1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / I second the plea for bathroom ideas.. on: July 12, 2007 03:58:47 PM
Hello my decor diva's,
I need help with art ideas & special touches to make a grown-up duckie bathroom..

I've always wanted a rubber duckie themed bathroom, but not a little kids crappy one. I'm moving into a new place and I'll be sharing a bathroom with a kool, hip, mid 20's boy.. he's cool with the duckie theme, but also doesn't want anything too kiddy.

SO! Here are my ideas so far...
-- Sew a light blue shower curtain, appliquéing a patchwork duckie on it..
-- Accent with Lt & Med blue and yellow towels
-- Put these duckie mats on the floor (like 3 of them)..
-- Accent with wood//bamboo// zen style counter things (soap/toothbrush holder, make-up box)

** Any ideas on art work and other finishing touches?

Thank you for all your ideas!!!

I think this topic goes here.. but feel free to move it Cheesy This is a car organizer.. like a purse for the car Cheesy It was super easy & fun to make. It took about 3 hours from beginning to end. You probably wouldn't need a pattern, but I used Simplicity 3731.

More photos here:

Yay Cheesy This was so fun to make.. I'm going to make some other goodies for my vroom vroom too!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Need Pattern Advice: Summer Dress on: June 19, 2007 11:38:45 AM
I perused the board, but didn't find anything specific to my body type. I'm a pear shape, which means a lot of booty and small chest. I'd like to make a summer dress for a wedding, but am unsure on the pattern.

The two patterns below are contenders, but does anyone have other suggestions for a pear shape? Full skirts don't look good on me, all you see is skirt, so I'm leaning toward A-line or gored.


*thank you*
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chandelier Bead Necklace on: June 16, 2007 07:04:55 PM
A fellow bead friend turned me on to this chandelier bead necklace design.. If you have basic beading skills... it's super easy.


This design uses a bead cap as the base and you link chain all around the bead cap to create the tassel. At the end of each tassel you add a decorative bead using a flat head pin. Let me know if any one wants more detail.

Fun felt flowers... I made about 50 and use them as ascents on sewing projects and made them into hair barrettes.

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Easy Screen Cleaning Technique on: June 15, 2007 01:09:23 PM
I did a large batch of screen prints recently and did not have access to running water in my garage. So I filled a large rubbermaid tub about 4" full of water. When I was done printing that screen, I tossed the screen in the tub and quickly cleaned the screen with a tooth brush and big cup*. It's worked superbly, saved water and mess. I'd definitely use this trick again.

*Big cup was for pouring water over the larger screens that didn't quite fully submerge into the tub.

Also-- a couple of time I just threw the screen in the tub and pushed it under the water and left it there until I could clean it out. But do that at your own risk.. paint is persnickety.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / I heart screen printing on: June 15, 2007 11:15:04 AM
The link below is to three screen prints I did for a camping trip. The swirly one says "oode", it's a nickname.. (everyone asks). I used the drawing method and was quite thrilled with the experience. The green paint is night-glo and it actually GLOWS!


Happy Crafting, Laciebug
