Default Jess' yarn and sewing bag

HI! I'm Jess, and I'm a craftoholic.

Hi, Jess.

My crafts are primarily crocheting, sewing, and colouring in. I also cross-stitch and draw. Anyway, I made this thread mostly for challenges, but I might put in some of the other things I make. I'm a tad obsessed with sewing at the moment, so I might just fill this thread up with the clothes I make.

The Robe's Monthly Challenge - December
HOLIDAYS


I've not made a LOT of things this year. In previous years I made crochet decorations, but this year I made a Holiday Bunting! I also ran out of gift cards and made my own, which I'll upload a bit later. But for now, this is my Holiday Bunting;

SPOILER!!: Holiday Bunting



SPOILER!!: Gift tags
With a bit of yarn instead of ribbon because I ran out, and I have a box full of yarn


This just shows it a bit better


The tree was cut out from some Christmas quilting fabric, the scraps from the Bunting I made. It's just brown paper that I got from some sort of packaging (because my middle name is FRUGAL) and some old silver string from a packet of gift tags. I made the holes with a big doll needle with yarn.

Thanks Liz and Whit

Here are some other things I've made.

SPOILER!!: Butterick6285 Skirt
This is a double box pleated circle skirt. Not so great on a windy day LOL. It has POCKETS and a lapped zipper.


A friend of mine just had a baby, which gave me a chance to do THIS stuff;
SPOILER!!: Crochet ripple blanket, burp blanket, bib, dress

It... has been a loooooong time! I've not sewed anything since January, owing to moving houses and things, but I've been doing a whole lotta cross stitching. This is the first project I've ever completed I had a teddy bear one I started in 2004, a really colourful tree (which I didn't like much) that I started about four or five years ago? A really lovely 1920s piece, which is so detailed, and I'm still working on, but THIS cute little piece I started and completed during my holiday to Toronto

SPOILER!!: cross stitch

Hi Jess!

I am also a craft-a-holic. I love to sew, crochet and paint rocks! We just moved into a bigger place and I got a craft room all to myself, which makes me very very happy!

I love your work...very very nice.

I finished another cross stitch! I made this for my good friends who are getting married The lobsters have a story, and my partner created the pattern for the letters!

SPOILER!!: She's your lobster!

Oh nice! I've never tried anything on a different colour background. I have 3 unfinished too They're easy to start, and there's SO MANY (especially on Etsy) that it's hard to stay focused haha.

I hadn't either! I usually do it on white or an off white/cream. I thought it'd be a fun switch.....hard to do though xD I just need patience. I should take a picture of one I did for my grandmother that now hangs on my wall and post it here it took ages as it's like...8 1/2 x 11 inches and bordered in black x's

Crochet Octopuses! A colleague of mine is going overseas to volunteer as a nurse working with infants, and wanted to take some octopuses with her for the babies. The tentacles are used to stop the babies pulling at their various cords, and apparently replicate their umbilical cord, resulting in an improvement in vital signs. Well, I thought I'd try it out. I'd only made baby blankets before and wasn't totally sure I'd actually be able to finish one, but they were very simple and fun and I ended up making 13!

The three on the left were my 'practice ones' and some of the yarn wasn't very soft. The other ones were made with 2 different strands of 4-ply VERY SOFT yarn (so soft), to make 8-ply.

SPOILER!!: Crochet Octopuses!
