21  Doll poncho in Crochet: Completed Projects by smrfchic on: January 09, 2009 04:13:31 PM
I wanted to give this pattern a try before making a poncho for my middle DD, so I made this doll-sized poncho for my oldest DD.  The pattern is the free lacy shells poncho from Luv2Crochet.com
It's made in Peaches N Cream cotton yarn in "Sea Mist" with a size F hook.

I made 3 more before the deadline. I can't wait to find out what the final tally is!

I've made two more!

I don't have a picture of the second one yet, as she grabbed it from me as soon as I finished tying the pom-pom on, but the last one was in solid baby blue. Smiley

24  Can you stand another ear warmer? in Crochet: Completed Projects by smrfchic on: January 07, 2009 05:35:31 PM
My daughter insisted on wearing her hair in a ponytail today, and then complained all the way to school that her ears were sooooo cold.  I worked this up before she got home, but didn't finish it off until I knew it would fit her.  She loves it!! I didn't use a pattern, but can tell you how I made it if anyone would like to know.  It was very simple!

25  That squirrel had to die. in Stenciling: Completed Projects by smrfchic on: December 24, 2008 10:14:17 AM
Goodbye squirrel
With black-eyed peas,
You're gonna taste good to me
It's you or me,
Come on out of that tree
Hey guess what,
You've eaten your last nut

lyrics from Goodbye Squirrel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcuk5GaSUOU

When we went on our annual family camping trip this year, my oldest son (14 now) was having a great time chasing squirrels around the campground on his bike.  Unfortunately, what had to have been the world's fattest squirrel, made a bad miscalculation and ran right under his tire.  Since then, we've cracked numerous jokes about him and his squirrel killing accident... Everytime we see one running around, we joke "Oh, it's a good thing for him that you don't have your bike."  I've been looking for a squirrel beanie baby to wrap up as a Christmas present for him, but haven't had any luck finding one... but I did make this for him to open up on Christmas day:

(I took the sponge and kind of smeared around the tail after removing the stencil to try to make it look furrier.)

Here's the original picture from the web:

Cut out and ironed on to the shirt:

And the painting in progress... waiting for it to dry was killer!

I'm still thinking about rolling a bike tire in paint and running it across the shirt... any thoughts?

26  Stained toddler tees to adorable newborn hats. in Crafty Charitable/Social Causes by smrfchic on: December 03, 2008 01:51:44 PM
A friend linked me to the Caps-to-Cap-Haitien Project, which introduced their first project of making newborn infant caps to be distributed as part of safe birthing kits, to try to help reduce the infant mortality rate in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
Here's a link for more info on the project, and the downloadable pattern: http://www.soulemama.com/mama_to_mama/2008/11/the-caps-to-cap.html

Here are the shirts that I used:

They're toddler t-shirts.  They had stains down the middle of the chest, so I placed the pattern off center and walah - no stains on the caps!  For the white cap with the rainbow stripe, I cut the stripe off the back of the shirt and sewed it in place across the front of the cap, to cover up some stains that I couldn't avoid when cutting.  I'm planning on making a couple more out of my own tees as well, and then getting them in the mail this weekend.

Here's the finished hats:

Yeah!! I finished it up with some green WoolEase I had laying around... very soft and cuddly, and easy to whip up while watching TV!
