1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hats hats and more hats on: May 16, 2012 12:07:48 PM


So everyone I know is having babies so I've been busy like a bee. Here are some of the lovely little hats that have come out of the madness (as you can see most of the requests have been for little owl hats)

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dog Portrait Onesie on: March 18, 2012 03:10:07 PM
My cousin is pregnant and the first thing people ask me for when they find out they are pregnant is an embroidered onesie (this started when I made 6 for my sister when she was pregnant with my niece).

It's always harder when you don't know the sex of the baby.
My cousin and her husband have 2 dogs; an American Bulldog and a Chocolate Lab.

This is my first attempt and embroidering any type of realistic picture (normally it's more cartoony type stuff) but it turned out pretty well. It did stretch out a little on the Bulldog face but very minor. Any of you that embroider on baby onesies know, it's friggin hard to get it not to pucker or pull lol. Also the wording and heart look kinda wonky in the picture but in person they are straight.

So here it is....

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Matchbox Advent Calendar on: November 08, 2011 03:09:17 PM
I know there has been a lot of them posted on here but I just love them! This was my first attempt at it and it was so easy. I made it out of matchboxes and some thin cardboard.

I ended up filling it with some buttons, little plastic glittery animal shapes, rubber ducky pushpins, chocolates, and other knick knacks and gave it to my sister.

I am in love with the scrapbooking paper I used as well. It was one of those things where I was finally ok with using a piece of it ( I only have 2 sheets of it) because I knew it would look good on this project.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Copenhagen Pattern on: October 30, 2011 10:04:53 PM
I used the Stitch Nations Copenhagen Pillow pattern to make this throw. I used 7 different colours plus the off-white. I love the way it turned out, it's so happy and colourful. Not one circle is the same.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / ...and it all started with a big bang... on: July 17, 2011 08:12:26 AM
I am part of the "50 in 2011" craft challenge and this was one of my projects, a wedding gift for a co-worker

I'm glad I finished it because I still have to stretch it and put it in a frame. I like to mix hand made gifts and purchased gifts for certain people who I know will appreciate and love a crafted gift. A co-worker/friend of mine is 20, she is getting married August 06 and her and her bf are both Christian and so this is also the first time they will be living together (and away from their parents). I know that they both love the show "The Big Bang Theory" so I thought I'd make something for their first home together.

I also have to snicker at the dirty dirty pun of "it all started with a big bang" for their wedding present lol

The pattern is from Weelittlestitches on etsy. The patterns are hillarious and awesome.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Getting Better! Monkey and Gnome hats on: June 20, 2011 06:47:02 PM
I recently started learning how to crochet things other than granny squares and scarves. I have a co-worker who is pregnant and her baby shower is this friday, she knew I was going to be making her some stuff because it is common knowledge at my work that I craft ALOT and people can generally expect hand crafted gifts for special occasions.

She knew I'd be embroidering her some onesies because she specifically asked as she had seen the ones I had done for my sister lol (I ended up doing 3 for her)

But I thought I'd make her some hats too. So I thought "this is as good of a time if any to try some patterns"
I ended up making her these two as well as a simple newborn cap in white

I'm very happy with how they turned out and I'm pretty confident that she'll like them as well  Smiley
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Simple Bathroom Makeover (lots o' pics) on: June 18, 2011 02:42:53 PM
We moved into our condo in September

Everything was painted muted grey.
Even the carpet and flooring is grey.
Like a mental institution.

So I decided I couldn't stand it any longer and started on the guest bathroom (or my bathroom as DH calls it, he has the ensuite)

Here is the before pics

And here is the after.

I decided to put big acrylic knobs on because not only do I like them (so girly and glam) but it tied in the faucet a bit better (I was on a tight budget and replacing the faucet wasn't an option)

The wrapping paper in the frames I LOVE! 3.95 for a big sheet that I used for the 2 frames and in the cup that holds my make up brushes (99cents for the glass yay!) the bath mat, towels, towel rack, and glass bottles were all from IKEA (so relatively cheap), frames from Michaels (7.99 on sale, then an extra 25% off that) and my dad does renovations so he supplied me with the paint for free Smiley

All in all, I LOVE IT

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Zombie CrossStitch from Zombie kit on: March 20, 2011 11:20:14 PM
The zombie xstitches are all probably going to end up on sewn projects, although the work bites one might end up at  my desk at work lol. They have not been ironed yet so the "Zombies only want you for your brains" one looks kinda wonky in the picture.

The patterns are from this kit (http://search.barnesandnoble.com/books/product.aspx?r=1&isbn=9781435124103&itm=1&if=N&cm_mmc=Skimlinks-_-k186085-_-j12871747k186085-_-Primary, which has cute patterns but they patterns aren't very well done  Undecided
They used colors for the map instead of symbols and because in some of the patterns there are several threads that are similar in colour it's really REALLY hard to tell which is which. I b.s.'d my way through the skin of the Miss Zombie one.

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / STOCKINGS!! SEQUINS!!! YAY SHINY THINGS!!! on: January 03, 2011 09:41:27 AM
For our first Christmas in our new home I made my husband and  I stockings. I bought Bucilla kits that matched our personalities (as best I could anyways, they didn't have one for him of Santa playing Call Of Duty in Pajama Pants). I love to bake and cook and my husband was a quarterback all through high school and into junior college. I love how they turned out even though they took forever.

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / ONESIES!!!!! on: November 09, 2010 06:51:11 PM
So my sister is due in 6 weeks and it is the first little munchkin to the next generation so we are all SUPER excited. And being the FABULOUS Aunt I know I will be I made the little booger some onesies to...you know...make sure it starts out on the right path in life  Wink

My sister and her hubby are also SOOOOO NOT "baby" people (i.e. no pastel colours, no winnie the pooh, no disney, no cute baby animals) only monsters, zombies, and everything else thats cool.

So here are the 6 onesies I made for her baby shower present.
Oh, and I ironed really soft interfacing on the back so the baby's tummy doesn't get irritated

Jenny Hart pattern "Really Sweet"

Sew Lovely Day of the Dead Skull

I'm pretty sure this one was DMC pattern

Plants Vs Zombies (Which my sister loves. This one took the longest and I wanted to quit half way through)

Jenny Hart Robot Pattern

"My spoon is too big" (From a Don Hertzfeld Animation "Rejected")
