I want an army of crazy insectbots in my house.
Did you use the motor from an old cellphone like someone suggested on youtube?

Unfortunately I cant show you this on a model, I dont have a baby at hand.
A friend is gonna have her baby in a couple of days, boy or girl nobody knows (or tells?). I made this hoodie for the new one (its a german size 68 for 4 months olds from a modified burda pattern. The mushroom is my own design.

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / What can I say - it's a lamp above our dining table. on: July 21, 2009 03:21:31 AM
I always wanted a lamp above our dining table, not only a spot light coming from somewhere.
My Ma works at a glaziery and she gave me about 150 samples of acrylic glas, some of theme transparent some opaque. They already had holes drilled in. So I went to my favorite Turkish store and bought a round aluminium baking tray (3,99), drilled twice as many holes in as needed (just because...), broke my fingernails when I twirled the keyrings - I once bought hundreds for almost nothing when they closed down "our" metal goods store -  onto the acrylic glas patterns and these onto the tray.
Before I had a round hole sawed into the middle of the tray in which the old lamp holder fitted.
Finally my man surprised me with a lovely gift: a chain so that we could hang the lamp nice, save and adjustable.
And here it is:

It makes me happy both night and day.

I'd so love to see those hanging on the wall, but at least ten times as big.
And my son, almost six, asked: Are they ghosts?

Thank you all for your nice comments.

I used this matress which was 15 or 20 cm thick, 220cm long and 110 cm wide. My friend had cut it into those 4 pieces to stuff it into her car and bring it to the recycling court.
And my sewing machine IS awesome, but just an ordinary 20 years old Pfaff. The problem is not the actual sewing through the straps (I used so called TopStitch needles (one broke) with an extra large eye for thicker thread), but the transport. So I put the machine on the ground and had a friend help me dragging and directing the piece.

A friend of mine had been working at a company for automobile safety and he used to take the rests of the big rolls of belt straps and give them to me. They were about 3 meters long. After a while I had so many of these... too many for waistbelts and bags.
Another friend wanted to throw away her almost new foam mattress and had it already cut into pieces.
So I wove the straps into  two 3dimensional covers and sewed them to back- and downsides of really fat molleton (the man had been working on movie sets),closing with big zippers.

Unfortunately on the first, the big piece I put them together edge to edge, but because of their thickness they need a bit space in between and thats why the front is pretty bumpy. Stuffing the foam pieces inside was almost impossible anyway and so I decided that it was fine.

So...take a seat, please.
