1  Soft Jingle Blocks in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by bami on: November 02, 2008 01:16:43 PM
These blocks are great for babies and also for using up interesting remnants of fabric and ribbon!

You need 6 squares of fabric, 12cm x 12cm (about 4 1/2 inches)
Try to use different textures and colours to make it interesting for baby, but fabric that complements each other.
Scraps of ribbon, for 'tags'
3 jingley bells (or you could make shaker ones instead)
toy stuffing or similar.

Sew up the cube inside out, leaving one side unsewn - don't forget to sew in ribbon randomly on edges.

Turn cube ride side out, hiding seams inside. Stuff with wadding/stuffing and hide three bells or the shaker in the middle.

On the last edge, fold fabric in on itself and hand sew with clear cotton to hide the stitches etc.

They are cute, they come on ABC in Australia as they are a kids show, but I enjoy watching it too - it's quite funny!

4  Keroppi Frog - soft toy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by bami on: March 31, 2007 01:09:19 AM
April is a crazy month for birthdays here, my husbands, his dad, sister and niece all were born in April. I had bought everyone's gift except my sister-in-laws and was pretty much broke with no idea what to get her anyway. She loves frogs, so I made her this!

It's all hand sewn, a bit wonky/scrappy in places but I hope she likes it for the time it took me!

All I did was find a picture of Keroppi on Google, blew it up to A4 size, and used it as a pattern! It's stuffed with wadding. I'm happy with how it turned out. It's the first time I've attempted anything like it.

5  Mens Shirt -> Womens Shirt, my first one! (Lots of photos!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bami on: March 31, 2007 01:02:27 AM
After marveling at the mens shirts -> womens long shirt reconstructions, I finally attempted one myself. Inspired by the recent mechanic dress reconstruction (see http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=158076.msg1583128#msg1583128), and thanks to Big W having an clearance sale = $3 shirts, I got to work!


(sorry about the blurry photos, my camera battery was just about dead!)

Close up of the patches on the front:

and the funky back:


I am really happy with the result, it took less than half an hour - I was amazed! And it fits perfectly - hooray!!!

6  4yr olds toy reconstruction in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by bami on: March 27, 2007 11:07:37 PM
My 4yr old son made this lighthouse today, using an old bowl, an empty roll from clingwrap, and a torch. Hahaha. Oh well, pretty good for a 4 year old I reckon..

Here he is saying "Beeeyoody Mate!"

Had to share my clever little craftsters work! He came up with the idea himself, he just came to me asking for help to sticky tape it together hehehe.

I got the Idiots guide to Sewing from the library today, hopefully will get some time to read it tonight...

I finished my pattern. I'm not happy with the shirt, but I am happy with how I went considering it was my first pattern attempt. I just used up scraps so the shirt looks crap, but here's a pic anyway... no laughing....

Saw these curtains at the op shop:

and turned them into:

Used a pair of pants I already own to draw a pattern for them. I am happy they turned out!
