21  baby sleep sacks in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by VeggieJess on: August 18, 2008 07:47:52 AM
Two of my friends have babies due this fall/winter, and so I started to make things for them.  I know babies aren't supposed to sleep with blankets, and here in Minnesota it gets a little chilly in the winter, so I decided to make some sleep sacks.  I made up the patterns myself.

The first one is made of a thick knit mens shirt.  It isn't actually as wonky as it looks.  I just need to iron it or something. 

The second one is made of 2 layers of flannel, and it buttons instead of zips.  I really like this one the most! Don't you just love the little owls on the inside!?

Thanks for looking!  Comments/Crits welcome!

22  my first owl stuffie! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by VeggieJess on: August 18, 2008 07:40:04 AM
I made this little owl the other day, it was so fun, and I think he looks pretty cute!

He's made of soft flannel and cotton with felt eyes, embroidered chest feathers, and is filled with eco corn glucose stuffing.  He's about 9 inches tall, and wants a hug!

Thanks for looking!  Comments/crits appreciated!

23  Leafy Teacher's Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by VeggieJess on: August 15, 2008 02:34:20 PM
I was commissioned to make this bag this week for a teacher to hold all of her papers to grade, pens and a calculator.

I am very happy with how it turned out!  I widened and lengthened my original pattern, so it is really roomy, and can fit folders horizontally or vertically.  It has a nice tie on the top to hold it closed so she can fit more stuff in it, and I put a hard bottom in it that is removable for cleaning.  She requested that so her papers wouldn't get bent and wrinkled. 
She really loves it!

Thanks for looking!  Let me know what you think!

24  Spirograph Diaper Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by VeggieJess on: August 15, 2008 02:22:17 PM
I made this diaper bag for some friends of mine who are due at the end of the year to have a baby boy! 

It has a vinyl bottom, bottle holder, and a couple pockets.  The lining is also removable so that it can be washed, or she can remove it completely to use it as a purse or tote when baby gets bigger!
I also made a travel diaper case with a changing pad, one side flannel, the other cotton.

I still have to add the snap, on the bag, though!

Thanks for looking!! Let me know what you think!

25  My Neat-o Kitchen (pic heavy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by VeggieJess on: July 28, 2008 10:00:13 AM
Sooo... My house looked REALLY terrible when we came to see it, and almost worse when we got possession of it!    Here's a pic of it when we came to look at it...

(that's the elbow of the 88 year old man who lived in it!)

Here's an idea of what the floor looked like, but it was MUCH worse if you can believe it.

We did a lot of work, and this is what it looks like now!

Here's the new flooring...

Here's our kitchen!!!

This is our awesome built-in AM radio!

This is the counter top unit that DH and I made.  There wasn't nearly enough counter space! We still need to stain the bottom.

We had this nice little pantry closet, but there were only about 4 little shelves in the way back, so we added more shelves that wrap around the back and left of the closet, and some hooks and a lid rack.  Then I painted the inside.  We can't add deeper shelves because the access to the attic is in there...

 It took us 6 days to do the floor, because the demo took 3 days (we kept running into problems!), then the new sub floor took 1 day, and the installation took 1, then sealing took 1!
  I was so tired!!!!!
Hope you all like it as much as we do! Sorry for the crummy lighting in the pics, my camera stinks!
Thanks for looking!
Comments/suggestions/etc... appreciated!

26  Neat-o Travel Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by VeggieJess on: July 16, 2008 10:21:05 AM
I made this bag for my DH for our wedding anniversary last month.  He picked out the fabric.
It is the perfect size, and has pockets on the ends, and has a toothbrush holder and toothpaste pocket, with a separator for toiletries or socks and stuff inside.   

This is my first time working with piping, and it was a little time consuming, but totally worth it!  I think it gives it something special!  I am very happy with it!

What do you think?

27  LOVE shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by VeggieJess on: July 16, 2008 09:56:50 AM
I made this shirt for my DH to wear to the Ringo Starr concert we went to on Monday night!  I LOVE it! lol He thinks it's really great, too!

sorry for the terrible pics, it's a little overcast here! It's not crooked like it looks, it's just hanging oddly.

what do you think?

oh, it's modeled to look like this shirt...

28  Little Zac Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by VeggieJess on: July 16, 2008 09:44:02 AM
For one of my gifts to my DH for our anniversary last month I made him a doll of himself!  He thinks it's pretty funny, and I think it looks like him!  I just made up my own pattern.
His talents (unlike my DH) include riverdancing, and (like my DH) sitting and laying down!  Wink lol

Let me know what you think!

29  Batman Doll... I mean Action Figure (now with bat-arang) in CHALLENGE 29 ENTRIES by VeggieJess on: July 05, 2008 07:45:02 PM
I just made this today.  Who doesn't feel Batman was their childhood hero? 

He has a detachable cape!  I feel he needs accessories, though. 


Do you think he needs eyes? Hubby thinks so, but I think it made him look odd...  He looks more mysterious this way, maybe...

Thanks for looking!

Here's his bat-arang! It attaches with velcro. 

I also scalloped his cape which I forgot to do at first!

30  Pirates (Liars) Dice Game in Completed Projects by VeggieJess on: July 02, 2008 08:16:52 AM
So about a year or so ago I made this game for one of my BILs  I made 2, and don't remember if this is the first or the second I made...  It was SO MUCH FUN!  Took a couple of evenings, most of the time was spent making the dice.

What do you think?

If anyone wants a tut, I can probably whip one up!

EDIT- Okay, so here's the tut!

The first thing to do is gather your supplies...

  4    enamel camping cups (you could use some other kind of cup as well)
  2    bamboo placemats (or other fabric or something to cover the outside of the cups)
  20  wooden cubes (or dice)
  photo storage box
  corrugated cardboard
  foam or felt to line the bottom of cup
  paint and permanent marker
  hot glue gun
  matches or a lighter

To make the cups...

(use this kind of cup)
  Take your camping cups, and using the pliers, CAREFULLY take off the handles using the pliers.  Be careful because sometimes the enamel chips off, and it might get all over, including in your eyes...
  Then measure the height of your cup under the lip and measure around it.  This is the size you will want to cut the placemat.  Cut the placemat and hot glue it to the cup. 
  Then comes the best part!  Take your matches or lighter, and burn the placemat in random spots to make it look nice and piratey!  You can rub some paint on it and even put on some barnacles or seaweed or whatever! 
  Cut the felt or foam to fit into the bottom of the cup.  This is important unless you want to be VERY annoyed, the shaking of dice get really loud! Then hot glue it into the cup.

To make the dice...
  Either buy a squared dowel and cut it into cubes or buy cubes already cut.  They don't have to be exactly square, if pirates made them, they probably wouldn't be!  Sand them.  Then, take your permanent marker or paint and put the numbers on the dice, but make sure you put a skull where the one would be!  Skulls are wild!  You could even take a dremel and drill out the dots for the numbers before painting them!  Stain the dice to make them look gross! 

For the box...
  Cut a piece of cardboard to fit in the middle of the box folded into thirds, based on the size of your cups and box.  You don't want the cups to roll around!  Then paint a treasure map on the cardboard!  Arrrr... Don't forget, X marks the spot!  Paint a spiffy skull on the box, or make it look like a treasure chest, and you're good to go!

  Look up the game instructions online, and print them off, or if you know someone who owns the Pirates of the Caribbean game, ask them to copy their instructions for you!  I own the original game, so I printed them off, and rolled them up like a map and tied it with some twine!

I believe that is everything, it was over a year ago that I made them, so if something doesn't make sense, feel free to ask! 

Good luck!
