21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Nintendo Mario scarf on: November 01, 2008 08:06:37 AM
I'm dying to recreate this for my DH for Christmas - How did you do the Mario image? Is it crocheted within each row, or was it cross-stitched on after you finished the main body of the scarf?

Looks great! Wish I could do that, but I need to limit my craftiness at some point. But I'm willing to pay $$ for those things that I choose not to make!  Anyway - I'm glad she loved and appreciated it!

that's too cute! I just saw a pattern for a flying pig (crochet) the other day and bookmarked it! May have to make it soon now. Smiley
25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wallet from a Pizza Box on: August 02, 2008 06:27:33 AM
I made this back in May just for fun. Smiley **Sorry for the blurry pictures**  Found the pattern at:

You could use any food box you wanted, provided it was made from a lightweight cardboard. I chose a frozen pizza box.  It's really easy to do, took less than 10 minutes.  It would be cool to just have in your purse or pocket, show how green you are.  I used a rubber band for the closer, but a piece of elastic would have probably been better. I was in a crafting mood though, not a buying mood.

Thanks for looking!

I'm really excited about thesE! I usually save the card fronts to use as gift tags for the next Christmas, but I love this idea, too!

Also, for those who asked about buying for teenagers... (they have to be the hardest group to buy for. All they want is money or gadgets)...

I have no idea about boys, but there is a really cool posting for fabric curlers here on craftster that I've thought about saving for when my nieces are that age: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=235779.0  I know I would've LOVED something like this when I was in high school.
28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Christmas 2008, what are you making this year? on: July 31, 2008 07:08:00 PM
My in-laws have 12 grandchildren and are always gaining more. Any suggestions for people who LOVE being grandparents more than anything in the world?

This isn't really craft-related and would cost money, but do you have a zoo or children's museum in your area? Maybe a membership for the year would be good for this couple.  They're usually not that expensive and they could take all of their grandkids whenever they wanted to.  For craft-related items.... I saw once where someone made a framed wall hanging of a fabric-pieced tree and then they "hung" small frames that had pins on the back to the tree on different branches. EAch tree had a child's picture in it.  It would be a gift that could keep "growing", you would just need to buy/make new frames w/ each new "leaf.".

This is a great idea. Did you freeform these? Or was there a pattern or idea you followed?
30  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Gift or Card Ideas For Parents Who Lost Their Child? on: July 31, 2008 05:43:40 PM
I agree with whoever said that in the beginning you're not ready to accept anything, except an ear to talk to and a shoulder to cry on. I have lost 2 children to miscarriage and the worst part is that people are afraid to talk to you or be near you.  But after a while, on a special day such as mother's day, the baby's birthday, or some other special day, then something would be nice. Something to show that you remembered the baby did exist and was important.  If you are good with drawing, a sketch or maybe a painting of the baby would be beautiful framed. Or a shadow box with a pair of booties/shoes, a lock of hair and a picture.  I know this is a really old topic, but I wanted to add my two cents to it. And now I'm crying, so I'm going to sign off now.  Cry Cry Cry Cry
