1  Re: A crafty detective gallery of sneakiness!! in The Swap Gallery by thecleverfox on: May 02, 2009 07:26:47 PM
I received my package recently and was more than impressed! These photos do not do justice at all!

A great little pouch!

This is the cover for a great heating pad (the kind you stick in the microwave to heat up). I have used it already on my shoulder which was sore from crafting last minute smalls for my stalkee! hehe

A small cami and pantie set! They are so well done and so cute on!

and a great shot of the back...

Though it may look like a very full skirt, it's a perfectly full apron!! It has super long ties in the back that make the most adorable big bow! I adore it!  This looks so much better in person!!

Thanks so much to mink_bikini! This was a great first swap for me!! I only hope my stalkee feels as lucky as I do!!

2  Blue button details on a recovered kitchen chair in CHALLENGE 37 ENTRIES by thecleverfox on: April 05, 2009 03:07:32 PM
So, here is my first submission for a Craftster contest!

I had been meaning to recover my kitchen chairs for some time now. Though I loved the retro feel of the chairs, they just did not go with the rest of my decor (also retro, just not with the right colors). So, the button challenge came up, and I was inspired!

Basically, once the chairs were recovered I just glued the blue buttons (with my hot glue gun) to the fabric.  There really was no rhyme or reason to my pattern or color choices. But it was a great way to hide the staples that were holding the fabric in and also added that perfect decorative touch, at least I think so. hehe.
I've only been able to re-cover one chair so far, but have enough buttons and fabric to finish up the rest soon.

Hope you enjoy!

This is the chair before (and my lovely little girl who just always has to be in on the action...hehe):

And here are the afters:
