1  Storage Ottoman/ Footstool in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by EasilyAmused on: August 01, 2014 05:05:06 PM
Here is an ottoman my husband and I made for a chair in our bedroom. We already had the wood and foam cushion for it leftover from previous projects. We just had to buy feet and fabric. The top comes off for storage.

2  Tiny Photo Album in CHALLENGE 99 ENTRIES by EasilyAmused on: June 06, 2014 04:00:08 PM
You know how you get a sheet of tiny proofs when you develop pictures at the store? I think they are too cute to throw away so I decided to make a tiny photo album with them. I used the proofs from a recent vacation my husband and I took.

It measures about 1 1/8" by 1 1/8" and has 30 photos, plus a few title pages. I used scrap paper for the album cover and scrap embroidery thread to give it detail.

I'm really happy with how it turned out and will probably make more. The size makes it easy & cheap to mail. It would also be neat to have a mini library of tiny photo albums that you could keep at the office.

3  Embroidery Hoop Memo Board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by EasilyAmused on: February 12, 2014 06:31:39 PM
     I made a simple memo board with items I already had on hand. I know there are prettier ways to finish the back but since this is just going up on the wall, it didn't seem necessary. Instead of thumbtacks, I used thick sewing pins to coordinate with the fabric. The cardboard prevents the pins from poking the wall.


    Embroidery hoop
    Quilt batting or stuffing
    Cereal box cardboard

1. Trace circle on cereal box with inner hoop of embroidery hoop. Cut out circle.
2. Cut fabric for embroidery hoop, leaving enough fabric to fold edges over on the back
3. Fill back of hoop with batting/stuffing.
4. Put cardboard over back of hoop and tape fabric down. Use end of scissors to push in any stuffing that sticks out.

4  steamboat willie vintagey tee in Stenciling: Completed Projects by EasilyAmused on: June 22, 2008 10:12:29 AM
my first attempt at stenciling!

it was originally a plain white boatneck tee i hadn't worn in forever. i had planned on keeping it white but since i used a pretty light colored paint on it, there were a lot of spots where it needed more paint that i missed so then i died it a dark color so you could actually see it. i love how it turned out!

5  Seat of Lo00oove for Two! in CHALLENGE 28 ENTRIES by EasilyAmused on: June 01, 2008 06:48:18 PM
my fiance and i made a loveseat from two scratched and cheap chairs from a used furniture store

the two chairs we got

all of the disorder that must first happen

our beautiful loveseat

with a pillow and cushioned armrests

we aren't sure if we like it with the black or fabric armrests better, so we made them interchangeable

thanks for looking!
