31  Cardinal Shrine in Completed Projects by jillybeans on: July 22, 2013 09:46:17 AM
I made this little shrine for Craftsunderground in the One Tiny Bird Thing swap.  She said she liked cardinals, so that is the theme I ran with.





The shrine is from Coffee Break Designs and is ATC sized.  Inside I put in bright colored scrapbooking paper and branches from our tree in the back yard.  The cardinal I painted with acrylic paint.  I'm quite proud on how he turned out, since I don't have a lot of experience with trying to do realistic paintings.  The outside I painted black with acrylic paint and then covered in scrapbooking paper and other bits, like stamped scraps of paper, a dictionary page, some glitter glue and paint pen.  The eggs on the back are also painted by me.  The top has a beer bottle cap covered in a circle of scrapbooking paper and a button and then the word "cardinal" broken up, as well.

My One Tiny Bird Thing swap item was received and I can now share that with you all!  Yay!  Here it is!

I also zentangled some shoes for my sister's co-worker and made some curly ribbon hair clips for babies (my new niece, my cousin's very soon-to-be baby, and my soon-to-be baby!) though I didn't take pictures of any of that yet.  Hopefully tonight. I'm still working on curly ribbon hair clips, though.  Its my project for my lunch break today.  ^_^

I haven't gotten much done recently, but here's what I have gotten done over the past couple weeks.  First off, a castle and peg people I painted for my niece's 4th birthday.  I got the castle from Michael's and the peg people from Hobby Lobby.


To start I sanded it, then added 3 coats of a weathered oak stain.  Afterwards I added grey acrylic paint to the edges to make stones and added some scrapbooking paper rugs and crests to the walls.  I then coated the whole thing in a layer of polyurethane (which I didn't like the end result of, but oh well!).


And here are all the peg people to go with.

I also freezer paper stenciled some onsies for my mom who has a baby shower for a coworker this week.


oh, and CONGRATS smashu!!!  YAY YAY YAY!

I finished up Baby Bean's monster bonnet last night.  I'm not sure if I like the horns, though.  I think smaller, little nub horns would have been cuter.  But, whatever!  Its done!  ^_^

always, that pincushion is so beautiful!  And I'm so in love with that shawl!!

I got more stuff done this weekend!  Yay!


A tutu for baby bean!


And some baby headbands for my niece, my cousin's baby, and my baby.  I still have a bunch more to make of these.  The three less wider headband parts are ones that I bought and then resized to make smaller for a baby and the wider ones are from a spool that I sewed together.  I can probably get like 4 baby headbands out of one spool that I bought for $1.50 each.  Woot!  Each headband is about 12-13" long.

I also started working on Baby Bean's monster bonnet yesterday.  Its all sewed together, and today I will had horns to the top and get it all fixed up.  I'm already pretty proud of it, just because I'm not a great sewer and following patterns totally baffles my brain.  I have had to seam rip quite a few times already.  Despite all the mistakes and its imperfection, I love it.  ^_^

Man, I suck at getting anything made this year.  I feel like a total slacker, even though I'm not.  Just a slacker in crafting.  My excuse is that we just moved and I'm pregnant.  So yeah.  ^_^  But, guys, check it out!  I made something!!!

My baby's room theme is cute monsters, so I made this stuffie to go in her room:

I got the fur super cheap from Hancock's, over a yard for like $5.  I have a lot left and I really want to make a monster bonnet for her.  ^_^ 

Pot pies for myself and family members:


And a tutu for my cousins baby, who is due a month before me:

I'm gonna make a blue/black/white one for my baby.  Then they will be cute and matchy.  Here is creepy doll modeling the tutu.

I plan on getting more done this weekend, despite all the unpacking that I need to do, as well.

Project Name: Chicken Pot Pies!
Brief Description:  One of my favorite things to make is chicken pot pies.  They are just so good, and I've made them so many times now that they really are a no-brainer.  I barely glance at the recipe anymore and its more of a guideline for my pies, anyhow, since I make so many substitutions and changes to it.  I put them all together last night and then baked them this morning.  1 for me, 1 for my SIL who had a baby a few weeks ago, and the other 2 for grieving family members (my husband lost his remaining grandfather on Sunday.  Its a big Italian family and he really was the heart of them.)  Chicken Pot Pies are my go-to comfort food for grieving.  I'm a cheater, I use frozen pie crusts and the refrigerated top crusts from the store to make these.  It cuts down on time, which I don't have an infinite amount of, and my patience since I have none when it comes to making crusts.  Plus, the store bought bottom crusts come in a metal pan that I don't have to worry about getting back, and that's a bonus!

Project Name: Baby Bug's Tutu
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This Sunday, I also managed to make a tutu for my cousin's baby.  She is due a month before me and I've really been wanting to make her baby something, but haven't managed to find time, until now!  Though this is just the beginning!  The tutu was really easy to make.  I bought a yard each of a really light pink, neon pink, and black tulle.  I took it home, folded it in half (hot dog style) and cut to make my width.  Then, using my rotary cutter and mat, I made 4" wide strips.  My ribbon was 47" in length, though the final product was 17" around.  Using a loop tie, I knotted on each of the tulle strips (for a total of 73 strips of tulle).
Project Picture:

Here's creepy doll modeling the tutu, since Baby Bug isn't yet here to model the tutu.  I plan on making a tutu for my baby, as well, and perhaps one for my new baby niece (who is a few week old).

Project Name: Baby Bean's First Monster Stuffie
Brief Description: This weekend I finally crafted for the first time in weeks!  With packing and moving and then unpacking, its been all crazy.  But I finally had a little time to sit and make something, and oh man was it nice!  I'm 26 weeks pregnant and I've yet to make anything for my baby and I was starting to go crazy with the lack of progress.  Even though all my crafts are still in boxes scattered throughout the new craft room (and other parts of the house), I managed to find everything I needed relatively easily.  Mom and I went to the fabric store and I found some amazing fake fur for 70% off, which is total awesome sauce.  So, I made baby her first monster stuffie that will go in her cute monster themed room.  The monster is based off one one that I pinned from Etsy.  I made my own pattern, and eventually I will post it with its official posting in the proper thread.  And, for obvious reasons, baby bean's little monster fits under the blue theme for this challenge.  ^_^
Project Picture:


Eventually I want to make baby bean a monster hood out of this fabric, since I bought over a yard of it, and since that's all that was left on the bolt and it was such a good deal.  (Like $5 for all of it)
