1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Max from Where the Wild Things Are on: November 08, 2012 12:05:42 PM
This Halloween I decided to make my son the cutest boy costume EVAH-- Max from Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. This is my first ever hand-made Halloween costume, and I was so pleased with how it came out. I used the pattern sold by Jess at Running with Scissors. I didn't get a lot of staged photos because, well, my boy is almost 2 and never stays still for more than 10 seconds, especially when he knows you want him to. Still, I hope you can see all the components well enough from these:

The white parts of the costume are made out of fleece. The tail is black faux rabbit fur, and the whiskers are made out of pipe cleaners. You can see that the whiskers got progressively curlier the more it was worn.  Smiley I only wish I'd gotten a better photo of the tail! Thanks for looking!

The pattern I used can be found here: http://projectsbyjess.blogspot.com/2007/01/woodland-animal-costume-sewing-pattern.html
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Ophelia's Cottage on: December 27, 2011 07:39:13 PM
I've been doing the Wee House Craftalong started by Knitckertwist, and I've fallen in love with wee houses! Here's my first completed house! It was a Christmas gift for my six-year-old step-daughter, Ophelia.

The baby is sleeping soundly in the nursery...

...while Papa relaxes in the living room...

...waiting to eat the delicious cookies Mama is baking.

And here's the little family ready to meet Ms. Ophelia!

She loves it! And the best thing about it is that we can make stuff together to add to it. I purposefully left the interior simple so she could personalize it. We have already made a little nest with eggs for the birds you see on the roof.  We also added some lady bugs and little red and white mushrooms. It's adorable, and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.  Smiley

Questions and comments are most welcome!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / iPad sleeve from old khakis (pic heavy) on: September 20, 2010 07:31:30 PM
I upcycled a pair of old khakis to make this sleeve to keep your iPad cozy. It has quilt batting to give it some cushion.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Cuddly Kindermat cover on: September 16, 2010 06:04:03 AM
I am very new to sewing (got my first machine last Christmas  Smiley ), but my cousin commissioned me to sew a cover for her son's nap mat for daycare. She gave me the link to this pattern, but I found the instructions were not very clear. I made a couple of modifications like attaching the pillowcase and adding velcro to the closure. It was a learning process, but I'm quite proud of the end result.  Smiley

The John Deere fabric is fleece and the red fabric is cotton.
