1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Circus sundress on: February 23, 2008 03:15:12 PM
It's a lovely springy day here, so I decided to make a sundress. It's one of those from the fabric that's smocked around the top. I cut off about 10" of fabric at the bottom and hemmed it, and then I used the scraps to make straps. I think it's kind of fun and vintage feeling -- the colors and dots make me think of the circus.

I'd say start to finish it took about 90 minutes.
2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / felt baby shoes on: March 25, 2007 06:28:44 PM

I made these baby shoes for my friends' new baby. They're wool/acrylic felt with snaps and rickrack bows. I used a pattern from the Martha Stewart website for (that's right) "felt baby shoes." The pattern is here if anyone is interested: http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.0e0eb51a2e6b5ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=da672e912b11f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&vgnextchannel=07a19db8cdcee010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=photogallery&lastnavigatedchannel=07a19db8cdcee010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD

It took me a while to figure out the sizing, so I wound up making 3 too-small shoes before I got it right. If I'd gotten it right the first time, I'd say the pair would have taken less than an hour.
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / image transfer question on: July 30, 2004 09:29:31 PM
I want to transfer a photograph I took on to a canvas. Now, what is the best way to do this? Obviously, if I get desperate, I can just do an iron-on, but I wanted something a little more like...ON the canvas, like an image transfer. I can either do a regular inkjet print-out, a color xerox, or I have access to a professional quality inkjet photo printer. Does anyone have any ideas?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / travel kitsch living area on: July 09, 2004 09:57:10 PM
I'm moving into a great restored 60s-era apartment. It's a one-bedroom, with typical "bedroom and other" floor plan. I want to do the living area in 60s travel kitsch. So far, I have a pink suitcase coffee table (American Tourister hard shell couls survive a nuclear war), a pink velvet chair I found alongside the road, a great medusa lamp from target, and a globe/map type rug from IKEA.

I think for wall art, I want to blow up some vacation photos from oddball locations (I have some great ones from the Cadillac Ranch) and transfer them to canvases.

What other ideas do you guys have? I have some old-school diner tabletop items (metal napkin holder, salt and pepper shakers, etc.) as well as some flamingo lights that I plan to tack up over the bar. What other ideas can you ladies think of? I have a small living room, dining area (with parquet floor) and kitchen (bar looks from kitchen into dining area). I have just about all the furniture I need, aside from a side table.

What little odds and ends decor things can you think of to perpetuate the theme? (I also have a fab souvenir tray from Bermude dated to around 1970 that I'll keep on the coffee table).

Thanks in advance!
