1  "adopt me!" bandannas in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Jarheadwed on: April 01, 2008 09:03:19 PM
I made this bandanna for my foster puppy to get him noticed. He's so cute but really shy so I figured he needed a little style.

Kevin with it on, but its blurry because puppies wiggle all the time

Better shot.

What do you think, is it cute enough to get my pooch adopted? I am thinking I might make more for the dogs to wear at adoption days in the rescue president wants some.

ps- the seams look crooked but they're not, the bandanna was curled up on my lap a bit.

2  no-sew fleece dog bed in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Jarheadwed on: March 30, 2008 07:41:45 PM
I was rummaging around in a spare closet for who knows what and found a foam mattress pad, folded in quarter. I took it out and brought it out the living room, where the puppy immediately pounced on it. I used some USMC fleece (my hubby is enlisted) and made this dog bed. Now, we have two dog beds so the foster puppies can quit stealing my dog's bed.

the bed itself

Kevin my lovely assistant modeling the bed for your viewing enjoyment. He is a 30lb lab/shep puppy, so it gives you an idea of the bed's size.

I received too!

I got a really cute outfit to wear for when DH gets home from Iraq, a ACU tote bag with cute orange ricrac (oh ricrac, how I love thee) which will be good for trips to the PX, a dream catcher to keep my dreams of him safe, a photo album for pics of my handsome devil dog, and a little wristband, which I can wear when I go on my daily walk around base! Thank you very much, your sewing skills are better than mine by far! I love it all, you did a great job!

The pics are a little blurry, sorry!

4  Re: Loved One in the Military Swap Round 2! SIGNUPS CLOSED! in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Jarheadwed on: January 27, 2008 04:51:41 PM

My avatar is a pic of us too, but here's him. We are both 24, and went to high school together, but didn't start "dating" until he was in Iraq for his first tour. He found me on Myspace (how nerdy) and we started talking again. He stole me from another Marine, a Sgt no less! We have been married for about five months now- newlyweds. He is in Iraq for the third time, for 13 months this time. He is corporal in the USMC, and his MOS is heavy equipment, which keeps him out of having to do grunt work in Iraq. We live on a Marine base, which is okay, but not totally my thing- any rumors you guys hear about how hardcore and strict the Marines are, its totally true. And they're snobs about it, too  Smiley but in a fun way. He'll EAS shortly after he gets back from Iraq, and we're both looking forward to that! Oh, and about me- I work form home as an independent contractor, which means I work four hours a day and spend the rest of my time crafting and watching tv. I am losing my mind to boredom.

5  for my deployed groom in Valentine's Day by Jarheadwed on: January 23, 2008 08:22:40 PM
I made my husband this little shrine thingy for him to put near his bunk. I used shrinky dinks for the banners and the birds, and everything else is paint, glitter, and paper. The picture is of us, walking away from the camera on our wedding day.

6  advent calendar in Winter Holidays by Jarheadwed on: January 23, 2008 08:14:59 PM
After christmas, I found this advent calendar on sale. I bought it and made it cool. It was boring burgundy when I got it, and now its all pretty! The knob from Dec 7th fell off, so I need to glue it back on, and then its done.

10  Mid-Westernized Day of the Dead hoodie in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Jarheadwed on: September 15, 2007 10:49:34 PM
Despite only having been to Mexico once (border town) I really dig Day of the Dead art. I fancied up this plain hoodie for my sister's birthday by sewing a very Mid-Westernized Day of the Dead-esque skull on it. I'm too new to put photo's directly in, so please follow the links-
