3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / 1 heart helvatica - my boyf is a geek indeed on: July 31, 2010 01:57:53 AM
here is a cushion although not massively impressive was my first teaching experience.

My boyfriend decided it was what he wanted to make so we brought white cotton and i made a stencil. i may have been the one to actually stencil as Ben is a wonderful web developer but not so good at drawing/ painting. Then we sewed to together. joint project really (i say joint i mean me but benj helped). the image is a lot crisper in reality. I was quite proud really.

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Alan the poorly photographed amigurumi owl on: July 31, 2010 01:51:37 AM
here is alan:

He is for my friend for her birthday but it took me ages to get it how i wanted it so i was quite proud.

He is not very photogenic/ it maybe i am the worst photographer ever.


5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Too many Owls - Bunting for the whole family on: July 31, 2010 01:47:52 AM
i recently made a similar garland for an owl swap but liked it so much i made one for my bookshelf.

i hope you like it too.

I also made the cake stand but it didnt really show in the picture.

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / mexicana Kitsch? on: July 25, 2010 11:07:24 AM
I was thinking maybe... mexican. maybe small swap. maybe wrestlers and jesus and mary items, day of the dead  ( a bit early i know) and glitter and all things awesome.

Maybe a small swap. any comments suggestions or is this a bad idea?
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / soft that looks a bit like its got 80s measles on: February 06, 2010 01:21:17 PM
me and my ben decided that our sofa which was a cheapo ikea job was getting a bit dirty. we have two house rabbits that although lovely are black and furry. not good for a white sofa. i found this fabric at the market a book from a charity shop and some tacks and away we went - just the chair to do now. got a bit excited so posted pic before i have covered the chair thou.

Ben tacking the side - yes we did not do the best job at this.

see it does look poo underneath but only perdy rabbit sees this side.

The finished result

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / owls of felt on: February 06, 2010 01:10:25 PM
i made owls and toad stools out of felt. mainly cus i had some scraps left over but they now keep my shelf safe from intruders. i like to think they come alive at night. not the toadstools thou.

thank you for having a look. xx
