21  Easter Egg Sidewalk Liners in Easter by BoatsAndSews on: January 26, 2011 08:33:12 PM
I made these wood cut-outs for my sister-in-law for Christmas. She just got a new house with a yard and I didn't want her to have to wait until next Christmas to decorate it! These are about 1 1/2 foot tall and made out of plywood. Since I was on a time crunch, I put my husband in charge of mixing up the pastels and I am impressed!

22  Gingerbread Girl Yard Art (More Christmas Wood Cut-Outs!) in Winter Holidays by BoatsAndSews on: December 05, 2010 06:38:01 PM
So this is the first time I've attempted to make gingerbread cutouts. I got a custom order for four of them to represent her children and their favorite colors. They are 4ft, 3 1/2 ft, 3ft, and 2 1/2 ft. I forgot to take a photo of the 3rd one because it was drying while I took the pictures.

They turned out better than I thought, and they make me happy to look at. I just hope she enjoys them! I always worry about my customer/gift recipient not totally loving it.

23  (More) Christmas Yard Art in Winter Holidays by BoatsAndSews on: November 27, 2010 04:30:26 PM
Here's another yard art. I want to make a few presents to go with it, and eventually a santa with his bag. I'm just swamped with crafts for presents this year, and I have a few orders for yard art, too! It's a good thing I work the early shift and can do this after work!

24  North Pole Yard Decor in Winter Holidays by BoatsAndSews on: November 15, 2010 08:07:06 PM
I saw this being sold at a craft fair for $42 and there were literally a hundred people in line to get them personalized! When I took a closer look and realized that the stripes were simply red duct tape on pvc pipe, I vowed to go home and attempt the project myself. It is not perfect, and not as whimiscal as the ones being sold, but I think it was a fair attempt!

my latest one!

25  Tibideaux the Turkey in Thanksgiving by BoatsAndSews on: November 15, 2010 07:58:30 PM
This is Tibideaux the yard turkey. He's 99% complete. Just needs to be outlined in black. Smiley

26  Fold-n-Go Pillow and Blanket for Kids in Quilting: Completed Projects by BoatsAndSews on: October 17, 2010 07:30:45 PM
Ok, so my brain came up with an idea yesterday. So of course, the first thing I do is forget about the housework and run to my craft room. I KNOW this isn't perfect. I'd prefer the green to be pink and the pillow to have the fabrics reversed....but I was working with what I had handy. This is my prototype.

This is a toddler/pre-school fold-n-go type of blanket. It is all cotton with a flannel batting. It folds up and ties around the pillow, which has a handle for carrying. It is small, about 28" x 36", but perfect for naptime. I have a few other designs I'm going to try out, too, because my sister-in-law and I are trying to get enough projects done by Thanksgiving or so in order to set up a booth at a Christmas craft show. The prototype took me about three hours (I had to figure out logistics) but I think I can churn these out in about an hour or so now. I figure I can adapt them for picinic blankets and such...Do y'all think they will sell?

27  Halloween Yard Cut-outs! in Halloween Decor and Parties by BoatsAndSews on: October 15, 2010 07:16:23 PM
I free-handed these and my husband cut them out....then I free-handed the painting part. We made them in a hurry last year and they looked horrible, so we gave the new life this season!

28  Whimsy Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by BoatsAndSews on: October 15, 2010 07:01:34 PM
I just finished up this baby quilt made with a Moda "Whimsy" charm pack. It is about 38"x42"....I wish is was a little bigger, but that's ok! Despite the blue, this is a quilt for a baby girl. Her mom didn't want anything tooooo girly in her room. It does have a lot of floral fabrics in it, but I'm second guessing myself on if it looks too boyish. It is backed in a yellow minky fabric. I used no batting, so it is more fluid. Honest feedback is appreciated!

I made up the design in my brain, and I did a wavy line topstich...and this was my first attempt at prairie points. I actually like them a lot.

29  Ruffled Rosette Pillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by BoatsAndSews on: October 11, 2010 05:50:05 AM
Ok, so I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this in....but I couldn't find anywhere else! I hope you enjoy it! Sorry the first pic is kind of blurry, they were taken with my cell phone camera.

I was inspired by this tutorial (http://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/10/ruffled-rosette-pillow.html#more) over at moda bakeshop, but I don't own any jelly rolls and I'm impatient. So I just cut a bunch of varied length strips at 2" wide and followed the directions as stated. I used stuffing instead of a form because that's also what I had handy. It took me about 3.5 hours to make, but if I had a jelly roll it would have knocked a ton of ironing/cutting time off. This is my first time to sew a pillow like this, and I'm kind of proud. It is going to my best friend for her birthday (I saw the pattern and immediately thought of her), so I hope she likes it, too.

30  Down with the 1970s house! Before and After ::SUPER pic heavy!:: in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by BoatsAndSews on: June 30, 2010 07:13:34 PM
We bought a foreclosed home that was built in 1973. I'm fairly certain the living/dining/kitchen/bathroom haven't been touched since. We know it's not fit for a Martha Stewart spread, but we've done all of this DIY style, so we're happy. Smiley feedback is appreciated!
