21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / my first and 2nd poppets on: December 17, 2007 07:16:44 AM
Here is my first poppet.  I fixed her neck problem and gave her clothes.  She is un-named as she is a gift to my youngest neice.  Her feet look extra chubby in this photo. It's just the weird angle i was at when i took the picture.

Here is my 2nd poppet.  I finished her this weekend.  I've been calling her Sugar Plum, but who is very in to medieval things so i dressed this poppet in a bodice and chemise.  The bodice is reversable with skull and cross bones fabric on the other side.

Here she is looking winsome

I wish the pictures showed her hair better.  My camera keeps making her color's all wonky.  The yarn is very thick and goes from tan to deep purple to bright blue.  Her eyelids are dark purple as well if that gives you any indication how distorted the colors are in the photo.
22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / hemostats for turning??? on: December 10, 2007 07:01:38 AM
So I've read that hemostats are great for turning small things inside out.  I've been looking into getting one and saw that amazon has a bunch of different kinds.  They have small ones and long ones and curved ones and ones that are bent at an angle and all various different combinations in between!  Is there any one kind that is better than another one?
23  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Orange Stegosaurus on: December 03, 2007 02:03:14 PM
This was the most complicated stuffed animal I've ever made.  It had about a bazillion pieces with all the spikes.  It is going to be a present for a friend's little boy.

I don't know if I over stuffed it, or if it is part of the pattern, but the little dude ended up really bowlegged.

I'm debating if I should tack it down to the body or leave it as is.  Any suggestions?
24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / xstitch stocking on: December 03, 2007 01:46:51 PM
Here is a stocking I made for my husband.  I made the mistake of not putting interfacing on the back side of the linen.  The back has green corderoy.  I had planned on putting some sort of piping on but I got lazy/sick of working on it.

I don't know if you can tell but the candles and their flames on the xmas tree are beads.

My mom made this for me.  I thought I'd share it on here.

26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / halloween cross stitch on: November 01, 2007 11:32:17 AM
Here is a cross stitch I finished last week.  I wanted to do something to get me in the spirit of halloween.  I substituted most of the threads and beads for what I had in my stash.  I still haven;t figured out what I'm going to do with it yet. 

27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / apron on: September 26, 2007 06:28:20 AM
I made these 2 matching reversable aprons early this summer.  Just finally getting around to posting them now. 

Side 1: Big pockets

Side 2: tie pockets (tut from laurasaurus https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38097.0)
28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / headband on: September 24, 2007 07:29:54 AM
Just a little headband I made this spring using heather bailey's headband tutorial from here: http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/Headband.html

I made a few for myself but they don't look nearly as cute on me.
29  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / placemats on: September 24, 2007 07:19:09 AM
I was inspired by ChaeleaAnne's super sweet table runner. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129930.0

It's not nearly as cool, not even by half. I did learn lots of things, so at least there's that. 

This was the first thing I actually quilted with batting instead of flannel. I made it on my ancient craptastic sewing machine that eats fabric like nobody's business.  (The machine is slated to be retired a la the printer on office space.) I feel it is no small miracle that I actually finished one, let alone 4.

The finished strips are 1/2 inch, and it was not paper pieced.  I machine quilted each one differently for experiment sake.  The color combination is weird, but it's so crazy I can't help but giggle when I look at it.  Something much needed at the dinner table when the 2 yr old is screaming/whining/crying/behaving like a 2 yr old.

Hope you like it and its strange strangeness. Cheesy

30  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / more jeans embroidery on: July 30, 2007 04:46:43 PM
I was wanting something Potter-eque to wear to the 7th book release so i added this patch to some jeans i had.  (I had stitched on the butt pockets and posted them eariler here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182476.0)

I used someone's tatoo I found on google as my guide.

The jeans had developed a hole on the other knee so I put a patch of pirate fabric on the inside.  I thought that was kind of boring, so I added the saying to it.

and here's the whole thing:
