1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / A Welder for Christmas?!?! on: November 09, 2010 01:07:34 PM
My DH finally told me what he wanted for Christmas.. A Welder! I had to turn my head away so he couldn't see the excitement on my face.. all these craft ideas and projects started flying through my head!! I couldn't believe my hubby asked for a present that I would love to have and will probably use more than him.

So, I started looking at the stores... and I quickly realized that I was in over my head. MIG, TIG, Spot, Arc welders..... so many to choose from?!? Which one do I choose???

Well, my question is Which one do I buy that will work for my husband (who has only welded a few times and will be using it for odds and ends) and for me. I will love to be able to use it to make jewelry and maybe some yard decorations.

Please help.. Thank you!!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Baby Fish Costume on: November 01, 2010 09:49:45 PM
This is my little boys first Halloween, and since he is only a month old I really couldn't find a costume I liked for him that fit so I made this one for him. He is a little fish and my husband dressed up like a fisherman!

I took a onesie and sewed on the fish scales and then added some scrap fabric around his sleeves for his fins.  The fish head hat was a last minute thing. But I think it turned out ok. I took a hat that was laying around and covered it with fabric and put some felt eyes and a mouth on there.

He was trying to swim I think! He loved trying to eat his fins.. lol
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Baby Blocks on: July 11, 2010 02:46:14 PM
So this is my first project that I have embroidered. I watched some videos on youtube to help me learn different stitches and this is what I ended up with. I know there are a few mistakes but I think it looks good!

Oh yeah.. these blocks are for my friend who is having a little girl in Nov. I hope she likes these!!

This bunny on here drove me crazy!! I took me forever to figure out how to fill her face and body up with thread.. ugh.. but I finally figured something out..

I think the cupcake is my fav. so far!  Cheesy

Let me know what ya'll think! Thanks!!
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Help! Cloth Diapers... on: May 07, 2010 12:30:22 PM
I just sewed one cloth diaper and needless to say it did not turn out so great! Can someone please help me and explain how to sew the elastic where the leg holes are. I put all the fabric together inside out then I sewed around the outside of the fabric leaving a hole to turn it right side out. Then I took the elastic and sewed it on the fabric that was on the outside of the stitch where the legs go, I did stretch the elastic so the fabric would bunch. But after I turned the fabric right side out and then sewed around the edge the elastic looked all crazy. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Reversible Apron on: January 02, 2010 11:57:02 AM
I made this apron without a pattern, but I am pleased how it turned out. It is reversible and has nice ribbon as the straps. 

Thanks for looking!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sewing thread holder on: January 01, 2010 05:44:41 PM
I was in need of a place to put my sewing thread and I had some extra wood, so I decided to make this!  I am really happy how it turned out. I was a little worried that the thread would not fit right, but I guess my math was right after all!!  Cheesy

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Gold Journal on: December 29, 2009 07:59:20 PM

This is my first time posting one of my projects, so feedback would be appreciated.

I made this gold journal for my Nannies b-day, hope she loves it!

The paper on the inside is computer paper and has a ink pen stamp on every page. I made the stamp out of a potato. (making a potato stamp was just as fun and making the journal) I then took a old crayon and made a ink mark coming out of the ink pen. The hard part of the cover is made from cardboard I found. I covered the journal with some material I found a scrap store and then put a gold metal object on the front I found at the scrap store to.

I had a fun time making this journal and I am already planning on making more!!

Thanks for looking!

8  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Jacksonville and surrounding areas on: December 29, 2009 07:19:13 PM
I was wondering if anyone knew of a store where I can buy cheap recycled stuff. There is a good one in Durham, but I am hoping to find on a little closer to home.
