Just made Mr Toast a little blanket and pillow for his long journey across the ocean!  He's quite anxious as it's been a long while since he's travelled but he's also very excited to meet craftADDchick! Wink

Today I shall be putting together his passport and contract, and hoping to send on Tues or Wed  Cool

14  Thundercats gored skirt a.k.a. back to my childhood!! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by FruityLoops on: April 22, 2013 03:21:12 AM
Hi guys!

So I've had this faaaaabulous Thundercats fabric, that I picked up at a market, sat in my stash for years and years and never known what to do with it.  I had recently pondered making maybe an apron or a big bag with it.

But then a few weeks ago we had our monthly "Carvery Club" outing for Sunday munchies and I couldn't decide what to wear so I decided to knock up a skirt with the beautious fabric Cheesy

Now I'm not that daring when it comes to sewing my own clothing so pretty much every skirt I've made before now has been a circle skirt, but I didn't have that much fabric and if it were circle then the pattern would have been the wrong way up for most of the skirt, soooo I decided to step it up and made a 6 gored skirt, eeeeek!  Didn't bother with a pattern, just used a calculator, a pen, and a couple of rulers Wink

I even popped in a nice big pocket on either side because I hate having clothing without pockets, plus I've always wanted to try making a skirt or dress with pockets!!

Mr Loops reckoned it would be better if I'd matched up the pattern, but the pattern was very repetitive plus of course I didn't have enough to be able to do that, so 'fraid not!!

TTFN  Cool

15  Dr Hoooooo in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FruityLoops on: March 22, 2013 01:25:58 PM
Holy moley, I can't believe it's been over 2 years since I last posted.  Craziness!!!

Well I'm still making owls anyways and here are 2 of my latest.  Please say hi to Dr Hoo 10 and 11!

My sister looooooves Dr Who, specifically David Tennant, and she's also a big fan of my owls. So when I was home for Xmas 2011 we had to take her to A&E (ER to non-Brits), and at some point there (somewhere between 2 and 6am Sad) I promised I'd make her a David Tennant owl.  And being the the mean sister that I am I made her wait aaaaaall year, so that she'd forget about it obviously, and finally made her one for Xmas 2012!

Complete with removeable 3D glasses to make sure he can see void stuff if needed Smiley

And a back view :-D

I would have liked to have made him a suit from some nice cotton stripy fabric rather than fleece but I'm still looking for the perfect fabric :-)


Anyways, then after making the Tenth Doctor Who/Hoo for my Sis, I decided it would be awesome to make an owl version of ALL the doctors!!!  Alas I haven't had time to do that yet, but the Eleventh Doctor Who - Matt Smith, I have had time to make  Grin

With of course his fez, because fezzes are cool!


Hope you like, c&c welcome!!

Thanks for looking   Cool

Show and tell Smiley  So my aim of this week was to cut down on carbs such as bread/pasta/rice/potatoes, but without upping my fat intake!

Last night I was looking through the freezer and decided I needed to eat up some of the stuff that had been in there ages (namely prawns, cod, and mushrooms), so I made myself a stir fry!  As well as prawns, cod and lots of mushrooms, it also contained leek, cabbage, peas, a fresh mushroom, lots of garlic and a smidge of cheese Smiley  Was certainly filling, and had 4 of my daily portions of veg in it, bargains, I love stir fries!

And tonight Mr Loops had a mate over to watch movies and eat very unhealthy food with (namely big fat pizzas with extra toppings and cheese on, and a key lime pie for dessert) so I made sure to plan and eat my food before they started cooking so that I didn't get tempted!!

So I made a kind of turkey curry (ish), with mushrooms, red pepper, onion, spring onions, a few cooked potatoes I had left over (canned), some turkey I needed to get rid of out of the freezer (again), some extra light soft cheese, hot curry powder and herbs, with a nice portion of yummy [microwaved] cauliflower rice on the side Smiley

I do love a bit of invention in the kitchen!  Not sure the piccies do them justice but they were both yummy meals and very low fat and low carb, yey Cheesy

Yummy yum, a healthy and fresh Sweet Potato, Chicken, Coconut and Chilli soup for tea, with some freshly baked granary bread  Cheesy

And plenty leftover for my lunch the next 2 days!

EDIT: Forgot to add that my goal is going well so far, filled in my food diary the last 2 days Smiley

18  Rodriguez the Mexican Bandito Owl! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FruityLoops on: January 15, 2011 11:42:20 AM
Please say hi to Rodriguez, the Mexican Bandito Owl  Grin

Rodriguez was born into a wealthy family in Guadalajara, Mexico. Alas he rebelled from his priviledged life, left Guadalajara and formed a group of Banditos to terrorise owls passing through the Laser-Shark Mountains!!

After 10 years of Banditting he left Mexico to travel the world in search of a posse worthy of skills! Vmonos!

My last owl post for a little while, I have another chap on the go but will be a little while before I'm ready to post him Smiley

Thanks for lookin  Cool

19  Rainbow Guider Owl in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FruityLoops on: January 06, 2011 02:55:35 PM
Well I promised Becca I'd post piccies of the other Girl Guide Owl I made, so here she is Cheesy

I was commissioned to make this owl on the basis of my first guider owl - Rosie) for the 20th anniversary of the Staindrop Rainbows troop(? - soz if wrong term, I don't know much about guides!) as a gift for a lady who had been there from day one!!

Her outfit colours are based on those of the Staindrop Rainbows with embroidered trefoil on her breast, and they requested a tag with her name, title, and her dates of 'service' (on the back) embroidered on.

The name of the troop is also embroidered across the back

Alas she isn't quite 100% complete in these pictures as I hadn't any ribbon to hang the tag around her neck, but I ended up getting the most perfect rainbow ribbon to hang it on!!  Roll Eyes

She was presented to their troop leader after the 20th anniversary party and I was sent a lovely little piccie of them together Smiley

Thanks for lookin  Cool

20  Rob Zombie?!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FruityLoops on: January 05, 2011 02:51:17 PM
Time for more owls??

So I've never been a particular fan of owls, I mean they're ok but I wouldn't want to marry one, and yet recently all I want to do is make more and more owl stuffies (see previous post)!  Not girly cutesy owls though, I make the odd girly one on request, but I prefer my owls to be a little dangerous.... like Rob......

Rob is a Zombie Owl. He wasn't always though. Poor Rob was asleep on his sofa after a long night of drinking and playing on his games console when unfortunately a zombie caught him at his most vulnerable (e.g. hungover and half nekkid!) and the rest is history.

Now he wanders the streets with a hunger for the living... or a nice tikka masala with pilau rice and a cold beer.

Watch out little vampire bush baby, he doesn't care if you're undead, he still wants a bite!!!!

Thanks for lookin Cool
