11  Re: Poppet Swap Rd 3 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by mrsmartin428 on: February 20, 2009 11:57:03 AM
Okay, here's Joplin wearing each of her individual outfits (as soon as my older daughter got home and saw her she begged me to make her one).  She thinks it's funny that Mom has a doll.

First, I wanted to show the neat inset in the pants she was wearing when I opened the box, I thought it was a nice detail:

Next, her cute hippie/gypsy outfit (this one is my favorite):

And then, the purple and brown skirts:

And lastly, her infinity dress, which is they really soft and silky fabric:

I received!  Be prepared to hit your wist button and drool!  Grin

ClonedBravo did an awesome job (now I'm really sweating my package).   Shocked

Everything wrapped up all pretty with a sweet note.

Then, the first one I opened.  A new wallet for me (which I am already using).

Inside the wallet were stashed some poppet-joints.

Some cool cherry fabric

A bunch of poppet outfits (infinity dress, peasant top, brown skirt, lavender skirt, cool hippie patchie skirt, and a teeny purse.

gold fabric for poppet-making with some sweet rub-on transfers

And then popped out Joplin (so-named because her hair reminds me of Janis)

She has some cool fairy wings that are attached with snaps

Showing off her very cute blue outfit

And she came baring gifts

I tried to get a close-up to show her glitter eyelashes, but my camera was not cooperating (but at least you can see her pretty blue eyes.

13  My first projects with my serger...peasant tops for my toddler in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mrsmartin428 on: February 19, 2009 08:45:59 AM
I have been wanting a serger for years, and my husband finally broke down and got me one for Valentine's Day (don't laugh too hard, I bought him a welder...ya, we're pretty romantic).

I made each of these tops using fat quarters I bought on sale at Joann's (took 4 fq's for each top), I didn't want to spend a ton of money on fabric since I knew I'd probably screw up my first couple projects.  I made all of these in one afternoon, using a mixture of Vegbee's tute and a Butterick pattern I bought. 

I think they turned out okay for a first try...we're planning on going to the beach on vacation this year and I thought they'd be nice play-wear for her.  They're not quite as wonky as they look in the pictures, I don't have them on the hanger straight and I had to take the pictures at an angle.

Of course, my sewing machine decided to crap-out while I was getting started making similar tops for my older daughter, so now I have to go hunt down my machine oil and spare needles (I really should maintain it a little better).

My partner received last week but is having computer issues so I'll post the pictures.  I sent 11, being a SAHM I tend to fly through the squares while the kids are at school.

Here are my beautiful squares from KRB.  I love, love, love them...I think my favorite is the one with the chocolate brown and the ombre yarn that has white in it.  I've already started sewing them together as I have quite a stack going on and her squares look perfect with the ones that I've done...can't wait for R9!

16  chihuahua puppies in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by mrsmartin428 on: January 06, 2009 07:05:47 AM
These are my first ami's....my best friend just got a micro min pin and it got me wanting a little dog, however I don't want all the training and responsibilities that go along with having a puppy, so I crocheted these little guys instead.  I think Taco needs a neckerchief and Tequila needs a pretty bow on her head.

17  Shades of Blue Newsboy in Crochet: Completed Projects by mrsmartin428 on: October 19, 2008 01:26:48 PM
Everything looks better when it's on such a pretty little girl...but then, I think I might be slightly biased.   Grin

Thank you for the compliments on Katie, I think she's gorgeous but I might be a little biased.   Grin

Here's a couple more pictures that show my older daughter wearing her hat as well...it also shows the colors a lot better than my original photo at the beginning of the thread.

19  Cotton Babydoll Top in Crochet: Completed Projects by mrsmartin428 on: September 04, 2008 04:47:42 PM
Another project for my little one...a babydoll style top for her to wear to her first birthday party (hopefully she won't outgrow it).  It's about a size 18 months and was really easy to make.  I want to embellish the front with a flower or something, but I'm waiting to get a turtleneck for her to wear underneath before I pick a color for that (her birthday is a couple days before Halloween so it will be too cold for her to wear it singly).  It's made with Lily cotton yarn in cream.

It's modified from the babydoll sweater for leggings pattern at christinascrochethaven.com.

20  Rainbow Hat for my baby in Crochet: Completed Projects by mrsmartin428 on: September 04, 2008 04:03:24 PM
I couldn't find a hat that I liked for my daughter for the Fall/Winter, so after getting inspired by some beautiful hats I found on Etsy I hunted down a pattern that I liked and made this for her...I also made a matching one for her older sister.  Sorry for the pic quality and sour face, it was bedtime.

It's made with Lily Sugar and Cream cotton yarn with stripes in red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, medium blue, and lavendar.
