11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dragon's Keeper hood. on: June 26, 2014 07:45:33 PM
The pattern is from here : http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dragon-watchers-hood
I asked my son to model it, I'm lame at taking pictures of myself. I made it for an (adult) friend for a swap Cheesy

and flat:

Used three skeins of bulky yarn but knitted surprisingly fast.
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Juno -A cuddle doll for my 1yr old! on: June 26, 2014 10:39:50 AM
My third son turned 1. And, even if we have severals *cough cough* handmade dolls in our house, Victor didn't have his, you know.

The head is made with the euro technique of making a wool ball and using string to model the face. The nose and chin is sculpted with a needle. I knitted his body in merino baby since I couldn't find the right fabric (it had to be red!) and I had this great yarn a dear friend gave me when I was pregnant. The skin is organic cotton and he's filled with soft soft wool.

Blurry appreciation picture on his spcial day:
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Neverland pirate maps on: June 13, 2014 06:25:20 AM
Here's a little map I made for a friend of my son. He's having a pirate theme birthday Smiley

And here's the one my daugther made for herself while I was making the other:

She ditched the island idea altogether and declared our treasure chest was in the bottom of the ocean.

The fabric is flax and we used crayolas, hoping it doesn't get thrown in the wash by accident!
14  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Snowman Soaps! on: December 14, 2013 12:09:18 PM

We grated some dove bar and made soapballs.But we didn't stop there. We shaped them into snowman (and snowomans!) and decided they needed some accessorizing! Beads, buttons, bits of felt and some cedars bits.

We're keeping some for ourselves, but we put some into masson jars to offer to family.

Yule Present and a Card swap
The Swap Gallery (link to come)

The festival of Yule marks the lowest point on the Wheel of the Year. The days have been growing shorter until the night has triumphed over daylight, winter weather is truly here now, and much of the plant and animal world has died or withdrawn from view. But we greet the Winter Solstice not with gloom and dread but with celebration! It is a time of parties, feasts, family gatherings, colourful lights and decorations, music and above all, the sharing of presents. As we exchange presents with family and friends, let's also share handmade gifts among our WWP family.
(thanks Wulf for the lovely text from last year Wink )

For this swap, send your partner a handmade, gift-wrapped present to be opened on Yule (December 21st). You also need to craft a handmade card with your holiday greetings. You may also include other items (made or purchased) for your partner's children or other family members if you like, but you should discuss it with your partner first.

Some information on the Sabbat: https://www.circlesanctuary.org/index.php/celebrating-the-seasons/winter-solstice

To participate, complete this questionnaire, and PM it to the organizer, MamanTattoo. Participants must post in the swap thread at least once a week, and maintain regular communication with their partners. Sharing the package you've received with everyone else is an important part of swapping, please post photos in the Swap Gallery. If you won't be able to for some reason, be sure to let your partner know early so they can take photos before sending.

18  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Made by a 5yr old on: October 18, 2013 03:00:50 PM
Project Runway is a mother-daugther thing here and some episode ago, Mariann decided to try sketching a dress. After she was finished, I told her "Let's go shop some fabric!" and we went "shopping" in my stash, which had all the right color for this wonderfull colorblocking dress Cheesy

She built the colorblocking front piece with the serger and I decided a raglan style would better fit her drawing so she serge the sleeves to the front and then the back piece (we decided on blue at mood) I sew the casing for the elastic and put it in, she sew it and voil!!

I really love how it came out! She really did 95% of it and she's so proud!
