1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dress-up closet collaboration on: January 23, 2010 08:36:42 AM
I had so much fun crafting and shopping for the grands this year! The favorite, hands down, was Lauryn's present. It was one of those few (for me anyway) things that actually came out better than I imagined, due in no small part to the help from my sweetie. Poppa really kicked it up a notch! I had been waiting, yes and planning, for the day the girls would be big enough for dress up. When I found out that is what Lauryn wanted for Christmas I was so excited!
I started shopping right after Halloween and got some great deals on costumes. I found a fireman, a pirate, a vampire, a witch, a princess, and of course the requisite Disney gals. Got a great deal on some dress up shoes and tiaras after Thanksgiving, throw in a few necklaces and earrings and what little girl would not be thrilled!
But wait......
"how bout a wardrobe packing box to make her a dress up closet?" said MamMaw "I could cut doors to make it a closet."
"I could cover it in fabric if you have a piece" volunteered Poppa. "We could also add a spot for her shoes and a shelf for her jewelry" he said.
"YAY! That's a great idea honey." says MamMaw running for the fabric stash.
Two days, four yards of fabric, a box cutter, antibiotic ointment, band-aids, and three cans of spray adhesive later......
Ta DA!!!!! Lauryn's dress up closet.

and open

I love collaborating with my sweetie. Can't wait to do one for Kyleigh next year!
Thanks for looking!
C  & C welcome.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Reverse Applique denim alphabet block on: February 04, 2008 09:31:46 AM

The grandboy will be turning one this weekend.
This is my favorite of all the gifts I made him. It turned out even better than I imagined (and that doesn't happen often!) so I had to share. All the letter in his name are on his block. I can wait to give it to him.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / First Embroidered Onsies on: September 18, 2007 03:22:11 PM
I have two grandbabies on the way and was so inspired by all the onesies I had to give it a go. Pics are a little dark, not sure why.
The paisley was first and might be my favorite (DDIL will love it!) but the snail is sooo cute I can't decide.

This is the back of the paisley.

I haven't decided what to put on the back of the little snail yet. 
It was slow going but I really did enjoy it.
I tried to fuse a little piece of fleece on the back of my stitch work but it came off in the wash. I thought it would protect the baby from the stitches and protect the stitches through frequent washings. Any other suggestions?
Thanks for looking!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Felt Stuffie Questions on: September 07, 2007 02:19:42 PM
I am new to felt stuffies, but I have been lurking and love the patterns from Japan. My sister and I went to lunch at our fav sandwich shop yesterday and there was a new store next door.... Japan Books! I drug sis inside and found the cutest pattern books (in Japanese of course) and had to have one.
My questions are do you sew their faces and features on after they are stuffed or before? Also how stuffed do you stuff a stuffie lol? Is one kind of felt better than another for these? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help!
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / 1st post w/pics / Quilt for my grandson on: July 31, 2007 02:12:06 PM
This is a quilt I made for my first grandchild.

It is based on a design by Tammy Tadd. I changed her bugs to circus animals. My first time with applique.

Quilting detail.... it's rail cages, box cars and train tracks(for "Brodies Circus Train")
