1  Dolly clothes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: August 27, 2010 06:00:30 PM
Using this tutorial http://obsessivelystitching.blogspot.com/2009/06/baby-clothes-to-doll-clothes-tutorial.html  I made DD's baby doll some clothes.
I use DD's sleepers that I had saved, she thinks it's cool that her baby get to wear them now.



After, this one became a sleep sack.

2  Pretend Medicine in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: August 09, 2010 10:34:46 AM
My daughter is seven and still active with her dolls. Nurse is her favorite game so I recycled an empty medicine bottle to help her heal the babies.
Warning If your obedient child has not figured out how to get the cap off then leave it off so they don't learn. My DD learned years ago how to open the child proof caps and understands the danger of medications.

One empty bottle with or without cap
one little bottle of nail polish, I used BonBon

Wash the bottle and let it dry completely. Pour the polish into the bottle. The polish may pour out or just drip, mine did both but either way it didn't take long.
Once the polish is in tilt and turn the bottle till if coats the bottom and a little of the sides. Allow to dry, you may have to turn it a few times while drying because the polish will slide down the sides.

3  Empty candy tin plus a smelly child [Natural Deoderant] in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: July 20, 2010 01:05:22 PM
I have been holding onto this tin for a while waiting for the right project

After seeing this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=335263.0
I realized that the tin would be perfect and my seven year old would not smell so much.
I didn't have coconut oil so I used canola which worked fine, DD loves it and feels a bit grown up everytime she uses it.
Next time I will use coconut oil and put it in an old deodorant stick tube.

Here is what Yeltuci sent me. THANK YOU!!!
A scrumptiously soft scarf in pineapple colors. Even thought it was 99+ degrees I tried it on. Sooooo soft and warm, I can wait for the 25 degree winter weather. It has a removable crocheted brooch.

Detail of the brooch, made with pop tabs.

Two knitted dishcloths, much to pretty to use. One has a pineapple on it.

Knit Pineapple detail

A cute pineapple journal and a gift bag with a crocheted pineapple. Inside the bag was a pair of crocheted earrings and....

Psych stitch markers/charms, including a T-rex  Grin Grin

5  My dressform finally done --UPDATE Post 1-- in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by goldencrafter on: March 11, 2010 02:56:04 PM
 UPDATE Here is the article that helped me pad out the form http://www.haabet.dk/TightLinings_andBoning/15.html
I wrapped mine a little different but overall I found it very useful. There are even instructions to make arms for your form, awesome!!

Now I'm fully aware that I am overweight and need to lose thirty pounds but, seeing the form finished is a hard pill to swallow. All the lumps and bumps match me nearly to a tee.

After purchasing the basic form from  Roxy Display
I decided to buy the Fabulous Fit Patented Fitting System to help get it just right http://www.fabulousfit.com/
It comes with thirteen pads and two jersey covers.

First I added quilt batting to fill out the form about an inch.

Then I started adding the pads according to the directions. I had to add a little more batting here and there to get the measurements right, then put the final cover on top. Now I have an inanimate twin, sorry for the image you are about to see but trust me, better her than the real me. Can't wait to try it out, Infinity dress here I come.

7  Spa Towel Wrap in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: February 17, 2010 04:26:40 PM
DD has alot of trouble keeping her wet hair wrapped in a towel, until now. I used the tutorial from Skip to my Lou.
Instead of it being 36 inches long I made is 28 inches and it fit perfect, even on my head. Great way to use those $1.97 towels from Wal Mart.

8  Filled Tutu in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: February 17, 2010 04:21:52 PM
Last night I made my seven year old daughter a tutu filled with silk flowers and leaves. She wanted a long one for some reason but it is still really cute, normally I think it would be a few inches above the knee. I will definitely be making more as gifts.
I got the tutorial from youcanmakethis.com

9  Dotty Play Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: May 05, 2009 10:58:03 AM
The pattern is Simplicity 3859 cut to a size five. I chose view A but didn't do a bow and I used bias tape instead of ribbon around the waist. It hits right a DD's knee which is perfect right now. The fabric is greenish with chocolate brown dots so I used brown bias tape around the arm edge. I like the retro look it has.

10  Sunny Lemonade Dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: May 05, 2009 10:20:44 AM
I finished this yesterday. The pattern is McCall's Easy Stitch and Save M5370 size five. My daughter is a size six in ready to wear so I cut this a size five should have done a four because this the five is still big.
Also only did two tiers for the skirt because she needed something shorter so she will need to were shorts with it.

There was a flaw in the fabric I didn't see until it was together so to cover it I added some yo yo flowers to each tier.
