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

3  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.

4  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.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My dressform finally done --UPDATE Post 1-- 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.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pink & Brown Paisley Dress on: March 02, 2010 10:20:57 PM
My daughter is in need of new dresses so here is the first of three this month. Pink and brown paisley, my favorite. The pattern is Simplicity 3859, very simple and versatile.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Spa Towel Wrap 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  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Filled Tutu 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  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Painting and gluing on kids shoes?? on: June 16, 2009 11:08:22 AM
My daughter loves Lelli Kelly shoes but my budget doesn't

I would really like to make something similar for her, so what would be the best paints and glues for kids shoes. They would probably be worn everyday so I am stuck on what is the most durable. Obviously I know they won't look a great as the really thing but it can't hurt to try. Any help would be great thanks.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Dotty Play Dress 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.
