2  Necktie-Upholstered Chairs? Just when you thought we were out of necktie ideas.. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by OurJuliet on: July 02, 2006 11:54:05 AM
Let me begin by saying this isn't my idea in any way, form, or fashion!  However, when I found it, I knew I had to share.  We've seen just about every necktie project possible here in Craftster...but...

I now introduce...

the necktie-upholstered chair:

Directions and description are found here:

Now, how cool is THAT?

3  How to make a round, tufted ottoman on casters? in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by OurJuliet on: April 30, 2006 11:32:47 AM
Here's a sample of what I want to make (roughly):

Except...I want to lose the fringe and add casters.  I need it to be very durable since my 6 year old will sit on it a lot.  I have a general idea of how to make it (cut layered plywood into a circle...add foam...add casters to the bottom, etc.)...however, I'd like to find specific directions (especially about how to make the tufts through something this thick).

If anyone knows of any directions posted on the net, I would appreciate it!  I know Debbie Travis did a show on this once, but now I can't find anything about it!

So, does fabric have to be drapey to use on the bias? 

Pretty much any type of fabric can be cut on the bias successfully...BUT heavier fabrics hang much, much nicer on your curves when cut this way.  I happen to LOVE the added texture of upholstery fabrics, but when you don't cut them on the bias...they hang awkwardly (with no flow, if that makes sense).  Cutting on the bias also helps prevent wrinkling since gravity is working in your favor to keep the downward flow (rather than fighting to pull side-to-side). 

I got new Teva sandals like this and they have to be the squishiest, cushiest most wonderful flip-flops ever. 

Those look SO much like my favorite flip-flops!!  I love Havaianas:

and Teva Olowahu:

I'm seriously in love with this pattern!  I found some more fabric that could be cut on the bias and used this pattern to make another skirt!

Soooo...here's the same pattern with an entirely different look:

I'm not skilled enough for a jacket yet, but Butterick's new summer collection has a very versatile pattern:

It's pattern #4741...and is currently 1/2 off at www.sewingpatterns.com !

9  Post your favorite fabrics here! in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by OurJuliet on: March 24, 2006 12:38:06 PM
I'm really uninspired by the fabrics I'm looking at right now.  I'd love to find some great, boho-styled prints.  Anyway, please post your favorite fabrics you've found on the net so we'll all have an inspiration source for when we're creatively-challenged!

I'll start.

10  Re: What to do w/ ribbed "beater" tanks in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by OurJuliet on: March 21, 2006 04:42:20 PM
You could make an adult version of the ribbon shirts:

Just take apart the side seams approx. 2" where the ribbon will need to tuck...then sew it across the bodice...then reconnect the side seams.  This would look really cool with some Boho ribbon (or even a strip of great fabric)...or some antiqued lace and buttons. 

I love dressing up simple tanks this way...and they look great with circle skirts and flip flops!
