1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / How can I make these Pumps? on: April 23, 2012 07:30:11 PM
I'm getting married!

I need these. I just do.
Unfortunately, they're $320.

There MUST be a way to do this with a pair of white satin peep toe pumps. I've never done anything with shoes before, but I'm pretty good with embroidery, I have a sewing machine, I can hand bead, and I think I COULD do it....
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Can you sew vinyl to fabric? on: June 16, 2008 12:51:30 PM
My parents are exactly a year and a week apart and their birthdays are coming up. My sister just had her second baby so I wanted to make them an updated family tree but I wanted to make it a pillow. My plan was to cut a tree applique from felt and sew it on the pillow fabric, then add the pictures, but I need something to protect them. I was thinking I could buy a shower curtain (unless the sell vinyl at JoAnns?) and just cut little squares out of it, but I'm afraid that'll be really tacky looking and I don't know if it would even hold up.

Does anyone have a better idea? I'm not against just going the normal route and framing it, but I kind of like the idea of a pillow.

It's not particularly crafty (please don't revoke my membership to this site!!) but I picked up an over the door organizer at target that has hooks of various sizes and heights and just clipped it to the top of my closet door. It looks pretty interesting on the front, but you can just do it on the inside instead.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Back to questions- lovely lamps on: June 11, 2008 08:14:14 AM
So after my triumph with my tables and chairs, I'm STILL trying to ready my things for the big move in two weeks (the previous date was changed but this is for real, I have the lease signed this time ha......the 28th, eek!)


I have three of these

they all have plastic "shades" if you will, although they remind me of what you put around a dog's neck after surgery. I wanted to decoupage them but it dawned on me that 100 watt bulb + paper and flammable mod podge could spell trouble.

Has anyone redone the shade of a lamp like this in a non-flammable craft genius way? Thanks!

p.s how many posts do I have to put up before I can have pictures in the post itself? or am I just missing how to do that?

I decoupaged a plastic break apart bookshelf from target that I use as five separate shelves. It worked out just fine, but it's pretty heavy duty plastic. I don't see why you couldn't as long as it's sealed properly. Good luck!

Thanks guys! I love the tile idea. Fortunately what I ended up doing is extremely changeable, so I may try that in the future. Check out the finished product here

the coffee tables are just foam board covered in wrapping paper and mod podge- then sealed with outside weather sealant- less than $20! My new apartment is gonna rock so hard.

I always thought gerbils were nicer than hamsters. you should have two so they can entertain each other and as  bonus, they'll be way more fun to watch than just one moping around.

you can get a polyurethane sealer thats water resistant and would definitately hold up to swipes with a dishrag but I'm not sure about the dishwasher. I bet if you go to home depot or lowes and ask they'll be able to help you, but I sealed my tabletops with polyurethane outside protector that said it was weather resistant and havent had a problem.

I haven't tried it yet- I'm waiting untill I move to decide on a final color scheme, but simply spray for fabric (t shirts or whatever) is different than the upholstery spray, but it is the same company. You can get the upholstery spray at home depot, or from thr simply spray website.
