3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question on weaving in loose ends on: January 30, 2008 08:12:38 PM
I made the lavander bunny for my one year old at the end of decemeber and she has been sleeping with it at night ever since. I haven't washed it yet, but the ends are already starting to poke back through the material. I recently made my 7 year olf cousin a mermaid and i "weaved" the peices in the same as i did for the bunny but now im thinking that may not have been right. Any one care to explain how to weave the peices in properly or know of a website with instructions?

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Why?? Do you sew for your children? on: January 25, 2008 07:25:02 PM
I know the reason i want to sew for my daughter... It is becuase i want to be proud of what my daughter is wearing, and not have to worry about searching and searching through department stores for something appropriate for a small child. I really don't agree with what is popular right now, and would like my daughter to grow up with an appreciation for more modest, lady like clothes. That and for what ever reason, im a bit anti name brand. Im odd o_0 i know =p lol What are your reasons?
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Making paper out of junk mail on: January 20, 2008 01:58:22 AM
My daughter will very soon be at the age where she likes to draw =) Is it possible to make recycled paper out of junk mail, like credit card offers? Will it be lightly colored enough to color on?

I plan on letting her open junk mail while im working with paper too, kind of like, imitating momma time (most kids love this type of thing) any who, after its opened we will shred it. And i just thought that making the paper into other paper she can use in her "paper time" for lack of a better word xD would be one more great way to incorperate a simpler life style (in the way of not making paper buying one more stressful nescessity AND having to feel guilty about throwing out perfectly good paper AND small parts of info people could peice together if they truly desired.) into our lives.
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / school fairs... school spirit or not so much? on: January 13, 2008 11:39:20 PM
Is it a good idea to play towards the 'school spirit' or not? things like, Scarfs and hats in the school colors, Plushies of the cheerleaders or mascots, Crocheted mini plushies on key chains.... What do you think? Is it a good idea to target towards school goers (more like the parents of the school goers...) or better to go with other ideas?
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Crochet toys at a renaissance fair? on: January 13, 2008 09:23:09 PM
Do you think things like, Amigurumi mermaids, fairys, princesses, princes, knights, unicorns would do good? Im also thinking finger puppets of some of the stuff previously mentioned as well as things like crochet 'knights shield' backpacks, crochet crowns, and crochet swords.... WDYT? It wouldn't definatly be geared towards the younger renaissance fair goers... but do you think it would be worth it to try? I have never seen crochet, or many toys at our yearly local renaissance fair.
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Any one know a good how to video or picture tutorial for learning appliqué? on: January 07, 2008 04:23:07 PM
I want to do a swap in the future and have designed my quilt block. In order to do the block i will need to know how to appliqué... all i have ever done is peicing =p I might be able to figure out a way to do the block with peicing, but i think it would look cleaner appliquéd =p
10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / The Lavander Bunny... A newbies tale on: January 06, 2008 11:08:19 PM
Yay =D So, my second project, and my first attempt at following a pattern... as you will see i wasn't 'entirely' successful =p I miss counted and when i was doing the head i was actually doing it wrong =p ooops... oh well, i love it, and my 1 year old will love it on easter Wink Here is the original pattern created by rheatheylia http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3

The arms are crooked and so are the ears xD And one foot is bigger then the other and the head is too big xD I am AMAZING =p Now on to the pictures =p The stuffing really shows up in the pictures but you can't see it in real life  Huh weird...
