1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Reupholstered Dining Chair -- Easy Photo Tutorial! on: April 10, 2011 08:37:57 PM
This is great - I am on leave from work at the moment and I want to re-upholster my 4 dining chairs (the same style as your thrift-store find above). I was thinking of using old jeans, as they would be quite hardy and super cute too - but maybe I'll go for something prettier like this...

The Hipster PDA 43folders recommends is just file cards clipped together, because you can add new ones and chuck out old ones anytime you want to. This works the same way - the binding rings are hinged, you just snap them open - and then you can chuck out or add pages as wanted. But I decorated the pages too, obviously. WAY prettier!!!

They arer challenging - so many pieces to work with. I can put on together in about four hours once I have cut out the pieces. You need to have an ironing board close by as you do a lot of ironing in the course of the work!!!

Yep, the tops are clear. You often buy these little tins inside square tins.

Glad you all like them!!

yep. easy as pie, but make sure you glue the top onto it, otherwise they they can fall off.

Hi all

I love the idea of a "hipster PDA" (if you don't know what that is, check out 43folders.com). So I made one for my sister. She can add and remove pages at will and it is covered with beautiful handmade silk paper.

Here is the cover and a couple of pages. If you want to see more, go to http://photobucket.com/albums/d90/clairekelly1977/hipster%20pda/

Thanks for looking!

I am a lifelong insomniac. I made these cute magnets as a tribute to the gods of sleep.



they contain a small amount of an awesome looseleaf chamomile tea that i rely on, a tiny tag, and a sleeping face. the stars are glued onto the outside.

Okay so I am a 7G addict, okay?
You can buy this bracelet blank and put whatever you want on it. I used the background from a spread in a magazine.



Love it!

Hey all!!

I LOVE this pattern. I have made three of these bags now. The first one I made for myself, and here it is:

Front:


Back:


With the tool holder opened up:


Sooo.... the first time it took about 16 hours. Yes, don't laugh. I think the reason is that Amy is really good at aiming her instructions at newbie sewers, and writes a LOT of detail. Good for newbies definitely but I kept finding myself overthinking things.

So, number 2, made for Bells (she's on craftster too):

Front: (you can see the pin cushion which tucks nicely inside the pocket)


Back:


with the tool holder open:


Important note at this point: the instructions say you should use grosgrain ribbon for the tool holder strips, so that's what I used the first time. However, that is dumb. it doesn't hold anything. So for this one and the next one I used elastic which is DEFINITELY the way to go.

For Bells I also made a knitting needle roll and a notions purse.




So here is number 3, for mum for christmas:

Front:


Back:


Amy says you can use either fusible interfacing or cotton batting for reinforcement, but for each of these I hve used the fusible interfacing and a heavyweight (home decorating) cotton.


Anyhoo, I love Amy Butler's patterns. I have quite a lot of them. Tall Poppy Crafts sells some of them in Australia, otherwise check out www.amybutlerdesign s.com and see where you can get them. The bag has EVERYTHING you could want in a craft tote, whatever your medium.

Thanks for checking this out!
