No-Sew Braided Fleece Throw - Cheer

 I made this for myself!  Something that hardly ever happens!

It's nice to cuddle up in at those chilly Fall Football games!!


 Close up view:


The Braided Edge tutorial can be found here:

Double Layered No-Sew "Braided" Fleece Blanket Tutorial

The fringe strips around the edge are 1.5 inches long, and 1 inch wide.  Instead of cutting a slit in the ends of the fringe strips, I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes, so they would be more uniform.

In The Hoop Zipper Bag

I made this as a Christmas gift for Lilly.  A little late posting.

The straps weren't in the project, but thanks to ALOT of help from the crafty people on SewForum,  I was able to add them.

I made it long enough for it to be a Cross-Body bag.  It is perfect size for her phone.

Coffee To Go Flip It Card

I made this for a good friend of mine for her Birthday.




I adapted the Silhouette version of the Basic Flip Card design, merged it with the Silhouette Coffee Cup to Go Design to make a To Go Cup Flip card.  This one does not technically "swing" because the gift card was a little wider than the coffee cup, so it just flips.

The Sentiment on the front and the Happy Birthday are both Print and Cut Bracket tags.

If I make another one, I hope to remember to ink the edges of the cup.  I think it would have given it some dimension.

YoYo Clown Dolls

I made one of these for each of my daughters.  The first one, I made before she was born and we didn't know the Gender.



Since I am not very fond of non-gender colors for babies, I waited until the baby was born before I made her clown.

This baby took her time and was about 14 years behind her sister.  We knew she was a going to be a girl.

I am writing up this pattern and hope to have it available in the future.

Christmas Cake





This is my very first attempt at a Fondant cake. I used homemade MMF and homemade Gum Paste for the Star Tree. Glued the stars together with Royal Icing, brushed it with a little water and sprinkled sparkling sugar over all.

I made this for Christmas 2012, and am only now remembering to post pictures.
