This is my version of CrochetMe's Baby Its Cold Outside sweater.
Its made for my nephew who is on the way... due July 7th... I can't wait to be an aunt!! :c)

Obviously no action shots yet, but here are pics of it from my SIL's shower.




Hehe. Look it fits! ::

12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Macro Photo Challenge: Burrs [not brambles] on: April 21, 2008 05:43:54 AM
Or at least I'm pretty sure they're brambles.

Well, brambles they are not. I've discovered they are burrs.

Taken in St. Sauveur, Quebec. In September.

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Reversible Lunch Bag on: March 12, 2008 07:27:17 AM
I made my swap partner a reversible lunch bag.
I traced a plastic bag onto fabric and figured out the best way to sew it together to make it reversible [because, really, the same fabric gets boring everyday. Plus she's an elementary teacher.]

This side has little kitties on it. So cute.


Then the more 'grown-up' side.
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Oreo Tape Measure on: March 12, 2008 07:24:20 AM
My swap partner had serendipitycrafter's oreo cookie tape measure on her wists. So I read her thread and figured out how she made it.
Instead of hot gluing the cookie to the tape measure, I basted through the brown, picked up a loop of the white, and through the brown again. A bit tedious, but it came out well.

15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Coin Purse on: March 12, 2008 07:19:16 AM
This was made for my swap partner in the Newbie Round 8 Swap.
I made her a wallet, but I suck at zippers so I thought I'd make her a matching coin purse.



Its all done in one piece.
You start at the bottom and after the first row of sc, you work in the back loops and the front loop to make two rows next to each other.
From there, I just spiraled up until I thought it was tall enough.
Then I worked in the back loop once to make a bit of a ridge, made the flap and button hole, and sewed on the button hole.
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First Wallet on: March 12, 2008 07:11:37 AM
I made this wallet using SexPixie's tutorial [http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16097.0].
It was made for my lovely swap partner in the Newbie Round 8 Swap.
I hope she likes it.

It was a project of firsts for me...
- first wallet.
- first vinyl.
- first binding.
- first making my own binding.
- first interfacing.






17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Card for hubby on: February 14, 2008 08:36:08 AM
Hubby and I decided that we weren't going to spend any money on each other this year [budget's tight, plus we're not excited about it when the holiday tells us to buy each other things]. But I figured that doesn't mean I can't make him a card or present.

So here's his card. [We'll see if I make him anything today or not]
Mind you. This is the first card I've ever made [besides those ones you make as kids]



18  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Stained Glass Looking Ornaments on: December 04, 2007 03:55:36 PM
A few years ago my mom and I were in a craft store and found this idea. I had planned on making a bunch that year, but slacked. They've moved with me and I finally got around to decorating more of them this year.

Basically you find a peel and stick stained glass paint and go to town on glass balls. Either using the paints directly on the ornaments or by painting onto a flat surface and transferring it onto the ornament.

Here's the ones I've done so far using different ideas. I'm sure I'll have more by the time Christmas rolls around so I'll be sure to post them.

Let me know if you have any questions or just what you think.
If there's an ornament in the group photo you have questions about, let me know.


Here's the lot I've done so far:



These are done by just randomly squirting colors on the balls.





This one is done by painting the ball and then painting the circles on a flat surface, filling with sparkles, and peeling/sticking those on top.



This is the one my hubby made. I just wanted to show off his crafty skills.  Grin



And this one is done by painting the inside of the ball and then using leading paint outside.




I'll be sure to add more as I have pictures and as I make them.  Grin
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / You know you crochet too much when... on: November 20, 2007 06:42:45 AM
... you were finishing ends of two baby blankets on the way to their dedication. And then you walk in with yarn wrapped around your wrist and a crochet hook in your hair.

Oh. And when your friend pulls out said blankets, you notice a loose end and grab said crochet hook and weave it in quickly.
20  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Adult costume: Witch on: October 28, 2007 04:38:16 PM
[Also posted on the general board: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=204593.0]

So we took a trip to my in-laws this weekend and my SIL asked me to help her make her Halloween costume for this year. She had envisioned a witch, but more of a wizard-y kind of witch and not the green, icky kind. Here's her drawing:



We started with a dress that she wore to her other brother's wedding this summer:



Then we added a tutu for height of the skirt.
We used the tutorial from Flickr [http://www.flickr.com/photos/ambrosialove/522118984/in/photostream/].
Here's the tutu:



Then we added a skirt made from this lightweight sheer material. Its a flat piece that has two hook/eye closures to hold it up.





Next, we made a cumber bun [sp?] kind of thing to wrap around. The material is more heavyweight, but beautiful. 






And all together:





She's wearing it to school on Tuesday and then again for Wednesday night. Once she wears it, she'll send me pics and I'll add action shots!


This was fun for me because I got to do a lot of firsts:
- First time using interfacing [in the cumber bun].
- First time using velcro [to hold together the cumber bun].
- First time making a tutu.
- First time using most of these fabrics.
