Haha, that's adorable! He reminds of Calliou, the kids cartoon character. I know a few nieces who would love a little doll like that. (And I have a huge stash to bust too!)

Very cute! I like how you had a whole teddy bear theme going! The little cupcakes on the tree stump and the small bears are my favourite part.

Great nursery! I love your colour combination choice. The muted greens and the strong orange are a colour combination I didn't think would work, but you've pulled it off really nicely here.

This is insanely adorable. I'm not a fan of clutches, but I'll become one if they're gonna look as cute as this! (and the matching little one inside? doubly cute!)
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Fruity Bs: Baby basket with booties and bib on: July 14, 2009 02:09:48 AM

i made these a while ago (back in May! wow how time flies!) but didn't have time to post them till now. The idea for the fruit basket theme present started off with the idea of a pair of pineapple booties, which led to the development of the watermelon bib. However the pineapple booties didn't quite work out as planned, so in the end it was replaced with a pair of strawberry "sandal" booties.

I used the Bitty Booties pattern by Heather Bailey. The booties are made of 100% thin scrap leather and suede from where I work. I punched out the little holes with a round leather punch and used a die to cut the heart shapes for the strawberries. The whole thing came together surprisingly easily on my home sewing machine. I embroidered around the opening edge of the booties, just to give it a little extra bit of girlie-ness.  Cheesy

The watermelon bib is made of cotton poly twill covered with vinyl for easier cleaning. The seeds are trapped between the layers and have a tendency to shift around... a feature I later regretted, but the father-to-be is totally enamored with it, so I guess it's fine Grin I made the pocket a little wider than the bib, so that the pocket stays open and actually catches food. The neck opening looked very small (it's supposed to close with a snap) so i added some ties using left over bias binding. I thought it looked a bit odd, but the mother-to-be thought it was very hip and stylish... Grin Yay for creative problem solving!

'scuse the mess in the background of the pictures... this is what happens when the whole basement is your crafting domain (i tend to spread out onto every free surface)
Thanks for looking!

7  COOKING / Dessert / Gingerbread Rabbids have taken over Christmas! on: December 27, 2008 08:52:13 PM
I've developed a totally unhealthy obsession with the rabbids from the Raving Rabbids series of games.

For those of you who've played/seen the second game, the gingerbread rabbids were my absolute favourite, and i decided that when Christmas came around, i'd make a whole army of them. They've been decorated using regular icing, mini m&ms, smarties, and various "sugar confetti" and those silver and gold "dragees".

Oh, and i made my own cookie cutter for ease of mass production Grin (not pictured, but i can if anyone wants to see it)

And now... the invasion:

(these were my favourites from the whole bunch(l to r): the "dalek" rabbid, the skeleton rabbid, and the "bikini rabbid sisters")

(the second left one has sunglasses on his head, not a bra [as my aunt believed, lol])

(I even made toilet plungers for them to hold![each sold separately  Grin])

(I cut a lot of other shaped cookies as well, including some cowboy hats which were the perfect size for the rabbids)

The recipe i used was pretty simple (I don't remember where it came from, but I have a copy of it if anyone would like it), however i burned out my hand mixer when i was adding in the flour in the final step  Cry  Next time, I'll definately remember to combine the flour in by hand. These were a huge hit with everyone, but apparently they're too cute, and a lot of people hesitated to eat them!

Comments and Crits welcome! (and sorry for the long post!)

that's so nifty! I like that that lines aren't all perfectly straight and such.. it really adds to it (imho)

I'd never have the patience to stitch that all by hand... but now i wanna try!
