41  Dress up elf bonnet in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by itchyfingers on: April 29, 2009 12:53:20 PM
Not sure what else to call it - it's just two squares of broadcloth sewed together on two sides, then I attached ribbon and buttons.  Sorry about the uncooperative model - I was attempting to take pictures of it on her while she was watching a movie.

Oh, yeah, and if there is a better place to put this, will someone let me know?  I couldn't figure that one out and just thought maybe kids clothing was a good place to put it.

42  As yet unnamed mixed media piece in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by itchyfingers on: April 20, 2009 09:35:49 AM
I'm sure the title will be something related to recycling, as I used newspaper pieces to make a tree (tree makes paper, paper makes tree).  I'm very happy with it, and the colours are so perfect for spring, too.

I don't think this photo does it justice, really.  Oh, well.

43  Ninety minute snuggly fleece bear in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by itchyfingers on: April 19, 2009 11:06:05 PM
I made this little blue fleece bear/pillow for a birthday gift the night before the party - it took about an hour and a half and was very easy.  It's just plain blue polar fleece, some flannel for the eyes, a pom pom for the nose and thread for the mouth.  I made a simple pattern in paper - drew half and folded it before cutting it out so it would be symmetrical, although in the end, it wasn't very symmetrical - oh, well.  I don't have process pictures because I was in such a hurry - just the end result.  Smiley

44  Banged up nightstand gets a new look! (Lots of pics) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by itchyfingers on: April 14, 2009 02:29:15 PM
I've been wanting nightstands for quite a while and mentioned it on Facebook - and a friend who is moving gave me two for free!  They are sturdy, but have a veneer top and were pretty banged up.  I thought about just sticking them in my bedroom and not worrying about doing any work on them, but I was feeling crafty, so I got to work.  For now, I've only done one, but I plan to do the second in the same style.

I forgot to take a picture before doing anything - but I took a picture of the other nightstand since it looks more or less the same as the one I fixed.

I first painted green with a black crackle over top, but ended up changing my mind about that part later on.

I found a picture of a tree online and did a bit of editing to it before printing it out, pasting to two layers of cardstock and decoupaging it to the top of the nightstand.

After that was dry, I painted black over the whole thing and outlined the tree with green.

I ended up painting the whole thing black, sponge painting black over the sides and drawers and finally covering the whole thing in another coat of mod podge (all but the sides).

I also bought new hardware and I'm very happy with the end result!
