11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Help With Bloody Nurse Costume on: October 13, 2011 01:00:51 PM
I need help with a bloody nurse costume for my daughter.  We bought white scrubs.  What is the best way to bloody them up?  Red paint or does someone else have a better method?

Thanks! :O
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Anyone make string dolls? on: June 30, 2011 07:35:15 AM
Hi Everyone,

I am learning how to make string dolls.
I am pretty good at the body and head.
I want to make a ninja one for my daughter but am having a hard time wrapping the head for the hood part. I used black hemp for the outfit but the hood slips alot.
This is my second attempt. I used a lot of glue the first time it showed and looked a little sloppy.
Also, what is your favorite string to use? I have tried embroider floss, hemp (didn't care for) and just twine (love but it doesn't come in colors). I have read crochet thread is nice?
I have an eye question too. What size beads? How to I get them to set inside the string? I was thinking of tweezer to open up a space to place them in.

Thanks ahead of time!
13  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Help With Ponytails Please on: November 11, 2010 06:09:25 AM
Okay. So my teenage daughter is not into her hair at all.  I was never a ponytail gal.  Can someone tell me how to get a nice smooth ponytail?  What brush - styling product - bands?  She has medium thickness of hair, is a dark blonde and her hair has a slight wave.  My avatar photo is very old.  She is 14 now.

Thanks! :O)
14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Civil War Nurse Costume Reconstruction on: January 31, 2010 10:22:33 AM
My 13 year old Daughter gave me one days notice to come up with a Civil War Nurse costume for her social studies class.  This is what we came up with.  The bottom is a white, denim skirt.  It had some nice embroidery on the bottom.  I cut it off for another project and hemmed it up.  It's a drawstring skirt so we put the drawstring in the back so it looked more like an apron.  The bodice part of the apron is the corner of a pillow case we fused the red cross on.  The floppy nursed hat is the other corner of the pillow case we turne up for a brim, hemmed the bottom and rounded off the corner.  We found the ditsy floral print dress at a thrift store.  I thought it turned out pretty cute! 

15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sprout Necklace on: January 22, 2010 11:20:46 AM
Our Girl Scout troop made these sprout necklaces for a try it patch a few weeks ago.
I got the idea from Family Fun magazine.  Purchased the containers from Hobby Lobby and put an eyescrew in the lid.  The lace is the rubber stuff.  The girls put two damp cotton balls in the bottom and two lima beans.  It took a few weeks for them to sprout like this. 

16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Flutter the Sock Monkey on: December 23, 2009 09:53:16 AM
I made this sock monkey for a four year old neighbor girl for Christmas.
I wanted to make it more like a play toy.  The cloths are removable, the wings and hat also.  I posted a photo on my facebook page and got a request to make one for my friend's Daughter's birthday.  I would love to dye the sock part this time and purple or some similar color.  Might do that.

19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Skeleton Sock Doll on: October 16, 2009 04:03:35 PM
I was flipping channels and could see Martha Stewart was doing some kind a Halloween doll.  Once I saw it was a skeleton sock doll I knew I had to make one.
Here it is.  The pattern is on her website of course.

20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / School Locker Memory Board - UPDATE on: August 03, 2009 08:06:48 AM
I wasn't sure where to list this. My daughter is going into 7th grade and after having magnets and mirrors etc. sliding all over the inside of her locker door and falling to the bottom of the locker we decided to try something a little different.  Her wonderful Dad went down to her locker and measured the door and I made a French memory board insert for her locker door.  The cut out part is where the combination lock is on the inside.  I used three cork squares but next time I would just use one sheet of cork I think.



This is how we decorated it.  What's nice is you can decorate it at home and then bring it to school. 
The flower is from her first dance recital, I added heart patches to the photo strip of her and her and her 6 year old sister, a clown pin from her clown collection, a heart from her little Sister, make a wish charm I made for her, little blocks that spell her name from a necklace she had in kindergarten, she loves Garfield so a Garfield comic strip that reads, I hate Mondays, her GS patch for selling 500 plus cookies this year, a chihuahua paper doll to represent her dog Rocky and the sailor hat for her Grandpa who was in the navy in WII, the dog card I sent her at camp, it is musical and sings about how much I like her that I would even share my french fries, she is a french fry junky, a picture of her and all her cronies from her last Birthday party at a local bowling alley and last her book mark about being a book worm.  I think it turned out cute!
