4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Shower gifts from my new neice! on: February 03, 2007 07:12:30 PM
I was feeling creative so I made a few things for the shower. I live 3,000 miles away and cannot make the shower so I hope she likes everything! The onesies are simple cheap onesies with colorful fabric pieces appliqued on. I especially like the Vera Bradley, Mom bought her a diaper bag in the same pattern. The burp cloths are of $2.00 a yard super flannel from Wal-Mart, and I made 4, 2 with pink thread and 2 with purple. I also made 2 paci/toy holders (ribbon, snaps and mitten clips) but forgot to take photos. I bundled it all in a pretty box decoupaged with pink rose wrapping paper and sent it out. Can't wait to hear her reaction!
 
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Introducing Monster Boy! on: February 03, 2007 07:02:15 PM
My 5 YO named him. He's made of some orange fake fur I acquired as a remnant, with fleece eyes machine appliqued on. He is supposed to stop nightmares from bothering my kidlet, but as yet he has not learned his place. Kidlet believes that this is because he has no mouth. He may be right. At any rate, he is quite loved and has a happy place to sleep each night wrapped up in 5 year old love. I have a smallish scrap left over to make one more for kid #2. Perhaps I will give this monster a mouth. He is my first foray into stuffie land and I am proud!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Non-gender typed baby boy stuff on: January 14, 2007 10:29:51 PM
Thanks! Ummm... it was really simple. I use acrylic paints, mostly because they're cheap. And foam brushes for the same reason (but just for the big stuff) I painted the cloth first, it was a floor cloth bought at Michael's and it came in a tube. One side was already primed. So you just paint what you want on it (in my case the stripes and oval) and then I cut the bottom into scallops. Then hot glue the top around a dowel that you've already painted and glued end stoppers on, and add coordinating ribbon to hang with. I've since added a bow to the top, too, I had forgotten about it at first. For the words I print from my computer and use xfer paper. I wish I had calligraphy skills. I've also made a few for gifts (smaller stretched canvases with initials) and they're a HUGE hit. Super easy and fun. HTH!!

We didn't know what we were having until my daughter was born, so we had to be neutral. That said, I love that we went with an "undersea" theme. It's easy to find stuff, and easy to make, too, and the stuff is every different color scheme from primary to pastels.

Here's a picture of the wallhanging I made for her (it, at the time.) I made it out of a 24"x36" floor cloth, dowel rod, decorative end thingies and ribbon. Oh, and paint. And little  dried starfish hot glued on. I'm really proud of it, and it was SOOOO easy.

I put Giant Tropical Millipedes in mine. Smiley

But could you maybe use some glass paint and light and make a lamp?

Those are awesome! I've seen the chests, but never thought to see if they nest. What a great way to make all three of her obsessions go together!
