11  Food With Faces PJs! Simplicity 3971 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MirthFairy on: March 20, 2008 09:19:19 AM
I love the way this came out! The fabric it really soft too.

It really is very big on me. I made the medium, not thinking that it was a UNISEX medium. I'm a small person and the set swallows me, but in a good way. Very very comfortable.

Note the candy contrast on the sleeves and collar!  Cheesy

13  Patchwork Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MirthFairy on: February 26, 2008 10:44:27 AM

This skirt started out as squares for a patchwork apron. I realized that I already had an apron and could really use a skirt.

I used this pattern: http://www.jcarolinecreative.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=JC&Screen=PSKIRT and drafted my own fitted waist band, so it would be zippered rather than elastic.

Dunno if I'll do the jacket, as I already have something that will match this set.

15  Re: Dear Reinactors - Tabard Advice? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by MirthFairy on: February 12, 2008 12:08:48 PM
I don't LARP, but I do Ren Faires I made a totally functional "men's" outfit. I imagine that it would be really comfortable to fight in and you could make a matching circle/half-circle cape in lieu of a tabbard. I think that the circle cape is was more kicky. Can be used as a parry weapon too.

The doublet and breeches are from here: http://www.margospatterns.com/
, though it would be easy to adapt a different pattern.

 The breeches are just modified men's pants, with a lot added to the seat, to accommodate my booty. The doublet is a combination of the men's doublet and the lady's doublet. The lady's doublet is meant to be worn over a corset, which negated the costume's purpose of comfort.

You could sub Simplicity 3782 for the doublet, though I imagine you'll want to make a mock up and any pants pattern will work for breeches. All you'll have to do is shorten them and add a cuff.

I also like www.sockdreams.com knee high cotton striped socks. They come in a ton of color combinations.

16  A Santa Lucia Doll (Img Heavy!!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MirthFairy on: December 19, 2007 12:37:27 PM
I know that Santa Lucia day was December 13, but I made this as a Yule present for a friend of mine.

I used a pattern based out of Creative Cloth Doll Making by Patti Medaris Culea. I made the balls for her joints from Fimo. I like that she's poseable.

The buttons are just pearl beads. They do function like buttons, so her dress is removable.

I used branched from a mini Christmas tree to make the chaplet and the candles are made from glittery Fimo.

He hair is hand rooted and French braided. I'm really happy with the way it turned out!

Embroidered sleeve detail.

Corduroy shoes  Cheesy

18  Hot Chocolate 2 Ways! in Dessert by MirthFairy on: December 05, 2007 10:13:49 AM
Mint (or not) Hot Chocolate

1 mug of milk (about a cup)
2 tbs cocoa powder (unsweetened stuff!)
1 1/2 tbs sugar
(optional) 1/8 tsp peppermint extract - don't be tempted to add more. This stuff is STRONG!

Bring to a simmer and wisk ingredients. Serve when hot.

Chocolate Bar Cocoa

1 mug of milk (about a cup)
1 oz of bittersweet or unsweetened chocolate (I used 3 squares of TJ's Pound Plus)
1 tsp honey (or sugar)
sprinkle of cinnamon

Add all ingredients to a small sauce pan and wisk or stir until chocolate is melted. Pour back in mug and enjoy.

19  Chocolate Chai in Dessert by MirthFairy on: August 06, 2007 07:48:37 PM
Verdict: Tasty! Cheesy

Chai (With chocolate option)

1 teabag - any tea, really. Black tea or Chai will make a more traditional drink. Green is really good as well, especially powdered green tea (matcha) . I've also tried mint, which is pretty good too.
1 cinnamon tea bag OR bit of cinnamon stick OR 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3-4 whole peppercorns (optional for extra spice)
1/2 c water
1/4 tsp ginger (or more for more spice. Another option is a slice of fresh ginger added to the steeping tea)
1/8 tsp cardamom
1 tsp Vanilla
2 tsb honey or sugar
2 cups milk (or what ever you like to use as milk)

Bring 1/2 cup water to a boil, turn off heat and steep tea, cinnamon, and peppercorns for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags, cinnamon stick, peppercorns and whatever else you added to the water. Add in powdered ginger, cardamom, sugar/honey, and vanilla. Once combined add milk. Heat liquid to a simmer for hot chai or pour over ice for a cold drink.

If you want to make chocolate chai, add 1 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder before you add the milk.

20  I Don't Think Donna Reed Wore Lime Green... (apron-McCall's 2947) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MirthFairy on: May 26, 2007 11:13:49 AM
Feeling spiffy in my new apron - Strawberries on lime green w/ red & pink gingham. I love it!

woo - Action shot! Makin' pancakes!

The back - I added two sets of button holes so I can wear the straps straight or crossed.

The most time consuming thing on this was the rick-rack and the lace.

(pst! - pocket tute over here:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38097.0 and headband is over here: http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/Headband.html)
