1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Twin Monkey Crochet Blankets on: February 19, 2012 11:42:56 AM
When I found out I was having twins, of course my mom was on the hook to make me some crocheted blankets.  After finding out it was a boy and a girl, we looked through patterns and I immediately was drawn to this one (Monkey Business designed by Jessi Martin, pattern purchased at Annie's Attic).  We are thrilled with how they turned out!

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Shower flower cupcake practice run on: August 22, 2010 04:17:17 PM
My sister-in-law is having a baby girl and her baby shower will be sometime in October.  I wanted to make and decorate cupcakes for the shower but I've never been very good at it so I felt I needed at least one practice run.  I found a nice idea online (http://www.wilton.com/idea/Cupcake-Corsages) and wanted to make cupcakes like these!  So I bought some pastel fondant and all the accessories (fondant cutters: leaves and flowers, a fondant rolling mat, a fondant roller with thickness sizing rings) and gave it a whirl.  I'm pretty pleased overall, but for the real deal I'll probably make my own fondant and use brighter colors like in the link that gave me the idea.  Also in the link, they used "sparkling sugar" on the smaller flowers which I intend to use as well, gives it a nice texture.

Love it!  Did you hand quilt it?

Thank you!  Yes, the entire process was done by hand. Smiley

Yes, it is all applique.  Smiley

This is yet another baby quilt I have recently made and it was my first attempt at a more traditional-style quilt.  The colors are slightly off in the lighting, but it is various hues of blues and greens.

I made a robot quilt and matching doll and peepee teepees.  It was inspired by a post by blue_skiesMN (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319480.0).

I there a pattern for these?  I have friends and cousins that are expecting little boys and these would be great.


What I did was use a candle that was about a 4-inch diameter to make a perfect circle on a plain piece of paper.  Then I cut out a slice of it (like a slice of pie) and connected the two open ends.  I had to trim it a few times to get the right angle on the cone.  Then I used that paper pattern to cut out the interfacing, then the fabric (two pieces with some excess on the edges to fold them over and sew by hand).  May not be as eloquent as tutorials you may find online but it worked for me!

These are hilarious.  I'm wondering if they stay put or go flying across the room.  At least they'd give you warning. lol

That would be pretty amusing if they went flying.  I wouldn't imagine they would (they are not too small, maybe 4-5 inch diameter).  I picture them functioning like the washcloths most people use to avoid the showers. Smiley
