883  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: dalek shirt on: January 06, 2011 05:29:59 PM
well i googled the image, printed it out on my printer, then traced over it with freezer paper. I used a spray fabric paint from Micheals' which cost about $10 for the bottle which isn't that big. Sad  Still, it goes a long way, so it's okay. I ironed it down really well, then placed it on the floor and sprayed from about a foot away. It turns out it's REALLY important not to get too close when you spray, because it will find a way to bleed under the stencil. It's better to do two light coats, which my impatience taught me the hard way. Thanks for the compliments!
884  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: looooong touque on: January 06, 2011 05:12:25 PM

this is not the pattern i used, but i can't FIND the pattern i used. This will do okay, I think - I used a regular length pattern like this, and extended it, doing four or five 'straight' rows for every decrease (or increase if you use this pattern). I also did not do a spiral, I did row by row .... but I made very sure that the brim was the size I wanted. I'll keep searching to see if I can find the original, but no promises. Sad

for those who knit, I found this

thanks! and I thought the colors were horribly ugly - but she liked them, so all good. I'll find the pattern, but I know I modified it to put more rows in to make it longer
886  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / gift box and ornaments on: January 06, 2011 10:03:24 AM
each year I try to make christmas ornaments for my parents, my inlaws, and us. Last year was crocheted bells, which I'd rather not attempt again. This year was cheap wood ornaments from the dollar store, paint, new ribbon (organza), and sparklies.  The box was another dollar store find, that I painted with a white background, then painted a stylized Flash symbol on it for the husband.

good old freezer paper stencil. of course by the time i'd gotten the boy to stand still, he was dirty. Dirt just loves him, I guess.

888  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / wooden puzzles on: January 06, 2011 09:57:40 AM
about eight years ago, my mom made these puzzles, which my daughter (who was about three) proceeded to color with crayon over all the painstaking painting I had done. I was so discouraged, I put them away in a box. This year, our son is three and a half, so I dug them out, repainted and SEALED them with acrylic sealer. It makes all the difference.
889  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / WoW druid in bear form, Tanza's pattern on: January 06, 2011 09:55:39 AM
I give you Mazzik, my husbands' druid in bear form. Cutified, because they don't get this squee on WoW. I made it from a felt blanket, which was the right color and the WORST thing I have ever sewed with. The felt didn't 'stick' together with any sort of real integrity, which made it disintigrate if you pulled too hard or lightly abused the fabric. The pattern was sent to me from Tanza, which was a relief, because I was going MAD trying to find something that looked 'bear' not 'teddy'. So, a huge thank you to Tanza, you are an angel!!

890  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / home brewery sign on: January 06, 2011 09:50:45 AM
my husband is starting a brewery in the basement, and I decided that he needed to have a sign to commemorate the occasion. This was made for Christmas.
