1  Soft Bots in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Flea on: October 01, 2008 06:17:58 PM
More toys for Baby Showers! The Girl bots go to twins just born to our friends, their Dad is a big computer and ham radio geek. They were a big hit at the shower.

The boy bots were ordered by someone at the shower for a new baby and his 2 year old brother.

The rainbow patch on the Grey robot is a pocket, I remembered to take a picture of the back of these ones:

All made from scraps of random fabric and trims. But fully washable, a must for kids!

2  The hungry thing in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Flea on: October 01, 2008 06:09:22 PM
I love to give toys as gifts.....this guy is going to a friends baby shower. He has no name yet but as you can see, he is a very hungry thing! He is made from knit fabric scraps. The mouth unzips and he "eats" the cake, pumpkin and gingerbread man.

Hope you think he is as funny as I do!

3  Little girl's fancy dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Flea on: August 06, 2006 11:21:24 PM
My daughter outgrew her favorite fancy dress, so I HAD to make her a new one!

She had to have it to dance at our state fair on Friday, her Uncle's band was playing and this was the only way to convince her not to play drums too!  The buckles on her stroller tore some holes in the tulle, but I'm just going to sew another layer on top to hide them.  I don't think she will mind more fluff Smiley
This is the first piece of clothing I have sewn without a pattern.  I think it turned out O.K., but I wish the waist was a little higher.  Oh well, it is a learning experience and my girl loves it so I will call it a success!
Thanks for looking, LSE

4  soccer duffel in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Flea on: June 13, 2006 04:04:15 PM
I promised my son I would make him a bag to carry all his soccer gear.  He picked out the fabric and strap.

It is based on a bag from 21 Terrific Patchwork Bags by Susan Briscoe (My fave bag book)  It's about 20 in. by 8 in. by 8 in.  Plenty big enough to hold all his junk.

He thinks it is very cool and we definitely won't get it mixed up with any one else's bag!

5  Hungry Frog in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Flea on: June 13, 2006 03:52:19 PM
I wanted to make something fun for my daughter's third birthday.  She loves to put things inside bags, pockets, etc.  So this is the hungry frog....he has a zipper mouth.

I also made three bugs for him to eat.  They were lots more fun to make but took about six times as long!  Too much hand sewing!

He makes me laugh but I think the next one I make I will add a tongue Smiley
Thanks for looking, LSE

6  2 flowered bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Flea on: March 25, 2006 11:07:46 PM
I just sent this off to sell at a local boutique......note to self, take better pictures next time!  I like the funky bright flowers.  It is lined with the same blue as the handles with 2 pockets.  My own pattern but inspired by one I bought.

This one went away to sell also but I wish I could keep it.  The flower is made from the scraps from one of my maternity shirts, I love the color!  This one is also my own pattern.

Thanks for looking!

I had to share my son's cake from last year.  Much less elaborate than what you have been describing, but he had great fun.  I am much better at baking the cake than decorating it so I let him do it.  Liam said he wanted a battle so we carved out some terrain and he set up all the(washed!) men and added the blood.  It kept him from asking "When will everyone get here?" for at least an hour!!

8  Crazy Quilt Stocking in Needlework: Completed Projects by Flea on: January 07, 2006 09:58:16 PM
This is what I made my mom for Christmas.  She made all of us kids stockings when we were little and was using an old one of mine, but now she has one just for her!  This is my first real piece of crazy quilting I've done and I want to thank kiwikrafter for her help/inspiration.  I used lots of scraps from my stash and some vintage hankies for the front and some cute Santa stamps fabric for the back.  Lined with muslin to make it a little sturdier.

I used one hankie with a nice edge for the cuff, and an applique from the backing fabric.

I even managed to work in a spider.  My mom doesn't like bugs, but she didn't even find it till 2 days later!  I also used a folded fabric flower leftover from another project.

My mom loved it so much she wouldn't give it back so I could take pictures until yesterday!  Thanks for looking. Smiley

9  Re: wine related gift box in Winter Holidays by Flea on: December 12, 2005 07:47:54 PM
I am sending a wine gift to my sister and brother-in-law.  Mine is in a bag and I didn't want to ship a wine bottle either so I made a stuffed wine bottle for their couch!

I measured a wine bottle to make a pattern, I used iron on transfer paper to make the label.  I think it turned out really cute!

10  old quilt, new post in Quilting: Completed Projects by Flea on: November 16, 2005 06:47:56 PM
I made this quilt about 2 years ago, before I knew of craftster. 

The pattern is Trip Around the World.  I made it for my Aunt who was visiting us (in Alaska, USA) from Australia I chose this pattern because she came from around the world and because during her visit she tripped down some stairs at my uncle's house and broke her neck!  She liked it a lot and used it quite a bit here, I don't think she uses it much at home, a little too warm.  This was my first project on my new sewing machine.  It came with a walking foot so I used it to make a diagonal gridfor the quilting.  The only problem was the one decorator fabric I pulled out of my stash to use.  Lots of skipped stitches, now I know I need an extra sharp needle.  I would definitely recommend a bernina!  Their classes I took on how to use my machine (after this quilt, of course!) were wonderfull.    -LSE-
