21  Thirty-One Inspired Onesies! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: January 27, 2015 10:21:06 AM
So I have a good friend who sells Thirty-One.... Because in todays world who doesn't know someone that sells it?! Am I right?! Well my friend was surprised when she found out about her 4th Baby Girl last year and when she was born just a couple weeks ago my friend asked if she could give me some old fabric swatches to decorate a few onesies for the new baby! (My girl friend ins a Director in Thirty-One)

So here is what I made! I used my Cricut to cut out 31 and the Heart and I also used my Cricut Explore to make an Iron on of the Thirty-One logo for a third onesie!

Here is a shot of the Fabric Swatches and Stencil. i used Heat n Bond on the back and then stitched around it on the onesie that wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be since knit gives...

I know this is kind of short and simple but I made it while I was in the middle of a 2 week virus/flu bug.... Turning on my machine was hard enough! But for the beginning of the year I figured it was a good start of my crafting for 2015!

I'm SO very sorry I didn't post sooner! October is chaotic in our house! I had birthdays, vendor events, and on top of it all sickness! I LOVED the hoop I received! I know she posted pictures but I have one of it from my mantel where it is prominently placed!

This morning I finally had time to go through the entire gallery! I LVOE everything! Once this hectic year is over I'm hoping with the new year I'll have more "free time" to be a little better about being able to participate in swaps! I think for now I just need to watch ::::sad sigh::::

I received some of the most amazing twinchies from my swap partner katara! I live near the ocean and my 5 month old's room is sea-themed... so these are awesome! Best part was on the card she sent was little diagrams to make more! I am going to make another and then frame the four! Thank You SO much for these AMAZING sea-themed twinchies!

Ok so I received at the beginning of the week but this has been a crazy week! My Mini just finished her first year of Preschool! Yesterday was her last day and there I am crying as she says goodbye to her teachers! It was so bittersweet! And now we are preparing to say goodbye to daddy for a week tomorrow as he leaves for business on the East Coast... I am stocking up on wine! Being the first time it's just me and the girls for a whole week!

I did received the most amazing doll from MamaTrader! She sent such a lovely letter that really sent me to tears! Rumina is made out of a stick from the playground she takes her son to and a onesie from a friends baby girl and a piece of scarf that was her grandmother's. She is the most amazing doll! When I opened the package the scent of lavender was just coming out of the envelope.... little did she know I was having the hardest second day with the girls... my 4 month old had been crying for 2 days straight with no naps and my 3.5yo was just non stop talking... Rumina is my spirit doll of lactation... as I am nursing my baby and I stress  sometimes about it ending too early... so here she is

Thank you so much! She is sitting on my breast pump and greets me every time I pump... which is quite often! She still has her lavender scent but I have some lavender oil from Maui, from the lavender gardens there and I am going to use it to keep her scent going! Thank you so much!

26  "Elsa Monroe" (Warning: Pic Heavy) in Needlework: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: May 29, 2014 09:33:25 AM
This is what happens when your 3.5 year old watches "Frozen"  every day of the week... and sometimes asks to watch it a second time in the same day! You begin seeing Anna and Elsa everywhere! When I first saw the picture of Marilyn I was trying to figure out what I could change about her slightly without completely changing the picture... Just then "Let it Go" started playing in the movie and as I looked up and watched Elsa change in the movie I totally looked down at the print out I had of the Marilyn and started turning her into Elsa!

She measures just about 6"x12". She is in a 12"x16" frame

I changed her hair just slightly to look better with a braid coming down. I also had to change the top of the dress from a halter to a sweetheart. And then also added the flowing sleeves and cape to the dress. I used a shiny metallic DMC floss... which might I add is a b***ch to work with... Definitely not my favorite, but it looks so nice! For her hair I used a couple different yellows. At times I would use one or the other and for quite a bit I used strands of each together so it would blend nicely.

For the detail in the breezy skirt I used 3 different flosses. 1 strand of white, the pale blue metallic, and a strand of the blue/teal I used for the main color of the dress. I wanted the breezy detail to look like the underneath of the dress. It showed all the colors at slightly different places... It worked out better than I thought it would!

For her shoes I used yet another metallic floss and then when it was completed I thought hey why not add some sparkly beads to those shoes?! It became the only beaded portion. I had thought of adding more to the dress, but I didn't want to hide any of those little detail stitches.

Sorry, I tried getting the best photos, but last night I thought they had a little too much yellow in some and today the lighting wasn't best outside... So I tried to use the best from both photos... I thought the shoes photo from night was more true to color than the one from the day, but I included both!

I used colored pencils to lightly color in the dress and to highlight her hair and skin tone. Here is a picture of her a little more closely...

This is her in the frame I found at Target... It actually opens so you can change out the picture and store more inside the frame (like a little folder)... I am actually thinking about changing the same Marilyn to look like Anna from the movie so that way I have a set. That way I can change it out from time to time.

I hope you like this... well I know I LOVE it! And I'm not one to hang too much of my own work, much less frame it! This is the largest piece I have ever embroidered! I learned a few things to do differently next time. Also I fused fleece to the back of it. It added a nice "cushy" look close up. And hid the fact that I forgot to put a stabilizer on the back first... it helped to hide some of the "puckering" that occurred... Like I said I learned a few things for next time!

Here's some of the "night" photos, before I added a little colored pencil...

Here is the original image and my drawing of how I altered it:

I received 2 lovely flags from rscowtown! She used my love of the ocean/beach and my words "create" and "love". She printed on the fabric and each actually has a second fabric in the back so when the breeze blows you see the back fabric as well!

They both have beading and the printing! I love them and already actually have them hanging in my backyard! Thank you so very much rscowtown!

My partner rscowtown has been very busy lately... so I thought I would go ahead and post the photos I took of the flags I made for her!

I used a piece of vinyl to add the words.... I totally forgot how I was going to get the words on while I worked. The dragonfly and butterfly are stuffs and I stitched them on.

Everything was made out of scraps I had... And I couldn't help but embroider every cloud with whisps... I am so happy that she loves them!

I received from Abbeeroad on Friday, but I was getting ready for a Baby Shower I threw yesterday and just finally got some rest and downtime today! Here are the awesome Disney and Woodland themed patches she made for me!

The fox is actually a piece of silk screened fabric she received from SheepBlue! These are awesome patches! Little did she know I will be at the "Magical Kingdom" this Thursday for our 4-Year Wedding Anniversary! So the kissing Mickey and Minnie are so fitting! I might just have to pin it to my bag for the day!
