12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: HP Craftalong ~Fall Semester 2014~ *Join Anytime* on: November 06, 2014 08:20:44 PM
I've been awol for so long!  I totally miss this craftalong, so I think I'm gonna jump on in, despite the fact that the end of the quarter is coming soon!  Oh well!  I have a lot of catching up to do!  I know I've completed some classes in the past, I wonder how close I am to being an alumni!  I guess I have some homework to do!  Wink  Well, here is what I've been working on this quarter.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress Challenge - October
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Baby Ewok Costume
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436612.msg5261531#msg5261531
Brief Description: Baby Ewok!  So, yes I cheated a little and bought the bear costume underneath, but I made the headpiece and spear to go with and totally pulled the whole thing together.  ^_^

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Toddler Star Wars Shoes
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436608.msg5261489#msg5261489
Brief Description: I found a pair of black canvas shoes at walmart that were calling out to me to be painted.  So I snagged a pair for my daughter and painted them up as a Christmas present.  Super excited for her to be able to were a pair of Star Wars shoes soon, especially since she is starting to be able to walk in shoes.  (She's almost 14 mos)  The shoes were painted with fabric paints, sometimes watered down with water to get the desired effect.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Halloween Hair clips
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436611.msg5261529#msg5261529
Brief Description: I wanted to make my daughter some Halloween hairclips this year.  I found my stash of cheap halloween rings that had spiders and bats.  I cut off the ring portion, and grabbed my trusty hot glue gun.  I glued the ribbon to metal clip first, and then the spider/bat to the clip.  Super easy and fast to make!

Thanks everyone!  Smiley

I LOVE these!! So dang cute! Shoe painting is something I've wanted to try for quite a while but I'm scared  Shocked

Maybe you should try something small first, like baby shoes like I did here.  I find painting smaller scale is easier for me than a larger scale.  ^_^

I am going to need some action shots of your little cutie when she gets them on her feet!

I will definitely add some action shots when she can wear 'em!
14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Gnome Sweet Gnome on: November 05, 2014 10:07:13 AM
Yay!  A completed cross stitch!  They seem to me my nemisis lately!  I've been working on one for my husband since near the beginning of the year and its still not done.  Lately it's been eluding me further by completely hiding itself somewhere in the house.  But, anyways, I digress.  I made this little guy for the Enchanted Forest swap for my partner Silentblair (who is total awesomesauce, btw).  Anywho, here it is, in all its completed glory:

Of course, I cannot take credit for the design, just the blood, sweat, and tears that went into the stitching.  The totally adorable pattern came from etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/182360575/gnome-sweet-gnome-cross-stitch-pattern?ref=shop_home_active_15
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Thumbprint Tree for Guestbook on: November 05, 2014 09:56:47 AM
My best friend's sister contacted me and asked if I would draw her a tree for their guestbook for people to stamp their thumbprints onto.  Its all the rage right now.  ^_^  I'm not the greatest at drawing, but I think I managed pretty well!  It was fun to make, too!  I started in pencil for the rough outlines and then went over it it all in a permanent pen.  Its all on a thick artist board.

Here is the completed project, with the thumbprints and framed:

And before the thumbprints:

And a couple WIP shots:

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Briella's St. Patrick's Day Outfit on: November 05, 2014 09:36:55 AM
I made this little outfit for my daughter for St. Patrick's day (yes, it was forever ago, I know.  ^_^).

I started with a white onsie and stitched on 4 hearts in different green patterned fabrics to make shamrocks and then embroidered on the stems.  It was really easy to do!  Though, I think adding interfacing to the back of each next time would make it much easier!

The leggings were adult knee high socks with the feet cut off and then zigzagged sewn to make it ruffly looking.  I love making those leggings for her, she has a ton!

For the flower on the headband, I started with a circular piece of felt and then went round and round with a ruffled ribbon, hot gluing it in place at each little turn, in a circle and added a button and a jewel in the middle.
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Weather Peg People on: November 05, 2014 09:21:57 AM
Wow, I've totally sucked at posting my projects this year!  Here's one that I did earlier this year for the OWS 100 (yeah, it was that long ago!  lol!)  I made weather peg people for Breegy.

These little guys were painted with acyrlic paints and then sprayed with a couple layers of clear coat.  Kinda like the natural wood look after they were all done.  Their crowns are made from wool felt and glued on.  I think I will need to make a set of weather peg people for my own daughter someday!

Thanks for looking!

19  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Baby Ewok Costume on: November 05, 2014 07:32:43 AM
We decided to go Star Wars this year for Halloween.  Hubby and I were Jedi's and our 13 month old girl was an Ewok.  I bought the bear costume at a local consignment store for like $5 and then made the headpiece and spear to go with.  The spear is a stick with a felt arrowhead and leather cording on the end.  The headpiece was essentially a long rectangle with the edges sewn over, ear and head holes cut and zigzagged sewn, and then some embroidery here and there.  It was all super easy and quick to make.

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
20  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Hair Clips on: November 05, 2014 07:23:43 AM
I made this set of hair clips for my daughter.  The little figures were originally those cheapo halloween rings.  I just snipped the ring part off and glued them onto the ribbon covered clips.  Super easy and super cute!

Thanks for looking!  ^_^
