1  My Reupolster Project in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lreidlinger on: January 25, 2009 11:46:26 AM
So, I was so inspired by KairiGurl's loveseat https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228476.0 that I decided to do one myself.  It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. 

I did take before pictures, I just can't find them.  So just imagine nasty, dirty, whitish corduroy all over with torn up arms from a vicious kitty...

Heres the out come:

I got the couch for free off Craigslist.  The hard part was tearing everything off.  The rest was pretty easy.  I got the fabric from Joann's. The shells is this blue/brown psychedelic crinkly stuff that changes color depending on how you look at it, and the cushions are a durable stripey brown.  I sprayed scotch guard all over when it was finished, and I keep a blanket on the back to protect it from my devil cat.  I believe it was like, 9 yards of the blue and 3 yards of the brown.  I paid around $100 for the fabric, it was on sale. I even added some extra padding to make it a little more plush.  The padding  wasn't quite long enough, so it looks a little lumpy, but nothing real noticeable.  I just stapled everything down. I probably should have sewed the cushions, but I was feeling extra lazy so I just hot glued the hell out of them.  I'm pretty proud of my self anyway.

2  Making paperweights in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by lreidlinger on: November 14, 2007 10:19:14 PM
Hello craftsters-

so, I found these paperweights that I really really want. They are dandelion puffs encased in resin. I've only ever used resin ondce when I made a HUGE coffee table out of leftover brick and mortar and wood to cover all the brick and mortar to give it a nice smooth top. That was super easy, I just mixed and poured. Can anyone tell me how I could go about making these awesome awesome paperweights? THANX!!

I got my bags from bloomingkinder. She sent 2 bags plus a cute little stocking with peppermint sticks. They are wonderful!!

Here is the first, its a patchwork bag. My mom has decided she is stealing it, lol.

And this is the other one. I love the snowman fabric,  and it has little jingles as trim at the top. The leather straps are fab also!

Thanks so much. This was fun. A great experience for my very first swap!!
