11  Skully Princess Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BadVal on: April 13, 2008 03:29:38 PM
I recently found this rad skull and crossbones fabric at JoAnn's and had to get it. I used New Look 6688 view E. I tweaked it a little and left the zipper off. It was quick and easy (my favorite kind of project) plus Bellee LOVES it! Yeah!

Now she wants me to put bows on it, she's such a girly girl  Cheesy

12  everything resin in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by BadVal on: March 04, 2008 11:40:37 AM
this is my second attempt at resin. They turned out better this time, there are still bubbles in a few but oh well. here it goes:

These I think are my favorites. There are all found items from my trip to the beach last spring. Some of the beach glass just turned clear in the resin (lesson learned).

These are pieces of my printer that died last month and was dismantled for possible craft uses

These are chips of semi precious stone, turquoise beads ans more found items from the beach

There was lots of resin left after I did all the pieces I "planned" so I grabbed whatever was handy these are led bulbs from some old Xmas lights and jelly beans

These are just glitter but they are soooo very sparkly they make me smile

Thanks for looking!

13  Plastic Knuckles! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by BadVal on: March 01, 2008 02:39:03 PM
Last night I got the urge to shrink some dinks! So I busted out the prismas and went to work! After a six pack of Newcastle cutting shrinky-dinks with a box cutter (I couldn't find the xacto) is not a good idea. I ended up drunkly staring into the toaster oven at the lone survivor of "the dink massacre of '08". Oh well, drunken crafting is still fun and I still have ten fingers so it's all good, right?
Anyways, I love this piece and now have to make it's twin for my sister.

14  Oh no, Mr Bill! in Completed Projects by BadVal on: March 01, 2008 09:06:36 AM
So..... I don't know where else to post this, but my husband is very proud of it and wanted me to post it for him. (I guess my crafting addiction is contagious!)

Anyway this is a shooting target he made from left over foam (from his job) and a tomato cage. It's roughly 10" thick and stands about 5 feet. The targets are stickers bought from the wal-mart.

(As you can see our two year old is also very excited about it)

He's on his way out to destroy it now. I'll post some after shots if anything survives Cheesy
Kinda strange for craftster I know but thanks for looking!

15  Grease Monkey Spawn in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BadVal on: February 14, 2008 11:50:58 AM
Imagine my surprise! Yesterday at the goodwill my pink princess picked out a green and blue flaming skull shirt to make into a dress!! (Maybe she really is my daughter and NOT an alien implant after all!)

Anyways, it's 100% polyester. Yuck Tongue. It basically unraveled constantly, which was a pain in the butt. Other than that it was pretty quick and easy, took about an hour. This is my husbands "favorite dress ever!" He's the typical North-American-Grease-Monkey and can't wait to take her and show all his friends. 

These were the best shots I could get, we're having a wiggly day.

Here's a close up of the fabric. I recently liberated it from my sister's stash Grin

17  soda + curtains = overalls in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by BadVal on: January 08, 2008 08:42:11 AM
Like an idiot I drank a "liter of cola" last night around eight o'clock. For the average person this wouldn't be a big deal, but to a caffeine sensitive person like me it means I'm not gonna sleep for at least six hours. So what's a hopped up craftster to do?
Dismantle some curtains and make overalls!

I think they turned out pretty good considering my hands were shaking and I could hardly sit still. The heart is made of felt and stitched on with embroidery floss.
I couldn't get Bel to turn around so I'll have to post more pics when she takes them off.

18  a dragon fit for a princess in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by BadVal on: December 31, 2007 12:19:13 AM
My daughter is almost three and like most girls in her age group, she is obsessed with all things pink and girly. This goes against everything I know, but I try to be understanding and hope she'll grow out of it. (I know she's gonna be a cheerleader just to spite me Tongue)
Anyways back to the point; she has recently fixated on princess/knight/castle things. She dresses up in her little princess outfits and clomps around in plastic shoes. (It's pretty cute) The other day she started asking for a pet dragon, so I went to the fabric store and raided their remnants bin. $2.50 later I had all the felt I needed to construct a new friend. He has button joints, so he can dance with her and his purple tummy is made from an old pair of her jammies.

I think he turned out pretty good. I even made eyelids, which was a first for me. Anabel hasn't met her new pet yet (she's in bed) so we'll find out in the morning if he's a hit.
Sorry for the lack of pics, my camera just sucked all the life out of the batteries.

19  Another card belt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BadVal on: December 29, 2007 11:24:35 PM
I just found this post:

Being the impatient person I am I couldn't wait for a tute. So I just sewed some cards together and wound up with this:

I think it could be better. I took an old belt, hacked the ends off and sewed them onto the cards I already sewed together.
The action shot:

Please excuse the messy bathroom. Cleaning cuts into my crafting schedule. Grin

20  Stash buster puppets in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by BadVal on: December 23, 2007 01:22:21 AM
I made a bunch of oven mit-ish puppets for X-mas presents. These are the ones for my daughter. This project was a real stash buster and a lot of fun. They all have button eyes and embroidered faces. I made three set of the same animals so there were 24 all together (By the end I was hating puppets) I decided to go with the oven mit design because it seemed alot easier and one of my nephews freaks out over puppets that have moving mouths. I'm not sure what that's about. They turned out pretty good and my 2 year old play tested they a few months ago with rave reviews. Hopefully her cousins agree.

The blue and red one that looks like a bunny is supposed to be a dog. Other than that I think they are pretty obvious.

Thanks for looking!
