115  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / new cast, new image on: June 25, 2011 07:58:41 AM

for those of you who saw my first cast, this is a radical swing the other way!  From 70s cutesy to 90s goth!  This was even more fun to decorate!! 
116  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / a bad time to swap- when you are out of town for awhile! on: June 22, 2011 01:01:44 PM
I have had to resend things twice in the past few weeks because my stuff seemed not to be getting there. Only to find out, after resending, that the person was out of town or out of the country for a long time. (several weeks.) I think that if you know you are going to be out of town for most of the swap, you should either say this up front so we can all be warned, or wait for a better time to join a swap.  thanks for listening.

117  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Fathers Day Card on: June 19, 2011 06:14:43 AM

I just finished this card for my dad. He likes to feed the munks at his doorstep. so do it at my own doorstep. It came out fuzzy in the pic but you get the idea...
118  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I couldn't just leave it BLANK, now could I? on: June 12, 2011 06:55:43 PM

My newest piece of "clothing" is my  hand cast. They gave me a blank slate to work with, so I kept it simple with daisies. I love retro colors like these - brings me back to the 70s when I was a young whippersnapper! The hand is sore, but getting better...

120  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Easy-Peasy cat bed with tute! on: April 22, 2011 08:36:02 AM

Your kitty will love you for making this enticing cat bed, and it cost me only two bucks - prolly will be the same for you if you have stuff around your house like I do...

Two small blankets - throw size, can be quite ragged, as they are just stuffing. I used a crib quilt for one of mine, a lap throw for the other.  They were just in my linen closet, never being used.
One pillowcase- regular sized
A second pillowcase - either crib pillow sized or small square pillow size (my first purchase, fifty cents at Goodwill)
A length of elastic or any other substance like sewing tape, I failed to measure mine, but maybe used one and a half yards. I went to Goodwill to get what I thought was wide elastic. The label had come off the box. It turned out to be some odd maybe medical tape or something. i used it anyway and it worked fine.
A medium to large safety pin
The closures of your choice - I wanted to use snaps, but had none. I used what I had, which was hook and eye.
A roll of cello wrap, I got mine at the dollar store for, yup, a dollar. It will actually say Cello on it. Or you can use any other plastic you have around the house that MAKES NOISE WHEN TOUCHED, like crackle*crackle.  Cats adore it for some reason.
Assembly -

fold your first blanket, the smaller of the two if possible, and stuff into smaller pillowcase.

shove that into the bigger case. it will be your "base" for the cat to lie on.

Fold your second throw LENGTHWISE

Roll it into a long log shape, beginning at the two edges, so they are hidden when you look at the roll.

Form your log into a circle and pin ends together. Does not have to be very neat or catch all material - just keeps the ends basically together.   Your cat will not wrestle with the bed like a dog might, so it should not come off.

Beginning IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR LOG ROLL, NOT NEAR THE ENDS, wrap your elastic/tape/whathaveyou around and around your roll until it gets to the beginning again.


sew on the hook and eye, or snap or whatever to each end of elastic, and fasten together. Do not stretch your elastic much, or it will result in a misshapen roll.

My closure isn't even very pretty, but it just has to work.

insert your roll into the big case, on top of your base pillow.

Cut a piece of cello twice the size of your big case, fold in half, and insert into case, on top of roll.  I used double amount to make it extrie crinkly and my cat approved.

punch the pillow down a bit to form a nest area in the middle of your log roll circle. I chose not to put closures on the open end of my big pillowcase, but you certainly can, if you worry about the innards spilling out. Above all, do not put your cat in the bed or he/she will probably snub it, as that is how cats are. Just let her discover it.
That's it!  Hope you can make some use of this el-cheapo tute!     Meg
