1  Easter dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sam07 on: March 05, 2009 10:20:28 AM
Here are 2 dresses i made last easter. I was very broke, so I used an old dress as a loose pattern and used fabric from my stash. I used scraps to make the applique to add personality.

2  I love a Beret! in Crochet: Completed Projects by sam07 on: January 24, 2009 01:42:24 PM
I made a beret! I had tried to follow a pattern, but just got irritated and confused. I made up my own pattern. The pom pom is removable depending on your mood.

3  I made a pillow in Crochet: Completed Projects by sam07 on: January 21, 2009 04:14:23 PM
I took a plain black pillow, $9.99, and crocheted a "square" design to applique to the front. Hope you like it, I have been crocheting since Dec of 08 and this is a side project to the afghan I'm making.

I have tried clay and paint ( and continue to make those available) but the thing other that drawing is creating "sculptures" from found and recycled objects. She has made swans from bendy straws, 3-d art using anything and everything. Thank you for all your kind encouragement.Here's one final work of art.

This is another finished work by my 8 year old. She drew it while we drove around to furniture stores. Hope you enjoy. Sorry if the image isn't as crisp or clear(pencil art is hard to capture without losing detail and definition)

7  Even more candlesticks! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sam07 on: June 09, 2006 09:29:25 PM




Inspired by previous giant candlestick posting here are more! These are smaller because they are from a coffee table my 8 yr old found in someones trash. This time you can see the before image. I still need to find the perfect candles but I haven't had time to look.

8  My Amazing table leg candlesticks! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by sam07 on: June 05, 2006 02:42:02 PM
Last year when I threw out my ugly, worn dining table I saved the pedestal legs since they were the only part that was wood. My husband tried to throw them out but I insisted that the inspiration would come for them to be reincarnated. Last month I was at Bombay Co and saw these wood candle holders and it clicked- I have just what i need( they wanted $80.00 for theirs). I came home sanded, sprayed black spray paint to create the look of much darker wood(not paint) sort of coffee bean color, put felt rounds on the bottom, and topped with a oversized candle. I made 2 for either side of the window in my dining room. They are 2 1/2 feet tall and I spent a total of 10.00 to make them(candles).

Thanks, I am also thinking of bright colored sharpies (sketch first with pencil). This might give more control and detail. Look at my daughters art to see what I mean.
