1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dolly clothes 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  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheted Round Neck on Fabric Dress on: August 26, 2010 09:31:33 PM
This one is in German but,

 I know that there is an english version and I think it may have even been free. Can anyone help me find it?
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can anyone help with Amigurumi patterns? on: August 26, 2010 09:28:08 PM
The great thing amugurumi is that they are mostly basic shapes. I usually start with the head, take your time and don't be afraid to start over again and again until you get what you want.
crochetpatterncentral.com has a ton of ami patterns, I recommend you start there for practice and then launch into your own. Because they are small they can become addicting to make so you should get the huge box of fiberfill and a wider circle of friends to gift them all to  Cheesy

Your rubbing alcohol idea makes me think of a fake first aid kit with instructions. They could practice and learn first aid procedures.

My grandmother had something similar as a child, sounds like a good Girl Scout project. I appreciate everyones concern, when I gave it to DD she immediately informed me of the friends who would not be playing with it "they don't respect medicine mom".
I definitely would never allow a toddler to play with it.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pretend Medicine 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.

So great!  Did you scent it?
No scent but maybe next time.

I just made some my seven year old daughter (yes, sadly she needs it already) and it works great. Thank you for sharing.
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Empty candy tin plus a smelly child [Natural Deoderant] 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.

Perfect project for kids. My daughter would love to do this so I think we will have to do this soon.

I actually got supplies to make a snow-globe, too, but chickened out after talking to my post office about mailing liquids. They said if it broke while in transit & got other mail wet, I'd be "financially responsible" for anything damaged. Tongue

I had thought about that as well so that is why Shawn drank the water.
I have seen some amazing waterless snow globes.
