2  Parachuting Robot Applique Hoodie in Needlework: Completed Projects by Quinston on: October 03, 2007 08:23:36 AM
I bought a few "BamPop" robot stamps. After enlarging the design and cutting the pieces out with shiny fabric scraps, they became appliques for a hoodie for my 12 year old.  She added the beaded stars and sparkles. It was a fun project.  The glitterdot fabric is hard to photograph. Hope this isn't too blurry.

Always striving to be Craftster-worthy  Smiley:
This year's Halloween parade: Big scary monster, Li'l Scream and paper doll (outright thievery from paperthinwalls on p9 of the post your best costume thread.  Thanks, doll!)  For t.o.t'ing we put a graduation gown on the giant and pinned his hands up so that my son had his hands free for holding candy.  He was zipped up in the gown and could see out of a slit in the gown so he looked more like a giant monster than a kid walking down the street with a giant monster on his back.

My kids and I made Lance Armstrong and a Giant Lady for last year's Halloween parade.

I posted more pictures in July when the Tour was on.
Just starting to plan for this year...
Love that Nibbler and Space Ghost!

And what we did with the scraps!  The doll's shirt is a craftster style re-con.

We're so proud of ourselves!  I'm glad we did it together - no procrastinating with a partner.
Thanks again, rickrackruby!

6  Coffee cans to golden entryway shelves! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Quinston on: July 31, 2005 10:57:43 AM
This isn't one of those jawdropping, omg, how'd you do that kind of posts but I'm going to post it anyway because this project was cheap, er inexpensive and is very useful.

I had been hoarding coffee cans and knew they had a higher purpose than sitting in the basement.
We needed a place to put all of our hats, gloves, etc.  - things you take off as soon as you walk in the door. First, I spray-painted the cans gold to match our lovely golden radiator.  Then my husband riveted them together. (I didn't know how to use the rivet gun.) Then he drilled holes in the side and used some wire to attach the tower of cans to the radiator.  This is version2 with the cans angled upward so things won't fall out and you can see what's in them better.  Now everyone has their own place to put their "stuff" and I think they look pretty good.  It was supposed to be MY project but I think my husband did a wonderful job. He is the king of frugal so these  work for us!
and from the side:

 What do you think?

8  Duckling wristband in Completed Projects by Quinston on: July 22, 2005 05:53:19 AM
Hi.  I was inspired by all of the super wristbands on this site and tried to make my own out of felt, beads, fabric scraps.  The duckling were "borrowed" from a children's book by Coby Hol.  Some of the stitching is coming out at the top but it has held up through several handwashings and daily use by an 8 year old.

9  kitty hats in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Quinston on: July 20, 2005 04:50:39 AM
This was a fun pattern for a beginner and the swinging pompons are the best! It took me a few days to make, but I'm sure many of the more experienced craftsters could whip it up in a few hours.  
BTW - isn't this the best site?  I'm constantly amazed at all of the talent and creativity posted every day.
It is humbling, yet inspiring.

10  Lance is back in the yellow jersey! 4 pictures in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Quinston on: July 12, 2005 07:51:41 PM
These are backpack puppets my kids and I made for a Halloween parade last year.  My son is a big fan of Lance Armstrong, and since he reclaimed the yellow jersey today at Le Tour de France, we took our Lance out for a celebration dance.   I meant to post these back in October...I just googled "giant puppets" and found lots of instructions.

(He needs a new jersey since he rides for Discover now.)
Hope you like these.  They were a lot of fun!
