11  Crochet Wire Necklaces :) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Dawl on: April 27, 2011 04:21:48 PM
Ok, I saw these a little while ago and HAD to make them...they are soooo pretty ! I was amazed at how easy they are to do and how stunning they look when finished.

First up is a wide variety of glass beads...all shapes, sizes, and colors. I think it looks great with the randomness it has.

Next is the one I did on black artists wire using pink and gray dyed fresh water pearls. I'm in love with this one, big time.

I just did a basic single chain crochet 3 times then braided the crocheted strands together Smiley Easy Peasy !!

Next up is from Lindy Smiley She sent me this completely awesome mermaid hoop !! Ooooh Monica....be honest, exactly how long did it take you to click the pin button when you saw this ? LOL I adore it and she too, is now on my wall with the other hooplas Smiley She also sent me some neat fabrics and ribbon....oooh now I just need to decide what to make with it all Smiley Thank you Lindy...you're a sweetheart and I love it all !

Last, but certainly not least is from YumJello !! ZOMG ! ( i never say ZOMG, but I thought this package deserved the added emphasis with the Z ) She claimed me for some fabric and leathaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ! WOW !!! She sent me a TON of stuff ! An awesome hide with a croc finish....I just keep smelling it, I love the smell of leather, have no idea what to make with it yet....hmmmm, a flogger perhaps ? Or something more mainstream ? ! Ooh I know, maybe a purse ! Anyway...this is a huge pile of fabrics, I couldn't even get them all in the pic. the leather hide is on the lower left....it's gorgeous Smiley Thanks sooooo much YumJello !

Thanks again everyone and I'm so sorry I've been such a horrible swapper this round !

Ok, these were just too awesome not to share LOL These are the 6 prints I came home with today. Also got 3 yards of denim and 3 yards of basic black Smiley

The skully fabric in this shot is for DGD #1 - her "Easter Outfit" - meaning I'm making each of them a summer shirt and either skirt or shirts and giving it to them for Easter ( along with 10 pounds of chocolate lol ) - yeah, this so isn't going to be her church outfit for Easter Sunday LOL

Yeah it's ok, you can ooooh and ahhh over these two, I did !! DH found them and showed them to me ( silly man ) he had to know they were going home with me !! Dunno what I'm doing with them yet, heck I might just hoard them just so I can take them out and look at them now and then lol

Fabric on the left - tropical w/ dolphins is for DGD #2 for her Easter outfit. She takes after me, she's a dolphin lover so she'll LOVE an outfit with this fabric.

17  Some New Pendants :) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Dawl on: April 17, 2011 10:21:55 AM
Just a few new pendants I pulled out of the kiln this morning !

Up first is : "Quod Me Nutrit, Me Destruit" - That which nourishes me, also destroys me. Love this pendant, I think the blue streaky glass looks so nice.

Next we have a 3 tone blue pendant with a pretty spring flower fused into the glass

Pink & Purple Sunset Smiley The calm before the storm

Kanji "Love" symbol - Earrings and pendant to match. Use dichroic clear glass on this one, it really gives the pieces a holographic, 3 dimensional look.

Close up so you can see the depth better

Hope you like them as much as I do. I almost hate when they come out so "just like I pictured" LOL It makes it hard to part with them !

Atsuko claimed me for a mystery box of fabric !! oooooh did she deliver Smiley I love it, and my DGD #3 put her stamp of approval on each cut as it came out of the box by declaring "oooooooooooooooooooooooh, it's sooooooooo pretty"

Thanks Rox ! We love it Smiley and will be making a few cute summer dresses out of part of it you can be sure. Morgan sort of claimed her faves immediately lol

19  Sewing w/ the Grandkids !! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Dawl on: April 10, 2011 07:55:07 AM
Had all 4 grandkids yesterday ( 7, 5, 2, & 2 ) it was a joy to try and sew with them LOL ( insert sarcasm here )

They all wanted shirts...except DGD #3 she wanted an entire outfit !

We got 2 of the 4 done and will do the other 2 today if my nerves and patience holds on long enough Smiley

First up is DGD #3 and her outfit.

The shirt - tshirt pattern, did rolled hem on the sleeves and the ruffles on the bottom. Giraffe applique using the same giraffe fabric as the sleeves and ruffles.

The pants - took a pair of DH's pants that didn't fit and just used the legs to cut the pattern that I made from another pair of her pants. Added the giraffe ruffles at the hem.

She's freshly potty trained so rather than mess around with zippers and buttons on the pants I just did them pull up to make bathroom runs easier for her Smiley

Next is DGD #1 - same tshirt pattern and methods, just different fabrics.

Modeling shot - I did a size 8 for her, but next time will definitely go with the 9. She's built real solid and beefy, I hate this this just "looks" small even though it's really not tight.

They had both just gotten out of bed, I made them model before they ran off and got their clothes dirty LOL

Please excuse the messy sewing/craft room. We were creating...not cleaning Smiley

20  Embroidered Horse Shirt in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Dawl on: April 09, 2011 10:19:39 AM
I did this shirt last night for a personal swap I'm doing with KaoticKrafter, this is for her daughter. Used a basic t'shirt pattern I bought on Etsy. Size 5 - rolled hem on the sleeves and then I thought the length was just a tad short so I took an old adult t'shirt and used the bottom of it for a ruffle and neck on this one. Machine embroidered horse..and yeah I tried to put a tag in it, but well, I sort of put it in upside down so I just cut it out LOL
