11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Recovering my Vintage Chair on: June 01, 2010 08:36:45 AM
I have this awesome vintage aluminum chair we found at a thirft store years ago. Over time we've had to recover it and repad it. I love how easy it is to do it with this type of chair as all the pieces are uber sturdy and it comes apart and goes back together easily.

Before (It actually looked a lot nicer when it was first done)

After using IKEA fabric

The whole process is at http://solidityofrainbows.blogspot.com/2010/01/recovering-my-vintage-chair.html

Go get a vintage chair!

12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Recycled Crayon Hearts on: June 01, 2010 08:32:11 AM
I'm sure these have been done before but I made these this past Valentines day for my kids and friends. I'm all about spectrums and love, love love the colors.

I also love recycling and making new stuff virtually free.

I also blogged my directions here http://solidityofrainbows.blogspot.com/2010/02/my-heart-melts-for-valentines-day.html
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bestest Friends -Wooden cultural dolls on: May 24, 2010 05:24:07 PM
I've been painting these dolls for my girls for years. Every time I need to put down my first passion, sewing, I pick up a brush and crank out a few dolls.

Each one is completely unique, though some are similar. I tried to really expand on flesh tones and features to make a wide variety of friends.

They come from a single wood turning and I paint them with nontoxic paints and varnish. The first dolls I made over two years ago and they still look very good, even with rough baby play.

14  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Red/Pink baby quilt on: May 24, 2010 05:18:02 PM

This measures 40x40 and I used scraps from a rainbow twirl skirt I was making for my daughter. At the time I had thought I'd make one quilt for each section of the spectrum. I have the blues, greens and purples cut but other projects have gotten in the way. The back is a solid piece and it was stitched all through three layers; top, batting and backing.

15  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Lemon Drop Baby Quilt on: May 20, 2010 07:09:18 AM

I used scrap pieces and white Kona cotton for the front. More scrap for the binding and a piece of yellow chenille for the back. The inside is 100% cotton unbleached warm and natural batting. Measures about 40x40

16  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Recycled Garden hod on: May 20, 2010 06:05:15 AM
a garden hod is a harvesting basket capable of getting wet and rinsing off produce before bringing it in the house. I wanted one. I can't afford one. I have scrap wood and gumption. Hence, my recycled (albeit not very pretty) Hod.

I've blogged the instructions here www.solidityofrainbows.blogspot.com if you need details on how to make it.

19  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Peasant dress freak out. on: August 08, 2009 02:42:38 PM
People have a love/hate view of this dress. Me. I love it. My kids love it. Not so much everyone else. Why?? I mean I guess it's a little busy but, I think it rocks. And really, isn't that what's important? Nod to Vegbee for the peasant top tute that I modified for this lovely vision. Please ignore the juice box it was the only way to get her to sit.

20  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Fixing a mistake with machine quilting? on: August 08, 2009 02:38:05 PM
I made this really cute quilt and when i was machine topstitching the back, batting and top together something shifted and I got a couple noticable wrinkles going on the back. That are now fully quilted into the whole thing. How do I fix this without stitch ripping the whole thing apart?
