1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / How to accessorize baby pink room for non-girly grown woman? on: August 18, 2014 02:05:06 AM
I'm moving into a room that's been freshly painted...in pastel baby pink.  It's even a cold pink, and I have no idea what to do with it.  I go for bold or exotic designs over elegant and lady-like, so I'm NOT looking for Victorian tea party or white-on-pink designs.  My bedspread back home was red, orange, and black paisley.  I had black curtains, and a big red bookshelf and I'd put gold paper on the back of it.  In this new room, I have a choice for bedspread and curtains, and possibly a rug, and then whatever I can put on the walls.  My closet, curtain rod, and desk are a light wood, pine? oak? not sure, but definitely not cherry.  I can't do any painting of the walls or furniture, and I want to work with the pink instead of just trying to force something on it.  Themes in my brain cloud are cozy, warm tones, boudoir, Arabian nights, Moulin Rouge, bohemian.

This is not putting it on a new shirt.

Hm, I thought I had replied to this, but maybe Craftster ate my post.  I am already making a quilt out of some other t-shirts, but these shirts can't be used for it because of their size or different material (for the sweatshirt).  What I'm looking for are people's suggestions for cutting out and reattaching the screenprinted logos onto other clothing so that it's flexible.

I would be interested in this!  I went to my first shadowcast on Valentine's Day this year.  If it's real soon, I might not, because I'll be moving, but maybe around October would be a good time to drum up interest, because a lot of smaller cities have shadowcasts on Halloween.

Here are the things that I made for LadybugsAndBumblebees:

The weaving was made on a loom much like this one http://ccsfexhib.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/tapestry-best.jpg?w=500  I learned the technique while working at a community for adults for disabilities in England where I will be returning shortly.  I wove the images with a tapestry needle and filled in the background as I went along.

I have a hard time letting things go.  I have two t-shirts and a sweatshirt that have logos I want to save somehow.  I can't really alter the shirts themselves.  One tshirt is too small and has gross sweatstains on the back and pits.  One tshirt I already tried to alter into another shirt and it didn't turn out comfortable, and there's not enough to try again.  The sweatshirt is too ratty to be saved.  I like the old punk DIY method of sewing patches onto clothes, but I want it to look a little nicer than handstitching with dental floss.  What do you find is the best way to reuse an image from a favorite shirt onto a new shirt?  Would it be any different with the sweatshirt material?

Here's what I received from TrickyMcVomit:

A handbag and purse set with GLOW IN THE DARK skulls on them an a sugar skull lanyard

A hematite and red skull rosary (I like my religious items to be a little badass!)
A Sherlock themed journal with a stretchy cover

And a surprise inside the back cover!  I don't know where you found this fabric, but it's perfect and I love it!  The journal is just my type, too.  Thank you!

These are the things that I received from LadybugsAndBumblebees

Grey and black crochet scarf
Grey and black crochet laptop sleeve (which unfortunately does not fit my new computer but might fit my old one)
Grey crochet pouch for electronics (nice and cushy!)
two bookmarks
Space and stars scraps

I'm not sure if she meant to, but there were also some crochet patterns that she slipped in, for my next project(?)
Thank you!

I'm still plugging away little by little on the most time consuming piece.  I hope it turns out as good looking as I picture it in my mind!

Everything is ready to send!  I have to get a bigger envelope at the postoffice because I overestimated the ones I had.
