1  Re: Name Letters/Hairbow holder in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by threegirlsandaboy on: July 16, 2010 06:37:53 AM
Very cute!  I love the little butterflies. I think it's a great idea for all ages!!  

I just made some of those for my nephew, but decoupaged on scrapbook papers instead of hand-painting.  Gotta love those wooden letters!   Smiley

2  "City Backpack" from Heart of Mary's tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by threegirlsandaboy on: July 15, 2010 07:20:49 AM
I'd like to say a great big THANK YOU to HeartofMary for a great tutorial!  I love this: http://pinoyinoz.blogspot.com/2008/07/tutorial-city-backpack.html
It wasn't actually very hard.  It took longer to cut everything out and get it all interfaced than it did to put it together.  It's a great small backpack for kiddos or quick trips.  This one is made from medium-weight denim, cotton, and "craft fuse" interfacing on both layers.  

Back and straps. I had to use d-rings instead of real slide thingies for the straps because that's all I had at the time.  

Under the flap:

3  Stuff for the new nephew- taggie ball, wall letters, burp cloths, in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by threegirlsandaboy on: July 14, 2010 06:22:43 PM
Well, my nephew was born one month ago, and I finally got the package for him mailed today.   Tongue  In my defense, he was born 3 weeks early, but I suppose that still puts me behind.  Oops!   Smiley  Anyway, I thought he probably needed some hand-crafted goodies from his good ole' Auntie, so here goes.

4  Lots o' lightbulb and spoon ornaments-- pic heavy! in Winter Holidays by threegirlsandaboy on: November 30, 2009 06:47:45 AM
I've never posted over here before, so, "Howdy!"  Here are a bunch of lightbulb ornaments I painted for the year.  I hate that these types of bulb won't be sold after 2012.  Maybe there will be a "black market" for illegal lightbulbs.   Cheesy
Here they are: 

Grinch and Cindy Lou Who:

Cat in the Hat



Santa/Mrs. :

Penguins and another version of Santa and snowman:

Here are a few spoons I painted:

I was having trouble seeing the details, so I hope you don't mind that I'm posting a bigger pic of your purse.  I love it!  I agree that the hubby is WRONG!!   Grin

6  50's dress for a niece, Vikingmom style in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by threegirlsandaboy on: July 31, 2009 05:39:16 AM
I'm so thrilled with this!  I was totally inspired by Vikingmom's post which I just bumped (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=312186.0).  I made this for my niece whose mom is really into 50's/rockabilly stuff.  I just hope it fits!  This was made in a size 3 (I hope), but it is shown on my size 5 kiddo-- that's why it's a little short and tight.

I don't know how to shirr, so I used elastic in the back and super long ties. (Maybe too long?? Huh)

I also added a little netting to an underskirt to help give it a little flair.  I will probably make it longer next time...  

The dots are from Wal-Mart and I had to make the bias tape because I'm cheap.  Next time I'll save myself a couple of hours.   Roll Eyes
Do you think she'll like it?   Smiley

7  Little one's car playmat roll thingy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by threegirlsandaboy on: January 17, 2009 04:35:01 PM
I just made this for a nephew's birthday.  Isn't this the greatest fabric?  It's Michael Miller's "Merryville."  Anyway, after months of searching for the perfect playmat, I saw this blog a couple of weeks ago(http://jcaroline.typepad.com/jcaroline/2008/07/merryville-play.html).  I hurried to  order the fabric on Ebay and made this.  It's just backed with denim and there's a little topstitching to keep things in place if it's washed.   I only used a fat quarter-sized piece of the fabric, so I still have 3 more panels left out of the yard I bought.  The mat ended up roughly 17X21". 

I added an attached zippered pouch for the cars:

Here it is all rolled up:

My son thought this was for him, so he's been asking where it is all day.  I guess I'd better go get started on his.   Smiley

8  Towel wraps for the nieces in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by threegirlsandaboy on: December 17, 2008 08:17:32 AM
Here are a couple of towel/head wrap sets I made for 2 of my nieces.  These are for 7 year olds, so they required cutting some towels down to size.  My house is full of towel fuzzies, but I think the results were worth it.   Smiley  Let's hope they like them:

Here's the head wrap in action:

9  Re: Need help!! How to dispaly bags for craft show!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by threegirlsandaboy on: October 07, 2008 09:37:51 AM
I did a couple of craft shows a few years ago and used both tables and a coat tree type of thing to display my bags.  My father made me a large coat tree but with the dowels sticking out all the way down the center pole.  Does that make any sense?  I covered my tables with simple black flat sheets from Wal-Mart ($4 apiece) and put some different sized boxes beneath the sheets in places.  That way I had some purses at table height and others a different heights here and there.  There's also the option of putting up a pegboard behind your table and hanging your purses from there on hooks.   
Here's a picture of my purse tree:

You can't really see the details, but I'm sure you can imagine the dowels sticking out every few inches down the length.  You could certainly make a smaller one for your table or stick a tall one like this out in front of your table. 

Here's another one of the entire purse set-up.  I didn't have background decorations like a lot of people who do the craft show thing a lot did, but I still sold very well.  I think the black really showed off the colors of the purses.

10  Another nod to Vegbee's Fair Weather Coat pattern **WITH BUTTONS--FINALLY!!** in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by threegirlsandaboy on: September 20, 2008 01:41:33 PM
Here's my daughter's coat from Vegbee's new pattern.  I'm so excited!  I received my pattern on Thursday afternoon and made this on Friday.  I couldn't wait!!  As you can see, I haven't added the buttons yet.  I haven't decided whether I want to do covered buttons or what color to go with if I don't.  Any suggestions?  I made this out of twill for the shell and quilting cotton from Hancock's for the lining.  I'm not sure if the color is very true to life, but it's a dark plum color with a colorful candy "filling".   Wink I'm not sure the colors really go together, but oh well...  it's done and she's thrilled!  There have been so many cute kid coats on here lately, and I couldn't wait to jump on the bandwagon.  I have two older daughters who want coats too now.  I think I might try to increase the pattern size since it only fits up to a size 4.  I don't know whether I'm actually capable of such a thing, but I might have to try...  Does anyone have any tips on that?? 

Here's a poor shot of the covered buttons I FINALLY finished.  My camera is having a hard time getting a shot of the fabric on the buttons, but it's individual "candies" from the lining.  I'll try to get a better picture in the sunlight tomorrow. 

Well, I tried last night and again this morning and I just can't get a good shot of the buttons up close.  Poo!!
