1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / At home Christmas clay craft art on: October 19, 2010 07:46:17 PM
I seem to remember that when I was a kid that there was a make at home, either air dry or dry in the oven clay type substance that we made Christmas ornaments out of.

Unfortunatly this year due to an impending divorce, a new baby and being layed off at the begining of the year my Christmas budget is nearly zero. I'm looking for a recipe for a make at home air or oven dry clay that I can impress my daughters handprint into for christmas ornaments for her grandparents, aunts and uncles. Any recipes or pointers would be most greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
Kelly
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / It has been a month of babies! on: April 03, 2009 12:25:22 PM
This is a set of Hexagon baby sweaters I did for a woman I work with that is having boy/girl twins. The babies are due in June so I figured I'd go a bit big and warm and they would be good early fall sweaters.

All yarn was stash, some red heart soft in guacamole, Vanna's choice in Dusty and Antique rose and some navy that I think was Bernat. The buttons on the boys sweater are little car novelty buttons and the girls sweater were crocheted to match. I have offered to replace the buttons on the boy sweater with similar if the mother feels nervous. As of now she really likes the car buttons.





And this is a blanket I made for My hubbies cousins that are having a baby boy in a few short weeks. Sorry the pic isn't great I had to crop a close up from a shower picture, I forgot to get a photo of the blanket before. There was also a matching hat with it. It was crocheted in soft green Red Heart soft baby steps. it opens up big, about 32 inches square.

Made this for a friend, she is giving it as a gift for a shower.

Started the sweater with a simple top down sweater pattern and got bored really quick so I figured out the raglan shaping and then winged it. Both the purple and green yarns are soft acrylics but they were from the stash and unmarked, the pink for the flowers was some left over Vanna's choice in dusty rose.

So a girl I work with asked me to make a baby blanket for her sister. We took a look at some ideas and she really liked the woven effect of the Checkmate baby blanket from the lionbrand website. So I made a few alterations (added a row, shrunk the whole thing) and this is what I got. It is just about 28 inches square.

I also made a coordinated hat of the scraps.


Here is a close up:


The colors are all Vana's Choice and Vanna's choice baby: black, chocolate cake (baby), beige, honey, dusty rose and antique rose.

While a lot of fun the amount of color changes were INSANE. I do think I will make another of these, full size and for me.

Hope you enjoy! Any comments/criticism (good or bad) would be appreciated!
