35  My little superheroes in Stenciling: Completed Projects by dooney on: July 07, 2009 01:02:50 PM
I made these Captain America shirts for 4th of July for my kids.

I taped off 1" stripes on the bottom half of the shirts and then used my screen instead of a brush.
Did the same with a paper star.

So I guess it's technically silkscreening, but the SS board is... kinda dead,
and also way more detail-y. I'd feel like a n00b.

(Just wanted to show off my lil guy)

My big lil guy (he's mad because I'm holding his toy bus)

Now he has the bus

He thinks he's smiling.

Tired after a long day of fighting villains.

I heat-set these and sent them for a spin in the dryer to soften them up,
but Co's amazing superpower acidy spit made the blue bleed a little into the star.
DH said I'll have to make a new one.
I laughed at him.

37  I got to make something girly! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dooney on: June 21, 2009 01:49:25 PM
I made this outfit for a friend's little girl who turned one.

It's a top and capris that can unroll down into pants.

The top is made with this tutorial - well, I went, saw the pictures, and said "oh, that's how!" and went to it.
Then I came back for measurements, since my kids are 2 and 5 months so I couldn't use them for sizing.
It's a little different, but many thanks for the tutorial!

This cord had been saved for a special occasion because there wasn't much of it.
It's varied-wale and very soft, not stiff like regular corduroy.
I made a little fake fly and added a daisy button.
Man, I should have ironed these.
But it was SO HOT, I just couldn't bear to.

Teeny butt pockets.
The wales match up with the pants, completely on accident.

Here's the cuff.
The elastic hides inside when the cuff is rolled down.

Notice how I still don't like to touch pink.
However, the pants are a little more purpley in real life.
Hope you like!
Maybe someday I'll have a little girl...

38  Riding the potty train! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by dooney on: April 25, 2009 03:05:42 PM
So my son K started showing serious interest in using the potty, so we went with it. I was talking with a friend and K was nearby. He heard the phrase "potty train" and he thought that was pretty darn cool. My kid loves all things trains. I'm not sure how to explain to a 26-month-old that it's not something he gets to ride, but it's still something he reeeeally wants to do. So I made him these.

back

Some details. I had to use the blue for contrast because the orange thread I have doesn't match.

I am in love with this stitch. The trim is just knit from a t-shirt.

They have the real "big boy" fly, not that he'd ever use it. The kid must be completely naked from the waist down or he can't pee.

I want to find some better-looking underwear elastic. I think I'm going to harvest the waistbands from DH's when they wear out in, ahem, other places.

The little underwear model

I find piles like this all over my house.

39  I may never spounce again! in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by dooney on: April 21, 2009 06:36:59 PM
So I tried the screen printing thing a few years ago, failed on my first attempt, and gave up. I've been stenciling for a long time, and there's one I do over and over and I thought it would be so much easier and faster to have it on a screen. But my chemicals long ago expired or dried up or got lost or spilled, I can't remember. So I started playing around. I grabbed this little guy from my stack of freezer paper stencils I never cut out, cut him out, and ironed him onto the bottom of my screen instead of onto the shirt. Boom, owls on everything! I was able to wash and reuse the screen with the owl still on it. I wouldn't recommend washing too often, though.

managed to catch this pic as it was blowing off the fence, lol

40  Chocolate-drizzled caramel corn from scratch in Dessert by dooney on: April 13, 2009 02:53:02 PM
My dad bought this tiny bag of caramel corn drizzled with chocolate, and it was kind of expensive but so good! His birthday is today, so I thought, I can make him some of that stuff!
Here's what I did:

Preheat the oven to 275 F
Make 1 cup of popcorn. You can heat it a little at a time in 2 Tbsp oil in a pan over high heat, or airpop it, or make two bags of microwave popcorn and take a little out. Remove all unpopped kernels.
Grease a roasting pan or two cake pans, and put the popcorn in them in the oven to keep it warm.
You'll need:
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 regular package chocolate chips, divided in half

Melt the butter in a large saucepan and add the brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Stir well, bring to a boil, and continue cooking for 5 minutes without stirring. Turn the heat off and stir in the baking soda and vanilla. Pour it over the popcorn, distributing evenly. Bake for 15-25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

Spread caramel corn out on wax paper. Melt half of the chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until smooth. Dip a spoon in the chocolate and drizzle over caramel corn. Let cool and turn as much of it over as you can (it will be in clumps) and repeat, drizzing the other side. Let cool and store in an airtight container.

with walnuts: add nuts or other additions to the sauce before pouring over popcorn, or else it won't all stick together.

both

close-up: the chocolate was still melty
