31  Coffee Table Cover in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by RosiePosie on: September 05, 2006 03:03:46 PM
I have a pretty boring coffee table and I wanted some fabric to match the rest of the dark purple decorations in my living room. I found this awesome fabric on the $1yard rack at Wal Mart today, and knew it was just perfect. It was a bit on the thin side, so I backed it with some lilac fabric I already had.
I added pockets in the ends to store the remote controls. I also used velcro and attached a peice of that stuff that holds rugs in place, I don't know the technical name for it.

Thanks for lookin'!

32  Some sari lookin' curtains... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by RosiePosie on: July 30, 2006 12:32:14 PM
Hehe, sari lookin', get it? Ok, that was pretty lame, I know.
I bought this sari fabric at http://www.mantofev.com, Sara there was such a big help in finding the colors I wanted.

I basically measured all the pieces and cut them so that they were the same length where I wanted them, then I sewed them together. I didn't hem any of it, I just cut it all straight and used some Fray Check. Once the Fray Check ran out, I used clear nailpolish,lol.

It kind of looks like the Green Bay Packer's colors, but that wasn't what I was going for. My bedspread has yellows and greens in it, so it matches that nicely.

Thanks for looking

craft-matic- thanks for that link, that gave me some inspiration. I really like this one

 I think i could probably pull that off if I can find some nice, thick ribbon.

bag_lady- I think I might make the sleeves 3/4, I've never done much with sleeves though so I'm a little hesitant. I tried on the jacket again and the sleeves are pretty loose, I might try making them 3/4 and tighter.

LRS- Thanks for the suggestions!

34  What to do with this jacket? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by RosiePosie on: October 07, 2005 06:37:40 AM

A friend gave me this jacket. I was hoping that someone could help me think of a cool way to recon it so it's a little more fasionable. It fits ok in the body and the sleeves, just the front looks kind of dorky,lol. Any ideas are appreciated  Smiley

35  How to make this veil/headpeice thingy? Kind of img heavy, sorry. in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by RosiePosie on: May 26, 2005 05:58:27 AM
Yes, I reailize that this should be on the wedding board, but I don't feel that that board gets read very often.

I saw this veil thing in the "Behind These Hazel Eyes" video (Kelly Clarkson). I didn't want a real poofy veil, I dont know if this even qualifies as one,lol.

From the pics it looks like a lightweight material. With maybe some tulle in there somewhere? I'm not sure where to begin on making this puppy. I want more of a fininshed look to it, in some of these pics it looks a bit raggy.
Thanks in advance for any advice y'all might have  Smiley

I think tye dying would look cool, but don't for for the target like design that everyone does.
A few months ago I tdyed a shirt and made it with diagonal lines. Here's a pics

What I did was roll it up from a corner, and then I folded it in half after that and tied it off with string (or you can use rubber bands). Then I dipped one end into pink for about 10 mins and the other end into purple for about 10 mins. I should've set the dye though, now it's peach and lavender after going through the wash a few times.
I used the RIT dye method, but there are better methods out there.
Nice job on the recon shirt too!

37  Re: Perfect Present For Your Sweetie!!! in Valentine's Day by RosiePosie on: January 19, 2005 01:41:11 PM
I made of these today, it was pretty easy! I had to keep adjusting the alarm and hour hands though to get them in sync but I finally got it. I'll post pics of mine here when I get a chance to take a pic of it. Thanks for this great idea!

Here's the pic of mine. Yours is better though bunny bum, you have that cool retro clock.
