1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Billy Bookcase on: October 20, 2009 03:44:18 PM
I needed some new bookcases so I went for the IKEA Billy Bookcase in white as it is the cheapest model in the UK.

I also bought metres and metres of the white IKEA fabric with green and black birds on it, I plan to use it in the kitchen too.

It took me an entire afternoon to build the bookcases and apply the fabric (possibly due to all the tea breaks I took).

I covered the backboards to the bookcase with the fabric, I used adhesive spray to hold the fabric in place.

The hardest part of the whole process was actually sliding the fabric covered boards into the bookcases without them getting stuck or the fabric bunching up, but I managed it in the end.

I really love the end result, the tops of the bookcases are now covered in plants too! I need to take another photo to how this.

I have to go to a 70's night on Sunday and haven't a clue what to wear. I could make something (within reason due to time constraints), any cool suggestions please? Smiley

Hi folks <waves>

I have made my bf a zentangle as he is going away travelling for a month.

I have left some space for a quote, however, I'm not sure what to write.

Any suggestions?  Huh
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilt Top Finished - What Next? (with pics) on: June 16, 2009 02:16:42 PM
Hi everyone

What a great forum! I love looking through everyone's work here.

I am halfway through making my first ever quilt! Don't think I have ever sewed this much. It is for my BF his birthday is in 2 weeks.

I have finished the top. I am grateful to all the members here without this website to read and be inspired from I would never have even started it.

The question is? What next? I am unsure what to do. I have a lovely fleece blanket that I wish to use for the back. Should I just sew the top to the blanket? Should I add wadding? I am constantly worried about messing it up!

I don't have a very fancy machine, just a basic a workhorse.

Here is what I have done so far...
