71  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Link the Poppet on: March 08, 2010 07:39:58 AM
So here he is. I made a baby gift for my cousins baby but always give a gift for any older children as well so I made her 5 yr old daughter a Link poppet from the animie poppet pattern. Since she is obsesed with Link, and now they want me to make her a Zelda poppet for her birthday. Here he is his sword is attached with velcro so she can take him off.

The happy kiddo with her new "boyfriend" as she calls him.

Thank you for looking.
72  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Birthday PJs on: March 01, 2010 11:50:20 AM
My niece loves Cars since her dad runs a tow truck and when he goes on a tow she says he is on a Mator run so for her 4th bday I made her some girly pjs out of the Cars material. Here they are they are a little big but they will shrink in the wash and even then maybe able to wear next year too. Thank you for looking.
73  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Monster for Her Birthday on: March 01, 2010 11:47:46 AM

So my niece is afraid of monsters in the dark so my husband told her Aunt Beth could make her a nice monster that she could keep with her to keep the other monsters away. He let her pic the monster from several picture and then handed me the picture told me this is what she wants and for it to be purple fun fur.  
So I went out to find the material that my husband assumes grows on trees and I could find other colors but not the purple she wanted to I happened to be at Wallyworld shopping and there it was a purple throw rug out of fun fur, and as a bonus it was lined with non stick material so I got almost one yard of fun fur and nonstick material for $20. So I brought it home and started to sew. Here is the finished product that my niece opened for her birthday and took it to my husband and said "here you hold this I dont want it." What will we do with 4 year olds? Hope you enjoy thank you for looking.

74  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Twin blankets sort of on: February 02, 2010 09:40:00 AM
So my cousin found out that she is having twins a boy and a girl, so I wanted to make quilts for them that were simular but also different. So I found a pattern I loved and then I found material from the same manufacture with pink, greens and browns and one with blues, greens and browns. Since the same manufacture the greens and browns were the same so I just needed the blue and the pink to be different so here they are they are just quilt tops at this point have to get backing when I get paid. Hope that you like them. Comments and suggestions welcome.

***Wanted to update this and post the final products and the shower pics.
These are the matching booties I made and pinned on so when she opened the blankets the booties were attached.

75  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Blanket for Baby cousin on: February 02, 2010 09:34:42 AM
So I found this pattern that I just loved but didnt have the occasion to make it then my cousin got preggo and when she said she was having a boy I just knew. Her and her fiance love green so I changed the colors to green and brown. Hope that you enjoy.

The individual squares

The border I stitched it free hand, not very good but my first try at it.

The backing Material

The matching elephant from the left over material.

Since I quilted the blanket with clear thread I quilted the elephant pieces with the same thread before I sewed together it is a cute affect but cant see in pic.
Thank you for looking.

77  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First Blanket for Me! on: January 19, 2010 11:32:30 AM
Ok so not long ago I relized that I had made many things for others and not much for myself over the years. So I bought a kit to make myself a blanket. But never got around to making it and when I did I didnt like the pattern, so it sat in my stash for several years. Then a week and a half ago I found a pic in marymaxim catalogue that I liked so I pulled out that yarn and made it into this.

My inspiration

There are 2 types of squares on large the the other four small together, with the colors going opposite.

I had one square that I ran out of White yarn for so my I substituted it with pink. It is a blanket for me after all doesnt have to be perfect.

Thank you for looking. Comments welcome.

Thank you.
79  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Scrub Caps for my Mom Now with Tut on: December 30, 2009 10:47:50 PM
So my mom went back to work as a scrub tech after 3 years of being stay at home grandma and wanted some cute hats. She handed me this cute hat she had bought and wanted to know if I could try to make one for her here are my handy works, and she likes the way I make the front better she says it holds the sweat better. Please enjoy.

Moms Scrub cap
Materials needed:
1/2 yd of material for puff of the hat
1/4 yd material for the band
-alternative 2 fat quarters for the Puff allow for a seam in center of the puff
-1 fat quarter for the band or a scrap large enough
- if want the hat all same material can all be done with 1/2 yd material
Interfacing for the band
1/4 in wide elastic
1 Cord stop

21 inch circle  (cut 1)
Band 15 in long and in the middle 2 1/4 in gradually getting smaller toward end (cut 1 fabric and interfacing)
1/4 in elastic 14 in piece

Cut out the circle and the band.
Apply the interfacing to the band and if ironing fold in half length ways.
Cut a 2 in chunk out the middle of the back. Make sure this is at the back center of the circle.
Serge the edge of the circle. I don't have a serger so I zig zag stitch around and when you get to the missing section you just cut then you fold under and continue sewing around circle.  
To work bouffant Folds in front of puff (fold toward front).
Mark the center front.
 1. Measure 3 inches from the center on both sides, fold over the material so the right sides touch and fold back with a 1 1/2 in fold.  
 2. Measure 1 1/2 in away from last fold and create a 1 in fold toward front.
 3. Measure 1 1/2 in away from last fold and create a 1 in fold toward front.
 4. Measure 1 in away from last fold and 3/4 in fold toward front.
Repeat 1-4  on other side of middle fold.
You should have a 8 folds and the center two should be about 3 in apart.

Find the center of the band (fold in half to find center)
Pin center of band to the center of the hat (between the folds).
Pin the band along the folds of the hat. Band should end roughly about the same area as the folds end. Starting just before the band sew the band to the Circle.

I turn the hat and run a small seam to hold the folds and to keep the band down.
Turn the hat creating a in channel along the rest of the circle. Sew a seam for the elastic making sure to keep the ends open to start and finish the elastic.

Run the elastic in the channel you have made in the hat.
Sew the ends of the elastic as close to the band end as possible. Then close the channel or you will get a weir poof.

Now you have to put on the Cord stop at then end of the hat. The easiest way I have found to do this is to take a piece of yarn and thread it through the stop and then loop the yarn around the elastic and pull the yarn through pulling the elastic through at the same time.

Put a knot in the elastic to prevent loosing the stop.
Wear and enjoy. If this is not clear or you have questions please let me know
I hope this works for you this is my first tut.
80  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Moms table runner on: December 30, 2009 10:36:45 PM
Ok so every holiday or family dinner we scramble to find pot holders to put on the table and come up with a random assortment and I hate it. I have never understood the idea of a table runner till a week before Thanksgiving and then it hit me if it had descent batting in it it would essentially be one long pot holder. So I pulled out a pattern someone had gotten me and some material from my stash that matched-ish and that my mom would like (since I don't have a large table to use it on) And got to work. She loves it I did it reversible quilted each side separate and then matched them up and quilted them together. Boy that took forever and was so annoying but looks good so here it is. Hope you enjoy. Also she loved it so much she has placed orders for one for each holiday. What have I done to myself Tongue

Happy New Year Everyone!!!
