31  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Cute Bentos for my kids & How to color a (molded) hard boiled egg on: October 18, 2010 05:18:17 PM

Bento for my daughter.

Bento for my son.

I used a Q-tip and food coloring to color the Hello Kitty Egg.
Obviously I used an egg mold to make the egg into a Hello Kitty.

* Answers to questions people asked in this thread moved here for all to see  Grin *

The stitch container has ketchup for his octodog .

The recipe for the "powerball" is here  http://www.xobobox.com/lunchbox_ideas/healthy-kids-snack.html.

But I posted it below for easy access.

This Powerball recipe makes about 40 snack balls, and leftovers can be kept in the fridge or frozen with wax paper separating the layers.

  1.  Mix 1 cup peanut butter and 1 cup honey until smooth

  2.  Add 3 cups old-fashioned oats and 1/2 cup ground flaxseed

  3.  Add 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup nuts and dried fruit (any combintion of peanuts, sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, raisins, dried cranberries, chopped dates, etc)

  4.  Roll into ping-pong sized balls and store in fridge or freezer

I used chopped raisins, mini choc chips & chopped almonds. They are SOOO YUMMY!

I read online to peel the egg while it is still warm, which was hard to do, but I kept dipping it in ice water as I peeled, that helped the shell come off more smoothly. Then after I smushed the egg in the mold I soaked the entire mold in ice water for 10 mins, then I just left it in the fridge overnight IN the mold. This morning I opened the mold and that is what it looked like. This was the 1st time mine turned out well. I think the longer it is cold in the mold (hee hee) the better it will look.

I just chained somewhere between 25-30 then sc crocheted across ,ch1, turn, sc across, ch1, etc. until they fit his hands then sl st together about 5 sts, sc in 6-8 sts on one side only (leaving thumb opening) then sl st all the way down together. Then I just crocheted a circle and chained enough in red & green to stitch an "L" and an "M" on each circle and then just sewed the circles onto the warmers. Hope this helps, I didn't use an exact pattern but this is basically what I did. Smiley
33  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mario & Luigi Arm/Wrist Warmers & a Plain Black Pair on: October 16, 2010 02:44:46 PM
I was making myself some wrist warmers and my sons said they wanted some too.  Since I had made him this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=358640.msg4201480#msg4201480 Mario & Luigi Scarf already, he asked if I could make him Mario & Luigi arm warmers to match. The M on the mario one isn't perfect, but he LOVES them!!!!

My older son is into heavy metal and pretty much only wears black tshirts, so he requested plain black. Smiley

35  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Headphones Fixer- Upper on: October 14, 2010 05:15:58 AM
When we got my daughter a leapster it was obvious that we needed to get her a pair of headphones. And by obvious I mean she would turn the volume all the way UP and even after repeated requests to turn it down, the volume always seemed to creep back up.  I told my husband we should get her these nifty kid safe headphones.  The volume can't go past a reasonable level even for kids' ears. Perfect, or so I thought! They work great, but had this flimsy foam around the ear parts, notice i said had. Needless to say within 2 days the foam was ripped off and she had deemed the headphones "broken".   The husband was NOT happy with my purchase and I was not happy because she was now refusing to use them.  Well, I decided to try crocheting her some covers for them. The crocheting part was easy, the fitting the covers to the earphones was the hard part. I had to unscrew 4 screws on each side and then tie the cover underneath and screw it back together. I am hoping it holds together because she is gonna need these things for the move. So here is my handy work. I used DMC thread in 2 colors and a tiny hook.

Anyway, it doesn't look great, but it'll do!

37  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Super Easy Scarf with Puffballs on: October 13, 2010 04:56:48 AM
I found this free pattern online http://www.vickiehowell.com/uy675453/doris.pdf   
but I didn't like the ruffle on the bottom, so instead I made pom poms. The yarn is some kind of Japanese tiny boucle wool blend that is super soft and slightly fancy looking. Smiley
