1  Baby Bouquet with tutorial in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by simply on: March 07, 2008 03:58:10 PM
My cousin is having her first baby shower, and being the crafty one in the family, I wanted to do something special.  I looked around at diaper cakes and diaper wreaths when I stumbled across a baby bouquet. After much searching I found how to make them, so here is my take at a baby bouquet.

I added 3 board books I found at Target.  She loves frogs, hence the ribbon and box decoration  Smiley

Basic tutorial:

a wooden box
plastic/silk leaves and small flowers
baby clothes (I used all white, 8 socks, 5 onesie's, 3 kimono style shirts)

I painted frogs, her favorite animal

and here's how it looks on the box-

The back and inside I painted the same color as the frogs.  Then I made my bouquet based off this tutorial:  http://www.marthastewart.com/article/baby-bunch-bouquet

Here's a onesie, a sock, and a shirt

and here's 14 flowers grouped into 9 bunches.

I cut an old shoe box to fit inside the box and poked 9 holes to hold the flowers.

Here's how it looks with all the flowers:

To hide the stems, I placed tissue paper around the inside, two sheets, one fluffed up, and one fluffed down.

There you go, hope you enjoy!  Cheesy

6  yo ho yo ho, a pirates life for me in Halloween Costumes by simply on: November 02, 2006 06:57:10 AM
I dressed as a pirate wench for halloween this year  Grin

the boots earrings and necklace were bought, the top and vest were simplicity patterns, the skirts were hand drafted. I made the boot cuffs also.  Only thing I regret was not using boning in the vest like it required, and it kept bunching up  Undecided

with my pirate pet, and the lace up back:

i'm insane, i olny do 2 beads at a time  Tongue

the spiral in mine is just one line of beads and then i kept adding on around it.
i stich mine like this, the loops are where i go in and out of the fabric.

when i finish a 'row' of beads i go back through all of the beads. seems to line them up nicer, and there's no way they're gonna fall off  Cheesy

i loved the mermaids, so i decided to give this one a try  Smiley  my favorite color's green, so i'm going to try to do all green for this one.  i went ahead and lightly stuffed the wings, then stitched them shut and stuffed the body fuller like someone suggested.  i guess i'll be the first to post an in progress pic if that's okay  Smiley  i worked on it for most of today.
