1  Invitations for 2 Year Old's Birthday Party in Party Planning by sugarpouf on: April 04, 2009 02:55:28 PM
I decided to make some invitations this year for my daughter's 2nd birthday.  I sewed on some fabric scraps to cute paper and then glued them to pre-cut blank invitations I got on sale at Michael's.  I think they turned out cute.  Here's one of them:

There are some other fabric and paper combinations here on my blog:http://sugarbiscuit.blogspot.com/2009/04/invitations.html.

Thanks for looking!

PS She's going to be 2 on April 7th, and the worm the bird is holding is a "2" in case you can't tell.

Here's the pattern if anyone wants to make one.  You can see there are some daisies at the bottom that did not make it onto my finished piece.  The main reason is that I cut my fabric too small, but in the end I thought it was okay that they were not there.  I just traced this onto my fabric with a water soluble pen.  I'm too new to embroidery to know the other methods yet.

Enjoy! and please post photos if you use this pattern, I'd love to see other color combos, etc...

Here's a link to the image on flickr, it seems a little clearer there: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3598/3285561886_c1e371287d_b.jpg

3  1st project: Alphabet Sampler, now with Transfer Pattern! in Needlework: Completed Projects by sugarpouf on: February 11, 2009 02:27:02 PM

Yea!  I think I like embroidery after all.  This is my first completed project (besides just little doodles learning the basic stitches).

Now, what am I supposed to do with this?  It's about the size of a regular sheet of paper on natural muslin.  Any ideas?

4  New hat for the lil blue-eyed monkey! in Crochet: Completed Projects by sugarpouf on: October 19, 2008 09:41:56 PM
I made my 19 month old daughter a new hat.  Cute, huh?  I have a hard time resisting blue because her eyes are so blue;  it does create issues with people thinking she's a boy, but I don't mind.

Sorry that one's sideways.  I was in a hurry when I posted it on my blog (I had roughly 17 seconds of free time) and haven't had a strong enough desire to fix it yet.  Tongue

Oh, that's her hat from last year laying there on the floor, after the puppies chewed off the pom-pom.

5  Dress from Vintage Pattern in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by sugarpouf on: October 15, 2008 10:02:02 AM
My MIL gave in and let me take a huge stack of her vintage baby dress patterns, ranging from the 1940's to the 70's, collected from various family members over the years.  It spurred my obsession with vintage patterns, and I also purchased a lot on ebay.  This dress I made for a friend's wedding.  I found the fabric at Joann's (Tracy Porter), and it was selected to match the cutest little orange squeaker mary janes.

I really need to dress her back up and get a better picture.  The photographer at the wedding did get a couple of really nice shots which I have ordered, but they are not here yet.  For now, this is the only shot I have.

I'm sending you to my blog to see the pictures because I am at work right now (shhh...don't tell anyone) and have a limited time to post this.  Enjoy:

Okay, I got a minute to grab the URL of the pictures off my blog:

I received from DesignVigilante on Thursday but am just now getting to post...busy life with work, baby, and visiting in-laws.  Lips sealed

Anyhow, I think the scarf is totally awesome, it's done in tunisian crochet, something I've always wanted to try, especially since I can't seem to catch on to knitting! 

Here's a picture of the whole loot (scarf, yarn, vanilla candle, and crocheted candy dish complete with candy):

A closeup of the scarf (Sorry, it's a little burry):

And modeled by one of my silly sidekicks (he's been watching ANTM with me so he's got the squinty model look down!):

I'm going to go ahead and post a couple of pics of the scarf I sent to DesignVigilante.  I guess she's down near all the fires and maybe cannot post them herself.  She received a couple of days ago, so I'm not spoiling any suprises here.

It's made from a soft wool suiting and a lightweight jersey:

9  Multi-colored hat with "ribbing" in Crochet: Completed Projects by sugarpouf on: January 12, 2005 12:05:35 PM
Here's my latest crocheted hat.  My husband says he doesn't like it but all the girl-friends do.  Something about the color.  I crocheted concentric rings (i.e. I turned at the end of each row).  There is a "seam" but I've gotten really good at hiding them, your average non-crocheter can't find it!   I used a woven stitch, which is *half double chain, chain one* repeated for a row, then * hdc in each chain, chain one* for the next row.  When I got to the last three rows, I continued the pattern but in the back loop only so there is a "ribbing".

Here's the hat on:

Here's the hat off so you can see the stiches a little better:

What do you think?

Here's my version of the flower hat.  People have stopped me on the street to ask where I got this hat; when they hear I made it they always ask if they can buy one...if I could just quit my job and make hats for a living...that'd be the life!  Thanks for the idea beppycat!
