11  Headband Ear Warmer and Fingerless Gloves in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by trickygirlb on: October 19, 2009 02:10:39 PM
This is going to be a Christmas Present for a teen girl. I know, I know, it's not even Halloween and I am already doing Christmas. Well my plan is to hand make all my gifts this year and I have a lot of people to give to so I have to start early. This was a sweater that has been recycled into a reversible Headband Ear warmer, and fingerless gloves. Now I need to find another similar coordinating sweater to make her a scarf and her gift will be complete. The flower is a pin so she can take it off and reverse her headband which is mostly red with a small pink stripe on the other side.

These are the glove pups I made following the instructions from http://www.marthastewart.com/article/glove-animals
They turned out pretty cute. These are going to be Birthday gifts for my twin nieces who are turning 8 in November.

13  Boot Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by trickygirlb on: October 19, 2009 02:05:09 PM
This was a pair of knee high cowboy boots from the 1970's that I inherited from my mom and loved! Years ago when I first got them I had them dyed black, they were originally Navy Blue. I wore these boots so much that the leather finally started coming off around the back of the heel and the toes. Not wanting to just trash them I decided to cut off the shoe part and turn the tops into a purse. I cut some leather out of an old jacket that was dated and worn for the bottom and used a leather belt that my husband had bought and never wore for the strap. All in all it didn't turn out too bad. I thought I was being original and did a search for cowboy boot purses, turns out there is a person in Oregon (http://www.diamond57.com/) who makes them and sells them for around $400.00...Holy Moly! Good for them to get that much money for their craft and good for me to able to craft myself an expensive bag.

14  Marco the stuffed Bat in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by trickygirlb on: September 17, 2009 09:01:42 PM
Marco is made from a recycled T-shirt and fiberfill and felt for his eyes and mouth. He unfortunately doesn't show up very 3 dimensional with the white background and him being black in the photo.

15  Kokeshi Doll made from toliet paper roll and newspaper paper maiche in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by trickygirlb on: September 12, 2009 06:13:45 AM
This was actually pretty easy. I tried to glue a spring from an ink pin inside the head to make her a bobblehead but the spring wasn't big enough.

16  Icebat and a skull embellishment made out of felt. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by trickygirlb on: September 11, 2009 08:04:50 PM
Icebat is also from the Uglydoll series. I made him out of two microfiber towels from the Dollar tree, if only I would've made him 2 weeks earlier I could have entered him in the Dollar Store Challenge. The onsie I bought, but I made the skull out of felt and sewed it on.
This is a gift for my nephew who is turning one. I hope he likes them.

I love the Ugly doll series, so I decided to make a Poe Dragon out of a green t-shirt.

19  Tutu Ruffle Skirt in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by trickygirlb on: September 11, 2009 07:55:49 PM
This was a tutu ruffle skirt I made for my daughter.
I took a dress that she didn't care for and cut off the skirt and put in an elastic waistband and sewed ruffles on it. The ruffles are made out of a bath loofa, brand new of course. I cut the rope off of the loofa and unraveled the netting, cut and began sewing to the skirt.
