1  Almost reversible vest in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MommaGreenBean on: February 21, 2008 06:54:53 PM
I had decided to make a vest, thinking that it would be simple.  No sleeves!  But it wasn't quite as easy as I thought it would be, though the fleece was pretty forgiving.

I ended up sewing everything together but the arm holes, then pinning those and just doing a 3-step zig zag around that and as my top stitch. Next time I think I'll try a zipper, but this one is functional at least Smiley

2  Pine cone fire starters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by MommaGreenBean on: August 24, 2007 05:23:45 AM

Pine cone fire starters Smiley I wasn't really sure where it goes, but these are simple to make and are sorta housewares to us.  We heat with wood heat only, and can use these for decoration as well, so here they are.  Smiley Fun stuff!  Great gifts if you know someone with a wood (NOT gas!) stove or fireplace.

5  Felted ball for the babe in Felting: Completed Projects by MommaGreenBean on: June 18, 2007 08:13:26 AM
I wanted to make a felted ball for my baby, I had seen the teacher at a waldorf preschool I worked at a long time ago had made a couple at her teacher's training, so I thought I'd try it.  I'm happy with it, but will try for more subtle colors next time.  It's wet felted, then needle felted, then wet felted again to finish it up.  I thought it was a lot of fun to make, but I broke 2 needles from not paying attention to what I was doing!

K, I did some more Wink Needle felting is FUN, and we were in the car a lot this weekend, so here's what I got Smiley Critiques?  I used way too much colored wool for the flower petals and leaf, but I did better on my next ball (no pics yet).  I needle felted, then wet felted a lil more, then (insert blushing face here) tossed it in the dryer for a few mins to compact it a bit more while it was still damp.

7  Farm yard onesies in Needlework: Completed Projects by MommaGreenBean on: June 11, 2007 08:29:17 AM
I'm addicted to doing these, lol. So fun! I iron freezer paper on the back to stabilize, then use a disappearing ink pen to draw my design, and then stitch over.

Thanks for asking to see!  My husband really usually thinks that my crafting is way cool, but he totally thinks that I'm a nut for sitting here messing with a ball of wool for so long.  Course I found some more jingle bells and had to turn them into felted balls so now I have 3.  the big one is my first one, and the other two are going better; I did them this morning and will most likely add so they're bigger.  I wanna do a flower on the big one, and then do 'night and day' for the other ones, a moon on one side, sun on the other, and I'll do the needle felting for that.  I need to go buy some more koolaid so I can dye some more Smiley

9  Diaper Bags (Image Heavy) in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by MommaGreenBean on: June 07, 2007 03:18:54 PM
So, I saw tutorials on bags when I was browsing last night so I thought I'd try making diaper bags that aren't huge or tiny or ugly or cheesy and actually hold the bottles that we use (Avent, I breastfeed and I like those best because they have the slow flow nipple)

This was my first attempt.  It has a 'cellphone pocket' on the outside that is okay.  The closure is a hair tie, lol.  The bag doesn't have enough structure, but I think will be fine when it is filled.  I didn't follow a pattern for this one.

This one I used this tutorial for, but added inside pockets.  I LOVE it!  I didn't do a cell phone holder because I didn't want to mess it up and I wasn't real impressed with my first attempt at the cell phone pocket.  It does have a spot for 2 bottles/sippies and sunglasses Cheesy  We don't even have a cell phone, I just thought it was a good idea to have a pocket for one on the outside because when they always seem to go to the bottom of the bag. 

I'm getting a snap press and it's going to have a snap closure, that's what the flap is for.  I'm going to use a western pearl snap Smiley So fun!

10  A cute unisex onsie in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by MommaGreenBean on: June 06, 2007 06:44:20 AM
Okay, it's a little small and on a cheap gerber onsie, but I love it!  We want a bunch of kids, and I'd like to be able to pass down their clothes, so unisex is what I was looking for but everything that I've found seems to go boy or girl or be really cheesy.  

Going to try and do an apple tree, moon and stars, and a chicken next, got Carters onsies coming from ebay so they're a lil better quality.

Picture is dark, blah.  

(and off to go post some more so I can post pictures, lol)
