1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 90 ENTRIES / Teeny Tiny Bob Ross on: September 05, 2013 10:05:04 AM
I collect patterns from all over the plae. Books, magazines, the internet, etc.
I have no idea where this pattern came from, so credit for the inspiration goes to whoever I got it from.

This is a teeny tiny Bob Ross, cross stitched on 14 count plastic canvas, It is backed with felt and is a fridge magnet.

Hope you like him!

Have not posted in awhile, but I wanted to show this off.
Wire and bead wrapped tree - about 1 foot tall.
I now have no skin on my fingers! LOL!

I will be wrapping the roots around a rock and will put it in a pot...

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Door Decor on: May 29, 2011 02:47:21 PM

Paper towel rolls cut into strips:

Hot glue the strips together into 5 petal flowers and then spray paint the color(s) of your choice:

Hot glue flowers together and hang above/around a door frame:

Got the idea from here:

They used more flowers, but my spot wasn't wide enough for that.

Hope you like!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bag For A Galaxy Tab on: May 20, 2011 09:43:37 AM
Made this for my husband's Galaxy Tab. I had to make it in the  middle of the night because it's the only time the Tab is not in his hands. It's made from neoprene and is lined with a microfiber towel. I used seatbelt straps for the strap. This is for him to use when he is walking or riding his bike. No action shot because of course he took the Tab to work with him, LOL, so I will just have to say that the bag hangs on your back and in no way looks like a purse. The fit is very tight so there is no wobbling around.

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Tiki Wall Hanging on: January 26, 2011 09:09:14 PM
A sushi mat, some vintage binding, fabric cutouts, and a handful of beads.

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Basic Basket For Out Of Control Pills on: November 28, 2010 05:52:18 PM
Nothing special, but I thought I would share anyway.

I have to take a ridiculous amount of pills every day and they were taking over the kitchen counter. I made a basket to hold them all in one place because no matter what else I did they took to walking all over the place, even if no one was in the kitchen....LOL!

Here is the basket:

And here it is in action!

Made from plastic canvas, vintage yarn, and glass beads.
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Fabric.com: They had my fabric!!! on: June 05, 2010 09:12:01 AM
I have been looking high and low for tiki themed fabric. Everywhere I looked either had nothing like that or was out of anything even remotely tiki inspired. I found myself at fabric.com the other day and they actually had some!!  (  http://www.fabric.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=42494767-5596-401d-b4f6-e0424eba6410  )

Normally I shy away from buying fabric online as I can't see and feel it, but I had such a hard time finding this that I jumped on it.
It took 3 days from ordering to receiving the package. And I was thrilled with the quality of the fabric itself. 100% cotton, sturdy, nice printwork, etc.

I am in no way affiliated with this site. I was just so thrilled to find something I have been looking for forever that I just had to share.

Now, I just need to figure out how I will make a quilt out of it.
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A Gift From My Father [woodwork] on: May 25, 2010 08:40:27 PM
My parents have been avid crafters my whole life (and trust me, that's a LONG time...LOL!) and they taught me to be the same way.

My parents came over for dinner on Sunday and I thought I would show you what my dad brought me. I personally think they are the most awesomest things that ever awesomed!!

Here is the group together:

Here is a better view of the elephant family:

The zebra:

The last one is quite possibly my favorite thing EVER! I collect all things tiki and my dad made me this one:

What are they made of you ask? They are made from the "boots" of a sabal palm. The boots are the old dried up palm frond ends that cover the truck/base of the palm. Here is a pic showing the boots:

He cut them off of the tree, cut them into the shapes he wanted/needed and then painted them.
And I LOVE them.
