11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 1st sewing project, toddler witch, simplicity 2786, img heavy on: October 16, 2008 12:17:24 PM
This is my first project using a pattern. I have a dress i want to make for me, but i figured i would start small, as in 2 year old small. I found this and figured it would be perfect. I decided not to make the hat because we are not going trick or treating with it, rather using it for ritual- i'm practicing Wicca and Samhain is an important holiday for us. Anyhow, i thought i did pretty well for my very first try at using a pattern. I just need to change the back fastening, i bought the wrong type of velcro, i'm thinking of doing either snaps or a zipper.

12  COOKING / Dessert / Elmo Cake on: August 11, 2008 06:47:03 PM
This was basically a practice run for my daughters 2nd birthday in December- i just bought the pan today (hobby lobby has a coupon for 40% off all wilton products- no limit woo hoo!)

ok, no special recipe or instructions, but this was the first time i've ever done anything like this. I used to wilton cake pan and buttercream frosting recipe (YUM) and a duncan hines cake mix.

OK, so when i flipped elmo, he cracked! (AAHH) And i also had a hard time using the decorating tips so any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Jewelry/ Storage/ Art Box on: August 07, 2008 10:00:08 PM
This is my first attempt at this type of project. I purchased this box unfinished from Hobby Lobby and just had some fun. I bought a bunch of scrap fabric a couple of months ago and figured it would look nice as a bottom to the box. To match the design in the fabric, I painted the inside of the box bronze (well, i mixed black and gold paints, so it was close enough)

I figured it would fit on this board because it could be used as a jewelry box.

All comments are welcome.

lid completely open

My next one i plan to do a design on the top, but with the first one i wanted to be cautious.

14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Cross Stitching: Lavender & Lace brand charts questions... on: May 31, 2008 08:41:32 PM
Hello all! I am new to the cross stitch board. I have started about 4 stitch projects but always stopped lol. So i finally complete my first (a 3" santa ornament lol).

I have been looking for some "seasons" cross stitches that i like and have finally fell in love with these:
Has anyone else seen or completed these? It says its a 28 stitch count  Shocked !! I have a hard time with 18 hahaha. Anyway, any advice is appreciated as these are not exactly cheap (and they're just the charts!)

15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / New Goddess Doll/Hanging on: May 29, 2008 07:59:06 PM
Yeah, so i'm sticking with the goddess doll so i can get more used to my sewing machine and also perfect my design of it. (And until i get all my supplies for the poppet  Cheesy ) This one i made for my sis who loves purple and black. I added the beaded pentagram and seed bead tassles- one has a sun on the bottom, other a moon.

Thanks for looking! Comments are most appreciated!


Back: I put the snaps on the back This design was a lot trickier because i had to use 3 pieces of cute fabric instead of 2 AND figure out how to put the place for snaps...

Took me a while to get this right... i started on this before the other one, but this one has an herb sachet inside so i was waiting for my herbs! This one is a gift for my sister's fiance's niece.

here she is:

the snaps on the bottom right are for easy herb changing!

This is the pocket before i filled it- needless to say, it doesn't fold as neat right now. lol

Please post comments! Thanks!
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first (completed!) Goddess Doll on: May 26, 2008 08:17:20 PM
Hello all, i'm new here! I've been browsing for a few days and finally finished my first goddess doll- i have 2 unfinished bc they just went horribly wrong lol... but i did finally finish one! I found out that when i used a stencil i messed up horrible, but when i just freehanded the design onto the fabric, it worked out! She is stuffed with cotton balls- i needed something strong to keep her head and arms from flopping down.
And the necklace was just a suddent idea when i was in hobby lobby today (which by the way has $0.99 mccall patterns until saturday lol)

here you go... please let me know what you think!! (i'd post the pics instead of links, but i don't have 10 posts yet- i'll do it later when i do)

this is a close up- i used glass beads and plastic beads plus a silver moon charm

I'm 25 with a 18 month old daughter Smiley Any scrappers who want to get together- shoot me a PM!! Smiley
