1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / I made a divider curtain! on: July 24, 2008 03:00:13 PM

I needed a curtain to go between the work room and the living room. I wanted it to be two layers thick because J uses the workroom to role play or meet with his gaming buddies, so I wanted something that would block the noise.

I came up with this. Its kind of cool- some vintage patchwork squares that Ive found, some fabric that I love put it all together and voila! You have a quilted curtain!

First, the living room side. This is my favorite side:

And the workroom side:

Heres a closer look at the patchwork on the workroom side, since its hidden behind the shelf.

Thanks for looking!

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilted Wall Hanging on: June 25, 2008 04:59:46 PM
I made this wallhanging for my SIL who recently had her 2nd tubal pregnancy and now cannot have children. Sad It's definitely not the best thing I've ever created, but it was a learning process!!

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Color Book on: June 25, 2008 04:51:46 PM
I didn't quite know where to put this. Its not really quilting, but I didn't really see a place to put other sewing stuff. Anyway, this book is touchable, so it's great for kiddos to check out.

Cover: those tabby bits were taken from a baby toy. theyhave that crnkly paper stuff inside.

Red, orange

yellow, green

blue, purple

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Happy Easter Tester Bunny! on: March 15, 2008 10:00:50 PM
This little guy is my tester. I used this patt: http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=1282

It's really small, so I blew it up and I wanted to make sure that it would work at the different size. Sabine's will be pink and I am going to do a green one for her cousin.

Thanks for looking!

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Roll up chalkboard on: March 10, 2008 02:10:10 PM
I love these things! I just wish chalkcloth weren't such a pain to sew with!!

I didn't have any chalk, so I'm modeling crayons.  Roll Eyes

All rolled up. Usually I like to put it all together with an elastic band, a sherpa wipe and two or 3 pieces of chalk.

I made a tutorial here: http://www.artistrylive.com/toysndolls/chalkboard.html
8  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / I made wool beads! on: March 09, 2008 12:12:49 PM
This is my first post of any substance here and I thought I would kick it off with some awesome wool beads I made.
A big tip I learned is that I should not felt two days in a row... my hands are killing me today!! They are so dry and scaly and painful. Argh!!

Anyway here are the pics:

Thanks for looking!!

I also wrote up a tute on my website/blog: http://www.artistrylive.com/index.php?title=the_joys_of_wetfelting&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / bubble wrap paper tutorial on: January 12, 2005 04:21:40 PM

What You Need:
quality watercolor paper, water based paints, brush, and bubble wrap.

Step 1:
Cover your paper with the paint. I used burgundy wine.

Press bubble wrap onto the wet paper.

Step 3:
Press to dry with the bubble wrap still on.

Step 4:
Remove the bubble wrap and wa-la! textured paper! Try this with crumpled foil or saran wrap!
