1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Star Wars bedroom -Image large on: March 05, 2011 12:34:59 PM
My son turned 4 so he got a big boy room for his present from us!  He has a TINY room, so we decided to take the closet out and use it as part of his bed.  My dad put shelves in to the top for storage.  Eventually, they will have the cloth bins to organize toys and clothes.... But those bad boys are $7 a piece!  Anywho that is what the closet was built to hold.  Each shelf will hold 2.

Before pictures: (thats my daddy working away!!)

Closet turned bed:
R2-D2 Body Pillow... It was an infant costume I found at the Goodwill (sewing machine broke mid-pillow so it isn't finished)

One side of the bed/closet

Other side:

Chain Pull, I love it <3  It was one of the Galactic Heros that is missing his saber.  The chain pull fits perfectally!

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / 2 hour, $50 makeover on: March 05, 2011 10:50:38 AM
I am in the process of adoption soooooo I am on a SUPER tight budget.  But, that said, I needed to whip out a few projects around the house.  So for the cost of paint, and a few Target clearance items I have a hallway now.  I am not totally finished... but it is presentable

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / What can i do with plexiglass model boxes? on: January 08, 2011 07:30:29 PM
I have a bunch from work.  I am not sure what I can do with them... but I know where is potential in there somewhere!!! They are lit and about 2x2x2 ft.  They don't have to keep the contents... my children may steal them anyway  Roll Eyes 

(sorry for the mess... it is my craft room so well, well you know)

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding a similar pattern/ "float dress"??? on: January 05, 2011 10:42:17 AM
My daughter wants this dress (link below) for father/daughter dance and Easter.  I cant find anything really similar... have you??  I am a fairly beginning/intermediate level sewer and I am not the most comfortable altering patterns a ton (certainly not creating my own!!!) 

Annnnnnd really dumb question, but do you buy the fabric pleated like that or is that something that you do yourself?


5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Grandparents presents for $10! on: December 27, 2010 08:10:13 PM
I made this for all the grandparents this Chrismas for about $10.  (well in theory, I messed up a few times so I had to start over).  Pretty easy, but they loved them!  I like them so much I think I am going to make me some (only, in orange not white!).

6  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / 1875 Hat on: December 20, 2010 07:26:51 AM
I never know where to post hats... So here seems fitting.  I work in a 1875 era Living History museum in a millinery.  This is for the broomshop (factory) gal, so it has to be plain/ dark colors.  I opted for the elastic strap vs. relying on a hat pin. 

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first hat! on: July 21, 2010 05:21:45 PM
I wasn't 100% sure where this belongs so here it landed...

I work as a Milliner in a living history museum that portrays 1875.  This is the first hat I have made!!!... annnd technically it is a bonnet. 


8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Historically accurate 1870's patterns?? on: June 18, 2010 07:28:20 AM
Does anyone know where (online) I can find a historically accurate Victorian knitting patterns? I work at a living history museum that portrays 1875 America.  I know we have some patterns at work... but that is a really BIG hill I have to climb to get to the library and I am lazy... Wink  Thanks!

ETA: Oh I guess I should add... something fairly simple since I have to put the work down often to speak with visitors (but that is NOT a dishcloth!)
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first project!! on: December 08, 2008 01:17:50 PM
I've done a few basic sewing projects before but I count this as my first!!  Simplicity 5827  My first pattern, first sleeves, zipper, fitted garment, so on so forth.  The neck is really wonky as i didn't understand the directions at all, but I winged it and it at least resembles a neckline... from a distance anywho.  I am also in the process of making a matching one for her American Girl doll (knock off) which both are her Christmas present so I can't show that picture! Ok sorry for TMI here is the dress:

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Is there a tute somewhere to set in sleeves? on: November 12, 2008 06:31:59 AM
I tried searching for one... but yeah, searching for "sewing sleeves" is sort of impossible.  I'm a very new sewer and I am working on a doll pattern for my daughter.  I am working on the mock dress right now and I just don't get how to sew the sleeves in!  I need step by step instructions!
