101  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Special Delivery Blanket on: February 19, 2012 09:03:11 AM

I made this blanket for my nephew using the Special Delivery Pattern from Coats and Clark. It was supposed to be 37 x 37, but my pregnancy brain messed up and it ended up being 27 x 37. It should work good for a car seat blanket if nothing else though.

I used 1.5 skeins of Bernet Softee Baby in Denim Marl and half a skein of Bernet Softee in Lemon.

Here's a close up of the stitches used.
102  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Darling Daisy Dolls on: February 03, 2012 11:12:51 AM

I'm having a little girl in April and wanted to make her a baby doll. My SIL is having a baby in August, and while we don't know what she's having yet, I thought I'd make an extra doll in case it turns out to be a girl. If not, maybe my little one will get two.

They're made from the Darling Daisy Pattern by Alison Berry.
103  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Bobble Blanket on: January 27, 2012 10:22:48 AM
This is the biggest crochet project I've managed yet. I saw this super cute baby blanket online and luckily, the creator shared tips on how she made it. She in turn got the idea from someone else, who also gave tips on making the blanket.

I used Bernet Satin in Lavender and ended up using just shy of 9 skeins. I used a J hook, but could have easily used a larger hook to make it go faster as the fabric is pretty dense. Size wise it is approximately 39 inches by 37 inches.
104  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mira, the Leshy Poppet on: September 22, 2011 07:03:33 PM
My husband has created a table top RPG world that we play games in every Friday night. So for his birthday I wanted to give him a poppet based on a race from that world.

The race I chose was the Leshy. They are based on the slavic mythological creature only in my husbands world they can be female as well as male.  Here is a wikipedia description of the leshy "He has hair and a beard made from living grass and vines, and is sometimes depicted with a tail, hooves, and horns. He has pale white skin that contrasts with his bright green eyes."

And here is my leshy. Her name is Mira.

105  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pearl and Crystal Wedding Necklace on: September 07, 2011 05:35:07 PM
My brother-in-law is getting married on the 17th and I made his bride a necklace. Her dress is covered in pearls and every once in a while there is a sequin that gives it a bit of sparkle. She's planning on wearing diamond studs and she wanted the necklace to match the earrings and her wedding ring. HE wanted it to not cover much of her neck.

So I got online and looked around and found a necklace that looked like it would work. Then I replicated it. This is the end result.

106  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Crystal Bracelet on: August 16, 2011 06:30:40 PM
This was my first time trying bead weaving and I love it! The pattern comes from the book Beaded Allure. I made it the size she suggested, but because I used the wrong size closure beads it came out slightly larger. So it's a tiny bit too big for me. Oh well. Next time I'll know better.

107  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doll Diaper Bag on: August 05, 2011 08:29:19 PM

I made this doll diaper bag for my daughters birthday. I found the tutorial at Twelve Crafts Till Christmas. The only thing I did different was pocket placements.
108  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sparkles on: August 05, 2011 08:07:08 PM

This is Sparkles. She was made for my daughter for her 5th birthday. Her hair is kind of big, but super soft, and honestly, my daughters hair looks kind of like that sometimes too.

She was named Sparkles because of her sparkly green and purple eyes.

(Sorry about the small size of the pictures. They're from my phone and for some reason saved to my computer small.)
109  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Another Pillowcase Nightgown on: June 12, 2011 08:13:01 PM

I liked the first pillowcase nightgown I made so much, I decided to make a second one. Plus when the pillowcase only costs 99 cents, how can you lose?

The pillow is yellow with purple flowers, so I used Purple double fold bias tape around the neck and for the tie, and added a purple ribbon around the seam of the top joining the skirt.

If you want to try making one of your own, I followed this tutorial from Gingercake.
110  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pillowcase Nightgown on: June 10, 2011 05:51:57 PM

I made this adorable nightgown from a tutorial over at Gingercake. It was super easy and turns out great. She only has it available in a 4T, but it's just a matter of resizing the pattern pieces. I left it the same because my daughters 4, however, she's small for her age, so it turned out a tiny bit large.

You can't see it in the picture (and honestly you can't really see it unless you're looking really closely in real life) but there are darker pink vertical stripes. Also there are darker pink flowers on the ruffle. (The best part about this is that the ruffle was already a part of the pillow case so I didn't have to do anything.)

In her tutorial she used a button closer, but she suggested also using ties if you preferred. I just happened to have pink bias tape in my stash, so I chose that route for binding the neck and the back and just let it go out to be ties. All I had to buy to make this adorable nightgown was the pillowcase which I got at the thrift store for 99 cents. Best 99 cents I ever spent!
