301  Re: Grasshopper Hats! a.k.a. Knotty Hats ***NOW WITH TUTORIAL*** in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mrsflibble on: February 18, 2008 07:10:31 AM
those are adorable! my dd sooooo needs one lol!!! thinking I can recon one from one of my hubby's old T's....

BUT BUT BUT I don't own a serger, but would standard hemming and a bit of creative seam stitching work do you think? obviously using a ball end needle on jersey fabric...
like this?

as for adult size ones, wild things from wild ginger has a ski hat which is like the grasshopper hat only it only has one knotty bit.... it's a free download program from wild ginger. don't know if I'm allowed to link here so google it. I can highly recommend the program.

303  Skirt from...a skirt!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mrsflibble on: February 16, 2008 02:14:57 PM
well my normal pic server is down so stuff it I'll use the craftster one lol!

this is a skirt which I have recon from an ugly skirt, some curtain material and a butterfly necklace. I'm really proud of it and went out in it today.
pics were taken by my mr.

I am so pleased with this, but annoyed that I didnt take any before pics! basically, that skirt was unflatering and came to about mid calf length. the curtains I was planning to make into a jacket but I don't think i have the knack, the patience or enough of the curtains!!!

whole skirt cost me about 4.50 (a shade under US$9.00).

305  Slug Bag *pic host changed* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mrsflibble on: February 14, 2008 03:39:45 AM
I love making slugs.

My sister in law Jules wanted something home made for xmas again this year so I made her a knapsack...

here is it modelled by my hot husband.

and from behind...

and a front view.

it's done on a bigger but basically the same mental pattern I have for my toy slugs, only this time it has a lined bag part too. the base is made from pleather taken from an old handbag, and the zipper matches the pleather 'cos i basically ripped the liner out of the bag and inserted it into the slug! the strap was hard to find. i wanted to use a belt, ut my sis in law is a major veggie so it needed to have not been anywhere near an animal. unfortunately, even in the cheapest shops in my home town it's impossible to get anything other than leather so I opted for the sequin belt which is also stretchy so fits comfortably around jule's bust. she refused to be in any photos hence why the mr had to do it instead.

306  Slugs, I love 'em.*switched pic host* in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by mrsflibble on: February 14, 2008 03:29:18 AM
I started making a slug a while ago 'cos I was bored.
and it snowballed.

this was made for a friend on another forum for our secret santa; the rules were it had to be reused, it could cost no more than 5 for an item OR materials to make an item.

I made a toy slug and cauliflower.

this one is a squeaky surfer slug that I made for my l'il bro. it had a squeaker that I got from hobbycraft in their sale this xmas. appologies for terrible surfslug photo, was taken on my phone on the train.

307  a toddler bed from.... a bed. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mrsflibble on: February 14, 2008 03:23:43 AM
my mum was throwing a load of stuff out of her loft just as minime was getting to need a bed rathe than a cot. mum had a headboard and footboard, my hubby had the skills to re-form it into a bed which should fit her until she's about 5 or 6. originally, the size was a necessity as her room was teenytiny, but now she's got a bigger room due to a house move and it is still great as it means she's more room to play. I was incredibly proud of my mr when he made this.

in situ in her old room

I don't have a pic of her new room with everything in it!!!
I've also made her some cute bed covers and bought her a duvet from ikea which is just the right size for the bed... but again, no pics yet.

308  MUTTons in Knitting: Completed Projects by mrsflibble on: February 14, 2008 03:14:31 AM
I am a self confessed terrible knitter. I can't follow knitting patterns and before may last year I couldn't even purl.

yet I made these. I was incredibly determined to do it as they were for my sister in law who loves anything home made.

309  Smocking in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mrsflibble on: February 14, 2008 03:11:35 AM
This is a dress made to a pattern in an old children's clothing book that I found in a charity shop.
it's 2 rectangles, one twice as wide as the other. I used iron on transfer smocking dots on the back 'cos I'm no good at the whole measuring stuff thing. it fitted her really nicely as a short dress last summer (you can see the funky nappy cover pants too) and it still has enough give in it to be a top over some shorts this year.
I was incredibly proud of my smocking.

all hand sewn as I didn't have a sewing machine then. I couldn't get the little poophead to stand up for me, so here she is in full glory, lounging on her barbie chair.

310  The first birthday cake I've ever made in Dessert by mrsflibble on: February 13, 2008 04:43:18 AM
Last week it was my daughter's 2nd birthday, she is REALLY into diggers. she loves them and has a huge collection of toy ones already. So, I thought how hard can making a digger cake be?! Last year I bought her cake.

I started off by sitting on the sofa and instructing my husband on how to make a chocolate sponge-I have a bad back and it just so happenned to mess up last weekend.
10oz p.flour (all purpose for the yanks)
12oz sugar
12oz butter- marge will work but don't try super low fat marge or spreads cos they have too much water in
2oz cocoa powder NOT DRINKING CHOCOLATE!!!
6 eggs
1.5tsp baking powder -I used the p.flour and baking powder method as i had no SR flour left.

chuck it all in a bowl and set your electric whisk to high. wait till it's all mixed then pour into a prepared 10" sq pan. 160 centigrade until it's done.

the next day when it was all cool I cut it into bits and stacked them.

you can see my oven lighter there holding the bucket up!!

and here it is iced.

note the easter bunnies staging a protest at the destruction of Haribo Island...

I was so proud of it. tasted good too. I used standard butter icing and all natural colourings, even  the sweets.

here is Fluff picking off a headlight to munch on
