21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby hat for sunny days on: April 02, 2010 05:17:08 AM
As spring is starting, I looked in shops for a sun hat for my almost 9 months old son. For girls there are very cute hats, but for boys they only sell baseball caps, which is not at all my style.
Then I found this pattern on the internet and gave it a try:
It's reversible and I really like how it came out! I used about 6 different fabrics. (sorry for my laundry on the background...)

I like this side most. Especially because I have a matching bag made from the cow-fabric  Cool
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Stone wallet made from table cloth! on: March 01, 2010 06:54:25 AM
I've been looking for a pattern to make a wallet that I can use for my cash, paper money and cards, but could't find one, so decided to copy my old wallet.  Before using my best fabric I wanted to make a prototype of an old piece of table cloth.

Even though it's a little askew I like the result so much that I started using it immediately  Wink Actually I'm quite proud of this Grin first attempt:

I used diaper snaps for closures:

Half open:

And completely opened:

And a well sized pocket for paper money and a seperate one for my drivers license and bus tickets:

Ok, I'm very happy with it  Wink...

As I plan on making some more (maybe out of normal fabric) I'd really like to have some C&C for improving them! Thanks for looking.
23  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Welcome to my jungle - Baby play mat on: February 21, 2010 12:09:16 PM
I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right thread, because I didn't plan on doing some quilting. But while making this playmat for my little boy I discovered I had to sew the front, back and inner material together and I think this might be called a first attempt at quilting  Wink As I couldnt find my pencil lines anymore, I just did some freestyle machine `quilting`...

First, a detail; I sewed on a pocket, so a toy can be hidden inside:

And some jean buttons I had left from a previous project (repairing my dads jacket  Wink)

And the whole mat:


24  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Wash/dishcloth material on: February 09, 2010 04:58:26 AM
Hi, I have some scrap yarn and would like to use it for making dish/washcloth, but I'm not sure if it's the right material.. Can I only use 100% cotton or is acrylic also good Huh?
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Slippers! on: February 01, 2010 11:20:23 AM
I'm quite new to crochet but found this tutorial from Andrena that was very easy to follow:

And made myself a pair of warm slippers
(oh, sorry for me wearing 2 different socks, I never find 2 of the same colour...)

c&c welcome!
26  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Nourishing and natural MP soap bar: dead sea mud and shea butter! on: January 10, 2010 02:31:16 AM

As a souvernir from Jordany, friends brought me a package of dead sea mud. But as I'm not the kind of person for a mask I decided to use it for my first time soap making. (I'm a great fan of Lush soaps, but they're so expensive, so decided to make some myself.. Grin)

I used 100% natural and palm free glycerin soap base (bought at Soapqueen in the Netherlands), natural shea butter and orange and lemon etheric oils.

One thing I didn't think of: mud sinks to the bottom of the mold and shea butter floats (ok, that's 2 things) Tongue. So the result is a soap with 2 layers, but it actually turned out pretty good I think.

In the mold:

The bar:

And in slices:

The lemon and orange oils give a very fresh smell to the bar and I can't wait to try it.

Do you guys have any tips on material for wrapping the pieces of soap for keeping and giving?
Any other tips/comments?

27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Candles on: December 14, 2009 03:34:32 AM
Candles make perfect presents for this period with holidays and long evenings and they're so fun to make. I bought some molds some time ago; my fav is the star! Family and friends love them and keep their candle leftovers for me, so I can use it to make them new ones  Wink I made more, but already gave them away.. Wink

Sorry for the dirty window sill, need to do some cleaning  Roll Eyes

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Super comfy harem flees pyjama pants on: December 07, 2009 03:07:11 AM
Although it's getting pretty cold here, shops are only selling thin summer-ish pyjama pants. So I decided to buy some warm fabric and make a pair myself  Cool. I found fleece in 2 colours (purple and dark grey) and made a pair with contrasting pockets on it, big enough to put my hands in. I really like the "harem"/fantasy style (reminds me of Dragon Quest) and it's the most comfy pair of pyjama pants I ever had! 

I used a regular pants pattern.
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Plushies on: December 07, 2009 01:12:56 AM
Made a terrycloth plushie for my 5 month old baby to give with St. Nicolas (Dutch holiday on the 5th of december, we give presents in stead of with Christmas) It looks nice, feels nice and is easy to hold for him, it's an elephant! I didn't put much stuffing in it, so it feels a little "floffy"  Wink.

The other side:

I think he likes it, but he was really tired that afternoon.. Wink
