5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Safari Pillow set for 17th Bday on: January 14, 2012 06:52:16 PM
So yeah, tomorrow is my cousin's 17th bday and I had not a clue what to get her, so my aunt suggested she needed new pillows. And after looking at Pillows that fitted the theme, but were out of budget, (40$ for one pillow  Shocked ) I decided to make her some.

The round pillow, I just started and found out how frustrating a a round end can be, when you don't measure, but oh well.

And the big Giraffe Print pillow, has "ornament" corners that I pulled out of my bead bag, the ends are little dingly bells.

And here is the fabric, because it all came together when I saw the stripes on the tulle.
6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for modifying Boots & Slippers? on: December 30, 2011 02:36:36 PM
It's official! I have weird feet, tiny, but wide and of course, soccer thights that prevent me from wearing boots!
So I have these boots, and way back when I could torture myself into them, but now, they gap open 4 1/2" wide and 5" from the top. So I wondered if I could add more fabric, or what would be my other options.
They are pleather with white thread,

And then I just bought these crochet slippers for 2 bucks, without trying them on, and go figure, my foot is too wide to get in.
So again, should I tear them apart and try to match the fabric? What would be the best tool to get them parted without ripping?

Thanks for ANY help!

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / How to "Fuse" wire. (welding/soldering) on: July 09, 2011 08:34:48 PM
Okay, so I don't know the terms, but I want to make some butterfly wings for a hairclip out of wire. And "fuse" it to a metal hair clip. Nothing bigger than 3 inches.

My dad bought me a butane torch with a removeable soldering iron tip and after that a different butane torch.
What else would I need and what is the best wire out there?  Huh

Or should I just blow it off and buy the expensive metal clay.

Thanks for help in advance.
