21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Flower Button T-shirt on: September 13, 2009 07:54:36 PM
I sewed these buttons from Michael's onto a toddler t-shirt.  My original idea was to fill in the entire heart, but the weight of the buttons was truly too much.  It's cute enough as it is, though, don't you think?!  The photo quality isn't the best, cell phones and all... Hope you are inspired...
22  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dalek (Dr. Who) T-shirt Christmas Present on: December 15, 2008 02:17:31 PM
"EXTERMINATE"!
Everyone is getting hand-made gifts this year from me.  Everyone.  Even the impossible-to-find-a-gift-for hubby.  I scoured the catalogs, and found a t-shirt for $25.  And, as I'm sure everyone here knows, I said to myself, "I can make THAT for SOOOO much less!"  I am incredibly proud because I am usually a embroiderist (is that even a word?) and this was a freezer paper stencil.  Note the many, many circles and the even more difficult grid on his (her?) Bobba-Fet-like head.  Well, enough of the rambling.  "EXTERMINATE"!

Thanks for looking! 
Merry Christmas!
23  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 31 ENTRIES / International Jewelry (Too many pics!!) on: October 04, 2008 11:51:41 AM
This is my first Challenge Entry, and I have to say it was a Challenge for sure!  I decided that my main materials would be Sushi Nori and Tamale Wrappers.  The pasta and fruit roll-ups came to me when I was at the store.  (Hence the "International" title: Japan, Mexico, Italy, USA)  The Twizzlers were another idea that didn't pan out, so I  just gave them to a co-worker to eat.  In the end, I think I only used about 10% of what I bought.  But I used a ton of glue, Mod Podge, and some Hemp twine.  So, without further ado, here are the photos. 

My favorite set: Bracelet and ring.

Close-ups (the ring was made from a milk/juice lid):


The backs, so you can see that the bracelet is adjustable!

Here is a bracelet that is made with the Tamale wrapper that is sewed on the machine.  I broke a needle and had to untangle the bobbin a million times.  Looks cool, but really is a pain.

Another view:

Here is a belt made with the pastas and the fruit roll-ups.  I strung the pasta like beads, and then glued on the fruit roll-ups.  I hope I never have to do crafts with fruit roll-ups again!

Thanks for making it to the end of this long post. 
Enjoy, and DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!!!
24  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Sling inspired by KarmaBaby via Petchy, I think on: September 09, 2008 05:36:13 PM
You know how it goes, you start on one website and the next thing you know, you're 500 miles away, but very happy when you've arrived.

I found the KarmaBaby website, I THINK, after being on Petchy's (or was it Vegbee?) (Africa...or was it India? (recognize the book?))  website with a tute on how to make a baby sling like the one I have.  so, I went out today and bought fabric, and you know how it goes! Cheesy  After searching their website further, it turns out we're in the same town.  Cool.

Anyhoo!  Here it is!  Please excuse the awkward photo-shot.  I was home alone.

25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Embroidered Pants on: August 19, 2008 11:51:03 AM
Firstly, I would like to say "Thank You" for all of the wonderful ideas and inspiration I have gotten from this forum!  Everybody is quite the clever crafter (say that 3 times fast!). 

 I have a 6-month girl, and just recently realized that she needs more clothes (ha-ha!)...Yeah, right! With so many grandmothers doting on her, she'll never need more clothes!  But, since she's taking longer naps now, I have some free time on my  hands.  I don't like to do dishes, so crafts come first!

Anywhoo!  Here is a pair of pants sewn from flannel, and hand-embroidered.  Hope you likee!

26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidery Alphabet (lots of pics)**EDIT** with Pattern on: August 17, 2008 03:37:43 PM
So!  I started this when I was 6 months pregnant, and now my little one is 6 months old.  Now it's complete...  Well, the letters are all done.  I'm thinking about doing some sort of border around it.
What do you think? 

Finished product:



In-progress:
I traced the design from a print-out using a permanent marker, then back-stitched the outline. It's about 7 inches on each side.


Original pattern from a 70s Craft book:

I hope you like it!
27  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mommy Felt Doll on: July 18, 2008 02:33:58 PM
As always, I'm inspired by Loveandasandwich, esp. this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=249676.0

So, I made a doll that represents me and my new Bebe.  Hope you like it!  Thanks loveandasandwich.  You rock!

28  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Hibiscus Bachelorette T-shirts on: July 18, 2008 02:25:08 PM
So, my friend is getting married soon, so us gals are throwing her a Bachelorette BBQ Pool Party.  Her wedding theme is hibiscuses (sp?).  So I made this t-shirt for her to wear during the party.  And, yes, that's glitter, ha-ha!



One of the games is a frozen t-shirt game:  You freeze wet, folded t-shirts and then you race to see who can get it unfrozen and put it on first.   I bought 12 used t-shirts at the thrift store and then made (many) Hibiscus stencils from freezer paper, putting the stencil in strategic places.  Here are 2 examples.




Hope you like the t-shirts and maybe you could use the t-shirt game idea, too!
29  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Beer Hops Stencil on: July 05, 2008 11:41:33 AM
My Hubby and I love beer, alot.  He asked me to make a t-shirt with hops on it.  So, although I don't yet have a pic of the finished project, I thought I would share my drawing for the stencil.  It fits on a full piece of typing paper.  I printed it out onto freezer paper to make the t-shirt.  Enjoy and use it well!

30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hippie Elephant on: January 12, 2008 04:13:40 PM
I'm totally riding on the Elephant Plushie Bandwagon.  This is the pattern that's posted here, so it's not really all that original.  But, I really like the colors and flowers. 

As a side note and/or word of advice:  when resizing your pattern on your computer, don't just randomly resize before printing.  Make sure you keep the same scale or aspect ratio.  I had a bit of a time learning that the hard way. Grrrr...
