51  Dryad Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lovething on: September 01, 2006 08:41:31 AM
My boyfriend plays in a D&D larp and they needed a dryad for a recent campout. Here's what I came up with:







Can you tell I had fun modeling it? The dress was made without a pattern. It's just a square skirt with a tube top and braided straps. I'm particularly proud of the colors because it was my first attempt at dip dying and I'm thrilled with the way it turned out. All the flowers and leaves were a pain in the booty to sew on but I think it was worth it.

52  self esteem mirror for my boy (mature language) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by lovething on: September 01, 2006 07:15:21 AM
My boyfriend is wonderful, but he's not the most confident guy. I'm always telling him that he rocks and he should think so every time he looks in the mirror. So for his birthday I thought this would be appropriate:

I bought a $10 gold framed mirror, made a contact paper stencil and covered it with etching cream. I had some problems with the cream spreading under the stencil a bit and making smudgy looking marks around the lettering but I don't think it's too noticeable. Overall I'm satisfied with it. Does anyone know how I can avoid that smudging thing in the future? I'd like to try a few more glass etching projects soon.

I'm giving it to him today. Hopefully he'll like it.

*little update: He loved the mirror. It's now displayed proudly in his bedroom.  Smiley

I made a little pillowcase dress from a gorgeous Ralph Lauren pillowcase I found at a thrift store yesterday. I used the wonderful tutorial on Rostitchery's blog. Thanks Rostitchery!




Now I want one for myself   Wink

54  four seasons button book in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lovething on: May 27, 2006 09:13:04 PM
I made this felt button book for my 2-year-old daughter. Each page represents a different season. For each page there is a pocket full of little felt shapes she can fasten onto the page using the buttons. This way she can arrange and rearrange the pictures any way she wants. It was pretty easy and inexpensive to make. Just needed some felt, buttons, hot glue, cute printed fabric from the remnants bin, and some scrap denim and ribbon. She loves it. It's great to take on trips when I need her to stay occupied for a while.



The pages before they were sewn together (Fall is my favorite one):


Fall page without the felt shapes:

55  Pink Bunny Egg Holders in Easter by lovething on: April 12, 2006 12:38:46 PM
I made five of these sleepy little critters for our Easter breakfast table:



They're super easy (I'm all about simplicity when it comes to crafting) and only took about 10 minutes to make a set of 5.

56  Dress Up Magnets in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lovething on: April 11, 2006 10:48:11 AM
This is what my little one will find in her Easter basket this year:



I turned a photo of her into a magnet and made little outfits she can stick to  herself (a fairy, a cheerleader and a pirate). This makes a great personalized gift for kids but I know of a few adults who would love them too.  Wink

57  Re: Old CDs / AOL CDs / AOL CD Cases in What the heck can I do with THIS? by lovething on: February 09, 2006 02:06:53 PM
Okay I just sort of skimmed through all the posts so I'm sorry if this idea was already posted, but I used one of the tin CD cases to make a mini scrapbook for my boyfriend as an anniversary present. I found the tutorial here: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_scrapbooking/article/0,2025,DIY_13776_3378530,00.html
But I didn't end up needing half of the supplies they listed. Just some sandpaper, primer, paint, varnish, and lots of photos, cardstock, ribbon and stickers. They so fun to customize.

59  Floral Fairy Wings in Completed Projects by lovething on: January 28, 2006 10:16:36 AM
I loved these wings from Willowtech House (http://willowtechhouse.com/img/tpwings1.jpg) but they're way expensive, so I decided to make some. These were for my daughter, but I loved them so much I'm going to make a pair for myself. Hers don't have the holes in them because I didn't have any incense at the time but I'll add them to my own.

*Edit: Forgot to say where I got the tutorial. You can find it here: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_kid_crafts/article/0,1789,HGTV_3256_3751334,00.html




Here you can see the front where the ribbons are tied.

I'll try to post more pics when I make my own.
