191  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Tadpole Reporter! on: July 06, 2009 11:33:43 AM
My little guy's official title in class this year. I figured he needed a shirt for such a big responsibility. Turned out so good, best freezer paper stencil yet!

and the back
192  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / 16 hour owl bookmark :P on: April 19, 2009 03:54:07 PM
Sunday Afternoon Housewife sent me a cross stitch piece with these cute little owl so I thought I'd make some more of them but I simply cannot believe how long this thing took me. It's not like I'm super slow either! So kudos go out to all the cross stitcher who make inspirationally beautiful and unbelievably time-consuming pieces. I don't know how you do it...

Here's my teeny weeny contribution to the cross stitch collection round here.

This is at about 12 hours of work when I was ready to give up entirely.

ETA somebody asked about the finishing. I basted a piece of cute fabric onto the back to cover the stitches then folded the aida fabric over and blanket stitched it in place. I used a bit of fray stop to make sure the aida doesn't unravel and I made the tassel with the same embroidery thread as the blanket stitching.
193  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A whole bunch of "Crafting With Kids" projects! on: April 19, 2009 10:49:53 AM
These are all either made by kids, with kids, or at the request of kids and possibly their designs. So much fun.

this one took so many hours, it hurts just to think about it.
194  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded ladybug on: April 19, 2009 10:35:47 AM
For my friend Daina.
I made the face by taking a paperclay mold of a mini barbie doll. The face is polymer clay. There's a beaded string to hang it up that doesn't show.

Hope she likes it!
195  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mini rainbow beanbag chair on: April 19, 2009 10:31:11 AM
This was fun to make. I had some left over beanbag stuffing from when I refilled a regular sized chair (which has since been sadly sacrificed to kitties who I thought were housebroken *cry*), it's been hanging around in a big bag for ages and the other day I figured it was time to either do something with it or do away with it. It was just enough for this mini version which the baby absolutely LOVES so it was totally worth the hour or so of figuring it out sans pattern (heh). Plus I busted some of that flannel stash, that's always a good thing!

196  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / No more garlic flavoured pineapple please! on: April 19, 2009 10:24:07 AM
I just got so sick of fruit tasting faintly of onion and garlic that I decided something must be done. I sanded down the bamboo cutting boards then fixed them up with the woodburning tool so it's obvious which side is for the stinky vegetables and which side is not! Pretty simple but believe me, it's been a big, huge taste improvement around breakfast time. Nothing like a garlic flavoured pineapple to ruin your day, lemme tell ya Tongue.

197  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Bib from funky recycled t-shirts, link to tute included! on: April 19, 2009 10:09:52 AM
I've got lots of cool old tshirts hanging around that will make funky doodle bib for my messy baby. Super easy to do too, give it a try!

link to tute:

They stretch to fit over the head just like a t-shirt but the ribbing neckband fits well enough to keep food from falling down their front. Use the idea for your own purposes whatever they may be. Mamas everywhere know there can never be enough food-catching devices to go around so feel free to spread the bib-love far and wide.
198  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded paisley love doll on: April 04, 2009 01:58:18 PM
This started out as a little dotee doll.


The paisley wraps around her shoulder.

Close up.

199  CANADA / Ontario / Cobourg/Port Hope? on: April 03, 2009 07:23:33 AM
We're potentially moving this summer and I'm just wondering if there is anything going on around there? I'd love to find a crafting circle and I definitely need a crochet and knitting tutor. I hear there's a farmer's market too, any crafts I wonder? Anybody gots any info? Thanks!!
200  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Fabric markers, best and worst brands? on: October 29, 2008 11:16:12 AM
Does anyone have any info about different kinds of fabric markers? I'm trying to find some online but there are just ssssooooo many kinds, whew! Is there a site somewhere that rates how they work, things like color bleeding, color fastness, washability, etc etc.
If you've used any please tell me what you think of the kind you had.

Thanks so much for your help!
