12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Even More Super Hero and Villian Peg People! on: October 05, 2016 03:10:29 PM
I made my nephew a ton of super hero peg people a few years ago.  He was carrying them around along with some comic books this summer so I asked if he wanted more for his birthday.  He said YES!  So, off to work I went!  Each peg person is painted with acrylic paint and then a spray clear coat to seal.




Ironman, Captain America, and Poison Ivy!


Batman, Cat Woman, and Thanos!


The Joker, Deadpool, and Hob Goblin!


Mystique, The Flash, and Wolverine!

I wasn't sure if he had room in his other box for more, so I decoupaged a new one for him with comic book pages.

13  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Baby Bean's Tutu Party! on: October 05, 2016 01:58:58 PM
My mom and I had just a TON of leftover white tulle from my wedding a good 7 years ago just laying around in the basement calling out for use.  So, we decided to do a princess dress-up party for my daughter's 3rd birthday. 



To start, we dyed a bagillion yards of tulle.  We had red dye that was made for polyester and nylon.  The other was just a regular blue fabric dye, but still worked just fine on our tulle.  We boiled them outside on our gas camp range, rinsed a few times with cold.  Afterwards I ran them through the wash to make sure all the extra dye was off the tutus so they wouldn't mess up any of the girls' clothes.  Then we hung them outside to dry.  We boiled different lengths at different times to get lighter and darker shades, and mixed the red and blue dyes together to make purple. 







To make the tutus, I used wide loose woven headband material, sewn into toddler waist size circles.  I used my rotary cutter to cut the tulle into 5" wide strips.  I pulled and knotted the tulle through the headband material in two layers and then added a bow at the end on the back of each tutu.  I made 12 tutus in total!  Whew!!



The extra tulle (which there was a lot of), I used to decorate for her party.  We were going to have the party outside, but it rained so we had to move it indside.  I still got to do what I wanted with the extra tulle, though.  We used our collapsible canopy (minues the fabric canopy part) and put it up in her playroom and draped tulle over it.

I haven't painted a lot of shoes this year.  I blame in on the baby I had in June.  Wink  But I managed to do a pair for a mom friend for her son's 3rd birthday.  He loves Plants vs Zombies!  These little guys are canvas shoes with fabric paint, painted on with brushes.

16  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby Bean's Toddler Quilt on: July 15, 2016 01:43:06 PM
It took me forever, but I finally finished my daughter's quilt for her toddler bed.  Its a simple design, but I'm a simple sewer.  My daughter's room has base colors of black, white, and gray with bright colored accents.

17  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / You Are So Loved! on: July 15, 2016 01:34:12 PM
My kids' new playroom needed some art.  I wanted something Harry Potter-ish without it being super Harry Potter since that wasn't the theme of the room.  I absolutely love this quote from Harry Potter.  In the movie, Harry's mom whispers it to Harry right before she dies.  I use to snuggle my youngest when she was a baby and say it to her, too.  So, it is now immortalized in their playroom.

I started with a large thick sheet of watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby.  I applied watercolors in a gradient fashion.  On top, once all was dry, I wrote the quote on to the paper with pencil and then black acrylic paint over that.  Popped it into a frame and VIOLA!  ART!

18  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Doc McStuffins Painted Toddler Shoes on: July 15, 2016 12:43:59 PM
A mommy friend and I were doing a meet-up and decided to swap homemade gifts for our toddlers who are only 3 days apart in age.  I decided to do what I'm good at, and painted her some shoes.  Violet loves Doc McStuffins, and more specifically Lambie.  She has a Lambie stuffed animal that she carries around with her everywhere.

This time I did something a little different and did glitter on the shoes.  For the glitter I did a base coat of the magenta pink color fabric paint so the mod podge and glitter would stick better to the canvas shoe.  Then, it was a few layers of glitter and mod podge ending with glitter ontop so they would be super glittery.  The rest of the shoes were painted with Tulip soft fabric paint.  I was pretty excited that I found the exact color of glitter I wanted at Hobby Lobby.  Woot!







I want to glitter up more shoes, it was so fun!  Thanks for looking!

This looks like fun!  I will have to ponder whether I could get something done with a 1 month old baby and toddler.  Hmmm.  I will think for a day or two.

I get impatient when I do watercolors and generally grab my embossing heat gun and dry it quick with that so I can go into the next step. Who has time for waiting for things to dry the regular way?!
