For RhymeswOrange: Here are the puppets I have made. I will also be making a cute box or bag to store them in and I'm working on a little back story for each one. I hope you like them!

My personal favorite. Smiley

Everybody else. Wink

Thank you everyone! I finally managed to peel it off of her for bedtime. LOL
44  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Thrift store sweater to awesome striped winter clothes!! on: October 25, 2010 05:19:00 PM
I picked up this adorable cotton knit sweater (with stripes!!!) at the thrift store a few weeks ago with it in my mind to make a pair of pants OR a shirt for my daughter from it. As I sat down to cut it today I realized I had enough there to make not only a pair of pants but a shirt as well if I paired it with an old polo I had in my recon pile. (Sorry I do not have before pictures, I usually don't remember them until after the fact.)

After some (not so) careful cutting (I admit, I hacked it to pieces) and creativity I came up with this: pants, shirt and stocking style cap. There is about 4 inches to spare on the length of both the sleeves and the pants, so I *hope* it will fit through this winter. The pants have a yoga style waistband for comfort (waistband made from the polo) and were made mostly from the sleeves of the sweater and a small piece to make up the seat of the pants. The strategically placed pockets on the shirt are to cover up the old stains on the polo where I surely spilled something awful (and for coolness of course!)  The hat was just the leftovers from the sweater after everything else was finished.



I don't think I have seen her this pleased with something in a while. She has not taken it off all afternoon, in spite of the fact that it is still warm enough that we have the windows open! DH tried to take the hat off of her so she wouldn't overheat and she squawked at him and ran to me so I could put it back on her. She is seriously in love with this outfit.... and I have to admit, I am wishing I had one for myself... Wink

OK, let me just say that you are WAYYYYYY too hard on yourself for this. You did a great job! I have been quilting off and on for over 5 years now and I know SEASONED quilters that can't do any better. That quilt looks awesome, I LOOOOOVE the owls and I think your son more than forgives you for it.  Trust me when I say that it is the *least likely* projects that the kids adore the most. The things I have hated to give to my kids because I thought they were way too crappy were the very thing they loved the most. Chin up, you did fabulous!! Cheesy

Long story short... your DH is crazy. Smiley Seriously, that apron is friggin' adorable!!  I clicked on it because I thought it was cute and I would wear it in an instant!! Though if you are dead set on swapping it I would love to be the VERY happy recipient and would struggle mightily to find something suitable to swap for it! Wink

49  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Received WONDERFUL gift from RhymeswOrange!!!! on: October 19, 2010 06:32:49 PM
In my mail was a box. In this box was a fox. This fox is purple. And awesome... and my rhyme just broke, as did my grammar. Wink
It is a fox!!! It is a scarf!!! Drum roll please for the amazing purple fox by RhymeswOrange!!!

(Please excuse my ridiculously goofy expression, but I never have made a very good model and it was the only decent pic that showed all of the purple fox with her wonderfully LONG tail.)

A not so goofy pic:

The close up:

I cannot begin to express my utter delight with this AWESOME scarf/fox!! She is PERFECT and will see MUCH use this winter! Cheesy (See, I told you I'd be thrilled.)  Thank you RhymeswOrange for being such an awesome swap partner! Cheesy

The ONLY problem I have is that I will now have to figure out how to make another one for my daughter... she keeps trying to steal it.  Cry


She needs a name..... any suggestions?? Smiley
