1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 69 ENTRIES / Indoor Quidditch set on: December 02, 2011 06:55:05 AM
Every year I ask my kids what I can make them for christmas that they actually want. Normally its a hat, gloves but this year my son came up with two very off the wall (harder) ideas.
One was a quidditch set that he could pretend with but he wanted to play with it inside.
So here are the pictures.
Its a "chest" with two bats, two bludgers (held down with chains) the quaffle and then in the corner is a box with the snitch. I crocheted everything but the bats they are made with felt and the outside of the chest is covered in felt too.

Everything outside the box

The inside:

Thanks for looking I can't wait to see his reaction (and his sister's reaction she wanted it after I told her I was actually doing it!!)
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / TRON Legacy- Quorra on: November 01, 2011 03:57:10 AM
My daughter was set on being Quorra from Tron Legacy. We bought the wig and she wore my boots!
The outfit is made of pleather and glow in the dark paint, She settled for greenish glow in the dark instead of the blue because I couldn't figure it out!
She was happy so that's all that matters.
Sorry for the bad expression, I didn't take the picture!! (too busy doing the other kids costumes at the last minute!!)
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 67 ENTRIES / Glasses Case on: October 07, 2011 05:56:42 PM
Well my 11 year old daughter just got her first set of glasses. This challenge was perfect timing as she wanted a custom glasses case. She did all the work!! So here it is:

It has a magnetic closure and the inside is yellow flannel so not to scratch the lenses!
Thanks for reading, have a great day!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Gorilla --from a hat (edited to add before picture) on: October 06, 2011 08:20:58 AM
I did a race where at the end they gave you a Warrior (viking) hat. Well my son has been in love with the book "Goodnight Gorilla" and so I decided to make the hat into a gorilla.

Here is my gorilla:

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / The Big Bang Theory Game Pieces on: February 03, 2011 10:10:18 AM
I am making a Big Bang Theory game for my husband and came up with these for the pieces. I am not very good at poly clay (I rush and have little patience) so there was NO way I could do the actual characters!

Here are my pieces: An atom, Sheldon's t-shirt, a penny blossom, the black thing is a pin that Howard always wears (its supposed to be an alien pin!) and the Green Lantern's lantern.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Travel Necklace thingy! on: November 12, 2010 02:56:57 PM
So I'm thinking this should go in this category because it is sort of a cross between a jewlery bag for travel and an individual necklace wallet sort of thing. (If its not let me know and i"ll move it!)
So story behind this:
My mom always takes necklaces when she travels. most places that have storage for necklaces in bags have a little compartment that you have to wind up the necklace or its rung in a circle. Well in her case it almost always ends up having at least one knot in it. So after a suggestion from my father (who helps with most knots) I couldn't find anything in any store. And only had a basic idea of how to keep necklaces seperate. I attempted this. let me know your thoughts, on to a picture:

So basically the black string below is being my model necklace.
So you string your necklace through the elastic and then loop the blue at the other end (it has velcor so you can adjust how big your necklaces are). I only did four seperate sections as I dont think she'll be taking more than that. To close it you then flip the top over the necklaces and fold and then use the thing that is at the bottom, just some elastic in a casing sort of a hair scrunchie type thing!!
Hope it makes sense:
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Cookie Monster! on: November 01, 2010 03:57:43 PM
I made this with blue fleece for my 15 month old son. He ended up falling asleep halfway through trick or treating. Oh well he was a cute little monster.
The costume was made by using one of his pajamas as a pattern, but then I realized I didn't buy the right size zipper so there was a slight change in plans!!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / circular needle help! its twisted! on: October 26, 2010 02:22:45 PM
So I can knit on straight needles no problem, even learned to cable. But I need help with circular needles. I bought some and found a decently easy pattern to make a basic beanie. But I can't figure out how to connect it without it getting twisted. Do I need to do something to the needles when I take them out of the package so they don't twirl up on themselves? Or is there some special technique I don't know about. Any help because I'm determined to not let them go to waste. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!
9  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 55 ENTRIES / Paperoni Mama on: October 03, 2010 03:45:56 PM
So I showed this challenge to my ten year old daughter and we needed to do this. I was stumped. SO my daughter to the rescue! She decided that her paperonis would be perfect. What was a mother to do? Sit down and help her out!! So without further babble here is our entry:

Thanks for looking!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hockey puck on: May 06, 2010 06:49:25 AM
Back in December I made my daughter the huge donut that was posted on here for her birthday. After she got it my son promptly asked for a Blue's hockey puck but it had to be as big as his sister's donut. Working while he was at school this is what I gave him, (this was the only picture I had that was decent)
