1  Shabby Chic Nursery in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sunnytuesday on: April 27, 2011 09:43:59 AM
I've been collecting vintage floral sheets for a few years now and when I found out we were having a girl, I knew exactly what to do with them - shabby chic nursery!  I predominantly used four full-queen sized sheets for the main theme.  I also used some eyelet I inherited from my grandmother, an old full-sized bedskirt, about a quarter yard of new fabric leftover from another project and about a quarter yard of various vintage sheeting scraps.  I picked the sheets up at thrift stores for between $2-$4 each, and everything else I had on hand! 

What four sheets will make: valance, 3 crib sheets, crib skirt, curtain swag, bunting, lovey blanket - and I have a lot more left over for future projects!

I also made the pomanders, button art, print above changing table and hair bow organizer.

Now, on to the photos!

I'll be blogging about the individual projects in more detail over the next few weeks!

2  100 Happy Days Tag Book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by sunnytuesday on: August 02, 2010 05:21:25 PM
I made this tag book for the receiver to write down happy things for 100 days.  I figure if we think of something that makes us happy every day, we'll be a little happier in general!

I used 52 shipping tags and a 2" book ring, both found at an office supply store.

I decorated each tag with ribbon, stamps, scrapbook paper and/or stickers.

For the story on how my tag book came to be and more pics, visit my blog: http://sunnytuesday.blogspot.com/2010/07/100-happy-days-tag-book.html

Here's a pic of the box (in the right direction this time!) next to the book cover so you can see what an awesome job SarahJ did!

First of all, let me say that the pictures I took don't even begin to do justice to the beautiful crafts SarahJSaturday made!

Everything was packed inside this absolutely GORGEOUS box with the New Moon tulip painted on top.  It looks exactly like the book cover and I LURV it! 

All my loot: 
New Moon Sky Bar (I don't think we have Sky Bars in Tennessee - I'm so excited to try this!)
So pretty black glass drop necklace with a lavender flower and lavender satin ribbon
Crocheted hat like Bella wears in the movie - I love crocheted items & can't wait for it to be cold enough to wear!
Crocheted New Moon flower - this can be used as a ponytail holder or pin, I think I might add it to the hat
Apple ornaments (from the Twilight book cover, obvi!)  I'm already aching to get out the Christmas tree and add these to it!
Bella's BLOOD! Ew! Smiley

Thank you so much SarahJSatruday!  I feel so spoiled!

5  Baby Quilt for a Vintage-Inspired Nursery - First in Quilting: Completed Projects by sunnytuesday on: September 20, 2009 12:04:42 AM
After procrastinating for a YEAR, I finally made a quilt for my good friend's son.  She has a vintage toy theme going on in his nursery, so we pulled some inspiration from that.  The border is the same fabric she used to make the crib skirt.  The backing was a remnant, so I got it at 50% off! Smiley

I kind of cheated and quilted it on my sewing machine.  I stitched on the binding by hand.  It's not my first quilt top, but it is my first completed quilt.  If it still counts, since I quilted it on a machine.

The front:

The back:

6  Upcycled Hair Clip Organizer in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sunnytuesday on: June 30, 2009 05:14:45 PM
Got a wire hanger lying around?  Too many hair accessories?  No space to set an organizer?  Lots of fabric scraps?

Me too.  So I sat down with a hanger, some scraps of yarn, ribbon and fabric and a handful of embellishments.  10 minutes and half a hot glue stick later, I came up with this:

With the clips on:

All I did was wrap the scraps around the hanger and secure it with hot glue.  Then I added the fun bits.  You can visit my blog for more pics.

7  Scrabble Tile Ornaments - Pic Tute Added (Obese) in Winter Holidays by sunnytuesday on: December 15, 2008 06:19:32 PM
I had extra tiles left over from a project and decided to make them into ornaments.

You can go very simple with these or embellish beyond recognition.  Totally up to you!

I posted a detailed tutorial at my blog - http://sunnytuesday.blogspot.com/2008/12/scrabble-ornaments.html

8  ATC Memory Cards in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by sunnytuesday on: November 21, 2008 07:45:12 PM
So, I made these for my family members to remember my grandmother using some playing cards found at the thrift store.  I still have about 25 left to make and I know they're probably not technically ATCs since they won't be traded, but I figured this was the best place for them.  I know I could kick it up a notch by adding ribbon, stitching, glitter, etc but I kind of like the simplicity and am not sure if I want to take away from that.  What do you think?

I'll update my blog with new cards as I finish them!

9  Monster Mask Costume in Halloween Costumes by sunnytuesday on: September 30, 2008 08:54:27 PM
I saw this idea on Craft Lab and knew I had to try it.  Using a foam eggcrate, some fur and a few other things, I created this monster mask for my DH to wear for Halloween last year:

Here's a link to the tutorial: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_linens_fabrics/article/0,2025,DIY_13765_5075719,00.html

10  Headband Revamp in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by sunnytuesday on: September 15, 2008 02:01:13 PM

I guess this would be the best place to post this.  I revamped it, but since it was already a headband before, I don't think it would qualify as "reconstructed".  It kinda reminds me of a Munchkin from the Wizard of Oz.


After some ribbon, a flower and a button:

Everything I used I already had on hand.  You could use something other than a flower if you don't have one.  Maybe a fabric flower?  A larger button?  A couple of buttons? Something made out of polymer? It's a very simple project!

I've posted a complete tute at my blog. http://sunnytuesday.blogspot.com/2008/08/spot-of-sunshine-on-dreary-day.html
