1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Harry Potter baby blanket on: December 01, 2013 03:09:21 PM
My dear friend and running partner is getting ready to have a baby girl.  We both share a huge love of Harry Potter so I decided to make her a Harry Potter bookshelf baby blanket to welcome the new baby.  The quilt was made with patterns from fandominstitches.com (best fandom patterns ever).  Her baby shower is next weekend and I hope she loves it as much as I do.  Parts of the binding turned out a little wonky, but I'm still happy with it

2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Minecraft Shoes on: October 15, 2013 07:56:51 AM
My nine year old niece is in love with minecraft, so I started crafting for Christmas early and just finished her some shoes.  Luckily they are just squares,  which is good because my painting skills are sadly lacking.  Special thanks to Chughes225 for the painting tips before I started. 

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Silk Harry Potter Scarf on: January 08, 2013 07:30:56 AM
I have been having some fun silk painting and decided to make a Harry Potter scarf for a friend.  It is only my second silk painted project (and the first was very forgiving for mistakes).  I love how it turned out except for Harry's glasses.  Ugh.  They are a little wonky.  I made it for a friend, but since I don't like the glasses I think I will make her a different one...not sure what I'll do with this one.  The background I decided to give it a batik kind of look so when the paint was wet you put salt on it.  My kids loved that part.

The whole thing.

4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Handpainted Silk Butterfly Wings on: January 06, 2013 08:22:11 AM
For Christmas I wanted to make my niece some silk butterfly wings for her to play dress up with.  I found a tutorial on how to make some adorable tie dyed butterfly wings, but I decided I wanted hers to look like a monarch butterfly.  So, after watching about 10 hours of youtube videos on how to paint on silk I ordered the supplies and gave it a go.  For my first try I think they turned out nice.  There are definitely things I would do different, but she likes them and that is all that matters.  I don't have a picture of her playing in them yet.  They were lots of fun to do and my boys (8 and 4) got to help paint them.  Boys rock, but sometimes it is nice to take a break from lego, star wars, and car crafts and do something girly Smiley

The tutorial I followed for making the wings:  http://thismamamakesstuff.com/2009/11/week-of-tutorials-silk-scarf-butterfly-wings/

Here they are traced, stretched and ready to be painted:



Some of the spots are done:



And finally completed:

5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Butter Beer Sugar Scrub on: December 24, 2012 12:42:36 PM
Thanks to the fabulous advice from MareMare I was able to whip up a batch of Butterbeer Sugar Scrub for my sister for Christmas!  I found a cute online printable and a glass container from the store and Voila!

The best part is that the house smelled great after all of the mixing and butterscotch fragrance.   Grin 
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Butter Beer Sugar Scrub??? on: December 10, 2012 05:17:24 PM
I'm trying to decide what to make my sister for Christmas and I decided that I want to make her some butterbeer sugar scrub.  Problem is I've never really made any bath/beauty products before  Wink  I've been able to piece the basics together on how to make a sugar scrub, but I have no idea how to mix the oils to make a butter beer fragrance.  Do any of you have any ideas?  Any details that you might have would be appreciated.  It is a butterscothcy-vanillaish fragrance for those who are not Harry Potter fans.  THANKS!!!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / converting crochet to knit???? on: June 04, 2009 06:23:15 AM
Does anyone on here know how to convert a crochet pattern to knitting terms...It is a pretty simple pattern?  I might be able to figure out how to knit it by just winging it, but I'm not sure.

It is for brokendove's crochet puppy dog scarf http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305722.0

It is sooo cute!!  Here is the link to the pattern...

Any help is appreciated...I would love to make this for my youngest son (yes he will hate me when he gets older, but for now I am soooo making him wear these things!)  I wish I could crochet, but I can't even do a chain stitch Smiley  THX

9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Deco Clay? on: March 25, 2009 05:46:41 PM
Has anyone worked with Deco Clay?  It is a polymer clay that air dries?  I recently purchased the book Clay Art for All Seasons and it uses Deco Clay in it instead of any other clays and I wondered if it is worth purchasing it instead of a regular clay I can find at Michaels?  The flowers she makes in the book are awesome and I want to try some, but don't know much about clays.  Any tips are appreciated.

Thanks!

ps...here is a link to the book...

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Felted purse pattern? on: January 17, 2009 08:40:15 AM
I have been searching for a while for a large felted purse pattern where there is a flap on the purse...Dimensions after felting somewhere around 10inchesx11inches.  Does anyone know of any good patterns out there?  I have found a few, but none of them had a flap on it...grrrr...  Anyone know any off hand.  Thanks so much!
