Fan Embroidery from Becca's Crazy Projects

String Theory Fabric Art has some fun fan embroidery designs. This is just one of them. I wanted to stitch up some fun, small, Star Wars themed gifts. The clear vinyl on the back lets you store that ID or other card in style!

Machine Embroidery Snap Tabs from Becca's Crazy Projects

This weekend I had a terrible time managing to crank out a sock. Those of you who are here for all the other crazy projects I guess this is good news. For me, it was cranking five socks to have one suitable sock. I did manage to kitchener some of the toes on socks from last week, so I was productive. 
I decided to take a break from socks to stitch up a snap tab for a friend. 
The design is from String Theory Fabric Art. They have so many amazing and geeky designs.
I know a Star Wars person ...

Relaxicon 2019 from Becca's Crazy Projects

Last weekend we joined friends old and new in Pennsylvania for Relaxicon 2019. The event is put on by Wilmark Dynasty, a gaming group that has been around for decades. Yes, I said decades. Looking back over the big live action games they hosted over the years, it looks like our first game with them was way back in 1998. We haven't participated every year, as we have moved more than a few times since then, but we do like to go when we can.
There won't be a bunch of pictures, since I spent more time playing ...

Knitting, Embroidery, Mending, and Games from Becca's Crazy Projects

I don't have a focused post for today. So, we'll go over a bunch of things I've been working on or doing over the last week. 
I've been working on this knitting project this year. I started with the Dotted Rays pattern by Stephen West, but I'm seriously considering making it into a poncho, or infinity scarf. That idea is very nebulous, though. I'll share how it turns out if I figure out how to do it. 
I embroidered a pair of hand towels for friends. The dragons might look a little funny because ...

Happy Mail from Becca's Crazy Projects

I am a sucker for a great Kickstarter campaign.

A while back I decided to back a fun project from Dog Might Games. The Traveller Dice Tower seemed like fun gaming tool. I have backed a few of their projects and have been very happy with their products and their excellent customer service.
The dice towers arrived last week and I wanted to share them with you. I picked up a second dice tower during the backer-kit stage because it was a great deal. I'm so glad I decided to back this project. These are great! I'll be ...

Applique Snap Tabs from Becca's Crazy Projects

I shared this fun fabric earlier in the week. Those round motifs begged to be put onto a snap tab. I sat down with my embroidery software and got to work. I already had the round snap tab design from my previous project with the D20 so I all I had to do was sort out the applique portion of the design. 
First I measured the outline of the motif and tried to add the applique portion. It turned out too small so I tried a couple more times. 
I did manage to get it to this point, which is ...

Dragon Chow Dice Bags from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've shared my use of the Dragon Chow dice bag pattern a time or two. I'll say it again, it's a great, free pattern! With even a little bit of sewing experience you should be able to make one.

I picked up this fun fabric at the big box fabric store. It was too fun to pass up. I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to do with it when I bought it.
I also bought a yard of coordinating Kona cotton solid for the lining. Overall, this was a very satisfying project. These little ...

Embroidery Design - D20 from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've had my embroidery machine and design software (5D Embroidery). I have played with it off and on over the years but it has frustrated me because it doesn't operate like other drawing software (such as Inkscape or GIMP). I decided I wanted to design something badly enough to struggle with the software until I got it do what I wanted.

First I went to find some appropriate art. This is one of the many images available on Game Icons.net. If you're looking for some simple vector graphics to use in game design you should really ...

Dice Bags from Becca's Crazy Projects

Sometimes I need a quick project. Something that doesn't take much time but makes me feel like I've accomplished something. That something was a pair of dice bags.

If you have a gamer in your life, are a gamer, or know someone that really wants a small bag, I recommend you check out this free pattern from Dragon Chow. Lindsay has shared this pattern under a creative commons 3.0 license. It is a great project to use up about a fat quarter of fabric and come away with a great little bag.

The cord is from the ...
