21  man holding heart in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by veri on: April 07, 2010 08:29:31 AM
I made this figure years ago for my boyfriend (whom I still love today and is now the daddy of our kids) so the colors are all faded out (I used what I had - airdrying clay colored with some cheap ink and varnished) but I thought I'd post it anyway since it was my first sculpture I think:

side view:

What do you think of my first but not the last?

22  polymer clay buttons: bears and more in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by veri on: April 07, 2010 08:12:49 AM
I like making pc buttons because I can custom design them to match the sheets/clothes... I made them from very old (terrible to condition Angry but holds really well - the pics are taken after some washings) Fimo classic:
bears for my girls and their blue sheets with bears:

Please ignore the thread that hang from the buttonholes:

and another set of 3 on the other sheet:

I'd love to hear what you think about them!

23  clover for luck in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by veri on: April 07, 2010 07:43:42 AM
I made this clover from polymer clay only for my friend and neighbour as a good luck charm to take with her when she had an interview for the new job.

I guess it worked because they offered her a job (but she didn't take it because her currant job is more suitable for the baby she now has).

24  Nursing / breastfeeding pads - reusable of course in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by veri on: April 07, 2010 07:00:06 AM
I didn't know where to put this (clothing for kids - but it's for mom?, clothing in general - but it's not exactly clothes... so I finally decided to put it here where I saw some hygiene pads so I thought it would probably be the best place) - please feel free to move it if I am wrong.

I made a pair of nursing pads for my friend who just got her babygirl:

They are made from soft brushed flannel on one side, some absorbent diaper-terry for the inside and a layer of waterproof fabric on the other side to avoid any leeking. Can be washed on high and are white so they don't show through nursing bra (they are usually white).

You can see the whole gift here:

25  diapers with hearts in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by veri on: April 07, 2010 06:47:33 AM
I made this diapers for my friend's new baby (she uses cloth for her older son already so I knew they will come handy). She warned me about the post in Belgium that it takes a really long time to receive the letters and packages so I made a bit bigger diapers - although they are still size small: 62-74 - so should fit the average baby.

They are made from Ikea kid's fabric using this free Ottobre Magasine tutorial:

Here they are modeled by my baby who is very very skinny so no commercial pattern fits her and this one is no exception as you can see - it looks horrible Roll Eyes:

Here is the whole package I sent her:

The felt worm is for the older brother and is posted here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342803.msg3981596#msg3981596
The nursing pads are for mom, naturally and you can see a close up here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=343694.msg3995667#msg3995667
The card with baby feet for the baby: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342794.msg3981524#msg3981524

And you can see the box, decorated with potato stamped baby carriage here:

I'd love to hear what you think about it because she still hasn't received it so I can't get any responce from her. Do you think she'll like it?

26  gift for the newborn in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by veri on: April 07, 2010 06:29:39 AM
I made this gift for my friend who just got a new babygirl but she has one boy already.

I carved the baby carriage out of potato and stamped some plain paper with it. Than I just wrapped an old box from some packageing in this paper and filed it with gifts (you can see the content on the last photo), glued it together and tied a ribbon for decoration and added security. Here is how it looked from the back side:

And the contents:

- a diaper for the newborn - you can see it in action here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=343692.msg3995654#msg3995654
- a felt worm for the big brother: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342803.msg3981596#msg3981596
- nursing pads for the mom: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=343694.msg3995667#msg3995667
- and a card for the baby: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342794.msg3981524#msg3981524

27  pc pendant with tattoo sticker in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by veri on: April 07, 2010 06:08:05 AM
Here is a pc pendant I made for my brother's girlfriend as a thank you for baby-sitting my kids from time to time (when I have a dentist or something like that,...):

I deliberately cracked the surface but I'm not sure if it was a good choice. Do you think I should just let it plain? Sorry for the bad picture but I was in a hurry...

28  snowman pin in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by veri on: April 07, 2010 06:05:03 AM
I dressed the pin in polymer clay and made this snowman for my girl to pin a family photo onto the cork board they have in kindergarden for kids to look at their families when they miss their parents.

You can find the whole decorated picture with the pin here:

29  glass jug for my dad in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by veri on: March 31, 2010 01:43:26 PM
My dad has lots of headackes and I think that's due to the lack of water (he doesn't drink much of anyting - but he drinks coffee and gree tea which are both diuretic) so I wanted to make him something to remember him to drink a bit more and here is what I did:

I'm not sure this deserves the place in this board but I really don't know where else to put it - it is glass but I only painted it (the jug itself is from ikea), I haven't blown it or fused it or use any of those nice fancy techniques I see here... So don't blame the jug for being what it is - a modest painted piece of glass - the intention was good... Embarrassed

Of course I forgot to bake it in my home oven and the paint went off when he tried to wash it so I have to do it again Angry - well it happens, I'll fix it Grin.

What do you think - will he drink more from this jug?

30  winter real fur coat (img obese) - *MODERATOR'S CHOICE* 3/31/10 in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by veri on: March 31, 2010 01:23:22 PM
I know everybody is in a spring mood already, and I can't wait for it as well Kiss but here the snow is predicted for tomorrow so I have all legal rights to post this now Grin.
This year's winter here was very very hard (cold and snowy) and my dds started kindergarten so they were sick all the time. Consequently I wanted to keep them warm when we were outside not to catch cold that way as well. I made a really bright orange 100% waterproof winter overall (lined with faux fur) for my dd last year so it fitted the my second baby this year just perfectly (they are 17 months apart but the little one is a bit taller). Ok, only one to go Wink. This is the (older) girl in her new coat and as you can see man just has to try his best for this little beauty (I know - mamma's eyes... Wink):

Some of you might remember this coat from the bag challenge where my dd posed with the bag in this coat:

I wanted to make her something really warm but not an overall because she's a big girl, doesn't need diapers and we had a lot of really warm trousers so i thought a coat would be best. I gave it a lot of thought because the sheep fur is really expensive and I first wanted to make an anorak from OM, but than I altered it in all possible ways (I split the front and added a zipper so I can easily undress her in the store and she doesn't get hot), I lengthen it and did some other adjustments (no side zippers because I designed the bottom part differently...) so it's kind of something else now... I also painted and stenciled it and here is what I came up with:

front side:

back side where you can see the compas stencil:

side view:

closeup of the hood:

upper part:

It is made of real sheep fur, treated only with vegetable stuff, no chemicals whatsoever. So it's really natural, soft and cuddly but very ugly on the leather side. But I wanted the fur side to be on the inside since that just makes the coat warmer and softer and cuddlier. So I painted the leatherside with acrylics and stenciled it with compas stencil I cut from foil. You can see a better picture of the stencil here:

And last but not least here are some action (real action!) photos:

In case you are interested in the orange overall you can find it here:
To tell you the truth this project was a real pain in the a**! Sewing this fur is something I really don't look forward to do again though I really like the final result and it really is warm! Much warmer than anything else... But it was flimsy, stressful, i used a pack of needles I think, and so on...
The painting was another issue since I had to do some experiments which paints would be appropriate for the job... The textile paints didn't work because they need to be heat treated and the heat made the leather hard - not good. So I used good quality acrylics and this worked very nice. No problem whatsoever.

But with all the drama, all room full of sheep hair that flew around I'd really appreciate any feedback! This is the one project where I really need to know what you think of it...
