1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Storage Ottoman/ Footstool 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  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 99 ENTRIES / Tiny Photo Album 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  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Embroidery Hoop Memo Board 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  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / steamboat willie vintagey tee 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  Florida / Florida: Central / UCF area craftsters!!! on: June 08, 2008 09:42:18 AM
I know there is a central fl thread here, but I thought I would narrow it down to see if there are any craftsters near UCF???

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!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Kool Aid Man costume on: September 27, 2006 11:21:43 AM
For our Homecoming Skit at UCF we need a Kool Aid Man costume. It needs to be durable, but someone has to be able to dance in it. Any ideas on how to construct it and make it look awesome would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Bag Hags on: September 13, 2005 12:18:10 PM
I have to do a  speech in my communications class about a type of culture or co-culture and I thought i would do one about bag hags- seeing as I am one. i was wondering if people could help me to come up w/ a kind of list of qualifications and or definition to consider yourself a bag hag. thanks!!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Prom Dress Help on: April 08, 2005 04:32:52 PM
I am making my dress for my senior prom. So far it's going good. It's a light pretty greenish-blue color. The top looks kind of like a corset (w/out the whale bones) and the skirt part is- flouncy?(I guess thats how to describe it - you know where it flutters out when you spin around).  I am over halfway done but I was wondering if anyone had any tips for making the petticoat to help give the skirt more pouf or if anyone had any ideas on how to decorate the dress to give it more detail (I was thinking some delicate lace). thanks!
