1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Pokemon/Pikachu Hats! on: September 23, 2010 11:15:27 AM
My daughter (Yes! Girls love Pokemon too!) turned eight this past weekend and wanted a Pokemon party. I made these little Pikachu hats for each of the kids:

Here are all the kids wearing them. I actually ran out of gold fleece and had to make some green ones:

I found the tutorial (VERY EASY!) on how to make them here:  http://www.tutopedia.com/how-to-make-a-cosplay-pikachu-beanie-hat-secretlifeofabionerd/  I skipped the eyes and the lining...

For more pics from our Pokemon party check out my blog post! It was good fun! http://mamasamess.blogspot.com/2010/09/operation-pokemon-party-success.html
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Fake Cupcakes! on: February 16, 2010 11:33:29 AM
I found a great tutorial on how to make some realistic fake cupcakes. They are made from expansion foam and spackle! They were so much fun to make!

I used the ones with the wire to display my daughter's consecutive birthdays:

You can find the tutorial here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Fake_Cupcakes/  I also added some notes on the tutorial on my blog: http://mamasamess.blogspot.com/2010/02/dont-eat-cupcakes.html

My daughter's 3rd birthday is coming up and we're having a cupcake themed party. I've got so much more stuff to make but here's what we have so far:

Cupcake felt crown:

Reversible cupcake apron:

And a cupcake felt memory game:

Talk about cupcake fever!

Her party is in a little over a week. If you have any do-able suggestion of fun things to do/make let me know! Smiley Thanks for looking!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mermaid Towels on: May 02, 2009 07:05:35 PM
I haven't posted anything on here in forever!!!

I just finished making some mermaid towels for my girls. I saw them in a catalog for $48.00 a piece. I made them for about $10.00 a piece! Instead of using ties I used Velcro. Much easier for the girls to put it on themselves!

Can't wait till summer!
6  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Handmade bibs and/blankets: New Deadline! June 22 on: February 28, 2009 06:44:08 PM
Hi fellow craftsters!

I've been wanting to do something to help a local orphanage (http://www.bariumsprings.org) and thought that having  a "homemade drive" would be a lot of fun. I'm looking for people to help reach my goal of donating 1000 handmade bibs and/or receiving blankets (which is on their list of "needs".) Deadline is July June1st June 22nd - so there is plenty of time to make a bib (or two!) or a blanket. If you would like to join in on this fun adventure please let me know! You can check out my blog at http://mamasamess.blogspot.com/2009/05/drop-dead-deadline-for-bibs-blankets.html for more info and for the reasons why I chose to do this. Thank you so much!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first project to post! Layered tulle twirl skirt! on: November 23, 2007 10:26:31 AM
It's been awhile since I've been able to sew but after getting a new machine & browsing this site I have become inspired!

I made my friend's daughter a layered tulle twirl skirt in pinks and browns. After my own daughter saw it she had to have one for herself!

I purchased the pattern from www.youcanmakethis.com It is the "Layered Tulle Twirl Skirt". Can't wait to make more!

Here's the skirt I made for a friend's DD:

Somewhat of an action shot:

My DD's skirt...she calls it her "Rockstar" skirt!
