112  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Is it possible to do this? on: May 12, 2009 01:04:44 PM
I want to make a charm bracelet using role playing game dice. They look like this.

I want to put them into a cage charm that closes securely, but that can be opened so you can take out the dice and play with them if you want.   I've seen charms like this on etsy, but none of them are big enough.  Is it possible to make a bracelet like this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
113  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Zombie Monkey on: May 12, 2009 09:08:58 AM
This little guy was made for a swap. Poor little thing is falling apart. His eye and tail are barely hanging on. Some kind soul (or possibly insane soul) and patched him up in the past, but has he's a zombie he is steadily deterioting. He super soft and makes you want to cuddle him, but be careful, he may try to eat your brains.

114  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / 2 in 1 Tablecloth on: May 12, 2009 09:04:23 AM
This is a tablecloth that I recently made for a swap. It's done in the colors of her home and is 60 X 60.  The great part is that each side is different so you have 2 tablecloths in 1.

Here is a close up of the patchwork side.
115  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fall Leaves Mirror on: May 12, 2009 09:00:08 AM
I made decorated this mirror for a swap. It's a IKEA Malma mirror that I painted.

116  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Fall Leaves Cross Stitch on: May 12, 2009 08:55:06 AM
I made this cross stitch for a swap. The pattern was from the DCM website. All I did was switch the colors to make them fit my swap partners decor. The floss was the varieted color floss.

117  COOKING / Dessert / Changing Tree on: April 28, 2009 09:58:42 PM
This is the Changing Tree from "My Friends Tigger and Pooh." It was for my nephews 2nd birthday. Pooh is by far is favorite thing. I had originally done the leaves in rice crispie treats but it wouldn't stay together and fell apart into pieces. So I ran out and got a styrofoam ball that I frosted.

Details of swap:

There have been several scavenger hunts in the past but we’re going to do things a little bit different this time around. Each participant will suggest 1-2 items or themes (feel free to suggest more if you like). Example: You can suggest a specific item such as a 5x5 square of fabric, or something broader and more open to interpretation like something green. Then I will go through and select 8 that I think are the most unusual, neat, etc. but still easily craftable. When you are assigned your partners you will also receive this list (which will be a mixture of the options shown above.)

You will need to send an item for everything on the list. That means you will be sending 8 things. 4 of the 8 must be crafted, the other 4 may be store bought. One of the crafted items should be a medium everything else can be smalls. Remember that everything in the list is open to interpretation even the specific item (it could simply inspire your item not necessarily have to be a part of it). If the way you used the item is not completely obvious include a note explaining it. However, let’s keep things plausible.  Also, please don’t split up a pair of things that you would never use just one of and send it in for two different options.
Please PM your partner and the organizer when you send out your package and when you receive it.

119  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Receiving Blankets on: April 25, 2009 04:09:48 PM

A friend of mine just had a baby boy. As I've recently become very crafty I decided I wanted to make her some gifts. Receiving blankets are always useful and I found this cute flannel that I couldn't resist buying. I had extra of the blue so I made my son one as well. The close up is to show the detailing I did on my sons. The other two only have one size of rick rack, but I think it turned out so cute.
They were so simple to make. You just sew two pieces of fabric (mine were 1 yard each) right sides together, making sure to leave a space unsewn so you can turn them right side out. After you've turned them you can either just top stitch around the edges or add rick rack or some other embellishment before top stitching. I liked how they turned out so much I don't think I'll ever buy a receiving blanket again. If I ever have any more kids you can bet I'll be making all their blankets.

120  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Diaper Essentials (Pict Heavy) on: April 25, 2009 03:29:38 PM

This is a diaper clutch I made as a gift for a friend. The button on the front is decorative as it uses Velcro to close. It's large enough for the wipes clutch and a few diapers. You might be able to fit a few more things in, but it was really intended as a way to keep diapers and wipes together when you want to throw them in your purse rather than take a diaper bag.

This is a wipes case I decorated to go with the clutch. It was super simple, and yet not. By that I mean I wasn't careful enough with the hot glue gun and ended up burning myself on the glue. I love the way it looks but the pom poms (while way cute) do create a problem. They make it hard to shut because sometimes they get in the way and the case won't shut tightly. In this case is was no big deal (she's using cloth wipes), but if you were using store bought wipes they would dry out.

Since my friend is doing cloth diapers I thought it would be a good idea to have a separate little bag to keep the soiled ones in if she had to change a diaper while being out and about.
This bag was a first for me in a couple of different ways. It was my first zipper pouch and it was my first slit pocket.
I lined the bag in vinyl, but my mother suggested that even being lined it may be hard to clean and get all gross. So I put in a slit pocket for holding Ziploc bags that the soiled diaper can go into before going into the main bag. I realize that you could skip the main bag altogether, but by having it you are hiding the dirty diaper. Which to me is a good thing.

Here is the changing pad I made to match. Way simple to make. You just cut material to be the size you want (allowing for seams-especially if you are doing the front the way I did). Then you put them right sides together with some quilted batting sandwhiched in between and sew around the edges. Make sure to leave space unsewn for you to turn and to add in the ribbon for tying closed. Flip it so you have the material showing keeping the batting in between. Pin in the ribbon where you want it to be and then top stich around the edges. It may help press the edges with your iron.

Finally, I made her some diaper wipes. It's just two pieces of flannel wrong sides together and then zigzag stitched around the outside.
