2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Last dance with Mary Jane on: January 25, 2010 08:48:13 PM

For Christmas I made slippers galore. They're so comfy and everyone I gave them to loved them! Not bad for an easy instant gratification project!

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / not your average library on: January 25, 2010 08:37:13 PM

I grew up with a family of four with one bathroom and one major problem with that bathroom....it was my dad's favorite place to read!!!! Well, I'm not sure it was his favorite but he would stay in there and read for long periods of time while the rest of us lined up in the hallway doing the potty dance waiting for our turn. So when I came across this pattern I almost died laughing in the store. My mom promised to let him hang it in the bathroom and so I started stitching.

So I made 3 different clocks for Christmas presents this year

Star Trek for my Father in Law:

Batman for my Brother in Law:

and Smokey the Bear for my Dad:

After I already gave them away my dad noticed that I hada brain fart and put the hands back on out of order... so a tip If you make these yourselves put all the hands to 12:00 and adjust from there !

My cousin and I share a love of Animal Crossing. I was stumped on what to make a 13 year old boy for Christmas. So I came up with this. I am one to give credit where credit is due, I learned how to use this technique from a tutorial by OneChordWonder whose work I admire greatly.  

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / They call me MISTER PIG!!!!! on: January 25, 2010 07:31:47 PM
My 3 year old nephew's best friend is his stuffed animal piggy. His mom requested a hat with earflaps for his Christmas present. I couldn't bring myself to make him a boring old hat. It did feel odd making a PINK hat for my nephew but I think the final product ended up not too girly.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first Afgahn on: January 25, 2010 07:24:05 PM
I made a giant granny square for a afgahn for my MIL's Christmas Present.    
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / For Mr. Wayne's bat remotes on: January 23, 2010 12:34:03 AM
I was looking for good "man gifts" to make for christmas and stumbled across the tutorial for this at http://www.kundhi.com/blog/2009/04/14/remote-control-pillow-pattern/
My brother in law loves all things Batman, as do I....so I made him this for Christmas. It was hell to hand sew this. I had to have my husband pull out the needle each go with a pliers.
  the front. The stitching may have looked that bad in person...I don't remember it being so though.
and the back

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Live long and never lose your remotes on: January 23, 2010 12:26:19 AM
I found this tutorial  http://www.kundhi.com/blog/2009/04/14/remote-control-pillow-pattern/ and decided that was the perfect gift for my male relatives' Christmas presents.  I chose to use the Star trek Sciences symbol for my father in law since he's a huge fan and a pharmacist. the front  and the back (yes it looks like I was drunk when I made the pockets, I was sober but lacking talent working with fleece)
