I built this foot stool out of red oak. The joints are dowelled and glued. It is upholstered in sparkly Naugahyde, with silver appliqued stars. I put a mixture of polurethane and pink/silver glitter on the wood.
I made this bag to indulge my love for sparkly Naugahyde. It's huge. My husband calls it a hooker bag. I had to retire it for awhile because he had to hold it in the car, or carry it for me on occasion, and I realized I could not morally subject him to that anymore. I love it because the amount of crap I can stash into it is formidable and limitless.
This is a bench that I built . The frame is poplar, and I used the same dye to stain the wood and fabric. I tied springs in it and upholstered it. The joints are dowelled. I have a quilt on the quilting board that I made to match this. Truthfully, I have never been completely happy with this, and so it serves as inspiration for bigger and better things...
I bought these about six years ago and just reupholstered them. This is mohair I bought on ebay. I absolutely gutted them, tied new springs, new foundation, everything. I had to do quite a bit of fixing the frames as well, because they were junk. Not anymore. I let my kids write messages on the frames, for when I do them again, it will be like a time machine.
I made two of these quilts, one for each of my girls. You can't really tell, but the prints are retro, some with kittens, all coordinating. I made the strips big, so they'd go together fast. The backs are pink flannel.
I designed this quilt pattern and then dyed the fabric to match my idea. I used fiber reactive dye. It is heavily quilted with turquoise thread. The batting is all cotton so when washed, all this fantastic texture happens.
I realized that I mentioned the quilting, but you can't see it.
