21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pokballs...pikachu go! on: April 12, 2007 04:55:02 AM
Hi everyone,

I did these last night just before bedtime. (I'm sure someone already post something like this, but I haven't seen any.)

My kids (and I, I confess) are Pokmon fans. And they often pretend to be Pokmon trainers...but with regular balls (tennis) so I made these. Their made out of fleece and felt, soft enough to bounce off my baby girl's head if the gets hit by one!  Wink

soooo .....Pikachu Go!!

Have a nice day all  Grin
22  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter egg...with little photo of me on: April 07, 2007 09:06:41 PM
Hi everyone,

I made this tonight for my sister, I'm sorry the photo is not clear my camera focused on the egg.  But anyway it's an old photo of me a thousand years ago.  Actually, it's the photo that inspired me for the egg, the photo was taken in a flower field.

What do you think?
23  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My spidersence tells me...this is cool deoucpaged picture frame on: April 07, 2007 05:21:35 PM
Hello everybody,

Here is something I did a few months ago for my two little boys (they share a room). We had a few spiderman comic books that my 4y/o had destroyed. So I took an old wooden frame and glued all the bubbles (dialogue) around the frame with ordinary school glue, and did a sort of scrapbook image with pictures of my boys and pictures from the comic book..(I hope you are all understanding this, English is not my mother tongue, so I hope this is clear enough...thank god for spell check Grin)

They sure like it and I think it's pretty cool.  What do you think?
24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little monsters on: April 06, 2007 07:52:55 AM
Hi everyone,

I don't know exactly what is a little monster, but I've seen them everywhere!

So here is my take on a little monster!

First, my doodle:

Now, the little monster!

My husband called him..Bloody Buddy!

What do you think.
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My new little thing!! large dresser on: April 05, 2007 05:41:59 PM
Hello everyone,

This is a little something we bought a while ago.  Last summer we painted it white (it was beige before) and we left it on the balcony ALL WINTER LONG!!!
So you can imagine, it was a bit ruined!  Shocked

You can see that some of the drawer won't close....So I decided to take out six drawer and I will make something out of those later, hang on the wall or something...

for the rest..this is what I did with it:

I even did the handles myself with wooden beads:

It will go on the wall in my bedroom near my craft corner.  I think I'll buy a few baby food containers to fill with my stuff like buttons, etc. and decorate them (the containers) and put them on my new little thing!

What do you think?

26  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Wild baby girl on: April 04, 2007 12:35:17 PM
Hello again,

I'm trying to transform the clothes from my boys to handout to my baby girl.  This is my first attempt:

Before A pair of wild shorts

Now A wild skirt

Now I have to make her a nice cute top to go with it!

Any suggestions?

Thanks for looking  Smiley
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / A Backyard feel in my kitchen on: April 04, 2007 06:27:56 AM
Hi everyone,

I want to share my weird but fun idea for my kitchen.

My husband and I put a clothes line in the kitchen to hold the curtains (it's not perfect needs adjustments...still ongoing work).

We also added a few birds. (You can see the brick is actually wallpaper, we live in an apartment..we couldn't put real brick!)

On the other side is our little garden...it's actually our little bar  Wink It's high so the kids won't have access to the alcohol.

Hope you like our weird but fun kitchen!

Revised...I forgot to mention that my husband made the little fence and I made the curtains.... Wink
28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / For my baby girl on: April 04, 2007 05:53:41 AM
Hello everyone,

This is my latest creation and she's wearing my latest project  Wink

Believe or not, I was fooling around with some scraps and my machine last night (I'm not an experienced sewer, I'm learning has I go). And without a pattern or measurements I made her the little dress. Like most of my stuff it's not perfect (still have a lot to learn) but she doesn't care and nor do I.
I think she's pretty in it.

The top (orange) use to be and pair of overall, the skirt part is made out of scrap material from her baby clothes is was keeping.
You have to understand that my baby girl is number 5 and our last kid so I'm keeping every little piece of clothing  Tongue some for maybe a quilt (if I get the courage, I never done one) and some for her dolls.

Hope you like it,  feel free to leave feedback, I'm open to any suggestions or critique.

Thank you.

p.s. where can I find patterns for doll clothes?
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another skirt out of an old pair of jeans on: April 03, 2007 11:59:02 AM
I can't stop myself...when you start you can't stop!!!  That's how I feel right now. I just finished this project and I can't wait to start another!!  Tongue

I transformed another pair of my husband Jeans into a skirt (like my very first post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161109.0 )

This was a very old pair, with holes. 

So in the back, a lowered the pockets, added a piece of material on one side and extended the other pocket to hide the holes.

I also tried to do an appliqu, it's not perfect but I'm pretty proud of myself.
Here is the front.

Now, I think I'll try to do something for my baby girl.  I've seen some very impressive things here, I don't know if I can you as good, but I'll try.  And if I don't succeed, at least I will have fun trying...practice make perfect, right?!

Thank you for looking at my stuff.

Have a nice one!  Wink

30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Puppet Theatre on: March 31, 2007 01:57:41 PM
Hello everyone.  I made this a few months ago for my kids.  It's a puppet theatre.  It's attached to my boys bunk beds.  They also use it as a pretend house.

Thank you.  Grin
