Cute!  I just made some pillows with a similar fabric!

Really?  That's too funny b/c I used another piece of the sheet for a pillow!



Not the best pic of it.  But the other side is carebears.  Smiley

3  Strawberry Shortcake bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lady dee on: January 16, 2008 11:20:30 AM
I made a bag for my best friend for Christmas combining some of her favorite things.

1. Strawberry shortcake- she loves her & since I had some vintage sheets lying around, I decided to use it to line the bag as well as the detail on the pocket.

2. Apricot & Hopsalot (Strawberry Shortcake character)-  We volunteer at an animal shelter & spend a lot of time with the homeless bunnies so Hopsalot made me think of that.

3. Orange & cordoroy.  Just some other of her favorites I incorporated with this fabric I found at the thrift store (one of our favorite places). Smiley

And on to the pictures.  I'm rather new at sewing and I used my purse as a model of what I wanted to make.
 
This is the front of the bag:


and the back:


the side:


the inside:


and detail of the pocket:

4  It's a me, Mario! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by lady dee on: November 29, 2007 12:06:35 PM
I'm new to this polymer clay thing but once I started, I was instantly addicted!  Here is my latest creation, an incense burner for my husband for Xmas.



and here (pardon the horrible pic), you can see the incense goes into the pipe.



I think I may add a little turtle or goomba out by the mushroom too.  hmm...

Just wanted to share!  My friend & I have been working on other polymer Xmas gifts so once I give them out, I'll be sure to post up the pics! I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone!

thanks for looking everybody!   Smiley

these are lovely!!!

yep to tassles.

what are the tags you've put on them?

the tags on them are "handmade with love" tags that i made up for all my handmade gifts this year.  I used vellum & scrap scrapbooking paper & eyelets to make them. 

here's a closer look at them:

what's the colors that you used for your friend Kae's scarf.  those colors are very pretty.

I used Soft Boucle Yarn by Bernat in these two shades:

Soft Taupe and Westport Shades

I picked it up at AcMoore.  I really like the colors you used on your scarf too!

7  Subversive Inspired Cross Stitch Gift~ possibly offensive language? in Needlework: Completed Projects by lady dee on: December 18, 2006 12:04:54 PM
So i made this for my best friend for xmas.  It was inspired by the Subversive Cross Stitch stuff but we have our own special spelling for Bee*otch & i made up my own design & popped it into a frame with some scrapbooking paper as a background.  What do you think?  It was really easy & i can't wait to make more!

8  Monkey Party for my husband's 30th! (pics!!!) in Party Planning by lady dee on: December 13, 2006 07:34:32 AM
Well my husband turned 30 a few weeks ago & he absolutely LOVES monkeys so after some brainstorming with 2 of my friends, we came up with the idea to throw him a Jungle Party.  We had lots of great ideas and I wanted to share them in case anybody needed any inspiration.  : )

IDEAS:
1. the Monkey Cake.  My friend Tish gets all the credit for this one.  She's fabulous, escecially when it comes to cakes.  I just gave her the monkey idea & she ran with it.  She even went into as much detail as to putting some "poo" in the monkey's hand to fling at people.  ha*ha.  My husband wanted a strawberry cake so she made the Monkey out of Strawberry cake & the rest is chocolate with a strawberry filling.





2. Monkey Cupcakes.  I actually got this idea by searching the web.  http://buzzville.typepad.com/buzzville/2005/05/monkey_party_re.html and http://mylittlemochi.typepad.com/my_little_mochi/2005/05/monkey_see_monk.html#comments



This was our version of them.  I used a great recipe i found here as well.  The came out REALLY yummy!  VERY buttery but very good.
http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=recipe3540138&layout=martha

3.  We like to have some sort of "photo op" spot at our parties so we made 3 monkey cut outs & had a sign that said "we saw, heard, & spoke no evil at gary's 30th birthday".  Everyone got a chance to pose with the birthday boy then, there was a craft station with foam monkey frames (http://www.orientaltrading.com/application?namespace=browse&origin=searchMain.jsp&event=link.itemDetails&demandPrefix=12&sku=48/3748&mode=Searching&erec=1&D=monkey%2Bframe&Ntt=monkey%2Bframe&Ntk=all&Dx=mode%252bmatchallpartial&Ntx=mode%252bmatchallpartial&N=0&sd=MONKEY+PHOTO+MAGNET+CRAFT+KIT ) that they could make & take home as mementos.  We used a mini photo printer & our digi cameras to take the pics. 





This is the "craft station":


4. Name Tags
I got name tags and jungle-y stickers and people made their own tags for their cups.

5. Drinks
I made Jungle-y drinks like "hawaiian punch" & brass monkeys and "tipsy island".

6. i put out animal crackers but i found that adults don't like those so much. i'm sure it would be a big hit with kids though!

7. LOTS of Monkey decorations.  I found most stuff on OrientalTrading.com, the $ store, & party city.  We made some stuff too. 







and here are my wonderful friends that helped me out so much!  i love them both.  : )

9  Amigurimi*inspired Finger Puppets in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by lady dee on: December 11, 2006 09:29:13 AM
So I'm totally in love with those cute Amigurumi dolls & when I was in Japan over the summer, I even picked up a few craft books to get started.  Since I'm a beginner at crochet, i need a lot of practice.  And to get to the point, while I was 'practicing', I had a gift idea for my friend's 2 year old. 

(I couldn't help posting his pic b/c he's just too cute!)

Finger puppets!! 





and here's me with them...


I was going to add googly eyes & such but thought better of it b/c he might eat them.  Instead I used felt for the features and sewed everything together with embroidery floss.  I know they don't look the best, I'm still learning!  Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.  : )  They were actually very quick and easy to make. 

Side note:  I also made the "made with love" tag. I made a few scarfs & other things for xmas gifts as well & i thought they added a nice touch to each of the gifts. Sometimes, it's the little things....

10  Bubbly Pillows-first project on my brand new sewing machine! (w/ pics of course) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by lady dee on: October 27, 2006 07:35:02 AM
So my husband bought me a sewing machine for my birthday & i decided to make some nice big fluffy floor pillows for the room we are redecorating.  The room is going to be 'never never land' so we remember to always stay 'young at heart'.  we are going to store our toy collection there & it will also be where friends can gather to play atari 2600, nes, or sega genesis games or one of our many board games!  with that said, we are trying to make it as fun & comfy as possible.  i think these pillows will fit right in. 





The green side is nice soft flannel.  The print side is just fun. 

What do you think?
