Thanks!  I'm going to make another batch to give away to my family so maybe I'll post them after I'm finished.

Thanks so much for the tutorial!!  I made these and posted my version here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=331222.0.  I just changed a couple things due to different materials I had and the fact that I couldn't remember how to do a blanket stitch.  Smiley  So cute!!

So I found this link here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=328984.0
and I loved them!  I thought they were so cute, so here's my take on them.

Very cute!  I love polka dots but have yet to use them on the walls- that might have to be remedied soon!  Smiley

MacesMeMe- We did replace the vanity and mirror.  Here's a picture before we finished everything:

So, we bought a house about a year ago that was a foreclosure.  We needed to do a lot of work to even make it move in ready, including ripping out a wall in the shower to fix some plumbing problems.  The bathroom was the first room that we had completely finished and I'm happy with how it's turned out so far.  (I say so far because I still want a new toilet and to replace the flooring.)

Here are some pictures:

During, with the ripped out shower wall:

After: New paint, wainscoting, vanity, mirror, light, shower curtain and rod- pretty much everything but the toilet and floor!!

I LOVE your cabinets!  Do you have directions on how you painted them?  I'm also looking to paint our kitchen cabinets and am looking for good directions.  What paint did you use?  Thanks!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: "vintage" wedding with lots of martha stuart poufs!!! on: March 24, 2009 05:46:19 PM
babycakes-  congrats!!  i checked out your wedding page and your hall does remind me of our place!  Smiley  the things are indeed for sale, where are you located?  i'm not sure how well the glass things would ship- and they are heavy!  was there anything else you were interested in?  i did talk to my sister about the shrug and she said that it would be difficult to do without being able to take her own measurements and have you try it on.  sorry!

let's see- as for advice...  do what you like!  there is so much pressure when you have a wedding from other people to do what is "acceptable" or predictable.  don't let other people's ideas influence you too much.  also, if you are planning on crafting a lot- don't wait!!  some things take more time than you think they will (martha poufs for example) and you don't want to have to give up something because you didn't have time to finish it all.  also, try to get helpers!  try to have a craft day and have friends/family over to help craft!

hope that helps!  sorry it took me awhile to get back to you- i don't normally check this board too often anymore!  Smiley  you can pm me with any other questions you might have though!

julietalpha- some hints!

cut two piece of felt for each "arm" but make sure the inside color piece is shorter (my pieces were about 3 inches and 2 inches)

put LOTS of glue in each piece (i used tacky glue).  it helps to make it more stable and stiff.

i used clothespins to pinch the arm pieces together while drying so that they kept their shape better.

again, LOTS of glue to keep everything together!
