This King size duvet cover is loosely based on Lotta Jansdotter's pattern in Simple Sewing. Well ok, only the ties!! The fabric is a mix of prints from Jo-ann. The peace signs and mod faces are both from Alexander Henry. What do you think?!

Definitely try them - they are very easy. I even kind of liked them just plain black, before/without the gold. Nice and shiny that way!

This idea is from Mark Montano's book, Big-Ass Book of Crafts. His idea is to make them paperweights, but I plan to install them in the mini sculpture garden I'm making behind my art studio.

I bought a bunch of old dolls in various sizes at Goodwill, filled them with plaster of paris, and then stuck a kabob skewer in the plaster. I'm hoping the skewer will help keep them upright in the dirt. I spray painted them black, then overlaid the black with metallic gold. I tried to distress the paint to make them look old and I also protected the eyes so they would continue to open and shut. I like them, even though they are kind of weird.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Kangaroo Pop-up Card on: April 15, 2008 09:49:49 AM
A few messages down, I posted a seagull pop-up card I made from a Japanese book called "3D Pop-up Cards". This is a kangaroo from the same book. The difference is the card sits horizontally rather than vertically. It actually was easier than the bird, though I didn't think it would be. The trick for me is to fold the paper against the grain.

I made this 3D pop-up card from a template I found in a Japanese craft book. I scrapbook weight card and a simple glue stick. The first one was the hardest but it got easier - I love it!

noushi, I think it helped alot that I gave him little bits of ham whenever I would try it on him. When it was finished, I kept up with the ham the first few times he wore it. He'll do absolutely ANYTHING for ham. Smiley

I knit this center cable sweater from a pattern in Ilene Hochberg's Stylish Knits for Dogs. I'm a beginning knitter - this was my first cable ever!  - and it took me only two days. Totally easy - the chest piece is simply sewn to the back - no need to shape armholes. The yarn is a wool/acrylic blend from Michael's (he's a dog after all, it needs to be washed). He likes wearing it believe it or not!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 1920s Cloche hats from Felted Sweaters on: November 04, 2007 07:35:31 PM
I made these hats out of felted cashmere sweaters, vintage belt buckles and ribbon. The pattern is from Cynthia Treen's book, Last minute Fabric Gifts. They are so easy!

I agree with other posters - felt them first. I have instructions for felting sweaters and other felted sweater projects on my blog, just look for the category.
