101  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Blocks Throw on: March 24, 2012 10:56:59 AM
I used the Baby Blocks Throw pattern from Lion Brand to make my upcoming nephew a blanket. I wanted to go with a monochromatic color scheme and so chose 4 shades of blue from Hobby Lobby's "I Love this Yarn" line. It used almost all of each skein.

102  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Car Seat Quilt on: March 24, 2012 10:53:10 AM
Awhile ago I found a pattern on the Moda Bake Shop site for a car seat quilt. I really liked the idea of a blanket you could tie on so the baby couldn't kick it off, or it wouldn't slide off onto the ground so I decided to make one of my own for my upcoming baby.

I used the Good Fortune fabric line from Moda.

103  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Dragonfly Panel Quilt on: March 09, 2012 08:36:38 AM
I saw this panel in Joannes and as it was my favorite colors and I have a baby girl due the middle of April I couldn't resist buying it.

I ended up quilting around the dragonflies and the flowers in the colored squares, as well as all the inner and outer lines of the paisley pattern. On the edges I just swirled around the flowers.  I had a few issues with the binding, but all in all I really love how it turned out.

104  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Special Delivery Blanket on: February 19, 2012 09:03:11 AM

I made this blanket for my nephew using the Special Delivery Pattern from Coats and Clark. It was supposed to be 37 x 37, but my pregnancy brain messed up and it ended up being 27 x 37. It should work good for a car seat blanket if nothing else though.

I used 1.5 skeins of Bernet Softee Baby in Denim Marl and half a skein of Bernet Softee in Lemon.

Here's a close up of the stitches used.
105  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Darling Daisy Dolls on: February 03, 2012 11:12:51 AM

I'm having a little girl in April and wanted to make her a baby doll. My SIL is having a baby in August, and while we don't know what she's having yet, I thought I'd make an extra doll in case it turns out to be a girl. If not, maybe my little one will get two.

They're made from the Darling Daisy Pattern by Alison Berry.
106  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Bobble Blanket on: January 27, 2012 10:22:48 AM
This is the biggest crochet project I've managed yet. I saw this super cute baby blanket online and luckily, the creator shared tips on how she made it. She in turn got the idea from someone else, who also gave tips on making the blanket.

I used Bernet Satin in Lavender and ended up using just shy of 9 skeins. I used a J hook, but could have easily used a larger hook to make it go faster as the fabric is pretty dense. Size wise it is approximately 39 inches by 37 inches.
107  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mira, the Leshy Poppet on: September 22, 2011 07:03:33 PM
My husband has created a table top RPG world that we play games in every Friday night. So for his birthday I wanted to give him a poppet based on a race from that world.

The race I chose was the Leshy. They are based on the slavic mythological creature only in my husbands world they can be female as well as male.  Here is a wikipedia description of the leshy "He has hair and a beard made from living grass and vines, and is sometimes depicted with a tail, hooves, and horns. He has pale white skin that contrasts with his bright green eyes."

And here is my leshy. Her name is Mira.

108  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pearl and Crystal Wedding Necklace on: September 07, 2011 05:35:07 PM
My brother-in-law is getting married on the 17th and I made his bride a necklace. Her dress is covered in pearls and every once in a while there is a sequin that gives it a bit of sparkle. She's planning on wearing diamond studs and she wanted the necklace to match the earrings and her wedding ring. HE wanted it to not cover much of her neck.

So I got online and looked around and found a necklace that looked like it would work. Then I replicated it. This is the end result.

109  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Crystal Bracelet on: August 16, 2011 06:30:40 PM
This was my first time trying bead weaving and I love it! The pattern comes from the book Beaded Allure. I made it the size she suggested, but because I used the wrong size closure beads it came out slightly larger. So it's a tiny bit too big for me. Oh well. Next time I'll know better.

110  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doll Diaper Bag on: August 05, 2011 08:29:19 PM

I made this doll diaper bag for my daughters birthday. I found the tutorial at Twelve Crafts Till Christmas. The only thing I did different was pocket placements.
