Naughty word swap stuff

Received stuff from my Naughty Word swap partner - woo hoo, curse word coasters. They could work for Christmas tree ornaments too.

Here is a cute craft idea book.

And a nice inscription inside.

Plus, these really fun plates.

These are some bonus resin earrings and charms.

Here is my favorite item of the lot, the SHUT UP scarf in my favorite shade of pond scum green. Even if it is summer in Louisiana, I wanna wear it NOW!

Should you see a crazy lady in shorts and sandals wearing this knee length scarf, it's me! Feel free to point and laugh but leave me the f@*% alone.

Naughty notecards

Piss off

Sometimes I don't feel so fresh

Bite Me

Shut The F+=* Up

Shut Your Hole

Who doesn't like a nut lickin' squirrel?

Naughty word swap OR look at my box

Every once in awhile I think myself to be clever, as in, cutting fabric on the bias and making my own patterns. Then, sure as shit, I prove myself to be a dummy. Embroidered three, count 'em, three collapsible fabric storage boxes (tutorial here) and when I began sewing, I realized my mistake of embroidering UPSIDE DOWN!

Lots of naughty words uttered/screamed at that point. Frustrated, I just put them aside. A few days later, they seemed kinda funny, especially when you consider the theme of the swap. (Mom thought the boxes would make for amusing hats.)

Finished the boxes with handles on the opposite side so my swap partner could have the option of displaying words or not.

Naughty words on a tea towel

Still don't get it? Read the word, say it to yourself, slowly.

So, recently signed up for a swap on What's a swap? Folks sign up to craft stuff for a partner and then they trade. Themes range from owls to Golden Girls to the one I signed for - Naughty Words Need Love Too. Now you know why I could not resist. Participants were asked to specify their favorite naughty words.

My partner asked for embroidered tea towels so I stitched words that sound nasty on one side and an innocuous image of birds and airplanes on the other. Private side and preacher side, y'know.

Drawstring skirt, cut on the bias

Found this cute fabric at JoAnn's Fabric and decided it would look even cuter if I cut the pattern on the bias, instead of the stripes being vertical. And believe it or not, it worked! The side seams matched so perfectly, I surprised myself. WooHoo!

AND, AND, I finally learned to hem! Dang it all, I am some excited. And no, I will not hem YOUR shit. Learn your own damn self.

Embroidery on pillowcases

Still working on embroidery stuff. Stitched the "L" with split stitch, I think it is my favorite stitch. The "T" is satin and backstitch. Satin stitch is not the easiest to perfect and I would like to improve.
