1  Tiny recycled coffee filter wreaths in Needlework: Completed Projects by Sunbala on: November 22, 2018 09:16:32 AM
My daughter and I made tiny stitched wreaths form the plastic filters that come in the bottom of single serve coffee pods. Well put them on our winter village houses.
 Next we got inspired by stecotis spider rose tree and turned one of the filters into a rose. Its really relaxing to make the roses! We want to make a bunch. Not sure what we will do with them, maybe connect them to make a necklass?

2  Fun with one yard of pho fur: skit, tail and ears in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Sunbala on: November 06, 2016 05:48:40 PM
My kid was using up all our toilet paper constructing long cat tails, so we took her to the fabric store to pick out a better medium.

One yard of pho Leopard fur later, we made an industrial length tail, ears, and more practically, a skirt that could be worn to school.

6 foot tail. Ears= headband + cloth + wire. Kid designed. Kid made, with some help. Kid tested. Kid approved.

We copied her pink skirt to make the Leopard version.

 We have enough left to make a utility tail (24 inches in length) for outdoor play dates.
Fun fun fun with one yard and lots of imagination.

3  1st completed cross-stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Sunbala on: November 23, 2014 11:20:06 AM

26 years ago we had a long car-trip. I half completed this sheep during the ride, then put it in my sewing box and forgot it. I was a kid then. Recently I found my old sewing box and have begun to complete all the forgottens. I think this may be the first cross stitch project I've completed -- kind of Zen to follow a simple pattern. I think I'll do more.

4  Lego Gender Reassignment Surgery in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Sunbala on: September 06, 2014 05:38:42 PM
My four-year-old daughter had no women to fly her Lego spaceships- only Dudes. Three sharpies later .  .  .

The key to a successful outcome is not to overdraw the features. I used dots to mark off the features.


Now there are five bold pilots, ready to fly.

And if next week she wants cyclopses or dudes with mustaches -- a q-tip with a little rubbing alcohol will serve to make the change.

6  Pink Atlas sewing machine foot pedal? in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Sunbala on: February 09, 2014 03:30:16 PM
I purchased a sewing table at a thrift store and found a pink atlas sewing machine inside it. It is missing the foot pedal and I can't find where a petal would plug in. Does anyone have one of these and know where the foot pedal should attach? Anyone know where to get parts?

7  Pillow case to Christmas Dress for Bebe. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Sunbala on: December 23, 2013 12:52:13 PM
My little one insisted that Bebe have a Christmas dress. Bebe is too small to wear hand-me-downs and the store-bought dress that would fit her is too expensive.

Bebe's new Christmas dress.

 I had been looking for a use for an old friend -- a piece of material that began its life as a bed sheet sometime in the 1980's, was reincarnated into a pillowcase for a body pillow and a Christmas tree skirt, and was now too ragged even to become a dish towel.

The pllowcase in its ragged glory.

Bebe's small size allowed me to cut from the parts of the cloth that were still good. I did not use a pattern-- the idea was to produce the dress before my child got bored with the project. She held down the sewing machine petal and did some of the basing stitches. Bebe was carried triumphantly (upside-down) through the grocery in her new dress as soon as we were done.

8  Guess what these tree ornaments are in Winter Holidays by Sunbala on: December 21, 2013 12:08:15 PM

These tree ornaments are a solution to my family's dilemma of too many _____.

Can you guess what they are?

Closer view . . .

Still not sure?

Hint: 100% organic.

I went to the Knoxville Turkish Cultural center today for a festival and made this really cool marbled paper there. It is only 8 by 10 inches and I want to do something special with it. Any ideas?

10  Glitter Pumpkins in Halloween Decor and Parties by Sunbala on: October 06, 2013 12:12:22 PM
The combination of a 3 year old, glitter, and decoupaging medium can only be reasonably described as lethal. So we have no progress pictures.
Here are our glitter pumpkins. The 3-D one is a gourd that we grew last year and found well dried-out in the garage this fall. The 2-D pumpkin was purchased for a dollar at a craft store. This is a good outdoor project.

In case you are wondering, decoupaging medium does eventually come out of hair.
