1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / climbing blocks on: November 08, 2007 10:02:25 AM
I was inspired by the parent's magazine version (which I can't find a pic of), but here is another example: http://www.amazon.com/Childrens-Factory-INFANT-TODDLER-PLAYSPACE/dp/B000NNM0PC/ref=sr_1_5/104-5826653-3848726?ie=UTF8&s=toys-and-games&qid=1194544385&sr=1-5

I want to make some of these climbing blocks for my daughter (I am not willing to pay over $100!) and I have the foam--my old 3" memory foam mattress topper-- but, since it is a strip of foam and not the dense foam I assume these other blocks are made out of, I'll need a structure within the blocks... I was hesitant to use wood because of the weight, but now I'm thinking that some thin sheets of wood wouldn't be such a bad idea.  Does anybody have any suggestions for a cheapish material I could use?  Or any other suggestions?   Opinions?  Thoughts?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 9 mos old daughter as little red riding hood on: November 01, 2007 10:24:13 AM
I sewed the cloak using this tutorial: http://home.clara.net/arianrhod/Aldebaran/DoItYourself/Cloak02.html 
 and the dress was a recon from a skirt I never wore (and never planned on wearing)...I wish I could take all the credit for the ruffles, but all I did was a few simple seams.  We didn't go anywhere (well, I went out after she fell asleep and left her with her dad Smiley ), this was pretty much just for a photo shoot so she could have a *real* first halloween costume.





3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / first project-- onesie for Wren on: April 13, 2007 01:12:11 AM
I made this for my baby daughter (her name is Wren, hence the design choice) using freezer paper.  I'm so glad I found out about this technique!  Its so easy and the design turns out so precisely!  I'm proud of my first effort Smiley.
