21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / All the ladybugs danced, at the ladybug picnic. on: July 28, 2007 08:09:46 PM
I thought of the Sesame Street counting cartoon while I was making this bag.

Here's a closeup of the button.  I can't do zippers, but I love me some cute buttons!

I think the front of the wallet needs something.  What do you think?

Here's the inside of the wallet.

Here's a shot of the inside.

I was thinking of doing the straps in solid red and starting them at the top of the red band.  I'm really not sure about the wallet.  Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks for looking!
22  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mommy, where's my shirt? on: July 27, 2007 06:22:01 AM
I hope this is where this project goes.  It's not really a toy, but it's not really clothes either. 
My children love Noggin.  They especially love Jack's big music show.  On groundhog day, they had a video from Steve Burns, that my two littlest ones adore.  We watch it every day on Noggin's website.  My three year old has been asking for ears, and I can't say no to a crafty challenge.  I included a shot from the video, so you could see my inspiration.

When I asked her to put them on so I could take a picture, she said no because she needed a groundhog shirt to wear with it!
Oh, and I can't take credit for the dress, that was a present from a crafty relative.
23  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My bunchy Romper on: July 25, 2007 12:57:59 PM
I got inspired by all the rompers, and I had to try it.  A friend of mine gave me a bunch of hand-me-downs that included some shirts that were large enough- yea, free clothes! 
My son is still in diapers, so I needed snaps on the bottom for easy access.  Still, the total cost of the outfit was only 50 cents for the snaps.

He's playing with one of my measuring tapes.  It only kept him still for a little while.

So, I turned on Clifford.

The snap tape made it kind of bunchy, so I need to do more work on the crotch part, but it turned out pretty well for my first!  I actually used my zipper foot! (It gives me chills just looking at it Sad )I have enough tape and shirts for two more rompers, maybe my next post will be better.

If any one has suggestions for the next two, I will be thrilled!
24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / So many friends, so little time... on: July 23, 2007 07:00:34 PM
Here's another bag requested by a friend.  I'm in love with the fabric, and there's just enough left to make myself a smaller bag.  Aahh, the perks of making things for friends!
Here's a shot of the fabric detail.
A shot of the bag and wallet open.  It's about 12 inches tall.  The bag, not the wallet! Grin

This shot shows the outside of the wallet, but the lining color is off.

This is the actual color of the lining.
Sorry for all the pics, but this one I actually love so I got excited.
25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Here it is...I'm not happy with it. on: July 21, 2007 07:28:23 PM
I had another request for a bag from a friend. 

She gave me this fabric.  This is not a fabric I would have chosen, mostly because it is so slippery.  I could not get the interfacing to stick. (You can kinda see the fabric bubbling in the picture.)  I couldn't really turn the iron up any higher because of the fabric;  I scorched my test swatch.  Any help from someone who has conquered this problem would be appreciated!
26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Never Again!!! on: July 19, 2007 08:21:44 PM
One of my husband's co-workers asked me to make her a cell phone cover.  Sure, I can do it; I can do anything! (famous last words)
Well, four days and five attempts later, this is the result...

The matching thing behind it is an eye pillow.
Well, the good news is I have a lot of fancy puppets for my 18 month old to play with!
27  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pshaw, who needs patterns? Apparently me! on: July 09, 2007 10:03:52 AM
I wanted to make my (tiny) three year old daughter a dress for July 4.  She spills everything, so I wanted it reversible.

I measured her really well, and even set the straps in more than a regular dress because she has problems with straps falling down.  After I got it all put together, it wouldn't go down over her head!  That's why the hem isn't finished.  I got frustrated.  The matching head-kerchief fits her really well, though.  It's a good thing I have friends with smaller girls than her!
28  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Crafty! (and cheap!) on: July 06, 2007 10:39:45 AM
My sister always calls me "crafty," so I decided to make a shirt to celebrate that fact.

The only problem was I forgot to flip the image, so I ruined the first transfer.  BUT being the cheap-o that I am, I just put the backwards transfer on the back!

No waste!
(Sorry it's wrinkled- I HATE ironing!)
29  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Bitty Davis Eyes on: June 30, 2007 07:44:17 PM
I have 4 kids, terrible allergies, and don't sleep much.  But I refuse to look ridiculous with those eye gel thingies, so I made my own!  I fill them with rice and dried chamomile or dried peppermint and keep them in the fridge.  They work great!
I've made all different colors, one to match every possible mood or pair of pj's I own.
30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Chinese Takeout Doggie-Style! on: June 30, 2007 06:49:06 PM
Hey! So I got tired of doing the usual Chinese takeout, so I did it doggie-style!  I actually made a couple of these, and they were claimed within hours of me carrying the first one to work with me.
Let me know what you think!
