131  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Toddler Nap Pillow on: June 21, 2009 04:01:59 PM
Okay, so this probably should go under some kind of category like "So Easy a Caveman Could Do It" but this is the first time I've used a sewing machine,  so I'm posting it!  Cheesy 
We have hardwood floors and my daughter is always pulling blankets off the couch to lay on on the floor with when she feels like chilling out for a few minutes. So I thought I would like to make her a pillow for the floor.

All I used was 2 pillowsham cases, and 2 pillows. I had to sew one of the the cases so it was 3 inches thinner because the pillow was a little narrow, Thats where the flap came from. Then I just sewed the 2 pillow cases together, inserted pillows, tied the ends, and viola!
She was chilling out on it until I grabbed the camera, then she started dragging it all over the place!
132  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / How do I transfer a pattern? on: June 19, 2009 07:43:15 PM
I cannot draw to save my life, but want to do embroidery... How do I transfer the patterns I want to stitch onto fabrics? Besides using fabric paper, I don't know what to do.
133  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Needlepoint Bead Embelishment on: June 10, 2009 12:28:43 PM
For the Easy Peasy Swap, my partner liked dark greens, and one of her favorite themes was leaves. I decided to try something I've never tried before!

I found some of this fabric, and stretched it over some canvas, and stitched over some of the veins with green floss, and other parts stitched on beads.

It looked so much cooler in my head, but I think I'm still pretty proud of it.
134  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Re-using VHS Tapes on: June 03, 2009 07:41:09 PM
Okay, I have a TON of VHS tapes that I can't even GIVE away at yardsales... I've been thinking a lot lately, what can I do with them? There is a cool table made from VHS tapes on here, but what about the actual tape inside?
135  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Cardboard Furniture Challenge on: May 17, 2009 01:15:37 PM
I've been inspired by a few posts on here to make some cardboard furniture for my parent's room (they are moving here from across the country in a few days, and our guest room is in our unfinished basement). I think that a cardboard furniture challenge would be a great way to introduce a lot of people who aren't on this bandwagon yet, how inexpensive and fun cardboard furniture can be!

Here are some examples from other Craftsters.
136  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Encyclopedias on: May 03, 2009 04:14:14 PM
I recently rescued a set of 1983 encyclopedia's from the curb, and have no idea what to do with them! Initially I tried to call the local schools see if the art departments would want them, but they did not. so... now my husband wants to either see me do something with them, or he wants them out of the garage! Any suggestions?
137  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Decoupaged Children's Shelves (tons of pictures) on: May 03, 2009 03:40:32 PM
I decoupaged shelves for my daughter's room. I wish I had taken pictures before they were done/hung up, but I forgot!
I collected a lot of children's picture books that had missing pages, or crayon markings in them, for free from yardsales/thrift stores/friends, cut out the cute pictures and modge podged them to these ugly unfinished/institution white/and old shelves I found most for a dollar or two. I also painted parts hot pink, or modge podged ribbons on them. All the pictures are from children's books, except for the ones of fairies, those were giant stickers from the dollar store, and by putting the modge on top, I'm pretty sure they're never going to fall off.

These Disney figures my mom actually made for me at a pottery studio when i was little!

138  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 38 ENTRIES / Garbegg Can on: May 02, 2009 08:05:15 PM

Had an unfinished wood garbage can for my daughter's room,that I finally got around to decorating. Spraypainted it purple, then started cutting and attaching eggs. I had a lot of fun doing this!

Originally I was going to make a mural with the eggs in the hallway, so all of my friends started buy up all the Easter Eggs they could find on clearance. I have over 1000 eggs now!!!

So I guess as soon as she gets bored of that.... I'll probably become known as the egg girl on craftster.

139  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Make Yarn from plastic bottles on: February 07, 2009 08:47:00 AM
I've been told you can make yarn from plastic soda bottles, but I have been searching for almost a year now, and have no idea, nor have talked to anyone that knows how to do that. Does anyone here know? Is it something you have to have factory type equipment for, or can I make it in my own kitchen?
