1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / What to do with a useful eyesore? Cover it! on: October 25, 2010 09:16:56 PM
I made a quick cover for the old tv stand that was doubling as a printer stand. I didn't want to buy another stand so decided to try one last attempt to salvage it. It's a corduroy cover with a paper pocket and pen pocket. I'm also going to add a couple of inches to the bottom this week. I actually think I can do more with it than cover it, but this buys me more lazy time. Roll Eyes  Smiley Enjoy. BTW, forgive the duct tape  Cheesy It's what's holding the back on lol! Now do you see why I wanted to cover it?

This is the last of the pictures. I made alot of stuff over the holidays, so I'm just getting around to posting pictures of everything I made. Thanks for looking! I hope to have action pictures (if my niece's mom gets around to taking any).

Okay, here are pics of the scarf-hat:

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Completed 2 Vegbee Weather Jackets! (Obese pics) on: January 05, 2009 03:59:57 PM
I don't have any action shots yet. She's in another state and her mom is too slow *cough*lazy*cough* with taking the pictures. I'll update as soon as I get some. In the meantime, I took some pics of the jackets before I shipped them off. (Excuse the crooked arms on the brown coat. I should have straightened them out!)I have fabric for another jacket, but didn't want to corduroy her to death. I'll have to give it to someone else as a gift when I make it. Enjoy!

**BTW, in case you would like to know, I got the pattern from here.

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Can U add & style doll hair? Post your tutes here! on: January 05, 2008 09:47:39 AM
I'm currently making poppets, but I would be very grateful for any and all tutes regarding adding and styling hair on a doll (esp. adding). It doesn't matter what type of doll or what type of hair, someone somewhere will need it and/or may be able to alter it to use on any doll. If possible, please include pictures.

Thanks in advance for sharing!  Grin

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Overcritical or Oversensitive? on: December 15, 2007 09:35:05 PM
I just successfully created my first pair of slacks and skirt. I tried on the pants and asked SO for his opinion (mistake). At first he said that everything looked great, then he said "Well, the hem is not even, going straight across." Embarrassed He only said that because I earlier this morning I let him closely examine the pants and he looked at the hem at eyeball level, otherwise you couldn't even see the difference standing face to face and not face to hem. Roll Eyes Anyway, I usually wear my pants really long, draping over my shoes but not enough to touch the floor, esp. with high heel boots. That's how I like them, don't ask. Lips sealed Then he proceeds to tell me that it will probably take years to get it 'just right', so I shouldn't 'expect it to be perfect or wearable'. Now I've jacked up the hem trying to 'perfect them' to his standards... Angry (which I will never do again).

Do you think he was being overcritical or I'm being oversensitive? I think it takes some people a long time to pick up things, some people weeks, some people days. I've been reading these boards for days and enjoying all the positive feedback no matter how the clothing looked. I guess I was expecting the same from him. Not. I'm a big gurl, so anything that fits good makes me feel good. I was soooo proud of myself and now I feel deflated like a flat tire. Guess I'll have to turn them into gauchos or something. Note to self: seek feedback from Craftster members 1st...or only *hehehehehe* I'll post pics as soon as I find the camera.
