1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Epi-pen case on: February 09, 2013 06:48:55 PM
After an exhaustive search for a tutorial to make an emergency allergy anaphylaxis kit and coming up dry, I designed my own. It features a main pouch that will hold 2 Epi-pens, a couple doses of Benadryl in a zip pocket (I'm going to put in a couple diphenhydramine Unisom fast melts), an emergency plan sheet behind the Benadryl and a little clear pocket for emergency contact info. I hope someone can use this to make their own case. They're pretty expensive to buy and I was able to make this from stuff I had on hand. Sorry a couple lengths are in inches, but the rest is in cm.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first knitted sweater on: September 10, 2007 09:59:24 PM
I just need to add the duplicate embroidery to complete the snowflake on the front and then block it.  This is my second real knitting project and I didn't mess it up too badly.  I won't point out my errors, though.   Cheesy  Here's a pic.

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Travel number tin on: May 31, 2007 04:23:38 PM
A great craftster sent me some of the cell phone number pads she had and this is what I did.  This is only one set and I have another set I want to use, too.  The plan is that it will be for doing simple math.  I'll probably have to come up with some math operators to go with it.  I also have to use a different glue.  I used the same glue as for the letters for the spelling tin I did (which were hard plastic) and the magnets don't stick so well.  The tin came from someone my HD works with.  How cool is that?!

4  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 18 ENTRIES / Arrrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhh! The making of a pirate hat. (lots o' pics) on: May 01, 2007 09:25:44 PM
I've been making a lot of these lately.  The last time, I finally took pics of the process.  I'll start with the finished product and then start at the beginning.

DD is really, really into pirates.  This is just one of the many pirate themed things she has.  This is modeled by DD.

Pattern all cut out, it's all one continuous piece with the designed machine embroidered from my own scanned design:

The crown portion sewn together and the front and back flipped up and pinned:

Stitched all around and the sides pinned in place ready for topstitching:
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Travel Spelling Activity on: April 25, 2007 10:17:23 AM
This one isn't completely done because I haven't decided how to decorate the outside of the tin.  Basically, it's an Altoids tin with letter beads.  I don't think I'll keep the little divider in the bottom, I just wanted to try it out.  I sanded the back letters off all the beads and glued a super strong mini magnet to the back.  So far I've only done one alphabet worth.  There are a few beads missing from the pic because they're still drying.  I could only do a few in my workspace at a time because I needed to keep adequate space between them or they're attracted to each other.  I made that mistake once.  I now have 2 magnets permanently bonded to one another.   Undecided

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / 3D Scrabble stickers question. on: April 24, 2007 01:34:22 PM
I want some tiny scrabble pieces and I've seen something online called "3D Scrabble Stickers".  Are these like little scrabble pieces that have adhesive on the back or do they just look 3D?    Sometimes it's so hard to shop online.
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Gluing plastic beads to rare earth magnets (metal) on: April 21, 2007 10:27:12 PM
What is the best way to do this?  I want to improve DDs "spelling" tin.  Right now I just have printable magnetic sheets with letters printed out and cut.  Ultimately, I want to take plastic alphabet beads and glue those little, tiny, mighty mini type magnets to the back.  We've got Elmer's (not my first choice), Gorilla glue, hot glue and DH probably has some 2 part epoxy in the garage somewhere.  Anybody have experience with this?
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / I don't understand swap sizes on: April 14, 2007 10:11:56 AM
There are a few swaps that say to include a small, medium and large item.  What constitutes an item of each size?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddler bath wrap from old towel on: April 13, 2007 11:14:54 PM
DD was always so cold when she got out of the bath and when I'd wrap her in a normal size towel, it would invariable drag in the tub and get wet.  So I cut a towel in half and made 2 wraps for her.  Now she can be wrapped and not be so cold and keep her towel nice and dry.  It only comes down to her ankles.  Here's a modeling pic.

10  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / A tiny bit of dyeing on: April 13, 2007 11:08:38 PM
I needed some yellow wool to make butter for the pancakes I made DD so I used some Easter egg dye to dye some off white wool flannel I had.
