Well, I had to buy yet another clicker for school! This one is for Physics class. So, I decided to make a clicker cozy for this one too. I got this cute fabric at spoonflower.com at this link: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/425256. I just love this cat with his glasses and sweater! :) He’s sure to help me get an A in Physics! haha! I wish! :)

Pink Piggy Pillow!

I had this cute fabric with pigs on it, and I was just itching to use it in some way, so I decided to make a pink piggy pillow. BTW, you can find this supercute pig fabric at Hawthorne Threads. Here is the link: http://www.hawthornethreads.com/fabric/designer/david_walker/get_together/pig_toss_in_pink. It looks much cuter in person and is super soft and comfy too! Anyway, I started out with the pig shape face and hand-stitched the pig. I added a little bit of fluff to the feet and ears and when I sewed the pig on the pillow I added a bit of fluff between the pillow and the pig face. I also put on the back pig butt and added some fluff in that too. And what piggy could be complete without a ribbon on his tail?!? I’m including some pics of the pig in process and the pics of the finished pillow. Click to enlarge. :)

Yes, this is definitely a strange picture. I just got the permanent gold crown put on my tooth today. If I ever run out of money I guess I could chip it off my tooth! lol My dentist did such a great job and even with all of the procedures, nothing hurt! How amazing is that?!? I know! It was awesome! :) The other blackish parts are where I have fillings. So sad that I had to ever get fillings. I wish my mouth was perfect, but oh well. :)

I just got my Earth Science fabric in the mail today that I made for the spoonflower.com Earth Science fabric contest. I like the way it turned out, but I don’t know what to use it for yet. I might make another pillow or try something more exciting. :) Here is a link to the fabric on spoonflower if you are interested: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1407354.

Donkey Elephant USA Fabric

2012, democrat, donkey, election, elephant, fabric, fabric design, Handmade, Kristin Bell, obama, red white and blue, republican, romney, sewing, sewn, spoonflower, United States, US Government, US Politics, USA

I made this fabric for another contest over at spoonflower.com . For this contest, we were supposed to use the donkey and the elephant and incorporate them in a way where they were kind of getting along (much the opposite of reality unfortunately)! I wanted the middle stripes to be purple as a symbol of the combining of blue and red, but it sort of turned out more blue that I’d hoped. I also wanted the donkey and elephant to look like they were talking to each other. If you want to check out the fabric, it is available at this link: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1406600

So, I took my typewriter fabric and made a pillow out of it. I like it a lot! It took a lot of stuffing to fill it, but it is super comfy now! :) The back has black and white polka dot fleece that is available from Joann Fabrics (http://joann.com). The front is made from the fabric I designed. If you’d like to get your own fabric with this design, just check it out at: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1399770. I messed up a bit on closing up the hole where I stuffed it, but it is okay. :) Yay! Click the pics to enlarge. :)

Stripey Black and White Typewriter Fabric

I made this stripey black and white typewriter fabric for the weekly design contest at Spoonflower.com. If you want to sign up with spoonflower and vote for me, that would be great! Anyway, they have a different contest pretty much every week. This week it was using black and white with the theme of typewriters. I ordered the fat quarter of the fabric and got it in the mail today. I haven’t ironed it yet, but the pic is what the fat quarter looks like! I think I’m going to make a big pillow out of it. I love designing different fabrics and seeing them printed! It is so exciting! :) Oh, I forgot…here is a link to the fabric: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1399770
