21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Golden Girls! on: March 10, 2008 04:50:27 PM
Made for my partner in the Golden Girls swap.  I liked it so much I wanted to keep it for myself! Cheesy

On the jacket...


22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cheesecake! on: February 26, 2008 03:15:46 PM
My first time using liquid sculpey!  I think I like it!
23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Scanning vintage transfers? on: February 26, 2008 02:58:38 PM
I just found an old transfer (Vogart 271) and would like to start collecting more.  I would love to use them but I don't want to damage the original so I've decided to scan them so I can use the printed design with a transfer pen.  Got any tips for scanning the originals?  Stuff like making them fit on to the scanner without cutting the sheet or taking the beige color out of the background?  (If you can't tell I'm computer illiterate.)  Cheesy  Any quickie tips would be appreciated!
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I think I'll keep it... on: February 06, 2008 03:40:53 PM
I think I like this pattern.  I used Vogue #2091 - view B and it was pretty simple.  I just happened to have enough fabric lying around.  Wink  

Now I've just got to find a *few* more projects to make to try and cut down on the fabric stash problem...
25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Dino Hat! Rawrrrr! on: February 03, 2008 05:54:11 PM
I started this hat for my daughter ages ago and just finished it tonight.  For some reason it took me almost two years to add the inside lining. Cheesy

Atleast after a couple of years she still fits into it!  She even has a little room to grow!
26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Cupcake Crusader!! on: December 31, 2007 03:20:53 PM
My three year old wanted a cape for christmas.  A purple cape.  I decided to make one for her but my husband was very specific on what the cape should be made out of.  It had to be satin.  And besides having purple in it, he had to pick out the other colors. (You'd think I was making it for him... Roll Eyes)  We came up with this...

She's the cupcake crusader!!  The cupcake is just an iron on and I lined the purple with hot pink satin.  Easy!

This is a closeup of the closure (Crazy hair included...) It's actually velcro but I sewed a button on the outside for looks.  You can'tsee it in the pictures, but she can't just wear the cape.  She has to wear her cape, tutu, monster baseball hat and cowboy boots all at the same time.  So she's a baseball playing,ballerina superhero on the range.  Or a football playing king in space (If we're watching spongebob.)
27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Ruined Napkins... on: December 22, 2007 03:54:33 PM
These are the napkins that I was going to use for my MIL's christmas gift.  I ruined them by washing them (who knew? Huh)  so I ironed on some designs that would match my kitchen and kept them for myself.  Since they're permanently wrinkly and misshapen I don't feel bad about getting stains all over them Wink.

I think they'll look good with a little pizza sauce on them, don't you? Cheesy
28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mexican Napkins for my MIL on: December 19, 2007 01:06:53 PM
I just HAD to draw my MIL's name in the Christmas lottery this year.  She's got a Mexican themed kitchen (not really themed, persay... she IS Mexican...) so I found these adorable patterns on Floresita's flicker page and figured they would make great napkins.  I also got her some little shot glasses with cactus's in the bottom. 

I especially like the ricrack...

Closeup of senorita with fruit.  Do you think she'll like them?
29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Thanksgiving / This year's Thanksgiving Contribution on: November 23, 2007 12:10:39 PM
My husband and I aren't thanksgiving people.  We would rather just go out to eat but my family decided to have a big family get together this year and decided to ask everyone to bring a dish.  Now I know that's only fair but I can't cook and the last time I did cook for Thanksgiving, I made everyone sick.  They still wanted me to bring something.  So I made what any self respecting noncooker would bring... Rice cripsy treats.  Shaped like turkey legs.

All they are is rice crispy treats shaped like drumsticks and the "meat" part is covered with peanut butter and dipped in cocoa rice crispies.

Group shot.  They're just hanging out to cool on our much used pizza stone.  I apologize for the crappy photos.  I'm the bad photo queen.
30  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Sweet Sundae Sue on: November 01, 2007 05:28:45 PM
That's what I named her.  I don't know why because her name is no where close to Sue.  My three year old just happened to run across an ice cream costume and BEGGED to have it for Halloween.  I thought it was pretty ugly but she just HAD to have it, so I beaded the H*E*Doublehockeysticks out of it and made a killer hat.
Some of the comments we heard were "What is she, a chili pepper?", "What a cute tomato!", and "Look at the cute Humpty Dumpty."  I have no idea what most of those people were smoking, but I'm pretty sure she doesn't look like a chili pepper.  We also got a few "What an adorable cupcake!"  Alright.  I might let that one slide...
Just for fun, some shots of hat and costume sans adorable baby...
