961  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: I made my own bed and headboard...and i am very VERY pleased on: August 21, 2007 04:14:57 PM
Wow, I am so impressed.  I know the original (I've been drooling over it for months, but am also put off by the massive price tag), and this looks *exactly* like it.  Amazing job!

So cute!  I love the ruffled sleeves.  The melded manly/girly style is really clever.

What a great dress!  I will definitely be trying this one.
964  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From Pillow to Clutch (my first real post!)... on: August 21, 2007 11:32:54 AM
I recently updated my couch by replacing my old pillows (which had definitely seen better days) with snazzy new ones picked up at West Elm (hooray for massive sales!).  Of course, firmly believing that those who waste not want not, I kept the old pillows to use as material for future craft projects.  Here is the first transformation - from worn out pillow to cute daytime clutch!

In action!


I didn't have any interfacing on hand, so it's a bit floppy, but all of my necessities fit perfectly.  This was more of a learning project than anything (I'm trying to teach myself how to sew), but I might actually carry it. 

Comments would make my day!
965  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Love your wedding? Then show off your photos here! on: August 21, 2007 06:33:49 AM
Okay, my wedding was two years ago, but I just discovered Craftster and I did love my wedding, so I'm going to post anyway.  Grin

We were on a major budget, so it was a DIY extravaganza.  Our projects included:
-Invitations and other paper products (card box, table numbers, reserved seat cards for the ceremony, place cards, guest book)
-Flowers
-Reception Music (I love iTunes!)
-My veil
-My dress (well, semi-DIY - I designed it and hired a dressmaker to make it; I  don't trust my sewing skills enough to take on that big of a project!).


On to the pictures!

Coming down the aisle as husband and wife!


Waiting for guests to arrive at the reception (yup, I wore blue shoes; they matched the ribbon in my bouquet)


First Dance


Cutting the cake

Our photographer is a photojournalist for the local paper - hiring a working photojournalist rather than a wedding photographer saved us a ton of money.  Thanks for looking!

Cute and environmentally friendly - what a great craft!  Thanks for the tutorial; I might make these for stocking stuffers this year.

I love these - what a great way to use scrap fabric!

This definitely rocks!  Great job.

I love it!  I would totally put that on my desk and play with it all day long. 

Oh, and by the way, you do have a Yoshi, but not the Yoshi.  Yoshi is green, but other members of his species make appearances in other colors.

Needless to say, I'm a geek.  Grin

Ooooh - I love it!  I can't wait to see the final version.
