1  Babysitters teaching tool in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by PetStoreGirl on: July 31, 2009 12:02:40 PM
So as a babysitter I get asked a lot of questions from the wee one I watch during the week. Things like what time is it? When is mommy picking me up and can we have lunch yet? Let me remind you she is only 3 and full of these questions so when ever I can i try to get her to answer her own questions with teaching tools. I was recently watching Miss Spider's Sunny Patch with her and they made a sun dial out of webs and pictures to show the little buggy's how to tell time. I thought I can do that. So I took an old clock printed off pictures of normal day activites and placed them in the hour slot where they normally occured. I also removed the Minute hand, since she is only three and this would only confuse her. I then placed a frame filled with circles around the outside of all the pictures and vuala.

this shows when she gets dropped off with me (Car), lunch time (Lunch Pail), nap time (Kitty and Puppy sleeping)

Nap time cont., When momma picks her up (Mommy holding Katherine), and this was made during her nap time the only time I have to really do anything lol.

Play time (Kids in the grass), Dinner time (Dinner plate), Bed Time (Winnie the pooh)

Then there's waking up (Sun), Breakfast (Bagels), and another Play time.

I can't wait to see it in action since she's still getting used to me asking her what time it is insted of the other way around. Thanks for looking.

2  Sister's hat! Picture heavy!!! in Needlework: Completed Projects by PetStoreGirl on: March 07, 2009 05:26:34 PM
So my sister came to me with a blank black hat that she apparently stole from a ex-love interest and asked me to put a skull and cross bones with a bow on it. I did and then I continued doodling until this was the outcome. oh and the white lines from my gel pen haven't washed off yet so please disregard them!

The bird is my favzies!!!

Her skull that started it all

I also love that tree!

Some of the items are glow and the dark! I got ahold of some glow in the dark thread and I just got overly excited!! The glow in the dark items include the skull, the striped flag, the head phones, music notes, flowers, planet and stars, and the card symbols. But she wears it all the time now so I'm pretty sure she's pleased.

Thanks For looking!

3  Slouchy knit hat (PICS) in Knitting: Completed Projects by PetStoreGirl on: February 09, 2009 07:44:09 AM
First ever without a pattern I am really proud of it even if it doesn't look perfect on me! I did a lace pattern all around the top and the brim was knit 1 round purl the next for 7 rounds. I don't know the amount of sts I used but it fits great for the look I wanted.

Note all these pictures were taken for this but they all scream Myspace poser lol!

4  Irish christmas Scarf (Image Heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by PetStoreGirl on: November 17, 2008 03:11:43 PM
So Christmas is on its way and I am rather broke so I decided to make a ton of my gifts as well as start early  so that I can save money for registration for my car. So Since my sister has this thing for IRELAND and plans to go in a few years for the summer. So I asked her how to spell it and I even spell checked it and they both told me it was spelt IERLAND So I used it...

And I didn't notice until I put the tassels on!! Although I'm very embarrassed I'm not getting rid of it! She is going to know she was the one who caused this mistake and she will be able to tell all the handsome Irish men about me when she wears it. And then they come home with her marry me and we'll live happily ever after.....::Shakes head:: Sorry any way here are the misspelled pictures.



Well that's it and lets hope my dream comes true!

5  Sister's tote PICTURE HEAVY in Needlework: Completed Projects by PetStoreGirl on: September 27, 2008 08:38:42 PM
So I made a harry potter tote a while back that was inspired by another craftster's project and my younger sister was mildly impressed with it and then demanded I make her one with birds since she has this obsession with things with wings and or the ability to fly. So, I found a quote and I drew up a little design for her bird tote. I  know she told me the details of the book including the name but all I remember is it's about mutant teenagers who grow wings? IDK. Any way the individual birds and feathers are colored and sized based on the characters in the book and their importance/characteristics. The large golden/amber bird is the main character, the baby white feather is the youngest character, and the black feather is a character with black wings. It's fun but I'm just not that good of a listener for all the details! Sorry sis!
OKay picture time!

I wish I had a better image of the quote but it says, "A forest bird never wants a cage." By Henrick Ibsen

I had a lot of fun with the clouds and water ripples! Hope you all enjoy!

6  Reappostered chair (Picture heavy) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by PetStoreGirl on: August 14, 2008 09:46:02 PM
So Have you ever wanted to complete a challenge but can never seem to do it until it's over...Huh well it happened to me. I wanted to complete the hot seat challenge and I didn't. About a month of so later I see this god awful chair on the side of the road with a free sign on it. So what does any craftster do? I took it. I stripped it down and used a stapler to put some really awesome brown and blue fabric on it.

hard at work

Me trying to be artsy

The only left over fabric

The fabric I'm going to make the pillows,arm cozies, and skirt with

And finished

7  Star Patch Pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by PetStoreGirl on: August 14, 2008 09:27:18 PM
I'm not sure if this fits here or not but I kinda reconstructed these pants so I'm not sure. Well to start off my father hates these pants they have holes and are not exactly fitting for a "girl". I agreed with him about the holes but these are my favorite pants and I just can't throw them out so I did some patch work. Basically I traced stars over the holes, pinned cute fabric underneath, sewed along the star outline, and cut out the fabric above the patch. I think it looks cool and my father is slightly impressed but still doesn't like them....that might be why I do...anyway here are some pics.

Couple of my favorite Patches

The Finished Project
I think they are rather cool
