1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Super Punch Out Mega Project on: November 20, 2010 02:27:46 PM
After about two years and almost 80,000 x's (is one stitch half of the x or the whole thing?), my Super Mega Punch Out Project is finished. It measures about 12" by 28" so it's pretty big and I have yet to find a frame that will actually fit it. I really don"t want to spend $150 to custom frame it so I'm not sure where it's going to go yet. I'm kind of sad to see it finished because now I have nothing to do. Sad

You can see more closeups on my flickr:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/sewsew/sets/72157625286608759/
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Hello Kitty Cardboard Car! on: October 01, 2009 07:29:02 PM
Recently my daughter started kindergarten and being the mommy I've found that I have to do almost as much work as she does.  We've had lots of little projects that are being sent home that I get to work on.  My latest project was to make a cardboard car for the upcoming "transportation parade".  The kids get all dressed up in little cardboard cars (or planes or trains...) and march around the school and then they get to check out some real cars and trucks.  My daughter had her mind set on being a VW Bug that had Hello Kittys all over the sides.  I tried for a Bug but it didn't end up that way... 

I did most of the work but my daughter colored all of the kittys and cupcakes...

I'm a little upset about the "face".  I wasn't paying attention and I put it on crooked.  I've learned to live with it though.  Cheesy  And yes... that's a blower on the hood.  That's my husband's contribution.  Cheesy

We still have to put some suspenders on it so she can wear it but other than that it's finished.  Someday I'll have a real car that looks just like this.  Cheesy

Yay!  And thanks to my lovely husband for learning how to do product photography, you guys don't have to look at all the junk that always ends up in the back of my photos!  Cheesy

I bought this oldrusty looking planter at goodwill for $1.99 and decided it needed some serious repainting!  It went from this...

...to this!

I based the paint job off of my daughter's favorite Hotwheel!   Cheesy
6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Sweet Little Twinkletoes! on: April 29, 2009 07:06:36 AM
My four year old daughter saw a commercial for the new Sketchers Twinkletoes http://www.skechers.com/shoes-and-clothing/brands/skechers_twinkle_toes/product/shuffles-_icies/lvhp/
and decided that she REALLY had to have some so when I found some plain white shoes on clearance for 3 dollars I knew what I had to do...

Outside of the shoes.

Inside of the shoes... I accidentally messed up and put the cake slice on the inside of the shoe instead of the outside but I kind of like it like this.  The other shoe just has clouds on the inside.

Fronts... I glued my fingers together... twice.   Lips sealed


Cake slice closeup.

Cupcake closeup.

And that was before I finished painting them and before the jewels were (painstakingly) glued on. Cheesy

And that's the happy recipient.  I made the dress too so I guess that was kind of the inspiration for the shoes.  Thanks for looking!

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Fun Foods Raggie Bibs on: April 22, 2009 06:11:16 AM
Hey guys!  I recently finished these tea towels for a friend who's pregnant with her first baby.  I used tea towels for my daughter when she was born as burp rags.  When she was old enough to sit up and eat, I clipped them around her neck and they caught way more spills than a regular bib.  So I thought since towels were so handy for me they might be of some use to someone else!

8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Lenny the Bottle Opener's Big Day. on: January 21, 2009 08:41:43 AM
I'm taking a graphic design class and out teacher gave us each a hand tool for our semester's project.  We're supposed to draw it, paint it, do some photography...  I think.  He was kinda vague.  So I took it waaaaaay off the deep end and decided to give lenny the photoshoot he's always dreamed of.  Possibly Mature?  So if bottle opener nudity offends you please do not continue.

(Lenny's got a big butt.)

(he's a little rusty.)
I hope you like them!  I got the idea for these from the hilarious artist Bent Objects http://www.flickr.com/photos/bentobjects/  and while mine aren't anywhere near as good as his, I still like 'em. Cheesy
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Here's to it... on: January 18, 2009 02:33:43 PM
My favorite artist is Derek Yaniger (he's a god!) so I took one of his images and translated it into embroidery...

I'm gonna put it in a crazy frame and then hang it above the tiki bar that my husband is making me. Cheesy
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / From Bunkbed to Surf Shack!! Completely finished... pics on page 7! on: January 02, 2009 02:39:50 PM
We wanted my daughter to have a beach style room because she loves the beach and when we got my husband's old bunk beds we knew what we had to do!

Here's the ugly old bunk beds... please excuse the mess...

Then we added the sides...

Then we made the top bunk into a stable floor that she can walk on, and added a net "door" and a grass bedskirt...

And here it is all finished!  All we have left to do is build some solid stairs to replace the little temporary stairs in front of her door. 

This is a shot of the inside of the bed.  I made little bamboo curtain rods and tiny curtains for all of her windows and my husband actually knocked out the power to half the house when he installed the little porthole light. Cheesy

And this is what the top of the bed looks like.  I think the little pink cloth parrot really adds to it!  Thanks for looking!  I hope you guys like it!
