1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Octo...nephew on: February 07, 2012 08:41:44 PM
Well, its far from perfect but it was made with lots of love for my nephews first birthday. This was my first ever felt tacking so I think it turned out pretty well. Some of the areas are a little wonky because it was 2:00am and I literally used every bit of thread. I only had enough to tie the last knot with the needle. Sorry my camera takes such bad pictures.

Yes it is meant to be off-center. lol
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Removable wall decals...cheap! on: January 13, 2012 02:24:22 PM
Hey everyone, I came across a tutorial by Queen Mab, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=396675.0 that I just loved. She used spray starch and fabric to create an adorable Christmas tree. I wanted to see if I could do the same to make a design on my bedroom wall. It's not perfect but I like it for my first attempt. I will probably add more elments to it later.

I do have a few notes to make.
I used a satin like fabric which of course shows more imperfections like bumps or places where the starch was a little thick, I don't think I would recommend that type of fabric for a fellow first timer.
 I also had to starch and iron the fabric before I put it on the wall, this helped lay it flat on the wall since its flimsy fabric and bigger pieces.
Lastly, I had to use the iron directly on the fabric on the wall just to dry it quick enough so the piece didn't peel off.
Hope you'll give it a try I think the possibilities are endless! I know I will do it again with maybe more complex designs.
