1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / pink haired waldorf doll and kitty doll are good friends! on: July 14, 2005 09:25:35 AM
i made the pink haired waldorf  doll for my 1 year old
and my 7 year old (who claims she is half cat) wanted a kitty doll.  Smiley

they are both made out of recycled t-shirts from the thrift store.
total costs for both dolls was less than $5. cant beat that!!!
some day i will make clothes for them!
i used the magic cabin pattern that a friend gave to me. it was really fun and easy. i am going to make some more. one for myself!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / now with tutorial!!- firey flower lamp shade on: July 14, 2005 08:56:31 AM
after baby knocked down the lamp and the glass shade broke i had to make something new. so i made these flower petals and turned the lamp  into a huge glowing flower.  Grin


lit Cheesy

ok, i am not so good at explaining things, but here goes!

*first, get your supplies ready

20 gage wire,
tissue paper (remember to save this when you get gifts!)
acrylic medium (modge podge or one of those other decoupage products "might" work- no guarantee)
and a crummy old paint brush (it might get ruined)
and wire cutters/needle-nosed pliers are handy

*next, bend the wire into the object of your desire!

*then, tear strips of the tissue paper- and put a glob of the acrylic medium on it and "paint" both sides and fold it over the wire frame.

 do this with a bunch of strips until your wire frame is covered and there are no single layers of tissue left.

let it dry- make sure it cant get stuck to anything while its drying!!!!

*finally, hang in window with all your other junk, er um treasures!

ok, i know this is a little heart and not a lamp shade, BUT now that you know the way you can cover anything-even 3D wire forms this way.
i hope this helps. feel free to ask questions and if you make anything post pics! id love to see Cheesy
