1  Old folding chair to new pretty chair in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SaccharineSunshine04 on: December 23, 2010 01:43:45 PM
Hello, craftsters!

I found this old folding chair in my parents' garage and decided to give reupholstering a try.


Luckily, the little back part popped right out and the cushion unscrewed.

I traced around the cushion with newspaper and added a couple inches seam allowances.

I got a staple gun and stapled the fabric around the new cushion.

Finished cushion.

Finished back.

Then I sanded and painted the chair frame brown instead of the black.

Finished chair!

More pictures of my Slytherin goodness!

The scarf is this awesome jersey that's fringed on one end. It's also close to my school colors so I can represent Hogwarts and the Mean Green all at once!

And I love the fascinator!

Thank you so much, blushingbluegrass!

I received from lindsay614!


Glee Wall Art! I love this, I already have a place for it in my apartment.

I'm a Gleek shirt with extra decorating tools.

Emma Pillsbury Emergency Kit: lipgloss, hand sanitizer, and vintage buttons all in a cute carry-all.

Glee magnets! Also going on my fridge in my apartment.

My favorite! "I'm like Tinkerbell, Finn. I need applause to live!" I could not get a really good picture of it.

Thank you so much, Lindsay!

It's a collage and it has the Eiffel Tower and flowers and pink! Me gusta.  Grin

I received from Solitaire!

Looks promising...

I got two knitting books, a lot of yarn, a hemp jewelry kit, another bead kit of some kind, overlock thread, some zippers, two patterns, size 7 knitting needles, this really cool looking crochet hook, and some interchangeable knitting needles in a little zippy case!

Close up time!


Books. One is for afghans, the other is for home decorations. I've already decided to make the table runner first.

Interchangeable needles, size 7 needles, wooden crochet hook.

Thank you, Solitaire!

6  Mid-Term Review in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by SaccharineSunshine04 on: October 19, 2009 12:44:35 PM
I had my mid-term review for figure drawing this morning, and although my drawings were horrible, I feel the need to share my progress with someone, preferably someone who actually appreciates art. I love my friends, but they just say it looks good, which is nice but not necessarily helpful. Anyway, we had to provide 3 gesture drawings and 10 sustained drawings. I didn't take pictures of all of them, but they pretty much look the same.

I like this gesture.

This was my very first day back drawing. I have major major proportion issues.

I didn't think this one was half bad until we had to critique these and my friend Victoria said, "Don't be afraid to draw nipples, Essence."

Then we started doing head studies. I have the issue of making the model look like Barbie. I forgot what my teacher called it.

We decided that this is my second strongest one. I ended up at an awkward angle, and I started my drawing too low. Then I moved it up, and it was way to high.

We put Post-its on these and walked around rating each other on a scale of 1-4. I had an average of a 2.5. I'm having another problem of not using a full range of values.

I officially gave up on pan pastel this day because I think it just adds to my problem with value by making everything middle gray. My teacher said to stop doing the dark halo thing and just fill up the page.

My favorite and my strongest drawing. I actually filled up the page! We also determined that I should just draw the model from awkward angles since those were my two strongest, but she said the arms were still wooden.

Comments? Criticism? I need to get better so I can get into the fashion design program!

7  Hands! IMG heavy in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by SaccharineSunshine04 on: October 19, 2009 12:30:35 PM
In my figure drawing studio, we had to draw our hands in various positions using American Sign Language. We were supposed to do our initials and the year we were born. Usually we have to use conte crayon or pan pastel to do our work, but she extended this project to any black medium. I used watercolor pencil and watercolor.

I finished mine in the hallway because my roommate was sleeping (She's a chemistry major, so sleep is rare and I let her have it.  Grin)

The back of the B just looked cool.

But I took pics of it the next day, and they dried waaaay lighter. It looked like I didn't do any shadowing.








I wasn't born in 1930, we couldn't use the same number twice, and I was born in 1990. I just liked the way the 3 looked.

8  Have you ever put a thong on a pig? (Don't look, CartoonJunkie!) in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by SaccharineSunshine04 on: September 25, 2009 05:28:46 PM
Although the preview slides will probably ruin this. I hope this is the right board. I just decorated a pre-made ceramic pig from Hobby Lobby...

I joined a Pink, Shiny, Girly Swap and my partner, CartoonJunkie, said she likes show girls. I had decorated a piggy bank for my last swap partner also (but way less cute) and decided to decorate another one for my new partner. I love it so much! I miss it. CartoonJunkie better take good care of her.

The thong is my favorite part!

It's uneven, but whatever.

The headdress is pretty cute too.

Aerial view.

It took from about 8PM to 1:00 AM (I watched Project Runway, Chelsea Lately, and The Colbert Report during.  Grin) I think I'm going to make another because it's too darn cute! Questions, comments, suggestions?

I received from CartoonJunkie!

A tote bag, what I guess is a cosmetics bags, and fluffy pink yarn, all in pink!

Thank you, CartoonJunkie!  Grin

10  Re: Send Me on a Virtual Vacation GALLERY (Send-outs extended to 6/26) in The Swap Gallery by SaccharineSunshine04 on: July 02, 2009 12:27:29 PM
Since it appears that my partner has gone on her vacation without the use of my package, I shall post the pictures! My partner wanted to go backpacking across Europe. (And I didn't make a backpack because it's harder than it looks!)

Everything on my awesome pink striped sheets. Clockwise from left, stars next to what I made: *Bag with awesome skeleton print (from a couple Halloweens ago, but she likes skulls), *first aid kit, 12 piece silverware kit (handy for travel), freeze dried ice cream (Neapolitan!  Smiley), Hair bands and one headband, *keepsake box with hidden album, stuffed turtle (for cuddling up to after all that sight-seeing). Not pictured: *passport cover.

Modeled by my passport.

Passport cover. You can't tell in the photos, but it's this cool textured felt on the outside, like alligator skin or something.

Inside: Pink leopard print!

Keepsake book/box from Hobby Lobby! I spray painted it, then covered it in Europe-esque stickers.


It only looks like a book! The inside is a box complete with a matching photo album for her pictures/memories!

First aid kit! It didn't turn out so mini though. I used the pattern/instructions from The Happy Hooker with a few modifications. I didn't make a bottom or a strap, just sewed it around the edges and added a zipper (which stretched horribly).

Crappy shot of the inside. I included normal first aid items. Band Aids, a couple of those hot hands things, an ice pack, glow sticks, chapstick, (okay, I confess, I'm not really sure what exactly goes in a first aid kit...but it's the thought that counts and it's not like it won't hold more stuff.)
