11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Blastoise used craft attack! It's super effective! on: October 31, 2011 04:02:57 PM
Blastoise used body slam. Enemy Pikachu has fainted!

My husband decided he wanted to be Blastoise (pokemon) for halloween this year. The shell and the front part are paper mached cardboard painted with spraypaint. The shell pattern was done with tape. He also wore gloves that I sewed claws onto and a tail that I made out of an old tshirt. The shell is held on with straps that attached up by the cannons and tied behind his back. (on a side note, I thought it would be good to crochet him a blue hat, but he prefered the idea of shaving off all his hair and his beard and painting himself blue.  Roll Eyes)Enjoy Smiley

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 5 Beanies (pic heavy) on: May 16, 2011 03:10:47 PM
I made these for a fundraiser fashion show & trunk show comming up this week. Not quite the right season for beanies, but I'm hoping they go over well anyways. In WI you never know when you'll need a hat!

I do all my hats freehand, so no pattern available, but if you like them feel free to try to copy them Wink


14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hats, Hats, and more Hats on: February 02, 2011 01:00:23 PM
Here's some hats I've made over this winter.  Each one is made by trial and error, so when I decide I don't like it I rip it out and start over. It's a long process, but I end up happier in the long run. Unfortuately, trial and error leaves me with no patterns to share, but most are pretty basic beanies, so they shouldn't be too hard for anyone interested to figure out Smiley

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simple Skirt w/mini-tutorial on: January 07, 2011 01:05:42 PM
This is basically the easiest skirt ever. This is the fourth one I've made, and thought its about time I share it for others to enjoy.
To make it you just need 2 measurements: your hip measurment and the length you want plus a few inches for the elastic waist and the hem.
Cut 2 rectangles that are (hip measurement) X (Length + allowances).
Sew the sides of the skirt together. (Note: it will look huge, don't worry.)
Press about 1/2" over on the top, then fold again and press the width of your elastic plus 1/4"-1/2".
Sew waistband, leaving an opening for elastic. Insert elastic. Sew the rest of the waistband shut.
Hem bottom.

Mine took almost 2 yards of fabric, but it varies with the length/width needed. I used 2" wide elastic, but really anything from 1"-2" has worked fine for these in the past.

It seems like among family and friends this is the year to have babies! Here's 4 blankets I made for all the new little ones over the past couple months. They're all from the same Round Ripple Pattern found at:http://project-angel-kisses.150m.com/roundripple.html

If you can find some Dr. Suess fabric you could sew up some bibs, diaper covers/shorts, a shopping cart cover, or a travel fold-up changing mat. Good luck!
19  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What weird meals have you made while totally broke? on: June 08, 2010 07:40:21 PM
My husband and I make random leftovers casseroles which we refer to as "welfare surprise."

Generally, a can of cream of whatever-we-have-on hand-soup, some sort of noodles, and any leftover meat and veggies mixed into a casserole dish and baked until its nice and bubbly. It's also good with cheese and/or mashed potatoes on top.
