1  Dr. Seuss nursery *img heavy* in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Chronicdoodler on: July 14, 2009 08:10:17 PM
This summer I took a week vacation to Pennsylvania to visit my brother and fiance. In this short period of time I had agreed to paint their baby room. So for a few late nights I put my nose to the grindstone and banged this room out in a few days Grin

I am very proud of it and I hope y'all like it too.

2  A week vacation= refurbishing my room :) (img heavy) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Chronicdoodler on: October 01, 2008 12:53:09 PM
I have a week vacation so I have been renovating my room for two reasons, one my mom has been complaining my room is too cluttered and oh so subtly suggests I get rid of my oversized dresser I nabbed from the side of the road, and two I just wanted to personalize my room more.
 And I am so happy with it, I just wanted to share.

First up is my headboard, which I actually designed a few years ago and made with my dads help. So it isn't a new craft, but I thought y'all at crafsters would appreciate it. This headboard set up the garden theme for my room.  I reclaimed the wood from shipping containers from my dads factory.

My room also doubles as my craft room, so I moved my craft furniture to the nook where my bed used to be.
and here is the before image of the dresser I love and my mom hates.

I removed the hardware and painting it red with a black burmish, and sanded, primed and repainted the dresser with bird details.

here is a detail of it.

(in this view you can see my two prized possessions. A hand painted vase made by my great grandmother, and a singing bird music box that belonged to my late grandfather.)

lastly, is my new pine chair which I also found on the side of the road. which I refurbished and added a Audobon color plate that my grandma tried to toss a year ago. You can also see a pin cushion peg board inspired by a fellow craftster. Seen here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228026.0

Thanks for looking crafters Smiley

3  Domo-kun Plush and tutorial in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Chronicdoodler on: January 04, 2008 10:17:46 PM
This plush is completely hand sewn. Mostly because I haven't been feeling well and I wanted to relax on the couch.

I had actually made him before, and much larger scale for a friends birthday gift, but I always forget to take pictures. I have three futurama brain slugs floating around without pictures >_<.

So anyways, I wanted to share him and the template for the domo-kun and a tutorial. happy sewing Smiley

4  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Plushies :) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Chronicdoodler on: January 02, 2008 06:05:05 PM
This is my first submission to craftsters. This place has been a great help in my construction skills and I find myself coming here for inspiration.

I am a relatively new sewer and have only been at it since last march. I mostly started so I could make the plushies below, which took several months of honing my skills to figure out the pattern Smiley. But now I make plushies, bags, hoodies, skirts, headbands, pillows, etc etc. Whatever gets into my little head Cheesy.

<b>if You would like the template for the Turtles it can be found at my deviantart account, its in PDF so I can't post it here. </b>

Its made with fleece and polyfill, with some sculpting on the face and feet.

Poor Raphael was made second and he came out an inch and a half shorter then Donatello XD. I realize now that I made him with the stretch going left and right so he game out pudgy. But I like pudgy so I highly recommend it. However,Make it with the stretch vertical and it is slightly taller, and able to stand on its own.

So yeah. I hope to submit some more projects once I get the photos of them.

Thanks a lot craftsters.org!
