1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dane Cook Subversive Cross-stitch on: December 15, 2007 12:50:26 PM
So I wanted to make a subversive type of cross stitch for this gag-gift xmas party that is coming up. A lot of people there like Dane Cook, so I incorporated one of his most popular punch lines into a simple cross stitch design.


and here it is framed:


What do you guys think?

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Don't be frightened! It's just my cell phone cozy... on: January 09, 2006 10:26:03 AM
What did I do this morning?


The body is knit, but I crocheted the arms, which I think turned out okay considering I've never crocheted anything w/o a pattern.

I think my favorite projects are the spur of the moment type-completely unplanned and completely unexpected!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / WIRE Picture Holder on: June 10, 2004 10:20:47 PM
You all might have seen these in Target for $10 a piece. They are really easy to make. All you need is a wire hanger and some pliers. I twisted the hanger around the pliers in a circulare motion to make the swirly pic-holding part.
On the other one I drilled holes into a decopauged block of wood, then inserted the wires.

I also bought some mini clothes pins like these and I am excited about using those on my next pic holders!

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / PICTURE PILLOW on: June 10, 2004 09:42:09 PM
awwww snap! I had some extra fabric that matches my friend's room, so I made a her pillow with a picture-size piece of clear, medium to heavy vinyl on each side. Make sure that you only sew three sides of the vinyl piece. Maybe on the next one I will put more pic slots? Tongue

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / french message/photo board on: June 10, 2004 01:08:59 PM
I know you guys have seen these things around. They are so fun to make and are excellent gifts for college dormers or anyone with a wall and pictures. Whenever I saw one at target I would want it, but didn't have the money or it wouldn't match my room or something like that. All you need is a piece of plywood or particle board (plywood is loads lighter) and enough batting and fabric to cover it as well as ribbons. Also, some thumbtacks and something to cover the thumbtacks like buttons or little charms or beads. You will also need hooks and wire if you are planning to hang it. Oh and my favorite part of all is being able to use a staple gun and hot glue!! I will make a tutorial if you guys so desire.  Roll Eyes
Here are a few that I made for roommates, cousins, etc.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / simplicity 5567 "soft bags" on: June 10, 2004 12:49:11 PM
this is the model "A" from sewing patterns for dummies 5567 by simplicity. It was really easy, but it was hard to find cheap bamboo rings! Wink

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / tropical sunkist orange purse on: May 29, 2004 01:12:13 PM
http://img2.photobucket.com/albums/v111/tenesmus/IM000159.jpg
I made this purse from a left over orange bag. I put a contrasting yellow cotton liner to keep stuff from falling out and to make it a little more durable.
If you could find a burlap potato sack, that would be awesome for material.

These are handy if you find yourself walking around while working on sewing projects. All you need is a scrap of fabric, a fistful of stuffing, a scrap of elastic, and a bottle cap. I used a frappucino lid. Make sure the elastic can stretch to fit over your hand. All I did was sew the elastic together to make a loop, then hot glue the cap onto it. Cut a small square of fabric then wrap it around the stuffing and sew it shut to make a mini pillow. Then hot glue it into the cap. VOILA!
If you make it too big, just move it up your forearm. And I'm sure you could use other glues, I just have a hot glue fetish.
