1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Christmas Dollhouse on: July 02, 2009 07:08:03 AM
OK, so I know it is waaaayyyy too early for Christmas, but I've been working on this for two years and am so proud to finally be finished. I built it from the fairy tale house kit from Greenleaf, but decided to change it up a bit. My aunt passed away a few years ago, and she absolutely loved Christmas. I decided to make a house that she would enjoy as a kind of happy memorial for her. I tried to take a picture with the flash off so you could get the idea of how it looks all lit up. Enjoy the pics and thanks for looking.











2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Resale shirt made into a pillow on: June 27, 2009 11:17:12 AM
So my friend gave me this great idea on how to reuse a shirt and make it into a pillow. I bought a shirt from a resale shop. I really liked the pearly buttons and the western motif.  Cheesy  I cut out two circles and sewed them together. I didn't need an opening to put the pillow insert in, because I just used the front of the shirt as the opening and the snaps closed in the insert. Then I thought, this looks kinda boring, so I decided to include the end of the sleeves to keep more of the shirt detail in the pillow. Then I embroidered some lightning bolts and flames just for fun. Thanks for reading and looking!  Cheesy





3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Nosferatu on: June 02, 2009 08:41:13 AM
Here is the third Creepy Crochet Creatures I have made which were taken from a pattern in the book "Creepy Cute Crochet" by Christen Haden. The patterns can sometimes be a little challenging to navigate, so I would recommend them to more advanced folks. They crochet up pretty quickly and make great gifts for goth friends and Twilight fans.  Cheesy   Enjoy!






4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Little Devil and Alien on: May 31, 2009 06:04:23 PM
Here are two cute, yet menacing, crocheted creatures. One is a devil and the other is an alien. I took the patterns from this awesome book called "Creepy Cute Crochet" by Christen Haden. They were pretty easy to make and are creative ways to use up your scrap worsted weight yarn.  Grin




5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Scary Monster Plushie! on: May 24, 2008 09:01:31 AM
I was really inspired by the yeti post this week, so I decided to try my first monster plushie. I think it turned out pretty good considering this was also the first time I hand sewed anything other than a button.  Cheesy  Enjoy! and thanks for looking!



6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Making Software on: May 22, 2008 11:01:58 AM
Does anyone know of a good free cross stitch pattern making website? I have seen a few good ones for sale, but honestly I am kinda cheap and would enjoy a freebie.   Grin 
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Spooky Plastic Canvas....Beware! on: May 20, 2008 05:49:27 PM
This is my very first plastic canvas project. It is pattern #9695 from Mary Maxim. I wasn't sure if this would count as needlework or holiday, so I tossed a coin and here it is. If you haven't tried plastic canvas....give it a shot. You can't go wrong!
