1  What to do with a wicker mannequin? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by Painterly on: August 15, 2005 09:12:40 AM
A fellow at work made me take home a mannequin. I'm currently calling her mannie and she lives in the backseat of my car. But that's lame, and she needs to become a useful and productive member of society. Or rather, a cool piece of decor for the new apartment.

I have posted pictures, she is hollow and quite light. I am thinking I might like to make her more sturdy, then put a light weight potted plant in her head. Any ideas on how to make her more sturdy? (she's a bit iffy on the standing up, as well)

Also, any other cool ideas on what to do with her so she actually performs a function. I'd like for her to remain her original color and texture, because I think the natural wicker is lovely.

2  How to.. ? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Painterly on: July 23, 2005 01:09:58 PM
Can anyone help me find a pattern for something similar to this, or help me figure out how to make something like it?
It is from an Anthropologie catalogue, and I thought it was cute but overpriced (of course). Even just a pattern for the big flowers, and I could probably figure out the cord + leaves.
I'd love any feedback!

p.s. - Can anyone recommend good places to get free crochet patterns?

3  Collaged art boxes (6 images) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Painterly on: July 18, 2005 10:02:54 PM
I cannot stand the word decoupage, cannotnotnot.  So these are my collaged boxes! I made several, so this is a multi project topic. I didn't want to overload on pictures, so here are just a few.
If anyone is interested, I have attempted to sell them, but am quite attached, so I would ask $50 for either. I am still interested in selling, or perhaps a cool trade.

Anyway, let me know what you think, or if I should post pictures of the other, smaller ones. Or any cool ideas for themes for later boxes!

This is my Art Lady box. I thought it would be a great jewelry box for a woman who likes art. Featuring pictures of art fems. The bottom is lined with rose petals, which was much fun.

This one began with a very nice box, but it had quite the nasty fake velvet lining. I was creeped out by the rusted pin I found in the depths of the lining. Perhaps I should add a picture of the new inside. No lining, just pictures.
