1  old boring crib to chic and trendy! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by little-pea on: August 24, 2009 11:24:22 PM
i'm expecting my first child and so "project nursery" has been weighing heavily in my mind for the last few months. in one week i purches THREE convertible cribs, but kept returning them because i think spending $500 on a crib is an atrocious amount of money. plus the style of them were not quite "right" in my eyes.

i saw this set and fell in love. the shape, the contrast, the PRICE. unfortunately walmart.com does not ship to addresses in canada and walmart.ca has crap. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=6005161

so i saw this ad for a used crib and bought it for $100

fugly. i know. the feet - abomination.

being 7 months pregnant at the time, my friends helped me sand, prime and paint it to this beautiful work of art

notice how we removed the feet?


this is what the furniture looks like so far. the dresser is an ikea malm model. instead of painting the drawers, hubby and i bought one dark, one white and swapped them. the white dresser with dark drawers lives in the closet (because... is it really necessary to hang baby clothes on hangers?


and the "boys" waiting for my little boy to arrive  Grin

I stumbled upon a baby hat on etsy that I fell in love with. The seller was only selling the hat, and not the pattern. I knew I HAD to make it for a friend's daughter so after some good hard staring online, I started to hack away at it.

Here is what I came up with



The seller gave me some sizing of the hats she makes. This hat has a 17" circumference, which is for a child about 6-12M. My friend's daughter is only 3M now... so I'm curious as to how it'd fit around xmas because she is swimming in it right now!


This is the close up detail of the flower. As you can see, Chilly is modeling it. Turns out.... his head is approximately the size of an infant! he's stylin. But since his eyes are so low and wide set apart.... I have no reference as to what a human would like like in it. Looks like I'll have to make a smaller size and borrow some friends children as guinea pig  Grin

3  Mundsters - Winston in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by little-pea on: August 23, 2009 04:24:26 PM
Hiyo

I'm Winston.





Winston was created for a good friend who just had a baby daughter. Unfortunately, I was feeling very very uncreative when making him, and so he does not have a background story at all. The yarn I chose to make him fluffy was sheer HELL to work with, and that's probably why I'm so uninterested in him.

Anyways, it is still a FO, so I gotta post him on here Smiley

i batts my lashes to get what i want




i got extra long everything so i can be dragged around!



to take the photos, required some double sided tape.... she's really top heavy!
enjoy!

One day I was having mad hate for my boss at work.... and began to crochet a voodoo doll. Everyone quickly became obsessed. I created jinx and bad juju for two very good friends


jinx and bad juju (who was created with an unintentional smile)


size comparison to chilly

the voodoos are about 7.5" tall and chilly is about 11-12"

9  Chilly *brrr in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by little-pea on: March 28, 2009 04:45:42 PM
When I saw Chilly off roxycraft's site (http://roxycraft.com/), it was love at first sight.... which quickly became an obsession! It's been pretty slow at work, so I finished him in about 5 days, on and off. Needless to say, he's caused quite a stir at work and among friends on facebook! I don't have the energy (obviously I have nothing but time tho) to make one for all my friends, so lets just say I've recruited a few people to learn crochet.

this is what they get for making fun of my granny habit Smiley







OH THE LOVEEEE <3

I LOOOOVE MODERN LEGWARMERS!!!!

i searched on ebay for some and they were so ridicuously overpriced that i mimiced a few. here are some pics (hope this works *crosses fingers*) pics are dark because lighting in my room is crap, but if anyone requests closeups i'll get my boyfriend to take better pics


cant really tell but i wanted a baggish look at the top so i threaded stretchy elastic string, superglued it at the tightness i wanted, glued on pom poms and felted them


same as above, but with stripes and felted again


my first attempt. i have a love/hate relationship with these. they not as baggy as i wished. non felted. and the elastic is too tight. but i live the stripes


i wear all my legwarmers with needle pointed boots or with chunky runners (i just stretch them out at the bottom a lot to make them baggier) i have another pair with a not so baggy top but my friend borrowed them.
