1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Dress for my sister's wedding on: June 21, 2008 08:26:54 PM
I made this dress out of a $3.50 sheet I found at Goodwill and some .50 lace I found at a thrift store.  I used llamby's excellent tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77268.0 and changed the straps, etc so I could wear a real bra. I'm pretty proud of it.

Unfortunately, I did not get a great picture of the dress.  I finished it shortly before I had to leave and with everything going on, I couldn't get anyone to take a good picture of it.  I hope you can tell what it looks like.

I'll try to get better pictures after I wash it.  My 18 month old slimed it at dinner!

On a side note, if you are going to buy a body shaper, the ones at Walmart, with the hook and eye fasteners in the crotch are not a good purchase.  It takes a gymnast to get them open to go to the bathroom and closing them again is horrible.  My mother agrees, she has one, also and we both had some interesting times Smiley.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Olive green and camo baby blanket on: June 06, 2008 02:32:27 PM
I made this baby blanket out of leftover olive green yarn (I have no idea what brand it is, but it's super soft) and some bernat camouflage.  I had just enough of the olive green to make a 25 x 32 inch blanket which I know is a little small, but that's all I had Smiley.  I crocheted it using a simple (sc, dc, dc) in each sc stitch and then bordered it in dc and sc.

Well, enough talk here's the photo

Thanks for looking.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Some slouch bags that I made on: June 04, 2008 06:53:40 PM
I fell in love with Steph Blue's Reversible bag at https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=241184.0.  I checked out her tutorial then proceeded to set it aside and made some of my own.  Thanks Steph for the idea

Mine are not meant to be reversible and I added an extra pocket, and did the strap differently.  But I love how they turned out and I constantly use mine as a diaper bag.  It's just perfect because it goes across my chest, and  it doesn't fall off when I'm bending down, picking up the boy, or just generally moving around.  It also fits all the "junk" inside of it, including bottles.

Hope you like them.

First try, using most of Steph's tute:

The one I use daily, I went away from the tute here:

And more, just because I had the fabric:

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sock Monkey Love on: February 29, 2008 03:18:37 PM
Ok, you guys now have me addicted to making toys.  I have always wanted a sock monkey, but never tried making one (laziness more than anything), but now I can't get enough of them.  Here's my first two:

The brown one has extra long limbs and tail because I used one of the "over the knees" socks.  I think I love him the best.  You really have to look close at the black one to see that she has two different eyes.  I didn't have two flower buttons, but I really thought she would look cute with one flower button, anyway.

Well, I'm off to go thrift store shopping for new socks.  My family is being stubborn and won't give theirs up Smiley.

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / New poppet for my granddaughter on: February 24, 2008 05:37:14 PM
I made a new poppet for my granddaughter. She loves colors so I made her a purple and multicolor dress.  The actual poppet is the best doll I made yet, but my clothes are horrible.  I emailed crafteworman for her lovely clothes pattern.

Well, without further ado:

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Meet Rowan the Elf on: February 13, 2008 07:03:40 PM
I didn't have the correct fabric for another poppet, so I decided to make a different doll with the stuff I learned from making my first poppet.  I also wanted to try my hand at soft sculpture.  So, for valentine's day, I made my son Rowan, the elf.

Here's the front:

Here's the back with the quiver:

In the pics, you can't see the earring and the close ups of his face.  My battery died before I could get the pictures.

I am working on elven boots, a bow and arrows.

Thanks for looking Smiley.

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Crocheted TMNT and alien on: February 10, 2008 04:34:04 PM
I made these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from
atsuko's post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=209461.0.  The alien is my own design.  It has pipe cleaners in the antenna to make them poseable.  

Here's the pic:  

I couldn't get separate pics because the baby wanted them (hence the hand in the picture).

Thanks for looking.
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first poppet and first post on: February 10, 2008 04:27:42 PM
Here is the first poppet I made:

Here's the undressed front and back.



My family was concerned that the poppet had no mouth so I had to add one. Smiley

It is made of felt because I was afraid of the whole doll making process and didn't want to invest a bunch of money in something I couldn't do.  Now I'm hooked and can't wait to make more dolls ...
