1  Custom Book headboard? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by nghna7t on: March 13, 2011 08:09:53 PM

I want to make a custom headboard for my son's book themed room.  I found an image online and edited it to fit my needs but now I'm not sure what to do with it.  I want to have it printed in color and then applied to MDF which can be routed and shaped to follow the outlines of the books.  Is it best to have it printed as a poster and glue it on, print as a vinyl wall decal to put on or is there something I'm not thinking of?

Any thoughts are appreciated!  Thank you!

2  Door Decor? in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by nghna7t on: November 01, 2009 06:38:05 PM
I would like to make one of these for my friends' little girls.  I'm thinking tension rod covered in tulle with tulle hanging off? Does that seem right? Any other ideas  or suggestions?

thank you!

3  Real "tag" Blanket in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by nghna7t on: June 19, 2008 11:51:54 AM
I had made my son a tag blanket using ribbon, but noticed he still seemed to like tags better.  So I cut tags from towels and blankets (things that I know how to was and don't need the info) and sewed them into a blankie.  One side is cotton and the other is a satin.  I used one piece of ribbon, but otherwise they are all tags.  I'm now on the look-out for interesting tags I can use to make more.

4  Where to get a quilt made? in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by nghna7t on: September 23, 2007 06:40:08 PM
I'm trying to find someone that could make this quilt

(inspired by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=172250.0)

My first thought was to post on etsy - but that part of the site seems to be under construction right now. 

Is there anyone here that might be interested or would you know the best way to go about finding someone?

I'd like the final quilt to fit a double bed (I think, we can discuss).

Thank you!

Anyone have any idea how they make these? (without catching the books on fire?)

6  Boobie Pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by nghna7t on: March 22, 2007 08:00:58 PM
My baby sister found a lump in her breast last month. Although the doctor assured us it was benign she felt more comfortable having it removed. Today the lump came out and was confirmed as benign.

Remembering something I saw on Craftster I threw this together this morning. I gave it to her in the recovery room and she was very embarrassed. Everyone else (including the nurses) laughed their butts off.

You can't see it in this picture, but I "pierced" one of the nipples. There's a small silver loop hanging out of it. Some might point out that the nipples aren't even, but anyone with a naturally well endowed chest knows they never point in the same direction anyway.

7  Celtic Knots in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by nghna7t on: March 22, 2007 07:58:29 PM
We finally got around to having a girl's night out and went to Ally's Beads for a beading party.  As I looked at the walls of beads and realized that I had so many of these at home I decided to try and make something different.

I'm pretty happy with it and have worn it several times. It consists of these beautiful carved Celtic knots, sterling silver wire, and some green marbled beads. All capped off with a Saki silver clasp. Very different from anything I had.

I joked with the girls that next time they can come to my house, pay me $5 and make something from my huge bead stash!

8  Making Flags? in Discussion and Questions by nghna7t on: January 21, 2007 08:51:36 AM
I wasn't sure where to put this topic.  I would like to make one of these flags with a name on it - I would think I would use some type of nylon so it could be outside, but I'm not sure what kind and where to get it or how to sew it.  Could I use one large piece and then applique the letters on each side?  Is it enough to just uses wonderunder and a zigzag stich on the machine?  Has anyone made anything like this before?  Any thoughts?

Thank you!!

9  Are you ready for some football? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by nghna7t on: January 01, 2007 06:56:49 PM
I was planning to make this as a Christmas gift for my sister anyway . . . and then this came along.  I'm sure my fellow Craftsters will have something way more fabulous, but I figured I'd throw my hat in the ring.

I used a small soft football, added the handles, and then lined it with Bengals fabric. I bought the handles and then put grommets in the football and used leather cording to tie the handles on through the holes (if that makes any sense) It's a little rough around the edges but she seemed to love it.  If nothing else she'll be the only one tailgating with one!

10  Wooden Rings - Descriptions/Prices? Help me encourage hubby! in Get Product and Website Opinions by nghna7t on: October 30, 2006 07:45:37 PM
My husband is joining my crafting obsesssion and has begun making rings out of different kinds of wood.  We want to put them on etsy but would like suggestions on descriptions and prices.  The only other wooden rings I can find are over $100, but seem to be customized for each order.  My husband is making rings in various sizes and we'll sell them with little jewlery bags or something.  I have a few pictures but I need a better way to take close-up shots that will capture the grain.  I love the rings, but I love everything he does - I would love feedback/thoughts from you all!

Ignore the mess in the background - that would be cropped or there would be a different set-up on etsy photos.
