21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Quilty Scrappy Utility Apron on: June 02, 2010 09:03:01 AM
I kinda just winged this yesterday and finished it up today. I hang laundry and garden and do lots of crafty stuff all day long and wanted a good heavy duty something with pockets.

I used scraps for the front pockets, trim, ties and waistband. The only hard part was blind sewing the edges. I messed up a lot.

There are three pockets, fully lined in the blue/gray dots.

God. I look pregnant. *sigh* This is what happens after five kids and no sit ups.

Sucking it in looks much better.

How I did the marbleing was just to divide the colors up into the right spectrum groups (pinks/reds, orange/yellow, greens, blues, etc.) broke the crayons up fairly small and when they were all melted very carefully took a toothpick and swirled gently.

25  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / blog giveaway advertise on etsy store? on: June 02, 2010 06:27:28 AM
I'm hosting a give away that kinda is in relation to my etsy store but I'm wondering if it's a good idea to post the contest in my top heading on my store or if it's not related enough. There are three prizes and the third is something from my shop (of my choosing under a certain price).

Would it distract from would-be sales too much? I'm a new store, I have 6 sales so I'm not sure how it would go over.

29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Crayon Wallets on: June 02, 2010 06:07:02 AM
I made these for my girls from a pattern off youcanmakethis.com they're constantly running around coloring (and leaving their crayons all over the place). The top one has fabric from the Olivia the pig line which says "Olivia" all over it and is for my daughter name, well, Olivia Smiley

The elephants is an imported japanese light canvas that has glitter on it. And the middle apples is just regular cotton. I liked using the canvas as the outside and doing just the pocket part a coordinating color. The whole thing is done with about as much fabric as a fat quarter, some interfacing and velcro. I thing the velcro is better than a button or snap for my littlest is 3 and I think the other fasteners would be too frustrating.

These would be awesome to add to stockings, easter baskets, whip up a few for party prizes or big brother/sister gifts. They took about 1.5 hrs to make all three and that's with figuring out the pattern.
30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first foray into Pyroglyphics on: June 01, 2010 08:44:20 AM
I love sustainable toys and this was on my list to make for awhile but I couldn't find the balls the proper size until recently.

It was a lot harder to do than I thought. Some of the lines are deeper or thicker than I meant. I tried to trace out what I wanted with a pencil beforehand but writing on a curved surface is kinda hard.

I'd like to try again, get fairly good at it and give them as heirloom gifts for new babies.
