42  Sling inspired by KarmaBaby via Petchy, I think in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Gumption on: September 09, 2008 05:36:13 PM
You know how it goes, you start on one website and the next thing you know, you're 500 miles away, but very happy when you've arrived.

I found the KarmaBaby website, I THINK, after being on Petchy's (or was it Vegbee?) (Africa...or was it India? (recognize the book?))  website with a tute on how to make a baby sling like the one I have.  so, I went out today and bought fabric, and you know how it goes! Cheesy  After searching their website further, it turns out we're in the same town.  Cool.

Anyhoo!  Here it is!  Please excuse the awkward photo-shot.  I was home alone.

43  Embroidered Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Gumption on: August 19, 2008 11:51:03 AM
Firstly, I would like to say "Thank You" for all of the wonderful ideas and inspiration I have gotten from this forum!  Everybody is quite the clever crafter (say that 3 times fast!). 

 I have a 6-month girl, and just recently realized that she needs more clothes (ha-ha!)...Yeah, right! With so many grandmothers doting on her, she'll never need more clothes!  But, since she's taking longer naps now, I have some free time on my  hands.  I don't like to do dishes, so crafts come first!

Anywhoo!  Here is a pair of pants sewn from flannel, and hand-embroidered.  Hope you likee!

Close-up of the flowers:

Thanks for looking!

44  Embroidery Alphabet (lots of pics)**EDIT** with Pattern in Needlework: Completed Projects by Gumption on: August 17, 2008 03:37:43 PM
So!  I started this when I was 6 months pregnant, and now my little one is 6 months old.  Now it's complete...  Well, the letters are all done.  I'm thinking about doing some sort of border around it.
What do you think? 

Finished product:

I traced the design from a print-out using a permanent marker, then back-stitched the outline. It's about 7 inches on each side.

Original pattern from a 70s Craft book:

I hope you like it!

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED your project!!  So, of course, I tried to do it myself.  I mis-calculated the seams, so it was about 1/4 of an inch too short in all directions.  So!! I just made it into a stuffie.  Thanks for the inspiration!!!

And, of course, an action shot with a disposal camera, the stuffie, and my previous camera cover.

Thanks for all of the inspiration!!

As always, I'm inspired by Loveandasandwich, esp. this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=249676.0

So, I made a doll that represents me and my new Bebe.  Hope you like it!  Thanks loveandasandwich.  You rock!

47  Hibiscus Bachelorette T-shirts in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Gumption on: July 18, 2008 02:25:08 PM
So, my friend is getting married soon, so us gals are throwing her a Bachelorette BBQ Pool Party.  Her wedding theme is hibiscuses (sp?).  So I made this t-shirt for her to wear during the party.  And, yes, that's glitter, ha-ha!

One of the games is a frozen t-shirt game:  You freeze wet, folded t-shirts and then you race to see who can get it unfrozen and put it on first.   I bought 12 used t-shirts at the thrift store and then made (many) Hibiscus stencils from freezer paper, putting the stencil in strategic places.  Here are 2 examples.

Hope you like the t-shirts and maybe you could use the t-shirt game idea, too!

48  Beer Hops Stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Gumption on: July 05, 2008 11:41:33 AM
My Hubby and I love beer, alot.  He asked me to make a t-shirt with hops on it.  So, although I don't yet have a pic of the finished project, I thought I would share my drawing for the stencil.  It fits on a full piece of typing paper.  I printed it out onto freezer paper to make the t-shirt.  Enjoy and use it well!

49  Hippie Elephant in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Gumption on: January 12, 2008 04:13:40 PM
I'm totally riding on the Elephant Plushie Bandwagon.  This is the pattern that's posted here, so it's not really all that original.  But, I really like the colors and flowers. 

As a side note and/or word of advice:  when resizing your pattern on your computer, don't just randomly resize before printing.  Make sure you keep the same scale or aspect ratio.  I had a bit of a time learning that the hard way. Grrrr...

50  Ghosties in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Gumption on: January 12, 2008 04:01:36 PM
I was inspired by all of the little monster felties that have been made recently.  However, DH thought these looked more like Pac-Man's ghosts.  I put little chains on them so they can be used as key-chains.  So, here they are, dancing around.  Hope you like them!
