1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Kids clothes - size to age. on: July 21, 2009 03:20:33 AM
Hi guys,

I have just raided my mums stash and scored some awesome vintage patterns for kids clothes. Only problem is some of them are in american sizing and I am not sure how this translates. For instance in Oz we have the following sizes:
00000 - Premmie
0000 - Premmie or newborn
000 - 0-3 Months
00 - 3-6 Months
0 - 6-12 Months

However some of my patterns have 1T, 2T, 3T and 4T. Could one of you lovelt craftsters please translate this into age appropriate sizing please.

Thanks in advance!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cute Cupcake Zippy Pouch on: July 14, 2009 12:25:38 AM
I have always been a little bit afraid of zippers, but I decided to bite the bullet and give one a try. I used this wonderful tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0 and I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.

I used a remnant of very dark brown corduroy for the outside, and lined it with some el cheapo cupcake themed cotton. The zipper is bright pink, so it kind of makes me think of chocolate covered strawberries or something!



3  COOKING / Dessert / Caramel Apple Vlaai on: July 13, 2009 11:58:45 PM
My fiance is half Dutch, and in the interest of embracing his cultural heritage (and discovering more yummy things to eat), I decided to learn to make vlaai. Vlaai is a type of sweet european pie made with yeasted pastry, traditionally filled with fruit.

I used this recipe http://www.internationalrecipesonline.com/find/Apricot%20Vlaai, however I substituted home made apple sauce and home made caramel for the apricot compote, and sliced granny smith apples for the apricot halves.

It's not the prettiest pie in the world, but it tastes lovely! I was unsure how I would enjoy the bready texture of the pastry, but it is delicious. It's not actually burned, but the caramel got onto the pastry and made it very dark. Next stop Rijstevlaai (sweet rice pie).



4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A few of my creations on: July 12, 2009 08:04:46 AM
Hi Guys, I am new to craftster, and I thought I would post some of my jewelery. I made these about a year ago and have given most of them away as gifts. I haven't made a lot of jewelery lately as I had a baby, and I'm now spending some quality time with my sewing machine.

The pink and green foil beads are my favourite, and are now proudly owned by my best friend.

I hope you like them and TFL! (please excuse the crappy photography!)










5  COOKING / Dessert / Australias Biggest Morning Tea (4 photos) on: July 12, 2009 07:57:42 AM
The Cancer Counci here in Oz encourages people to host a morning tea once a year to raise money for cancer research. I hosted one last year for my workplace and made over 100 cupcakes - they were really difficult to get into work!

Here is a shot of my desk all covered in cupcakes!


(that's not all of them, I had already sold about half!)

Here are some yummy cookies and cream cupcakes



These ones are neapolitan cake with a meringue frosting



And these were by far the most popular - chocolate mud cake with rocky road topping! They were so rich and decadent!



Thanks for looking!
6  COOKING / Dessert / Heart Cupcakes (3 Photos) on: July 12, 2009 07:50:15 AM
These are some cupcakes I made for my grandmother when she was in hospital, the nurses loved them! I hope you enjoy looking at them. They are chocolate buttercake with a vanilla buttercream frosting, decorated with piper chocolate and pink cachous.





7  COOKING / Dessert / First Fondant and Royal Icing experiment on: July 12, 2009 07:23:58 AM
Hi there,

This is a cake I made so I could play with fondant and royal icing, it was a few years ago now, but I got out of the habit of photographing my creations... I am going to start doing it again now that I have people to show them to! It's not the greatest cake you will ever see, but I have a soft spot for it... it sparked my love of cake decorating!

The cake is covered with fondant, the bow was my first attempt at a fondant bow (a bit dodgy!) and the flowers are royal icing floodwork. I hope you like it.





8  COOKING / Dessert / Jack and Jill cake on: July 12, 2009 07:16:05 AM
Hi there, I am new to Craftster, and have recently been sewing a lot but havent taken any pictures, and have given my projects away as gifts. So I thought I would post some of my other crafty adventures for your viewing pleasure.

This is a cake that I made for my grandmother when she was in hospital. She had a brain tumor and in my sick sense of humour I made her a Jack and Jill cake. She really liked it. Tha cake was a caramel mud, iced with white chocolate ganache and covered with fondant. I hope you like it.
