1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: McCall's 9965 Kids' Chair on: September 29, 2008 08:21:07 PM
I have the same dilimma for the Kids' Chaise Lounge Chair, which is now out of print.  The company "Maudlin Shore" is evidently non-existant now and those pillow forms are NOT standard sizes.  I've searched all over the internet and cannot find any pre-made for the sizes I need.  (McCall's Home Decorating 4120 pattern)
So it looks like I'm going to have to make my own!!!  Angry
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: fabric frames on: March 21, 2008 08:25:34 PM
very easy i just traced the outline of the frames on freezer papers and then cut it out and ironed it on the fabric then cut them out

They look so good!!  But I have a question..what is the purpose of the freezer paper?  Could you have just traced directly on the fabric?  And what is the purpose of the ironing?  Sorry, I've never done this but I'm very interested!

This one totally "ROCKS"!!!  I've printed the instructions and plan to make one myself!!!  I like the Mod Podge idea too, I would probably use it to apply fabric to the box instead of paper.
Thanks for the idea!
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Timtex vs. Fast2fuse??? on: February 20, 2008 04:32:34 PM
I was wondering if I could get some feedback on your experience with these two interfacings.  Timtex seems to be very hard to find these days not to mention it costs a pretty penny, and I hear Fast2fuse is a good alternative. However, isn't Fast2fuse 1/2 the thickness?  Is there a need to double-up?   Any tips would be appreciated.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How do I quilt a purse? on: February 10, 2008 11:39:26 AM
I'm making my first purse for my mom, using Amy Butler's Chelsea bag pattern.  But I think it would be so much cuter if it was made with a quilt look to it, meaning different squares of pattern patched together and quilted on top.  I've made a couple of quilts before so I know the basics, but how do I incorporate this into a purse pattern?

9  COOKING / Dessert / Buttercream-piped baby for babyshower on: February 03, 2008 07:25:21 PM
Here are two cakes I did for a babyshower, both babies are piped from buttercream, the Roland Winbeckler way. 
The first cake was covered with pettinice, I think it's called, which tastes SOOO much better than fondant.  The blanket and bottle is also made using that stuff.
The second cake was covered in buttercream icing.
Diane Shavkin used to have step by step instructions on her site, but now I don't see it.  I would be happy scan my copy and post it for anyone that would like it.

Is that the pan or a cake? Either way you did an outstanding job. If it is the pan, what did you use in place of frosting?

It's the cake, using the Elmo pan.  Thanks!
