I've been inspired, but procrastinating.  I'm not totally finished, but am at a point that I feel OK posting:

Line it with chicken wire and that moss you rehydrate (home depot/lowes/craft stores), add some potting soil and plants.  You'll have a cool planter for your porch/balcony.

Something like this:


Search "chair planter" for simple directions.

Now I want one, thanks. Wink

Here's the best storage solution for resin ever!

Ask your friendly pharmacist for a couple of 16 oz bottles used to hold liquid medications:


If they're REALLY friendly, ask for a few mouth syringes that attach to the top of the bottle for giving medications to babies (**warning:  if you ask for regular syringes they will probably think you're up to no good and refuse**)


This system works great if you need small amounts at a time.  I usually try my hand at duplicating the beautiful pieces at spoonfed.com  (although I have yet to make a piece I like as well as hers.  I may post a few pics later).

I love this bag found in the Fall 2005 issue of Interweave Knits (a girl can dream, right??)..


I searched everywhere for a 100% wool sweater and found one for $7 at Hudsons (a local salvage center):


After felting and as close as I get to sewing:

Hope you enjoyed viewing as much as I enjoyed making!

PuNkY-  I guess it was a curtin.  I found this beautiful fabric at a local salvage center.  I got 5 large pieces for $3. 

Here's the pic.  What do you guys think?  It almost looks like of a skirt, but has some beads hanging from the bottom center.  Both sides have openings that seem to be for a rod of some kind.

Here it is.  The reason I learned to sew.  I'm thrilled with the result, and the fact that I can now sew.  Yea!

Drumroll please....

My 20 (gasp) year class reunion is coming up and I really want to make a purse out of this t-shirt:



However, since I have NEVER sewn anything in my life, I decided to practice with a curtin I had lying around.  I thought it turned out well enough to use.


Just for fun, I turned a sequin tube top and belt I found on clearance at walmart into a purse as well.


Now that I've figured out my machine, back to the original project.  Thanks for looking!

I saw this in a magazine and loved it.  I made it about a year ago, with plans to make another, but moved on to another crafty project.

Ignore the dead plants.  I have a black thumb Roll Eyes
