1  Felt Coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by limey57 on: November 28, 2007 02:49:58 PM
The other day I was totally stumped as to what to get (make) one of my friends for Christmas. I was the in the thrift store when it dawned on me...felt coasters for her new apartment!  I read a thread about making them a long while back, but couldn't find it, so I just improvised!

I cut five inch squares of felt and matched them together with a different color. I used pinking sheers, but you could use straight scissors if you'd like. Then I stitched in a square around the edges, and make a kind of loopy, zig-zag pattern in the middle of each of them. Kind of had to trim the edges at the end, but easy cheesy because felt doesn't unravel.

Squares to become coasters...


Finished!

Thanks for looking!

At last, my wonderful package from AModernMontra was waiting for me when I arrived back at school last week. It was crazy exciting. Especially because it just got FREEZING in central Illinois. Aaand after putzing around, here are pictures of my wonderful new winter apparel.



The whole package...


Me wearing them! Crazily, they match my coat. Great work AModernMantra!

4  tropical placemat tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by limey57 on: December 07, 2006 07:59:48 PM
While wandering through the dollar store today to buy Hannukah decorations with a friend, I spotted these cute tropical-themed placemats just begging to be made into something. About two hours (though I was distracted by Harry Potter on tv) later and I had a tote!




^My new tote bag in action. That's a full sized calendar standing up in there. As my half finished mittens were a prop, I think my new bag ought to hold my crocheting for the time being. Of course, when it's not reminding me of warmer weather!

5  Following a trend, but...a Monster Pillow! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by limey57 on: November 29, 2006 05:32:28 PM
I couldn't think of what to make my quirky/odd/bizarre friend for Christmas, and then I stumbled across other people making these. Sooooo, I jumped on the bandwagon, and made Dannie a monster! He has back flap so you can pull the pillow out if you so desire...

6  Purdy Curtains! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by limey57 on: September 22, 2006 09:03:40 PM
Last month my roommate and I crafted curtains for what would soon bw our drab dorm room. I waited to take a picture until they hung in all their glory. We're pretty proud of them. What do you think?

7  loft bed ladder ideas in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by limey57 on: January 27, 2006 12:33:18 PM
I live in a college dorm, and as of yet my room seems pretty bland (besides posters and photos and the like). The one thing I'd love to change would be my ladder to my loft bed.  The beds were built by the University, so the ladder isn't "mine" except that I get to climb up it for seven months.  This also means that I can't do anything permanent to it.  Here's a picture of my ladder, as well as my roommate.



I was tossing around ideas involving decoupage or fabric coverings, but I couldn't think of how to a) attach it so it wouldn't be slip-sliding around (my ladder is already difficult to climb down), and b) would be easy to remove in May.

Does anyone have any good ideas of something they've done, or something you just think would be cool?

8  duct tape purse! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by limey57 on: January 25, 2006 09:40:01 AM
I've never made anything with duct tape before, but yesterday I suddenly had the urge to instead of studying.  I just kind of made it up while I was going along, and this is what came out! I'm pretty proud of it, though it's not as impressive as some other duct tape things on here.  I hope to add some sort of picture on it though, maybe a flower or something...

thanks for looking!

9  Fixing cloth shoes? in Shoes: Discussion and Questions by limey57 on: December 17, 2005 01:27:24 PM
I was wondering if anyone could give me insight on how I could fix my shoes.  A couple months ago I bought cloth mary jane shoes from Urban Outfitters and one day, in a hurry to leave, I attempted to put them on without opening the buckle first. I ended up ripping the whole buckle off the shoe and now I can't manage to reattach it.

This is what it looks like...


I'm thinking like a snap of some sort would work, but I just wanted to get some other opinions. Thanks a lot!
