Stunning - thank you for sharing this with us.

Not sure of your chances in the challenge, given that the spirit of the competition was a little less nihilistic, but I would personally award you the Sylvia Plath rosette for beauty in dispair.

Ooh ooh *raises hand* seen an organ made into a computer desk on the UK show The Salvager... found his site http://www.thesalvager.com/site/ but the desk isn't there (boo!)

But I did find this one http://www.daveburroughs.com/pianodesk.html which has a step by step with lots of pix... the only thing is that gutting it does look like quite a bit of hard work, but if you're willing to put the time in it should be cool!

OMG - *slaps forehead* I did a craft fair just this weekend and spent the 20mins before leaving for it frantically trying to effectively divide a shoebox to hold my earring cards in place.

Thanks for the great idea Smiley

Aww, bless --> n u l l g a l's post

My first thought for the fabric was wrap trousers (sorry, pants for all you shermans :p) like here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=214076.0.

Or if you're not brave enough to wear that print out, how about adults pyjamas?

What a fantastic idea for finding pattern inspiration - It would be really cool to match napkins/serviettes to the pattern on your dinner service... actually also a great/cheap idea for a wedding present (to match their chosen service) or for an anniversary.

haha this is so cute! when i did the part on my doll i just crossed over some threads from either side of her head so it covers the part. she really adorable! i love amagarumimimis!

 Shocked genius!~

piaochong's suggestion is probably the neatest if working from scratch but to save you undoing any of the hair now you could just take a little extra thread and whipstitch down that central line.

Great job on finding such unusual beads - I think you've made really good choices for mounting them - not one pair I don't like (and that's unusual for me!)

Everyone seems to be picking a favourite so I'll say the little Arenia Flower ones - I would have been tempted to try and put these on with other beads but I think you were right to keep them simple and elegant.

Oh and did you buy the large ear wires or make them?

I know you have posted this in clothing... but if you do end up with some bits that are unusable in clothing you could think about using them for accessories and the suchlike.

Great sweater bangle here:

felted bag:

or even a sweater pillow:

Aw thanks guys! They're all around 6-7" tall.

As to the fair, yeah it was ok (weather was terrible and it clashed with another big event in town) - bizarrely the majority of people walked straight past without looking but those that did bought more than one at a time. Gotta love small kids who pick things up then cry if mommy or daddy won't buy them!!

Sold a few more at work and gifted some more (it was just before christmas) but did get a couple of commissions which was really fun. Watch this space for my first attempt at a 3D stuffie - a friend has requested one of the BBC 3 ident creatures http://www.tvradiobits.co.uk/idents/bbc3.htm *gulp*

Made these before Xmas but completely forgot to post.

Background is that I was offered a stall at a local craft fair (yay!) but told that they already had too many jewellers (boo!) so I had to come up with a quick craft and made these and a load of crocheted hats and scarves.

I used the tutorial here for the basic method: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ninacuneo/sets/1089577/

Couple more closeups on my flickr

Bit disappointed that I didn't have time to make them more detailed as I think that might have made them cuter... or perhaps I just need more practice at drawing cute creatures.
