Well, this was a special request from my sister for my niece for Christmas. Everything I just made up as I was going along, and no I wasnt frantically crocheting durring the 12hr car ride to see her for Christmas. What kind of an aunt do you think I am??lol OK here we go: First, a hamburger and bologna sammich, complete with all the fixings (lettuce, tomato, cheese)
A hot dog
Ice cream cone (sorry its sideways, I made more scoops but didnt get a pic, used velcro to make them stick and stack up)
And my best one so far..... A salad (complete with baby carrots, cucumber slices, tomato wedges, egg wedges and 3 different kinds of greens)
Well, I have been saving christmas cards for years now and I finally found a use for like 10 of the 1000 or so I have (just kidding, I did make a dent in the box of cards)
using my handy, dandy, sizzix (tree and star die's) I cut out the shapes, glued 2 back to back (prolly dont have to, I just thought it looked neater and sturdier) and then I crocheted them together with just a simple chain stitch (could just be strung on yarn or ribbon as well)
My son has decided to take on the greaser/rockabilly look (BTW he's 15, he looks so adorable), my boyfriend uses American Greaser Supply, I bought my son som murrays, I am almost thinking we need something in between those two (murrays is super thick and sticky and american greaser is kinda thin and ubber greasy), any suggestions? I thought about making a big batch and putting in jars for all my greaser guy friends.
First off I have to say, all of the quilts in this category make mine feel like a two year old made it. I am really not much of a sewer, seamstress, whatever, but I had this idea to make a quilt for a friend of my hubby and his wife who are expecting thier first baby. The friend plays in the the band, The Dwarves, and I had a silk screened back patch (meant for putting on a jacket) so I decided to use that as the center and they dont know what they are having (by choice, I hate it when people do that) anywho, so I hope this looks pretty gender neutral.
It measures aprox 38x38 inches, I messed up on the frame around the patch, one side is narrower than the others. It is backed with black quilt backing (and yes, my fabric store actually had black) what do you think?
Christmas Eve-Eve (uh December 23) my new baby niece Lucy was born, I had lent a friend my baby sling and havent gotten it back and I really didnt want to spend a lot of money on one, not knowing if my sis would really like baby wearing like I did/do. So following some instructions I found here: http://www.mamatoto.org/default.aspx?tabid=180#731 I bought 5 yards of this super cute fabric at wal-mart for only $2 a yard, I came up with this:
she really likes it, went right to sleep. she is super secure in it, I was walking around, doing dishes, picking up and she didnt move once.
