21  Recycled christmas card garland! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Jennickell on: December 02, 2010 11:31:59 AM
Well, I have been saving christmas cards for years now and I finally found a use for like 10 of the 1000 or so I have (just kidding, I did make a dent in the box of cards)

using my handy, dandy, sizzix (tree and star die's) I cut out the shapes, glued 2 back to back (prolly dont have to, I just thought it looked neater and sturdier) and then I crocheted them together with just a simple chain stitch (could just be strung on yarn or ribbon as well)

Close up of one

They are hanging on the front of my cubicle

Just a basic beanie pattern made with "I love this yarn"

25  First Quilt - The Dwarves (Punk Rock) Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Jennickell on: January 18, 2009 05:15:53 PM
First off I have to say, all of the quilts in this category make mine feel like a two year old made it. I am really not much of a sewer, seamstress, whatever, but I had this idea to make a quilt for a friend of my hubby and his wife who are expecting thier first baby. The friend plays in the the band, The Dwarves, and I had a silk screened back patch (meant for putting on a jacket) so I decided to use that as the center and they dont know what they are having (by choice, I hate it when people do that) anywho, so I hope this looks pretty gender neutral.

It measures aprox 38x38 inches, I messed up on the frame around the patch, one side is narrower than the others. It is backed with black quilt backing (and yes, my fabric store actually had black)
what do you think?

26  fabric origami shirt - not sure what exactly to use it for, but it's cute in Completed Projects by Jennickell on: January 12, 2009 08:55:44 AM
I learned how to make paper origami shirts when I was like 10, using instructions like these

I thought 'hmmm, I bet I could make them with fabric" so some playing around I came up with these:

I think this is the official size I am going to use, made from and 8.5x11 piece of fabric

I just pressed all the folds down with an iron and then I sewed just a thin seem around all the sides.

I guess they could be used as coasters.

27  easiest baby wrap/sling/carrier ever (and a really cute baby) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Jennickell on: December 26, 2008 12:56:05 PM
Christmas Eve-Eve (uh December 23) my new baby niece Lucy was born, I had lent a friend my baby sling and havent gotten it back and I really didnt want to spend a lot of money on one, not knowing if my sis would really like baby wearing like I did/do. So following some instructions I found here:
I bought 5 yards of this super cute fabric at wal-mart for only $2 a yard, I came up with this:

she really likes it, went right to sleep. she is super secure in it, I was walking around, doing dishes, picking up and she didnt move once.

28  A bushel of felt christmas flower pins & recycled christmas card boxes in Winter Holidays by Jennickell on: December 15, 2008 06:14:40 AM
So this is what I made this weekend, I used my sizzix and cut out a bunch of different flower shapes in felt, layered them together, did some really simple stitching and put a button on each one, glued a pin back on and I got these:

close up:

There are 50 here (plus I made 16 more to send to my grandma for her to give out to her friends), I am going to give one to each lady at my work.
And then, I have had this bad problem saving every christmas card I have gotten over the past few years, well I managed to dent the supply a little and I made these to put the pins into:

and a close up

29  Machine knitted baby blankets in Knitting: Completed Projects by Jennickell on: December 03, 2008 06:39:00 AM
So actually my friend did these on the knitting machine I picked up at an estate sale (for only $20), but I was about ready to throw the dam thing out the window, I am not a knitter (I am a crocheter) so I think you have to have a knitters mind set in order to use the knitting machine, anywho I digress....
So she whipped these out on Sunday, brought them to me and I put the crocheted shell border around them. They are small, perfect little reciveing blankets (or security snugglies), they are made with "i love this yarn" and are super soft. We are going to be in a craft show this weekend, we have 6 done total, here are two of the cuter ones

30  Kris and Will as Shaun and Ed complete in Halloween Costumes by Jennickell on: November 02, 2008 08:18:20 AM
OK - This is what my boys wanted to go as this year:

this really wasnt a lot of work, ordered the t-shirt on line, the hardest part was finding a cricket bat (this was the best one I could get, borrowed it from a guy from work)
