1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dress Up Piggy on: August 14, 2019 02:46:41 PM
I made this little pig for a little girls 3rd birthday present.

She's about 18" and is made from a Dolls and Daydreams Pattern.



ETA: Sorry about the picture being sideways. I tried rotating it, but then it just appeared in the same direction but squashed on my computer.
2  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Huck Lace Kitchen Towels on: April 04, 2019 12:21:12 PM
I wove these towels on my 8 shaft loom. I had an all white warp and then used different colors in the weft. The draft came from "The Weaver's Book of 8 Shaft Patterns" by Carol Strickler.  The towels all used the same threading but I varied up the treadling.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Butterfly Shadow Boxes on: January 22, 2019 07:23:55 AM


I was lucky enough to receive a Cricut Maker for Christmas and decided to use it to make some decor for my little girls room.

I used the tutorial and SVG file for a butterfly pop up card from
The blog JenniferMaker: https://jennifermaker.com/diy-pop-butterfly-card-tutorial-easy-5-x-7/. To give them dimension I put 5 foam adhesive squares under the back of the butterflies.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Perler Bead Rainbow Necklace on: April 01, 2018 04:06:24 AM


I was just playing around with perler beads and made a rainbow. I then decided to turn it into a necklace instead of having it just sit around collecting dust. My 5 year old saw it, and immediately claimed it as her own.
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Be Awesome Round 4? on: March 20, 2018 02:07:22 PM
Is anyone interested in another round of the Be Awesome swap? It has been several years since the last one. rackycoo was the orginizer of the previous rounds.

Here's a link the most recent round: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438259.0
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Old Man's Western Shirt to Baby's Western Dress on: February 28, 2018 05:21:02 PM
My sister had a shirt that used to be my grandpa's that she got as something to remember him by after he died. She decided it wasn't really all that useful just hanging in a closet and asked me to make it into a dress for her 3 month old.



The shirt (I forgot to take a picture oops) was very see through so I pulled some fabric from my stash to use as lining. And for a long time, that is as far as I got. I kept putting off making the dress because I was having a hard time figuring out how to make it. I didn't want to make a peasant dress style and I wanted to incorporate the snaps. Also, I was more than a little intimidated to cut into this shirt because there was no replacing it if I messed up. And wouldn't you know it, I cut out the bodice pieces wrong.

I had found and bought a pattern for a baby dress with buttons all down the back. However, it made a separate button placket for the entire dress. I didn't want to do this because I was planning on using the snaps already on the shirt and just wanted to cut out bodice pieces and skirt pieces. In hind sight, I could have just used any baby dress pattern and it would have worked. (Oh well. Live and learn.)  Since I had paid for the pattern I wanted to use the bodice pieces (to justify my having purchased it in the first place). But when I cut the pieces out, I had forgotten about the separate button placket. Which meant that my pieces were to short to overlap and button up. Gah!

Luckily, it turned out to be a fortunate thing. Because of this the front bodice piece is the blue fabric without being covered by the white, and I think it turned out really cute. To fix my mistake I just sandwiched the snap plackets that I cut off from the too small bodice pieces in between the new blue outer bodice piece and the lining.  This meant that the top of the snap placket was raw, while the rest of the neckline wasn't. So to fix this, I added bias tape around the entire neckline.

To show the pictures of the dress to my sister (who lives in another state) and to kind of check fit, I used my 6 month old as a model. It was a little tight on her, but luckily fits my niece perfectly and matches her cowgirl boots.



And here's a closer look at the sleeves, which is my favorite part of the dress.  I made them using the cuffs from the shirt.

9  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Trio of Baby Blankets on: January 12, 2018 08:46:46 AM
My Sister, my Sister-in-Law, and I all had baby girls this past year (mine in August, both of theirs in November), so I decided to make us all almost matching blankets. All three were woven on the same warp, but each one used a different color of weft.







10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Yarn Dump on: January 12, 2018 08:34:57 AM
I realized I haven't been very good at posting my handspun yarn. So here are several that I have spun.
