1  Fathers day car. in Father's Day by Ahren on: July 13, 2012 03:50:07 AM
I was stuck for something to get the hubby for fathers day but came across this car kit in the pound shop. I let my 16 month old go wild with the paints to decorate it and then put it back in the box for daddy to make.

The only trouble was because it was so cheap it didn't come with instructions and was actually quite hard to make! So i ended up doing it cause daddy couldn't work it out!

2  Cat in the hat themed quilt set. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Ahren on: July 13, 2012 03:36:07 AM
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this! We recently decided to theme our toddlers room as Cat in the hat. Its hard to get hold of Cat in the Hat material in the uk without paying a bomb for shipping so i've had to improvise! I bought two metres of each of the fabrics and am planning to use the rest to make matching curtains and a cushion for his book bench.

I made the hat out of red and white fleece so that i didn't have to worry about fraying! I'm a bit jealous now because he has a cooler quilt then we do!

3  Girls aprons. in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Ahren on: April 03, 2012 04:38:10 AM
I made these in Feb because i needed to wip up some quick presents for my sons friends as they have birthdays the same week as him. For the pockets and straps i used fat quaters because i have a bit of a stack of them! (i can never resist getting them)

They are both the same size but this one was for a 3 year old that looks more like a 5 year old and fitted great with space for her to grow.

This one was for a 3 year old who is really small for her age so her mum had to double up the straps, but it means she will have alot of time to grow into it!

4  First attempt at hoops. in Needlework: Completed Projects by Ahren on: April 02, 2012 04:21:25 PM
I have seen these around alot recently and finally plucked up the courage to try and make a few hoops. The first one was a felt version on my family. If i did it again i would definatly draw a pattern on card first! Free cutting the felt was hard.

The second one i made for my mum for mothers day. I wrapped a piece of bandage around a felt person shape and got very annoyed with it as keeping the person shape was a pain! My mum loved it luckily.

5  Changing bag. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Ahren on: April 02, 2012 09:48:27 AM
Since my son was born my mum has insisted on carrying a huge changing bag whenever she has him. Well hes now 1 and i decided she needed to down scale so made this bag that i had previously made for my sister. I made the strap quite short so that it hangs in reach on the pram and also added 4 big pockets on the inside. (although i tried i couldn't get a decent pic of the inside!) My mum is seriously obsessed with pockets.

6  Duct tape wallet. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Ahren on: April 02, 2012 09:38:36 AM
I've been making these duct tape wallets for a few years now and this is the latest. The hubby loves them but his last one wore out beyond repair (having been patched up 3 times) I found this tape at my local pound shop and love it, its so thick and not too sticky.

Sorry about the bad pictures, i accidently deleted the originals!

7  Baby building blocks. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Ahren on: February 04, 2012 03:55:05 AM

A friend of mine had a baby last week so i wipped these up for her as soon as i found out what she was naming him. I am debating making a set for my son but don't know if i can face more patchwork at the moment!  Grin

8  Christmas makes! in Winter Holidays by Ahren on: December 06, 2011 04:19:18 AM
Some of the things i've made so far this christmas:

A christmas blanket for my son. My first attempt at patchwork on the front (a few mistakes but thats what makes it special) and the back is black fleece.

A matching stocking. (its bumpy because i've filled it already)

Cheap n cheerful foam 'Merry xmas' sign.

We got a paint your own bauble set this year but so far we've only made my sons! Hes 10 months old so we sat him on newspaper, blobbed some paint on the ball and let him play with it. (also did the canvas in the pic above, family are getting a canvas for christmas =D)  I then rolled it in glitter before it dried and then wrote on it in sharpie. I'm hoping to decorate one with him each year!

9  Sock toys. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Ahren on: December 05, 2011 04:28:24 PM
I made these a few years ago before my son was born but havn't really had chance to make them since! I'm hoping to start up again now that hes a bit older as i loved making them.

This was an experiment, it ended up kind of lookinglike a rhino, i just wanted to make one with a big head Smiley He is wearing a black hoodie.

This is a punky zebra that was based on one from a book a used to have, think it was called 'stray sock sewing'.

This one is actually made from felt. Its a vault boy from fall out that i made very last minute asa stocking filler for hubby last year.

Last but not least a catipillar, i am planning to make a longer one of these with adult socks as a draft excluder.

10  Mens joker tee to cami/dress. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Ahren on: November 29, 2011 06:48:24 AM

Managed to convinse hubby to give me some of his old tshirts, which resulted in this dress. (sorry about crappy pics)
I got a cheap cami and cut the bottom off. I got hubbys tshirt and cut the neck and sleeves off, then sewed up the arm holes. I then attached the two.
I am actually deciding what else to make out of it because it no longer fits and the cami straps have stretched (hence silly knots on the shoulders!) Sad Not sure whether to try and make a top or something.  Huh
