That is seriousely awesome.  Do the claws scratch or sit funny on your neck at all?  I have a thin neck and I feel like they would almost be scratching right at my collar bone on each side... Huh

The dremel attachments do wonders, but they make special spray paint in lots of different colors including metalic or black that are meant to go right on top of rust (if that was a look you think you'd like).  It also keeps new rust from forming, though if you stay with the bare metal it also comes clear to just stop new rust.

That is super cool though  Grin
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Cherry Themed Baby Shower Set... Letter Blocks, taggie, tote + 1st project post! on: August 16, 2007 01:34:11 AM
Made for a friend's baby shower (her little girl just turned one). 

These are foam and fleece baby blocks that spell out her name...I saw someone else here do this with one block a while ago but I can't find the post again to reference it (sorry!  I suck).  The sides are an ebroidered cherry on black fleece fabric that I found on clearance at Joanne's.  Each block is 4" x 4" x 4" made but cutting two 4" squares of 2" thick open cell foam (the suff in chair cusions), hollowing out a space for a bell in the center, and then glueing two together before stuffing it in the sewn cube.  I machine appliqued the letters on but since the fleece was kinda stretchy it rippled a little.  I think next time I'll deal with it better (PS this is my first pic post so I hope I did it right!):

Next I used the same cherry fleece and a baby pink fleece to make a taggie blanket 14" x 14":

Then I made a big tote out of a clearanced cherry denim (the cherrys are lightly embroidered on it) and some pink broadcloth.  I used a red sqiggly fat quarter to make inside and outside pockets.  I also found a black and white gingham with embroidered cherrys trim, and sewed that onto the Navy webbing that I used for the handles.  The bottom is black cotton duck:

Here it has all the stuff in it and is hanging in my son's room (his walls are a faux finish I did in multi-blues with little metal stars mixed into a clear glaze on top):

And this is a cute dress that went with the set though I did NOT make it.  I found it for two bucks at a thrift store (looks like it was never worn!) and got the little stretchy leggings with lace trim at Walmart  Grin 

I TOTALLY can't wait to give it to her!  There are a lot of little details I wish I had done differently, but over all I think it turned out pretty good for a coordinated set.
