1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Mustaches for everyone! (pic heavy) on: January 09, 2009 12:28:54 PM
I'm sorry but I'm hitting it .. this rocks, seriously!

Tempted to steal the idea and make pencil toppers for my students ... How cute would that be!!!!

Thanks! If you do end up making pencil toppers for your students you could always purchase those little removable erasers and glue them in to the mustache. That way your students can still use their pencils' original eraser and have the fun of a mustache!
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Mustaches for everyone! (pic heavy) on: January 08, 2009 10:58:12 PM
So I work for a fairly dull federal agency in DC and I tend to entertain myself by making things, or decorating (you should see how many paper snowflakes I've made!). ANYHOW I'm not the only one at work who likes to entertain themself with silly things. So at our office holiday party some of the ladies challenged the guys to compete in a mustache competition.

Today is the judging and I decided to make "trophies" for the guys who participated (they'll also be receiving a disposable razor!). For my trophies I made little stuffed mustaches on sticks. I painted the sticks gold, as well as styrofoam blocks to make trophy holders. Here's a look at the results:

Mustaches in their holders:










I hope you enjoy my tribute to hirsute men! I definitely want to make more, they're so fun!

EDIT:

As Per Request a photo of the winners:



3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Simple Bunny on: August 28, 2008 02:24:07 PM
So my cousin's daughter just turned 4 and I decided to try and recreate a bunny pattern I had made for my other cousin (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=135033.0). I found some brown fleece, and the spotted some cute complementary fabric in a light turqouisey blue with brown polka dots. To reduce, reuse, and recycle, I stuffed her with old holey pantyhose. The sewing was a bit rough since I was rusty (and am still inexperienced) so my mother helped a good deal, but I think she turned out well.

I give you Dot the Bunny:

Ears up


Ears Down

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Baby Bunny on: November 23, 2006 05:21:08 PM
I made this baby bunny out of micro fleece, and I embroidered on the face. I stitched over a small piece of fleece to raise the nose up a bit.

I think it's pretty darling, and it wasn't that hard to make at all.

Where did you find this pattern? Could you do a tutorial? I'm a rather inexperienced sewer. The product is absolutely gorgeous!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Tattoo Shirt on: August 16, 2005 05:15:56 PM
Thanks, I sketched it out first and then drew it on the shirt-I'm not that steady. I'm sure if you went to a tattoo parlor and asked nicely they'd give you a flash transfer. Or even google flash terms like "sacred heart" until you find something you like, print it out and trace it. A good place to look for banner inspiration are flags. the two in this design are loosely based on the Maine flag.
