1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Luna Lovegood Poppet on: March 29, 2015 05:28:46 PM
AugustBell was my partner in the Be Awesome Redux swap and wanted something to display. Her favorite fandom is Harry Potter and her avatar is Luna wearing her lion hat, so a Luna poppet is was!



I couldn't find small radishes, but I found some tiny carrot charms and thought they would make the perfect earrings for Luna. To help establish that she is in fact Luna, I made her butter beer cork necklace.  I knit her a sweater to go over her tank top and match her flowered jeans.



Her hair is mohair locks that I needle felted to her head. They are super silky, curly, and oh so soft.



And of course I had to make her lion hat. I just made the head from Larry the Lion a Funky Friends Factory pattern and glued it to a doll witches hat that I found at the craft store.



2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Sweet Heart Spin-Along Yarn on: February 21, 2015 04:49:38 PM
I recently participated in Blue Mountain Handcrafts Sweet Heart Spin-Along.

This is the yarn I made from the kit I ordered.



3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Fiber Swap on: January 18, 2015 08:26:54 AM
So we were going to do another fiber swap last year, but for one reason or another it just never happened. I still think it would be really fun, so would anyone be interested.

We could do it just like last time: send 4 oz of fiber that you processed in some way (dyed, combed, carded etc.).  Or we could do it like a swap they had back in 2008. It was a handspun art yarn swap. Basically you send at least 3 oz of fiber and 1 oz of add ins to be spun into art yarn. I think we would still need to keep the requirement of you processing the fiber in some way though.

What do you guys think?

ETA: Here is a link to the swap from 2008. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=234605.0

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pearl Necklace on: November 18, 2014 12:24:18 PM


I made this pearl necklace a while ago, just for fun. You can't really tell from the pictures, but a few of the pearls are slightly pink in hue.

I followed this tutorial: http://melancholysmile.blogspot.com/2012/06/diy-j-crew-necklace.html

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Dress with Sweaters for 0-3 months on: October 17, 2014 08:38:15 PM



I had two friends who were having little girls, so I decided to make them cute little outfits.


The dresses were made from the Little Geranium Dress pattern by Made by Rae. I made them with some fabric in my stash that was left over from other projects. I didn't have quite enough of the white and red fabric, so the bodice is lined with solid red.


The sweaters were crocheted using the Lullaby Cardigan pattern on Crochetvolution.


I used the Simple Daisy Crochet Pattern on Daisy Cottage Designs for the headbands.

I really liked out the whole outfits turned out, and the mom's did too.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Newsie Outfit for Baby on: October 17, 2014 08:25:55 PM
One of my friends just had a little boy, and while trying to figure out what to make her I came across an adorable pattern for pants with suspenders that I had to make. Then I decide to just go ahead and make a whole outfit to go with it.


The outfit.


Spruce Suspender Shorts by ZuzzyPatterns on etsy. These were very easy to make. I can't wait till someone else has a baby boy so I can make more.


Newsboy Hat Sewing Pattern by ButterflyTree on etsy.  It's reversible. The one side is quilting cotton, and the other side is a soft wool. It was really easy to make. I might need to make my boys some.


Little Man Shoes by Shwin&Shwin. They are made of quilting cotton and lined with blue felt.


Clip on Bowtie tutorial by Mommy Minutes.  I made one to match the outfit, and a few extra just because. I also did varying sizes for different ages. They were really easy to make and turned out really cute.

I usually don't make clothes for boys, because I have a hard time finding things that I really love. But this outfit was probably one of my favorite things I've ever made.
