2531  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Christmas/Winter Ninni Swap; sign-ups close 11/12 at noon EST; send by 12/7 on: November 08, 2011 02:12:23 PM
Thank you Smiley I have found joining craftster has given my new found love of sewing great direction Smiley I cant wait to see where I can take the little monsters Smiley
You'll probably find that joining C-ster will take all your crafting in new directions. I have learned so many new crafts since joining this site, without even intending too. Swapping, oh my, the things I have learned! Welcome and enjoy your stay.

As for this swap, I think this is the first L&S I'll have joined for a little while. I love all your swaps, but some I just can't do or find myself getting into. But this one I MUST!

As a side note, I made a Ninni and one of those quick plushie monsters to a nephew for his 4th birthday back in August and I just learned that he is terrified of the Ninni because of the sharp tooth. Kind of sad but hilarious at the same time! His dad was the one who bought my Russ a dinosaur back on his 2nd birthday that Russ was terrified of so I think it all balances out in the end.

I don't use these things, but these are really nice! Maybe if I had one like this I would find a reason to use it. I like the first one better. It seems more like fresh fallen leaves to me. I'm gonna pin it!

After I finish this last item I get to wrap! I am so happy! I am so excited! Wrapping them is almost as fun as unwrapping them!

Yay!! I'm so excited Smiley
You should be because you should be receiving by FRIDAY! I sent today!

I love your Star Wars family! What a great job! particularly your yoda hat! I bet he'll use for a long time!
Thanks you guys! Actually, Yoda was my 2 year old little girl, Alice. One reason I didn't want to do SW was because I wasn't too fond of turning my 2yo girly girl into a 900+yo man.
2535  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Yoda Hat (lots of pics) NOW WITH TUTORIAL!! on: November 07, 2011 09:54:10 AM
I made it! Check out my Halloween post for pictures.
2536  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Another (better!) Star Wars Family on: November 07, 2011 09:51:18 AM
I don't even like Star Wars but my husband has been dreaming of this for years so we did it.
All together:


Can't get a good picture of this girl! She got the prize for best costume at the church Trunk or Treat. I made for THIS costume:
Hat - tutorial from Here. Wish I could have found blue doll eyes but alas, my HL sucks. Yoda really has blue eyes.
Robe - McCall's # M5952
Shirt and Pants under the robe - no pattern. This si the frist time I have made a shirt with sleeve using only a store bought shirt as a pattern!

Luke Skywalker:

Made for Russ:
Pants - no pattern. Very tight, slits 1/2 way up calf so they could be tight enough to fit into his boots
Boot covers - no pattern again, zip up the back, made by sewing strips of fabric onto a bigger piece and then cutting down to size. I love how these came out, even though they ended up fraying a bit once he started wearing them.
Shirt - Another McCall's pattern but I can't find it to tell you what number. It was really a karate shirt, Russ calls it his "Hiya shirt."


Can you tell Leia is 4 1/2 months pregnant?!
"Wig" - crocheted basic hat and ran long pieces of brown through it, like rug hooking with 4' pieces. Then I put it on my husband and styled it. There were some dingleberries off the buns the longer I wore it, but I really think it came out OK.
Dress - Simplicity 6777 from 1966, altered for length and a hood.
Boot covers: These sucked but they covered my shoes and made them vaguely look like white boots.

Han Solo:

His vest is my favorite part of all the costumes! I didn't use a pattern, couldn't find one, but I did find a website that has super awesome close up picture of the vest so I used an old shirt of my husbands for the basic pattern and then drew out the pockets. The pockets are awesome!
Shirt - McCall's 6953 from 1980, modified to have zipper in the back because i couldn't find stretch fabric in the right color.
Gun - He ordered the gun but it came in white and orange so he spray painted it.
Blood stripes (down side of pants) - ribbon with sharpie and safety pins.
Also, he was working really hard on making a holster and belt because he wanted to be super authentic, but the Dremel died. He will finish it someday and then I know I will be dragged to a convention somewhere. *sigh*

R2D2, our candy bucket:

Rebel Scum! Had to use a toothpick so it didn't just look like a nutsack.

Imperial logo.

And... that's it!
2537  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Rd. 7 (signups Sept. 12-Oct 1.; sendouts Dec. 1) on: November 06, 2011 06:16:07 PM
MadHatteh, I went in for surgery on my eyebrow in high school and the stupid wench couldn't get my vein, either. I ended up with a huge bruise on the inside of my elbow, another on the back of my hand where someone else had to finally take it from her and stick me, and a black eye with stitches. I used it against people when they were mean to me in the drive through at Taco Bell, making up stories about being a drug addict with an abusive boyfriend and making them feel like assholes when they got to the window. My boss didn't that, but it was really funny seeing their faces!

I finally made my first project for this swap today! It was the same thing as the second to last thing for my MYB so I set them up and did them assembly line style. Now I get to finish the last thing for that, wrap it up, and I'm all about the stocking! Heck yeah! I found like 2 yards of purple tulle the other day and not only was I thinking "Why in the hell do I have this?" but "What the hell am I going to do with it?!" DING! My partner is PurplePaisley. You think there might be some tulle involved in her stocking and/or several stuffers? I think so! Now to finish with these French knots...

ETA: I have a question for you guys! What's the word on wrapping stuffers? I always thought the purpose of having things in a stocking was to get a bunch of little stuff that doesn't require wrapping, but in the last Stocking swap I was in everyone was wrapping everything. What does everyone this round think about that? Curious I am!

2539  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday, November 4, 2011 on: November 04, 2011 08:05:31 PM
I remember when you posted your son's first spin, from pencil roving. I am loving the red and orange, though I don't think I would like them as much plied together.

Here's my offering, meant to post it a week or 2 ago. Oops! Some of that stuff I was given (that I still don't know what to do with the rest of it) there was some roving that I carded and spun worsted and I think I made it 2 ply with itself but I can't think with these buttheads talking nerdy behind me. They would be mad if I just told them to shove it. BAH!

Today I got to do a lot of stalking on my partner and wow! I think I like her. I got to know her pretty well so when we went out tonight I saw tons of stuff for her ball and spent more money than I probably should have. Problem: I don't think it will all fit in the ball! Or even around it in a box! Oh noes! Maybe I'll have to save it for my kids OR just wait and see if I get ZQ as a partner again somewhere in the future.
