1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Parachuting Robot Applique Hoodie 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.
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / animation software for beginners on: December 06, 2005 06:58:03 AM
Trying to save a few hours of web searching:  Does anyone have recommendations for animation software that would be good for a computer literate pre-teen? Thanks for any input!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Coffee cans to golden entryway shelves! 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?

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Duckling wristband 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.

6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / kitty hats 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.
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lance is back in the yellow jersey! 4 pictures 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!
