1  sit sack in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by veri on: January 01, 2011 07:05:45 AM
I made this sit sack for my nephew's bd. Here it's modeled by my younger dd (my favourite "male" took pics with the kids while I was busy making the cake so it's not position as it should be (it has the back part as well but they kind of squished it Wink)

 It's made from a dark blue very sturdy canvas, filled with EVERYTHING I had on hand (I ran out of Styrofoam filling, used the cut foam, fabric scraps, drier's lint,...)

The green bushes are made from fleece and have Velcro sewn on it (the dark blue lines) so that the kids will be able to attack different animals I'll make from felt to it and reposition them as they will please. I'll put pics if we visit them and photo it in action:

I hope you like it! All comments very wellcome!

2  New house card in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by veri on: November 28, 2010 12:16:48 PM
My BIL and his family have built a new house (and as always it wasn't without frustration) so I wanted to congratulate them properly and made them this card:

It's simple but I hope it has delivered the message.

3  knitted teddy in Knitting: Completed Projects by veri on: November 28, 2010 11:49:23 AM
I admit: I never was a yarn person - my mom didn't' knit and my grandma taught me how to do it when I was 4yo. Unfortunately soon after that she got cancer, went to hospital and after that she died. So that one visit there at her place was my only knitting experience.

(teddy's riding a sock crocodile)

I haven't knitted until 3 years ago when I finally made my "alpha male" a scarf in bumblebee pattern (striped - black and yellow that is Grin) as he is into bumblebees. I knitted that scarf for 1 year as I never got to it.

Than we got our first baby and I knitted her a diaper cover from OM pattern and than when the little one was born I made another diapercover for her. And that was it. But than one lazy afternoon when we were at my dad's (I don't have any crafting supplies there) I found a ball of yarn that I forgot about and next time I took a book with instructions for this teddy:

Since than my older kid was bugging be every single day for more than 2 weeks to make her another "wool toy" - she adores this teddy! So this weekend we were at grandpa's again and I knitted there again - this time 3 sheep - I'll put them up once I photo them.

It's my first knitted project with increasing and decreasing, first knitted toy or shaped knitted thing! What do you think about it? I know the stuffing shows through but I had to work with what I had (this is acrylic yarn and it was very smooth and thin)... Comments and critiques very welcome!

4  my first crocheted anything - fingerless gloves in Crochet: Completed Projects by veri on: November 28, 2010 10:57:50 AM
This is my very very first crocheted project ever! I have never crocheted anything before! I learned some stitches while I was sick as a child (7yo) but I had only one tiny ball of yarn so I couldn't make anything - I just tried different stitches and than ripped them apart. I haven't crocheted a stitch from than on. Nobody has ever showed me how to crochet so pleas excuse the mistakes that you might notice or irregularity or anything that might bother you with my "flaw-full" first project. Nevertheless I'm quite proud that I made them without any frustration and while kids were up! Grin I needed about 4 hours for this pair so it's very quick even for "wet behind the ears" newbies.

So - this photo seems familiar to you? Well it's supposed to be familiar:) I made fingerless gloves from the pattern that sweet sinjah  so generously shared with us here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=364362.0

Here is a different view so I won't be a total copycat Wink:

They were a present for my SIL and she seemed to like them. I hope you do, too. Please let me know what you think as this is my first crocheting and I'm not all that confident about them... Thanks!

5  giraffe and camel in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by veri on: October 08, 2010 12:53:13 PM
I made this two animals from air drying clay and finished them with patina:

How do you like them? they are not very realistic but that wasn't my goal this time... I just went along my inspiration. They have wire armature and some tin foil inside to reduce the weight and to save some clay.

7  polymer clay pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by veri on: October 08, 2010 12:18:12 PM
This summer we went for our summer holidays for 1 month on a car-free island where I spend my summers since I was a baby. This year I had so much to pack that I forgot to take any Fimo with me and my beloved alpha male saw that and went to buy some polymer clay where we were boarding on ship. I was so happy as he is so thoughtful! So than I made some buttons and some jewelry with it. Among other things this pendant for a friend craftster's daughter and it happened to be her sign in horoscope. I hope she likes it although it wasn't a complicated project:

Nothing so impressive as other stuff here but I thought I'd share anyway.

8  Bunny costume in Costumes: Completed Projects by veri on: October 08, 2010 09:11:50 AM
Last Mardi Gras (yes, nearly a year ago - in February Grin - uh, I'm late with posting!) my older dd wanted to be a bunny - so I crafted a very simple bunny since I had no time - I dressed her in white, made ears and tail out of fur fabric and attached the ears to the headband:

How do you like her?

10  prince costume in Costumes: Completed Projects by veri on: October 08, 2010 08:56:48 AM
I made this costume as a bd present for my oldest nethew this winter but haven't posted it yet - now with Haloween fast approaching it's about time... We don't celebrate halloween so much overhere but we do have Mardigrass and his bd was before mardigrass this year and he loves everything about princes, castles, dragons and stuff - you know 3 year old boys Wink.

I made a crown, cape and a shield - it's lined and filled with very thick filc (double) so it's quite sturdy.  The dragons are appliqued onto the fabric. Onto the photos - modeled by my older dd:

in action:

better view of the shield:

back view:

And a small bonus: I made another crown for his brother (smaller - as he is younger) and needs to get something when his brother gets gifts: this crown is modeled by my younger dd:
