1  A few Appliqued Onesies in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by gluey on: August 24, 2005 08:47:19 AM
I made a few onesies for a friends baby shower. 

I'll start out with the one I'm least pleased with.  Actually the real thing looks better than the pic.  It was a plain white gerber onesie that I dyed orange and sewed fleece hearts on with contrasting thread.

A plain pink old navy onesie with some felt birds.

Another plain white gerber onesie dyed brown (I think it's impossible to find brown baby clothes) with fleece argyle applique.  This one's my favorite.  There's mini argyle on the sleeves too.

An old navy onesie with purple felt skull.

2  Our New Little House (Image Heavy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by gluey on: July 08, 2005 10:11:55 AM
My boyfriend and I were finally able to get this great place.  It's a small one bedroom, but still amazing.  Even has a washer and dryer.  Been spending the last few weeks doing the living room.  Still need to make or refurbish some type of desk for that little nook in the corner...

General view of the living room with couches, rug and hat rack (that we refinished and stained) all from good ol' craigslist:

A good look at the paint job and some projects:
We got a bunch of these wooden craft boxes at Michaels, they were about $1.50 each or something.  Stained them, drilled some holes in the back and added some buttons to a few of the "doors", now we have little display shelves...
Also in this pic are the curtains I sewed.  Used a suit looking cord fabric I found for $2.00/yd (sorry, i like bragging about deals) and used ties as the ties.  Love me the visual puns..

Closer look at the tie ties

The dining "room", not too much craftiness going on here, did score those chairs for $7 at a thrift store though, in surprisingly good condition.

An amazing tree my boyfriend painted.  I thought neither of us had any drawing skills, we were going to stencil or trace or something, but he said "I'll try to freehand it and see what happens..."  Got cheap canvasses at Big Lots, believe it or not, spray painted them brown and he went to work...

Lots of other things (and the bedroom) to work on, but this is what we got for now.  I love it!

Very cool skirt.  To post it in here

1. Right click on the photo where you have it hosted (crafster pic hosting)
2. Click Properties
3. Highlight and copy the long thing that's labeled "address"
4. Now post your message, click on the little thing that says "insert image" like you did before.    but inbetween the two of them paste the address you copied with no spaces or anything.

There you have it!

4  "Embroidered" Broken Heart in Needlework: Completed Projects by gluey on: January 05, 2005 08:49:06 AM
I've never really embroidered before and don't even know how to do any proper stitches.  Frankly, I'm not even sure if this qualifies as embroidery (hence, the quotation marks).  The heart and scissors were done by my boyfriend, now I wish i had done the scissors with thinner thread like I did the words.  The words were the most time consuming, but I think for a first job, it's actually fairly legible.  It was a gift for his little sister.  Hope you like...

Here's mine.  I printed out planner pages and made it a planner.  It's 1/2 page size, when I do it again I think I'll make it 1/4 page it will seem more "put together."  Thanks for the awesome tutorial though!  I'm definitely making more.

6  Re: Plaid Newsboy Hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by gluey on: January 05, 2005 08:39:39 AM
I made one too!  From a men's thrift store jacket, of course.  I even used the lining of the jacket for the lining of that hat.  I used McCall's Pattern 4607, it was surprisingly easy to follow.  The patttern called for buckram for the brim, but I didn't have any buckram...and really don't even know what it is, but i used some so very handy plastic canvas stuff and it worked surprisingly well.

They sell underwear elastic that looks like the kind on boys' underwear, and by "they" i mean, you know, the craft/sewing stores and junk. 

Depending on what kind of underwear it is, that could look cute at the top.

sorry to be uber fan geek, but he was the former bass player for weezer.  And I love your shirt.  For a while before matt sharp came out and started doing solo shows and nobody knew where he was or anythingI I made a few matt sharp shirts.

I actually showed him one at a solo show and he loved it.

9  Moulin Rouge Bedroom in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by gluey on: August 08, 2004 09:54:52 AM
My boyfriend's little sister, she's 15,  has asked me to help (ie, do it for her) her redo her room.  It turns out she really doesn't care what it is.  She went to France last year and loved it, so I mentioned a Moulin Rouge theme and she thought it was cool.  Here are a few of the things I'm thinking -

Deep Burgandy, violet or a very deep fuchia for the walls.  Or maybe using all of those as complimenting colors after deciding on the main color.  With some black and/or gold accents.

Heres my headboard idea, a board with holes drilled in it to make it look like the paris skyline, with another board a couple inches behind it as a base, and a light of some sort in between so it lights up.  Im not sure what color to have this.  Maybe a faux wrought iron finish.

A cheapie fake sorta chandelier from ikea.

Have one wall act as a giant French memo board. The entire wall so she can put pictures, ticket stubs whatever she wants all over it.

Plush red or purple curtains.

Maybe some of those vintage french ad prints that are so popular.  Or more recently I was thinking to use the rasterbate thing to make a big oversized print of one. 

More ideas and pictures to come.
