I have not been doing a good job of keeping up with this thread.  There is some great stuff here!

So Oct I made my nephews rocket packs for their birthdays.

And for Christmas, I made 2 of my nephews an Angry Bird set.
Blue Bird Bean Bags.

Angry Bird Hats. Black Bird and Yellow Bird.

Pigs and rocks. (Please excuse my beat-up chair)

And the obligatory receiving photo:

Thanks, pollyprissypants!

I hadn't posted the pictures of my Fall Birthday stuff or Halloween, so I thought I'd do that.


Sunflower - She was dressed in green and I made felt leaves for her shoes. Please excuse my tired, cranky model.

Pea shooter -  It's attached to a headband, but turned out a little heavy.  Plus my 2 yr old wanted nothing to do with it.  He was also dressedin green with leaves on his shoes.  Hubby and I were zombies.

Fall Birthdays:

I made part of the goody bags. The paper cones and popcorn balls were made by me (and a big hit too!)

October boys presents (there are 3 nephews with Oct. B-days)

I looked everywhere for ideas and couldn't find a single homemade fabric treasure map.  So then I just looked at maps and made up my own.

For my niece:

There were 2 different Craftster posts with tutorials for this one.  I kind of followed one, then just did what looked good, since I didn't have a large length of fabric.

For my Nov Nephew:

 A dino hood.  I also sewed him a little bag to put his trains in, but it's horrible, so no photos.  Tongue

And I was commissioned by his mom to make him a playmat:

All my own design.

I think that's all the ones I forgot to post!

Now to see if I can finish more Christmas items!!

Here are my finished Christmas presents for my Brother and his family.  They have 4 boys.
All the materials are from my stash.

Hoop for my Sister-in-law

Playmat for the kids

I wasn't there when they got them, so I don't know if they like them.  But my sisters loved the hoop and my other nieces and nephews all gathered around when I was showing off the playmat.  They seemed to like it, so hopefully, the boys do too.

Comments/constructive criticism welcome!

5  Dynamic Duo in Halloween Costumes by 2Kids2Craft4 on: November 04, 2010 07:51:39 AM
I know these are not as great as some of the entries that I've seen, but I'm really proud of them, so I wanted to enter them.
I always like to do a family theme for Halloween. First year we were Pirate (hubby) with parrot (daughter) and wench (me).  Last year we were all penguins.  I didn't really feel like I took enough time to make the costumes great, so I tried to do that this year.

My 3yr old daughter wanted to be Batman for Halloween, later it turned into Batgirl and what could her younger brother be, but Robin.

For Batgirl, I did a felt applique of the batman symbol on a thrift store t-shirt ($1!) and made the rest (except the cape) out of felt. I took felt squares and rolled them up and tacked them down for the belt. The cape was cotton fabric from my stash with another bat applique. No pattern for the cape, just made it up. The Batman symbol was one I printed from a Google image search.

She wouldn't stop making silly faces.

The cape

For Robin, I took a red shirt, cut off the sleeves and made a vest shape at the bottom. I sewed on the Robin R and vest ties which were made out of felt. I used another $1 t-shirt from the thrift store to make the sleeves, wristbands and boots. He wore his own pj bottoms for the pants. His cape was yellow cotton from my stash, no pattern.

I rushed the adult costumes, so I didn't include them.  My husband was the Joker and I was the Riddler. We carried pillowcases with money symbols for our loot bags.

And of course a picture of the Dynamic Duo together:

Sorry that it is a little fuzzy.  My camera didn't like the dark, I guess. I didn't realize it was this fuzzy until now.

Hope you like them!
