1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / happy cloud and rainbow toy on: July 19, 2012 12:35:20 PM
I like this little plush cloud and rainbow because it can be a toy, a teether, or even a nursery decoration for boys or girls.  It's easy to make, and great for using up little scraps of fabric!  I made this one from 100% stash fabrics and scraps.

Thanks, guys, for your kind comments on the tiki hoop and on our hoop wall!  I'll make sure my girls read all of your comments... I know they'll appreciate them!  Smiley  (Maybe they'll be inspired to make even more hoops!)  Wink

I'm SO glad you liked it, Anya Kase!  I snapped a couple of photos before I shipped:  Wink

And I thought I'd share our hoop wall so far!  It's in our classroom (we homeschool) and it really brightens the room.  Smiley  (My newest hoop from Anya Kase is currently being showcased on the living room mantel, so it's not shown on this wall.)

My teens have really taken to embroidery lately, and are very prolific stitchers!  Most of these were created by them.  (The only one I've made is the sacred heart, down in the lefthand corner.)  Wink

We have a few more, waiting to be hooped and hung, and I can't wait to fill up this wall completely!
Thanks again for swapping with me, Anya Kase!  Smiley

Knittychick, I'm so thrilled that you love your package!  (I'm just sorry it took me so long to get it finished.)   Undecided  And Micah -- he is so, so, SO adorable!   The photo of him looking at the ABC book just melts my heart, and made my day!  Smiley 

In full disclosure, I didn't invent the double bag (but thank you for your genius comments anyway!  LOL!)  Knittychick had one in her wist (you can see the original bag HERE), so I did my best to make one that I could manage within the same double-bag idea/theme.  The bags are fairly simple individually; I just made 2 identical (sized) bags, and added magnetic snaps and tabs to connect the two.  The trickiest part for me was the zipper, as I've never made a bag with a zipper gusset like that, and I didn't follow a pattern.  (I made the bag up as I went, thinking of a size that would be good for a diaper bag.)  I probably spent 4 hours alone trying to figure out the darn zippers and get them set just right!  haha!  So if you are good at zippers, this bag would be a cinch! 

Thanks for posting the photo of the nomad swaddler... it looks so amazing, and I can't wait to use it!  Thanks for swapping with me, knittychick!  YOU are a wonderful partner, too!

I LOOOVE that little birdie outfit -- ruffles!  SO cute!  I love the whole owl-y package.  Smiley

I am trying to upload photo's of what I recieved from barbolot but I'm having a really difficult time uploading the pictures. I think my computer is a bit slow so I'll try again later tonight or tomorrow morning. I am so sorry I haven't gotten them up yet. I will get them up within the next 24 hours. I promise!!!! WE love everything though and we've already been getting lots and lots of use out of everything!!!

I'm so glad you like everything, knittychick!  I had such a great time crafting for you and your little ones.  Smiley  I do have some photos, but they aren't very good.... they were taken ~3 am as I was frantically trying to get your package wrapped and packed!  LOL!  But I can post them if you need me to.  Wink

I received THE MOST AWESOME HOOP in the UNIVERSE from Anya Kase!  Seriously, I opened the package, my jaw dropped (for real) and I couldn't even breathe for a full minute.  Trying to take it all in.  It's so perfect.....

The color, the theme, the stitching, the texture.... I love. it. all.

SO FREAKIN GORGEOUS!!!!!  The stiches are amazing.  Some are unbelievably tiny... I'm talking maybe 2mm in length.  Crazy good.

Thank you so much, anya, for this amazing hoop!  I appreciate all the time, thought, and talent you put into my piece.  THANK YOU!!  Smiley
I'm still working on your piece, and I hope it's half as good as the one you sent me.... talk about swap anxiety!  Wink

PS.... if you have better photos, please post them.  My camera seriously sucks at trying to capture how awesome this hoop is!

I received an ADORABLE angel package from missmoppet!  I'm so thrilled with each one, and can't WAIT to see my little guy wearing them!  Now, on to the shirts!

We're having an October baby, so missmoppet made him his first Halloween shirt!  So cute!!

A sweet little painted apple. . . .

A painted and embroidered whale. . . .  adorable!

An awesomely embroidered tattoo flash "MOM" shirt. . . .

And finally, a perfect little flash swallow, too!  I love these SO much!

Thank you SOOO much, missmoppet!  You totally made my WEEK, and I cannot wait to see him in these shirts.  I'll try to remember to post action shots when he arrives.   Kiss

I received a MOST lovely package from knittychick a couple of weeks ago, and I am terribly sorry to be JUST NOW uploading.  Please don't take it as a statement on how much I love and appreciate this package!  (Going on week 2 of sick kiddos.... YUCK.)  Every single item has so much thought, skill, consideration and time put into each one.... I truly, truly appreciate everything!  Now, onto my AWESOME package!!!

I'm planning to nurse our next little baby, and knittychick made me a fabulous nursing cover!  Using my favorite themes (sea critters, and NARWHALS!), plus my favorite colors (aqua, orange and green!), she made this reversible cover with pockets for necessities, or whatever!  It also has an adjustable neck strap, and boning in the neckline so I can keep an eye on baby.  I LOVE it!

Now this next item... I can't even begin to describe how awesome it is.  And I couldn't photograph it well, but I tried.  It's a swaddler that can also be used in the carseat/carrier! (I hope you can see the "legs" at the bottom!)  Genius!!  Also with the adorable sea creatures, favorite colors, and oh-so-soft minky lining!

A set of precious burp cloths, hand painted with our favorite characters!  (Almost too cute to use as burp cloths!)  Wink

And last but not least, she included a nursing-station caddy!  I SOOOO needed one of these!  It's the perfect size for burp cloths, diaper, wipes, water & snack for me, phone, etc. 

My sweet partner also included the left-over fabric, so I can craft more for little one... yay for fabric!  Thank you SO much, knittychick, for being such an awesomely thoughtful partner.  I really appreciate YOU, and I can't wait to use these goodies for our new baby!   Kiss
