281  Pink and Purple Diaper Cake in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by meleriffic on: April 27, 2011 03:15:23 PM


My friend is pregnant with her 5th baby and I was invited to a shower for her. The invitation said she wanted things like soaps, diapers etc.

As a mom of three myself I know all about the importance of diapers, but I didn't want to just give her a package (or two) of diapers. The crafty person inside of me would not allow it.

I got the style idea from Homemade By Jill

282  Swamp Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 27, 2011 03:10:16 PM


 I spun up this yarn a few weeks ago. It was supposed to be for a poppet I was working on, but the colors didn't work out the way I wanted. The roving was called Dragons Breath, but my husband and I thought it looked more like swamp witch hair. (I'll probably use it for that someday down the road).

It was BFL and I found it spun up a lot easier than the merino I tried previously.

It seems like I haven't posted a project in forever. I've spent the majority of my time working on a swap package. I just sent it off today so I should be able to post pictures in a few days.

I did find time to get some other things done though.

Diaper Cake


Handspun yarn (the grey was spun awhile ago)

287  Ravi in Poppet Form in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 07, 2011 09:07:02 AM
I made this poppet for a friend of mine. The poppet is based on one of my friend's characters from a D&D like game. I was also going off a picture of him that my friend created. You can see the picture here.


His hair is handspun yarn and he has two gold split rings for earrings.


He has runes/scars painted all over his body with the exception of his face and back.


The green wrap around his waist was hand embroidered in gold metalic thread in a scroll pattern. His manacle has real chain.

288  My Second Try in Spinning: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 03, 2011 09:05:47 AM


This is the result of my second time trying to spin.  I needed grey dreads for a poppet I was making and from what I read hand spun singles work best, so I thought I'd go ahead and give it a shot. The roving is grey merino from indigocranefiber on etsy. 

I had a lot harder time with spinning this than I did the first time I tried spinning. I think I really over drafted and so the fiber would keep breaking on me. Plus I kept hooking it wrong and when I'd give the spindle a spin it would unhook and go flying.

So I have a bit of fiber left over (because of my overdrafting problem) and was wondering if there was a way I could make it useable again. Is it possible to card it back together or should I just learn to felt?

BTW it worked out perfectly for the poppets hair.

My nephew's 1st birthday is coming up in a few weeks, and as I was just getting around to sending a very late Christmas package (I know I know, bad aunt. I had everything before Christmas, it's just somehow I didn't get it sent out.) I thought I'd throw in a present for his birthday.

I got the idea off of etsy and thought I'd give it a try. It's pretty cute and I plan on making another one for my son in the next few months. Plus, as a bonus, it's all stuff I had lying around. Oh, yeah, it's a patchwork color cloth book.
