11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Even more animal hats! (pic heavy) on: March 20, 2010 11:55:21 PM
I've made more hats!  My boyfriend's mom decided that she needed some, so I've made some for the bf to bring home over spring break.

This one is definitely my favorite hat yet.  It's a ram (in case you couldn't tell).  My boyfriend's stepdad follows the Rams for football, so I've made this hat for him to wear to games.  I really hope he wears it...I don't know if he's silly enough to wear something like this though.
Originally, when I got the request for a ram hat, I thought I was going to have to experiment with wire for the horns.  However, after looking at the team logo, it seemed like the horns stay pretty close to the head, so I was able to just stuff them a lot and tack them down in a few places.  Honestly, when I got the request I was like "How am I going to do that???" but I just went for it and it worked =D.
Anyway, here it is!

And front view:

This red and black bear hat is for my boyfriend's mom.  She follows the Cardinals, so she wanted one with those colors.  I'm really glad she didn't ask for a bird hat, because I have no idea how I would do that...

And here's my first baby hat!  I had to look up measurements online for this and I have no idea whether it's going to fit or not as I don't have access to any babies...but it matches up with the measurements I found online, so I think it will work. 
This one's a puppy!  I tacked down the ears so they would stay folded in half.  Before I did that, it kind of looked kangaroo-ish.  I originally planned to embroider the face, but I just wasn't getting the nose right, so I decided to just sew on fleece bits. 

Last one.  Finally I get to post an action shot, as this one's for me, yay!  I'm going home tomorrow and I decided that my sisters and I need matching bear hats.  As that would require me to make three hats, I only had time for something pretty simple.  I've only taken a picture of mine, but the other two are the same but in different colors. 

Incidentally, I also reconned the shirt I'm wearing in that last pic, but that's another craftster post for another day.  I decided it was getting too dark to be taking pictures, so I'll have to do another photo session to get that.

Sorry if this post is kinda incoherent and rambly...it's late. 
As always, I'd love to get C&C from all of you!
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Panda Hat! on: March 17, 2010 07:18:12 PM
A lot of my friends have been asking for panda hats, so I came up with a design!  At first, I was using only fleece circles for the eyes, but I decided that looked a bit messy so I changed the eyes to a button and a fleece circle under the button.  So to figure out the eye shape, I google image searched "panda" and spent about half an hour going "awww!"  This was one of my favorites: http://perfectpandas.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/funny-pictures-human-apologizes-to-panda1.jpg  SO CUTE! 

Anyway, here are the pictures:

13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Animal hats! Unicorn, Giraffe, and Cal Bear (pic heavy) on: March 14, 2010 12:17:40 AM
I've been making these fleece hats lately, thought I'd share with you guys. 
The unicorn hat was made at the request of my friend.  She helped me come up with the pattern and what to include.  I shaped the horn with stuffing and some hand sewing, the rest is by machine. 

The giraffe is for me =).  I've loved giraffes since I was really little.  I remember my dad went on a business trip once and brought me back this really little stuffed giraffe.  He was about 4 inches high and could stand on his own.  I loved that giraffe so much...I don't know where he is now =(, but this hat is an homage to him. 

And here's a Cal Bear hat!  GO BEARS!  I've made one of these for myself too, I plan on wearing it to next weekend's rugby game.  Mine doesn't have the cool "CAL" applique on the back...I tend to be more lazy with hats for myself.  However, mine does have some pretty rad blue and gold pompom ties like the other two hats.  (The bf thinks he's too manly for pompoms.)

Thanks for checking this out!  Please leave comments and CC =)
14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Elephant Valentine's Day card! on: February 11, 2010 06:27:55 PM
Sorry for the awful webcam photos...I can't find my camera cord   Sad.

I made this card for my boyfriend, he thinks elephants are the most adorable thing ever.  The card was inspired by this one on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39789163
I decided I wanted balloons though, instead of the free floating hearts, (plus, I like making my own stuff) so I made my own.

Here's the front:

And the back:

I hope you like it (and he does too)!
15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / help with my first doll! on: July 09, 2008 09:34:51 PM
I'm making a doll using Runo's nekomimi pattern (http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/nekomimi/) and I'm having a bit of trouble getting the chin to look right.  I wasn't able to find the right color to do the stretchy cover for the head, so I'm just making it from the cotton cloth w/o cover (looks like the first set of pictures here: http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/nekomimi/head.html).  The chin folds over a bit, even though I have clipped the seams.  When I stuff it more to try and get it to not fold, the seams stretch and it just doesn't look right.  Ideas?
16  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Sewing machine: Singer Futura CE-150 on: January 16, 2008 03:52:05 PM
Hey guys, I hope this is in the right place.  I'm a first time poster, so just let me know if I've done everything wrong  Undecided
I'm looking at getting a singer futura ce-150 sewing and embroidery machine, it's on sale at my local Jo-Ann's for $549.99.  I'll be using it more for sewing than embroidery, but both my mom and I will be using it for some embroidery (and I'm sure I'll find a way to incorporate it into my projects if it's available!).  So, I'm just wondering if anyone has this machine and can tell me if it's worth it.  Thanks!
