191  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / BRRR! Mommy, my head is chilly! (4 pics) (1pic pg 3) on: October 10, 2007 07:52:20 AM
oh, this was fun!

first you liberate the serger from your unpacked basement, yikes!

then you ransack the pile of fleece clothes you got at the second hand store yesterday for just the right colours. so hard to choose!

then you find four spools of green thread in exactly the same shade *embarassed by mountainous thread collection*

and finally you make a decidedly un-girly hat for your sweet little pumpkin! RRRAAAWWWRRRR!!

i didn't use or make a pattern, just kinda fitted it to her head. yay fun trying to get her to sit still for that,  Cheesy ha ha! i'll edge stitch the face part later on, i want to go out and vote now with a warm headed babe!

195  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Brown Velvet Bear, first ever! (3 pics) on: May 23, 2007 01:32:31 PM
it's not perfect but it was a great experiment! i used hard card board and bobby pins for jointing 'cause i didn't have the proper stuff so had to end up securing the limbs with buttons when they started falling off Shocked. and the eyes are bead since my safety eyes are all in storage. i'll have to make a proper version for my on-the-way baby, this one will go to daddy, the cord bits are from a pair of his pants i mended and the rest is an old pair of velvet pants from who knows where! prolly just a fabric stash from way back, i don't think i ever wore brown velvet pants.

anyhoo, it was fun and this book was good for basic instructions but they left out how to attach the head so i just stitched it on. strange that they would forget instructions for something like that eh? whatever. i managed.

hope you like my first ever attempt at a bear!!

pattern pieces

all cut out

ta da!!

196  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Felt Ginger People, semi-tutorial (complete w/ photos) on: December 17, 2006 09:46:53 AM

i saw something like this somewhere on here and was totally inspired to make some of my own for gifts this year.
here's my version...

first i cut out a gingerbread person in paper and then chalked it onto felt pieces

there i cut them out

hand sewed sequins and beads on for faces and buttons and added rick rack as "icing" trim

then sewed them up and stuffed them!

i think my family will get a kick out of them. my little boy thinks they're the best thing on the tree! 'cause of course i made a set for us too Cheesy
197  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Many Hats! on: December 14, 2006 09:53:09 AM
now that i've figured out how to do it, i just can't stop! my friend's store actually asked me to start making something else 'cause they have too many hats now! ha ha.

198  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Teeny weeny tiny little tree with lights and decorations (complete w/ photos) on: December 01, 2006 09:32:04 AM
i bought this little stand with green wires ending is wee lights from ikea a few years ago. you can bend the wires to make it look like a tree or whatever, i think they had red ones too you could bend those into heart shapes, cute. the lights on mine are red, yellow and green and can glow steady or flashing.
anyhoo, i got a really small fake tree and drilled a hole in the wooden trunk, fed the lights through and wrapped them around the branches and made some decorations. i had a really small apartment at the time so it fit perfectly, but it was so cute and took So Much Work that i kept it.
here it is!

199  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Stockings and angels and snowmen, oh my! (complete w/ photos) many photos! on: November 29, 2006 07:27:19 PM
these are a few things i made about two years ago.

this stocking is for my little boy, the sequin snowflakes are on the back too.

this stocking was premade, i just added the details for myself.

this snowman was one of his gifts. the hardest part was finding just the right stick for his arms!

all the details are seed beads and there's a lot of teensy embroidery.
