21  Towelie wash cloth in Knitting: Completed Projects by LuckyNumber7 on: August 20, 2010 02:59:16 PM
In my ongoing quest to make work fun, I do a weekly game of drawing things around the office for people to guess at what they are. Most right guesses win a prize. Two weeks ago was South Park and I came up with a usable Towelie wash cloth. It's made of cotton and plenty strong. I've already had requests to make them for other people.

I do a contest at work where I draw things around the office and people guess what they are. If they're the first ones with the right answers they get a prize. Well two weeks ago I did G.I. Joe and the winner got this guy!

I hope he likes him.

23  Craft Corner in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by LuckyNumber7 on: July 11, 2010 04:47:01 PM
For the longest time I had this awful, ugly, smelly chest of drawers built into a little corner of my apartment. The other week I took a hammer and chisel to it and ripped it right out (no mean feat).

After ripping it out I had big plans. Big plans indeed. I have tons a crafting supplies and almost no place to put it. Thus craft corner was created.

I began my search at a local paint and wallpaper location. And wham! It's like this wall paper hit me in the face and told me to buy it or it would do it again. So I did! I adore movies from the 30's and 40's and have seen most of the movies featured on the wallpaper. Brought it home and put it up. Next I got shelves to hang and a little storage case. Got all my various craft supplies from whatever area I shoved them into. And It was done.


Before, I unfortunately didn't get pics of the drawers

24  Warhol Soup Earings and more in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LuckyNumber7 on: June 30, 2010 04:25:12 PM
I've been looking for a way to adapt a Warhol into a craft. I've had a terrible cold and someone at work suggest I craft myself some chicken noodle soup. Inspiration struck! Warhol Soup earrings! Here they are, plus two other cuties I did at the same time.

25  Piranha Plant and Bobomb in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by LuckyNumber7 on: June 28, 2010 02:00:17 PM
I've been trying to make where I work a little..well, funner. So I made up this game where every week I draw pictures around my office and my co-workers have to guess what they are. If they guess all of them they get a prize. It's something different that kind of breaks up the monotony. Last weeks theme was classic super mario brothers and these are what I'm giving as the prize. I found the pattern for the Bobomb (if you would like the link just ask) but the Piranha Plant is all mine.

This weeks theme is He-man. I'm still trying to figure out a prize for that one.

26  Stenciled Cabinets in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by LuckyNumber7 on: June 26, 2010 01:26:58 PM
I just finished resurfacing my kitchen counter tops. After I did so I found the paint lacked something. Then I got a wonderful suggestion to do some stenciling. So off to the craft and hardware stores for supplies. I found these adorable fruit stencils and got to work.

27  New Counter tops in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by LuckyNumber7 on: June 20, 2010 08:36:57 AM
My dad dropped by unexpectedly the other day and dropped of new laminate counter top for me. I thought "why the hell not?" and got to work. I stripped the old stuff and put this on. It's the first time I've use contact cement too. I love that stuff.
The bad thing is when I took out the sink the plumbing, well, FELL OFF!! It had rotted thru and needed to be replaced asap. So again, "Why the hell not?" So I took myself down to the Home Depot got the parts and made it myself. I've never plumbed before. But using common sense, logic and the old pipes as a guide and voila! no leaks or anything!! Next thing I have to do is repaint the cupboards to match. I'll think of something, but if you have any ideas please let me know.

28  Roy Stars in Shoes: Completed Projects by LuckyNumber7 on: June 14, 2010 03:57:45 PM
I bought a pair of shoes about a month ago with the intention of reconstructing them. I've been looking around for ideas then I remembered Pop Art and more specifically Roy Lichtenstein. I dyed the shoes (they were black so the inside went green the out stayed black) and the laces. I wanted a distressed look to the transfers. So I made sure the middle stuck very well and peeled off the sides. I'm pretty happy with this first attempt. Next time I'll get different coloured shoes to start with.

30  How to Kill a Zombie in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by LuckyNumber7 on: April 11, 2010 06:26:47 PM
This is my first attempt at silk screening. It took three tries to get the photo emulsion done correctly and a few practice tries before I attempted to put it on a shirt that I would wear. I am very pleased. This has opened a brand new area into crafts that I will enjoy for years to come I think. I have so many ideas! The font I used was not the best for the small lettering, but it's still legible.
