1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My Little Pony: Pinkie Pie with link to Pattern on: November 27, 2013 10:26:06 AM
My girls are in love with My Little Ponies and who can blame them! I decided they needed some crochet dolls to go with their plastic dolls, so I started browsing. I came across this lovely free pattern on Ravelry that sent me to this blog http://knitoneawesome.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic.html. I followed the pattern, which was surprisingly easy considering I have never made any type of amigurimi before. They eyes and cutie mark were made with felt and embroidery floss. I plan on making Fluttershy next Smiley Here's the results (sorry for the crappy pic. I couldn't find my good camera!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Owl Hat! on: November 16, 2013 09:40:35 AM
It's that time of the year again folks! The time when you need to bust out the warm winter hats. The only problem is, my kids like to lose all of their hats. My solution: make a new one! This is the owl hat that I made. I used just plain old Red Heart yarn for it and followed the pattern from: http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2012/09/crochet-owl-hat-pattern-in-newborn.html. The pattern was really easy to follow, though I did find it ran a little small. I just popped it on my kiddo's head and crocheted accordingly. Behold the owl hat!
3  COOKING / Dessert / Pumpkin patch cake pops on: October 30, 2013 07:14:21 PM
Made these today for my 4 year old's preschool class. They are dyed orange funfetti cake mix on the inside so when you bite into them they look like real pumpkins. This was a fun project and I got to play around with all kinds of Jack-o-lantern faces when I painted the faces on.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Autumn Wreath! Semi-tutorial on: September 20, 2013 03:49:08 PM
I thought that I had an Autumn wreath stashed in the garage, but I was wrong. I started browsing around at the stores for a wreath that I liked, but couldn't see spending $20 on one. So, I marched my way to the dollar store, gathered some supplies and made my own!

Materials:
Stick wreath
Taffeta
Fake flowers and leaves
Wire ribbon
Glue gun

How I did it:
I wrapped the stick wreath with the taffeta ( This made an absolute mess!) Then I got glue gun crazy and stuck a ton of leaves, flowers and the goodies that came on the fall leaf bunches at the dollar store. I like the look of the wreaths that are full and layered and that is what I did. When I got close to the end, I made a loop hanger with the wire ribbon, glued it on and then wrapped the base with taffeta. This worked really well and I am fairly confident that it will last through the years.

Total Cost: $8 (Yeah dollar store!)
This is the in progress taffeta wrapping and showing of the supplies.
Finished product hanging on my front door!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / The Little Mermaid curtains! on: May 19, 2013 03:02:13 PM
After looking for a few weeks for the perfect Little Mermaid curtains, I decided 1.) The selection is pretty shitty and 2.) I refuse to pay $50 for curtains. My solution: 2 hours of my time + an $8 set of Disney Little Mermaid sheets from Ross and a thick white twin sized sheet from the thrift store = new curtains for the girls room! This project was pretty simple to do. I have made normal unlined curtains before, but I wanted these to be lined for thickness and light filtration, so it got a little complicated there, but I think they turned out a great success!
