1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Recycled Tire Purse! on: June 26, 2008 08:33:49 PM
Let me first say, "I did NOT make this!"  I found it on an auction site.  However, I thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread and wanted to share it so someone on Crafster could take this idea and make their own...cooler...version!

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Neckties Tablecloth??? on: August 26, 2006 04:56:44 PM
I never tire of neckties project, but this one was especially cool.  How great would a bed quilt made in this fashion be??



This is not my creation...I actually found it on eBay where it's being auctioned right now.  Very cool, though!
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Hair accessories with fabric? on: August 04, 2006 09:26:17 PM
I made a bunch of really cute, printed skirts to wear to work, but I have all this great fabric left over.  I'd like to make something I could wear in my hair, but I have challenges here.  Scarfs do NOT stay in my fine hair (plus we aren't allowed to wear them at work).  I'd like to figure out how to make a hair clip or ponytail holder with fabric in it (NO fabric flowers...oh how I hate them!). 

Does anyone know of any resources for these suckers?  Thanks!!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / An earrings organizer for a little girl's room! on: July 05, 2006 04:00:01 PM
I know this is not an original idea, but we needed an earrings organizer for my daughter's room...soooooo...


We used plastic canvas and left the hanging tab that you would normally remove.  Double-sided, coordinating ribbon forms the "frame"...a simple loop at the top and it's ready for business.  SOOOoooo easy, and my daughter loves it!  I love that I can quickly and easily grab it off the wall to take it to her closet to find a pair that coordinates with the morning's outfit!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Necktie-Upholstered Chairs? Just when you thought we were out of necktie ideas.. 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?
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / If you recognize this fabric, you'll make my year!! on: June 09, 2006 06:09:10 PM
I've had this great, Tuscan-styled chair for 3 years now...sitting, waiting, wanting to be reupholstered and loved again.  I've searched endlessly for THE fabric to do this with.  I found it.  On eBay.  The seller only had 1/2 yd (certainly not enough to do an entire chair in)...AND he doesn't know the maker...AND he doesn't have any more of it.  *grumble*

I'm on a quest to find this fabric so I can buy enough to make my chair happy again!  I know it's a chenille, upholstery-weight fabric, but that's about it.  Please recognize its maker and make my year!!

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Decoupage question! on: June 09, 2006 11:06:52 AM
I have a vision, but I'm not sure I have the know-how to pull it off just yet.  I want to buy a set of those ugly, blonde tv trays that come on their own stand...and I want to paint them black and then decoupage vintage Italian posters to the top.

Now, IF I can't locate the posters I want, could I save the images to disk and take it to STAPLES and get them to blow it up to poster size?  Would that paper still be decoupage-able? (or would it bleed, etc. as soon as the wet hits it?)

Since these will ultimately need to be child-proof...would I let the decoupage dry thoroughly...then coat the entire table with some type of epoxy?

Any guidance would be appreciated!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / How to make a round, tufted ottoman on casters? 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!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Preview of Amy Butler's newest pattern!! (Cabo Halter) on: April 11, 2006 02:43:42 PM
Amy's two new patterns will be in stores shortly.  Here's a preview of her Cabo Halter that is to die for!  I'm grabbing this one the moment it hits the shelves!

10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Have you tried to highlight your hair at home? on: March 25, 2006 08:36:17 PM
I'm ready for summer highlights!  I'm not ready to pay a lot of money for them.  I bought a basic highlighting kit at the supermarket, and I'm going to have my sister apply it for me.  I'm thinking of using foils instead of the cap.

Any advice before tomorrow when we give it a try?
