1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Round 3 - Sign-up through Nov 5 on: November 05, 2012 03:26:47 PM

Just a little tidbit I stitched up, needs pressing and framing. Pretty sure this was a free pattern from the anticraft, probably :/

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mermaid Costume Sweetness on: October 25, 2012 06:29:52 PM
So, I whipped up a super cute mermaid costume for my ex-wife in-law's (long story short I married and divorced her first husband and now cohabitate with her older brother and still have a wonderful relationship with my former stepdaughter - if I am not on Jerry Springer one day it will be a miracle) new baby.

It is based roughly on a purchased pattern (pretty much the shell top is the only part I followed), the mermaid princess cuddle critter cape set from Calleigh's Clips & Creations and stitched with a random assortment of yarns.

The tail:

The tiara:

The top:

This was my first attempt at crocodile stitch and I didn't quite get it from the pattern so I did some research and found an explanation that made more sense to me and winged it from there.

Thanks for looking Smiley

Minky is fairly easy to work with BUT it does (for me anyway) tendy to creep from being slickery and it also has just a bit of stretch so keeping it even with the opposing fabric can be a pain so pin well.

I received my fabulous package from lindyv321 today.  Thanks so much lindy, I love everything.

First up are two lovely wall hangings in woodgrain and Buddha themes ( I particularly adore the embroidered Buddha!)

Next we have the toadstool and bird's nest/eggs theme with a pincushion, a pendant and an eyepatch (for future reference kitties do no work well as action shot models for eye patches!)

And now my favorite (I love love love love love this!) for my pickle theme a pickley shirt!

AAAAANNNNNDDDDD Extras! Notecards, a cute little notebook with a pen, a birdhouse, a fairy book and candy! I will use several of these for gifts from the fairies that I leave outside my stepdaughters fairy door

Please excuse the gratuitous use of kitties in these pics, they liked the package a lot too!

I also received from sparky17 today - a very cute pincushion with toadstool pins and two great stamps.  Pics when I get a chance!

I finally had a spare moment to take some pictures of the seriously stupendous package that queenninjamonkey sent me and here they are!

First we have log/woodgrain: a ceramic cup/pencil holder, magnets, a beautiful bracelt, some beads, stationary, a lovely necklace with 2 additional pendants, a freakin' awesome pincushion straight off my wist (as are several other things she sent) with some toadstool pins (which was another of my themes), and super ring

Next up is my pickle theme: I am in love with needle punch embroidery thanks to queenninjamonkey and this sawheet pickle dude, and a way cute jar of pickles key chain

For my Zakka theme: a squirrel toaster cover (from Zakka Sewing, a book I must go out and get), the cutest little house coasters (also from Zakka Sewing), and some cute rubber stamps (a squirrel and a tree).  And get this....all HAND sewn!

For my Garden theme: A very nice retro camper birdhouse, a gorgeous stepping stone (the postage...egads!), and some yummy smelling hand scrub for after gardening (no pictures of it though - it is in my office with the lid off trying to banish the stench of a coworkers tiger balm)

And for Ms. Jane Austen: A what would Jane Austin do tshirt (this seriously rocks) and a beautiful altered box

And after all that there are even some extras (truly you spoiled me queenninjamonkey!) butterfly notecards and stickers (another of my possible themes) and a gorgeous necklace from my wist

I love love love everything.  Thank you so much queenninjamonkey!
