21  Re: I need new ideas!--please post your homemade ornaments in Winter Holidays by Lrschic on: November 15, 2008 09:20:23 AM
Here's another idea I had: polymer clay snowpeople! I don't think that you can go wrong with polymer clay!

22  Plushie Polar Bear for Baby in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Lrschic on: November 12, 2008 11:56:02 AM
I've finished my nephew's Christmas present-- a stuffed teddy bear! Since he's white,and wears a scarf, I think we'll say he's a polar bear. Smiley

Close up on the face

He even has a tail!

I was inspired to make this bear when I saw the cute cuddly made by Flickr member Geek + Nerd.

24  You're a great pumpkin, Charlie Brown! in Halloween Decor and Parties by Lrschic on: October 31, 2008 09:54:08 PM
While looking for pumpkin carving ideas I saw this book on my nephew's shelf.

I thought that Charlie Brown's face would make the perfect jack-o-lantern!

I guess that I forgot to take a photo of the carved part in full light. Oh well. What do you think?

25  Queen of Hearts Costume in Halloween Costumes by Lrschic on: October 31, 2008 09:49:53 PM
For Halloween I made a Queen of Hearts costume (inspired by the Disney version) out of my senior prom dress from 4 years ago.

This prom photo (forgive the scan quality) shows the top of the dress and the bow at the waist.

I removed the bow and put a heart there for the costume.

It had a split front that I used to insert a gold and black checkered panel to resemble the character more.

(I wore the red sweater because the dress is strapless and it was chilly for that!)

Here I was checking the fit of the panel.

I put binding on the edges and then sewed this onto the dress front underneath the white flaps.

I really wanted to make a high white collar and red cloak, but I ran out of time!

I made my sceptor...

...and added hearts to a crown from a novelty store.

Here I am posing with my boyfriend.
 Grin Happy Halloween!  Grin

27  Easy Ghost Pin in Halloween Decor and Parties by Lrschic on: October 15, 2008 01:33:06 PM
I got the idea for this easy ghost pin at a thrift store. I saw some for sale, and my mom said, "You could do that."

The one that I'm modeling is made from cotton fabric.

My mom is wearing this one made from tulle.

For a tutorial, check out my blog post.

Thanks for looking!

28  Fabric Scarf Holder, just in time for Fall! in Completed Projects by Lrschic on: October 06, 2008 11:20:17 AM
I wanted a place for my scarves that didn't take up much space and was easy to reach. I decided to make a fabric holder for the back of my bedroom door. It's great because it doesn't hinder the opening of the door, and now my scarves won't be getting wrinkled in a drawer somewhere.  Grin

I just attached ribbon loops to a rectangle of fabric. Then I attached the finished holder onto my door with a staple gun.

For more information, check out my blog. I posted a tutorial there.

Thanks for looking!

I'm going as the Disney Queen of Hearts. Smiley I bought my crown from a novelty store and it is glued to a headband. I added cut-out felt hearts to it.

Photos just so you can see:

I think gluing felt or paper to a headband is a good way to go.

30  Recycled Alli pill box in Completed Projects by Lrschic on: August 23, 2008 11:16:56 AM
My mom take alli, the weight loss help pill. Each supply of the pills come with a plastic box. There is a see-through lid, and the box is a good size. It's about 6 1/2 inches x 8 1/4 inches, and goes 2 1/2 inches deep.
It had stubborn stickers on the front and bottom of the case, but I eventually got them peeled off, and mostly not sticky.
Anyway, I decided to use it to display seashells that my boyfriend and I picked up on vacation in Florida.
It's wrapped with a bow becuase it will be given to him for his b-day. I did tape the lid on, but he can remove it if he wants.
