2  Poo dollop in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by solstice on: June 09, 2008 08:35:54 PM

I followed this pattern (http://puchitomato.livejournal.com/16545.html) with a few modifications -- including a few accidental ones, because I'm new to crochet. Thanks for looking!

3  Uber-Girlie Key Rack with Mirror in CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES by solstice on: April 02, 2008 10:22:36 PM
For that one last glimpse before grabbing the keys and dashing out the door...

Perfect for the modern gal on the go!  Wink

Here are the supplies I used:
  • doll clothes/accessories
  • jewelry with metal charms
  • mirror (originally meant as a candle surface)
  • gold checkered photo frame
  • sparkly lips keychain
  • corkboard with cute pushpins (clipped pins off of & used one design for a coordinating keychain using the lips' findings)
  • wire bookmark (bent to make the key hooks)
  • cut-out words from the jewelry packaging ("chic," "sassy," etc.)

Hastily taken "before" pics (I was eager to get craftin'):

Last of all, the receipt:

Thanks for looking!

also, is your stripey rug... curved over something? i keep staring at the pictures and it's giving me one of those magic-eye effects.
Hehe. Actually it's from the same family as this rug:

Thanks, everyone, for your kind words   Grin

5  Can you tell I love red and gold... and thrift-shopping? in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by solstice on: March 27, 2008 12:39:22 PM
Here's is my temporary (3 month) living space that I share with my boyfriend and 4 cats....

I find these dolls occasionally while thrifting/antiquing. The plastic birds were $3 from an antique store. Artwork from http://www.gigposters.com/designer/8662_Andrew_Todd.html.

The dining room set was an amazing Goodwill find, for only $175!

I found 2 of these mirrors at a thrift shop, then days later found the 3rd matching one at a different thrift shop. Weird.

I love these shelves from Ikea.

The Target rug perfectly matches the paintstroke poster advertising my friends' painting show.

Part of my mostly-thrifted owl collection.

A closer look at my hand- (well, machine-) made pillowcases. For the furry ones, I basically cut a long strip of fabric and sewed up the sides. Only 2 seams and no need to hem.

Fleamarket chair with fleabag kitty cat (I kid... I love my Goldie.)

This pad is still a work in progress... I may or may not stitch up window treatments, since we are already 1 month into a 3 month lease (plus, I'm a slacker). I also gotta come up with some focal thing to put above the couch... your suggestions are more than welcomed!

Thank you for looking! -Cate

8  Clip-on tie becomes headband w/bow in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by solstice on: August 07, 2007 02:01:44 AM
Headband made from a child's clip-on tie and a plastic button:

Action shot!

The clip-on in its original glory:

The total cost of this project was about $1, since the tie was thrifted for 50 cents. Thanks for looking!

9  Quick, cheap & easy necklaces: puffy heart, sparrow, anchor in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by solstice on: August 07, 2007 12:42:58 AM
Here are three necklaces I re-worked using inexpensive jewelry and stuff I had laying around:

The puffy heart charm was once part of a keychain ($1.50). I reattached it to a necklace chain I already had.

I removed the anchor pendant from its chain and attached it to a red elastic hairband (hah, no more need for a clasp).

The sparrow came from a pair of earrings (around $3 from the Mary Kate and Ashley collection at Walmart). Though the earrings were cute, I fancied a dainty sparrow necklace instead. So, I attached the wings to a chain using small jump rings.

Here are the original pieces:

Easy as pie... and just about as cheap, too.
