11  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Pumkins: Nightmare Before Christmas, autumn leaves & my husbands hair on: January 06, 2007 10:22:53 AM
For his we made a stencil out of a picture of one we saw at disneyland.














I used a hammer & metal cookie cutters to punch leaf & acorn shapes through mine:










And, semi craft related, we cut & died his hair so he's look like a pumpkin for Halloween:



12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Band T-shirts + lots of fleece = my new favorite quilt/blanket on: January 06, 2007 10:13:29 AM
I started making a double sided t-shirt quilt for my husband a long time ago. Halfway through it I decided that making it double sided would be too much of a hassle. So I just made a quilt with tshirts on only one side: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56092.0 Which left me with all these other t-shirts cut out & ready to go sitting in a box for a couple years. I decided to make them into a second quilt to give to him for christmas this year. It's more of a blanket than a quilt because there is no batting, just fleece backing. The two layers are sewn together at the corner of each tshirt.







13  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Acorn & hearts M&P soaps on: January 06, 2007 10:01:03 AM

All wrapped & ready to go:
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / ribbon cat toys: a rainbow and a jellyfish on: January 06, 2007 09:55:23 AM
*The cloud is made of fleece.
*I didn't stuff this one (I've made two similar cat toys in the past) with anything.
*The face is painted on with fabric paint.
*I triple sewed the ribbon on with tiny stitches so this one should hold up for awhile.









Action shots!










And this is an old one that I forgot to post:






15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Acorn/Fall Themed Wedding Crafts- DONE! on: October 01, 2006 09:33:39 PM
Wedding Favors:


I was up all night making over a hundred cookies. I wanted to frost them but ran out of time.








The archway had a bunch of random stuff drawn on it in sharpie by some braty kids. So we wrapped some fake leaves around it.




Guest Book:
At the last minute we decided to have do a polaroid guestbook. Since we didn't have time order the pages, we copied them from: http://www.guestbookstore.com/ I  enlarged them but then they were blurry. So I printed them out, traced them, scanned them and then printed them again.






I also made some simple bouquets for me and my bridesmaids.






We also made our invitations: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=119006.0
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Husband's Alkaline Trio shirt into new dress for me (now with tutorial) on: September 10, 2006 03:55:20 AM
Just finshed making my first dress ever. My boyfriend has all these old band shirts that don't fit him anymore. I'm using most of them to make a couple quilts but still had a few left over. So I whipped up (ha, actually took me about 4 hours because I'm lame) a new dress. His shirt for the top half, an old bedsheet for the bottom half and some lace I had lying around for the straps and trim along the bottom.






17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / (Red/White) Wedding Invites Finally Done on: September 05, 2006 02:11:10 PM
We finally finished our wedding invites! Our wedding is in a month, way to procrastinate. To make them we:
*cut giant sheets of handmade (not by us) paper down to size
*traced the acorn picture for the cover onto vellum and embossed it
*attached the acorn picture with photo-corners because every type of glue looked awful
*printed all the info for each sheet onto vellum and cut those down to size
*perforated the RSVP cards so that once they're filled out the guests can just tear them out and pop them in the mail
*embossed an acorn stamp onto the back of the postcard RSVPs
*hole punched them and tied all the layers together with a bit of ribbon

It seemed a lot easier/quicker in my head, but then isn't that how all projects turn out? Smiley















18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Squirrel shirt...deceptively cute on: August 06, 2006 02:55:13 AM
Gotta love the oversized acorn (from Joann's Fabric, of all places). I've always thought that squirrels looked really cute on the outside but are rather evil on the inside.

19  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Kurt Halsey shoes on: July 31, 2006 01:32:07 AM
I think all of kurt halsey's (www.kurthalsey.com) stuff is adorable, especially anything involving cats. My boy bought me some of those vans that everyone has, on super clearance, and they we're far too boring to be left alone...

20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mommy Monster w/removable babies on: July 14, 2006 03:17:04 PM


We had one of those big furry ikea pillows. It got washed, pillow died, pillow cover has just been sitting around waiting to be turned into stuffed monster. But first I needed to come up with a way to take advantage of the zipper...and then it struck me: baby monsters!
