31  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / See the progress! 2 children's aprons, lot of pics. on: August 09, 2007 04:10:06 PM
I wanted to make my 3 year old daughter an apron to go with her play kitchen. I didn't have a pattern, and I have very little experience with sewing, but I figured, "Eh, how hard can it be?" My first one turned out... well... really sad. I made it out of an orange fabric that is way too thin, for tie-ons I just sewed on strips of cloth, and the pocket I just threw in the middle somewhere and sewed around it. Here are the results.

This is my daughter, rather unhappy that I'm making her wear this orange apron when she likes the second one I made better.

These are my tie-ons. Yeah... I'm kind of embarassed to even post this.
SO, I didn't like the first one, so the next day, I thought I'd try again using what I had learned from the first one.

Here is a MUCH happier little girl.

I made the shape of the pocket nicer, hemmed it, and was way more careful about how I sewed around it.

Here is the middle of it, so you can see better how I hemmed around it and how it really just looks better in general.
Wish that these pictures were better, but I'm currently limited to my webcam because my digital camera broke. Tell me what you think!
32  COOKING / Dessert / Claufotis! on: August 09, 2007 08:29:58 AM
Clafoutis (pronounced cla-foh-tee) is a French recipe. It can be made with pretty much any fruit at all and is so, sooooo easy. I've made it as a dessert served hot with ice cream, and I've also made it for breakfast and served it plain. (Fruit+eggs? What could be more breakfasty than that?) My picture got deleted, so I'm using one from somebody else's website.

3 c. fruit, your choice (pears, apples, etc. should be sliced or diced)
1 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
pinch of salt
2 c. milk
4 eggs

Spray a tart pan with pam (or use butter) and dump all of you fruit in. Mix your flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl, and your milk and eggs seperately in another bowl. Add the egg mixture into the flour and mix it all together. Then pour it over the fruit. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour. And you're done!

I've sprinkled powdered sugar on top, which is pretty. I've also seen this cooked in a cast iron pan, which looks very cool. I would describe this as somewhere in between a fruit cobbler and a custard. Hope you like!
33  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first attempt at stuffed animals on: August 08, 2007 09:15:27 PM
Well, my goal for Christmas this year is to make everyone I know presents instead of buying anything. There are a lot of kids in my family, and so when I found this old pack of little stuffed animal patterns at a 2nd hand store, I picked it up. They were kind of ugly, so I had to come up with my own embroidery on it and change a thing or two. This is what I came up with. (Sorry for the less-than-perfect photography. I'm limited to a webcam right now.)

You can't REALLY tell here, but the fawn has pink dots embroidered on her backside.

Okay, they're kind of sad, I know. But I'm figuring out how to do them better, and I have quite a few more to do. Next I'm going to do a giraffe. I also think I'll do a few of the fawns because even with mistakes, I thought this one turned out cute.
