Miscellaneous sewing if you can call it that

These projects barely qualify but since I haven’t done much else with a needle and thread lately you get to see them. Please excuse my lack of grammatically compete sentences. Strange mood tonight.

Water bottle holder. Yummy coffee/cocoa swirly fabric from Robert Kaufman. Self-lined with thermal-reflective fabric enclosed. Normally used to make potholders but should insulate cold as well as warm drinks. We’ll see how it performs.

Mario Galaxy luma stars. At the request of the boy and his copycat sister. Green, his current favorite color and dark pink, her perennial favorite color. Highlights and eyes sewn on by hand, outline sewn by machine on felt. The boy named his Starfy and the girl named hers Perla but subsequently calls hers Starfy as well. The inspiration is thanks to “Uncle” Chad who brought his Wii game with him when he came to visit. (The jury is still out on whether or not we should press charges.)

    Yup, that’s exactly what I used. It’s about the thickness of fusible fleece but it does crinkle.

    I’ve been thinking about making a drink carrier too. Just recently saw a post about this insulating stuff, http://tinyurl.com/3yph4um , that I could use to line the carrier, although I might just use some felted wool or cut up my old winter coat for the same effect. Would be nice to be able to take my drinks along and have them stay cold, without their condensation getting on everything.

    Your stars are entirely adorable!
