21  A Woodland-ish Wreath in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by SpunK on: June 03, 2011 09:16:06 PM

I'm half satisfied with this project.
I really wanted to reshape the wreath.
I soaked it for days and nothing happened.
Does anyone know what I may have done wrong?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

22  mother's day tube shawl/scarf. in Knitting: Completed Projects by SpunK on: May 04, 2011 05:13:28 PM

a mohair tube scarf, inspired by Leigh radford's "Alterknits",
that i knitted for my mother.
the fabric inside is a bed sheet
from montgomery ward. which i cut down and hemmed.
(my grandmother used to work there).

i used three balls of rowan kidsilk haze in a discounted color, and casted on an obscene amount of stitches.
it took forever.

23  coffee filter wreath in Winter Holidays by SpunK on: January 10, 2011 04:53:10 PM

i can't stop making coffee filter wreaths.
(i have already made four.)

i want to make one for every holiday.

there is something magical about glue-ing coffee filters to paper plates.

26  floor pillows. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by SpunK on: July 19, 2009 07:07:01 PM

i made this from a vintage bed sheet and stuffed it with 2 standard pillows tied together.

i followed the tutorial at AT almost exactly, i just changed the size to a 30"X30" square and stuffed the corners with fiberfill to fill in the corners.

i was kinda afraid of sewing velcro.  I haven't before.  i though the thread may catch on the rough side.  it really wasn't a big deal.  i did, however, put the fiberfill in after i put on the velcro.  i had to pick it all out of the rough side.  lawlz.......

27  i went walking with a ghost. in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by SpunK on: July 11, 2009 06:42:44 PM

i had quite a few crafty disasters today.

i needed a quick project to get me back on track.

this lil' ghostie is from the black apple pack.

i should have used some interfacing or something to stiffen the fabric but, i didn't.  i'm real lazy like that.

28  wee and wonderful in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by SpunK on: July 04, 2009 09:20:17 PM

free pattern @ wee wonderfuls.
i spent most of the day before easter watching chitty chitty bang bang and sewing these wonderful little creatures to give as gifts.

the pattern was pretty simple, i just drew on the fabric to make the face and embroidered over it.  instead of weighted stuffing, i tossed some navy beans in the bottom of each one.

everyone really loved them :-)
