1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Parent/Child ATC Swap? Are we even allowed to let our kids swap with us? on: March 08, 2009 06:12:50 PM
So I'm way into ATCs now, and so are my daughters. They did their own children's ATC swap a few weeks back organized by a blogger, but I'm dying to do a swap in which kids and their parents (or aunties, or uncles, or adult cousins, or family friends--whatever) each make an ATC to send to another adult/child pair.

Are we even allowed to have a kid participate in a swap with their parent?

Does anyone else who likes ATCs have, or know, a child?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Family-Wide Critter Caps (Do We Dare All Leave the House at the Same Time?) on: February 02, 2009 05:59:45 AM
So I made up this little hat with ears for my younger daughter:

And then I obviously made up another one for my older daughter.

But then I was all, "Hey! I want one of those!"

And then my husband took one look at mine, and he was all, "Hey, I want one of those!"

So now we're one of THOSE families--you know, one of the ones that matches:

I'm thinking of having a rule that we can't all wear our hats at the same time, but Matt says, "If you're on the same team, you gotta wear the same uniform." What do you think?

P.S. Momma and baby hats are sewn from stash faux fur. The Daddy hat is from an old wool sweater (unfelted).
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / fire! fire! fire! on: May 02, 2007 03:03:23 PM
So let's say that you make reclaimed crayons using a cute little plastic ice cube tray with heart shapes in it. And let's say that you do this project in the oven, because the plastic ice cube tray is totally fine as long as you keep the oven temp to 200 degrees or less. Totally fine, yes, totally fine.

However, do not turn off the oven and then leave the plastic ice cube tray with half-melted crayons in it, thinking, "Ha! I'll save energy by letting the crayons melt as the oven cools down! I am so eco!" Don't do this, because you will forget about the ice cube tray. The next day, you will make sugar cookies with your toddler. You will preheat the oven. Later, as you're rolling out the dough, you will hear a bang and acrid smoke will begin to pour from the oven throughout the house. You'll have to wake the baby from her nap, flee outside with everyone, and sit in the yard while you call your husband on the cell and explain that he has to come home from work because the oven is on fire and if you have to breathe acrid smoke it will probably contaminate your breastmilk.

I really had a hankering for sugar cookies, too.
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / turning classic nintendo screenshot into cross stitch pattern? on: April 27, 2005 07:47:56 AM
I want to cross stitch this entire Super Mario Bros. scene:

Some super smarties posted how they substituted one x for one pixel when doing classic nintendo patterns, but I haven't seen anybody who's doing an entire screenshot yet. Is this because if they did, the finished product would be like 10 feet wide?
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Sew & Go Baby romper pattern plundered! on: April 22, 2005 07:27:19 PM
Sew & Go Baby has this awesome pattern for turning hideous adult sweaters (my mother gave my husband a beige sweater with a big old deer appliqued on the front--um, thanks, mom) into excellent baby-sized rompers.

The problem? Some evil sewster stole the torso pattern piece from my library's copy of the book! So I can make the sleeves of the romper, and I can make the hood of the romper, but I can't actually make the romp of the romper!

Could someone puhleeze help me? This beige sweater is burning a hole in my eyes! Maybe you could suggest other recycled sweater romper patterns, or scan and post a romper torso from your own blissfully unplundered Sew & Go Baby, etc.
