1  Pizza Supreme Costume in Halloween Costumes by yardenxanthe on: November 02, 2010 09:35:18 PM


My four year-old son had a few ideas for his Halloween costume this year, but he finally settled on dressing as a piece of pizza.  A piece of pizza is a great costume: it's funny, instantly recognizable, you can customize it, and of course, it's easy! It's also comfortable and easy to move around in, and you can remove it in a jiffy if necessary (perfect for a school or work costume!)

I made this costume out of felt yardage (the kind you get on the bolt at the fabric store, as opposed to the small sheets of craft felt). I love making costumes out of felt! It's inexpensive, easy to work with, and you don't have to finish it by hemming. Perfect for a one-time-use costume.

Project Materials:

    * 1 yard each of cream-colored and tan felt (72" wide), $3.59 per yard
    * 1/4 yard of dark red felt, $.90
    * 1 sheet each of black, brown, green craft felt, on hand or $.25 each
    * A piece of batting, 24x24", on hand or $4.95 (I bought a bag of crib-sized batting at Wal-mart)
    * Sewing machine & thread
    * Hot glue gun & glue
    * Velcro, on hand

Total: I spent $13.98, but you could make it for about $8 (if you have batting on hand, or if you skip the batting)

Tutorial for making it is on my blog, Dollar store Crafts

Cool! Are those fabric-covered notebooks?

I got my haul from ecogeek* today! We got hooked up with tons of t-shirt goodness!

For the baby: a Robin shirt


The middle brother got a Batman shirt (sorry he's missing from the photo - it's his naptime)



Oldest brother loves green, so a Green Lantern shirt:



Also, notice that cool pez-like candy dispenser. We got spidey, Wolverine, and Iron Man. I wish I would have had the video camera on when we opened the box, because the boys were SOOOO excited.



While we're talking about candy, here's a shot of the extra goodies: a Poison Ivy tote bag, crayons, and tons of candy. I tried to lay it out to take pics, but my boys thwarted me!



And, matching Supermom and Superdad shirts for me & my husband!

Thank you so much, *ecogeek!! You totally spoiled us with these awesome goodies!!

3  Steampunk Necklaces out of old jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by yardenxanthe on: July 12, 2010 05:03:35 PM
I recently participated in an awesome steampunk charm swap (check the gallery -- it's amazing), and when I sat down to turn my charms into necklaces, I ended up playing all day yesterday with transforming the charms into bigger pieces. I LOVE the results!



I turned Lady_Lovecraft's charm (center) into this awesome necklace. LOVE it!!



Scrabble tile pennyfarthing charm into this cute necklace (notice I used 2 key charms as links in the chain)



This is one of my own charm rejects turned into a cool winged necklace



And Doxie24_7's (I think) round swallow charm as the center for another winged pendant



Cool steampunk orb... barely changed anything. Just turned it to its side, added a swallow charm and some chain.

WOO! Thanks for these awesome charms, everyone! (I am still working on the others, so I'll post them when they're created).

Sorry for the delay in posting pics, and soooo sorry for how cruddy these pics are. I got this awesome swap package from nikimac



First up, the whole group. Trash compactor bookends, 3 little blasters (for my sons), peg dolls, Princess Leia earmuffs, and an extra star wars burp cloth.



Here are the trash compactor bookends. They have figurines in them!



Mini blaster guns (some little boys are going to be very excited when they see them. I had to keep the package away from them until I could take pictures... now it's dark, so that's why the photos are so horrible)



The peg dolls.



Earmuffs made with pretty brown satin ribbon.

Thank you so much, nikimac!! I appreciate all the thought you put into my package!

First of all, my apologies to leeska for the delay in posting the photos for the great package she sent!



A pretty autumn-brown flower fascinator style headband! Two embroidered tea towels with tall ships (my favorite!), and three autumn trees paintings (painted over religious art on canvas). Total spent: $7!



A close up of the awesome embroidery on the tea towels. Such nice work!

Thank you so much, leeska!! You did a fabulous job.

I will be sending my thank you present out today and I'm pretty pleased with it Smiley

With good reason: it's AWESOME!!



The theme works really well this week because it has been SO rainy in Oregon. I love clouds and rain anyway, so these were a great choice from my wists, sorbetsurprise.



This is such a cool dangly raindrop mobile thing. I love it. I think I need to cover my house in these (or at least a window!)



How great is this necklace? So cute.



And this adorable house is a pincushion made from a bottlecap.

I love everything you made, Sarah! You did such a great job. I definitely came out the winner on this swap! Thank you for working so hard and making such thoughtful gifts.

Sweet! I like this idea a lot more than a gallery a mile long!

-

1. aprilagain - received 6/18
2. Doxie24_7 - received 6/18
3. cindibee - received 6/25
4. Lady Lovecraft - received 6/22
5. yardenxanthe - that's me! - sent everyone's 6/16 - doxie24_7's was returned to me, sending again today 6/28
6. Krafty_Karusu - received 6/21
7. Ralph - received



Awesome package from aprilagain. I totally wasn't expecting the extras, and can you see how WEE the watch hand (in the plastic package) is? Sooooo small.



Front & back - so cool!



Cool charm from Doxie24_7 - she said this was her first swap. I hope it's been a good experience!



Elegant steampunk by Krafty_Karusu. My son asked if it was candy! Smiley



This lovely charm is by Lady Lovecraft (congratulations on your graduation, by the way!!). It's so cool! I love it. The teeny scrabble tile is adorable.



Pretty charm from Ralph, plus extras and cute packaging.



Blurry pic of cindibee's special charms (she sent 2 plus a pack of extra goodies)



A closer pic of the winged charm



And the mysterious little bottle



Here's mine. I made it out of a washer (tried to stamp it with clock numbers with my metal dies), added a large copper chain link around the edge, rhinestone brads for the watch hands and the top of the pocketwatch.



I used dollar store wedding favor tins to make steampunky-boxes to put the charms in, but I only had 3 tins on hand, so I only sent them to half my swap partners (sorry, other partners!).

10  Quilt block swap: charity crosses in New Swap Theme Ideas by yardenxanthe on: May 10, 2010 05:13:04 PM
Anyone feeling the love for a quilt block swap?



Here's the pattern I was inspired by: Moda Bake Shop's Charity Crosses

although, i am in love with its more mod cousin. (find the original photo here)



And a couple other ideas in the cross family:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/wonderlandq/3865047834/in/faves-17261684@N00/


http://www.flickr.com/photos/carryboo/3657610186/in/faves-17261684@N00/


I'm thinking stash busting (i.e. try not to buy new fabric, as much as you might want to - ha ha!) and make x number of different blocks so everyone in the swap has enough blocks to make a quilt. (The moda quilt has 35 blocks). The number of participants in the swap would help us decide how many different blocks we'd make...

Like, if we had 7 participants, we could each make 5 different designs (7 blocks of each design). Or whatever... we can talk about it.

Anyone like this idea?
