Thank you all!  I work at a patriotic themed office, and I had planned to use it for kids in the waiting area, but I can't bear to part with it now.  lol

I used home-made chalk paint and then sanded and waxed it.

I didn't post about this, but I wanted to show off my upcycled end table.  I'm pretty proud of it.

I hope it's okay to post this here.  I PM'd a moderator 2 weeks ago and haven't gotten an answer.

I made this adorable, patriotic kid-size table

From this old, dirty, water damage end table

I'm still working on doing something with the bottom part of the original table, but it's not working out quite the way I wanted to yet.

Throw pillows?  Just stuff them and sew up the ends.

My 15 y/o daughter would LOVE LOVE LOVE these, especially the 11th Doctor.  She hopes to marry Matt Smith one day.  Cheesy  
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Can someone tell me if my RECON idea will work? on: June 22, 2012 08:34:13 AM
I have very little sewing experience, but I love the idea of reconstructing clothes...I always have, but I get these ideas, and I'm just not sure if it will work, so I chicken out.

Here's what I'm wanting to try, I've seen several people have reconned tees to add a strip of fabric along the sides, but I want to cut a T-shirt up both sides and sew a wedge shape of fabric onto each side to make it an A-line (and to make it bigger around the stomach area).  Will this work?  I keep trying to imagine how it will look, and I have this horrible image that it will be awful, and I will have ruined 2 perfectly wearable shirts to try it.

Has someone tried this?  Can you share pics?  Tuts?

No, I haven't tried either. I'll check into it, but please keep the ideas coming.  I watch my niece's 3 little ones quite a bit, so kids' craft ideas are welcome too.  I'd prefer something that can be used as gifts or sold at craft fairs.

My MIL gave me a huge tub of yarn, and I'm tired of making scarves.  That's all I really know how to knit, and I'm not a fan of crocheting.  What are some other crafts I can make with yarn?  I've tried doing a search here, but it always leads me to the knitting or crocheting forums.

I have more fabric left from the original shirt.  How do you think it would look with a ruffle at the bottom to give it some length?  I'm not sure how that will look, but as much as I love it, I still haven't worn it because it's shorter than I normally wear.  Any other suggestions to lengthen it?  I may just go find a longer black t-shirt and start all over. Undecided
