1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / HELP!! Desperate - need idea for baby gift, Dr Seuss theme, done Jul 10 on: June 24, 2010 10:49:18 AM
A friend, tho not a very close friend, is having a baby shower in July.
She is a good enough friend that I want to make her something, and she loves hand made crafty things.
She is having a boy, and is doing Dr Seuss themed nursery - primary colors, etc.

I was going to make her a quilt, but now I dont think I have time, and I know of at least two other people who are crocheting blankets (to which her response is, 'what will I need tons of blankets for?')

I can do just about anything, but I am completely uninspired.
paint onesies with Dr Seuss quotes?
paint something on canvas?
a blanket of some sort after all?
thank you cards?
knit or crochet a silly long red and white striped hat?

I dont have kids, and she is a first time mom.

anybody interested in making one small thing with a dog theme?
you could specify whether you wanted something FOR your dog, or if you wanted it to have a dog theme.

Remember, 'small' means:
By Time
-Small = 2 or less hours
By Size
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks
By Price
-Small = $10 or less

Are you interested in something quick and fun and dog themed?

Anybody interested in doing a collaged postcard swap?
something like an ATC but bigger, 4x6 or 5x7 ish size?
something easy, quick, satisfying... its fun to get goodies in the mail!

I'll put you in groups, so you craft 5-6 and receive 5-6?

you can collage, paint, draw, sew... anything mostly flat.

would you want to send something you like/make, or would you want to make a list of things you would want to receive?

this would be my first shot at organizing, so make suggestions... be kind. Kiss

Amazing!!! You could tie it insead of quilting, then you do not have to wait forever. If you backed it with polar fleece, you would not have to "fill" it. You just use yarn and tie a knot every few inches

YES! I do this all the time. It looks great on 'scrap' quilts whether they are actually scraps or bought for the purpose.
If you have enough, you can fold the fleece backing up and over the front to make a kinda self- binding.

When I have to decorate REALLY COOL things like this, I always think about where it will be.
Are you going to take it to an isolated campground in the trees? perhaps then you would want to paint it earthy colors so it fades into the natural beauty of your surroundings?
are you going to use it with a group of people? perhaps then you should paint it a recognizable color so its easier to find.
a dark color will retain heat of course, a light color will reflect more heat.
will you be using it mostly during warm or cool weather?

having said all that, I would paint flaming bunnies on it, like mac, bloo and cheese on Foster's Home FIF.
"Shut up. At least the bunnies are on fire."

I have received an absolutely fabulous, knock-your-socks-off dotee from LadyBags!!!

My 'Beach Babe's face!!

the funniest thing is that I have red hair, and this is exactly what it looked like this morning!!
Note the fab star earrings, and groovy shades.

She'a got her beach bag all ready to go, with a magazine, sunblock and rolled up towel!

Very cool, go-with-anything gold flip flops!

Such a cute bikini. And the belly button! Wow!

She is really, really fab.

the pictures don't quite do her justice! She is so frickin cute! So well made! I love her! Thank you Stacia!
Its obvious a lot of thought and effort went into this. really, really well done!!!!

I have received the cutest little dog friend from VeganPickles!! He is the cutest.

VPickles made me EXACTLY what I asked for, and what I like dogs, anything green!
I also asked her to put a hanger on his back so he could safely live on the wall out of reach of dogs.
Sometimes dogs play too rough!

You can see how he is constructed VPickles glued his seams, they are not sewn a technique I would have never thought of!

I introduced him to my dog Buddha. It's a good sign that she lets him share the couch!

She can be grouchy, but she has been tolerant so far.  Wink As long as he doesn't try to eat her food, they will get along just fine.

We went for a ride in my truck

We went to the park, so he could pee on all the trees, like little boy dogs do...

Of course, we had to stop at a fire hydrant and pee on that too...

Here he is hanging up on the wall. I put him near the door, so he can welcome guests.

He has inspired me to make a little dog bone dotee to keep him company up there. (after I finish up my dotee swap!)

CUTE pink dotee ladybags! (and audio!)
I think Audio has found her new calling: Expert Dotee Creator.

I too, am looking for a new job after I moved. I'm glad to hear someone somewhere is hiring!
