41  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pink/Silver Glittery Foot Stool on: April 13, 2006 01:45:39 PM
I built this foot stool out of red oak. The joints are dowelled and glued.   It is upholstered in sparkly Naugahyde, with silver appliqued stars.  I put a mixture of polurethane and pink/silver glitter on the wood.

42  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / HUGE Pink Sparkly Naugahyde Bag on: April 12, 2006 03:22:56 PM
I made this bag to indulge my love for sparkly Naugahyde.  It's huge.  My husband calls it a hooker bag.  I had to retire it for awhile because he had to hold it in the car, or carry it for me on occasion, and I realized I could not morally subject him to that anymore.  I love it because the amount of crap I can stash into it is formidable and limitless.

43  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Hand-Dyed Quilt Bench on: April 11, 2006 04:16:50 PM
   This is a bench that I built .  The frame is poplar, and I used the same dye to stain the wood and fabric.  I tied springs in it and upholstered it.  The joints are dowelled.  I have a quilt on the quilting board that I made to match this.  Truthfully, I have never been completely happy with this, and so it serves as inspiration for bigger and better things...

44  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reupholstered Couches on: April 09, 2006 06:29:46 PM
  I bought these about six years ago and just reupholstered them.  This is mohair I bought on ebay.  I absolutely gutted them, tied new springs, new foundation, everything.  I had to do quite a bit of fixing the frames as well, because they were junk.  Not anymore.  I let my kids write messages on the frames, for when I do them again, it will be like a time machine.

45  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sparkly Naugahyde on: April 09, 2006 05:07:03 PM
  This is made from one of my all- time favorite fabrics, Sparkly Naugahyde.  There is a zipper and the strap is webbing.  The stars are also sparkly Naugahyde, and appliqued on.

46  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Phone Purse on: April 09, 2006 04:33:15 PM
This purse is small enough for my phone, and I wear it like a necklace.  It's made from an upholstery scrap and wool felt.  The leaves are beaded and cover the button that closes it.

47  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Wall Quilt on: April 09, 2006 04:07:59 PM
  I saw a wall quilt that looked like this in a catalogue.  It was only four blocks, and more than $100.00.  I knocked off the pattern, and made it bigger. And for about $80.00 less.

48  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Kitty Log Cabin on: April 09, 2006 03:49:15 PM
I made two of these quilts, one for each of my girls.  You can't really  tell, but the prints are retro, some with kittens, all coordinating.  I made the strips big, so they'd go together fast.  The backs are pink flannel.

Here's a better picture:

49  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hand-Dyed Quilt on: April 09, 2006 03:40:04 PM
  I designed this quilt pattern and then dyed the fabric to match my idea.  I used fiber reactive dye.  It is heavily quilted with turquoise thread.  The batting is all cotton so when washed, all this fantastic texture happens.

I realized that I mentioned the quilting, but you can't see it.

50  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Upholstered Cat House on: April 09, 2006 03:09:15 PM
  I made this cat house out of 5/8" thick plywood.  I dowelled the joints, covered it in Dacron and upholstered it.  The inside is upholstered also, and the roof comes off for easy cat access.
