11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / silhouettes I think these go here on: June 23, 2007 08:12:18 PM
I made these for my bathroom.  I found old dress pattern covers online, peinted them and then cut out the silhouettes in card stock.  I put them on a brown and pink background as art for my neopolitan bathroom.

12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My mom's super sweet bathroom door on: February 10, 2007 02:17:12 PM
I'm not sure if this belongs in this forum but I had to share the bathroom door my mom made out of old bottle labels and bottlecap jewelry and resin.

and now for the close up

I think the making of the door only took two days, the langthy part was getting all the labels and stuff.
13  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / My fat bottom bag! on: January 29, 2007 09:51:14 AM
So, I made the bag this weekend, it was pretty easy, in a peacock blue wool I had hanging around.  I put the orchid on because I am so sick of winter I just want a little touch of the tropics

My little camera phone does not do justice to the vibrancy of the color, nonetheless I love the bag.

K2 P2 and join the round
Continue K2 P2 up for about 8.5 inches

R1 *K2tog, P2 repeat from * until the end of the round
R2 *K1, P2tog repeat from * until the end of the round
R3 K2 tog the rest of the stitches
BO the remaining 20 or so stiches and leave a tail about 10 inches long. Fold the opening in half and use the tail to sew up the opening.

Enjoy and if anyone has questions, please ask
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Spiffy crochet cloche on: October 01, 2006 12:35:05 PM
I wish the colors were better, but that's what happens when you have a camera phone.
At any rate, I made this hat yesterday and was very excited about how it turned out so I thought I'd share.  I know getting a good cloche shape can be hard.

view of the side where I made the brim overlapping.

Picture where the color is truer
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Macrame yarn? on: June 28, 2006 08:29:09 AM
I am probably butchering the spelling, at any rate I got macrame yarn from the thrift store a while ago and I'm not sure what to do with it.  It's pretty thick and stiff but I like the color, it's a light sage green.  I tried knitting with it and it doesn't work that well.  Crocheting seems to work better but I'm still not sure what to make out of it.  Dishcloths? a hat? a purse?  any suggestions would be helpful
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / New Tank top on: June 10, 2006 03:28:44 PM
Inspiration hit the other day since it's over 100 degrees out and I made a tank top out of fabric I inherited from my mom.  I used the Simplicity pattern 4317 and altered it slightly so it has a sash that ties in the back instead of a zipper.  I love it! I'm wearing it right now.  I have the same fabric in blue to make another
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Wine bottle soap dispenser on: May 23, 2006 06:38:52 PM
I have a bunch of empty wine bottles of varying wines hanging around the house and was wondering if anyone has ever tried to make them into liqud soap dispensers?  The idea amuses me but I'm not sure how to go about doing it.  Any ideas/tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated
19  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt for my sister on: May 12, 2006 03:14:40 PM
This is a quilt I made for my sister for her college graduation.  She loves butterflies and the color blue so that was the inspiration for the quilt.  Of course as all projects go everyhting that could go wrong did, I kept running out of fabric, the measurements were off, etc.  It was hand quilted and I used tension rods to hang the quilt to quilt it.  Nonetheless, enjoy!

Here's the whole thing

detail shot!
