2201  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Slugs, I love 'em.*switched pic host* on: February 14, 2008 03:29:18 AM
I started making a slug a while ago 'cos I was bored.
and it snowballed.

this was made for a friend on another forum for our secret santa; the rules were it had to be reused, it could cost no more than 5 for an item OR materials to make an item.

I made a toy slug and cauliflower.

this one is a squeaky surfer slug that I made for my l'il bro. it had a squeaker that I got from hobbycraft in their sale this xmas. appologies for terrible surfslug photo, was taken on my phone on the train.
2202  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a toddler bed from.... a bed. on: February 14, 2008 03:23:43 AM
my mum was throwing a load of stuff out of her loft just as minime was getting to need a bed rathe than a cot. mum had a headboard and footboard, my hubby had the skills to re-form it into a bed which should fit her until she's about 5 or 6. originally, the size was a necessity as her room was teenytiny, but now she's got a bigger room due to a house move and it is still great as it means she's more room to play. I was incredibly proud of my mr when he made this.

in situ in her old room

I don't have a pic of her new room with everything in it!!!
I've also made her some cute bed covers and bought her a duvet from ikea which is just the right size for the bed... but again, no pics yet.
2203  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / MUTTons on: February 14, 2008 03:14:31 AM
I am a self confessed terrible knitter. I can't follow knitting patterns and before may last year I couldn't even purl.

yet I made these. I was incredibly determined to do it as they were for my sister in law who loves anything home made.

2204  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Smocking on: February 14, 2008 03:11:35 AM
This is a dress made to a pattern in an old children's clothing book that I found in a charity shop.
it's 2 rectangles, one twice as wide as the other. I used iron on transfer smocking dots on the back 'cos I'm no good at the whole measuring stuff thing. it fitted her really nicely as a short dress last summer (you can see the funky nappy cover pants too) and it still has enough give in it to be a top over some shorts this year.
I was incredibly proud of my smocking.

all hand sewn as I didn't have a sewing machine then. I couldn't get the little poophead to stand up for me, so here she is in full glory, lounging on her barbie chair.

I used Langdale Yellow, I think it's been renamed as "supercook naturals". it's curcumin and tumeric extract. I used to use a powdered variety but can't seem to find it in any of the shops round here. I had a hard enough job finding the langdales!!! mind you are christmas i had a hell of a job finding natural marzipan and glac cherries too  Roll Eyes
