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

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 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.

Inside of bag.

I modified the old bag lady's fish bag pattern from crochetville.org to look like a goldfish and fit the cotton yarn.
8  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?
9  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
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My First Socks! on: May 18, 2007 07:28:52 AM
I've always wanted to knit socks, but I'm intimidated by DPNs. So, when I found a pattern for two needle toddler socks by a bunch of crazy kiwis (sorry I can't seem to find the link anymore), I thought I would give it a try.

The pattern worked up easily, but because it uses chunky yarn the socks came up looking more like booties.  I don't think they will fit nicely under my DS's shoes.  Cry  Also, the seem up the bottom of the foot and back is really ugly. (I may have done this part wrong. I've never sewn a knitted seam before.  Embarrassed)  

Anyways, my DS likes them, they fit him well, and they are always nice for around the house.  So, not a total loss.  Though, next time I think I'll pull out those DPNs.  Cheesy

Here's the pics:
