91  sheets and foam side protection for baby bed - new action shot added in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by veri on: March 30, 2008 01:42:29 PM
OK, so we finally moved our beloved baby into her own room so we can have ours for ourself (during the first part of the night at least - but that's the most important, right? Wink) so I made her baby blanket (I'll put that in quilting section) and sheets for it and for the pillow (though she doesn't use it yet - but I figured it out she sure will someday and I better make everything now otherwise I'll end up using the fabric for something else or place it somewhere I'll never find it and it will be gone...). So here it is:

I also made foam side protection myself since I like it to be of a bit different measurements than it's sold - I like it to be all around the bed since the bed is in the corner of the room and the block is old and I wanted some additional protection from cold air that comes through the wall when it's windy). and of course because she is quite squirly she easily find herself on the other side of the bed - so protection should be all around. I also wanted it to be lower and thicker - why lower you can see - cause it fits just right like that and thicker for bigger protection. I also wanted it to be possible to put just the front piece away so she can be in her bed and watch us if we are cleaning the floor for instance. But I still wanted it to be on most of the time so the light from another room or from the computer doesn't shine into her bed. - I'll post the picture with front piece flipped  up tomorrow since now she is sleeping:)

side protection lifted up:

and an action shot:

(we moved the bed bottom down since than but this picture shows everything better)

and a new action shot added - they were just so cute I couldn't help myself:

92  tea in love in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by veri on: March 30, 2008 08:15:09 AM
Ok, I am not sure if this is the right place - if not feel free to move it or tell me to do so.

Here is a small Valentine's present I made for my boyfriend (I don't know if I am still allowed to call him so since we have a child together Grin - but partner sounds so business-like... so I stick to that since we are not the marring kind Wink)
I found the idea here:
and expand it a bit to make the box with a message written on the top inside (why I love him) and with different colors of hearts for different types of tea. On one side of the heart it say what kind of tea it is and on the other is a short love message in different languages, some drawings of lips and so on (some are a bit nougty Wink)

so here it is: the closed box:


and tea bags with it's tags:

I think he liked it since he took it to work Grin

Made of different colored cardboard, glue and using heart shaped punches. nothing fancy but it's the idea that matters, right? Wink

PS: the real present was that I took the baby away so he could have a really good long sleep Grin

93  easter decoration in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by veri on: March 30, 2008 07:46:43 AM
You know what they say: "better late than never!" so here it is: my humble easter decoration:

a close-up:

There are no white eggs in my country and we really don't like hard boiled eggs  Tongue so I had to think of an alternative Huh - I bleached eggs with vinegar (cold vinegar and water solution) so they were not cooked. The eggs became a cake later on - cake we like Wink

There were also baskets with some homemade presents for each family member but we took them apart before I could take the picture Cheesy Nothing fancy since my little one was ill so I hardy had the time to make the presents: a chicken toy for her and boxers for her daddy:) - pictures coming.

94  baby gloves in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by veri on: March 30, 2008 07:31:57 AM
The spring is here but so was snow... Sooo - my little one needed some gloves:

No pattern, no tut, no nothing except her little hand to look at for the size Cheesy. Made from fleece with some jersey for the ribbing.

PS: this are my first posts so I am a bit nervous and therefore apologize for any spelling mistakes (English is not my native language) or not working photos or any other problems you might have with a new-by like me... Shocked

95  first baby leg-warmers in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by veri on: March 30, 2008 07:25:39 AM
Found this tut here:
and thought "hey, that would make diaper changing even easier!" Well it just so came that I found a link to some diaper-free-baby site and gave it a try and my little one now no longer uses diapers during the day. So I thought they will be practical for her not being cold while sitting on a potty but it just so came that she got used to potty really quick and doesn't sit on it for long time, she makes what she has to make very quickly - but the leg warmers still come in handy: she is extremely vivid and her pans are ALWAYS (and I mean always) above her knees - no matter how long they initially are... So leg warmers do the job after all Grin

Made from my old socks - I have very small feet so the shorter ones are too short for her hole leg but work well with pants - come just above her knee.

96  jeans chicken in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by veri on: March 30, 2008 07:11:10 AM
I found this great tut here on craftster:
and made some from old jeans scraps and a bit of leather and felt for easter for my baby and her daddy - you know - we are all kids Wink so here it is:
side view:

front view:

I liked making them a lot! I know the original is much nicer but I only had jeans scraps on hand and didn't want to wake the whole family by searching for nice scraps Grin The small one is really small - app. 1 in or so...

Thought of making more of them next easter - this easter the baby was sick - no time to sew Sad
