1  Dollhouse Furniture in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lasandri on: January 27, 2013 10:42:02 PM
I've been away for a very long time but it's cool to be back Smiley I'm also happy to share my latest.
We gave my daughters a dollhouse bookcase (bought) for Christmas but I was determined to do the furniture myself. I love the simplicity of Waldorf playthings, so I sort of styled these in that manner. This is an in-progress shot of the kitchen and part of the living room. I used balsa wood and lots of online tuts, lol. More to come!

4  Adult: The (baby) Monarch Butterfly and the (mama) Twig She Landed On in Halloween Costumes by lasandri on: October 31, 2007 11:46:30 AM
Originally posted here.

I made everything here except for two things: the baby carrier itself, which i did not feel comfortable making myself, as my baby's safety is my number one priority. However, I did make the skin that went over the baby carrier Smiley I also didn't make the tracksuit... i hope that doesn't disqualify me!

Here we are, The Monarch Butterfly and the Twig She Landed On:

The skin by itself:

Us together in full costume:

Teeny tiny antannae for my little bug, hand crocheted by me:

Overexposed side view:

i don't know if I should be in the child's or adults' contest, since technically, we are a tandem costume, but since my baby is 5 months old and those bracelets aren't going to fit her for another at least 5 years, i was wondering if i could enter the adult costume contest?

5  The Monarch Butterfly (and the Twig She Landed On) in Halloween Costumes by lasandri on: October 31, 2007 01:38:40 AM
I don't much have time for anything anymore, what with a 5 month old, grad school, contract work and personal swaps, but Halloween is a must in this house.  What's more, it's my little one's FIRST halloween. so she HAD to be well costumed Smiley We originally had a chili pepper costume made by the fabulous ptarmic wampus that we got in a swap but as my little girl is tall and lean she's both swimming in it width wise and too long to fit in it properly (don't know how that happened!) so i decided to make her costume myself. so i made her a Monarch Butterfly. And I'm the Twig She Landed On. Cheesy we debuted it at the Boo at the Zoo SF last saturday! it was a hit. also, i decided to make it to fit one of her baby carriers (a beco) and it was super comfy for her 'cause all she was wearing was a long sleeved onesie, some babylegs, and a black socks. here it is!

The full costume (i'm wearing a brown tracksuit as my twig costume):

She wore an antennae headband, crocheted by me:

Overexposed side view, but it shows the beco really well:

Another at the pumpkin patch:

We'll be wearing it tomorrow night too for her first trick or treat night! Smiley
