11  Re: Cute-n-Creepy Swap of Doom!! in The Swap Gallery by ElizabethsMom on: March 08, 2010 05:11:27 PM
Lookit Lookit Lookit!!!! I got my package from tehbunnykins today! I am so excited to share!

First up is the Skelly Pirate done in fuse beads! Awesome!!! (The first thing the kids said "is that going in our room?" "Heck no!" was my reply)

Next was an awesome hand painted portrait of Eeyore as a pirate! (I'm a nut for anything Eeyore!)

As you can tell, he kinda fits right in on the shelf in my craft area!

And now a shot of both pieces in action Smiley This is what I see when I sit down to sew!

Thank you so much for my awesome new artwork! Can't wait for DH to get home to show off to him as well Smiley

12  Dollar Store Mini Golf in CHALLENGE 42 ENTRIES by ElizabethsMom on: September 05, 2009 10:06:11 PM
Ok so I took this challenge and offered the creativity to the 9 year old that I watch. She and I roamed the aisles of the 99 Cent Store until she found a golf game. We then found a cool bamboo basket, a wooden plate rack, some chips to snack on, some green grip liner and various candle holders. At the last pass, she grabbed a bag of small river rocks. Our grand total came out to $9.30.

I took the sides of the basket apart to create a bridge. We used some fleece scraps to create a "water feature" under the bridge and at the back of the "green". She also used the larger golf clubs as decoration for the entrance to her course. She also found a couple little things around the house to decorate with (little pottery thingys I got in AZ, some aluminum foil for an arch, etc). Unfortunatley for her, I am not the photographer in the family so please forgive the next photo (had to have DH photoshop the clutter from the background). She turned it into a game with actual scores and rules and the kids have already been playing with it for the last week Smiley

Thanks for looking!

13  From "Death Chair" to "Bad@$$ Rockstar Chair" in CHALLENGE 28 ENTRIES by ElizabethsMom on: June 04, 2008 12:44:32 AM
About 4 years ago my sister showed up on my doorstep with two of the most ugly, yet comfortable chairs. They got dubbed the "Death Chairs" because I would commonly sit in one and fall asleep so soundly that no one could wake me up. I bought fabric to recover them however being a busy single mom I really didn't have the time to take on such a project. So, 1 queen size fitted sheet with a couple holes compliments of the cats became the temporary cover. One chair eventually got sent to Goodwill but because of the hole in the arm and the cigarette burn in the seat cushion, this chair had to stay behind. Now I am so glad it did!


I got to this point in the reupholstering process when I found out that I hadn't bought enough fabric (3 years ago) to cover the whole thing. So, we hopped in the car and went for a drive to 5 (yes 5!) different places only to discover that no one has ever seen this fabric before. Ok, time to improvise...

We ended up using the leopard print fabric to cover the two lower sides and the back of the chair. That fabric was originally intended for the cushion only but I think that it really helped to tie the whole thing together.

And now for the action shot!

So, keep in mind that I have only been sewing for 6 months and I have never reupholstered anything before, what do you think?
