4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Making train tickets, help! on: February 15, 2008 06:12:20 AM
So im taking my hubby on an old fashioned train ride through the country, BUT all i got was a confirmation number on the phone and no actual tickets until that day when we pick them up at the depot.
I want to make some, but how? Any ideas?
Its a dinner train, a very dressy affair (no jeans allowed!), and it runs 2 1/2 hours.

Fancy wording would be nice and also some templates or designs i can add.

These are yoyo trees that i did in no less than 20 minutes. Very easy and fun to do.
The yoyos are different sizes and then i just added pompoms in between.


8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Sewing for Scrapbooks on: August 14, 2007 02:50:54 PM
Before i start on my scrapbook ive decided to gather information. The scrapbook will be what i call "very handmade" right down to making my own paper. I want to incorporate sewing, because thats my first passion, however im wondering the following...
Whats the best way of doing this, will my paper mess up as im trying to do this? Any shortcuts? Hand sewing vs machine?
Overall any information, links, all that good stuff Craftsters are good at Smiley
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Solution to paper making for the visual types on: August 13, 2007 07:05:50 AM
I recommend using youtube.com and search for paper making. There are tons of videos that show up with different methods. Everything from kids making paper, adults, and different types of paper making. Its great. Heres one to get everyone started: http://youtube.com/watch?v=MIF-5ZhxMmA  (if you notice, on the right side, there are links to lots of other videos like this)
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Ugly Stool Turned into Vanity Seat [3 PIX] on: August 07, 2007 06:39:08 AM
So my husband got me a cute vanity but it didn't come with a seat. We had a stool that fit great as far as height and everything, except for one thing, it was an ugly stool that didn't match. So i decided to make a cover for it.
Thinking of how to do it took a bit over 2 days to think about. I didnt draft or mock one, i just cut out a circle a bit bigger than the stool seat, folded the fabric around the circle then sewed to get that pleated look.
I didn't have enough fabric for it to touch the floor like i wanted so it looked like the stool was wearing a skirt. I was going to tie a bow with some left over material around the middle of the stool but it didn't look too great. So I thought a bit more and decided to join the corners together for a neater look and this is what i came up with:

ok so the original isn't that ugly but it just didn't match...


Overall i would say it took me 4 Hours to complete, the needle broke because i accidently sewed over a pin holding the fabric. The fabric is pretty thick too, like drapes so it took me some time to troubleshoot those things. I think its Ok and i see where i would make improvements next time.
