1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doll House Felt Board on: January 01, 2011 01:40:03 PM
A doll house felt board for my daughter for her birthday, coming up in a couple of days.  This is a project from Living Crafts magazine, this year's fall edition.

The house, tree, and yard are sewn out of felt onto a canvas.

The furniture, animals, and people are sewn out of felt as well.

Then you can put everything in the house and yard and use it to make up great stories!

There are some flowers for the yard as well,  somehow they didn't make it into the picture.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Stamp Ink on: August 21, 2009 05:58:39 AM
I am wanting to stamp an image onto paper, and then color it in.  These are animal pictures for a memory game I'm working on.  I am using colored pencils to color in the image.  I stamped the image and let it dry overnight before I started coloring and it was still a big mess, the colored pencil picked up the black from the stamp and made streaks all over the place.  Is there a trick to this?  Or a particular brand of inkpad that will dry so I can color it in?
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / knitted play farm mat swap on: August 07, 2009 06:25:42 AM
I saw this knitted farm mat over on ravelry this morning and I am in love!  Here is the link to the magazine:

And here is the ravelry page, if you have an account there: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/felted-farm-playmat

This would be a huge swap but I feel it would totally be worth it!  Each person would be assigned one of the 12 blocks of the mat and would make that block X12 - one for each person.  Then each person assembles their mat in the order they want and finishes it by felting or fabric backing.

Gauge would be extremely important for this project so that all the squares match up - maybe we all use the same yarn brand or something.

Any interest?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Unfinished Basement Help Please! on: June 27, 2009 06:42:57 AM
You all are so crafty and full of good ideas over here!  I am in dire need of some inspiration!

I have a pretty standard unfinished basement.  The munchkin is getting big enough (and has enough toys) that we really need a play room!  And I'd like my craft area to be on the same floor as her toys - right now that's upstairs and toys are in the living room.  And . . . My craft room/office needs to be turned into a bedroom so we can think about having kid #2.  So . . . . long story short, my problem is that I need my basement to be useable, but we don't have the $$ to finish it.  There isn't even any drywall down there.  I really just want one big room so I'm thinking curtain off the laundry area, and then cover the walls with something (sheets?  Paint?  I'd like a corkboard on one part of a wall . . . maybe that chalkboard paint??) and do something with the floors (again, paint and rugs?  carpet squares?)

Can anyone help me make my ideas a little more cohesive?  Thanks!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt Sushi! on: June 26, 2009 06:41:47 AM
My latest contribution to the addictive world of felt food - sushi!!!  This sushi is all hand sewn, a first for me.

Here's the whole lot:

And here are some closeups:

Egg, Soy Sauce, and Dipping Bowl

Giant Clam, Squid, and Scallop

Salmon and Tuna

Prawn and Octopus

Sushi Rice blocks that all the sushi sits on

Not pictured in the closeups are the sushi rolls (2 cucumber and 2 tuna) and the ginger rose and wasabi paste leaf.

Thanks for looking!!   Grin
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Two Summer Outfits on: June 22, 2009 01:17:37 PM
I made these outfits for a friend of mine.  We go to try them on this afternoon, so I might be able to come up with action shots later!

Butterfly halter top and shorts for the 7 year old girl who loves pink and yellow and butterflies:

Purple shirt and shorts for the 5 year old boy whose favorite color is purple!  It was sooo hard to find non-florally purple fabric!:

It was my first time doing a collar, and the front facing for all the buttons and button holes.  I'm pretty happy with how they turned out - not perfect, but you can't see my mistakes unless you're really looking for them!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / More Baby T-Shirt Cuteness! on: June 22, 2009 01:12:40 PM
These shirts are for another cousin of mine whose wife is due in two weeks!  They decided to keep the sex of the baby a mystery, so gender neutral it is!  Some are stenciled and some are applique. 

A closeup of the appliqued ones:

And a link to my post about the bibs:
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Garden Tags - my first attempt at polymer clay!! on: June 19, 2009 08:17:06 PM
I got a nice poly clay starter kit from the OWS swap and I found just the thing to try it out on.  My dad is an avid gardener - his mom grew up on a farm, and I think he wishes he did too.  He doesn't have a lot of room to garden at his house, but still manages to grow quite a few things.  I made him these plant tags for father's day! 

Thanks for looking!  Comments/critique always welcome.   Grin
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / lil monster baby bib on: June 07, 2009 06:41:55 PM
Sooo . . . what do you make someone who is having their second boy?  Something practical, and oh-so-cute!

I can't take credit for the idea for these - I saw them on etsy somewhere.  But I LOVE them, and why buy something when you can make it?  I'm going to make several for my cousin for a baby gift. 

The front is woven cotton, and the back is a minkee fabric.  The appliques and tooth are fleece scraps I had laying around.

Thanks for looking!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / summer wardrobe for the munchkin on: June 07, 2009 12:15:28 PM
I finally finished these dresses for the munchkin to wear this summer!  They are so versatile and easy. 

I LOVE these fabrics!!!

Here's a closeup of front and back of the munchkin's favorite.  She's enamored of butterflies right now.
