I know bhean has been busy, I hope she doesn't mind me posting pics of the stuff I sent her.
I was inspired by Elphalba's recipe card catalog that bhean had wisted

      

I made her a few marble magnets too...



I don't think mine was quite as good as Elphalba's though!

2  Easter cuties in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amused on: April 13, 2007 09:47:29 AM
I stayed up almost all night long finishing these for the kids, but they love them, and they are pretty cute for a first try, waddaya think?


Easter morn



My daughter named her "Buttercup"

 
My other daughter named hers "long ear"


My son named his "Godzilla" (Ya, my husband has got him hooked on the old movies!)


The little one is probably under the couch somewhere


Here's dd#2 for scale, I'm going to make a little skirt for her bunny at some point.

Thanks!

I received this fantastic package from AsphaltQueen a few days ago (I needed batteries for the camera)!
She picked me for fabric, she sent me this-

 

And...



I don't know how she read my mind! I saw her post the bag she made w/ that funky brown vinyl with turquoise flowers and loved it! I think I need to get a stronger needle for my machine to try it, but I'm going to make a laptop/messenger/diaper bag (or try at leAST!) with it.
She also sent a couple other pieces of fabric that co-ordinate beautifully, and a really cute project bag that I have used already!
And of course a "sew sweet" card, Thank you AsphaltQueen, you ROCK the swap!

5  my little fairy in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by amused on: March 22, 2007 10:43:29 AM
I used this in my avatar, but I want to show it off some more  Wink

All my art seems to be digital lately, I guess it's a lot less messy when you have kids! I did this recently of my daughter, she's in her halloween costume, I placed her in a photo I took of a hollow tree stump, and gave her wings from a butterfly pic I found.
Whatta ya think?

6  Big Baby Butt Pants! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by amused on: March 20, 2007 06:35:22 PM
This is so exciting, it is my 3rd sewing project (after curtains) and first wearable item ever!   Grin
My sweet baby has a big ol' butt, and I use cloth diapers on top of it, so it's tricky finding pants that fit. These are huge!

 

I can't wait to try some of the cool tutorials here. Smiley

I finally overcame my sewing machine phobia and whipped up (after realizing how to thread the damn machine!) some curtains for the kids rooms!
Then last night I made pants!
I'm so excited, it's my first wearable thing ever!

   

They are big on him, but at least they fit his huge cloth diapered butt!
The shirt I tie dyed last year just before I gave birth to him.

Notice the entertainment unit in the first pic that is about to become a play kitchen for all my kiddies...

8  I finally did it! I made Curtains!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by amused on: March 19, 2007 04:34:00 PM
I have been afraid of my moms old (1969!) sewing machine for as long as I've had it (um, that'd be about 15 years!).
Finally, last week I was determined to overcome it, I stayed up all night, googled every sewing machine manual kenmore has (lost my manual, can't find the model number) and I finally figured it out! (after rethreading it about a million times and breaking 2 needles) .

For my 6 year old daughters room I used a vintage table cloth I found for $5, here it is before-

     

And as curtains-

     
They're not so uneven in real life, just slightly uneven  Roll Eyes

Then being such an expert I went to a fabric store and bought fabric!
(Imagine that!) My twins got curtains today, I should have done a closeup of the fabric it's really cute. Smiley 

     

We just moved so we haven't had a chance to paint yet, I'm doing pink in the flowered room, and lime in the twins room.

I'm so proud of myself! I know they are very simple, but I think they look great!
I have big plans to make lots and lots of stuff!

9  Bear for Baby - First needle felted thing EVER! in Felting: Completed Projects by amused on: February 16, 2007 07:25:19 AM
I just finished a bear for my youngest, aren't they cute?
It has wool batting in the middle, and natural coloured alpaca on the outside. I still have to reinforce the head and limb joints to stand up to man(baby)handling.





Comments? Advice?

(this is my first completed project post, I can't believe I actually finished something!)
