11  Re: Craft My Theme Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by BeltwaySpinner on: October 31, 2007 10:05:42 PM
I know my Craftee has received, but I haven't heard from her in a few weeks, so I will post up what I made for her.

I choose her theme of 'new baby' as she is expecting her first child.

Based on her wist, I know she wanted one of those diaper changing pads with pockets for the diapers and wet wipes, but made with vinyl.  So Voila!  Flannel fabric, polarfleece edging and ties, with white vinyl interior.

Her wist also showed she liked sock monkeys, so I made this guy out of a new pair of soccer socks.  He is VERY VERY tall, but I love his long and lanky limbs.

Finally, continuing with the sock monkey theme, I did some simple appliques onto two plain white onesies.

I hope she liked everything.  Smiley

Finally got a new camera and decided to post up my son's Halloween Bento.

Edamame Zombie on a bed of Brains & Bugs  (mashed potatos with raisins), Ten Toes (faux fish sticks), and animal crackers and a Skull lollipop.

He loves his Nightmare Before Christmas bento box set.

My crafter was the lovely and talented organizer herself: Ms. SevsOnlyGirl


Fairy Stamps set!  A fat quarter of fairy fabric!  some fairy badges now residing on my jean jacket!  some homemade lemony lip balm - yummy!  and two beautiful glittery pink handmade soaps with adorable buttons in the shape of fairy figurines inside.  A Prize inside my SOAP!!!  Oh bathtime will be sooo much fun!!!  I wish I could get a good picture of the soaps, but they just photograph as pink.

flannel Jammie pants!!! in the cutest fairy print!!!  I love love love these.  I will take advantage that my hubby is deployed to live in them full-time.  No teeny sexy nighties this winter... no Sir.  I will be toasty in these.  These are probably my favorite item.

Also she painted (and I think stenciled) a beautiful fairy onto a ready to hang canvas.  Fairy Art!  I have just the spot for this, on the wall of my fairy room!

Finally, a super awesome HOODIE with a fairy stencil.  In my fave color no less!  I will probably wear this more than the pj pants this winter, because at least I can leave the house in it.  Soooo comfy and warm and oversized and snuggly!

Thank you Thank you.  Not only did my partner pick the most fun theme, she gave me a broad assortment of goodies and used a lot of my favorite colors too! 

This is my second swap, and they just keep getting better.  Its been a busy month and I am happy to have some new 'de-stress' items to bathe with and lounge around in.

I was hoping to get some outdoor pics, but I didn't get home until after dark.  I was eager to put up some pics though, so I can start using my stuff!!!

Hooray!  thank you SevsOnlyGirl for a wonderful swap!!!  It will be years before I can hope to come close to your Crafting Greatness level, but you are an inspiration.

JeepChick got her Magical creature in the mail and gave me permission to post pictures of him (I can finally use personal pronouns to describe him... "it" felt to impersonal) . . .
He actually came with some extra felted goodies for the tray, just in case JeepChick wasn't in the mood for chocolate cake, but I (surprisingly) didn't get pictures of them.
I posted a few more pictures in the needle felting board.  I can't wait to see what people are getting/to have a MC of my very own to cuddle/take care of!!

oops.  How am I only just now finding out this thread exists?   Huh  grrr...
I had posted some pics on the other thread, but will repost the one with the tea set and 'biscuits' or as we Yanks call them - cookies.

I love my Dobby! He lives on the kitchen counter - ready to serve me tea and snacks whenever I like.

NiftyKnitter, your creature is 3/4 of the way complete.  I just need to sew on the appendages and box him/her up and out. Wink

Thanks to my lovely and oh so talented partner, NIFTYKNITTER!

Dobby is fully poseable on his little stand.  Like a proper British House Elf, he comes with a serving tray and food offerings of cake, tea, and cookies.

The detail is amazing and the colors are perfect.  I can only hope my creature measures up.

I have had Dobby since last Thursday the 15th.  Sorry I am only now getting some photos up.

16  Clear Vinyl + Piping + Floaty Seahorse = CUTENESS in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by BeltwaySpinner on: July 17, 2007 05:08:26 PM

Saw this bag and fell utterly in LOVE.  I might even leave my husband and run off with this purse.  I adore seahorses and I know I can make one just as cute.

There are deep side pockets and the front is clear vinyl over blue vinyl with a seahorse 'floating' in between the layers.

I don't have a clue where to start.  I checked my local JoAnn but didn't see any vinyl.

Need to find clear and colored vinyl fabric, vinyl piping, a heavy duty zipper, and vinyl paint to write a cute slogan, decorate seahorse, add bubbles, etc.

I don't have a pattern either, but I think I can make up one myself. (HA HA HA)

I also have to hope my little Janome can handle this.  (crossing fingers) Undecided
