1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Smurfy Halloween on: November 08, 2011 06:05:43 PM

Here's the smurf costume I made my son for Halloween this year.  It's pretty cold here already, so I made it all in fleece. I modified McCall's M4964 for the pants and hat, and used New Look 6800 (OOP pattern) as is for the top. He had a lot of fun skipping around collecting candy.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fairy Bag on: May 03, 2009 02:39:17 PM
I thought this fabric was so cute. I had to make a bag out of it. I used the Bathina Bag pattern from Burda style found here: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/3825

Inside of bag - Recycled denim jeans

Thanks for looking.  Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Butterfly Tunic on: April 18, 2009 08:24:17 AM
I started this top a long time ago, but life, moving, and cats (don't ask) kinda got in the way. Now (about a year later) I've finally decided to dig it out of the closet and finish it. I am so happy to have it done just in time for the warm spring weather. Yay! Here's some pics.

I used New Look 6677 View D.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / rescue pack on: November 14, 2007 06:51:12 PM
My son was Diego this year for Halloween, but all the rescue packs that are sold in stores are cheaply made. So, I made one myself...

And some (semi-)action shots:

Hee, Hee it's pretty bad, the only way I can get him to sit still is to turn on the TV!!

So, What do you think?
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pooh Baby Quilt on: August 08, 2007 06:58:34 AM
My youngest nephew turned one this weekend, so, I made him this Winnie the Pooh quilt to celebrate.  It is my first quilt I ever made, and even though it's not perfect, I think it turned out quite cute.

Full pic of quilt.  It measures about 3' X 3'

Close up of Kanga square.

Close up of Owl square.

Close up of Christopher Robin square.  I think this square is my favorite.

All details on the appliques were hand embroidered.

Thanks for looking.
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Koi T-shirt on: July 16, 2007 06:47:33 AM
I made this t-shirt for my partner in the pond friends swap, as she really likes koi.  I used the good ole freezer paper method for the stencil.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Gold fish bag on: July 16, 2007 06:39:52 AM
I made this bag for my swap partner in the pond friends swap, as she really likes fish.

Outside of bag. The black is sugar n cream in black, and the orange is peaches n cream in white that I hand dyed using RIT sunshine orange.

I modified the old bag lady's fish bag pattern from crochetville.org to look like a goldfish and fit the cotton yarn.
8  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Poop stained onsies no more! on: July 02, 2007 11:23:28 AM
I had a big batch of black dye made up to hand dye some yarn for a swap, so I decided to make good use of it and pulled out the old stained onsies that have been sitting in my son's dresser for months!  Here's what I came up with:

Group shot

Flamin' Hearts

The Ring

Walk the line

 Cheesy  I haven't tie-dyed since high school!  This was pretty fun!
What do you think?

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Purple Stretchy Flower Bag on: May 29, 2007 06:12:44 AM
Here is the purse I made for my cousin's gradutation.  I used Simplicity pattern 4178 (I think). It is purse B with C's handle.

Front of bag.  It's a little hard to tell from the pix, but the outside of the bag is actually a purple stretch knit with a black denim overwash.  It looks really neat next to the flowers.

Inside of bag.  No pockets. Just a magnetic snap.

What do you think?
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Plaid Summer Hat on: May 21, 2007 07:03:46 AM
My DS's head outgrew all of last year's summer hats, so, I made him a new one!! I used Mccall's Pattern #4478 hat A.

Here it is:

Front shot of hat.  (It's falling off a little since he was jumping on the bed right before I snapped the pic.  Cheesy)

Extreme action side shot of hat. 

Why is it so hard to get toddlers to sit still for 1 minute.  Wink
