1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Yummy Stripes Nap Quilt and Question... on: February 22, 2011 10:20:08 AM
Hi everyone!  I just made this lap/nap quilt top for my daughter with my new serger.  So quick!  The longest part was cutting the strips.  Smiley  My question is, for a simple quilt without batting and not much top-stitching, what do you suggest for a backing?  Flannel?  Fleece?  Etc?  Opinions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

(The colors are more tropical in real life, not so dark.)
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Infant Fuzzy Un-sweatshirt on: January 16, 2011 03:43:22 PM
Hi everyone!  I made this for my lil one (4 months old) during her nap today with my new serger (yay).  It's made from a super soft, fluzzy fleece (that shed like crazy when cut).  I didn't use a pattern, but just copied a sweatshirt she already had.  I can't wait to try it on her!  Let me know what you think!  Smiley

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddler dress on: January 24, 2010 04:53:34 PM
Hi!  I made this for my sweetie during her naptime today.  I would've liked the skirt to be twirlier, but I think it's okay for my first try.  Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Owlie toddler skirt set on: January 24, 2010 04:49:44 PM
Hi!  I made this skirt and tee set for my 20-month old.  I used the cutest owl print by Amy Schimler.  The skirt has an elastic waste and the length goes just below her knees.  The t-shirt has a little matching applique.  My little one is always on the go!  These pics were the least blurry, so hopefully, you can get the idea...  Smiley

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Pint-size calorimetry on: September 27, 2009 01:09:01 PM
Hiya craftsters!  Just thought I would post what I knitted during my daughter's nap today: a pint-size calorimetry.  I was going to make a full size one for me (tute at http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html), but my needles were too short to cast on 120 stitches, so I decided to make a mini version with about half the stitches. I think it's a bit small for her, but I'm hoping it'll fit one of her friend's perfectly.  It was much easier than I thought it was going to be and it is also an instant gratification project (i loooove those!).  C & C welcome!  Grin
Thanks for looking!

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Boxy Pouch on: May 16, 2009 04:33:23 PM
Thanks to this awesome site (http://threebears.wordpress.com/2007/10/15/little-boxy-pouch-tutorial/), I made this tonight.  The directions were very clear and it didn't take long at all to whip one of these bad boys out.  (It's about 3 inches tall and maybe 5 inches wide, 2 inches deep.)

Craft on, my friends!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Wood-Handle Jordy on: March 09, 2008 11:20:11 AM
Hi friends!  Inspired by warmer weather and a lot of sunshine, here's what I made this morning.  It's a Jordy bag with wooden handles that is just the right size for daily use.  I think I should've painted the handles first, but I was too impatient!  Smiley  It doesn't have interfacing in it, so it's a bit droopy if you set it down.  Oh well, I like it and the colors make me smile! 

Comments appreciated!  Have a great day!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Stomach bug get well gift... on: January 21, 2007 08:45:58 AM
As a lot of us know, there's an awful stomach bug going from coast to coast across the US of A.  My friend has just caught it and I want to do something nice for her.  I was thinking of getting a basket and putting some saltine crackers, ginger ale, and a magazine in it.  Does anyone have any ideas of something small and quick that I could make to cheer her up?  Thanks gals-n-guys!
Craft on!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Aw yeah... Beadorific! on: September 17, 2006 01:17:55 PM
I love multi-strand seed bead bracelets!  At first, I thought I'd break down and buy one, but then (after checking my bank account) I decided to come up with one of my own.  There are transparent, opaque, matte, and glossy beads that all catch and manipulate the light in a cool way.  What do you think?

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Revamped necklace into SNAZZY earrings on: September 17, 2006 01:12:56 PM
I found these rectangles as part of a necklace.  I thought they'd look better as chandelier-like earrings.  Altho being a bit on the heavier side, I still dig 'em.  Any compliments would be appreciated!   Wink
