51  sunshine dishcloth (Now with Tutorial!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by kstaron on: November 20, 2008 01:35:32 PM
I attempted a standard dishcloth by starting with three stitches and adding 2 each row. Then I ran out of yarn.  It wasn't until I took it off the needles that I realized it looked like a sunset. So It's my little sunshine dishcloth that makes me smile every time I go into the kitchen.

52  journal making for the holidays: WoW and Steampunk to Meditation in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by kstaron on: November 20, 2008 01:28:33 PM
I've made a slew of handbound journals for gifts:
A meditation journal, birding notebook, and a list notebook, all personalized:

A horror theme recipe book using the tutorial found here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=273316.0

The birding notebook used graph paper and the others used lined

A steampunk journal for me and a World of warcraft one for my DH. He routinely plays a gnome so I went with an engineering type theme. The images are all hand drawn on, since my transfer method bombed. I really like the corset octopus one since I did that freehand all the way trying to combine to victorian elements

I also made a couple of pens for the steampunk ones from these cool little gadgety type pens that look like links and open up to be pens. Original the pens were pink and green:

53  shirt to toddler dress recon in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by kstaron on: November 20, 2008 01:12:49 PM
I used the tutorial for changing a man's dress shirt to a toddler dress. I used a woman sleeveless shirt so I took the collar and used that as the sleeves.

Here is some of the detail. I used a wide lattice ribbon for trim.

(I really like the pattern on the shirt. If it had been big enough It would have been mine.)

54  Clutch of dragon stuffed toys in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by kstaron on: November 20, 2008 01:03:09 PM
For the holiday I made all the little girls in the family dragons. I used the basic pattern here: http://www.wyrm.org.uk/cuddly/beanbag.pdf

Some don't have sspines 'cause the bulk would have broke my machine.

Half of them I used two fabrics for  a different effect.

I embroidered little eyes onto them too

What do you think?

55  Re: Witch/Wicca/Pagan Swap Round 8 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by kstaron on: November 14, 2008 10:43:03 AM
YAY! I received my angel package from Saturn.

The whole kit and kaboodle. (Nearly had to chase down the little one to get these shots, she ran off with the keyring, but she's a sweetie and brought it back after a few laps around the house.)

A close up of one of the kid friendly greenman cups of the seasons.

The box with a tree goddess painting inside. Isn't Saturn talented?!  My prayer beads are going into this.

A close up of the shell cauldron and the sea wand.  They're so beautiful. I love each little detail. (And already up on my altar)

A bonus druid keychain already attached to my laptop bag.

She even put in a coloring book for my dear daughter.

And (giggle) a Samhain present: a hand held stitcher. I'm beginning to think of all the places I can sew now.  Grin

Thank you so much Saturn!! It's all just so amazingly wonderful.

56  birthday dress and booties - semi-reconstructed goodness in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by kstaron on: October 02, 2008 06:29:54 PM
I made this dress for my daughter's first birthday, but gave it to her a couple days early to wear to my cousin's wedding.  I used two fat quarters for the actual dress and them pant legs of an outfit she outgrew for the sleeves and waistband.  I gathered some ribbon around a cute flower button I had lying around and trimmed the hem with green and pink ribbon to match.

Then I realized she had no pink shoes for the occasion and whipped up a pair of booties (I think they were called Chinese baby slippers) from scraps of a pink wool sweater I had felted ages ago.

I'm just so happy how well they turned out. I don't make alot for her since her MIL goes a bit nuts buying for her, she's got more clothes than the rest of the family combined. Smiley  But I'm really glad I did this. She was the hit of the wedding, after the bride of course.

57  autumn dress for a poppet named Autumn in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by kstaron on: October 02, 2008 06:23:30 PM
When I made my first poppet this is the outfit I had originally envisioned, but not being one to keep alot of floral stems around, I only got around to it just in time for the equinox.

58  onesie to toddler purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kstaron on: October 02, 2008 06:16:17 PM
I made this purse for my daughters first birthday.

I took a onesie that my baby out grew and refashioned it into a purse so I could keep the cute details that are a hallmark of baby clothes everywhere.

I used a sleeve from another onesie to make it complete with a pocket that can hide a pacifier. (She never uses it as a pacifier, just chews on it when teething so handy to have around.)

She loves carting it around and seeing whats inside.

59  stuffed animal into a nutty puppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by kstaron on: October 02, 2008 06:12:36 PM
I found this cool squirrel stuffed animal at a thrift store. From the tag it looked like something someone would win at a fair.  I ripped the bottom seam and unstuffed him, then added a hand shaped liner from and old shirt to make him a puppet.

(There's not that much difference between the stuffed and puppet version, just less  poufy.)

60  neon food coloring + embriodery floss = pastel cuteness in Dyeing: Completed Projects by kstaron on: October 02, 2008 06:09:52 PM
I made this to embroider a bag for a swap intending the colors to be a green and brown but the neon food coloring made it act strange and instead I got a pastel yellow and a deep pink.

I think it turned out better than my original idea.
