1  Rescued & Recovered Glittery Desk Chair in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by eli_makes on: July 04, 2011 11:33:33 PM
My friends found this chair on the side of the road and I volunteered to fix it up. We didn't want to spend any money on it, so I used metal flake vinyl from my stash. It was purchased as remnants, I didn't have enough to do it in one or even two colors, so I went ahead and did it in three!

And a closeup of the seat:

I do not enjoy sewing curves with glitter vinyl. It would have been way more of a headache if I didn't have my Teflon foot. I'm not thrilled with my work, I've done way better with non-vinyl, but it was a good learning experience.
Thanks for looking!

3  d20 Pillow for the manfriend in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by eli_makes on: February 18, 2011 01:15:13 PM
I was at a loss for what to make him for our first Valentine's day, until he mentioned wanting more couch pillows.

He is regular player of Dungeons & Dragons, so I thought I could combine this love with his desire for couch comfort, and viola!

I borrowed a D20 from one of his friends and swore him to secrecy, that I might place the numbers accurately. One more to show that it is indeed accurate:

He loved it and brought it to his next game to show his friends. Cheesy

5  random baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by eli_makes on: December 13, 2010 11:56:38 PM
I made this a few months ago for a dear friend's newborn. The backing and white fabric are organic, and I used the organic cotton and bamboo batting, but I wanted to use some fun things too. All told, there are 22 different fabrics- although the pics don't show the different bindings.

I embroidered the baby's name in english and hebrew, her astrological sign, and the latitude and longitude of her birthplace.
