1  Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6 in Halloween Costumes by face! on: November 08, 2015 08:08:34 PM

My 4 year old wanted to go as Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6 this year. We love this movie and at one point I had grand plans of making costumes for the whole family, but reality sets in and I ended up with one awesome Honey Lemon costume and a really sad attempt at a Baymax costume for her baby sister.

The hat was inspired by a pattern I saw on Etsy. I didn't end up buying the pattern and just winged it. Wung it?

The purse was made out of duck tape. I've never made anything out of duck tape before, but it was even easier than I could have hoped. I found the heart image via google. I think I used this one. I bought the colored ping pong balls and attached them with hook and loop coins so that she could detach the balls and throw them. And the best part of all was that it held her halloween candy perfectly!

I sewed the dress and I haven't really sewn anything since home ec class 20+ years ago so that was an adventure. It was a good thing I had bought enough fabric to take a couple stabs at it. The "armor" was made out of a red turtleneck that I bought at the thrift store for $1.00 and a dixie cup. The tights were bought on ebay and I bought two pairs so that I could take one pair and cut a hole in the crotch and put it over her head like a shirt. Worked like a charm and she stayed super warm during trick or treating.

Overall, I was super happy with how it all came out and most importantly, my daughter loved it!

2  my amazing technicolor crochet ripple blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by face! on: January 21, 2009 07:08:38 AM
I got the pattern out of Jan Eaton's 200 ripple stitch patterns.  I believe it was called soft waves.   I used knitpicks swish worsted yarn (100% superwash merino wool) in a variety of colors that are not all available anymore....that should give you an idea of how long i've been working on this.  This was sort of the project I worked on when I didn't feel like working on anything else.  As far as size goes, you can get an idea from the width based off my couch.  The length is long enough to cover the average person's toes and still come up to their neck when they are cuddled on the couch.  :-)

Picture time!

4  reupholstered chairs for our dining room table in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by face! on: September 14, 2007 06:55:30 PM
We bought this dining room table from a guy on craigslist when we bought our new house at the end of July.  I finally got around to recovering the chairs for it. 

This is what they looked like when we got it:

this is what was underneath the ugly red vinyl (cute, but VERY dirty):

and this is what I did to them.  fabric is Etsuko Furuya that I got from Reprodepot.com

5  super easy cupcake decorating idea in Dessert by face! on: September 01, 2007 05:28:30 PM
I think this worked really well...I needed a really fast way to make an impact with these cupcakes as they were for a party with really short notice.   i used box cake mix and store bought icing.   I dyed half the icing blue.   Iced half white and the other half blue.  Then I put red candy melts on them and a little dab of the other icing color.   They looked really mod and definitely vibed well with the whole blue and red decor thing we had going on. Cheers!

6  owl purse in Crochet: Completed Projects by face! on: June 23, 2007 11:10:30 PM
I bought this pattern from anapaulaoli on etsy.  It's a really fast and easy pattern, I highly recommend it.  The only thing I don't like is that the only 5 inch zipper hobby lobby had was black.

i definitely think you should play apples to apples.  that game is lots of fun.   

you could make sour apple martinis if people are going to be of drinking age.  you could have the apple dumpling gang movie playing in the background with the sound muted.   You could make huge apples with construction paper and post them around the room with different faces relating to different stages of drunkenness, ie:smiley apple, frowning apple, dizzy apple, puking apple, passed out apple  - my brilliant friend LM did this with regular smiley faces for a hospital themed party she had..but i think the idea would be cute in this theme too.   that's all i got right now.

9  teenage mutant ninja turtle hat/masks TMNT in Crochet: Completed Projects by face! on: March 05, 2007 07:33:28 PM
This is my first attempt so don't be too critical.  I've never really created my own pattern.  This is my attempt at a Raphael TMNT mask.   I'm making Donatello's, Michelangelo's and Leonardo's in the next couple days.   My friends and I will be wearing them to see the new movie opening night.  I think on the next attempt I'll find a tighter pattern for the green portion...that should be easy to fix.  I'm really happy with the way the eye portion turned out though so I don't think I will need to tweak that at all.  I think this may turn out to be the coolest thing I've made so far.  I'm sure I'll update with pictures of the whole crew when I get them done.

10  the unsymmetrical hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by face! on: March 05, 2007 07:24:59 PM
I made this for my boyfriend.  it is loosely based off the "Boy Beanie" in Happy Hooker.  The eyerolling means he likes it.
