1  Another itty bitty dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by smrfchic on: June 08, 2010 02:12:02 PM
This is the 2nd dress I have made using the Made by Rae pattern for an Itty Bitty Baby Dress.

It's a hot pink and black zebra print. The bodice is lined with plain black fabric, and trimmed with 2 lines of jumbo black rick rack.  There is a band of black fabric around the bottom of the skirt portion.

A closeup of the tag.

At my friend's house, waiting her sweet baby Maisy, due in September.

2  My first Itty Bitty Baby Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by smrfchic on: May 23, 2010 03:11:36 PM

I bought this cute pillowcase a while back, but it had just been languishing away in my fabric bin.  I decided to try out the FREE Made by Rae pattern for an <a href="http://www.made-by-rae.com/2008/04/free-itty-bitty-baby-dress-pattern.html">Itty Bitty Baby Dress</a>.  Because I used a pillowcase, I was able to use the existing hem for the skirt.  I decided to skip the piping because it scared me a little bit, having never used it before.

I made the flower using this tutorial from <a href="http://sewritzytitzy.blogspot.com/2008/11/from-annas-gardenfabric-flower-tutorial.html">SewRitzyTitzy</a>.  I just did 5 petals, and then sewed it on to the dress along with two buttons stacked on top of each other.

3  Preemie Gown in Crochet: Completed Projects by smrfchic on: March 13, 2009 12:53:12 PM
I just finished this preemie bereavement gown.  It is 12" long and so soft and pretty. It is going to be donated along with all of the preemie hats that I am making this year.

Here are two pictures of the progress on it:

And then completed:

It is all crocheted in one piece, so there are no seams to sew up.  I worked on it on and off for 2 days.  I used this pattern:

Come check out my preemie hat thread in the charity forum, and maybe join in!

I made a fifth hat now too... I had just enough left of that last ball of baby yarn to make this one.

I made this hat:

March's hat is done!  This one was made using Bev's Bumpy Hat pattern found at: http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/bevs-bumpy-hat.html

(Sorry the picture came out dark/yellow ~ I'll take a better picture when it is light out!)
I loved this little pattern... it was pretty quick to work up (3 episodes of the Simpsons that were DVR'd, LOL) and I love, love, love the little bumps. What a fun texture!

I don't know why, but that hat reminds me of a pineapple LOL!!

I made a 2nd hat for this month.  It's just a really simple one that was a length of BLO DCs sewn up together, and gathered at the top with a little pom-pom.  Since it wasn't really a "pattern" to follow, I just kept it at my desk and would work on it for a few stitches at a time while waiting for web pages or reboots or whatever.

Here's the 3 hats that I've made so far:

7  Etched glass picture frame bow holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by smrfchic on: February 19, 2009 03:54:14 PM
Last month, I had a giveaway on my blog.  It was a really simple one to enter - to win, you just had to be one of the first 3 comments.  The prize was a handmade craft of my choice, to be received sometime in the next 365 days.  This is one of the crafts that I made:

It started off with this little framed print:

I spraypainted the heck out of the frame with glossy white spray.

I used painter's tape to block out most of the glass, and scrapbooking stickers to spell
"BOWS" across the bottom.

Then I gooped on lots of Etching cream and let it do it's magic.

Inside the frame, I used 2 shades of blue cardstock, some pretty vellum, and a cute picture of her daughter (face edited out to respect the mom's request).  Topped it off with a bow hot-glued on the top corner, and two looooooong 24" pieces of ribbon to clip bows on to.  That's 4 feet of hanging space!

One of the other crafts I completed was this framed Silhouette set: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292762.msg3327282

Now I just need to do one more craft!!

8  silhouettes of my friend's kids in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by smrfchic on: February 17, 2009 03:13:39 PM
This was pretty fun, but kind of time consuming.  Her oldest son has a massive head of curls, which I think was the most difficult... I also had to work just from pictures off of her blog, as this is going to be a surprise, so I had to fudge some details... like her younger daughter just had her hair cut into a short bob with bangs, so I had to crop up the hair from a picture where she had long hair.  One of her favorite colors is green, and the background is 1/2 of a fat quarter since it had to be like 18" long - the frame was too big for scrapbooking paper to be the background.

I ended up pasting the instructions into word and had it sub out every double treble for treble... easy peasy!  Much easier to read.

I am using up some leftover acrylic (way, way, way leftover, I had these over at my mom's house so they're at least 15+ years old), and bought some "soft raspberry" Red Heart to round out the colors:

That was my progress as of last night before I went to bed... I am on the 2nd row of the variegated now.  This definitely uses up a lot of yarn though, I am almost through a whole skein of the variegated already, LOL!!

10  Re: Kids favors, heart-shaped crayons in Weddings and Bridal Showers by smrfchic on: February 13, 2009 06:05:23 PM
The kids wanted to give something to the two toddlers next door, and I didn't want to go anywhere because it was raining. I saw this tutorial on Craftster and realized I had the same foil molds in the cabinet, and there are always broken crayons lurking around!
I taped the little tags on to the backs of each plastic-wrapped heart (ziploc baggies with the zipper part cut off). Their mom LOVED them (the little ones were sleeping off a nasty cold).
