Gozer, I love that scarf!  I'm so gonna have to make one!! (or two, or three, ...)

I've missed you all, so I've decided to jump on in!  Its been a busy month of crafting for me, and I've started with my christmas present crafting as well.  So, here we go!  I'm gonna join Team Multimedia this semester.  Warning, there is gonna be a lot of projects incoming!

Prompt:  September - Solitaire

Project Name: Pink Ruffle Scarves
Brief Description: So this project used one main thing to make it:  FLEECE!  I have so much fleece at the house, despite that I found a remnant at the fabric store for this wonderful neon pink fleece.  I had no idea what I was going to do with it when I bought it, but I quickly found a purpose.  Scarves!  These three beauties are for my daughter, and two nieces, who are 14 mo, 16 mo, and 18 mo currently.  They are for christmas presents.

Project Name: Wool shorties
Brief Description: I've been having nightime leaking issues with baby bean, now that she has a bigger bladder and can put out more liquid during the night.  So, in my research, I've read that wool shorties, which is essentially a wool diaper cover that goes over a prefold or fitted cloth diaper, works wonders for containing leaks.  So, I found a pattern for these online and went out and found some wool sweaters.  These two are made from a felted cashmere sweater.  So soft!  I sewed it, and then had to lanolize the wool before use.  I haven't had a chance to fully test these out for nighttime yet, but she is currently trying it out for her nap right now.  Hopefully this will be the solution we've been searching for!

Project Name: Sock Monkeys!
Brief Description: I've made sock monkeys before, for my niece and nephew, but now I have new littles, whom I love oh so much, that need them!  I made these ones a little differently that I've made mine in the past, and I kinda like the new ones better.  I've made three so far, using socks from my stash that I bought forever about with the intention of making sock monkeys, but never did.  Until now!  These are for my daughter, two nieces, whom are all under 2.  I made my nephew a sock monkey this summer for his birthday, and his little sister found it on my bed and pulled into her pack n play and snuggled it as she slept.  Obviously, she needed one.  And now she will have her own come christmas!  I used this tutorial: http://www.craftpassion.com/2012/04/how-to-sew-sock-monkey.html

Project Name: Toddler Scarves
Brief Description: More scarves for my babies!  I saw a picture of one online, but I couldn't find a tutorial for one, so I just figured it out myself, which wasn't hard.  I will post a tute when I get a chance.  I love these because they are adjustable, and thus will grow nicely with them.  Its nice that they will get to use these for more than a season before they outgrow 'em.  It has black fleece on the front, and white fleece on the back, following the its different one each side for this prompt.  ^_^  More christmas presents done!  They were fast to make, and I got 'em done this weekend.

Project Name: Baby Ewok
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436612.0
Brief Description: For Halloween this year, we decided to go star wars.  Hubby and I were Jedis, and baby bean was an ewok.  I cheated and bought the bear costume, but made the head piece and spear to go with.  The headpiece was essentially a rectangle, with a head and ear holes that I zigzagged around the openings to keep from fraying and then added some embroidery stitching.  The spear is a stick from our year with a felt spear head and some leather cording I had on hand.  Very easy Halloween costume!

Prompt:  October - Haunted House

Project Name: Spooky Hairclips
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436611.0
Brief Description: I had some Halloween plastic rings with spiders and bats that I bought a couple of years ago, and decided to make baby bean some creepy crawly hair clips for Halloween.  Its a metal alligator type clip, covered in ribbon and then the plastic critter glued on (sans the ring portion).  They were super easy and quick to make.

Project Name: Star Wars Toddler Shoes
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436608.0
Brief Description: I was in Walmart last month when I happened upon some plain black canvas toddler shoes.  They were totally calling out to me to be painted.  I bought the next size up for my little miss so they could be christmas presents for her.  I ended up on doing a star wars theme, because what little girl doesn't need star wars shoes, right?!  They are painted using tulip fabric paint, and sometimes watered down with water.  I've found out though that the soft tulip fabric paint, when in contact with water, becomes glittery.  I'm unsure why this happens, but it works for my daughter's shoes.  ^_^

I got distracted with crafting for Christmas this week, so I didn't get much done for the swap, other than what I did last weekend/early in the week. I will definitely be finishing up this weekend such I got such a good start.

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.

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.

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!

47  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: Toddler Star Wars Shoes on: November 05, 2014 10:17:39 AM
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!
48  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
49  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!  ^_^
50  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.
