61  Re:Decoupage Table in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by twilight on: April 03, 2004 12:49:20 AM
A friend gave me a table. It was sort of beat up so I thought I'd redo it.  

First I put down pages from the Nation. Then I laid down lots of pics that reflected different parts of my life. I love the way it turned out!

62  Telephone Wire Outfit in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by twilight on: April 03, 2004 12:44:09 AM
Last year I made an outfit out of telephone wire for the Taos and Santa Fe Recycled Fashion Shows.

I took a seam ripper and ripped open telephone wire. Inside were all these wires in bright colors. I seperated the greens, blues and browns.

I created the design as I crocheted. The skirt was made in four panels then sewn together with more wire. I made the cups of the top and then crocheted straps to connect them. (one around the neck and one for the back)

For my hair I took more wire and braided my hair around it to form the circles. Then I wired old cell phones that I had taken apart into my hair.

In Santa Fe I won first prize!

64  scarves and skully sweater in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by twilight on: April 02, 2004 11:01:21 PM
I made go go garter scarves for my neices this past Christmas. I used multiple strands to get the varigated effect.

Here's my version of the skully sweater. My husband wanted it plain and a bit longer. This is my first sweater.

I'm hooked on decoupage! My latest projects have been containers for pens, cat treats and crochet hooks.

66  Cat Shelf in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by twilight on: April 02, 2004 07:03:07 PM
This winter I put plastic over the windows to keep out drafts. The cat wasn't too happy about this since it meant he couldn't sit in the windows. So I made him a cat shelf. Everything's recycled except the brackets.

I started with some scap plywood, some quilt stuffing, some salvaged upholstery squares and some shelf brackets. Upholstery worked best since my cat likes to scratch the fabric.

Sew the upholstery squares together big enough to wrap over plywood. (Prana is already showing interest.)

Next staple quilt stuffing onto plywood with staple gun.

Wrap upholstery around plywood and staple underneath.

Screw brackets to bottom and to wall.

Cat tested and approved!
