1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 58 ENTRIES / Hello Kitty Gingerbread House on: January 08, 2011 10:20:20 AM
Inspired by the recent Hello Kitty and Friends swap I decided to go with a HK themed house this year. It's become a tradition to go along with my friend to her mother in-law who is quite the Gingerbread House Queen. We make a day of it and everyone makes their own houses- such fun! The house is completely edible apart from Hello Kitty and includes sugar windows and a light.

Roof detail- bubble gum tape roof(that made the house really smell like candy) with twizzler accents, Hello Kitty-esque flower candies on the top of the roof, nerd rope on the sides of the roof, sprees on the bottom edge of the roof and Haribo Brixx candy chimney

2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Sackboy on: November 07, 2010 07:54:38 AM
Sackboy and crafting mama at the halloween party.
We don't usually dress up for Halloween but this year my husband decided he wanted to dress up as Sackboy from Little Big Planet. I loosely followed the directions on makeasackboy.com.
I started off with a laundry basket to make the frame of the head and cut out a giant smile

I then covered the laundry basket in bubble wrap and then covered that in burlap (very itchy to work with!). I did some sewing and glue gunning to keep everything together. The eyes are made of pleather.
I made big fake stitches using yarn and covered the mouth with some chiffon.

My husband made the zipper on a brown shirt using duct tape and cardboard.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Train art bag on: July 31, 2010 11:53:10 AM
I followed the tutorial on this blog http://fromanigloo.blogspot.com/2010/02/art-bag-tutorial.html to make an on-the-go art bag for my friend's four yr old who loves trains.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Toddler panda bag on: July 31, 2010 11:38:16 AM
I sewed this bag up quickly for my little 2 year old friend who loves pandas. Inside the bag was a panda stuffy, panda cookies, a blackberry (just like her moms) and a panda bracelet I made.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Large shopping bag on: April 15, 2010 03:40:16 PM
I bought a sham at crate and barrel outlet for $1 and liked the colors. I changed it into a large shopping bag. I use it when shopping at costco and it holds a lot! It's already quilted so I just added a lining (off cuts from a king duvet cover that I also got at C&B outlet and resized to fit a queen).

Does anyone have any tips on how to sew a square bottom on to bags with 4 sides, if you know what I mean? I've done a few bags like this and it's always stressful hoping that everything will line up.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / SewNews Weekender Tote on: April 15, 2010 12:00:30 PM
The weekender tote on the cover of the Feb/March 2010 SewNews magazine caught my eye. I was wondering if anyone has tried to make this and has any tips? I noticed many negative comments on their website.
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Marimekko fabric on: March 17, 2010 04:19:45 PM
I found these beautiful Marimekko fabrics at a Crate and Barrel outlet close to where I live. The best part was that they have a scratch bin of remnants that they sell for $1/lb! I'm not sure what to do with them. Any ideas? The pieces are on average 20inch squares, though some are bigger.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Doggy stroller bag on: March 14, 2010 04:38:45 PM
I made this bag for my dog crazy friend. It can hang on the back of her baby's stroller and works pretty well as she has fast access to her wallet, keys and other baby essentials. I was so excited to find a cute doggy feltie that matched the fabric so perfectly!
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Kawaii handbag on: March 11, 2010 08:36:29 AM
I love cute Japanese fabrics. I have quite a stash from when I lived in Japan for a couple of years but I'm still really stingy with using my precious fabrics. I found this cute pattern for a patchwork style bag and thought it would be a good way to use some of my stash.

Decorative stitching between each panel. This is a Kokka fabric. I love these cute frogs by Kokka and the smiley apples by Decolello!
The lining.
10  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 46 ENTRIES / Where the muffin man lives! on: January 03, 2010 03:26:00 PM
Do you know the muffin man?
I made this with the help of my friend's mom who is quite the gingerbread house queen. I'm new to America so the tradition of gingerbread house making is new to me. It was so much fun and I'm looking forward to making it an annual holiday tradition.

Front of the house with peeps snow man, frosted upturned ice cream cone, nerd rope door frame and candy cane pathway.

Chimney made of peppermint rock candy.

Roof made of Nutter butters and topped with Hershey's candy cane kisses.

The light! Love the gingerbread house smell that you get after having the light on for a little while.
