1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / steamer trunk revival on: February 21, 2008 06:12:07 PM
I decided that my son needed a toy box, but I wanted something that wouldn't be an eyesore in the livingroom... sooo... I took this old steamertrunk that was in really bad shape...

I painted it black with acrylics so it wouldn't stink up the house, and decoupaged the top with some pretty paper... then covered the whole thing with the modpodge

Here are the before's





and after

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Dia De Los Muertos Blanket! on: February 21, 2008 05:44:54 PM
So, my friend's baby shower is coming up soon, and I finally finished her gift.  She loves the dia de los muertos skeletons and I happened to run across this fabric on buyfabricsonline.com (by accident) and this is when I decided to make a blanket for her!  It has flannel on the back and a very thin layer of batting in between... any other suggestions on how to spice it up?  I was thinking those yarn things through the middle of the blanket... it is for a newborn so I probably shouldn't get too fancy...

It's not perfect I know... this is my first project using a sewing machine in years... and my first blanket... and I didn't use a pattern so it's not exact... but it still looks pretty good i think!

Thanks for looking!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / paper mache purses on: December 19, 2007 08:10:17 PM
This is my first time posting on craftster!  I just had a baby and the DA told me I need a hobby.  Since the holidays are coming up I decided to make some gifts for the 4 nieces.  I was at the craft store and found these paper mache purses with photo inserts.  I decided to paint them and stick some cute little characters on them...

Here is the before photo



and here are the finished projects










Thanks for taking a look!
