11  Hand Warmer in Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 28, 2012 02:52:36 AM
Don't really know where to put this so please excuse me if I've made a mistake.
I have been wanting to make this little bunny for years and finally found the right fabric I wanted. I got the pattern off the internet but they have since removed the pattern. Luckily, I downloaded the pattern years ago and went at it recently.

I just think it's so cute that I had to make one.
With the little bag filled with Flax seeds.

Thanks for looking.

12  Cow Boy Bed in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 28, 2012 02:04:36 AM
My GS recently received a little "boy" doll. So he asked me to sew some clothes for him. (Forgot to take pics of that) But then I found a doll bed that I'd had for a while and decided to surprise him with it. I started off with a bent up bed. straightened it out as best as I could, added some wire between the bed poles (Mainly so he couldn't put his foot through if\when he stood on it).


Then I took some batting I had in my stash and went to work:

Hot glued some stash "cow" fabric on the "mattress". (The kid loves cows)

Made a blanket and a pillow and.....

Thanks for lookin' ya'll!!

13  Angry Birds to the rescue! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 28, 2012 01:16:03 AM
 A few weeks back my eldest asked me to house\cat sit while he and his wife were out of the country. Well, as luck would have it, I took no crafts cause I hadn't planned to be in the house that long. I was hoping to be walking the city, sitting at the beach for a week. Well, for reasons out of my control, I had to stay indoors mostly....and was going stir crazy. Soooo on my trip to the store for milk and such I saw a school supply store across the street....10 minutes later I had my stash! Got back to the apartment and improvised anything. So I made pom pom Angry Birds (Simply cause the kids in my family are still in love with them).  This is what came out of such a simple (but therapeutic) craft.
Angry Bird Gang!

And being the mean mommy I am, I decided to get a little "back" by leaving some for them to find. First obvious place was on the TV

Oh, and some on the bookshelf!!! This is getting fun.

And the fruit of an hours work.

Next time I won't be caught without at least something to craft with!!! Grin
Supply list:
bag of multi color pom poms
google eyes
package of different color felt
a pair of nail scissors (great for those eye brows)

15  Crafting my Daughters' Wedding in Weddings and Bridal Showers by Jinjeet Phoenix on: May 30, 2012 02:00:22 AM
When my daughter got married she didn't want any DIY because of time, effort, the scale of the wedding (over 350 guests) and so forth. Of course, I was dying to do just anything for my little girls wedding...so almost at the last minute things started "popping" up like....
She decided on having the nieces being flower girls which means flower baskets.
I ran to town and bought 3 baskets 2 days before the wedding(she couldn't find nor had the time.lol)  Then decorated them. I sent poor hubby to hand pick the flowers....white and purple ( her wedding colors) in the early hours of the morning.
Here is what I came up with.

Everything came from my stash! Lucky!

I also got to make a ring bearer pillow. Here is what I came up with:
I looked for something of my Mothers and found her silk dressing gown. Perfect.

Measure twice, cut once;

This is what I made from it:

But noooooo. Little darlin' forgot to tell me that there is an exchange of rings, so....

So now she could pick from two.

We also made a DIY Chuppah sending squares to family members to personalize. (MIL's idea) Cool idea and a lot of work but what to do with it after? Who want's a quilt with glitter on it? I loved the idea though!!!
Hope you enjoyed seeing a little of my daughters wedding. Thank you for looking. (and reading this far down.)

16  Re: Bananas Foster Truffles in Dessert by Jinjeet Phoenix on: May 14, 2012 09:34:49 AM
I finally tried this and it came out great. Incredibly great in fact. Sadly, I only got pictures of the truffles in the molds. I made them for a gathering but they were gone in under two minutes of me putting them on the table. So I didn't even have time to put them down and turn on my camera.  I guess that qualifies as a very good recipe! Thank you again for sharing.

I just found the only picture that I got of these great truffles! Again, thanks!

17  New Scissor Carousel (dust) Cover and how I did it! in Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: January 14, 2012 05:12:39 AM
I have a small "built-on" craft room that has very thin walls that allows the dust to continually settle down on everything in there. Therefore, it's time I made some changes. I decided to make a dust cover for my scissor carousel.

And this is how I made it:
Trace circle from the base of the carousel.

Add about a centimeter on all sides. (Use new pattern weights  Roll Eyes)

Not shown:
Cut out circle and place over carousel to make sure it fits. Cut out a long piece of whatever you're using Height x circumference. Add on a bit to the length. Sew circle to length of fabric then sew the end. I used a 5 thread overlock. Done. Hard part over.
Place sewn cover on carousel to check that it fits.

Now take thin wire. I have no idea how thick it is. I just took it from my stash.

Put the wire inside of cover to make a ring. Overlap a bit for stability.

Check again!!!

 Now place cover over carousel to see if it works out and everything is in place.

Everything look ok? Wire? Stitches? Length? Make double sure! (Measure twice cut once!)

Now take some really thin wire (more stash stuff) and wrap thicker wire to add to stability.

Insert round ring into top of cover and push in til it's straight all around. Make sure it is in tight.

As you can see, the wire wasn't in snuggly enough so I worked on it more til I was satisfied.

You want to check the top and sides.

Now go find a place for it. (But before that I'll give it another cleaning in the hopes that I won't need to wash it down every few weeks.)
That's my new dust cover. It took me less than an hour including rummaging and figuring out measurements. Hope this helps someone. And I do believe that this is actually my first tutorial. Please be gentle.

C &C Always welcome. Thank you for reading this.

18  Totally inspired Pattern Weights in Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: January 10, 2012 12:19:54 AM
This project was totally inspired by TheMistressT and her pattern weights found here...
I cut most of my patterns from thick clear plastic from a large roll of plastic so the pieces have a tendency  to curl.  So when I saw TheMistressT's pattern weights I knew this is what I need to keep my patterns in place and to keep them straight. Of course I had to complicate things. I wanted a pyramid shaped weight. On to the pics:

I used an old cookie tin to hold them in (Thanks TMT) and since I don't have any nice paper or stickers I'll just use the nice tin.

Here they all are with the proto type I made.
And a fancy picture just cause I like the weights so much.

Again, thank you TMT. Now to start using them.
Hope you like.

19  Re: Chuppah Help in Weddings and Bridal Showers by Jinjeet Phoenix on: November 25, 2011 10:33:28 AM
I wanted to share the Chuppa we made for one of my kids. It is welded (hope that's spelt right) we used metal pipes and just stuck them into the ground. The top part is a square with little pieces of metal that fits into the four poles (that go into the ground) We then took meters of fabric obtained from a fabric factory and just wrapped the poles and the top. Sounds difficult but was very easy.  After the wedding we simply left the Chuppa for anyone that wanted to use it and it's been used many a time since then. Here's what we did:

Hope this helps. At my DD wedding the Chuppa was a little different and I sewed the middle part of the Chuppa. We handed out squares of fabric to family members and they "crafted" the square and I sewed them all together to form the "roof" of the Chuppa...just another option.

20  Re: Mmmmm Banana Bars in Dessert by Jinjeet Phoenix on: December 09, 2010 07:41:57 AM
Thank you so much for the recipe. I made it this morning and it tastes great.
It came out kind of thin with my jelly roll pan (Maybe too big a pan) The milk didn't curdle with the vinegar. I used three bananas cause mine were so small. The first bite was an explosion of banana taste. It's great. I didn't make any frosting. It is so sweet that it doesn't need any. Thanks for sharing. I'll be making this again. (Probaby tomorrow.lol kids are coming.)
