This is a great idea.  I have the same problem at my apartment, although I only have one parking space and a car.  But it's making me think and hopefully by spring planting next year I'll have something thought up!  Thanks for the inspiration!!

I really like this, you did a wonderful job.  I love the colors and I think it looks great felted.  I have a couple patterns from that book that I've been meaning to try, I think I will now!

YOurs turned out sooo good!  How did you manage to make them look so good when you switched colors.  I tried carrying the color as I crocheted, but, you can see the 'carrying color' plain as day.

You can see the "carrying color" on mine as well.  It helps to pull your yarn tight right after you switch colors and keep your stitching pretty tight as you go along.  Not too tight though because then it's just a hassle to work with.  This was the first time I had ever used 2 colors at the same time and it was a little difficult at first, but once I figured out the tension it got a lot better and I just flipped that potholder over and took a picture of the good side   Wink  That's my real secret!!

I just finished 2 sets of the skull holders.  I really liked how they turned out:

I made the blue and green ones as a housewarming present for my friend and the pink and yellow as part of my sister-in-laws birthday present.

I used sugar and cream 100% cotton yarn for both of them.  Thanks for looking!!
39  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a Superman dry erase board!! on: May 19, 2009 07:13:01 AM
I just finished this last night.  It's a dry erase board that I refurbished.  I found it at a rummage sale a few weeks ago and bought it.  I wanted to make something for my brother-in-law for his birthday and his favorite superhero (he loves his comic books) is Superman.  So I knew I wanted to do a Superman theme.  He has also gone back to Art School recently and I thought this would be perfect to jot down notes and things he needs to remember.  Here is the finished product:

I have a bunch of photos here, so I'm going to try and work my way through them.  Here are the before shots of the original dry erase board:

I removed the dry erase board and the top picture.  It was actually made to be removed so that part was really easy.

Then I scrubbed forever to get that sticky velcro stuff off the wood and then I painted it with some left over blue paint I had.

I have never worked with polymer clay before, but Joann's had Fimo clay on sale for 99 cents a piece and I couldn't pass it up.  So I decided to do the Superman logo in clay.  I just found a logo online and printed it out, cut out all the pieces with an exacto knife and then used them as my pattern.  If I were to do it again I would do it on cardstock instead of just printer paper.  After I finished the logo, I baked it before doing the blue background.

Then I rolled out the blue clay until it was big enough to fill the picture frame.  I put it on the parchment paper and let it sit there for about a half hour because it had gotten a little too tacky to handle:

I used the glass from the frame as my pattern and then cut the right size hole for the emblem.

I just finessed it in, just some spare clay to do some patch work on the back and baked it again.  I let it cool, then baked it again.  I figured after that it was good:

I bought some new dry erase markers (crazy expensive!!) and it was ready to go.  There are some things wrong with it though.  There are some bubbles in the blue background.  I don't have a pasta machine so I rolled it by hand so it's not perfectly even either.  But I still think it looks good and I don't think Jesse will hold it against me.  I do need to make a holder for the pens and erase.  I was thinking of either doing it in more blue clay and attaching it to the side of the frame or getting some red and blue ribbon and have them hanging from the back.  I haven't decided yet.  I hope he likes it.
