61  Denin Elephant in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Faren on: December 31, 2005 01:57:58 PM
Hey, here is another Christmas present I made.  It is for not quite a 1 yr old boy, whose name is Phoenix.
I made it from this tutorial:    https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28412.0
You can tell I didn't sew a straight line on his truck, I almost didn't get it turned inside out!
I also had major problems attaching the ears. I don't suppose anyone has any tips like that hidden stitch tutorial for sewing up the stuffing hole?
I think I did that very well on his belly.




Thanks for looking!

Edited to clarify!

62  Turtle in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Faren on: December 29, 2005 07:11:25 PM
I made this for my 3 yr old nephew, because he loves turtles. I embroidered his name(Alston) on the middle patch, but I didn't pay enough attention to center it!  I copied the pattern from here:
I recycled some jeans and stained polo knit work shirts of my husbands.  

I really like his face, I think it turned out pretty cute.
I just heard that he loves it, and it is a friend of Brownie Bears.  Grin

63  Dammit Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Faren on: December 29, 2005 05:39:42 PM
For Christmas for my aunt in law, who became a friend by us getting through a difficult time together, I  made a dammit doll. She could still use the stress relief.  




She is just a little bowlegged, huh?  but still cute I think.

I copied the verse from:

64  Cross Stitch Hummingbird height banner in Needlework: Completed Projects by Faren on: December 29, 2005 05:28:02 PM
My husband's grandmother lost her spouse a few months ago and at the same time had to leave her house of 30 yrs. It was a rough time, I and others with me spent a month with her. Anyway, my husband was showing me the closet door with all the grandkids (and great grands now) heights and ages, and said it was to bad she had to leave it.  Then, he had a light bulb moment and asked me if I would Cross stitch it.  Sounded like a good project to me!  This is what I came up with.  The heights are spaced correctly so if it is hung right they will be correct.  She loves humming birds, so I found some free patterns on the web.   http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/866/704/1600/shunkyfamily.jpg 
Just in case you are curious, Barry is my husband, Lillian is grandma, and Ken is grandpa.

Please let me know what you think!

65  recycled jeans in What the heck can I do with THIS? by Faren on: November 25, 2005 09:54:19 AM
hi, I posted this on the stencil board, but then I thought it would fit on here better.  I'm giving gift baskets for Christmas with a kitchen theme, and I had 5 pairs of old jeans laying around, so I went surfing on the web and found this.    http://4-h.wsu.edu/clothing/quick_projects/denim/denim.htm
I went for the bag to collect grocery bags.  Here they are.

I was going to put a two red stripes in there too, but found I liked just the white. I think I like the faded jeans the best.

what do you think?

66  Stars and Stripes in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Faren on: November 24, 2005 03:04:19 PM
Hello! After lurking for a while I thought I would finally post.  For Christmas I am making everyone gift baskets with a kitchen theme.  I found this site with lots tutes on recycling jeans.                                        http://4-h.wsu.edu/clothing/quick_projects/denim/denim.htm
So I decided to make bags to hold grocery bags.  I was going to personalize each one differently, but decided that was way to much work.  So, patriotic it is!  I really liked this band of stars I had in a book and I made the stripes with a ruler with about 1/4 of an inch inbetween.  The stencil has 5 stripes but I really liked the way just the white looked so I didn't use red.  Oh, the stripes I just cut out of cardboard.  I used an airbrush to stencil these, I like the faded look it gave them.  What do you think?

I like them on the faded jeans the best.
