111  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pearl and Crystal Wedding Necklace on: September 07, 2011 05:35:07 PM
My brother-in-law is getting married on the 17th and I made his bride a necklace. Her dress is covered in pearls and every once in a while there is a sequin that gives it a bit of sparkle. She's planning on wearing diamond studs and she wanted the necklace to match the earrings and her wedding ring. HE wanted it to not cover much of her neck.

So I got online and looked around and found a necklace that looked like it would work. Then I replicated it. This is the end result.

This was my first time trying bead weaving and I love it! The pattern comes from the book Beaded Allure. I made it the size she suggested, but because I used the wrong size closure beads it came out slightly larger. So it's a tiny bit too big for me. Oh well. Next time I'll know better.

113  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doll Diaper Bag on: August 05, 2011 08:29:19 PM

I made this doll diaper bag for my daughters birthday. I found the tutorial at Twelve Crafts Till Christmas. The only thing I did different was pocket placements.
114  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sparkles on: August 05, 2011 08:07:08 PM

This is Sparkles. She was made for my daughter for her 5th birthday. Her hair is kind of big, but super soft, and honestly, my daughters hair looks kind of like that sometimes too.

She was named Sparkles because of her sparkly green and purple eyes.

(Sorry about the small size of the pictures. They're from my phone and for some reason saved to my computer small.)
115  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Another Pillowcase Nightgown on: June 12, 2011 08:13:01 PM

I liked the first pillowcase nightgown I made so much, I decided to make a second one. Plus when the pillowcase only costs 99 cents, how can you lose?

The pillow is yellow with purple flowers, so I used Purple double fold bias tape around the neck and for the tie, and added a purple ribbon around the seam of the top joining the skirt.

If you want to try making one of your own, I followed this tutorial from Gingercake.
116  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pillowcase Nightgown on: June 10, 2011 05:51:57 PM

I made this adorable nightgown from a tutorial over at Gingercake. It was super easy and turns out great. She only has it available in a 4T, but it's just a matter of resizing the pattern pieces. I left it the same because my daughters 4, however, she's small for her age, so it turned out a tiny bit large.

You can't see it in the picture (and honestly you can't really see it unless you're looking really closely in real life) but there are darker pink vertical stripes. Also there are darker pink flowers on the ruffle. (The best part about this is that the ruffle was already a part of the pillow case so I didn't have to do anything.)

In her tutorial she used a button closer, but she suggested also using ties if you preferred. I just happened to have pink bias tape in my stash, so I chose that route for binding the neck and the back and just let it go out to be ties. All I had to buy to make this adorable nightgown was the pillowcase which I got at the thrift store for 99 cents. Best 99 cents I ever spent!
117  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Teddy Bear on: May 31, 2011 09:45:54 PM

I used the Funky Friends Factory Honey the Teddy Bear to make this little guy. He's going to be a present for my son who is turning 1. Because of this I opted not to give him the safety eyes, or button eyes, the pattern called for. I also didn't give him a nose, because I didn't give him eyes. I kind of like the look though.

118  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Teal and Purple Mermaid Poppet. on: May 27, 2011 10:40:45 AM
I made this mermaid for puamelia in the Mini Poppet swap.

AlwaysInspired gave me some great information on how to go about making a mermaid. For the shape of her tail I actually took the leg pattern that inez used and then shared for her contortionist poppet Gloria. I just widened it at parts and added a fin instead of a foot at the bottom.

Her hair is Yarn Bee's Infatuation in the Ocean colorway and is amazingly soft. You could sit and stroke it all day. It does shed a little though.

When I had finished her body I thought she needed a little something, so I added seed beads to the bottom of her tail.

Her top is just a rectangle that I scrunched in the middle and then sewed over to keep it gathered in. In the back it is done up corset style.

And how could she not have a necklace?  Also you can see a closer shot of her top from the front.

She was pretty much done when I thought she was looking a little plain in the belly area so I added a belt. (It's non-removable.)

I love how she turned out and was so sad to see her go, as was my four year old daughter. She has consoled herself, however, by telling me I can just make her a pink one instead!
119  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cotton Candy Skirt on: May 16, 2011 01:53:18 PM
I just made the Cotton Candy Skirt from Simple Simon & Company. It's super simple and super adorable!

120  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Massive inchie project help on: May 10, 2011 01:25:22 PM
I wanted to make a mosaic of Link from The Legend of Zelda games and I wanted the "tiles" to actually be inchies. Has anyone ever done anything like this and will it work? I was thinking of having each inchie be Legend of Zelda themed, but I'm not sure how it will look if the background is the color needed for the overall picture with a smaller picture on it not in those colors.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance.
