What a "pear"fectly "sweet" idea! This is so cute!

Here's hoping your plan to make more "bears fruit!"

O.K, I'll stop with the puns now.  Grin
42  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Jumpin' on the Scoodie Bandwagon! on: November 09, 2007 06:28:40 PM
Whew! It's getting crowded on this scoodie wagon. Prompted, like so many of you, by vegbee's delicious post and tute http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=198678.0, I made a couple of scoodies for my cutie pie and for myself as well.

Here is my DD in her scoodie:



It's a deep red corduroy on the outside and a flamingo pink fleece on the inside.



I made the scarf way too short, so it doesn't flip over her shoulder well. Thankfully, she prefers it tied in a knot.



For fun, I added a little tassel on the top and a fringe on the ends of the scarf.



For mine, I copied the hood on one of my winter coats. It's made from three pieces of fabric for a flatter top look. The outer fabric is a decor canvas, and the inside is a heather fleece.



At the ends of my scarf, I sewed on some pockets. The little flaps were a happy accident and are held in place with a button.



Here are the end of both scoodies:



They are so cozy! I wore mine out and about today and I found the pocket to be very handy for holding my keys and sun glasses.

Thanks again vegbee for the inspiration. Cheesy

Nice work, edel!

I've been wondering how these would look with topstitched edges, and now I know-- marvelous! Thanks for posting your FO. Smiley

Brilliant colors! Your mobile rocks. I can just imagine those arrows swinging around every which way, further symbolizing a crazy, mixed-up life. Smiley

silverfisch, your bucket looks awesome! The print you chose goes so well with your anime collection on the shelves. Ya-hoo!

So, who will be the first to make a batch of nesting buckets? Wink
46  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate Candy Bar Cookies:: A post-Halloween Treat on: November 05, 2007 06:50:45 PM
That's right: candy in a cookie. Redundant? Nah, just delicious!



My three-year old daughter raked in way more candy than we would ever allow her to eat, so I wanted to do something to *use up* some of her chocolately treasures. The answer: chocolate candy bar cookies. This is certainly not my idea, but I thought I'd post photos of these beauties if only to inspire any of you to pull that monster bag of goodies out of the cabinet and make something with them.



As for a recipe, I just used Betty Crocker's recipe for Chocolate Chip cookies and substituted cut up piece of chocolate candy bars for the chips. They turned out really good, but I might skimp on the sugar in the cookie dough if I had to do it over again. One other tip: bake and cool on nonstick surfaces. I cooled the first batch on paper towels and the melted caramel from several of the bars stuck to the paper. Parchment paper worked like a charm for the subsequent batches.

I'd also like to say that I brought over a bundle of these to the neighbors as a gift... but I haven't-- I just keep eating them!  Wink

Yahoo, craftydeb!

Well done -- your efforts are not in vain. The bucket looks great! Cheesy

craftydeb and others,

Apologies for the wacky measurements and for the consternation they are causing you! There's nothing worse than a busted tutorial.

I know I cut out perfect 3" squares from the folded edge of my fabric to arrive at the first bucket. But perhaps my other measurements are wonky. I'll look into it as well.

Thank you silverfisch and craftADDchick for trying to help, and thanks craftydeb for your patience!

Craftster is THE BEST think tank I know!

Great ideas, everyone! My faves so far are:

* making something else (throw pillows, valances, coffee table cloth, etc.) out of the same fabrics and use the bucket as a matching accessory "catch-all"

* inserting a plastic tray and using it as a plant cozy

* filling it with guest room goodies (if only I had a guest room, sigh)

* kid stuff storage!

As for a tutorial, it is so much like the Jordy bag (tute link at bottom), I felt it would be a little redundant, but I could snap some pics of the few modifications I made and throw something together. Give me a day or so. Wink
