1  Dinosaur drawstring backpack in Knitting: Completed Projects by PurpleLime on: July 22, 2015 05:51:42 PM
Made for the three year old who LOVES dinos so she can carry them around with her. Wink Made on my Bond USM using roughly this pattern as a guideline:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sassys-stash-sack . I added a lining and a flap. The dino motif is from here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dinosaur-chart  .

2  playhouse and sandbox in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by PurpleLime on: July 20, 2015 07:09:06 AM
I hope this is the correct location for this project. I did not see a spot for woodworking so this seemed the next logical place. (It IS a plaything.) Feel free to spank me if I got it wrong. Wink
Hubs and I designed and built this for the smallest kidlet's birthday. Complete with a lid for the Sandbox so it doesn't become a litter box for the local cat population. Yuck!
So far it has been a HUGE success with all three kiddos! Cheesy Parents FTW!!

This will likely be something of a long term project as well we have plans for adding a nice garden to the side and to make a matching picnic table. Maybe even a cool swing set and slide need to be added on! Who knows ? Smiley

3  Sora Cosplay Halloween-Kingdom Hearts!! in Halloween Costumes by PurpleLime on: November 09, 2014 09:15:04 AM
I'm just going to let the pictures speak for themselves. My son wanted to be Sora from Kingdom Hearts for Halloween. I made the patterns and constructed everything except for the sword. His only complaint was that it required me to style his hair. Wink

There you have it folks! I hope everyone had as much fun this Halloween as we did!! Cheesy

4  This is what happens when pirate captains propose a merger! in Halloween Costumes by PurpleLime on: November 01, 2011 02:49:41 PM

My name is Captain Bonny. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Bonny

This is Captain Rackham. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calico_Jack

We met on the high seas and after many fights decided that we worked well together. Captain Rackham proposed a merger of our forces, but me being a solo kind of gal it took a little convincing!

I began to realize the error of my ways ....

....and agreed to our merger.

Captain Rackham then revealed that he was also interested in a different sort of merger.

I took a page from ChainCrafts http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=390581.0 for the action shots and narrative. Thanks for the inspiration!

I made both captains' costumes from Simplicity patterns and found items. All of the jewelry you see was crafted by me except for the earrings and my coin belt. Captain Rackham's bandanna I embellished with bead strands. I am especially proud of his eyepatch which I made to look as though it were permanently attached to his eye socket. I added thumb tacks (no I didn't actually use them to attach it!) for decor and used garmet tape to adhere it.

My dress was made from some super awesome VINTAGE 70's knit fabric I found at a yardsale that begged to be used for something totally cool. Though the sewing wasn't that intense it took several weeks to put it all together. I hope you like it!

Please be kind, I'm a Craftster Challenge virgin. Wink

5  Cutie Patootie Spring Overalls in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by PurpleLime on: May 13, 2011 08:52:19 PM
Since it is spring and my daughter has outgrown everything from last year I have been busy making her a new spring wardrobe. This is only one of many, but so far is one of her favorites. Since she has pretty good taste in what works for her I figured I would post this one. It is an overall pattern from McCalls #4756. It is shown as a boy's pattern, but overalls look adorable for ANY little kid. Smiley The fabric was from my stash, I have no idea when or where I got it, but it is covered in bugs and snails. The overalls are fastened with frog buttons which I think she likes best of all. The pattern did not originally call for a pocket, but after trying it on her once she politely requested I add one. Not being one to turn down such a nice and sensible request I added a contrasting pocket. Smiley

6  Stripey Skirt of Wonderfulness in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by PurpleLime on: May 13, 2011 08:39:54 PM
This is my new favorite skirt. It is an 8 gore wrap skirt (ends up being a bit more than a full circle) fastened with vintage buttons. The buttons and buttonholes also serve as decor on the waistband since I don't technically need all those fasteners. Wink

8  First Successful Spinning!! :D in Spinning: Completed Projects by PurpleLime on: November 16, 2010 11:44:44 AM
I did an awesome private swap with RhymeswOrange recently. She sent me a box of fiber and a drop spindle along with a great book so I could learn to spin. My first efforts were not so great, but I think I'm beginning to get the hang of it the second time around. Here is my first *successful* attempt at spinning. Not too bad I guess, certainly not as lovely as some things I have seen here, but I'm proud of it. Smiley The pic doesn't look quite as pretty as the real thing, but it is close. This is a lovely shade of bubblegum/cotton candy pink. I am thinking a pair of mittens for my little girl.

Oh my goodness, I feel so spoiled today!!! I got my package from Swickered and had to squeal about it!! Here is a shot of everything:

Close up of the awesome selection of tea she sent me. I am intrigued by the wonderful smelling ziploc baggie, is this a blend of tea you made?

Cutesie owl fabric that will certainly be put to some magical and special use.

BELLY DANCE STUFF!!! A book on technique that I will most certainly learn something from and a book on costuming that will be a blast and make me the envy of my dance class! Wink

And .... drum roll please....... TA DAAAA!!!! The cutest tea pot EVER!! Complete with two lovely cups to serve it in. (I <3 pottery. It is my first love in crafting art.) Smiley Beautiful blue and beige glaze! (Sorry I can't get a good pic of it right now, my lighting is bad for photographing pottery.

Thank you so very very very much Swickered!!! Cheesy
