1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / tiny tulip pockets - Spring & Easter on: March 31, 2011 04:01:58 PM
Lately my craft time has been filled with lots of small projects for family Easter baskets - fuzzy rabbits, giant crocheted flowers, pillowy lambs, etc. I wanted to make some pretty trinkets for my teenaged and twenty-something cousins, as well as for the young children of the family, and this project is one of the results:

These tiny tulips can hold small pieces of candy, maybe a message, or just be pretty adornments. Make into:
-little magnets for kitchen or cubicle
-hair pin or headband embellishment
-flower wand/baton

A sweet little project for spring / Easter - tutorial at my blog, http://perchesinthesoul.wordpress.com/2011/03/31/tiny-tulip-pockets/

Great work - I love your son's pink ruffly shirt w/yellow vest! Perfect colors for the era.

Your garb looks wonderful, kudos on all the handsewing. And you're so lucky to get to wear it to Kentwell!! While I was making my garb this spring, I stared at Kentwell videos on youtube for AGES, trying to make sure I understood the variety of colors and styles the working class wore.

I love the blue Marie Antionette dress! That ruffle work looks amazing.

I played on cast at a RenFaire this year, and made a costume for my toddler - just a simple smock, which is what kids in that era wore until they were 5 or 6, along with loose pants and sandals. I made a simple tutorial on how to make a child's smock - you can see it here http://perchesinthesoul.wordpress.com/2010/06/01/renaissance-smock-for-child/. And since your boy sounds a bit older than mine, he could just wear brown/khaki pants under his smock.

Hope that helps Smiley

How about a Green Giant costume? Your toddler could wear green long sleeves, tights/pants, gloves, and hat. Just make the big green 'leaf' part of the costume to go over the rest of it. I think in the old commercials the Green Giant used to have a tiny sidekick named pod or sprout or something like that. Could be a cute combo with a baby peapod costume.
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Portrait + Hearts garland on: February 13, 2010 02:40:58 PM
Inspired by Elsie's DIY Celebrity Valentines(1), I decided to make something personal and pretty to hang on the wall for Valentines.

I selected family photos with good face shots & cropped them to focus on the head/neck. Then I traced each photo with a black fabric markers (I use the Crayola markers - you can find them in the aisle with children's crayons & markers), ironed the fabric to set the ink, cut and hemmed them into mini portraits.

For the rest of the garland, I cut a small pile of hearts from two 8.5/11" sheets of felt (pink and red).

Attatch the portraits with a teeny stitch in each top corner. For the portrait hearts, I used a simple blanket stitch to attach a larger heart behind the main heart, both for color and to give it more stability while holding the "portrait." Sew all the hearts together with a needle &amp; some cranberry-colored embroidery floss and <em>voila</em>! Art on the wall for now, family memorabilia for later.
