Finished Objects: cricut koozie (super mario mushroom)

This was my first finished project with my cricut. I'm really happy with how it came out and I have learned so much. It is an wedding anniversary present for my very amazing husband :-)

 

  Notes: - I cleaned the surface with alcohol  - I used scotch tape for moving the design from the matt/backing to the surface. Perfect amount of stickiness  - etsy file -> https://www.etsy.com/listing/525736348/super-mario-dxf-super-mario-eps-mario-1?ga_search_query=mushroom&ref=shop_items_search_1    Materials I used: - Official Yeti Koozie thing (the best)! YETI Rambler Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Colster - This is the first time I've used this brand of vinyl (it is more permanent than crictu brand) and it was great! Ultimate Oracal 651 Starter Pack 63 Glossy Self Adhesive Vinyl Sheets (12" x 12", 63 Assortment)   Links: - I used this tutorial as a starting point: http://www.leapoffaithcrafting.com/applying-vinyl-to-a-tumbler/

Finished Object: Rainbow Blanket

My oldest little one is obsessed with rainbows, so I decided to make her a rainbow blanket for her toddler bed. Originally, I was going to make a simple pillowcase style blanket. After I got the most rainbowest fabric from Jo-Anne, I realized that the pattern would cause vertigo if not broken up some. so Then I just decided to do a simple window pane quilt. I am getting better at top stitching (still make a ton of mistakes).. but each quilt everything looks a little more polished.

She loved it and it warms my heart every time I tuck her in under it.

 

Finished Object: Reversible dress (whales and robots)

I sewed clothes for my youngest daughter and it did not suck! I have this issue where I can't seem to sew clothes very well. most other things.. sure... but clothes are super scary to me. It's totally a mental ("little voice of doubt in my head"). Anyway, I decided to try a class at Stitchlab (in Austin) http://www.stitchlab.biz/ and had the best time. The instructor was great and super patient. In the four hour class ("easy sewing for littles") I had a finished product that I was so damn proud of!

Here it is in all of it's whale and robots reversible goodness!

 

Finished Object: Nosferatu Mug rug... sort of

This started off as an idea for a mug rug, but during the implementation... it became a bit bigger. My sister still liked it but now it hangs on a wall :-)

the fabric is from spoonflower called "secret life of nosferatu" and i've used it for a tote bag design as well. it's pretty adorable. The embroidery design is “Death before Decaf” from urbanthreads.

I speed through the binding waayyy too quickly and made a ton of mistakes. I am happy with some of the fancy stitches I made though :-)
