1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / The hot pink bathroom of awesomeness!!! on: March 05, 2010 05:41:50 AM
I had a child free morning, so I decided to cheer up my boring white bathroom.
No before pics, but it was the same suite, just with plain white walls, nothing on them  Roll Eyes

This is the result of 2 hours and a pot of hot pink paint...

I love it, do you?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First ever recon! Love cats t shirt! on: June 23, 2009 03:09:47 PM
I had this t shirt;

Which was cool but a bit boring, so I decided to punk it up a little  Wink

I added a black panel in the back, then laced the leftover white fabric through it;

I've got the beginnings of a black ruffle on the butt, you can't see it so well in the pics. I'll add some more ruffles when I'm less tired  Grin

And from the front;

be gentle, it was my first sewing project ever!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Fat quarters? on: May 09, 2009 02:10:36 PM
Okay, I'm a complete sewing novice so excuse me if I sound a bit dense!
I've been looking at some gorgeous fabrics on ebay and they all come as one fat quarter. Now I know that's not very big, but what can be made with it? Is it big enough to make in item of clothing, like a top or a skirt, or is it just big enough for maybe a bag?
I'm just going to order a few different patterns to build up a fabric stash, and wanted some ideas for what i can do with them.

Thanks in advance!

5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / S&B Nation - not just great for knitting patterns! on: May 02, 2009 02:08:00 PM
I adore the haircut on one of the models in S&B Nation, so much so that I took the book into the hairdresser to copy it!

Here's the before pic;

Here's the pic I loved from the book:

And here's how it turned out;

The hairdresser said it was the first time anyone had taken in a knitting book for style ideas!  Grin

That book has so many uses...
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / My sewing machine is driving me crazy!!! on: March 25, 2009 03:34:57 PM
I've only had my machine a couple of weeks, and I know it'll take time to master the basics of sewing, but I feel like I can't even get off the ground!
It takes me hours to get the thing threaded, only for the thread to come out of the needle as soon as I start stitching. If it's not coming out of the needle, it's snapping.
I'm so frustrated because I have all my fabric pinned and ready to sew, but the sewing isn't working!

Please help  Huh
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Polka-dotty shelves!!! on: March 23, 2009 02:30:44 PM
My 2 year old daughter, Daisy, needs shelves in her room. I couldn't afford to pay for new ones, so I bought these for 2 at a charity shop;

I bought a few tester pots of paint (1 each) and sanded the shelves down, then painted them!
I've done one pink and one yellow. They will both have multicoloured polka dots, but I've only finished the yellow one so far...

I did the polka dots by taking a little plastic bottle cap, covering it with a paper towel and securing with a rubber band. I used this as a stamp and just changed the paper to change colours. To tidy them up, I used q-tips dipped in paint  Wink
I'll post updated pics once they're on the wall  Grin
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Keeping toys up high? on: March 21, 2009 01:58:08 AM
My 2 year old daughter is a nightmare at bedtimes. We keep her in her room with a baby gate, but she rebels by trashing her room. Like, completely trashing it.
I want to find some way of keeping her toys out of harm's way. I'm about to decorate her room with a daisies and butterflies theme, and pretty much all her furniture is at toddler height. I could put up shelves or something, just looking for ideas really.
Any suggestions?
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Boring bathroom cabinets, be gone! Image VERY heavy! on: March 19, 2009 12:52:34 PM
I recently got a new fitted bathroom, which is lovely...

if a little boring. I also didn't like the drilled holes in the cubbies;

I had a huge supply of gorgeous pink and black floral scrapbook paper, so i whipped out the Mod Podge and got sticking...

I love it! What do you think?

I'm going to make my own blind next, black with pink ribbon, and I've ordered a giant canvas of Dita Von Teese in the cocktail glass - burlesque bathroom a go-go!  Cheesy
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A corking Mother's Day gift! on: March 18, 2009 03:42:57 PM
It's Mother's day here this sunday, so I'm giving my mum a few home made treasures!
This is a notice board that I just finished:

It's 100% recycled! The board itself is made from a box of dishwasher tablets, covered in scrapbook paper. I got the corks from Freecycle, and the ribbon roses and hanger are made from a ribbon I took off an old cardigan.

The back is just more of the box and scrapbook paper, to tidy it up and hide the bits of ribbon.

Let me know what you think! I hope my mum likes it  Grin
