1  painted baby shoes in Shoes: Completed Projects by Pretty Pistol on: August 08, 2010 08:20:48 AM
i had some little white baby shoes and they needed something. i painted them to sorta look like saddle oxfords, but the idea didnt translate perfectly.

they have little cherries, and say Cora in cursive.  they could have been better but my crafting abilities are lacking lately.

and heres how they started out

2  scooby quilted tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Pretty Pistol on: June 23, 2010 06:23:00 PM

i found this wonderfull quilted bag at a yardsale, and knew a friend whos son is nuts about tractors so i bought it for 1$.  what a deal!

i got to looking and it was in great condition and i really liked the way it was made.  i thought about keeping it for myself.. but were not really all that big on tractors.

with a little help from my quilting instructor i reproduced the bag in a scooby theme for my son, since hes nuts about scooby. now both boys have a cool bag to carry their toys/clothes in. 

whole bag


it was so easy, so much easier than i thought it would be. i think ill have to make one for myself and everyone else i know lol.

3  recon jeans for the baby bump, and some tyedye in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Pretty Pistol on: May 28, 2010 05:00:35 PM
i reconed some regular maternity jeans.  i just seam ripped off the ugly blue stretchy stuff that had elastic in it, and replaced it with some lime green stretchy t shirt. 

i just cut the shirt at the armpits and sewed it onto the pants, so i can fold this twice or three times, as you can see in the pictures.  if i totally unfold it i can literly wear it as a tube top lol.

also a  tye dye t shirt dh and i made.  we tye dyed it pink, and then he painted buddah on it. or as my 2 year old says "boobah"

please excuse the sorta bad pictures.. i was using the picture in the mirror method.

4  T-shirt to toddler pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Pretty Pistol on: May 14, 2010 05:17:17 AM
we had this great shirt dh and i both liked... but its a medium. hes an xl, and impregnant, so i hold out no hopes of that shirt ever fitting me again.  so i made pants for the little guy.

he really likes them, which is a suprize because he usualy hates anything i make him. ( i did lie a little and tell him i "got" the pants .. not "made" )

they are a bit too big in the picture, but i took up the elastic and cut off a bit of leg. he decided to pick his nose so i creativly cropped the picture... im lucky to have gotten it at all lol. ill try to post better action shots if he will let me get any today.

ignore the mess, dh broke his collar bone and its impossible to keep up with the toddler and the injured all at once.

5  some onesies in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Pretty Pistol on: April 14, 2010 12:18:29 PM
ok so i didnt make  the onsies but i made the patches on them... that counts right.

from left to right

rar lion, 18m gerber t shirt. ( big brother, who is 4 months short of being 3 has been wearing this around the house )

the winking owl, 0-3m yellow gerber onsie

little green elephant, 0-3 yellow gerber onsie

we wont know if were having a girl or a boy for another few days, so i tried to make these at least somewhat gender neutral.

heres a bee i embroidered.... it was a little to girly i thought, so i saved it just incase we have a girl.. if not ill just put it on something for myself.

im also working on a kimono top, made from the same orange seersucker fabric the lion was embroidered on. ( i think it might be a tad bit tacky lol )

7  painted bottle. in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by Pretty Pistol on: March 31, 2010 07:43:17 PM
i scored some glass bottles for super cheap. My SIL has been painting wine glasses ect. and i thought it looked like fun and decided to give it a go on the bottles. i shared my ideas ( and my great deal find ) with her. 

its a 4 oz bottle. with little bees.

a close up of the little bees.

painting on glass is hard.. its like trying to paint with mayonaise... but it turned out cuter than i thought it would.

8  baby bee bunting in Crochet: Completed Projects by Pretty Pistol on: January 17, 2010 10:54:17 AM
im 5 weeks along and we were checking out the baby buntings or cocoons. dh said " i can do that"  i wanted to make one but im not that skilled in crochet ( im more of a sewer, i plan on a fleece cocoon eventualy).

here it is. dh crocheted the bunting and hat, i showed him how to make the pom poms, and picked out all the colors. we wont know what were having for a while so brown and yellow seemed like a good choice, and not so "babyish"

its gonna kill me to have to wait 9 months for a tiny little bee to put in it lol. older brother has requested a bee hat and dh wants to make himself one too lol.

9  bandana quilts in Quilting: Completed Projects by Pretty Pistol on: November 30, 2009 11:39:02 AM
ive made three of five bandana quilts for my christmas list.

the girly one, for my neice the only girl in a sea of boys.

the camo one, for my oldest nephew

the babies quilt, for the yongest of the three boys in the family.

they all measure about 40 by 40 inches and tied. not huge, but not baby blanket sized. i made them light weight because my son loves to carry a blanket with him in the car and i figured the niece and nephews might like it too. the little fellow in the infant carrier will definantly get some use out of it.

i still lack the scooby one for my son , and a black and white nearly queen sized one for my husband. that ones gonna put a dent in the christmas cash lol. but i get to use it too so ill let it slide Tongue

i love these, weve sent one home with my mom, and i have ideas for christmas decorations too.  we have a lot of fallen trees in the woods next to our house so were not cutting down living happy trees just to make stuff.
