2  my little fairy in Halloween Costumes by r.forslund on: November 02, 2010 07:58:55 AM

this was my little ones first trick or treat. we were suppose to be flying back to america but our plans changed last minute so i had to come up with this pretty quick. she held still long enough for these two shots. lol. the dress was made from an old prom dress and i just added ribbon and tulle. i made the wings out of wire clothes hangers, white leggings and layers of tulle. i had so much fun making it.

we ended up trick or treating for about 30 mins before she got bored and we took her out for burgers and ice cream. lol. 8 )

3  hooded scarf pattern in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by r.forslund on: August 01, 2010 08:31:09 AM
so im getting a jump start on my winter wear and i found this hooded scarf on etsy, but let face it why spend 60$ on something you can make for less than 20$, no matter how gorgeous it is. im still kinda new to the wonderful world of crochet so without a pattern i get kinda lost. ive search the web and i cant seem to find anything.

can any one give me some helpful hints. how to begin. or even a pattern similar in look. please and thank you.

4  very first fully finished quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by r.forslund on: July 06, 2010 03:12:31 PM
im so proud with how this quit turned out. its my very first fully finished quilt. it took forever bc my daughter hates me being on my sewing machine. but i cant wait to get started on a thicker quilt for winter.

this one almost fits our eu king bed, so im guess its about a queen or at least a full. its very thin bc it gets really hot here in the summers. the top was suppose to be a pattern called "broken dishes" but i just used a bunch of fat quarters i had. so theres not really any color scheme. the backing is just a sage sheet we had that i wrapped around to make a boarder.

c & c welcome.  Grin

9  Reserve chute bites the dust.. in Discussion and Questions by r.forslund on: March 29, 2010 12:33:18 AM
so here in germany the law is your reserve chute can not be repacked once its older than 15 or 20 yrs and dh's chute has hit its limit. the jump zone he goes to wanted to put it on display but dh being the amazing man he is brought it home to me so i could turn it into something. the only problem is i have no idea what to do with it. i saw this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281443.0 a while back and thought it was just the coolest thing in the world.. but have decided against attempting it. since this was dh's very first rig (and since he waited and saved so long for it) i wanted to turn it into something he could use. like a woobie. (his military issue blanket made of nylon) im not really sure how big it is but when my little one was napping i got a quick look and took some pictures to post. any ideas of what i could possibly do with a 20 yr old reserve chute?? and how would i even go about cutting it up to reassemble?? its in wonderful shape., thankfully it never had to be deployed.. so dh was like a kid in a candy store when he got to deploy it.

10  synthetic dread falls. questions. in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by r.forslund on: March 21, 2010 01:33:27 AM
i've been obsessed with dreads for years now but im to whimsical and lazy to actual dread my own hair. so i was thinking about making or buying some dread falls. i really dont wanna spend $100 for a piece when the materials are so cheap, but i dont think im talented enough to actual make the product im looking for. especially not my first time. so.. have you found it easier to make your own or purchase? if you make them do you have any tips. and if you buy, who do you buy from? im really just looking for some change. so if you have any other hair tips or ideas please tell. i have brown wavy hair down to my mid to lower back. im not willing to cut or dye it. (dyeing is just to much of a hassle and its taken me yrs to grow it back out) ive tried glass beads but i have an 8 month old and im scared if they come out and i dont notice she could find them. is there any other type of "hair jewelry" out there?

here are some pics of what ive been looking at..
