calixita, I love those trees! I'm very jealous - a group of those trees would look fantastic on the mantel!!!

always, love those headscarves - so colorful, and much better than a regular old kerchief!

SapphireMoon, the top is so fantastic!

Thanks! I think you're right with brighter colored crystals ... hmm, that means a trip to Hobby Lobby! Smiley

LOVE those colorful bouquets!

I haven't posted a mini-list before, but I have one posted on my blog:
1. dino shirt for nephew
2. sound fx pillows
3. BSG tote stencil
4. Mutant Enemy tote stencil
5. bubble wrap necklace
6. cord tote and accessory bag
7. agenda cover and tabs
8. wristlet
9. little horror house Halloween decoration
10. sound fx canvases
11. monster ninni (superhero)

A few of these projects aren't included in my posted 50 list. My to-do list of projects is waaaaay too long! Wink

The first five are already complete, so I'm feeling great about July. Add in work-free weekends, and I'm optimistic about my list! I'll be breaking out the sewing machine this weekend, so hopefully numbers 6, 7, 8, and 11 will complete by this time next weekend. I'm a beginner sewer, and cutting material is intimidating. Actually, my sewing machine is intimidating!  Cheesy

Inspired by this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=378142.0

I didn't have enough chain around to make a necklace, so I whipped up a bracelet instead:

(terrible picture - typical Ohio rainy day)

I think the bracelet needs more ... umph ... or something, but I'll add to it later. Maybe some charms or something ...

Anyway, when I fused the bubble wrap, I thought, "There's no way this is going to look like the pictures in the tute. This is going to suck." But once I started punching out the circles, I'm really pleased with how nice they look!

Thanks for looking!

The sound effects pillows are finished - hooray!


Since my stenciling supplies were out, I whipped up a quick design on a shirt for my nephew (a bonus project - not on my list):


The pillows were fun - first time using the zipper foot on my machine, and first time sewing in piping!

My nephew is obsessed with dinosaurs! I've had this child's red t-shirt around for forever, left over from a prior craft project. Since I had all my stenciling supplies out anyway, why not stencil a dino shirt, inspired by all the other cute dino shirts out there?


Thanks for looking!
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From T-Shirt to Pillow Cover! on: July 03, 2011 10:12:52 AM
I've recently redecorated our guest bedroom in a superhero/comic book theme. While searching for inspiration, I found these awesome pillows: http://www.jellio.com/store/pillow.html#. The bad news? They're $60. Each. Yikes.

I've had these plain t-shirts for a while, leftover from another project, so I decided to use them to make my own sound effects pillow covers:



Close up pictures of each pillow:




Sewing them was an adventure. My first time sewing piping and my first time changing the foot on my sewing machine and using the zipper foot!

All three pillows were supposed to have envelope backs. I won't lie - there were some cross words when I realized I cut the yellow shirt incorrectly! The yellow one had to be sewn closed after the stenciling like a regular old pillow. Both red pillows have the envelope back though!

Creating and using the freezer paper stencils was fun, too. I always love peeling the stencil off for the big reveal!

Thanks for looking!
