31  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Make a Child Smile Cards on: March 15, 2007 10:33:35 AM

These are some handmade cards I made for this months featured children of Make a child smile ( the children featured monthly on this website are ones with chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The site tells a brief description of the child & their disease. It also lists their likes and dislikes and their mailing address to send the cards to. Please take a moment & send one of these kids ( or better yet all 3!!) a card / postcard. * Oh, and you do not have to handmake the cards you send if you dont want to, but i'm guessing most on this particular forum would  Wink

My daughter (age 10) & I vowed to send these cards out monthly. This is a great project for children to teach them compassion & gratitude while being creative all at once.

I couldn't imagine being a mother to a terminally ill child. Sending these cards out monthly reminds me of how blessed I really am & puts all my silly problems into prospective.

Oh, & I made these cards from a brochure I received in the mail from Build-A-Bear.  They have the cutest bear pics in their catalog/brochure, but now my figures are sore from all the cutting ! Wink

I just finished this capelet for my 10 year old daughter.  (she modeled very professional-like dont you think?!  Wink Grin ) It's crocheted in the round starting from the neck down &  I just went along and designed the capelet as I went. 



another picture to show the detail.


I'd love to know what you think of it. Smiley

34  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Circular baby blanket on: October 28, 2006 06:22:57 PM


I made this blanket for my 6mo old baby boy.   The colors are brown/tan & baby blue ( for some reason the blue looks sorta white on my screen? ) It also matches my livingroom decor well.  I followed this pattern: http://woven-stars.tripod.com/rippletutorial/.

 I used 1 strand of yarn instead of 2 & I used an I-hook. I sorta changed the pattern after row 5 because it was curling up for me?  Not sure why?   I also added one more stitch on the points of the star on the last row to round the edges a bit more.

My recently finished crochet project:



pattern here:
http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/cp4.html

This pattern was very very easy and works up so quickly..! I just love having some projects laying around that I can work on while watching t.v. or too tired to count stitches etc. ( i have a 5mo old so the feeling of exhaustion is pretty normal around here  Wink )

I just whipped up this bag for myself

The fabric really isn't this bright in person ( i think it's my phone cam ) - i used a vintage sheet and heavy duty interfacing:

40  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Pretty Peyote Ring on: September 24, 2004 06:02:40 AM
I was on a beading frenzy a few weeks ago and made this ring:

http://www.fashioncompassion.com/blogpix/peyoteringblue.jpg

I made it using even count peyote stitch.  It was fairly easy to do ( but time consuming like peyote is!) .. because I didnt follow a pattern to create a design so that made it slightly easier.  Instead I chose teal green and blue seed beads and beaded them in a random pattern.  I kept beading until it fit around my finger & that's it!   Smiley
