is:
  • clothespins (mine are a bit too long)
  • a small circle of fabric and a narrow strip of fabric
  • small wooden disks- I used slices of cork underneath 2 of the cushions and a mini wooden pot under the other
  • needle&thread
  • ribbon or trim
  • glue
  • polyfil stuffing
aren't they cute?
