Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

Finally!

I’m participating in a craft exchange through SpriteStitch.com. I’m participating in both the mini and mega swaps. Until our buddies receive their gifts, we’re on a media blackout for talking about what we’re doing. And for me who gets excited about anything and loves sharing, it’s been rough!

My mini swap buddy received her gift so I can talk about them. I made her a set of placemats, featuring appliques of some of her favorite games. From the top left, clockwise, we have Skyrim, Zelda, Dragon Age, and Fire Emblem. I used the Soft Fuse brand fusible web and then blanket stitched around the edges. The pink fabric is gradated and though it looks like there is some funky lighting from the top two to the bottom two, that’s actually the fabric. The placemats are machine washable.

My buddy also told me that she loves Disney and her favorite is Belle. I found this beautiful stained glass fabric on Spoonflower.com. People can design and print their custom fabrics, and make them available for others to purchase. And my friend Heather is again modeling the apron. The lighting was a little bright that day 🙂

Close up of the rose pocket. I knew I had this rose fabric … somewhere. I had to dig through all of my boxes to find it but I finally did find it at the very bottom of the last box. But it looks really good so I forgive the fabric for being hidden.
