1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Teacup wall hangings on: January 14, 2010 06:36:47 PM
I made these for the STS but I liked them enough that I wanted to share them here too. I got these two wooden teacups at a thrift store and they sat in my craft room for about a year. I was cleaning out recently and almost got rid of them when I got this idea instead.

I painted them white, decoupaged them with origami paper, and made the steam swirls out of floral wire. They can sit on a counter or hang on the wall since I put hangers on the back.

C&C welcome!  Smiley
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Sweet little birdie on: January 14, 2010 05:08:40 PM
When "shopping" in my mom's craft room, I came across a small wooden bird. I kept it until inspiration struck a couple of days ago when I decided to decoupage it with scraps. I originally made it for my STS shop but my husband really liked it so I decided we would keep it. After all, he rarely gets excited about crafts so since he wanted to keep this one, I was delighted.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Lots of new pincushions: Egg cups, teacups, mini cups, oh my! on: November 15, 2008 06:39:11 PM
I just made a bunch of new pincushions...mostly for the shop the swap but I wanted to share here as well. I got the idea from kellen46's really cute ones. All the containers are from yard sale and most are vintage.

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for someone's stacked coin quilt post on: March 14, 2008 12:22:29 PM
Hi...sorry this isn't really the kind of question that is supposed to be posted here, but I am looking for a quilt that I saw posted on craftster before and cannot find it again. I would like to make one similar to it and would really like to see it again. It was chocolate brown with several skinny columns of brightly colored (I think mostly pinks and yellows) small squares stacked on top of each other. I think it is called a stacked coin quilt or a stacked penny quilt but I have been unsuccessful in searching under those names. I also went through the posts, one by one and couldn't find it. I know it was within the last few months that I saw it. Since I couldn't find it in the quilting section, perhaps it was made for a swap or posted in another forum. If anyone knows what quilt I am talking about and could post a link to it, I would be most grateful! Thanks  Smiley
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / covered button ponytail holders on: February 10, 2008 09:43:31 PM
Those in the Shop the Swap have been seeing these for a while, but I decided to go ahead and post them in the real world for everyone else. It used to be a total mystery to me how to make these where the ponytail holder actually goes through the back of the button until I found this wonderful tutorial.


and some bobby pins- these buttons are smaller
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / covered button thumbtacks on: February 10, 2008 09:32:25 PM
I made these from a tutorial on About Orange. All you do is take the .5 inch buttons, remove the loops on the back, cover the buttons with fabric, then glue a thumbtack to the back. Supereasy and lots of fun to make!

Thanks for lookin'!
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / vintage embroidery musical bird on hankie on: January 28, 2008 03:15:12 PM
I just made this for the Shop the swap. It is from a genuine old embroidery pattern (that I also got on shop the swap  Smiley). I used running, chain, lazy daisy, and stem stitches, and French knots. Thanks for looking! comments always appreciated  Smiley

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Grocery bag from vintage tablecloth on: January 05, 2008 11:46:20 PM
I just love Queenofdiy's grocery bag tutorial! This is about the sixth one I've made and they have all been huge hits with the people I've given them too. Even though lots of people have made beautiful versions of this bag I decided to go ahead and post this one since it is made from a vintage tablecloth. The tablecloth was pretty holey so I was only able to get two front panels and two pockets out of it so I made one for my SIL for Christmas and then this one. I used a pale blue linen-look fabric for the backs.

Here it is folded up into its little pocket:

9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Assortment of cute lavendar sachets on: January 05, 2008 11:34:35 PM
I made these for my shop the swap shop. I am kinda hoping some of them don't sell because I would like to keep some for me  Smiley

Which set do you like best?
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sake cup pin cushion on: January 05, 2008 11:28:05 PM
I made this for my shop the swap shop. I don't know if this is actually a sake cup or not. I found it for a couple of dollars at an antique store and added the pin cushion part. It was inspired by Kellen46's post on making pin cushions from chinaware. I also made one from a teacup but I don't have a picture of it yet.
