1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Tea Party Play Mat on: December 29, 2009 05:04:27 AM
For Christmas I made my daughter a tea party play mat. I got the idea here http://xxsweetfancyxx.blogspot.com/2009/08/coopers-tea-party.html

The tea cups are open at the top so she can put in a play tea bag (made of tulle and felt scraps). The cookies, plates and tray all have velcro so they can be moved around. This project was so much fun and I am looking forward to adding more pieces to it.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Monograms are fun!! on: October 22, 2009 05:52:14 PM

After getting a monogram book at Joanns, I am addicted to monograms!! They go so quick. The purple J I did on a vintage hankie for my mom.  I am making everyone on my Christmas list monogrammed pillowcase sets so that's what the c and the b are.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Fall Jumper on: October 20, 2009 10:53:40 AM

I just finished this jumper for my daughter from one of those new 'Project Runway' patterns. The way they are laid out is a little annoying, but I guess that's how it is when you can pick and choose so many options. However, I am pretty happy with how it turned out and she loves it! I ended up finding the perfect heart-shaped beads to match from my stash...I love it when that happens!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Apron for my daughter on: September 14, 2009 12:28:21 PM
Here is an apron I made for my daughter. It is reversible. Everything was from my stash, and although I love the brown ribbon I used for ties, I won't use ribbon again for ties. The ribbon seems to slip too much.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Owl Apron on: September 14, 2009 06:56:49 AM
I made this apron a while back and am just now posting pictures of it. I made a half apron, using the directions from the book A is for Apron, and appliqued a little owl on it out of scraps. That was my first time embellishing an apron like that, but I am looking forward to doing it again. I am getting addicted to making aprons...you can never have too many, right? Grin

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Vegbee's Coat Pattern w/Vintage Fabric!! on: September 14, 2009 06:50:07 AM

I was lucky enough to win a pattern a while back from the talented Vegbee (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5098546) and it was fabulous! I will definitely be making it again. I was able to find both the shell and lining vintage fabrics at yard sales for less than two bucks, after scouring fabric stores for the 'right' fabric. I used buttons from my grandmother's sewing basket to finish it off. (that is particularly fun because the coat is for my daughter, who is named after my grandma)
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Apron on: June 16, 2009 11:57:58 AM
I made this for my friend who loves to cook. She has a really cool dog named Maxwell and while I have never embroidered a dog's portrait before, I just had to give it a try!  I am happy with how it turned out, and she just got it yesterday and loved it.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tree Skirt from a table cloth! on: November 19, 2008 05:16:09 AM
I found a gorgeous table cloth on clearance at Target for $4.99. I bought it, knowing I could make something out of it. I ended up making a tree skirt! I still have a bunch of fabric left over, so if i get any genius ideas I can make something else with it.  Wink I was able to incorporate the border of the tablecloth as the edge of the skirt. The only thing is the fabric gets wrinkly fast!

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / I Spy Toy on: November 12, 2008 10:25:01 AM
Somewhere on the vast world wide web, I saw someone selling these 'I Spy bags' for $22 bucks! I thought they were really cool and like a true crafter, I decided I could easily make my own. It took me less than half an hour. I dug out little trinkets from my overflowing button jar and used tablecloth vinyl for the window. Poured in some rice and voila! A Christmas present for my son. Ugh. Now that I look at the picture the corners are going to bug me. I'll have to fix them up.

So what ages might this be appropriate for? My son is 3 and I think he'll like it, but what about elementary ages? Any thoughts appreciated.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Purse from a skirt! on: November 12, 2008 07:44:37 AM
I found a wonderful book at the library called 20 Vintage Bags or something like that. I want to try them all! I started by making this one. I used an old skirt I had. I was able to use the skirt lining and ribbon detail too! All I had to add was interfacing. Next time, I think I'll make the handle shorter, and maybe enlarge the pattern a bit.
