11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / butterflies for spring on: March 18, 2012 10:13:51 AM
Decor for the living room.

For the first time after I moved to the city I have a small balcony,  and soon it will be spring! Im in the mood for butterflies and flowers and bbq and gosh I love this apartment ^_^! Sun Sun come out wherever you are!

They are crocheted and then I hot glued some bling onto them . When the sun does come I bet it will be pretty : )

Decor for the bedroom window

They are crocheted and then attached with the felt (its wrapped) I used the directions from a leaflet called Lace suncatchers.

Thanks for looking : )

OMG Its a monster eating cat! that so bizarre and brilliant!

I remember my school having these as puppets on a stick (when the stick was pushed up, one doll would "swallow" the other) but this is cooler cause it sorta look like they are going to eat eachother in a constant loop forever and ever ;P

Its so pretty! I would have never chosen the colorscheme, but thats only because I dont have your keen eye! it works beautifully!

... but is it not tradition that the guy brings you your wedding bouquet? just like that he cant see the dress and all that?

Hello : )

Just wanted to show you my new shirt : D I dont know why, but I just love this length! 2 inches more, and I look fat :/


I crocheted this trim...

Tutorial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKmXQjPc9kI

... And hand sowed it onto a shirt I also made : )

The yarn is some really cheap cotton that I got for 5 kr. (a dollar) and the fabric used to be a sheet that I was about to throw out anyway this was basically free!

Here is some close-ups:

I made knots instead of adding buttons because no other color or shine goes with these materials!

The three strands of crochet on the sleeves makes all the difference! I actually didnt like the shirt when I tried it on before I added the details!

You can also see the exact same pictures on youtube if you wish Wink : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAh10vPJtoY&list=UUswzFtiZCY2f0AdaMpkI9sg&index=1&feature=plcp

Does anyone have experience with washing cotton yarn? It says on the skein that it will shrink 3%... I just hope it will still be wearable!

thanks for watching : )

19  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Furniture abuse on: September 28, 2011 08:11:36 AM
First, some ideas and thoughts. The colorscheme of the appartment is black, white and purple.

During the renovation of our new flat, this stool was mistreated, abused, cut, beaten, stood on, sat on, thrown around It was there when we took over the apartment and we were planning on throwing it away when we finished.

I felt, however, that I could save it!
I bought a cheap (!) pillow from a supermarket and sacrificed it (I know, the furniture suffering will not end!) I then chopped up a shower curtain (sorry guys) and used it to upholster the seat. Why not fabric? Because I am a sadistic, penniless student.

If someone is planning on doing something like this, I recommend taking the seat off first. I couldnt with this one as it was glued together and already a bit wonky.

I then tried to cover a button with the fabric. As you can see I sowed pleats on the side of the seat because it is transparent, so I had to do something like that to the button. Turns out toiletpaper hides any color! So I glued toiletpaper on, then fabric
(sshhhh! It will be our secret!)

I dont have a stable gun so I used small nails to make the fabric stay put.

Well? Worth the effort? Still trash?
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / chinchilla house on: September 08, 2011 06:30:13 AM

Me and the boy bought an apartment together and in the process of flipping it (the lady who lived there had died and we bought it off her children who hadn't done anything but cut some wires here and there it was a mess!) I cut quite a lot of wood. I had some left over and I whipped up this house for Kiwi (she's a chinchilla : D)
Its 4 blocks and 3 boards

And a lot of nails

This is the wonderful saw that I have come to hate:   

It really makes cutting boards etc. much easier but my tired bicep misses something more powerful : ) if you want to work with wood but dont have the space for a big something this is very helpful. It also comes as a wooden box with different cuts in it (a cutting box?) that also helps but not as much as this one : )

Here she is sniffing it out and trying to rip out the nails with her teeth xD

I think she likes it she is sleeping in it right now <3

Oh, and to those of you who think everyone is killing chinchillas all the time; this is pine, shell be fine! Its the wallpaper she keeps eating when shes out running that is the problem
