I'm salivating. Great job. Really beautiful.

Man, I think that looks great. Did you just happen to find the right size map or did a few places get cut off?

And in regards to using markers to play games... well, that just rocks. Not creative? No way. Post your desk, too. Let us know how it turns out.

Oh, and just another idea: you could get pictures you've taken and blow them up at kinko's (or, if you have a mom with a huge plotter printer, like me, you can beg her to do it for free). Then you'd have a bunch of pictures to rotate in and out of the coffee table/desk. It'd be like framed art you put a remote or bills on!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Suggestions for covering up ugly sconces? on: February 24, 2005 07:38:01 PM
I've heard about many people making successful sconces using rice paper. If you're worried about it being a fire hazard, maybe you could put some chicken wire to mold a large enough covering, keeping the paper far enough away from the lightbulb.

Here's an article to get you started:

Oh, and if you're looking for amazing decorative papers, check out Michael's scrapbooking aisle. You can buy pads of beautiful paper (choose brights, blues and greens, reds and yellows, neutrals, etc.) that may be perfect for this project.

Good luck!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My Take on the "Vagina Pillow" Issue on: February 24, 2005 07:32:07 PM
After seeing a vagina pillow on craftster, my twin sister begged me to make her one. I sketched the design from the original v-pillow onto a gap stretch favorite t-shirt, followed the pattern with normal thread, cut part of each section on the wrong side of the pillow, stuffed each section and sewed up the cuts, and went over each "seam" with embroidery thread. I sewed a "back" onto the pillow out of pink satin to make it slightly more round. I finished it off with a suggestive little key.

My friends and I enjoyed the official pillow presentation during my (our) birthday dinner. Unfortunately, the other patrons of "The Grapevine" were slightly less amused. I'm thinking of making these to sell at local V Day festivals. If the profits were to go to non-profit groups, how much do you think people might pay?

Thanks for looking!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: clutches & more clutches! oh my! on: February 24, 2005 11:20:26 AM
Those are beautiful. I am uber-impressed. So, did you find those fabrics or did you silkscreen the pattern? Also, do you have a good pattern for making clutches? I've been attempting but without much success thus far... But seriously great job!

So over winter break I had some time on my hands. Armed with my mom's vintage sewing machine and some old napkins and placements I found at the Crate and Barrel Outlet store, I got to work. Here are the results:


Let me know what you think... I'm planning on making a few more bags and a pair of polyester high-waist disco pants soon.
