11  Dimensional Magic and Microbead ring in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by elowezil on: October 17, 2011 11:10:32 PM

Oval silver ring blank filled with Dimensional Magic and turquoise Microbeads (also known as Beedz), 4 layers, one at a time with drying for a few hours after each layer, pouring Dimensional Magic and a few microbeads into it each time until it was up to the rim.  It's for my daughter who loves this color.  I told her was thinking of putting a small triangle of silver foil or paper sticking out of the top to look like a shark's fin, as it looks like a lagoon or a swimming pool!  LOL   She was very glad I didn't do that and spoil the whole thing, although I thought it was quite a fun idea!  Resin can be used in place of the Dimensional Magic but I didn't have any on hand.

12  Fabric book for my grandson's first birthday in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by elowezil on: October 10, 2011 11:35:53 PM
Our son and his family recently moved from New Zealand (where we live) to Australia, and of course we really miss them.  Our grandson will be a year old in a few weeks so I made him this cloth book of our little "farm", where we live, so he can learn to recognize the different animals and critters we have here, and also Grandpa and Grandma!   We hope to visit them in January.  The book is made from fleece with fabric and felt scraps, roughly appliqued, and held together by 3 journal/filing rings (those rings with hinges - not sure what they're called).  They make the book easier for little hands to turn the pages.

13  More toddler outfits in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by elowezil on: August 19, 2011 12:24:02 AM
I'm enjoying sewing for my 9 month old grandson and other babies we know of a similar age.  I love how easy it is to dress up a plain inexpensive onesie with appliques, don't you?  (This is the rear view of the pants which have contrasting fabric in the butt panel.  The onesie has the applique on the front though.)

I posted a pic of these owl pants last week, but have now made a onesie to match.  (Of course the owl is on the behind of the pants and on the front of the onesie.  I just photographed them together here.)

And these are another pair of monster pants for a little boy, friend of my DD's.  I'm still waiting for the Mom to get back to me with his waist measurements so that I can put the elastic in the waistband.

14  Big Butt Owl toddler pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by elowezil on: August 13, 2011 10:30:48 PM
From the Made By Rae pattern, Big Butt Baby Pants.  After having fun making the monster butt ones last week, this is my next creation!  My grandson looked so cute in his monster pants.  (If you'd like to see him in them, check my blog - link below.)

15  Monster baby pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by elowezil on: August 02, 2011 04:59:45 PM
These are for my grandson who is 9 months old and just starting to crawl, so his little butt will look so cute when he's on his hands and knees!  LOL

16  2 x taggy blankets in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by elowezil on: August 01, 2011 03:20:36 PM
I made these 2 taggy blankets recently.  They're big enough to use in a carseat, buggy or stroller.  The giraffe looks more like a dinosaur than a giraffe, but I hope the baby won't notice!  LOL

18  Guest bedroom/birdroom re-do in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by elowezil on: July 27, 2011 06:28:07 PM

From blah to not-so-blah-anymore! Less than $50 for all the decor additions - thrift shop frames and embroidery hoops, old wallpaper books, free online downloads, fabric scraps, scrapbook paper, cheap burlap scraps, old buttons, and odd craft stash bits. If you would like to see more details and close-ups, please visit my blog (link below). Thanks for looking!

19  Tshirt necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by elowezil on: May 11, 2011 10:27:23 PM
A fun way to use old grungy stained or holey Tshirts.  The only problem is you need beads and charms with big holes for the thick cord the Tshirt makes, but alternatively you could sew the beads and/or charms on afterwards I guess.

20  Baby hoodie in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by elowezil on: April 04, 2011 01:20:43 AM
My first attempt at reversible/lined sewing!  Polar fleece and cotton knit hoodie for my grandson.  It's a Burda pattern and I made it in size 6 months but it looks HUGE.  Will have to try it on him at the weekend (he's 5 months but we're heading into winter here in New Zealand so it will be useful in a few months I'm sure).
