1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Anthro-Inspired Book Stack Necklace on: October 16, 2011 02:20:17 PM
I was thinking of making that exact necklace myself after seeing it on etsy.  You did a great job!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Alice in Wonderland Party (lots of pics) on: February 28, 2011 12:14:15 PM
Here are a few of the things I did for my daughter's first birthday party.


This is actually an "aftermath" photo, that shows the tissue paper pom poms that I made using this http://www.craftymoods.com/2011/01/cascading-garden-pom-poms.html tute.


Food!


Mini muffins and you can see the "eat me!" cookies too.


Stuck playing cards on the wall with tape.


Abselom is on the picture frame, Smiley  And then there's the chesire cat and the mad hatters hat of course.


And the crappy directions, lol.


Close up of the rose bushes.  I bought some odd white tulle tree thingys on clearance from Hobby Lobby and dyed them green, and painted the bases black.  Then I painted some white fabric roses red and hot glued them to the little "bushes."
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Alex in Wonderland! on: February 28, 2011 11:47:04 AM
For my daughter's first birthday party I did an Alice in Wonderland theme, except I called it Alex in Wonderland since her name is Alex, which you probably already figured out.  Smiley  This is the dress I made for her, I used the Tim Burton and Disney movies for inspiration.  I didn't use a pattern, I made it up myself.

Big ol' eyes!  The white rabbit button is one from my stash that I instantly knew had to be a part of this dress.


This is best picture I have of the front, she isn't a very cooperative model.  Smiley


Side view.  Something is wrong with a bit of the bias tape there, but I didn't realize it till at the party.  Undecided


The back.  I need to learn how to do zippers, because getting a squirmy baby into a lace up dress is quite a challenge!
4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Gir (from Invader Zim) toddler costume on: November 03, 2010 05:10:23 PM
That is so awesome!  I debated making my daughter Gir, but she doesn't give me enough time to make anything that complicated!  You did great! 
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Geisha baby! on: November 03, 2010 05:00:47 PM
Thanks!  I think she's pretty cute myself!  Cheesy  The "kimono" fabric is from a sheet I found at a thrift store.
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Geisha baby! on: November 02, 2010 04:53:10 PM
This was Alexandra's first Halloween so I wanted her to be something unique.  I was going to make her a troll doll but I ran out of time so when I came across a kimono top I had made awhile ago I decided to go with making her a geisha costume.  I added some length to the kimono top to make it a dress.  The sash is from a turtle neck and I made the "hair" out of black fleece.  It was a fun project!









7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Coming home outfit! on: February 09, 2010 09:18:56 PM
Thank you!  It was a fun project that helped get me back into the swing of things after a miserable month!  I think I will keep the skirt or at least bring it along and see how it looks. 
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Coming home outfit! on: February 09, 2010 05:58:35 PM
Well, my little girl is due Feb. 13th, but really she could be here any day now.  Hubby is hoping she'll be a Valentine baby, but at this point, I don't really care what day she gets here as long as it is soon!   Cheesy  Anyway, here is her coming home outfit.  I made the top and pants out of a felted, wool sweater and the red appliques and hood are fleece.  The skirt is actually a heart print, not polka dot.






This one actually captures the colors correctly.  My camera sucks.


Anyway, let me know what you think!  I'm thinking about ditching the skirt, but I'm not sure.  I was mostly concerned with it not being pink and frilly.  She might end up looking like a Valentine teddy bear, but who says that's a bad thing?  Cheesy



9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: fiber fat book--along on: January 20, 2010 10:19:31 PM
I love this idea!  It would be a great way for me to use up some of the tiny bits and pieces in my stash and it would be a good little therapy project for when I get frustrated with my other crafting ventures!
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Baby quilt! on: December 22, 2009 10:14:18 PM
Thanks!  I am definitely going to be doing more quilting, so I'll have to look into a darning foot as well.  Good tip about shopping online, it is much easier to control myself when I think about shipping prices!   Cheesy
