21  sarah only wants to eat your brains a little bit...(now with friends) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lovething on: March 27, 2008 01:28:21 PM
After making a valentine zombie for my boyfriend I decided to try making more. They're just so much fun! I made this one a little differently; she's much larger--21"-- and more like a ragdoll. I named her Sarah, after a girl who used to pick on me in high school  Cheesy

Closeup of her horrible injury:

The fun part was spattering her with the "blood" (watered down acrylic paint) after she was all finished. I think it gives her more personality.  Smiley

I made more! This is Tara...

And Alex...

22  A garbage can made from garbage. How poetic. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lovething on: March 06, 2008 12:05:29 PM
I found this project in Mark Montano's Big-Ass Book of Crafts, and fell in love with it instantly. Many many hours and many many little paper circles later I have a bathroom trash can made from recycled magazine pages. I'd like to use this technique to make more items for my home. Maybe some coasters or little storage boxes.

Looking down into it. The bottom is a big disk made from strips of paper coiled together and I filled in the center hole with a bead of hot glue.

23  My Zombie Valentine in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lovething on: February 14, 2008 11:39:53 AM
The boyface and I love all things zombie related, so this year I made a little zombified version of myself. My name is Xan, so we call her Xanbie.  Grin

I have pink hair and almost never leave the house without a pair of stripey tights, so of course she had to have the same.

Closeup of her face, with one eye falling out.

And my favorite part. She's ripping out her heart and offering it to my love.

I gave her to him in a box I decorated with a picture of a brain, and inside was a little note that said "Roses are red, violets are blue, my undead heart belongs to you." He loved it, and she sits on his desk in his office now.

24  Treasure hunt bag in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lovething on: December 04, 2007 12:44:07 PM
I made this as a Christmas gift for my daughter, inspired by some I'd seen on Etsy a while back. It's a bag filled with rice and small objects that she can try to find by squeezing, shaking and manipulating the bag to move the contents around. I'm giving it to her with a list of all the hidden objects so she can find them all.

25  My handmade holiday in Winter Holidays by lovething on: December 04, 2007 12:38:07 PM
I'm making a LOT of decorations and gifts this Christmas so rather than making separate posts for everything I thought I'd just continue to update this thread as I finish projects. This is our first year (my boyfriend and I) living in a place of our own so we don't have any Christmas ornaments or decorations. Instead of buying them I decided to make everything myself as well as my gifts for friends and family, and to challenge myself (and because I'm a little bit crazy, let's face it) I'm trying to do it all in 12 days. There's lots more info and pictures on my blog.

Here's what I've made so far:

An advent calendar

Coffee table placemats, coasters and throw pillows

A tree skirt

12/5: Today I made a wreath. Styrofoam wreath form, batting, and holiday print scraps.

26  Matching Patchwork Scarves in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by lovething on: November 11, 2007 12:58:17 PM
I made these patchwork scarves for my daughter and myself. Both are backed with linen and hers has a loop on one side to keep the scarf from falling off.

They're very warm and comfy and I plan on making more in different colors.

Spider pendant from atsuko:

I was so glad this arrived in time for Halloween. I wore it all day.

Autumn's PJ pants from ktlady:

These fit her perfectly and she really loves them.

Autumn with her boo boo bunny from sewknitter:

She LOVES this bunny. She carries it around with her and we've already used it for a boo boo when she bumped her head. It's also great in the bathtub.

Thank  you so much to all my wonderful partners. This has been really fun and I can't wait to do another swap!

29  Teenage--I mean, 4-year-old--Mutant Ninja Turtle! in Halloween Costumes by lovething on: October 31, 2007 08:10:48 AM
My daughter wanted to be a ninja turtle (Raphael, to be specific) for Halloween this year. At first I found the prospect of making a turtle costume a little intimidating and I was really doubting my ability to pull it off, but it looks a lot better than I expected. It's not perfect, though. At the last minute before sending her off to school (the students all dress up and have a party on Halloween) I had to add a few well-placed safety pins to keep her from falling apart, but oh well. It looks cute, and I think hers was the only homemade costume in her class.

I made everything except the green body, which is a store bought hoodie and sweat pants set. The shell and knee and elbow pads are made of felt, the mask is some red material that wasn't supposed to fray but, as you can see, it started to a bit. The belt is made from brown cotton I found in my scrap stash. Her procrastinator daddy still hadn't made her weapons but promised to have them in time for trick-or-treating tonight, which I suppose is just as well since I'm not sure I would have sent her to school with them anyhow.

Oh and I know that in the original cartoon the turtles' shells were green and yellow, but they were brown in the new TMNT movie and that was what she chose for her costume.

Adorable little froggy from GatsbyGirl:

I named him Pinkus. My daughter has already tried to steal him.

He didn't turn into a prince but that's okay.  Cheesy

Aaaand my gorgeous yarn from GatorWrangler:

The color is actually pinker in real life. It's SO pretty! I haven't decided what I want to do with it yet. Thank you both!
