3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Bowser Halloween Costume on: November 08, 2012 11:18:34 AM
For Halloween this year I made my son a "Bowser" costume.  I used a pattern for the body with my own embellishments and created the head and shell from scratch.  Everything is made from fleece and stuffing.  The costume took about 2 weeks off and on to work on.  I made the shell a kind of backpack so he could take it off and ride in the car without difficulties.  He specifically asked for the mouth to be open so it looked like he was being eaten Grin

Oh my gosh that is so stinkin' awesome! So going to try this. Do you have any tips?

it is VERY sticky!  if it starts falling apart, put it in the fridge to cool down.  also, the rolling pin wasn't working very well, so i stretched it out by hand.  if you do use a rolling pin, grease it!

My son wanted a dragon pillow pet.  I needed a new project, so i decided to make him one  Grin  i couldn't find a dragon pattern (for the head) so i made one up - which i have never done before.  i just started sewing from patterns a few months ago!  he picked out the colors and material (its really soft - i think the same material that 'real' pillow pets are made of).

its not perfect, its a bit goofy looking - but my son loves it!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / bottle cap wreath on: January 07, 2011 07:27:53 PM
I made this wreath for my mom.  my inspiration was from this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=282109.0

i couldn't find anyone who could help me cut wood, so i decided to make a wreath.  the white behind it is fleece that i cut in strips and tied into the backing to hide the back.  i was going to cut it back but decided that i really liked it showing through to the front.

I used this recipe http://asouthernfairytale.com/2010/07/21/easy-no-bake-petit-fours/ to make these yummy treats.  it was fairly easy - but very sticky.  and since it was my first time with fondant i learned a lot!  i made 48 covered cakesters for a work exchange.

i made 3 different designs.  the stars and hearts are made with cookie cutters.  and oh goodness, they were yummy!
