Thanks, I hope they like them!
Embroidering onesies is so much fun.

Always, I did NOT know there was a thread about RAKs, and will now hunt it down for more ideas. I love your idea of parking lot surprises, too! Did you huddle in your car and peek at the responses? I would have been tempted. It's just fun thinking somebody got it and liked it and maybe had a little better day because of it, though, isn't it?!!

evilSabina,  here's the quote I stumbled on..."At club many of the gals have made bags and purses and use the dollar store metal measuring tapes to use for a snap closure and they work GREAT! This would take the place of buying a steel purse closure frame.
I haven't seen this tip posted and it is really a cool closure, your bag looks very professional and snap shut.
You buy a metal tape measure, cut to length (for each side) and round the ends, and then insert the tape measure into the casing. It is recommended to duck tape the ends to keep it from cutting your material." from here .

I tried it with a $2 tape measure from Dollar General and by doggies, it WORKS. It's as cute as a button and I figure I can get 12-13 out of that one tape measure. Lots cheaper than zips, and interesting, too. That's what's on the little flowered bag in the picture. Here's an inside shot:

LaughingLark, watch out for those dreaded adhesions forming in the first 2-4 weeks! Don't overdo, please, unless you LIKE crafting from a bed! Hope you're on your feet and painfree soon!

MissKerouac, those onesies are adorable. I might need a pair for my teens. Their sizes have changed, but they still love a good sibling row!!

Ok seriously guys, stop making awesome projects. My list is up to like 150 projects now (no...really...it is) Cheesy
Too bad I'm not a speedy crafter like Always! I'm sure she can get 150 projects done in a year! Dang. Now I'm really jealous.

Thank you graced! Of course, now I need to add to my list. Smiley

OMG how cute are those Onesies!? I've been wanting to embroider some for my new nephew, maybe some MMA style? Those are adorable.

I really need to take pictures of the granny square messenger bag I am almost finished with and the doggie bed, but at least I am caught up with this month's list. Now to see if I can get started on my tshirt quilt. It requires DH's descisions of which tshirts he wants to retire, and the ones he'd throw a fit if I cut up. Hoping I can get some tshirt yarn out of it too! Yay, then my tshirt rug will come along nicely also! Have a great weekend all!

1. Stuff & sew a new doggie bed.
2. Make my self new ergonomic wrist cushions for mouse & keyboard.

3. Plaster and decorate my own Mardi Gras masks. - Sadly I could not find my plaster strips. Sad
4. Bake ButterBeer cupcakes. And more Butter Beer.

so much wonderful stuff...it really does seem as if I can't keep up with all the wonderfulness!

I got a new book last weekend, it called crobots! they are crocheted robots and they are awesome! I have several requests from my co-workers for their own little crobots. I just finished up the first one, they will get a combined post when I have more done, but he does count as his own project

I have the Crobots book but haven't had a chance to make anything out of it yet. I might make my son one of them for this Christmas. Smiley

I keep looking at the Crobots book, but my robot fans is not quite three, and those aren't really suited to children. Plus after so many dragons and other chracters made in the round, I think the finicky process of making individual sides and sewing together would annoy me. The project I'm working on now has joined rounds, with chaining and slip stiches instead spirals, and just that is driving me nuts. I hate that ugly line that it leaves in the work.
