A sort of TTMT

But instead of being Talk to me Tuseday it's more of a Type to me Thursday :P
Mostly because I'm bored babysitting my Nephew while he sleeps.

sorry about misspellings the spell check still isn't working for me :/


so this is all the crafts I've been making in August.

First my embroidered cupcake wraps
Cupcake wraps
Cupcake wraps
I got this idea from vampirecraftin(www.vampirecraftin.blogspot.com/)But put my own little twist on it hers where made out of paper. I just thought it would be more practical to be able to use it more than once so if they get dirty I just throw them in the wash and use them again next time :) I'm thinking of making theme ones like Harry Potter and Twilight

ok next are my twilight_crafts august twibom (twilight block of the month)

the beginner block
This is the original and is meant to represent Edwards eyes
Twibom August

And because I was still in a Paper piecing mood I did this one wtich are red

togaither I call them what he is and what he could be.

and then there is the advanced block witch is called "the meadow"
The medow
I'm not used to no seam allovence so this block didn't come out as straight as I would have liked but it came out ok :) And I think Edward went way back into his closet and found a jacket from the 60's or 70's :P

all the twibom blocks are designed by hardhatcat

ok next up is My calander
I found this calander at a flea marked but it was missing some of the numbers. So I took out all the original numbers and months witch were made of small wood plates and exchanged them for fabric ones witch I embroidered with my machine.

this is a Sookie Stackhouse block designed by vampirecraftin on flickr(www.vampirecraftin.blogspot.com/)its the first time Ive tried to do applique and I like how it turned out for a first try :)
Sookie

and then there is my Pride and joy the 'Pride Corset' I made for this years Gay pride parade
I got this idea on a Tuseday and finished it by Friday. I'm so proud of how well it turned out it is by far the prettiest corset(probably piece of clothing) I own and I'm counting the once that are store bought.

on this one I hadn't finished doing the binding or put the grommets in but it is an over all pic

So Have a good week and Happy Crafting everyone

LOVE all your work. The TwiBOM block looks just great. My pattern has seam allowance, so I'm wondering why yours doesn't.

Great save on the calendar. It turned out really nice. The cupcake holders are just adorable.

That corset should win an award! It is just beautiful. It reminds me of Mardia Gras parades in New Orleans.

Great work.

Please keep sharing with us.

Thank you.
the outside has seam allowance but the indevidual pieces don't I just can't seem to get it straight without it (I probably just need to practice)

I'll ware the corset if I ever go to a Mardia Gras parade in New Orleans then :)

What software are you using for your machine embroidery? I may need new software, and wondered if you like yours.

I have 4D Professional. I haven't used any other so I can't really say what it's like in comparison to anything else But I like it :)

there is one thing, it has a tendency to freeze on me but I'm not sure if that's the software or my computer. It didn't freeze when I was running windows vista but it has been since I upgraded to 7.
Hope this helps you

Thank you. I'm looking at 5D, if I can justify the cost.
